  1. I can definitely tell they’re at least looking at my preferences. But I received more theBalm, which is my fault because I forgot to un mark it. If I never see them again it’d be too soon lol I’m so sick of getting bronzer and theBalm stuff. I never use it. So corrected my profile and will definitely review accordingly. Fingers cross the reign of theBalm terror is over lol

    • Ugh, the Balm! Lol. And I even unchecked it a couple months ago. How does anyone fit a blush brush in that tiny square opening. 🤔

  2. I am getting the Kate lip balm if anyone wants to swap!

  3. It looks like the full spoilers are up on Ipsy’s site. I’ve gotta say, I’m not too thrilled with the bag I am receiving this month.

  4. Wow that sounds by. Can I request all items in bag or just 1?

    • Your only able to request 1 item. But at least your guaranteed to love at least 1 out of 5 items you receive 🙂

      • There was one time I got a bag and they sent me all the products shown.

        • Well then you got lucky! Lol. I’ve never received a bag with everything shown. I know you can e-mail them and request 1 product, but I don’t know much else lol

      • How do you request an item?

  5. I received an e-mail from ipsy regarding a choice for Feb 2017 if anyone is interested. 😊

    Thanks for writing!

    I’d be happy to help you handpick one of your products for next month. I’ve picked out some of our favorite products from February’s Glam Bag selection:

    –NYX Butter Lipstick in ‘Ripe Berry’ or ‘Lifeguard’
    –Luna Cosmetics Highlighter in ‘Calypso’
    –Trust Fund Nail Polish in ‘I Give Good Tweet’ or ‘$12 Latte’
    –Lord & Berry Eyeliner in ‘Dark Black’
    –SOO AE Sheet Mask Duo
    –Luxie Beauty Rose Gold Blush Brush #514

    Let me know which one is your top choice before 12pm on the 30th, and I’ll make sure it’s in your February Glam Bag. I hope you’ll love it!

  6. Pretty excited for this month and next month’s bags.

  7. Are these full spoilers or are there more to come?

    • More to come! 🙂

    • The it bye bye under eye is AMAZING my mom has some and it makes her looks 10 years younger and it covers better than and concealer ever. I would like the naked eyeshadow and the Clinique makeup remover also! This bag looks great

      • I love the bye bye under eye. It is AMAZING! Also works great as a eyeshadow primer.

      • I’m hoping for the makeup remover too! 🙂

  8. Ladies, I am having such a difficult time redeeming my Ipsy points. Every time I check their choices, they seem to be labeled “sold out.”

    Any suggestions? I’ve written CS and the form letter I received states that they are sorry, and to keep visiting their site – LOL!

    • My suggestion is to keep looking. There doesn’t seem to be any specific schedule. For a little while they were updating them on Wednesdays, but I haven’t seen anything new for over a week. I typically take a look about once a day. They do post on Facebook when they put new Rewards up, so make sure to follow them.

  9. Only things I see that I really want are the Crown brush, the Ciate topcoat, and my faaaaaavorite! Naked mica pigment! They could just send me the pigment and I’d be a happy girl. 😆

    • I got all 3!!!😍😍

  10. The nail polish could be fun lacquar – king

    • It does look like F.U.N lacquer!! In the Kings shade. Wow love how they have indie brands from different countries. I’m pretty sure this is a Singapore brand:))

    • Agree. Looks like the bottle of another FUN Lacquer I already have.

  11. I just cancelled mine 5 min ago and I’m heart broken, I need to save money. O-well sometimes we have to adult. :'(

  12. Meh. Not to excited hope I a brush.

  13. I want the bye bye concealer!!

  14. Woohoo! Go ipsy! I would be happy with any of these! 🙂 The least exciting for me is The Balm bronzer, but I opted out of bronzer/countour, so I shouldn’t get it anyways. Yay!!! I also emailed them and requested the pur~lisse Blue Lotus mud mask. Can’t wait to get my bag this month!! 😀

    • i signed up 2 days after christmas and the next day they took my payment from my cc . boy they are quick to take your money. I sure hope mine is on the way in the mail

      • shawn- they always take out money around the 1st and ship around the 10th(depending on where you live)…. I’m hoping for either of the brushes, the blush, concealer, bb cream and lippie. woot.

    • i hope i get the blush or the top coat..

  15. I’m pretty surethane that polish is by ILNP ( I love nail polish)

  16. Is it just me or does that lipstick look like the color of baby poo???

  17. I keep seeing ppl saying all you have to do is tell ipsy what you don’t want and they’ll switch it up, but I’ve politely asked/begged for no eyeliner and yes please nail polish and I get no polish and quit ipsy after my fourth eyeliner. How do you get them to listen?

    • And I always receive nail polish and would prefer eyeliner. I’ve said no nail polish over and over and continue to receive it, we should swap.

