November 2016 Ipsy Glam Bag Review

My current makeup subscription box is from Ipsy. 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 Ipsy Glam Bag theme was Rockstarlet and I was a bit underwhelmed with what I got. At first I didn't like the bag design when it was first announced, but I was really impressed once I had it in my hands. I got the blue and gold version of the constellation bag and it felt super luxe :) The gold trim was perfect and the zipper pull featured a cute little star, which I LOOOOOVE! This bag felt very different from the others and I wonder if Ipsy got a new manufacturer for this one. Bonus points, Ipsy for sending me a bag I'd actually use as a clutch!

In my bag:

Delectable hand cream by Cake Beauty 

Luxie Beauty rose gold fibre brush
Tini Beauty eyeshadow in Firestarter
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
Adesse New York brightening base coat nail polish

I'm really on the fence with this bag since I've been so spoiled before with awesome things to try in the past. I should really stop swooning over the things I see on Instagram because my bag isn't all that terrible. I rate the November Ipsy Glam Bag a half-hearted 5/5!

The product I was most excited about was the Too Faced mascara. I've heard such great things about it and I just can't find the courage to splurge on the full size. It was a nice treat to get this mascara so I could finally see what all the fuss is about.

More about the products inside:

Delectable hand cream by Cake Beauty- I really like the formula of this cream. I notice most hand creams tend to be super thick or greasy. The Delectable cream was easy to spread and didn't leave a greasy residue on my hands. I liked that this cream absorbed well and smells absolutely divine!!

Luxie Beauty rose gold fibre brush-I like Luxie brushes and it's always a treat to get new tools. I can't say I absolutely love this over any other brand for any particular reason, but I do like the aesthetics of this brush. It's pretty, but that's about it. 

Tini Beauty eyeshadow in Firestarter- This colour is fantastic. Thanks Ipsy for knowing me so well! LOL!! I also really like how vibrant and rich the formula is. It's got the lasting power I need and love :) My new fave!

Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara- I found the hourglass brush shape interesting to use. I was very impressed with the formula. My lashes really did look fantastic and I was so thrilled I finally got to try this mascara. Stay tuned for a full review on this product :)

Adesse New York brightening base coat nail polish- At first I thought this was just another base coat. I was really surprised with how well this polished worked at making my nails stronger and helping the nail polish look more vibrant. This goes on like any other nail polish but really sets the stage for the next step in your nail care routine. LOVE!!

What did you get in your November Glam Bag? I'd love to hear from you!
