Ipsy November 2015 Glam Bags *Spoilers Included*

Recommended Posts

Sorry none of this looks exciting to me, I think it's time to cancel Ipsy. I feel I've just thrown $120 down the drain for the last year. None of the bags have been really fantastic only excited about the Malin + Goetz mojito lip balm I got once. Plus I just bought a year Glossybox sub which was cheaper than a year of Ipsy.

Early access is up! So many things I want! I'm getting:

full exposure mascara

crown brush crease brush

beaute cosmetics gel liner w/gel liner brush (2 brushes in one bag??)

coolway stronghold spray

dermelect ME peptide infused lacquer

 

Really wish I got the Luxie eyeshadow and the Demeter Twilight Orchid roll on instead of that hair spray and the crown brush but overall, I'm excited for my bag.

Trying to cancel mine. Terrible bags consistently. But after this one I decided to pull the plug. I go through the cancellation process, and they say they'll send an email with a link to cancel my acct...but the email HAS NO LINK. Has anyone else experienced this before?post-120300-0-85441000-1446650107_thumb.jpg

Sorry, but I lol'd. They're notoriously hard to cancel.

I got:

 

-Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara - OK

-trestiQue lip crayon - unsure. Their concealer i got from BB was one of my favorite sub finds of the year, but this color looks too dark for me

-inspire angle liner brush - could use, depends on quality

-ModelCo highlighting trio - seems ok

-Coolway stronghold spray - wont use

 

Overall, its an OK bag. not great, but not the worst. I like the bag design itself a lot.

Smashbox mascara

Crown crease brush

Coolway hairspray

Luxie purple shadow

Jelly Pong Pong highlighter

 

All nice things although I am a bit sad missing the demeter. Hopefully there will be a code soon. Their rollerballs are actually pretty affordable.

Good grief more eyeliner!

I've received eyeliner four months in a row!

 

Black starlooks pen in August

Bronze pencil in September

Automatic plum liner in October

Navy blue gel in November.

 

At least they're not all black but, c'mon a little more item variety would be nice. I'm not crazy about my bag this month and I only used one product from last month. Oh well.

I'm getting:

 

Smashbox Mascara - neat

Crown Brush Crease Brush - cool!

Absolute New York Nano Liner - I love felt tip liners and am always down to try a new one

Beaute Basics Sahara Gold Chubby Eyeshadow Pencil - no. I do not want nude colors. I am so bummed to get a boring shadow stick that I could get from NYX when there are colourpop and luxie shadows that look so gorgeous available. I don't care that it retails for 19.99. I am so butthurt about this dumb pencil.

Coolway Stronghold Spray - I'm going to Disneyworld in November, and if I get my bag before the trip, I'll probably use this since it's supposed to be good for humidity. I haven't liked any coolway products I've tried before, though, and .5 oz is pretty small - I have a lot of hair.

 

I got Mai Couture bronzing papiers in my very first glam bag a million years ago, and I love them. I would love to get the blush papier.

 

I would love to get the freeman masks or the pumpkin mask or the nail treatment.

 

I would love to get so many things but not the gold eyeshadow crayon. I am so grumpy.

Maybe if you use a desktop computer it helps? I just canceled my Ipsy account, and there was a link in my email I received. Then clicked it and it said cancellation confirmed so we'll see. I guess November will be my last bag. I just bought a Glossybox year sub so don't need to throw $120 down the drain for the next year on Ipsy.

This month I'm getting-

 

Smashbox Cosmetics Full Exposure Mascara- I don't find mascara samples particularly exciting however it is the one item I use more than anything else. They are very appreciated.

 

Figs & Rouge Mattifying Emulsion Pore Refiner- Seems like it's for oil control and breakouts. The idea of this I like but I don't like how high on the list fragrance is listed. Fragrance is not helpful in skincare. I would rather have my skincare smell like sulfur and have clear skin than to have my skincare smell like roses but contributes to a giant zit. I will try it and hope it doesn't bother my skin because I actually really like products like this. 

 

Mai Coture Blush Papier- Do these actually work or will they just smear my makeup around? The idea is neat and the colors are nice though.

 

Bdellium Tools Studio Blending Brush 776- I love brushes so I'm very happy with this! 

 

INSPR Beauty Eye Shadow in Carnival- This is an interesting neutral shade. I think because I have green eyes I would have been more interested in the ColourPop or even the Luxie Beauty shadows. 

 

Overall not a bad bag. I wish I could have gotten a different color eye shadow or some nail polish. I wouldn't have minded trying the Skin Inc product either.

not too impressed this month:( Would've loved some brow makeup, fragrance, or nail polish but I'm stuck with some pretty cheap and cruddy samples I'll never use:(ne9g8z.png

@@kayla0906 I agree, my bag this month isn't good either. I canceled it, I love the bag design but none of the products. I just bought a year sub to Glossybox and it's cheaper than Ipsy. So it was finally time to cancel Ipsy.

I'm getting:

 

Smashbox mascara- nice brand and handy to have around

Blush papers- I'm probably most excited for these! I have plenty of blush but this is something new for me to try.

Lip crayon- I like the eye shadow crayon I got from them before. Hopefully I get a shade of lipstick that works for me.

