Did you apply for the Ipsy and Benefit LashBash party? Which Stage did you enter at? Have you heard if you will get a kit? What are you doing at your party?

The website says they will announce who gets a kit on the 27th :)

I really hope that I get chosen to host a party. I was checking out some other picture entries on Instagram that had absolutely nothing to do with benefit, ipsy or eyelashes at all. So I really hope that they actually go through the entries and don't just choose winners at random(though they probably won't worth the amount of entries). It makes me upset when people go to such hard work to make a good entry but aren't chosen because there is an influx of nonsensical entries.

From the Terms & conditions of the contest:

 

4. JUDGING: The following factors will be used to judge each entry by Sponsors’ representatives:
1st Round: 20% originality, 50% enthusiasm, 10% creativity, and 20% previous and current interaction with the ipsy brand (“First Round Judging Criteria”). Judging will begin on August 21, 2013 at 9:00 AM PT. Sponsors’ representatives will score each First Round Entry based on the First Round Judging Criteria. The nine hundred eighty (980) entries that receive the highest scores will win. Entrants are subject to verification that they are qualified participants as defined by these rules. 

 

 

I am not entirely sure what enthusiasm means in this case, but it would appear that they are doing more than a random selection of the photos.

Interaction with the Ipsy brand? My fingers are crossed. Looks like the majority of entrants posted selfies of themselves. The girl that did the pink Ipsy/Benefit themed nails will probably be picked. I just took a pic of my Benefit collection surrounded by streamers, candy, balloons, and a lit champagne candle. We'll see......... Good luck!

Good luck to all of you! I really hope they dont pick randomly cause I know some ladies are actually trying their best to win! I hope one of us MUT ladies win so we can see pictures!

I also took a picture of all of my benefit goodies with the background made out of a few of their makeup bags and I made a pretty catchy little saying. "I love Benefit with all of my heart, I've got blushes and stains, lipgloss galore, foundation, primer, gimme some more because I'll be the most fabulous host for sure."

Haha, that is great! I hope you get picked, since you definitely put thought into it.

I was lazy and pulled the "i know a ton of celebrities who like makeup" card. but it's not really creative or original, so whomp whomp. I tried to position it that I wanted to host an instagram party and give the samples away on my instagram page :P so I guess thats a wee bit original :P

post #10 of 328
I just got an email that I was picked to host a party! Totally not expecting that, I'm so excited smile.gif
post #11 of 328
Call me bitter but I wasn't chosen, I saw a bunch of girls on Instagram saying that they won and most of their entry pictures are just selfies. Not very original, enthusiastic or creative to me... Oh well. This is why I never enter contests.

I was selected to host a party too! OMG! I'm so excited! 

post #15 of 328
I was selected as well! So excited. I basically told them my life, that I'm a stay at home mom as are most of my friends and if they're not stay at home moms they work, go to school and parent and I'd like to throw a party for us all to relax. Our kids can play together and we can all play with makeup and have a good time. I guess they liked it cause I'm in!!!! I'm so happy I never win anything!
post #16 of 328

post #17 of 328

Holy Batgirl, me too!!  Right here in Gothem City (NYC).

 

Like Katie Danielle it was totally unexpected!!  I might have a scheduling conflict for Sept 21st and be in the middle of a training program in DC...  I will figure out another day to have the party or another way to have it on the 21st.

Somehow at least 9 gals will be introduced to REAL lashes!!  I'm going to have to break out my private stock of REAL mascara today and wear it in celebration!  "Beauty keep!  A round of mascaras for everyone!!"

Haha, as you can probably tell by my name, I live in pittsburgh, pa. The most recent batman movie was filmed here, it was awesome to see. Just had to throw that out there since you referenced batman :p

post #20 of 328

I am so surprised I was picked :D With my location, I'm usually the last to win anything but I got this <3 I don't use instagram, and just put a sentence for the entry but I guess they liked it. Whoever else won can you guys post when your kits get sent out? They said they should send us another email when it does not sure if that includes tracking info. Congrats to the rest of you who did as well!!

post #21 of 328

I'm in too!  So flippin' excited!  Did anyone watch the Jessica Harlow video where she shows the hostess & gift bags?  I've been lusting after Hervana for months!

 

(She starts talking about the Lash Bash at 3:50.  Does anyone else hate that background music like I do?)

 

post #22 of 328
I'm so excited for you girls that got picked!!!!! I meant to apply but have had a really sick baby and just didn't have the time. I love when people from our community win stuff or get chosen because wr have a really amazing group of people! ps if anyone lives in Northern California and was picked to host a lash bash and would like to invite me I'm so there lol
post #23 of 328

I'm in too! I already sent invites and have RSVPs. My sisters don't mess around when it comes to mascara :-) 

post #24 of 328

Didn't get picked. :( I had a Benefit party a little over a year ago tho. They sent a  lot of goodies!

post #25 of 328

How fun! Congrats to all the LashBash hostesses!

post #26 of 328

Congrats to those who won.  I was really hoping I would. I put a lot of thought into my entry. Meh oh well. Maybe next time.

post #27 of 328

I was selected to host a party too! I'm so excited!  I didn't think I would get picked. I did put a lot of thought into what I wrote and I hoped to be picked but I just didn't expect it.

I am sorry you didn't get picked (that goes for everybody else who entered and didn't get picked) I do hope that you all get picked next time around.

Based on what I could find in the video posted above and in this video 

<iframe width="420" height="315" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/ytQ5UmAsGhA" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

 

I'm guessing this is what is included in the lash bash.

 

Hostess Gift - In a makeup bag, all full size products:

Hervana Blush Retail $28

Peek a bright eyes Illuminating Kit Retail $32

2 creaseless shadows Retail $20 each

They're Real Mascara Retail $23

*Gimme Brow Retail $22 (The Beauty splurge video shows this, but the one posted above doesn't. So let's see if it's included)

 

So total estimated retail value: $123 - $145

 

Samples for guests:

They're Real

Sugarbomb lipgloss

Benetint

 

This should be fun! I have a couple of Benefit products that I swear by and a several I want to try, so I am super excited for this! I use their It's Potent eye cream every day and that stuff is amazing. Combine that with They're Real for every day lashes and Watt's Up for a highlighter. I have been using their 15 hr Primer that I received a sample of and the Benefit girl showed me exactly how to use it and I have had amazing success with it. I know it's been a hit or miss item for everyone, but I love it. Definitely excited for Sept 21st now! 

post #30 of 328

Woo, they liked my instagram/twittter hosted party idea I guess :)) I have 2300 IG followers, and there are quite a few who like me for my actual content and not just the times I post my pictures of Justin's cat :P

 

 

 

HERVANA! the only current (well now Rockateur too) Benefit boxed powder I don't have! This is going to be fun, fun, fun!
