Ipsy GlamBag: November 2013 Review

This post is super late, but I still wanted to do the review just because all the items were super awesome, and it would be a shame to not review this month.
Especially since, the month before that, the review was quite a negative.
This month (November) we received six items instead of just five, to celebrate the Anniversary of Ipsy. Most of the items were full sized with two being kind-of samples but still a good size for it.
What is in the bag:

  • em michelle phan waterliner intense color eyeliner in Sunshine Yellow-$20.00
  • Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon in Hot Damn-$14.00
  • Nailtini Straight Up Color Nail Lacquer in Caviar Cocktail- $13.00
  • Starlooks Gem Eye Pencil in Topaz- $14.00
  • BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Baked Eyeshadow in Neptune [Sample]
  • Pixi Beauty Bronzer in Summertime [without kabuki brush]- $18.00 [with Kabuki] est worth without brush [$7.00] Total Bag worth= $68.00

    The Bag
    The style of the bag was really nice and chic. A gold bag with a snakeskin feel & pattern. It is very enticing and eye-catching. Love it!

    Inspired by the girl whose eyeliner is a desert island essential. This richly pigmented liner grabs everywhere, including your waterline—without budging or smudging. Dark shades define. light shades brighten. It's the perfect accessory for your eyes.

    This was one of the nice em michelle items we received as a bonus from the anniversary. I am in LOVE with this eyeliner it works perfectly on my waterline (it is made for it) and it shows even on the wet areas, makes lining that area so easy!!  It lasts all day and it is smudge free! I am glad I got it in this color, this was the exact color I was hoping for. (YAY!!) I will definitely repurchase this item regardless of it’s price.

    Pigment: 4/5
    Shine: 4/5
    WIll buy again?: Yes
    The color of this lippie is amazingly beautiful! Its like a red with a hint of coral in it. It has kinda a waxy feel to it (like Beeswax) and its very smooth and almost matte, not glittery or excessively shiny. I love it! The only downside to this lippie is that it doesn’t last too long.

    DSC07737 DSC07738 Glamour is an attitude as much as a look, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't look the part...all the way down to your fingertips! Just in time for the year's most glamorous season, nailtini is serving ipsters gorgeous nails in two shimmering shades - icy golden Champagne and molten pewter Caviar Cocktail. The perfect finishing touch to glam it up head to toe!
    Just one of Nailtini's top-shelf, 3-free nail lacquer, available in dozens of shades, textures and finishes. Wear them alone or layered to create custom looks and effects, each one a cocktail unto itself. Cheers to beauty, and as always, apply responsibly!
    Pure, all-premium nail lacquer in gunmetal gray spiked with shimmer.
    Coats: 3/5
    need just 1-2 coats
    Drying:  2/5
    dries pretty fast
    Shine:  3/5
    without a topcoat, it can be pretty dull
    Intensity:  4/5
    color is intense and pretty, reminds me of pencil lead. (back in the day, we used lead on our fingers as kids lol-this definitely brings memories) Total Rating: [3.75/5]
    Will buy again?: yeah
    DSC07742 DSC07745 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
    I honestly don’t know what to use this eyeliner for. It is indeed very pretty and extremely pigmented, but I don’t think it looks nice on me as an eyeliner. One can double it as an eye shadow for a Smokey look; however I have many colors like this: It does apply really creamy and smooth and would blend well for an eye shadow. But there is one downside to this eyeliner, it doesn’t last long at all (definitely would need a primer before use).
    DSC07747 DSC07749This Galaxy Chic Baked Eye shadow Sample will take you from Plain Jane to an infinite trendsetter. Inspired by the moons and planets of the universe, eye shadow 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, Asteriod, or Eclipse.
    This color is BEAUTIFUL! I am so tempted to buy the whole palette by BH cosmetics, I love how pigmented it is and it applies smoothly!! such a pretty color!!

    DSC07753 DSC07754 DSC07752This 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.

    I love this bronzing powder, it applies smoothly, easy to blend, has a nice glow to it. However it is quite limited in the color spectrum. I wish it came in darker shades, it barely shows up on my skin. I don’t have much use for it as a bronzer. In fact I use it as a blush/highlighter lol.

    Well that is all for last month’s bag, it has taken me forever to do this post. I will try my best to do the December post ASAP.
    So far I found this bag quite useful! I extremely loved 4 out of the six items given to us, and I have a meh feeling about two of them. so I give this bag a rating of 5/6

    Rating: 4/5
