  1. I did not love anything in my bags, but added on: Verso hydration cream, Billion Dollar Brows bestsellers, Filorgia eye correction cream, Veriphy power trip AHA serum, Youth to the People air-whip cream, Confidence in a cleanser, La Chloris rose mask, Confidence in a cream, First Aid oat & cannabis oil, and Playlist pineapple body lotion.

    A couple of those I love, and are way cheaper than normal, so am thinking about scaling back Ipsy to just 1 bag, in order to purchase add-ons, since my bags have been such disappointments the past few months. :/

    Also, does anyone know why it is that the add-ons are different for different people? It’ll show available add-ons above, and have a nailpolish or cream that doesn’t show up on mine – not even when they first open, and not even as sold out; just not on the page, period.

  2. If I sign up for Ipsy now, can I immediately choose add ons?

    • No. You can only choose addons on the second of the month when they reveal what’s in the bags. You only have 24 hrs to choose too. If you don’t have a bag prepping for the month then you can’t get addons. If you sign up now you can pick your one item for Dec on Nov 25 and then pick addons on Dec 2.

      Right now my timeline shows nov 25 as the day this month for choice but that could change.

  3. I was not impressed this month with the products in the bags. So I paused the ultimate and plus and just kept the regular bag. I have not really been impressed with ipsy for a few months now. I’m giving it till December. I’m hoping the products will be good because of Christmas. But If I’m not happy with the spoilers I will say goodbye and cancel. I have BOXYCHARM anyways and an usually happy with them.
    As for add ons I’m kicking myself for not adding the IT cleanser. I thought I had saw it as a spoiler for boxy so didn’t buy it. I knew I should’ve checked first but oh well. I’m on cleanser overload right now anyways. I don’t usually wash my face with soap but use makeup remover then micellar water as a toner to get what the makeup wipes didn’t

  4. I had different add on choices. I got a full size (5 ounces) IT Cleanser for $12, a mini IT Cream, the mini MAC makeup remover, the Valenti gloss, and the Neon lip balm. It’s gotten to where the only reason I still have Ipsy is for add-ons. I’m basically paying them $12 a month for the privilege of paying them more for what I wish I had gotten in my bag. After looking at all of the products available this month, I feel like they truly went out of their way to send me the only 5 things I didn’t want. It’s so weird to me. I usually roll my eyes when people complain but I’m starting to understand the extreme frustration people are feeling. I’m super new to subscription boxes and have only had this one for three months but every month with Ipsy is a disappointment which I just don’t understand. After looking at everything that was available this month that I could have gotten, I just want to know how do they manage to find the only 5 things I don’t want every month!?!? I made the mistake of ordering two mystery bags as well because I was so excited at the idea and both of them also contained the only 5 products from each of their respective months that I did not want. I’m going to go through December only because I hope it will be an amazing month (since it’s a holiday month) but after that I’m out. There are too many other amazing looking boxes to try. I’ve also had to contact customer service about an issue before and they were beyond disappointing.

    • Joy-

      What did you get in your bag? I’m OK with my GB, not so much with GBP. I think I used to be so much more excited about it before choice, flash and add-ons, when it was a real surprise and there was no way to see “what could have been.”

      I like GB because in 3 years, I’ve only got a few of my “rarely” products once, like nail and fragrance… and some of my rarely products like self tanner, yay! NEVER!

      • I received:

        Insanely Intense Mini Tattooed Eyeliner in Jet Black

        Black is the only eyeliner I don’t wear. I wear more brown or gold or champagne eyeliner. I’m crazy pale and black is just too harsh on me. To be fair I gave the previous black eyeliner I received a chance and it still looks terrible on me.

        Lipstick in Opus

        Again with the color. Just extremely harsh on me.

        Turnt Touch Up Powder in Translucent

        Ipsy sent me translucent setting powder in a mystery bag last month- Also I don’t use powder.

        Triple Citrus Blend Butter Balm Hand Cream

        Fragrance in hand cream is a big no no with me. Plus I’m just not interested in receiving hand cream period.

        Ultra Repair Cannabis & Oat Dry Oil

        This is my pick. I will be giving this a try.

        The first four things are all on my rarely list whether for item or color.

        Like I mentioned I’m new to Ipsy so I’ve never experienced it without add-one or choice. I agree with you that not being able to see all of the products that “could have been” would be so much better. When I look at all of the things I “could have” received is when I really get the most irritated. There were plenty of things (and certainly 5) that are all on my “frequently” list so it’s just frustrating.

        Also, as I mentioned above, they say they personalize but I haven’t found that to be true at all. But now that I know that I know I am free to take my $ elsewhere.

