It looks like you are really getting a good Plus bag, i would have liked to get that bag if i was subscribed to Plus! I love the Doucce Punk Mascara!, it is a good one!

Tiffany Schmidt



someone help lol. Im trying to decide if i want to go back to regular Ipsy or try Ipsy Plus. I honestly feel like the regular bag has way better products and more of them. i hate that the price went up but it was bound to happen eventually. so undecided on which one to do.


Honestly, i never upgraded because i like getting the 5 deluxe size samples in the regular bag and if i want add ons i can always purchase them. I would rather have deluxe sizes samples because if i dont like the product or shade, well it is just a sample but if i was to upgrade to Plus or Ultimate, i would be stuck with full size products that i dont like and wont use plus at the rate Ipsy is going with the products they are putting in the Plus and Ultimate, there is no way i would pay more than $12.00 for products i dont know for sure i will be getting. Hope this helps a little!


I agree! I even find that the smaller sizes last awhile as well. There’s also more of a variety in the samples. Thx for the input I think I’ll stay with the regular.

My sister and I share the glam bag and glam bag plus. Something I find massively disappointing is that Ipsy never truly does exciting colour cosmetics. Always neutral, pink, blah this or that. Even when they do shadow creations like Betty Boop- it’s just washed out or dullsville shades. Maybe you might get a dark green or blue occasionally. But the majority is just sad. Nothing vibrant or truly eye catching.
Something else not okay AT ALL- That even though you mark your skin type as dry/sensitive- they continue to send acne acids this or that and mud masques. Dude- harsh acids and Kaolin are the enemy of dry sensitive skin!

What a bummer! Never got the email, they basically said “oh well, check your spam? sorry it’s only open for 24 hours” checked spam/inbox, nothing… but don’t worry, they said I should be confident in their choices for me.. sending me lip glosses when it’s in my profile to never send those and sending out cheap brands. Might be my time to retire Ipsy Glam Plus 🙁


I am also not getting emails. I haven’t for 2 months now… So no choices and no add-ons for me.
Just a chain of 8 emails blaming me for
Maybe unsubscribing on accident or Not looking in my spam folder (not there).
They are “looking in to it” still.
Ironically I have gotten 2 emails trying to sell me the new ultimate bag.


The day we get to see what products we are getting in our bags and the offer for add ons are all in the same day, the 2nd of every month. You dont have to wait on a email! You can go to the Ipsy site, on the main page that shows the bag and products your getting, if it dont show your products or add ons, you can try logging off of your account and then logging back in or open the app in a different browser. You can also do this the day we get to choose a product and shop the flash sales. I have not been getting emails either but was told to try the logging off and on, and that has worked for me. The only emails that i have gotten is the confirmation of my choice for the following month and then if i purchase add ons, i will get a email.
Hope this helps a little!


Add-on emails come on the 2nd of the month. I don’t even wait for the email. I set a reminder/alarm on my calendar/phone. The $12 full-size add-ons are sometimes a great deal!


Sorry you didnt get to choose a product this month😯 I dont get the emails either but usually on the day we pick a product, my choices are already there on the main page, but this month they was not there, so i got on this site (MSA) and seen if the choices were open and they was but i still didnt have my choices on the site. Somebody on here said to log off of your account with Ipsy and then log back in, that is what i did and it worked! My choices were there on the main page like they was supposed to be. Also, i was told that you may need to use different browser to get on the website or incognito. Hope this helps a little!


GBP was killin it for a few months, but it looks like ultimate is taking all their attention now. I’m not interested at all in a $50 a month box, but I loved Plus. I might have to go back to boxy now.


This month looks that way! It seems like a majority of their higher end products are in the ultimate, and the plus only has a few products, which are not as diverse. Its saddening because there are quite a few items that I am interested in the ultimate, but do not need that many products, so I may not get either this month. It seems like they should just cross products between the plus and the ultimate so there are more choices. I know they dont do that so people can get both, but maybe it would be better.


I guess I got there late—all my choices were garbage I’d never want. I didn’t get an email either.


I chose the Illamasqua veil primer. Of the choices it was the one I’m most excited to try.


That wasn’t ever an option though? I’m confused lol


I think it became an option for people who chose later in the process. It was an option for me, and I logged in later in the day.


