  1. Ipsy plus has really been down graded, esp since ultimate came out.

    Ultimate gets a Tarte lipstick & Huda ESP? 😱 wth?

    Didn’t think I’d say it so soon.. think it’s time for me to go back to Boxy

  2. This is how we are going to start off the new year!? Ugh I think I might pass on this and just get my ultimate bag. Or just try again in February with all three. The bags are the only thing I really want lol

  3. Im super excited for the eyeshadows! Its awesome to get a quality product with great pigmentation and and blendability.

  4. I was really looking forward to January, but since I started getting a monthly box from Sew Sampler (yes, we do have other interests LOL) and loved it, this box has to go. I really enjoyed Ipsy Glam Bag Plus, but have more beauty products than I can ever use now. So, sadly I have to let this go, even thought I think it’s the best beauty box out there.

  5. I feel like I am the only one who is really excited for this box. The past few have been such meh and I never gotten a Huda palette nor used this brand before. I like hearing brands that I never heard of. I’m excited and can’t wait for this box.

  6. I actually enjoy just the small Ipsy sample bag the most. Some of my go to products, I have first tried through that subscription. Ipsy just does not wow me when it comes to the higher tier bags. I like the eyeshadow Pallet, but I have about 15 shadow pallets. I will be quite elderly before I could ever use all them.
    Eyeshadow Pallets are lovely but how many can you actually Pan, it takes me 3 years to pan 3 colors (Depending on formula). I rotate them out buy season.
    I think it is a form of OCD but I feel I must completely finish my pallets and not waste them (Silly I know).

    • The eyeshadows do expire. I discard them after twelve months no matter what. I’m OCD, too, so I understand. I have to steel myself to toss. However, it’s important to use fresh cosmetics especially for eye health. I discard mascara after two months. Mascara has the shortest usable time.

      • That’s too soon to toss a pressed powder eyeshadow unless it shows a sign of change or maybe is some granola brand without a good preservative. Be OCD about the environment and stop wasting things you’ve bought for arbitrary reasons. Best by dates on food are not expiration dates, either. Please, don’t buy things if you’re just going to add to landfills with them. If you have real OCD then there is no shame in seeing a therapist about compulsively throwing useable things away. Living with diagnosed OCD is a hardship, but you don’t have to do it alone.

        Liquid mascara and eyeliner should not be kept longer than recommended. That is flatly unsafe.

        • WOW. You sure took liberties doling out personal advice for me. You know nothing about me, yet you assume I’m not an avid environmentalist. I can’t believe you think I compulsively discard products. In the future, keep your incorrect assumptions to yourself.

    • *palette* as other is made out of wood! #onlytryingtohelp #dontshootthemessenger

  7. Ipsy choice is up if anyone is looking.

    • I need to stop delivery of the boxed IPSY. I can’t use all the products. I enjoy the products but I can’t possibly use all the products. Please stop anymore shipments ASAP!

      • Hi Debbie, please click here and you will find out how to stop your subscription. If you need any further assistance, we recommend reaching out to Ipsy Customer Support.

  8. Just skipped January after seeing my choice items. Not wasting the money since it’s been mostly a mix of items from choices that I receive. I’ve never skipped before. I have a feeling this may be the end of Ipsy for me. I’m just not impressed anymore.

  9. The thing I’m most sad about missing if I cancel is the ultimate bag! I need to repeat to myself I don’t need another makeup bag I don’t need another makeup bag…. lol

    • I don’t even see the spoilers for ultimate…and choice day is tomorrow lol WTH

      • Oh yes I know I have been checking every day I hope it’s exciting or I am going to pause my account I am excited about plus though this month both of my accounts were very disappointing I was super sad

        • I hope it’s good products.. Start off New year’s with a big bang and I’ve seen the plus spoilers.. Love em.. I can Probably can only get it on add ons lol sorry your bag was disappointing but I feel like they are trying to get better and I loved my December’s ultimate..I felt like I received the best products outta the whole. Received a Gigi highlighter as a deluxe so that was awesome I hope it gets better to your liking. I’m still gunna stick with ultimate to see if they can blow my mind away soon. If not back to plus and just do add ons lol

      • Choice day is here! 12/19 @7:20 am pacific time…they just dropped BC I’ve been checking for 2 hours…
        I chose the Juice Serum for + and a Korean pore mask for OG glam bag…

        Hope this helps!

  10. I received my Ipsy GBP opened and most of the items missing. I emailed Ipsy Care and they are sending me out a brand new order. I have never had any problems with customer service in the past and today is just the same.
    I’m loving the spoilers for the January GBP. I hope I get the Ruby Huda palette. I recived the Mauve Obsessions palette a few months ago, and I love it.

