SNEAK PEEK: Julep November 2013

So it appears there's a glitch and a few people have gotten a selection confirmation from Julep for November. Kind of odd, but on the bright side...we know what the color options are for the month!

Here's the upgrade:

Looks like there's also an add-on called Autumn, which is a burnt orange red glitter top coat.

SNEAK PEEK: Ipsy October 2013

October 4th, 2013

Two sneak peeks again today!

"Some of our subscribers will receive this super sweet product, the perfect reward for a long week of creative pursuits."

strawberry & cream ultra nourishing hand cream

Be Delectable Strawberry & Cream Ultra Nourishing Hand Cream

Aaaand the bag. Looks a lot like the April bag, but with scripty writing on it!

October 3rd, 2013

Two sneak peeks up today!

"Some of our subscribers will get the chance to release their inner artist with the help of at least one of these colorful products."

Best guesses, from bottom left:

LA Fresh Oil Free Face Cleansing Wipes. They've sent out LA Fresh Wipes before, so it would make sense for them to feature this brand again.

Wet 'n' Wild Fergie Eye Shadow Palette in Desert Festival, from the Center Stage Collection. Wet 'n' Wild seems like an odd brand to feature to me, but hey.

Featured Eye Shadow Brushes
Starlooks brush. Possibly the Deluxe Precision. I actually have the small dome fluff brush, which very similar to the spoiler image, but I see Starlooks no longer carries it.

I'm undecided if the finger with the cloth is a spoiler or not. It could just be the LA Fresh Wipes again OR it could be Butter London in La Moss that was sent out last month, since that looks to be featured on the nail.

Buxom Full-On Lip Polish in Dolly, or possibly  Brandi. The cap definitely matches and they do make mini sizes for sets & deluxe samples.

"Some of our subscribers will receive one of these products, which are each perfect for prepping a blank canvas."

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster

Ole Henriksen Tuth Crème Advanced Hydration or Total Truth Eye Creme

October 2nd, 2013

"All subscribers will receive at least one of these products, which are well-suited for making a big, bold statement!"

Best guess for these babies....Big Sexy Hair. Specifically the Blow Dry Volumizing Gel & Root Pump Stray Mousse.

October 1st, 2013

Sneak peek #2!

"It’s easy to create timeless works of art when you have these products at your fingertips. Some of our subscribers will receive at least one one of these products in their October Glam Bag!"

For the record, that horrible sentence is straight from Ipsy's Facebook page... Cringe-worthy.
But anyway! 

Here are my best guesses so far starting with the top left: 

Mica Beauty Mineral Eye Shadow in Twilight or maybe Royal. It definitely looks blue to me. Ipsy has sent the Mica Beauty Mineral Eye Shadows out before in Earth and Bronze, both of which I have. They look pretty similar to this!

Photo: The Oasis Overnight Eye Complex is an oil-free, intensive nighttime eye treatment to help diminish dark circles, puffy eyes & fine lines.

H2O Plus Oasis Overnight Eye Complex. Definitely looks like a good match AND H2O Plus posted this image on their own Facebook page right around the time the Ipsy spoiler was posted. Coincidence?

Still working on the white tube...I'm thinking lotion. Is that a coconut I see on the tube? I initially thought 100% Pure or Pacifica but none of them match that design. Will continue sleuthing!

Pixi Sheer Cheek Gel. Looks like a match and we know how much Ipsy loves to send Pixi!

Lip Pencil

Starlooks Lip Pencil, probably in Tickle Me Pink & Tipsy as they've previously sent out.

September 30th, 2013

First sneak peek is up on Facebook & it's a good one!

"All subscribers will receive one of these museum-worthy products in a precious shade!"

Looks like Zoya nail polishes from the Fall Cashmeres & Satins Collection!

SNEAK PEEK: Starlooks October 2013

The October Looksbook is up & it looks like the theme is called 'Alice.' WAY TOO EXCITED.
"It’s Falloween – time to break out your cutest jackets, boots, and hats and prepare your makeup repertoire with fall colors to match. This Starbox features pieces that can be used daily, and will also add that perfect touch to your Halloween Costume "

So pretty! I'm definitely seeing a PERFECT Fall blush, pink lip gloss and/or lipstick, black liquid liner, silver and brown/bronze eye shadow, and maybe mascara. This looks like it could end up being a great box! :)

SNEAK PEEK: Birchbox October 2013

Whoooo Birchbox Sneak Peek Video! :)
This month's theme is 'Beauty Buzz' so we'll be sampling award winners and celebrity favorites!

Here are a few samples you may receive in  your box this month:

Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion Skin Exfoliant: This powerful microdermabrasion treatment instantly brightens all skin types by gently buffing away dead skin cells, revealing radiant, healthy skin underneath. Over time, it even reduces the appearance of fine lines, acne marks, and discoloration. The best part? No appointment-making hassle or big spend necessary: The exfoliant is designed to mimic in-office treatments but can be used at home.

12 Benefits Instant Healthy Hair Treatment: This leave-in conditioning mist delivers a host of benefits to dry, parched hair—from boosting the vibrancy of your existing color to preventing future damage. Bonus: the light, clean scent lingers all day long.

Pop Beauty Aqua LacquerPop Beauty Aqua Lacquer hydrates as it delivers a hint of color for luscious-looking lips. Formulated with silica, it glides on with ease for an effortless application as jojoba oil and beeswax condition and soften. Its unique, spatula-like applicator evenly distributes color for a seamless finish. 

Beauty Queen 900x900
theBalm Stainiac: This two-in-one lip and cheek stain gives us a natural, understated flush and helps us get out the door faster. The gel formula looks dark in the tube but delivers a sheer tint. It comes in three shades that complement all skin tones: Beauty Queen is a magenta-toned pink, Prom Queen is a lovely rose pink, and Homecoming Queen is a dewy peach.

Cleanse & Polish™ Hot Cloth Cleanser
Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser:  This plant-based cleanser has a two-phase action. Phase one is the cleansing. Free from mineral oil, it has a rich and creamy texture and swiftly removes all traces of face and eye make up, even stubborn mascara. Phase two is the polishing. Polish off the cream using the pure muslin cloth to gently dislodge dead skin cells and help reveal clean, soft and radiant skin.

This month every subscriber will be receiving a 'Birchbox Find' in addition to their regular 4-5 samples!
