I was really not happy with either of my Ultimate bags.

They had already sent me 2 of the things.

I am dropping Ultimate. They just do not seem to have the merchandise to rotate.

Candace wattson

Has anyone purchased a November mystery bag that can maybe spoil the mystery for me ?? Lol I decided to downgrade to Ipsy plus from ultimately and just purchase older mystery bags with it to treat myself it’s cheaper and more likely to get a better variety of what I actually want instead of always getting crap I don’t want or use wasting my money month after month is getting old

Sherri

The monthly mystery bags are just extra bags that they have on hand for a given month’s bag. So you’ll get some combination of the items that were offered for that month, but there’s no way to know which, and any one mystery bag may be different than another from that same month.

Dawna

Can I please get feedback on the INCREDIBLE jelly shot lip quencher in Ex Revenge? It’s the clear lip balm with a yellow flower in it that is shaped like lipstick. Didn’t get it in any GlamBags. Thinking of redeeming points for it… All feedback welcome. Thanks.

amyr

It isn’t worth it. The sample is incredibly tiny and made my lips drier.

They aren’t even that cute IRL.

fetchingmommy

I got two of the INC. Redible Jelly Shot Lip Quenchers a couple months back in my Glam Bags. I used one and noticed this horribly bitter disgusting scent/taste so I tossed it figuring it had gone bad. I then tried the second only to have the same thing happen. I’m not certain they are all like this but I never want to use one again.

Sarah

Wow. Please take a look at the rewards points items and all of the add on options. Is it just me, or did they take some stuff off the rewards points items list and put them on the add on list?

Lynda

What’s your point?

Sherri

I think the point she is trying to make is (Correct me, if i am wrong Sarah) that products that we get basically free are showing up as add ons, that we have to actually pay for! Plus, usually the rewards points products are items that are left overs from past bags. Plus some of the Rewards points products are in this months Ultimate bag, that really dont look to good on Ipsy’s part since it is products that are left over, being put in a $50.00 bag. That is the point she was making!😊

Sherri

Yeah, Ipsy did just that plus some of the products in the Ultimate bag came from the rewards points.

Tiffany Schmidt

ADD ONS AND PRODUCT REVEALS ARE LIVE!!!

Aj

I’m giving ipsy another month to step up with the ultimate. I don’t mind collabs as long as their good that’s not even the issue. It’s when they give you 1 single eyeshadow and say ok that’s a full size then give 2 sheet mask and be yep that’s another one. Do they really think we forgot that we’ve been getting those kinda items in our glam bags forever? If that’s the case we should just drop Ultimate and go back to what we were doing before . Ipsy plus was kicking outta the park for months but they can’t get their ultimate to do anything but flop . All I know is if November ultimate is another box of failure I’m losing ultimate. Not gonna keep paying 50 for nothing .

Tiff

Love how they’re being very careful not to release too many spoilers too soon this month. Probably in fear of even more customers canceling or pausing before billing. If they don’t start releasing spoilers soon I’m pausing again for this month in the next couple of days just to be on the safe side bc I’d bet my last dime the GBP and GBU boxes will probably be crap again.

Julie

I HATE the collabs! I wish IPSY would stop with this nonsense! I don’t mind getting indie brands – I’ve found some good stuff over time, and I like supporting new entrepreneurs, but the collabs have got to stop! Who the heck wants Betty Boop or Tetris Makeup? Maybe a teenager born in 1930 or 1980, but that’s it! It’s a waste of my money and I’m finding more and more of the items I receive going into the donate pile.

Beth

I was born in 1978 and I am not a fan of Betty Boop so slow your roll! If you don’t like the silly bag or what comes in it…..CANCEL……..

Erica Johnson

Okay. I will say that I love the bags and for the ultimate.. It’s about time. It looks like a great size bag!

Eas

I have ultimate subscription, for my october box, i was so disappointed. Most of my items was small in size. The only part that i like was my pick and add ons, which is annoying. I didn’t get an $18 make up bag that they were advertising.

