  1. First time in almost 2 years that I have outright hated a bag and everything in it.

    * OFRA Peach blush
    * SKIN&CO Roma toner
    * Meg twin Polish Lovey and Dovey
    * Hikari honey dew
    * Colourpop eyeliner in that awful red

    Told ipsy not to even bother mailing it but of course they will.

    • Colourpop has red eyeliner?

      • Its more of a burgundy and it looks beautiful!!

        • Sounds pretty,I love their eyeliners.Hope they come out with some new spring color’s so I can add to my collection

  2. Ugh super disappointed with this months bag. I’m only three months in with ipsy and I seem to be getting the same color eyeshadow and a eyeliner in EVERY bag.

    I was *hoping* i’d get the colourpop since Ive always gotten a eyeliner no luck.. I’m super super bummed I didn’t get the lisa frank brush either. I’m sad πŸ™

    *Em Cosmetics – illustrative eyeliner brush tip ( yet another eyeliner)
    *Skin & Co Roma- Truffle Therapy Face Toner
    *Ciate London- Bronzer ( I HATE CIATE & HATE BRONZER, both unchecked on my profile )
    *THe Base by Laura Bingle- LB Cream
    * Peek Beauty- eye will stay naturally (another eyeshadow in the same colors)

  3. This is my second month with Ipsy, first month was a little blah. I loved the bag though because it matched my bathroom colors and looks good sitting on my counter! This one might make a cute clutch if it’s big enough.

    I’m kind of surprised I think my bag has a couple of things that no one else seems to have, I thought everyone got a variation of the same few things:

    * MintPear Vitamin C Serum (it’s half the size that retails for $99, wow!)
    * Elizabeth Mott Eyeshadow (looks too small to be useful as a highlighter)
    * EM Cosmetics Illustrative Eyeliner Brush Tip (can’t find any info about this anywhere)
    * touch in SOL No Poreblem! Primer (two small to be practical)
    *Lisa Frank Brush (requested, am so thrilled, idc if it’s worth $4 I want it!)

  4. I’m getting:
    * H2O+ Beauty Elements Keep It Fresh Cleanser
    * Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank Angle Blush Brush (requested)
    * TONYMOLY Liptone LipCare Stick in Rose Blossom (hoped for this after I read more about it)
    *The Base by Lara Bingle LB Cream in Beige
    *Ciate London Bamboo Bronzer

    Plus the super adorable bag! Another good month for me.

  5. Wohoo I got it to work,, I love my bag !!

    Tarte Lip Paint
    Elizabeth Mott Shadow
    Lisa Frank blush brush
    Theorie hair serum
    PS cosmeceutical nail polish

    • Oh wow! Great bag!!!

  6. hey does anyone know if ipsy gives you anything for your bday ?

    • Unfortunately no πŸ™

  7. My bag is just “ok” this time, which is fine ’cause the past few have been great lol. I really wanted that brush, but we can’t have everything!
    I’m getting:
    -OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush, Format Blush, or Rendezvous Blush
    -Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Glow Shimmer Shadow & Highlighter
    -EM Cosmetics Illustrative Eyeliner Brush Tip
    -POND’S Cold Cream Cleanser
    -Hey Honey Besame Mucho

    I really like this month’s bag design, though!

  8. I love trying new stuff. Mainly stuff I wouldn’t buy myself which is why I love this bag.

    But getting a shimmery copper eye shadow 2 months in a row is a little much. You think they would switch it up a little. I mean I like the color but there is only so much you need. Maybe I need to start saying I don’t like the color even though I do so I can get something new. Thoughts?

    • Won’t work. I emailed them because I have gotten 4 coppery eyeshadows in a row and I’ve consistently rated them low and said I hated the color. I have purples selected in my chart. This is what they sent to me: Thanks for writing. I’m so sorry to hear you’re disappointed!

      We try to feature a variety of product shades, and copper colored eyeshadows continue to receive rave reviews from many of our members. We understand that our members often have very different personal preferences, and we do our best to make sure that your bag fits your preferences as much possible.

      Though I can’t specifically opt you out of copper colored eyeshadows, I can make sure our ipsyMatch system doesn’t include any eyeshadow in your Glam Bags for the next 3 months. I want you to love what we send you! If you’d like to opt out for a different amount of time, write back and I’d be happy to help.

      If you have any other questions or concerns, just let me know and I’ll be happy to help.

