  1. My bags have been awesome lately 🙂
    This month I’m getting
    -Absolute New York Single Shadow in VIP or Posse
    -Lue by Jean Seo Balance Hydrating and Calming Serum
    -Kokie Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick in Desire
    -The Balm Cosmetics Mary-Lou Manizer
    -SLMISSGLAM Tapered Highlight Brush

    I know everyone complains about the size of the balm samples but I love them because I usually fill each bag with items to create a full look !

  2. Are they seriously giving out a brush set? Is that correct?

    • No, they’re only giving out 1 brush from that set. It would be amazing if they did though!

  3. The majority of the six in getting is not up there which like I’ve said the last couple of months leafs me to believe in getting the scraps.
    ~Cake Body Balm… This is an item in excited about
    ~Void polish in a berry color which I don’t have marked on my profile bc I don’t wear those colors.
    Purlisse Blue Lotus Mud Mask…. Have it
    The Balm highlighter… I have a drawer full of highlighters, again not picked on my profile.
    Kokie liquid lipstick, I hope it’s not matte. I hope I can wear the color, I’m getting into lips, so I’m excited about this.

    So I’ll be swapping some things lol

  4. Ugh. I just checked on my bag and I got tweezers. Boooooo. I’m not an eyebrow girl so that stinks I’m getting something I won’t use at all. I’m also getting
    Oribe Dry Shampoo
    Trust Fund Beauty Lip Scrub (I got the lip scrub last month so I’m a little annoyed with this)
    The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer

    I was really hoping for the eye cream. Darn! Oh well. Maybe someone will want to swap for the tweezers. 😉

    • Me too, eyeshadow and lip stain and highlighter none of which I want or use, not checked off. This is my last ipsy bag, they’re going downhill, if they would stop sending things that you don’t have checked off. I know it’s to try new products but come on.

      • I don’t know if they’re still doing it but I was able to opt-out of 2 categories by emailing them. I also limited the things I check off on the survey and I make sure to always do my reviews. I give items I don’t want to receive bad reviews even if there’s nothing wrong with the product itself and its just not my thing. My bags have gotten way better since I did those things! Their customer service is actually really awesome and helpful.

  5. I cheated and looked at my bag.

    What’s in my bag:
    – CIATÉ LONDON Fierce Flicks Precision Tip Liquid Liner
    – Luna by Luna Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Juliet
    – Purlisse Beauty Blue Lotus 5-1 mud mask and exfoliant
    – Thebalm Cosmetics Mary-lou manizer
    – Hola Neon Velvet liquid lipsticks in DF

    Only one of the items in my bag was listed in this spoiler.

    • That Luna eyeshadow looks beautiful. Lucky you! Would you consider swapping it for my DLS eyeshadow? (not sure which shade I am getting)

      • Possibly. Need to see mine and know what shade you received. I have never swapped anything from a box subscription before.

        • hi, Redhed36. Sorry I took so long to respond.
          I have never actually swapped anything either, so if anyone has any tips on how to do a successful swap, please let me know (even if this time around doesn’t work out, it is still good to know).

          Do you mind if I contact you via this forum once I get my bag and you can decide?

          • Sure!

        • Hi, Redhed36
          I just got my bag yesterday and wanted to know if you were still interested in trading your Luna eyeshadow for my DLS eyeshadow.
          i got the shade “Bikini” which is the copper/bronze shade.
          Let me know if you are interested!

          • Sure. Not sure how to do it. LOL

          • honestly, i am not sure how to do it either.
            Would you like to email me : chavawolfson @ yahoo and we can try to come up with an idea.
            i am located in NJ, by the way.

          • Chava,
            I sent you an email. coming from av22881

  6. I’m getting the following:

    — I kinda like the bag….It’s funky, but those are usually the ones that I like better IRL.

    — Ciate London eyeliner ….. just in time as I’m in need of a good eyeliner.

    — Alterna Haircare Caviar CC Cream …… Excited to try this….

    — Purlisse Beauty Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask + Exfoliant ….. Not usually a fan of mud masks, but always need an exfoliant

    — City Color Cosmetics Contour Pallette…. Excited to try this and thankful that it wasn’t another eyeshadow….

    — Hola Neon Velvet Liquid Lipstick in DF…… I think this will be a good color for me…..

    Overall, I’m pretty happy with my bag this month!!!!!

  7. Was just able to see mine. I got 2 products shown here, the Briogeo charcoal shampoo and the Dirty Little secret eyeshadow. My other 3 aren’t listed here and are Void nail polish in Mauvelous, Cake beauty body balm, and NYX lip lingerie in either beauty mark or satin ribbon ( brown or browner😕). Not bad overall!

  8. I just went onto the website and mine is showing. I’m getting the following:

    Eye Artiste eye shadow
    Ciate eyeliner
    Vasanti contour eyeshadow brush
    BioRepublic sheet mask due (aloe and pomegranate)
    The Balm MaryLou Manizer

    I’m so excited to get mine this month!!

  9. Ok, I am getting:
    – Oribe Dry Shampoo (I hate dry shampoos)
    – Seraphine bonaicals Raisin lip crayon – happy
    – Dermelect microfacial exfoliating masque – happy
    – Dirty Little Secret eyeshadow – OK
    – Thebalm Cosmetics Mary Lou Mnaizer – not sure what it is
    Bag rate 3+/5

  10. “We’re still making your Glam Bag!

    Check back on 1/4 to find out what you’ll be receiving in your January Glam Bag!”

    This is what I am seeing on my account. Umm it is 1/4 Ipsy.

  11. I would be happy with every single item, except dry shampoo or contour pallet. So excited to find out tomorrow what I am getting.
    Ipsy such an exciting sub, even I have crates of make up and skincare, I just cannot let go of curiosity of Ipsy bag and five random unneeded items every months.

