  1. Pretty happy with mine;
    – KLORANE Dry Shampoo- happy
    – 111SKIN Vitamin C Brightening -yay!
    – F.A.R.A.H BRUSHES- meh
    – LANCÔME Le Monochromatique in Haute Couture- love the brand but wrong shade for me.
    – SMITH & CULT in Interlewd- not the shade I wished for but I like it.

    So very thankful for no lip product.

    • I recieved the palette in Mannequin Moves if you would like to trade!

  2. I am so so sooooo happy with my box this month! The exact products I wanted 🙂 111skin, the bright red lipstick in radical love, the purple shadow pallet, the brushes, and the haute couture!

    To everyone who got upset about the morpheus highlighter, I believe that is for new glam bag members. I’m willing to bet we will see a lot of repeats in the spoilers for the new members.

    Ipsy glam bag has completely lived up to the hype for me so far. This is my third month and I’m still amazed at what a steal it is.

    • I recieved rhe morphe extra highlight in my first box and now in my december box !! They could if given me a lipstick it is tottaly unfair so its not just new members and question were we suposse to fet a bag this month ?

      • I would email them and tell them you received that already! I bet they’ll send you something else.

  3. I can’t even be mad at what I’m getting in my bag this month. Has anyone totaled up the price for this months plus bag?! That serum ALONE is $108. I’ve totaled it up to $250.. I couldn’t find the actual gold face brush trio set from F.A.R.A.H. but the fact I only spent $25 + tax for this is definitely a GREAT STEAL!

    My bag includes
    Estée Lauder Pure Envy Lipstick in Never Enough
    Lancome Monochromatique in Haute Couture
    111Skin Vitamin C Brightening Serum
    Gold Brush Trio
    Smith&Cult Eyeshadow Quad in Interlewd

    I found my specific items when Ipsy asked if I wanted to do add ons.

    I passed on them since I already have what I need atm thanks to Sephora Rouge sales the past month and also being able to take $25 off $75 purchase ☺️

    What all did you get?

  4. I’m a little upset, normally I don’t complain but I’m receiving the exact same morph highlighter that I got in my October bag. I like the highlighter but I don’t need two. I’m going to cancel if I’m just going to keep getting the same things.

  5. Does anyone know if the color they show in spoilers is the color we get for sure? For example, if in the spoilers they show eyeshadow in purple, is it what I am getting or is there a chance to get another color? I am asking this, because if we get what is shown in spoilers, then 3 makeup items I will receive are from shades that I haven’t selected as preference ls in my beauty profile and in all product reviews I tell that.

    My bag is:
    -111Skin Booster – very happy about this one as I prefer more skincare and also this brand is really nice and expensive
    -Smith & Cult palette – I am happy to receive it, but it is shown in purple, so I still hope to get a neutral one
    -brush set – I’d rather get a dublicate of Morphe highlighter, but at this point don’t care much as the rest of the bag is great
    -Lancome eyeshadow – picture shows that pink/red shade, but I really hope to get any of the other two
    -Estee Lauder Pure Color Love lipstick – happy to get it, but again picture shows Radical Chic and that’s not the shade I wear (neutral shades selected on my profile and mentioned in all my reviews)

    • No, those are not necessarily the colors you will receive. Mine showed Interlewd, Haute Couture, and Radical Red, but when I recieved my box I did not get any of those shades.

  6. I got the highlighter two months ago in my first bag and I’m getting it again this month. Grrrr. Ipsy will be getting an email from me. Not cool.

  7. I love my bag!!! I’m getting:

    Vitamin C Brightening Booster

    Gold Face Brush Trio

    Book of Eyes Palette in Interlewd

    LANCÔME Le Monochromatique in Haute Couture

    ESTÉE LAUDER Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Never Enough

    • Mine was listed as the same colors as yours which makes me wonder- does it just show us the first color in the multiple options? In my experience, Ipsy never commits to a variation. That said, I’m thrilled with my bag.

      • This month if you go into the “add on” section. It says “Your Glam Bag Plus” with specific colors, not the usual “or”. Specific like Interlewd and Radical chic. I think they have finally committed, and I’m liking it!

        • Yes- it just sounds like we’re all getting Interlewd and haute couture which is odd.

          • Variations are definitely limited in plus. However, in my profile I specifically went in to change my eyeshadow preferences to brown or purple.

        • I agree!! And i think it is because of the add-ons we kinda have to know our shades so we don’t add repeats…Love that i know for sure, and love all my colors!!

