post #751 of 1043

my glam bag! i'm glad i got the brow gel because i'm getting a full size mascara in my birchbox and i won full size hour glass cosmetics film noir mascara from allure's september giveaway that they just now emailed me about.

 

also kind of disappointed that the eyeliner i got is black, i was kind of hoping for brown since i don't have any brown eyeliners.

 

i'm not sure if i know how to use the brow gel though? i touched the brush but it didn't seem like there was a lot of product on it? i might have to do some research on it.

Figured as much. Another Urban Decay product launch foiled by social media. 

 

I finally figured out what polish that millionaire one reminds me of, its the OPI x Nicki Minaj color Save Me

( I love this entire collection and Nicki so much :) )

I'm totally annoyed by the tagline "the total absence of light." Actually, no, objects appear black because of the absorption of light. That's why my hair is so freakin' hot in the summer because it just absorbs all the freaking heat ever. )< A total absence of light is a void. Or a black hole. /offended by inaccurate science

bahahah i noticed that too (and i also have black hair) i'm just going to pretend it means absence of light color

Guuurrl I have so much mascara I'm not going to need to buy any for another year. And that's even if you do it by the 3-month rule ... I generally cheat and make it 5 or more months since I don't use mascara frequently so it's not as exposed to air? ._.)

 

Michelle kind of explained it when she did her $20 make up challenge. I only noticed because I watched this today.

She just used the brush thing but I'm... guessing that's what you do with it?

My bag weight is .3542. Since no one with a gel has gotten above .34whatever, I'm hoping I get the mascara. I didn't really want it at first, but I have zero use for the brow gel. At least a mascara I can eventually use.

I noticed I didn't post pics of my bag ^^  cuz I just opened it and posted right away here are some pics and a pic of me wearing the liner, They're Real, Bare Minerals Lip gloss and Nailtini nail polish :) didn't use the eye shadow yet cuz I just go the UD Mariposa palette and haven't tried all the colors out yet ^^ sorry about the light

I wish the eyeliner was more pigmented, I had to apply it several times for it to show, that's as much as I got

post #758 of 1043

I got my bag today, YAY! I got the Nailtini in Millionaire, the Matte Batali eyeshadow and the Moxie lipgloss in Dare Devil which I think is what everyone got with those. I got the chocolate brown eyeliner and the Benefit mascara. Definitely a dream bag for me, YAY!!!!!!!! I couldn't be happier and once again, Ipsy has put  me on cloud 9 cloud9.gif

I got my Ipsy bag when I got home from work tonight. 

I like the gloss and eyeshadow a ton.  I was actually looking forward to the eyebrow gel as it is something I have not tried before.  It was the first thing I opened and went to go use.  However, the thing was bone dry - I even went in and out of it and swished it around the tube and I got nothing out.  I sent an e-mail just letting them know.  I don't expect anything back - but maybe they can forward the info to the company - perhaps it is a factory glitch?

 

marchmellow.gifand now for something completely different....

 

 

 

 

I am not sure about the nail polish - part of me wants to try it and another part wants to gift it over.  In my current lighting condition it looks more gold then rose-gold.  What do you ladies think?

post #760 of 1043

My thick eyebrows would look painted on my face if I used brow gel! Would anyone like to trade? I would take pretty much anything else unused (even from last month's box or another service), as I already have a sample of the Benefit mascara from my last in-store Benefit purchase. PM me an offer!

Thanks!


The only product I have found effective for completely removing They're Real is an oil cleanser. I have used Philosophy's oil cleanser and it has removed the mascara 100% with no rubbing; however, I have gotten the oil in my eyes a few times, and it was not the most pleasant experience (lots of blurring and watering, not stinging or anything).

 

The two-part makeup removers like Lancome and like Clinique's Take the Day Off are mostly effective, but I am always left with residue, even after thoroughly (but gently) wiping and washing with face wash and warm water.

After last month's stellar bag, I had high hopes for this month. It was just kind of meh. I got the black eyeliner & brow gel. The eyeliner wasn't very pigmented and the brow gel was empty. The bag also smelled really strongly of nail polish. I was afraid when I opened the bag my nailpolish would have been busted all over. Fortunately it was all intact. I did like the lipgloss a lot and have high hopes for the shadow though.

I love the Lancôme Bi-facial eye makeup remover! It's pricey but removes everything. Totally worth it!

You're so pretty! I love the lipcolor on you; it complements the color of your eyes very nicely!

awe thank you very much ^^ icon_cheesygrin.gif and yes I'm loving this lip gloss I think it might be my favorite now and I might need to buy a full size when it runs out which I think will be soon!

It's got rose gold glitter and gold bar glitter with a blue-green holo bar glitter, so it's sort of both.  I put it on as an accent over a metallic I already had.  It's alright. I'm not a huge fan of bar glitters, and it's crazy gritty.  At least over what I had on, it's covering completely.  Although I can say with all of my 300+ polishes, I don't have a thing like it, so that's good!

post #771 of 1043

I think we all got the Daredevil shade.  I'll happily take yours off your hands if you don't want it, though!  I'd trade the chocolate eyeliner or the nail polish, or I've got items from other recent subs.
 

post #772 of 1043

If anyone received the mascara in their bag and wants to trade, message me! I will trade you anything except for the nail polish. :)
 

post #773 of 1043

I will also trade any tinted lip products from previous glam bags. I'm not a fan of lip gloss and lipsticks.

Are the boxes with brow gel vs. mascara around the same weight, or is it easy to tell which is which?

 

One of my boxes is 0.3422, the other is 0.3338. Is it still a toss-up, or is it likely that I'll get one of each? One's for my sister who's a mascara junkie, but I'd be interested in trying the brow gel (so long as it's clear and not tinted). I know for sure I selected Benefit as one of the brands I like, for both accounts. So I'm guessing brow gel vs. mascara is random pick, like last month's colors.

Thanks! I think I might gift it over to someone - I am not a pink and gold nailpolish chick. I do, however, think the green-blue and gold look pretty together.

I have sensitive eyes. I like to use One Love Organics Skin Savior Waterless Balm. It's expensive, though, so try olive oil.

Yes, once I get the color and shape how I like it, I use a brow gel to keep the hair in place. It gives a more polished look.
