      Ha! Me too!

    Whoa…Ipsy spoiler is early isn’t it…I wasn’t prepared!

    Of course, I am starting to rethink not only subscriptions, but buying in general. When I went to put something in my “stash” to use later, I realized how many products I have that I haven’t used. There’s even some that I have tried (like a lipstick that I apparently didn’t love but somehow felt I would 2 years later!!).

    So, I spent the entire morning “curating” my own subscription bags. Yes, each month I will receive an assortment of products including makeup, sunscreen, hair products, skin products, bath products, nail products, dust and other surprises. These will all come in their own lovely Ziploc bag which can be reused to dispose of a dirty diaper at some point!

    Some will be deluxe samples (like those Tan Towels I got in my Allure box who knows when) and some will be foil packets (which I saved because, well, I was going to use them for travel….apparently on a year long round the world cruise) and some will be FULL SIZE!

    I think I stopped at 8 bags because I then found another “stash” and freaked out a bit!

    I don’t know why I felt compelled to tell you (or anyone this) but I think admitting I have a problem is the first step (right??). LOL

    Truly, though, I really love your blog…it’s the first one I check each day and again before bed. Thank you!

      I think that sounds like a fun idea!!!I IT’s like a use it up challenge!

      I have enough samples and products for a trip around the world too. I’m such a hoarder.

    I’m excited about the Escape Monthly spoiler. This will be my last box with the Living Social coupon. I’m leaning towards continuing the subscription with the full box to receive all the products.

      I think that’s what I did! And if you e-mail them they will apply the 20% off lifetime discount for you.

    Jennifer, you being the queen of subscription boxes, could you help me understand the mysterious mess that is Ipsy? I joined in May. Immediately got a long convoluted email about “wait lists”. Since following you, I got the general idea, and was OK… until the chaos began.

    Sure, sellers sometimes are short-stocked, under-produce or their suppliers don’t come together in time for shipping. These are normal occurrences that most businesses try to avoid, not brag about. But either way, usually an estimate of delivery is given. Any business not run by kids knows how to calculate supply, demand, and such. But Ipsy’s reply to my further emails essentially was “at our discretion we send out a certain number.” That is called deliberately manipulating the supply to drive up demand and is usually considered unethical. But since this is a $10 box of makeup, I figured I’ll just be patient.

    However, subsequent communications revealed that, unlike any waiting list I’ve heard of, from opera tickets to garbage collection, it’s always, always simple “first come, first served.” Ipsy will not abide by that, they say. Then, yet another switch in policy leaving customers in the lurch, a cute email with bunny rabbits.

    At this point I’m really questioning the management’s business sense. The rabbits conveyed that you could “immediately” jump to the head of the wait list by getting a referral through Facebook. OK, now, do I understand? This means we’ve gone from a normal “first come, first serve” wait list, to a “maybe if we feel like it” wait list to NOW, “we refuse to ship a product we’ve promised to you unless you dig up a new customer for us.”

    NOTE: I have no issue with Facebook referrals. All these box companies ask for referrals to expand their clientele. BUT, that is different than issuing a threat, unless I get a Facebook referral (not just “like” but get someone to sign up), then I will be denied the product I was promised. This, obviously, is also unethical and possibly actionable by those at the bottom of the wait list who can never get moved up.

    I do not use social media. I am not on Facebook and therefore cannot “like” or refer. When I signed up with Ipsy, it was nowhere in the deal that I MUST be a FB participant or be relegated to an eternal wait list.

    In essence they are doing this, as I have not received the June bag, and the replies to my emails indicate (to me) that the business procedures normally adhered to in a well-run and ethical organization are lacking at Ipsy.

    Now, I could be wrong, I could be mistaken. Maybe someday a bag will appear on my doorstep. But I was crushed to miss out on June when I saw your cute picture and article on it. I AM A CUSTOMER, not a “PENDING” or “WAITING” customer. I want my merchandise and I am not joining Facebook.

    What is the solution? IF they were truly wait-listed, it would just take patience. But apparently they have supplies, and are making a deliberate choice to ration the distribution in the fallacious idea this will somehow increase their customer base. More likely, they will go out of business by antagonizing people and losing new sign-ups when Birch Box, a superior outfit in terms of management, operates with efficiency, no wait, and very fast communication.

    Sorry this is long, I wanted to give the details so you can judge if this Ipsy seems totally wacky in how they do business, or is this a feature of box firms in general? Many do seem started and run by amateurs. But how long am I expected to wait? If Ipsy themselves cannot answer….well, isn’t this odd? Thanks! Tracy

      When I signed up for ipsy (which was like two years ago), there was a waiting list and I think it took around 4 weeks or so to get off of the list. This was before they did the social sharing or whatever it is they do now. I am not totally familiar with it because I haven’t signed up for a new subscription. But from what I understand, you’ll eventually get off the waiting list just by waiting. How long that takes? I have no idea. There is a thread about it on Makeup Talk that is about just this:

      Sorry I couldn’t help more!
