Did anyone notice the metallic teal blue bag on the top of the choice page for this month? I love it! I hope it’s an upcoming bag!


I just subscribed to Ipsy glam bag and I downloaded the App so my ??? Is how do I pick my 1 item? All I see is October’s picks. Ty

You won’t get a choice this month. You’ll be able to choose for your December bag. Watch MSA for alerts.

Gwendylon Martin

Thank you 😊


Has anybody else noticed that the rewards points items available have not changed or sold out for quite some time???
I know a lot of people were “compensated” with 800 points for the October fiasco. Instead of handling the issues??? I did not have the same issues but it still took until yesterday to get much of any response from Ipsy regarding repeat items in my Glambags. I really had to look closely at any subscriptions I’ve had to make sure, but, yes, that is the same exact mascara. CS argued with me about this even though I sent screenshots of my past GlamBags. I asked that the emails be sent to a supervisor and got ghosted yet again.
I started 3 new emails and only got a response to one. Generic corporate responses along with what almost seems like a nice little lecture as well because I mentioned the increase of the price of rewards points items. “All Ipsy subscribers should be thankful that Ipsy still offers this free perk. I have just added 600 points to your account. I hope this helps. Thanks for being a loyal subscriber.”
No mention of the repeated mascara or the fact that my Glambag did not match my profile in any way. The only thing that did was an add on. Everything else is a complete waste for me. Sorry to say it, but, it’s true.
A couple of years back, there were so many cry babies complaining about “never having items available to redeem points for & boo hoo!!! Now I have points expiring!” I know I’m not the only one that didn’t have problems. I actually enjoyed the rewards points program. Ipsy’s response to all of that was to raise the points cost of rewards items and they have continued to get higher and higher. 600 points for a “chapstick”?! Those were 100 points exactly 3 years ago??? Now they’ve raised the prices so high, nobody that has only one subscription with them can afford more than one item per year, two if we are lucky. Yes, I know I can throw my link around online and hope someone uses it so I get the points, but I’m not doing that.
Ipsy is definitely making some serious money these days and getting pretty greedy, in my opinion.


For anybody looking for ideas on ways to use all those Glambags:
1: I have my makeup sorted in them by category and in the order I use them.
2: I need a bag partially ready to go at all times. Each bag has a category, one bag has skincare (sometimes 2 bags, morning & bedtime), another has medication, one has haircare, shower supplies, makeup, makeup brushes & tools.
Even though I give some away, I keep my favorites but still have Glambags I don’t care about.
3: Vacation Time: recently went on a beach anniversary vacation. I used a cheap plastic zip loc style bag from another sub to put shells in but it soon filled up. I did take a couple of extra Ipsy Glambags just in case. I had planned on picking up shells for my grandniece & her new stepsister. I did but I wish I had thought to take more Glambags. Why? Because I could have taken a Glambag to the beach every day and not have to dump my days catch into a large ziplock bag. I actually saw a couple of other people with Glambags on the beach. I really wish I had taken more bags that I don’t like or care about. I would have given some away to children picking up shells.
I only carried a purse when out to dinner & there is a Glambag in it. The rest Of the time, I carried a sling pack with a couple of Glambags or just a Glambag with a few items I need to have at all times.
I filled the biggest Glambag I had with me with items from the hotel. Tampons, wipes, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, comb, Kleenex & a protein bar. Sure enough, on the trip back home, someone in a rest stop restroom needed it.
So, going on a trip or vacation? They really help sort stuff. This is just a few things…


This is great! I love these tips and use a lot of the bags I keep too. I now feel weird at the thought of things loose in my purse or drawers. Everything has a pouch! 🙂


I cannot see the nov choice page. My page stuck in oct. What should I do?


Mine too….would love an answer!!

Your Friends @MSA

Have you tried reaching out to Ipsy Care? They should be able to help troubleshoot for you.

Elle Em

I’m having the same problem! 🙁


I chose the Verson serum. Hope to get the lip balm in my bag as well.


Choices kinda suck in my opinion. I chose the hair mask because it’s one of my favorites and I want at least one product that actually matches me this next month.


Someone recommended first aid beauty on this site for my skin so i picked and I’m excited to try it out!


I think that was me! It saved my skin. I haven’t tried this particular one, but I picked it as my choice. If you can get your hands on the ultra repair face wash, ultra repair cream and the ultra repair serum- I recommend it! I hope you like the oil and that it works super well for you


Definitely going to keep that in mind! Thanks so much


I really wanted to choose this, but every time I choose a skin care item I get a horrible bag, so I chose the foundation in hopes of getting a better bag and if it’s an option will add on the oil.

Tanya M.

Verso Serum sample in the regular $12 glam bag? Who are you Ipsy? Lovin’ it. Breaking up is so hard to do.


I thought I had cancelled my GBU but I was able to make a choice and it said my last glam bag ultimate would be this month.

