  1. Did anyone get a light Nudestix and would like to swap?

    • I did😊

    • Yes! Email me veronicanovajean @ Gmail.com

  2. I received these products:
    – Kandee Johnson Body Butter
    – Mascacra
    – Eau smoothing mask
    – lip pencil duo
    – eyeshadow palette.

    I really, really wanted the lip gloss and primer. Happy to trade with someone.

  3. I’m getting:

    * Wander Beauty Seascape Eyeshadow Palette
    * Go-To Face Hero
    * Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum
    * IL MAKIAGE Encore Volume & Water Resistant Mascara
    * Illamasqua Lip Colouring Pencil DUO in Lust & Media

    This is my first Plus bag, and I am beyond thrilled! So happy about the eye serum and face oil. The other items ain’t bad too. I can always use the two lip pencils as a lipstick base; I like the shape of the wand on the mascara and I’ve never tried waterproof mascaras before; and the eyeshadow looks very usable to me. Couldn’t ask for more!

  4. I love you ipsy but I’ve been taken off my ipsy high these last few months. I already knew that I couldn’t keep receiving an amazing box every single month a.k.a. you spoiled me lol but for me the last few boxes have been mehhh but I am glad that I received at least one item that I was hoping for the primer.
    Next month is looking amazing so I’m hoping for the best 😬

  5. I am so disappointed. I seemed to have gotten everything I didn’t want. The rarely column on the quiz!
    All the stuff I want frequently was not included.
    My regular bag is a dud as well this month. I should have taken the money on these two orders and just bought the orange body butter.

  6. I’m a bag twin with a few of you guys. I didn’t get the eye cream last month and would have loved to receive that along with the facial oil. Ipsy is starting to have too many variation like Boxy. I skipped April’s box and I wish I had skipped May’s as well.

    Purlisse
    Glamglow (I was hoping I wouldn’t end up getting these but I had a feeling I would end up with them anyway)
    Illamasqua Duo (I could always use a lip liner)
    Yensa
    Wander Palette

    Add-on
    Oryza
    Estee Lauder Lip Paint Coral
    Ofra Cosmetics Mocha

  7. For those who are disappointed that they receive the lip pencils, did you know you can actually use them for overall lip color, not just as a liner?!? Found this suggestion on the Illamasqua website when I was researching a little more into the brand and the pencils seem to be very highly rated. I’m going to give this a try with perhaps a lip gloss of some sort over the top and see how it works.

    • I line and fill my lips with pencil all the time because I usually just like to wear lip balm and that technique gives me some natural looking color. I’m so excited for those lip pencils bc I have been using an ulta brand one that is a pretty color but does not stay on all day.

    • I was happy to get the liners because I always use lip liners over the entire lip. it really lasts well on its own that way, or it can be a base for a sheerer color.

    • Thanks for the tip! I got the lip pencils and never wear them usually so I will definitely try that!

  8. So my first bag from Plus. I’m not sure what to think of it. Half my bag is good, and the other half isn’t. I’m getting:

    Murad Eye Serum (Yessss!!!! This is the one item I’m thrilled about)

    Go-to Face Hero Oil (Sounds good. I can play with that, but I had face oils marked rarely.)

    Wandress Palette (Well I have marked that I like Eyeshadows, but I hate Wandress stuff)

    Ilmasqua Lip Liners (Wait what? I have marked that I love just about every form of lip product except lip liner which I have marked as hating. There’s an amazing looking Estee Lauder liquid lip and you send me me lip liner?)

    Mascara (Really?!!! I’ve put down on the quiz not to send me mascara, I’ve given tons of reviews saying don’t send me mascara, I’ve done surveys saying to stop sending as many mascaras. Really, Ipsy?)

    Oh well. I was hoping for the sheet masks though. But the Murad is awesome. I figure I would have paid 25 for that so everything else is bonus stuff.

    • The EL lip isn’t actually a variant in boxes, it’s only available as an add-on. Ipsy started doing this with certain products a few months ago, & I’m not a fan of the practice.

