  1. I’m getting:

    Eyeko Eye Do Liquid Eyeliner Travel Size in Carbon Black

    Sol de Janeiro Coco Cabana Body Cream

    Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Face Primer – Illuminating Primer

    Cuccio Colour Nail Polish in Gaia

    Eva NYC Satin Dream Leave-In Cream

    Inc.redible Jelly Shot Lip Quencher in Ex Revenge (add-on)

    It Cosmetics Confidence in a Gel Lotion Moisturizer (add-on)

    I’m pretty excited for everything but the Eva NYC, I’m not a big fan of leave-in hair products, but I’m really thrilled not to have gotten a mascara or an eyeshadow, Ipsy likes to send me those all the time.

  2. MY BAG:

    SOL DE JANIERO in Coco Cabana Body Cream – YESSSSSS this is the one thing I was really hoping for!

    ELIZABETH MOTT Thank Me Later Face Primer – it’s the only item I’m getting that is set to “Rarely”, and at least they sent me the mattifying version. I’ll try it.

    PAPA RECIPE – Bombee Honey Moisture Cleansing Foam – I have cleansers set to “often” and this looks like a good match for my combo skin. Yay!

    ADESSE All Day Lip Crème in Beverly Blvd – LOVE lipsticks, the berry color is perfect for fall, and I’m super excited to get this!

    LUXIE BEAUTY 237 Blending Dreamcatcher – I was a little sad that my first bag last month didn’t have a brush, so I was thrilled to see that I got one this month! I can never have enough brushes!

    ADD-ONS:

    SLMISSGLAM E61 Angled Shadow Brush – If one brush is good, two is better right? My inner 6-year-old couldn’t resist the sparkly handle.

    THRIVE CAUSEMETICS Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara – I’ve been wanting to try a “tubing” mascara.

    Is it bad that I also ordered a mascara just so I can rate mascaras as one star and hopefully never be sent one in my bag?

    • “Is it bad that I also ordered a mascara just so I can rate mascaras as one star and hopefully never be sent one in my bag?”

      That made me laugh, funny! I like how you think. Lol.

    • lol you can email them to opt out of two categories. I did so with mascara and nail polish. It worked well until last month when a mascara popped up in my IGBP box.

      • I’ve emailed to opt out of eye shadow and have gotten one every GBP. I always email to point out that I’ve opted out and they just say “this was the best match for you.” I got so sick of it I canceled. Well this month they sent a “come back and get a FREE gift” so I decided to try again. Guess what’s in my bag? An eye shadow palette!!!!! 🙁

      • I asked to opt out and they did, then I kept getting the items and they told me they don’t “do” opt outs anymore.

        • I asked to update my opt out and they said okay. I chose to opt out of highlighter and mascara and I didn’t receive anymore. I decided to change it to blush and mascara, but they said it takes a month to take effect.

        • Thats wonder why they told you that they dont do it anymore because I messaged them this month about receiving primers every month and they told me they could opt me out of getting primers in future bags.

          • I* not thats 😂

    • Well, a little.. because all you have to do is email Ipsy and tell them you’d like to opt out of mascara and they will never send you mascara after that!

      • I opted out of mascara but got one in my bag this time 🙁

      • I’ve heard many stories of people emailing to opt out of categories and still getting them. I’m trying to get ahead of the algorithm by purchasing an item from a disliked category, but a brand and type I’m actually interested in, so I can rate the brand high, but the category low. It’s more of an experiment than anything else, and if it results in a mascara each month, well then my friends will never have to buy mascara again!

  3. I got
    – SDJ Coco Cabana (chose this!)
    – SLMISSGLAM brush
    – Suva shadow in BBQ
    – Cuccio polish in Gaia
    – Belief Moisturizing Eye Bomb

    Will swap the brush & mayyyybe the shadow. Will be trying to swap for Space Case shadow in Intense Stargasm & Estate eye shadow in Smash.

    • I’m getting the Estate shadow in Smash and would be willing to swap for the Suva shadow.

      • Cool! Click my name to go to my swap page — I only list items once I have them in hand.

  4. Getting: Adesse in Beverly blvd, Ahava body lotion, Pixi blush in peach parfait, Belif eye cream, and Suva in BBQ

    Addons (full size) – It foundation in light

    Addons (sample) – Pixi lip balm, Luxie blending brush

    No box twins…?

    • Almost box twins! Getting everything except instead of the blush I’m getting the COLOR CLUB Nail Polish in ghosted. Another red polish, blah!

