  1. Anything but the mascara please!

    I still haven’t opened the Smashbox one from last month, and I have at least 3~4 full sized mascaras to sample 🙁 At this rate, everything will dry out before I get to use them…

    Also, ipsy is not letting me get sneak peek.
    It’s so weird, they keep sending me back to the “share comment” page.

  2. If I get the shadow palette and anyone wants to trade, let me know. I now have 5 shadow palettes all the same EXACT color. I love the colors, don’t get me wrong. But the fact that I now have 5 of the glittery bronze color is driving me nuts.

    • I have the e.yebRow shadow never used.They neve.r send me eyeshadow,. Lots of brushe.s tooo.!what were you looking for?

  3. I knew it..I got that model co lip liner. Pacific might be ok depending on the shade. Mask for dry I have combination skin on my profile. another shadow primer..ugh and the only thing I am happy about is the lip scrub.

  4. There’s another tarte I won’t be getting. Probably mascara, the model co or eyeshadow. ugh

  5. I will be getting my very first ipsy bag in December. After I signed up though, I thought about it… Is this really a great subscription service? I love the idea of a new make-up bag every month. But, the products are just deluxe samples- which I get a ton of from Sephora. I have a Boxycharm subscription, which I love so far. What do you guys think? Will I love Ipsy?

    • Well, it’s not all just deluxe samples. I tend to get at least one full size product or a tool every month – sometimes one of each. They tend to be drugstore brands or at least brands in the same range, though. At least in my experience, that’s what is sent.

      Personally, I like Ipsy better than Birchbox for a very simple reason – skin care. I do not, will not and actually cannot change my skin care routine due to a past bad reaction that makes me react to most products. There are two very common ingredients that set my skin off – bad. Because I have ‘skin concerns’ in my Ipsy profile left blank, I don’t get skin care products except for maybe once in a blue moon. With Birchbox, I seem to get at least two skin care products every month no matter what. So really, it depends on what you *don’t* want as much as what you *do* want and if you can find a way to tweak your profile to get close to those goals whether or not you’ll like any subscription – including Ipsy.

      • I want to thank you. I too have skin problems and react to most skincare products. I had unchecked all skincare products from my profile,and have even emailed Ipsycare to no avail (they didn’t even respond). I receive at least one skincare product every month from Ipsy. I end up having to give it away. I never did uncheck skin concerns from my profile-but now I did thanks to your suggestion! I’m again getting a cell stimulating facial mask that I probably cannot use. The only face wash and moisturizing lotion I can use is Cliniques moisture surge line.

    • I really like Ipsy because as the user below said they actually listen to your feedback about what you want and don’t want. It’s just my personal opinion that lots of subscription boxes are just more ways of giving out your personal information by taking surveys (they call it reviewing products) which I think thats all Birchbox is because my box never changed. Plus birchbox cancelled my subscription for no reason and their customer service didn’t want to help me resolve the issue. That really left a bad taste in my mouth. Ipsy is way worth the $10. I always find a use for the bag they send every month too.

      • Thank you for the info. I have been a little unsure of whether or not to do it.

        • I don’t get full size products very often. The quality of them varies some are great others not so much. Birchbox’s point system is the best! I got the Chi travel set for less than $20 with points and discount code.

      • They actually don’t do a very good job with your preferences. I subscribed for almost two years (just cancelled in November) and I specifically said no lip products and almost every month got one if not TWO products. Also one month I received 4 eye products. I also noticed they are doing a lot of drugstore brands now where in the past they didn’t. I use to love the sub but became frustrated with what they sent me. If you are new to subs you will probably like it for a while anyways!

        • How did you tell them no lip products?! I just signed up this past summer and the majority of everything I’ve gotten since July has been eye products. Eye shadows, eye liners and now the one mascara. I got tweezers even one month, lol. I would love to say no to eye products! I don’t have them checked in my profile and I have nail polish checked off plus I give bad reviews for the eye make up but they still send me 2 eye products a month and I haven’t received one nail polish yet. I would love to get one nail polish every month like some subscribers get. I emailed Ipsy and the guy who answered my email said I was doing everything right and to make sure I review everything (I do, don’t worry Ipsy) and then had even checked my profile to make sue nail polish was checked as an item I loved and of course it was. I’m hoping that when you email they note it in your profile and that that helps, lol. I wish that when you reviewed things you could answer a yes/no question about if you wanted to skip that type of item for a few months. They could say you can only skip for 2 or 3 months and only once in a 6 or 12 month period or something to that effect. That way the customer is happy but Ipsy still doesn’t get stuck with a ton of something bc everyone is skipping it for all of eternity.

  6. I’m crossing every finger and toe I have in hopes that I don’t get another mascara! I have three subscriptions. I’ve had them for about 6 months for two, four months for the other. I get at least two mascaras every other month. September I got one in each box! I love trying new ones, I found my holy grail in Birchbox! But they are taking space up and I need to get through them all.

  7. That is definitely the tarte finishing powder. I’ve learned that the ipsy content tends to mirror what we have as gift with purchase in my store. Enjoy everyone xoxo

    • What store are you referring to? Just curious…

  8. Im hoping for that trio or lipliner !!!

  9. I’m always down for nail polish – except Julep, as I buy all their polish nearly every month anyway. I would be thrilled with any eye makeup as well – except mascara. I hate, hate, hate most mascara. I’d rather pop on a pair of lashes than wear most mascaras. So if anyone gets a polish and really wants a mascara, I’ve got plenty of them floating around here that I can’t even try because I keep snarling at them. 😉

  10. I love getting mascaras in my subscription boxes the reason why is because they are smaller size and you use them up before they have a chance to dry out like the full size ones plus you get to try different kinds.

