We are a bit behind with posting, since Crystal and I both got our bags last week but let’s get sharing!

Ipsy Glam Bag November 2016

The theme for this month was RockStarlet.  Well here we go.

Crystal and I both love the bag!  It is very sturdy.Ipsy Glam Bag November 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

We had a few duplicates this month.

tarte cosmetics maracuja oil

Ipsy Glam Bag November 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

Oils can seem scary (um hello! who wants to look greasy?!) but this multitasker left our skin quenched, nourished, and dewy—not shiny. You’ll want to have a bottle on you at all times.

  • Packed with complexion heroes like skin-brightening Vitamin C and repairing fatty acids
  • Use it for a zillion other things like frizz-fighting, on-the-go manis, makeup removal

This Brand’s the Bomb

Beauty with a serious kick. Eco-chic naturals that are as effective as they are luxe. They coined the word “skinvigorating” to describe their awesome ingredients—which include breakthroughs like Amazonian clay and maracuja oil. Cruelty-free formulas that go the distance (budge-proof, waterproof, sweatproof) in runway-inspired packaging you’ll want to pull out of your purse at every opportunity. We’ll never sour on them.

Indie Lee  CoQ-10 Toner

Ipsy Glam Bag November 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

Time for a chem lesson. Meet CoQ-10, a 100% natural mega antioxidant that helps balance the skin’s PH level with the right amount of acids and oils—so we look 100% healthy and 0% haggard.

  • The sun’s UV rays release free radicals in the skin, which cause signs of aging. But CoQ-10 says, “Halt, free radicals! You’re not welcome here!” Thus protecting us from lines, dark spots and other beauty villains.

  • More on that PH thing. The skin’s PH level determines whether its dry and fragile (and welcoming to wrinkles) or red, irritated and acne prone. We want our skin to be in the middle—plump and glowing with a perfectly balanced PH level. This toner helps keep the balance between acids and the oil in our skin just right—in that Goldilocks kind of way.

  • Not to be outdone. Aloe vera and hyaluronic acid step up to help hydrate our complexions, remove oil, refresh skin and close pores. And alcohol? You’re out. No drying ingredients allowed.

This Brand’s the Bomb

Girl gets brain tumor. Girl fights brain tumor. Girl beats brain tumor. Girl gets a new lease on life—and discovers that environmental toxins may have caused brain tumor. So girl creates an eco-friendly, safe and all-natural skincare collection. Girl designs the ultimate green product line that protects the earth and our bodies. Girl is Indie Lee. Indie Lee rocks.

Thoughts and Value

Crystal got this in her bag and she loves it.  It is very refreshing.

SLMissGlam W20 Angled Eye Brush

Ipsy Glam Bag November 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

Pink and white and works all over. Super soft bristles are perfect for applying and blending. Plus, the sparkly jewels on the handle make us swoon.

  • Synthetic hairs grab the perfect amount of pigment every time

  • Whip it out. This is one brush you’ll love pulling out of your purse.

  • Cruelty-free. Because nothing this cute could hurt our cuddly friends.

This Brand’s the Bomb

Pretty, pink, and glam. Those are the three favorite things of makeup artist and beauty blogger SLMissGlam, one of our favorite Instagram and YouTube stars. Her name is a combo of her initials (SL) and the nickname her bestie gave her (Miss Glam). She started this line of jeweled brushes because she loved everything in her makeup bag—except for the brushes, which were always black and boring. As soon as we discovered them, we were hooked. Because #ipsyPink.

Thoughts and Value

Kerry loves getting brushes and is excited to have this one.

This exact brush seems to only be available in a kit (A $300+ kit), I think a similar brush is $13.50

theBalm Cosmetics  Mad Lash® Mascara

Ipsy Glam Bag November 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

So flexible, we think it’s been doing yoga. One of the most bendy wands we’ve ever laid eyes on, it moves easily to hug each and every lash.

  • Curved brush gives uber volume and lift.

