YES!  Demeter!  I must own everything they make!  *(im)patiently waits for her order*

And I know I'm DEFINITELY in the minority of people who don't use pink/red lip & cheek stuff. 

I love lip products, but I'd be totally fine with not getting lip products and blush for a few months.  Like pretty much every month, I'd love a great lip scrub and balm.

 

It would be great if they did another bag like January's... no makeup, but so much fantastic skincare stuff!  (Unless they have The Balm... then they have to include it!!!)

I would love a mostly skincare bag.  I'm drowning in samples and would love something I could actually use and possibly use up.  But, yeah, The Balm would be a fabulous addition.  *HINT HINT NUDGE NUDGE, IPSY!*

 

I've just gotten into Origins & would love some of their products in future bags too.  I got a sample of the Miracle Skin Transformer acne tinted skin whatever today and wouldn't mind receiving something like that in a future bag either.  I'd also like some Kate Somerville, Murad, Glam Glow, and Living Proof (especially the serum that just came out) samples.  It would be totally awesome if they included travel containers in a future bag too.

Slightly OT but do you think they'll add yet another referral gift this month? I already got the bracelet and the polish, I really want the UD moondust but I have a feeling they're done with that :(

Everyone seems to be wanting theBalm, I would love something from them! I have a few products from them, and totally wouldn't even care if I got items I already have! I have Mary Lou-manizer, my favorite, and the Put a Lid on it eyelid primer, which is GREAT, I have the Bahama Mama bronzer and love that, and I also have stainiac, which i've stated before I wasn't a huge fan of, it's a great product but I didn't purchase it for myself, it was a secret santa gift, and it's definitely not something I would buy myself. I doubt they'd send up Stainiac in August after getting Benetint last month, so i think I'm in the clear there :) I would really love if they send us Mary Lou-manizer... that stuff is my crack, I love it.

Oh, wow!  I was picturing a much darker blue.  That is bright!

I just ordered The Mary Lou -manizer tonight from Amazon. Can't wait to try it!  Coincidentally, I also ordered a blue mascara. Blue makes the whites of the eyes look brighter and whiter. :)

Wow. That's so bright! In the awesomest way possible, of course! :) That color looks so awesome with your hair color. I personally love colored mascaras. I love me some purples. They look the best with my skin tone and blue eyes. And I have yet to find one as awesomely pigmented as that one is! You have become an enabler and now I need that in Ultra Violet.

Oh, I am waiting for my Demeter order too!! What are you getting? I ordered Jasmine, Honeysuckle and Snow.

I second your suggestions...Kate Somerville, Murad, Glam Glow, and Living Proof. Those would be great too.

I like different variations so that I will be more surprised and have lots of trading options as well.

This sounds like fun, but I think it would be hard for them to get a quality sample.

I'm a little over scrubs.

Those suggestions all sound great! I'm not sure if I will ever get over scrubs, though. I love them.

I would like colored mascara. I used to have purple, blue, and green and loved them.

I would love a lip scrub. I forget to buy it, but it does make a huge difference. I brush my lips with my toothbrush, but is not as effective.

I enjoy skincare, but I wouldn't prefer to have a bag that was mostly skincare. A lot of people (although not myself) cancelled Birchbox in favor of ipsy because they wanted mostly makeup.

Does Ipsy normally do something special for the anniversary bag?

post #74 of 5251
I'm in agreement with preferring makeup in my subscription box over an all skincare box smile.gif

I cancelled Birchbox because they would send me very weird stuff, lol. I would get a granola bar, some tea, lotion, hair ties, etc. I had them for almost a year and BARELY EVER got makeup! I got mascara once, a lipgloss once, stainiac,and a tiny make eyeshadow once. 4 makeup products in 1 year of birchbox? It made me sad. So I switched to ipsy and i love it, but i wouldnt mind ONE skincare bag. I know they will always mostly do makeup. As long as they dont send me a granola bar or tea, we're good. lol

Thank you! I was rather shocked myself! I have the Maybelline ones in Royal Blue and Teal (don't remember the exact name) and they are NO WHERE near as bright or pigmented!

Just thought I'd share this juicy tidbit. The entire Coastal Scents website is 35% off right now. I'm probably going to pick up some loose pigments and brushes to make my own hyper-pigmented liners and mascaras.

I would love to see some living proof products like prime style extender. That would be good for going back to school, right? It would also be nice to see a sample of the new Urban Decay eye primer. Some cute hair ties would be nice as well.
post #81 of 5251
Birchbox just sent out little Instain blushes, and I know a few people said no more blush, but I wouldn't complain if Ipsy sent them out too. hopefully in a different color than Birchbox sent though. I would be happy with another multi use oil. something pure that can be used on face/hair/body. my skin craves moisture when it's scorching hot.

Other than that I really don't have a preference. I am open to trying whatever the Ipsy gods throw my way.

I'm still with BB, but it's mostly for the points now. I get maybe one decent box in 6.  Ipsy bags are so much better! At least for me.

I ordered Creme Brulee, Moonbeam, Salt Air, and Thunderstorm.  I contemplated getting Firefly too, but one of the reviews seemed to describe it as a toned-down Thunderstorm, so I got just Thunderstorm instead of both.  I think something like Snow might be a great addition to a mid- to late-fall bag.  I hope Demeter gets featured in other subscription boxes too.  I haven't even tried any of the scents yet, but I feel like a Pokemon trainer, with the Demeter scents as Pokemon -- gotta catch 'em all!

post #89 of 5251

Happy Birthday to all the August Girls!!!
 

My wishlist consists of

The balm: Mary Lou-manizer or there translucent powder

Benefit: any thing really :P

A textured nail polish

Philosophy: Total matteness (This seems super interesting)

Lush: Lip scrup
