Ipsy Glam Bag: August 2013 discussion (SPOILERS!) - Page 56

post #1651 of 5251

Is it possible that the items that appear to be repeats are added in the picture there to throw everyone off (but in reality it's caused Ispy subbers to throw a gigantic hissy fit over repeated products icon_rolleyes.gif).  

 

My theory is no one is getting any of the seemingly repeated items, and that we're getting two of the four items that appear to not have been in very recent bags.  

 

I'll never quite understand the drama over something that costs $10.

ikr? We're all getting our money's worth, trying new things AND getting coupon codes. I'm trying to avoid their stream right now. They got some tough skin. :/

Yeah, but it might be, the color of the photo looks slightly altered :)

I really do not see anything there that I would not like to try. If there is a primer, I could do without that since they never seem to go well with my skin. I am very curious as to what is in the other tube though. And really, that eyeshadow could be one of a lot of brands. A lot of indie brands use pots/sifters like that too.

Interesting theory. I guess we'll have to wait to see what tomorrow brings :-D

 

I will say though that the concern about duplicate items is justified in my eyes, maybe not as whiny as is typically done on the FB page but I don't think it is unreasonable to expect to NOT get the same item 2 months in a row and I'm sure if they really are sending out past month items they'll make sure. I'm just hoping they come on and clarify (and that should calm the masses, even just a bit, lol)

 

ETA: wanted to clarify that I meant for an individual to get the same item twice, I'm totally cool with them sending out past products if it gives those of us a chance who missed out the first time to get one again :)

I agree with this theory! Maybe they took the picture a while back and didn't know which items would be in which bags.

If I got a repeat of Micabeauty shimmer in Earth I'd be thrilled. Not that I think that's what it is...but yeah. .quality stuff!

I would love something from Chella just for the discount code! I've been using that highlighter pencil they sent out as a concealer and I don't know what I'll do when i use it all, but its too expensive for me to buy another one without a discount!

I think someone mentioned a couple pages back about how the Michael Todd KNU anti-aging face lift cream was on sale at Living Social for $25 (apparently $150 value). I'm just here to sweeten the deal biggrin.gif You can get an additional $10 off $25 LS purchases with code AUG10

Hmmm. that's an interesting theory!

The eye bright liners is light tan/off white, whatever color you want to call it.  I do think that's what it is.  Kind of bummed because I'm getting one of those in the Fall Allure Beauty Box.

They might have really edited the photos like cray. *spoiler* at least one of these looks like the color on the company website. Idk if what I'm trying to suggest is coming out right, lol.

I loved the mine too. Matte highlighter is so under rated.

See that totally looks like their usual light green to me. Could be my monitor though.

This is only going to be my second bag  (and I didn't get the nailtini last month) so no real worry about repeats, but I do think the people freaking out on Facebook might want to wait. I mean, Ipsy keeps track of everything they've sent us, don't they? I'm sure there's something in place to ensure they don't send the same items to the same people.

 

I just hope that if it is that Chella brow pencil, that's not what I get. I'm half-Greek, and I have black hair. The one type of cosmetic I've never felt the need to use is anything to do with my brows. XD

Ok, yeah this one looks light green too so NM me LOL.  I swear I have seen one that was off-white before, but I do think the shape looks the same?

It also looks to me like the pencil tip is dark where the PIXI one would be light...

The only problem w/this theory is the trading forums.  I traded for the Nailtini last month.  Now if I receive it in my bag this month, then I have 2 & will then need to trade one. I guess it just seems counter-productive.

post #1670 of 5251

It looks like there are a couple of repeat items from previous bags. I am cool with that! I didn't get the nail polish last month and I'd love to have it. It looks like that might be a NYX cream blush, which I also didn't get, so I would be ok with that too. I am sure that if these ARE repeat items they will be sent to people that didn't get them in the past. People on facebook need to calm down. All that stress and anger is bad for the skin!

Funny thing is, when I got an email notification about a new post where someone mentioned 'whovian,' my thought was Dr. Seuss. You know--Whoville. Lol! I watched Dr Who when I was a kid (the one with the multi colored scarf and curly hair) but I kind of grew out of it, primarily due to the low production values of those old shows. I did watch a few with Tennant, I think it was--the really cute one 2 or 3 docs back. I think the Marie Antoinette episode was most memorable for me, along with the one where he left a copy of himself to stay with the girl (Rose?). Still, all in all, I think I like Dr. Seuss just as well. ;)

I think that's just a risk we have to take when we trade, though...several times now I have traded for something I wanted from Birchbox and then later gotten the same thing in my box. Annoying, but not their fault.

 

And I just took a couple of Ipsy items that I hadn't gotten (nyx mosaic blush and the be a bombshell blush in the color I didn't get) out of the circular swap box, so it would be just my luck to get them in my bag now, lmao...

post #1674 of 5251

They have no control over trading - just like they have no control over things we've purchased independently and separately. I'm sure plenty of folks have also received things that they purchased of their own volition recently, but that's not really Ipsy's fault, right?

Good point, especially since they provide a forum for trading. Also, I got the Nailtini last month and decided to keep it (even though it is a color I will wear very, very rarely) just because I have nothing else like it and no other products from Nailtini. BUT I was tempted to try and trade it for one of the Pop lip crayons. I got 2 bags and both were the fuschia color. I dawdled around trying to decide if I wanted to trade my duplicate fuschia for the brown/rose color or the coral. By the time I decided I wanted the brown/rose most, I figured it was too late to trade. If I had known Nailtini was an option (since I only got it in 1 bag last month) I might have tried harder to acquire all 3 pop crayons. IDK. The repeats are kind of frustrating all the way around IMHO.

Oh I sure hope we get those sometime, though it looks like all the spoilers are out and it won't be this month. Fingers crossed for next month!!

post #1678 of 5251

Is it bad that there's not ONE item that I'm super-excited about in this pic?  I wouldn't be disappointed to get any of them, but I'm also not all "I WILL DIE IF I DON'T GET THAT" either.  

 

Looks like the "make it or break it" item for me this month is the UD lipstick... hopefully either the Ipsy gods or the trading gods will be merciful! eusa_pray.gif

No, not Ipsy's *fault* but since the whole point (from a business perspective) is to get us to buy products after trying them (AND they provide promo codes) then it seems logical to expect them to factor in the possibility of us buying/already having a product if they do repeats. Especially since the promo codes are for everyone, whether we get a particular product or not, just for being Ipsy subbers. On the other hand, I also understand them wanting to use up old stock they have on hand, if they have a good bit of it. I wish they'd find another way to do it, though, and yes, restrict those items for totally new subscribers only.

I agree with both of you. I didn't mean to imply Ipsy could control trading. 

 

I have never seen Ipsy send out the exact same product 2 months in a row. And hopefully this isn't the case, because right now it's just speculation.  But if they are going to start sending out repeats it could be a problem for some people (especially those who trade here or on the Ipsy FB trading forum.)
