  1. Welp IPSY, This is my last Bag!! Nothing I recieved again for the last 4 months has matched anything on my Profile! And I think the Glamglow is only going to a few select people! It was nice at 1st & now they are going downhill!! I have so many Mascera’s it’s not even funny!! Everything I say I don’t want they send?! So much for Beauty profiles! I’m just gonna buy the Full Size Glamglow & without Ipsy it’s going right back in my pocket!! Bye Bye Ipsy!??

  2. Second bag (purple) and I got the liner…boooo….I also got the hair oil which was the one product I was the most adamant against lol…next time I’ll pretend I really want the worst product so I don’t get it HA! I did get the Mellow lipstick and I’m happy about that I just hope it’s not the obnoxious color :p

  3. Glam Rooms are open!

    • I’m new to this, what’s a glam room?

  4. Ok so last month I signed up for Ipsy. I liked it alright especially for the price. My two college aged daughters both decided to sign up after seeing my bag. They are both on very limited budgets since they are putting themselves through college and hoped for great products at a great price. The two of them couldn’t be more different. One is a brunette with brown eyes and medium skin. The other takes after dad and is a blonde with green eyes and very light skin. Both filled out their profiles accordingly. They also both made sure they said they were not interested in bronzers or hair products. Today they both looked at their sneak peeks and they are both getting the EXACT same products which of course include bronzer and hair oil. Also they are both receiving the eye liner and I am getting the mascara. Wonder who is getting the Glamglow?

    • Oh yes and all 3 of us are getting the purple bag. Its cute but was hoping we wouldn’t all have the same. The spoilers are so great yet all of us have bags they are rather blah. Hoping future months improve.

      • Everybody gets the same color bag every month because it’s part of the theme. Don’t know about your daughters getting the same thing though.

        • Whoops. Just saw where they are doing different color bags this month. Typically all of the bags are the same.

      • Everyone’s preview has the purple bag, so I dont think that part’s accurate

    • I went and looked at the Ipsy site and people are posting pics of their previews…so far nit a single Glamglo…

      • Yep, not one Glamglow and in every pic people are posting all of the bags are purple. You only see the other color bags in Ipsy’s pics. Not to sound bratty, I mean its still def worth the $10 and the color bag is not that big of a deal. Its just that whats the point of the profile if two totally different people are getting the exact same things. Makes you feel like its not personalized like they claim. And while I didn’t expect each of us to get a different color bag, just seemed odd that with 3 colors we all got the same. It appears so far like a lot of people also received that color.

    • My 11 yo is getti g Glamglow…lol.

      • content://media/external/file/33146

      • Darn it I thought I was posting a screen shot. Anyway, she is getting the Glamglow, the smudge brush, the gloss snob lip gloss, and exfoliating cleanser. All of it is perfect.
        Everything has always been super appropriate for middle school age and if something sneaks it’s way in that isn’t….I get a treat for myself and swap something from my bag. Ipsy is actually the only way she gets make up at all.

  5. Mine also shows the purple bag. I also got the smash box mascara. I was just happy I didn’t get the eyeliner. I was hoping for the Glamglow too. Their spoilers were so great this month. I was really feeling positive and hopeful. This is the first time I’m feeling really bummed about my bag. This is the 4th month in a row that I got a brush. At least this months has cute whales on it.

  6. Well, it looks like I’m getting the purple bag with the smash box mascara! Everything else in my bag – meh!

    • Me too, Yuck another mascara and products I have no use for the bronzer duo, the eye shadow brush, lip treatment, and hair treatment. Not a great bag for me this month

    • Me too! I really, really wanted either Glamglow product. ?

      • If I get the GlamGlow, I’ll happily trade you for the mascara!

  7. Does any one know how to cancel Ipsy? I have followed instructions online..gotten email and clicked on the link. A screen pops up that my account will be cancelled, but they keep charging me and will not respond to emails…don’t know what to do?? Any suggestions appreciated. They sure have terrible customer service!

    • Also can you delete your bank account info from your profile?
      I know if you don’t do it by a certain time of month they will still get you for the next month.
      You can always message them on facebook and instagram and probably get and answer faster.
      Anyway my first step would be remove your card info from your profile. Then they HAVE to reach out to YOU if they want to bill you again. Also take screen shots of those cancellation pop ups to refer back to in case they don’t acknowledge it in the future. I never had a problem with Ipsy. They have been but great for me. But Beautycon and Scentbird….oh lordy….

