Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

I would be thrilled with that bag, but everyone is different (obviously haha) and it's unfortunate that so many of us seem to have a big miss this month.

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

in the end i'm happy with 3 out of 5 so i'm considering it a success!!

Highlighted

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

Heres what im getting.  I only liked 2 things in my 2 subs this month :/

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

I got the same things that are in your first list. I could have done without the moisturizer or the face pads, I'm not a fan of getting skin care product samples from ipsy since I already have a routine that I love and am not interested in messing with haha.

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

I got the same first bag too and have the same feeling.  I want make-up not skincare. I'm relatively set in my skincare routine.

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

I feel like I've answered every possible question on their quiz AGAINST skin care but it was kind of unavoidable with this bag.

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

Wait! How did you review the products before you got them? That seems a bit unethical no? 

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

You review products that you are and not interested.  It helps them collect what you want and not.  In this bag i only liked 1 item.  They ask you if your going to buy it which I will not unless they have something that I find amazing Smiley Happy

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

But if you haven't received it yet how do you know you are going to like it/not like it? Just seems a bit shady to me, that's all 

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

dannyc, I wait a few weeks after I get my bag and then do the reviews. That way I get to try the products and see what I think.

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

I know what products i use and what not.  i dont use hair products, scrubs, clear lip balm and pro active (Skincare bc I already have a routine).  In addition the reviews are not for others to observe but to tell ipsy what i want in my bags. Its not like a review where you tell others and is posted how amazing the product is.  I use it to adjust what i will receive in the future. 

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

I didnt get the porefessional Smiley Sad

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.

 

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

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.

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. Smiley Happy  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.

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

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. 

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

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. 

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

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

Got my bag today.  I thought it was going to be bigger

And got something extra 

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

Wow that's a nice nail set, did you redeem point?

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

Yup Smiley Happy.   I got the bblender from last month Smiley Happy too

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

I'm getting the lip balm, I'll let you if it's good. Don't worry February will be here before you know it!

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

I should be more excited since it's a sampling service, I think...

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

Re: ipsy january 2014 thread

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