It's not hard for my family of 5 to spend around $20 at a fast food restaurant for dinner, since I got into subs it has really helped me cook more at home (which I should do anyway since it's usually the healthier choice!) and I use the savings to put towards my fun money each month, which is having these subs. 

 

But I've totally thought that going through a drive through and paying $7-$8 for a combo meal and thinking "gosh, that's almost a month of Ipsy!" lol

 

LOL This reminds me of this past weekend. On Saturday my youngest and I were in Yakima (WA) and we stopped at this burger joint called Miner's. It's "fast food" except the burgers are made fresh and are not frozen patties. Any how, I ordered the burger meal - a cheeseburger, fries and a medium drink... It was almost $12! JUST for THAT. She ordered onion rings ($5.49 I think) and a burger. Total price for everything was almost $25!! FOR TWO BURGERS, one fry, one onion ring and ONE drink!

Well...I am also kind of disappointed by the bag this month. That amazing glittery background is such a tease! I don't mind the colors but the logo all over it is kind of obnoxious (if only one of the logos had words I would probably like it a lot more).

 

That being said, I definitely don't care much about the bag. Most of them I just use for travel or they're storing smaller items under my bathroom sink, so no biggie. I could really do without them at all, honestly. I would rather Ipsy spend the $.25 it uses to make my bag on other things (faster shipping, better products, higher pay for employees, etc etc).

This make me incredibly sad that I will not be able to open my packages for so long.


DITTO!

 

Maybe I'm weird but I don't enjoy getting all my packages at once. My thought process is: spread out the fun because then I will enjoy each bag so much more. I think of my subs as gifts for good behavior like no mental health days and sticking to no-buys... ya know small goals for motivation. Anyway my point is I will have a pile of packages waiting and I will promptly tear them all open on my return.

Ooh, Miner's! Both of my parents are from Yakima, so I've been going there probably since I was able to eat solid food and stopping on the way out of town every time I go back to visit. I think my mom worked there when she was in high school. But, yeah, expensive. At least you get a ton of food, though. The last time I went there, I made my dad buy my dinner because we were visiting family, and he assured my aunt I could eat meat. She made beef hot dogs and hamburgers for lunch. I very awkwardly had to tell my dad that as of about 2006, I specifically cannot eat beef. It was a Very Not Good day. Lesson learned: always take a lot of snacks and eat them before visiting the family.

In related news, I have to clean out my fridge. I'm already cringing at how many ipsy bags' worth of hummus I will have to throw out.
post #2016 of 5251

Here is my wishlist.

 

1) Lip balm in Vanilla.

2) Pumpkin mask - dying to try this but would be happy with the mask too.

3) Mascara - would love to try the blue one.

4) Eyebrow pencil - at least hope it's one.

5) Primer, BB cream or eyeshadow. Praying I don't get the blush or nail polish - will trade those for sure.

post #2017 of 5251

My Wishlist

 

  1. Either UD or Noya (either way I'll use them)
  2. Either mask or scrub I'll use.  I love masks and scrubs equally
  3. The Mascara hopefully will be in black for me.
  4. Mica Beauty Shimmer
  5. Eyebrow pencil

    Although everything looks super fun!
     
post #2018 of 5251

My wishlist is basically anything but the primer! :) or bb cream, because it looks like it would be way too dark on me, though I love them.

Well, having a designated amount of money to blow on yourself is supposed to be really good.  Dave Ramsey says it's better than never doing anything, then one day saying "hey I never let myself do anything" and spend something that you shouldn't.

Paraphrasing of course.  That played a big part in why I finally joined Ipsy.

post #2023 of 5251
I'm getting so impatient waiting for my glam room to update and get my shipping email! I got the shipping email on the 10th last month and can't wait! Lol. I'm not even that excited about most of the potential items, so I'm not sure where this impatience is even stemming from. Haha.

Yep. Sometimes a bit earlier too :) The past couple of months I've gotten my tracking email on the 10th, but my bags had already started making their way to me the day or two before that :)

Definitely not the only fan!! I'm just getting caught up on this thread (it exploded!) so hopefully i'm not spoilering anyone.  I was a huge Matt Smith fan, so I'm sooo sad to see him go. My boyfriend's alarm tone is wakey-wakey, in part because it's a much less obnoxious way to wake up than a ringing buzzer. mmmm British accent and Matt Smith Charm.  The new guy seems dapper, but.. so hard to fill the shoes of Tennant and Smith!