        I’ve also had Birchbox for 3 months and I am thrilled with them every single month so maybe I should just get two of them. One of the things that appealed to me about Ipsy was the fun bags that I do enjoy very much. Birchbox doesn’t have that so I will miss it with Ipsy. I loved this months bag so much I was going to sign up for plus and ultimate for November only just to get the bags! Once my glam bag was revealed though I decided not to chance it and instead just look online for a cute leopard makeup bag. I’m sure I can find an amazing one for the cost of plus alone! Lol.

        I didn’t mean for my comment to be offensive or whiny, just sharing my experience and opinion like everyone else. 😊

      • Lol joy! We got the same bag! I’m ok with it and I love black eyeliner.

        I have lotion on my rarely list and this is the first time I’ve got it in a while.

        I had birch box for a year and didn’t really like it all that much. But it was a gift, so I wasn’t all that critical of it.

        If you just want the containers/bags you can usually find them on eBay for cheap. One of my GBs was lost and when they sent me the replacement it was not in the right bag and I REALLY wanted the bag so I got it on eBay for $5.

      • That is a great idea for the bags! Thank you so much, I will definitely check that out.

    • same here , love the add on’s so really don’t mind paying $12.00 a month 🙂

  5. I picked up the Farmacy masks and Gigi contour brush. Was sooo tempted to get the Nomad Berlin shadow palette, but I had to resist. I just bought two shadow palettes from Pur, and still have a Tarte and an Urban Decay palette. Product overload… glad I skipped GBP this month.

  6. The farmacy sheet masks are really nice and hydrating, they are $6 each at sephora, so 2 for $3 is a really good deal, I might snag those if I can get on the site. However they are really tricky to apply, you need to be patient and pull them apart slowly as they are a really soft gel and can tear easily. I have used them before and loved how they made my skin feel and look after just 1 application.

    • love those farmacy masks. this is the second time I bought them as add-ons. $1.50 each is a great price.

      • Thanks you two! You made me go back and get them!

  7. Went on to Ulta and Sephora and they had some great holiday sales .. so spent my money on stuff I really wanted to try, plus for some early Christmas presents .. money well spent 🙂
    I got the I dew care set with 20% off so it came out to $20.00 with spatula included I love their products 🥰🥰

  8. I got the SLMissGlam blue brush. I love it! So pretty.

  9. Here’s a question for longtime subscribers: is it often that there’s issues with Ipsy website with not being able to access add ons etc. I’m seeing a handful here and in Facebook, does this happen often? So irritating I can’t access mine.

    • Yes, it is an issue for some every month.

    • I still cant access mine

      • Check again if you haven’t already I was finally able to get in!, I am thrilled with my bag and add ons 😉 finally !

      • Yes I just got into mine too! I missed the mauve blush

      • Oh no bummer hopefully you like your bag and was able to pick up something fun! I got a peach blush in my bag I love it. I added on a blending brush and the sol body cream 🙂

    • Yes…

  10. And Did anyone buy the ColourPop Cosmetics eyeshadow palette cause I’m kind of regretting not buying it 😕😕😕

  11. I wanted to purchase more items but I decided this month to not spend too much money – I will say though that the Nomad Palette is amazing so if you’re thinking of buying it do it!

    Royal & Langnickel
    Moda Pro Glow Brush

    NYX Lip Lingerie

    I also had the Too Faced mascara sample and as soon as I made my purchase it sold out I guess because I got an email apologizing and stating it cancelled the order for the mascara due to being sold out but didn’t charge me at least so I won’t have to wait for a refund or anything at least 🤷🏼‍♀️😒

  12. Meh add ons this month, I didn’t get any. I get the plus bag, and this is the worst month since I started, even looking at all the products list. Just not much I wanted.

    • I agree. I got no add ons this month and even wished I had skipped this month. Everything in my bag will be given away.

  13. Not too many exciting add ons as usual :/
    I added on IT cleanser , Gigi lipgloss , vasanti in super mom ,veriphy skincare ..

    My bag meh really one of my least favorite .. glad I didn’t get gbp, or ultimate , I’ll just stick with the regular until Ipsy steps up its game some .. I did pick the foundation am excited to try that . Got one Gigi product translucsecent powder but I’m okay with that

  14. Is it just me? Or are some of these add ons products that were just recently in the rewards points items section???

  15. I got the it Cosmetics cleanser (trying to get my husband to up his skincare game) and the Bare Minerals bounce blush – I don’t need another blush but I’m super curious about the texture and wear.

    • Cannot select my add-ons for November very disappointing

  16. Got the Huda Highlighter pallete I was not buying due to pricing, and the trendsetter lip! So excited! Also got the benefit mascara and the nyx lip sample! Also the products in my bag where great! A good haul!