  5. I am totally disappointed in my entire bag. The Youth to the People and Eva Hair Creme are repeats from past bags. I buy this to try new things. The Elizabeth Mott primer is trash to me. It is loaded with 5 variations of dimethicone… this would wreck my already super dry skin. ANOTHER eye brush. Eyeshadow is one of my”no” items, so why do they keep sending shadow brushes? This is the fifth one in the past 12 months. The Adesse lip cream is a discontinued product which I received previously in a slightly different shade. Didn’t like it then, won’t like it now. I bought the IT Foundation and the Pulisse moisturizer full size, and the Thrive sample. Spent $28 to appease myself at 7 a m. I have used the foundation before. It is okay. Thought I would give it another shot. And I love everything Purlisse.

  6. I’m receiving

    EYEKO
    Beach Waterproof Mascara
    (Kinda meh about)

    SOL DE JANEIRO
    Coco Cabana Body Cream
    (Excited to try)

    INC.REDIBLE
    Jelly Shot Lip Quencher in Ex Revenge
    (Looks interesting)

    LUXIE BEAUTY
    237 Blending Dreamcatcher
    (Kinda meh about)

    NAILS INC
    Nail Polish in Weekend Superpowers
    (Not really liking this color)

    It’s an ok month for me at least ion getting a few items I’m excited about

  7. Here is my bag && I am very excited…

    THRIVE CAUSEMETICS- Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara in Brynn (Rich Black)

    ELIZABETH MOTT- Thank Me Later Face Primer (Matte)

    LUXIE BEAUTY- Brush 237 Blending Dreamcatcher

    COMELYCO- Blueberry & Peach Mask Set

    FEEL- Bright Early Squalane & Facial Oil

    Add on:

    SOL DE JANEIRO- Coco Cabana Body Cream

    • Same bag 🙂 I’m pretty happy about it!

  8. my bag:
    -adesse all day Lip Creme in Beverly Blvd

    -slmissglam E61 Angled Shadow Brush

    -shero science 2-in-1 Pore Purifying Cleansing Gel

    -buxom cosmetics Big Tease™ Plumping Mascara

    inc.redible Jelly Shot Lip Quencher in Ex Revenge

    Kind of a miss for me tbh, not my favorite bag. my profile preference was no red lip color, would have preferred the Thames Street shade, and I don’t need another eyeshadow brush. the mascara is meh. the cleanser and jelly shot look interesting to try out, so this bag was a 2/5 for me this month! can’t have stellar bags every month I suppose haha. here’s hoping Sept. will be better and I hope i might get the chance to pick a sample like others have!

  9. Overall I’m happy with my bag. However I always get the hippie in the darkest shade, and I’m super fair. I don’t know how else I could tweak my profile at this point to start getting lighter lip colors. I’m 33, maybe I need to lower the age on my profile ?

    • *lippie

    • They send a lot of dark lip colors and most of the nudes are that orangy brown/tan color. Thank goodness for me I like the darker colors, but they all start looking the same after awhile. What I wouldn’t give for a nice nude mauve or pink! I just gave up and I buy the lippies I want. In regard to the age of the profile, I’m 42 and get matched way better when I list my age as 30-35, so go figure. It might help to fiddle with the age, though I can’t say for sure but I’m happier with my items when I lower my age by at least 5 years. I’m fine with that!😂

  10. I did not get my email stating my ipsy reveals!!! BUMMER WHAT ARE YOU DOING IPSY
    L

    • You don’t need the email to login and see your reveal. Just go look.

  11. GB: Huda liner in trophy wife, Color Club in nothing but a smile, IT gel lotion, Suva eyeshadow in coriander, Eva leave-in cream

    I liked everything!!!

  12. 🙄 Seriously Ipsy??? Another eyeshadow brush?! I don’t even wear eyeshadow & have stated this every single time! But, here’s another one! That makes 7 eyeshadow brushes so far this year. There’s only one month this year that I have not gotten one. Primer , sheet masks, mascara, facial oil and another dreaded eyeshadow brush. I had some thoughts about add ons but only chose one. I decided on the full size It Cosmetics foundation. I bought one in medium. It’s definitely a shame that there are only 4 shades available. The medium is a shade I will only be able to wear in the winter. Even the tan is too light right now. But at least I won’t have to pay full price for it come Winter and can mix it with other shades I already have.

    • And I put down that I want brushes and never receive one.

      It makes me wonder how much attention Ipsy pays to our profiles.

      I guess the algorithm does not always work. And I wish they would stop sending me these boring nail polish colors. I ended up with Pillow Plush that is just not a shade I like!