I did give them a feedback but never heaRd back.

I hope i will get a better box in november. Obviously from what I am seeing now, it’s meh!
🤦‍♀️

Carla

NO more collabs Ipsy. I want more well known brands ad prestige items in boxes.

Rona

So glad I read the comments. I was about to join..glad I passed!!

Linda

I was missing a add on in my Ultimate. I emailed them tonight. I had ordered TheBalm What the tea pallet. Missing. I really wanted that, hope they send it. Or at least refund my $12.

I added up all my stuff I received in my Ultimate box and it came to $256.00
That is giving the BB blush pallet a $5.00 value.
Those sheet masks sell for $1.99 each. The lip gloss is on sale now at target for $5.59. I don’t think those should count toward a full size item. But they did.
I did get some nice things. Huda Pallet, Farmacy Green Clean, purlisse season matcha green tea primer, The Biorace serum, and the f.a.r.a.h Brushes. Oh and that perfume. I like it!
Buying subscription boxes is like playing the lottery. Only we win more with the boxes.
I did cancel all my Ipsy boxes for a while. I have such a huge stash now that I’m going to work on using it.
I’m getting rid of all my beauty boxes and instead I’m going to sub to some other kinds of boxes for a while.

Crystal

This collab looks interesting. I don’t hate the collabs. Personally I don’t always have to have expensive or big name brand products to be satisfied. I am very easy to please. The ugly bag is my problem, I was wanting to skip even just the regular bag but if this is the collab and items we will have to look forward to I don’t think I can skip. I really need more spoilers. Guess I will have to wait.

Tammy Berry

I wonder if Ultimate was so bad because ipsy was getting ready for Ipsy Live’s creator bags? It seems like those were pretty full of products, and I’m sure they didn’t get crap products and leftover samples 🙄 No problem with creators or creators getting loads of stuff, at all; but I do wonder since ipsy Live was only a week after I got my bag — and there sure wasn’t anything as good as Youth to the Peopl or Ofra in Ultimate 🙄

Debbie

Oooh IPSY, Boxycharm premium is coming for you! Let’s see, collab crap or Natasha Denona? Hmmmm…. decisions, decisions. 😹

V

Currently, Ipsy is offering 1800 points per referral and you can redeem 1800 points for the 111SKIN Vitamin C Brightening Serum. Finally, a worthwhile points redemption. I can’t wait to receive mine!

Thanks!

They are offer 1800 for referrals because so many subscribers have left.

Sung

I’m getting little tired of seeing these negative comments. I just got my Oct GBP this week. Honestly, BB bag is cute. I don’t even like BB. I’ll def use it. I haven’t try out BB blush palette yet but I love everything else in the box so far. I don’t mind Gigi next month, I only get 1 of her makeup whether I like it or not. Makeup bag is like bonus to me. But people want to complain getting extra stuff or pretty much everthing. I don’t get it. My Oct GBP value over $200 and my BC value over $150 with Tarte palette this month. I spent total $46 about $50 with tax and I’ve got over $350 value of items from GBP & BC. I’m happy with both. Can’t wait for Nov.

Tanya

I agree. Ipsy is never going to send high end luxury brands. Ever. Accept that and find a new sub.

Kim

Yeah. I mean it’s not like people purchased a bag because it’s worth so much and supposed to have so many full size products. I mean, they should just accept whatever ipsy decides is good enough for them. Who cares if they feel like they were cheated or ipsy was dishonest?

I do. Unlike you, I am not willing to just hand someone $50 and receive dishonest customer service, or partial fullfillment. Thank you to the people who complain. The complaints have shown me that ipsy does this kind of thing regularly. Once they screw someone, they seem to repeat it and not care to provide better service. They seem to believe there will always be churn and they’ll be okay.

