  1. My subscription addiction said today new sign ups will be getting an IT Cosmetics contour kit.

  2. I really want the brush or the gimmie brow or the foundation from esteelauder

  3. I really want that luxie brush I love brushes❤️

  4. Does anyone know how requesting an item works? It is just for the American subscribers or can the Canadians participate as well.

    • ive never been able to pick an item from ipsy. they go by your feedback reviews each month and then a computer program chooses the items and types of items by that, im in indiana and never been able to suggest or pick an item.

  5. I got the Luxie brush in my last bag, I’ve received the IT Cosmetics mascara in another subscription and disliked it, and I already own the full size Gimme Brow.

    I’m really hoping for the Urban Decay but would be fine with the lipstick.

  6. Has anyone heard the shades of Mellow lipsticks offered this time? I got one before & loved it & love the scent of it too-smells like the beach. And very wearable matte.

  7. I think it’s a UD highlighter (in sin) but the link above says blush and links to the blush page on ulta but the actual product I believe is a highlight in the color sin. Just FYI to whoever made this MSA page 🙂

  8. I wonder how miserable the size of Estée Lauder Compact would be. Any idea? It’s just impossible to get the full size that worth 45 bucks. Crave it, though:)

    • They have it as a point reward and that one is full size…so unless they have a smaller one for the glam bags, then I’m thinking it may be full size too! 😉

    • i redeemed my points, and got the Estee lauder, and mine is full size “40 fl oz.liq./12ml” super excited, just got it today and going to try it tomorrow. i got the 1n2 ecru shade. I had points going to expire and never could catch anything on points, and i was 10 points away from being able to get it and i reviewed my bag and got it!! ive read people are saying they might do away with “points for reviews” does anyone know anything about that?! i read the new terms and conditions, but didnt really see anything about it, so i am assuming people got it wrong?!?! i sure hope so because i LOVE that little extra i get. i dont know many people to sign up, so these points are just an extra benefit of ipsy, and i enjoy reading through the reviews, especially on items i did not get, but wanted to try

  9. I wrote to Ipsy and here was their response:

    Thanks for writing!

    I’d love to send what you’ve chosen, but I can only pick products for you that are included in our upcoming month’s Glam Bag product selection. The Estée Lauder compact won’t be part of the featured products in the May Glam Bag, but you can feel free to pick anything else from our upcoming selection. Sorry about that!

    If you’re not sure what to request for May, here are my favorites:
    –Pacifica Island Life Eyeshadow Palette
    –IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara in Black
    –trèStiQue Mini Matte Lip Crayon in Tuscan Wine
    –Luxie Beauty Luxie Dreamcatcher Precision Foundation Brush 660
    –Briogeo Rosarco Milk™ Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray


    I just felt like leaving a quick response here to let you all know what was available for selection. 🙂

    • I got the same 🙁

      • Me too. I had a huge problem with my redeemed points last month so they let me pick one I tried to sneak the UD in as a pick but she said no. Well, she said she couldn’t guarantee it. I asked for the Pacifica palette or the Briogeo. Just not another damn contour brush. Ugh.

    • oooooh, how are you able to pick/ choose one item that will definitely be in your bag?!? ive never been able to do this, and would like to be able too sometimes. sometimes i just like the surprise, but would be nice to be able to try something i have been wanting too, if its up for offer in the bag 🙂

  10. Is that Urban Decay a blush or a highlighter?

    • its a highlighter

  11. I can’t wait to get the luxie brush!

  12. I’m thinking of getting ipsy for the first time! If I sign up now will it start with April or May? Didn’t care for the Ticket bag. Is there a chance there will be a “free gift” for signing up offer or are those rare? Appreciate any advice!

    • If you signed up now, you would get the May bag. The last day of the month is the cutoff for the following month’s bag (so March 31 was the last day to sign up for April’s bag), which also means you could wait until the 30th to sign up and see if any offers pop up between now and then. 🙂

      • Thank you, that helps!

    • Hi Julie,
      I signed up last Friday and was placed on the waitlist. I contacted customer service and was removed from the waitlist. I was told that if there were available spaces I would receive the April bag, but if not, I would be billed May 1 and receive the May bag. When I log into my account, it states I’ll be billed on May 1.

      • OK Sharon, you “made” me do it. The message I got says I’m on the waitlist till May 1 which would be perfect. I deserve it since I canceled Birchbox, lol.

