ipsy January & February 2016 : The kiss-off

ipsy2Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice and I’ll talk shit about you on the internet.

The preview item for the January ipsy bag had me intrigued. So I subscribed. The bag was entirely lackluster. I thought I cancelled before February. I apparently missed the stupid second step, so I got saddled with a second bag.

I don’t want to total up how much of my money I’ve given this company. I don’t want to think about all the ways they’ve ignored my pleas–PLEASE, NO MORE FRAGRANCES–and bored me with bland-ass beauty products.

I’m done, ipsy. I’m breaking up with you. We’re through. You never listened to me. At best, you gave me cosmetics. At worst, you gave me total bullshit that I can’t even believe you thought I’d want. Like, wtf. Why? So bye, ipsy. I wish I could say it’s been real.

January’s Loves: Burt’s Bees Cleansing Oil, the Balm Cosmetics Mr. Write Now (in kind of a burgundy), The pop-art print bag

January’s Ehhhs: Hanalei Sugar Lip Scrub (literally sugar in Vaseline), Skone Cosmetics Smudger Brush (I mean, brushes are always welcome, I guess.), Pixi by Petra Eyeshadow in somewhat brown and somewhat kind of purple brown (zzzz)

February’s Loves: The pixel-art textured bag, Margaret Dabbs London nail file (it’s glass! WTF? that’s cool!)

February’s No Thanks: theBalm Cosmetics luminzer (specifically asked for none of these), tre’Stique blush stick (specifically asked for none of these), Jor’el Parker perfume (specifically asked for none of these), Trust Fund Beauty nail polish (haaaaated this colour).
