  1. Does Banana powder work for all skin types and complexions or just some?

    • I have very fair skin. I got a full size jar in a bag and I have used it as a highlighter after I put all my make up on. I put it just around my brow area, chin and nose.

  2. Looks like some nice skincare items this month, but pretty much all of the makeup would be a miss for me. So I’m prepared for this to be one of the meh 50/50 bags.

  3. Another black mascara? *yawn*
    I predict I’ll either get the Ofra banana powder, or the Besame powder….because I can’t wear either of them and that’s how my luck with ipsy usually goes.

    • I will trade you because I would love to have either of them. Haha

  4. Luxie brush and some polish and I’m happy.But please no ofra banana powder I akready have two that don’t wok for me.I have a few more if the items but would be happy to have more

  5. Has everybody noticed that they completely upgraded their profile page? They totally redid it with a lot more to choose from.

    • YES! I don’t know why it took them so long to ask people what kind of shades they would like to receive. I would love to receive eye shadow, for example, but I never marked it because I only wear very neutral/natural shades. Now I might choose eyeshadow since they added the color family feature. I’m very happy about this change.

  6. Has everybody noticed that they just upgraded their profile page? They completely redid it. A lot more choices.

  7. Hopefully my bag will be better this month. It was crummy in October.

  8. My top 5

    1- Better than sex mascara
    2-Luxie Beauty Luxie Rose Gold Small Duo Fiber Brush 524T
    3-tarte cosmetics maracuja oil
    4-NUXE Nuxellence DETOX
    5-BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes To Go

    I love the bag and i really have been wanting to try the better than sex mascara.

    • If you don’t get the mascara, we can exchange! 🙂

      My Top Wish List
      – Skone Cosmetics Brow Wand Eyebrow Pencil in Chocolate
      – Benefit Cosmetics the POREfessional face primer
      – OFRA Cosmetics Banana Powder
      – EYEKO Skinny liquid Eyeliner
      – Tini Beauty Eyetini Eyeshadow in Firestarter
      – BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes To Go
      – Lasting Smiles Lip Balm
      – Osmotics Cosmeceuticals Blue Copper 5 Firming Elasticity Repair

      What I DO NOT want to receive … again is
      – red lip anything
      – black mascara

      Seems I get those in every other bag, not matter how many times I change my profile.

      • What she said lol

      • I don’t need another mascara either. If I get that eyeko eyeliner this month, it will be the third time IN A ROW that I’ve gotten a black liquid eyeliner from ipsy. I got a red lipstick last month, so I don’t really want one this month. Hoping that I get the porefessional primer!

    • 1. Contour Stick
      2. Brow stick in chocolate
      3. Too faced mascara
      4. NFA52 matte stick
      5. Luxie small fiber brush

  9. Skipping this month, not into any of these products. Works out for me though because I grabbed a Target box. I guess I’ll be waiting for the December spoilers. 🙂

  10. I would be happy with anything I got this month. I can always use new makeup brushes. I love to try new eyeshadows and that one’s a good brand. Travel hairsprays ars always handy. I love getting mascaras, so I don’t have to go buy it. I have lots, but new brands are fun to try. I love red lipstick. I wear it all the time. I really only wear black liquid eyeliner. Primers are always good to get. I have never of Ghost Oil. That would something interesting to try. So with 7 accounts, I have a good shot of getting a lot of this stuff. They already took all my payments out.

    • 7 Ipsy accounts? Oh my!

      • It’s worked out quite well for me. I haven’t had to buy anything at the store for almost a year. I also have birchbox too. I have to pick up my medication, basically that’s it…nothing else.

        • I’m sure you have looked before because you already have BB, and so many Ipsy accounts, but what about Boxycharm? This month was great and the next one looks promising too.

          • I will have to look into it. I was going through my make up last night, trying to organize it all. I couldn’t how I had. I have one of those big hope chest boxes storage boxes. It’s completely full. I need to go through and just organize it all.

    • Ah, so *you’re* the reason I’m still on the wait list? 😉 J/K

    • 7 ipsy bags? I’m not judging-just jealous! 😉

    • I am impressed with the 7 bags! It sounds like since you are a red lipstick and black winged liner person, you are the *perfect* person to get that many bags.