    • That happened to me on my first Ultimate order. I was missing TWO of my full-size items and I wrote in and they said: “am I sure?”. Meanwhile, it was my first time I had something like that has happened. They made me feel like I was robbing them because the rep said I was messaging them too much. Mind you, most of my messages I was asking why I was getting things I am opted out or not based on my skin tone. Or when I received something broke (I included images) or the wrong item or an item I already received. When the rep said that, I went off my handle and then another rep reviewed all my messaged and apologized. I get that I was complaining on certain things but, don’t promise something and then do the exact opposite.

    • I hope they dont accidentally send me the warm brown one again as I dont wsnt a duplicate of that. I passed that one along cause it’s to dark for me and I didnt like it. The other one appeals to me so I hope I get it.

    • CS took a long time to answer me but the rep who wrote me told me that they were extremely busy. They helped me out a lot.

      I already have had the warm browns palette so I hope I get the Ruby one. It looks amazing.

      I like all of this fine.

      After January I am pausing my subs until April.

      I bought 3 annual subs and that is all I need.

  11. I have both of the palettes. So it would be a waste of my money to get next months. I’ve been getting beauty subscriptions for so long I’ve had almost everything. I had to cancel 4 month’s ago because I had most of the products in the spoilers every month.

  12. So disappointed with both of my December Ipsys(plus&ultimate)! The customer service is a joke. How do they expect to keep current subscribers happy when you receive half empty products! 3 of mine came half or less full. 2 of those were add ons that i paid extra for. I have paused for now and if this isn’t taken care of bye bye Ipsy!

    • Did you measure the contents of the products? Frequently the containers can hold more product than the promised amount (i.e. 1 oz worth of product in a container that can hold 2oz).

      • Exactly, it says how much product you are getting. The size of the container is irrelevant.

      • As a mater of a fact I did take the time to measure all 3 and yes they were at least half full. This was not lost in shipping either, this is nothing more than a manufacturing defect. I like to think that these company’s would have some integrity when packaging. If I was to go to the store and purchase and received half empty there would be zero question of a replacement. All I want is to get what I paid for, no more no less.

        • I actually emailed them about this and they said that they go through vigorous checks and that the correct amount was in each bottle that’s just how the company does it.

    • What you need to understand is Ipsy is not responsible for how full the packaging is. Manufacturers package products by weight and not volume. They also use packaging that the product’s information will fit on. You may receive a product that it 3 grams of product in a 5 gram bottle, hence the appearance of it being half full. Most packaging is mass produced in just a handful of size increments.

      • Depends on the item. Some items are packed by volume. Grams/Ounces are weight; milliliters/fluid ounces are volume. Generally, liquids will be by volume, solids by weights. Not sure about the in betweens– I’ve got a hair smoothing “lotion” that’s got a gel-like consistency and it’s measured by volume, but my sunday riley cream is measured by weight.

      • You are absolutely correct I got ahold of them because I also thought the same thing especially after seeing why everybody else said and they said that they go through vigorous checks and they weigh or measure every single one of those and there is a correct amount of product in there

  13. Meh. Both of those Huda palettes are too warm for me. I just can’t bring myself to put reds on my eyes.

  14. I just wish ipsy would get better name products…same old stuff…

  15. The lipstick is the only thing that I would want out of these spoilers, so I will probably skip and hope it is available as an add-on. I like Huda, but I don’t like the colors of those 2 palettes. The Knours Skin Meditation has good ingredients and would be interesting to me if I were younger and still had bouts of acne. The Flesh glisten drops have propylparaben listed as an ingredient despite their website saying in their FAQ that they don’t put parabens in their products. And I am not a member of the Purlisse fan club. Their products I have tried (all from Ipsy) are ok, but nothing exciting to me.

    • Thanks for mentioning the Knours. I just scrolled past it because I have oily skin and a backlog of moisturizers. But even though I’m not young I still struggle with hormonal acne. I’m excited to try it now! Hopefully it’s one of the selections.

  16. Is this the first time the Purlisse Eye Cream has been available? I have some of their other products and really like them. Just wondering if it’s been offered before and might be included as an add-on. I’m really not interested in the other Plus spoilers and should cancel my subscription. I’m overwhelmed with skin care products right now and you can only use so many at a time. Thanks.

  17. I hope there will be more spoilers coming for this month. There is nothing that wow me so far, but I’m usually pleased with the Plus bag, not like Ultimate.

  18. I really like the bag but I think I’ll skip this month. I’ll wait until I see what the choice options are.

  19. Would not be upset with any of these!

  20. Definitely going to skip this month. I have too many Huda palettes from past boxes and enough Purlisse to bathe in it. I hope others love it. I might get the GBU for the bag, but I am on product overload.

