Nope, nearest one is two hours away. We now have an ULTA which sells NYX but they just opened this year. Prior to them opening I couldn't get my NYX fix.

I am excited for the lotion; heard Tuscan blood orange smells great!

I'd love to see..
-matte blush or bronzer sample
-hair ties or a lil accessory
-a lip liner or a clear lip liner. They r so handy!

I feel your former pain...the stores in my tiny town that have anything remotely beauty related .are Walmart, CVS, and Walgreens...I would kill for an Ulta!

So many requests for lip liners! Really hoping ipsy takes this into consideration

I am excited for the Pacifica lotion . I like their products and have never tried this scent!  I am trying to work through my lotion stash but this looks like a great size for the purse, desk or travel!  After reading all the rave reviews I am excited for the Josie Maran Oil too!

I live in a small town so the only place I can get NYX aside from online is at Ulta at a mall about 30 minutes from me. I really like NYX products... they are affordable and the quality is amazing for the price! I personally don't care that a jumbo pencil is only a $3.00 product... it would still be a full size product that would get ALOT of use rather than a little foil packet that probably wouldn't even be enough to let me see actual results. Plus... it would still be just 1 of the 5 items in a $10.00 bag so overall, you'd still get your money's worth with it plus the rest of the items, and the bag itself smile.gif

Yep, this is me, except my nearest Ulta or place I can find NYX, period is about an hour and a half away, and with the hours I work, I make that trip maybe once a year...bah! lol. But I don't care if a product isn't high end or super expensive, as long as I feel the bag was a good value, and I can and will use the things I got, I'm happy! 

 

I think that's why, in the end, I prefer Ipsy to BB...Birchbox has some higher end brands, but once I use that tiny packet up, I usually can't afford the full size...whereas Ipsy has introduced me to things like Coastal Scents shadows and Be a Bombshell liner that are quite nice quality, but I can totally afford.

 

And I feel like these subs are especially nice for us small towners...while I see a lot of girls on here say "why not just go to Sephora and pick something out??"...well, when your closes Sephora is a 2 hour drive, not always feasible. I do most of my cosmetic shopping online, so trying new things through these subs is priceless! :)

post #130 of 1419
Honestly, I'm kind of obsessed with lip products so glosses and balms and sticks are something I love.
I think they should consider including a roller ball as I love trying a new scent but the little samples don't last long at all.
I wouldn't mind a beauty blender or kabuki brush... Wink wink
Has anyone noticed we all generally want the same things? Lip liner, blush, etc?
post #131 of 1419
I don't know if this is everywhere... but the Sears in the mall by me has a pretty great makeup section and they carry NYX. !
post #132 of 1419

I'm excited with what we are getting so far, I haven't tried either of the 2 products in the spoilers, and so far we are getting body and skin(face) care I do think however that there should be at least one make up product, but I agree on it not being an eye liner or a lip gloss...unless it's a color eyeliner...but it's still kinda meh...I can't wait to see what else we're getting :3

lol...my nearest Sears is over an hour away too. :(  I am, quite literally, working with Walmart, CVS, and Walgreens, nothing more, in this god-forsaken town. MISERABLE!!!

post #134 of 1419
ouch. I'm sorry!
post #135 of 1419

I do have a Sears near me and now I will go there tomorrow to hunt down NYX wish me luck!!! :D I'm soooo excited!! yay.gifCuz I can't get NYX elsewhere :( (Ulta's too far D:)

I used to have a decent mall, at least, and even better shopping just a half hour away... and moving here was a hard adjustment, lmao.

 

Thank goodness for MUT and my subs!

post #137 of 1419

I live on my subs too! There's Rite Aid and CVS at walking distance but I am a Walgreens fan :(

Living in a ghetto place with no car is horrible. (I am an Asian female who can't drive at all)

The closest mall is in downtown but it has nothing. Not even Sephora. The nearest Sephora takes 1hr20min bus ride, so does Ulta. But because of that I have been doing well on my no buy though.

That is EXACTLY how I feel!
post #139 of 1419

My last wander into a Sears, I saw (to my surprise) it had a make-up/cosmetics area that was mostly drugstore brands...including NYX. Maybe call your local Sears and see if they're one of the few locations that has a cosmetics department? It's worth a shot...

post #140 of 1419

My nearest shopping place for anything is over an hour away...(the only store in my town is a small grocery store.) The nearest Ulta or Sephora is over a state away so I'm stuck with slim-pickins at Walmart or online shopping...I've always wanted to try more NYX products so I'd love to get more in any sub service! 

post #141 of 1419

I'm stuck with walmart cvs and walgreens too :( but if lived close to a sephora or ulta id be so broke lol id go everyday

I decided to dig out my first post that listed what I was hoping for.  I'm going to squint and say the facial oil is close enough to a moisturizing facial mask for my purposes, and body butter could be considered to be close enough to hand cream/body oil.  I'm wondering if a hair treatment and/or lip scrub might be on the way.  A lip scrub with a lip stain would be good:  I don't have a huge problem with chapped lips (I use too much balm and gloss for that!), but it's a common thing in winter, but you really need to address the issue before wearing a lip stain if you don't want to look like you have some sort of weird skin condition on your lips.  It seems like it would be a good way to get another winter care item in there *and* include a makeup item that is somewhat tied to the theme.  Or instead of a scrub *and* a stain, just go with a tinted lip balm, like Burt's Bees, Alba Botanical, Nivea, or Lucy B.  My first guess/hope would be Lucy B even though it's a more-expensive product since that's a newer brand that seems to be making a push in a few different boxes lately (Birchbox, Sneakpeeq), and they could do a mini pot like Mox did for Birchbox.

