Ipsy? Birchbox? Why Not Both? November 2016

November's haul from Ipsy and Birchbox (updated as I actually try the products), and my honest thoughts on each product.

I was a little unsure about face oil, since my face can get a bit oily, but Ipsy came through with this great product! It's perfect overnight, and my face feels refreshed and smooth the morning after. Tarte continues to not disappoint!

I pair this moisturizer with the tarte face oil for an overnight treatment, and I love it! It's really light on my skin (to the point where I know it could be a day moisturizer), but definitely does the job. Thanks Ipsy!

So I got the red chili lip lacquer in my Ipsy bag this month, and HOLY RED, BATMAN!! I'm all for a good red, but this was way too over-the-top. I applied it, wiped it off, and then applied a chapstick, and then it was finally a shade I could handle.

This perfume was in my Birchbox this month, and I like it! It has a woodsy scent, with the right amount of florals to balance things out. I'm not sure if I would buy the full size, but I like the sample!

This product smells amazing!! I've been pairing it with my go-to heat protectant before blow-drying my hair, and I can definitely see the smoothing impact. Thanks Birchbox!

Balance Me Tinted Wonder Eye Cream, 10ml

I don't usually use eye creams, but I like this product (thanks Birchbox)! It blends well, and a little goes a LONG way. Definitely considering buying it when I've used up the sample!

Real talk, I picked the custom Birchbox (no samples were a surprise) this month just because of this mascara! My continued favorite!!

Thebalm the Balm Mad Lash Black Mascara

I like this mascara! Probably not enough to buy the full size, but it's definitely a good one. Nice pick for me, Ipsy!

ARDENCY INN MODSTER Smooth Ride Supercharged Eyeliner

Okay... here's the thing, the travel size of this product SUCKS. It was in my Birchbox this month, and Ipsy sent it a few months back, and the liner always breaks when the cap comes off. And then you can't twist the pencil to get more! Disappointing.