  11. I wish for..
    PURLISSE blue lotus
    Starlooks rose gold eye
    Benefit primer
    Better than sex mascara
    Eyeko eye liner
    Love the bag too…

  12. I’m seriously hoping that I get the BH Foil Eyes To Go, Ofra Banana Powder, Elizabeth Mott Lips Are Bad and Tarte Maracuja Oil!

  13. I love the bag. I can always use hairspray. I never have time to go to the store to buy it.

  14. All the products look great this month,

  15. I love that bag! I really liked the October one too.

  16. I’m torn between rejoining Ipsy or BB. Ipsy seems to have stepped up it’s game more the BB lately. Whomever’s spoilers don’t involve mascara (I have a surplus of minis I haven’t used yet), might be the winner. I do love that Ipsy has finally customized the profile quiz.

    • Bb took away points for reviews only get points for purchasing something. .js

  17. If I subscribe today, will I get November bag or December?

    • I actually did. I opened up an middle of the month and about 10 days later about a week later they sent me a bag.

    • I resubscribed today and it hasn’t charged my card yet so I’m curious if will be November or December too.

      • I re-subscribed on the 1st and I emailed them to let them know to take money out of my account. It now says I will receive the November bag. So excited!

      • I think if you subbed after the 1st, you may not get a November bag unless you contact customer service — but if you do they should hook you up. That was my experience in October.

  18. Ooh! So much good stuff! I see some sneaky repeats in there though. I managed to avoid the Starlooks cream eyeshadow the first time, but now that I’ve received 2 as extras in swaps, what are the odds I’ll get one in my bag this month??

    • I actually love that stuff and didn’t think it would work. For me the trick is to put it on just the lid after setting with powder shadow and not over-applying, then blending it right away. If I put it on thick and don’t blend, it shows lines. Or just a dab in the center of the lid is nice to highlight. I like to put it on like eyeliner the best, and that way I don’t need to blend it and can enjoy the bright pop of gold.

  19. Looks like some great items! FYI, cake beauty hand creams are divine and BH cosmetics are inexpensive, they have great deals and their lip liners are excellent! I’ve been thinking about dropping one of my subs and adding an additional Ipsy to my current account. My favorite subs lately have been Sephora play and Allure. For some reason I received two Allure boxes this month and both of them were superb.

  20. If I could magically have my choice, here is what I want:

    Benefit Porefessional Primer
    SKIN&CO Roma Truffle Therapy Eye Concentrate
    NAOBAY Renewal Antiox Eye Contour Cream
    Adesse Brightening Base Coat

    Dark undereye circles and large pores are my biggest issues, so I especially hope for the primer and eye creams. For a 5th item, I would be happy with one of the setting powders, a red liquid lipstick, or the eyebrow/eyeshadow options EXCEPT for the OFRA Banana Powder. What a weird eyeshadow color, and it looks similar to my skin color. The selection is pretty good this month, so I hope I don’t get a bunch of stuff I don’t want, like skincare that is horrible for oily skin.

    • Banana Powder isn’t an eyeshadow lol. It’s to set the under eye area or places on the face. It’s pretty sheer so it’s not like having bright yellow on your face. It’s pretty much the same thing as the middle shade in the KVD Shade and Light pallette or Ben Nye’s Banana Powder.

      • Good to know! I still don’t want it, haha. I have one Ofra eyeshadow I haven’t used yet cause I have no palette to put it in, and I don’t want it to open it till I have a good container for it.

        • I got one like that it is an eyeshadow/highlighter and I love it it’s so pretty and versatile I hate I let it sit so long because i love it

        • I know! I FINALLY got a magnetic palette to put samples in. So happy! It made me wish I had made something sooner or even glued my samples into a mint tin or onto the lid of something so I could have used them more already.

  21. Wow! Love it all except pūr~lisse, I’m on overload with this item. Really want the foiled eye shadow no polish if possible, all the sudden I am a China Glaze girl only.

  22. Masks! I want masks! Any of the brushes and either of the mascaras but I really have been wanting to try the better than sex mascara.

  23. Bag is cute! If I get mascara or brow products I may cry, seems to be all I get from Ipsy lately. I really want the moisturizers and some finishing powder.

  24. My Ideal bag would be one of the masks, the nail polish/base coat, peppermint lip balm, cake hand cream and the beauty kitchen skin polish. Buuuut we all know that wont happen, I’m REALLY hoping for the nail polish and the lip balm, crossing my fingers!!

