I have one in "Gypsy Blue" - let me tell you - that sucker stays on from 530am to at least 10pm (I sleep in my make up - sooo shameful - and most of it is still on when I wake up).

Yes, argan oil is safe for the skin. I Haven't looked closely at the Organix, but it is actually serum/spray with other ingredients in it, not pure argan oil. Like the Nume "argan oil" we got is actually full of silicones and chemicals with some argan oil in it...they are products made for the hair so they have hair specific ingredients in them. The JM is 100% pure argan oil.

 

It's the other ingredients in the "argan oil" products that are coming out lately that have so many other things in them that you have to worry about. And odds are, even with those, unless you're sticking them directly in your eye, they're not going to hurt, either, it's a liability thing.

the weekend + holiday is the only reason we haven't seen a bunch of sneak peeks all at once. it's only the second day of the month, mind you.

If you're using pure argan oil, it's safe for hair, nails, skin. Hair products usually have a small amount of argan oil added, which gives them free reign to advertise it as such. What you'll see with most skincare items is going to be 100% argan oil, trade certified and all that jazz. Only then can you apply it head to toe. smile.gif Unless, it's a cream moisturizer and then it'll have a percentage of argan oil.

Generally, any time some new wonder ingredient pops up, most beauty companies want to get a piece of it. I'd just be sure to read labels. Most advertising is misleading. I looked at several hair products last year, from drugstore to prestige, every single label had argan oil listed towards the bottom of the label list. Since labels usually read with the heaviest(is that right?) ingredient, I assumed the products were essentially the same as older versions, but with a few minute drops of the wonder ingredient.
I ended up just buying pure 100% trade certified argan oil online and using it sparingly on my skin and hair.

No such thing as a stupid question in beauty.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argan_oil
Argan oil is a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree (Argania spinosa L.), endemic to Morocco, that is valued for its nutritive, cosmetic and numerous medicinal properties.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argan
Argan grows to 8–10 metres high and live up to 150–200 years. They are thorny, with gnarled trunks. The leaves are small, 2–4 cm long, oval with a rounded apex. The flowers are small, with five pale yellow-green petals; flowering is in April. The fruit is 2–4 cm long and 1.5–3 cm broad, with a thick, bitter peel surrounding a sweet-smelling but unpleasantly flavoured layer of pulpy pericarp. This surrounds the very hard nut, which contains one (occasionally two or three) small, oil-rich seeds. The fruit takes over a year to mature, ripening in June to July of the following year.

As Linda mentioned above read the labels because most will say argan oil when it's practically near the end or last item in the product. It's the same with Macadamia Oil products and most anything else that's supposedly natural.

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE it if they sent a nail polish by Deborah Lippmann.
I think Deborah lippmann is too nice for ipsy, unfortunately .

I am so excited for this bag! I can't wait to see more spoilers. This thread is addicting thanks ladies! biggrin.gif
post #278 of 1419

Anyone else think that Ipsy is toying with us? Once they started releasing non-makeup items, people went CRAZY on the FB page.  I think there will be 1-2 makeup items, they just realized how many extra comments they were getting when they started with the body/hair stuff first.

 

I guess we'll see tomorrow/Friday.  Ah, the evil genius of subscriptions.

post #279 of 1419

Hi!

This is my first time posting on here...but I've been reading through the posts, so addicting. I wanted to let you ladies know, if you haven't seen, Birchbox posted on Facebook that they're getting moved into a new office. So that is probably why no sneek peek posts. 

post #280 of 1419

Sorry, I thought I posted this on the Birchbox page!!

hell yes to that!! I so want to try new brands I haven't tried before :)

They tried in the Spring to add a little Asian stuff like the eyelashes we got and people freaked the hell out that they were getting sub-par products from Asia because they couldn't read the packaging. I think it would be hard to convince some subscribers that some of those products are amazing! I would LOVE to see Korean stuff.

This was my first thought as well. But I did just buy a Deborah Lippmann mini duet for $19, so that figures out to $9.5 per small nail polish, which isn't any more expensive than some of the items Ipsy sends out.

I would be happy with it as well.  I have one DL nail polish and I love it.  So a mini would be a nice add on to my nail polish collection.

found the Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter tonight at my Marshall's for $2.99!!! I had never smelled it before tonight, but my goodness it is DIVINE! I went ahead and grabbed an extra tube for that price!

post #287 of 1419

Whyyyyy did I just look up these polishes? I must be a glutton for punishment... but I may just wither and fade away if I don't get the Puttin' on the Ritz set.  Luckily, my wallet jumped out of my purse and started whacking me on the head and screaming "No!!!!" when I contemplated spending $38 on a lipstick and nail polish.

 

*le sigh*

post #288 of 1419

The next spoiler is posted on the website. It's a nail polish, not sure what brand. Any ideas?

Pretty February color!

post #292 of 1419

I have mixed feelings about this D: 

post #293 of 1419
My vote goes with Mealeah. The bottle shape is all wrong for the other one.
post #294 of 1419

I like the bag itself but I wish there's at least a 5th item which is make up.......(not another eye liner or lip product though)

post #295 of 1419

I love the color :) 

That is a gorgeous red from that picture

post #296 of 1419

It looks like Nailtini to me too. The font on the bottle looks to be the same as the last bottle. I love the bag, inside and out, I don't have a blue yet! Please no more sale/haul posts, my credit card is hiding under the bed and refuses to come out, lol! ninja.gif

post #297 of 1419

This  is so cool, the hints, I swore last month I wouldnt  peek this time.Please no shampoo though.I cant wait,claps.gif

post #298 of 1419

Bleh, I don't mind polishes, but I generally dislike classic colors, reds, and cremes...love glitters, shimmers, and weirder colors though :) It's cool, more goodies to trade. :)

HA! I told myself I wouldn't peek either, but who am I kidding? Well, I can always try and be surprised next month, right? ..... eusa_whistle.gif

Someone on the Ipsy website pointed out that the caption says "Classic Colors", wondering if the plural means there will be a range of colors like the NYX last month?  They seem to have at least 1 item each month that varies, maybe this one is it.

 

And I happen to have my Nailtini sitting right next to me!  The logo totally looks the same when held at that angle.  I'm wondering if this is going to be like the Andrea's Circus polishes subscribers received over the summer.  Which would be fine, if they send creme colors I'll just layer the Millionaire over it and be on my merry way!  

 

This is the first full-size item this month, right?
