  1. I may have gotten a sweet little tube in the mail today. So I decided to test it out! Jeffree Star is a freaking genius for this formula.
  2. I feel like everyone from BB is gonna smell the same for a few weeks. I've got the Juliette Has a Gun Not A Perfume sample before, still have a bunch since I don't wear perfume often. It's really high quality and lasts for freaking ages. I legit woke up the next morning and could still smell it before my shower. I'm excited to be getting their Anyway fragrance now . Especially since people call it things like 'nonchalance in a bottle'. Not sure how I feel about it having some musk undertones and unisex bits though. Guess we'll see. Hurry up BB!!
  3. 7 item box on my random account this month: Acure organics lip lush - not a gloss person, but full sized item Juliette has a gun anyway pefume - 100% will enjoy this even on name alone Vasanti® BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator - has good reviews, excited to try Supergoop!® Daily Correct CC Cream ​SPF - excited to try it. second Supergoop! product Davines OI / All in One Milk - neat! Davines OI / Conditioner - fine since it's a 7 item box Davines OI / Shampoo - fine since it's a 7 item box
  4. I have: NYX Liquid Suede in Kitten Heels (new but no wrapper, got 2 kept 1) TEMPTU bronzer (lightly tried x1) Pixi by Petra full size blush (lightly tried x2) Ipsy Spring Bag in Coral I've got a bunch of other stuff from other Ipsy this year, Birchbox, BB5, Lip Monthly, ELF, Ulta, etc in my trade list too. Interested in: NoTS 28 Remedy Toner (have and would love more) OFRA Green Go Eyeliner Aphrodite Skin Care Eye Cream ColourPop Highlighter Bye Bye Under Eye (in Light only, even that might be too dark for me but I want to try) Make Up For Ever Hydrating Primer ZAPZYT Evologie Ipsy Spring Bag in Mint or Blue Ipsy December 2015 bag or try me. I probably won't be into many hair care items but I'd consider eSalon, another one I have and love.
  5. If you've still got the Korean box... I'd LOVE more of the RE:P mask. Just updated my tradelist if there's anything that interests you. I don't have either of those shades of the trestique.
  6. Haha I didn't think to do a cat. I did one with the way I spell my name and have since I was like 7 (Sarra) and one legally with my middle name included (Sarah Carol) so I can tell my subscriptions apart. I hope you get your box. That would be so disappointing!
  7. I've seen a couple reviews now on seller websites that people with combination or oily skin used it and it helped with the good oil production and actually reduced the bad oils in the skin. I've got the same worry, but I did get a Burt's Bees Cleansing Oil for my oily skin and that actually didn't cause any problems. So I'm hoping it's usable!
  8. Just so you know (so you're not disappointed), the eyeliner can actually come in Jac B. Bronze, or Scott B. Bordeaux, it just shows the one shade by default, the nail polish also can come in either "Hutch - my go-to red" or "Sundays - my off duty nude". I wish they'd list them separately or show both colors in the main preview photo in the glam room. I'm super hoping for the Bronze in this bag since I already have Bordeaux.
  9. I'd be so bummed!! I don't want a lifestyle box. I like my Birchbox exactly how it is. I don't want a lifestyle box either. If I did, I'd subscribe to one. Maybe they could offer that instead of the curated but I really hope they just keep adding new products and such to their current monthly box program.
  10. My latest mystery pack included the Quidad Ultra-Nourishing Cleansing Oil - Curl Refining (mini bottle worth about $7.64), and Kerastaste Bain Force Architecture Cleanse (a foil worth about $1.52). Total Value: $9.16 Not quite the $10 that it sells for, but things I'll use and get lots of uses out of the one. And since I got it in an order where I got the My Favorite Night Balm and a 3 month gift card for $22.50... I'm okay with it. Still came out on top.
  11. I don't think I have the self discipline for that! And I'd be scared to hope for the best and get disappointed. I like being able to research how I feel about a product because it usually improves my excitement for something I'd otherwise be like 'why'd you send me this?'. Just watch your box will beat everyone's because you stayed spoiler free
  12. I subscribe to Ipsy, Birchbox, Lip Monthly, Beauty Box 5, BeautyCon, and Walmart, as well as receiving Target boxes from time to time.

  13. I wish they would let you pick the one item. I feel like a lot more people would be satisfied with their bag if they got the opportunity to choose between one of those 5. Or since they do the little questionnaire things for points could we rank our excitement about each of the original previews and then they could at least give something in the top 3? If I have one perfect hit in my bag I really don't care if the rest is stuff I give as gifts or trade.
  14. Up For Swap: Color Club in That's My Jam (red)Possibly Up For Swap: ARROW BOOST Color Enhancing Lip Balm (I got 2, I may not want both) TOCCA Eau de Parfum, Emelia Whish Revitalizing Cleansing Oil (just got a new skincare set, can go if interested) Interested In (Specifics): Supergoop eye cream thingie (technical term ) Malin+Goetz Clarifying Clay Mask RE:P Calming Herb Mask (my skin is besties with this now) Benefit They're Real (primer or mascara, i lovesss it) Number 4 Fluoro 5 Elixer Restore & Repair Oil (also loving and wouldn't mind more) Eyeko FAT Liquid Liner (totally love this enough for another spare) There's probably more, but the listing for things sampled THIS month isn't live yet :-/ Try me!! Interested In (General Product Type): most masks in general acne products eyeliners dark/odd colored lipsticks/stains mascaras Also have stuff from my Ipsy bag that could be mixed and matched in.
