LOVE the idea of a green bag:

 

  

 

 

Wish list: (I am going to even make up OR categories here...)

 

1) Duo-chrome nail polish OR a great matte color or matte top coat

2) Butter London colored mascara -(like purple/blue/etc) OR Eyeko Eyeliner in Olive green 

3) I'd like an apple scented body wash OR Say Yes To Blueberry make up wipes

4) Would love to try Lorac's "I'm so sensitive" primer OR  Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation

5) Makeup brush cleaner OR makeup brush

 

 

That last bag! Swoon! I love it. Anything with leaves makes me happy.

 

I'd also be thrilled to get your wishlist bag! Bring on the colored mascara, the Yes To Blueberry wipes, and the brush cleaner!

I don't even know what I'd want now!

I tend to look at what companies are making big marketing pushes to decide what's likely to be in the bag (ie MT was also on LBB as a gwp)

 

 

I wonder if michele phan's em makeup will end up being in the bag in some way, I'm sure its easy enough to crank out a single shadow from a palette. they did the same sort of thing with andrea's choice.

 

I hope some makeup item from limecrime, the yellow polish is so fun. I had a $50 gift code for karmaloop and they carry limecrime, so I added once in a blue mousse to make my cart $50 after getting a serious steal on some Jeffery Campbell sandals 

Shoes. (Click to show)

they have Zodiac glitters, it would be adorable to give every ipsy subscriber the sign that coordinates with their birth month...

 

actually that would be an adorable theme, instead of ipsymatch, they should have 12 variations of bags that go out based solely on your birth month. it would be super cute to have the bags with the zodiac symbols on them as well.

I just had to share this with you ladies because it INFURIATED me!!. My girlfriend received her pink envelope yesterday after waiting 11 long days. She opened it to find the product card to tell her what was supposed to be in the bag. She thought it was a joke. Her Glambag wasn't in the envelope...She emailed IPSY, but they have yet to respond. Has this ever happened to anyone else??? I am so mad because I'm the one who talked her into getting IPSY and this was supposed to be her second bag. SMH...

I would love it if someone did bags based on our zodiac signs -- because I am an Aquarian, and that would mean plenty of blues, greens, purple, and flamboyant would come my way! But it would need to be curated by someone who knows Aquarius is actually an *air* sign, not a water sign.

I would a love a subscription service with bags based around the birthstone for each month! That would be fun! They could include information about the stone and it's meaning and all the products in the bag would be based on that color.

a girl can dream. : )

1. Hair masque or treatment

2. eye cream

4. Pacifica body lotion in a nice fall smell

5. More Demeter (maybe in pumpkin pie?) -thanks to the discount, I am up to close to THIRTY of the sample splashes

6. an autumny-red lipstick

7. NOTHING PINK

8. Maximum ONE either/or item

 

Yes to all of the above especially #8. Either/or items definitely need more parity. The Libra "be fair" trait kicking in... :)

post #218 of 3584
I'm greedy for September update but haven't gotten my August bag yet!!!!
post #219 of 3584

I love all the ideas about fall scented items.  I was sad not to get the pumpkin mask in my bag.  Maybe something apple cider this time? 

My wish list:

 

Eye pencil of some kind

Hairspray

lip gloss

yummy fall scented lotion

No more DHL!

Haha! I had a pretty bad allergic reaction to that cream. I got really, really red and hot within about 3 minutes of putting it on. My husband said "go wash your cheeks off now!" As soon as I did, the redness and hot temp went away. I ended up taking it back to Target.

So not being smooth and small white bumps are part of rosacea too? I didn't know I had rosacea until I went to the doc to have some moles checked and she mentioned it casually that I had a mild case of it. Until then, I thought my cheeks were just naturally red. I also have skin that is not smooth, but I attributed that more to acne scars, and I'm sure that's part of it. But I didn't have the white bumps until just the past few months when I noticed them popping up on my nose. I hate the way it makes my nose look. I'm glad I finally got a sample of Porefessional. I'm hoping that will help smooth things out and stop the way my makeup sinks into my large pores and looks just awful. Maybe there's a lot more to rosacea than I know. :(

As it progresses and gets worse, yes the bumps and blood vessels and everything gets worse. I didn't know I had it for a long time. I pretty much went from teenage acne into rosacea. That's the way it feels anyway. But if I look back at pics of myself when I was 18, 19, my skin actually looked good and I didn't really have any acne scarring. It looks like I do now but it's part of the rosacea. The white bumps suck! I get them mostly on my cheeks. Ever morning I go pop them all (at least 50, sometimes more. The next morning they are back. I really need to finally go to the dermatologist and do something, but I know a lot of the treatments I won't be able to do because I'm breastfeeding and trying to get pregnant again. Someday when I'm done having this last baby I wanted to have and I'm no longer breastfeeding, I would like to get aggressive about treatment so it doesn't get worse because I've seen some truly horrifying pictures.

haha, it really does smell like baby food! More like plain canned pumpkin, I suppose. I had a sample of a pumpkin enzyme mask from Naturopathica, and that one definitely smelled like pumpkin pie. I wanted to eat my face!

