Got my bag early today!  Got the brow gel :( and black liner.  The brow gel went to the trade list and I am undecided about the liner.  All in all good bag.

This. It's so sticky, and the fact it smells like something but has a generic, plastically lipgloss after taste is kind of awful.

The lip gloss really lasts! I put it on and drank a diet coke, a hot chocolate and ate a bagel and still had some on! I'm a huge fan.

I contacted Starlet Cosmetics about the liners and the reply was that the liners sent out are the same ones on their site only a limited edition packaging for Ipsy.

Thank you for contacting us! We are not the same Starlet at Aussie Kmart stores. The Starlet pencils in the November bags are limited edition for Ipsy. These are the same as the eye/lip liners on our site. The two colors sent out are Jet Black and Chocolate Brown. Attached are the images.

 

Please let us know if we may assist you with anything else!

 

Sincerely,

 

Starlet Cosmetics Team

P.S. Everything else is wonderful, especially the polish!

Everyone has that complaint that the brow gel container seems empty/dried up...However I took the stopper of it (the little black part at the neck of the bottle) and there is a good amount of product inside...It's just that the stopper hole is sooooo tiny that it literally removes like 90% of the product of the brush.  At the same time though using the brow gel without the stopper dispenses way more product than you need for your eyebrows.  I guess you can continue wiping of the excess on the container thats about the only advice I have.  Also if you use up some of it with the stopper then when you take the stopper out then there wont be so much excess product.  Hope this helps someone lol.  It really helps to remove the stopper when you think youre done with a product.

My mom lives on UD primer potion and goes through it fast...when she's ready to buy a new one I take out the stopper for her and she can get a good amount of uses out of it still.

I got my bag today, but the eyeliner was missing - has anyone ever had this happen before? I sent an email and left a message on their Facebook wall so we'll if they send me a replacement.

 

I got the brow gel rather than the Benefit mascara I was so hoping for, but since I also got my Birchbox today and it contained mascara I suppose it all worked out ;)

Just yanked my stopper out in hopes this was the problem but it is definitely almost dried up. It is very tacky like dried honey.

 

I have opened up a lot of containers in the past to get the remainder of products out. Wish it had worked this time.

My bag came a day early and I got the benefit mascara.. very pleased with my first bag! Will have to swatch the Nailtini later..
post #849 of 1043

This is my first Ipsy bag and I'm really really pleased.  I love the mascara, liner, gloss & makeup bag.  The nail polish isn't really my style, but I'll give it a try.

 

Unfortunately my Meet Matte shadow was really broken.  I'm glad the packaging is magnetized or else it would have smeared on everything, but about half of it fell out when I opened it for the first time.  Was anyone else's crumbled? Is this worth contacting Ipsy over?

post #850 of 1043

If half fell out and you really wanted to try it, it probably doesn't hurt to contact them. mine was broken too, but luckily it stayed in the package.

Go ahead and contact them , they usually get back to you within 24 hours and the replacement should be sent a few days later :D My coastal scents eyeshadow sample was crushed and they sent me a replacement the day after I email them. Just remember to confirm your mailing address as well when you email them to save you time, that's their new replacement policy.

Got my 2 bags and was crossing my fingers to get one of each of the brow gel and mascara but got two brow gels. I did get one black and one brown eyeliner so I guess thats better than 2 brown eyeliners or 2 black eyeliners. I'm happy with my bags.

post #853 of 1043

Ok I'm confused. I swear I signed up for a second account, and I logged in and wasn't subscribed....hmmm? Oh well. Didn't get my bag though, kinda bummed because I got a second sub just to add things to others Christmas presents.

Thanks for the responses.  If it had stayed in the package I would have just tried to re-press it, but I wasn't that careful when I opened it...and I opened it in my car before class & got it all over my lap!  Luckily I was wearing black pants & it was in chunks, not dust so I was able to brush it all off of my car & my pants without a major wardrobe crisis.  I'll send them an e-mail tomorrow.

Oh!  I didn't expect this to be here for another week since it went UPS MI, and my Birchboxes always take at least a week and a half to get here (I'm in Portland, so I'm all the way across the country from the warehouse), but this took under a week!  And, okay, this is weird, but in a good way:  Even though I knew almost exactly what was going to be in my bag and even though I feel like complete crap (day eight of a cold that started during my vacation, and I have a feeling I might be forced into taking a three-and-a-half-day weekend because of it if my bosses have anything to say about it), I'm even happier about this bag now that I have it than when I just knew it was coming!  