Same here. Got the email the 10th but once the tracking info updated it appeared that it had actually shipped around the 7th.

Im bummed just for the fact that usually if im not excited for products I atleast have an awesome bag im excited for. Ive seen past bags and I think this is my least favorite one. It is very hogwarts to me also. And I feel like they were going in such a good direction with great bag designs....and is anyone as sad as I am that there are no sparkles! :/

Wouldn't it be funny if the back of the bag was all glittery and pretty? Then, you could probably just remove the gold and be happy without a bag makeover. Pretty sure that's not the case, but it would be kind of funny if it were. As for me, this whole bag will be a disappointment without the UD, but if I do get UD, I can let this one slide. If no UD for me, then this is the first strike for Ipsy. Not sure if I'll do anything when they get 3 strikes, but I might have to cancel, if those 3 strikes come within a short period of time.

post #2030 of 5251

Late to the party again (sorry, catching up) but couldn't resist. I'm a hobby-potter, and getting fairly good at wheel throwing, but wanted to experiment with altering forms, so I threw a vase and made it into a corset shape to hold my brushes.  I like it, but it's a little deep for my smaller brushes, so I'm experimenting with a new nesting set of three different sized cylinders.  I'll post pic whenever I finally get it glazed:)

 

post #2032 of 5251

I don't love the bag itself but I'll use it, so it's fine with me. My dream bag:

 

1. Lipstick

2. Mask

3. Mascara

4. Eyeliner/brow pencil/whatever it is

5. Blush

 

Can't wait to see what I'm getting!! This is also my 1st month with Birchbox, so extra subscription fun this month :)

1. Lipstick!! (Must have ALL. THE. LIPSTICKS.)

2. Pumpkin Mask (I have more than enough facial scrub right now.)

3. mascara (double meh.)

4. loose powder shadow(?)

5. cream blush or the mystery tube (as long as it's not BB cream)

Girl after my own heart! All I really, really, really want is both colors of the UD lipstick. Even if it were another brand, I'd still want the lipstick. But personally, I ADORE Urban Decay! Have several eyeshadow palettes, but this is the first lip product they've put out which has totally captured my imagination before I've even tried it (other than swatching in store). So if I can't manage to get my hand on BOTH those lippies, I will be one sad panda.

 

The only thing I'm mildly excited about (besides UD) is the masks. I'd kind of like to have both of them to give them a try. But if I get duplicates, I too would probably prefer the pumpkin.

 

Also, the mascara for me is just meh. Actually, make that less than meh. No interest in it. Guess I know I'm getting 2 of them. I *might* keep one, but I already have quite the stash of unused deluxe sample mascaras going on, so I could easily foresee tossing both in my trading pile.

 

I'm not sure what I want from the rest. Just a good mix and no nail polish, I suppose.

 

Without the Urban Decay, I'm about 99.99% certain this will be my least favorite bag since I signed up in April. I'm actually looking forward to next month before I even see what I'm getting this month. I didn't trade at all last month (though I still have 1 unopened product I'd like to trade). I just kind of got burnt out on the trading front. It can be a lot of work hunting down what you want and firming up the deal, all with someone you don't know and communicating only on the net. Oh well. Glam rooms should be up soon, so I guess we're both about to find out how lucky we got (or didn't get, as the case might be). Good luck to you. Fingers crossed for the both of us!!!

Also,  I just wanted to say THANKS for being so civil and welcoming and FUN! on these boards unlike their Facebook fans. Eeep I can't even read the comments there! And the weirdest thing is a lot of us use MUT under screen names whereas FB is your REAL NAME and ALL YOUR FRIENDS can read what you write. You'd think that would hold people accountable for their nasty attitudes... guess not!!

I'm going to sound all crazy too, but oh my goodness, I've never SEEN the "glamor" spelling before! LOL How funny is that! At first I thought you made a typo but then I realized it's like color vs. colour, etc. I've always seen "glamour", but isn't that so interesting! smile.gif

1) UD Lipstick (please!!!)