  17. I’m so upset the Oribe scalp product wasn’t available to add on since I didn’t get it in my bag. My scalp goes crazy in cold weather and it’s one of the few items that helps. I just can’t justify paying almost $50 for a tube that doesn’t last me that long. The only other thing that helps is made by Brigeo (ap?) and it’s a little cheaper but doesn’t last long at all.

    I also hate that there was only one Huda lip add-on and it was in one of the few shades I can’t wear. I just cannot do browns or brownish colors. I watched the FB video of the spoilers (which was torture btw. I do not recommend it if you’re over 25 or have ADD or very little patience), which is something I’ve never bothered with, and saw 4 or 5 beautiful shades they were putting in November bags. Two were more purple than I like but still wearable. And two were absolutely gorgeous and perfect for me. Not only did I not get even one in my regular or Ultimate bag, none were available to buy except the brownish red not even mentioned in the video.

    Oh well. I did add in that $12 eye cream, mainly because it’s supposed to also help your lashes grow, the peachy-pink GiGi lipgloss and the BareMinerals bouncy blush, mostly because I’m curious about the texture.

    • FB video??

    • my sis is having problems with her scalp ever since she had her baby, and she has the same scalp issues with the weather as well. can you name the oribe product you or anyone else uses to help? want to make her a little gift box so not sure if a certain shampoo, condioner, hair brush or a dry shampoo makes a difference as well. i would be ever so grateful bc she is too embarrassed to even get a haircut. thanks!

      • I had some pretty intense issues postpartum as well, and still have some scalp issues off and on. That’s definitely a conversation to have with the doctor and someone who professionally does hair. It was my hair dresser that was able to recommend certain products for my scalp and hair type, including products available at Walmart. I know how embarrassing it can be. Please don’t let that stop you from talking about it.

      • thanks for the response. with the scalp issues, can anyone recommend what products would help? i want to put together a gift basket for her, she doesn’t buy anything for herself.. just her kids so i want to spoil her for once. 🙂 if anyone can suggest products that work, i would be so grateful! sorry if off topic but i trust anyone smart enough to love this website! i don’t have issues, so i have no idea where to start.. I don’t know what oribe scalp product is referenced. thanks!

    • The Facebook videos are sooo painful to watch! At least this month they didn’t have the woman with her invisalign in. It was difficult to understand her at times. Just get on with showing the products, no one is there to actually chat with them unless it’s to show the products better.

      • Yeah. Super hard to watch live. I wait and watch them after and FF through most of it. I posted the link here, but I guess it got removed. They are on the ipsy FB page.

  18. I have the plus bag and while im not blown away with my bag im not mad either. For my add on I chose the it cosmetics cleanser (5oz).

  19. I skipped this month, but tried to check my mom’s and the site won’t load. Either way, there isn’t anything here I think she’d be interested in

  20. Why are the add ons not showing for me?? I have logged out and in for 30 minutes ugh

    • Same for me and I’m getting the Nov bag

      • Same for me and I’ve tried the direct link too. I can’t view my bag either. I’m getting the November bag and they’ve charged me, but I can’t view it or do add ons. 🙁

      • Same, it’s like it’s November 1st for me… cant see my bag or addons

      • Same here I’ve tried all the links

  21. Wow, none of this appeals to me. First time since Ipsy introduced add-ons that I didn’t get anything.

    • Same! And since when is a full sized add in $18???

      • Supposed to be better products? Juice sucks (btw its only 1oz) and huda is meh

      • 1 oz is the full size for the Juice Beauty

      • They are doing this now for the high-ticket add-ons. Like last month we could get the Dr. Brandt (RV $79) as a $12 add-on, but not anymore. Sucks.

  22. Add ons wont show for me 🙁

  23. I skipped this month because I’m on product overload right now but seeing the ads ons that have been available every month does make me happy that when I eventually do need more eye cream or face serum I’m going to be able to get some at a good price! I think the add ons feature is awesome.

    • I’m with you julie! I love the add ons. I choose the farmacy masks every time they’re available!

    • I thought the add ons were absolutely fabulous!

  24. Make sure to check the pricing. They raised some add ons to 18 and they add tax. Not a bad deal but good to know before you get excited and accidentally pay 30 percent more.

  25. I got the Veriphy serum as add ons for both of my bags. There were some other things I was interested in (Bare Minerals mauve blush, Vasanti lip oil, Hola Neon balm etc) but I passed on them this month.

    • Is this brand good? I have never heard of it but it seems a lot of people are adding it on.

