October is a tricky month for me. It’s the month of what is probably my favorite holiday of the year, but it’s also historically been a month where really bad things happened in my life. The preview for ipsy’s October bag caused a lot of worry among subscribers too, me included: the image featured one of ipsy’s gorgeous stylists in two different outfits and makeup styles, one a more classic look and the other simply outrageous in which she wore bright blue lipstick. A lot of subscribers immediately jumped on that one detail, declaring they would cancel their subscriptions if blue lipsticks were being sent out. it was all a bit weird–I don’t know why they thought that would happen.
