  1. I think it is time to quit Ipsy. If i thought last months bag was bad, this one is way worse.

    Marc Anthony curl thingy. (I wear wigs and requested no hair products.)
    Balm eyeshadow. (don’t like the balm)
    glamour dolls dinky blending brush. (dollar store quality brand)
    Pacifica coconut blush
    Belief Aqua bomb (requested)

    Not excited at all. I have Aqua Bomb from Sephora. Liked it but already tried it so it in not new to me. I just wanted an extra sample of it.

    • I don’t like The balm either, I tried to opt out, and they wouldn’t let me opt out of one brand.

      • Why don’t you like the balm and if u already have the item why did you request it? Just a tip but if you email ipsy you can opt out of two types of products I opted out of lip gloss and blush

    • Yes Wendy, it sounds like you need to quit ipsy, and find something that will actually make you happy.

  2. The only thing I want is Heart of the Gold Elixir by Gavee Gold AND I DIDN’T GET IT :'( So I’m secondly going to be ISO in my facebook BST group.

    I love half the stuff I received, this was a way better bag since I edited my profile.
    Silky Fit Concealer BB Power Brightening in Light Beige
    -First Aid Beauty
    Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay
    Yoghurt Mask Duo
    Monsieur Big Mascara
    -Firma Beauty
    103 Angled Contour Brush

    • Glam Bag twins! 💄👜💅

      $10 worth of happy surprises 😊

  3. Its so true they dont look at your profile i hate face mask yet im getting them this month i emailed them months ago that i didnt want any more eyeliner and mascara yet im getting it in my bag this month loved all my bags up till now. Not liking this bag this month . 🙁 and i never have any complaints about my bags i always love them.

    • SisiLCandy,

      When I emailed my opt-out choices to Ipsy in June, the representative told me I the opt-out would last for five months. Maybe your opt-outs expired and you need to email them again?

    • That’s funny because I was going to comment that the profile really does work. I have a lot unchecked like nail polish, lip products, face masks and blushes. I have opt-out on mascara and hair masks. I know that’s picky but I AM getting the actual things I list on my profile: cleanser, moisturizer, eyeshadow, eyeliner, and brush. Love Ipsy!

      • I opted out of the masks on my profile and it was only like 2 or 3 months ago i told them i didnt want eye liner or mascara

      • I agree! I actually think that they’ve gotten wayyyy better about taking our preferences into account since they changed the quiz. I used to find that checking ANY hair or skin care product preferences would get me way more of both than I wanted, but recently I bit the bullet and checked off the ones I’m interested in (eye creams and exfoliators). These last two months have been my best ever!

        I definitely think it’s always inevitable that you’ll get things you don’t like–either categories or specific products–but hopefully in time you can tailor yours a bit more to your preferences! I find reviewing with extremes (4 or 5 for things you want more of, even if the product itself sucks, 1 or 2 for things you don’t want again, even if you loved them) really helps too.

      • I opted out of eye liner and The Balm, but sure enough I still get tons of black eyeliner every month. I even emailed and requested no The Balm, and they told me that I cannot opt out of a specific brand. I did opt out of highlighters, though! 🙂 But sadly, I still got the shimmer bronzer this month :/

  4. I am getting:

    -Belif aqua bomb (I requested for this)
    -Pacifica blush duo
    -TheBalm eyeshadow (Both this brand and eyeshadows are unchecked on my profile so a bit disappointed)
    -Glamour Dolls blending brush
    -First Aid Beauty Deep cleanser with Red Clay (Cleanser is also unchecked)

    This month is my least favorite for sure. I wish they paid more attention to my preference. Oh wells you can’t have a fantastic bag every single time. Looking forward to next month’s goodies. 🙂

    • Same thing for me! Two of my products were unchecked! It’s really disappointing. There were so many wash off face masks, which I have checked, and I didn’t get one! They must have just put less effort into this one this time.

      • I was thinking about that too. They were probably slammed with whatever this month and did not have time to customize the bags. 😕

      • I really enjoyed my bags the last few months…with that said I am so disappointed this month!! The only thing i will use is the brow pencil I requested!!!

    • Leaving any product unchecked does NOT opt you out of it. The only way to opt out is to email them.
      In the FAQ’s they even tell you that and that they use your profile/reviews to get you the best bag combo with your likes, but they can’t promise you will love every thing.
      They have so many combos, each month. You’ll get the one best suited for you and that might have something unchecked included.

