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?

The clock doesn't start ticking until you break the seal, according to one of the makeup artists I know

Don't watch if you don't want potential spoilers for future months. I counted like five new things.

Just picked up my Ipsy bag from the post.   I really like every item this month. 

 

The bag itself is good quality, and I like the brown shade.  I rec'd the eyebrow gel, and the Starlet eye pencil in brown. I love the berry shade of the gloss and the eyeshadow shade as well!  I'm undecided about the nail polish.  It may go to my neice or I may keep it. 

post #667 of 1043

I just tried the gloss on, and I love the berry shade.  It's sheer, but provides some color too.  All the other glosses I have recieved in my beauty boxes have been lighter pink or champagne shades, so this is a nice change. 

 

It may be my lighting, but the eyeshadow looks almost like a deep plum or eggplant to me.  I really like it!

I should be getting my bag in the mail today!

Is the gloss sparkly or sticky?

I don't think the gloss is sticky or sparkly. its sheer and I really love the color and smell of it. I got the color Dare devil. I love it!

Hah!  I saw a MuT forum post from Fairest about the chevron bags on their pin-up board!

I haven't gotten my tracking yet =( ? Location: San Francisco

 

Have everyone received a tracking number?

post #673 of 1043

Hey everyone! Long time lurker, first time poster. LOL! So I got the eyebrow gel and I have no use for it! Can someone clue me in on how to do a trade, this is the first time I didn't like something in my bag!!

post #674 of 1043

darn... I received the eyebrow gel instead of the mascara.  icon_sad.gif...oh well... I love everything else! 

post #675 of 1043

I got my tracking # yesterday, but the bag arrived today.

 

My contents including the names of the colors & descriptions:

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Nailtini in Millionaire, an unusual mix of a rosegold glitter with gold & blue-green bar glitter in a clear base.

The Balm's Meet Matte eyeshadow in Matt Batali, a matte deep purple-charcoal.

Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie lip gloss in Dare Devil, a semi-sheer pearly finish plummy bordeaux in tube, more of a berry when swatched.

Starlet Cosmetics eye pencil in Chocolate, a warm reddish brown.

Chella eyebrow defining gel in clear.

 

I think outside of brown or black for one of the items, it's my guess that these are all the same colors?  Any other variations for colors that you know of?

It  IS sticky in my opinion... I did the hair test, and it did get stuck! However, it isn't at all goopy which is a plus. Also, it looks a little sparkly when it's in the tube, but once it goes on it's just kind of a sheen.. On my lips it gave a nice sheen but not necessarily *shimmer* or sparkle. Hard to explain lol. I DO like the gloss itself, I'm not bananas for the shade, but I'll have to wear it only if my crazy long hair is up.

On the ipsy show room, the brow gel image is lighter than the mascara. Does that mean I'll be getting the mascara instead of the gel?

post #678 of 1043

I hope my bag comes today. I also ordered another one but that one probably won't ship for a few days.

No it just means the gel we're getting is clear while the case for the mascara is dark. There's no difference in actual opacity, just the physical picture.

 

I think we already established last month there's no way to tell what you're getting by just looking at the glam room.

 

For people who got the brow gel -- can you let us know what size it is? I know the mascara is a mini already, but I'm curious what the sizing for the brow gel is.

3.5 mL... I'm not sure on this but it seems to be the size of the balm mascara we got from ipsy last month.. Maybe even a little smaller ? 

post #682 of 1043

The brow gel is 3.5ml.

post #683 of 1043

I wish that the Glam Room would tell us which or item we were getting. I really hope I get the mascara since that's why I re-signed up for Ipsy!

For those of you who have slight hoarding tendencies like me and don't have the will power / heart to give away ANY sub items even if you dislike the color, etc... I just found this old NYX tube from an old MyGlam (not sure which month). It was never used and I tried the Moxie Daredevil over it and it looks great since they are similar colors. Try it out if you still have it, especially for those of you concerned that the gloss might be too sheer. Color of the NYX is 606 Saturn 700

The lipsticks went out in the June 2012 bag.

This video was so cool, thanks for sharing! And I totally laughed when I saw her wandering thru the airport with those things on her eyes.  I liked seeing the headquarters, though!  It was really nice to be able to put faces with the ppl behind facebook and emails.

 

In other news, I cannot stop wearing this mascara... it's awesome!

I spy Josie maran argan oil, nyx pigments, pacifica body lotion/rollerball, more urban decay samples, nyx blushes?, big sexy hair dry shampoo and some more stuff. How about you?
