  1. Bummed i didn’t get the Hourglass mascara. I’m a total mascara junkie and was hoping to get one through a subscription. Guess I’ll just have to break down and BUY it (the horror!)/jk.

  2. I’m actually really happy with my bag, even though I keep asking not to get eyeshadow every month and had unmarked it the last 2 months.

    -Marc Anthony frizz treatment (actually needed a hair mask)

    -Elizabeth Mott face primer(actually needed a new primer)

    -Winky Lux Ursula eyeshadow(wanted to try this brand awhile, love the color and packaging)

    -Luxie WW brush(love it! And don’t have a brush this shape)

    -Dr. Brandt exfoliator(excited to try this because I can’t really afford the full size of something like this without knowing it works for me and always use scrubs)

    This is also a really nice mix of product types, which I very much prefer over bags heavily in one particular category. I also love this month’s bag design. It’s one I will actually use.

    • Bag twin!

  3. I don’t like my bag this month except for the brush. I’m always happy for a brush.

    I got brown eyeshadow-yuck
    Orange-ish looking bronzer-nope
    Scrub-not a fan
    Matte primer-no thanks

    I really want a Harley Quinn brush and either the gunmetal or purple eyeshadow.

    Ipsy is so hit and miss. It gets frustrating because I love the anticipation and excitement at the beginning of the month when you actually get a good bag-which is only about 4 times a year, sadly.

  4. I’m ok with this month’s bag. I will be getting:

    Luna Cosmetics Translucent Powder – I hate setting powders and will not be using this.

    Marc Anthony Bye Bye Frizz Miracle Treatment – I like Marc Anthony products and I said yes to this on my survey so I’m excited to try.

    Trestique Mini Lip Glaze in English Rose or Mumbai Magenta – Hoping for the English Rose, but I’ll be happy with either one. Another product I said yes to on my survey.

    Hourglass Cosmetics Mascara – This is the third month in a row for mascaras for me. I’m on mascara overload so not excited for this.

    Winky Lux Eyeshadow in Ursula – I’m on the fence about this eyeshadow since I don’t wear dark colors. I checked naturals on my profile, but Winky Lux gets great reviews so I’ll definitely try it out.

    I would rate my bag 3/5 stars for September.

  5. Woohoo I got the wonder woman brush!!! I didn’t care which type of brush it was as long as it was we. I know it may sound silly, but Wonder woman is kinda my inspiration as I battle a severe rare autoimmune disease. And I needed this happy news as I’m i’n the hospital currently. It’s the little things to look forward to and keep smiling. So thank you ipsy!

  6. I’ve come full circle, after shopping around cheap beauty boxes I ended up coming back to ipsy. It was the first box I tried, cancelled in search of greener pastures, didn’t find any at a low price point lol. So I’m back 😃

  7. Overall I really like my bag this month! This is my third month with Ipsy and I’m still happy with my subscription, even though this bag isn’t perfect for me. I’m getting-

    Luna by Luna Cosmetics Translucent Powder – This is the thing I’m least excited about. I’ll give it a shot of course, but I don’t use translucent powders and haven’t read good reviews about this one.

    Luxie Beauty Harley Quinn Detail Flat Definer 110 – I don’t really need this brush, and I don’t really care for it. I’m either going to trade it with someone on reddit or give it to a friend that loves Harley Quinn.

    Winky Lux Eyeshadow in Ursula – I’m really excited for this one! I love the brand and that purple shade is lovely!

    Smashbox Cosmetics Always On Liquid Lipstick in Babe Alert – YES! I got the Huda liquid lip last month and now I’m getting this, and I adore that shade! I’m really happy.

    Eva NYC Satin Dream Leave-In Cream – I’m excited to give this one a try! I’m always looking for something to smooth my frizzy hair without weighing it down since it’s so fine.

  8. I have 2 bags. I’m wondering what happened to the big red WW brush? (Its why I stayed subbed…I’m glad I did though. I love my bags…and no repeat items, except eyeshadows and brushes, but they are different kinds, woo hoo!)

