:( Hope you get yours soon. I guess if you have the yearly one, you can't cancel until it's over? I was considering the yearly when I first joined, but I did the monthly since I was worried that I couldn't cancel until it was over.

Thanks! I hope it comes soon. Thats the bad part that you cant cancel if you have a yearly sub. I have had an issue with every single bag and shipping since I started in November. I hate to be a pain, but I at least want to have my bag in the month its released.

Well by now everyone knows the box contents so I'm just going to post my swatch of the golden CS quad and the gel eyeliner.

I layered the shadows to make them appear bronzey and honestly I'm quite satisfied with the end result. "Who woulda thunk" that I'd ever use a yellow eyeshadow!

UGH, that looks gorgeous! I'm so mad at all of you because the golds look so lovely on you...and despite the fact that I've tried them a billion different ways, they just look awful on me. :(

That looks gorgeous! I'll have to show my daughter this pic so she can get an idea of what she could try with the eye shadow. (I signed her up for Ipsy for Christmas).

 

Is the gel eye liner in a small jar? She showed me real quick what was in her Feb. pack and asked me what this dark stuff in a jar was - I didn't have my glasses on to read it at the moment. If that's the eye liner, I will need to get her an eye liner brush.

That is the gel liner, yes.

You have beautifully shaped eyes. A cat eye must look stunning on you.

Thank you so much! If I knew this look would turn out well I would have made a step-by-step mini-tutorial, but I just didn't feel confident that these colors would work out :)

And yes, the little round jar is the gel eyeliner which is meant to be applied with a brush. Either one of these will do, but I used the one on the left.

I already have an angled eyeliner brush, but I don't have that really skinny one. That looks really handy for cat eyes. Is it necessary to have both?

Really? Every bag has had shipping issues? :( The only issue I've had was in last month's bag where one of my items was partially broken. They were kind enough to replace it, so I was happy about that.

 

I'll definitely keep that in mind if I ever wanted to get a yearly sub since I now know for sure you can't cancel until it's over. Though since they have the waitlist now, I don't think I can switch without unsubbing and risk being thrown on the waitlist...

If the angled one works for you, you don't really need the other one.

I subbed in November and got my November bag late December. I got December's bag late January and stil waiting for January and February. Every time I have contacted them they say they will send a replacement bag. So far I have not received any multiple bags so I dont know if  the error is on their part or the shipping company they use.

Ipsy is looking into other shipping companies instead of UPS MI.

Finally got to play with my Ipsy goodies. I don't have a lot of eyelid to work with, my eyes are deep set, but here ya go:

That's the gel liner, smokey gray coastal scent quad, and mascara.  I wear hard contacts, so I've never been successful putting anything on my waterline or lower lash. I envy you ladies who can! I end up with racooon eyes:)

Thanks for the info. We've never used eye liner like that before. Should be interesting for her to try.

I will have to go look for one of these. Years ago I had one like the one on the left, but I don't have it anymore.

    • I have been backsliding, but backsliding in a better way than before. The money has felt tighter than normal lately. I decided not to be too hard on myself, because part of that was from losing my second job due to COVID. Also I joined a new church, and really want to keep up with the tithing. That has become important to me. I found I need to tighten the budget and cut back on too much takeout/delivery [Door Dash is my vice]. That's hard for me. I was not budgeting well, and I found myself the week before Father's Day with not enough money for gifts and food that week, so I opened a new credit card. I used that to buy gifts and food, then some more food and takeout. I feel really badly about that.  BUT my old self would have just kept the card, and gone shopping for beauty items with it too, and I would have given up on my No Buy/Project Use It Up. NOW I caught myself after about two weeks of this backsliding, cut up the card, took the card number out of the computer. Because if it's there, it's too much temptation. And I kept right on using my old beauty stuff, I was not even tempted to buy new beauty stuff, just food!  Now I will wait for the bill for the new credit card to come in the mail and work on paying it off. The fact that I am rebounding like this instead of going back to my old behavior is a really good sign! I do need to work on the eating out. Getting Nutrisystem was not such a good idea. The dry food is hard to eat and it is pretty expensive too. But I will keep trying to change my food habits. Until now, I have not really had to do that to achieve my goals. We're moving into the higher goals now. 
    • Men with gray hair are often flattered for their distinguished looks. Timothy Olyphant, John Slattery and other stars demonstrate the attractive face of gray hair. We hope they help you discover the cut that will best suit your gray hair. Take a look at these three guys in the photo above. The photo on the right shows Adam Lambert (born 1982), who is the youngest of the three. He probably doesn't want to praise senior citizens, but instead prefers to wear his voluminous gray hair to stand out from the crowd. Some young stars like Adam Lambert and Kelly Osbourne love to wear gray hair and enjoy playing with cliches. Of course, such characteristic appearances draw the attention of young Hollywood-obsessed youth. The white hair mixed with natural colors in the heads of young stars attracts more sure looks that lilacs, pinks or greens and go unnoticed. In the photo Timothy Olyphant (born 1968) appears in the center, as does his hairstyle. His “salt and pepper” hair near his temples and on his beard makes him look naturally distinguished and adds the appeal of the hair growth products for african american hair mature man who knows who he is and what he wants. Why change something that works so well? This can also be applied to John Slattery (born 1962), on the left of the photo. Almost all of John Slattery's hair lacks pigment and is therefore close to the transition from silver to white. His modern hairstyle and carefree demeanor show a person who knows how to step forward without getting nervous. No wonder it arouses as much admiration as desire.  Best hairstyles for men with gray hair Whatever the way that stars and celebrities wear or (pretend to) assume their gray hair, since they discover their first gray hair, most men (or women) have only one emotional response: “Oh no! Get rid of them! ” After the first shock of noticing that time passes while we don't realize it, most men at least cut their hair or shave off their beard that is starting to turn gray. This reaction is very constructive. In the photo, Matt Damon demonstrates how interesting haircuts are for men with gray hair. This is also the most popular hairstyle of all time for men with gray hair. George Clooney teaches us how to wear gray hair with style and class.     It can take a while for people to get used to the idea of having gray hair. It is best to have a strategy when the first isolated gray hairs cannot be hidden or plucked for much longer. Why not let gray hair mix freely with the rest of your mane? Adam Lambert, Timothy Olyphant and John Slattery (see photo above) demonstrate how to do it with class. Jeff Bridges, with his shoulder length gray hair and thick beard, is the image of a nature lover, like his younger colleagues, Charlie Hunnam and Jake Gyllenhaal.
    • Love the placement and subtlety of the cat eye and subtle cut crease.  It looks gorgeous. I'm trying to perfect the cut crease with white eyeliner lately.  I've only practiced it twice so I have a long way to go.
    • Essential hydration The dermis is made up of 70% water and the epidermis 15%. To maintain a good level of hydration, it is therefore important to opt for daily moisturizers that balance the water level at the heart of the skin. You can also regularly use a moisturizing mask, it ensure both your face health and beauty by removing the excess using a mist of thermal water.
