Ok I’m so confused. I just Started my subscription for the first time and picked Glam bag ultimate plus Glam Bag plus and Glam bag (I think as it was a bit confusing). I guess I am on a waitlist? I’m so confused. How long does it take to be billed? Is it in fact $50? As I chose to do PayPal and I have to make sure I have the money in PayPal and I put the $50 in. Also when will I get my first bag. Also I keep seeing people say they chose a product. I was never given that option. So again I am so confused. Could use some help understanding what I signed up for. Thank you


If you got all three options it’s $50+$25+$12. You had to choose your item by a certain date which was in September.


All of that, plus your states sales tax, if applicable. You can login and see when your bag ships. I usually get mine mid month.


The Madison Miller one was blush and highlight. This one is just blush, and you don’t have to pick it haha.

Hi! I’m an actual Ipsy Glam Bag Plus subscriber but I’m a little confused. Can I customize my box or it’s only for first-time subscribers? I don’t see any options to do that in the Ipsy site. Sorry if this is a dumb question


I was one of the few who got to “test” this. It’s always been on the 24th of the month and starts at 8 am. Hope that helps for you next one 🙂

I believe that starting in October, so this is the first one, Glam Bag Plus Members can pick one of the five full size products in their box. The rest is still customized based on your Beauty Profile. Example, I picked the Dr Brandt Age Defying Micro Dermabrasion stuff. i’m old lol. Starting tomorrow they customize the rest of my box, and on the 2nd of the month you can see all 5 Products. Also, the 2nd starting at 9 am EST you can pick up to 5 Add ons now, which are of course extra cost wise. I’m hoping for a good one!!


Customization was only available for 24 hours I believe


I’m glad they have the pause option. Boxy needs to get on board


Can anyone tell me if you unpause (apparently, I was on the every other month option(head scratch) if they automatically bill you like if it’s a new subscription, or if they charge you at the end of the month?


When I have adjusted frequency or unpaused they billed on regular billing cycle.

Brandi Riedford

Is this all the spoilers we are going to get?? I’m concerned because this is only my second box. I was very happy with my first box but I received the nomad and Ofra cheek Pallete, I certainly don’t need more this month.


If you happen to get products you know you won’t use, you can donate, sell, or save for future gifts for Christmas or bdays! I usually start saving for Christmas gifts in September 😁


I skipped October Plus, kept Original. Might add on a few things if they appeal and the price is right. Hope November is better.


I’m an annual subscriber to the regular GB. Ipsy sent me an email inviting me to sign up for Plus and/or Ultimate. Well, this morning I decided to add the Plus. Ipsy then tells me that I’m on a waitlist and they are not sure when I will be activated. What??!! I replied that IPSY invited me to join! I’ve not yet received another reply from them. I want to cancel Plus now, but there is no option to do so unless it’s active. GAH!!!


When I signed up for plus last month it said the same thing. I think I signed up halfway through the month. But then when it came time to charge me Sept 1st it switched over to the plus.


If you email them, they will cancel it. It’s silly that they don’t give you the option. I had to do this yesterday and they took care of it right away!

I am so insanely tempted to sign up for the ultimate since i dropped boxycharm for charging me every month but never sending anything. Did anyone here sign up?? Might wait to see if everyone has a good experience. Can’t take anymore disappointment lol but I’m not usually upset about my ipsy goodies and they don’t scam me ever Like boxycharm. Even allure recently began just refunding my account immediately after charging me instead of sending a box what is going on. I feel blacklisted 😂😂🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️


Hey Candace🙋🏽‍♀️, make sure you get every last cent girl! No worries though, I am in the same boat, just peeking 👀 to see if I take the plunge! 👩🏽‍💻 Even though my beauty closet, an extra room on it’s own, is full of stuff I still have in boxes, lmao!🤷🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️ No wonder why we are seen as the spoiled kids of the world…😀😁😆😂🤣…No judging please, engineer here, so I pay my fair share, lol! 👩🏽‍🏫👩🏽‍🎓🤦🏽‍♀️ Just love being a girl!💃


None of these appeal to me. Glad I skipped this month. Crossing my fingers November’s choices are better.


I picked the Purlisse serum and am thrilled with that choice. Somehow I missed it when it was in Ipsy offers and my skin loves anything Purlisse. I am really hoping to get the Glossier cleanser from the spoilers too. I skipped the regular bag but I’m hoping I can add on the mauve Betty Boop lipstick.


Ok why are these options all better than the ultimate? What’s going on Ipsy?!


Agreed! I had a hard time deciding!


Ultimate had choices from Farmacy and Murad, so I’m not sure I’d classify these options as “better”….

Betsy Wetsy

What am I doing wrong? I thought we had an option to choose the Betty Boop palette, but the only palettes I have the option to choose are the real her or the huda beauty ones, along with some farrah brushes or the facial cleanser. I have upgraded to the Ultimate so i have no clue what I’m doing wrong…. any ideas? Thanks <3

Sherry Fralic

I’m hoping it means that we’re getting all of the Betty Boop items and the customization is just the extra item that


I had that option this morning. I wonder if they already had too many picky it?


Oh, oops, just saw you were ultimate instead of plus.


Each tier of glam bag received a different set of options. I’d be willing to bet the Ultimate will include multiple items from the BB collab.

Betsy Wetsy

So even though I am a GBU member, I am unable to choose the BB palette, right?


Does anybody know what’s the difference in the packaging for the blue Purlisse serum? When checking online, it’s supposed to be a pump bottle and this one on Ipsy is a tube? Just questioning the expiration for this as this could be old stock?
Appreciate any info.


