STOP IT WITH THE NO-NAME COLABS! The Ofra colab at least was made by a recognizable and reputable company, but the Tetris, Boop, now this look like cheap Chinese garbage!

Debbie

You go girl!

Boxy Fox

Yuck.

Sung

Where’s Nov spoilers? I saw Gigi gorgeous on Youtube showing her makeup collab with IPSY. I think Nov GBP, GBU will be great. Ipsy is going to make up for GBU failure to launch this month.

Debbie

I love your optimism! Made me smile.

Chloe

They need to make ALL THREE bags really good in November! You really think that Ipsy is going to be better in November? 😂

Sung

Hell yes! Boxycharm trying to take over next month with that premium launch. I’m pretty sure Ipsy ain’t going to just sit there and watching. Ipsy already failed this month with GBU. I think Nov will be very interesting for both IPSY & Boxycharm.
OMG…. Who do you work for? who send you? lol

Shashina Brooks

I love this bag design too!! Betty Boop bag design is so cute!! I think Ipsy is stepping up into the right direction. Hopefully, their December design will be just as lit as this month’s and next month’s.

Annie

Is this sarcasm? lol

Debbie

Ipsy, is that you?

liina

I don’t like animal print, but for those that like this pattern, the large case looks practical! I only get the regular bag, but I think it would be neat to have a full set of a pattern you enjoy.

Dawna

No offense to her, but I’m not a Barbie doll. Most women don’t… I looked on Instagram and I don’t see anything special Or new about what’s shown. I ended up with the Betty Boop eyeshadow brush, and honestly, it’s SO cheap! The paint is chipping off, the brush is frayed and it was not cut properly to begin with. It’s an absolute joke and an insult to Betty Boop. I’m guessing This is going to be a bunch of cheap 💩 with some overhyped Instagramers name all over it. I’m pretty close to being done with the swap site here too. Some people think their stuff is golden but they’re just samples! People still have stuff from 3 years ago still available for swaps, including expired products but won’t swap unless it’s $50 or more or unless they feel they are getting a better deal when it’s just crap you don’t want? Lol! Ok punkin, you hold onto that face moisturizer from 3 years ago and swear it’s worth it’s retail value plus your time and shipping.

January Six

LOL so true. Honestly I hate the Ipsy made products. I hated the Tetris collection, the Betty Boop collection is trash, but I did like one of the lipsticks however, I’m sure every future Ipsy made collection will be junk too. Its like they found a cheap product line in the factories of downtown los angeles and slapped their logos on it. They need to stick to makeup brands both known and Indie brands and not their own stuff. That is one reason I favor Boxycharm over Ipsy now.

Laura

Per an article on US : Collab with Gigi and it shows the November bags.
November Ipsy will include:the four that have been teased include a sparkly pink lip gloss and a contour brush, as well as a bronzer and blush duo.
Launching on November 1, everything will be available for Ipsy’s November Glam Bags and available to purchase online until November 31.

Sung

Awesome. Thank you for sharing that information.

Kenley

Where are the spoilers for November?? We don’t have any information about any of the bags next month! Very odd!

Sarah

The only thing I have seen so far is on instagram and I heard about it here somewhere. Apparently some collaboration with Gigi Gorgeous. That’s all I’ve seen.

Ashley

They waited so long to release spoilers last month for GBU and it was a total 💩 shoot. I just wonder if they are taking their time to make November an awesome month or just holding off because it’s going to be another nightmare and want to keep people from cancelling or pausing.

Jody Grabowski

I just got my October Ultimate and it is terrible. I thought the the bag would be bigger than the regular glam bag. There was an extra product included and I don’t know why (the bag maybe?), but I still only see it as including six full size items. I think they are counting things as full size such as lip balm and a couple of masks. I don’t care for that because those are pretty normal offerings in the regular GB. I really thought it was awful just based on what was included and then I opened it and saw how small everything was. It’s hard to believe what you get in a Boxyluxe for $50.00 compared to this. I think Ipsy really messed up. I had already canceled after seeing my reveal.

Kayla

Ok, but now were almost halfway through the month and we don’t have product spoilers? 🙁

Annie

I’m waiting for this month’s Ultimate review.

Debbie

Me too and hope it’s super honest. If not then I’m done with MSA too.

Alice

Me, too.

Sarah

What?! That’s crazy!

Joann Borget

That’s is such a good idea. I have been reading this and all you beauty lovers have such good hearts.
I am new to this ,and look forward to that swapping site. What is that waiting list?
Thanks Joann

DESIREE M HERNANDEZ

i bought the ultimate box , it was a complete waste of money . the one shadow single came in broken and a mess all over the inner box (trashed) . the huda pallette has the most aweful unusable shades i have ever seen ,it truly looks like clown make up . the only thing i am using is the murad face wash and lip gloss ..

JennR

Definitely put your Huda palette on the swap site! I love the shadow formulas and am hoping to swap for any of the palettes that were in GBU this month. I’d jump at the chance to swap for one!

amy

I got the warm brown Huda palette and I hate it! There is not a shade I can use. They are all too dark.