    • That’s really strange. I have opted out for three months now and everything I opted out of I have not received again. I opted out of any nail products for the duration of my subscription and opted out of bronzer/contour and eyeshadow. Last month I changed my opt out list to include eyeliner but no eyeshadow. I also requested lip products and now get them every month. They have been letting me pick a specific item monthly as Well. You should contact them again and let them know you have been getting products you opted out of. They sent me a free gift after I complained about receiving nail polish every month even though I reviewed and said I didn’t want any.

    • They DON’T listen! I have literally gotten 7 lipsticks of about the same shade and I kept telling them that I don’t wear lipstick. All the eye shadows are just about the same color. I have redone my profile I don’t know how many times hoping that they would stop giving me stuff I have no need for, but they continued, so I cancelled 🙁

      • The opt-out service has only been offered for a couple months. You have to e-mail customer service directly, not just fill out the survey.

    • I called and spoke to a very informative customer service rep. She told me that my December request for no eye products takes approximately 12 weeks to become effective – as our bags are planned that far out. She also stated that the request was active for a three month period.

      Her remarks sounded reasonable – has anyone else been told specifics when they have called CS?

      • I received an e-mail from CS, and have seen confirmation from other copy-pasted e-mails from other CS reps that all state your choices need to be in before the first of the month.

        12 weeks is 3 months! Ipsy has such a high volume of subscribers & unsubscribers that there’s no way they could plan that far in advance.

  18. I hate blush and yet i keep getting it, even after i review the product and basically give it a one star. Whats the actual point of reviewing? Really hoping i dont get any blush or highlight.

    • Exactly.

    • Have you e-mailed customer service directly and requested to opt out of blushes and highlighters? I e-mailed them and asked to opt out of hand creams/moisturizer and nail polish and the CS rep told me I would not get those items for 5 months and if I would like, I could eternally opt out of those items, but should you change your mind, you can always email them to opt in to those items if you like. And also, for the last 2 bags, they have given me a list and let me choose 1 item for my bag so at least I’m guaranteed to love at least 1 item 🙂

      • Do you have to request the list for the next month so that you can choose your item or are they sending it to you automatically? I sent an email about not receiving hair products and she gave me a list at that time and gave me options to opt out. I was wondering how do I know what’s going to be in the next month’s box so that I can make a selection each month ?

        • They gave me a list 2mo back and all I did last month was email them saying that it was so great that I was able to pick an item because that option guaranteed that I loved at least 1 item in my bag, and they e-mailed back saying that she would be more than happy to help me choose another item and she sent me a list 🙂 I just sent an e-mail today asking for Febs list. 🙂

  19. Hoping for the SLMISSGLAM brush, the Clinique makeup remover, and the naked eyeshadow. I’m hoping that I don’t get any skincare or that tiny bronzer by benefit their samples really anger me! The bag is soooooo pretty! IM SO EXCITED!!

  20. Someone PLEASE tell me that’s a FUN nail polish!!! Lol, let the holo gods put one in my bag!!!! Lmao.

    • Please and thank you! Fingers crossed for the polish for sure 🙂 I get my nails done, but always take my own polish (for sanitary reasons). As long as I receive the polish I don’t care what the other 4 items are!

    • I believe it’s by ILNP (I love nail Polish) I have a rose gold holographic shade by them and I lover it!

      • It has the exact packaging and says F U N for fun lacquer. The lines are in the right spot. I’d bet on it.

  21. Everything looks great!! I love naked’s products. I wear them everyday. You can create so many looks with their products because they are so pigmative you can wear them anywhere on your face. You can where them on your cheeks, eyes or lips or all over.

  22. Ooh, I want EVERYTHING!!!! (Except a blush, but I’ve opted out of those, so yay!)

  23. The top pur~lisse item is the Blue Lotus Seed 5-in-1 Mud Mask.

  24. Please oh please can I get the polish or top coat! Id love both, but id be thrilled with just one. Id also love to try the H2O oasis cream, I need to find a good one. Not super into makeup and so far it seems pretty makeup heavy. If this months a bad one, it might be my last, I have so much hope in Ipsy but find I’m always disappointed. Perhaps its just not the subscription for me, fingers crossed they get it right this month.

    • I’d email to let them know you want skin care and not makeup in future bags! I’d rather get makeup.

    • I love that Ipsy is more makeup! If you like more of the skincare stuff you should try Birchbox.

    • Jessiecups- I feel the same way. If it doesn’t work out for me in the next 2 boxes I’ll likely try a Korean skin care box . I’d love to get the polishes , hand or face creams too

    • I had major envy over the moisturizers I saw in the November & December bags, so I e-mailed to request one for January. I got a response from CS that I’d be getting one, so I hope it’s that!

