Ipsy Points Rewards

Recommended Posts

I got my points bag just now - here's a photo!

 

August 2014 Ipsy Points "Favorites" Bag

 

Contents:

  • Starlooks pencil in Amethyst
  • Pop Beauty "Bring Up Your Life" trio
  • Klorane soothing and relaxing patches with soothing cornflower - eye countour
  • Coastal Scents Medium Shadow Brush
  • Pacifica Indian Coconut Nectar Body Butter
  • "On the Wild Side" June 2013 bag

 

Items I will be swapping if interested:  Pop Beauty trio, "On the Wild Side" bag, and possibly the Starlooks pencil (not sure if I have that one yet)

 

It was worth it 100% just to get another Pacifica Body Butter though - it's my absolute favorite.  I've already gone through 1½ and winter's coming up!

I'm going to be cancelling Ipsy because of their customer service and point system.  When they first started the point system I racked alot of points up by referrals.  It wasn't until many months later that they actually had products to redeem them on, and I didn't find them worthwhile or wasn't able to get to the good ones before they ran out.  I had been waiting for something to show up to redeem my points on, but in the last 2 months about 500 of my points expired.  I was able to get 300 of them back last month by contacting customer service, but when i tried to do it this month they said they couldn't give me my points back.  I wrote a comment on their facebook wall saying this and stating the above, and that it is understandable that birchbox points expire since you can buy whatever from their shop at any time, and how their system isn't comparable.  They wrote to me saying they deleted it for "profanity".  I didn't say anything profane.  I'm so done with Ipsy.  I redeemed my points on some crap product that i have no interest in, and as soon as it arrives, I'm cancelling and going to encourage all my friends to do the same.  I feel like I worked hard to get those points and they are of no value.

The point system has me about ready to rage cancel lol. I had 100 points expire earlier in the month and it brought me down to 840, but I was trying to be optimistic that,somehow, I could still earn enough points each month to get more than what I lose and eventually cash in. Then, I logged in today to start rating this month's items and I had another 40 pts gone!!! Gah. I think I just figured the 100 that expired at the beginning of the month was like the whole month's worth of points or something.

I even have a referral and still wasn't able to cash in for anything before my points started expiring. (but I did unsubscribe for two months, to cut costs in my budget...now I wish I wouldn't have, because I would've been able to get something!)

I was planning on getting the NYX palette thing that they have had forever that no one else seems to want LOL  They could've decluttered a bit by sending me the thing that they can't get rid of .... but no.

Sorry. Rant. Over.

I was at 990 points and just got the "share on FB" email so hastily got my 10 points and redeemed for the Milani shadow trio.

 

I just want something and not the dumb decals!

There is a new 500 points rewards, the Bodyography Lip Slide, it seems like it's worth around $20... I redeemed because I don't think I'll ever have 1000 points!

I now have 515 points, but the only 500 point reward is sold out. Nine rewards and only ONE is 500 points? Stupid!

I don't see why they can't put up a "points redemption store" (instead of that stupid scroll slideshow)  and then have different tiers for different options.  And also make it possible to accumulate points for perks easily (paired with higher point values).  HIgher point values should be rewarded for taking the bag and giving reviews (a la Glossybox and Birchbox).

 

They could have the 500 and 1000 perks as always - and since the current point-categories are glaringly empty, it might embarrass them into adding more options and keeping those sections stocked.

 

A 350-500 point perk could be for one of their previous months' bags - bag only (especially for recent signups who might want to collect more).

 

They could start up the 1500 point perk category again for former ('Mystery') Glam Bags.

 

And maybe a 2000 points category for a free new bag the following month (like Glossy and Julep do).  And maybe even an additional 2500 point perk for the free new bag the following month -plus- one extra bonus product that was NOT included in your Glam Bags that month.

 

They could even make a 4000 - 5000 point special "limited edition" bag full of their best high end products, with the bags and contents being themed ifor a Christmas, New Year's, and/or Valentine's Glam Bag.

 

That's just a start.  But if I can come up with that off the top of my head, surely they can too!

You should send this idea to them! They do need more 300-500 points rewards, and an item from a previous bag (or the bag itself) would be an amazing idea. I'm sure they are a few left overs right?!

The eyeshadow is quite pretty, but it's sooo much like the Pacifica one they sent some months ago, which I think I'm the only Ipster who actually liked it.

I just hit pan on my gold Pacifica eyeshadow. It's a great everyday shade for me :)

I've been with Ipsy for a year and a half, longer if you count the first time I subbed to them.  I've been with Birchbox since May of this year, and I don't think I fully understood just how poor Ipsy's point program is until I cashed in my Birchbox points for $40 towards full size products in their shop.

 

I haven't been with Birchbox even 6 months, yet my points got me a heck of a lot more than nail stickers.  Heck, the free mystery pack you get with your order were worth more than the nail stickers.  With my Ipsy points, I don't have enough points to redeem for their dinky stickers even if I wanted them.  And my points keep expiring.  

 

I've been debating canceling because of the points program, but also because of the brands they partner with and the fact that Ipsy doesn't have a shop like Birchbox does.  I really hate punching in my credit card on numerous websites, and with Ipsy most of the brands they partner with have iffy-looking websites that don't make me feel eager to shop with them even if I did like their product and would be interested in purchasing it.  

 

ETA: I just went ahead and canceled Ipsy.

You used the b word- Birchbox. Apparently they are really big on ipsters never ever mentioning their competitors.

I noticed that I'd been referring lots of my site's visitors to Ipsy but hadn't received any referral points in AGES.  Then I logged into Ipsy and saw that my referral code had changed- it was now longer with a string at the end describing the traffic source.  Has anyone else noticed this?  Do you know if you will still receive points when people follow the older style of link (meaning that none of the hundreds of visitors I've referred have subscribed?) or if you have to update to the new link (did I miss the announcement or something?).