This is off topic but I know most of you on here are big time animal lovers. I'll post this on the cute pets thread too. I have a heart breaking incident that happened today and I know I can count on you for your prayers and positive thoughts/vibes for this fur baby (he didn't pass away but is very sick). My story is in the spoiler along with a couple pictures of the doggie. If you have a soft heart I recommend not looking at the pics.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I'll call him Boxer (since that's his breed). I live on a busy street across from a park. When Boxer showed up on my block yesterday he obviously looked lost so I tried to lure him with food to our yard which is fenced in, but as I would get closer he would run away. He eventually ran across the street into the park and I knew I couldn't catch up to him. My mom and a neighbor walked around the park looking for Boxer but didn't see him anywhere. I noticed it was urgent he received medical attention as you'll see in the pictures.

I called animal control to pick up Boxer, which I've done before with other lost dogs that show up that we don't recognize as belonging to anyone in the neighborhood. I have a serious soft spot for any animal especially one that is hurting. So I hoped and prayed all afternoon/last night/this morning that Boxer was found and safe.

Around noon today I hear the dogs in the back yard barking like crazy so I look out the front window to find out whats going on and I see Boxer stumbling around. I felt so relieved he came back. He was in the next door neighbor's yard (which also has a fence) so I ran over there and closed the gate. Poor Boxer just layed himself in the dirt exhausted. I could tell he didn't have the strength to stand up anymore.

I called my mom on the phone and had her bring me a leash and an old bed sheet. We picked up Boxer and put him on the sheet then used the sheet to carry him to our yard and layed him on the soft grass. His body felt so hot. I called animal control again but they told me it might take them 3 days to send someone out to pick him up because they're really swamped. I wasn't sure what to do. He is in really bad shape. Literally skin and bones. It surprised us how heavy he was, we struggled to carry him.

I decided to call the animal hospital we take our pets to for advice. After explaining the situation they told me to feed him a little bit of cooked white rice and give him small amounts of water. They also advised me to contact the local humane society. I called there and was told to take him in since they don't do pick ups. He ate the rice and drank some water then we put him in the back of my truck on a dog bed. My mom rode in the back with Boxer and I drove.

When we got to the humane society a woman walking a dog in the parking lot noticed we were having a hard time trying to get Boxer off the truck.

She asked " Is that your dog? "

I said " We found him "

She came a little closer and yelled " That dog is in distress! Run into the office and tell them Maureen says to bring help! " Then she ran into a different office.

I ran into the main office and told the girl " I'm the one who called in about the boxer and Maureen said to bring help. " You should've seen those people move! I went back outside and four men were at my truck picking up the dog bed with Boxer laying on it so helpless. They rushed the dog into the clinic so fast I barely noticed 3 of the guys were wearing orange jumpsuits from the dept. of corrections.

Me and my mom went into the clinic along with a couple of girls that ran over from the office I had barged into.

We did some quick paperwork then a man came out to ask me questions regarding how I found him and told me Boxer was so dehydrated they couldn't get a blood sample right away because his veins were so thin. They were going to have to wait a couple of hours for the IV to plump up his veins and try it then. He also said Boxer has a microchip but it isn't registered so no information is on it. They estimated his age at 2 yrs. The man said they are going to try everything to find the owner. I told him I could put up flyers at the park I live by and he said they would take care of that. I told the girl at the counter that I was extremely concerened for Boxer and asked how I can receive updates on his status. She gave me an ID # that is assigned to him and told me to call in and ask about him. Then we got in my truck and drove home.

My heart hurts for Boxer. I really hope he gets better. I really hope they find Boxer's owner and if not I'm sure I can find someone I know to adopt him. Please send him a little prayer or send him loving thoughts to recover soon. He was so cute and gentle. I know Boxer will love you so much for it smile.gif

Here are 2 pictures I took of him laying in the grass:





Thank you all soo much for reading this and just know the love and kindness you send out will be received with Boxer's open heart!

Please keep us updated on his status. I can't even begin to imagine what this poor dog went through on the last few days in the AZ heat. I hope he gets better soon, he will be in my prayers. You are such a good person.

They also advised me to contact the local humane society. I called there and was told to take him in since they don't do pick ups. He ate the rice and drank some water then we put him in the back of my truck on a dog bed. My mom rode in the back with Boxer and I drove.

When we got to the humane society a woman walking a dog in the parking lot noticed we were having a hard time trying to get Boxer off the truck.

She asked " Is that your dog? "

I said " We found him "

She came a little closer and yelled " That dog is in distress! Run into the office and tell them Maureen says to bring help! " Then she ran into a different office.