    • I’ve tried birchbox as well, samples are just too small with the loss of the points system. Also ipsy usually has plenty of items I’d like/love, I just have terrible luck haha. I emailed them last month and got to pick an item for this bag, requested that brush since I didn’t want any of the other options and I figured the brush would swap well. I don’t necessarily blame it on Ipsy or anything, just might not be right for me. Who knows, we will see when reveals are up 😀

      • I actually prefer makeup over skincare and will likely post many of the skincare products I receive on my swap page (except for eye creams), in case you’re interested. I emailed Ipsy and requested that they never again send a toner or face oil to me because I have sensitive skin and they agreed to honor that, so if there are particular kinds of makeup you don’t want, you may want to email and specify that, but I don’t think you can request an all skincare bag. I feel like MSA posts about several beauty subs that contain more skincare than makeup (though can’t think of the names off the top of my head, since I wouldn’t subscribe to these), so you may want to explore a little more!

    • I agree – this isn’t the subscription for you if you don’t want makeup and you do want skincare. Birchbox, Glossybox, and Allure all seem to be much more skin (and hair) care and little to no makuep. But if you really want to try amazing skincare products, subscribe to Look Fantastic. They ship from the UK, their skincare products are great, and most months there is either one or zero makeup items.

      • BeautyFix also tends to have more skincare than makeup and the value is always great. I don’t subscribe to it simply because I want more makeup than skincare.

  25. Everything looks good to me! Hoping I get to try through it cosmetics illuminating concealer because I’ve read mixed reviews so of love to try before I buy!☺

    • I have the regular IT cosmetics concealer and have mixed feelings about it. It certainly has fuller coverage and brightens my undereye area, but I have large pores and I feel like it builds onto the pores in the area right below my undereye in a way that other concealed don’t, even when I heat it up between my fingers first and use a concealer brush to blend it, so it looks kind of obvious in my opinion. I also think that the IT makeup line may not be a great fit for my skin tone, so that could be why. I’ve had to return a colored powder from them before cause it made me look sickly, and I’m not even pale! I would still be interested to try to illuminating one, and Liz says the IT is the best undereye concealer, so I’ve kept mine in hopes I figure out what I’m doing wrong, lol. I find that the Smashbox undereye BB cream is better for the area below my lower crease, but terrible in the crease, and Maybelline’s Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser blends better than both and feels lighter and smoother, but also doesn’t have as full coverage. I probably also just need more sleep.

  26. The nail polish is from F.U.N Lacquer.

    • Yassss… that’s what I thought as soon as I scrolled past it. Sooooo happy they’re having it out. Hoping I get one.

  27. It sort of looks like he ILNP polish!

    • This was what I was going to say – ILNP

  28. I LOVE that Clinique makeup remover! I also wouldn’t mind getting the ciate top coat nail polish. It would be fun to get a makeup brush. I just bought a whole bunch of new brushes but you can never have enough brushes, right 😉

  29. Cool! Lots of good stuff here, though I already have a couple items from other boxes and would put them up for swap if I get them. I like the bag more than most of the ones they’ve had since August, which was my first and favorite! I already know I’m getting the eyeshadow brush, but I would love to get the Smashbox BB cream, IT undereye concealer, Trust Fund lip gloss, and Rimmel by Kate lip balm. The ModelCo blush looks pretty too, but I have gotten a lot of blushes lately (including the Manna Kadar one from Benevolent!) and don’t really need more. I’d probably keep it though if I got it. Least excited about theBalm bronzer out of everything I see here.

    Liz, none of my comments seem to post on the MSA iPhone app anymore. Is something wrong with it, or might it be my phone specifically? My phone also likes to turn off abruptly when it gets cold, so it could be my phone, lol. I hope your family had a Happy New Year! 🙂

    • I have plenty of other skincare and beauty problems, but the one thing I lucked out with is decent bone structure, so I am uninterested in the contouring trend and usually only use bronzer as a replacement for blush when I’m going for a brown-toned makeup look.

  30. I swear bronzer season never ends.

    • I have so many that when I do my makeup I say to myself, Contour like a Kardashian.

      • This comment cracked me up! I know that feeling too. Please sub boxes no more bronzer!

  31. This will be my 2nd ipsy bag so I’m hoping for a better experience this time around since I wasn’t thrilled the first time. I just feel like I received very little I could use so I will be passing most of the items on. That said it’s still a good bargain for the price I guess..

    • Be sure to rate your items and bag every month. It really makes a difference, it will get better suited to you every month as long as you keep rating your stuff.

    • You can also email Ipsy if you want to opt out of up to 3 items! That helps control what you get to some degree. I feel that Ipsy is hit or miss. It’s like I love the bag every other month, and am really disappointed the in-between months. However, I try to look at it like this: as long as I like enough items that add up to a retail value of greater than $10, I shouldn’t complain too much. Usually, the value is around $30+ each month, so if I only like 2-3 items, it’s usually worth $10 or more still. Plus, I’m enjoying the MSA swap site for anything I don’t want to keep and I give beauty products I’ve tried and don’t like to my mom because she has a different skin and hair type and different coloring!

    • Yes, it took me a while of reviewing to get bags I can actually enjoy! I’d give it at least 6 bags, and make sure you email them too if there is something you won’t use at all. I haven’t done that last part though in case it prevents me from getting things I DO want. Some of my best bags have included one item I won’t even use, but the other 4 are amazing. Keep that in mind.