Has this happened to anybody else?


Does anyone know if I subscribe today for the regular glam bag if I will get October or November? I don’t care for the October spoilers and would like the option of picking my item. Thanks!


I resubbed on Sunday for November, but unfortunately I’m receiving October as well. I think they have overstock this month and still sending out October bags.


That’s what I was worried about! Thanks for letting me know. I hope you at least get a few things you like!


I believe you would get November! I tried signing up for the September bag late in the month last month and was notified after that my first bag would be the October bag. Email customer service if you would like to know for sure!


Thanks! I definitely will!


You will receive October glam bag


I subbed to the GBU and I have the same question.

I did not get to select any choices so I am hoping I can get the Dec bag. I want to avoid any Gigi choices.


Oh, that’s a bummer! I hope you get the December bag!


I chose the Murad sunscreen. The regular glam bag has the best options by far this month IMHO!


I thought so too!


Such a nice box, has a hard time to choose my product, because I want them all.


I picked the FAB oil. I’ve been wanting to try it.


Ditto on the FAB oil as at least it is utterly different than any other option.

I am not vested in this $10 box so I am fine even if it’s a relatively mediocre box like the October one. Unlike others, I really like the actual bag and use it to store glasses as the “eyes” remind me 🙂


Same. I like the other FAB products I have and I’ve wanted to try the oil. I was debating between the Murad and the oil but I choose the Murad lotion for gbp so I figured I’d switch it up a bit.


I really hope some of these are included in the add-ons! I actually had a very hard time choosing between the MAC and First Aid Beauty products. I went with the MAC because I’m almost out of my regular cleansing oil but I’ll buy the FAB oil for sure if it’s an add-on.

I’m actually overall very delighted by these choices! Last month’s offerings with underwhelming but this month was great for me.


I think some of them will be!


I grabbed the Murad sunscreen. Was tempted by the MAC cleansing oil, but it’s super tiny, only 0.2 ounce.

Steph H.

I was hoping the Murad would be a little bit bigger. I chose it because my skin loves Murad products but it is only 0.33 oz. I’m just spoiled by the deluxe cleanser sizes 😂


I chose the violet voss for my ultimate they are send free for the makeup of this months crappy box. For my two glam bags I chose the pixi eyeshadow and the murad moisturizer

Christa H.

Skipped, skipped, and skipped again…🙄


I went with the Murad Essential-C Moisturizer. The sample size items are very generous and this will be perfect to take with me, when I go on vacation in the Spring. I also chose the full size Murad lotion for my Glam Plus.

Toni Marie

I decided not to pick and will.let ipsy products hopefully if will go good.


Same — whenever I’ve picked in the past, the other four items didn’t match my profile.


Same here! Someone had commented a while back that they thought that when you pick an item it automatically gives you a specific entire bag, not utilizing your profile at all. Which Ipsy has not indicated otherwise, their wording on it actually seems like this could be true. So I skipped picking in hopes it will go entirely by my profile this time.

tammy g.

I got the verso, and the first aid oil..i have 2 accounts.thanks ipsy, looks good this month.


I picked the bb cream/foundation- loving having a choice!


Same. Very happy to have a choice, and it might change my opinion in that I was going to cancel after my sub was up this January but now I will reevaluate since there were so many nice options this time.

Interesting issue for me; I am on an annual subscription and skipped October and later wrote to ipsy to ask if that meant that I would not be able to choose my product for November. Ipsy CS confirmed that I would not be able to choose my product because I skipped a month and would not be active on the pick day. Today, I did not receive any email from them but logged in anyways and was able to choose my product. I don’t think their CS knows what’s going on with all of their subscription changes. My account settings showed that I was only paused for a month but I had to email them to ask for it since I never had the pause button available like some people said they did.


Cool I didn’t know we could pause with an annual sub! I was wondering if asking was all it took. I’ve never wanted to pause though so far.

I must be really picky because I didn’t want any of the choices today or last month. The problem for me is that the makeup is too warm, and there are only a few makeup choices. I would have love that balm in a cooler color like pink, berry or red. Nudes make me look sick. I have specific skin care needs and lots of products for that I already love, and most of this is skin care. I really enjoy their makeup: lipstick, blush, bronzer, highlighter, gloss, lip and eyeliner etc, brushes & tools, hand cream, body cream, body scrub, exfoliant, lip balm, lip scrub, powder, nail polish, fragrance. Really everything except warm/nude makeup and skin care. But it sounds like most others are happy with these small skin care samples.


I think there are a lot of great choices but I went ahead and skipped this month last week because I’m on product overload and would rather use the money to build up my winter wardrobe than the stash in my drawers. Not regretting that yet.


I dropped down from Plus to the regular bag this month. I went with the FAB oil for my choice because I love this brand and have a lot of redness in my skin. Looking forward to add-ons.