  25. Really cute bag this month. Most of the products are meh.

  26. Please no more liquid eyeliner. I review them every time and tell them I hate liquid eyeliner. I would really like the BH eyeshadow, the ModelCo light brown brow pencil, and any of the peachy powders, either blush or highlighter. I’m also always good with nail polish, brushes, and lipstick, although I don’t love red lipstick.

  27. I’d love to get many of these items. Hoping to not get moisturizer, red lip colors, nail polish, or masks; I’d be happy with everything else.

    I’d love to try the primer and setting powders.

  28. A lot of good here! Best bag would be: POREfessional
    Osmotics cream
    Elemis Marine cream
    Hey Honey Serum
    Absolute NY Matte Stick
    Skin&Co Eye Concentrate
    But really, any bag without eye make-up or nail polish!

  29. I hope I Get the Cake Beauty hand cream. I love the way their products smell.

  30. Less things I want than last month. Of course not a single want from last month is available. I got nothing I wanted last month and if this month is the same I need to drop Ipsy again.

    I would like the Besame, the two faced mascara, the cake hand cream, the eye shadow pallet, and either lip balm, sheet mask or brush.

    Probably another zero and I will in give up on Ips

  31. WoW fantastic month!!!!

  32. I love the gold bag!
    I’m really hoping to receive:
    pūr~lisse Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer
    Leaders Cosmetics USA Aloe Soothing Renewal Mask & Aquaringer Treatment Mask
    Bonvivant Bonvivant Botanical Pure Masks
    Hey Honey Good Morning Honey Silk Facial Serum

  33. I feel like this is a great month! I’m hoping for the gold bag, but would be happy with either.

    Also, the only samples I’m hoping to avoid are the brow products (because they don’t look like they’ll match me) and the contour stick (looks too warm for my preferences). My dream bag would be:

    (gold version of the bag)
    – Bésame Cosmetics Brightening Vanilla Face Setting Powder
    – EYEKO Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner deluxe in Black
    – Verb Ghost Oil
    – Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
    – NUXE Nuxellence DETOX

  34. Nice options this month. Here’s my dream bag this month:

    The Balm Mad Lash Mascara (the only “headliner” I haven’t tried)
    Verb Ghost Oil (still looking for my HG hair shine product)
    Skin & Co. Roma Eye Truffle Therapy Eye Concentrate (I LOVE eye treatments)
    Pur-lisse Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer (one of my favorite skin lines)
    BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes to Go (this seems really fun!)

    Honestly, though, one of my favorite things about ipsy is the chance to try the stuff I’d never think to buy, so I’ll give whatever I get a shot. Can’t wait to find out what I’m getting.

  35. Another cute bad design yay! I’m hoping for the navy/gold bag as well. I wear mascara everyday so I never get enough. I hope I get one this month.

  36. My ideal bag would be:
    – The Balm mascara
    – Elemis Marine Cream
    – Skin & Co Eye Concentrate
    – Verb Ghost Oil
    – Osmotics Firming Cream
    (I notice I rarely get anything I list in my ‘ideal’ bag, but it’s still fun to go through and pick my favorites. 🙂 )

    It’s cool to see they’re offering Indie Lee products! I’d list that and the Tarte oil, but I already own full-sizes of those products (but I’d be more than thrilled if I got those in my bag too!). As alternatives, I think it’d be cool to also receive Cake Beauty hand cream, Hey Honey serum or the Naobay eye cream. Clearly I’m a skincare junkie. 🙂

  37. I’m the opposite of most subbers, as in I love to get mascara and eye liner. I have a 16 year old daughter that goes through both like they’re water. With that being said, I hope I get the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (one of my daughter’s favs), the Eyeko Liquid Eyeliner, Model Co. Contour Stick, one of the brushes, and the Lasting Smiles Lip Balm.

  38. Please Ipsy send me the bag with Tarte maracuja oil. I would love to try it!! I wouldn’t be mad at the Benefit face primer either!!

