Into The Darkness Box

0

Have you ever noticed that I make posts about things that have been released and long gone for so long that it isn’t even funny? I’m not a reviewer or a swatcher. I’m an amateur blogger that does this at my own convenience. That would be exactly why I’m posting about this box that was released in October of 2016 and I just never was able to find the time to post about it. I’ve had these pictures for like six months at this point. Enjoy?

January 2017 Ipsy Bag

0

Alright, let’s start this off a little different. This is my last Ipsy that I will be receiving. There will be no more resubscribing. I’ve decided to cut ties with this subscription bag. For starters, they would not stop sending stuff from The Balm. I was tired of it. I never used it and almost always tried to destash it. Aside from that, I don’t like the way they provided customer service to my BFFF. She received a tracking notification early in the month (I believe around the 6th). From then, it never updated. She contacted Ipsy not long after that. They assured her that it was on the way (not sure how they could tell when the tracking was not updating at all). Finally after over 20 days, she asked them for a refund. They told her that they do not issue refunds but they would send her another bag, that they would send another tracking code, and it would leave their warehouse in 5-7 days. Wait, what? Stop the truck. 5-7 days to send the replacement bag from their warehouse? So she would get her bag in February, and not be able to review the products to be able to get a better curated February bag. She cancelled, and I have cancelled in solidarity. I think that is a bit ridiculous and it should not have taken so long to resend a new bag when clearly the tracking was not updating on DHL and the tracking number was no good for USPS.

Aside from that, my bag this month was alright. I’ll use the products. I just have such a sour taste in my mouth that I’ll go with a different subscription service instead, like Boxycharm possibly. Either way, I’m done with Ipsy. Check out my bag below though.

December Ipsy Bag: One Month Late

0

So this is a month late, but I think we can all understand that December gets a little bit crazy sometimes with the holidays so it wasn’t at the top of my priority list around that time. I got the December Ipsy bag and was mostly satisfied with the things that I received. The bag is horrid and fuzzy and bright pink, but it’s a makeup bag so I’ll take it. I can’t say it won’t just sit there though. Overall, not a bad bag. Check it out below the cut.

REVIEW: My Indie Polish: The Anniversary Set

0

Today I have a review that I’ve been really excited for!  These are polishes that I have been holding onto forever from My Indie Polish.  The Anniversary Set is a duo of polishes that Tanya released to celebrate her 20th anniversary with her husband.  The story behind them is fantastic!  These are gorgeous polishes that I don’t want to take off my nails!

Let me start by saying that My Indie Polish is the first indie brand that I purchased from.  I own many of Tanya’s polishes and I really adore all of them.  They have all have great longevity, they are unique, and absolutely stunning.  You can tell that Tanya cares about her business and the polishes that she produces.
