Ipsy Glam Bag: January 2014 (Spoilers/Discussion!) - Page 3

post #61 of 2888

Here is another vote for a Lush sub.  I think I will contact them about it.  We all should!!

post #62 of 2888

I agree with a no makeup bag. Maybe alternate months.  I really loved the Josie Maran oil and the Pacifica Blood Orange hand lotion. I used the oil for everything and I hate oil lol. I just finished the hand lotion.   I dislike  nail polish  but maybe do a nail bag, a file,  polish removal pads,hand lotion etc.  I do like the hair products . I just  think they need a variety . I have changed my quiz many times and still get  odd colors.  I have to work hard to make Ipsy  work but I do think  its worth it right now.

I would love the occasional makeup-free bag, too! But the one time they did it, people had fits. "I SUB TO IPSY FOR MAKEUP, WHERE'S THE MAKEUP??"

 

Obviously I am a makeup addict, but there are so many other things out there to try!

If we get sneak peeks next week the first one should be on Monday and if it holds true we'll get one on Tuesday. I doubt we'll get on Wednesday unless they have one scheduled. If we don't see the first sneak peek on Monday then it's possible we won't see one until the 30th.

Don't they usually start the 1st? This is only my 4th month so I've never been through the holidays with Ipsy before. Monday would be awesome!!

post #67 of 2888

They used to always do the sneak peeks starting on the first. Then for a while, they were doing them earlier. It does seem like they are going more toward waiting until the 1st, again.

 

I actually think I prefer waiting until the 1st...makes the wait between the last sneak peek and shipping feel a bit shorter...

post #68 of 2888

Yay, new thread!

 

I'd love to see Ipsy following (or being ahead) some of the new trends this year... For example, Pantone recently came out with their new "color of the year", radiant orchid. I'd love it if this could translate to us getting a good berry blush or fuschia/plummy/berry/even violet lipsticks! Or heck give me a purple blush while you're at it, I think $10 is about what I can afford to try out new trends and see if they work for me.

 

So yeah. More risks, Ipsy. I can take it. I'm tired of getting 50 shades of brown shadow to go along with my 30 red lipsticks. I want color! Bold and colorful lipsticks! Bold and colorful mascara! Shiny stuff! Actually have your stylists study the forthcoming trends and integrate them into your subscription instead of dumping whatever thing Be a Bombshell and Nailtini give you into your bags and calling it a "look".

I think the main issue is that they basically just take what they're given from the companies. Most of the time, companies give their overstock, or their no-so-well selling shades of something (which is what I think happened with the the NYX lipsticks this month) So we never really get things that are ahead of trend. There are some exceptions, obviously, but I don't think that we'll be getting something exciting and on-trend any time soon. However, suggested that companies include shades other than brown and red would be pretty awesome of them, lol :)

post #70 of 2888

well, I decided to cancel my second bag with them.  I have the feeling that the first bag is always going to be fantastic (which is was) and then...meh.

 

I got basically the same items in my 2nd bag as I did in the first and my quiz, likes, even age were different!! lol

post #71 of 2888

Wishlist/Ideas:

- a sugar face scrub, like the Andalou Naturals Lemon Sugar one

- a tinted lip balm, maybe a more natural brand

- something from Yes to

- a yummy/food scented hand cream

- lip scrub (still hoping for this ^_~)

- a nice non-red lip gloss, I loved the Pink Juice Beauty I got before

- a glitter top coat from a 3-free (or 5-free or whatnot) brand

- a blush in plum or peach (not red or pink)

- a highlighter

- a hair mask (a natural one would be great)

- natural skin care

- a not-super-bright berry lip color, either some more sheer or medium to dark toned

Obviously not all of these, but some of them would be nice ^_^

 

January last year was my first bag and I LOVED the actual bag. It was my favorite bag until December.

post #72 of 2888

updates!

post #73 of 2888

I'd love to see more brands, especially lesser known or indie ones.

