I just purchased a gift subscription for someone--do you think they'll be able to sign up in time for the January bag, or would they probably have to wait for the Feb bag?

Last month was my first time subscribing to Ipsy, I signed up Dec 8 and was still able to receive the Dec glambag.  I think the cutoff date may depend on how much inventory they have vs. how many subscribers though.  You could probably drop a note to them to find out for sure if your giftee would be able to get the Jan bag.

The only thing I'm not excited about is the nailtini- Everything else I'm super excited about- especially the Argan oil. Big sexy hair is my fav hair spray- it's amazing- u gals will luv!!!

I just can't stop wondering what the other 'classic' nail polish shade is... what's more classic than a plain bright red?  My guesses are:

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

-Irish Creme (Light Creamy Caramel)

-Frothe (Sheer Neutral Buff)
-Champagne (Glistening Icy Beige)
-Pink Poodle (Rich Mocha With a Hint of Mauve)
 
 

 

If I had my choice, I'd love Navy Grog (Deep Midnight Indigo), but that is definitely not a classic color! Of course, who knows what Ipsy considers a neutral?

One of their shades is called Classic Rita so that's my guess!

I hope not... Yellow nail polish? Not my thing... But the "classic" in the name does make me think you're right, they do stuff like that.  Oh well. I can always trade if I don't like the color!

On a side note, I ordered from UD on the 30th and my order shipped yesterday. I didn't get an email about missing an item so I'm happy about that. (p.s. I ordered an eyeshadow and the on sale lip gloss and the mystery travel bag-my second one-and got the ipsy bag PLUS all the extra goodies they were promising. With free shipping at $35 I couldn't resist!)


I was in Duane Reade yesterday and saw the whole collection of SOHO brushes including the one we are getting. It was a City Duane Reade so the prices were $11 and up.

I understand repeating brands with large product ranges, an eyeshadow here, and a lipgloss, whatever, but same product same brand is getting kinda old myglam.

I think they are doing a lot better than BB who sends out non beauty items like food bars in different flavors and foil packets. I think this month is going to be awesome!

post #402 of 1419

I think at a certain point, repeating brands will just be inevitable, but as long as it's only one repeat brand a month it doesn't bother me too much. It just makes sense that brands that have already partnered are going to be more likely to partner again. Birchbox even has 1-3 repeat items or brands a month usually.

post #403 of 1419

I don't mind at all about repeat brands.  Repeat products (the same exact thing, color, smell, etc.) too close together would annoy me...but most brands have a variety of products and I don't mind sampling them all.  :D

This ends up in runny makeup, weird black lines that look like theyre on my eye, and dirty contacts I have to throw out earlier than I would a normal pair. icon_redface.gifThis also might be why my eyeliners, even good brands with good rated liners like UD, fade and slide.

post #405 of 1419

Well, I just chopped over a foot off of my hair, so now I've changed my mind...bring on the hairspray! lol

post #406 of 1419

biggrin.gif I certainly don't mind more Urban Decay, TheBalm, Tarte, Josie Maran, BareMinerals, Buxom, NYX, etc lol. I don't think we'll be getting any more of NuMe or Murad, hopefully.

 

They're pretty good about not repeating brands consecutively--the last time they had like, Mai Couture was a year ago. And the "be a bombshell lipgloss" isn't the same as the "Miranesse" lipgloss; they almost never repeat the same item (except for ones I'm happy about--i.e. the 24/7 liner). Though, I could do without all the bright red (most of their lip products, January's nail polish)--I wish they were more on-trend with colors or at least branched out more.

Agreed - "Oh oxblood is so in!" - then send us something in that color!  The color for 2013 is emerald" - then send us something emerald!

 

I still love Ipsy - but I do agree on the idea of giving us more on trend colors.

 

Not sure how I feel about the bag - I think once I can actually use the products I will be able to make up my mind.

