  1. I always get up at 8 am eastern time and am able to get the add ons. So far have not had any issues and really like the selection they have to choose from. The other deal that they hav 2 for 5 have had issues with. Two months in a row they sent me incorrect items then said they were out of the ons I ordered. Usually issue a refund but really annoying when you expect to receive one thing but get something totally different. Last month was hair products I ordered and sent me masks instead

  2. Anyone willing to trade their Murad serum for a Nomad or Madison Miller Palette?

  3. I went a little crazy with my add ons – but I love to try new things – it’s cost about $50.00+ in add ons alone – hopefully when the Ipsy Glam Ultimate comes along in October for $50.00 I’ll spend less on add ons , 🤞 but I doubt that it’s really like an addiction , a rush lol this new GBU May be my on doing in this addiction 🙄

  4. I added on the 111skin eye gel, the babe lash serum and the farmacy sheet masks. Love my bag as well. Looking forward to receiving this in a few weeks 👏🏻

    • I added on 3 products for myself.. I added on the ofra madison miller.lip gloss Ry Ry… I added on the farmacy face masks and the briogeo leav in hair conditioner.. I’m not sure if I’m going to skip or get my box next month depends on my samples…

  5. I noticed something. I went to choose add ons and it used to be if you had both memberships you got to choose 3 for each membership. Now you only get two pick 5 period so you have one less if you have two memberships

    • I have two memberships and get to chose 10 add ons now. I have two separate accounts with separate emails but they’re both linked to me. I think because the mailing address and billing is exactly the same.

      • Natalie I don’t have two memberships. I have the Ipsy bag and glam plus on the same account and it only gave me 5.

      • I have both plus and regular and picked 5 for my regular bag and 2 for my plus. Would have added more to my plus but there wasn’t anything else I wanted.

    • I was able to pick 10 for both bags with same account

      Anyone have good recommendations for add ons ?


    • I have the Glam Bag and the GBP on the same account and was able to pick 5 add-ons for each (I ended up picking 4 each, 8 total) so maybe contact ipsycare? You should be able to get five per bag.

  6. Was FINALLY able to order add-ons.

  7. If someone wants to trade I got the Murad lol

    • I’m pretty sure everyone wants to swap for that, what are you looking for? Would love the Murad!

    • Yes, I want to swap! It’s my birthday month and I was so hoping for the serum!!!

  8. I can see my bag but still no option for add ons – looks like I won’t be adding anything 🙄

    • its the same for me too, i havent been able to access them through the link on the ipsy website either, im kind of annoyed

    • Its very unfair. They should fix it and give another day to shop but they will not do that.😞

    • I am not able to get the add ons either. The site hasn’t been working well today. Maybe they’ll fix it? Or else some of us miss out this month.

  9. I actually got the Murad and frankly I’m completely surprised!! Pleasantly surprised I might add. I have had a string of subpar boxes so it’s about dang time.

  10. If anyone wants to trade nomad eyeshadow palette for Glamglow please let me know

  11. Except the site and app has been down all day

  12. I’m really happy with my glam bag this month and I took advantage of the 5 add ons this month

    I’m getting

    Farah contour brush in midnight blue

    Skin & Co Roma Truffle Therapy Shimmering Oil

    Ofra x Madison Sweet Stuff Blush

    The Beauty Crop Eyeshadow in Halcyon

    Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask (I chose this)

    My Add Ons

    Smashbox Foundation in neutral (fair)

    Skyn Iceland Icelandic Youth Serum

    Hanhoo Watermelon Illuminator Overnight Serum

    It Cosmetics Confindence in a Cleanser

    111Skin Space Defence Bright Eye Lift Gel

  13. I went on my app it’s half working but no options for add on ?????

    Anyone know how I can addd on if there’s no option to do so 🙁

  14. I wanted the Nomad palette SO Bad and got the Madison miller palette instead 🙁 I’m REALLY BUMMED. Anyone want to trade pretty please?

    • I skipped this month but I got the Wandress palette a few months ago. If that is the one you want, I still have it put away unused nd I would like that Madison Miller palette.

      • PaulaC, I also received that wander palette so I don’t need that I was REALLY hoping to get the Berlin Underground. 🙁

      • I got the Berlin but looking to trade for Glamglow or murad

    • I got both nomad and miller :/ I’ll trade nomad for Glamglow if you got that let me know

      • I got both as well.

  15. The app says down for maintenance I can’t even add on :/

    Anyone else having this problem?