  9. I’m ok with my bag. I got the body butter, primer, glamglow masks, lip liners and wander palette. I wanted the face oil, but see they have one next month, so maybe I’ll get lucky (fingers crossed, really really want ceo Sunday Riley). I love glamglow, so I’m sure I’ll love the masks. I read that you can use the primer on its own, which I plan to try! I have a ton of lotion, but always like trying new ones. I just got the fling wander palette in the in bloom Birchbox, swatched and pigment is great. Only item I won’t use too much is the lip liner, I’ll keep lust and give media to my mom. I’m extremely pale and she has a nice olive complexion.

  10. I am looking for the Yensa and the Nudestix in either light shade. I am on swaps and posted the face oil, lip liners, and Wander palette. I also have Goldfaden eye serum listed

  11. I paused for May and June. Very happy I did so.

  12. I’m pretty happy with my box this month. There are a few items I would definitely be open to swapping for though, should anyone be interested.

    I’m getting: go to face oil (love face oils and I wanted this), murad retinol eye cream (LOVE murad and anything with retinol so this is a major score), the waterproof mascara (not familiar with the brand), the lip pencils, and the eye shadow pallet. I added on the purlisse orange creamsicle body butter 🙂

    I was hoping for the nudie stick in a very light shade and the glam glow masks. If anyone wants to trade something for the nudie stick, I’m on the swap site or you can just let me know here and I’ll give you my email address.

  13. My bag:

    GlamGlow bubble masks – I have a huge stash, but love bubble masks, so yay!
    Il Makiage mascara – I go through a lot of mascara, so good.
    Yensa Primer – haven’t found a HG primer yet, so good.
    Nudestix – right color, yay!
    Wander Beauty Palette – i actually like the colors other than the blue, so yay!

    Added on:

    Smashbox palette in Major Metals – evidently I just can’t have enough palettes :S
    Pixi by Petra Glow Peel Pads
    SR Good Genes

    Not their most exciting month, but all the items will be used. So far Ipsy really hasn’t let me down. I don’t think this meets their stated value, but it’s worth what I spent to me, so I’m happy!

  14. For those who this is their 1st box, it has been better and should get better than this one. The value is always there but, I’ve been getting this since basically when they 1st started and this month is my least fav.

  15. Just ordered the vaycay ready package cant wait! $353 value for $49!!! I’ve been wanting the huda coral obsession pallet!!! Amazing on blue eyes! My makeup artist always puts coral on me!

  16. Getting almost the exact box as Liz! Got the Tokyo milk instead of the primer!

    • Me too. I really wanted the Murad and changed my profile hoping that’d work since I haven’t gotten an eye cream yet. I’ll use the oil and lip gloss. Rest will get donated since swap is likely already overloaded with lip pencils haha. Hope June is better.

  17. Very pleased with my choices this month. ~$230 (!!!) retail value for the following:

    Go-To Face Hero
    Murad Eye Serum
    Lip Pencil Duo
    Yensa Tone Up Primer
    Wander Eyeshadow Palette

    I’ve had one other box with the same value before. I have so many products because of FFF, so I dropped that sub recently. The Ipsy GBP is the only one I’m keeping because of the variety of products and almost unreal return on investment. I’m paying ~11% retail value for these products, which is by far the best I’ve seen for any sub box. They are also following my preferences closely, which I appreciate.

    • Box twins! I was excited to get the Yensa primer as I read great reviews about it when it was last’s months sample for the regular GB. Love Murad and so far have liked mostly every Wander product (minus the mask that wouldn’t peel off). Plus heard that the oil is a popular brand in Australia? Very happy with my box this month.

      Add ons: GG (of course!) and buxom and hola lippies.

      • I’m excited about the primer, too. 🙂

    • I wish they would follow my beauty preference profile 😕

  18. I received the same thing.
    This is my first ipsy glam plus box. I am actually quite disappointed. I don’t think the items that I will be receiving are worth $25. I was hoping I would get the Murad eye serum (now that’s really worth it).
    Lipliner is like mehhh..