  12. I want those brushes so badly that I am certain I won’t get them.

    I wonder if it’s individual brushes or a whole set like pictured.

    Le sigh* 😔

    • Alex, I don’t want the brushes. Let’s see if I get them…

      • Oooooh! I hope you do!

    • I know I’m getting the brush because of the spoiler hack, and I’m definitely just getting the one! Very exciting still! 🙂

      • I have a set of the brushes from a while back and they really are nice.

    • I hope they are a cute lil set! Me too!! I’m sure I won’t! 🧜🏻‍♀️😢 lol

      • You deserve them! ♥️🧜🏽‍♀️

    • I’m getting one, it’s a single tapered highlighting brush, L36 from slmissglam, I like the feel of their brushes for travel bags etc

      • They make really nice brushes and they’re always pretty

  13. I LOVE the bag and I really really really want/need the mermaid 🧜🏻‍♀️ brushes oh my love love them!!!! 😩

  14. I’m not entirely sure why, but if there is a glaringly ugly lip color it always ends up in my bag…6 cute options and I always score the day glo fuchsia that nobody would be caught dead in. And an eyeliner.

    • I love fushia!!!! 💋

    • I love fuchsia lipstick. Speak for yourself

      • Lol! The funny thing is I always get nudes I hate nudes! Maybe we could be swap friends lol!

        • I’ll be your swap buddy! I love nudes. I’m super pale and the pinks look awful on me. I’m sure they look amazing on you 🙂

          • Thanks Beth! Let’s keep in touch!

      • Meow, I think she was speaking for herself. Rude much?

        • I know I don’t get why she was being rude, I even sent a nice comment back but whateves! I’ll always be kind it’s just my nature!

        • Yeah! Don’t get it! Whateves!

  15. Fingers crossed for the Briogeo Scalp Revial and the SLGlam Mermaid Brushes! If my bag contains either (or both) of those products, they could substitute the last 3 products with leftover Christmas tinsel and I wouldn’t care 🙂

    • Same here! I have the $11 trial pot of it in my Sephora basket.

  16. Wait a sec – a whole brush set??? they are worth 80$! :O

  17. I wish ipsy would start releasing spoilers earlier. I decided to skip January because my last couple bags have been kinda mediocre, but there are some cool products in this list. I’d love to try the Seraphine Botanicals lip stain. Chances are I wouldn’t have gotten it anyway sooo… maybe I made the right choice skipping. I may try my luck next month.

    • I skipped this month too since I didn’t care for the bag, but now I wish I hadn’t. There are some really unique items this month!

      • Sometimes they let you get the bag in the first couple of days of the month. Email them.

  18. There’s a lot of great stuff this month 😊 ❤️ 🤞 several of them I’d love to try this month so I can’t wait to see what I’m going to get this month either! Fingers crossed 🤞 for the oribe dry spray, the sheet mask, and the Briogeo scalp renewal… We shall see ❤️

  19. I do not regret my decision to skip. I only like a few lipsticks and 1 eye shadow. I already got contour palette and did not want to get it again . Tweezers are another option this month and I would have hated that. I hope February is better it is my birthday month.

  20. I got an email from Ipsy asking if I want to see what is in my bag but the link just takes me to the main page and it says to check back on Jan 4th to see what’s in my bag. Has anyone else been able to see what’s in their bag?

    • It’s doing the same thing with me too. I did notice that once I open the Ipsy link, it says the spoiler alert will be Jan 5th so maybe they messed up with the email and sent it a day early.

      • That’s weird because it still says “Check back on 1/4 to find out what you’ll be receiving in your January Glam Bag!” for me on the page the link takes me too and on the app. I checked the ipsy fb page for info, I don’t see anything about it from ipsy but there are several comments on their latest post from people having the same problem.

    • I had the same thing happen to me too. I hard closed the app on my phone and then reopened it and now I see what I’m getting:

      — I kinda like the bag….It’s funky, but those are usually the ones that I like better IRL.

      — Ciate London eyeliner ….. just in time as I’m in need of a good eyeliner.

      — Alterna Haircare Caviar CC Cream …… Excited to try this….

      — Purlisse Beauty Blue Lotus Seed Mud Mask + Exfoliant ….. Not usually a fan of mud masks, but always need an exfoliant

      — City Color Cosmetics Contour Pallette…. Excited to try this and thankful that it wasn’t another eyeshadow….

      Hola Neon Velvet Liquid Lipstick in DF…… I think this will be a good color for me…..

      Overall, I’m pretty happy with my bag this month!!!!!

      • We have the same bag except I got nail polish and you got contour lol

    • I just saw what was in both my bags

      • I was just finally able to see mine too. I’m very excited about my samples!

    • I’m able to see mine now and I’m pretty happy with what I’m getting:

      CIATÉ LONDON Fierce Flicks Liquid Eyeliner

      ALTERNA HAIRCARE Caviar CC Cream

      PRETTY WOMAN Nail Polish in Johnny’s Angels

      PŪR-LISSE BEAUTY Blue Lotus Seed 5-in-1 Mud Mask + Exfoliate

      HOLA NEON Velvet Liquid Lipstick in DF

  21. Wow. Several great options! I’m not a big fan of the bag, but that’s okay! I’ve loved most of them recently. Can’t wait to see what they select for me!

    • I agree the bag is eh but looks like great stuff coming our way!

      • Honestly I HATE the bag but you can’t please everyone so it’s fine. I’ve gotten bags in the past that I absolutely love and I’ve seen comments from others that they hated them so it all averages out in the long run. More important to me are the samples and there definitely appears to be some great options this month!
