Ipsy November 2014 Glam Bag: Girl Meets Glitter

Well well well....this is a bit embarrassing, but I feel like I'm switching back and forth with my Ipsy series. Sometimes I feel like reviewing, sometimes I feel like just doing first impressions, it's quite a conflicting battle. I definitely should be keeping this consistent, so I'll just do mini reviews, and will do a follow up if I feel it is necessary! This is going to be my post on November's Ipsy Bag!