    It also seems that this month’s ipsy bag has better stuff than the deluxe one. I don’t know I may cancel it if the next month’s is not good

  19. I got exactly what I would have picked for myself with those options: lip pencils, masks, primer, blur stick, and eyeshadow. My add-on page says I got the blur stick in Light 1 but my home page said Light 3, so I contacted IpsyCare. They got back to me within an hour confirming that I was getting Light 3 and said that the pages just show the item, not necessarily the color option. This would be the first time, though, that my add-on page showed the wrong one, so we’ll see.

  20. I really dont like my box this month every other month I have loved it I’m getting the primer, wonder beauty palette, body lotion, il makiage mascara and the lip liners I hoping next month is better

  21. How do you get approved for the swap page? I have requested twice because I really want an IT brush but I haven’t received a response.

    • It takes a while to be approved for the swap site. I applied under 3 different email addresses and it took about 4 or 5 months for me to be added. Its definitely a waiting game.

    • Check ebay for the It brushes. It’s my understanding that they have some on there for around $12, some people commented that they bought them there after they weren’t available as add ons. The swap site wait was the same for me at around 4-5 months.

  22. Hey Liz (or anyone else who can help), I’m trying to list an item for swap and it’s not working. I have all the forms filled correctly and I keep pressing the “add item and continue” button but it’s not doing anything. I’m logged in and I’m on the swap site. My internet is fine. Help please!

    • That happens to me only If im copying and pasting the title. Either type it in manually or erase the last letter and retype it .

  23. Liz- We are almost bag twins this month except I’m getting the soothing moisture mask instead of the face oil. Other than the Wander Beauty eyeshadow palette and I’m not thrilled with my bag this month. *shrug*

  24. This is my first bag. I got:

    Purlisse creamsicle body butter
    Illamasqua pencil duo in lust and media
    Glamglow masks
    Yensa primer
    Wander Beauty palette

    I’m pretty happy with my bag. The add-ons aren’t spectacular but maybe that’s a good thing for my bank account. 🙂

  25. Hello, is anyone willing to swap their Face Hero oil with me?

    • I just replied under your last comment. What do you have to swap?

    • I might also depending what you have

  26. My Ipsy Glam Plus includes:

    GO-TO Face Hero Oil
    Il Makiage Mascara
    Illamasqua Lip Liner Duo
    Tokyomilk Lip Gloss
    Wander Beauty Palette

    For Add-On’s, I got:

    Bare Minerals setting spray
    Buxom lip polish
    R&Co leave in conditioner.

  27. I didn’t really get anything I wanted! 🙁

    I’m more excited about my add-ons than my box, and they were cheaper!!!

  28. This is my first glam bag plus, and I’m disappointed. I got the same bag as Liz, except instead of the primer, I got the bubble masks. I should have stuck with the glam bag, I’m almost always thrilled with its contents. Oh well, here’s hoping for next month.

  29. I’m getting the same as Liz, except I’m getting the Murad eye serum instead of mascara.

    Unsure if I’m going to like the primer. I am getting sooo tired of primary colors in eyeshadows.

    For Add-ons, I got full-sizes of Coola, Huda Beauty’s gloss, and Tokyo Milk’s gloss.

  30. I’m getting:

    PURLISSE Butter Me Orange Creamsicle Body Butter

    GLAMGLOW Bubblesheet Oxygenating Deep Cleanse Mask

    ILLAMASQUA Lip Colouring Pencil Duo in Lust & Media

    IL MAKIAGE Icon High Volume & Intense Curl Mascara

    WANDER BEAUTY Wanderess Seascape Eyeshadow Palette

    I am happy with everything except for the lip pencils. I never wear lip liners, so I just emailed them to opt out so that I don’t keep getting them in the future. However, for my first GBP, I am happy. I really wanted the body butter, and I am stoked that I did get it.

    • Box twin! I love most everything lip related but actual wood pencils can cause me to break out around my lips. Maybe this will be better… I usually just don’t line or use the plastic liners.

      I am not familiar with the mascara so I am apprehensive about even opening it vs putting it in my gift drawer.

      The glam glow masks I am excited about plus I love Kandee Johnson so I want to try this for that reason. Meh about the wander palette but it looks pretty.