      • I was about to say that! I kind of interpret it as if checking something is saying “I love this!” and leaving it unchecked is saying “this is just okay.” I feel like ipsy’s default is to assume that we all are okay with receiving everything (because that’s the allure of getting a surprise subscription box) unless we explicitly opt out of something.

        Can’t say I don’t wish we could opt out of more, but I guess they gotta stay in business somehow! If companies are only willing to send them black eyeliner, they have to send SOMEONE that black eyeliner…

    • I have black eyeliner unchecked on my profile (but checked all the other colors), and this month I am receiving black eyeliner, so I emailed Ipsy about that because it seems like they actually had plenty of items this month that would have fit my preferences, so why did they send me an item I have specifically unchecked?

      This was the response I received: “I’m so sorry, but I’m not currently able to opt you out of a specific shade of product. For instance, I can make sure we don’t send you eyeliner, but our system doesn’t have a way to prevent you from getting black eyeliner while still receiving eyeliner in other shades.”

      But then I don’t get it, what is even the point of having a profile?? What is the point of making us select specific colors we are interested in receiving in every category of products?

      • The point of having the profile, (this is all IMO) is to try to tailor as much as possible to EVERYONE while still evenly distributing the products in a way that benefits everyone (us, ipsy and the brands) which means that everyone will be disappointed sometimes. I think customizing it more than they do, or having guarantees will either raise the price to us significantly or result in less of a variety of products overall or both.

        I think level of disappointment also depends on why each person signs up. I haven’t really been disappointed because my reasons for signing up was to get out of my makeup rut without wasting my money. I had literally been wearing the same drugstore makeup since the early 90’s with the occasional Sephora splurge which usually ended up with me going back to the same drugstore stuff again. Ipsy allowed me to stick with my old routine while trying a bunch of stuff out for minimal cost and minimal risk. It has allowed me to try colors and products and techniques I was too afraid to do before. I never even wore blush ever until last year, because of ipsy.

        I have a totally new makeup routine now and I am happy with it, but I still really enjoy ipsy and trying new things. Once in awhile I will get something I will never use no matter what (hot pink lip color is NOT me and it looks terrible) and those I either put aside to stuff in gifts or for my kids to use.

        I can see how it can be annoying or less useful/fun for others.

  5. This is what I’m getting? Should I be excited?

    Pacifica Coconut Blush Duo
    theBalm Cosmetics theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow in Willkommen or Kuwakaribisha
    sundays Nail Polish in No. 28 or No. 7
    Clarria Cosmetics Tinted Primer in Light or Toffee
    Hey Honey Come Clean: Propolis & Minerals Facial Scrub

    • Well, I like yours!

  6. Anyone else take a look through the products and notice that there’s not even one lip sample in the mix yet one of the bag designs is all about lipsick? Ironic. (I was really hoping for a lip product this month, but wow, not even one on offer!)

    • That is weird right?! And I love getting lip products!

    • I thought the same thing. I was hoping for a lip product too.

    • True. That’s so funny.

      Maybe next month is going to be unusually packed with lip products so they’re just getting the anticipation building.

      Speaking of which, I really hope for some brownish-reds in the future. Bright pinks, corals, and pale neutrals look so awful on me. I can pretty much only successfully wear my-lips-but-darker colors.

      • I’m so coral-ed & mauved out after all the Summer boxes! I must have at least 6 in the virtually the same shades to gift.

    • Well there are tons next month. Three on spoilers thus far.

  7. This is the second month in a row where I am looking forward to every single item in my bag!

    Aurora Pro Cover Up Concealer–one of three colors
    Vitamasques Yoghurt Mask Duo
    Air Repair Skincare Super-Hydrating Eye Cream
    theBalm Cosmetics Voltage Vol.2 Eyeshadow in Willkommen or Kuwakaribisha
    Naked Cosmetics HD Finishing Translucent Powder

    • Why don’t you like the balm and if u already have the item why did you request it? Just a tip but if you email ipsy you can opt out of two types of products I opted out of lip gloss and blush

  8. I’m much happier with Ipsy than I ever thought I’d be. This is my third bag and they’ve gotten better suited for me each time. I’ll be receiving:
    1.) belif the true cream- aquabomb
    2.) formula 10.0.6 pores be gone mud mask
    3.) makeup forever excessive lash mascara (my choice)
    4.) hikari shimmer bronzer in flush
    5.) Steve Laurant precision liner in black

    The only one I’m not thrilled about is the bronzer but that’s only because I am in highlighter and bronzer overload from other subs. I immediately removed it from my profile so next month should be amazing. It’s funny that I thought I’d cancel this after a month but it’s actually one of my favs.

