Review: November Ipsy Glam Bag

Em Michelle Phan Pillow Plush Cushiony Lip Balm in "Lollipop"
I've never been a fan of colored lip balms, and this one definitely does  not change that opinion. It's a bit sticky, and I find the color weird on my lips. The packaging is really adorable though, but that's no reason to keep a product around. I'll be giving this away to a friend if anyone wants to take it.

Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon in "Shameless"
My favorite item of the entire bag, this lip crayon is the best raspberry shade I've ever seen. It's a bit drying on the lips, but it's nothing to difficult to deal with. It lasts a really long time and has a matte affect that I like to go for every now and again. Love this!

Naltini Straight Up Color Nail Lacquer in "Caviar Cocktail"
At first I was really unsure of this metallic silver polish, but after the first swipe on the nail I knew I had judged this polish too quickly. It has a really unique look and is unlike all the other polishes I own. I would have never thought to purchase something like this myself so I'm excited to have it in my collection.

Pixi Beauty Bronzer in "Subtly Suntouched"
Another product that I wasn't too sure about but ending up surprising me in the end. This bronzer is incredibly subtle and easy to apply for bronzer failures like myself. It's subtle enough to wear in the winter and blends in nicely.

Starlooks Gem Eye Pencil in "Topaz"
If I see another Starlooks product I may very well cancel my subscription right then and there. I'm tired of these sub-par eyeliners or lip liners. Give me another brand or avoid this category all together because Starlooks is definitely not a quality brand for liners. "Topaz" is also a shade I would never consider wearing unless I specifically created a look around it, and to me that's just too much work.

Cailyn Built-In Sponge Tip Mineral Eye Shadow in "Champagne"
Although I'm also really tired of seeing Cailyn and their weird, annoying packaging, this product actually was pretty nice in the end. It was incredibly pigmented and the sponge tip applicator did a great job reducing fall-out and getting product on the lids. The shade is a beautiful light gold color and overall is very easy to wear. My biggest complaint is the frustrating packaging that makes it impossible for the shadow to easily fit in with the rest of my eye products.

Overall this bag definitely had it's ups and downs. Some months Ipsy just fumbles the ball and brings only a few somewhat good products while the rest feel like a waste of time. 

What are your thoughts on the November Glam Bag?
