  1. Why is everyone hating on betty?! Betty Boop is such a huge iconic animated makeup/fashion icon! And how do y’all not see this being relative to halloween?! Betty Boops high contrast black and white look is perfect for the season! Cute bag. Im personally thrilled with the last few bags and hope Ipsy keeps it up 👏🏼

  2. are spoilers for GB revealed yet beyond the bag? I already skipped Oct GBP not excited about betty boop at all. Now I need to decide if I should skip GB also. I just want to see the contents of the bag.

  3. I’ll be skipping a month for the first time ever. No BB for me, thank you.

  4. It would be nice to have a bag selection too. Maybe each month having three or four choices to chose from, especially months like these when some people want Halloween themed bags and others don’t. I, personally, would love a Halloween bag with witches, ghosts, pumpkins, etc., but I realize there are other people who wouldn’t want that. This way it would be a win win for everybody!

  5. My mom loves Betty Boop so I want to rejoin for October so I can snag this bag. If I do so right now will I get the September bag as well…. any advice??

    • If i was you, i would email IpsyCare and ask them about it, i would just tell them that you want to start recieving Ipsy again but you dont want to start until October and dont want September’s bag. Ipsycare can probably set it up for you or at least tell you how to sign back up without being billed for September and recieving this months bag. I hope this helps Nicole! BTW, my sister’s name is Nicole and she spells it just like you do!😊

  6. I love the Betty Boop Bag! Hope it comes in the Ultimate sub too

    • I know that they said that all three sub would have the same theme, i am pretty sure they will all be the same or close to it, just bigger bags.

    • Me too! I want Betty Boop on all the bags.

      I never paid much attention to her until these bags!

  7. I was planning on skipping next month, but when I saw this bag I immediately was overwhelmed, my mom passed away in 2013 and she was addicted to Betty Boop and owned a plethora of her stuff, so I’m not skipping even if it’s just for the bag… 💕

  8. Is this much of the subscriber base over 50 that so many here are excited about this (imo very NOPE) bag? Or is it the commenters here that skew older?

    • I’m in my 30s and love the bag. Why do you assume folks have to be old to enjoy something like this?

      • Same 30s here too,my mom loves boop and I think she’s cute

      • I’m 31 and absolutely love this bag! I’m not sure why age would factor into whether or not you like this bag or Betty Boop

    • Well, bless your heart, sugar. I’m in my mid 40’s and I have never felt better about myself than I do at this ripe old age. One day you’re twenty something and before you know it, 50 will be creeping up on you too.

      • “I was also raised to do the best you can to not judge others. I’m not perfect! Neither is my life…” Dawna earlier.

      • I’ll be 60 in November! Each day is a blessing. Everyone, enjoy each of your days. You never know when it will be your last! Enjoy your subscription surprises!

      • So so true I have lost so many 💔💔 make everyday count !!!! Enjoy each day , enjoy your family and friends , and feel beautiful from the inside out. I look at my mom and think , I hope I’m beautiful like her when I get older ❤️🥰

      • That is so sweet!, what you said about wanting to be as beautiful as your mom when you get older. I feel like that with my momma also, she is my rock, unfortunately she was diagnosed with Altimezers 4 years ago and struggles everyday with it, it has taught me to never take anything or anybody for granted because you never know what the future will have in stall for that person, like my mom. She is a beautiful women that all my life has been told that me and her look like sisters, instead of mother and daughter. Show your mom that you love and appreciate her everyday!☺❤

    • Such a discriminating statement . Why ???

    • HAY! I’m 51 and don’t like this bag!!! lol

    • Betty Boop was created in 1930. God are you limited in scope of understanding…..if you are 50 years old today, that means Betty Boop was already 40 years old the very day you were born. Betty is ICONIC and timeless unlike the crap that is created today. Time waits for no one honey, including YOU…..but don’t worry, you’ll be 50 before you know it, just like everyone else! God bless!

      • 👏👏👏 Amen! 😉🤣

      • I am loving this thread! Doesn’t matter your age, size, style, appearance, abilities, gender, socioeconomic status, those who join Ipsy LOVE BEAUTY PRODUCTS! 🙂 we ALL HAVE THIS IN COMMON GUYS!!! Let’s celebrate it!

