  1. I love the bag design this month!
    I will be getting:
    *Doucce Freematic Blush in #49 Zen Orange
    *NUXE Nuxellence DETOX
    *Skone Cosmetics Brow Wand Eyebrow Pencil in Chocolate
    *theBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash Mascara
    *OFRA Cosmetics Banana Powder

    Not too bad this month and I am SO happy that I (FINALLY) do not have nail polish in my bag.

    • Me too. Thank god i didn’t get nail polish!

      • I am getting 4 of the same one.

        • I am getting 4 emerald green nail polishes. I don’t wear green nail polish. I wear purple that turns blue. Guess, I will just have to try it out!

          • Oh that sucks! I hope it works out for you! I wear press-on nails by Impress Press-On Manicure so I don’t need nail polish. Also, I don’t have the patience to wait for it to dry 🙂

          • At least it’s an Autumn color. It’s got gold in it. I might be able to make it work with outfits I wear.

    • LUCKY! LOL

    • As someone who has been very outspoken about my dislike for many of the Ipsy bag designs, I just want to say that I like this month. It doesn’t look like it came out of the kids aisle at Toys R’ Us but it’s still fun and sparkly.

      I’m getting:
      -Doucce Freematic Blush in #49 Zen Orange
      -Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
      -ModelCo CONTOUR STICK
      -SKIN&CO Roma Truffle Therapy Eye Concentrate
      -tarte cosmetics maracuja oil

      I’m SO happy I’m not getting any Ofra products. Totally awesome if they work for you, but I find that the eyeshadows are really really really low quality (MONDO fallout, chalky texture, travels all over your face, and barely sticks to your skin because it’s so coarsely ground-it’s literally like kids makeup).

      • Has anyone tried this Doucce brand? I love getting blush but U looked them up and they only seem to sell this brand at Wal-Mart, and the price point is $5-10. This terrifies me a bit. I’m always really bummed out when I get a cheap-o off-brand drug store item. 🙁

        • I’ve gotten them from Wantable. They are very soft!

        • Yeah, I am getting 3 of that. I am hoping it’s a good brand. I have never heard it. I usually wear pinks.

          • Yep me too. Were did you pop out of

        • I haven’t used them myself but I know they had a Doucce mascara in the boxycharm a couple months ago. When I look up the brand’s website the full size blush is $28 so hopefully it’s nice since this will be my third month in a row getting blush

        • Just enjoy, don’t use the blush if it terrifies you a bit. Have fun, this is just fun

          • I got 5 of my bags today. One of my bags had the doucce blush. I am still waiting for two more. I just recieved the matching eyeshadow in my allure box. I couldn’t believe how tiny it is. The eyeshadow I got was even smaller. I got two of my nail polishes. They are tiny. I got both colors in the bags.

        • I looked the blush up on Amazon. Amazon is selling it for 28.00.

          I got my Allure box the other day and it had a brown doucce eyeshadow in it. It’s a good thing I like to wear brown eyeshadows everyday, because that’s all I ever get.

        • When I looked old the Doucce website the blush was going for like $28

      • I have ofra’s havana lipstick. It’s so thick. It’s purple, but because of the texture it almost looks blue. It drives my mom crazy when I wear it.

    • Awesome

    • This is the exact bag I’m getting as well! Pretty pleased with this month.

    • Yes y

  2. I got the following:
    *Ciate London Liquid Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in Diva (dark red, not for me)
    *Eyeko skinny liquid eyeliner deluxe in black
    *Benefit the porefessional primer
    *Hey Honey silk facial serum
    *the Balm mascara

    I’m not thrilled but I don’t see anything in anyone else’s bag that I would want either. I have been on a 1 year since January, so next month will be my last. I have had a few great bags but overall more misses.

    • I will say, The Hey Honey products I have tried have been amazing. They are pretty expensive so I haven’t been able to buy any, but hopefully you enjoy that. I cancelled all my sub boxes. I kept getting stuff I would never use, so my nieces were making out like little bandits.

  3. Meh, I know I shouldn’t be surprised, especially since I was only interested in half of the items they were offering this month. I got mascara and an eyebrow pencil, and I never use either of those items. The Elemis marine cream is something I recently tried in a kit from QVC and returned because I was unimpressed. I’m not sure about the Color is Bae lip lacquer, but hopefully it will at least be the mauve one. I’ve tried the Tarte maracuja oil before and liked it a lot. Considering dropping Ipsy for a little while. Sick of getting things I just end up giving away.

    • Sounds like we are getting the same bag! I love the too faced mascara so even th ugh I don’t need it I’m glad I got it however I was hoping to try the porefessional. I’m also hoping the lip color is the mauve one and not the red. Fingers crossed!

      • I looked at the mauve color online and it may be pinker and brighter than I care for. Oh well! The Tarte oil is pretty great and a little goes a long way.

  4. Happy with my bag this month. I am getting the following:
    Luxie duo fiber brush
    Star looks cream eye shadow in rose gold
    The balm mad lash mascara
    Nuxe nuxellence detox
    Adsense brightening base coat

    • That is an awesome bag!!

    • I got the exact same bag! For ONCE I am keeping everything! They’ve sent me blush/bronzer every month for the last 3 months despite telling them I don’t use it, so I’m actually shocked everything’s a keeper this month!

