  1. Man I really hope the Coola sunscreen will be available as an add on again next month. I know they do that with products sometimes! I was to late to get it this time! 😥 That was such a good price for it and I’ve been looking to get a good sunscreen for my face.

  2. I was super happy to snag the Coola Sport Face Sunscreen. Awesome deal for $12 as it’s normally $30+. I also picked up the Answer From eye cream & the I Dew Care peel off mask. Excited to try both!

  3. Update…

    Below is “The Solution” or the link absolutely never ever ever in all the time I’ve been a member of Ipsy Glam glam bag it is never once ever shown up on the app or on the website I don’t know what to do I feel discriminated upon somehow I don’t know what to do I’m so tired of not having this available it should be available to everybody they shouldn’t discriminate I feel really wrong and I know this sounds kind of wine you could cheapers creepers I want to feel like I belong you know

    You can find the list of all the products for the month on the Glam Bag page. Below your 5 items for the month, you’ll see a “See All Samples” link

    • I checked out the FAQ site and there is a section that says:
      “Who is eligible for Add-Ons?
      This is a special feature we’re slowly rolling out to a small group of members, and it may be available to all our members at a later time.”

      This may be your case and I would contact them to see if you would be able to get addons soon.

      But, I don’t always get the email invite either so I set a monthly calendar reminder for the 2nd at 6am PT and login to Ipsy dot com /glambag/addons or from the app on my phone.

      • Thanks for your kindness and your response I do appreciate it. I don’t like being dramatic but I feel frustrated. It’s bad enough that I don’t ever get to see all the products because for some reason that doesn’t work you know and I’ve been a subscriber for such a long time and then they told me when I wrote in about this that they would be fixed and it certainly has not been so it’s a little bit Goofy

  4. Look every month I tried to do this add-on thing it never shows an option or anyting a button or otherwise it says add this to my back never I don’t know what to do I feel like I’m being discriminated on I have no idea what to do I’ve downloaded the app I’d go to the regular website and still no matter what I do there is no button or anything to click to say how or what I can add to my bag what the heck is going on. I’m so frustrated and every single month for I don’t know eight months now with their was the Ipsy glam bag or regular Ipsy I’ve never been able to do this it’s this is Despicable. Please tell me what to do what am I doing wrong please somebody please help me thank you in advance

    • I do not sub to ipsy anymore but I found they always responded when I sent them an email, that’s the route I would go if I had same issue and still was a subscriber. If you try that I hope they respond and help you.

  5. I’ve never had the option to add on. If i wasnt an MSA Super Fan I wouldn’t know about it. So i was able to add an extra pallet. I could tell from the offerings it knew what pallet i was already getting. So excited! Glad Im a part of this!

  6. This is my first time ordering add ons. I added the space case eyeshadow in messy lochnessy and the trissola intense hydrating mask. In my confirmation email for the eyeshadow it says I will get the green one or the purple one. Will they send me one or the other or the one I ordered?

  7. I think this is the first GBP that I haven’t loved. I am probably the palest person in the world and they gave me the benefit sun beam. Which is wayyyyyyyy to dark for my fair cool toned skin! Idk. Just not my favorite plus bag at all. I’m sure next month will be better though. I think I’m most upset that I missed out on the Coola sunscreen as an add on! 😢

    • I’m with you. Not great this month, but hoping next month is better.

  8. I accidently added 2 mauves by mistake. If anyone wants the mauve and does not want the coral, I’ll gladly trade! spillit04 at gmail dot com.

  9. Does anyone know if I were to reactivate now if I could still get access to add ons?

  10. Added on the Ofra highlighter – full size not bad for $3. Also added the Huda palette in mauve, though I need another shadow palette like I need a hole in my head 😆

  11. I am pretty aggravated – I added on three Huda palettes in Smokey, Coral, and Mauve, but in the confirmation e-mail it said I was getting Coral, Mauve, and another one of the three – not the Smokey that I originally ordered! Then after contacting Ipsy they replied : don’t worry you are getting the Mauve palette — um I ordered one of each not two Mauve how stupid! Bait and switch much? I’m pissed as it said SMOKEY when I ordered it now all of a sudden it’s whatever the hell they feel like sending me….terrible and I have no way to cancel it.

    • SAME!!! Ahhhh! What email did you reach them at to ask? I cant find how to contact them 😕

      • I just replied to the e-mail they sent me. No luck so far and I am not happy!!!

      • I heard back and they confirmed I am getting the Smokey and mauve palettes. Must be some kind of glitch on the confirmation page.

    • Same thing happened to me. If they do not confirm I’m getting a Smokey palette or cancel it, I will contact my credit card.

    • I finally got a response from Ipsy : “I’m so sorry for the confusion!

      We appreciate you bringing this to our attention so we can try to prevent it from happening in the future. I’ve alerted our team about the oversight.

      Our records show that you’re set to receive your purchased Add-Ons items (HUDA BEAUTY Obsessions Palette in Coral, Mauve, and Smokey) along with your March Glam Bag. You’ll get an email with tracking info once your package leaves our warehouse, so keep an eye on your inbox. ”

      I’m assuming that you guys should also be good to go with the Smokey palettes you ordered.