  9. I though it was going to be a pink shimmery bag that Ipsy had posted on IG not to long ago that also matches the new Plus bag and the new Ultimate bag subscriptions? I personally liked those better

  10. Really cute bag! I wouldn’t have minded a Halloween bag🎃 but I see other people would have. Impossible to make everyone happy.

  11. Did they get rid of Ipsy offers??? Ipsy Shop has been and still is unavailable. I sent an email, nothing. I have inquired on social media, nothing….

    • Just checked and it’s still up and working. I was having trouble with the app a few days ago and I had to uninstall/reinstall it and that fixed all the problems. You might want to try that.

      • I think it was their system. I didn’t do anything on my end, but it’s up and working now. I just wondered because they never said anything on Facebook and the only thing about their site that wasn’t working for me was the Ipsy shopper section.

    • Its back up now.

    • It’s back up. It was down since the Sept 2nd site crash

      • Thank you

      • Did that include email? I have not gotten a response in 3 days from Ipsycare.

      • They responded to me twice

  12. Ok… A few years back, Ipsy DID DO A HALLOWEEN BAG!!! It did not go over too well with everybody. I am “One of those people” that did not like it simply because of my core beliefs. So, I simply did not keep it. It is THAT simple. There have been other bags that I’ve given away just because it wasn’t pretty or useful to me. I don’t understand why it seems everybody thinks Ipsy needs to celebrate Halloween but not any other “holiday “???
    Ipsy has to come up with a Glambag and theme for each of the 12 months year after year and we still are never happy??? I wish I could remember who said it best about the Halloween bag with the Ouija board on it…. If the bag offends you, THROW IT AWAY!!!!

  13. how cute ! I love betty

  14. FYI: Ipsy has confirmed that all 3 bags in GB, GBP, & GBU will all have matching themes each month.

    • Oh wow thanks for info though

  15. My grandmother was a huge BB fan and collector so seeing this spoiler brings out allll the nostalgia!!! I’m going to have to buy a bunch of mystery bags to gift to all of the aunts and cousins❤️

    • It seems as though a lot of people here would be happy to send you their bag for free haha

  16. I might be the odd one out, but I am hoping for matching bags in different sizes for the tiers of bags. Love Boop and to have a Mini and Medium sized one would be fab. I haven’t signed up for Ultimate but I am curious to see the spoilers start rolling in!

    • Just simply by watching and reading, it looks like all of the Glambags will be similar, just different sizes.

      • Thanks!

  17. I was going to resub to get a halloween bag, but meh. Not that impressed by the character, and its not Halloween at all.

  18. I love love love this bag!! Betty Book is Adorable!!!!

  19. Now see, I’m praying all three bags are same design different sizes. I have tons of mixed matched bags and would love to have a few matching sets. I signed up for the Ultimate just to snag a few months of all three bags then I’ll be quitting the regular and plus probably and just keeping Ultimate every two months.

  20. Totally panicked by the bag. I think it’s cute, love it. However Betty Boop’s makeup is black eyeliner and red lipstick. Typically the makeup goes with the bag theme.

    If Ipsy gives me another black eyeliner and red lipstick combo then I am done with all three tiers.

    How do you opt out of a category? Do you email them and say no eyeliner or is there a place on the app? I have my profile set correctly they just don’t care.

    Because that bag screams Eyeko liquid eyeliner.

    • You’ll have to email them to opt out of a category.

    • Support at Ipsy.com
      Just email them and opt out of eyeliners and whatever else ya want
      Two categories max
      Hope that helps

    • Thanks! I emailed them. I’m not sure that it will always work but I tried. So on overload of red and orange lipsticks and black eyeliner. I swear Cruella DeVille is curating some of my bags.

      • I wish i would just get at least one red lipstick, they always send me the lightest colors that dont look good on me. I have told them that i like darker colors like red or even brown, i have been with Ipsy for a year and a half and have never recieved a lipstick color that i like, it is always pink or some crazy color like purple.

  21. If it has sequins on it then I will love it!

    That would make it totally adorable!

    I am now wanting to see the GMU bag!