Just wondering if I’m the only person who never got a customization email from Ipsy? I get email alerts from MSA for Ipsy news, so I was able to get on my account and choose yesterday, but I’m concerned that I never heard specifically from Ipsy.


I emailed and was told that bc I paused my subscription for October, I’m still considered paused when the Choice email came out so I wasn’t able to choose for November. BS.


I paused October and still got to choose my November item.🤔

I do not see a way to make a choice on the website & I was not emailed directly from Ipsy. Who is allowed to make a selection?


Everybody gets to choose a product for every subscription you have with Ipsy, they dont always send emails, next month you may need to log out of your account and then log back in to see the choices available for you to pick a product. It will show up on the main paige on the app. That is what i had to do this month in order to get to choose a product for my November bag. Usually it is the 24th of every month but for some reason, it was the 23rd this month, just keep your eyes open at the end of the month around choice time. Hope this helps a little!


They send the emails out on the 23rd of each month. I missed it before and this was the first month I got in on it. The selection period is only 36 hours!! After that, the link they sent doesn’t work.


Nope, I have yet to receive a choice email… both months, I’ve needed to go to the site based on the info card or details from MSA.


Yesterday as soon as selection opened up, I had the Murad Acne Spot Treatment as a choice in my GBP, but I really could not decide bc nothing really appealed to me. I would have pounced on the eyeliner, but it wasn’t in my choices. I just made my selection today and Murad Spot was gone and I had the Belle en Argent lipstick and the ILLAMASQUA primer. So I chose the primer and in my regular GB, I chose the First Aid Cannabis oil.

I hope that maybe the eyeliner is already earmarked for me?

Thanks for the feedback on the Ciate stick, I almost chose that to give away as a stocking stuffer, but it sounds like it’s crap.


It was working for me until I logged out of my account. I have two emails association with ipsy so you have to be logged out for it to work.


I had a different selection of items available for GB Plus than what’s listed on this site. Do different people get access to different items for the selection (one custom item in your box)?


Cassandra, I got different options on different days and I never had the choice of the eyeliner. I hope that means it was already selected for me because of a high match. We will see! Also, I think by today, maybe the Murad Spot treatment sold out.


Thank you Mari! I hope you’re correct as I would love the eyeliner


I had different choices also


Skipped November GP Nothing really stuck out to me, so hopefully December will be a good one


Just a heads up, i had received the Ciate Dewy Glow stick in my Allure box two months ago and when i went to open the lid to the glow stick,the product came completely out and was stuck in the lid, i could not get it out without destroying the whole product. Hopefully that doesn’t happen to nobody but just letting people know that may happen. Of course i didnt get to try the product and waiting on my replacement now., so i dont know how the Ciate Dewy Stick highlighter is, but i was looking forward to trying it.


I actually really like the Ciate stick – it works with my minimal makeup routine – but the amount of product you get is TINY. I would definitely not pay full price for it.


Yeah, i was really wanting to try it out, i was excited to get it in my Allure box. Hopefully my replacement gets here soon so i can see what i think about it, but you are right, just by looking at the product in the lid, i could tell there really is not that much there, i wont pay full price for it either.


Mine came off with the lid also but then it fell out and I was able to put it back into the tube with a little pressure and it works fine now.


There was no way of getting the product out of mine, i tried everything i could think of to get it out, it was stuck on the very top of the lid, i even put a bobby pin in the product and tried pulling it down from the lid but it didnt come out, all i could get out was what was on the bobby pin.Ugh! I was getting really frustrated with it and gave up, then called Allure, lol I am glad you got yours fixed and you can use it, i was really wanting to try it!


looks like some pretty decent choice for U this month. too bad P is still terrible. i am glad they stepped up their game for U even though I would never pay $50 for a monthly box. I’d rather take my $ to sephora to get something I really want. I hope they won’t skim out on P to make U more attractive.


“I hope they won’t skim out on P to make U more attractive.” This is my fear. I can’t afford a $50 a month box. I really hope Plus continues to have a good selection of products, but based on October and November I’m having doubts.


In my choice confirmation email (for regular GB, I think) there was a quiz option about choice. I specifically called out the fact that the choices for Plus appear to have gone downhill to sustain GBU, due to complaints on their iffy launch. (Complaints were 100% warranted! Not contesting that at all..) Made the point that loyal GBP subscribers should not feel unvalued or like they need to be the squeaky wheel to ensure they receive a decent quality product.