    • Wow I’m getting the exact bag and I’m happy, I just did the math and it’s over $60 value

    • Oh man I really want to try the star looks cream shadow!! No fair ;_;

  5. I’m a little disappointed in my bags this month. Just some duplicate products for me, many which will be put up for swaps.

    Bag #1:
    Purlisse Blue Lotus Moisturizer (swapping)
    W20 Angled Eye Brush (keeping)
    ModelCo Instant Brows Pencil (swapping)
    theBalm Mad Lash Mascara (probably keeping)
    OFRA Banana Setting Powder (swapping)

    Bag #2:
    Luxie Rose Gold Duo Fiber Brush (keeping)
    Too Faced Mascara (swapping)
    Nuxe Detox (probably swapping)
    Starlooks Cream Eye Shadow in Rose Gold (keeping)
    Skone Brow Wand Eyebrow Pencil (swapping)

    • I’d really like the Nuxe Detox!

    • I’m interested in trying ofra banana powder! How do we go about swapping?

        • Yes! I just signed up!

        • What would you swap for the Nuxe Detox? I’m signed up for swapping, though have not done one yet!

        • Carolann,

          Is there another way to swap? I signed up at the site but it’s saying invite only. I’ve never done this before

      • That product is only $12 on their website FYI.

  6. My bag is a total flop. My profile does not have mascara listed and that’s exactly what I am receiving. I feel like I got the last picks. Same last month. Hoping November would have been better. Canceling Subscription

    • I’m cancelling too. The bag is cute, but I have no use for anything in it. Changing my profile, reviewing every single item I’ve ever received, and emailing several times has made no difference. I’ve been with Ipsy a long time, but I’m done now.

    • What you have marked in your profile doesn’t guarantee anything. If you want to make sure you don’t get mascara, e-mail customer service.

  7. I’m really happy with both bags this month!!

    My bag:
    Luxie Beauty rose gold small duo brush
    Verb Ghost Oil
    Too Faced better than sex mascara
    Skone brow wand eyebrow pencil
    LAQA B’lighter in peach

    Sister’s bag:
    Luxie Beauty rose gold small duo brush
    Formula X nail polish Iin huntress
    Starlooks eyeshadow in rose gold
    Lasting smiles lip balm in peach blossom
    the balm mad lash mascara

    Pro-Collagen Marine Cream
    Doucce blush in zen orange
    Luxie brush
    Better then sex mascara
    Contour Stick

    Overall it’s pretty good for me The contour stick and elemis make it worth it. I’m over mini mascaras but that is one I would like to try. The only thing I would say is this is the 3rd month in a row I’m getting blush and unlike skincare products there is such a thing as too many. I like the blush I’m getting thigh and at least it looks like a decent size unlike the balm ones that I never use cause they get lost. Always like getting luxie brushes though ?

  9. Really meh on my bag.

    Noabay Eye Cream
    MissGlam angled brush
    Tarte Oil (excited to try it)
    ModelCo contour stick
    and The balm mascara (i’m so over the balm)

    • We have the same bag. I actually like my bag this month.

  10. Wow, my folks got some great stuff in our/their bags this month!

    NUXE Nuxellence® DETOX Anti-aging serum
    Starlooks Cream Eye Shadow in Rose Gold
    Skone Cosmetics Brow Wand Eyebrow Pencil in Chocolate
    theBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash® Mascara
    OFRA Cosmetics Banana Powder

    Doucce Freematic Blush in #49 Zen Orange
    Delectable by Cake Beauty sweet mint & cream ultra nourishing hand cream
    Luxie Beauty Luxie Rose Gold Small Duo Fiber Brush 524T
    Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara

    Luxie Beauty Luxie Rose Gold Small Duo Fiber Brush 524T
    FORMULA X Nail Polish in Huntress
    Verb Ghost Oil™
    Starlooks Cream Eye Shadow in Rose Gold
    theBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash® Mascara

  11. I am getting the item I most wanted so count the bag as a win, even with the two, count them, two eye products:
    Elemis Pro-Collogen Marine Cream (had my fingers crossed for this one – Yay!)
    Luxie Rose Gold duo fiber brush (brushes are always good)
    Absolute New York matte stick in dark red (I like the color, know nothing of the product?)
    Too faced better than sex mascara (BOO! so, so, so many mascaras)
    Star looks cream eye shadow in rose gold (double BOO!)
    If anyone wants to swap for the Star looks shadow, let me know.

    • I’m definitely interested in the eye-shadow! I’m getting purlisse moisturizer I doubt I will use. Let me know if you’re interested! 🙂

      • I like purlisse, so definitely interested!

        • Awesome!! How should we go about swapping them? 🙂

          • Are you on swaps? I just listed it there as a start. Not sure, otherwise…

        • Yes I am on swaps! Can you send me your profile? I’ll list the purlisse asap 🙂

    • With the Elemis valued at $38, brush $18, eye shadow $12, mascara $14, and lip stick at $3-6, the value is great this month at >$80.

    • I wish I could have your bag. It sounds like you really got a winner. 🙂

    • Absolute NY is affiliated with the Nicka K NY brand — really inexpensive drugstore makeup that has fairly positive hype among beauty bloggers, especially woc. I haven’t tried any lip products, but I like their eye shadow.

