Ipsy Glam Bag: December 2013 discussion (SPOILERS!) - Page 5

post #121 of 2076

I am beyond excited to get my first Ipsy bag next month! I hope they really jam pack it since it's Holiday time! My question is this.... Seems like everyone gets the same stuff. :/ Why fill out the quiz to let them know what your unique style is when they send everyone the same stuff? Also, do they ever do anything special for your first bag?

THIS

 

seriously.   Total overload on these products....

I looked at starrily's website and I really want this nailpolish - it is called black hole

 

 

I bought a mini in this color.  Only 4.50 + shipping.  I wish I could have all of my nail polishes in mini's.  I never seem to finish off a color EVER.

For those times that they do the either/or products, you'd think they would use the quiz - I have found that they do not, for me at least.   I got an EM mascara and mascara was so not on my list (and that was a choice item).  At least I got eyeshadow this time!   Their quiz is a mystery to me.   

 

nothing special for your first bag.

Haha, that is the cutest idea ever for a bag! LOVE IT! @nicepenguins :clap

Always wishing for more tools and funky one of a kind items that I need to try as a new must have.

One wish so far this month... A nice blending brush please! Mine took a dive randomly and started shedding everywhere. :-( Although, I've been using the same one for over a year I think... And it was cheap.

I kinda want a bath product this month. Maybe a bath bomb or some bath salts!

post #133 of 2076

has ipsy ever really given out those types of products before (lip scrub, bath bombs)?   I am not sure they are into that.  Just my gut reaction.

 

I do sub to indie companies so that is how I get my fix for those products.  I love them, but I am not sure if that is ipsy's market.   If I am wrong, please let me know - I've only been subbing with them since June and I haven't see those types of products yet

 

personally, I am shocked about the starrliy product -in a good way - I would love an indie nailpolish.  But they just went from a etsy store to their own website, so I was just taken aback by that.

They have given us lotion and shampoos & Conditioners....so I can't see why not.  nixweiss.gif

We have gotten shampoo, lotion, face scrubs, etc. So why not?  Also what indie subs do you get? i think i need more boxes :x

because lip scrubs and bath bombs are not household names yet (at least with my friends and family)  When I speak of these things to my friends in RL, they have no idea what I am talking about - lol


Shampoo, lotion, face scrubs - those are pretty much standard items.  This is just my opinion and I could be wrong

 

 Ophelia's Apothecary - use her face book link, as her website is not very good  (https://www.facebook.com/OpheliasApothecary).  She has lip scrubs, and all sorts of wonderful items. Her november bag should be shipping out next week - it is a little late this month, due to the holidays.  You can pay by month, quarterly or 6 months.  I did the quarterly and I will resign up again.  I've written about her in my blog.  (I do the 3 months for 40.00)

 

 Fortune Cookie Soap - that is just a great box!! They only come out with a box every 3 months, but it is a lot of fun.  I just got the winter one and it is themed the Nightmare Before Christmas.  I love it - this box had a bath fizzy, the fortune cookie soap, hand sanitizer, bath melt, an exfoliating body butter, dry shampoo, a whipped body butter and a roll on perfume.  (19.99 per quarter)

 

I have so many reviews to write up - I fell behind - but you can google for it and see the products for fortune cookie soap

 

makeup - I just started subbing to Brazen Friends with Benefits.  After an initial hiccup, I really like it.  It is mineral makeup - lots of eyeshadows, lipgloss and liquid lipstick so far.  They have other products, so it will be interesting to see if they incorporate that.   They have 3 plans, a silver (10.00), a gold(15.00) and a platinum (25.00)

 

eco-emi - I LOVE this one and this one I will never cancel if they continue to do the job that they have been doing.    I have never been disappointed by eco-emi - this is a eco-friendly lifestyle box and they have great products.  They have done lip scrubs, lotions, shampoos, dry perfume (that was in their november box and I love it!!) as well as makeup &  foodie items.   They do feature a lot of indie companies and also etsy vendors (which I love).   The box presentation is also a wow.  I love their boxes.   I actually got a friend to join eco-emi and she loves it so much (most of my friends in RL are not into these things)  (15.00 monthly)

 

There are other ones out there that I am interested in, but I will have to drop some of my current ones..lol.   I think Yuzen looks really interesting and that is only a quarterly, so I may break down & get that one as well

 

sorry to go OT!!  I hope this helps :)

post #137 of 2076
Excited for the starrily polish, regardless of the color. I'd also love a cuticle cream or oil. And a yummy flavored gloss. I'm still holding out for a rollerball. I keep missing out on them!

I hope we get some The Balm and UD and a nice bag like the one we got last December that is probably my favorite Ipsy bag.

They have their own store front now.  They are still running the etsy store, but I think they will be retiring that soon..
