Lol - same sayings are just fun I suppose.  I could go into empty marrow supplies...but that would be too much (yay for experiences in Oncology nursing)

Plus, sending out a product like that from an unknown company (at least unknown to me) makes me not want to buy any of their other products. If they can't get it right on a promotional item which is supposed to suck you in, how am I going to trust that they'll get it right when I actually have to shell out big bucks for other products? Also, the fact that they had this happen on what I would say is the majority of their samples makes me wonder if they didn't know about it from the start. Maybe not myglam, but maybe chella knew they were being cheap with their samples...

I'm with you on this. And really, sitting here, I thought, I've got time, let me try it. I could not get that stopper out with my fingernails. Maybe its just me, but it's not budging. And like you said, I don't want to have to fight with that every time I want to use it. Ugh.

I have one that kind of looks like it was, can't be sure if it was just the "cover" rubbing against it or someone smudged it. I haven't used it yet, I'll take a pic when I get home.

*edit*

if its any consolation, the Mary Lou Manizer that I got from BB had that same "fingerprint" looking mark on it, so I'm not that worried. Then again, my second eyeshadow is perfect.

I love the nail polish.  SEW MANY GLITTERSSSSS.

Eh, I don't think the shipping weight thing matters.  Mine was .37 and it was the eyebrow gel...thought for sure it was going to be the mascara...bummer!  But still elated with the bag!!!

I think the expression is from looking at bones that you've picked clean after you've eaten the flesh off of them. Chicken bones are pretty dry.

Chicken bones always seem gross and squishy to me after I cut them up before I cook XD;; But that does make sense.

post #912 of 1043

My shadow had a slight fingerprint almost like it's been swatched.  I think it should be fine.  I don't know.

I always think they're incredibly tasty to clean especially if you're eating fried chicken.

>D I love fried chicken.

 

A little too much.

 

I wonder if I can convince my family to get fried chicken for thanksgiving instead of eating a dry turkey lol

Just e-mailed them about my dry chella brow gel.  I was really hoping to get this and hope they will send me a replacement so I can actually try it.smiletongue.gif

post #916 of 1043

I got my bag today!! I love it love it love it :)

I received the eyebrow gel which is fine with me since I haven't owned an eyebrow gel.

And the thing with eyebrow gels is that you don't need a lot of product. I tried the anastasia eyebrow gel and its very "gel" like not goopy but very moist. And you can over apply the gel on your eyebrows which make them hard & almost crusty looking. So by having this eyebrow gel only having very little product on the wand is actually a good thing. My eyebrows looked nice & in place.

I put on the eyeshadow today - what a beautiful color.  I know some people were worried that it is too dark - but I found that a little goes a long way.

 

The pencil was good for tight lining.

to this brow:

^This is probably what you'd get with the starlet liner as an eyebrow filler--a bold, well-defined brow. Though if you're just starting to experiment, a natural brow would probably more forgiving of mistakes.

 

I have black hair and I use the Clinique brow shaper in 'charcoaled'--it's super ashy, almost more a grey than a brown. It's $15 but it'll seriously last you a lifetime lol. I've used it for the past two years and I've barely made a dent.

 

 

I have dark blonde hair, and I use the Clinique brow keeper as well (the one with the brow brush (looks like a dry mascara wand) one one side), in Honey. I LOVE it. I have used BeneFit's Brow Zing (light brown), but it's a little too dark and it takes longer. I love that the Clinique one is so easy and fast to use, and it looks very natural. Lorac also makes a similar one that is pretty great.

Lol I love how the conversation turned to strange talk about bones...It really is an odd saying, but so is "There's more than one way to skin a cat" I mean who skins cats??? And who thought of multiple ways to do it??

And now I am worried because of the watch & who knows if I will get my bag. 

This really sucks...why post office why???


This has happened to me before.

I waited like a week even though the website said it was in my town until i finally received it in the mail.

I know, its a pain in the butt. Call the post office to make sure though.

I like the look of the bag and all, but I HATE the zipper part. The lining inside near the zipper is way too close. Mine keeps getting stuck and after getting it unstuck, there's holes all over the inside. Once I get one part unstuck, it gets stuck at another part, TOO ANNOYING! I basically have to keep it open so I won't close it & get it unstuck. It took forever for me to unzip it, I was so close to cutting it open, hate it! pissoff.gif

post #922 of 1043

My zipper kept getting stuck until I examined it closely and saw a lone little tooth out of place.  But after nudging it back into place, I haven't had a problem with the zipper since then.  Just look at the zipper and see where it's stuck and re-orient it. I think the reason why so many people had problems with the zipper getting stuck is because of the material they were using with the zipper.

I went to my post office & guess what they had it there!!!

They were asking me if I had recently moved? Or if there was a slip in my mailbox. But neither of those two things happened. 

They had 3 packages of mine there & they told me that the mailman tried to deliver them to me but my box was too small & that he should have left a slip. If I had never gone in I would have never known, I had a box of samples, my watch, & my Ipsy bag. 

post #924 of 1043

I got both my bags! Lucky me, I got one mascara & one brow gel. My brow gel def seems empty/dry but Ill try it out later before emailing. I got 2 black eye pencils, which is cool with me. And one of my polishes looks like it has def been opened. o_o But everything else is awesome!

UGH - my "projected" delivery date was today, the 15th. I ALWAYS receive it way early. Once, I received it so early I had actually forgotten about not even checking my spam for the tracking number. And now....still nothing. >=[

Same here. My bag has been in town since the 13th and was projected to be delivered yesterday (15th). Hopefully, we both get it in the mail today!!!

Yup, I did that, but it still didn't work, it still keeps getting stuck. D:

I don't think the phrase refers to bones of living organisms. if something's decomposed to the point where only the skeleton is visible, chances are it's pretty dry. like how in cartoons, when they show a desert, they always include that quintessential buffalo skull. metaphors tend to be pretty visual

me too! I have two bags, and one of my eyeshadows was shattered while the other was obviously swatched.
