Ipsy Bag Review: May 2013

The Bag/Theme: VERY cute, loved that it was blues and orange.  I’m not a fan of pink.  The theme was “Spring Fling”, which I feel is a little late for the season and a very UGH phrase, anyway.  This is the FIRST bag where they’ve confirmed that they chose products based on our website profiles. Under…

Ipsy Bag Review: April 2013

The Bag: This bag is a white textured material with a pink zipper, and a pink striped silk lining.  I don’t think white bags and makeup mix well, so I probably won’t use this.  Cute, though! Two Cosmetics Duo Eyeshadow in Heartache: I think pink eyeshadow is underused.  These were two colours that didn’t seem…

Ipsy March 2013: Anchors Aweigh!

The Bag – Very cute nautical print, but it felt a little flimsy.  Not sure how much I’d use this in my purse.  I prefer slightly more durable bags because I’m pretty rough on my stuff! The Shipping – The tracking reports that they shipped the piece on the 6th, but I didn’t get the…

Ipsy: February 2013

Tracking: I got my tracking number today (2/11), but it had apparently arrived Saturday (2/9).  Uh. Bag: I opened the shipper and was greeted with the delicious smell of plastic.  I love that smell, but i don’t love that smell on a makeup bag.  Eew.  It’s a shiny black patent.  That always looks so cheap…

Ipsy Review: December 2012

So I just realized that I should be getting a tracking number from Ipsy within a day or two, but that I never reviewed my December bag.  Sorry, folks.  The flu took precedent.  I’ll keep this (relatively) brief. The Bag – It’s smaller in height than other bags, but it’s the first I’ve gotten that’s…

MyGlam/Ipsy Bag Review: November 2012

It’s that time again!  I got Ipsy bag in the mail one day after I got my tracking code, which was generated about three days before I received it, and two days before the projected delivery day.  I’m guessing their strategy is now to hold back the tracking numbers to give the illusion of speedy…

My Glam/Ipsy Review: October 2012

This bag game in three days and shipped on the 10th.  So much speedier shipping, but I think that was thanks to the SmartPost-esque shipping. The Bag – It’s a black and white chevron with a bright red zipper.  I think it looks SO GOOD.  I don’t tend to equate chevron with bombshell, but the…

MyGlam/Ipsy September 2012 Review

So let’s start here. I got by bag on September 22nd. That’s NOT mid-month. It shipped on the 17th. That’s closer to mid-month, but still wrong. While I will grant that I’ve been having zero love for the postal service lately (the second package was misdelivered out of Cincinatti, I guess.) The bags were shipped…

MyGlam: August 2012

Another month, another Glam Bag.  The August theme was Endless Summer, which the GlamTeam took to mean “don’t ever look old”.  Fair enough, MyGlam. The bag was neon orange mesh with a neon pink zipper.  I was raised to react with horror to that color combination.  But it’s a nice little bag.  I’m starting to…

MyGlam July 2012 Extended Cut

Let’s revisit that MyGlam post, shall we? I hadn’t gotten to try out a couple products when I reviewed, so Imma tackle them now. First, the conditioner.  I mentioned that it smelled nice.  When I got it out in the shower, I have to say, “nice smell” went to “OH MY GOD I LOVE.”  It’s…

Myglam Bag Review: July 2012

This month’s bag was themed for beach beauty.  It had a couple items that everyone got, then some this or that options.  I think that’s actually sort of fun because even when I totally ruin the surprise of what’s in the bag, I still get something of a surprise.  I love a good spoiler, but…
