Ipsy July 2015

Recommended Posts

I decided to clear my quiz, many have said it helps you get a more diverse bag. I've been fairly disappointed in my bags the last two month so I hope it works!

 I would love it if they would quit putting a bunch of great things that only a few of us will get in the spoilers along with a gong show prize that most of us will end up with. Either the Tarte or Essie would be amazing, but the bottom row I could do without.

Kinda disappointed...I thought the tarte product was bronzer and not another brown eyeshadow

It might be a bronzer. I just copied what I  found on a blog. That person thought it was eye shadow.

I tried to rejoin but it seemed like I would be stuck on the waitlist because I don't have instagram. I emailed them and they confirmed that I will be getting next month's bag. The theme is beach to bbq so I am thinking we're getting a waterproof bag in the shape of a hot dog.

I'd love to try the lipstick. And I'm always open to new polishes! I really don't need a bronzer though, since I'm so pale and got the Pixi one last month, that one alone will last me forever! The nude stix could be good, either if it matches my skin color or to use to try contouring maybe? And the eye pencil, I could do without, but I could also make use of it.

Looks like some good stuff there!  I'm hoping to not get nail polishes, because I just found Julep and bought about a gazillion.

 

This will be my second month with Ipsy.  Last month wasn't so great, so I'm hoping for a better bag this time.

I did the same thing! I'm hoping it works or I will be canceling again. I always get one or two good bags and then the bags seem to get worse and worse.

I agree completely. For example, the elusive melted lipstick that hardly anyone got the past two months. I always get bag envy.

I would like to try the Teeez lipstick. It looks like a pretty color and I'm always up for trying new lipsticks. Ipsy please be good to me this month!

It also bugs me that it seems random who gets the highly desirable items. I thought they were reserving them for new subscribers but many new people said they got smashbox. When I have asked on this and other forums who got melted or glamglow the answers are to the effect of "My fourteen year old daughter got it.". Huh?

Exactly! It makes no sense! I hate getting my hopes up and then not getting any of the really good products.

Whats always been frustrating about ipsy for me, and why I wont be renewing my annual subscription after August, is that they send you things you don't have checked off on your profile.  Like the primer- that primer breaks me out SO badly.  I specifically don't have primers checked because other than the smashbox primer water, I've yet to find a traditional primer that doesn't break me out.  Yet there in my bag was primer.

 

And more infuriatingly, I am obsessed with nail polish and rarely get it in my bag.

I rarely get nail polish too- twice in the year and four months I've had Ipsy. I got an ugly mangorita color last summer and this spring I got a Barbie pink. I rated the shade of both low because they were ugly and wonder if that's why I don't get polish. At least polish is cheap at the drugstore so if I miss out on something (like the periwinkle this past March) I can buy it myself for a couple dollars.

It makes me frustrated too, and part of the reason I quit a few months ago. My profile states I'm pale and have dry skin. What do they send me? Medium shade concealer, pores no more mattifying lotion, and a dark purple lipstick. I was so angry.

Do you mean boo boo coverup? I also received medium and I am vampire pale but for some reason this works for me. I liked it so much I ordered another tube. Although it's a concealer I use it as foundation. I cannot imagine what their lightest shade looks like- Commander Data from Star Trek?

    • I used Tinder some time ago, but I don't really like it these days. There are so many bad and fake profiles... I like using some other dating services. I am sure that you will find something interesting and really working for you, good luck with it
    • I'm having some backsliding, but still trying! I'm really seeing progress using my full size cleanser, toner and moisturizer. I decided to change my routine. I have been experiencing for a while now some strange kind of boredom. When I'm not working, I really don't have fun any more. I don't get chores done either. I'll just get up, and the time just passes, and my room will be messy with a pile of laundry, and I don't get it done, and it makes me feel bad. I can't focus on reading a book or watching a show or movie. I always feel my weekend is a waste. I'm not having fun when I'm lazy like this either; it feels awful.  I decided to change my routine and fight this state! I told HR I wanted to work on Saturday every week and have Thursday off every week, which makes both my work weeks and time off shorter periods. I'm hoping it will be easier to make the most of time off when it is one day instead of an entire weekend. And I might feel less tired when the work week is broken up. I also made a list of all I hope to do in my days off. I want to have my laundry done, cleaning done, write in journal, post on Makeup Talk [I do enjoy writing], watch a show or movie and read a book, and best of all use a face mask on the two days off!  I'm not using all my face masks at all. I got a flyer from Yves Rocher with some awesome new face masks and scrubs. I really want one, but not until I've used up all the masks I have now! The Thursday and Sunday off will be my special beauty days to use up products with extra relaxing beauty routines.  Last night I went out with a friend of mine and my brother to Family Dollar. While she was shopping, I looked in the beauty section. I enjoyed it. I saw some things I wanted, but did not get, because I don't need them. I saw: Aromatherapy diffuser set with a little cherub. Pretty makeup brushes. I already have a ton. No reason to wear makeup because I always go out with a face mask. I should make an effort to use eye makeup though. I need to care for myself better and put effort into myself.  Skin care set with cleanser, toner, and cream in one box, only five dollars. I think the cleanser had shea butter. I wanted to try it, but have tons of skin care going back to 2017 I need to get through!  After we took our friend to eat, we came out and had a nail in our tire and a flat. The roadside assistance man was really nice though. I got a Car Care credit card and an appointment to get it fixed today. I am backsliding with my debt snowball, but I'm not going to let it stop me. I'm just going to keep going and start over with whatever debt is smallest, being diligent with No Buy/Project Use It Up.  I have been more productive this morning, started laundry and cleaning and wrote in my journal. The more I try the better it will get! Then maybe I won't order takeout so much. I'm kind of looking forward to going to the auto shop, because it will be something to accomplish, and then I'll go to lunch with my brother (less expensive than getting Door Dash).  The first mask I will be using up is my smallest sample, Glamglow Supermud Clearing Treatment. I have many mini masks from Ipsy, etc. and I believe two full size masks and two full size scrubs, and a box of sheet masks.   
    • I guess you should exercise and eat healthy for it!
    • You absolutely tip the student!! Regardless if they have been in the business for 20 years or they are just starting out - they are putting their time and effort into giving you a gorgeous cut/colour that you will love
    • It's awesom to have the national lipstick day could really amazed the women and girls ! They will ove to have different variety of shade and color ...
