ipsy November 2016 Glam Bag Review

November 2016 ipsy Bag
I love the constellation design! It was out of this world 🙂
In October, I loved that the ipsy bag had the ghost heart-eyed emoji as the zipper. This month I am a big fan of the star as a zipper. In the past ipsy zippers tended to be a circle with “ipsy” in the middle. This definitely seems like an upgrade and makes it more fun!
OFRA Cosmetic (or cosmic if you want to stick to the stellar bag design theme) Laboratories Banana Highlighting Powder. It can be used as a highlighter, a concealer, or as a setting powder for concealer. Light, durable, and versatile!
Skone Cosmetics Brow Wand Eyebrow Pencil in Chocolate. I have dark, thick eyebrows as it is and do not find myself reaching for eyebrow products. The only product that I really use is a tweezer. I ended up throwing this into my swap pile which is why it was not swatched.
theBalm Mad Lash Black Mascara. I seem to have gotten theBalm brand recently (Hot Mama! Blush, Mary Lou-Manizer, and Nude Dude) either in bags or through swaps. I don’t mind! Their products have been durable the eyeshadows have been well pigmented, in my experience. However, I will end up swapping this one out too simply because I have too many mascaras as it is (beauty probs, amirite?) but it does appear to have a bold black formula and the brush alone was tempting.
Freematic Blusch Doucce in Zen Orange #49. Although I really liked the packaging for this blush, it was not enough for me to want to keep it. I am also adding this to my swap pile because orange is not my color. I prefer a light pink touch of blush.
hey honey Open Your Eyes Eye Contour Lifting Fluid. hey honey is a brand that I have recently come to love. I got their 24Seven: Day and Night Revitalizing Cream in a previous glam bag and fell in love with how well it worked with my face. It smoothed my face overnight and I remember it having a light lovely scent. I have complete faith that this formula will help my puffy, slightly baggy eyes look refreshed.

It was not the most successful bag that I have received but I do want to do a quick shout-out to the ipsyCare team.  I just got this bag a week ago (December 7) because of some shipping issues.

Long story short: the mailperson scanned in my package but it never made it to my mailbox.

Silver lining: I got the bag eventually.  I should have contacted ipsyCare at first because I would have gotten it much faster.  I battled with the mail service for about 2 weeks before they finally declared that it was officially “lost”.  I then went to ipsy’s website and contacted “@ipsyCare” and filled out the form.  About 3 hours later (only 3 HOURS!) a replacement bag was already issued! Not only was the problem resolved quickly by the time I got to ipsyCare, but I got the EXACT same items in my bag that I was originally promised would be in my lost bag.  Since ipsy is a sample service and because it had been a few weeks since my bag was put together, I expected to get whatever they had left.  It was a fun surprise to see the exact items I had been originally expecting.  (P.S. Melody at ipsyCare, you rock!)