I don't ever get foil samples from Birchbox, so I don't share this same sentiment. I get amazing variety of very novel products, ipsy definitely sends much more traditional products, and black liner is only fun for a couple months before it gets repetitive, same with brown shadow and black eyeliner. I own a ton of makeup already, so no black eyeliner is going to excite me... ever. I also always own at least one or two of every ipsy bag, this month, the josie maran, pacifica and I have MAC 224 and Sigma E47 crease brushes I know are better than soho. I still love ipsy, since I travel a lot, and love small products, like I have always been a sucker for travel sized :D

 

I cancelled glossybox and Birchbox and Ipsy together, since they always arrive on the same day for me, are total compliments to each other :) I love them both, I cancelled myglam for a few months back in early 2012, but they totally redeemed themselves, I have never had any bad birchboxes so I can't say wether one is better than the other really. :)

January 2013 Ipsy Bag Value: 

 

 

1. Big Sexy Hair Product($6) - All Big Sexy Travel Sized products are $6, I don't know if they are sending only one single type, or multiples, but same price
2. Nailtini Nail Lacquer ($13) - Listed on their website
3. Josie Maran Argan Oil($4.80) - This is the .17oz small sample size, same as QVC NBTT, which lists sizes. 1.7oz is $48.00
4. Soho Crease Brush ($8.99) - Listed on their website
5. Pacifica Body Butter ($7) - Again, not sure if its only going to be the tuscan blood orange scent, but they are all priced the same. 
 
Total: $39.79
 
Once again, totally awesome and well worth the $10! 
 
 
 
I love school break, I have so much time for playing with makeup samples. 
My mom got gifted the zero from last months bag, after she told me she was too old for liner, I looked in her vanity today and she bought the UD Smoked liners! Her best friend also recommended them to her apparently. I am always so interested in word of mouth makeup advice, since I get all mine from the web
post #410 of 1419

Thanks for the price breakdown!  Looks like we're getting awesome value again this month.

 

I'm currently rebuilding my makeup collection after a few years of having very little disposable income, (What? We need to buy diapers instead of lipgloss? Are you sure these kids don't come with a return policy?  KIDDING!) and in that time, pretty much all of my makeup expired/had to be thrown out.  So Ipsy's become a great way for me to rebuild my collection.  So I'm happy for anything they send me!  I especially love the lack of foil packets (I got 2 in my first BB. Sad panda) and their willingness to try to please us.  After all, we pretty much asked for a makeup-free bag this month.  Of course, this is just my opinion, and many of you have very justifiable reasons for not liking the products.

 

gypsiemagic, I'm the exact opposite of you... now that my kids are back in school, I have time to play with samples!

I got tons of foils from BB. One time I had 4 foils in ONE box!!! I canceled the next month.

Yes! I am always pleased when the box value is high, even if its already stuff I own.

dang, thats no fun, sometimes I get an extra sample in a foil that is the same brand as one of the bigger samples, but its always listed as an extra on the card, so I don't pay much mind to it, since its not part of my promised 4-5 samples. 

 

I guess everybody like the disparity in the boxes as long as they are getting the better outcome.

post #414 of 1419

Just chiming in on packets...the only ones I've gotten in 1 year that weren't marketed as packets were the befine debacle, Suki balancing regimen (5 packets), fekkai shampoo & conditioner, and do the Caldrea hand soap pods qualify as a packet? Anyway, I've had pretty good luck I guess..

post #415 of 1419

Wow... that's VERY cool. Makes me wish I took advantage of that promo. Oh well, not like I need more stuff to accumulate dust.

Awesome!! My UD order is waiting for me at the post office, instead of the brush I got an eyeshadow :)

post #418 of 1419
nope, I ordered the make up brush and the mystery travel bag with the all nighter setting spray, curling mascara, a mini 24/7 shadow pencil and the full-sized lip junkie. everything else was free with the ipsy travel bag and inventory samples they were giving out!

Mine got here yesterday too! I ordered Naked Basics and the 'mystery kit' and essentially got all the same things/shades except the mini liner. Mine was in Mildew.
