Not In Jersey: November Ipsy Glam Bag November Ipsy Glam Bag - Not In Jersey

November Ipsy Glam Bag

Monday, December 5, 2016

I have been getting the Ipsy Glam Bag for over 3 years now. I always look forward to see what arrives every month. This month’s theme was “Rockstarlet.” Here is what I received:

hand
Delectable by Cake Beauty sweet mint & cream ultra nourishing hand cream – $12 for 4 oz, I received 2 oz, a value of $6:
Get your sugar fix with this delish blend of shea butter, coconut oil, and aloe vera. It leaves our hands super soft and smells crazy indulgent.
25% off orders over $50 at cakebeauty.com with code IPSYMINT until 12/31/16.
My thoughts: I rarely use hand cream so I haven’t opened this in case I want to give it to someone as a gift! I like the fact that it is all natural.

shadow
‘Tini Beauty Eyeshadow in Firestarter – $13:
This rusty-pink shade is our go-to fall perk-me-up for the eyes.
40% off orders over $20 plus free eyeliner with code IPSYONFIRE until 12/31/16.
My thoughts: I feel like I’ve received this before…it looks okay but I usually feel like reddish eyeshadows make me look tired.

mascara
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara – $23 for .27 oz, I received .17 oz, a value of $14.48:
The hourglass-shaped wand grabs onto every single lash while the collagen-infused formula gives us a dramatic va-va-va volume effect.
20% off + free shipping with code IPSTERLOVE2016 until 12/31/16.
My thoughts: Another mascara…this one has great reviews but I still don’t see much difference between all the ones I have tried.

nails
Adesse New York Brightening Base Coat – $18:
We whiten our teeth. But what about our nails? The sheer shade hides and repairs discolorations, makes polish last longer and prevents stains—so tips look younger and healthier. Now that’s a bright side.
20% off + free shipping with code IPSY20 until 12/31/16.
My thoughts: I don’t have time for base coats! Though I see people use it on it’s own for a natural looking manicure, and I might try that as well.

powder
Besame Cosmetics Brightening Vanilla Face Setting Powder – $22 for 6 g, I received 3 g, a value of $11:
A fine vintage that’s neither red or white. The soft yellow powder looks translucent once applied and keeps redness and shine away throughout the day.
20% off with code ipsy20 until 12/31/16.
My thoughts: Another thing I don’t use is powder. I see it can be used on it’s own, and I can see using it instead of foundation for an easy tone corrector.

Once again, I pay $10 a month for these bags. This month I wasn’t as impressed as usual with the products I received.  The value received this month was approximately $62.48, which was more than last month.