It looks like new packaging on Ipsy. They are both 1 oz. I’m excited for this one since I do really enjoy the Blue Lotus moisturizer line. The matcha antioxidant primer is also one of my favs


I love everything by Purlisse but unfortunately three months ago I had allergic reaction to the blue lotus seed moisturizer and cleanser. My face totally swelled up and I’ve never had this happen to me before ever but anyways I still use other products by them but I had to discontinue the blue lotus series


On their website it looked like the tube is just a smaller amount (deluxe sample?) vs the full size pump.


The tube is a 1 oz full size, I checked, there are some listed on ebay and the likes.
The Purlisse web site shows the pump, so not sure which one is the latest packaging.


I’m personally not into Betty Boop but these items I’ve chosen anyway in hopes of receiving more. They will make great Christmas presents to my young teen granddaughters.


I just unpaused since I was able to choose Purlisse 🙂 I’m giddy about it! I was torn between that and the Jules lip gloss duo – but who knows? Maybe I’ll end up getting that, too 🙂


If you unpause, do they charge you right away or at the end of the month? apparently I had mine set to receive one every other month. no idea how that happened. and it’s saying I’ll get charged 25. but does the charge come now or at the end of the month like they usually do? thanks!


Cancelled boxy and skipped this month for Ipsy. Really disappointed in the products and the one item of choice selections.


I was torn between the Purlisse Serum and the Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion. I went with the Dr. Brandt because it was more expensive, I am really hoping to get the serum in my box since I have serums on “often” but if not, I will pay the $12 to add-on if possible.


The Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion is a very good exfoliator. If your skin is sensitive, just be a little gentle with the application.
I like his entire line, except for the ___ No More products. They don’t seem to deliver for me.


I agree! The Dr Brandt is my second favorite exfoliant right under Good Genes. My skin just loves lactic acid! Was so glad it was a choice here, I like to rotate those two products.


I chose the eyeshadow palette because I love palettes. I am intrigued by the Jules Smith lip duo, though, since I only know their jewelry.


I picked:

Glam bag: Private Doctor: Define Minus Serum
GBP: Dr Brant exfoliant
Ultimate: Murad cleanser

I’m really happy! I am hoping for the Huda brown palette and Purlisse brightening serum to be included in my bags!

Good luck everyone!


Am I the only one who is keeping her subscription this month because she wants the bags?I love Betty Boop, and I am excited about all versions of the bag, I couldn’t care less about the spoilers and ended up picking whatever (the CC cream for regular and the lotus primer for Plus)…

Dani G.

That’s my main reason for ordering all 3. Although I did also want to compare what I get with Plus to what I get with Ultimate. But I even got a second regular Ipsy bag so I could send one to my sister. I can’t believe all 3 will be the same. It seems ridiculous to send that tiny little bag with the full size boxes. I am not a happy camper right now. I may need to do some cancellations today.


Alice is correct. All 3 tiers will receive the same bags this month. Next month they will start with size variations

whitney harley

I got an email from ipsy 2 days ago saying the bag will be the same for Ultimate and plus so theyre sending me a free mascara with Ultimate this first month.


The bags will be identical.


I subscribe to Ipsy JUST for Purlisse! Really! It’s my fave and so expensive! So to be able to choose the serum means I don’t have to pay $12 to add it on later! Yippppeee! The rest will be gravy!


I was soooo torn between the Purlisse and the Boop palette. I opted for the palette in the end because I wanted to control what Boop item I would get.


Same here, as I didn’t like any of the other BB options. Though it’s looking like my Plus or Ultimate or both are going this month unless better spoilers are released asap!

whitney harley

I did the same. Hopefully if we choose the Betty boop items then we’ll get higher end items customized for us


Very smart strategy. I wish I had thought of that before I picked.


For GB, got the dual ended brush. For the GBP, got the Purlisse lightening serum. Glad I didn’t go with the Ultimate. I didn’t want any of the options. Will have to wait and see if I get any Boop products


Skipped and zero FOMO


I JUST received that Purlisse serum as part of an Ipsy bundle. I think I paid $16 for that, 2 Glamglow bubble masks (will be trading), and three other generously sized samples.

I was a bit
underwhelmed by the choices, but I picked the Dr Brandt because it’s an easy to swap item. I picked the Seraphine primer for my regular bag


Dangit, I bought that same bundle but haven’t started using anything so I forgot about the serum and I chose that item. Oh well, now I have a spare and I do love the product.


Yea I almost picked it to have a backup but I have SO many brightening serums to get through. None of the items were jumping out at me ( I already have the Lovecraft and TIS product) so I just went with what I know will swap easily. I might end up skipping this month because I spent too much on random 1 time boxes this month. It’ll depend on spoilers I suppose


After much debate I picked the Lotus serum. Not just because I do believe it’s the most expensive of the bunch but it also had positive reviews. Almost went with the exfoliator but with my sensitive skin and I don’t know how that would have worked. I had a hard time deciding because I thought the pallets were beautiful as well. I’m just sorry that there’s some people who can never be happy no matter what the choices are. For 25 bucks a month I am so excited. And we get a makeup at again yay!


Skipped GBP and GBU glad I did because choices for customization seem underwhelming and not into BB theme , stuck with regular and picked serum , money saved and I’m okay with that . The BC add ons were a true joke of left overs more money saved . I’m just holding out for Ipsy add ons with regular bag 🙂


The MM was 2 highlighters and a blush. This one is three different brushes. You can’t tell me you only have one shade of blush that you use. And you also can’t fault Ipsy for what boxycharm had a couple of months ago, I mean come on. What does the one have to do with the other? How people cannot be happy with these offers is completely beyond me. The serum is worth like 60 bucks and the scrub is worth around 45 and that’s just what I looked up. Nothing makes you happy huh?


Exactly and the scrub is 79 actually!