In the meantinm, when I spoke to ipsycare after receiving a broken item, I was basically told that my money paid for the membership to the site and they weren’t obligated to anything. I caught that and called them out on it. I asked them to confirm and provide documentation of this. They ignored it and offered me a refund for the item. They offered me choice for the month they rolled it out like it was bonus! They never clarified their policy.

So here’s my opinion, I don’t do business with ipsy because they don’t handle their business with professionalism. They seem to treat some subs better than others and they do not have a consistent policy that they apply accross the board. There are just more HONEST businesses I can do business with.

Amanda

Thank you, all of these negative comments make everyone sound so spoiled, like they spent $50 so now they deserve 7,000 dollars worth of stuff. It’s almost sickening, you’re subscribed to Ipsy to try new things, not get super high end brands, which you may get once in a while but not all the time.

Beth

So with you guys. I don’t get it. If you don’t like anything your getting or it doesn’t have a huge resale value or you don’t like Betty Boop……CANCE….400 comments and 350 are people hating on everything.

Alice

This^^^ *couldn’t agree more. My Plus bag stunk. The BB shadows are a horrible formula for me and I got that trio of LC bronzer that are so dark…definitely not following my fair skinned profile. As for BC, I’m a new subscriber…they did not send my new subscriber gift nor did they follow my profile. I got red lip liner…don’t use red or liners, and the brow gel is for a dark brunette…I’m a natural golden blonde. The lip gloss is also in the wrong shade. So, I’m supposed to grin and accept it?! I have every right to my opinion, which, this time, happens to be negative.

Sherri

You got a gift for subscribing? I didnt know they were doing that now!, i have been a member of Ipsy for about a year and a half now and i know i didn’t get a gift when i subscribed and i have not heard of anybody getting a reward just points for products, but if you were supposed to be getting a gift from them i would email IpsyCare and tell them that you didnt get it. I dont know if you know where to go on the Ipsy site to email them but if you need help let me know and i will try to explain where to go on the website. Sorry this was your first bag and it sucked! Ipsy’s personalization for me has always been off but i have also got some really good products from this subs. Honestly i am still deciding what to do with this subscription, the only reason i have stayed was because we can buy add ons every month and they have been letting me pick a product for the last several months, now everybody can pick a product for there bag. I also emailed IpsyCare over and over about the products i was getting and not getting, you just have to make sure to keep emailing until you get your problem resolved. I also agree with you on being able to comment how you want, poistive or negative. I am not going to smile and act like everything is fine when Ipsy has burnt me and alot of people, i will voice my opinion how i want and if people dont like it, than they dont have to read it! 😊

Jackie

Love this 🙂

Jen Graham

I’ve already received October’s ipsy bag but they haven’t even bothered to ship out my glam bag yet for October. I’m going away for my anniversary in three weeks and need the items… 🙁 Anyone know when the glam bag (box) ships?

fetchingmommy

I don’t think Kim was trying to be rude about the whole situation but rather was upset that Ipsy didn’t just replace her broken item from the beginning and gave her the run around. This would upset me as well seeing as I’ve read about them sending replacement products for damaged/missing items without any hesitation to other subscribers.

Alice

Mine is still in transit.

Redhed36

Both my Plus and Ultimate are still in transit. My ultimate sat at “EN ROUTE TO DHL ECOMMERCE DISTRIBUTION CENTER” for four days!! LOL They must have drove to a DHL half way across the country. Plus was traveling to distribution center for two days.

Shelly

It actually IS a collab. Here is an article about it:

https://www.goodmorningamerica.com/style/story/gigi-gorgeous-announces-genderless-makeup-collection-66211207

That said, I’m willing to try it. All brands were once new and indie and starting out… it might be great. It’s fun to get new brands. The reason I like sub boxes is because I get to try things I probably wouldn’t otherwise and I don’t have to spend much to do it. Do I love everything in every box? Of course not but if I like 1 or 2 things, the box is paid for and I can give away what I don’t like. People complain so much about sub boxes. I just don’t understand it.

