I like the bag. Kinda reminds of something late ‘80’s, early 90’s. Nice clean look for the New Year!

Sharyn

Just received my ipsy today and I’m especially loving the bag. Very nice quality! (When I was in middle school we had these purses with wooden handles and you could change out the pattern. This reminds me of one of the patterns I had. Good memories)! 👜

Kay

I wish there were more spoilers for January 🙁

Becca S

Me too! I am impatient

Laura

Bag’s ugly (and not very wintery), spoilers look unappealing, and I’m STILL waiting up even just an UPDATE for my December back (which was delayed on the 12).

So… I think I’m skipping this month.

Kem

More items in the “improve glam bag” survey:
Belle En Argent – Lipgloss (vampy red color)
Marc Anthony – Strengthening Grow Long Anti-Breakage Mask
Sur.Medic + – Sheet Masks
Farah Brush – Powder Brush 50F
Touch in Sol – No Poreblem Priming Water
Doucce – Fierce and Fine Graphic Pen
MAC – Strobe Cream
Eyeko – Lash Alert Mascara
Hanalei – Lip Treatment (Peach Pink)
TheBalm Cosmetics – Alternative Rock Face palette vol 1 – Take It For Granite

Angela

i dont care for this bag i absolutely loved decembers ispy bag and the glam plus bag was similar as well

Cheryl Brock-C

I’m done with Ipsy. Not coming till December 27th? That’s ridiculous, even for December.

Laura

At least you know when yours is coming in. The only tracking update I had after “it’s shipped” was on the 12th saying that it’s been delayed. After a week I emailed support and they just explained how shipping worked, as if I didn’t know.

it’s been two weeks now with no update.

not really stoked about this.

karen

mines going to be here on jan 2nd… lol

Brittany

Yikes :/

Brittany

I received mine on the 21st. I’ve always received mine on the 13th. I ordered 3 extras with my bag and didn’t even get them. I have to wait 5-7 buiness days for my extras to ship. I love Ipsy to much to be done. They were backed up. The extras are new and so is ipsy glam bag plus. They ate still getting the hang of things. I expected a pretty bad delay for those reasons as well as it being the holidays. They always make things right.

SquirrelyGirl

I’m with you. I don’t really mind when I get my bag. As long as I get it…

Tiffany Jones

didnt they even guarantee that it would be there before christmas? it said that for me. you should talk to ipsy care.

Meghan

Oh I love Tarte, Hopefully I get something from them. I have to say though I’m not crazy about the bag, looks a little..dated..like something from 1997 lol.

Liina

I love the bag! It looks very nautical and summery like a July bag! I love the dome shape too.

Cris Blanton

I’m with you! I think this bag is so cute!!!!😍

Tanya

I’ve never gotten an ipsy bag before…

Are these all variant items? I love most of the items and may consider subbing for January only! I subbed to Allure for December only too…

karen

You are going to like it even tho the products are delux i love all the products i get in my bag those are some of the items you can get in your bag

Lisa

I get deluxe and full size.

Jill M

That brush is amazing!!! I got one from my Boxyluxe and I ended up having to buy almost all of the ones they make lol…The brush itself is totally worth it!

Michelle Diamond

Is this the glam bag plus products for January? And yes love that brush beautiful and so soft does a great job blending foundation I also got in Boxyluxe.

Emma

No. It’s the regular glam bag.

Sarahanne

I actually wouldn’t mind the eyeliner. I go through it like crazy. It it nice for them to actually have a brush that is not an eye shadow brush. The only thing I’m not crazy about is that bag. I think it would have been better in the summer.

kirsty Russell

Iv’e gotten that liner before in my Glam bag and its kinda meh. drags when applying and it like dries up by the time i get to my second eye so that its not evenly black. its ok if you don’t do a sharp wing

Mahleah

Yours must’ve been a bad one. My eyeko liner has been my favorite felt tip liner I’ve received from ipsy. Super black, super sharp! I’d love to get it again.

Pamela

If you sign up now, you’d get Decembers, right?

jen

I just signed up and it said I would get Januarys

Marion

Most likely. They’d sign you up, move you off the wait list, then say you’re getting January’s bag for sure, but people was who sign up this early in the month in order to get the next month’s bag usually end up getting the current month’s bag, too, even though Ipsy does not guarantee that.

Doreen

I signed up this morning and won’t get my first bag until January. I was hoping to have one for Christmas. 😥

Marion

michellej1995 shared some January Glam Bag Plus spoilers on Reddit.

They’re not great, in my opinion.

Jessica

really?? I can’t find them can you post a link?