    • It’s one of my faves too btw you can email ipsy support and opt out of two types of products

  9. I’m getting:

    Crown Brush
    SS035 – Medium Face Contour Brush (my request!)

    Coconut Blush Duo (I’m really excited to try this! Love blush.)

    Naked Cosmetics
    HD Finishing Translucent Powder (I haven’t been happy with my usual setting powder lately, so perfectly happy to try this)

    Monsieur Big Mascara (I like getting mascara, though since so many irritate my eyes I’m always a bit cautious…)

    Promise Organic
    Nourishing Coconut Milk Face Lotion with Hibiscus (I really like trying new natural skin care brands, but this contains fragrance, which I’m sensitive to, so I may not be able to use it)

    Overall a pretty good bag.

    • I’m getting the exact same stuff! But I don’t wear blush, have 30 billion brushes already, am super sensitive to unknown lotions and creams, and have more mascaras than I know what to do with. Oh, well. More stuff for my kids!

  10. I got:
    *Catrice Cosmetics Highlighter in Champagne Campaign (meh, I don’t use highlighter on the reg, prob give away to my sister or niece)

    *EYEKO Black Magic Mascara (love my elf Mineral mascara fo life – give this away likely)

    *Leaders Cosmetics Sheet Mask Duo (have to find out if cruelty-free)

    *Clarria Cosmetics Tinted Primer (yes! if cruelty free)

    *Steve Laurent Eye Liner (my request)

    If anyone one knows the animal testing status on these, I’d appreciate it.

    • Bag twins! 🙂

      I’m a first time subscriber and I’m pretty happy with my bag this month!

    • *EYEKO Black Magic Mascara (love my elf Mineral mascara fo life – give this away likely)

      I LOVE LOVE LOVE this Mascara!

  11. This month isnt exactly exciting for me, but its a really good fit over all, im getting:
    – sunday nail polish (love all nailpolish)
    -Vitamasques Yoghurt Mask Duo (requested)
    – Seraphine Botanicals LIQUID COAL WATERPROOF LIQUID LINER (meh, its ok)
    – MAKE UP FOR EVER EXCESSIVE LASH Arresting Volume Mascara (love trying new mascaras)
    – A. True Green Tea Calming Cream (very happy to get a moisturizer for oily skin!)

    Over all they did great, though not a fan og thw bag at all, hopefully someone on swaps will love it more then i haha.

    • That MakeUp ForEver mascara is the BOMB.COM!

      I’m so embarrassed to say that, but it is. I have a sample size from Play! & I carry it with me for emergencies.

  12. For the first time since I joined last fall, I hate my bag. Another mascara, another concealer, though I never asked for either to be removed. But I did request no more eyeliners, because I got three black eyeliners which I’ll never wear, and I’m getting another one this month. Also getting my third brow pencil.

  13. Is anyone getting AURORA Pro Color Corrector in Pistachio, what is this?? Did anyone have experience with this product?

    • Actually wish I was getting this. You use green to cancel out any redness, and I’ve been meaning to get a green concealer or primer for a while now (I have ruddy cheeks).

      • Mary, I am very pale and last thing I need is green. I will be happy to trade with you. My name should be linked to my swap profile. I have not listed it, but as soon as I receive it, I will

  14. I’m happy! First time to get 5 items I’m excited about.

    – A. True green tea calming cream
    – FAB red clay cleanser
    – Crown Brush med face contour brush
    – the Balm eyeshadow
    – Steve Laurent tip eyeliner (my choice)

  15. I love my ipsy bag. As always.
    Getting the same as Liz, the only thing that’s different is mine had face mask instead of pore mask. But I’m happy. Thank you Ipsy

  16. 1. theBalm eyeshadow
    2. sundays nail polish
    3. Makeup Forever mascara
    4. Secret Key Nature Recipe Sheet Masks
    5. Hey Honey Come Clean facial scrub

    I’m really happy with the bag this month and I do feel like Ipsy has been paying attention to my profile and opt out requests.

    I love theBalm vintage-esque packaging, and eye shadows are always welcome. I was hoping for another mascara (I’m searching for one that doesn’t make my eyes sting), and I love sheet masks.

    I’m crossing my fingers for the pink nail polish. My profile says pastels & neutrals, so if they look at that and don’t pick a color randomly, I should get pink. I need a pretty neutral to paint my nails so I stop biting them.

    I’m not quite as enthusiastic about the facial scrub (I’d have preferred the translucent powder) but I’ll give it a try. It’s nice that it’s supposed to be gentle, and I like that it has natural propolis in it.