    I wanted the brush, the 111skin eyelids gel, the winky lux eyeshadow, touch in sol primer, and the kush mascara…I’d say that I made out pretty well. I chose 3 items in the “improve my glambag” section.

    1st bag:

    Space Defence Bright Eye Lift Gel (chose)

    Photo Finish Primerizer (chose)

    Eyeshadow in Ursula

    -EVA NYC
    Satin Dream Leave-in Cream

    Wonder Woman Detail Tapered Blender 140

    2nd bag:

    Eyeshadow Duo in Nemesis and Medusa (the only item that I don’t care for, I have a lot of brown eyeshadows…I’ll gift this)

    Harley Quinn Detail Flat Definer 110

    Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator

    Berry Lip Fix

    No Poreblem Primer (chose)

    • For poi ts I’m getting:
      -the ella eden eyeshadow in the shade ‘Alex’.
      -the Steve Laurent eyeshadow in the shade ‘blossom’.

      And my freebie they are sending is the “BIO-OIL – Multiuse Skincare Oil”.

    • Hi, what is the “Improve Your Glambag” section? Do we get to select 3 items? Thanks!

      • It shows you upcoming items and you indicate whether or not you would want them. There’s no guarantee you will get all the items you like, but it does give them a better idea of your preferences.

  9. I actually kinda want to put ‘Return To Sender ‘ on my Glambag when it gets here. I’m scratching my head at their so called personalization algorithm. How many times do you have to rate something as low as you can but still keep getting the same things over and over and over again?! Yes, I know about opting out and the survey but nothing seems to change. I don’t wear eyeshadow anymore but I get a new eyeshadow brush nearly every single month? I don’t wear lipstick but should I get it, nude is not a color I want or have marked but that’s what I’m getting. It’s lighter than my skin!🤢 There are plenty of products that would have been a great match for but I’m stuck with crap that makes zero sense. I will only be using 2 tiny skincare samples. Might as well restart play by Sephora! Ipsy seems to have adopted their non-matching habit and tiny sizes. The other 3 items are 100% not for me at all! I’ve been with ipsy for YEARS! 2018 has been the crappiest year so far when it comes to ipsy’s Glambag match! I even find the bag childish. It would be really cute without those painted on white eyelashes. Ipsy can’t get their $10 Glambag matching right and now they want me to pay $25 a month for the same thing only full size products?! No thanks! Too bad ipsy no longer truly personalizes. It used to be great! They have also forgotten that their customers are not all 21. So ready for my subscription with ipsy to expire!

  10. This is what I am getting in my bag this month! I like 3 out of the 5 items!

    2-in-1 Facial Foam Cleanser (I like trying different cleansers, great for travel)

    Mini Lip Glaze in English Rose or Mumbai Magenta (Happy about this)

    Bronzer (Don’t need anymore bronzers)

    Around-The-World Light Infusion Highlighting Powder in Positano Sunrise (Don’t need anymore highlighters but hoping to use this as a blush)

    Wonder Woman Brush (Love these brushes)


  11. I really wanted the turmeric mask 🙁 it sucks bc I have acne prone skin and that would have been perfect for me but of course I don’t get to try it…and I would have much rather gotten the gunmetal or purple shadows over brown but oh well..I got the brushes so I’m pretty happy plus the bag is so so so cute!

  12. TOTALLY refined my profile and except for forgetting to uncheck ” frizzy” for my hair concerns, my bag is totally what I love. Also having the advance products for liking or not liking has helped a great deal from the mess I got a year ago. I’m getting:

    HOURGLASS COSMETICS Caution Extreme Lash Mascara

    HEMPZ Triple Moisture Herbal Whipped Body Cream

    PRETTY WOMAN Nail Polish in Nude or Nothing

    EVA NYC Satin Dream Leave-in Cream ( I won’t use this)

  13. Very happy with my bag this month!

    Luna finishing powder, Trust Fund polish, Winky Lux shadow, Luxie WW brush, & GLOW moisturizer.

