Maybe it's just me but I feel as if the cosmetics are picked and then just put into a bag whether or not it's something you want.

For example, if you're the kind of person that doesn't like bright colors but that's all there is, that's what you're going to get.

I am glad that they have a new normalish looking stylist and Michelle is back. That being said I can't help but wonder how much money they spend on these videos. It just looks like a vanity exercise for the stylists. Look at me, I am young, skinny and wearing five different types of eyeliner at once. Tee hee.

If they got rid of these stupid videos they could give EVERY subscriber good quality products!

I hate those videos.  As a grown adult it sort of makes me not want to tell my other adult friends about Ipsy.  They are very geared to the young crowd and not at all what I want to have associated with the professional adult image I am trying desperately to have the outside world believe in.

Agreed.

Those videos are irritate me. I believe August will be my last month just because I have three 'bonus' items (redeemed with points) that I am waiting for and after I am gone. They should spend the $$ on quality products, or even reducing the shipping costs for us CDN customers instead of spending it on those videos.

 

I think I'll go with Glossybox next.

After my annual gift expires in November I am gone - up until then (before November 1st) I will redeem all my points and cancel - I love BB and their awesome point system! I find them a more professional and geared-more-towards-my-age-group kind of company.

Know what would be better than videos....early access....like super early, like before the silly vids!

 

Spend the money on the programmers/coding to make THAT happen, Ipsy. Less on prancing around in some silly video.

Yeah, I really hate these sneak peeks now too. I used to love them! I just keep seeing a bunch of things I would LOVE to try and not get even one of them... sad face.

Now if at least one bag had the Doll10 blush and the other bag had the Noya lipstick, August would've been a great month. As is, the only things I'm excited about are the nail polish in one bag and the eye liner in the second bag.

I think Ipsy knows of my plans to cancel -> I am getting the best bag I've ever gotten since subscribing in April 2014

Hmmmm.  I tried an experiment this month to see if a new subscription with a mostly blank quiz would yield better results.  It did get me the nail polish that I was hoping for, but the rest is just eh.  I'm getting:


 


Bag 1:


Hikari Lip Gloss


Lord & Berry Nub


Pencil Me In Eyeliner


Jessie's Girl Eye Primer


Batiste Dry Shampoo


 


Bag 2:


Hirari Lip Gloss


Pencil me in Eyeliner


Skone Eye/Lip  Liner


Marsk Brush


Marc Anthony Morocco Oil


 


Bag 3 (Don't judge lol):


Trust Fund Nail Polish


Hikari Lip Gloss


Starlooks Eyeliner Pen


Lather Face Wash


Briogeo Volumizer


 


I am glad there is a nice selection between the bags,  Other than a repeat of the Pencil Me In eyeliner and all of them getting the Hikari, there are no other dupes.

I cleared my profile last month to say I only wanted nail polish.

 

What did I not get this month? NAIL POLISH.

 

SO GLAD I canceled Ipsy after this month.  Good riddance.

Another sucky bag, I don't mean to sound like a whiny little child but it is a sucky bag. I have fine hair that needs volume. But do I get dry shampoo ever...no. I could just buy it myself but it should be in my bag. And It' so weird because my sister and I have the same settings, yet month after month she gets the bag that everyone (including me) wants. end rant.

This is my first Ipsy bag, and I'm happy with the items in it =) Everything in it is something that I'd use and I love that they took my profile into account (as I've seen on here that they don't always do so).

I'm getting the worse bag.

I have marked I don't like nail polish or lipgloss, and that I don't want moisturizer or eyeliner. 

 

and this is what I'm getting:

We should all start an Ipsy support group. "Yeah you got an orange lip liner this month but look on the bright side, you can use it for Halloween to draw pumpkins on your kids faces lol."

Wow, that last post was a mess.  Sorry, I don't know how to fix it.

I can fix it for you if you want? I'm getting the same bag so I'll insert my bag pic.

    • 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 ...
    • cool, thanks for the tips!  I like all of k-beauty products I've tried so far but I haven't tried any foundations yet. The best foundation I've found is FitMe and it's super cheap but I want to change brands.  FitMe is a matte finish.