    • Lydia, you can email customer service & ask to receive a mascara in your August bag.

      • Thanks, Marion. I did get a mascara in this bag like I was hoping, but I actually purposely didn’t request anything so I could see what my profile + opt-outs would produce. I’m very happy with the result (although I had checked “yes” for powder and left face scrubs blank, and I got a face scrub and no powder, but I guess there’s always a random).

        • P.S. I’ve been thinking about requesting the Sepember mascara, because the reviews of it are so great and sound like what I’m looking for, but I want to see what else is going to be requestable for that month.

  17. I’m getting the:

    – Winky Lux peeper perfect concealer in medium
    – Pacifica coconut blush duo
    – theBalm eyeshadow
    – Marc Anthony curl cream
    – Sundays nail polish

    I am pretty happy with my box this month. I was hoping for a brush though.

  18. My bag is a little boring this month.

    theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow in Willkommen or Kuwakaribisha
    Seraphine Botanicals liquid coal waterproof liquid liner
    Naked Cosmetics HD Finishing Translucent Powder
    Promise Organic Nourishing Coconut Milk Face Lotion with Hibiscus
    SLMissGlam T35 Precise Blending Brush (my request)

    • were getting the same thing i am with you boring not to happy this month

  19. Im getting the Catrice Cosmetics highlighter in champagne, CLIV Max Hylauronic Mask, theBalm cosmetics Voyage vol.2 eyeshadow in Wilkommen, SLMissGlam T35 precise blending brush, and Make up forever Excessive aressting volume mascara.

  20. I’m getting:

    – theBalm Cosmetics
    theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow in Willkommen or Kuwakaribisha

    -Seraphine Botanicals
    Liquid Coal Waterproof Liquid Liner

    – sundays
    Nail Polish in No. 28 or No. 7 (requested No. 28)

    Excessive Lash Arresting Volume Mascara

    – Juliette Has a Gun
    Not a Perfume (requested)

    This is only my 5th bag, but I’m happy with everything! I’ve always tended to stick with the same few beauty products, and not experiment or take risks, so I love being able to try new products that I wouldn’t typically purchase, at such a great price. I look forward to my bag each month!

  21. I’m actually pretty excited about my bag this month! I got:

    belif The true cream- aqua bomb (I have tried the moisture bomb version, so I am super excited to try this one!)

    Vitamasques Yoghurt Mask Duo (I’m always up to try new masks. Plus, it’s a pack of two!)

    Crown Brush SS035- Medium Face Contour Brush (I’m always in need of new brushes, so this is perfect!)

    Pacifica Coconut Blush Duo (I have never tried Pacifica blushes, but the colors look super pretty and the formula is nice so I will definitely give this a try!)

    EYEKO Black Magic Mascara Deluxe (I guess I will try this, but it seems like I’m getting a mascara every month. I might have to take this out of my beauty preferences.

    Favorite Product: belif The true cream- auqua bomb

    • I think you will like the Aqua Bomb. I think most people who get that sample really like it.

  22. I am done! I am getting another black eyeliner and a brush. I have gotten them six months in a row! I review and say nooo! I still get them! Tons of items I would have liked. They pay no attention to my reviews or profile!

    *FAB Red Clay Cleanser
    *Eyeko Black Magic Mascara
    *Seraphine Botanicals Liquid Coal Waterproof Liquid Liner
    *Firma Beauty Angled Contour Brush
    *LXMI Creme Due Nil Pore Refining Moisture Veil

    • Just FYI, you can email Ipsy support and ask for them to permanently exclude eyeliners and brushes from your glambags. I did that for eyeliners and mascaras and I haven’t received either since. They told me that I can select up to two categories to exclude and that they could not exclude specific formulas or colors. I asked for no matte or brown lippies but they said I would need to exclude all lipsticks/ glosses in order to avoid those.

      I don’t know if this is standard practice or if the person I communicated was just super nice. Worth a try though if you’re still interested in subbing.

      • I am already opted out of nail polish, eye-shadow & bronzer/contour

    • You have to specially send a email to opt out of a category. I kept getting eyeliner that I said ‘no’ to in my profile. Once I sent the email, all was good!

      • Yup, I had to email them about No Nail Polishes!!!

