  1. Grabbed the coola, guava mango sounds delicious and I didn’t get the last one they had, I think it was the white tea face sunscreen. So happy I got this one though since it’s a giant tube! I live in a coastal area in the south and the UV index here is no joke. Been eyeing this anyways since I’ve been on a sunscreen hunt. I have some new La Roche posay for my face already but now I have the coola for my body. Super happy with this!!

    And of course I got the SLMISSGLAM brush because I’m a sucker for them and grab one every time they’re available.

    Also got the innisfree clay mask. Love k-beauty and this is a nice size. Will be using it in my tzone.

    Fingers crossed they don’t screw up the add-ons again this month. Last month they forgot to send mine and sent it later in the month.

    • I have not received my glam bag for months and am still being charged. All customer service numbers are out of service. Anyone else having this problem? Have to cancel thru my bank.

      • If you email them, they generally respond fairly fast. Usually within 48 hours.

  2. Hello, I’m confused on how Ipsy works and didn’t realize I had to log in yesterday to select my samples. Am I correct that its too late AND if I’m wondering if anyone knows what I will get it since I missed that deadline. Thanks, Carla

    • You will still get your regular bag. These are just the add-ons and they’re available for 24 hours. They are scheduled to go live on the 2nd of the month, 9am EST but they go on as early as 7am est, they’ve been inconsistent with the actual time. You’re only allowed to checkout once so make sure you get everything you want. Also you’re able to get 3 add-ons per bag. So if you’re subbed to both the Glam bag and plus bag/box then you can get six add-ons.

      • Thanks for kindly taking the time to reply. Does this mean that with Ipsy you cant ever chose your bag items? Some give you options to choose an item or to by a certain time.

  3. first time doing add-ons and I heard they go fast so I purchased the innisfree clay mask ASAP. when i tried to return to page it was no longer available!!! can some one explain the process to me? do they only allow 1 time check out??

    • KatKat, you have to select ALL your choices (up for 3) first and THEN check out. They only allow to check out once. As soon as you check out, that’s it, you are done with your adds on. Next time, select all your items before you hit “checkout”.

    • Yes… you can purchase up to 3 items, but you can only check out once.

  4. Aloha my fellow Ipsy 💗’s!
    I am new to add on but since I missed out on a lot of cool products last month I set my alarm for today. It makes me feel better to know others agonize over their choices lol! I find myself researching like crazy. I ended up getting:
    ~Coola SPF
    ~ Moisture Mask
    ~TokyoMilk Lip Gloss
    Im a sucker for a good gloss & adore all things TokyoMilk.
    Praying I will not be disappointed since its a new product.
    I love Avene products & Coola since Summer is upon us felt right.
    Debating on bumping up to IGBP but with the add ons things are gettin’ $$
    Any advice?

  5. I am proud that I purchased zero add ins. I went a little crazy last night and bought that $49.99 Ipsy offer. I just have to have that necklace! Happy Mom’s Day to me! I am getting those awful Mac yellow drops, the RCo hair stuff, the Skin Drink, a blending brush and either the Ofra Mocha or Versailles lip gloss. My email spoiler indicated Versailles (happy) and the app spoiler is Mocha, may be too dark. I can lighten it with that awful Anastasia from Allure!

  6. There was sooo much I wanted! I ended up adding the Coola, Pixi Glow pads and clay pore cleanser. Love Coola and excited to try the others!

  7. I got the Goldfaden MD moisturizer, the Bella Pierre setting powder, & Neogen Dermology cleanser sample. The way they talked about the cleanser in the Insta live yesterday intrigued me for sure. It sounds very different; it’s a paste you apply to your dry face & rub around, then you add water & it foams up & rinses off.

  8. I added the Oryza palette. Looks interesting.

  9. Didn’t get any this time. I started subscribing to GBP this month in addition to the regular bag, so I felt I was going to be getting enough stuff. Was tempted by the Coola sunscreen, though.

