November 2017 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

I have been an Ipsy subscriber for over an year. I was a bit skeptical about a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box because I didn't want to end up with a bunch of products I couldn't use or didn't know how to use. Each month you get full size or deluxe-sized products in a cute makeup bag, and I was sold after checking out their previous bags. If you're not very adventurous with makeup like me, it's a great way to build your makeup collection on the cheap and expand your makeup expertise!

The November 2017 glam bag theme was All You and featured real Ipsy subscribers in the campaign. I liked the two-tone bag design and it looks very functional. There were two bag design options this month; a two-toned blue bag and a yellow with brown bag. I liked both designs and I'll be using this to keep all my fall essentials in one place :)

In my bag:
Naked Cosmetics loose powder
Glamour Dolls bronzer
Manna Kadar lip stain
Skyn Iceland lip fix 
Tarte Amazonian Clay blush 

I was very happy to to see a mix of high and low end products this month and I'm always thrilled to get Tarte products :) I rate the November Ipsy Glam Bag a 4/5.

More about the products inside:

Naked Cosmetics loose powder- I'm not the biggest fan of loose powder because I find it really messy but I've learned that loose powders aren't only for your eyelids. This shimmery colour is perfect for mixing with a clear gloss if you're looking to glam up your lipgloss game. I also like mixing loose powders with clear nail polish for a custom nail colour. 

Glamour Dolls bronzer- I'm not familiar with the Glamour Dolls brand, but I loved how buildable this bronzer is. It blends easily and offers the perfect sun kissed glow. I usually only wear a tiny amount of bronzer and you really do only need a little dab to get the job done. I loved the generous sample size of this product but the plastic felt a bit cheap. This felt like "play" makeup but I suppose that was the intent since it's a Lisa Frank collab.  

Manna Kadar lip stain- I love love love a good red lip gloss and this Manna Kadar really is the perfect shade for me. It's labelled as a lip stain but I didn't see the lasting power that was promised. If you're looking for a gloss that acts like a lipstick then this product is for you. It's a smooth and creamy formula that works with everything in your wardrobe. 

Skyn Iceland lip fix- Just when I need it most, Ipsy sends me a lip balm. Ugh they know me so well!! I'm so in love with Skyn Iceland that can't stop using it! It's quickly become one of my top essentials for the fall weather. If you're lip balm junkie like me and you have a lip balm in every jacket pocket and in every purse, it's worth checking out Skyn Iceland. You won't be disappointed. 

Tarte Amazonian Clay blush- This Tarte blush is so pigmented that I only needed to use a little bit on my cheeks to look put together. I've tried many Tarte blushes and I've found them all to be silky and soft. The formula of the Tarte Amazonian Clay blush works for all skin types and blends well with other products. I love!

I was happy with the November glam bag and can't wait to see what December has in store! Did you get the November Ipsy Glam Bag from Ipsy? If so, which bag did you get? Let me know in the comments!