      • There are some months where it’s just spot on! But usually about 3 months are and 3 months suck & the remaining 6 are somewhere in between. Ipsy was my 1st sub & the only one I’ve never skipped or canceled. Regardless of what I get, if I won’t use it, my daughter will or I have 3 nieces. At least with Ipsy, I still get the value. Even if it is for stocking stuffers or my girls. I can’t say that for any other. I just wish they would give certain items to those that want them. I’ve seen tweezers and eyelash curlers and powder brushes, but no, I get eyeshadow brushes? 🤷‍♀️At this point, even the girls are like, I don’t need another one… 😂

    • Don’t feel so bad that I will be recieving a third eyeshadow blending brush out of six bags, after you have gotten seven out of eight. I too have eyeshadow marked as rarely, just like nail polish, but nonetheless getting the Nails Inc. in green. Do have body lotion checked as often and am getting the CoCo Cabana lotion. Some say it has a strong, odd ,buttered popcorn like smell. It seems to be a love it or hate it scent…hopefully I like or at least don’t hate the smell.

  13. – Sheri Science cleansing gel (love trying new brands)
    – IT cosmetics gel moisturizer
    – SUVA Beauty eyeshadow in coriander
    – Luxie blending brush
    – Nails Inc polish in green

    Happy about everything except they constantly send me a single eyeshadow in a beige shade that does not show; what’s the point?

  14. My Reg. Glam Bags are the same on both accounts:

    PIXI BY PETRA Fresh Face Blush in Whisper Pink ( It’s another pink blush)

    IT COSMETICS Confidence in a Gel Lotion Moisturizer ( I use the Confidence Cream)

    SUVA BEAUTY Eyeshadow in BBQ ( Shade is beautiful!)

    ADESSE All Day Lip Crème in Beverly Blvd ( Looks like a nice berry)

    BIORACE Pore Purifying Spirulina & Tea Tree Clay Mask ( Probably TOTALLY wrong for my dry and sensitive skin and I hate the smell of tea tree oil)

    Overall, disappointing to get 2 identical bags, but I like the makeup.

    GBP X 2 are the WINNERS!!!

  15. I’m pretty happy with my bag, this month. For the Classic Ipsy, I’m receiving:

    Color Club Nail Polish in Ghosted
    Estate Cosmetics Highlighter in Lit
    Wander Beauty Peel Off Mask
    Space Cosmetics Eye Shadow in Intense Stargasm
    Sunday Riley Tidal Enzyme Water Cream (which I selected).

    • Looks good! I love that highlighter! (Bought it in last month’s flash sale)

    • We’re bag twins! I’m kinda ehhh about the bag, I hate the nail polish color and I don’t wear highlighter, blush or bronzer for that matter. But I’m ok with the wander peel off mask, the eyeshadow and I also chose the Sunday Riley as well.
      I added on the coco cabana, the balm lip stain and the in.credible lip quencher.

  16. well, the one thing I wanted I did not get…the sunday riley…nail polish please no nail polish..

    • Same. I’m guessing the only way to get the Sunday Riley was to choose it before hand 🙄😭 Hopefully I’ll get that option this month

      • It ended up in my bag without me selecting it.

  17. I’m really happy with my items this month!

    I’m getting the concealer brush, Thrive mascara, IT Cosmetics Gel Moisturizer, SUVA eyeshadow (Coriander) and Shero Science Cleansing Gel.

    I added the Belief Eye Bomb, Papa Recipe cleanser and Coco Cabana cream! 😀

  18. This was the second month in a row where my bag was just okay. I’m really not a fan of their new algorithm for assigning bags. I also found the add-ons this month to be disappointing. The products I really wanted – Tidal, the Nanette Lepore perfume, the YttP cleanser – weren’t available.

    I’m getting:

    SLMISSGLAM Angled Shadow Brush – I was hoping I’d get this; more brushes, please, Ipsy!

    SHERO SCIENCE 2-in-1 Pore Purifying Cleansing Gel – Anything “purifying” is going to be too drying for my dehydrated skin

    IT COSMETICS Confidence in a Gel Lotion Moisturizer – Fine, I guess? I would have preferred the Sunday Riley. Also not a fan of dimethicone-heavy products.

    SPACE CASE COSMETICS Eyeshadow in Intense Stargasm – So. tired. of. eyeshadows. I seriously get them every month, despite having them marked as “rarely send me.” At least this isn’t a color I already have.

    HUDA BEAUTY Lip Contour in Trophy Wife – I chose this.

