Ipsy Bag: November 2014


Today I am sharing this month's Ipsy Bag. This has been one of my favorite month's in a while. The bag is silver and glittery and I was scared that I was going to yet glitter everywhere but it has a patent coating. I was super excited when I realized this, I love glitter but I hate to get glitter everywhere. Moving on to the pretty cool products.

Be a Bombshell Eyebase in Submissive ($14): This is a light gold eyebase and honestly I wanted to love it but I don't. It was hard to get out to swatch, it was very hard and it took three or four swipes to get a decent swatch. This is totally not worth $14, I have some that I like from E.L.F. for $3 and they are much easier to use. I have several other similar eyebases so this is getting sanitized and going to a friend.

Elizabeth Mott You're so Fine Eyeliner in Glitterati ($17.99): I get excited to try new eyeliner and this was no different. I do love this color its a matte black liquid liner with subtle silver glitter. I can totally see wearing this on a night out or on a Saturday when I do bolder makeup. The only downsides are that it has a brush similar to the one in the Rimmel Glameyes that I didn't like (see here) and the price is more than I would pay for a liquid liner with a brush I don't love.

J. Cat Beauty Wonder Lip Paint in Red Potion ($4.99): This is another product I am excited about, I haven't tested in on my lips yet but its something between a stain and a lip tar. The color fits with my fall berry obsession (see here). I hope that this works, but I haven't had a chance to try it my lips because they have been super chapped.

Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Argan Oil Hairspray 1.5oz ($8.30 for 9oz.): I have not tries this product yet, but here are my thoughts. At first I thought this was just the oil in aerosol form and I got really excited because I hate putting oil in my hand to put in my hair and aerosol seemed exciting. I was a bit disappointed to learn that this is hairspray, because I don't like aerosol hairspray, I like pump bottle hair spray. I will probably save this for traveling.

Temptu S/B Highlighter in Pink Pearl .33oz ($27.50 for 1oz.): This product scares me, there I said it. I barely use highlighter anyway but this is liquid and that scares me. That being said this is really pretty but too iridescent for me to feel comfortable with it without experimenting. I was think this product is really expensive but I bet an ounce would last for ages. I am clearly on the fence on this one, but I think it will be fun to play with.

Overall this bag was pretty awesome and the value for $10 is amazing. Three of the five products were full size. 

Bests, Cittie

    1. Thank you. I will be adding a new lip swatch of the lip paint its more magenta on the lips.

  2. I totally relate. Glitter is awesome, just not when it's stuck on you for 3 weeks. The bag is way cute. :] // ▲ itsCarmen.com ▲
