Ipsy August 2014

The first Sneak Peek has been released!

 

 

I think this is a great start!

Re: Ipsy August 2014

Perfect hair day?  I thought that was a myth.

Re: Ipsy August 2014

No, that is Big Foot.

Re: Ipsy August 2014

I was looking into Sample Society that month, and the selection totally turned me off. But I think kittichick might be right -- it looks like they've really stepped it up in the past couple months, so who knows?

Re: Ipsy August 2014

I think you just convinced me to switch over to Sample Society. 

Re: Ipsy August 2014

Now, they just need to get better at putting all of the samples in the box.  I received the box one sample short two months in a row, so I was so happy when I got all of the items in the most recent box.  I was hopeful that the revamp would also bring fully packed boxes.  On Facebook yesterday, I read the LM highlighter was missing from a bunch of boxes!  Why are they the only box that seems to happen with?  Is it really that hard to put the right samples in the box.  On each of the two months they forgot an item of mine, they replaced it.  Apparently, they were so short on LM highlighters that no one got a replacement.  People who complained were given a $3 credit.  I pay $16.22 for my box, so I would have been mad with a $3 credit.  It better at least be $3.24 (1/5 what I paid).  Yes, if they short me again, I will argue for the $0.24.  It is principle, right!

Re: Ipsy August 2014

This will be my second month at ipsy. I am thinking about unsubscribing. I get glossybox already and love love it. Any suggestions on other great boxes?

Re: Ipsy August 2014

I am still mad at Glossybox, but I agree the boxes are fabulous.

 

Have you ever subscribed to Birchbox?  It is my fave.  For the same $10 I pay Ipsy, I typically get better stuff.  Since the revamp, I like that I get to pick a sample each month or pick the every girl box (assuming I am fast enough and like enough of the samples).  Then, I know all of the items I will get.  Birchbox always has a nice mix of products too.  The peel I got in the last box is amazing!

Re: Ipsy August 2014

 will consider birchbox, are the samples the same size as ipsy? 

Re: Ipsy August 2014

They're usually deluxe sample sizes. Full sizes are less common than with Ipsy, but I think you get a better quality of product, in general.

 

They are also well-rounded. Just about every box includes one each of makeup, hair care, skin care, and body, with a fifth item (an extra in one of those groups or a "lifestyle" item.)

 

Personally, I love Birchbox. You aren't going to love every single item in every single box. That's just not gonna happen since we all like different things. But for $10 a month, it's a lot of fun and I've found quite a few products that I love.

Re: Ipsy August 2014

I absolutely love glossy box! I would suggest lip factory- IF you're into lip products, because that's what you'll get a lot of. I've been getting them for 3 or 4 months now, I think, and last month's box was the only one I didn't care for.
