I just received my second bag and I got the mascara. I'm so happy I ended up with a mascara and brow gel.

I finally got my bag! I noticed the "fingerprint"-like pattern in my eyeshadow as well. However, ladies and this is just a guess - but I think that is actually from the magnet in the front of the e/s because it just clips shut to the e/s pan, right? Mine did look like a fingerprint but with no lines or anything in it like a regular fingerprint - and if it had been a print it was definitely indented enough that it would've shown the lines in the finger. Just my guess and I'm taking solace in it lol.

I would like to second or third the love of the lip gloss! Gorgeous color!

post #934 of 1043

I was trying to hold out until after I was over this cold (TEN DAYS and counting!  Aargh!  At least I was able to stay home today and sleep in until 11am -- I normally get up at 5am, so 11am is probably the equivalent of 1pm or 2pm for most people -- and have two more days after this to just rest and try to drown the cooties), but I just couldn't hold out on the shadow and liner any longer.  Yikes, this brown liner is *way* too light and warm for me.  It looks like…  I'll just say it doesn't look good *at all*.  But!  I won't throw it out (I've used it, so I'm not going to put it up for swap) because it disappears under the shadow, which is a *great* color for me, and I prefer to use liner rather than primer as a base for shadow.  It's easier to do my usual goes-past-smoky-and-verges-on-bender eyes that way.  

 

I'm still holding out on trying the gloss and polish for a few more days.  There's no point in wearing gloss if I'm just going to smear it all over my tea mug, and my nails are currently a-england Tristan, and I like to wait until I show a little more tip wear with this color because I *love* it.  Dark blue scattered holo?  It's always very difficult to stop looking at it.  This is one of my all-time favorite polishes and one of my standard recommendations whenever someone is trying to decide what to order from that company.  Hmm, I wonder how it would look with Nailtini Millionare tips...

I agree. I thought for sure that I was receiving the brow gel because my package was 0.346 but I got the mascara instead. No complaints :) I was a bit shocked when I saw it though. 

post #938 of 1043

same! Mine was suppose to be delivered on the 15th. It was in my city since the 13th and it went to another city on the 15th. Da heck?! I called UPS customer service and some lady said it's because that's where they "sort out" what gets deliver to where. I call this BS cause this is the first time that I've had trouble with UPS after having multiple items delivered by them in the past. It finally delivered today though. But still, really? Going to a different city to get the items "sort out" when it was in the correct city 2 days ago...

Michelle Phan's November Ipsy look:

I think she looks gorgeous and I wonder if she specifically sought these products just to pull of this look. :D  Anyways, I'm super happy because I want to use the eyeshadow for brow filling!

 

edit: I had to re-embed the link since for whatever reason it wasn't playing.

I have the clear brow gel and the Moxie lip gloss in dare devil for trade that I won't be using. Message me if you're interested in a trade.

Has everyone received their bags?  Mine hasn't come but I also haven't received a ship confirmation email either.  I sent them an email now I'm just waiting on a reply.  I wanted to see it was just me.

There's UPS, and then there is UPS Mail Innovations.  Ipsy uses the latter.  Plain old classic UPS gets sorted out locally, and it delivers directly to your house.  UPS M-I gets delivered by the post office, and it can indeed go to a different city before final delivery.  Mine goes to an entirely different *state*.  The tracking used to show that packages went through a town about ten miles away from me, then to the sorting hub a hundred and fifty miles away in another state, and then back to my city for final delivery, but I think they took interim stops out of tracking because they no longer show up even though I know the packages are still following the same route.  It just depends on where the UPS M-I-to-USPS sorting hub is located.

I'm in the same boat. I was going to email on Monday.

I'm pretty sure it only works for new members, so maybe that's why? Basically you have to create a new account to be able to use it.

I didn't want to completely redo my nails, but I was getting antsy about wanting to change them up a little (I've been wearing this same color since *Wednesday*!  That's like a year in Meagan-nail-polish-wearing time) and use this month's polish, and so this (I can't seem to make the photo appear in the post, so I'm going with a link) happened.  a-england Tristam (a gorgeous scattered holo that looks like a photograph of the cosmos) with Nailtini Millionare on the tips (I left my thumbs alone, but I might do full nails of Millionaire for Monday if I don't completely redo my nails before then).  I dig it.  I'm thinking I might even do a red-and-gold thing with a-england Perceval as the base closer to Christmas.  I'm not a big red nail fan, but I think the gold will pull it far enough away from a traditional nail for me to be okay with it.  This would also be good with a green polish, of which I have many, including two a-england holos.

 

(Yes, that's a purple leopard print polarfleece blanket, in case anyone was wondering.)

Thanks for posting this.  I'm going to try to create this look but I'm pretty fair so we shall see......

This was my first month with ipsy and i just got my bag  yesterday. I'm not so crazy about the polish though but besides that very pleased with  the products!!!yess.gif

For those of you with the eyebrow gel:

 

I have been storing my eyebrow gel with the cap side down standing up on end.  It seems to have plenty of gel this way but what a pain as I can't lay it down in my cosmetic case at night.  I wonder if the full size ones are like this?

I really love the Moxie Lipgloss! It smells like mint chocolate to me, has a slight cooling sensation, and looks so pretty on the lips (I was worried it would look too dark). It is a little sticky but it's not too sticky so I don't mind.

 

I also love the eyeshadow. I wasn't expecting much but the shade is something I'll definitely use. The sample packaging is awesome!

 

I'm not a fan of the nail polish though. I would have liked it more without the blue/green glitter. Actually, I think I would have loved it if it was just gold glitter.

 

I'm can't wait until next month's bag!

Mine goes to a city about two hours south (Columbus), then to another city about two hours from my city and Columbus both, which happens to be in PA, then to my city. It makes a weird little ridiculous triangle. Fedex's version of UPS MI is even worse when I'm having things shipped from Zoya, which is only about 45 minutes away. It goes from Cleveland, to a town roughly 20 minutes north of me, to Columbus, then to PA, and finally to my city. In what land is this more efficient?

I just re-subscribed and am quite impressed by how much MyGlam/Ipsy has improved since I canceled several months ago. I received my bag today and like all of it; however, the glitter polish and chocolate colored eye pencil are just not for me. So, if anyone is interested, they are 

 

UP FOR TRADE:

 

  • Starlet eye pencil (Chocolate)
  • Nailtini nail polish (Millionaire)

 

I would be interested in any of the other products in the bag or an equivalent. Drop me a message, if you're interested. :)

hi everyone - new poster here - i have been subscribed for myglam/ipsy for 6 months and just cancelled after this bag.  i got the brow gel which is a major disappointment because i LOVE mascara.  the nailtini was nice and the pencil, but everything else i am meh on.  i almost wish they would stop giving a bag and give us an extra product.  i am probably still going to lurk and find out what are in the next few bags in case i want to sign up again.

Good luck with that.  wink.gif  The last two months, I cancelled right after receiving the bag.  Then the spoilers pulled me back in and I reordered before missing a single one.  Not even trying it this month - just resigning myself that I'm going to spend this $10.

 

My name is Mellee, and I'm an Ipsoholic.

The mascara was intended for the 1st 1,000 new subscribers if I recall correctly and Ipsy has well over 50,000 subscribers so the chances of getting a mascara was slim. I wish everyone could have received a mascara because I think people would have been happier with that then the Chella.

I was an old subscriber and got the mascara.

I just found a new way to make use of the bag: protecting cotton pads in your handbag :P 

This idea came to me because I bought an 'always radiant kit' in pharmacy and found the bag in it is just the size of ipsy bag.
