Subscriptions: Ipsy November 2013



Because I still have no idea where my mail key is, I was excited to see this on my porch today. I know my Birchbox is still being held hostage in there, but I already looked at my spoilers last week so I'm not as bummed out. I do have an important prescription coming in the mail though so I need to find that key, stat.


Lots of good loot this month!


Nailtini Nail Polish in Caviar Cocktail: Ipsy sent me a nude Nailtini polish awhile back and I thought the quality was excellent (especially considering the Station polish they sent me after that.) I love metallics so this is definitely going to be used soon.

HSI Professional Argon Oil: My hair has been really dry lately and the new conditioner I bought is not helping. I'm not going to waste the conditioner by throwing it out but I'm going to need product to make sure my hair isn't a rats nest. This will work perfectly.


Starlooks Gem Pencil in Amethyst: My beauty subs have sent me loads and loads of black eyeliners, but I haven't gotten any color eyeliners. I was anticipating this being a silver color based on the packaging, but the endcap and name (duh) is Amethyst and it's a gorgeous purple metallic color. I can't wait to wear this as eyeliner.

Be A Bombshell Lip Crayon in Shameless: I'm always a little worried by dark lip crayons so we'll see how this looks on my lips. On my hand is was a nice berry color, and I really like the consistency and idea of lip crayons. I usually give away most of the lip products I receive but I always keep the crayons!

Em By Michelle Phan Lipstick in Cupcake Pink: The controversial founder of Ipsy is Michelle Phan and she's just launched her own makeup collection. I was hoping we'd get some of her products in our bags and I was not disappointed. Once again I was a little worried to see another lip product (especially a lipstick) but this is the most gorgeous light pink color, and I know it's definitely something I'll wear.

Pixi Beauty Bronzer in Subtly Sunkissed:


Swatches of the Starlooks, Be A Bombshell, Em, and Pixi products. (Isn't that purple pencil gorgeous?!)

Ipsy is only $10 a month and is my favorite beauty subscription. You can sign up here using my referral link!


  1. I just signed up for Ipsy and I am so excited to get my first bag. I LOVE the lip crayon and nail color. How is the founder controversial? I guess I could look it up myself, but I'm being lazy and want to hear from you since you already have some experience with the company!


    1. I think this website has some of the details (http://michellephail.tumblr.com/) I read up on it last year before subscribing to Ipsy and a lot of people don't like her but I follow her instagram and she's an amazing makeup artist! Some of her transformations are incredible. And Ipsy is my favorite beauty sub by far. They give out the BEST products!
