  1. Have: Calvin Klein perfume Want: Honey mask Lulu body balm ...but I'm open to all offers!
  2. I got this as my free box, too. I only signed up for a month-by-month subscription. Sorry to all who got kind screwed. :-/
  3. Glad to know I'm not the only one. I've had the page open for three days waiting for this to go live...
  4. Looking forward to trying this sub. Just used the promo code!
  5. Looking back on it, 2014 has been kind of a bust for me so far. January -- Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Leave In Conditioner February -- Zoya polish in Dot March -- Pixi Primer April -- UD 24/7 Eyeliner
  6. Stitchfix ended up being too expensive for me. I switched to Le Tote and got my first delivery this week! Even though you "rent" the clothes in the tote, you can send them back as much as you want. (Like Netflix DVDs!) I don't really miss the fact that I'm not keeping items like I would with stitchfix.
  7. Anyone want the Demeter Jasmine? Only interested in Cailyn acid pink from this month but open to offers from other months or subs.
  8. Wow, the BaB one stick and the Pixi bronzer are two of my all time favorite ipsy products! The bronzer is definitely my HG. I got the one stick in girl crush, the shimmery light pink. I dab a little on my fingers and then tap on my cheekbones for the perfect highlight.

  11. Will have: -Mary Kay gloss -City Color highlight Want: -St. Tropez -Cailyn in any color Would prefer to do a single swap for both items but am flexible.
  12. Stitchfix tried and flopped this time. I feel like this style is much more "romantic," whereas my profile clearly reflects that I prefer a more classic/tailored style. I asked for a spring dress and anything in radiant orchid. Unfortunately, with my scoliosis, I can't wear dresses that are fitted at the waist, so I requested a straight shift style dress. Here's what I was sent. I really wanted to love everything but here are my thoughts: The dress fit nicely and I love the colors. But it was $88. For $88 I could get a better made dress that I LOVE instead of a cheap-feeling dress that I only sorta like. The scarf was $42. Lol nope. The purple skirt was AMAZING. And a great price. I tried to love it. I really wanted to. But it accentuated everything I don't like about my body. I just looked way rounder than I am. I'm not tiny, but I'm fit... and the skirt made me look 20 lbs heavier. Sigh. So sad to send this back. Beautiful color. It's a deep eggplant and would've looked amazing with the orchid blouse. The white blouse would be stained in an hour. Let's just be honest. I didn't love the way it fit me either. Pretty embroidered details though. I kept the orchid tab-sleeved blouse. I'll always keep this style. It's so effortless. The color is stunning in person and will be perfect for spring. This was my fourth fix. I'm not sure if I'll continue with stitchfix. It's fun but the last couple ones have been totally off mark. I wish they would pay closer attention to my Pinterest. Or maybe they do and I'm just too picky. Also, as a grad student, $42 scarves and $88 simple dresses are not in my best interest. I'll gladly pay those prices for quality in styles I love but not for these items.
  13. Oops. That's what I get for browsing MUT after beer tasting!!
  14. You don't necessarily rent anything, because you can't wear stuff and return it. But you can buy and return. So if you like 2 of the 5 items they send you, they'll charge you for those two and you'll send three back. Your $20 styling fee is applied towards whatever you keep. If you don't keep anything, you lose the $20. If you keep it all, you get a discount.
  15. Just got a pre-survey about cars and Rimmel. Whaaaaaat. It asked me what kind of car I drive and how often I drive. Then it asked about lip products and Rimmel products. We'll see! I'm very curious. I love me some lip products so bring 'em on, Influenster! Did anyone else get this? What do you all think?