    • I totally agree with this…I LOVE getting minis.

  11. Not more brown eye shadow! Brown eye shadow is good, but ipsy has me pretty stocked up on it for quite awhile. I’d be happy with any of the other items pictured though. 🙂

    • This will be my 5th bag, and I’ve received bronze/brown shadow or liner in literally every single bag so far (one of them had a bronze liner AND that little pot of bronzy shadow that I think everyone got). My sisters are happy, but it looks terrible or invisible on me. Please lord, no more.

  12. I received the it cosmetics mascara in a previous bag and it was awful. I had to throw it away after two uses because I couldn’t get a decent looking application. Everything else looks good though! I’d be happy with any of it.

  13. There are some spoilers on iamKareno’s snapchat. The bag looks nice! From the snaps I see the red glam bag, a blue beauty sponge, and she mentioned some kind of scent from so nude cosmetics.

  14. It’s awesome sneak peak ! I loved my November bag ! I’m hoping for the lip liner or the tarte powder ! I already got the IT Mascara in my october bag, it’s not my favorite mascara…I’ve never try the benefit

    • The benefit mascara looks amazing but you have to scrub hard to remove it. I think I went through a bottle of remover in a month because of it.

  15. The Peony trio looks like a repeat of the Nyx <3 Ipsy trio (which was absolutely useless) and another mascara? I cancelled my bag after this past month and I don't think I've made a bad call!

  16. I just found this info on another page the tarte product could be
    ~tarte Amazonian clay waterproof brow mousse / Amazonian clay waterproof cream eyeshadow or Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Finishing Powder (not sure which)

  17. I’m really surprised that they are offering mascara as one of the main items again. I would love to try the IT mascara, but some people got it October’s bag, and then everyone got some this month. I’ve only been with ipsy since April but I’ve never seen them duplicate the main item like this before

    • Maybe only new subscribers will get the mascara.

  18. I would be happy receiving any one of these! I normally don’t get excited about nail polish, but Formula X has become my new favorite. I had a random bottle of it sitting around and had a pedicure with it. It lasted FOUR weeks! I then had a manicure with it and it lasted a full week — which is a miracle on me as I usually destroy manicures in short order.

  19. Nice!! I hope I get the ModelCo Lip Liner since next month will probably be my last ipsy bag:( I’m sad about it but I have to let it go for awhile. I’m swimming in samples and want to finish them at least by half before I consider coming back to ipsy. Lol! I’m also getting rid of Birchbox. Already cancelled Essence Beauty Box, Julep, Bare Box and Cocotique. I’m only sticking with GlossyBox because I bought the year deal on Gilt City, LipMonthly and possibly Boxycharm if I like what I see for December. Good luck everyone and Happy Holidays! ?????

    • I hope I get the Formula X nail polish. I hear you with the samples. I organized my room the other day and I just have so much to use up. Thankfully it’s Christmas soon and I can give away some of the stuff; but what will I do mid-way through next year if I keep it up…

      I ended up cancelling my Sizzi, Topbox and Glossybox. I will cancel my Ipsy after next month since I redeemed points for an eyeshadow brush.

      • @CT I still have to organize my closet. I’m done with my room and restroom but my closet is a whole different world! Lol. I will be giving some stuff away too for the holidays:) And I hope that next year I have more self control with subscription boxes ? Happy Thanksgiving!?

        • @Araceli I get overwhelmed looking at all of mine so I need to control myself also hehe! Thank you, Happy Thanksgiving to you also 🙂

  20. Oh thank you! I would love any of these-probably least excited about the shadow colors, but I’d still like to try them because of the natural-leaning formula! Wow what a great spoiler. I LOVE IPSY! Thanks again!

  21. I would LOVE that lip liner… Absolutely adore lip liners. I got the liner last month from glossybox and it is perfection!
    Would also be super happy with the tarte mystery item, or the eye shadow. Just not nail polish or mascara again!! got 4 nail polishes from ipsy already, despite begging them to stop sending them to me….

  22. I have that shadow trio (don’t remember where I got it from, but it was recent) and it’s gorgeous. Hope I don’t get it again, or the mascara. Other than that, everything looks good!

  23. I like the box looking forward to it.

  24. They all look fantastic! Yay! Last December was pretty blah at ipsy – this one looks to be great! Happy camper here.

  25. Yay! I like all these options 🙂

  26. I love the choices. If be happy with any of them. My least favorite would be the nail polish. I’ve been getting a lot of them lately.

  27. please please please be the IT cosmetics mascara! D’:

  28. I love that IT cosmetics mascara!

    • For the love of god please dont let me get another nail polish

      • I’m so bent out of shape that these spoilers show we have TWO chances to get another doggone mascara from Ipsy this month! Enough mascara in sub boxes, already!

        • Amen to that sister!
          If I get another freakin’ mascara, I will blow up!
          It’s been 5 months since I started subs, and already I have like 8 or 9 mascaras, I swear I will never need any more mascara till I die.
          Also, if it’s the nail polish, I’m unsubscribing from Ipsy 🙁