  9. The tutorial doesn’t work for me .. Anyway I’ll wait for the 4/5.

  10. I’m getting:

    *OFRA Cosmetics Peach Blush
    *Hanalei Aloe Soothing Gel
    *Hikari Cosmetics Cream Pigment Eyeshadow in Honey Dew
    *ColourPop Cosmetics Crème Gel Pencil (requested either Best O or DTLA)
    *Hey Honey Besame Mucho

    Very disappointed to see I didn’t get the Lisa Frank brush. Okay, I suppose I’m partly to blame by also checking those two eyeliner colors, but the reason I did that was because I saw two different black eyeliners in the guaranteed samples, and I thought it’d be the easiest way to ensure I didn’t get either black liner. But I’ll probably buy the brush since it is pretty cheap.

    And I’m also getting tired of them only sending neutral eyeshadow colors. I’ve already got a ton of browns and neutral pinks, and I want other colors!

    • How do you know what you’re getting already?

      • Scroll down in the comments on this post to find the link to a tutorial on Imgur detailing how to do it. I do not currently have a dev tools add-on installed (which is surprising to anyone who knows me), and I can verify it works without needing an add-on in Firefox.

        • You don’t need an add-on… All you do is right click the photo of the bag itself and got to “Inspect Elements”

  11. I plan on putting together a gift basket for my pregnant friend with items in it for a pampering movie night. In the gift basket I’m going to put a couple movies, popcorn, candy, comfy pajamas, slipper socks and a fuzzy blanket. Inside the movie ticket makeup bag I thought it would be cute to put a sheet mask/clay mask, hair conditioning treatment, lotion, maybe a face serum with a couple nail polishes and file/ nail manicure set.

    • Love this! What a fun idea!

    • That really is a great idea!

  12. I’m getting:

    -OFRA peach blush

    -Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Glow shimmer shadow and highlighter

    -Theorie Marula Oil transforming hair serum

    -Adesse New York Cupuacu butter lip balm

    -Colourpop CremΓ© gel liner in Swerve

    Another great bag!!!

    • Love!!

      • Me too girl! Ever since I opted out of nail polish and hand cream and face cream my bags have been amazing!!

    • Please no blush or hair product. I am African American and the color don’t match. If we can’t get this together i would like to cancel my subscription. More products i can use for dark complexion.

      • Hey Annette not sure if you know this or not but you can email ipsycare or send them a DM on Twitter and request to opt out of up to 3 products either for a few months or for the duration of your subscription so if blush and hair products is something you can’t use, then email them regarding ipsymatch and tell them you’d like to opt out of those items from now on. I hope that helps you!

        • You can only opt out of one category.

          • No, you can opt out of 3. I opted out of nail polish and hand cream and face cream indefinitely and they gave me that option. Haven’t gotten any since before November when I opted out of them.

          • Correct, Jackie. You can opt-out of three!

          • The others are right, you can opt out of three!
            However, they’re slightly restrictive, you can’t say ‘no hair care’ and never receive a hair item again, but you CAN say ‘no hair styling products’ or ‘no hair masks/conditioners’.

        • That’s odd yet great for you! I just did it today and they said I can only opt out of one catagory?? πŸ˜• Oh well!

          • That is weird. They let me opt out of nail polish, eye-shadow, bronzer, & contour products. I havent received any November

  13. I’m getting:

    – H2O+ Beauty Elements Keep It Fresh Cleanser (2 oz size and great ingredients!)

    – Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank Angle Blush Brush (I didn’t choose this, but I was hoping I’d get it!!!)

    – Jesse’s Girl Liquid Eyeliner in Black (gets okay reviews, but meh)

    – TONYMOLY Liptone LipCare Stick in Honey Moisture (I requested this!)

    – The Base by Lara Bingle LB Cream in Beige (primer, toner, tinted moisturizer, SPF and bronzer in one – excited to try!)

    Overall, really happy with my bag this month, but would have loved another skincare item in place of the eyeliner. πŸ™‚

    • I won’t know until the 5th what’s in my bag:(

      • Someone posted a trick here last month that lets you see your bag early. I’ve done it twice and it works!

        • What’s the trick if I might ask …please

      • there is a trick to figuring it out, once you do it , is easy to remember

    • How do you know what you’re getting already?

        • Thanks!

          • Looks stressful at least to me who has issues with computers

        • I just tried this and I have NO idea about coding – it worked! SO awesome. Thanks!!