I ran into the main office and told the girl " I'm the one who called in about the boxer and Maureen said to bring help. " You should've seen those people move! I went back outside and four men were at my truck picking up the dog bed with Boxer laying on it so helpless. They rushed the dog into the clinic so fast I barely noticed 3 of the guys were wearing orange jumpsuits from the dept. of corrections.

Me and my mom went into the clinic along with a couple of girls that ran over from the office I had barged into.

We did some quick paperwork then a man came out to ask me questions regarding how I found him and told me Boxer was so dehydrated they couldn't get a blood sample right away because his veins were so thin. They were going to have to wait a couple of hours for the IV to plump up his veins and try it then. He also said Boxer has a microchip but it isn't registered so no information is on it. They estimated his age at 2 yrs. The man said they are going to try everything to find the owner. I told him I could put up flyers at the park I live by and he said they would take care of that. I told the girl at the counter that I was extremely concerened for Boxer and asked how I can receive updates on his status. She gave me an ID # that is assigned to him and told me to call in and ask about him. Then we got in my truck and drove home.

My heart hurts for Boxer. I really hope he gets better. I really hope they find Boxer's owner and if not I'm sure I can find someone I know to adopt him. Please send him a little prayer or send him loving thoughts to recover soon. He was so cute and gentle. I know Boxer will love you so much for it smile.gif

Here are 2 pictures I took of him laying in the grass:





Thank you all soo much for reading this and just know the love and kindness you send out will be received with Boxer's open heart!

Thank you so much for sharing! As a dog lover and a boxer owner, this is so painful to read. I hope he recovers and someone adopts him! If I was anywhere near AZ, he'd come live with me in a heartbeat.

 

Please let us know if you get any updates on him!

That poor, sweet baby. :'( He knew you were a kind heart and returned, knowing you'd help him when no one else would. I also would like updates.

I'm joining Amanda Stan in the standing ovation. Thank you for being so self-less (and your mother, too!).

Poor thing! He's near starvation! Hope he pulls through and finds a forever home.

I'll call him Boxer (since that's his breed). I live on a busy street across from a park. When Boxer showed up on my block yesterday he obviously looked lost so I tried to lure him with food to our yard which is fenced in, but as I would get closer he would run away. He eventually ran across the street into the park and I knew I couldn't catch up to him. My mom and a neighbor walked around the park looking for Boxer but didn't see him anywhere. I noticed it was urgent he received medical attention as you'll see in the pictures.

I called animal control to pick up Boxer, which I've done before with other lost dogs that show up that we don't recognize as belonging to anyone in the neighborhood. I have a serious soft spot for any animal especially one that is hurting. So I hoped and prayed all afternoon/last night/this morning that Boxer was found and safe.

Around noon today I hear the dogs in the back yard barking like crazy so I look out the front window to find out whats going on and I see Boxer stumbling around. I felt so relieved he came back. He was in the next door neighbor's yard (which also has a fence) so I ran over there and closed the gate. Poor Boxer just layed himself in the dirt exhausted. I could tell he didn't have the strength to stand up anymore.

I called my mom on the phone and had her bring me a leash and an old bed sheet. We picked up Boxer and put him on the sheet then used the sheet to carry him to our yard and layed him on the soft grass. His body felt so hot. I called animal control again but they told me it might take them 3 days to send someone out to pick him up because they're really swamped. I wasn't sure what to do. He is in really bad shape. Literally skin and bones. It surprised us how heavy he was, we struggled to carry him.

Thank you everyone for being so nice and understanding! I feel so much better having you all by my side and don't forget Boxer isn't the only one, send all your positive vibes to all animals and people in need. The world needs more love and sorry for sidetracking this thread. Let's get back to talking about makeup and our wishlists!

P.S. I'll definetely keep you updated on his health.

I hate that you had a reaction to this! I've been there before with different products- mostly prescriptions for topical acne treatments- stuff like Differin, Retin-A, etc tore my skin to pieces even in the weakest formulas. Anyway- I feel your pain!

I hope some makeup item from limecrime, the yellow polish is so fun. I had a $50 gift code for karmaloop and they carry limecrime, so I added once in a blue mousse to make my cart $50 after getting a serious steal on some Jeffery Campbell sandals 

Shoes. (Click to show)

they have Zodiac glitters, it would be adorable to give every ipsy subscriber the sign that coordinates with their birth month...

 

actually that would be an adorable theme, instead of ipsymatch, they should have 12 variations of bags that go out based solely on your birth month. it would be super cute to have the bags with the zodiac symbols on them as well.

I would LOVE this! An astrological themed bag would be amazing! Products and colors can all be based on the traits of your particular sign. And it could have one of those little monthly horoscope scroll type things like they have a gas stations!

God bless you. I would have done the same thing. I can't see an animal (or anyone for that matter) hurting and not do whatever I can to help. The pictures made me teary and sick to my stomach at the same time. I just hope that somewhere he has a family who loves him and are looking for him, and if not, I hope that someone with as kind a heart as you adopts him and gives him the love he needs. You are a savior.