Luxie eyeshadow- I like my Luxie brushes but I'm not an eyeshadow person. I don't mind getting them from Ipsy when everyone gets an eyeshadow but it irks me when there are other options. I wish I would have gotten the Gimme Brow instead or the gel eyeliner that never comes my way. I'll try to trade this.

Coolway Hairspray- not excited about his. I suspect no one is.

Trestique mini matte lip crayon eh, maybe

Hi. I'm new to this thread although this will be my fourth Ipsy bag. Usually I'm real happy with at least two items.

 

This month I'm getting:

 

Smashbox Full Exposure mascara- Very happy with this! I love mascara and I'm thrilled to get something from Smashbox.

 

TreStiQue mini matte crayon- waiting to see the color before I decide whether I like it or not.

 

INSPR Beauty angle liner brush - yay! I've been waiting to get some brushes.

 

ModelCo highlighting trio - I'm pretty excited about this too. It looks really nice and I don't own anything like this. Hope it's as good as it looks.

 

Coolway Stronghold spray - I usually get one item I have zero interest in. This would be it in this bag. I'm open to giving it a try though. It may be a convenient thing to keep in my purse.

 

3 things I'm happy I'm getting so I'd consider it a good bag.

This month I'm getting:

 

Beaute gel eyeliner and brush

Sinful colors nail polish

Smashbox mascara

Coolway hairspray

Trestique lip crayon

 

I'm not excited for the eyeliner, but I always love getting brushes in sub boxes. I don't use nail polish so that's a loser for me. I'm excited for the mascara and the lip crayon, but the coolway doesn't do anything for me. Overall, an ok bag this month.

This thread is a little sad. Did anyone get a mysterious survey from Ipsy a while back.  I don't remember all the details but one of the questions hinted at the monthly sub going away or changing. They asked what I would do if Ipsy bags went away or didn't go out any longer and how I would feel.

 

I kinda said uh #longhairdon'tcare and that I'd just get another sub.

 

They also asked how they could improve. I literally wrote "Stop sending mascara, black eyeliner and red lipstick/gloss"  That'll never happen though....

 

Anyway, no idea where or when my bag will be here but I did pick up three chapsticks with my points, I'm most looking forward to them arriving, kinda meh on my bag.  Sad times, Ipsy, sad times.

I just noticed that the new Too Faced Chocolate bon bon palette is available for 1500. If I referred myself 4 times I'd have enough points. Does it count if all of my bag clones are waitlisted?

Ipsy has been disappointing me lately. When I first joined earlier this year it was exciting to be able to look and be surprised about which "special" item I would get, but the lack of variety recently has been upsetting. I hope next month is better then these last two.

I unsubbed on my second account, saw the cute bag and the possibility of Colourpop and Luxie and resubbed again. Tonight I saw my second bags' contents and underwhelming doesn't begin to describe it. 

Smashbox mascara, trestique matte lip pencil (already have Nantucket Nude so I hope to get one of the other two colors), BaB mechanical eye liner pencil (another black eyeliner, suprise!), Albertini pumpkin mask (UGH NO! masks and pumpkin are two of the things I dislike the most, just,... no..) and another dermelect nail polish. However, I don't regret re-subbing. At least not yet, we'll see what December holds and it better be good.

    • Hey guys! I want to make a great gift for my girlfriend, has anyone used this nail polish set from Aliexpress? What do you think? it is a good choice for a gift? Nail Polish Set. Thanks!
    • I made another payment on my credit card, and the remaining balance is now $140.  Yves Rocher Beauty Advent Calendar so far:  Day 1 - Sel D'Azur perfume - I've been wanting to try something from Yves Rocher's extensive line of new perfumes. This one is meant to evoke a walk on the Amalfi coast, with citrus and sea salt.  Day 2 - First Snowflakes Shower Gel - One of the new limited edition holiday products. This is lovely! It's white almond, but less sweet and more powdery than the Perlier White Almond, which I also love. I might have to get the big bottle!  Day 3 - Cream shampoo with avocado - also a new product I haven't tried yet. Very good shampoo that brings out natural waves.  Day 4 - Four sided nail file - A good file that really is effective.  Day 5 - Micellar water for sensitive skin.  Day 6 - Clear base coat for nails.  Day 7 - Face cream for sensitive skin.  I had a really hard time going back to work after Thanksgiving. But after Monday, it's been quite slow, thank goodness. They are allowing people to volunteer to leave early. I never do, even though I feel tired and burned out, because I'm so focused on my financial goals. I have been watching a vlogmas on You Tube from the channel iseedee. This is a Swedish girl who is frugal yet glamorous, and has inspired me in my No Buys. Her vlogmas (or Christmas Countdown 2019 as she calls it), is simple yet so beautiful and cozy. She is so organized, and really knows how to celebrate the holidays. She makes a simple Saturday of doing laundry and going grocery shopping seem special. I guess she personifies what you would call Hygge. iseedee is going through The Body Shop Beauty Advent Calendar. She has the big one with the full sized items. This is the only vlogmas I've been keeping up with.  I've been Christmas shopping (for other people, not for myself, lol), and also I'm going to be organizing the buffet at my church later this month. So I don't think I can pay any more on my credit card until Boxing Day. That's the day I am hoping to pay it off!!! After that I might buy myself a little treat or two, and then organize my plan for the New Year.