  31. Pretty happy with my May box! I got:

    – Seascape Palette (love the beach-y theme)
    – Mascara (just ran out of mascara, so perfect!)
    – Go To Face Oil (woo!!! the thing I wanted most)
    – Lip Pencil Duo (don’t use lip liners but willing to give ’em a shot!)
    – Glam Glow Masks (excited to try these – love skin care)

    Added on:

    – R+CO Waterfall Hair Treatment (I am intrigued by this, no idea why)

    -TOKYOMILK Lip Gloss (loooove the color, just hope it isn’t sticky & it looked too good to pass up for almost half-price!)

  32. I have the exact same box and can’t believe I’m saying this, but this month is very bleh for me. Nothing really that I am excited about. I guess Ipsy Plus can’t smash it every month.

  33. So in love with my bag!

    GO-TO
    Face Hero

    MURAD
    Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum

    ILLAMASQUA
    Lip Colouring Pencil Duo in Lust & Media

    YENSA
    Tone Up Primer Essential Glow

    WANDER BEAUTY
    Wanderess Seascape Eyeshadow Palette

    Almost twinsies with the one in the post above, but I got the Murad Eye Serum instead of the mascara.

    Is my first bag, and I couldnt be happier.

    • I’m box twins with you. I have loved a few boxes better, but there might be some real hero sleepers in it. I’m crossing my fingers and hopefully going to love it.

  34. I agree that it’s not the best month for Plus, but this box is still undoubtedly worth it. I really can’t believe how hard some people come for Ipsy at the first disappointment. Everyone saw most of this month’s spoilers in advance, we all knew this was coming. I feel like Ipsy could have avoided some discontent if they had more nudestix to send. I mean, I got 2 lip products and a mascara because I’m opted out of primer and there were no other make-up items available. It seems pretty standard that for most people Plus includes 3 makeup and 2 skincare items. I just don’t know what people expect, they don’t have a large number of items to pull from to begin with and if you’re limiting your profile like I do, then you are going to get things you don’t have marked as wanting. They don’t have a choice when they don’t have the selections you want. The only skincare I got at all was the oil, the rest of my box was makeup, some of which I had marked rarely, and my value was much lower than a lot of others. That’s fine, they can’t nail it for me every month and I do not expect them to…that’s just asking to be disappointed. Next month will be better because Ipsy GBP has the best curation, when there is an off month, it is always followed by a stellar one. Who else allows you a profile and attempts to follow it? Fair warning here, if you dare say Boxy, I’m going to argue that they don’t even attempt to follow it.😉 It’s fine to be disappointed and express that, but when I see people threatening to cancel over one disappointing box…I mean, really?

    • I noticed that they have the nudestix in the shop for 35,25 after cash back so they definitely have enough

    • Nicole, I could not agree with you more. Everything you said hit the nail on the head. The fact that ipsy has a profile for each member and usually adhere to the profile requests, well that alone sets them apart. And as you said, there are limited items to choose from, so you will likely get something you arent totally thrilled about but still get other items that perfectly match your requests.

      This month is pretty dang good for me. Not the best, but certainly not bad. For some of these people to say they are cancelling GBP after their FIRST box not being PERFECT?? That’s ridiculous, but oh well, see ya! Free up some spots for people who actually can be pleased.

    • They are selling the nudestix in the shopper section so they did have enough of them :/

      • Most of the items in Shopper actually ship directly from the company, not Ipsy, so it is very possible that Ipsy does not have these in stock.

        • Exactly Ricki! If they had a lot of them, they wouldn’t hold back and they would also be available as add on’s. Ipsy is in this to make money, not to sit on product in hopes you will buy it at full price instead. Most people won’t, they will just get over the fact it wasn’t in their box and move on.

