New Subscriber Questions

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I know there are probably countless threads like mine but I'd like to ask some questions about ipsy and I know you're the best resource. 

 

So, I just waitlisted myself today (3/3), do you guys know how long the approximate wait time is? 

 

Also, how much is charged in total to california residents? 

 

Is it worth it? I currently sub to (bear with me): birchbox, glossybox, sample society (just re-joined), julep, influenster (though that's free), and popsugar.

 

I love makeup and I'm trying to get a big makeup based sub (I'm also considering lip factory but I read some not so great posts earlier that made me doubt the company) and I'm wondering how good ipsy is for that? 

 

Thanks again for being such a great source of info ;)

do you guys know how long the approximate wait time is? Some members were on it for three weeks.

Also, how much is charged in total to california residents? I believe it's over $11 with state tax. Ok went to look up California sales tax which is 7.5% so if that's the most sales tax then at most it would be $10.75.

Is it worth it? Depends on your expectations and likes. Many find it worth it and many don't due to the type of items sent out. Each bag value has been well over $20 but if you don't like the items or use it then it's not worth it.

 

 

http://help.ipsy.com/customer/portal/articles/890431-what-is-your-sales-tax-policy-
Due to ipsy’s physical presence in California (CA), New York (NY) and North Carolina (NC), we need to charge a sales tax on any orders that are shipped to those states. The sales tax is automatically calculated based on shipping address, and may vary by zip code within a given state.

 

The sales tax amount will be calculated automatically and will be displayed to you before you check out (when you are buying either a Glam Bag Subscription for yourself, or a Glam Bag Gift Subscription). We will also reflect this sales tax amount in your confirmation email.

 

If you have questions or concerns, please do shoot us a note by clicking "Email ipsyCare" on the right, and we'll be happy to help!

Have you looked into Starbox from Starlooks for a makeup based sub?

I actually won a starlooks box a couple of weeks ago and got the feb box. I hadn't really tried out the makeup because I'm trying to wait until after I move to get any new subs but the quality of the makeup was sooo much better than I expected! I can definitely see myself subscribing to starlooks in the near future.

Thanks!!!

 

I hadn't really been attracted to ipsy because apparently the products are closer to drugstore types than high-end but I'm willing to give it a month and decide from there.

Is there something wrong with yearly subscriptions? I keep getting sent into a loop trying to subscribe.

 

I will go to Ipsy's front page, click the subscribe now button, it takes to the glambag page, telling me to start now or whatever it was, and then it sends me back to their main page.

 

I have tried:

 

- Different browsers. I tried Firefox and Explorer on my laptop. Firefox and Chrome on my PC. Nothing worked.

- Clearing cookies.

- Different login places, as indicated above... PC and Laptop.

- I also contacted their customer help, they told me to try another browser, and of course, I did, but it failed. I replied back, and hoping to hear back.

 

So, anyone have something they can weigh in here for me?

It's probably because they don't have any available spots at this time.

 

 

If subs were unavailable, wouldn't they have specified that in their reply email rather than tell Yukiko to try another browser?

Honestly, I was thinking the same thing. Been almost a day now, still no new reply from them though.

    • You might be in shape otherwise but still have a lump of fat jutting out from under your chin. And we agree, that totally spoils all the photos. But why don't you use makeup to get rid of double chin till such time you lose enough weight to get a chiseled jaw line? So even if you haven't managed to shed all that extra flab yet, but have a party that you just can't miss, don't get upset about the double chin. You can still use makeup cleverly to hide it and look fabulous in all your photos. Here are some makeup hacks that will come in handy:
    • The trick to take care of dry skin is to feed it with moisture. But, there's a drawback, we cannot overfeed it as it may lead to breakouts, acne, and pimples. Therefore, it is important to use the right product that helps to hydrate the skin without much harm.  So how do we combat dry skin?  Here are our favourite and effective product that helps to fight the dry flaky skin.  Cosrx - Hyaluronic Hydra Power Essence Hyaluronic Acid is the king of moisturization and this essence by Cosrx is full of it. It draws water into the skin and immediately moisturizes the dry & depleted skin.  Results: Skin is softer and moisturized, leaving bumpy and dry skin silky smooth. It's excellent for dry to normal skin types.  Some By Mi-H7 Hydromax Moisture Cream The name uses the word hydro max moisture to convey that nothing hydrates better than this! It soothes skin irritation, reduces skin redness and wrinkles. It also has a whitening effect and smoothes rough patches of skin. The 7 types of hyaluronic acid fill in from the deepest layer of the skin and create a barrier so that it can maintain the optimum moisture for a prolonged time. Make sure to use it after cleansing the skin.  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Face Masks are excellent for providing ample moisture and long term hydration to the skin.  Here are our recommendations: Eunyul- Natural Moisture Mask Pack Lined with green tea extract, the facemask works to provide ample moisture to the skin while the collagen helps to reboot the skin in a short time.  Missha-Airy Fit Sheet Mask (Cucumber) This eco-friendly rice cake sheet mask is 2 times thinner than a normal sheet mask. Cucumber helps to effectively help combat dryness while the thin sheet mask feels airy and lightweight. 
    • People tend to collect an amazing quantity of items over the years. Reasons for keeping items include an emotional attachment, an intention to reuse or fix the items in the future, or a wish to pass them on to others. However, for many items, if you haven't used them in over a year, you probably don't need them. Getting some help to get rid of all your rubbish isn't a bad move. Don’t want to do it yourself? These people have you covered. Leave all the heavy lifting work to them. With a professional firm like eMop, you don’t need to worry about the pick-up or disposal of those old items that you don't need any more.
    • 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.