    • Me too. There were multiple bad gateway messages, and now a redirect to their Facebook page while down for maintenance. I haven’t even seen my bag yet.

      I’m not rewarding ipsy for a bad bag customization with addons anymore, but if i were, those Farmacy sheet masks were really good and calling to me again. I have very red, ruddy skin and the hydrating green one calmed my skin right down and took away the redness. There seems to be many repeats from previous bags in this month’s add-ons so far though. That yogurt mask is a repeat and was very weird on my skin. Yogurt masks should be calming but that one burned me after a few uses and the smell was just way too much.

    • Same. Site down for maintenance now I get sent directly to the glam bag page, no add ons in sight.

  16. I’m new to subs as of January, and I fairly quickly narrowed my choices to Ipsy and GBP. I skipped both this month to try to get product overload under control before the Ultimate gets added next month. I have been trying to get on the Ipsy site to check the daily flash sale and it has been crashed all morning. I was afraid of this, because they often have trouble handling ordinary traffic, and now the new 5-add-on policy “while supplies last.” How is Ipsy going to handle this for THREE bags next month?? I’m a huge Ipsy fan, but man, they need to upgrade/update their website server capacity. Seriously.

  17. I got the Hanhoo serum & the Haruharu moisturizer.

    The items I really would have loved to buy weren’t available as add-ons: Smashbox foundation in fair, IBY shadow in Fire & Ice, Beauty Crop shadow in Halo, & of course the Nomad Cosmetics palette.

    • Oh, & the Nature’s Cartel polish. I would have liked a crack at that, too.

    • I was able to get the smashbox foundation in fair as an add on

      • Ruuuuuude, Ipsy only gave me light & medium choices! (My profile says fair.)

      • Me too! My only options were light & medium. They have always sent me products in fair, so why did they suddenly think my skin color had changed? I wanted to try it so I went ahead and got the light. I will try it out around the house first and if I like it, I will use it with color correcting drops if the color is too dark. Shouldn’t need too much unless it has yellow undertones (like “It” does).

  18. I was worried I’d max out and get 5 things I don’t really neeedddd…. but I saw the babe lash so i got that and a hair mask thing. Next month I’ll splurge amd do 5 I think 😉
    I just gotta use up some stuff… love it. By GB isnt great but oh well ams the add ons are exciting. Love the hag too.

  19. I wasn’t impressed by any of the add-ons that were revealed in the Ipsy video yesterday; however, I was pleased with the selection this morning as well as my bag contents. I added on Coloured Raine eyeshadow in Glamour, FAB Coconut Water Cream, C’est Moi Beauty lip gloss in Opulence, 111Skin Bright Eye Lift Gel, and Milano Charcoal Setting Spray.

  20. Their site is down for me

  21. Ipsy do you even look at my profile???? Do not want a single item in my box this month 🙁 I am not even excited for the add-ons, usually that will at least make it worth it for me if the box sucks. They have so many great products why do I keep getting the ones I don’t want (which I make clear in my profile quiz)?

    • Still down 1:47pm.. I think an honor everybody who could not participate cuz we wouldn’t want to say it’s discrimination, they should honor us the customers with additional time and extend the add-on schedule

  22. The only add-on I got was the Madison Miller palette – which it appears they’ve sold out of. Glad they had it when I went looking this morning.

  23. And of course the site is down. I’m happy I was able to visit MSA to find out what the add one are because now I’m not irritated I can’t access Ipsy because I don’t really want any of them. Lol. Monday can carry on as normal now!

    • Now I don’t care if the site is down, I got most of these samples in my Sephora orders the past couple months and the colour-pop is not expensive at all on the website lol
      So I am canceling after being with Ipsy for years now

  24. I finally got to select my add ons and the page went down when I tried to place the order- so now I may not get anything. I usually like Ipsy GBP but this month I absolutely do not want a single item they are sending me and I’m too broke to pay for stuff I can’t use! ARG!

    • I got to choose two Items and it kick me out so I never got to finish my add on purchase and at this moment I cant seem to get in still and it’s even in my part the system is down or something I want my add ons

  25. Pretty annoyed with Ipsy this month. I logged in on the 31st to put a hold on my GBP but it said I had already been successfully billed for September. Now the website is down so I can’t see what is in my bag or do Addons. 😖

    • It shows you in their FAQ’s – you have to pause or cancel by Noon on the last day of the month.