    Added on IT COSMETICS Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer in Fair.

    So, once again, only 2/5 products I’m actually excited about, one of which I chose. Not great, Ipsy. You’re officially on probation.

    • I’m DYING to find more of the Shero Science cleanser😭😭😭😭

  19. I am done with the ‘pick a product’ option for my bags, unless I totally can’t live without one of the choice options😏. Every time I’ve choosen an item it seems to throw off the rest of my bag’s curation. Like this month I’m getting
    > Color Club Nail Polish in Ghosted
    I rarely use polish & have it marked rarely.
    > Estate Cosmetics Highlighter in Lit
    I have enough highlighter and don’t care for this brand.
    > Wander Beauty Peel Off Mask
    I really dislike peel off masks, also marked rarely.
    > Space Case Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Intense Stargasm
    Yuck, hate this shade!
    > Sunday Riley Tidal Cream
    The item I chose and the only item I’ll use.

    At least I can gift out the rest of my products to my daughter and mother-in-law and I love the bag so whatever. The last 4-5 months my bags have been great (before the pick a product) so I’m going back to leaveing it all up to Ipsy again.

    • You’re onto something, I have the same problem. Anytime I pick am item offered after Ipsy screws up my bag, I wind up with the worst possible curation. I definitely think it throws it off because I believe Ipsy has a certain number of variants within the bags, so when you pick an item you get stuck with whatever the other products are that go with that variant, instead of getting the closest match to your profile. Not explaining this very well…yeah, I just think it messes up the curation so I don’t choose anymore.

      • Yes that is exactly what happens! There are only a few bag variations for each product so once you pick a product you are severly limiting the number of bag options you can be matched with. I was offered to pick a product for my GBP this month but chose not to because I knew I would most likely get a box I would not enjoy and I’m glad I didn’t, I love my GBP this month! Unlike my regular Glam Bag, where I did pick a product and I am not so happy with it.

    • TBH, your bag sounds perfect to me! But I get it. The two bags I’ve gotten after I picked an item have not reflected my personalization settings at all.

    • @fetchingmommy – I also picked the Sunday Riley Tidal Cream and have the EXACT same bag as you. I’m trying to give it a chance but honestly am not thrilled with it. The nail polish is ok, but the rest I’m giving to my daughter if she even wants it. The add-ons literally saved this bag for me. I really hope choosing a product and buying add-ons doesn’t make every bag so bad. Gimme some good stuff, I’ll still probably buy add-ons anyway cuz I’m like that lol

    • I also have the exact same bag and I also picked the SR 😮

    • I also chose Sunday Riley and this was the bag I received as well, same with someone else who also chose Sunday Riley. so maybe they’re curated a certain way automatically when you pick a certain item?

    • I picked the Sunday Riley water cream. This is what I got in my bag:

      Pixi by Petra blush in peach parfait
      Suva Beauty eyeshadow in bbq
      Papa Recipe honey moisture cleansing foam
      Adesse lipstick in beverly blvd

      My bag is completely different. I have opted out of highlighers and mascara. I was sort of hoping for a nail polish this month instead of the blush, but overall I am happy with the bag.

  20. I’m really happy with my bag this month. The last 3 months, Ipsy has been hitting it out of the park. I’m getting:

    SLMISSGLAM
    E61 angled shadow brush

    IT COSMETICS
    confidence in a gel lotion moisturizer

    SUVA BEAUTY
    eyeshadow in coriander

    BUXOM COSMETICS
    big tease plumping mascara

    BIORACE
    pore purifying spirulina & tea tree clay mask

    BELIF
    moisturizing eye bomb (bought as an add-on)

    PAPA RECIPE
    bombee honey moisture cleansing foam (bought as an add-on)

  21. Wow, I am really, really happy with my bag this month! I am getting:

    Comelyco Blueberry & Peach Mask Set
    IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Gel Lotion Moisturizer
    Huda Beauty Lip Contour in Trophy Wife
    Space Case Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Intense Stargasm
    Nails Inc Nail Polish in Weekend Superpowers

    I added on the AHAVA Dead Sea body lotion.

    • That’s a great bag!!!

  22. My regular bag has

    SLMISSGLAM – angled shadow brush (so pretty!)

    COMELYCO blueberry and peach mask set (love sheet masks, this seems to be a K brand)

    IT cosmetics confidence in a gel lotion – YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY I was hoping for this!

