Happy November!

I’ve decided that posting my Ipsy Reveal posts later towards the end of the month works better – it gives me more time to truly test each of the products.

That being said, I would like to emphasize that all opinions are my own, period. I will not recommend anything that I don’t love.

Let’s get started!

Bang Beauty Lip Gloss in Spice

I have to be honest — I wasn’t super excited to get my hands on another lip gloss – when I think of lip gloss, I just think sticky mess.

This is a really good, universally flattering shade , but I’m not too keen on the formula – but I will use it every now and then to give my lips a break from my usual matte lipstick.

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Feisty


I was thrilled to receive yet another Tarte product in my Ipsy bag this month. I have a few of these blushes – and I just love each and every shade. This helps give your skin a natural-looking boost of color – its not too pink. I like that it can also be used as an eyeshadow.

Lancôme Hypnose Drama Instant Volume Mascara


This month, I redeemed my Ipsy reward points for this mascara, but I wish I hadn’t. For a product that got a LOT of hype – and has the word ‘drama’ in its name – it’s just OK. It’s just your average mascara.

In this cold weather, you really can never have too many lip care products. This item isn’t your typical lip balm – I love how the formula is almost like a gloss without being sticky. It’s super hydrating and smells amazing – what’s not to love?!

Doucce Freematic Highlighter


I am a fan of the Doucce brand – I discovered their MaxLash Volumizer Mascara through Ipsy and it has become one of my favorites.  This highlighter has a beautiful gold sheen, and adds a subtle but buildable glow to your complexion.

My only issue is with the packaging. Looks like the brand cheaped out by simply giving Ipsy members a pan in a cardboard envelope – no palette to hold it together. Of course, you could put it in a z-palette but you shouldn’t have to.

Brands like Tarte produce miniature versions of their products – for example the blush – while still putting it in a user-friendly, cute compact. I think other brands need to be more considerate of the customer needs.

MAC Prep +Prime Natural Radiance in Yellow

Yaaas, MAC. I absolutely love how this feels on my skin and its easy, lightweight feel. It’s also super moisturizing ! I will definitely be purchasing a full-size of this product.

Overall, I am satisfied with this month’s Ipsy bag – I was able to discover some great new products, while learn more about other brands whose products I wasn’t too familiar with in the past.
