I get eyeliner nearly every month it seems and I don't use it at all. I don't know how to get them to stop sending it to me.

I'm happy. I always get the 50/50 product I already have like the smashbox primer that one month. I got the liquid matt instead of the manizer which I have duplicates of so refreshing. I got the shader brush and the it cosmertics mascara which I like the look of the brush. And the mixed bag portion is the argan serum and hand lotion

 I have the same problem with lipstick! I can't wear most formulas, they break my lips out, yet EVERY MONTH I seem to get them, despite that not being an item checked on my quiz. :angry:

I wish I could swap quizzes with you lol. I would love to get lipsticks or lip glosses and rarely get them.

I am so happy I like every item this month. That never happens. :wub:

 

Balm- Meet matt lip gloss - already have cindy-loumanizer from Birchbox .

Aurora gel- always like nail polish, never tried gel

Purlisse BB cream- always need this

Dr. Brandt scrub- got this in Birchbox, love it but would never fork over $80 for a full size

Be Delectable hand cream- was so mad about missing this last time  I almost bought a bottle at kohls for $5

My Bag:

 

Eva NYC hair mask 

LeeAnni Eco serum

Tarte lipsurgence gloss

Emite Makeup tweezers

theBalm Mary Loumanizer

 

I love getting hair masks/deep conditioners - I have long wavy/curly hair that gets frizzy/dry easily. I'll try the serum. 

 

I can take or leave the lipsurgence gloss. I have the lip crayon version of the same thing, and it's pretty, but I don't wear glosses very often.

 

My emite lash curler was one of the damaged ones. I am not interested in these tweezers. I guess I can throw them in the first aid kit.

 

I love Mary Lou, but I already have a full size and was really hoping for the liquid lipstick. 

 

*heavy sigh*

I'm getting:

 

Meet Matt(e) liquid lipstick- looking forward to this. I love theBalm! Hopefully the shade is flattering on me. I like nude and rose shades so chances are good :)

 

Kbshimmer gray nail polish- Yippee!!! I wanted this when I saw the spoiler last night. Perfect surprise for my birthday glam bag!

 

Coastal scents eyeliner- I now have enough black pencil eyeliners to use for firewood this winter.

 

Nourish Argan face serum- I'll give it a try. The eye cream I got from them was unremarkable.

 

Lavanilla rollerball- I hate getting perfume because I never wear it but I love this brand and vanilla is one of my favorite scents. I think I'll actually like this!

I'd love to hear what you think of the Tarte lip gloss. I've wanted to try it to see if it actually adjusts to your personal lip shade.

Dang I thought the Dose was purple lip gloss but it’s a nail polish. I also see that the Laura Geller is a blush and not shadow. 

 

This is what I’m getting in my bag-

 

Ayres Ipsy Exclusive Pampas Sunrise Hand Cream- I'm happy with hand cream as long as it doesn't smell awful. I like fruity smells but I don't care for patchouli. 

 

Coastal Scents Xpress Line Cosmetic Pencil- I found this to be the most disappointing part of my bag. Compared to the Skone it's just bleh, in both brand and color. I will try it though.  Hopefully it's of decent quality. 

 

Tarte LipSurgence – This is sort of interesting in a gimmicky kind of way. It wasn’t my top pick as I was hoping for nail polish but it wasn’t my bottom pick either. I’m happy enough with it. 

 

Nourish Organic Pure Hydrating Argan Face Serum- I more or less have a routine I like already and am weary about adding new things to it. I like that this is hydrating though. My skin has already started getting chapped and winters not even here yet! 

 

theBalm Cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer- I didn’t really have a preference between this or the lipstick. Although I love matte lipstick and the color was definitely something I would wear I don’t really have much in the highlighter department. 

 

I’m sad about not getting any of the nail polish. I really wanted the Aurora. I also thought the gray was pretty. As far as the Dose goes it’s in a pill shaped form right? So does that mean the bottom won’t be flat? I would find that aggravating. I’m also sad about the Skone. I loved the last liner I got from them and purple liner works great for me (natural red hair and green eyes so really everything purple works for me lol). I’ve wanted to try the Touch in Sol brow pencil but seeing as it was only offered in one dark color I’m glad I didn’t get it. The Girlactik Beauty Precise Marker Liner also looks great. I work best with marker type liners. Not sure if it’s because they are easier to use in general or because I’m used to inking in my art work. The pumpkin face scrub is very October. I guess they put that and all the purple in for fall.  Overall my bags alright I will probably use three out of five products. It’s not the best bag but not the worst either.

I totally forgot about Ipsy this month. I just looked today because I got an email saying it had shipped (yay!)

 

I'm getting: (warning not so yay)

 

 -Mica Beauty Cream Eyeshadow in Bronze. When will these only beauty box brands die? I mean I guess this is okay and I'll probably use it since I like cream shadow, but meh.

-Emite Professional Slant Tweezers. These will go in the first aid kit, since I have no use for tweezers. I might also gift them. Really no clue, but they aren't useful at all for me.