    Suva Beauty eyeshadow in BBQ – looks kind of purple. I’m not a fan of single shadows tho

    Adesse – all day lip creme in Beverly Blvd. hahaha MY NAME SAKE in a lip color!

    Added on:
    Elizabeth Mott thank me later face primer (I love their eye primer so wanted to check this out), Belief eye bomb and the Coco Cabana cream!
    SO excited for both my regular and Plus picks this month! They really did nail it.

    • You’re my bag twin! I’m happy this month 😊

  23. I’ve been waiting and waiting all morning long I mean seriously since 5 this morning checking my email from my Ipsy reveal and I’m a Glam Bag member and guess what nothing’s and went back to my other email last month to see when it was sent and it was sent to me at 6:10 p.m. on July 2nd. I think I have good Cars 2 be upset. What can I do to resolve this situation from this not happening again

    • Go into your app. The reveals will be up and add on offers will be available. You don’t need the email. My email doesn’t show up till late in the day.

      • Did it..nothing…ugh

      • Good advice. I actually couldn’t get the add-ons page to load when I first revealed my bag this morning (approx 4:30 PST) — even by clicking the link to add-ons in the FAQ — so I loaded up the app & chose my add-ons there.

  24. *ELIZABETH MOTT Thank Me Later Face Primer
    *COMELYCO Blueberry & Peach Mask Set
    *PAPA RECIPE Bombee Honey Moisture Cleansing Foam
    *HUDA Beauty Lip Contour in Trophy Wife
    *THRIVE CAUSEMETICS Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara

    3/5 for me. The Huda Lip Contour and the Elizabeth Mott primer are misses for me. I’m super excited to try the mascara, I’m a mascara addict. And I love all things skincare so the masks and cleanser are wins.

  25. I’m super excited for all of my Ipsy products this month!

    • Me too!!! Would have made great Christmas gifts. Oh well, everything will have to be for me. Lol. :0)

    Youth to the People superfood cleanser
    Elizabeth Mott illuminating primer.

    Sad no Tidal, but I’m assuming it was all taken up by the lucky ones who got to choose a product! 🤷🏻‍♀️ I’m sure it’ll be back

  33. This is the absolute worst bag I’ve ever received from ipsy. Sooooo many products I was crossing my fingers for but I got a bag FULL of “rarely”! So incredibly disappointed, this isn’t personalized at ALL. There were at least six add-on items that I wanted, of course I could only order three, so I hope I at least get those this month. I’ve only ever received all of my add-ons one month since I first started subscribing. And Sunday Riley, which is the product I wanted the most, wasn’t offered. One more bag like this and I’m done with ipsy. What a waste.

    • After emailing ipsy about this, they offered to customize my bag more by letting me pick 2 products that I don’t want to receive and/or a one time choice of one product from a small selection of Septembers products. I am very happy with customer service right now, I usually am happy with that part. And I usually am happy with my bags, there’s usually 1 or 2 things I’m not super excited about but also usually at least a couple of things I love. I think my biggest disappointment this month wasn’t even so much what I got but what I *didn’t* get. There were just so many products that would’ve matched my preferences perfectly! So I don’t understand why they chose what they did. Anyway, I’m happy now. Thank you ipsy 😊 And my subscription addiction for all the info, reviews, spoilers, and giveaways 😊

    • Girl, I’m with ya!! I got nothing I was hoping for!

  34. I’m getting:

    Sunday Riley Tidal Cream (I chose this)

    Eyeko Madcara

    Wander Beauty Lift Off Mask (so happy about this! I wanted this bad)

    Suva Beauty Eyeshadow In Coriander

    Nails Inc. nail polish in feelings feelings

    My add ons:

    Belief Eye Bomb

    Youth To The People
    superfood cleanser

    Pretty happy with my bag this month

    • How are people choosing products to include in their bag?? I can only purchase add-ons.

      • A lot of people got option to choose 1 product to be in their bag. I didn’t get it last month but someone posted a link and I got ciate watermelon primer then I got option in confirmation email to take a survey that this was something I was interested in so this month it was offered on my app and I picked coco cabana cream . It shows up on app the 24th.

      • Hi Nicole. Some ipsters were able to choose one item for their bag. The option was sent via email 1 or 2 weeks ago. Not all ipsters had the option, it seems like a feature they’re testing out on a small scale before (hopefully) rolling out to everyone.

      • Ipsy is trying out something new where they email so many subscribers to choose a product for their glam bag. Not everyone will receive this email, I think right now it is in the trial stages. I didn’t get the email either which sucks, but I’m hoping it soon opens up for everyone to get to choose a product.

