  1. Did anyone received this VV palette with your bag this month?
    I signed up for this but haven’t received it with my bag nor heard any shipping?

    • Yes, I got my free VV palette but it came in a skin care box I had ordered during their special promotions around Thanksgiving. I was expecting it in my regular Ipsy bag for December but I still haven’t received it. Got my Plus box late last week.

      • Thanks for your reply. I still haven’t gotten it and I sent Ipsy a message and no answer yet. I wonder if others are experiencing the same?

  2. I emailed ipsycare and they are NOT giving me this promo after I signed up through this link.

    I signed up under an old account after I received the email about getting a bonus bag. I don’t see how that should matter, but oh well. I’ll just cancel again after this month..

    • They should honor it regardless. I would send email after email after email…. If almost every other subscription will??? I had not been subscribed to Birchbox for a couple of years, but I still got the promo when I signed back. You could also report that to the BBB. I would not hesitate to mention that in emails either. Ipsy used to care about their subscribers. But, they have recently become super greedy and snotty. They’ve lost quite a few subscribers and they’re loosing more. In the few years I’ve been subscribed to Ipsy, I’ve never seen them offer anything like this to sign up. Tell them they should be lucky you want to resubscribe after the way they’ve been treating customers and now ones who want to come back. Not to mention, if they are letting others, why not you?

  3. I signed up for Ipsy on Sunday, the day before this special was offered! Is there any way that I can add a referral code to take advantage of this freebie?

  4. I got their regular Black Friday deal they offered this morn to past subs. Free bag(both bags the free and paid to total over 100$ retail) with restart of sub to start in Dec. So guessing I get Nov free? Anyway, Picked the the more cool tone tarte Blush. If I don’t like it I can just cancel in Dec, no worries

    • Where did you see this offer?

      • It was sent to my inbox

      • Oh and value of 100 it said was combined for the 2 bags

  5. I caved! Cancelled earlier this year but im back for 2020!

  6. The link doesn’t work…is there another one?

  7. Hi, so i sign up using this link but I don’t see the eyeshadow palette in my activities tab 🙁 am i not going to receive it?

  8. Caved on this one too! 😂

  9. I’m trying to get this activated but it’s only giving me the option to pay for the annual enrollment fee rather than month to month billing. So frustrating! Has anyone else had this problem and found a work around? If I don’t sign up thru Liz’s link, I don’t think I’ll get the VV palette. You have to sign up under her link to get the shadow palette, right???? Thanks!

  10. Liz, can you confirm if they still have this item in stock? I signed up and tried going to my activities and I don’t see the palette in there… I’d be super disappointed if I didn’t get it before they ran out because I’ve been wanting to try VV for a while.

  11. I bought this! I like the colors in this palette and I really prefer mini palettes so that’s a huge win!

  12. How do i know if the palette was added to my glam bag?

    • Go to the Points tab, & select Activities.

  13. Is this a first for Ipsy???

  14. I couldn’t resist. I love pink shadows 🙂

  15. I really don’t need another palette, but this one I have been eyeing! Plus, this way I can pick a second item and get the skin regiment night detox. My normal bag I picked the tarte shimma & shake blush.

  16. Ugh, I’m so tempted! I LOVED the VV palette I received in Boxy a couple of months ago, and my favorite shades appear to be in this palette. I’m thinking this one could go in my gym makeup bag, but I do have waaaaay too much stuff already. *sigh*

  17. Just got this deal for $13 after tax. i was able to pick an item, but the lip gloss was sadly OOS; got the coffee scrub instead. Hope my other items are great!

  18. So can we get the pallet and offer now, or is this just for Friday?

    • This is for now.

  19. Is it for new subscription only?

    • I’m verifying now and will let you know when I hear back.

    • I was able to reactivate my old account using the getgift url a couple of weeks ago.

      The palette is confirmed, appearing in my points activity page.

      • Do you remember how long it takes for the points to post?

      • I believe it was immediately. The confirmation email just says “Yay, you’re getting a gift!” so I went to the activity page to confirm & screenshot it.

      • Do you happen to know the “getgift” URL? When I try using the link above it takes me to my sign up page but doesn’t show the palette 🙁 Thanks for the help!

      • I signed up and didn’t get the email. I got nervous so I went to Ipsy’s website and clicked on points then activities. I saw it said on there that I’m getting the Violet Voss palette palette. Make sure you use the link that OP posted on the website when signing up.

  20. Hard pass. Don’t need eye shadow at all.

  21. If we sign up today, would we get to choose a product for our bags? I think that’s happening today.

    • Yes, you can choose 1 item for December

    • Jacki is right. I was able to choose for December.

  22. Would have snagged this if it was a decent skincare item.

    • Same.

  23. Is this for new subscribers only?

    • No! I reactivated using this getgift url a couple weeks ago!

  24. Poop! I bought the annual.

    • If you just bought it, I would shoot them an email saying you saw this promo. I bet they’d give it to you

  25. I don’t need another eyeshadow palette, so this is an easy pass for me. So far 0/2. I hope Black Friday deals on Black Friday have some winners for me.

  26. Anyone know what month we will get? I didn’t want November’s.

    • I’ll reach out to verify and let you know as soon as I hear back.

      • Can you also see if we get to choose for this month? Thanks!!

      • Could you please do the same for the Penny & Grace deal posted? I know it’s not a BTBF deal but a few of us are wondering and waiting to pull the trigger based on which month/spoilers.
        Thank you for all you do, Liz!

      • Sure, will reach out now!

      • Thank you Liz! I appreciate it!

      • Here’s their response:

        Subscribers today would receive the November box through the end of November unless/until it sells out. If the box sells out prematurely, a notice will be put at the top of the product/club sign up page stating that the November box is sold out and they are signing up for the December box.

        Boxes are always reserved and fulfilled on a first come first serve basis. All current subscribers receive first priority, and then new orders are fulfilled in sequential order thereafter

        Hope that helps!

      • Thank you so much Liz, that definitely helps!

      • Thanks, Liz!

      • The first month will be December. I hope that helps!

    • December is what my page says.