      • The Veriphy Serum

      • I haven’t tried it before but I did some research before adding it on and liked what I saw. It’s CF, vegan, women owned, ingredient conscious (free from sulfates, parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, silicones and fragrance), made in Canada, and they work to empower women in STEM science schools and careers.

        I am excited to try it, but kind of hope I don’t like it TOO much. It’s pricey LOL. Or maybe I hope to love it and that Ipsy will give us a full size one of these months. Hint hint Ipsy…

      • The most horrible part of the video was watching them trying to explain STEM and be like “oh, super smart scientist women” or whatever they were going on about.

      • I’m not sure what video you are referring to

      • I think it’s in reference to the weekly video they put out on Facebook and Instagram for the Ipsy offers.

    • How do you get add-ons in both bags? Do you open both windows at once?

      • I have two separate accounts from when you couldn’t have them together. I just never bothered to merge them because I feel like they do a better job following my profile on the regular glam bag account. They haven’t been following it as well on the GBP account and I don’t want to risk my smaller bag profile being messed up by merging them

      • Click on glam bag – then addons – pay for products then click on gbp and do the same. It will be two separate payments.

      • Hi Val. Thanks, but that doesn’t work for me. Once I submit payment on the first one (GB), when I click on GBP, add-ons option is gone and it shows what I picked for my GB. I do still have a window open on GBP add-ons that I opened before I submitted the first payment tho. I don’t know if that will work.

        I thought that other ppl could do it bc they have separate accounts.

      • I cannot switch from one to the other in the app so I do one in the app and the other on the web.

      • THANK YOU LYNDA!!!!!

        That’ worked. Doing one on the site and one on the app. I tried doing both on the web by opening up a window on both GB and GBP for add-ons, submitting one, then submitting the other, but I guess that doesn’t work since it’s literally the same page on the backend.

        I went back for the Nomad palette, even tho I got it in September GBP. So many ppl were talking about it, I figured I could use it as a gift. I also got another Veriphy and Verso serum, the tinted lip balm and Farmacy masks, even though I got them in past GBs, I guess $1.50 per mask is a good deal.

        I love to take the packaged masks in the shower with me and float it on the tub floor to get it all nice and warm and then apply post-shower.

        As of 11pm EST, only the Benefit and Too Faced Damn Girl mascaras, Vasanti lip gloss, Blackhead mask and Milani lip plumper are sold out. I’m surprised.

      • You are welcome. Glad that worked for you! And thanks for the tip about the masks in the shower. That is one thing I don’t like about them – they are so cold!

  26. Due to Farmacy green clean mishap ( I was sent 3.2 oz with silver cap instead of 3.4 oz with white cap) I got BOGO $3 add on . I got pineapple lotion and Miss Glam blue face brush. Ipsy only sends me boring black brushes.

    • Did it automatically apply it at checkout?

      • Yes it did apply automatically . I actually got 2 different responses because Twitter took a,week to get back to me so I emailed IpsyCare . The Ipsy Care rep is sending me the product advertised Twitter was like sorry for confusion it is full size and not expired yadda yadda here is BOGO for your trouble . I was not confused 90 ml is less than 100 ml . White package is new silver is older. But I didn’t respond back to Twitter lady.

      • What is the difference between the two? I added on two and both had silver caps.

      • I was not terribly disappointed in this box as I have been in past months. My pick was the blush palette, I thought it was the nicest of the choices I was offered.they are sending me the gigi lip gloss and that really dark lipstick (finally the listened to color choice) and the last was the ciate dew stick which is not my cup of tea but I would say 4 out of 5 to be happy about is fair I am hoping to get boxy 2.0, if I do ipsy will be getting the boot, I like boxes quality much better as well as their product selection. Ipsy sending me NYC and the balm, where I get dr brandy, farmacy, butter London, tarte, etc. Ipsy is just a little above drugstore range were boxy seems more high end at least for me, also I like the idea of no promised repeats getting everything from 1 company also have been thrilled with each luxe boxes from the beginning

    • I got that too! Had no idea! Thanks for telling my I got the wrong Farmacy product!

  27. I have more add-on choices including JUICE BEAUTY Stem Cellular Anti-Wrinkle Booster Serum for $18.

    I’m not sure I want to get anything tho.

    Any must-haves?

    This is what I got:

  28. Wow, I went ham! I bought 7 add-ons!

    SDJ Coco Cabana x 2 (I prefer the original formula, but I’m still obsessed with this stuff), Hola Neon lip balm, LOCK foundation in Light Buff, YTP whipped moisturizer, Playlist pineapple body lotion, & Vasanti lip oil.

    I would have also purchased the Nomad palette, but I swapped for it & I’m currently waiting for it to arrive in the mail! 😁😁😁

  29. I got the It Cosmetics cleanser and the rose mask.
