  1. I can’t access the quiz…does anyone know where it can be located? I linked from MSA and it came up but every time I tried to make a selection it redirects me to a “join Ipsy” page. Is this solely for the $10 customers? I’ve been an Ipsy member for YEARS, but I dropped the $10 bag and went with the upgrade. The quiz looked awesome, but I can’t take it. 😭

  2. I have had Allure box for years now. I love it because you always get 1 or 2 full size. I just signed for lipmonthly which is 4 full sized lip products for $12ish+tax, great deal! Plus, i just signed for Ipsy a few months ago because the Glam Plus bag looks great! I don’t want to cut any of these subs, but lip monthly may have to get the chopping block when the Glam Bag kicks in…

  3. I’ve had this for a while now. No matter how many times I do it, it keeps popping up on the page asking me to take it. I can’t get rid of it!

    • Maybe try emptying your browser’s cache and cookies, Melissa.

    • Same!

  4. Agree that it would be great to have a never option and in 3 categories the colors I prefer were not even an option. That said, I am thrilled they are trying to improve the personalization of our Glam Bag Plus and wish more subs would follow suit. I loved it when we were temporarily able to pick one of our items in the older version of Ipsy and would love the option to return to that for Glam Bag Plus. I do like the add-on option but don’t we have to pick it before we know what will be on our bag? I dealt with someone there in customer service this week who was beyond awesome and it was 1000x better than some of my prior Ipsy CS experiences. So happy to see that Ipsy is making such positive improvements!

    • I thought the same thing this past month with the add-ons. I couldn’t see what I was getting but I figured I’d just gamble. Once I clicked on the link all the options appeared but above them at the top of that page it showed the items I was getting in my bag. I had to scroll horizontally to see them all if I remember correctly. It was odd but I was relieved not to have to chance it. This hadn’t happened in previous months. I guess it’s where they keep implementing changes. Maybe April will be easier. If not I hope this helps!

  5. I’m really pleased to be able to say that I’m only interested in brown eyeliner, and not black. That’s a big deal for me, but I wish I could do the same for mascara. I have so many black mascaras and the color is far too harsh for me, but please give me a brown one to try!

    • I second the motion, but unfortunately, most prestige cosmetic companies are simply not making brown ones. I don’t know if it’s because it doesn’t sell well or if they’re more interested in being known as the blackest of all time mascara.

      • Chanel sells a good one!

        I was just looking at the colors of mascaras, and it does seem like there is some competition: black out, excessive black, deep black, blackest black, super black…

    • Haha, I love Tarte’s Lifted formula…. which comes ONLY on brown! I wish they’d make a black one!

  6. Thank you MSA for telling us about this! I really enjoyed being able to tailor my preferences this way.

    • You’re welcome! Hopefully, your glam bags improve! 🙂

  7. I did this a few months ago… I have so much mascara and I put to rarely send it to me and every bag so far has had mascara lol

  8. I guess I am only one that didn’t see improvement to bag. I actually had this option few months ago thought maybe they would stop sending neutral eye-shadow since that was only shade I said rarely to. Nope caramel colored eyeshadow last month then this month I am getting brush and highlighter both marked rarely .

    • I have opposite problem. I want neutral and got orangish red this month. Every month seems to get brighter.

  9. I’m not even going to complain about there not being a “never” option. Ipsy isn’t going to give one of those because it’s not their policy to promise that you will never recieve a certain product. I am super happy with this new way to make my profile more specific! I think it’s fantastic that Ipsy is doing what they can to improve personalization. This is my favorite sub hands down. They have the only personalized curation, the ability to add on items we did not get but wanted and the best customer service! I do not have one bad thing to say about Ipsy.😊

    • Agree😃

    • I agree. I’m fine with there not being a “never” option. For instance I don’t want hair products or nail polish but if it’s sent to me I can always give it to my mom or sisters. I’ve tried several other subs and Ipsy is the best imo.

  10. Is anyone else NOT able to access this? I was able to on my iPad starting maybe two months ago, and now I can’t access it there, nor on Chrome (which I usually use for a second bag) or Firefox (which I usually use for my Plus). Safari won’t even load anything on ipsy, saying it can’t establish a secure connection! This is frustrating because I really do like the new quiz.

    • That’s weird. I had no trouble with Firefox and I have the ad-blocker program.

      Much as I hate suggesting it, maybe you should try Internet Explorer.

    • I have been trying to access this for a while now and can’t. I just keep getting the old one.

  11. I love this! I did it not to long ago, and I think the regular $10.00 Glam Bag has changed for the better!💕 Just my opinion!

    • My experience exactly. My last two bags were better than ever.

  12. Can anyone tell me how to opt out of the 2 items?

    • You can email ipsyCare off of their website! I hope that helps🙂

  13. Great! I just wish there was a “never” option,

    • Agree

  14. Thank you! I updated mine.

  15. I agree there should be a “never” option but think this type of profile preference is a huge improvement from what we had available previously. Time will tell whether rarely, sometimes & often (all relative terms) affects the shades & products I get

  16. It’s weird. I have 2 accounts and I was given the option to take the new quiz on one account a month or more ago and it’s been constantly popping up for me to take it (again) anytime I open the app but my other account has yet to pop up with the new quiz even once. I’ve been just waiting to see if they’ll offer it to me to take but seems they probably won’t so I’ll just go take it myself lol

    Also, anyone notice it’s the exact same quiz as the old one just now we’re able to answer specifically for each individual item as opposed to a group of items? It’s nice to be able to be more specific about our preferences 🙂

  17. Thank you! This survey is new to me. Please more glam bag plus spoilers!

  18. This quiz has been on Ipsy for new subscribers for a few months now, personally I don’t like it because there is no “never” option. I like lipstick for instance but not lipgloss, so the new quiz means they would probably still send me lipgloss. I know you can opt out of 2 items, but there are more than 2 types of items that I would rather never receive.

    • Lipstick and Lip gloss are two separate questions but yes it would be great to have a never option!

    • Agreed. The one issue I have is not having a “never” option. Especially for GBP where you’re getting FS items.

    • There never has been a “never” option.

      Hopefully this new quiz will cause less confusion, because every month I’d see someone saying, “I got X but I don’t have it checked in my profile!” and clearly not understanding how the profile works.

      • If you DM them on Twitter, you can opt out of up to 3 catagories.

  19. Hmm, I guess I was in the beta, I had this quiz a month ago.

    • Same here. I did this quiz before I recieve my Feb glambag.

    • Me too. I did mine over after seeing what I was getting this month. After a string of 4 months with 4-5 star glam bags, this was the 3rd month in a row that I received 0 star bags. So hopefully this helps both ipsy & me by next month, otherwise I’m canceling.
      Has anyone else been getting their bag within the last 5 days of the month? I had add-on items with both those bags, so maybe that’s why.

      • Nope! I recieved mine last week and no add one. Hope you get yours very soon😊

      • add-ons not add one😁

      • Agreed. I think there definitely should be a never option. Seems like rarely doesn’t help much. I haven’t been getting this very long so time will tell. Seems like the lower I rate something (bright eyeshadow for instance), the brighter it is the next month.

  20. Is this for GBP too?

    • Yes. I have both subs and I guess I was one of the first people to get this new quiz. I filled mine out last week and confirmed with Ipsy Care it applies to both subs if you have them both on the same account.
