Maybe it's a black & white theme. Pasty white lips, anyone? Goth black nailpolish? A perfume in the scent of "newsprint?" biggrin.gif

Don't forget bombshell which would refer to vintage beauty as well.

Funny thing is, I would actually like that perfume! I love the smell of newspapers. Haha. So weird!

I hated the way it looked on my top lashes but it actually looks great on my bottom lashes

Here's hoping this mascara is better than the Pixi Beauty,....which was an ultimate bust for me! I don't really mind several mascaras through the months since I'm always searching for a new awesome one smile.gif

post #1236 of 3584

I can never have enough eyeshadows and mascara I wear mascara everyday even if I'm just sitting around the house

post #1237 of 3584
I didn't like the pixie at all either... But I think part of my issue was that the brush was crap. Lol. This looks better. Fingers crossed!

Agreed. Doesn't this month make it at least the 5th one they've sent out since November-ish? What's Your Type, POP Beauty, Benefit They're Real, Pixi, and this one? I've been trying to restrain from opening too many at once so I haven't tried the Pixi one yet and this will just add to my stash as well. The next sneak peaks better be amazing.

I have to wonder if they are sending mascara again because so many people hated or had problems with the Pixi mascara. I saw tons of posts about defective tubes, bad reactions, and the formula being incompatible with people. Maybe Ipsy is trying to make up for what many Ipsters consider a dud product?

post #1240 of 3584
I'm really laughing at the price 19.99 and her only other product is a piece of cardboard. I don't think she should quit her day job tongue.giftongue.gif.
post #1241 of 3584

I love mascara almost too much sometimes, but there are just SO MANY other things they could have sent out!

I was wondering if that was the case. That or possibly they had an "or" item again this month and with all the backlash they decided for this month to send something a bit less exciting but more safe?

post #1243 of 3584

you  guys  are awesome lol ,,that looks  like  it, its  like 19.99

post #1244 of 3584

I'm pretty happy that I downsized to 1 bag in time for this month.  These first 2 sneak peaks are not that exciting to me and I definitely don't want multiples of either of them.  I think that the more I find awesome products I love, the more random things in sub boxes seem less appealing to me.

I only tried the Pixi once, I liked it fine. I'm obsessed with Benefit's BadGal Plum, I have green eyes and even though it doesn't look purple while I'm wearing it, it makes the color pop. I don't even care for the normal BadGal but the plum is amazing (for me). I will probably use the Pixi for travel. But I think you have a point, people who don't like the Pixi can probably use it as a bottom lash mascara, like the Clinique one that's pretty great.

I am so wishing that I had done the same! I think I'm going to cancel bag 2 as soon as I have this month's bag in my hands.

post #1247 of 3584

Um, am I missing one? We've had the Nyx shadows, and this mascara.. What else was there?

This is what I was thinking, too. I foresee liquid black eyeliner, red lipliner, and brow pencils in our future.

I will probably be joining you in dropping some subscriptions (hopefully)...

post #1250 of 3584

I would normally be pretty happy to get mascara, but as I will be throwing a lash bash I think I'll be on mascara overload this month. Regardless, no big deal.

Thanks for the suggestion! I'll have to check those out.

See, I think with all the fit throwing when something "exciting" is sent out DOES mean they will be less likely to send those things in the future. Which makes me sad. I'd rather miss out on something like a UD lipstick and know that there's a chance I will get the exciting item next time than have that chance replaced by boring items of which they can obtain enough for all bags. Sigh.

I'm sure we'll get more exciting stuff soon - I'm just wondering if for the month immediately following the August fiasco (shipping, UD vs Noya) they wanted to make sure everyone at least felt as though they got fair and equal values, if not necessarily REALLY AWESOME STUFF.

 

This is all just conjecture on my part, mind you.

I think Fiend is my favorite so far. Yep, funny to say my favorite lipstick of the moment is "Fiend!"

I SOOOOO agree. I am definitely not a mascara person. This is almost certainly getting tossed in my trade box unless absolutely everyone on here agrees it performs miracles, haha. Anyway, I'm now hoping this bag will include at least 1 exciting product. So far, assuming I get a good color or a tradeable color, NYX is going to be it for me and NYX (while a good brand) isn't really exciting. Ipsy, why you want to make me have a sad September?! icon_cry.gif Here, have a flower flowers.gif and be nice to me from now on, mmkay???

The actual bag could be pretty cool looking if it went with 'vintage beauty'. Since I'm new and don't have tons of the bags laying around, I'm kind of excited for the bag itself lol. I hope it's cute.

I would think that they have the "line up" for the bags at least a couple of months in advance. It would be hard to make up for a product in August by adding something to the September bag. But maybe not?

I, too, am excited about the mascara. I'm looking for a new one, that isn't as expensive as the ones I usually buy, with close results. Bring on the mascara!

post #1260 of 3584

I'm actually also happy with getting a mascara, though I'm sure it's annoying for those of you who have collected a stockpile at this point. I've been dragging my feet on buying one since I use mascara so rarely, so this will be good. I don't ask much of mascara, just that it doesn't end up giving me raccoon eyes. My lashes are thick enough that any shadow fallout is almost entirely caught on them, so for evening makeup it's either I try to wipe down excess from my lashes and risk undoing the eye makeup or just coat them with a black layer of mascara.