2) Pumpkin mask - I think my obsession for pumpkin is now well-documented.

3) Mascara - kinda hoping they send a blue one!  But I'll be happy with a waterproof mascara to try

4) That Pencil Thingy - especially if it's an eyebrow pencil, because I don't have any

5) I don't care - I really don't.  It'll probably go on my trade list.  I have enough blushes, eyeshadow pigments, and nail polishes.  Primer would be OK, and if that's a Pacifica BB cream, I already have it.  

That Pencil Thingy!!! LOL I literally laughed out loud!!! laughno.gif

post #2035 of 5251

For the record, pretty sure that's gold ink and it just doesn't photograph very metallic. I've printed many things with this exact gold color and it's nearly impossible for it to look gold in pictures.

I'm kind of like that--I enjoy getting something every 3-4 days or so and start to have withdrawal when I don't, lol! But at the same time, I could also picture someone who was out of town returning to a big pile of boxes to open, ripping them open frantically, then rolling around in satisfaction like Sheldon did on Big Bang when Amy tried to help him get over the need for closure. I have a bit of OCD, so I can relate to him sometimes. hehe.gif

Ohh and pageant float waving!  Along with ALL variations.  That would be an elective.

post #2038 of 5251

What I want first and foremost: A bag in an early wave of shipping!  Trading has been dying *way* down before I have received my bags the past couple of months, so I have had problems being able to get the stuff I want because it's usually claimed by the time I get my bag.  As for specific items:

  • Lipstick.  I'm not sure what colors they're sending out, but if they're sending out Anarchy, that's my number-one will-probably-buy-it-if-I-don't-get-it color.
  • Not-the-pumpkin-mask.  I'm getting that from LBB.
  • Blue mascara because I have five black mascaras as it is.  They're probably sending out black, though.
  • The stick blush thing!  I'm on a blush kick, and I don't have anything like it.
  • After discarding the things I specifically don't want, if I have to exclude the powder blush in order to get the stick blush, I'll go with whatever the pencil thing is, I guess.  Even if I hadn't received the Mai Tai polish last month, this one isn't my kind of color (and I took nail polish off my profile last month because they just don't seem to be interested in sending out the kinds of colors I wear, so they just need to stop sending it to me so I don't have to rehome it).  I have no need for the primer, and whatever is in the other tube is pretty much guaranteed to be too dark or warm for me because that's just the way subs work for me.

 

If I don't get the UD lipstick, I think I will be canceling again because the only reason I signed was because of the matching system, and if they don't send someone with UD, hip/edgy, vintage/retro, worldly, adventurous, and lipstick marked, it isn't working, and chances are I will be doomed to months of frustration and disappointment.  The buff concealer going to people with fair skin the first month after this system was rolled out was bad enough, but my profile is (and has been for a few months) completely aimed at getting bold color whenever that's an option.

post #2039 of 5251

I know most people aren't digging the bag, but I love it!  It is a little cheesy, but sometimes I do like cheesy stuff, hahah.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get one of the Urban Decay lippies, as I've never tried UD Lipsticks before.  Does else anyone think the golden-ish tube looks like the Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter?  I love that stuff, so I totally wouldn't mind that in my bag.  And I use the Smashbox Primer sometimes, so that would be cool as well.  The only thing I don't think I'd care for is the Nailtini ... which means, with *my* luck I'll get it! 

post #2040 of 5251

Oooh, this wishlist thing is pretty fun! Here's mine:

 

1. Lipstick

2. Facial scrub (I feel like I'd end up accidentally eating the pumpkin stuff, haha)

3. Blue mascara, just because I have no coloured ones (assuming there's a colour option)

4. and 5. Anything other than the pencil thing if it is indeed an eyebrow pencil

 

Referral item: Moondust eyeshadow

 

And in unrelated news, can I share these adorable freaking bottles of kohl I bought today?

 

 

They are Sheida brand and I got them at Trade Secrets for five dollars each, marked down from twenty each. I am very excited! I think they look like little love potions or something.