Skincare items would be great. I'd be happy with moisturizers, masks, cleansers, anything really.

Non-red items would be great. Let's see some Pantone aimed shades!

I'd love more nail polish, but that's because I'm an addict.

post #77 of 2888

I'm super excited for january, december was a dud for me =/ Stuff I already have and dont need and nothing new and exciting...

post #78 of 2888
I just canceled Ipsy a couple of weeks ago and I am already thinking about coming back. I am not sure if I actually am regretting my decision or if I'm just going through withdrawals. Probably the latter. I have to stay strong!

I really would not like a no-makeup bag. I subscribed to Ipsy instead of something like BirchBox specifically because of the makeup-heavy aspect. I don't mind one or two non-makeup items, but the idea of a bag with none at all really turns me off.

Same here. I tried many different samples of skincare back when I subbed to both Birchbox and Test Tube and something in the mix messed with my face and caused breakouts. It took me months for it to get back to normal! Now I steer away from skin product samples...

Me too, This will be my 12th bag and my one year with them, but I am still loving all the makeup. I completely understand where everyone else is coming from and even 3 non-makeup products would be fine with me but I would still want some sort of makeup seeing it is a makeup subscription. (BUT NOT RED FOR CHRIST SAKES IPSY HEAR ME YELL NOT RED. I LOVED red until I started ipsy and they made me hate it, WHY IPSY WHY!?) :icon_redfAnyways.....

I just got into makeup hardcore earlier this year so my stash is still growing despite my many large hauls at Sephora and MAC (I go full metal when I like something) but I'm still trying out new products and things so if they want to send me all the makeup I am still down and in the honeymoon phase with ipsy.

OMG I am the same! And recently I got into the indie mineral make up frenzy so I've been getting over 150 loose eyeshadows so far...I know it is crazy but I cannot stop and I still want more...damn all these pigmented loose shadows! I can't go back to pressed shadows and Urban Decay can no longer impress me.

With that being said, I hope ipsy can send out INDIE company loose eyeshadows (not MICA Beauty please)

I have been drooling over the madd style cosmetics loose pigments....They have A Doctor Who collection and I am just drooling over it. As well as The Clockwork Orange collection. And Geekchic because they also have a Doctor Who and A Supernatural Collection. If they had a Sherlock collection I'd break my no- buy and buy EVERYTHING!

Fandoms get me every time, I will literally buy it for a name they put on it.

Welcome! I'm a long time lurker, new commenter too.

 

I second this request. I would absolutely love some kind of scrub and/or makeup spray. I'm also in agreeance with everyone that said less makeup and more variety!

I feel that the reason for the colors they choose is due to appealing to a broad base of customers.

I don't think that's always the case. Frosty beige, brown, and bright frosty orange are NOT going to appeal to many. I am pretty sure NYX just sent out some of their least popular colors to clear out some inventory in December...and I think it's the brand that decides what to send. Some send out those with a broad appeal but some take the approach that NYX did.

I also really loved the bag (I think it's still one of the biggest bags we've gotten, plain navy on the outside, inside lined with navy fabric with white stars).  And the bag really helped me out of a post-holiday slump.  Holidays were over, kids were back in school, extended family had left, it was finally starting to get super-cold down here... and BAM!  Package of awesomeness, especially the tropical-scented lotion.  Not everyone was pleased (there was a huge "NO MAKEUP!!??" backlash on FB), but it made me happy!

My first bag and one of the very best. I love the bag itself. I now regularly use Pacifica and Argan oil (tho not Josie Maran) and Nailtini. I got the concealer brush I use for color tattoo eye shadow or UD moon dust  (is that what they're called? I forget-- the sparkly ones!) I somehow either lost or traded my Nailtini Bloody Mary so I'm looking for that. :( It's a gorgeous red.

P.S. I think we will likely get January sneak peeks on Jan 2 because the 31st Dec and Jan 1st are holidays. They may even have Dec 30th Monday off, too at the offices. 11dh.gif what do ya'll think?