        • Thanks for the answer! I hope so too since I usually love ipsy but this month I got a bag full of products that I answered rarely to. And with so many amazing products offered this month, it’s such a disappointment to not even get one that I wanted. 🙁

          • Keep an eye on r/BeautyBoxes! I didn’t get the email, but I did get the option to choose once I opened the ipsy website (this was not the case for everyone). It was only live for a few hours, & that subreddit is pretty good at posting things like that as soon as they happen.

          • Same here. Ever since the “new” system went into place it seems like my, once amazing bags, have turned into bags of everything I say I don’t want with ONE product on my “often” list.. IDK what is going on over there but I’m about to cancel all together..

  35. Just curious does anyone else think their bag turns to poop once they started buying add-ons monthly?I used to love my bag every month! I haven’t had a good bag since I started religiously buying 3 add-ons a month.

    • I wonder if this is really true….I had a great bag for June and July! Put add-ons for July and now I have a meh bag for August 🙁 …i hope it doesnt continue, because im new to ipsy with my june bag and it was off to such a great start!

    • I’ve gotten good bags despite buying add-ons…until the past two months, when the new system of picking one item started to get rolled out. I’m guessing that since there’s only a limited number of variations anyway, in choosing one item you’re narrowing your potential bags down to a small handful. Think I’m going to skip picking an item for next month and see if my bag is any better.

  36. SLMISSGLAM
    E61 Angled Shadow Brush

    SUVA BEAUTY
    Eyeshadow in Coriander

    PAPA RECIPE
    Bombee Honey Moisture Cleansing Foam

    THRIVE CAUSEMETICS
    Liquid Lash Extensions Mascara™ in Brynn (Rich Black)

    SUNDAY RILEY
    Tidal Brightening Enzyme Water Cream

    The only item I’m not excited about is another neutral eyeshadow I have so many similar in color.

    I really hope I like the thrive mascara since IPSY but in my regular glam bag and my GBP. So I have the sample and full size now. 🤣

    • Wow! We got twin bags to the T. I’m also receiving the Thrive mascara in full size and travel size. I’m happy with my bag.👍😘

  37. My mom and I share the GBP and GB… we got

    Glam Bag Plus:

    TheBalm Palette – we both like it but mom’s getting it since I took the Huda palette and Naked Cosmetics eyeshadow last month

    Ahava Mask – she doesn’t like face masks and I love them, so its mine. My skin needs all the hydration it can get.

    Finding Ferdinand in Au Natural – I like the color but mom will probably take it since she likes bullet lipsticks and we never get them

    Suva Beauty – Neither of us really likes liquid highlighters, so I dont know

    Smith and Cult in Pillow Pie – I do my nails all the time so its mine, I’m excited about it!

    Add ons:

    I got the pixi by petra eyeliner and the touch in sol water cream

    Glam Bags:

    Eyeko Eyeliner – mom can have it, I don’t like liquid eyeliner

    Estate Cosmetics Highlighter in Lit – we’re probably going to fight over it

    Belief Eye Bomb – I really want it so hopefully mom doesn’t

    Wander Beauty Peel Off Mask – it’ll be mine, I’m excited to try it

    Nails Inc in Feelings Feelings – it’ll be mine but I already have a color exactly like this

    Add Ons:
    Mom got the foundation in medium, the farah brushes and the laura sanchez palette

  38. UGH why isnt my reveal and my add ons option up! It still says they are in ipsy match

    • Me too

      • Me too… this happens to me every month I feel discriminated on I know it sounds a little bit dramatic but do you know it’s really frustrating and not satisfactory I mean they charged us why can’t they just do the right thing I don’t understand because I they get our money what more could they want

    • That only happens when your payment first doesn’t go through. If that’s not the case, I would be emailing them.

      • Yeah my billing was fine my credit cards work just beautifully just happens every month I email them every month I Twitter them every month nothing changes its that’s why I’m frustrated and irate. However I have been reading some very nice self-help books that I’ve been referring to all morning to get me through this LOL

  39. I’m getting the blueberry and peach masks, the eyeko mascara, it cosmetics moisturizer, huda beauty pencil and Estate highlighter.

    In GBP I’m getting ahava mask, Finding Ferdinand lipstick, Suva glow drops, Smith and cult polish, thebalm palette

    Dont want the ahava, lipstick or the polish. If anyone wants to trade, email matzchristine at Yahoo dot com

    Have TONS of other stuff to trade as well 😊

  40. I’m getting:

    PAPA RECIPE Bombee Honey Moisture Cleansing Foam – Yay, I love trying new cleansers and K- beauty.