  23. I’ve been on the fence for a bit with ipsy. Some months are awesome and some are duds, which is to be expected, but despite reviewing and updating my profile, I feel like mine are getting progressively worse. May was good, July had a lot of practical items but was boring (brush, toner, black pencil liner, etc), and now I’m not excited at all about any of my items for August:

    *Make Up For Ever Excessive Lash – Most mascaras, regardless of brand, weigh my lashes down and make them stick straight. My go-to never fails me so I rarely stray! I think I’ll just opt out of mascara.
    *Secret Key Nature Recipe Sheet Mask Duo – These look good
    *Hikari Shimmer Bronzer – I was really hoping for a bronzer, just not one so shimmery and pink! Luckily it’s something I think my sister would love.
    *Paula Dorf Brow Pencil – just got the BrowGal pencil last month…
    *Steve Laurant liquid liner – my choice, mostly because I seem to be the only subscriber who never gets liquid liner and it is my go to.

    Everything will get put to use, either by me or one of my sisters, but nothing was really stand out or fun. I’ll give it another month or so but I’ll probably be taking a hiatus soon.

    • Personally, I have reviewed and updated several times and still get nothing I will use for the most part. I took a break and came back, but having the same issues. I think Ipsy is just not for me. Oh, well…..

    • Cris, I’m curious – what is your go-to mascara?
      I’m trying to find the perfect mascara (one that doesn’t make my lashes clump or my eyes sting).

      • I have been using Super Lash Mascara by Apple for years. It is a Mexican brand that is super cheap, but it stay put all day, holds a great curl, there are zero clumps, and adds a lot of volume. Sometimes I find a little smudging under the eyes, but mostly when it’s humid out, and I’ve found that using a little powder under my eyes keeps it from happening. I love it, I think of it as hair spray for my lashes, like 80’s major volume AquaNet, but they don’t ever feel stiff or heavy, and it is still easy to take off.

        I can’t say for sure what their entire ingredient list consists of, but they use a lot natural ingredients, such as aloe and seed oils. Their mascara wand is huge! Literally looks like a mini pine tree, so if you don’t like big wands, you probably won’t like it. It is also a drier formula, but I think both of those things are what make it work for me.

        I have very long but straight lashes and I’ve had really good experiences with it. Very few mascaras work on me, usually only waterproof, and even then, none are as good as these. I ask my mom to stock up for me when she goes to Mexico because it is super inexpensive, I’m talking like less than $3, but I just found them on Amazon for $5 a piece. I have also had luck finding them at Mexican supermarkets in the Chicago area, and swap meets/flea markets when I visit LA. They have a lot of options, but I usually stick to the Super Lash in the yellowish tube with avocado or mamey oil. Packaging looks really cheap, but the product is awesome!

        Sorry for being long winded, but it is no doubt my favorite make up product of all time.

        • Cris, that’s great info, not long winded at all! I probably never would have heard of Apple mascara if you hadn’t mentioned it, but now I’ll keep an eye open for it.
          (Wouldn’t that be a fun, unexpected product to find in an Ipsy bag? They could give us a set of 5 of them for the price of one of the usual mascara samples. 🙂 )

  24. I think I need to cancel. I am getting four eye make up products. I don’t even use any. CS says they can’t guarantee that I won’t get any! I don’t have them selected in profile either. So sad. I want to like IPSY.

    • Jody,

      I emailed Ipsy and opted out of eye liners and blushes, and I haven’t gotten any since. If you don’t end up cancelling, I definitely recommend opting out of two eye products so you at least reduce the number you get.

      I also tried not-answering the profile preference questions for items I don’t want at all (for example, I just didn’t list any choices at all for blush or perfume). I don’t know if that makes a difference, but so far, so good.

  25. I’m getting:

    FAB skin rescue deep cleanser (love the brand!)

    Crown Brush – medium face contour (I’m ok with this)

    Eyeko magic mascara (the tube looks weird, but will try it)

    Promise Organic – nourishing coconut face lotion (okay, but I have so many samples of face lotions to go through)

    Sundays – Nail polish in 28 (I requested that color)

    I am disappointed in receiving only 1 make up item. The bag value is lower than others at around $40 – but still over what I paid.
    I’ll be happy with any of the bag options this month!

    • That mascara (for me anyways) is AMAZING, absolutely love it! Hope you enjoy it as much as i do.

    • Bag twins! I requested the Sunday’s nail polish No. 28 also! I was a little disappointed that I only received one makeup item, too. I’m still looking forward to getting my bag! So far I’ve been happy with my monthly selections! I wanted to try the FAB skin rescue cleanser so I’m pretty pleased.

  26. question: can anyone see which of the three bags they are receiving too?