  26. Placed my order and now cant get back on the site either

  27. I got my products ordered and it immediately shut down afterwards saying 504 gateway timeout

  28. 5 pick add ons! But did I need 5 more products…lol…
    I got the eye serum, sheet masks, watermelon sleep mask, verbena clay mask, the full size lash serum…
    I think I went overboard on the 🎭 masks

  29. Of course the one item most people wanted( Murad ) was not an add on. Not cool Ipsy. Woke up early on Labor Day for this disappointment.The sample size add ons are a much better than the full size options.

  30. Can’t even get on the site!

    • I went in to select my add-ons. Once I hit submit it timed out and now I can’t get on the site through the app or online. Who wants to bet once I can get back in my selections will be gone?

    • Most of the stuff is probably sold out anyway because so many are buying the add ons.

    • Same! I’ve been trying since 7AM – CST. I was able to select things, then as I went to click purchase it gave me a 502 error. >.<

    • Me either. Every month the site goes down at add-on time. I have never been able to get an add-on yet.

      • I start checking the Ipsy app at 5am (mountain time) and usually by 545am the add ons are up and the site is going strong. When I check again a few hours later the site is always down so I make sure on the second of every month to be up super early to get the add ons I want before the heavy traffic on the site shuts it down. I hope that helps

      • I meant central time lol no idea why I put mountain

      • Thank you so much. I will absolutely do that next month:)

  31. Really wanted the Murad……So I choose glamglowand bebe lash

  32. I love love love my glam bag this month and I took advantage of being able to get 5 add ons!

    I’m getting

    Farah contour brush in midnight blue

    Skin & Co. Roma Truffle Therapy Shimmering Oil

    Ofra Cosmestics Ofra x Madison Sweet Stuff Blush

    The Beauty Crop Eyeshadow in Halcyon

    Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask (I chose this)

    My add ons

    Smashbox Foundation in Neutral

    Skyn Iceland Icelandic Youth Serum

    Hanhoo Watermelon Illuminator Overnight Serum

    It Cosmetics Confindence in a Cleanser

    111Skin Space Defense Bright Eye Lift Gel

    I went heavy on skincare lol

  33. My selection this month was so good. I’m super stoked for my Glambag. For the add ons, I picked the GlamGlow Exfoliator, The Benefit Eyebrow tint in 3 because they put shade 2 in my box but i like the darker shade, the watermelon overnight serum, the charcoal setting spray, and the sheet masks.
    It’s great because I was able to get replacements for things I ran out of and use in my daily routine, along with some new stuff to try out for fun.

  34. Well the one and only thing I really wanted is not in either one of my boxes ( I have 2 subscriptions 1 for my daughter). It is also not in the add ons! Really wanted the Murad. Oh well, better luck next time.

  35. I added on the glamglow, farmacy masks and the luxie brush. Wish there was more options for the full size add-ons this time around.

  36. If I subscribe now, wll they let me choose add-ons?

    • I just signed up and it won’t let me purchase add ons.

      • I picked up the Coola Mineral Sunscreen(love their classic line but trying to find a mineral that doesnt make me look like Casper the Ghost), the Milani Charcoal Setting Spray( love the brand and really hoping this helps my oily face not look like a grease slick an hr after I apply makeup), Tarte Foundation(always looking for a great foundation), and the 111 eye gel(have used before and awesome…unfortunately cant afford full size!). All in all I thought add on selection was just ok. I got mine early before the site crashed and everything sold out so I’m happy.

  37. Great add ons this month. I added on both Ofra/Madison miller lip products since they are 6g of products and the full size is 8g. It’s a great price to get them for $3!! I also added the too faced mascara because I’m curious to try it. Plus the sheet masks and blending brush. Excited to see MSA glam bag plus reveal. I’m getting my favorite box yet.

    • This will be my 2nd box. Heard about free boxes how do I get them?

  38. Can’t believe this! I signed up to get 3 GBP boxes to increase my chances of getting the Murad serum. I literally got every product except for the serum! I got products that I was opted out of and every product I had marked rarely on. 😭

    • My September Glam bag plus was a complete fail,so was August’s as far as eyeshadow palette. Repeat and I can’t use the Ofra Madison Miller palette.

    • That kept happening to me, Ashley. I cancelled the lot.
      I’m better off buying from Ulta & Sephora’s 21 days sales and getting exactly what I want with no frustration.

    • I don’t think anyone got the Murad. I think that would be like finding the golden ticket in your chocolate bar…

      • I got the Murad. I would have liked to get the eyeshadow palette but I am happy with what I got.

    • The same for me every month. Highlighter pallet after highlighter pallet. I cancelled and they charged me again this month. Going to cancel my debit card if I have to
