  1. Ipsy family please help. I recieved my glam bag yesterday and the bag was completely opened and marked with an unsealed sticker on the pink packaging. None of my items had tamper seals on them. I emailed Ipsy customer service and they simply responded with thats normal because Ipsy opened my bag to add items but none of my add on items were in the bag either. Ipsy customer service said not to worry that my items are safe. Am so upset because my bag was really great this month but I just don’t think I can risk using items that may have been tampered with. Am I way off base here? Has anyone else had this happen? Thanks so much!!

    • Mine never have seals on them and I use them all the time.

      • Your bag doesn’t have a seal? Or your products? I do get products without seals so I have no issue with that. My issue was that my bag arrive completely open to the world. So I have no way of telling if someone tampered with the items inside.

    • Was it that it was never sealed (they didn’t remove the white strip) , Or that someone unsealed it? And did Ipsy say your add-ons were supposedly put in? If according to them your add-ons were indeed put in the bag and it was originally sealed but someone opened it…my guess would be it was just to steal your add-ons. Not tamper with your products.

      • The bag was sealed and then reopened. Ipsy said they opened it to put my add ons in the bag and then resealed it. But sometime between Ipsy shipping it and me receiving it, it was reopened. And my addons were not in there. I thought maybe they fell out but maybe someone did open it to steal them and then couldn’t reseal the bag since the sticky stuff was not sticky anymore. I wonder how many people know what an Ipsy package is to know they could seal the addons inside?? Crazy people. Ipsy customer service didn’t respond about my addons yet. Maybe they are backed up.

      • This is my first month with Ipsy and I’m also regretting it, my add on item was not included in the bag either. I had to go through emails back and fourth until they stated would be sending the add on item who knows when. I wonder If someone from Ipsy is stealing the add on sir maybe the postal workers since the bag color is very distinct. I hope this is an isolated incident for me I will try them out a couple more months.

      • After the pink glam bags are reopened to put add ons in, They should be taping them shut. I lost an add on because they didn’t retape it shut and the flap didn’t have any sticky on it.
        Someone in their warehouses arent doing their jobs properly and i dont know how to get them to understand that that’s causing trouble

        Its a bit unclear in what the problem is for you.. The individual items aren’t always sealed. That’s just a fact of every glam bag.

      • My primary issue was that my bag arrived unsealed/ open. Ipsy did say that they just started taping the bags now after they put the addons in but mine wasn’t taped and I guess my addons fell out? It was a secondary issue that the items didn’t have tamper seals. I get products all the time that don’t have tamper seals and that’s fine cause the pink package they came in was sealed so I trust they are safe from Ipsy. Seems like people think it’s no big deal to have an open bag with none sealed items, which does make me feel better 🙂 my biggest issue now is my addons were missing and it’s been 3 days with no reply from Ipsy on if they will replace them or refund me.

      • I had the same problem, my December add ons were missing. I finally got my items (after about 8 emails back and forth) and one “bonus” product in late February. The issue was finally resolved, but it left a bad taste in my mouth. Keep at them.

  2. I just went to update my profile for Ipsy plus and they are asking all new questions there…
    Like how often you’d like to receive a product.
    What colors you’d like to receive and how often.
    It’s all more specific than before!
    This is very exciting! Yay!!!
    Update those profiles!

    • This is a great enhancement. I would be so happy to receive brown eyeliners and mascara instead of black! Lot of women have strong preferences in lip colors. Good job IPSY!!

    • I just went back into the ‘past glam bags’ link and discovered you can now leave reviews for all the products you added on to your bag in the past! I just got an extra 100+ points on my account!

      (Sorry of this was already mentioned!)

      • Thanks for posting this. Id been hoping we would soon get the option to review and earn points for add-ons.

      • I just noticed this today too!!! How cool. The only thing I noticed though was that I added the Youth To The People cleanser to both my regular and Ipsy Plus bags, but I was only able to review it one time. 🙁 When I tried to review it the 2nd time I kept getting an error message saying there was a problem with my review and to try later. Hmmmm, maybe I’ll try again tomorrow (if I remember).

  3. Liz, sorry for off-topic, but I don’t see Allure February review and it is already mid-March… is it coming up?

    • That’s because she probably didn’t get it – I just got refunded for mine because it never showed up and tracking has been stalled since 2/26. So disappointed ☹️ I mean it’s not like I need anything but it’s the only box I get now so I’m even more excited when I get it.

      • Jso – I am sorry to hear that you didn’t receive your box 🙁

      • I called several times before I finally requested a refund, which they finally gave me. Then 2 boxes showed up within days, why couldn’t they just look at tracking? They told me there was no tracking. February was only my second month with allure so I was really confused.

    • Sorry! I’m late on a few reviews! That should be up very soon!

      • Liz – thanks!

  4. Liz,

    I’m new to Ipsy. Caved because I need to get the Glam Bag plus at some point. I literally signed up a few days ago and it said I would get the April Bag. I’ve already been billed. does that mean this is shipping out soon?

    • It will ship out with all of the other April bags, so sometime in the first or second week of April.

    • I’m not sure – If your first box will be the April box, that won’t ship until April. I would recommend contacting [email protected] so they can look at your account and get you a specific answer. Hope that helps a bit!

  5. This bag is so gosh darn cute! 😊

    • Oh I know! Since I kept seeing this bag quite a bit since it was spoiled, I had it in my mind that this was the bag I’d get as this month’s bag. So needless to say, yesterday I was a bit disappointed and confused (but only for a sec) when I got the copper March bag. I think the March bag was really cute too, so I recovered quickly. haha!