  12. My bag… is it good? Unfamiliar with some of it.
    Formula X nail polish in huntress
    Benefit the POREfessional primer
    Elizabeth Mott Color is Bae Lip Lacquer in Red Chili or Moxie Mauve (hoping for mauve)
    Bonvivant Botanical Masks (I’ve never used anything like this before)
    Ofra Banana Powder (I don’t really know what this is)

    • I have the same bag. Banana powder can be used as a setting powder or for undereye baking.

      If anyone wants to swap for my OFRA banana powder they are welcome to. I got the BellaPierre banana powder a while back and regret opening it instead of swapping.

      • I’d be interested in trying the banana powder! What products would you want in it’s place?

        • Anything skincare 🙂

          • Would you be interested in the Tarte Maracuja oil? 🙂

        • Olivia, I couldn’t reply to your post but I’d love to swap for the tarte Maracuja oil.

          The swap listing is here:

          • Sounds good!! I’ll list it asap and find you right after 🙂

  13. I haven’t seen anybody post my variation yet. I’m getting:
    – Ciate London Liquid Velvet Lipstick (will gift this because it’s a super bright red, which I can’t pull off)
    – Formula X Nail Polish in Huntress (love the color!)
    – Tarte Maracuja Oil (I already own the full size, but I’m still excited to receive more of it!)
    – Bonivant Masks (happy to get these… I love sheet masks, and I LOVE that Ipsy always sends multiple masks instead of just one)
    – The Balm Mascara (this was the one I wanted out of the three spoilers everybody was getting. This is the only product I haven’t tried yet out of the three, so I’m very happy)

    Overall, I really like my bag. My poor friend who will be getting yet ANOTHER red lip product probably thinks that’s all I ever receive in my beauty boxes. Ha ha!

    • I have the same bag!! I received mine yesterday and I’m in LOVE with it!! I’m also not using the Ciate lipstick lol I’m not a bright red lip person either. The rest of the bag is wonderful though-I didn’t realize we’d be receiving all three masks so that was a nice surprise too. I had my fingers crossed for theBalm mascara also as I have tried/own the other spoiler items. I’ve been an ipsy subscriber for three years so I do find I get some duplicate items and every few months I think of unsubscribing but then I get a bag like this and figure it’s only $10 and I waste more than $10/month on worse stuff so I keep it-it’s nice to get a little surprise every month and I’ve found some great products that I use daily that I’d prob never have found without ipsy (modelCo blush, peony cosmetics, etc). I also love gifting the ‘misses’ to my friends, niece, stepdaughters, etc-it’s nice seeing how excited they are with the bags I put together for them so for $10/month ipsy has me for life it seems lol.

  14. I’m getting:
    Elizabeth Mott Color is Bae Lip Lacquer in Red Chili or Moxie Mauve
    tarte cosmetics maracuja oil
    Skone Cosmetics Brow Wand Eyebrow Pencil in Chocolate
    The balm mad lash mascara
    Naobay eye contour cream

    I’m excited I try the mascara, oil and possibly the eye contour cream!

  15. I love love love my bag this month!!

    *Nuxe Nuxellence Detox
    *Absolute New York matte stick in NFA52 Dark Red
    *SL Miss Glam angled eye brush
    *theBalm cosmetics Mad Lash Mascara
    *Ofra cosmetics Banana Powder.

    I redid the survey and most everything matches up pretty good. I would have loved to have gotten the rose gold eyeshadow and the VERB ghost oil but all in all I’m happy!!

  16. Well…they selected pretty much everything I didn’t want. LOL.
    Guess I’m loading up on the swap site! BOOOOOOO

    • What did you get?

  17. I haven’t seen my variation posted yet. I also haven’t updated any of my information since they updated the quizzes. My bag contains:

    *Delectable by Cake Beauty Ultra Nourishing Hand Cream
    * Luxie Beauty Duo Fiber Brush
    *’Tini Beauty Eyetini Eyeshadow in Firestarter
    *Adesse Brightening Base Coat
    *The Balm Mad Lash Mascara

    I’m most excited to try the brightening base coat. Thanks to Boxycharm and Ipsy I have a pretty nice collection of Luxie brushes, so those are always welcome. The hand cream I’m just meh about, they usually just end up in my purse or my desk at work. The eyeshadow looks like it may be a wearable shade if it doesn’t have too much shimmer. After receiving liquid liners the last few months I actually don’t mind the mascara. They are almost impossible to avoid since all the subbies seem to get so many of them each month. All in all I still feel like I get my $10 worth (and then some) with Ipsy!

    • Bag twins! I’m excited for the base coat, I like having clean looking nails, and a brightening coat sounds great. I use the Zoya naked series sometimes and that’s nice too. I usually like the delectable but not in mint. Tired of eyeshadows. Can always use new mini mascaras.

  18. I’m getting the:
    -Eyekoe eyeliner
    -formula X nail polish
    -Ciate lippie
    -hey honey serum
    -the benefit porefessional

    I’m very disappointed with this bag and on the edge of unsubscribing, mainly because last month I got a Ciate product, a felt tip eyeliner, and a nail polish as well. Also, my skin is really dry and I have small pores so I won’t really be using the porefessional. I’ve been a subscriber for almost three years now and this is the most disappointing bag that I’ve ever received. What a shame.

    • I would love to trade you for the Porefessional! It’s the one sample I was really hoping for this month! What products are you interested in?

    • I’m so jealous that you have small pores, cause mine are huge! But of course, I didn’t get the Porefessional!

