Mine was clear..I think that would be the safest route to go instead of trying to match profiles..

The polish is interesting, but in the sneak peek they posted it looks more like a brown.

Glad it helped!  I think the color is pretty sheer and build-able if you want it to be.  I thought the polish was a little more brown as well, but upon closer inspection, it's a lot of gold and some pinkish undertones IMO..I can't wait to try it layer over another color!  A little chipping in 24 hours, but I have mommy hands to a 9 month old..they are always submerged in water so I'm not a great judge lol.

Thanks! I was actually looking at that bag.  I usually like a black bag but that black bag looks like a little different texture than the tan..

Just posted on Ipsy's Facebook:

 

Get ready for some more pink in your life! We started shipping Glam Bags late last week and will continue shipping this week. We will start sending tracking numbers later today, and will send more emails throughout this week as we continue to ship bags. The Glam Room will be updated with November's products later today, so make sure you check out ipsy.com. Can't wait to see all of your Looks and photos!

Just got my tracking. It's expected to be here by the 15th for me, but usually I get pretty lucky with mail.

 

Also, the glam room ate ipsy.com has updated. LOL it looks like the only customisation this month is whether black or brown liner look good on you or you need mascara or brow gel ;)

 

They put up this offer for theBalm though: http://thebalm.com/IPSY50/ That's actually a pretty good price. It's too bad I kind of dislike matte eyeshadows. I'm still willing to give this a go since it's in my bag

 

Also I reject Meet Matt(e) on the grounds it doesn't have my favourite Matt: Matt Bomer :P

post #637 of 1043

Just got my tracking email and it was supposed to be here on the 15th but looks like ill be getting it tomorrow since its already in town. So happy i'll get it along with my birchbox :)

post #638 of 1043

I really wish I needed eyeshadow because that is a GREAT code for the matte palette!

I agree there really should be a  Matt Bomer! Yummy!

Yay, tracking!  Mine has no update after the 9th, and it's supposed to arrive on the 15th, although I'm not too antsy about it because I feel like crap (I'm on day six of a nasty cold), so I can't dredge up much real enthusiasm about anything right now aside from convincing myself that I *will* be over this ick before my package arrives.

 

Now I'm curious about something else:  I see a note on the lipgloss page that this isn't going to the Canadians.  Even though I'm not Canadian, I wonder (a) why not (the Canadian version of the FDA hasn't approved this for sale/distribution in Canada, maybe?) and (b) what they're sending in its place.  (In related news, man, I miss the days when I could wake up at 6am on a random Saturday once a month or so and just spontaneously go to BC for the day -- and stock up on my beloved Pears shampoo that doesn't seem to be made any more! :(  At least there's a Lush in my town now.  Customs never believed me when I said I spent my $150 duty-free allowance on soap and shampoo -- until they searched my car and found my new collection of bath bombs and lotion bars.  I probably had the best-smelling car they encountered back then!)

indeed! there is one in the town where i grew up in the east bay, but its not my primary store anymore, so this one is literally 5 minutes away from my boyfriend's townhouse off of john daly blvd. it's so full of what i am assuming are internet resellers its pretty much picked through all the time. I think there is one over here in Berkeley, but I tend to stay away from certain areas, and if I remember correctly its not in the greatest part of town.

 

I love going home because our tj maxx and home goods are right next door to eachother and the pickings aren't as slim :) 

post #642 of 1043

I'll probably get it tomorrow since it's already in the area with a projected date of the 15th lol

post #643 of 1043

okie dokes is it clear or colored

post #644 of 1043

I received my tracking as well today, looks like it should be here tomorrow...fingers crossed for the mascara!!!!

post #645 of 1043

Yay! Got my tracking as well, and should be here tomorrow. So excited!

post #646 of 1043

Just checked my tracking email that I got today, and my box arrived in town this afternoon!  Not sure who's going to have a better mail day tomorrow, me with my ipsy or MrMeow with his silly video game.  smile.gif  I'm really hoping I get the mascara since the gel is clear.  My eyebrows are virtually non-existent, so clear gel would do nothing for me.  Oh well, I'm sure I could find someone to use it if I get it!

post #647 of 1043

just noticed mine was received at the local post office today too! yay getting it tomorrow! hope I get mascara, my eyebrows are pretty dark and stay in place so I don't think I need anything for em

post #648 of 1043

It appears that I will recieve my Ipsy bag tomorrow too!  I'm pretty excited for this one.  Its not often that I get an eyeshadow from one of my beauty subs, and I've never rec'd a powder shadow, which is my favorite type. 

 

I had been thinking of purchasing The Balm's Meet Matte Palette, and now I'm glad I waited.  The 50% off Ipsy discount is a great deal!

What is the 50% off you speak of?. For thebalm's website, on anything or just the eyeshadow palettes?
post #650 of 1043

Isn't it one of those grow serum thingies? I have been using one from my Discover with Marta sub and I think it is working. I actually get sorta confused by the extra eyebrow goin' on every morning. I am not sure if that is a good thing

I want to know too. I've been eyeballing this palette and would have to pick it up for 50% off.

post #652 of 1043

Here's the info given on ipsy's glam room product page.

 

 

Looks like it's just the Meet Matt(e) palette.

post #653 of 1043

Aww crap. Must not buy another matte shadow palette. Must not buy another matte shadow palette. 

post #654 of 1043

Oh fudge.... really 50% off?! No...!

post #655 of 1043

Oh man. I bought it! LOL

WoW! I didn't realize Marta has her own sub service. Sounds exciting!

But can anti-aging products show results within several days, even a few weeks? Sampling anti-aging seems meaningless... 

post #659 of 1043

Actually, I find that changing up skincare every few weeks does wonders

post #660 of 1043

I have a feeling I will be getting the mascara since I am getting the mascara in my birchbox and I have a zillion mascaras waiting to be used for some reason.  I blame it on all the extra goodies that are in the holiday palettes and sets I've purchased.  :)  I guess I'll just have a 6 month supply of mascara. 

 

Question: If you don't open a mascara, how long is it good before you have to use it?  I know you should discard after about 3 months of usage, but do they dry up after a few months if not opened yet?
