November Empties

I have a very tiny amount of empties this month. Once again, I have a few things that are getting close but just didn't manage to finish anything yet.

Essence Beauty Beats Eyeshadow swatches

It's been a while since I bought anything from Essence. It's been a while since my local Ulta had a limited edition Essence display at all. I probably didn't need these shadows but I felt weird not buying anything when I redeemed my reward points.

They are Justin Bieber themed, which may be why Ulta got the display when they got no others. I'm not a fan, but I do try not to let that get in the way of buying products when it wouldn't be obvious. I couldn't bring myself to get his perfume even though I liked it, but I did buy these and one of the Nicole by OPI polishes from the Justin Bieber collection.

They are all on the lighter, shimmery side. Out of all of them, I'm pretty impressed with the purple shadow. Drugstore purples are often really chalky and poorly pigmented regardless of finish. This had a nice texture and wasn't patchy. If you only get one, I'd suggest the purple.

An "I didn't really need these" drugstore haul

I went out today for some basics and ended up with a few other things.

November Ipsy Bag

I was surprised with my Ipsy bag this morning. I didn't get a tracking number for my bag this month but, I guess as long as I get the actual bag, it's fine.

Outside of the actual bag, which I had to force open because the zipper was messed up, I'm really happy with this bag. I wasn't so excited with a few things when my Glam Room went up, but the colors changed my mind. I was particularly uninterested in the Starlooks eye liner because I didn't like the last Starlooks eye liner I got, but this one was really pretty. I'm also really happy that there are no hair products this month.

Hypokrite Cosmetics Danger eye shadow swatch

I bought an eye shadow from the recently launched Hypokrite Cosmetics. I discovered the line before it was even released because I follow the creator, Karli, on instagram. It was kind of cool to see the updates as it was being made and getting ready to launch.

Anyway, the line consists of neutral colored eye shadows, lipsticks, lip gloss and brow powders. I chose to get an eye shadow. I picked Danger, described as a dark cranberry, because I really think I don't have a color like it. The eye shadows are $11.49 each.

It's a really nice eye shadow. It was a nice texture that wasn't stiff but wasn't so soft it crumbled. The color is really pigmented, as well. This shadow is matte and it looks like all of them are.

Shopping My Stash Makeup Basket in November

I picked out my products for November, so here they are.  As with last month, I'm including the products that I'm trying to use up, thus often repeated, at the bottom. The rest are ones that I'm trying for the month.

It feels good to work through products. A lot of these are ones that I bought but rarely, if ever, used. I can definitely say that I have never once used either of the eye shadow sets.