-The Balm Meet Matte Hughes Lipstick! I'm definitely happy to have gotten this instead of the highlighter, but The Balm is just meh to me and this color looks very pink so probably another meh.

-BWC Hand and Body Lotion. I've seen spoilers and this looks huge! I also like this brand and use tons of lotion so at least I'll be happy to use it.

-Peter Lamas Exfoliating Pumpkin Scrub. Whoo! Super excited about this! I'm obsessed with pumpkin and I never get the cool face products so this is a win!

Overall there is 2/5 products I'm excited for! One product I'll use eventually and one probably 2 that I'll give away. I'm usually cool with ipsy as long as my bag is 3/5 but this one is really awful and I'm thinking of cancelling. Unfortunately I redeemed points so I'll have to wait until after November.

I wish Ipsy (and other sub boxes) would stop sending out black eyeliner...at least for a little while. I have received 3 black liners from sub boxes this month, and two last month. I don't wear black eyeliner. In the event that another color is an option...I never ever get it.

 

Then again, I guess it doesn't matter because no matter what they do someone will be unhappy.

This is how I feel about face masks and I know some people LOVE them. I don't, and I keep getting them. Face scrubs and cleansers I'm okay with but its the masks, sheet and otherwise, that I just can't deal with.

Ah Ipsy, I really need to cancel you but at the same time I feel as though I could never for only $10 a month!

This is what I am getting:

 

theBalm Meet Matt(e) Liquid Lipstick - Glad about the shade! Hopefully this does not dry out my lips too much, and for some weird reason I keep on thinking that I already have this product (Update: Looked in my collection and saw that it was TheBalm Read My Lips Lipgloss in "BAM!", so super excited about this one!)

 

Beaut Without Cruelty Lotion - Eh, I already have more than enough lotions (and if it will not have a scent, why even bother to keep it? This one is def going in the swap pile)

 

Skone Cosmetics Eyeliner - Like how this is a twist up, and that the color is plum (helps bring out my green eyes), I just hope the formula is good!

 

Nourish Organics Serum - Oh no!!! Everything I have from this brand has smelled so bad, I think this one is going in the swap pile before I even open it

 

IT Cosmetics Hello Lashes Mascara - Super excited for this!! Just saw a review on it and it looked amazing, can't wait!

 

So, it comes down to this

 

Super excited about: 1 2

 

Excited about (?): 2 1

 

Not excited about at all: 2

 

So I guess for Ipsy this month was OK good! Good enough at least to not make me cancel yet!

I received a Skone eyeliner last October and loved it! I got the Tattooed Waterproof Eyeliner which is a marker type eyeliner instead of a pencil but I thought the quality was pretty great. I wasn't lucky enough to get one of these in my bag this time (or any of the pretty dark colors for that matter). I'm still hoping they post some things from this bag in the points section.

I'm happily surprised with my bag.

Bag itself: no thanks

Mica cream shadow: this saved it for me and might even be why I keep this sub yet another month. It's perfect for fall and stays put with no creasing so far and no primer.

Delectable hand cream: nice 2 oz size. It's sealed so I'm going to wait to open it.

Pulisse bb cream: small sample .34 oz. it's sealed so I'm also waiting to finish other BB creams.

Dr. Brandt microdermabrasion: I've decided to stop these types of treatments and now I have 2 of these so this won't get used by me but it has a nice value so I'm ok.

Balm lipstick: smells so good! I want to eat it. Nice color for fall. Feels sticky though. Not my fav.

I was almost definitely cancelling so I cashed in all my points. I'm going to have to look at all my past bags and do a pro con cause $10 alone isn't bad but I'm keeping birchbox and it adds up.

Your welcome! I used my finger to apply. Since then I also blended it with mattes and it blended well but some was lost so I reapplied with my finger so it stayed dramatic. I think I like it because it is a dry formula and that is probably why it stays put. It stayed all day, even after hiking.

Ipsy has this in their point rewards section right now! Oh how I WISH I had the points for this! Lol 

 

 

 

I just saw that too and cried a little. I have been thinking about buying that set but holding back because I really don't need any more shadow and I really do need to clean out my makeup collection a little. I wouldn't feel bad if I was spending points rather than $$ on it.

    • According to what I think, when anyone or any organization is deciding to develop an app for themselves or their business they have two options. The first option would be to simply search for a good android app developers company or search and hire a freelance app developer. The second option, which I personally don’t suggest to anyone, is to develop the app in house by hiring someone skilled on your organization’s payroll. It is my personal opinion that one should outsource the app development to someone professional who has the required expertise. Do you think in your opinion that building an app in house would be a better option?

It is crucial to extract out the decayed teeth so that the infection does not spread to the pulp or nerve. This can cause severe pain and swelling in gums and also abscess formation. Hence, it is important to treat a dental infection at the earliest. Visit Veya Aesthetics to get consultation and treatment from a root canal specialist in Delhi, for a painless Root Canal Treatment.