  19. Not much I’m excited about this month, but I was kinda expecting that since last month was good.
    – Luxie Beauty Brush
    – Tini eyeshadow in firestarter
    – Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara
    – Adesse brightening base coat
    – Elemis pro-collagen marine cream

  20. First month for ipsy. I’m getting:

    Eyeko skinny liquid eyeliner (+)
    Pur-lisse blue lotus balancing moisturizer (+)
    Absolute NX Matte lipstick in dark red (-)
    Two faced better than sex mascara (+)
    Starlooks eyeshadow in rose gold (+)

    Other than the red lipstick which I will never use, I’m happy with the bag.

    • Bag twins! I’m psyched; unlike everyone else I actually like getting mascara + black liner, though I’m also pretty new to subscriptions. I feel the same about the dark red color though.. pass!

      • You know, I agree with you on the mascara and eyeliners. I’ve been keeping the sample sized ones in my purse for days I dont have time to put all makeup on before leaving for work!

  21. Im getting
    BH Foil Eyes togo eyeshadow palette (meh)
    Lasting Smiles Lip balm (meh)
    Luxie duo fiber brush(for the love of god I am finally getting a brush!!! YESSSSSS)
    Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara (love getting mascara)
    Skone cosmetics eyebrow wand (this is okay)

    I am okay with my bag. Really glad im getting a brush finally. I have been a subscriber since january and this is only the second brush I have gotten. Yes I have brushes clicked on in my profile. I dont have lip balm or eyeshadow clicked on… but does ipsy care? No. But whatever its cheap and I could never get rid of ipsy.

    But anyways. Im happy with my bag. Cant wait until next month!

    • The pallet was the one thing I really wanted so I can’t help but feel let down even though I got a pretty strong bag this month. I should just be grateful.

      *luxie brush – very excited but I don’t have any products I would use this this with
      *nuxe detox – sure? No complaints
      *elizabeth liquid lipstick – not sure what color it will be or how it looks
      *bonvivant sheet mask – glad I’m getting three but I’m never excited about sheet masks. They will get used though.
      *the balm mascara – really excited to try this.

  22. Getting :
    Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
    ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Cream
    Elizabeth Mott Color is Bae Lip Lacquer in Red Chili or Moxie Mauve
    tarte cosmetics maracuja oil
    Skone Cosmetics Brow Wand Eyebrow Pencil in Chocolate

    I don’t wear mascara very often, and never have used a brow pencil. I work at a high school cafeteria, so my makeup is pretty much limited to bronzer, blush, and on occasion, eyeliner. Those will go in the “for the nieces” bag. I am excited about the Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, and possibly the maracuja oil. And depending on the color, maybe the lip lacquer. So far, rating the bag 2/5 – could go up depending on the lip lacquer. Birchbox hit a home run this month with me, so I can deal with a sub-par Ipsy box.

  23. LOVING what I see! 😀

    I’m getting:

    *NAOBAY Renewal Antiox Eye Contour Cream
    *Leaders Aloe Soothing Renewal Mask & Aquaringer Treatment Mask
    *Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara
    *Elizabeth Mott Color is Bae Lip Lacquer in Red Chili or Moxie Mauve
    *tarte cosmetics maracuja oil

    VERY excited for the masks, maracuja oil & eye contour cream!

    Ipsy was on my chopping block, just because I knew I had too many subs. But they’re always so spot on for me, I decided not to give them up! I am really hesitant to take the new survey – I just don’t want to jinx their great picks for me! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • I got this exact bag and I did want the better than sex mascara which is my favorite mascara. I am also a fan of sheet masks.
      However I am not looking forward to the eye cream, marajuca oil or the gloss. I love lipstick, but not gloss. I wanted hand cream, the eye shadow palette and either lip balm or the besame powder, which I figured wouldn’t get since I didn’t have that as what I preferred, but neither are oils or lip glosses. I’m glad someone gets their wants. I have tried. Sigh.

      • I would LOVE that oil!!! Are you interested in nail polish or eyeliner (Probably not but it’s worth a try lol) ?

  24. I’m pretty pumped for my ipsy as always.

    Luxie Beauty: Luxie Rose Gold Small Duo Fiber Brush 524T

    Verb Ghost Oil™

    Adesse New York Brightening Base Coat.

    Starlooks Cream Eye Shadow in Rose Gold.

    theBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash® Mascara.

    I am most exciting for the eye shadow and the gost oil. I am least excited for the mascara, but it will still get used.

  25. This is the first ever Ipsy bag I will be receiving (I subscribed Oct. 7th thinking I would get the October bag which I was in love with and it was my birthday month) and I’m pretty disappointed. I don’t think the new beauty quiz results have taken effect.

    I will be receiving:
    -FORMULA X Nail Polish in Huntress (won’t use)
    -Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner deluxe in Black (won’t use)
    -Hey Honey Good Morning Honey Silk Facial Serum (yay!)
    -Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (the one I wanted out of the headliners)
    -Elizabeth Mott Color is Bae Lip Lacquer in Red Chili or Moxie Mauve (won’t use)

    I think it was a well rounded bag but I was really hoping for the Luxie brush or more skin care items like:
    -SKIN&CO ‘Truffle Therapy’ Eye Concentrate
    -Nuxe Nuxellence Detox
    -tarte Maracuja Oil

    I guess I’ll see how next month goes.