  12. I added on:
    – Huda Mauve eyeshadow palette (got Coral in my GBP)
    – IBY shadow in Get Soaked (kind of regretting this already — seems a little redundant with the mauve palette also, lol)
    – Purlisse Coconut Cranberry body butter (have been eyeballing this for the past couple of months & wishing it would be in add-ons!)

    I’m getting the Estate highlighter in my bag, or else I definitely would have gotten that as an add-on. I have the blue & purple ones (also from Ipsy) & I looooooove them. They are so pearly & frosty-looking, no glitter chunks at all.

    • I skipped this month, but would have grabbed the Estate highlighter if I hadn’t! That lavender one I got in a past Ipsy bag is my favorite highlighter.

  13. I added Disco Kitten mask, Superfood Cleanser, and the rose gold blush brush. I did away with my Birch Box sub since I prefer to spend my money on the Ipsy add-ones to get exactly what I want.

  14. I got the HUDA palette in my bag, but it didn’t say which one. My add on options were the Huda in Smokey if mauve, does that mean I’ll be getting it in coral? I really want the coral and was planning on getting it in the add ons if I didn’t.

    • The only add ons available to you will be the one you aren’t getting in your bag. So yes, you should get coral!

      • Thank you so much, I appreciate the reply. Coral is exactly what I was hoping for so I’m extra excited 🙂

  15. I just resubbed to reg Ipsy after the GBP fiasco. The addons are game changers, i can just choose I want that’s in GBP with no variant worries. Whats the pt. of a full size product if I dont like & wont use.
    My March curation subtotal $25, but loving my bag so much more then the GBP curation 🙂

    -Ofra. Highlighter (been wanting to try!)
    -Ciate. Lip gloss (picked in Q)
    -Miss Glam eye brush (love brushes)
    -IBY eyeshadow (ok-usable)
    -Sky Island lip fix (picked in Q)
    -Huda Muave (addon $12-steal!!! variant I would’ve wanted)
    -Youth to Ppl cleanser (addon $3, wanting to try!)

  16. Between my regular bag & IGBP I added on:

    First Aid Beauty Cleanser
    I Dew Care Peel Off Mask -this looks like a fun mask to try
    Youth To The People Cleanser – I added this on both of my bags
    Trissola Intense Hydrating Mask – I’ve never heard of this brand, so I’m excited to try this
    Answer From Eye Cream – another brand I’ve never heard of, so I can’t wait to try it!

  17. I decided to purchase 3 add-ons! This is a first for me. I was hoping for the hand cream in my ipsy bag, but i didn’t get it.

    I got the coola sport face spf 50 white tea organic sunscreen lotion – I own this, but I am low & now I have a back up.

    AHAVA – purifying mud mask
    Cake Beauty – Milk Made Velveteen Hand Cream

  18. I added 3 hudas. Victim of huge deal

    • I added 2 Hudas for the same reason. The third didn’t make it in only because I want to try the Bum Bum cream.

  19. I have 2 bags. I added the smokey huda palette, FAB face cleanser, Ofra highlighter, coola spf, Purlisse moisturizer & the slmissglam shader brush. So excited.

  20. Man I hate these ads-ons. I’m perfectly happy with my bag and then I see all these good deals on stuff I don’t need and suddenly I’m spending twice the cost of my actual Ipsy bag. And do I even want a Huda palette? I don’t even know!

    • I was thinking the same thing when I was submitting my order for my add-ons on both bags! I’m still excited for these add-ons, and will still get any that appeal to me in future bags, but the only downside for me is that I’ve set a sort of “budget” for myself for sub boxes, and the add-ons will be eating into it, so I think I will have to cancel some subs sooner than I was planning to. It’s all good though since this is all in fun. I’ll just re-sub later to those that get cut when I’ve replenished the pot and am ready to re-sub again for a few months at a time.

      • Luna, did you complete the order this time? 😉 (that’s a wink in case it doesn’t show up right, that seems to happen on here sometimes lol)

  21. I picked up one of the HUDA palettes I’m not getting, and the famed bum bum cream. There’s definitely something to be said about being presented things you don’t need at a deep discount.

  22. I got the bum bum for all 3 of my bags. First month I didn’t max out my add ons. My wallet will thank me later.

  23. I added the Ofra highlighter to my GBP! Yay!

  24. I picked the Benefit high beam in Dandelion.
    I actually opted out of highlighters but love the liquid ones!

    • Just want to clarify because you are the second person I’ve seen call it “high beam”. Really it’s the “Shy beam” that doesn’t have any sparkle, so it’s not a typical highlighter. I’m getting it in my GBP and I’m excited about it. The sparkly Ofra highlighter I’m getting in my regular bag however I’m pretty bummed about.

      • Sorry, yes you are correct!
        It works wonders for the darkness under my eyes!
        I’ve tried a sample before and loved it!
        Goes to show, I shouldn’t post before my coffee!

      • Oooh sounds neat, I’ve been wanting something like a super light concealer to use as a non sparkly highlight.
