Hey everyone! I am so happy to be back with a new blog post today! It’s the end of the month, which means that it is time to share and review what I received in my November Ipsy glam bag! I’ve always loved experimenting with new beauty products, and I was looking forward to this month’s bag!
This month, Ipsy reminded their members that it’s ok to indulge this holiday season, and to treat themselves with some new beauty! I really liked the #BePresent theme, and I absolutely loved the bag! I love the three different shades as well as the pop of color on the zipper! I felt that it was the perfect bag for November! I rated my overall bag 4/5 stars because I was very happy with the products I received.
Inside the bag:
- 111SKIN – Y Theorem Day Cream NAC Y2 (my pick)
This is the product I chose to receive this month, and I am sad to say that it was not my favorite. When I tried this day cream, I first noticed how strong the scent was. I think it is probably best to avoid overpowering scents in facial products because it can irritate sensitive skin. I also have acne prone skin, so I try to be careful with this. The cream felt a little bit thick on the skin. The product includes anti-aging ingredients, vitamins, and antioxidants. I may need to try it again, but for now, I am not sure what I would rate this product.
- Avette – Fresh Clean Coconut Mild Foam Cleanser
I was in need of a new cleanser, so I was happy to see that this was in my bag! I’ve used it a few times, and I have to say, I really enjoy foam cleansers! This one felt light, and I felt like it truly was cleansing my skin. It did have a somewhat strong scent, but this one smelled more fresh than the day cream. I plan to continue using this product, especially after wearing makeup or after long days. I rated this cleanser 4/5 stars.
- Bobbi Brown Cosmetics – Vitamin Enriched Face Base
I haven’t had too much of a chance to try this out, but I was able to use it a couple times. I was really excited because I had never tried any Bobbi Brown products before! This primer made my skin soft, and it made applying foundation a smooth and easy process. I was able to blend out my foundation beautifully! This product doubles as a moisturizer, and my skin did feel hydrated after applying it. The ingredients are very beneficial for the skin as well (it includes: shea butter and vitamins B, C, and E). I rated this product 4/5 stars.
- CONTEXT SKIN – Matte Lipstick in Sweet Emotion
I was thrilled to see that I would be able to try out a new lipstick! What can I say? I am a lover of lipsticks! The shade is something I normally would not go for, but it is absolutely perfect for fall! It is more of a rusty nude color, and it can be worn with a variety of makeup looks. It is creamy and applies easily as well, but I wouldn’t say that this is a matte shade! For me personally, I would recommend keeping the eyes very simple and natural and adding some color with this lipstick! I rated this 5/5 stars.
- Eyeko – Rock Out and Lash Out Mascara in Carbon Black
I did not have high hopes for this mascara, but I was pleasantly surprised when trying it out! The wand is a unique shape, and it did make the product just a little bit difficult to apply. I really loved the way that this mascara made my lashes looked fanned out and it lengthened them pretty well. I had to apply a couple coats, and there was a moment when I thought it was beginning to clump my lashes, but it actually separated them well! I think this is the perfect everyday mascara! I rated this 4/5 stars.