    • We are almost bag twin, except I got the Balm’s mascara instead of Too Faced (I was hoping for Porefessional, and the Balm as a 2nd choice from headliners because I’ve tried Better Than Sex mascara before). While I like nail polish, I’m not thrilled with the color. I like liquid eyeliner, but there was one in my last bag! I hope the serum is cooperative with oily, sensitive skin, or that will be a bust too. And I hope I get the lip gloss in red, cause I do not think mauves look good on me, and Ipsy has sent me a mauve before. I would have loved to try the truffle therapy eye concentrate as well! So jealous of some of the other bags people got.

      If this is your first bag, I will say it’s been pretty hit or miss for me. My first was okay, second was terrible, third was great, and this one is meh. I’ll probably at least try everything I have.

    • I did the same on October 1st, since I loved the bag design and did end up getting one really late in the month, with their leftovers I assume. Honestly I like the design less in person, but it’s still cute. Sorry you didn’t get one.

      I actually signed up to start trying makeup stuff because I don’t really wear makeup. This month got:

      Luxie small duo fibre brush (I got some makeup brushes from something store once, but I think I threw them out during my last purge, so I guess I should start collecting brushes? And this appears to be a versatile one.)
      Formula X in huntress (I love playing with nail polish, but I’m not sure about the color. It says it’s an emerald color but it doesn’t LOOK green. Maybe green undertones. I wouldn’t call it emerald from the picture.)
      Too Faced mascara (I have naturally good eyelashes, but I’m more interested in eye products than anything else, so it’s a win.)
      Japonesque finishing powder (Eh. I just don’t see myself using makeup often enough to bother with finishers or primers.)
      Lasting smiles lip balm (Yay! Sometimes I use lip balm, though not often, so I was hoping for this. I hope I get peach blossom, but would be okay with vanilla bean. Minty flavors make me a bit nauseous, but peppermint is the most tolerable of them at least.)

    • You can e-mail customer service & ask them to include a specific type of item for your December bag.

  26. I’m getting.
    Elizabeth Mott (lip lacque)
    Tart Cosmetics (maracuja oil)
    ModelCo (,contour stick)
    Indie Lee (CoQ-10 Toner)
    Too Faced (better than sex mascara)
    Ok month

  27. I am so excited for my bag!! Finally a month that I will use everything inside!!!

    Ciate London Liquid Velvet Matte Lipstick in Diva (Red)
    SLMissGlam Angled Eye Brush
    Lasting Smiles Lip Balm
    theBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash Mascara (I LOVE getting Mascara!!)
    Ofra Banana Powder

    • I’m almost your bag twin, except instead of the Lip Balm I’m getting the Pur-lisse blue lotus balancing moisturizer. I’d be happier if I could swap out the banana powder for something else. This will be my 3rd one and it just doesn’t work for me.

  28. I’m pretty happy! I gave up on ipsy awhile back and decided to give it another shot. I’m receiving:

    Eyeko skinny eyeliner in black
    Tarte cosmetics maracuja oil
    Skin&co Roma truffle thereby eye cream
    ModelCo contour stick
    TheBalm Mascara

  29. I am so so disappointed in my bag. I have gotten so many Better Than Sex mascaras that I am just so sick of it. Its a good mascara but I have about 5 sample sizes already and none of them have been opened. I guess most of my friends will be receiving better than sex mascara for Christmas lol I got a hand cream…i hate getting hand creams in my makeup subscription boxes but I guess i can just throw it in my bag so not tooo bad. I also hate getting polishes, this is the one thing I have unchecked in my quiz and always rate polishes low but somehow i still get them. The only thing I am excited about is the Luxie brush because I love Luxie brushes and I am happy this is one I dont have.

    With the quiz updates, I thought my bag would be awesome this month but maybe it will take some time for the new quizzes to take effect?

    • I really hope that the new survey hasn’t come into effect yet. If it has than Ipsy completely ignored my survey. I did not have red lips checked and what am I getting, I bright red lipstick. I don’t get how nude equals red. For Ipsy’s sake, I hope the survey hasn’t come into effect otherwise I’m canceling. They can’t make it seem like they’ll give us our color preference and then ignore. It’s kind of a shame because I really actually wanted to try the liquid lipstick, but I won’t cause of the color.

      • I wouldn’t think the survey was taken into consideration this fast..hoping…cause my bag sucks!

        • I read somewhere that the bag samples are set based on you profile from the 25th of the prior month. So given that the new survey didn’t come out until after, I’d guess that this month’s bag is based on our old profile. Hope this helps!

          • That’s somewhat reassuring. I am disappointed with my bag this month. I am sure I’ll try everything and that the value is over $10, but I didn’t get any of the items I wanted the most.

  30. I’m looking forward to mine:

    pūr~lisse Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer $20
    Benefit Cosmetics the POREfessional face primer $4.22
    SLMissGlam W20 Angled Eye Brush $13
    ModelCo INSTANT BROWS Brow Pencil $11.20
    theBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash® Mascara $5.63

    Total of all products: $54.05

  31. I’m getting the following which I’m mostly okay with:

    Doucce Freematic Blush in Zen Orange
    Luxie Beauty Duo Fiber Brush
    Verb Ghost Oil (never heard of this!)
    ModelCo Contour Stick
    theBalm Mad Lash mascara

    I like that they sent a blush brush in the same bag as a blush:)

    • The VERB Ghost oil is fantastic. You will love it I’m sure. I got it about a year ago in one of my subs and I loved it.

