Ipsy Review : November 2018

For those of you who don’t know about this subscription bag it is  $10 and contain 5 deluxe size samples (and sometimes full size products)  each month.

Ipsy starts with a beauty quiz that asks you questions about different things you like as well as your different features (i.e. Blonde hair, green eyes, fair skin). Each month you also can review the products your received; so if you love something you let them know and if you hate something you let them know.

Lets get into this months bag!


The bag this month is super cute with a durable material that feels nice. It has a purple/deep blue back ground with black hearts all over it. I really love the cute simplicity of this bag. Now for the products!


Timeless Beauty Bar; Glam & Glow and Up in the Clouds Sheet Masks

I will save the pain of being a broken record. I love these and I’m excited to use them on my up coming vacation. My skin always gets dried out when I travel and these are the perfect, easy and travel friendly way to bring a mask with me to keep my skin on point.

Tarte; Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush; Shade- Quirky

These Tarte blushes are amazing! I love the size of the sample we get in our bags because it really will last quite a while. This shade is stunning as well! It’s a nice peach shade which is one of my favorite blush colors to wear. I also love the formula on this product. It’s smooth and soft and applies to the skin like a dream! A definite win for the bag this month!

Jelly Pong Pong; Cosmic Light Loose Pigment; Shade- Pulsar

Loose pigments are always fun to get in subscriptions because even at a sample size you get good bit of product that will last a long time. I don’t know about you but I don’t use a loose pigment every day so I always get long term use out of my pigments. This shade is for sure a new on for me. I don’t personally wear a lot of blues but this shade is really beautiful! I feel like this would be fun to do a icy wintery look with. It might come in handy for costume make up next Halloween.

Ciate London; Mini Translucent Setting Powder; Shade- Hideout

Let me just start off that this is by far the SMALLEST sample size powder product I think I have ever received. I forgot to take a comparison photo but this thing is small…I think the cap is maybe, maybe as big as a quarter. I just think this isn’t even worth putting in the bag for the pure fact that its almost impossible to use! The only brush I can fit in the opening is a fluffy eye shadow brush which is difficult to use to set my make up. This is just a frustrating size. As for the powder itself I’m not sure how I will like it. When I put a small amount on the back of my hand it had a pretty strong white cast, which scares me. Not that I plan on taking flash photography every day all day but powders with a white cast tend to wash me out all on their own. I will see how I like this and update later on.

NYX Professional Makeup; Velvet Matte Lipstick; Shade- Volcano

Is that a full size lipstick I see?! You bet it is! I love when we get full size items in the glam bag! It just makes it all that much more worth it! This is a stunning lipstick. The shade is perfect for this season and the formula is really nice. It applies pigmented and soft on the lips. The only down side I have found with this is that it picks up on all the lines and any texture I may have on my lips. Given that the weather has started to change my lips can sometimes get dry and this clings to any and all dry patches. I do really like NYX make up and this lipstick will be a fun addition to my collection.


That concludes my Ipsy glam bag for November! What did you get in your bag this month? Did you love what you got? Could have been better? Leave me a comment and let me know!

Thank you for stopping by and keep an eye out for what might be up around the curve!
