November Ipsy Review

It's that time again, cupcakes! My Ipsy arrived today and it is by far the best "fall bag" this year. It definitely gives me hope heading into the winter bag months. So the theme this month was "Beauty Blast," and was a nod to the galaxy print that has been so popular this year.

Here was my bag this month:

  • SL Miss Glam Boutique Blusher Brush [$14.50] FULL SIZE
I hadn't heard of this brand before so I did a little research. They are famous for their vegan mink lashes, but they also sell brushes and candles. It's a really soft, luxurious feeling synthetic brush. I can't wait to use it. [Use code SLIPSY for 20% off any purchase]

  • Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara [$7.38 appx] SAMPLE
I only got the chance to try the mascara once before writing this review, but I love the large brush and it is very volumizing.  Also, it has been given 4 out of 5 stars by users on Good pick, Ipsy.

  • ModelCo Highlighting Trio [$22] FULL SIZE
In the shades Champagne peach, bellini, and bronze- a must have! I was in a rush today to get ready for an appointment and this kit was a life saver. It's definitely going in my "on the go" makeup bag. [Use code Ipsy20 for 20% off and free shipping]

  • INSPR Beauty eye shadow [$13] FULL SIZE
All Ipsters received the shade "Carnival." While I am a Colour Pop fanatic, I really love this product. It's soft and the color is beautiful. It's a shimmery champagne with a touch of pale neutral brown. I'm really happy I got it in my bag. [Use code Ipsy2015 for 50% off your purchase]

  • Coolway Stronghold spray [$3 appx] SAMPLE
The one product in my bag that was a bummer, I can't tell you how over Coolway products I am. Definitely won't be using this one. [Use code only4Ipsy to get 35% off and a free gift]

I cashed in some of my Ipsy points for this yummy product, Jersey Shore's pumpkin spice balm. As amazing as it smells and feels, this will be my only one. These bad boys retail for $10. Holy. crap. That is legitimately the most expensive lip balm I have ever heard of.

Total bag value: $62.88 (with $3 figured in for the bag, which is what they normally sell for, and not counting my points reward)
This is the last "fall bag" of 2015 and Ipsy definitely stepped up their game! I am totally throwing an adult temper tantrum they partnered with ColourPop and I didn't get any...but over all it was a great month! Three full size products and the actual bag itself? TOO CUTE. Let me know what you guys think this month. Was your Ipsy bag awesome this month too? I love hearing from you guys! See you for next month's WINTER Ipsy bag review :) Also please let me know if you like that I've started adding promo codes for all the products I got. They are good through November at least.