  32. I’m really sad right now about all the products I wanted that I’m not getting 🙁

    I am getting 3 of the 5 that Liz is. They are definitely not using the updated quizzes yet.

    1. FormulaX Huntress nail polish (yay I love nail polish!)
    2. TheBalm mascara (meh. Really want to try the better than sex one from Too Faced)
    3. Ofra banana powder (I like banana powder & use it but this is a super tiny sample!)
    4. Ciaté London Liquid Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in Diva (more freakin red lipstick! Not my color.)
    5. Bonvivant Botanical Pure Masks (sounds good & 3 of them!)

    • I’d swap the Too Faced for the Balm, if you are interested.

      • Thanks but I don’t do the swaps. Too much work for me. Work from home, no printer, live in the city so the closest post office is miles away and always too packed to bother with.

    • Bag twins! I think this is a good bag for me but not looking forward to tiny samples. I love red lipstick and haven’t tried this mascara, so it works for me.

  33. LIZ- We are bag twins this month which never happens. I’m excited about the mascara and eye brush but I do not want the nail polish, banana powder or the Nuxe Detox. I never get nail polish (thankfully) so I’m not sure why I’m getting it this month.

    • What did you want to get? I’d love to get that Nuxe Detox!

    • I want that banana powder if you want to swap!

      • I’m happy to swap my banana powder if you’d like it.

  34. I’m getting:

    Luxie Brush
    Delectable by Cake Beauty hand cream
    Too Faced mascara
    Adesse Brightening Base Coat
    Elizabeth Mott lipgloss

    • Getting the same except instead of the lip gloss getting the eye shadow.

    • Bag twins!
      I’m actually pretty happy with this bag. I was so afraid to look, but now I’m glad I did!

    • I think I am going to cancel now.
      Getting Luxie brush (I don’t need any more brushes thank you)
      Delectable By Cake Hand Cream (don’t need any body or hand cream)
      Too Faced Mascara (ok with this but have enough mascaras now)
      Adesse Brightening Base Coat (this I do like but for 10 bucks bet I can buy it)
      Tina Beauty Eyeshadow In Firestarter (not sure about the color)
      So I really am only happy about the Base coat—I don’t need anymore mascara, and don’t want any brushes or hand cream, and think the eye shadow color is not works for me. So 1 out of five is not worth paying even the 10 dollars.
      Goodbye Ipsy.
      I am hoping Play by Sephora is good this month, if not might have to just stick with Target and Walmart boxes!! I have been back with IPSY about 3 months now and honestly, I seem to always get the worst boxes, and I have even done reviews and changed my profile to only have listed things I like! Feel like they don’t like me! I really hoped to get some face or eye treatment things but never do!

      • What would you have liked? I’d love to get that brush!

  35. Three out of five ain’t bad and I love the bag this month.

    Freematic Blush in #49 Zen Orange (just got a very similar shade of this in my Allure box last month. Also, orange?)
    Benefit Cosmetics
    the POREfessional face primer (I have a dozen of these, I don’t wear primers)
    Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (not very exciting but it might be nice)
    Skone Cosmetics
    Brow Wand Eyebrow Pencil in Chocolate (this might be a winner)
    theBalm Cosmetics
    Mad Lash® Mascara (always excited to try a new mascara, have yet to find the “perfect” one (but Lancome Definicils and L’oreal Voluminous come closest)

    • Bag twins!
      was hoping for one of the brushes though and the powders! Have not gotten any powder in any of my subs since I have started mine, so was hoping for one too, especially this month that there are many powders…
      got Eyebrow pencil in August from Ipsy and have not used it much, i guess this will go to swap…

  36. Somehow I got two headliners-

    Benefit Porefessional Primer
    Thebalm Mad lash Mascara
    LAQA & Co. Blighter in Peachers daughter
    Skone Cosmetics Brow Wand Eyebrow Pencil
    Good morning Honey Silk Facial Serum

    I’m actually really excited about my bag, the only thing I won’t use is the eyebrow pencil and mayyyyybe the mascara, I love mascaras but one, i was hoping for the better than sex mascara and two, I found my holy grail mascara in a previous bag-the ItCosmetics superhero mascara. I wish I’d gotten the tarte oil or a Luxor brush but 3-4 items outta 5 is awesome for an ipsy bag. I changed my age from 31 to 20 2 months ago and both my bags since have been awesome!

  37. Very happy this month. I will be getting
    Naobay Eye Contour Cream
    SLMissGlam Eye Brush
    Tarte Maracuja Oil
    Model Co Contour Stick
    theBalm Mascara
    I can’t wait to try the Maracuja Oil

  38. Too Faced Mascara
    Luxor small duo fiber brush
    Pur-lisse Moisurizer
    Adessa Brightening Top coat
    Elizabeth Mott Lip Laquer

    Pleased with this bag!

    • BAG TWINS!!! I never find an exact match with my ipsy, but this month Terrisa and I are the same!

      I’m happy with the bag. My brush collection is based on beauty subs so I LOVE getting them. Plus the retail on the Luxie is $18 so the rest of the bag is bonus. I loved the Adesse polish I received last month so another product from them is welcome. Hoping for the mauve lippie, but I’m just happy to try a new product/formula.

