Ipsy Review - November

Ipsy time!
This is one of my favorite times of the month….I love getting this bag in the mail! For the cost, $10 including shipping, it is such a great deal. If you are looking to start a beauty subscription, I would try Ipsy first. You can’t really beat that! Getting makeup in the mail is just so fun!
The theme of this month’s bag is “Beauty Blast” and relates to space I believe, judging from the galaxy looking makeup bag that came along with it. The bag is so totally not my style. I don’t really see how the actual products relate to them theme, but oh well.
Next up…the November Ipsy bag! 

1) Cool Way Strong Hold Spray – .5 oz.
This seems to be another brand that I am starting to get a lot of in my beauty boxes and unfortunately it’s a brand I’m not particularly fond of.  This product is just a hair spray though, so hopefully I like it! I can say, one of the things I don’t like about this brand is how their hair products smell. My hair is near my face, so I get whiffs of it often! This doesn’t smell terrible, but it is still an odd smell, almost like….oranges?
Full Size: $19.95 for 3.3 oz. My Value: $3.02
2) Model Co. Highlighting Trio in “Champagne, Peach Bellini & Bronze ” – .04 oz. each (FULL SIZE)
I’m not much into highlighting creams, but if I did use them this one doesn’t look very appealing. It actually looks pretty greasy to me. I like the idea of the three different colors though; I think it helps to match various skins tones.
Full Size: $22.00 My Value: $22.00
3) INSPR Eyeshadow in “Carnival”  – .05 oz. (FULL SIZE)
I don’t really have any reaction to this product.  The color isn’t ugly by any means…but I guess it just bores me. I prefer shadows in palettes honestly, so I don’t see myself getting a ton of use out of this. Full Size: $13.00 My Value: $13.00
4)  Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara in “Jet Black” – .14 oz
I am excited to try this.  For the past several months I have been using different mascara samples, so this one will be next! I hope it lives up to the hype!
Full Size: $20.00 for .32 oz. My Value: $8.75
5)  Crown Pointed Crease Makeup Brush – (FULL SIZE)
I got a similar brush in my Boxy Charm box this week, though it is marked as a concealer brush.  I already have a few shadow brushes I like (though none are for my “crease”) so I won’t get a lot of use out of this.
Full Size: $4.95 My Value: $4.95
Final Cost: $10.00
Final Value: $51.75
I don’t love this month’s bag.  The only thing that saves it for me is the mascara! At least that and the value of the hairspray add up to what I paid for the bag, so no waste here.  The total value of the bag is, as always, great!  You always get your money’s worth with ipsy.
What are your thoughts?

(As always, I swear I’m not a review blog….I just like sharing these things in hopes that other people will get to have the same fun that I do!  I am not compensated in any way.)