Dawna

Thank you for posting this article. All some of us had to go on were YouTube videos. It takes a lot to put yourself out there to begin with, but I can’t imagine what it’s like for someone who is transgender, period. A very close friend of mine had a daughter but not anymore. It’s a pretty hard thing on parents as well. Thankfully, these parents are incredibly supportive. It’s a progressive world we live in and I’m glad there are more and more role models for everybody.
All that being said, I’m still not thrilled with the makeup I’m seeing. I’m so done with the swapping too. So, anything I get from Ipsy that I don’t want will be offered to my girls, if they don’t want it, then it will be donated.

Debbie

Thanks for helping us be informed!

Annie

I asked Ipsy if this was a product collab or a product launch. Their response –

“Hey there! The GiGi Gorgeous products are an exclusive collaboration with IPSY, and they’ll only be available on our site!”

Thanks!

Thank you for verifying. Helpful info

Elle

Boxy here I come 😂

Redhed36

For sure. Just joined the waitlist for the premium like 10 min ago.

Christy

I just want to know how yall can call this “trash” when it literally hasn’t even launched yet? Ipsy is about trying new things that you might not have even heard about. Maybe finding something to love that you would have normally not even given a chance. Ipsy is NOT for name brand snobs demanding high end products 100% of the time. Please get over yourselves. I, for one, and super excited to try something new!

LB

So true. I always thought ipsy was supposed to be more about indy brands. I love finding stuff I otherwise probably wouldn’t have given a chance because they are NOT already being blasted all over by (paid) influencers. And they typically provide more skincare and K beauty products too which I think is great. There definitely was some confusion with regards to Ultimate when it was first being promoted but I think a lot of people just got their own hopes up too high. I’ve watched quite a few unboxings and read reviews and I think it’s interesting that the people who didn’t know anything about the background or drama seemed to enjoy what they got and found value in it a lot more than those in tune with the hype and mass outrage….

Megan Moret

I agreed with you up until that we got our hopes up. First off it was supposed to be 8 full size products and 4 deluxe size. I got 5 full-size and 7 deluxe. The value of my box was 200 dollars and it was supposed to be 250+ Besides the fact that’s 90 percent of it was leftovers for previous months. There were only 4 new products in the entire Ultimate one being the Boop. We were supposed to get a bigger bag that didn’t happen. They lied. Period. They used us to unload a ton of old products. For what we got we could of paid 37 dollars for the glam bag and glam bag plus. And gotten all new better products. My friends glam bag plus had a higher value then my 50 dollar Ultimate. If you don’t see the problem in that then You must be ok with being lied to 🤷‍♀️

Cheryl

Ugh, that bag is beyond horrible. Think it’s time to freeze til after the holidays!

Dobercatmom

Seriously Ipsy? ANOTHER collaboration under your “brand”? I did NOT sign up with Ipsy to receive CHEAP, no-name makeup every month. I signed up for name brand makeup and skincare.

If they’re going to turn into “Collab-Central”, I’m OUT at the first opportunity.

Debbie

I LOVE your name! Dobercatmom! That has to be the best ever! I’m going to change mine.

Jan

Okay, I’m skipping this month. None of these makeup items are in shades I like, and that leopard print bag is butt-ugly to me. Really hoping that the December bag has something better to offer…

TheOnlyDiva

I am glad I only bought the base bag. This white/private label/collab items are not what I signed up for. This is not “a set of personalized beauty products you can’t wait to try, test, and tell your friends about. ”

Two metallic purple and one silver metallic eye-shadow when I specify neutrals and NO adventurous shades is not my idea of personalized.

I got some ok brushes and a nice hand cream but everything else will be gifts at Christmas.

I protest by taking my money elsewhere. They only learn when they lose money. 3 million subscribers…. does that include the influencers that they give free subscriptions to to spam all over social media. I have 3 bags, I have 8 bags, I have 10 bags….yeah right!

I wish you all the best!
