I just definitely feel that they could've totally gone about it in a more fair, better way to satisfy their entire community rather than just "influencers". but it's done and I'm over it, but it could've been thought out a little differently.

I am actually not "miffed" by not getting it --I already got the sample from Urban Decay.  But, when reading comments as Baberanza mentioned above, not everyone who received sample was being "rewarded" for their "influence."  That's the only thing I don't get.  If in fact it's only a reward for activity with ipsy community and blogs and such then why are people getting it who have not done such?  I'm only curious.  Not upset, not angry or anything about not getting the sample.  I actually have done a few youtube videos and I think a blog or two about ipsy/myglam and wasn't chosen so I wonder if it really was more random and they wanted to have a way of explaining why some people got the sample.  Maybe they felt people would react better to it being a reward for contributing...I really dunno.  I guess I just don't get why if it's a reward some people would get it when they weren't active.  I think it might've been better for them to just say some people might be getting a bonus sample at random. 

 

And while on the topic of the sample, I have used some of it and it's just ok, which pains me to say that because I love BB creams and UD.  I don't need full coverage, but I prefer a little more coverage.  I would say I received more coverage from the maybelline BB cream.

 

From what I understand from the product info, it is not meant to provide any coverage but rather aims to improve the appearance of skin through light diffusion.

 

I personally prefer my traditional bb cream...

I don't think it's oily at all, it is a bit thin, but it has that silicone texture, not an oily one.

A little goes along way with the eye powders. The only thing I didnt like outside of having a smudge on my bag  was the lip gloss broke my lips and tongue out. I feels like I drank a scolding hot drink.  I love the rest,this was my first Ipsy bag.

I received my tracking and bag on the same day (Monday) & I live in PA. If it's not in your mailbox tomorrow, I'd shoot them an email. =)

November and December are my first months back with them since February, and I didn't receive any sort of email or tracking for either Nov or Dec. They both just kinda showed up!

I used it all over my lid and blended some gray into the crease...super pretty. Would also be nice with some brown or a purple. :)

I do this with all new foundations/face products. I wear them on my hand/wrist for a full day to see what happens to them before I put them on my face. 

 

I have weeded out a couple of naughty products this way :) 

 

you can catch bad staying power, and bad oxidation this way.

if you think of it like color theory, then its not surprising that different amounts of the same thing can have vastly different results. not to mention the few products they differ, you end up with completely different products.

I got online and made my list!  And there's an Ulta in my area, so I'm actually going to swing by there this weekend.  I'd rather use the lesser coupon ($3.50 off) and not have to pay for shipping!  And thankfully, the NYX is on sale thru 12/24.  But yeah, I'm so happy I discovered these!

 

I got Walnut Pearl in my bag, and I'm getting:  Nude, Mink, Silver, Charcoal, Sky Pink, and Lilac 

 

Now I have to get some of those sifter jars...

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Anyways, I love my box, I knew I loved the eyeliner cuz I already have it, I wouldn't have bought a red lip gloss and I'm glad I got this one, the bf seems to like it :D And I kinda like how it looks for me,I'm not sure though,  I have a good sense of smell and to me this doesn't smell or taste like anything(maybe I'm sick?  lol). The highlighting papiers don't look orange on my skin, I was surprised! They actually just give a nice highlight, I wore them on my nose and cheek bones. I got the NYX Pigment in Silver, I don't know if I had a silver eye shadow, but I liked this one, I haven't tried out the primer cuz I have plenty of them. Overall I loved my bag :) I made a little "look" with the products I got: 

700700

Do you guys think the red looks good on me? I'm not so sure.

 

 

On a funny note, the bf got home from work and ofc kissed me...this is what happened:

He didn't want to let me take a picture lmao...but I made him do it *evil laugh* 

Oh also love the baggie and I posted swatches on the blog ^^ 

You look so pretty, thanks for sharing!  And that pic of your boyfriend is hilarious - I kissed my 3 year old and she had a perfect mouth print on her cheek :)

I haven't received my bag yet, but I guarantee I will not be using the primer. Anyone want it?

I know there's a trade, but it's Christmas :)

post #1038 of 1207

I got the NYX color in charcoal (if I spelled that correct) and I love it.  I used it today and I was pleasantly surprised.  Loose shadows/pigments are usually a pain for me cause it seems they have so much fall out.  I was shocked I didn't have ANY at all. :)  And this is my first NYX product.

post #1039 of 1207
I got the highlighter papier in St Bart's (did everyone?) and the eyeshadow in walnut pearl. I will trade the papers but the eyeshadow looks beautiful. The lip gloss will go to a friend as part of a Xmas present. I may keep the eyeliner or give it as a gift. I rarely wear black.

Thanks for the 3 months, Ipsy. It's been fun! smile.gif

So it's a UD dupe! Cool! Love dupes.

For all who mentioned wanting some kind of primer for the eyes that is not greasy, you might want to check out the New York Color eyeshadow compacts (found in probably any drugstore/Walmart, etc). It comes with 4 shadows, a primer and an illuminator (which I don't particularly like but that's just me). The whole thing costs about $4.99 and the primer works great for me! I just put some on my ring finger and apply it to my lid. Shadows stick to it really well and it doesn't feel greasy at all. And for the price, you get some extra eyeshadows (I have it in a neutral/brown palette that I do use on occasion).

Nice! I am going to keep an eye out for these. For $5 it is definitely worth a try.
post #1045 of 1207

I have that but I never tried the base! The shadow are kinda powdery but the pigmentation is alright.

post #1046 of 1207

I'm trying to buy a bunch of NYX through the Ulta website and I can't :'(

post #1047 of 1207
Ummm.. my package says it was delivered on the 10th, but I've not received it. Shoot!

Maybe you're allergic to an ingredient in the lipgloss.

Just received my bag and my NYX shadow is in Walnut Pearl :) love the color and everything else in the bag.
