This month was by far the best ipsy bag I have gotten so far. I received 6 products in this month’s “Glam it Up” bag. I’ve already used 5/6 of the products and I have no complaints. Let me break them down for you and then we’ll go one by one.

I have nothing negative to say about this waterliner. It goes on smooth. It’s rich in color and it stays! That’s the most important part about something that is going to be on something constantly moving (your eyes!). I think grey compliments lots of skin tons and it works even on us red heads.
I wore this today and it lasted all day, no joke! Still sparkly, still shiny. It lasted through a quick trip to the gym. I’ve had it on since 7AM and it’s now 9PM and it’s still there. I give this an A+. I recommend doing a thick line of this eye pencil as an eyeliner and then putting a sharp liquid liner on top of it, thin enough for the sparkle to show through.
I can’t seem to find this anywhere sold online without the Kabuki brush. I’m estimating it at a $3.50 value because it’s sold at $18.00 with the brush and we were given about a 1/3rd sample of the actual bronzer. That’s okay though because it’s perfectly sized for me. I’m fairer skinned and do not really benefit from a darker bronzer. This has a perfect semi-matte finish that really blends. I’ve only used it once this morning but I really like it so far.
SQUEEE!! I am so excited about these. They’re sold at Walmart and Walgreens. This means… if I can finally perfect the art of fake eyelashes I can easily repurchase! They’re also inexpensive. $4.25 and I have an applicator and 2 sets of eyelashes. I’ll let you know when I get to use these. This was the only product I haven’t used yet out of the ipsy November bag.
I had to put this on ASAP. I love that the gun metal grey is in this fall. Perfect nail polish in this ipsy bag! This is one coat over the last nail polish I had. Read: I was too lazy to take off my old nail polish because I had 10 minutes to get out the door and I HAD to try it. Worth it.
I will be the first to admit that I got a Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon in a previous ipsy bag and I barely used it. I don’t think it was a good color for me, but this shameless shade? PERFECT.
I honestly don’t always find a use for everything I get in my glam bag but this month was above and beyond my expectations. I have to hand it to the ipsy team and of course it’s co-founder and curator Michelle “Mish” Phan.
(Side note) I love that Michelle is so committed to interacting with her fans. Last night I had a fangirl moment because she responded to me on Instagram and complimented my eyebrows. Funny how something you’re so self conscious about can be clouded by your own doubt and nick picking when it’s really a strength.