  15. Both boxes of mine went live yesterday (My sample choices are in the gold boxes). I'm really hoping for the Cupid one from Not Soap, Radio, but all of them sound so funny I can't wait to try one. The only thing that's a disappointment across either box was the red nail polish, but who are we kidding, it's Valentine's Day. I saw this coming. I'd love it except I already have 2 red polishes. Box #1: Not Soap, Radio - Body Wash Whish Revitalizing Cleansing Oil Obliphica Professional Seaberry Serum - Medium to Course Color Club - That's My Jam ARROW BOOST Color Enhancin Lip Balm (sample choice) Box #2: 12 Benefits Instant Healthy Hair Treatment Hey Honey Take It Off Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask (sample choice) TOCCA Eau de Parfum, Emelia COOLA Face SPF 30 Unscented Matte Tint ARROW BOOST Color Enhancing Lip Balm Totally slayed my Ipsy bags this month; again.
  16. Up For Swap: VINTAGE by Jessica Liebeskind Sparkling Lip Gloss in Pink Sequin Chella Lipstick Pencil in Passionate Pink Possibly Up For Swap: Mr. Write (Now) -- if it's in Scott I'll happily swap unswatched, I may keep Jac. tre'stiQue Baby Blush Stick in Bora Bora Coral (I'd totally swap for one of my most-wanted) Promise Organic Ultra Moisturizing Argan Creme Face Lotion (I just got a new skincare kit... I'm telling myself I don't really need this if someone's interested) Most Wanted: IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer Trust Fund Nail Polish in I'm Kind of a Big Deal Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion BFF: Best Face Forever Daily Exfoliating Face Wash Also Interested In: Josie Maran Cosmetics Argan Enlightenment Illuminizing Wand Bathhouse Soapery & Caldarium Cioccolato Foaming Body Scrub
  17. Bag #1: Naked Cosmetics Mica Pigment (i'll use either shade) Luxie Beauty Flat Definer Brush 221 (could use another, cool) Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil (Smashbox, yes!, and one review says ok for oily skin...) Promise Organic Ultra Moisturizing Argan Creme Face Lotion (nothing Wrong with this...) Chella Lipstick Pencil in Passionate Pink (haven't had luck with lipstick pencils) So everything in this is something I'm OK with trying... But I was kind of hoping for the undereye concealer or the Trust Fund polish (I normally hate pink - isn't this month so great for me? - but that was pretty!) Bag #2 (new subscription) theBalm cosmetics Mr. Write (Now) (please be in Jac, I have Scott) Luxie Beauty Small Tapered Blending Eye Brush (no dupes, cool!) VINTAGE by Jessica Liebeskind Sparkling Lip Gloss in Pink Sequin (just because I feel 5, doesn't mean I want to look 12) tre'stiQue Baby Blush Stick in Bora Bora Coral (cool-ish? I have 2 blushes now but this is a different color at least...) My Amazing Hair Secrets My Amazing Leave In Secret (this could be neat) If the liner is in Jac, I'll be good with it. I don't mind the brush, I guess a blush is cool but I've already got two blush items right now, at least this is coral so kinda different. I don't do lip glosses though. Matte or dewy at the most, and that's if I'm wearing lip color at all. My Ideal Bag would have been: Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer OR Trust Fund Polish Dr. Brandt PoreDermabrasion BFF: Best Face Forever Exfoliating Daily Face Wash Luxie Beauty (either brush) Curology Treatment for Acne & Anti-Aging Any tips from the Ipsters that have been around a while to make this more plausible?? I want to love Ipsy but Birchbox is slaying them for me very very consistently.
  18. I'm almost (almost) hoping the March sample choices aren't great because I did a gift subscription for myself back to my first account with points and i want to activate my welcome box on a month I won't feel like I'm missing out. Even if the curated box is great but there's only one sample choice I'm interested in... because then I can just get the curated on the side and have way too damn many.
  19. I didn't get as much of a discount as I could have, but this time around I used my first 100 points on my self-gifted (2nd) account, paired with my $10 off $35 first box, to get: I know I'll get the 'welcome' box whenever I activate this, so I'm going to try to hold off for a month that I'm not super excited about sample choice. I've heard good things about the lip balm though and I'm excited for another Mystery Pack!!
  20. I'm basically having the exact same problems with wanting full coverage matte for ghost white acne stressed skin. I just got Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3in1 in Ivory, which is pretty light with not so orangey undertones and I've been able to wear it on its own without harsh lines where it ends, and when it's mixed with Manic Panic in Virgin, about a half and half to 1part/2part ratio, it comes out gorgeous for me. It's also super nice that it has a primer and concealer built in, though over really red acne I still do use my normal concealer or layer it with the beauty blender. Setting it with a transleucent powder I've been able to wear it all day and no changes or shifts for at least 12 hours.
  21. You don't have to wait for the email technically, it'll still be a day later for your non ace, but mine was up around 2 hours before I got the emails. I always just refer the same email account to get the early access. Doesn't hurt anything. Not like they have to sign up.
  22. I reserved the lip balm on one account and Hey Honey on the other. Primarily because it's already become an amusing joke with the boyfriend.
