  1. Has anyone gotten the darker shade of eyeliner this month? All I see when I look at reviews is the golden/bronze liner (which I’m getting). I was just curious to see how people liked the dark purple/maroon (I’m not sure exactly) color.

    • I got the darker eyeliner. I like it. It looks more brown on me. I have dark eyes.

  2. Just so you know, the January glam bag is showing already!!

  3. This will be my last ipsy bag. Sick of sampling the same brands over and over again, angry that they clutter my Facebook page even though I’ve turned off social media multiple times…just over ipsy in general.

  4. I like Marsk eye shadow, but not the brown/bronze shades shown. I mean, really, how many “neutral” shades can one woman use? I personally would rather have roses and/or violets.

    • I agree with you. Anywhere I turn I see nudes, briwns, bronzes& smokey shades. I want some roses, rosegolds, blues, greens, purples! Don’t they know how hard it is to find a great , pigmented purple shadow? And lipstick, not everybody wants or wears reds or browns. I was disappointed a little last month. I even retook my quiz. I still have the same results.

  5. It’s the same brands over and over again. And these brands aren’t making me want to stay. Hopefully the rest of the bag will wow me. I know it’s just $10 a month but it would be nice for nicer/more popular brands to try.

  6. I DETEST Be a Bombshell, JCat and Hikari and use that exact word EVERY time I review, yet what do they sub items that got lost or broken with?

    Let’s just say when I had 4 bags coming to my household, we ended up with NINE “eye base” in “Submissive” and it’s basically shiny yet murky marbled brackish gold creamed mineral oil.

    They said it was like a primer initially, yet they subbed it for the beautiful, all natural bronze Mica cream eyeshadow, even though they had more, for ipsy points. So NOT fair! I loathe mineral oil, paraben loaded products and the three above are full of them!

  7. It sort of surprises (yet doesn’t surprise) me that Ipsy is still sending out Be a Bombshell/Hikari products. Bummer that they don’t listen to what their user base wants. I hope I don’t get that Hikari eye shadow.

    The Instagram pic is a little more promising. I’ve never heard of the Peek Beauty brand before, & now I’m intrigued.

    • I wrote in a review that i would cancel my subscription if I received another be a bombshell product and haven’t gotten one since. I loathe that brand. Every single item I got from them was crap.

      I like the bag for the month but I’m otherwise not impressed. I need to cancel. I’ve noticed that you tubers get amazing products, like the Laura mercier setting powder about a year ago and the colour pop eyeshadow recently but everyone else gets junk.

      • Oh, god. I got the Hikari.

      • I honestly don’t think that’s true. I have been getting IPsy two years and I sometimes get a tarte and sometimes get a hikari but for the ten dollars I think IPsy is amazing. I had birchbox and was getting only hotel shampoos and the sample selection was always sold out as well as curated boxes. IPsy sends out consistent lovely products even if you are not a beauty vlogger. Not everyone is as winner but overall the ten dollar price tag is awesome for what you receive in my opinion. Having subscribed to five beauty boxes for last two years I can honestly say IPsy and boxycharm are the best in the industry. And IPsy customer service has been great to me. They even listened to u when u requested no more bombshell so that’s a good thing right?

  8. Uugh no more brown eyeshadow sets!!! I’ve already received two from ipsy in the past 4 months.. I like them, but I’m really wanting something else… I need blush, lipstick or BB cream, concealer!!!
    No gloss or pencils either… I have sooooo many

  9. I desperately hope I get the Jelly Pong Pong mascara from the Instagram pic!! It’s an HG for me since it’s the only mascara I’ve found that stays put on my lashes.

    I’m also hoping a lot of them show up on the swap boards so I can trade for several. 😀

  10. Maybes a bluefish grey or some form of green. There are so many other colors besides the brown shades.

    • Seriously… I hate most brown eye shadows on me and I get a ton from Ipsy! Would love colors. 🙂

  11. I don’t need or want any eye makeup. I’m set for awhile. I got an eyeliner from them last month. I’m getting the mr write eyeliner from them already And I’m getting the eyeko in my bb. When do the full spoilers come out??

    • They’re out now!! I just saw mine!

      • Thank you Chrissy!!

  12. I hope I don’t get either Pixi Eye Shadow Duo or Marsk Mineral Eyeshadow, I have received them in past boxes and they are always the same boring brown shades.

  13. I’m hoping I don’t get eyeshadow. I already have more than I’ll ever use.

    • Same here.

  14. tired of these same brands :'{

  15. I think the only thing there I wouldn’t be delighted to have is the Pixi eyeshadow duo. The brow trio they sent me a few months back was probably my least favorite item I’ve ever gotten, so I’m a little gun shy with the brand, now. I have no issues with receiving mascara except that I have about five backups sitting in a drawer already with another one from a Target box on the way. Everything else intrigues me.

  16. I signed up but they put me on a waitlist. I don’t do social media at all, maybe it’s time to join the inevitable.

    • I have backup social media accounts that I use to post stuff from Ipsy or other things and get coupons occasionally. Those work just fine for a quick post to get you off the waitlist and don’t require you to give out any personal information.

    • After reading posts here regarding Ipsy’s waitlist, I emailed CS and told them that for personal reasons, I didn’t do social media and asked if there was a way to bypass the waitlist. I asked that they “please let me know either way so I can decide if I want to continue on their waitlist or subscribe to another service”.

      I was removed from the waitlist the same day.

      • I doubt your email had much to do with it. They want you to think advertising for them will get you on the list faster, but they also have an incentive to have as many people on the list as possible. I refused to do any of the social media and was off the wait list within an hour.

    • I’m dead set against advertising for companies on my personal social media accounts so I created a sub box specific account to post from. You can also write Ipsy customer service and politely let them know that you didn’t realize you needed a social media account to join. They will likely take you off the wait list.

      • When it asks me to post I just change privacy settings to only me. Nobody will ever see it and I don’t have to keep changing fbs

        • Me too.

          • Me 3 LOL ?

    • I set my facebook to the setting where no one sees the posts but me.

      • This is my only issue with Ipsy.

        I love the products, price , and the cute hook with the bags. My items are a great match to me every month.

        I don’t like the fact that to get a preview of my bag, I have to share Facebook or Twitter. I’m all for free advertising IF the customers want to do it, but all the ‘gentle’ nudging to post, share and invite seems unnecessary. If people are happy with the sub, they’ll share on their own, won’t they? (Sorry, I’ll get off my soapbox now.)

    • I don’t do social media either. I just hit the share buttons and “x” out. Works for me lol?

  17. Still not missing Ipsy at all, it’s a lot of repeats. But I like that it’s more full sized items compared to Birchbox. But every month I got another bronzer or mascara or eye liner which I don’t use. So I canceled a few months ago.