    -pacifica coconut blush duo

    -aqua bomb (raise the roof, this was my requested item)

    -air repair eye cream

    -lancome monsieur big mascara

    -firma beauty contour brush

    my june and july glam bags were meh², i like this bag.

    • I can only see the bag from the email Ipsy sent me this morning. It shows the bag on the email.

  27. I’m actually pleased with my bag. Mascara, Hey Honey, duo facial cleanser, NAIL POLISH…i can’t get away from the dang eyeshadows but I’m still happy.

  28. -Pacifica Coconut Blush Duo
    -theBalm Cosmetics Vol. 2 Eyeshadow in Willkommen or Kuwakaribisha (hate getting these)
    -Leaders Cosmetics USASheet Mask Duo – What Happened Last Night? & Pore Gone for Good
    -Naked Cosmetics HD Finishing Translucent Powder
    -SLMissGlam T35 Precise Blending Brush (Yay)
    -Macadamia Moisturizing Shine Oil (used points)

  29. I am getting

    Pro Cover Up Concealer in Pale Ecru, Balmy Beige, or Caramel Syrup (hopefully in pale ecru. I am a ghost.)

    theBalm Cosmetics
    theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow in Willkommen or Kuwakaribisha

    FORMULA 10.0.6
    Pores Be Pure Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask

    T35 Precise Blending Brush (requested this)

    Hikari Cosmetics
    Shimmer Bronzer in Flush

    I didn’t like a lot of the spoilers this month, but I love my bag yet again. I will use everything!

  30. Last month was my favorite ipsy bag ever- loved every item. So, I can’t be too disappointed that some of this one is a miss for me.
    Juliette not a perfume (requested)
    Sundays nail polish (yay!)
    The balm shadow (yawn)
    Seraphine botanicals eyeliner (blah)
    Makeup for ever mascara (meh)
    The perfume and nail polish are worth the $10 to me, so it’s all good.

  31. I woke up at 1:28 a.m. (not on purpose) and checked Ipsy to see what I got.

    I’m getting:

    – SLMissGlam Blending Brush (requested)
    – Aurora Concealer
    – First Aid Beauty Red Clay Cleanser
    – Eyeko Mascara
    – Seraphine Liner

    It’s not as great as last month, but I’m still happy. My number one wanted item was the Derma E vitamin C serum, and I didn’t get it. There wasn’t a whole lot of other stuff I was really excited about, but given that, I was eyeing the concealer and the First Aid Beauty Red Clay Cleanser. I don’t have mascara or liner checked off, but I do use mascara and liner (not often for liner though).

  32. This is my second month with Ipsy and I’m pretty happy. I’m getting –
    Aurora Pro Cover Up concealer in pale ecru
    Derma E Vit. C concentrated serum
    Pacifica Coconut blush duo
    The Balm eyeshadow in Willkommen or Kuwakaribisha
    SLMiss Glam T35 precise blending brush

    I love Pacifica so I’m most excited about the blush duo. I’m reserving judgement on the Balm shadow until I have it and see the shade. I can use the blending brush, so that’s a win. I’m on the fence about the concealer and serum. I’ve got sensitive skin and don’t like experimenting with new skincare when it comes to my face. I doubt I’ll ever use the concealer. I’m curious as to which bag I get – I’m rooting for the Wild & Free one.

    • Im getting the exact same things! Bag twins!

      • 🙂

  33. Good job this month, Ipsy!

    I’m receiving:

    CATRICE COSMETICS Highlighting Powder in Champagne Campaign
    AURORA Pro Color Corrector in Pistachio
    Pacifica Coconut Blush Duo
    Air Repair Skincare Super-Hydrating Eye Cream
    EYEKO Black Magic Mascara Deluxe

    Pleeeeease send me either the Good Vibes Only or Wild and Free bag!! 🙂

  34. I’m getting the YADAH concealer BB cream, the balm voyage eyeshadow, Glamour Dolls blending brush, Vitamasques mask duo, and the Pacifica blush duo!

    • Bag twins

      • Bag twin here too

        • Bag twins 🙂

    • Me too! Me too!

  35. Bag #1 is mostly disappointing:
    1. A.True Green Tea Calming Cream – I will give this a try
    2. Air Repair Eye Cream – I’m always up for eye cream!
    3. Seraphine Botanicals eyeliner… so far so good! … but black. Sob. Why it gotta be black?!
    4. Be A Bombshell eyeshadow, yay! But it’s brown. Okay, metallic brown. Still…
    5. Mascara. That’s all I’ve got to say to that. I wish I could expunge all black eyeliners and black mascaras from my boxes for like, a year.