 

Contents-wise, I got the brow gel and brown liner.  I've never used brow gel (I have great brows all by themselves, and I've actually been told by aestheticians to not bother waxing them, so I just leave 'em alone except for the random once a year or so when I get a bizarre long blonde hair mixed in there amongst the medium browns), but I actively dislike mascara, so I'm happy to give this a shot.  I don't even care whether it's almost empty (it seems to have *something* in it) because I'll probably use it three times and forget about it, so as long as I can try it a few times, I'm good.  I'm not a fan of brown liner because it just seems *boring* to me (and I think this particular shade is almost exactly the same as my eyes, which is another reason I feel weird about brown eye liner:  I don't like to match my eye color to my eye makeup color.  I don't believe in matching nails and lips, either), but I have three black eyeliner pencils I don't wear already, and I think it will work with the brown duochromatic shadows I've picked up recently.  And it's a lot softer/creamier than I had been expecting!  I *hate* hard eyeliners.  The smudgier the better for me as long as it doesn't basically *melt* like those Eyeko fat pencils Birchbox sent out earlier this year.  I'm going to be using this one as a sort of anchor for shadow (I have some shades that need a little help sticking to my skin, but they also need some sort of color under them in order to look right, kind of like how some flakie polish looks best over dark creams, so the primer I've tried isn't enough for them), so I don't mind that it's not heavily pigmented as long as they're at least *slightly* pigmented.

 

Anyway.  First bag!  Happy happy!  I'll be taking this to work tomorrow to show a couple of coworkers who are also new subscribers but who might not have their own bags yet.  I'm not going to wear the gloss until I'm over this ick, though.  Actually, I don't think I'll wear *any* of it until then because I will forever associate these products with this cold, and I already ruined a couple of previously-fantastic perfumes that way four years ago.  And I'm going to flip the value around here:  What portion of my $10 would be assigned to each of these items (I'm in accounting, and I like to play with numbers this way)?  I'm breaking things down as follows:

  • $3 -- nail polish
  • $3 -- lip gloss
  • $2 -- eye shadow
  • $1 -- eye liner
  • 50c -- brow gel
  • 50c -- bag

 

It's not that I *dislike* the brow gel and bag.  It's just that I love the nail polish and lip gloss equally (I'm a *huge* polish'n'gloss fan), the eye shadow is almost as awesome, the liner is about half as groovy as the shadow (I didn't find it hard *at all* compared to some of my other liners, and I need to give it a full day's wear before I can figure out whether it's too melty for me),and the gel and bag are about equal but less than the liner, so there we go.

I got the brow gel and the brown eyeliner, but was really hoping for the black eyeliner and the mascara... anyone want to trade? PM me if you do! Or e-mail me at (Email deleted per Terms of Service.)

darn, I guess I got somewhat lucky then, sorrry =/

But they are very good about replacing products, it takes sometime but at least you will recieve another product

post #858 of 1043

Got my first bag today. I loved all of it! Got the mascara and the eyeliner in chocolate.
 

post #859 of 1043

I will be getting a replacement eyebrow gel within 1-2 weeks.

post #860 of 1043

I just put the nailtini over my shellac manicure and then put another top coat over. It's so glittery and pretty! I think to look it's best it needs to have a base coat under it. I have a beige color and it looks great!
 

post #861 of 1043

I recieved a MyGlam bag in February, then canceled and signed up again in time for the October bag.  I have to say I am pretty impressed with both the October and this month's bags.  I ended up keeping just 2 products last month (the hair oil and mascara) and gave the rest to my neice, including the great little bag.  This month I'm keeping everything! 

 

I also recieved the eyebrow gel.  I havnet tried it yet, so I dont know if its dried out as some people here have stated, but even if it is, I think this month's Ipsy bag is still a great value.  I'm delighted with the products this month, and I love the chocolate brown makeup bag.

I do appreciate you trying to help.

 

They said they would send a replacement but even if they didn't, this has never happened before and I am generally pleased with my bag so it's not a big deal.

That sounds really pretty with the beige base coat.  I used it yesterday, and applied 3 coats without a base coat. I tend have a heavy hand when applying nail polish, so with the 3 coats it looked like solid glitter.  It was really pretty that way as well - very sparkly!  I think its a great polish for the holidays.  I had to remove it for work today though.  I thought it was going to be hard to remove but it really wasnt.  I did have to hold a nail polish remover saturated cotton ball over my nails a little longer than usual, but came right off.

Ugh! I got that blasted useless brow gel!

Was totally hoping for the mascara, then my bag would have been absolutely perfect, but I suppose you can't always win all the time sleepyhead.gif

I think we all got a nice deep brown colored bag.

Right, but the bag itself is pretty much the same bag we got last month in a different color scheme.

I noticed that too, but the quality of the material used for the bags are actually slightly different. Last month's felt sturdier and harder to wrinkle. The material for this month's looks a little cheaper, but for $10 I can't really complain.... especally when the bag isn't even the featured item.

I got my bag a day early! I got the mascara (YAY!) and the black eyeliner. Very happy about the bag this month. 

post #869 of 1043

This month's bag also has 'ipsy' embroidered on a tag on the inside, something I haven't noticed in any of the other bags, but I could be wrong.

post #870 of 1043
On the plus side my bag arrived a day early. On the negative side, I too received the empty/dried out brow gel. Has anyone received one that wasn't dried out?
