Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

November Ipsy Review

November Ipsy!!

This month’s theme was Girl Meets Glitter.

Naturally, as you probably guessed, I almost died.

Sure I’m 31, but I love glitter, sparkle, and shine.

It’s a problem y’all.

It’s as if this theme was made specifically for me.

The good news for you is that there was a bust on one of the sparkliest items of all.

The bad news for me is that there was a bust on one of the sparkliest items of all.


So let’s get moving on the Sparkleville Bag o Glam


Crazy sparkly, yes?

You’ll be surprised to learn this is going in the Rake up the Makeup pile. Probably all of them from here on out will. I’ve gotten quite a collection.

I got this Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Argan hairspray.


I appreciate hair samples, and they always get used.

It smells lovely and holds well. I like to think its nourishing because of the argan oil?

I also got this teeny Temptu highlighter.


I’m a big fan of of subtle highlighters.


Yes, I know you’re shocked I said subtle.

Anything but subtle gets me in trouble. If not I end up looking like a wannabe fairy princess.

We embrace the subtle.

I really like this highlighter. It’s a soft pink and is not overly sparkly. It just provides a hint of dew.

I only wish it were bigger. What a teeny sample.

I also got this full size Be a Bombshell eye primer in Submissive.


This color is so very beautiful! The shimmer is incredibly subtle (the word of today is: subtle), but still enough to offer a pretty pop.


It slides on like a creamy gel. I felt like I had to really layer it on to add real color, and when I did, it was beautiful.

The Be a Bombshell website says to wear alone for light coverage, but for deeper color layer with eyeshadow.

I wore it all day, and sadly it creased, so that was s bit of a bummer. It’s beautiful and not going to deter me from wearing. I will probably just try to remember to set with translucent powder next time.

Oh girls.

This stuff.


It’s called J Cats Lip Paint.

It comes in scary colors (think sky blue) and was shipped in its own separate Baggie.

It’s got train wreck written all over it.


The color here is misleading. Picture trying to smear that on your lips without completely looking like a clown.

It’s pretty much an impossible task.

So then I thought, “I know! I bet I could use it as a cheek stain!”



I used the tiniest drop, and yeah, Bozo the Clown-ville.

Soooo not sure about this product. I feel it should come with a warning label- Will Stain Everything!!

I’m not sure it can even make it to the rake up the makeup pile.

Last but not least, I also got this You’re So Fine liquid sparkly eyeliner.


I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again- I’m a complete mess when it comes to liquid eyeliners.

Plus, couple that with sparkliness and this has tart written all over it.

No can do.

In fact, I was playing around with my Ipsy finds last week, long after we had been home. I looked like a complete hot mess.

Between my wine colored stained teeth, clown stained cheeks, and sparkly crooked cat eyes…

Will looked at me all funny and was like, “Are you going somewhere?”


I think he really wanted to ask if I was trying out for a play or made the impromptu decision we should go clubbing on a quiet Tuesday night.

So yeah. The November Ipsy. It was a mixed bag. Some good, some not so good.

For a theme all about glitter I was hoping I’d love it all, but hey, I’ve had a terrific streak so I can’t complain too much. smile

That’s it for today my dears! Check in tomorrow for our last chapter of Ezra!
