I agree. When I first starting on Ipsy (OMG, my first beauty sub exactly ONE year ago last November! EEEeee, happy anniversary to me! LOL) I created looks to enter the contests and I began with pictures of myself as the main picture along with youtube videos that related to it and were similar since I wasn't a vlogger. The more I competed the more I tried to emulate what the winners were doing because it worked, which was to find a fabulous picture online of some random model and add famous youtube beauty videos from popular vloggers. I then realized how fake that just seems, and I completely stopped doing it because I knew it just wasn't right. It also drove me absolutely CRAZY that the same people would win over and over just because they have so many followers that "love" their looks and they spam all over the website asking for votes. I did that a couple of times, but I hated doing and felt bad, so I stopped. I would like to see other people win though, I don't even want to compete anymore, but I think in all fairness the same person shouldn't win the prizes (especially the big prize from all the brands) every month.

 

Ok, I'm done ranting now lol :icon_redf

 

Same Ipsy Anniversary!  Go us!!!  :beer:  (That bag started me down a long slippery slope of beauty subs, as well as my obsession with They're Real mascara!)

 

I tried doing looks and such at first, and quickly abandoned the process.  I never really noticed that the same people were winning all the time!  That really does make me cranky, because if the website was easy to navigate, we'd all have a better chance of winning those challenges (and seriously, some of those prizes are FAB! I want one!!!)

 

I also wish the site would log me out after awhile like Birchbox's does, because I forget to log out and just hit the "x" to close the window.  Right now, I can open a tab a few days later to check something on Ipsy, and (5 minutes later once the page loads), I'm still logged in! Yikes!  Not a prob when I'm using my computer, but if I use a friend's or public computer, that's a safety issue!  They have a lot of my info!

Late to the party but November 2012  was when I started with subs Ipsy, BB and Julep.  I discovered MUT while doing research on Ipsy and BB and the rest is history.

Also, Canadians, don't feel too bad. The great state of Rhode Island gets excluded from a lot of contests because their laws are pretty unique and stringent. Also US territories get left out a lot. I used to live on one and always felt like some sort of pariah for being excluded from all the cool contests. Take solace in the fact that you have Tim Hortons and Kinder Bars.

Oh, we do, we do.