I am livid at Ipsy and I cancelled the GBPL and GBU. They flat out lied and sent out that hideous mascara to compensate? I already have one and it is impossibly bulky to use.

Courtney s

Do you have to put the huda palette so bad? I like it and think it does not look like clown makeup plus it looks good on me.

Charlie

Ugh. Cheap and tacky!

Lorraine

I hate next months bag. Not a fan of animal print. I was really hoping for a cute fall themed bag since we didn’t get a Halloween one for October.

Iris

Absolutely LOVE the bags!

Annie

Was anyone else who was offered a free November Ultimate bag to make up for the October bag ghosted by Ipsy upon accepting their offer? It’s been 4 days, and they still haven’t confirmed with me or reinstated my account. I feel ghosted.

Ashley

As long as you have the email, they have to honor it.

Annie

I do have the email, I guess I’ll sit and wait until Nov 1..they might be waiting around to make sure I can’t redeem my points. If so, then not a good tactic to use on someone who already feels let down by them.

Ashley

The last time I received a bag for free it showed up in my account that I would get it for free. It’s not saying that even though they told me they would comp November’s GBU. Now, I’m worried because they have also ghosted me after telling me they would comp me next month.

Annie

Don’t they know we all talk about how they’re treatiing us? SMH

julie

I was offered nothing, not even points, and pretty sure I have to pay to send my ultimate bag back for refund after they told me it was too late to cancel even though I asked to cancel well in advance of them mailing it out. I hope they make it up to you and keep their word but I also actually believed they would make it right to their subscribers that got conned into believing that for double the money they would deliver GBP full size products and not lip balms.

Debbie

I was offered nothing as well:( so in response I cancelled all three bags. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.

kimi

Email and ask to speak with a supervisor. I was comped the Nov bag after going back and fourth with them. My box just arrived. To be honest it looks worse than I expected. I really do not have grand expectations on the Nov bag. I am sure they are going to have to make up money on all of their comps. They should have been up front about this bag from the start.

Dawna

This isn’t right. I agree with everybody else. Ipsy needs to compensate you. Please don’t give up. Keep pushing.

Annie

Julie, I am so sorry to hear of your experience. They’re losing too much business over this to treat anyone that way. Word does get around, doesn’t matter how much they try to ignore us. That’s why I’m making sure as many people know what’s happening. They can ignore me all they want, future customers are listening. That’s how I see it. Keep at em. I almost gave up, but was encouraged not to (Hey Sherri :)) until I get a response I’m just going to keep emailing.

Sharon Moore

I would email them again. To let them know. They said in mine they can’t refund but would comp November

Lori

I personally have seen some of the spoilers for the collab collection and both the products and the packaging look beautiful! I also love what she stands for as a person and what the makeup line is to stand for(its to be for people of all gender identities). On a side note, in the article in Stylecaster about this they list the price of Ipsy Ultimate Subscription as $37. Perhaps they know something we dont and the price is decreasing.

Kenley

Maybe they are just going to stick with full size products in the future. Only have 8 full size for $37. I would say they are trying to compete with Boxycharm’s Premium box.

amyr

They need to do something. I chewed them out…..and they banned my IP because my friend got wasted and was cursing them in reviews for his box from my house! He was livid especially over a freaking lip balm as a full size item.

🤣🤣🤣

Annie

How can you tell if they banned your IP? I’m wondering if that’s why I’m feeling ghosted by them

Kat

Leopard for November? Ewww!

amyr

I am so not looking forward to yet another collaboration. I want name brands not Tetris, Betty Boop (which I do like somewhat), Madison Miller and Gigi Gorgeous. I am sure that Madison and Gigi are nice women but I want full sizes and higher end products in a GBU. A lip balm is considered full size? SMH.

Dawna

I got the Betty Boop eyeshadow brush and it’s so pathetic. Elf has better brushes. The red paint is already chipping off, the brush itself was not cut properly in the first place and it’s a bit frayed too. No response from Ipsy.

Sam

I need real spoilers because these bags are ugly!

Diana

I was thinking about starting my plus box back in November but with the new collaboration I think I will wait until December and hope I dont get many of them in my regular bag. Love the bag, not liking the new collab.

Leia Ali

Ahhh, I guess it’s really random then, I was wondering if they’d use FEDEX for Ultimate but apparently not! I’ll just have to be patient this month with DHL lol. Thanks for the info!

Liz

I love the bags as animal prints has always been a favorite of mine even before it has become the hot style now. I haven’t received my GB or GBU yet but did receive my GBP today and am happy with everything so far from packaging so far and love the lip glosses as I’ve purchased this brand in past. I wasn’t wowed by the GBU items from photos maybe like others since Ipsy has done such an amazing job in past with other bags I expected more but I don’t think it’s a horrible deal and have faith they will step it up.

KatKat

who cares about the bag design, i want to know the stuff we will be getting! I skipped Sept and Oct. hoping Nov will be a good one!

Dot

I agree show me what’s inside 👍

Zai

Did you saw that the products are a collab wit Gigi Gorgeous?

amyr

A lip gloss, bronzer duo and a makeup brush. I like the packaging.