  22. I LOVE this bag!! I will be thrilled if I get 3 bags with this theme!! For the value of what we are getting Ipsy is knocking it out of the park!! It is a shame that so many people are unhappy 😞. As for the rainbows 🌈 I love rainbows and what they stand for; both meanings! 😁

    • Same here! Even though I was raised Baptist, I was also raised to do the best you can to not judge others. I’m not perfect! Neither is my life… The only thing disappointing to me about the rainbow theme in June was that each bag was a different color when I was hoping for a rainbow bag. 😂

  23. Is anyone else having a hard time getting a response back from Ipsycare? I emailed them over 24 hours ago and still nothing.

    • Yes It took 24 hours to get back to me and I opted out of eyeshadow palette and all they offered me was 600 points wth? 😡😡

      Guess it’s better then the $3.00 off the guy offered the first time , if I don’t like there first response I always email back for second opinion

      • I hear you. I got a lipstick I was opted out of. At least they offered you something. All I got was, “Oh well!”

      • Ashley I would start a new email to get a second rep to help , that’s what I did . Can’t hurt I wouldn’t take “ oh well” for an answer of a category I was opted out of. Good luck 🤞

      • The “Oh well “ response is not an acceptable response. I have had this happen as well. Screen shot that, start a new email with ipsycare and let them know. They usually offer to send a consolation item, extra points, pick an item for next month…

      • I usually don’t have any problems. I will email them again and see what happens. Thank you, Dot and Sarah!

      • Just keep emailing Ipsy Care until a representative actually helps you and i do know that if you rate there response at the bottom of the email, marking poor and then telling your experience with that Ipsy representative saying, “Oh Well”, than somebody will email you back to help you. That is what i have to do, hope this helps you! I wouldn’t take the “Oh Well” for a answer!😊

      • Sherri, they won’t even respond to me anymore. It’s been well over 24 hours and they aren’t responding to me on any of my accounts. I am not sure what to do about it.

      • I’ve had that happen. I start an entirely new email and then fill the new person in on what’s going on.

      • Have you tried using Twitter to contact IpsyCare yet or just the emails? If they dont respond to me, i try contacting them through there social media. I usually send Ipsy Care a direct message on Twitter, now sometimes it may take a day or two for them to message me back on Twitter, but they do get back to me. I am not understanding why they are not emailing you back, i emailed them a question Tuesday and they got back to me yesterday. I wish they had a number you could call to actually speak to Customer Service, i think they are the only sub that dont have a phone number for Customer Service. But yeah, if you have not tried social media yet, i would try that and see if they will respond back to you.

    • Yes, in fact, it’s been almost 48 hours for me. Still no response.

      • Try contacting IpsyCare through social media, i contact them through Twitter sometimes and it may take a couple of days but they always get back to me!

      • Thanks, Sherri!

      • Your Welcome Kenley!😊

  24. Oh my god I hate it.

  25. I love it! I agree that it’s not a Fall themed bag, but I still love it! Maybe they will do a more Fall theme for November?
    I can completely understand why they didn’t do a Halloween themed bag though. The last time they did, they caught A LOT of flack over it. They got lash back on what was on the bag and then continued to get some over the fact that they did a Halloween bag but not a Christmas, Easter, 4th Of July, etc. themed bags. Some people didn’t like it when they had a rainbow theme in June. Some are not happy about the astrological theme… They can’t please everybody. I think they are trying to stay “holiday neutral” ??? There have been bags I didn’t like. I just give them away.

    • Seriously? People got bent about rainbows and cauldrons? Vampire teeth? A mask? Was it too risque or what? I mean, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised…

      • Everybody is wired differently and that’s ok. Everybody is entitled to their religious beliefs as well. I was not happy about the one Halloween bag mainly because of the Ouija board. I did not pitch a fit with Ipsy. I simply just did not keep the bag. To each their own. Everybody complains about something…

      • That’s the thing though…it doesn’t have to be a big issue. If I don’t like a bag, I pass it on to someone else who will like it or skip that month. I’m not going to take the fun away for other people if it doesn’t follow my particular principles.

  26. OMG…too cute!

  27. You bet! Something with bats or skulls would have been fabulous! With a bone for a pull tab!
