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

    • 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)! 👜

  2. I wish there were more spoilers for January 🙁

    • Me too! I am impatient

  3. 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.

  4. 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

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

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

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

    • 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.

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

    • mines going to be here on jan 2nd… lol

      • Yikes :/

    • 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.

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

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

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

  9. 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…

    • 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

      • I get deluxe and full size.

  10. 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!

    • 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.

      • No. It’s the regular glam bag.

      • Thank you

  11. 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.

    • 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

      • 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.

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

    • 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.

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

      • You can email them and they will charge you but you have to email them. I had to do the same thing.

      • Thanks!!

      • I wouldn’t lose hope yet. I signed my sister up in November as Christmas present. I just figured her first bag would be December but she ended up getting November’s bag at the very last minute. I think it arrived around the 28th.

      • Hi Rachel!
        I emailed them the other day and I quickly received a response saying they’re putting together my box for December!!
        Now I’m just waiting for it to be shipped.

      • Insist. Don’t stop to email them and you’ll get your Dec one!

      • Grrr! I’m getting the mid month shipping timing now and will be notified by email and will also see it on my page. Yeah, it’s staying there. They have my money now so….take their time like every other place…..
        I won’t see it by Christmas 😕

    • I just signed up and it said I would get Januarys

  13. michellej1995 shared some January Glam Bag Plus spoilers on Reddit.

    They’re not great, in my opinion.

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

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

  14. New Ipsy point rewards are up.

  15. 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.

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

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

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

    • The farah brush is what everyone is getting.

    • I am getting the same thing

    • 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.

      • 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

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

  17. Got these items when I did the improve Ipsy bag thing:
    Lip Gloss

    Nilotica Goddess Glow

    Ultra Moisturizing Herbal Lip Balm

    Wonderwand Mascara

    Fan Brush

    Pressed Eyeshadow

    Leave-In Conditioner

    Dead Sea Water Mineral Hand Cream

    • 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.

    • You got 7things?

    • I mean 8things

      • 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.

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

  18. 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.

  19. Love the bag!!

  20. 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.

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

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

  22. 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.

    • 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!

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

    • The bag is unattractive and is more summery in appearance.

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

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

  23. 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)

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

    • Seriously!!

    • 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.

    • I agree!

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

      Nothing by Eyeko has ever worked for me!

    • Completely agree

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

  26. I was going to quit, but what cute bag. Maybe it will have all the things i wanted in December but didn’t get.

  27. This is my favorite looking bag since I joined in September.

    I really hope I get the foundation. 🤞🤞🤞

  28. That bag is cute! I’m ok with it’s non-winter look.

  29. Well, I like the bag…

  30. Oooo, I would love the Clinique Cleansing Balm!

  31. Pretty bag! A reminder of summer right when we need it.

    OK, I’ll repeat what you’re all thinking and saying… Please, ipsy selection gods, not the Eyeko liner… I have run out of female relatives to foist it onto.

  32. The bag is adorable! Reminds me of the old bed pillow coverings.

    I know Eyeko runs about $20 but how many times are we going to get an Eyeko eyeliner, mascara etc?

    I’d love to get the Clinique, Tarte foundation & the Luxie brush (I have lots of their brushes but they’re really well made). I like the Balm too but don’t need any blush.

    Hopefully we’ll get more spoilers before the end of the month but so far most of these look promising

  33. Cute bag, but I get more of a summer vibe from it, no?
    Look guys, more eyeko liner!

    • I have 2 of that same eyeliner already…..

  34. the bag is ugly to me but I want that luxie brush the tarte foundation and clinique balm!

  35. I would die if the GBP had the full size of the Amazonian clay foundation or the Clinique cleansing balm.

    • With how bad they are at customization, I’d be weary of a full size foundation.

    • That foundations not full size. I’ve owned it and it’s bigger than that with a wooden lid

      • She was hoping for it in the glam bag plus (GBP), which does have full size products.

      • Ahh I didn’t even notice GBP, that that’s what that stood for lol

    • My exact thoughts

    • So far it’s a slightly different Eyeko liner than the one in October, a Hey Honey serum, a Vasanti lip liner, and a Hanalei lip scrub – someone who complained about December’s bag posted the list they were given to pick from on Reddit.