        • I thought that last month and was excited thinking I had acoustic for the lipstick but if you clicked through acoustic was just the first name written and the rest were cut off. I did not get acoustic.

          • Go into your addons section. Not the main section. Should show you the right colors for your bag.

      • Mine showed the same, but those are not the shades I recieved.

    • Same thing it showed me I’m getting, Even the same shades, hopefully it showing the shades is correct and not a glitch, Last month it showed my shades early and it was correct.

      • I’m curious if anyone’s shows other colors.

        • Mine was revealed in the add ons. It tells you what you’re getting in your Glam Plus. I’m guessing they reveal the colors this month because of the add ons. Would suck to purchase an add on pallete if it’s the one you’re getting.

        • Lipcolor in radical chic

    • I’m getting the same..

    • I have The exact same bag! Some how I ended up with the best colors for the palette and blush! It makes up for my terrible regular glam bag!

    • I am getting the same bag.

  8. I was able to add the vitamin c serum for $12 to my bag and apparently it’s a full size product. Not 100% if it is but I think even if it’s a deluxe size it’s a good price since I saw online that a full size 20ml goes for $180. It looks like today is the last day to add an add on to my bag. First time I see an option to add products to my already selection of products

  9. I’m super excited for my December bag!
    Spoilers are up and I’m getting…

    Pure Color Love Lipstick in Radical Chic. Love this color (OMG)!

    Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk. Practical item that I will use.

    Vitamin C Brightening Booster. Most excited about this! I hope everyone gets one in their bag!

    Gold Face Brush Trio. Pretty brushes. I’m overstocked, but I’ll use them.

    Book of Eyes Palette in Interlewd. Was hoping for the purple pallete it was my favorite of the 4… YAY!

    I’m not adding anything to my bag this month. Nothing really exciting. My December Glam Bag is perfect as it is!

    • Mine is the same except instead of the dry shampoo I’m getting the Lancome in Haute Couture. Ipsy Plus has been amazing for me. I’m so glad that I didn’t get the dry shampoo or the highlighter again. Now I just hope I actually get the colors stated. Good luck everyone in getting what you want 💄💄!

      • I think the Morphe highlighter is for newbies. Glad you got exactly what you was hoping for:-) I use dry shampoo all the time, so I’m super happy to be getting it over the Lancôme. I opted out of nail polish and highlighter. It’s worth contacting Ipsy if you hate certain products. They will still opt you out of two products with Glam Plus.

    • This is my bag too. 😊

    • Mine is the same, and I am pretty happy with it. I may gift the lipstick and dry shampoo, so what a steal!

    • I have the same bag! Happy with what I get this month. Last month I didn’t get the palette and the bum bum 🙁

  10. I skipped this month and opened a second account for a regular bag because I loved the sequin bag. I loved everything in my November Plus, but almost everything this month doesn’t interest me either because of brands or colors or overload of that product.

    I don’t understand the Morphe highlighter already being repeated or them including powder highlighter every month of similar shades.

  11. Wait, so some are going to get a 180.00 oil and some are not? Oh boy i can only imagine how this is gonna go… lol

    • I was just thinking the same thing.

      • I normally don’t complain but that is such a difference in price! That doesn’t even come close to the palette situation 😂

    • Its an add on for those that don’t . I get the $10 bag and just bought it for $12!!! I was shocked it was there.

  12. Will probably be selling all of it from what i’m seeing.

  13. Oh man I should have canceled, last month was a total fail for me and I thought I’d give it another month, looks like I’ll regret that decision.

  14. Excited for every spoiler, but would first love to have my November box arrive. It was still in the warehouse as of yesterday. They offered December free for the hassle this month has caused. At this point I wonder if I’ll be receiving both months at the same time….just hope December’s isn’t the same issue because some items I’d love to use as gifts. I already have the highlighter but it would be a perfect gift for a cousin or a friend ,as would the brushes.

  15. This is very disappointing. A couple of non cruelty free brands, a dry shampoo (enough already) and an ugly ass useless black polish.
    Wish I skipped this month.

  16. Dang, I wish I would have skipped this month!

  17. Yes I am finally off the wait list and liking everything I see here. I would be happy with what they pick for me.

  18. 100% glad I skipped this month!! It’s the 3rd box and they already have a repeat!?!?

    • No kidding!! I’d be seriously irritated if I’d gotten another Morphe Highlighter but like you, I’d skipped this month. And please, no more frosty eyeshadow!