Amber

They’re definitely not for me. A lot of other users also agreed that they’re kinda meh

Lisa

New Ipsy point rewards are up.

JennR

I’m getting:

-Benefit Porefessional Primer

-Tinct Nail polish

-Hey Honey Relax Propolis & Honey Soothing Cream

-Cake Beauty Delectable Hand Cream in Iced Gingerbread scent

-FARAH Tapered Blending Eye Brush

And, the Luxie brush everyone is getting

Really excited about the two lotions, especially the gingerbread scented hand cream! A little disappointed to be getting two brushes in one bag, but they’ll get used…as well as the Porefessional primer. Hoping for the purple nail polish color and not the white. All in all, still pretty happy with my December bag.

mlynn

i am getting the Farah brush, too, i think thats the one everyone is getting one of. i dont have 2 brushes in my bag for december, just the pretty gold one.

Amber

I was just wondering….on the website it shows that I’m getting 6 items but in the email it says 5. Has this happened to anyone before? Is this pretty standard? Just curious because I don’t want to get excited about stuff if I may not actually get it lol

Yvonne

I am getting the same thing

Brittany

The farah brush is what everyone is getting.

Rebecca

I’m not getting a Luxie brush, just the FARAH blending brush.

Amber

Omg we are bag twins!!!! Exactly the same 6 items!!!!

JennR

Oops. Wrong thread…obviously meant this for the December post!

Jennifer

The bag is pretty cute!! And a tarte foundation?! I’ll be redoing my profile to angle for that. 🙂

Kem

Got these items when I did the improve Ipsy bag thing:
BELLE EN ARGENT
Lip Gloss

LXMI
Nilotica Goddess Glow

HEMPZ
Ultra Moisturizing Herbal Lip Balm

CIATÉ LONDON
Wonderwand Mascara

BILLION DOLLAR BROWS
Fan Brush

ELLA EDEN
Pressed Eyeshadow

PURE BRAZILIAN
Leave-In Conditioner

AHAVA
Dead Sea Water Mineral Hand Cream

Jen

I mean 8things

Courtney

No that’s what she saw in the Improve Glam Bag quiz some people have the option to take.

Laura

I think she did the improve your bag survey and it showed those products to rate – not that she received those items in her bag.

Jen

You got 7things?

Marion

I like the Ella Eden shadow! I got it in a peachy pink shade a while back & loved it. I wouldn’t use the purple shade, though, so I said no to it this time around.

Gidget

Cute bag! Kinda gives me a Spring/Summer vibe. Don’t mind that in the middle of Winter. Hopefully it’s a nice fabric not printed plastic.

Jen

Love the bag!!

Marion

Not a fan of the bag. (This isn’t a huge concern for me, though. I’ll just give it away.)

Always down to receive samples from TheBalm. They last forever! I hope they’ll be sending a shade from the Alternative Vol 1 palette, too, since the cooler tones are better for me.

Adriana Bautista

This bag gives be Mary Poppins vibes, ah what a beautiful bag. That brush must be mine Luxie brushes are the best!

Michelle Diamond

Love this bag very simple and cute. Great products to. Very happy

Rachel

Wow this has to be the ugliest bag I’ve seen in awhile, in my opinion. Shocking since Dec is so pretty. I’m not even a fan of these items so I’m hoping they do another reveal or two before I pause.

Deanne

Yeah super ugly to me too lol, oh well I like lots that others don’t.

Amy

The bag is unattractive and is more summery in appearance.

Enid

I agree it’s more ‘summery’ than ‘wintery’.

Dea

Tastes vary, I guess. I think that this is a pretty bag, and the December bag is not. Fortunately, MSA gives us spoilers in plenty of time to make an informed decision on getting ipsy on a given month or not. MSA is a real public service!

Anna

I’m with you on thinking this bag is adorable. I guess I like things more subdued than flashy.

Marissa

I am loving these spoilers! I would love to get that Luxie brush, Clinique Cleansing Balm, and the Amazonian Clay foundation if they’re including one in my shade (ipsy has done a pretty great job of color matching me somehow)

Bran

Eyeko should be banned from all bags. They’re right up there with Manna Kadar for me on being over done. Nope.

A

Completely agree

Marion

Haha, I actually like some of the Manna Kadar products, though.

Nothing by Eyeko has ever worked for me!

Val

I agree!

Rissa

Yes! I have three travel sized Eyeko eyeliners and three full sized ones! Even if I liked the product, the number of times its given to me would make me hate it.

MissP

Seriously!!

Brittany

O.o I love that bag! Fingers crossed for the brush.
