Ipsy Glam Bag Plus November 2020 Unboxing & Review
Oh hey, guys, I realized that I totally forgot to show you what came in the November Ipsy Plus bag! Better late than never, right? I did an unboxing video and swatched everything on stories, and then I planned to post this review the same week, but never got around to it. Without further ado, here’s what you could get as an Ipsy Plus subscriber.
HOW IT WORKS:
Each month you will receive a new drawstring pouch filled with a mix of 5 full-sized beauty products customized according to your beauty profile. Ipsy Glam Bag Plus members can watch videos and play along with the stylists, all for only $25/month ($120+ value). Click here to check it out.
F.A.R.A.H. 5-Piece Eye Perfection Set
1 // F.A.R.A.H. 5-Piece Eye Perfection Set ($48) – I liked the variety of shapes, the metallic handles, and the dense cruelty-free hairs. These are decent, functional brushes that will be your little makeup workhorses, and they don’t seem like they’d be too fussy to care for – ahem, I’m looking at you, my finicky Japanese artisanal pieces. 5/5
Trestique Good Vibes Mascara Curler + Lash-Enhancing Mascara in Icelandic Black Laquer
2 // Trestique Good Vibes Mascara Curler + Lash-Enhancing Mascara in Icelandic Black Laquer ($25) – This mascara is genius! not only does it have an hourglass-shaped wand that curls and lifts the lashes, but the cap has a built-in mini eyelash curler for touchups on the go. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and I’m obsessed! I think I might even repurchase this one. 5/5
3 // Kate Somerville Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream ($65) – This moisturizer is another one of my favorite finds this fall. It’s rich and creamy, but not too heavy, and leaves the skin smooth and velvety – my combination skin can easily tolerate it. I also really like the way it smells – there’s something vintage about the fragrance that reminds me of my mom’s skincare from when I was a kid. 5/5
4 // Tarte Sugar Rush Lip Sip Vegan Lip Oil in Fresh Pressed ($15) – Now here’s a product I thought I would enjoy but in the end wasn’t too impressed with. This lip oil turned out too sticky for my taste, it really felt more like a lip gloss than an oil. 2/5
Violet Voss Coral Pop 6 Color Eyeshadow and Pressed Pigment Palette
Violet Voss Coral Pop 6 Color Eyeshadow and Pressed Pigment Palette (swatches)
5 // Violet Voss Coral Pop 6 Color Eyeshadow and Pressed Pigment Palette ($20) – When I saw this palette I had to do a double-take: the neutrals spoke to me immediately but am I bold enough to pull off the red and the coral shades? Turns out I am, and they complement the neutrals beautifully! As with other Violet Voss powder eyeshadows, the formula didn’t disappoint – they were pigmented, easy to wear, and a dream to blend. 5/5
I’m definitely feeling this month’s Ipsy Plus bag because I loved 4 out of 5 products! The brush set makes a wonderful addition to my collection, the moisturizer is perfect for the season, the mascara is the crazy thing I never knew I needed (def buying more btw!), and the palette made me try a bolder look which I totally rocked! Considering how much I love these four, I can forgive the gloopy mess that is Tarte Sugar Rush lip oil. Its only redeeming quality is the delicious tropical fragrance, anyway.