  21. That’s good PURLISSE cream blue lotus , but I’m not gonna reprise my sub for that If I really wanted it I’d go on mercari and by it cheap . No sadly GBP is not wowing me for many months now :/

  22. These are the best products that I’ve seen in a long time. The last box that I received was in September, yet I see repeat items. 😕 I have two of the items shown in this set of spoilers. I’d like to have the Huda Ruby palette and I wouldn’t mind the Flesh highlighter in Aura or the medium color. What’s the deal with trends from the 90s coming back, when it comes to beauty? That lipstick looks dreadful. I hope that Ipsy does a live video showing the rest of the products, along with add-ons. If this box doesn’t improve, I’ll likely sign up for Boxy Premium.

  23. Oh wow! I think this is the first bag I won’t skip since May or June (one snuck through by accident in August but I did intend to skip that one.) I love HUDA shadows for the most part and don’t have any issues with them at all. I find the colors to apply true to pan even on my tan skin and her shimmers are amazing! I also like the lip color, it’s giving me red earth vibes and serious 90’s flashbacks to high school!

    • Same here, I just want the palette, I was actually going to buy one as a gift for someone so I’m loving the fact that I get 5 products for less than the price of one palette

  24. When this first started, I was like YAY! Huda palettes! And now I’m like Meh.. huda palettes…

    • I would have been YaY too . But I just bought All of them on Black Friday for $11 each 😏😂.

      • I did the same! I’m still waiting for 1/2 of them though.

  25. Thank you for the spoilers! I’m skipping again.

  26. Plus has not been doing anything for me meh I like my ultimates cause I love the bags I get with them. And I like regular Ipsy for travel make up and skin care. But these spoilers have done nothing for me skipped last month after the month before I didn’t enjoy anything and the plus use to be my favorite box.

  27. I am so in love with Purlisse now thanks to Ipsy. 😍😍😍. I have yet to have a disppointing product. I do not want the Flesh drops and already own the brown Huda. Everything else looks awesome. I finally got all three of my December Ipsys and I am so over the moon with all three of them this month. I wish the Plus and Ultimate bags were a little bigger, otherwise, I am super happy wading through all my goodies.

    • I first tried Purlisse products over a year ago when I got some free samples at Beautycon. I was hooked! I love all their moisturizers and serums, and the BB cream! So happy Ipsy carries them!

  28. Is anyone else having trouble pausing for January? I paused December and these spoilers aren’t doing it for me. I went to pause it again and I’m getting a message asking if I want to pause for March!! I’m looking to pause January. I sent them an email hopefully will get answer

    • I have not paused this time but I remember when I paused October it warned me that I was paused until December (instead of November). I was a bit nervous but went through with it anyways and it all still worked like normal….my sub was back active in November. So I’m thinking it may just be a typo??

      • I just tried pausing January and it’s asking me if I’m sure I want to pause until May 2020! 😨

    • It did that to me last month. I waited until the 29th and tried again and it worked

    • I’ve had this happen since the first time that I paused. You will need to message customer service to have them pause it for you. My pause option ended up being 2 months out. I changed my shipping option to every other month, because I haven’t received a box since September. I believe that you can only pause so many times in a row, before they cancel your subscription.

    • I am It keeps saying error and then when you go to pause you can’t , I emailed CS and she gives a stupid answer your in every other month – I’m like I don’t want this I want to be able to skip when I want !!!!

      • I believe if you switch off every other month and go back to every month it lets you pause…otherwise pause or skip isn’t available…

  29. Another skip month. Last GBP I didn’t skip was August… considering GBU though. Waiting for more spoilers.

  30. I’ve skipped several months in a row now after seeing the spoilers. I think it’s time to bite the bullet and unsubscribe 🙁

  31. If I can choose the Purlisse, then I’ll keep this month. If not, I’m skipping. Ipsy is not keeping me happy anymore

    • Me too! Seems I subscribe solely for Purlisse!!!

      • I hate Purlisse products! They don’t blow me away at all and they always ball up on me. The moisturizers are very moisturizing and the serums dont seem to do much. I end up selling all their products I receive on Mercari. Very disappointing since alot of ppl like the brand/products. I have many other products which I can see and feel a difference using which I don’t get w the Purlisse ones.

  32. I cancelled last month because I didn’t want the December bag. Does anyone know if I resubscribe today which month will be my first bag? I’m not interested in this months bag.

    • I’d wait till Jan 1. You can place bags on hold instead of canceling. I do that after I see the spoilers.

  33. I think I will skip January as well (skipped December). I’ve actually been happier with Boxy November and December. It’s usually the other way around. I know folks love the Huda shadow palettes but I have 2 and I’m not feeling either one. Serious question – what am I missing?