 

Anyway.  They're taking a break on the spoilers until Wednesday, but I do think they will probably have some makeup coming because they won't be able to have a Look Challenge otherwise.  But they also said they were doing products we haven't received before.  I haven't really been paying very close attention.  What other color cosmetics could they send if they wanted to shake things up?  Gel/cake eyeliner?  Lip stain?  

 

(Also, I dug out my huge jar of Tuscan Blood Orange body butter to refresh my memory of what it smells like, and it also has *berries* in it!  Raspberries and strawberries, to be precise.  It kind of reminds me of Strawberry C Monster juice from Odwalla.  I'm not sure whether that stuff still exists or was made outside of the Seattle area, but I drank a *lot* of that stuff when I was in college.  Love it.  Since I already have several jars of Pacifica body butters in various scents due to their last -- most recent one *and* the last one they were apparently ever going to have -- warehouse sale, I have enough jars for a year, but I'm always looking for smallish tubes of creams/lotions to toss in my purse/bag/desk, even if it's something I already have in a larger size.)

That's EXACTLY why I canceled BB. I can use a $3.00 jumbo pencil for a year, where a foil packet of $100 face cream will be gone instantly.

That's a great point! I like NYX and I can't get it anywhere(that might change now tho XD)

post #145 of 1419

As far as NYX, I live in a very urban area with lots of stores. I do have access to NYX  locally and I still love to get them. I think it is because I am not disappointed with their products or size so even if it is not too expensive it is definitely useful and fun.

post #146 of 1419

I would adore some eye wrinkle cream for target areas. I know IPSY isn't famous for stuff like that, but due to all the wonderful lip gloss sets on sale at Christmas, I'm good for a few years. *I splurged on the Lorac Sweet Temptations, Bare Minerals Moxie AND the Stila, so yeah* But I do look for other facial items *such as target wrinkle cream*. Of course, being older, I'm probably a minority. I do love this bag, though. I've found several favorites that I will reorder. The Bodybuilder mascara and my Bare minerals lip gloss being my favorites. I could do without anymore full sized eyeliner. That stuff lasts too long...but it's a good regift. that's where my UD of the last bag went. And for $10, really it's insanely good no matter what they throw my way. It annoys me when people think that everything should be an exact fit for them. A sample service is just that. Samples.

 

NYX: I live in a rural area and nobody sales it. I've been buying my NYX pigs off Ebay for years.

post #147 of 1419

I live in a fairly rural area as well... an hour drive to the nearest Ulta and/or Sephora (and the Sephora is in a JCP at the mall).  If I want a "real" Sephora store, I have to drive an hour and a half in another direction entirely! So these subs are pretty awesome for me finding new stuff.  And I agree with the ppl above, I'll be using my NYX pigment for a long time - it's useful, it's pretty, and who cares if it's a $3 product?  That just means I can afford to buy it again when I run out.  And when I did go to the "big city" for holiday shopping, I stopped in at Ulta and got 5 more colors!  

 

Although, a developing area about 20 minutes away has an "Ulta- Coming Soon" sign up in a plaza... my wallet is already starting to whimper 12.gif

post #148 of 1419
Whatever we get, I hope it's good! This is my birth month and so my bday is just around the corner. I actually got Ipsy as a Christmas gift last year, and since its month by month my mom will have to cancel it at some point... Until then I'm pretty in love with the Ipsy bags I have seen as opposed to the gloomy birchboxes I received.

To get rid of some of my makeup, hair, & skincare samples I had accumulated I made makeup & skincare bags for a couple of family members for Christmas. These were samples that I knew I would never use because either they were meant for a different skin type than mine or makeup I would never use. I made bags specially for each women if I knew they had curly hair I threw in some Miss Jessie's if they had dry skin I threw in some great dry moisturizer in there. They seriously loved them, they thought it was a sweet idea to give them these items so they could try them. 

 

Also, it feels great getting rid of all the items I wouldn't use. But it will not very long to starting hoarding a bunch of samples along with boxes & Ipsy bags. 

I did the same thing! I didn't have the funds to buy gifts, but I had plenty of unused samples. I was afraid they wouldn't be well received but I was totally wrong! They were very well received smileno.gif  So anything I get that I wont use is going in a box for future gifting.

YES YES YES to a lip scrub - i suffer from chapped lips (I work in a hospital - so the air is crazy dry and I'm often running around like crazy and forget I have a balm in my pocket) - I also have a hard time finding one that works all the time!

 

Nooooooo - I can't wait until Wednesday! bawling.gif  (lol)