  19. I don’t ever use dry shampoo in my very coarse of ethnic origin hair. I will unload that if i get it. I received the survey too, so i’m hoping for the skincare. I also already received the Morphe highlighter. I’m okay with the black polish, and I opted out of lips even thought I loved last months lip gloss. Lip color is just too much of a crap shoot. Can’t wait until tomorrow for the big unveil!

  20. Oh sweet merciful lord, those brushes are BEAUTIFUL. As long as I get those, this month is a win.

  21. I keep trying to cancel the 2nd ipsy account I made to keep getting the regular bag. Last month they gave it to me free so of course I stayed. This time they gave me two free items if I stayed (Buxom lippie and a Farah brush) so again I stayed.

  22. I got the Morphe highlighter in the first? box I think so please don’t repeat.

    I want the 111Skin product, the brushes & the eyeshadow palette. I’m opted out of nail polish so that narrows my options down. This is my 3rd box.

    Overall I’d give Plus a low B- or high C+. Can’t decide if I want to cancel. I might try skipping a month. $25 is getting kind of expensive. Either the regular bag needs to go or Plus.

  23. This is looking pretty good….I am hoping to get the Brush Trio, the Blush in Haute Couture, the Lipstick in Never Enough, the Palette in Interlewd, and the Skin Vitamin C Serum!!! That would be an exciting bag for me!

  24. My ideal bag, based on spoilers:
    – Klorane dry shampoo
    – Smith & Cult palette in Interlewd
    – 111Skin serum
    – Lancome Monochromatique in Haute Couture
    – Estee Lauder Lip Love in Strapless

    I really hope that I don’t get the EL Lip Envy. I prefer the sheer Lip Love type of lipstick. ::crosses fingers::

    • Depending on what variations I receive, this could be the first Glam Bag Plus that I’m truly happy with.

      I personally feel like the products are starting to live up to the hype of the influencer bag (tho maybe that’s just because I was one of the lucky ones who received the Bum Bum in my Nov bag 😂).

  25. Not sure the Context nail polish will be in bags. The link in the Beauty News article goes to Ipsy Shopper, not the typical Ipsy product page that includes the reviews & tips on how to use the product.

  26. Hoping for the serum,eyeshadow,dry shampoo,brushes and nail polish although my profile says no polish. Hopefully I won’t get the highlighter as I got one in October and my profile says no highlighter. My face is shiny enough as it is.

  27. Honestly, I like all of it. I hope I don’t get that highlighter (again) and I don’t like that dry shampoo (the smell bothers me) but I really like everything else. I hope I get that serum!! 🤞

  28. Finally got off the waitlist, all I have to say is, the 111SKIN Vitamin C Brightening Booster better not be a variant. I don’t much care what else is in my box.

  29. I’ll just stick to regular Ipsy. No, thank you!

    • Oh yeah because I’d love to pass on almost $300 worth of products for $25…Said nobody ever.

  30. A few days ago I received a survey from Ipsy in my email. It was about November’s box and what I liked, what I didn’t and what I prefer overall in my box (makeup/skincare equally or more makeup or more skincare).

    As long as I get the skincare item, I’m good with almost any combination for the other stuff.

    The only products I really don’t want to get are nail polish (because I always get gel manicure at the salon) and brushes.

    • I don’t like that mine hasn’t shipped yet! Maybe that’s why they didn’t send me the survey. I also would not like to receive the same highlighter every 2 months. It’s lovely, but I’m set for a while

  31. It looks like there are more Estee Lauder lipstick options available: Pure Color Love Lipstick in Radical Chic, Flash Chill, or Strapless. I wish I had skipped this month. I went on last night to do it but it was too late. I bought some makeup that I wanted during Black Friday/Cyber Mon sales & i’m already on product overload. Not too many friends or family members wear makeup so most things aren’t easily gifted. I may skip next month.

    • Yeah, the 2 different lines of Estee Lauder lipsticks seems to have confused people looking for spoilers this month. I only saw one of them listed in the spoiler post on Reddit, too.

  32. Since I don’t want black nails, is there another way to use the polish? Also, I don’t paint lines or little doo dads on my nails.

    • You can use it as a base for a shimmer top coat, holographic, or an ombre design. Black and white are good base colors to have.

  33. I only want the booster. Same highlighter? Strange. I don’t need more brushes – just got a trio last month. I never use dry shampoo. Black nail polish is not my cup of tea – and it’s Christmas and New Year, not Halloween.

    If I don’t get stuff I dislike – I’ll keep my subscription.