    Bag #2 is much better!
    1. Seraphine eyeliner. Guess I’ll have two up for swap. But! It’s the only duplicate item I got, so that part’s cool. Onward to…

    2. theBalm Balm Voyage eyeshadow. Hoping for the peach one, but brown is okay because I love theBalm’s samples. Even though they’re only worth 60 cents to $1.40, I love their aesthetic and their puns and the little magnetized books. Anyone know what are those actually called?

    3. Promise Coconut Milk Face Lotion. Oops, just now remembered that my husband has a hard time with coconut scents, so I might have to find a new home for this too. I like that I got it anyway.

    4. sundays Nail Polish. Well. I do love nail polish. I don’t care for most pastel makeup, as it just makes me look even more washed out. And I don’t “get” the aesthetic of grays and such, but plenty of people don’t get my over-the-top tendencies, especially at my age, so it’s all cool. Maybe I can find a color to put these with that will look interesting.

    5. Paula Dorf eyebrow pencil. Confession time: I still haven’t used any brow products. It would mean plucking my all-over-the-place Brooke-Shields-times-three brows, something I’ve never done. Or I could just block them like drag queens do and draw on totally new ones. That might be cool anyway, since I have hooded eyes, and it would give me more room to play with.

    I love the bags and will be swapping for what I don’t get. An interesting note about web browsers. I use Firefox as my main browser, and the one I look at bag #1 with. For bag #2 I usually use Chrome so I don’t have to keep logging in and out of two accounts. Firefox doesn’t show me that cool little doodled timeline at the top of the page; I wouldn’t even know it’s there. It also doesn’t show me the MSA user ratings of boxes at the bottom of review pages. Annoying, but using Chrome (or Safari or anything else) as my primary browser is even more annoying.

  36. Here’s what’s in mine:
    ~theBalm Cosmetics theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow ~
    ~Seraphine Botanicals Liquid coal Waterproof liquid liner
    ~Clarria cosmetics tinted primer
    ~Sundays nail polish
    ~Secret key Nature Recipe Mask Pack Duo
    It’s valued at around $70 which is a great value! But I’m really disappointed again this month. Yet another month in a row I’m getting items I won’t use. Things I have said I don’t use. I do not use liquid eyeliner and I do not use the color black. And the eye shadow as well is another one I will never use. I can add it to my container full. I’m also not thrilled to get nail polish either as I have it marked to not get it. Sigh… I have loved ipsy but the past few months although I have gotten high value products have been products that I will never use. There are only so many stockings I can stuff full of makeup.

  37. Pacifica Coconut Blush Duo – I don’t really wear blush, but this will be nice to have.
    Super-Hydrating Eye Cream by Air Repair Skincare – I do need an eye cream
    theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow in Willkommen or Kuwakaribisha by theBalm Cosmetics -God, I hope it isn’t the mud color
    HD Finishing Translucent Powder by Naked Cosmetics – Just got the Bare Minerals powder fro BoxyCharm, but I can always use more
    T35 Precise Blending Brush by SLMissGlam – I requested this and the color is so pretty

    • I will say that Ipsy goes right off my profile. I don’t have theBalm checked, but I like to try new brands and products (otherwise, why do this). I, also, after having a horrible experience with Sephora and bag envy, changed my age to 30 on my profile. NOT that ipsy was doing anything wrong, but I was getting crap from Sephora and didn’t want to take the risk with ipsy. There’s always a way for me to use everything. I am not a fan of the Cougar lippy from last month (the formula) but I get so many compliments on it and it is not a shade I would have chosen for myself. I think I will keep ipsy for a long time and am I the only one who is STOKED to see what the beauty subs start coming out with this fall? It’s my favorite time of year and I cannot wait for dark reds, coppers, smoky, metallics, and drama!!

  38. So I’m getting
    Aurora pro cover concealer
    Crown medium contour brush
    Serapine botanicals liquid coal liner
    Lancôme Monsieur big mascara
    Promise organics nourishing coconut face lotion
    Overall, pretty great month.

  39. So disappointed in my bag this month, I’m receiving:
    A. True Green Tea Calming Cream
    Vitamasques Yoghurt Mask Duo
    EYEKO Black Magic Mascara Deluxe
    Crown Brush SS035 – Medium Face Contour Brush ( which I requested & is the only good thing I’ll keep)

    • I LOVE that mascara, if you havent tried it you should give it a chance!

