Ipsy - November 2013 Reveal

Hello Everyone! I hope all is well with each and every one of you as we get closer to Thanksgiving, all I can think about is Christmas. It's like all the stores decided hey were gonna skip all the holidays this year, and just go straight to Christmas! Which in return is making me super excited, and its not even December yet. I find myself constantly making references to Christmas, when reviewing my makeup. Please tell me I'm not the only one? haha. Anyways, let's get straight to today's topic....

The Products


BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Baked Eyeshadow Sample - "This Galaxy Chic Baked Eyeshadow Sample will take you from Plain Jane to an infinite trendsetter. Inspired by the moons and planets of the universe, eyeshadow shades range from hot sun-orange to cool earth-blue and colors of the Milky Way. Be as chic as a sparkling star!" Ipsy subscribers who receive this product will receive Sun, Aphrodite, Neptune, Asteroid, or Eclipse. I received the color asteroid, and it shocked me and I loved it!
I thought it would go on maybe blue or purple, nope! It went on almost like a smokey gray color with highlights of blue in it. The pigment is wonderful in this shadow, and when I get the money I plan on ordering the whole palette which is a little less than $20 with shipping, and the discount code Ipsy20. This color will be great for a smokey eye, and I am intrigued how you never know by just looking at it what the color will be.  
Em Michelle Phan Lash Gallery Lengthening Mascara - In the Ipsy bag this month there were 6 products instead of the usual 5 in order to introduce the new line by Michelle Phan. I wasn't too thrilled when I saw that it was mascara, but I tried it and I am impressed. It really highlighted my lashes, and the curved brush is perfect to get the product on every lash. I look forward to trying other products from this line.
Nailtini Straight Up Color Nail Lacquer - There were two different colors you could have received, the Champagne and (what I received) the Caviar Cocktail. This is a pretty shimmery gray color, and is not a color you usually see a lot in nail polishes. I am sure it would look great alone, but I plan on mixing and matching colors with it. It was my least favorite product I received, but I do know at some point I will get some use out of it, so its not much of a disappointment.
Be A Bombshell Lip Crayon - "A glossy lip crayon with a smooth texture that is perfect for travel and touch-ups on the go."

To use: "Apply to top and bottom lips for full coverage. For sheer coverage, apply to lower lip only and blot lips together. For more color, apply several coats until you receive desired results."

Ipsy subscribers who receive this product will receive Hot Damn or Shameless.
Out of the two, I was really hoping for Hot Damn. And what do you know, I received it!! I already have a lot of lip crayon's. I really like this one, its different from the others in the way it goes on so smoothly. Even though I am very light skinned, it looks phenomenal on me.
Starlooks Gem Eye Pencil - "The Starlooks Gem Eye Pencils provide a magnificent metallic finish and are so versatile, soft, and creamy that they can be used as a liner or eyeshadow base! Each highly-pigmented, unique pencil has a gorgeous, micro-glitter finish." You could received wither topaz or amethyst. I received the color topaz, and to me it looks more silver than anything. I do not see Topaz, but maybe that's just me. Regardless though, it's still a very pretty eye pencil and will work well for highlighting the eyes with.

Here is a close up, so maybe yall can get a better feel for what the color really looks like.
Pixi Beauty Bronzer - "This bronzing powder gives your complexion the warmth and luminosity of naturally sunkissed skin. Hydrating, silky-smooth & long-wearing, it also protects against free radicals. Contains Vitamin E to protect the skin and mica, which provides dense natural pigment."

 Ipsy subscribers who receive this product will receive Subtly Suntouched or Summertime.

I received the color Subtly Suntouched, which is perfect for my lighter skin tone. It's hard to get the true color of this with a picture, you just have to see it in person. This is my favorite product in the bag, and is a product that I will use everyday once my other bronzer run's out. I hope to see more Pixi products in our bags in the future.
Overall, I am very satisfied with my Ipsy bag. I can't wait for December (which is also the month of my birthday!) You truly can't beat the quality of the products nor the quantity for only $10!!! Again, if you decide that you want to sign up for Ipsy below will be an invite just for you.