    HUDA BEAUTY Lip Contour in Trophy Wife – Cool, wanted to try this and mauve shade is perfect for me.

    NAILS INC Nail Polish in Feelings Feelings – I’m too lazy to do polish lately, but my mom will love it.

    ESTATE COSMETICS Eye Shade in Pipe – Don’t like the shade, but my sister will want it.

    BELIF Moisturizing Eye Bomb – I got to pick one thing on the app and this was it, just because I’m running low on eye cream.

    So 3/5 for me, but the other two will go to happy homes.

  41. Bag twins with MSA! That’s a first! But I have a 6th product included (Coco Cabana) I guess because of their mess up with add ons last month, when I emailed them saying I couldn’t see my bag or add ons they asked me which product from this month I liked and they would make sure to include it. So the purple peel off mask is one of the items I told them at that point & the coco cabana is what I choose in my selection option for this month. Can’t complain there!

    Also added on the It Bye Bye foundation because that’s what I always use and I actually just purchased a bottle from Ulta ($37 after a $5 off coupon) on Wednesday but haven’t opened it yet & this was only $12!!? So I’m going to return my one to Ulta & get this plus Thrive mascara & the 3 step face masks as Add Ons for almost $20 less than what I paid for just the foundation in Ulta! Also I absolutely love this bag. This dark green color is one of my favorites. Good month for me! I feel like all the subs are doing awesome this month (Ipsy, FFF, Ellie, I Love Jewelry Swagbag)!

  42. I’m receiving:

    The blueberry and peach masks
    IT cosmetics gel moisturizer
    Suva Beauty eyeshadow in coriander
    Adesse Lipcream in Thames Street
    Luxie eyeshadow brush

    Mostly happy! I have moisturizers marked as rarely, but I don’t mind trying this one. I’m SUPER pumped about the lipstick.

    I added on:
    Huda Mauve palette
    Blush brush

    I have been wanting that Huda!! And I’ve been needing a new blush brush. I’m happy!

    • I really like that Huda palette. I picked up the coral at the same time and got so into the mauve I haven’t even touched it, which is kind of silly of me seeing as the coral are probably better summer colors.😂

  43. I’m getting:
    -Eyeko Waterproof mascara – meh, normally don’t mind receiving mascara but I don’t like waterproof so this will be swapped.
    -color club nail polish in artsy crafty- I like this color and I like color club, but I’ve had their dark colors stain my nails before. So, mixed feelings.
    -apto green tea mask- this is fine, will be used.
    -Vasanti concealer buffer brush- normally don’t like receiving brushes but I actually think I could use this.
    -Sunday Riley Tidal Cream- my pick, excited to try.
    Overall this bag is okay. Certainly not the worst bag, and I’ll use 4/5 items and the fifth was so close that I’m not really mad. Insert shrug emoji here.

  44. I got elizabeth Mott primer, comelyco peach & blueberry masks, Luxie blending brush, thrive mascara, and feel squaline & facial oil. I added on it cosmetics foundation in light. Overall I’m very happy although I don’t use primer that much.

    • Do you think the foundation is full size or travel ?

      • It’s full size. 30ml

    • Bag twins!

      • Bag triplets!

  45. I really wanted the thrive mascara in my regular glam bag, but I’m getting the chance to try eyeko waterproof.
    I thought I would be able to see my glam bag plus, but not yet.. hopefully soon. I got the following products

    Pixi blush
    It cosmetics gel lotion moisturizer
    Eyeko waterproof mascara
    Estate eyeshadow
    The peach & blueberry face masks

  46. My Glam Bag:
    -Sol de Janeiro Coco Cabana Body Cream
    -Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later Face Primer (Matte)
    -Papa Recipe Bombee Honey Moisture Cleansing Foam
    -Adesse All Day Lip Creme (Beverly Blvd)
    -Luxie Beauty Brush 237 Blending Dreamcatcher

    Add-Ons:
    -It Cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation (Medium)
    -the BalmJour Creamy Lip Stain (Namaste!)
    -Ahava Dead Sea Water Mineral Body Lotion

    Kinda bummed I never got an opportunity to choose an item this month since the Sunday Riley ended up not being offered as an add-on, but pretty happy I was able to snag the It foundation and the BalmJour (really liked “Salut” that they sent me before).

  47. I’ll be getting:

    Eyeko Beach Waterproof Mascara – Woo-hoo! Another mascara! (I know, I’m a rare breed) I’m sure I already have this is my collection, but I don’t mind having another.

