This month’s glam bag wasn’t a disappointment either. I am still impressed with it. I kina like being subscribed because it has done a dramatic cut on my impulsive makeup spending. since I get new items to try every month I have stopped randomly purchasing items “in case” I get em’ in my glam bag.
November’s glam bag theme was Party Perfect
The bag was- $10.00 as usual
1 brown makeup bag
Nailtini Nail Lacquer in Millionaire- $13.00
Chella Defining Eyebrow Gel [Sample]
Starlet Intense Eyeliner in Black- $11.00 [equivalent]
bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie lip-gloss in Daredevil-$18.00
theBalm Meet Matt(e) eye shadow palette in Matt Batali [Sample]
so all in all this was worth: $42.00
The Makeup Bag
The bag was plain but very sturdy. Not made of flimsy cheap material. and it was just the perfect size. not too small, not too big.
Nailtini Nail Lacquer in Millionaire
Claim: Introducing Millionaire nail lacquer from the new Nailtini “Speakeasy” Collection chosen specifically for the ipsy community. Millionaire spikes a base of rose gold micro-glitter with iridescent gold and teal tinsels for statement-making nails, whether worn alone or as a dazzling special-effect topcoat. The only line of lacquer developed to maximize the creativity of the user by "cocktailing" different shades, Nailtini serves up endless color possibilities with amazing performance, hip sensibility and tongue-in-cheek attitude. Always 3-free, made in the USA and never tested on animals.
Coats: for a full look, 2-3
Pros: beautiful color, shiny!
Cons: gets dull within hours without a topcoat, would fall off your finger if you layer more than one without a base coat, chips without a topcoat.
Comment: I honestly don’t hate this polish. it’s pretty, its nice. but I wont buy it at such a price, I feel like there are better brands that would sell cheaper.
Will buy again?: no
bareMinerals Marvelous Moxie lip-gloss in Daredevil
Claim: Unleash your inner Moxie with a fabulously full, pillowy pout. This luscious lipgloss delivers sheer, vivid color and a shiny mirror-like finish that lasts for hours. Infused with natural ingredients, exotic oils, botanical extracts, and antioxidants, the refreshing formula smoothes and hydrates lips for superior comfort.
this rating means it has shine which is a negative for me, however if you love shiny lipsticks and lipglosses its 3 stars for you (5-2)
Comment: beautiful color! I hate lipglosses but I will give this one an exception, its perfect for that on the go look. its pretty shiny but not over the top and it looks great on lipstick and alone as well! <33 the color so much
Pros: awesome fall color, not extremely shiny and not sticky at all!!
Cons: the only con I have against it is my personal vendetta against lipglosses lol
Will buy again?: it’s a lipgloss so…no. lol maybe if I get back into a lipgloss rave…I would buy a lipstick this color though from bareMinerals…
Chella Defining Eyebrow Gel
Claim: This clear colored brow gel lifts and holds eyebrow hairs and grooms them into place. The application tool helps remove the guesswork. Use sparingly.
Comment: I saw nothing special in it. I never know how to use brow gel lol. it works well as a clear mascara though, it separates lashes and moisturizes. I use it at night and mix it with Vaseline for lash growth.
Will buy fullsize?: no
Starlet Intense Eyeliner in Black
Claim: These creamy eyeliner pencils glide on to deliver a lasting vibrant color in chocolate or black. Blend or line your lids to create your favorite glam look, whether a smoky eye or straight line wing tip.
Whether mysterious, alluring, glamorous or cute, your eyes are the first step to creating and transforming your look. This smooth, creamy pencil glides on easily to deliver dramatic, solid color that won’t smudge or fade. Available in six chic shades for lining, shading or highlighting your eyes.
Comment: I was so excited when I got this eyeliner just because I thought they were gonna send me brown, but instead I got black! yay! I love this eyeliner its smuge proof (pic above- second line…after wiping with my finger) and if you notice the first line was from the day before when I shot the video! it didn’t even come off after that.
Will buy again?: YESS
theBalm Meet Matt(e) eye shadow palette in Matt Batali

Comment: I’m not too much of a fan of matte eyeshadows. I like the drama and the sparkly shimmery ones…mostly baked. I am in love with baked eyeshadows! so this doesn’t excite me much! its ok, perfect for the smokey look…yepp another smokey to add to my collecion…I did have a problem with the packaging though. there was a fingerprint when I opened it (it wasn’t sealed too)…but it’s a sample so I brushed it off.
Will buy fullsize?: no
Well that’s my ipsy bag for NOvember! overall I loved all the fullsize items, and really didn’t care for the samples. I still think its worth the ten bucks, cant wait for December’s glam bag!
Thanks for reading!!