    • I’ve honestly never been impressed with Huda…Especially her liquid lipsticks. You aren’t missing anything. Most the women I’ve talked to in my makeup groups or who actually wear makeup on a daily basis, don’t prefer her formulas either. They are all hype no performance.

      • Hmm I wear makeup daily and I love Huda it’s very high performing in my opinion ESPECIALLY the liquid lipsticks they aren’t too runny as some people say you just have to know how to use it, Huda has some of the best liquid matte lips I’ve ever used they dry down so comfortably and wear beautifully and that’s from someone who wears a full face of makeup on the daily so I guess everybody has their opinions 🤷🏼‍♀️

    • I like the Huda formula just fine, but I have easier formulas to work with. I’m like you- we’ve been seeing these Huda 9 pans for over 6 months now, both in the boxes and as add-ons. I’ve gotten the ones I’m interested in and am sick of seeing them now. Also don’t need highlighting drops and don’t use physical exfoliants that often, so GBP will stay cancelled for the 5th month in a row. This month does look better than the last 2 or 3 have though.

      • Won’t they cancel our subscription if we pause for a certain number of months in a row? The last box that I received was in September.

    • I have the Huda Mauve palette, and it’s my favorite! I guess everyone has their preference.

      I am drowning in palettes and probably don’t need another, though. Time to purge!

      • I love Huda eyeshadows. The formulas are so creamy, so little fallout, so blendable, and the colors are true to pan. Ipsy can’t please everyone, I really hope I can get the warm brown, since I have ruby and mauve lol

  34. Love both of those palettes and wouldn’t be disappointed with either of them (though Ruby is my favorite). I’ve received the GOLDFADEN MD DOCTOR’S SCRUB before and really liked it, so I would be happy to have another tub of it to use.

  35. Great spoilers!!

  36. Skipping again.

  37. The only thing I like is the bag, dang it! Those eyeshadow palettes are way too bold for me. I loved last month I really had my hopes up. And the last thing I need is another lipstick I’ve been overloaded with them lately.

  38. Does anyone know the date for choice?

    • The 19th!

    • It’s this Thursday, the 19th!🤗

    • 12/19 according their timeline.

  39. Can someone tell me, if I pause for January can I still order from the Ipsy Offers in the shopper section?

    • I believe so, because I’m pretty sure Ipsy shopper is available to non-Ipsy subscribers as well. They just don’t get the member discount or cash back.

    • Yes!

      • Thank you!

      • Wow! I thought that if you paused your membership you weren’t able to shop. Thanks for asking and answering ladies. I buy quite a few of their offers but hadn’t done anything this month because I had paused.

        • You can when you pause or cancel your membership. I haven’t had an Ipsy sub in ages, but once in a great while, I will purchase an Ipsy Offer and it goes through just fine.

        • I buy a lot, too. Just not interested in any of the spoilers this month. This may be the first month I skip.

  40. Looks so much better than last month. I cancelled after I got lip balm and morphe lipstick as two of my items.

    • O I was extremely upset that I also received those items so you are telling me that a $9 lipstick and that two lip balms totaling $7.50 count as 2 of my full sized items and then in my other bag I also received a lip balm I was so angry that is not acceptable at all that is one thing boxy has never done to me. I do not use chapstick I have not used chapstick in 10 years nor have I purchased it they are going in my children’s stockings and I’m still not happy about that

  41. Yes! I’m in!

    • I am so aggravated that my card number got stolen on thanksgiving and I had to wait until December 2nd for a new card and paid that day and mine still hasn’t even shipped. I would think 18 days is enough time to ship? Was hoping to have by Christmas…wasn’t impressed by this months ultimate anyway I think I will be canceling…it’s sad because I had high hopes for the ultimate 🤷🏻‍♀️

  42. I love that ruby palette! And the lipstick and the Purlisse sounds really nice! Looks really good this month!

  43. Wow, these are all great.

  44. Aw man. The ipsy plus bag isnt just plain marble. The two other bags are so pretty.

    • Ikr, that’s the same thing I said, the other two are so pretty because they’re all marble. Maybe I’ll be able to buy one as an add-on.

      • Funny… I feel the exact opposite. I hate the all marble ones and love this one. Lol.

    • I completely agree with you there I love the $12 bag and the ultimate but plus Is not as appealing at all I don’t care for it

  45. Everything is a thumbs up, with the exception of the eye shadow palettes (the colors are way too bold, for my liking). The lipstick and Purlisse item are my top two picks, of the bunch. Very nice spoilers.

  46. Excited to finally see spoilers. Hoping for the Purlisse eye cream as a choice, love the brown shades Huda palette too!! ❤
