Ipsy Glam Back | Girl Meets Glitter

Hello everyone! It has been absolutely ages since I have posted anything here or on my YouTube channel as I have been so extremely busy back at school in my last quarter studying Fashion before I graduate. It has been nearly impossible to make any time for blogging.  But I'm back! And now I get to share with you the November Ipsy 'Girl Meets Glam' glam bag.  I have been oohing and ahhing over it since it came in the post last week and I can safely say it is one of my favorite bags yet!
My first favorite I received is the delicious Be Delectable from Cake Beauty hand cream in the scent lemon and cream.  Oh. My. Gosh. It smells amazing. I just want to eat it!  My hands tend to be extremely dry in the Winter so I was so happy when I saw this product as I am always looking for something new to try for moisturizing my hands. This cream is crazy moisturizing without feeling greasy or sticky. Infused with shea butter, coconut oil, and aloe vera, it feels ultra-nourishing and was immediately thrown in my bag!  
You can buy the full size here: Be Delectable from Cake Beauty for $12
When I first pulled out the J. Cat Wonder Lip Paint I thought I was grabbing an OCC Lip Tar. I've been coveting their matte lipsticks at Sephora for a while now but just haven't had a chance to pick one up.  Although this is not from OCC, I still got really excited to try it.  Yes! It is a bit messy especially if you decide to apply it with your fingers like me, but it has beautiful pigmentation and stays on my lips all day!  The color is perfect for Fall and Winter and overall I absolutely love it.
It may not be OCC, but it is much friendlier on your purse and I think it may be just as lovely.  Mine is in the color 'Queen of Harts' Find it here: J. Cat Wonder Lip Paint for only $4.99
Now I don't usually experiment with colorful eyeliners as I much prefer a classic black or natural brown but I surprised myself with how much I loved the Ultra Olive Starlooks eyeliner.  This pencil eyeliner is super smooth with a sultry cool olive color with just a little sparkle that can glam up your eyes for any holiday party.  It is definitely a special occasion eye pencil but I do think I will use it when I want to play up my eyes! 
You can buy it here: Starlooks Ultra Olive Eye Pencil for $17
I'm not quite sure how I feel about the Temptu liquid highlighter. I've never used a liquid highlighter before which quite possibly could be the reason that I struggled with it, but I just found myself still reaching for my Chanel Camellia Highlighting Powder over this.  I just found it annoying as I tried to apply it and found it dripping down my cheek bones. It does create a beautiful highlight so maybe I just don't know how to apply it?
Try it for yourself here: Temptu Liquid Highlighter $28
Last but not least is the Clarisea Sea Salt Solution Powder Exfoliant.  Oh how I love this!  This is the loveliest exfoliator to create glowing skin through the Fall and Winter. I have super sensitive skin so I was apprehensive about trying this but it is really gentle on the skin and instantly left my skin feeling brighter. Try it here: Clarisea Sea Salt Solution Powder Exfoliant for $18.

All in all, I absolutely loved this glam bag. Ipsy has become my favorite beauty subscription service as I almost always love the products I'm sent and because I always get excited when I see the shiny pink bag in the mail! Again, I'm sorry I've been so MIA but I do have lots of exciting posts coming for the holidays so stay tuned!
