Ipsy Points Rewards

Recommended Posts

I figured this topic deserved it's own thread, as much discussion there is about it.  Anyhow, I emailed ipsyCare regarding my displeasure at their current offering of points rewards (the lipstick and NYX palette) and this was their response: 

 

Thanks for writing, and thanks for your suggestions. I'm so sorry to hear that you're disappointed. We rely on feedback from our members to help make ipsy even better. Please let me know if you have any other ideas, and stay tuned – new referral gifts will be coming soon! I can not give an exact time frame for when the new reward will be revealed as a new one may not go up until one of the current items sells out. Apologies for the inconvenience, and thanks again for your patience, understanding, and continued support!

 

So, it looks like we may have to wait for either of those items to sell out before new ones are posted, despite a post I saw on their page saying they post new rewards every month...

And they just added two Jouer lip glosses...I was kind of hoping for a totally different reward, not another lip product!

I just am kind of disappointed with the whole Ipsypoints thing in general. Unless you spam people, there's really no way to get enough points.

there are two new lipglosses, but one has already sold out so maybe a new product soon? The point system sucks, I agree there.

Just two days later the Jouer lip glosses are GONE!  "only" 787 moxie lipsticks left. Well, looks like I'm waiting for next month for another "reward"

 Since the points don't carry over year-to-year, I will never get enough as I don't care to be known as Mrs. Spamalot. Ipsy points are a total joke to me.....kinda like "Ipsy Match"

OK lets assume you get 4 items for 6 months, and 5 items for 6 months, you would then get 540 points for the reviews each month. They give you 100 points for signing up, and then if you share your bag of facebook and answer their question each month that is 120 points (which I've never had the opportunity to answer that question), it leaves 240 remaining after a year to get to 1,000 points. It's pretty clear that ipsy wants people to refer them business, so they don't have to spend as much on advertising.  Because, to get 1,000 points in a year even if you get 5 items EVERY month that's still not enough to add up to 1,000 points. You pretty much have to refer at least ONE person!  I have been lucky in that I have had 3 friends personally requested that I send them the refferal link after they saw some of the stuff I got, but I doubt I will get anyone else to sign up. Because like you stated you I don't want to spam everyone.

OK the rewards are not at all comparable in terms of price. The lipstick is $18, the Nyx Palette is $12, and the aloe masks they just added are $6, what a joke! I saved up 1000 points for a $6 mask? *Sigh* Maybe I WILL redeem for the lipstick after all :-/

The crazy/annoying thing with this is that THERE IS ALREADY A WAITING LIST!  They're not filling the demand that already exists, but they want even more people lining up to jump on board.  So, hey, friend of mine, sign up on this waiting list that you may or may not ever get off of so I can get more points that translates to a lipstick I only kind of want!

I don't even kind of want it... if I do redeem it, I'd probably end up trading it away.

I just wanted to point out that the masks actually retail for $6.99 EACH, and the reward was for a four-pack.  Baksshi sells the four-packs for $24.99 on their site.  The price might be a little higher than, say, what you'd pay for a lot of the Korean sheet masks, but it's of a comparable value to the other rewards.  I redeemed for the masks, and also recieved the bareMinerals lipstick this month.  I would not have thought coral was the best lip color for me but I actually love it- I wore it out last night immediately after receiving it, and then dit a light application (blotted with tissue) again for work today.

guess I missed the masks reveal!!  I thought they were just added as I didn't read anything about them

 

@@lgandab is correct - these are about 28 dollars, so it is one of the better deals there currently

 

O/T - I only have to get 60 more points and then I can cash in my points - and seriously rethink my ipsy sub ;)

 

Baksshi Sheet Masks (4 Count)

 

 

The Baksshi Masks are paraban free, cruelty free, all natural with no artificial preservative and are a botanically rich formula.

 

Directions for Use: Wash and pat dry your face a usual. Carefully place sheet mask on your face. Leave on 15 - 20 minutes. Remove mask and massage the remaining essence into your face and neck. Tone and moisturize as usual.

 

If redeemed as ipsyPoints, customers will receive a set of 4 masks: Aloe Vera Moisturizing Sheet Mask, Vitamin C Brightening Sheet Mask, Honey Hydro-Balancing Sheet Mask and Marine Algae Collagen Sheet Mask.

Ok, the words "remaining essence" just made me laugh and grossed me out at the same time!

Has anyone redeemed points for the lipstick? I'm just curious if its worth the points. The color looks like it might be similar to the nyx one I got back in December's bag, so I'm hesitant.

I like it. I normally can't wear orangey colors, but this one is really flattering (sort of coral-orange). I didn't get an orange NYX lipstick, though, so I don't know how similar it is.

I think the one I got is called Miracle.  I will check when I get home. 

 

I will finally have 1000 points so I want to redeem them, but I dont think I want the nyx kit (the reviews online seem to be wishy washy about it) and I dont want to get the lipstick if I already have a similar color.

I'd definitely suggest googling for some swatches if you haven't already, because the color in the image on Ipsy's website looks nothing like the actual lipstick, imo.

Well, I decided to chose the Revlon color duo. Now, I'm sure something fantastic will pop up, but oh well.

I'm starting to lose interest in their points program, since it doesn't look like I will ever earn enough points to redeem for a product.  I wish they would add another level to it and allow you to add a past sample to your bag for 200 points or something.