        • I wasn’t aware of how shopper works but thanks for replying and keeping it polite 👍

    • Thank You Nicole. I love it when someone with common sense, states the facts !!!! Ipsy has been doing an amazing job and doing the best they can to match our profiles with a still limited amount of products. They are adding to the products/brands frequently and sending out quizzes asking us what we want to see for brands & products. After each one, more products and new brands have been added to our boxes. People are complaining about getting lip products. At least we’re getting wearable, not expired products, unlike what I and many, many others have gotten in boxy. I saw a comment somewhere in here, and the gal stated she expected to see a 125% value since Ipsy costs more than boxy…OMGosh !!!! Really???? A whole $4 more and the brands, quality and value we’ve been getting since day one, the reg boxy doesn’t come close to. Their Dec. luxe box that cost twice as much as Ipsy Plus, had about the same value as we got that month from Ipsy…without junk/filler products or dangerous exploding chargers that came in boxy. If the complainers want to cancel after the first Plus they get….good, go complain to boxy when you aren’t getting the same quality the rest of us will be getting in Plus. It will open up room for those that really want and will enjoy Ipsy. Most of us have enough sense to know that sometimes we won’t want or use everything in the box. But…the value is always there and then some. Usually 1 product alone pays for the box. I’m Loving Ipsy !!!!

      • Hear, hear! 🙂

  35. Also hoping to swap the face oil for eye cream

  36. This is an okay month. Not the best like the last 4 months for me but that’s okay considering I’ll use most of my box. I got:

    GO-TO Face Hero: Wanted and got yay!

    IL MAKIAGE Icon High Volume & Intense Curl Mascara: Didn’t care of I got this. I have a ton of mascaras but I rotate them out so nothings wasted.

    ILLAMASQUA Lip Colouring Pencil Duo in Lust & Media: Didn’t want. I have too many lip pencils that never, ever get used. And no one in my life uses them really either. I said Never for lip pencils and still got. I’ll survive lol

    YENSA Tone Up Primer Essential Glow: Wanted and got yay! Never heard of this brand (is in K-Beauty?) looks intriguing.

    WANDER BEAUTY Wandress Seascape Eyeshadow Palette: I didn’t care if i got this. The color Sea Foam has caught my eye!

    Add-On: SUNDAY RILEY Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment: Have wanted to try this! I was hoping they would put a different OFRA highlight in add-ons.

  37. I just subscribed to the GBP and received an email from Ipsy stating that my first bag will be the June bag, not the May bag. Not a big deal for me, just wanted to mention it since the post states the first bag will be the May bag.

    • Sorry about that! Updated the post!

  38. Wow I’m pretty disappointed. I modified my settings to get the NudeStix bronzer and was sad not to see it. I know not everyone can get it.

    My box:
    – TokyoMilk Lip gloss
    – Illamasqua lip pencil
    – Il Makiage mascara
    – Go-To Face Hero oil
    – Wander Beauty Wanderess Seascape Eyeshadow Palette

    If anyone wants to swap, let me know!

  39. Anyone want to swap the fair nudestix to me for the lip pencils I am listing them here right now

  40. I skipped this month, first time since I subbed back in October. But I’m not regretting it. But def will be back for June I think

  41. i’m cancelling…my first month and $27? that just seems like too much compared to boxycharm

  42. This is what I got:

    Glamglow Mask set (will swap)

    Nudestix (I really wanted this)

    IL Makiage mascara (this is my 3rd mascara from them and I haven’t even gotten close to finishing the first two)

    Yensa primer (don’t care for it)

    Wander beauty palette (I’m ok with this but I’m on palette overload so might swap)

    Add-ons:

    Coola mango sunscreen (yes!)
    Slmissglam brush (love these brushes)
    Innisfree clay mask (love!)

    Overall a 1/5. Probably the worst box I’ve gotten so far. I have skincare rated high especially serums and oils. Super disappointed that I didn’t get the Murad or the face hero oil. Feels like they half-assed the customization this month. I’m more excited about my add-ons 🥴

  43. I got the same bag as Liz! Only excited about the primer and facial oil; but that covers the cost of the box so I’m not mad about it.

  44. Be careful if you have a nut allergy and get the face oil. The ingredients list at least three different “NUT OILS”!

    Sorry if this is a duplicate post but I don’t see my original one.

    • I reached out to the company to see if their nut oils are refined. My son is allergic to all treenuts and legumes but refined oils have never been a problem.

