For those of you who are not familiar with ipsy, it's an American monthly subscription beauty sample bag that was formerly known as myglam. For $10 American or now $14.95 Canadian a month, subscribers will receive 4-5 deluxe beauty samples or full-sized products within each ipsy bag.
Before I continue, I just want to take a moment to disclose that I have not received any monetary compensation for this post. I'm an ipsy subscriber and I pay for the monthly ipsy bags with my own money.
Starting this month, ipsy has extended their monthly subscriptions to Canadians as well! I've heard many great things about this monthly subscription and once I learned that they were inviting Canadians to join, I immediately signed up. This is my first ipsy bag and I have to say, I'm so glad that I became a subscriber!

My favorite aspect of signing up to monthly subscription beauty boxes is that I get to try out products from companies that I may have never heard of. This month, I was introduced to quite a few brands such as eclos. I'm always hesitant when it comes to trying out creams because of I have sensitive skin, and after having tried out the eclos Anti-Aging Regenerative cream, I found that it works well for my sensitive skin. Of course, it'll take more than one try to see any effects and I'll definitely post a review of this product once I've used it all up.
Scarlet Cosmetics is another company that I was introduced to this month. I received a full-sized Scarlet eye pencil in the shade Chocolate. I really like that the shade comes out in a light matte brown and that it can be built up to be darker if you want it to be. I'm definitely looking forward to expirementing with this product!
The last product that I received within my first ipsy bag was a matte eyeshadow by the Balm. The shade comes out dark grey with a slight hint of purple and is great for creating a smokey eye effect. Another great product!
My Overall Impressions for the ipsy November Edition:
Overall, I was very impressed with all the products included within my first ipsy bag. I loved all of the products, and I appreciated that ipsy added some bonus items to welcome Canadian subscribers. This is definitely a beauty subscription box that I will be keeping for a while!
