Ipsy Glam Bag: Nov 2013

November's "Glam it up" Ipsy Glam Bag definitely delivered on the beauty essentials of glam!
Fancy gold cosmetic pouch to boot.

Glam It Up
The goods:

 A total of 6 beauty glam essentials for $10 (Worth $83.99!)

1. em michelle phan waterliner intense color eyeliner in Emerald.
Retails $20. Purchase it here em cosmetics
 This special glam bag debuted Michelle Phan's new cosmetic line "em"
It's a real treat since Ipsy subscribers were the first to try full sized samples of her products.

 You have to be delicate, the whole eyeliner crayon fell out of the holder when I turned it upside down, I was able to put it back in though. Also the smudge brush will fall off if you pull the cap too much..BUT I found out why! There's a hidden mini sharpener underneath the smudge tool!
 I would've never known!

I do love the color and the smudge brush affect it creates an easy smoky eye.
I have yet to try it on my "waterline" I hope it stays put.

2. Pixi Bronzer in Subtly Suntouched
Retails $18. Purchase it here: pixibeauty

This is a great bronze color for my skin with little hints of gold sparkle, I usually get ones that have lighter tones as well because its just easier to mix them, but I will give this a try. 

The container is cute too!

 3. Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon in Shameless.
Retails $14. Purchase it here: beabombshellcosmetics
One can never have too many lip crayons.

Glossy yet smooth, a burgundy with shimmer, this color is bomb. ;)
I totally don't have a color like this and now I'm glad I do. It's easy to go from sheer to intense. 
Perfect for date night!

4. Starlooks Gem Eye Pencil in Amethyst
Retails $14. Purchase it here: starlooks

I received a Starlooks Kohl eye pencil previously in Obsidian (see post here)
and absolutely love it, I use it everyday. So I was glad to get another.

This time I got a pencil from the "Gem" collection so all of them are metallic. This one in particular is a silver lavender, at first glance I thought it was silver. 

It's gorgeous and goes on easily. Richly pigmented indeed.

 5. Kiss EverEZLashes in Lash #01
Retails $4.99. Purchase them here: beautyonlinesupply

Every girls needs a pair of falsies to complete the glam look. And these are packaged with two pairs, so you can give one to a friend too!

They are also made from real hair so it's very soft. 
Super full eyelashes, these will be fun to try on for a wow effect.

Comes with an applicator tool and glue.

6. Nailtini Straight Up Color Nail Lacquer in Caviar Cocktail.
Retails $13. Purchase it here: tinibeauty

A shimmering gunmetal, served classy and straight up.
Nailtini suggests mixing up their colors for your own cocktail of choice.

I'm looking forward to swatching this, keep up with me on Instagram so you don't miss it: http://instagram.com/thefashionpalate

For those of you who are not familiar with Ipsy Glam bag, it only costs $10 per month and you get at least 5 beauty items & if you provide feedback it will be geared to your liking.

It's always fun to see what other beauty mavens got in their glam bags each month too (they usually vary and mix it up). I've teamed up with fellow blogger Tracy to see what she got in her bag this month!

Check out Tracy's Ipsy Nov. Glam Bag on her blog:


  1. Love that we both got the nail polish this month - that alone is worth the cost of the bag! See, aren't you glad you finally gave in and signed up :) I hope some of "em" products will eventually be sold in stores, I would love to try more of her items, the liner seems nice too..although it's funny that both of our products fell out of the packaging this month.


    1. I was thinking the same thing, also I'm surprised this nail polish is so expensive...it's almost as much as Butter London! Anyways I have to try before I compare brands. ;) Yeah how funny was that, I lol'd when I read your post. What are the odds!?