      This was their reply:

      Thanks so much for getting in touch and definitely a good one to check on before using! There are lots of really technical, science-y information we could write about but essentially this is what you need to know:

      8 of our products contain nut oils:

      Very Useful Face Cream – sweet almond oil
      Exceptionoil – sweet almond oil
      Lips! – sweet almond oil
      Pinky-Nudey Lips! – sweet almond oil
      Super Handy – macadamia nut oil
      Face Hero – sweet almond oil, macadamia nut oil + brazil nut
      Zincredible SPF 15 – shea butter derived from the nut of a tree
      Zincredible SPF 15 Tinted – shea butter derived from the nut of a tree

      The suppliers of these nut oils have all declared that the nut oils are highly refined and are devoid of any allergen protein (the protein is the bit which causes the reaction). However, allergic reactions are very personal and can range from a mild reaction to one that is severe and life-threatening (anaphylaxis). Whilst we are fairly confident our products should be safe to use, we cannot offer an iron-clad guarantee it is 100% free from nut allergens.

      The more severe reactions tend to be to those ingredients that are ingested rather than topically applied so you might want to reconsider if you are thinking about purchasing either our Lips! and Pinky-Nudey Lips! and have a known allergy to almonds.

      However, with any known allergies it’s always best to take precautionary measures, so we would recommend you do a patch test of the product (apply just inside the elbow) to establish if your allergy extends to products applied topically. If you have a specific allergy to almonds, here’s a link you may find useful: http://www.aaaai.org/ask-the-expert/anaphylaxis-topical-almond-oil

      Don’t forget, if you have family members with nut/egg/diary allergies, especially those likely to come into contact with your skin (toddlers or spouses), it would also be worth doing a patch test on them first too…in the case of a baby/toddler we recommend doing this under the supervision of a doctor.

  45. This is my first glam bag plus (as well as first glam bag regular too! Very new to subscriptions but signed up because I am really excited for June’s GBP spoilers as a skincare addict)

    I got :

    Go-To Face Hero (excited for this)

    Avene moisture mask (excited for this)

    Illamasqua Lip Pencils (not about the red lip life but not mad about these because I love gifting red lip things to my girl friends since they are red lip addicts. And I know the quality is excellent)

    Tokyomilk Lip Gloss (ambivalent about this though I do like the color. I don’t mind trying it though, probably the points of subscription boxes it to try stuff!)

    Wander Beauty Eyeshadow Palette (not excited by this as I don’t wear eyeshadow except to formalize events, though I know Wander Beauty is an excellent brand. It seems like everyone is getting this in their gbp though? Is this correct, that this palette is the constant for every subscriber this month?)

    • If you don’t want eyeshadow you should email them to opt out of it. You can opt out of two categories of items. You can’t opt out of “nude eyeshadow ” but you can totally opt out of eyeshadow.

  46. Whatever I am doing in terms of eliminating types of products I am not interested in seems to be working as I like everything I am receiving and didn’t receive any of the products I had no interest in.

    I got

    Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Eye Serum – I do have a bunch of eye serums but I like Murad and I can use retinol and I did not ask for eye stuff to be excluded

    Wander Beauty – Like everyone else, I have more eye shadow than 25 makeup artists could use in a lifetime but I think the colors in this are really great for my tones and somewhat unique in the combination so I am happy. I discovered Wander through subscription boxes but I’ve always been pleased with the quality

    Yensa Primer – So happy about this one as I had just run out of a sample I received in another box. This is great stuff as it even masks some acne scars I have on my nose. It really isn’t oily but I find that some of the really mattifying primers make my skin look extremely dry and actually age me.

    Go To Face Hero – I have a load of face oils but I can’t complain about getting another one. I might wind up gifting it to a friend because I have a backlog of Sunday Riley stuff and I currently have a full bottle of Murad I am attempting to use up. I don’t like opening up a bottle to use a little bit – especially a full size bottle – so I have quite a few on tap that I can’t justify using until I use up the large bottle of Murad.

    I’m not thrilled about a lip pencil but it is what it is and I do actually use lip pencils in the right color. I form an x at my Cupid’s bow and it helps me define that area instead of having a blob in the middle of my lips :-).

