MyGlam is now Ipsy..

Recommended Posts

I looovee seeing all you fellow Michiganders! I'm from SW Michigan - Kalamazoo! Have you seen the YouTube video called "The Pure Michigan Statewide Singalong" (which is to the tune of Owl City's "Good Time" lol!). Just recently posted and it's AWESOME! :) I'd share the link here but I'm not sure about the protocol, though I highly recommend it.

I've been gone for almost 30 years, but I am pretty sure that Ypsilanti, MI is home to the University of Michigan and that Eastern Michigan University is in I believe Mt. Pleasant.  Now being from Lansing and having gone to Michigan State I could be wrong and they might have moved things around, but the last time I was up there that was the case.

Zadidoll I completely agree with your post about the name change. I think they should have kept myglam! If wanting to expa d keep myglam in section of box subs. But no one really sees what the major plan is so I guess I can't say much. I just think being one of the original names of box subs it's kind of sad to see it being faded out:( ipsy does seem so weird to my. Telling your friends yay my ipsy bag came today lol they may think I'm tipsy:)

nope, Mt. Pleasant is Central Michigan and Ann Arbor is UM, Ypsilanti is right next to Ann Arbor though, and that is where EMU is. I am also a State alum! :)

 No wonder I kept wanting to spell ipsy with an "e".  By the way, I am going to send some stuff out to you soon!  I just need to get to the post office.

I think the new name is starting to grow on me a bit. I've just been getting it in my head that next month I'll be getting my Ipsy Glam Bag. It does actually sound better to say than saying, "my Myglam bag". It just always felt odd saying it, IMO.

I am not to sure about this name change/upgrade thing. Michelle Phan is pretty cool but if you look at her commercial for Ipsy on youtube it is really awkward, which made me feel awkward watching it. I get the concept and I like the general idea but it sounds too much like those scams that furniture stores do all the time. You know, they say that they are going out of business or are changing management and all they do is change the name and the store front but everything is still the same. Kinda lame. I never subbed to myglam, I was a "Looker" and will be again this October when they relaunch. I don't know, tell me, what is/was so appealing about this subscription over others ladies?

They say they are now tailoring the box contents to match your beauty profile, which is something most boxes really don't do (although some do claim the same).

I've been so interested in myglam/ipsy bag since I've been seeing pictures of your bags! I have birchbox right now but contemplating to switch. Which one do you girls prefer?

I like both but if I had to choose, and put aside the fact that Birchbox has a points system that I LOVE using to get free stuff... MyGlam over Birchbox these last few bags/boxes.

I know! I do love the points system but I've been liking myglams bags better. I just can not seem to switch yet because I'm stuck and always thinking birchbox would redeem themselves! If only I can afford both :( I'll probably stick to birchbox for now...so I can get products for free.

i'm in the same exact boat as you, i never really considered leaving birchbox until their boxes got REALLY underwhelming as of the last few months and myglam/ipsy's got a lot better.

 

i definitely don't plan on leaving birchbox any time soon though since i love the points, but i also really want to check ipsy out this month. i just can't justify having two subscription services right now though, i already have a lot of makeup!

You guys... I canceled my Ipsy account the other day because I was trying to cut back on my sub boxes...

 

But then I got this email ... (see pic in spoiler)

ARRRGHHHH mascara is my #1 beauty staple!!! I already have my HG mascara, but I love trying new ones. How did they know??? And that brand is one I've always wanted to try! So... I'm back in. Haha I have no self-control!

I think it's a little random to change your company's name a year after launch, but I like the change--"MyGlam" kind of sounds a little tween/generic, but "Ipsy" is definitely more distinct.

 

I accidentally signed up for two boxes, but I'm reaallly glad I did lol, October's bag looks great :). between me and my 14-year-old sister, everything except lip glosses gets used up (she's been loving the neon nail polishes).

    • In my opinion, Tinder is more like an application for finding a partner for one night. This is completely frivolous for me. If I look for a girl for myself, then I will start browsing serious sites. You can see an approximate review in this source. When a girl talks about marriage, this gives a better chance of a long and serious relationship.
    • Greetings! A variety of t-shirts are in fashion nowadays and I am going to share the most trendy ones: Plain White Tees - If you are thinking that plain white tees are getting out of fashion then you are wrong. Either you wear tuck tees with jeans or full sleeve plain white tees with jackets. They always look cool. Graphic T-Shirts - Yes, the craze of graphic tees is increasing not only in public but also among the celebs. Even the big brands like Nike and Gucci are also offering logo tees. You can also see some unique women graphic tees here. Colorful Dye T-Shirts - On the other hand, girls are also crazy to wear Dye t-shirts. You can see the following ones in this regard. What other tees trends do you think should females must follow in this regard? I am waiting for your responses and suggestions.   
    • I think both of them are looking awesome. However, I like the grey more. I can understand how tough it is to go with a single option. I am also willing to get an awesome men graphic tee for my husband from here but it is getting tough for me to go with a single option because I like all of them. However, I shortlisted these two. What do you think which one is more good. 
    • At Spiceurbeauty, we use only the safest hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers which are semi-permanent only. The effects will fade gradually as the filler biodegrades but should last between 9 to 12 months. Excessive exercise or dehydration can contribute to minimizing the benefits of hyaluronic fillers. To maintain your fuller lips it is recommended that you come back to us on an annual basis or sooner for a smaller top up if desired and deemed suitable. The filler will biodegrade and be excreted naturally over time.
    • The Lip fillers that we use at Spiceurbeauty are manufactured with an anaesthetic, which makes the lip enhancement treatment less painful as it numbs the skin. We would not carry out lip treatments without adding anaesthesia due to client safety. If during your procedure you feel uncomfortable, tell your practitioner and ask for a break Or if you can have additional topical cream