  39. Here’s what I’m getting:

    Ciate London Liquid Velvet Liquid Lipstick (stocking stuffer for my daughter)
    Eyeko Skinny Liquid Liner (stocking stuffer for my daughter)
    Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara (really wanted this! another ss for my daughter)
    tarte cosmetics Maracuja oil (give to my mom)
    CoQ10 Toner (keep)

    As you can see, I’m giving away most of my bag, but for $10, I scored quite a few really nice Christmas gifts.

  40. I’m getting:
    Doucce Freematic Blush in #49 Zen Orange (happy about this one)
    Hey Honey Good Morning Silk Facial Serum (also happy)
    Absolute New York Matte Stick in Dark Red (like that it’s a lipstick, don’t like the color)
    Besame Cosmetics Vanilla Setting Powder (like idea of setting powder, but not a fan of vanilla scents, so will see if it’s too strong)
    the Balm Mad Lash mascara (why do they keep sending me mascara??? I have it marked as a no in my profile. Everything else fits with it, though, except the lipstick color)

    • I would love the setting powder!! That’s all I want in a bag, and never get it! Instead I’m getting mascara and nail polish, which I specifically never want and don’t have them marked on my profile.

    • Bag twins! I’m excited for the besame powder, blush and serum. I don’t need any more mascara but I’ll pass it on to one of my nieces. I am so sick of red lipsticks! Ipsy only sends me red and hella dark lipsticks.

    • I got the same bag as you. I’m not too disappointed its way better than the BB I’m getting. It looks like a lot of us are getting red lipsticks we don’t want. It seems like I get a red lip product and peach blush every month. The blush will get used unless it really is too orange. I don’t think these subs have much of a choice on the colors they are given because they all send out dark red colors so I don’t blame Ipsy.

    • This is the first time I’ve found a bag twin! I’m super excited for this bag, the only thing I actually was fingers crossed for was the setting powder…and it magically appeared!
      I’m definitely in love with what’s in the bag this month. I was hoping for the porefessional, but the Hey Honey looks like it will be a wayyyy better primer for me.

      Red lippies, mascara, blush, moisturizing primer substitute, and setting powder. Perfect!! my makeup bag will be happy.

  41. I’m getting:

    – Doucce Blush in Zen Orange
    – Benefit Porefessional primer
    – Elemis Pro-Collogen Marine Cream
    – Skone Brow Wand in Chocolate
    – The Balm Madlash Mascara

  42. Why update your profile if they never get it right i dont want red lipstick or lip gloss what are they sending me a red lip gloss smh ipsy get it right already geeesh

    • I’m getting mascara and nail polish, two things I never want and don’t have marked on my profile. They just blatantly disregard the profiles.

      • I have found with Ipsy that while they try to follow your profile, the thing that most changes what you get is reviewing products. If you hate nail. Polish or black eyeliner then review them terribly and say you don’t want them in the review comments. I get great bags since I review my products.

        • Thanks for the info i will do that

      • I agree with you

        • That doesn’t work for everyone. I review all products and mark that I DO NOT want nail polish, lip products, or blush. Every month I get nail polish, lip products, and blush. I know it’s only $10, but I still would like something I am going to use. IF not, it is a waste of money. I want the bag to try new brands. It just never works out for me.

          • You should e-mail customer service & ask to opt out of up to 3 types of products.

  43. My bag has:

    Delectable by Cake Beauty Sweet Mint hand cream
    Formula X Huntress
    Benefit the POREfessional primer (won’t use)
    Elizabeth Mott Color is BAE (really hoping for Moxie Mauve)
    OFRA Banana Powder (won’t use)

    Here lately, my ipsy bags have been pretty lackluster or I’ve been on the subscription wagon for far too long. I would have loved to gotten the mascara by theBALM or the Verb Oil. Oh well, maybe next month will be better.

    • I would have loved to get that Delectable hand cream!

    • If you are interested in trading the Balm mascara for the primer let me know!

  44. Sigh…worst bag ever from them.

    Two-faced mascara – will add to pile
    Hey Honey Morning Serum – oily skin will hate
    Lip Lacquer in bright red – hate color, hate formula
    Luxie brush – might use, have tons already
    Yet another brow pencil – I have Russian eyebrows, I thin them for Pete’s sake

    Oh, well, there’s always next month.

    • I feel ya!

    • What were you hoping for? I’d love to get that brush!

    • I getting the same bag! I’m pleased with everything except the Hey Honey serum.

      Hey, at least your Lip Lacquer might be the Moxie Mauve shade instead of that garish red!

      • Bag twins! This is the happiest I’ve ever been with a bag! I have been reviewing for six months so that might be helping. Also I just took the quiz. Hoping it was in effect otherwise I’m worried I will jinx the future since I’m so happy this month!?

      • True, it might be mauve, but liquid lipstick makes me look like an 80 year old corpse. I have tried 3 brands already, so it’s just not for me.

  45. I like four out of five products, so that’s pretty good.
    I’m getting…
    1. Ciaté London Liquid Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick in Diva (Another red lipstick YAY so no one ever)
    2. FORMULA X Nail Polish in Huntress (Not a bad color and I like painting my nails)
    3. EYEKO Eyeko Skinny Liquid Eyeliner deluxe in Black (I’m getting it in allure too, but I still really want to try it)
    4. Benefit Cosmetics the POREfessional face primer (the only headliner that I wanted YAY!)
    5. Hey Honey Good Morning Honey Silk Facial Serum (Don’t know anything about it, but I like serums)

    • I have almost the same bag! The only difference is that I’m getting LAQA & Co. B’lighter in Peacher’s Daughter instead of the FORMULA X Nail Polish in Huntress.

