November Ipsy Review

My Ipsy bag came pretty quickly this month. I got my e-mail on Tuesday or Wednesday and it was in my mailbox on Friday... pretty good considering there have been months where I get my shipping notification a week and a half before getting my bag. 

I don't know what happened with my pictures today. I updated my iPhone finally the other day, and since then my pictures are a funny size when I load them on my computer. Anyone else having that issue?

This month's Ipsy theme was Glam It Up. I'm not a fan of the bag this month. Gold snakeskin? I'll pass. But Fynn really likes it and has been carrying it around on her wrist, so at least it will get some use. 

I'm not crazy about this color, but maybe it will be prettier on my nails. I love Nailtini nail polish, it just seems to stay on longer then a lot of other polishes I've tried. That said. $13 for a bottle of nail polish? Not going to happen. 

Love Pixi, love bronzer, so I was happy to see this in my bag. It looks really dark in the jar, but when I tried it on my hand it was pretty subtle, so I know I'll use it. 

Tell me this isn't the longest name every for a lip balm? I was a little nervous when I saw the color of this that it was going to be bring and ugly, but it actually goes on clear with a nice gloss. It's not sticky at all and left my lips feeling nice and soft. I don't usually like tubs of lip balm (because it gets all over my fingers) but I really like this and I know I'll end up using it all. 

I get it, bright red lips are hot right now, but I just keep getting more and more bright red lipstick from boxes and other sponsors... I have NO WHERE to wear bright red lipstick to. Seriously. I'm going to have these until I'm 80 and still not use them up. 

I'm just not sure I'll actually use it. I'm rather minimalist in my makeup use, so eyeliner is a special occasion kind of thing. This is a silvery color, so even when I pull out the eyeliner, I'm not too sure this will be the one I grab. 

TRESemme TRES Two Extra Hold Travel Size Hairspray ($2.14)

I haven't used hairspray in forever, so I was iffy about this. Usually when I think of hairspray, I think about it being sticky and making your hair hard... not the look I'm usually going for. To be honest, I don't really use much hair product, so I don't know if I'll use this. Right now the only thing I really use in my hair besides shampoo and conditioner is the Sexy Hair soy beach spray I got in my July Ipsy bag. 

Overall this month's bag had a value of $76.14. I don't always use everything in my bag, but for $10 a month it's a great deal and a fun way to try out new products.
