Ipsy Glam Bag Plus October 2018 SPOILERS!

We have the spoilers for the October Ipsy Glam Bag Plus! FYI – There will be some variations. We do not know how many variations there will be, but 1 variation included:

ipsy glam bag plus october 2018

*Glam Bag Plus will always include 5 full-sized items. This unboxing shows six items but we haven’t confirmed that all bags receive six items yet.

And here’s a closer look at the bag! The bag design previously sent out to influencers will be the bag all subscribers will receive: 

FYI – even though this subscription is called Ipsy Glam Bag Plus, and it is a monthly subscription box, you will only get the makeup bag once every three boxes. You will get a makeup bag in your first box. (So this bag is the makeup bag all new subscribers will receive if their first box is the October Box, the November Box, or the December box.)

If your first box is the October box, you’ll receive this bag + 5 products in October, 5 products but no bag in November, 5 products but no bag in December, and then in January you would receive a new bag design + 5 products.

This one is a beautiful faux blush suede with burgundy accents. And there’s an outside card pocket:

Here I am holding it to give you a better sense of scale:

What do you think of the full spoilers? (FYI – you should be able to see what you’re getting in your first Glam Bag Plus on 10/2).

This subscription is $25 a month. Check out our full Ipsy Glam Bag Plus FAQ post to learn more!

And if you are new to the regular Ipsy, it is a $10 a month beauty and makeup subscription box. Check out all of our Ipsy reviews to see what’s been in past boxes. And check out our Ipsy Spoilers to see what’s coming up in future boxes!

  1. The palette is beautiful, btw. I received my box today. In fact, I think that’s the only thing I’ll keep – everything else, including the bag, will go up for swap. I think several of the colors I’ll apply wet as eyeliner on a more muted eyeshadow background.

    The bag is very nice, actually, it’s just that I have so many makeup bags that I doubt I’ll ever have a need for this specific one. But seriously, based on the quality of the materials and the workmanship it say the value is upwards of $20.

  2. I just knew there’d be problems with this upgraded box. They billed me 26.40, took way too long to get my bag reveal. After being told by IpsyCare that my payment was received & to sit tight and check back in a few days, I check back and now it says I’m not getting this bag. I was on the breaking point of cancelling before they rolled this out. Now I’m done for sure.

    • I switched back after I was charged and saw what I was getting. My daughter has plus too. With the lack of profile matching we are getting the same things. No need for duplicates. I was immediately charged for the regular bag on Oct 1. Now it says I’m not getting the regular glam bag and no info about the plus. I have an email waiting in line for Ipsy. I wonder if I’ll get anything this month.

  3. So I am paying $25 per month for Glam Bag Plus? So it is like Boxycharm? And we get a Glam Bag quarterly?

    I have to make a serious decision regarding which one I stay with.


    • Yes, it’s $25/month for 5 full-size items plus a makeup bag quarterly. This is from Ipsy’s FAQ and it’s how this subscription was introduced from th beginning:
      “Members with the Glam Bag Plus will receive 5 full-size beauty products every month based on their beauty profile and a large makeup bag once a quarter, at our introductory price of $25/month.”

      • “Introductory” Price….

  4. Why does this strike me as Ipsy making a Plus option to get rid of the stuff they can’t sell? This is stuff they constantly give in sample sizes in regular glam bags, and it’s far from what was advertised. A glitter palette, really? That’s great for anyone under 35. I suspected Ipsy was going to have a hard time with personalization, with only 8 products, I can’t imagine why? 😒 So glad I went with my gut and decided to wait several months to see how they do. The last thing I need is another full size Eyeko and a crappy Morphe highlighter.

  5. Well I’m still Not even on the waiting list for the Glam Plus. I’ve been a ipsy subscriber for 3 years non stop and still haven’t been chosen for the plus box even though ipsy keeps saying that they want all of their loyal ipsy subscribers to receive the plus box first.

    • If only half of the people who said they were going to cancel, do in fact cancel, a whole bunch of spots should be opening up soon.

    • I’m with you! Annual subscriber and not on a waitlist. I just emailed them asking why I haven’t even been asked to join acwaitlist.

  6. Sunday Riley and Sol de Janeiro should start a box together. They would make a killing! Personally, I hope that I never hear the words “bum bum cream” or “Sunday Riley” ever again. Ever.*

    *not snark, just a joke

  7. For something I anticipated so much, I’m extremely underwhelmed… I just got the same morphe highlighter in my $10 bag last month, the spray is not exciting, the balm to oil is just meh… the mascara and purlisse face mask are the only 2 things I am excited to try… switched up my preferences for hopes of November being better… I am so confused on how they curate to your reviews, yes, I said I liked this highlighter, that doesn’t mean I want another one 1 month later 🤦🏻‍♀️ Highlighter lasts forever .. especially full size. I feel like they need to adjust their quiz, and include some kind of frequency of use questions 🤷🏻‍♀️

  8. This looks like a Boxycharm copycat, and I just canceled Boxycharm. No NOMO here…

  9. I’m beyond disappointed. These have 2 products made in china, and calling it high end, no way! I want my money back and no bag. So underwhelming.

  10. I would have loved the Purlisse mask, If someobody wants to trade or sell theirs let me know.

  11. Has anyone else noticed the $5 they added to the shopper account for getting plus this month? They automatically apply it at checkout and I got the Glam Glow plumper lippie and paid about $3 for it after discounts.

    • Yes I noticed it yesterday.

    • Thanks for the heads up!

  12. Spoilers are up, looks like only 8 products are sampled this month.
    I do feel that this is a little underwhelming for the hype, especially compared to the September box that influensters got. I’ll give it another month and decide whether to keep it.

  13. Well I am getting everything that is spoiled here except tge lippie. They gave me tge Purlisse Blue Lotus Mud Mask + exfoliant instead and I am sooooo happy with that!! I can use that palette for the fall and I love the spray too! The only thing I can do without is the Eyeko but I will gift it in a stocking for xmas! Ty Ipsy!

  14. I got the LXMI balm, Purlisse Mask, Tarte mascara, smashbox palette, morphe highlighter & eyeko liner. Not Happy i got the morphe again since I got it in September bag. Very happy I’m getting 6 items!

  15. I got my spoilers–

    LXMI Pure Nilotica Melt Nourishing Balm-to-Oil

    Morphe Highlighter in Extra

    Ciate London Dewy Spritz

    Tarte Maneater Mascara

    Smashbox Eye Palette in Bold Glitter

    Eyeko Eyeliner

  16. im seriously getting that eyeliner morphe highlighter and some weird oil…I’m Writing Ipsy demanding a refund and telling them not to even bother shipping it to me….This is joke.

  17. My bag reveal is up. I’m actually liking it better than I thought. I’ll stick with it – its the first month. I think they are trying 🙂

  18. I really hate Ipsy right now. Not even 1 item from the PR box. This is all makeup!!!! Only that doggone oil to cream is for skincare. They did not think of the people who pay for these bags. I’m selling all of these products except the mascara. I’m gonna give them another month or 2 and that’s it!!!!
