Ipsy November 2016 “Rockstarlet” Review

As you may or may not already know each month Ipsy has a new theme and a new bag. This month the theme was “Rockstarlet” and the bag did not disappoint. The bag is a navy neoprene type bag with constellations as well as beauty products within them. I love how they took the “star” so literally in rockstarlet. The bag itself came in 2 varieties; gold or silver constellations. I was hoping to get the gold, but I ended up with the silver.

But enough about the bag itself let’s get onto the review of the 5 items I got this month. I was over the moon with my items this month as I got 2 of my favourite brands as well as a favourite type of product and another brand that I’m starting to fall in love with.

Price: $24.13 USD Size: Full Size Rating: ★★★★★

The first item I got was probably the one I’m the most excited about. Anyone who knows me knows about how much I rave about Luxie brushes, and I had received another in this months bag. The brush is their T524 or their small rose gold duo fibre brush. This brush is slightly shorter than all other Luxie brushes I have in my collection but I’m loving the duo fibres and how soft it is.

The next item I received was a deluxe sample of Too Faced Better than Sex mascara. Now there’s a reason for the name and why everyone has heard of this mascara. It quite possibly might just be better than sex. It leaves your lashes so full and long while not clumpy what’s so ever. This is one of my favourite mascaras so I was so excited to get it this month.

Better than Sex
Price: $12.00 USD Size: Deluxe Sample Rating: ★★★★★

The third thing I got this month was a deluxe sample of Formula X nailpolish in the colour “Huntress”. On the picture online and even the bottle the nailpolish looks like a green but after putting it on my nails it is a navy colour. The formula is outstanding tho and looks amazing with just one coat.

Formula X
Price: $3.60(Full is $10) USD Size: 4ML (Full size is 11ML) Rating: ★★★☆☆


Now there’s no coupon this month for Formula X but you can purchase any of their nail colours from Sephora

The fourth thing I got this month was a travel size of the Pur-lisse Blue Lotus Balancing moisturizer. I have yet to try this lotion, but I’ve been using their Pur-Delicate Gentle Soy Milk Cleanser and Makeup Remover and love how gentle it is on my skin while removing everything. So needless to say I’m excited to try this out.

Price: $20.00 USD Size: Travel Rating: ?

The final item I got this month was an Elizabeth Mott Colour is Bae Lip Lacquer in the colour “Moxie Mauve”. I wasn’t sure if the product was a liquid lipstick but after a quick Swatch I found out it is indeed a liquid lipstick with a satin finish. The colour is amazing as well, it is a very flattering nude-pink which would be very universal. I was super excited after the Swatch because I’m a liquid lipstick lover !!

Price: $16.00 (Full size is $20) USD Size: 4g (Full is 5g) Rating: ★★★★★