Yeah, I think they have it set up so that unless you have referrals, you can't get anything, because you won't get 1000 points in a year, and then they expire. It's pretty terrible.

Exactly, lyncaf.  I don't feel comfortable spamming my friends about this kind of thing and, while I have a blog, it's more of a personal writing exercise than something I'm doing to get followers that would use me as a referral.

Yes! I was just thinking how they should offer levels of points, like 250, 500, 750, 1000. Obviously the 1000 point level should be pretty good items.

    • Now I'm happy because I bought an expensive set of cosmetics and a large organizer. I work as a makeup artist and have long dreamed of changing my professional tools and cosmetics. Thanks to payday loan company North Carolina, my dream came true. I think a loan is a good way to fulfill your dreams.
    • As aging, more and more spots will appear on the skin, especially on our face. It’s our nature to pursue beauty that all of us want to make our skin looks clean and spotless, so most of us use a thick foundation to cover the spots.   But if we know where the stains come from, maybe we will not be so anxious. Usually there are two key reasons that cause the spots because the pigmentation of the skin is closely related to the melanocytes in the basal layer of the skin: 1. One is that the melanocytes in the base of the epidermis increase, which will form a nest of melanocytes, such as pigmented nevus; 2. The another is that melanocytes synthesized by melanocytes are increased, such as sun spots, age spots, and chloasma.  What results in melanocytes increasing? Besides it’s genetic, the most important reason is from solarize.   The ingredients that can cause damage to the skin in the sun are well-known ultraviolet rays. Among them, ultraviolet(UVB) can act on the epidermis, which promotes the synthesis of melanin particles in melanocytes, the increase of  melanocytes, and various pigmentation problems.   Therefore, more importantly, the most importantly for us to get rid of the spots on our skin is to do the best sun protection that you can.   What’s more, CARE II believes that there’s a little difference for different skin type, so we’d better to know the skin type first.   There are four basic types of skin: dry, oily, normal and combination skin. Skin type is determined by genetics, though it can be change according to the various internal and external factors.   1. Dry Skin Dry skin feels tight and rough and look dull. The only advantage of dry skin is that it’s not easy to be oily. But mostly you feel the skin is tight and it’s prone to peeling, fine lines, pigmentation, and skin aging, because dry skin lacks the lipids that it needs to retain moisture and build a protective shield against external influences.   2. Oily Skin Oily skin is completely opposite with the dry skin and it has a glossy shine and visible pores. Oily skin is prone to greasy feeling, and it’s prone to problems such as enlarged pores and hemorrhoids because of the heightened sebum production.   3. Neutral Skin or Normal Skin Neutral skin is well balanced, neither too oily nor too dry, which is the best skin condition. Maybe the T-zone is a bit oily, but overall sebum and moisture is balanced and not like oily skin or dry skin.   4. Combination Skin As the name suggests, combination sky consists of a mix of skin types. Skin types vary between the T-zone and the cheeks on combination skin, for example, the T-zone is often oily because of the strong oil secretion, which will result in rough skin, thick pores, acnes, but the cheek skin is relatively dry and delicate compared with the T-zone, and there will be dryness, desquamation and even red blood, stains and wrinkles issues if the skin hasn’t be taken care well.   Now you know what kind of skin type you are, right? Here CARE II wants to clarify the advantages and the disadvantages of the four skin types.   Skin Type Advantages Disadvantages Dry Skin Not oil Fine lines, pigmentation, and skin aging Oily Skin Moisturize Enlarged pores, acnes Normal Skin Well balanced Easy to be influenced by seasons Combination Skin The cheek skin is delicate Need to take care separately, the T-zone and the cheeks. If not take care carefully, many skin problems will be caused.   You can take care of your skin by the skin type you are.   Besides the reasons that CARE II mentioned above, there are also other reasons, like make-up dirt, stay up late, lack of sleep.   Some tips for you to get spotless skin: 1) Sun Protection-Shade, sunglasses, clothing and hats provide the best protection     -Try best to avoid the sunshine in the midday     -Check the UV index by your phone, if it’s 3 or above, please do sun protection     -Use sunscreen, at least SPF 30+     -Avoid sunlamps and tanning parlours 2) Cleanse Your Skin Cleanly-Remove the makeup thoroughly     -Cleanse your skin cleanly by CARE II RENEWAL facial cleansing brush. 3)  Sleep Early and Sleep Well     - It’s not only for your skin health, but also for your body health, extremely important! 4)  Massage your skin    - You can use CARE II RENEWAL facial cleansing massager to massage your skin.   Alright, you’ve already known what skin type you are and known how to take care of your pigmentation skin. That’s cool!  
    • Now astrology is far more advanced than it was but there are still few birth charts which give the explanations of angel 222 number. We usually have to surf other sites to find such important information. Nevertheless, planets and houses are usually mentioned and thanks God, they are easy for understanding
    • Looking for a good girl? I can tell you about my method. Although it was more a search for the bride ... but I like the result))) I decided to visit a dating site when I realized that I couldn't find the one in real life. It turned out that there are a large number of pretty serious girls. It was pleasantly different from the picture of the world that I usually saw. It is not surprising that I got married quickly)
    • Much depends on the ultimate goal. Are you sure you need to be as successful among girls as your friend? I know a lot of guys who would like a serious relationship more. Finding a good girl is no longer a problem, I think ..