 

THANKS

I think the addition of lower point value rewards is a great idea. As far as higher point value rewards, it's pretty difficult to accumulate even 1,000 points before they start expiring. So unless you're a blogger and have lots of readers using your referral link, I don't see how anyone would ever reach into the multiple thousands of points territory before earlier points expired. They would need to do away with point expiration all together or extend their expiration date by another 6-12 months to make this viable for all subscribers (not just those with blogs/YouTube channels/websites)

    • When you have something that need to step foot out into the street, must you need to review myself to have decent and neat yet. Or maybe you need to makeup the back face, cool his hair a little. In addition to a face skin smooth screen, then hair neatly with the style chignon simple will help you look more outstanding. In these days of cold weather, your hair can be dull, rough or matted due to shampooing, so the bun hairstyle simple will help keep looks cute and more refreshed. If you are a person who love makeup, love beauty, then you should not skip this article! Here are 5 types of beautiful and simple hair that make you look great The Hairstyle On The Top This style of top bun is suitable for girls traveling by car or bus, not wearing a helmet, ensuring you are always neat, but also a little more height for you. This top bun style is a bit different, unlike the regular bun, which is the type of hair that knots, looking very different and youthful. This type of bun is also suitable for girls who have not yet washed their hair, can take advantage of the small strands of hair to make it more luxurious, hiding the scalp that begins to be greasy and itchy. Making: First, tie all your hair into a ponytail above the top of the head. You don't have to tie it too tight, you can loosen up to look natural, and you can release a few loose strands of hair around your forehead. Divide the hair into two equal parts, wrap the first strand around the rest of the hair and use a fixed clip to fix it. Take the rest of your hair, do the same thing, but wrap it in the opposite direction, and then use a peg to fix it. So the hairstyle on the top of your head is completed, it looks very dynamic right? Feminine Hairstyle This is the perfect way to put on a bun to wear a helmet, also neat enough for you to wear the turtleneck sweater and scarf without itching. It can be considered as a basic type of bun, decorated with a braided pigtail to add to the momentum, making your school and work days less boring. This is also a very romantic hairstyle, suitable for you to handle messy hair in dating. Making: Separate a small lock of hair in front of your face so that it will be braided later. The rest grabbed into a ponytail. From this ponytail, twist it into a simple twist and pin it with a toothpick. Use the hair in front of the face to form a strand of ponytail, tied temporarily with small rubber bands. Then, use your fingers to drag the braids to make the pigtail look loose and wider. Wrap it in the bun behind your head, then pin it with a toothpick and you're done. If you have a lot of loose hair, apply a little hairspray. Multi-layered Hair Drawn If you do not know how to create a chignon, you can still apply an extremely simple technique to create a special bun style, ready for parties. How to create multi-layered knots: First, comb your hair very smoothly, then take a part of the hair above the top of the head, divide it into two sections and tie the knot together. Combine some hair underneath each strand, then continue tying the knot together. Keep going until you have all your hair on the knots. Secure the tail with elastic. Afterwards, insert the ends into the hair and pin it with a toothpick to finish. If your hair is longer than the model in the photo, you can continue to tie the long strand of hair down the back of your neck like a ponytail, then twist it into a bun and pin it with a small clip. If desired, fingers can be inserted into the knots to create a thick and fluffy bun. For people with very smooth hair, spray extra hairspray or dry wax to prevent knots from falling out. Curly Hair Chignon This is a very elegant, elegant bun hairstyle, similar to the hairstyles of many famous stars attending the event, but it's actually very easy to do, you don't need sophisticated styling tools, but Just hair ties and toothpicks will suffice. Making: Take a lock of hair above the ears, twist it, and twist it to get more hair into the lock. Do the same thing on the other side of the lock, then tie the entire hair into a low ponytail behind the nape of the neck. Insert your fingers into the middle of the hair above the elastic to create a gap, then thread the entire end of the hair into this space, taking care not to let the ends pass through to reveal under the bun. If your hair is too long, you can place a portion of it on top, then clip it around with a toothpick. So your bun is done. Thanks to the double curls on the ear, your hair will look thicker, more fluffy and more sophisticated. You can drop a few strands of hair hanging down in front for a more feminine. Style Chignon This is a hairstyle suitable for the evening outings, creating a youthful look, a bit rebellious and suitable for dusty costumes. Making: If you do not have time, you can skip steps 1 to 4: These are the steps to tangle the hair on the top of the head to create a feeling of thicker hair, thereby making your face appear smaller. You can directly do it from the 5th step, which is to tie all the hair into a low ponytail, and then divide the hair into 2 parts. For the upper part, let's disassemble, then fold the lower part to cover this messy hair, forming a bulging bun. Use a rubber band to fasten, then divide the extra hair ends of the 2nd part into 2 smaller strands, use these 2 smaller strands to wrap around the elastic band and then pin with a toothpick to complete. If you want more momentum, you can use a curling iron a few curls around the face. hope you can choose for yourself a beautiful bun among the above. ------------------------------ Website: https://beautizon.co/
    • Try BB cream or CC Cream, avoid using foundations,I prefer using bb cream and cc cream as it suit my skin type
    • It is definitely the MICA! I cannot use any mineral products or anything containing Mica which sucks because all the good blushes and colors have Mica but as soon as I use it I break out.  I have no breakouts at all now that I am MICA free.  
    • I got your point. This is the same with me. They arent curls in a proper a way but due to lack of moisture they have become rough and frizzy  at the end and tend to curl. But you dont need to panic Start coconut oil again following with a masaage for 5 minutes Apply yogurt or dahi at the tips in order to retain up the smoothness and moisture at the end Dont forget to condition your hair when ever you shampoo