          • NP! πŸ˜€

          • I know nothing about it either, but it was fairly simple and fun to do

          • Me too!
            Although I have to admit I gave up on it last month and only got it to work after trying again!
            If anyone has trouble just copy and past that code, it kept crossing it out until then!

        • Thank you!! Just used this method, but yikes, my bag is such a bummer this month. πŸ™ Thankfully this is the first time the actual Ipsy bag makes the $10 worth it for me!

          I’m getting:
          -Luseta dry shampoo in potpurri (requested this as my second choice… was hoping for it as an ‘extra’ and have learned my lesson, ha)

          -Defy & Inspire wear resistant nail lacquer in Paradise

          -Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank angle blush brush (will swap, but the RV is super low)

          -Jesse’s Girl liquid eyeliner in black (NOPE)

          -TONYMOLY lipcare stick, flavor TBD (glad this is a universally useful item, I hope it’s great!)

          • Sadly, when you request 2 items they put it in the algorithm as “equal chance of either”. I had to specifically ask about this and then said what I wanted my fave choice to be.
            Just finally figured out the ipsy hack reveal today after the finding the link by google(saw it here after) and it worked! I tried it last month but it wasn’t until the more helpful one that it worked for me!

            I’m getting:

            Lisa Frank Brush (had hoped for but didn’t request)

            Elizabeth Mott Shimmer Shadow and Highlighter (I can always use more eyeshadow…for now!)

            Tonomoly Lip in Rose (Didn’t want, but it’s ok I guess)

            Dream by PS nail polish in a bland color…(yes, I hate bland nail polish, guess this will be gifted! )

            and lastly, the Aloe Gel I requested

            All in all a decent box, but somehow still disappointed – I didn’t think it would include three of the sample choice picks…. πŸ™
            I like having the surprise of non possible picks that were already revealed!

        • This won’t work for me. For some reason, I don’t have a “Phase 3”, I only have “Phase 2”.

          • That link won’t work until the 3rd of the month. When it says “come back on 6/5 to see what your getting” then it works.

      • You can Google “Tutorial on viewing Ipsy spoilers early using Google Chrome Developer Tools” — I tried posting the link, but the comment wasn’t automatically approved.

    • Oh, I should have requested the Tony Moly! I was hoping for it. Still, I’m very happy with what I’m getting:

      * Ofra Cosmetics Peach Blush
      * Elizabeth Mott Show Me Your Glow Shimmer Shadow
      * SKIN&Co Truffle Therapy Face Toner
      * Adesse New York Cupuacu Butter Lip Balm
      * Colourpop Creme Gel Pencil

      Looks like the blush and shadow samples are pretty small, but they’re products I’d like to try. I’m going to use everything this month — as usual.

      • I wanted that lip balm and toner… Jealous!

    • How do you know everything your getting already

      • Its a link above.

        Im getting:

        -touch in SOL No Poreblem! Primer

        -Hanalei Aloe Soothing Gel

        -Ciate London mini bamboo bronzer

        -Colourpop creme gel pencil

        -Naked Cosmetics Heavy Metal #4

    • This is my first bag and so far I’m in love with it!! I’m getting
      –H2O+ Beauty Keep air Fresh Cleanser
      –Elizabeth Mott Shiw Me Your Glow Shimmer
      –Glamour Dolls x Lisa Frank brush (I’m a 90s baby so Lisa Frank was my jam and my inner child is screaming!)
      –Ciate London Bamboo Bronzer
      — Hey Honey Besame Mucho

      😍😍

      • Sounds like an awesome bag! Make sure you review your bag and items each month — your bags will get better and better!

        • How do I review them??

          • After you receive your Glam Bag in the mail, go to the website and click on Glam Bag… It will show everything you received with an option to rate your bag and each item in it.

    • HOW do u request things?

      • You can email ipsy at support (at symbol) ipsy (dot) com, and let them know you want to opt-out of three categories from your profile quiz. Also, each month Liz posts several products to choose from for your next ipsy bag. You can email them at the same email address to request a specific item! πŸ˜€

  14. No longer get Ipsy, but I totally want to trade for that bag! Very cute! I love it!

    • Do you just want the bag? I will not use it and would be happy to send it to you πŸ™‚

  15. Everything looked great till I saw the Ponds cold cream. Seriously Ipsy??!! Ponds cold cream??!! I would be very upset if I received that!!

    • I’m with you girl, I’ll be Pissed if I get the Ponds!

      • I’m confused why everyone is upset about the ponds. I could be wrong but it looks like a good size product and it’s a cleanser which looks bigger than a lot of cleansers we’ve received.Its a product I’ve never tried and who says it can’t be a great one.

