  1. Sometimes I miss ipsy and the super cute bags, but then I remember all of the black eyeliner, highlighter, dry shampoo, and weird colors I’d get. Despite that, I still kinda want the $30 mystery…

  2. I bought the Gigi gorgeous one they did an un bagging of all the October Mystery bags and Gigi one and Gigi had the dual bronzer from Plus bag and the brush so $14 seemed like great deal. I know mystery bags don’t have same items because I was screwed over in April but GiGi only had so many variants you can get plus I am gifting most of it to my mom we call her Gigi ( great grandma)

    • I really liked the Gigi mystery bag. I got a full size get lit highlighter, lip gloss, sample size blush and setting powder and highlighting brush. Plus the bag is really nice. I’m super thrilled with the bag, as all I really wanted to get was the blush and the lip gloss.

  3. Free shipping on all Ipsy Shopper orders is also now in effect! A good time to pick up that brush you need to complete your collection or that lip balm you’re almost out of!

    These are the brand deals that I personally think are best:
    – Seraphine Botanicals: 50% off!!!
    – Cake Beauty/Delectable: 10%/20% not a huge discount, but it’s a Canadian company, so shipping to the US is typically high
    – Kaleido Cosmetics: 25% off, a lot is already sold out
    – TokyoMilk/Lollia/The Cottage Greenhouse/Love & Toast: 10% discount, includes the Fall Margot Elena box for $45
    – Coloured Raine & Makeup Geek: 10% discount, but includes sale prices from the individual retailers’ individual clearance sections, so there are some steals

    • Oh, I forgot Comptoire Sud Pacifique & État Libre D’Orange fragrances: individual high-end fragrance samples for less than $4!

      • Thanks for the info Marion! I really like Cake Beauty and TokyoMilk and happy to get a discount. I bought the Advent Calendar and it came with 3 free samples,the Comptoire Sud Pacifique was one of them but that only had a drop in the vial. It didn’t smell so it isn’t like it spilled. The other 2 were full samples:)

      • Ulta has had Cake beauty as part of their Black Friday or Cyber Monday sale for 50% off in past . Online only though.

    • Wow! Thanks so much for this, Marion! I used to shop with them more frequently but since they changed the site it’s not as easy to find the brands that are on sale. They used to show you the top discounted brands on the main Shopper page. They’re doing themselves and their customers a disservice by not having that anymore.

  4. I’m in just to get the regular Betty Boop bag…. I have had NUMEROUS people ask if they can have it or if I have another one, lol. It cracks me up after having read all of the negative comments about that particular bag/Betty Boop. Apparently she is the icon I thought she was and am really glad that I’m not the only one that liked it.

    Thanks Ipsy for a really cute bag!!!

    • I liked it too!

  5. Didn’t the extra 10% off apply to mystery bags & Ipsy offers last year?

    Doesn’t seem to be the case this year. Bummer.

  6. Hahahaha $64 for Ultimate. It felt like a rip off at $50.

  7. Because it’s a mystery bag and not tailored to your profile, ipsy should be charging LESS than the equivalent bag, not MORE. Why $14 instead of $12? Why $32 instead of $25? Why $64 instead of $50? You’re getting the same number of items.

    • I agree. In fact, I have 2 Ipsy accounts from when subscribers weren’t able to have the regular bag & the plus bag on the same account. I just reactivate it if I see a month of really good products.

      You have to have a different email address to have a 2nd account, but you can even give yourself referral points!

      • I created a second account for that same reason but kept it because I found that oftentimes the spoilers I liked from the different bags came from different categories. This way I’m able to adjust each profile accordingly. I didn’t know I could’ve gotten referral points though! Darn! Maybe I’ll close that 2nd account and replace it with one with another email. Now is the perfect time since they’re giving you many more points for referrals. Thanks again for more helpful info, Marion!

  8. So, they want more money for mystery bags?! That’s comical.
    Nope. Not getting any from me.
    Who would want to risk getting any ‘Boop’ items?!

  9. $64 for that trash ultimate role out?!!? What?! There is a reason why IPSY is giving people triple points for referrals… and that mess of a box was it.

    • 😂 Aaaannnd the items that are up have been there forever, it seems like…

  10. Lol! No… Ipsy should be selling all of their past Glambags at a discount.

  11. GiGi mystery bag sold out. That was the only one I was interested in.

    • But I’m sure that “& More” (above) means “Gigi stuff”.

    • It ended up being a really good mystery bag.
