Glam Bag Unboxing: November 2016


If you are an Ipsy subscriber, then you’ll know the theme for the November glam bag is Rock Starlet.  I didn’t even know that was a thing until I got mine in the mail!  But apparently it is a thing, and it’s not to be confused with the other “rock” themed Ipsy bags.  The other rock bags had a bit of a punk vibe, and this definitely does not.  The addition of the term “starlet” makes all the difference!  The theme focuses on spotlight moments and performance-ready glam.  Everyone’s glam bag turns out a little differently, but I felt like mine reflected the November glam bag theme pretty well.

ModelCo Instant Brow Pen – Medium/Dark

I haven’t really covered brows a lot on my blog here…and that’s mostly because they are not my hobby horse of the makeup world.  That might be crazy to those whose entire world revolves around their eyebrows.  I wish I knew how to do them the way you do.  But I’ve always like my natural eyebrows, and haven’t found a product that I think is significantly better than my natural brows.  I’m interested in trying this one because it’s a pen, and so it won’t make my eyebrows gummy or slick.  <–Neither of those are looks I’m going for.

theBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash Mascara

Maybe brows aren’t my thing, but eyes totally are.  Especially lashes.  Even though I am in a completely committed friendship of utility with my L’Oreal Telescopic Carbon Black mascara, I’m always open to trying a new mascara.  And laughing at how poorly it compares to L’Oreal.  Just kidding!  Kind of.

Benefit Cosmetics the POREfessional face primer

I’m currently using the Maybelline Master Prime face primer, but I would love to compare it to this one.  Truth be known, I’ve been dying to try this product for quite some time now.  It was one of the first “high end” products that I wanted to get after watching it used in a million youtube makeup tutorials, but I could never swallow the price tag.  I like spending that kind of money on skincare.  But there is always the argument that it doesn’t matter how good your skincare is, if you continue to put less-than-desirable products on it (NOT that Maybelline is less-than-desirable).  Basically, I probably shouldn’t belittle the importance of a good primer.

pur-lisse Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer

Speaking of skincare, receiving this product made my day!  I have been running low on the Clinique moisturizers I have been using, and so this came at the perfect time!  This product is a fusion of Asian hydration and French luxury.  It is a lightweight moisturizer composed of marine plants, white tea, and vitamin E.  Yes, please!

SLMissGlam  – W20 Angled Eye Brush

This might be my very favorite item in the entire November glam bag!  It is.  I have received quite a few makeup brushes during my time as an Ipsy subscriber, but this is by far the nicest brush I have been sent.  It is so feminine and delicate, just like all of the SLMissGlam products.  The fibers are vegan and the handle is basically the cutest I have ever seen on a brush.  This is such a treat!

That’s a wrap for my unboxing!  If you’re an Ipsy subscriber, what did you get in your November glam bag?  If you’re not an Ipsy subscriber, and would like to become one, just follow this link.  Doing so will not compensate me in any way, but will give my Ipsy account some bonus points that I can use on fun products!  Thanks for stopping by and reading!