      I’m actually excited about the Ciaté because I’m having a liquid lipstick moment and a bright red could be really useful for holiday makeup. I know other people would have dreaded the EYEKO but I’m really excited about it because I’ve always wanted to try it and last month I got the only non-black eyeliner. The POREfessional will definitely be used because I have large pores; I kind of wanted the TooFaced mascara, but I already have a mascara stockpile. And I also know nothing about the Hey Honey, but a serum should be super handy during the colder months.

      The B’lighter is the thing I’m most on the fence about because I associate peach with warmer months, but the cream formula might be great for dry winter skin.

  46. My bag:
    NAOBAY Renewal Antiox Eye Contour Cream RV $7
    Leaders Cosmetics USA Aloe Soothing Mask and Aquaringer Treatment Mask Combined RV $10
    Elizabeth Mott Color is Bae Lip Lacquer in Red Chili or Moxie Mauve RV $12
    tarte Cosmetics maracuja oil $6.50
    theBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash Mascara $5.60
    Total RV: $41.10

    My sister’s bag:
    Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Small Duo Fiber Brush 524T $18
    Formula X Nail Polish in Huntree $3.55
    Verb Ghost Oil $3.50
    Starlooks Cream Eye Shadow in Rose Gold $12
    theBalm Cosmetics Mad Lash Mascara $5.60
    Total RV: $42.68

    • I would love to have gotten your sister’s bag! The Luxie, Verb and theBalm were on top 5 list and I got none of them.

    • How did you figure out the RV? I can tell what size most of my samples are. Thanks

      • I am bit of a math nerd at times, so it really comes into play every month when I get my ipsy bag reveal. I look at the size of the sample product and divide it by the size of the full size product. For example, the tarte Cosmetics Marajuca Oil is 7 ml compared to 1.7 fl oz of the full size product. I use google to convert ml into fl oz and got 0.237 fl oz for that product. When I divided 0.23 fl oz by 1.7 fl oz, it came up that the sample size is 13.5% of the full size product. I multiplied $48 by 13.5% and got $6.49.

        I do the same thing for each of the products because I like to know how good of a deal that I’m getting every month. I only use the RV that is shown on either product’s site or Sephora/Ulta. I tend to not use any RV shown at Amazon or ebay since they do not always have reputable sub-retailers.

  47. I’m getting:
    • Formula X nail polish in Huntress
    • Doucce Freematic Blush in #49 Zen Orange
    • pür-lisse Blue Lotus Balancing Moisturizer
    • Tarte Maracuja Oil
    • the Balm Mad Lash Mascara

    Not mad about anything in here, but none of these were my top picks. I’ve been really hoping for Ipsy to send me more brushes, so I’m jealous of anyone who’s getting one of them this month.

    • Oh, and I also had redeemed points for a Buxom shimmer shock lip stick in Uncontrollable, so I’m supposed to be receiving that as well!

      • Awesome I heard that’s a pretty shade.

        • It looks really pretty in the picture on Ulta’s website, so I’m excited. 🙂

  48. It won’t show me unless I leave a comment for FB & Twitter, and even when I *do* leave a comment it still won’t show me. Annoying!

    • Same for me. Not happy about it, guess I’ll have to wait:(

    • Same for me, I am officially cancelling Ipsy. We should not be forced to share ANYTHING on Social Media.

      • I didn’t have to share to FB. Instead i clicked the Show Me Now link and it will take you to your bag.

        • That didn’t work for me, so I went and cancelled. I don’t think I will miss it much except it was the one sub my daughter and I both subscribed too so it was fun comparing bags monthly. To me this says Ipsy cares more about Ipsy than customers by forcing us to post to social media.

      • I have my settings set on share only with me, so when I share its not pubic yet it still lets me see what I am getting.

        • Yep.

        • me too

      • I didn’t have to post anything to social media

    • Do what I used to, comment but mark it so only you can see it. Then it should open up but you aren’t forced to comment publicly. I hated that so I did it this way and it worked, before I ended my sub anyway.

  49. Was really hoping this bag was going to be the winner I’ve been waiting for since they updated the survey – but everything will be for trade once again ? At least the bag is cute

    • Same here! I chose more neutral tones in the survey (Light pink and nudes) and I’m getting some bright red lip thing. Oh well

    • – Luxie brush
      – Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara
      – Elizabeth Mott lip lacquer
      – Beauty Kitchen skin polish
      – ModelCo contour stick

      I know there are plenty of fellow ipsters who would love this bag, but I don’t. Only one item – the lip lacquer – even matches my beauty profile, and there’s a 50% chance I’ll get the bright red, which would be totally unusable for me. Oh well. Last month I got the perfect bag, so I suppose I’m making up for it now. Can’t win ’em all. I still love ipsy. ?

    • I don’t think the options would take effect until the December bags. I believe IpsyMatch starts planning our bags around the 25th/26th and I didn’t see the quiz revision announcement until right after that.

  50. I am getting the following:

    Luxor Rose Gold small duo fiber brush
    Verb ghost oil
    Absolute New York matte stick in dark red
    Too faced better than sex mascara
    Star looks cream eye shadow in rose gold

    I am very happy with my bag, I redid the survey and this matches up with my selections very well!

    • Ugh, that was my dream bag!!!