      • I have sooo many mascara samples I might try it but I’m just tired of getting the same items 😪

  40. Im getting the yadah concealer (nice), the pacifica palette (YAAY!), the Gavee gold elixir (request), eyeko mascara, and the firma beauty angled contour brush (yes!). Overall, a great bag! Now just crossing fingers for the blueish of pinkish-white variation ^.^

  41. I’m pretty excited about my bag this month! I’m receiving the following:

    Belif Aqua Bomb
    • My request!

    theBalm eyeshadow
    • I *love* any and all theBalm products

    First Aid Beauty cleanser
    • Great brand and I’m always looking for new cleansers!

    Glamour Dolls Blending brush
    • I don’t like brushes but I’ve been wanting to try a blending brush

    Pacifica Blush Duo
    • The only disappointing item. Pacifica products have awful color payoff.

    I am always excited to receive products from theBalm! Yes, their sample sizes are small but oh well. I’ve had no problems using their blush samples– just use a decent brush, twirl it in the blush and tap the excess powder off. The Balm Springs blush was the blush I never knew I needed. So in love with it!

    • Bag twin! I also requested the belif cream!

    • I’m getting this bag too. Bummed that when I have super dry skin I’m getting a red clay skin product for oily skin. I don’t really need the other items and am glad the belief moisturizer is in there (my choice) but not sure that tiny sample is worth $10. Gonna see how next month goes. I’ve been happy with boxycharm so may just stick w that.

  42. So Weird. I’m getting exactly that.

    • Same except for the Seraphine Botanicals
      Ginger + Gold replaces the balm shadow

  43. I am so happy with my bag. I am getting
    Pacifica dual blush
    Juliette has a gun perfume (request)
    Naked translucent powder.
    Sunday nail polish
    The balm eye shadow.

    I did not want the balm but considering the size and value of my other items its almost like its a free sample.

  44. Just signed up for ipsy again. Had a little issue, they double charged me for 3 months, ugh. They are taking care of the 2nd charge. My account still shows I am paid for 6 months, hopefully they will fix that too.

    I am getting:
    Catrice highlighting powder
    Cliv max hyaluronic mask
    theBalm eyeshadow
    SLMissGlam T35 precise blending brush
    Make Up For Ever mascara

    I am also receiving a “freebie” for signing up again. Not sure what that will be.

  45. I have a couple of dupes between my bags but am otherwise really happy!

    Bag #1:
    -Crown Brush Medium Face Contour Brush SS035 (likely keeping)
    -Pacifica Coconut Blush Duo (keeping)
    -The Balm Eyeshadow in Willkommen or Kuwakaribisha (keeping)
    -Leaders Sheet Mask Duo in Pores Gone for Good and What Happened Last Night (keeping)
    -Hey Honey Come Clean: Propolis & Minerals Facial Scrub (keeping)

    Bag #2:
    -Vitamasques Yoghurt Mask Duo (keeping)
    -Pacifica Coconut Blush Duo (swapping since it’s a dupe of Bag #1)
    -The Balm Eyeshadow in Willkommen or Kuwakaribisha (keeping unless it is a dupe of Bag #1)
    -Naked Cosmetics Translucent Finishing Powder (keeping)
    -SLMissGlam T35 Precise Blending Brush (keeping)

  46. I’ll be getting:
    – Aurora cosmetics concealer
    – Belif aqua bomb
    – Josie Maran foundation
    – TheBalm eyeshadow
    – Paula Dorf eyebrow pencil

    I didn’t request anything this month, and I’ll probably use everything in my bag, except maybe the eyeshadow. Not bad

  47. First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay

    theBalm Cosmetics theBalm Voyage Vol. 2 Eyeshadow in Willkommen or Kuwakaribisha

    EYEKO Black Magic Mascara Deluxe

    Naked Cosmetics HD Finishing Translucent Powder

    sundays Nail Polish in No. 28 or No. 7

    That’s what I’ll be getting in my bag. Besides the powder which I feel meh about, I’m happy with my bag this month!

  48. Aww you’re Bag items are better mine not good how do you get these good items Liz?

  49. Ahahahaha. Just my luck. A couple of days ago I jumped at one of the daily offers (bare face, bold lip??) mostly because I wanted to try the Pacifica blush duo in it. Guess what’s in my bag this month!!! Oh well…overall I’m still excited and the stuff they choose is obviously a good fit for me. 😉

  50. Bag twins!

    • 👯 I’m excited for the nail polish!

      • Me too! It is something I normally would not be able to splurge on, but now I get to enjoy it! Really hope the concealer BB cream matches since that sounds like a product I will love.