    I’m so glad I’m finally getting a powder from them so I can rate it high & hopefully get more — this brand seems cheap, but I do have a highlighter from an Ipsy offer from Luna that I like. I love Trust Fund, said Yes to it in Improve Glam Bag hoping there would be another color besides burgundy, so I’m SUPER hoping for the Mermaid shade. The Winky Lux shadow is not the right shade for me (dark purple makes me look bruised) but I like the brand & I’m excited to try the formula. I almost always get a Luxie brush from Ipsy if I have the “tools” category checked, so I tweaked my profile angling for it this month. I’m not too excited about the vanilla scent of the Glow moisturizer, but I’ve seen this brand on ipsy frequently and I’ve been wanting to try it.

  14. I just got off skipping a month and am so excited for my bag to get here! (My husband complained I’d taken over the bathroom cabinet. Booo!)

    It looks like my favorite month yet. I’m getting:

    The morphe highlighter. I discovered I really like highlighter after trying a peel back sample from ulta so I had hoped for this! I went into my profile and made sure it was one of the few things I had checked.

    The pretty woman nail polish – I definitely wanted that.

    The avocado botanic farm face masks. I love masks and always rate them high.

    The m princess pretty petal eyeshadow. I like subtle colors like this. I hope it’s subtle.

    The manna kadar priming lip wand. Color is a bit dark for me but I’ll see what I think in person. I mean, I have another color lip thing from Ipsy I didn’t think I’d like and now I’m planning to buy more so it could be good.

  15. Love my bag this month! Doucce blush, Hempz lotion, Milk Kush mascara (yes!!!), Bellapierre lipstick, Dr. Brandt exfoliant! I would’ve picked out these exact products on my own so I am one happy girl😊

  16. I think Ipsy’s profile match algorithm is off again. I emailed cs a few months ago suggesting they check their algorithm because so many are not being matched up with their profiles and my bags were really spot on for 3 months. However, this month is a miss for me. Got 2 things that weren’t selected on my profile and this is the first time in a long time. Time to reach out to cs again. Maybe they need better programmers? Are they hiring because I’m a computer science major and I want to fix this algorithm! lol Better luck to everyone in October! *fingers crossed*

  17. Bag #1:
    Jo Hansford hair mask (don’t really like getting hair products because I already have too many but they’re mostly styling products so at least this is different)

    Manna Kadar Lip Locked Priming Lip Wand in Bella (love the color but really wanted the Trestique)

    The Creme Shop 2 in 1 foam cleanser (was definitely aiming for this in my profile preferences)

    Luxie Beauty Harley Quinn brush (yay! Didn’t even know this was a possibility)

    Smashbox Primerizer (another product I was specifically aiming for)

    Bag 2:
    Luxie Beauty Wonder Woman brush (the item I wanted the most! I LOVED WW when I was little)

    Touch In Sol primer (boo! Already got this in Birchbox)

    LXMI Creme Du Nil (as long as it’s not as heavy as their balm which made my face so oily)

    Grace & Stella hair mask (again, don’t like hair products but I definitely prefer masks if I must get them)

    Hourglass Cosmetics mascara (YESSSS! The other thing I wanted most. I am a mascara fiend and this one is pretty new and highly rated)

    Overall I am VERY happy with both bags. A few misses but I got most of the exact products I wanted.
    (4/5). Definitely my best bags so far.

  18. I’m getting the Trestique lip color. Hopefully in English Rose. Mumbai Magenta is a bit fuschia for my taste.

    Finally getting purple eye shades. Yay!

    Not getting the WW brush, am getting Harley Quinn brush. That’s okay. I’m willing to gamble on the WW brush being for sale later this month.

    • Also discovered that the Marc Anthony product I’m getting is a deep conditioner and not a styling aid. Finally!!

      Not unhappy that I’m not getting any skin care since I’m on a strict regimen until the dermatologist says otherwise.