  8. Does someone know when do you get the glam bag once you been charged?

    • Billing happens on the first of each month. Shipping starts around the 12th and continues for the next couple weeks. Some people get theirs earlier than others due to distance from warehouse, and some places ship sooner than others.

    • I have one bag that comes on the 10th, my other bag used to come almost at the end of the month because of when I signed up. I am really impatient. I canceeled and resubscribed on the 29th of the month and it comes on the 10th with the other one.

  9. Can’t wait to find out what is in my bag. I was upset at first last month because I didn’t want lipsticks but when tried I actually love them. Very great experience and look forward to it more and more each month

  10. Does anyone know the cut off to get the May bag or too late?

    • All I know is they ship bags during the middle of the month so I would think you have until then to order? Maybe the first week and a half into the month?

      • They ship mine on the 4th each month…they do it in waves all month. I copied this from the FAQ page…however if email customer service and say u really want May, they will send it.

        When will I receive my first Glam Bag?

        You’ll receive an email when you’re moved from the Waitlist to an active subscription, with details about when your first bag will arrive.

        Usually, if you’re moved from the Waitlist after the 1st of the month, you’ll get your first Glam Bag the following month. Sometimes we’re able to offer subscriptions after the 1st of the month for the current month.

    • The bill you the first of the month so I’d assume it was too late but I could be wrong.

    • They bill your first bag right away your second bag is on the 1st though.. I would think you could google it.

    • I first subscribed to ipsy around April 20th. It said My first bag would be may bag but actually they went ahead and sent Aprils right away. So I’m pretty sure you would receive Mays.

  11. I just don’t get Ipsy’s ridiculous marketing plan. When you sign up, you are put on a waiting list to receive the boxes. If you want to move up on the list you have to jump through their social media hoops. Why would I tell my friends how excited I am about something I haven’t received (and have to work so hard to get) and ask them to sign up for something they can’t get. Come on, Ipsy. Don’t take more sign-ups until you can ship the boxes.

    • I got mine the first month. Think I was on the waiting list for maybe a day lol

    • I felt the same way! So frustrating, all to get something I don’t know if I’ll even like. Took almost 2 weeks to get off the waiting list b/c I did not post on social media.

    • The waiting list is a scam, it does not exist. Not really, at least. I was so angry when I got to the end of the sign up, NOWHERE did it say there was a waiting list, so I was expecting to get my bag as soon as I put in my credit card info but bam, waiting list with the most ridiculous requirements. I promptly emailed them to cancel my order and delete my account. Instead of doing that, they bumped me off the waiting list and charged my card EARLY (like the beginning of February) for March’s glam bag. Did not ever reply to my email, haven’t heard from them since. They’re just lucky I liked my April bag enough not to jump straight to the BBB for fraudulent business practice. -_-

      • Forgot to mention, to bypass the waiting list you literally just have to email them saying either to bump you off the list (works half the time apparently) or ask them to cancel your order (works every time). I told everyone I know who signed up for Ipsy to do so and it’s worked.

    • Or you can e-mail them, tell them you’re uncomfortable with them having your credit card information and being on a wait list and that you want to withdraw your name. Then they’ll suddenly have a space open up the following month and you’re no longer on the wait list.

    • Just edit privacy on the post to “just me”. That’s what I did.

  12. I like quite a few of the options – yea!

    • Me too! Ipsy is doing better lately. And that bag – so cute!

  13. Ipsy could I please get the pink polish and pink bag

  15. I got the jelly pong pong blush contour duo last month.. It was just ok.. not very pigmented or very good for a blush/contour … more of an eyeshadow..

    • Yeah I have fair skin and it didn’t show up on me at all. Barely even went on the brush. Strange name, strange product.

  16. I really want some nail polish this time around.

  17. I like the brush, too.

  18. I would like to try the pink polish, I think it will be fun for summer. Group 1 seems to be a lot of things we have gotten from other boxes in recent months.

  19. Mehhhh. Kinda just want the brush haha
