Ipsy November

I knew the moment I spilled the contents of this Ipsy Bag onto my desk that November is my favorite out of the three months I've been receiving it.  While I've been over the moon for this subscription in general, the colors I received for this month really, REALLY felt like they were tailored for me!  I want to give Ipsy a big, shimmer-covered hug.

Ipsy Scubscription Bag November

So, if you can't tell, everything is full sized.  I'm pretty sure.  Second... there is kind of a theme going on here.  The colors they sent me feel more 'height of summer' themed, but to be honest this color scheme is my go-to all year round.  SCORE.  I've also been looking for a bronzer so I'm hoping Pixi Beauty hits the nail on the head for me.

em michelle phan lash gallery mascara clean volume in Black - $20.00
Described as the 'flirty' mascara of the set, used to get a natural. soft effect.

Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon in Shameless- $14
Smooth, burgundy lip crayon with shimmer.  It's slightly glossy and very pleasant to apply.  I tried it on for Kevin, who really hates lip color, and he had to contemplate it for a moment.  He said the color actually accents me nicely!

Nailtini Straight Up Color Nail Lacquer in Champagne- $13
This is a sheer, rose-gold polish that is actually a very classy nude.

Pixi Beauty Bronzer in Subtly Suntouched- $18
Pixi Beauty's website describes this as a "medium honey tan".  Has a very, very subtle shimmer.

Starlooks Gem Eye Pencil in Amethyst- $14
Light purple with a metallic finish.  Very shimmery.  Has a smooth application!

BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Baked Eyeshadow Sample in Sun- $0.50
Rose-gold eye shadow with shimmer.  Very lovely nude color that blends out nicely.

The only item I'm not sure I'd wear is the Starlooks Pencil in Amethyst.  It's a beautiful color and a great product, but I just.. I am so Plain Jane when it comes to doing my eyes I'm not sure I'd ever use it.  I'll probably give it a shot, because you know... what's to lose?

I'll put together a look and upload it in the next few days.  Hopefully the procrastination demon stays away.

  1. Nice. I'll telll my girl about this.

  2. Good idea. There are a ton of make up and beauty subscriptions out there but I think this is the general beauty blogger communities' favorite one. Best bang for your buck!