It may not matter if a few say it, but at least now I know that THEY know we see the dysfunctional business strategy… and can make the appropriate choice to cancel if GBP continues to degrade in efforts to push people to GBU.


I agree. I’m spending the $27 at Sephora this month instead. They have a great 50% off sale happening now.


I chose the Ciate eyeliner stamp because nothing really appealed too me. So I figured I’d get something unusual and not Gigi. I wish Ipsy would stop these Collaborations.


I got the Ciate star stamp liner in regular GB a few months ago, it was a full size one. I would be so mad if I get another one for GBP.


The Ciate liner is so so good. It’s black as night, doesn’t bleed at all and stays put. I don’t know about the stamp side, but the liner is incredible.


I went with the Belle et Argent lipstick.

Hopefully I won’t get much from the Gigi collection.


Weird, that wasn’t an option for me.


Wasn’t an option for me, either.


It wasn’t for me this morning, but when I got home after work it was.

I don’t know if it was because of the different browsers or if something else ran out.

I had kind of a rough morning so I wasn’t paying close attention.


I chose the Murad lotion for my son. The acne line works well for him. The serephine blush palette was a choice for me. I was surprised as it seems like the most popular item and I just chose a few minutes ago. Might skip yet though when I see other spoilers. I don’t want any part of that Gigi collar and I fear everyone is going to get something from that collab.


Hi, someone else received as one of the choices Illamasqua hydra veil primer? Who knows this product? It’s good?


That’s my favorite primer! It’s really hydrating.


That was one of my choices (I finally saw an Ipsy email at 2:15pm EST–I thought the customizing began at 9:00am EST??). I didn’t know anything about the product and have received quite a number of primers from Ipsy in recent months so I went with the Seraphine blush palette.


No, I would have chosen that. I’ve read lots of good things both here on MSA and other sites.


Well I paused my account for the first time ever! I’ve been with Ipsy for years, but nothing is speaking to me in Plus or Ultimate. I’m thinking of pausing my regular bag as well. Saved me $75! With the Sephora sale next month I’d rather get things I know I want or need with that money. 20% off for rouge is a better choice for me.


I picked Murad lotion but thinking about skipping Nov. I don’t see anything I would like to try. Gigi bronzer duo actually looks nice compared to other choices for me, I was thinking about pick that one instead Murad lotion. Ipsy should giveaway Gigi brush with any Gigi makeup for GBP. I might actually like that.


So wierd my was different!! I would of picked the spot treatment but wasn’t an option!! I had the llmq. (Spelt wrong) hydra primer!!! I choose that for sure!! I had it for a sample and loved it but don’t know why mine was different!!


Skipped, skipped, canceled. Sorry ipsy, you’re just falling flat lately.

Ashley C

I didn’t pick anything surprisingly…nothing really called to me. So hopefully they pick a good box for me! 🙂 I did pick the lip balm for my regular Ipsy bag.


SO happy Seraphine was a choice. It’s one of my favorite blushes. I chose that and the FAB oat and cannabis oil in my regular bag. Canceled my spot in line for Boxy Premium because I was in it for the blush palette. Maybe next month!


I chose the Seraphine Botanicals blush palette too and I’m so excited for it! I’m probably going to cancel my spot on the BoxyCharm Premium list too because I was doing it for the ND blush palette as well. I chose the Hola Neon tinted lip balm for my regular bag but was very tempted by the First Aid Beauty cannabis oil and dry oat serum too


We totally have the same taste LOL. I had a hard time choosing between the Hola Neon and the FAB. I ultimately chose the FAB because a couple of the reviews mentioned redness reduction. I have suffered from rosacea for 7 or 8 years now. The breakouts have been under control for at least a year now, but I have broken capillaries on my cheeks and chin that I keep hoping something besides laser therapy will help.

I also almost added on the travel iron set and Purlisse duo as backups!


I picked the Murad spot treatment as it is a product that my husband loves so I will pass it along to him. He would love that moisturizer too.

I don’t need another black eyeliner,that Dewy stick from Ciate is straight up Vaseline, I don’t use bronzer and I don’t think that I need that much blush.


I’m disappointed in all the options…
