I got that brush last month too.  It was my first ipsy bag, and that had me feeling really happy about the subscription.

 

Although I also had pretty good luck using my Be a Bombshell one stick.  It has great staying power and looks pretty good when applied with the elf small stippling brush.

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

i got this last month! i guess it makes up for this month, since it costs nearly as much as three months of ipsy subs! i also got the pop beauty shadow trio in the browns, which is nice :smileyhappy: and i did like the nyx lipstick i got, so i was pretty impressed. i also held on the to taupe polish i got, only because the color matches my siamese haha. because what if i wanted to do a linus themed manicure? do people do that? am i a little crazy? a little to attached to my cat? perhaps...

Ok so here's what I'm getting

Proactive + Mark fading pads

Elizabeth Mitts smooth shadow

Skiin soothing and smoothing eye cream

Healthy sexy hair soy tri wheat leave in conditioner

MALIN + GOETZ mojito lip balm 

My thought on it I'm ok with what I'm getting, the only thing I'm not thrilled about is the proactive. Could it have been better sure you bet it will most likes be a better bag next month but overall I'm happy now I just need it to get here soon!

ah well, for some reason I'm not ready to let it go quite yet.

I have a hard time reading your notes with the black & white. I think you're saying you don't like what you're getting. I actually kind of like your bag. The hair mask, shadow pencil & tinted lip balm all look nice... well better than what I'm getting :smileytongue:

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

Sorry it was hard to read, this app messes with the resolution, I'll improve it next time. I'm not very excited about the brands this month but I'm still waiting to test them, I've been happily surprised several times before so I wait to review until I test the items. 

I still think the experience itself overall is worth $10 but less so with some bags. :smileywink:

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

Gotcha. 

Which app are you using?

Phonto, it won't save in a higher res so I need to use a fatter font or more contrasting color.

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

I know what you mean, the brands and products this month aren't that exciting

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

So I finally got off the waiting list, but I don't get my first until next month. I really wanted that mojito lip balm. Drats!

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

Okay, this is what I got:

 

Benefit the POREfessional

(MALIN+GOETZ) Mojito Lip Balm

Balanced Guru Balm Me Up Organic Sweet Cocoa & Tangy Body Balm

Absolute! Makeup Cleansing Tissue

yaby Liquid Foundation

 

Lousy for me.  I think I'll unsubscribe.  I like the idea, and if I get something worth $10 I'm good with that, but I have too much stuff I ordered hanging around not being used to get a bunch of stuff I won't use.  Maybe I'll use the lip balm.  I'll check out the Body Balm and see, but I'm not sure about that scent.  I've got more POREfessional around than I will ever use while it's still good, never use cleansing wipes, and would never choose foundation this way.  What are the odds it's even a match?

 

I thought it would be fun for $10 but I think I'll let myself have $10 a month to play elsewhere or make a donation to charity instead.

I got the exact same bag.  Also not what I was hoping for...though to be honest, almost all of the month's samples were rather blah to me.  The only one I'd be excited for is the tinted lip balm...so you know I didn't get it.  At least there's no false eyelashes in this batch.

hahahahaa... I got falsies in every bag except 2 last year. I think they used them as fillers if they ran out of something. I have no idea how to wear them. I have 2 pair of UD ones I have had for at least 3 years **bleep** that I have not touched because I do not know how to use them. I have tried but I seem to glue them more halfway up my eyelid than my lash line.lol. I think I should have my daughter apply them for me instead. Some may be making it to the TSB's.

I have always been afraid to try false lashes, but I got them in my bag last month and found I actually like them!  It was fun to try something new.

 

I do have trouble not placing them too high, but the advice I saw on youtube that seemed to help is starting at the outer eye, placing against the lash line, and moving in. Push them down if you need to.

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

Yea, the tinted lip balm is the thing I'd most likely use, so of course it won't be in my bag. :smileyhappy:  The foundation might even be my color, but it's just not me.  And I agree, it's all rather blah, although the shadow stick sounds interesting and like something I might use. 

 

It's not that I'm not getting things worth more than $10, but more am I getting $10 worth of stuff that I'll use.  I'll probably give it through March which will be 6 months for me and should be long enough to see what the trend is and how it matches what I'd like.

I think the same, the bags are a good value but I have a lot of nice stuff and think I might be better off choosing one $10 drugstore thing that I'll actually use or need or just putting the $10 in the perfume fund.