  • The tip of the wand is ideally designed to get at even the tiniest of lashes.

  • Into the deep. Rich black shade brings out our dramatic side.

This Brand’s the Bomb

Beauty in 5 minutes. That’s a philosophy we dig. Founder Marissa Shipman believed women should feel their best with just a few simple products. But “the ones” she wanted hadn’t been created yet. So she took matters into her own hands—turning her kitchen into something resembling the trailer in Breaking Bad (but without the whole explosive part). Ten years later, her paraben-free, cruelty-free creations have taken the world by whimsical storm.

Thoughts and Value

We both got this in our bags, Crystal is excited to have another mascara to try, and we both already love theBalm.  The packaging is quite different from any other mascara, instead of turning the wand you just pull out.  See the arrow below.

I tried this mascara this morning, and it is rather clumpy.  I will let it “dry” out a bit to see if that helps.  I am not a fan of wet mascaras for that very reason, they get very clumpy.

ModelCo CONTOUR STICK

Ipsy Glam Bag November 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

Fake it ‘til you make it. Incredibly creamy formula blends seamlessly into skin, so we can get the perfectly sculpted features we were meant to be born with.

  • Pass on the cake. Oil-free and lightweight enough to wear over foundation.

  • Easy does it. Simple-to-use stick, so even contouring novices can apply with complete precision.

  • Goes all day—and all night, with a long-lasting and even finish.

It sheers out pretty well.

Ipsy Glam Bag November 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Brand’s the Bomb

Look up “beauty pioneer” in the dictionary, and you’ll see a picture of ModelCo. They take on everyday struggles and create incredibly innovative solutions. Gloss with a light on the end (so you can apply in the dark, without covering more than your lips in color). A heated eyelash curler that keeps you looking bright-eyed for longer than you ever thought possible. Always fun and fearless, we know who to call when we need a beauty hero.

Thoughts and Value

We both got this in our bags, I think Crystal will find a home for it, Kerry will give it a gander.  She has another contour stick that she is using – I mean really how many contour sticks does a girl need?

Osmotics Cosmeceuticals Blue Copper 5 Firming Elasticity Repair

This Product’s Amaze Factor

A pretty penny. There’s a reason copper was the ancient Egyptian symbol for eternal youth. Formulated with active copper, this cream plumps and firms—like a short-term collagen injection for our skin.

  • Fountain of youth alert. Helps build back the collagen and elastin we lose as we age (aka the stuff that makes our skin stronger).

  • Cool, calm, and collected, this majorly reduces redness.

  • The fun blue tint is giving us nostalgic Smurf vibes. But don’t fret. The cream rubs in clear.

Thoughts and Value

Full size is $85 for 1 oz Sample $42.50!!!

EYEKO Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner deluxe in Black

Ipsy Glam Bag November 2016 ~ www.fabulousindeed.com

This Product’s Amaze Factor

Walk every line. The super skinny tip of this easy-to-apply liquid pen makes it easy to create fine lines or thick-winged fantasies, and everything in between.

  • Electric glide. Goes on evenly over eyeshadow.

  • In it for the long haul. Sodium hyaluronate makes the pitch-black color last.

  • Won’t budge. Smudge-proof, even on the waterline.

This Brand’s the Bomb

Their eyes have it. Founded by veteran makeup artists and a favorite of celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence and Salma Hayek. Known for some of the best eye products in the beauty business—like their zero-waste squeeze tube mascaras plus innovative formulas and brushes for instant results and long-term lash care. With style icon Alexa Chung as their spokesperson, we know they’re always on-trend. We’ll be keeping our eyes on this brand.

Thoughts and Value

Crystal got this, and loves eye liner so this is a great thing for her to try.

Full size is $18. Sample is $10.28

Final Thoughts and Value

Crystal’s bag value is $33.86

Kerry’s bag value is $76.82, apparently I should be very excited about that $40 dollars worth of cream.  Really I am excited about everything in the bag.