    My advice is to really use the beauty profile as well as the quiz that asks how often you want to receive certain items. When spoilers come out, you can go in and readjust depending on whether you might want particular items or want to avoid

    • I got the same!!

      Also not crazy about the lip pencil set, but so happy with everything else that it MORE than makes up for it!

  47. I got the same bag as Liz except for a matte lip crayon that isn’t shown in the shoulders instead of the Yensa. First month that both my bags were a total disappointment, but that’s okay. All the other months have knocked it out of the park.

  48. Very happy with my 2 Glam Bag Plus for May ( my reg. Glam Bags aren’t showing up yet for some reason).

    Getting:
    Go-To Face Hero Facial Oil — Looks like good ingredients

    EAU THERMALE AVÈNE Soothing Moisture Mask– Love this

    ILLAMASQUA Lip Colouring Pencil Duo in Lust & Media- truly great lip pencils and I need the lip line definition as lip border color fades with the passing of time.

    TOKYOMILK Lip Gloss– Yes! Give me all the Margot Elena 🙂

    WANDER BEAUTY Wanderess Seascape Eyeshadow Palette- Beautiful!

    Added to one GBP box::
    PURLISSE Butter Me Orange Creamsicle Body Butter– Hope it’s nice

    COOLA Classic Body Organic Sunscreen Lotion SPF 50 in Guava Mango– Good price, can’t get too much sunscreen!

    Forgot what I added to the other one, LOL

  49. Very pleased with my box this month! I got the Wander palette (love), Glamglow masks (love), body butter (wanted to try), primer (wanted to try), and lip liners (meh). I really wish the Murad had been in add ons though. I also added the Sunday Riley Good Genes (love), and Pixi Glow Peel Pads, and redeemed points for the Purlisse Coconut and Orange Blossom body butter, because apparently I need all the body butter.

    • You’ll love the body butter, it smells divine!

      • Good to know, thanks! It sounds great but it’s hard to be sure without smelling it first. I prefer using scented body butter instead of perfume in the summer so I’m really excited to try this.

  50. My Ipsy Plus includes:

    Illamasqua Lip Pencil in Lust & Media
    There are two lip pencils shown, so does that mean I get two? Regardless, these will be gifted since I don’t use lip pencils.

    Glamglow Bubblesheet Mask
    Again, there are three shown, so do I get three? I’m excited to try these! I saw some at Marshalls or TJ Maxx, but I wasn’t willing to pay the price they were charging for them (I think it was like $8/mask), so I’m really glad to be able to try these through my sub.

    Il Makiage Mascara
    Woo-hoo!!! Another mascara! I’ll always take all of the mascaras I can get!

    Yensa Tone Up Primer Essential Glow
    I’m sure this will be gifted since my super oily face likes to glow on its own.

    Wander Beauty eyeshadow palette
    This will be gifted since I don’t wear eyeshadow

    Overall, I think my bag was okay this month. I’ll only be keeping two things in it, but at least I know the items I’ll gift will be going to someone who will love them.

    Add ons:
    Sunday Riley Good Genes
    Youth To The People Superfood Cleanser
    Neogen Clay Pore Cleanser

    • It says lip pencil duo – so I think we are getting two. I love using these as a lip primer, basically. It helps my lip colors stay longer! If that wears off, some, its still like a nice lip stain effect.

      • Thanks for your reply 🙂 I saw the “&”, but my skeptical mind wasn’t sure if they were showing the possible options we could get. Good to know there will be two lip pencils (and three sheet masks)!

    • Using face oil actually slows your skins natural oil production, so most people with oily skin find themselves less oily after they incorporate facial oils into their skincare routine. Just letting you know in case you want to give it a try. You could use it at night (after your moisturizer) if you’re worried about it making you oily during the day.😉

      • Thanks Nicole! I love using face oils at night (I’m using one right now!), but I just think that my skin will always be oily regardless of what I use.

        • My skin was very oily, then I started using things for hydrating my skin and it made a huge difference. If I hadn’t listened to my derm I’d have continued using products for oily skin that were perpetuating the problem.

        • It should’ve included that my derm said my skin was dehydrated.
