  1. How many product categories have you guys been able to opt out of? I’ve heard a lot of people say 3 but when I asked to opt out of a 3rd they told me I can only do 2

    • I feel like they changed it from 3 to 2 – maybe because more people are emailing them nowadays. I could’ve sworn months ago when we first caught wind of it, it was up to 3, but I spoke with them just yesterday and they said 2 as well.

      • How do you speak to them?


  2. How do you guys select specific items in your bags? I don’t see that option anywhere when I log in to my account.

    • CatBert, email [email protected] with your choice from the list above, by April 30. You will likely get a reply back pretty quick.

      • Hey, it worked! They replied very fast.

        I am curious though, where do you guys see the list of items we can pick from?

        • Lately, MSA has been posting the list. It looks like it’s listed above. However, when you email Ipsy, you can also ask for the list, and they’ll provide it to you. 🙂

          • Thanks, but I was referring to the items in the comments below. Where do people get them from?

            Oh, and also, how many items are you allowed to request?

            Thank you!

        • You can request multiple items, but you won’t get every item you request. I was torn between the eyeshadow and the urban decay highlighter so I told them I was torn and they said they will put my requests on file but I will more than likely only get 1 of the 2 which is fine with me. Although, last month, I requested the ofra blush but a week later when I saw the colourpop eyeliner, I asked to change my request and I ended up with both in my bag. I always email them around the 1st of the month and ask for the list for the following month because the more people request, the more likely they will run out of those products so I like to get my request in early 🙂

          • I requested the UD highlighter and they told me that isnt on the list of items you can request, but there’s still a chance I will get it in my bag.

          • That’s strange. This was the email I got when I asked for the list for May.

            Hi Jackie,

            As a token of appreciation, I’d love to offer you the choice of at least one of your goodies next month. I’ve picked out some of our favorite products from May’s Glam Bag selection:

            ​–Urban Decay ​Afterglow in Sin
            –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

            Please let me know which ones are your favorites by the 30th, and I’ll make sure that at least one of them is included in your May Glam Bag!


            Then, I requested the highlighter and palette and I got this response.

            Hey Jackie!

            You’re very welcome!

            I’ve gone ahead and updated your selections and made sure that at least one of your picks for the Urban Decay ​Afterglow in Sin or the Pacifica Island Life Eyeshadow Palette will be included in your May Glam Bag. I hope you end up with both. 🙂

            Please let me know if I can help with anything else, and thank you for being a loyal ipster!

            Stay beautiful,

            Maybe they ran out of the highlighter already?

  3. Ipsy looks like it’s gotten pretty good since I canceled. Just got rid of sephora play, so maybe I’ll sign back up for this!

    • Amber, I also cancelled my Sephora Play! Bag. I have been so disappointed with the last two. Ipsy has had been spot on with their bags, excellent job choosing products that fit my skin needs.

  4. However, here are some other products we’re featuring in May that you can select from:
    — Mellow Cosmetics Creamy Matte Lipstick in Nude or Posh
    — Kapuluan Raw Organic Coconut Oil
    — Global Beauty Charcoal Wash Off Mask
    — Caked Maked Lip Fondant in Low Key
    — Bare Republic UV Protecting Dry Shampoo

    • i would love the dry shampoo hair is need. thank you ipsy…

      • This is an MSA message board, this isn’t Ipsy.

    • Thank you for adding this, too!

  5. Other may choices
    However, here are some other products we’re featuring in May that you can select from:
    — Mellow Cosmetics Creamy Matte Lipstick in Nude or Posh
    — Kapuluan Raw Organic Coconut Oil
    — Global Beauty Charcoal Wash Off Mask
    — Caked Maked Lip Fondant in Low Key
    — Bare Republic UV Protecting Dry Shampoo

  6. May will be first Ipsy bag…so with the spoilers, and the guaranteed products listed, we will get 5 of them? and our bags will all vary, I’m assuming…? I chose the Briogeo Hair Milk for my choice and CS said yes to that..:)

    • Noelle, this will be my first ipsy month . Glad I found thus great MSA site.😀

      • MSA + Beauty boxes = love at first site…

        sooooo fun

  7. They have been really on point the last few bags so I’m gonna let the dice fly on this one.. fingers crossed for products that aren’t yet released!

    .. secretly hopes for Ofra blusher lol…

    • I got an Ofra blush (by request) in my April bag…love it!

  8. Sooo excited!!! Love everything!!

  9. I requested the Pacifica and opted out brows and hi liters.

  10. Fyi, the Caked Lip Fondant is in shade Low Key (and doesn’t look like what’s shown). It’s more of a pink/red/coral mixture – hard to explain haha, but it’s nice. Just sucks I already have it 🙁

  11. The Gimmie Brow is my favorite. I ended up buying the full size.

    • I bought one of the Gimme Brows because I’d been wanting to try it since the redesign and unfortunately didn’t get one in my first Birchbox (my first box was the month they featured the Gimme Brow as a sample choice item) and nobody else had done it as a sample product. I have enjoyed it. If ipsy sends me that this month, I’ll either keep it for travel use or give it to a relative.

  12. I heard the compact was only to redeem with points…. Not a sample product to choose. Do you know if this is the case?

    • You can’t choose it, it will just be in bags.

  13. I really want the Jelly Pong Pong. There packaging is so cute.

    • Cute package. Horrible product. I have got things from them a couple times now (one was even at my request) but just no.. if you are used to high end product you’ll see what I’m talking about.. its like dollar store makeup.. I do hope for you though that this will prove me wrong!

  14. Requested the Pacifica Island Life Eyeshadow Palette, or if that wasn’t available some other sort of eye palette or brow product. I heard back almost immediately that the palette would be in my bag. I’m just hoping now that I’ll also get the Gimme Brow, since I mentioned a brow product to them…. 🙂

  15. I hope I get everything that’s in that picture except the brush. I think I’m good on brushes next month. I do want everything else. Lol

  16. I want to know what the bag is gonna look like lol 😩

    • Didn’t Ipsy used to give previews of the bag itself? Now you can’t see it until the 1st of the month.

  17. I would love the Estee Lauder make-up and the mellow lipstick. Also anything I can try for the eyebrows. I have plenty brushes and mascara.
    Blush too. I dont like bronzers or highlighters.
    I get these way to often.
    Thanks for listening!!

    • You have to email ipsy, not comment on the thread. They don’t see your comments here. Email them at [email protected] that way you can get your item selected! 😉

    • Charlotte, you can email Ipsy [email protected] and request one item for May- do it now- before April 30.

      You can also request to NOT have up to 2 types of items in your bag, such as brushes and mascara, or blush- pick he 2 you like least. Again you NEED to email

      [email protected] in order for Ipsy to make a note on your account.