    Color Club Nail Polish in Nother But a Smile – Yay! I love that Ipsy is finally giving me some nail polish! I’ve had it marked as Often, but this is the first time they’ve sent me nail polish this year (and in my Ipsy+ too no less!). I really love the neutral color.

    Estate Cosmetics Dew Me Baked Highlighter in Lit – This is the only miss in my bag this month. This will only be the 2nd time this year I had a miss in my regular bag, so I’m not too bummed about this inclusion. This will be gifted.

    Wander Beauty Lift Off Purifying & Brightening Peel Off Mask – I think I got a full-size of this in my Boxycharm (or maybe it was a different Wander Beauty mask), but I don’t mind getting a sample to try. I love peel off masks, and the color of it makes it that much more enticing.

    Sunday Riley Tidal Cream – This was my sample pick. Even though I already have a good number of samples of this moisturizer in my collection, it’s always so hard for me to skip the opportunity to get yet another SR product in a sub box if I have the chance, so I naturally had to pick this. lol

    Overall, I really loved my bag again (despite the highlighter). I got yet another mascara, a nail polish for the first time this year (now they just need to start sending me fragrances which I also have marked as Often but have never received this year in both my regular bag or Ipsy+), a fun peel off mask to try, and a moisturizer that I’ve actually never tried, and despite already having a ton of samples waiting to be used, I always want more of (lol), so yay for a another good bag month!

    My add-ons were:

    IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation in Medium – My mom loves all of IT’s foundation/complexion products that she’s tried, so I thought I’d take advantage of this opportunity to either introduce her to this foundation if she hasn’t tried it yet or replenish her stock if she already has this.

    Sol de Janeiro Coco Cabana Body Cream (new formulation) – I actually liked the original scent of this as buttered popcorn was never a predominant note to me like with others when I smelled this, but I’m still looking forward to trying the new formulation which I heard is supposed to smell more coconutty with no more trace of the buttered popcorn smell.

    Belif Moisturizing Eye Bomb – I was torn between picking this or the Sunday Riley Tidal Cream as my sample pick for the regular bag, because I know I already have quite a few samples of that SR cream, and I don’t think any samples of this eye cream, but SR won out, and I was crossing my fingers that this eye cream would be an add-on. Yay!

    • How do you get a “sample pick”? I only get products chosen (randomly this month it seems) and the chance to purchase 3 add-ons. I REALLY wanted the Sunday Riley! But it wasn’t in my bag or offered as an add-on.

      • Ipsy’s been letting some people choose one product for their bags via an email they send them about one week before the bag reveal. I don’t know how they choose who can select an item, but they say it’s in a test phase right now to see if people like this option. I think they should just open it to everyone like how Birchbox does, because who wouldn’t want to pick at least one item to be in their bag?

        • I got the email to pick a product but I don’t like to outcome of this option, it totally messed up the rest of my bag customization. So this month I now have 4 products in my bag I won’t even use.

    • I’m another one who always enjoys getting mascara. I like being able to toss it when the expiration date is up and grabbing a new one.

  48. Ugh. I got rid of my regular ipsy bag when I upgraded to plus in October or November last year but liked some of the spoilers so I signed back up. I ended up with none of the skincare (which i love) and the bright red eyeshadow (I’m a cool toned neutral girl). What happened to my profile match??? Guess I better go check again…

    • I’m fair & cool-toned, and I love doing red eyeshadow! Try wearing a nude shade all over your lid, & just blending a little bit of red into your crease. It’s more subtle-looking than you’d think. I get compliments on this type of eye look a lot!

  49. I have had NO self control lately when it comes to getting subscription boxes in the mail. I just bought Popsugar, Box of Style, ipsy and the plus all in that few days I thought because I skipped the Fall FFF that I need all these. Help ME

    • I feel ya girl! I have 3 GBP and 3 regular Ipsy bags, 2 Boxycharm, 2 Boxyluxe, Sephora Play, and Beautyfix! I’m obsessed!

  50. SOL DE JANEIRO Coco Cabana Body Cream- I picked this.

    COLOR CLUB Nail Polish in Ghosted- Meh I don’t wear polish.

    INC.REDIBLE Jelly Shot Lip Quencher in Ex Revenge- I was hoping to get this!

    SUVA BEAUTY Eyeshadow in Coriander- Super meh boring color.

    HUDA BEAUTY Lip Contour in Trophy Wife- Good deal I have been wanting for awhile.

    So 3/5 not bad.