        • You totally deserve it Julie! 🙂

    • When I signed up in January at the beginning of the month, I still had to wait until February. So I’m guessing you won’t get this month’s box. I got a free gift for signing up (a lipstick that is actually pretty nice), but it doesn’t seem like you’re missing out on a huge free gift, if that helps. 🙂

    • They’re giving an IT cosmetics contour palette as stated above in my subscription addiction.

      • Yup I saw that, thanks! Of course I went ahead and signed up last week. Oh well, I’m telling myself I wouldn’t have liked that palette anyway (I saw so-so reviews on it.)

  13. I’m new to ipsy-how do you request a sample? Thanks to anyone who can clue me in!

    • You can just email them and request it… you have until the 30th to do so, so if you have something in mind already, you can just ask them, if not, they can provide options.

  14. I’d love to get another brush!

  15. I desperately need the Benefit Gimme Brow in all of the shades! If anyone gets this sample and doesn’t want it, I will swap or buy from you! Trying to link my profile to this comment, we’ll see how it goes.

  16. I requested the Luxie brush – does that mean it will be my guaranteed item, or that I’ll get another one? I’m usually bored by mascara but the items look pretty good this month. 🙂

    • It depends. Some people only get their selected item as the guaranteed item, some people get more than one.

  17. I’ve already requested the Luxie brush so gimme Gimme Brow!!!

  18. Well shoot.. I was told by ipsy that ‘Briogeo Rosarco Milk™ Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray’ would be one of the options. That’s what I requested on 4/7. The only other item I’d be happy with is the ‘Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel.’

    • These are guaranteed items in the May bags, not your May choices. Those are two different things that sometimes have overlap.

      • Thank you for clarifying! Can you tell I’m still sort of new at this? ;-p

        • Ha, no worries! Happy to help.

    • On April 15th I was offered one of these choices for May:

      –IT Cosmetics Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara in Black
      –trèStiQue Mini Matte Lip Crayon in Tuscan Wine
      –Luxie Beauty Luxie Dreamcatcher Precision Foundation Brush 660
      –Briogeo Rosarco Milk™ Reparative Leave-In Conditioning Spray

      It seems the Briogeo is still a choice for May 🙂

  19. Wait, I just redeemed 750 points for that foundation and now this is saying I could have just requested it as my pick for the month in my regular bag? Plus if the foundation in the bag is full size like the point one appears to be, and only some people get it that’s going to cause a huge discrepancy in value

    • No – you can’t request the items not selected on the “request” list. The foundation was not on the “request” list.

    • There is no way the foundation will be full size in the bag, it’s worth $42 or so. I redeemed the point also which is full size.

  20. Wow, that is some wasteful packaging on the EL sample.

    • It’s actually the fullsize, the makeup comes out of a little hole to keep the rest fresh. You can see it on their site! 🙂

    • You push down to get more product 🙂 It’s kind of like a cushion compact, but with plastic. It’s liquid and made to be spill proof for travel!

      • Thank you both! That makes me feel better about it. 🙂 I hate wasteful packaging; it’s a peeve of mine!

    • Thanks to you both for the info! That makes me feel a little better about it. I hate seeing wasteful packaging; it’s a peeve of mine. 🙂

      • Have you ever received a package from Sephora?? Holy crap a giant box and a mile of bubble wrap for my replacement BB cream p. I literally could fit 5 boxes in it. Luckily, I swap a lot and will use it but it’s insanely wasteful

        I have two ipsy and I’m getting an Urban Decay and a Luxie, I’m in love with their brushes and ALWAYS trying to swap for them. Ipsy just when I say I’ll cut down to one or none you suck me in every time!!

  21. It would be nice to get the compact and the brush! How odd that the compact is a points reward before we know whether or not we get it on our bag.

    I’ve opted out of mascara, so the only thing I really hope I don’t get is the brow product.

  22. Well, I’m getting that brush in this month’s bag…and I have already received the superhero mascara….so mine are kinda narrowed down. However-I would TOTALLY be game for any of these spoilers! I have high hopes that this will be one of the best bags yet. 🙂

  23. BENEFIT GIMMIE BROW 😃😃😃😃😃 I hope I get it!!!

  24. The brand of lipstick is mellow cosmetics. They’ve sent them out before.

  25. I think the lipstick is the brand “mellow” because I’ve received it before in an ipsy bag.

    • Yes, I came in to say that also. I received one from Lookfantastic.

  26. The lipstick is a brand called mellow…weve had it in a bag before

  27. I really want that luxie brush!

  28. Looks like Mellow Lipstick to me.

    • Good eye!! Thank you!