  10. Sunday Riley- Good Genes already SOLD OUT! It let me order it but then I received an email that it was out of stock boo!

  11. This was the first month that BOTH my regular and plus bags were a total bust, so I agonized over add ons since I wanted everything I didn’t get. Ultimately I chose:

    SR Good Genes x 2
    Hola Neon matte liquid lipstick
    Coola sunscreen
    Bellapierre setting powder
    Youth to the people superfood cleanser

  12. Glam bag I added:
    Sunday Riley Good Genes
    Goldfaden MD Vital Boost Daily Moisturizer
    Feel Squalane + Facial Oil

    Ipsy Plus I added:
    Sunday Riley Good Genes
    Youth To The People Superfood Cleanser
    Neogen Clay Pore Cleanser

    • Ooooh, I was curious about that clay pure cleanser. Have you tried it? Let me know how it is!

      • I’ve never tried it, but it does sound pretty interesting. 🙂 I’m looking forward to giving it a go. For my cleansers, I’m currently in a stage of using any new deluxe samples I receive from boxes, so this will be getting used fairly soon!

  13. I added on the Neogen Dermalogy Pore Cleanser, RE:P Bio Fresh Mask, and FEEL Bright Daily Squalane + Facial Oil. I’m a skincare junkie.

    • Same here! I have both regular Ipsy & Ipsy Plus, and I added only skincare products to both of my bags. 😀

  14. I did the same thing, I have Eyeko eyeliner for life! I got the Pixi eyeliner – haven’t tried it but I love a black eyeliner. I also got the SR GG, and the wrinkle cream. My bag was decent – having a blending brush, R+Co shine cream, bang mascara, setting powder and a moisturizer from same brand of they eye cream last month.

  15. I got the Hola Neon in FOMO I got it before in DF and it is full size. It smells and tastes toxic until it dries but lasts a long time and such a pretty color.

  16. I added the R&Co Waterfall cream. I love that stuff and can always use a travel size of it.

  17. I got the two Pixi eyeliners.
    I opted out of eyeliners because I kept receiving Eyeko eyeliners.

    I have used the Pixi eyeliners and liked them.

  18. Got sunday ridley in GB and GBP and royal blush brush. I don’t like my GBP so not in the mood for much addons

  19. I got the Coola sunscreen, a blender brush, and the wrinkle cream. My box is looking pretty good this month aside from the lip liners since I don’t use them. I am hoping the Murad is full sized but 4 out of five items are great! Awesome value for GBP!

  20. I got the Ofra liquid lipstick in mocha, the buxom gloss, and the pixi eye pencil in the light colour.
    Question: it’s not even 8:30am, how come not all the add on options are available to me? For instance, the other pixi eye pencils or all the brushes?

    • It varies. Our add-ons never include what we get in our bags, but other than that, the selection varies, and some get sold out quickly. I checked at 6am, but I’m in CA, so there’s a disadvantage in terms of time zones.

    • They were probably sold out by that time. Add ons go pretty quick and I know some people who set alarms for this day. I was up at 5 am MST (work) and saw that add ons were available.

  21. I am so happy I got SR GG. The rest I had a hard time deciding on but decided on lip products as I’m pretty stocked with everything else. I wanted to agonize over it more but was worried the SR would run out….

    • Lol. I had the same issue! Ended up pulling the trigger quickly on the Sunday Riley, Pixi rose glow pencil, and Caviar hair product for fear that I would miss out on the Sunday Riley.

      • Same! I got the SR in both bags, yay!

      • YEP SR is gone! 🙁

      • I am usually 1/2 coherent since I get up early and would love to agonize over it but mostly did not want to miss out on SR! I am hit or miss on their stuff…but have wanted to try that one for a long time. I would love to spend time researching…I guess I should start watching Insta live….I got a lip balm too since though I love fanicies, I’m kinda a basic kinda girl and love a good lip balm. And the Buxom. I kinda wish I’d tried the Superfood Cleanser. Oh well! Enjoy!