        • I use the ponds cold cream cleanser on the daily! It completely just melts your makeup away and leaves your skin so hydrated. Just dampen your face, smear some of this all over and wipe with a damp wash rag. Bam bye bye makeup and hello hydration! And a sample size lasted me like 3 months! I wish I was getting this. I’m almost out.

          • You know, I must agree with this. Ponds receives a lot of wrongful hate & mostly because people don’t know how to use it. No joke. Ponds is seriously one of the BEST makeup removers out there. It literally melts your makeup off your face without stripping it. And don’t let the trial size foil you. A little bit goes along way. Don’t knock it, till you try it.

          • Thank you

  16. I work for a movie theater so this bag is a YESSSS for me! Too cute.

  17. I love this bag!!
    I ended up not liking the pink march one much but that was my 1st ipsy bag so maybe my bar needs to be lowered bc that seems to have been a favorie.
    I can see why some wouldnt like this one though since it is a makeup sub and a ticket stub doesnt really have much to do with beauty and all. Except a pixilated envelope doesnt either and that one was a big hit..??

    Either way, i like where this is going and hope for new styles. Maybe one with 2 separate compartments πŸ˜‰, or a 3D shape so more things fit inside? (Bonus points for mirror on the bag, thanks πŸ˜‰)

    • Been with ipsy for years and it’s a balance between Hit! or Miss with the bags. Although I can say even when I have gotten an ugly bag the contents inside have rarely disappointed me!

    • I didn’t like the March bag either , I thought it felt cheap . A lot of people liked though . I’ve had ipsy for over s year , that was one of my least favorite bags

    • Honestly, I think the main problem with the bags is actually the customers. It’s a $10 a month bag with a heavy gearing towards younger audiences, and I feel like too many of the older members forget that and expect all the bags to be gears towards a mature audience, and then get annoyed when those ones still come off cheap. Personally I appreciate that ipsy tries to do bags for a mix of age ranges, and I don’t mind the more kitschy ones, I think they’re cute and fun. And of course the bags are cheap, it’s $10 a month and full of makeup, they wouldn’t make any money if they sent top designer quality bags out.

      • I totally agree! I’m 44, and I know what I’m getting into! πŸ™‚

      • good point, i guess its hard to focus on the makeup aspect of the sub bc its the bag that makes them really different than say birchBOX. And i can apprecciate the pink bag more looking at it from younger consumer perspective, and now know how to make it work.
        Either way, looks like i didnt resscribe in time and will miss ut on my ticket bag 😣

    • Lin, the bags are usually not exactly high quality, but they are also usually really small and mainly in just a few cuts they repeat over & over. The March bag was the largest I’ve ever received from them and very different than anything they’ve sent before. I find it one of the prettier/classier looking ones as long as you don’t inspect too closely. I love that they send lots of smaller ones though because they are usually fun, and they are so different I can easily use them to store small things and spot which bag is which inside a larger bag or drawer.

  18. Best bag yet, Ipsy! This bag is AMAZING and on-trend; it’s got a Anya Hindmarch/Kate Spade fun vibe! I requested the Mr. Bing liner as my #1 choice and the dry shampoo as my #2 choice, and they replied that I would get at least one of my requests… good enough for me. πŸ™‚ Now I’m pining for the Josie Maran and the Adesse balm; Ipsy is really killing it!

  19. I requested the toner. I’m thinking of using this bag for easter and put something special in it and have the kids try to find it and who ever finds it gets a special surprise.

  20. I think the bag is cute in the way that it could be used with kids to put together a treat bag for the movies, or it can be used as part of movie themed care package or date night or family night type of things. I think the usefulness for this bag extends from being a makeup bag.

    • I love all these ideas! I hadn’t thought about those! I was kind of meh about the bag, but you remind me there are some fun things I can do with it, and since I have all boys, this is one of those bags that I can use for their things too without it looking like a makeup bag. I keep toys in some of them. I am older and actually like most of the ipsy bags, even the cutsie ones, and the ones I won’t use are perfect for my nieces or friends that will love them. One of the big things about ipsy for me is the bags. I am totally organized with them!

  21. So adorable! I LOVE it!!!!

  22. Would love the purple luxie brush to go with all her pink friends 😍 And the Colourpop in either mr bing or swerve

  23. I scrolled right past the ticket, not realizing it was the bag design for the month! Not a huge fan, but it also looks like it might be a faux-leather material so it’s growing on me?

