  1. Just an update, ipsy just notified me that they accidentally sent a repeat in my April box from prior boxes and asked me whether I wanted extra 500 points or an extra sample in the next box. I think that amount of care to correct something that I probably wouldn't care too much about (I'm getting a repeat eyeshadow brush which I like anyway) states that they want to make sure their customers are satisfied. I'm sorry, but I simply can't say the same for birchbox. I'm so glad I cancelled.
  2. I'm sure I will be adding more, but to start with I have a few things that I'd love to swap for other things. (Edited to add: all are new, unused) Makeup: Be a Bombshell the one stick, Flustered, 7.3g Chella Ivory Lace Highlighter pencil, 1.4g Beauty: Ipsy J.cat Eyelashes + Eyelash glue, EL15 ModCloth Stylish Surprise Swaps: http://www.pinterest.com/lifeissurreal/modcloth-stylish-surprises/ Rocket Dog Black Booties, size 6 Neon on a Roll Dress, size small Emerald Envy Dress, size small
  3. I see that I have 15 posts now, but it's still not popping up for me. Maybe I don't have "valid posts"? I don't know exactly what that means though.

  5. Thanks guys! I appreciate the love. (Oh, and utgal - I'm from Houston too, but I went to Texas A&M...haha)
  6. Thanks! I will look for it. Can you use a typical lipstick over it or do you just do lip gloss over it. I tried doing lipstick over chapstick/balms,but they inevitably come off onto my teeth!
  7. Oh, I see. Thanks for you help. I guess I will wait. She was just great and I just wanted to leave her much deserved feedback
  8. I have the most dry, chapped lips almost year-round and can't seem to find a lip color that won't dry my lips out more. (FYI - my dry lips started after I used accutane for acne treatment over 10 years ago). Every lipstick I have tried worsens my dry lips to the point where the color seeps into my lip wrinkles (I didn't realize I started having these). I think lip gloss seems to be less drying for me, but I can't find one which will stay and look true to color. Any recommendations?
  9. I LOVE IPSY! I've used most of the things they've sent over the past 6 months. On the contrary, I HATED Birchbox. I tried them out for about 6 months before cancelling. I hated almost everything they sent. For instance, feet wipes?!?!?! Ughh..what was THAT about. My sister loves glossybox and I might consider subscribing to that. For now, though, I am in LOVE with my ipsy boxes
  10. I recently joined and lurked for a bit. I found this forum after googling subscription boxes and almost every top link suggested this forum. A little about myself - I am a Texan at heart, but for the past 7 years have been living in NYC and because of that I have a little Southern classic-style fashion interest mixed with urban-modern updates. As for makeup, I don't know much, but I'm wanting to learn so much more. I've already corresponded with a few ladies on the forum through the modcloth stylish surprise thread and swaps thread and everyone is so nice. I hope to continue finding out more and sharing ideas/thoughts/makeup and whatever else comes.
  11. Sorry to bump this thread, but I'm having the same difficulty. I can't leave feedback from someone I did a swap with. Is it because my post count is too few? The "leave feedback" option does not show up when I click on the feedback tab as mentioned above. Sorry if this is a repeat. She's been on here for awhile - I guess it's just me?

If there's anything in my swaplist (up above) you'd want please let me know and if not, I'm totally willing to buy the dress. The one I have is so nice, but a Small would be nicer so that I might be able to breathe.
  13. I like my Stylish Surprises, but I just don't LOVE them. Maybe someone else might want to give them a try. I'd love to trade for something XS/S or shoes in a true size 6.

This one is called Writer's Block Party Coat, which actually fits me pretty well! This one's a keeper. Lastly, I can't identify this one at all. I know it's a Fervour dress but I can't find it. It's kind of meh. I wish it were a few inches smaller. I have no idea how to dress this one up. I LOVE those boots! Congrats. You received great items. That myrtlewood coat is beautiful! Too bad it's not my size - I would totally offer to buy it from you. I bought that last dress last year and had to return it. It looked great on the mannequin, but not so much on me. Let me see if I can find the link for you. Edit: Here's the link to your dress. http://www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses/cute-to-the-cordial-dress