  39. Cute bag designs! Last November was space themed also. I’m hoping for the black & silver one! Looks like some good samples too. My dream bag would include the following:

    1. Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (I have been wanting to try this for months!)
    2. SKIN&CO Roma Truffle Therapy Eye Concentrate (truffles so fancy)
    3. Hey Honey Good Morning Honey Silk Facial Serum
    4. Bésame Cosmetics Brightening Vanilla Face Setting Powder
    5. Adesse New York Brightening Base Coat

    I need that Adesse base coat. Anyone have any recommendations of good base coats to use? Or how to get rid of yellow nails? The one I bought from Revlon made my nails peel! So I didn’t use it this last time I painted my nails and the polish turned them yellow! That has never happened before so I think that Revlon base coat really messed up my nails. 🙁

    • OPI has really good base & top coats. My polish has always stayed the most intact with this brand compared to other. 🙂

      • Thank you!

    • Essie Grow Stronger base coat is my HG as a nail polish addict with 300+ polishes. Their gel effect top coat is in my top 5, too.
      Easiest way to get rid of the yellow is to scrub your nails with a baking soda and peroxide paste with an ols toothbrush. Hope all this helps.

    • When I stain my nails, I use cuticle oil all over the nail and leave it on until absorbs, it leaves the nail bright and clean. I am guessing any runny oil would work well.

    • When its time to change my nail polish I take it off on Friday evening, leave my nails clean until Sunday and polish! I find giving them some breathing time helps a LOT. Mine don’t get yellow anymore, since doing this. There are some times where I don’t wait the whole weekend, since I have plans – but try to give them as long as possible.

    • Thanks everyone! Going to try these suggestions out tomorrow. Wish me luck!

      • I’ve tried about every home remedy there is because I always wear dark polishes that stain my nails yellow, and I think the the easiest, fastest way I’ve found is to just buff off the top surface of my nails with a non gritty nail file, and it also helps get rid of any ridges.

  40. Not too excited about anything. But id be sooo happy to get a brush! Any brush! Never do but i always hope! I would also like to try that benefit primer, tarte face oil, one of the setting powders or any brow product and unlike most people im always happy to get mascara and nail polish.

  41. Not much a fan of mascara as I’m on overload as many of the other beauty subbers are, however if I am going to get one Too Faced is a great one to get. I have a full and sample size of the Benefit Primer but I love it and use it everyday so I’m happy here too.

    If I had my say, I’d get:

    *Benefit Porefessional Primer
    *Truffle Therapy Eye Concentrate
    *Ciaté London Liquid Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in Diva
    *BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes to Go
    *Indie Lee CoQ-10 Toner

  42. Hmmm – I can’t say I’m really wanting to try any specific item in that lot. I’m always happy with brushes so I do hope I get one of those – other than that I think I’d feel pretty indifferent to anything else.

    I’m also kind of disappointed in the bag design, I was hoping for just stars – I don’t really like the make up constellations.

    Womp, womp. Might be time to take another break from Ipsy.

  43. I want the brow pencil and brown eyeliner! I’m sure I will not get them : ( I should just order a second bag, but I definitely do not want duplicates.

  44. Everyone update your beauty questionnaire. Totally new. New brands. Some new products. AND PREFERENCE FOR COLORS AND SCENTS FINALLY. You can click all of the color options you’re okay with it’s not a one only.

    • Oh Wow! Thanks for letting us know Cat! I’m heading there right now!

  45. As long as I don’t get nail polish, purlisse or red lippie i will be happy. The bag is a nice design too.

  46. Last month had me worried that Ipsy was headed downhill, I thought the items were more of a “free gift with purchase” types of items. This month, though, reassured me and looks great! Excited!

  47. There’s nothing in the original spoiler – two mascaras and a primer – that really wows me, but it’s all stuff that I’d use…eventually…when I get through the mascara and primer samples I already have…

    On the other hand, sheet masks! Nail polish! And that Cake Beauty hand cream is awesome. Bring it, ipsy! 🙂

  48. I see lots of great items I would love to try, but chances are I’m going to get mascara, a brow pencil and the hairspray because those are all things I never use. I may be canceling my Ipsy subscription after I get this box.

  49. OMG! I want that BH Cosmetics Foil Eyes To Go! It’s actually pretty.

    • I have the full size palette and it is excellent quality!

  50. Wow, this is my favorite bag design to date!

    • It’s such a cute design! I want both versions! 🙂

    • And did you see that cute little star on the zipper? I think I look forward to the bags more than the contents lol.

    • I agree this bag is adorable! ?⭐

    • I’m hoping for the navy/gold but this is the cutest bag design ever.