    The makeup options seem weaker this month too, but I am obsessed with skin care and I have super dry skin so I’d love to get some of those moisturizing options

    • I love the way the ticket goes with the theme–outcast? You’re “in” with ipsy.

  24. Where are the Target Beauty Box April Spoiler at????? No Target box this month??? Where are you insiders at Liz??? The ppl wanna know lol πŸ˜‚πŸŽ―

  25. One of the earlier spoilers had small orange raffle tickets in the background and if you’re going to put a date on a movie ticket for the April Ipsy bag, what other date would you put on it?

  26. Not a fan of the bag (still hoping it could be a joke) but an obvious good use of the bag would be to put any movie, concert etc tickets that you would want to save.

    • Love that idea!!! Def not going to happen but absolutely think that would be very clever or as another subscriber said make a golden ticket inside for one blessed subscriber!

  27. Ticket # is today’s date! Is this an April Fools joke?

  28. i will be upset if i get that 1 dollar ponds cream.. too much facal creams and lip stuff this month… very happy about the colur pop though

    • The ponds cold cream cleanser is not $1 and it’s so amazing! It removes all my makeup and hydrated my skin beautifully. I love that stuff!

  29. Thanks Ipsy for the April Fools joke! Very impressiveπŸ™€πŸ˜œ

    • If it’s an April fools joke I’m gonna be so sad haha. I don’t think it is though, the theme this month is carnivals.

    • That was funny πŸ˜‚

    • I wonder if it might actually be a joke … someone pointed out on Reddit that the number is today’s date backwards.

      • Hoping it is!! 😌

      • That would be funny if it was. I’m taking anything I see posted anywhere with a grain of salt today. I already received an email from Beauteque for a Going Out of Business sale, but toward the bottom they revealed it was an April Fool’s joke.

  30. It’s adorable! 😻

  31. I’m going to be bummed if I get the Ponds. My last two Walmart boxes had it, which isn’t a surprise in a Walmart box, but I expected something more fun from Ipsy.

  32. Ugg, not happy with this bag, big fail for me already and I haven’t even gotten it! Very sad because I just signed my daughter up for a bag last month too as a present she is 19 and definitely not going to like it either unless we get eyeliners and lip only lol the rest is way too much non makeup!!! Agree….ponds really?? I usually love every bag BIG DISSAPPOINTMENT! πŸ˜•

  33. I don’t like the bag

    • Me either.

      • Ditto

  34. Awe, I love this bag! So cute!

  35. I freaking love this bag!

  36. Loooooove this bag!!! So excited it’s not another boring bag, well done Ipsy.

    • Where is the bag in this post as I don’t see it!

      • It’s at the top. Red bag, says ticket on it.

        • LOL

      • That happened to me too for a few seconds since it looks just like a ticket I skipped it, lol.

        Anyway, I think it’s really cute!

  37. This is unrelated, but where are the Target Beauty Box spoilers? It should come out Monday but the items haven’t changed online. I chatted with a service rep and they said they were doing one this month though.

    • I was wondering the same thing! Spoilers are lacking this month.

    • They’re having 15% off all March Beauty Box items that ends tonight. I’m thinking that once the sale ends, the new items will go up to hopefully give us a little bit of a sneak peek tomorrow for Monday’s box.

    • I’m predicting they will be out Monday because last month’s coupons expire on Sunday lol.

  38. Ahhhhh! Love it!!! πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

  39. That bag is cute!!

  40. I love this bag, one of my favorites!

  41. Finally, I added ipsy to my subs! πŸ˜‰

  42. This bag is my all time favorite design. Just woke my boyfriend up to show him πŸ˜‰

  43. Fingers crossed for some good items! Many of the pictured I just received or an not in need of. Hoping for the Adesse & Ciate’ products!!!

  44. Sorry, but 2 hideous bags with one beautiful one in between. I’ll have two up for swap over on the site.

  45. i wish it was colored gold.

    it would have been ah-mazing if a handful of ipsy bags were golden tickets, those lucky finders would win a prize!!

    • That’s a great idea!

    • Yessss that would have been awesome ! Great idea

  46. This month looks amazing!! Not loving the bag, but the products look great!! πŸ‘πŸ˜

    • Me neither. It looks very stiff.

  47. Loveeee!!! Resubed…hope i get it πŸ€

  48. Want Josie and Luxie 😍

  49. Did they run out of ideas? I wish i cancelled.