    • I think the highlighter option is there for the people that’s first plus bag is December or people that didn’t receive it in their bags recently. I’m not concerned about the highlighter since it was in my October bag already.

  34. Oh, gahh! Morphe needs to hold on to their highlighter for a few months. Got this in October. Dang!

    • Morphe highlighter is new eyeko eyeliner

      • Right!?! 😂

        • 🤣 yep

  35. I chose to skip when I saw the eyeshadow, but the serum looks nice. I dont see any way to change your mind about pausing though.

    • You can email ipsycare. If they have any available they can “unskip” you.

  36. 111 skin is sooo expensive wow I want that. I’m excited for everything. I won’t get the highlighter, I got it already but wow I’m so impressed!

  37. I’d love the Bightening Booster if anyone gets it and would like to swap or sell their bag at cost plus shipping.

    • that serum is $180 full size if it is full size… I am wondering though if it will be a smaller size ?

      • It is full sized! And if you have a regular ipsy, you may be able to add it on for $12!!!

        • I just added the 1111 onto my regular Ipsy bag!

          • Yeah i actually disagree with ipsy letting regular bags add the plus items…How exclusive is it really if everyone can purchase it for less than i paid for my bag.

  38. I’m not wowed, but not disappointed. In my opinion still better than Boxy. Glad I opted out of Highlighters.

    • That doesn’t matter at all. I’ve always been opted out of highlighters with Ipsy, and already received two of them in Ipsy Plus.

      They don’t customize.

  39. I haven’t even gotten my November glam bag plus yet! I did get an email apologizing, and that they wouldn’t charge me for December. However I still want November’s box! I hope I get it. They haven’t even sent it yet.

    • I had mine stolen out of my mailbox and they said they had no replacements so hopefully yours comes! I was really looking forward to mine. I did notice that this month’s box was really late. It just came 2 days ago. Kept getting a bunch of “delays” during shipping.

    • What were you wanting out of Novembers? I have somethings i dont want.

      • and I’d be willing to sell

  40. is this the month we get a new bag also?

    • I *think* January will be the new bag month.

      • I got a bag this month. It’s GORGEOUS.

  41. Is it too late to sign up? I think since it is the first of the month, it is too late… I really want that brightening booster! And the Lancome packaging is gorgeous

    • I wish I could sell you mine!

      • If you get the brightening booster and one of the Lancome shadows (I don’t care which color), I’d be game for buying your box off of you! 🙂

    • There is a waitlist right now and invites are by email only .

  42. Wow a lot of negativity here! Can’t please everyone I guess.

    I think this is great, especially with Christmas coming up. Whatever I don’t want I’ll pass along as a gift.

  43. another morphe highlighter nooooooooooo NOT fair i want a REFUND

    • They won’t give it to you if you already received that shade.

  44. Glad I’m skipping this month! I don’t wear red lipstick, I have a ton of brushes, I’ve heard bad things about the eyeshadow palettes…I’m starting to think that Boxycharm is enough for me! I don’t need both subs.

    • *since I subscribe to Boxycharm also, I’m on brush overload! One sub is enough!!

  45. Oh I do love how the full spoilers come out after the payment deadline ..LOL. Thankfully I decided to skip December last night. The last two boxes were pretty good but nothing here excites me. Here is to a new year and a new box!!

  46. There is also a black nail polish.

    • Thank you! Added!

  47. I really want the dry shampoo the brushes and one of the Smith and cults eyeshadow. I will be pissed if i get the highlighter again!

    • I don’t think they’ll send the highlighter to anyone who received it in a previous month.

      • That would be best not to double send ..Even though I do like the Morphe Highlighter I already did get 2 from Ipsy in $10 bag and the $25 plus so I do not need nor want another.

  48. They cut the lipstick shade strapless, the only wearable one for me! Ipsy plus is skating on thin ice with me this month. If I get the blue palette, a bright lip, and a stupid highlighter, I am out!

  49. Wow, received the Morphe highlighter in that exact shade in the October box. They are already repeating items 2 bags later? Wish I would have skipped this month.

    • Exactly! It’s way too new to be sending repeats all ready.

    • I hope the send the highlighter for new subscriber cause if I get it again I will cancel my subscription, specially cause I tell in my profile that I don’t want any highlights and I wrote them to specify that I don’t want to receive any future highlighters.
      This box look very random.

  50. Seriously that highlighter again? It was an option in October. That’s sus. Glad I cancelled.