  19. I am totally happy with everything I am getting this month!!

    TRÈSTIQUE–Mini Lip Glaze in English Rose OR Mumbai Magenta

    LUXIE BEAUTY–Harley Quinn Detail Flat Definer 110

    BRTC–Velvet Mask Duo

    TRUST FUND BEAUTY–Nail Polish in Kiss Kiss Darling and Mermaid Vibes

    WINKY LUX–Eyeshadow in Ursula

  20. Pretty happy with my bag! Here’s what I’m getting:

    High Impact Highlighter in Spark 3g

    Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator 7.5g

    Photo Finish Primerizer 4ml

    Créme Du Nil 15ml

    Insanely Intense Mini Tattooed Eyeliner .04oz

  21. This is what I’m getting:

    MANNA KADAR COSMETICS Eyeshadow Duo (Just okay)
    LUXIE BEAUTY Harley Quinn Detail Flat Definer (Excited)
    DR. BRANDT SKINCARE Microdermabrasion Age Defying Exfoliator (Excited)
    SKYN ICELAND Berry Lip Fix (Just okay)
    TOUCH IN SOL No Poreblem Primer (Excited)

    Overall, I really wanted a blush because I ran out.

    • Bag Twins!!
      I was actually thrilled NOT to receive a blush since Ipsy sends me one every other month (no exaggeration)!

  22. I am getting….

    HEMPZ Triple Moisture Herbal Whipped Body Cream. I am pretty excited to try this brand and I love body moisturizers a ton.

    MARC ANTHONY TRUE PROFESSIONAL Bye.Bye Frizz Miracle Treatment. This is the first hair item that Ipsy has sent me and I have been a subscriber for over a year. I am down for a hair mask and I like that this is color safe.

    TRUST FUND BEAUTY Nail Polish in Kiss Kiss Darling and Mermaid Vibes. I always have polish on my nails. If I get the red, I will keep it but the grey would be perfect for a friend of mine so she will get that if it shows up.

    SMASHBOX COSMETICS Photo Finish Primerizer. I can always use more primer and Smashbox’s primers are a big deal.

    WINKY LUX Eyeshadow in Ursula. I am a big Disney nerd so very happy to be getting this plus it’s my first time trying this brand.

    • Bag twins!

      • Really? I have never had a bag twin before! 🙂

      • Bag triplets!

  23. Here’s my bag…

    LUNA BY LUNA COSMETICS Translucent Powder: Not excited since the reviews don’t sound hopeful, and they just sent me another translucent powder a few months ago.

    NOYAH Lip Balm in Peppermint: I go through crazy amounts of lip balm so it will definitely get used. I wanted to try the Skyn lip fix instead though.

    TRÈSTIQUE Mini Lip Glaze in English Rose OR Mumbai Magenta: I don’t have lipsticks checked in my preferences, yet Ipsy continues to send me some practically every month. Very annoying, especially since I’m getting two lip products! Might try this depending on the color I get, otherwise it’s going to swaps.

    EVA NYC Satin Dream Leave-in Cream: Will definitely get used since it sounds right for my hair type, so I’m pretty satisfied with this.

    LUXIE BEAUTY Wonder Woman Detail Tapered Blender 140: Have already gotten brushes shaped like this. Would have preferred the little flat brush instead. But it’s better than more highlighter, bronzer, repetitive eyeshadow colors, etc.

    Rather disappointed with the contents, but the bag itself looks adorable. Most annoyed by the fact that I got NO skincare. I have way more skincare than makeup selected in my preferences and always rate it highly. Would have loved to try the turmeric mask or the 111Skin eye gel.

  24. I am super excited for my Ipsy much more than Boxy .
    Morphe: high impact highlighter in Spark
    Elizabeth Mott: Face primer
    Sol De Janeiro: Brazilian Bod Buff
    Doucce : check blush in RSVP
    APTO :healing turmeric mask.
    I will use everything and haven’t ever had a sub where I have used every single product
