November Ipsy Review | Blogmas Day 2!

by - 12/02/2014

Day 2! So far so good. It's getting colder outside, which means more snow is on the way. I like it when it snows around Christmas, especially here in Boston. It makes everything look so pretty and clean (which is impressive in this city ha.) Though I have to admit, after the 26th I get kind of sick of looking at it. It gets all dirty and slushy and just a nuisance. But I suppose that's kind of getting off subject.. I have a review for you don't I!
Marc Anthony Oil of Morocco Hairspray | $8.29

Oh my god, this hairspray, oh. my. god. For the past year I've been using ONE type of hairspray, and I love it, since I got a super huge sized can of it. I'm a religious Herbal Essence user and will always be, but this hairspray came at just the right time in my life. The Herbal Essence makes my hair a bit stiff and at the end of the day when you brush it all out, you get those little white flakes here and there, like with most sprays. THIS however, oh my god. (How many times can I say that?) It smells wonderful, it held my hair all day, and because it has Argan Oil, it left my hair feeling silky, smooth, and grease free throughout the day. I cannot say enough how wonderful this is. I've been carrying this bottle around in my purse since getting it and I definitely plan on getting the bigger bottle.
Be a Bombshell Cosmetics Eye Base in Submissive | $14

So this sparkling beauty here is a cream eye base that you can use by itself or to help blend in other colors and whatnot. This has come into my life WAY TOO LATE. I've always used pressed powders for my eye shadows but this has just been so easy to use and it looks gorgeous. Submissive is a bronze/gold color and I've just been using my fingers to get this stuff on. It's smooth and looks beautiful alone. I would highly recommend this to anyone who's looking for a good Christmas-y golden look because this is all of that in a tiny container.
J.Cat Beauty Lip Stain in Queen of Hearts | $4.99

This product was a little iffy for me. I'm going to be the first to admit that I'm still new to everything having to do with the lips. (Aside from chap stick because Ima a pro there.) So getting a lip stain, I knew I wasn't going to have a very good bonding time with this. Since I've never tried other stains, I don't know what they're like, but when I went to try this one it came out very liquid-y.  I don't know if it would need to be shaken up a little or what, but that was the first thing I didn't like. The second was that it didn't have very long staying power. The color, however, was amazing. It was so pigmented that it could have beat up any of the lipstick I currently own. I don't think I would ever go out and buy this myself, but I think it'd be great for Halloween.
Starlooks Gem Eye Pencil in Ultra Violet | $17

So the picture doesn't help much, but this is a glittery eye pencil in a light purple. Now, I don't tend to use eye pencils much, but gave this a try and I can't complain about it. It has a nice, smooth application and blends well. Though it may blend too well because by the end of the day, there was hardly anything left. I wouldn't go out and buy this myself, but it wasn't a terrible product.
Temptu Highlighter

For some reason I couldn't get onto the website to grab the link for this item, so sorry guys! I don't know how many of you have had a liquid highlighter before, but how do you like it? I haven't worked with many highlighters but I found this one way too runny. It actually ran down my face a little as I was trying to blend it! It has a pretty pink/white color and does shimmer nicely, but it doesn't seem to last well on the face and it will rub off any foundation you may have on. Sigh.

Which products have been working really well for you?
