  1. does anyone realize those make up brushes have a retail value of $154??? you can find them online for $22.00 via a google search. Come on IPSY dont be like Boxy with outrageously overinflated values.

  2. I chose the serum and used it for the first time today. It’s lovely! Silky, light, absorbs beautifully, and is cooling. Loving Ipsy selections.

  3. Just to let the ones know who picked the foundation. Its one of the best I’ve ever used and I’ve tried a ton. Drug store and high end but mostly high end bc I have acne and I need it to work. Its my all time favorite. I have dry skin and you don’t need a ton to get full coverage. Its very light and doesn’t cake. I’m so glad this was a choice this month and in light bc they only have about 4 shades I think. I kept buying it but haven’t since I ran out in September bc I have a bunch of other foundations that I need to use up and this one runs about $43 with tax. It is my holy grail.

    • I got the foundation as an add on and love it!

      • I’m so glad you love it! I added on fair since light wasn’t an add on option for me I guess bc that was my choice item. So I tried to get as many as I could for $12 a piece. The $25 price tag for the box was definitely worth it this month. 🙂

  4. This will be my 5th Ipsy month, my 4th with Ipsy plus. LOVE Murad!!! Went with that this time. Out of the 20 items in my 4 months with plus, maybe 4 duds. WAY worth the price of the subscription!! The skincare items are always my favorite. They send high quality full-size items and my choice item has always been worth about least twice what I pay for the whole box. Win Win Win!!!

  5. I paused on one of my 2 plus bags. If I unpause the other one it do I still get to pick one item (i did pick on my other plus bag)?

    • No, choice is over.

  6. Did they send an email about the choice being active? I’m just seeing this (2 days late). This is bad for me.

    • They never do. It’s just (almost) always on the 22nd. Sorry you missed it ☹

    • you should download their app. there’s a timeline on it that tells you when choice day is every month.

      • I don’t have the app, but I have the same timeline when I log in to my account.

  7. I chose the Murad because I have loved every product I have received from them and I specifically love their vitamin c cleanser.
    Hoping the MG champagne and rose palette from GBU is an add on for GBP….

  8. I signed back up for just February after seeing the spoiler. I picked the foundation and hope the shade matches me. I am also hoping to get either the serum or Murad and brush sets….

  9. I went with the foundation as I am currently set on SPF, I have plenty of serums and none of the makeup there really appealed to me. I almost chose the brushes but I am guessing I will get sent those. 🙂

    • Just to let you know I absolutely love this foundation. Its my all time favorite. Holy grail. So glad this was a choice!

  10. I debated between the Murad and the Dominique palette, and ultimately went with the Murad because I need to get better about using sunscreen and I hate doing it as a separate step… but I’m hoping the palette will work its way into my box anyway.

  11. I picked the palette.
    I will probably get the brush set because I like getting brushes and Ipsy’s pretty good about sending them.
    Not excited about any of the lip colors, but I will probably get one.
    I’m wary of Vitamin C products. The early ones were harsh for me.

  12. Oh, man, they suckered me in. I picked the Murad SPF moisturizer for my box…. and then I reactivated my old GBP account to also select the Wander Beauty.

    I’m also hoping to receive the Sweater Weather eye shadow palette. I have a pretty strong eye shadow preference on both accounts (based on reviews & profile settings), so I think my odds are decent. I’m jus nervous about how many Wanderer eye palettes they’ve had floating around lately.

  13. Well, the only thing that really appeals to me is the Belle en Argent lipstick, but if I pick that I won’t get the Touch in Sol Pretty Filter Velvet lipstick, and I’d love to try that.

    The Murad looked interesting until I saw it contains Oxybenzone, which is bad for coral reefs AND for people.

    I don’t get what is exciting about the Sweater Weather palette. I hate winter and am not very fond of pastels.

    I’m going to go with the Wander foundation, but I may end up pausing this month.

    • Oh wow I didnt know about oxybezone…why is it bad for humans? Please educate me 😁 would love to learn thanks in advance!

      • Oxybenzone and certain other chemical sunscreen ingredients kill reefs, which eventually hurt the earth. Hawaii bans the sale of certain chemical sunscreens inHawaii but it cannot stop those tourists bringing their own sunscreens so the reefs are still dying. Studies have shown that Oxybenzone can also cause hormone related cancers in human being.

      • They’re finding it is bad for fresh water bodies, too. My municipal water supply drains into Lake Michigan, so I refuse to use chemical sunscreens here, too. It’s bad for lakes and rivers, it needs to be banned immediately.

  14. I went with the Murad cream! Now I am waiting for the reveal and add ons to see if I can grab the palette and the wander foundation. Ipsy knows how to make me spend my money on things I really do not need!

  15. Was actually happy to see there was a few things I wouldn’t mind picking . The past few months there was only one or two exciting things to choose.
    I went with the foundation….I’ve had luck with the brand, it was my shade and the description spoke to what I look for in a foundation… foundations aren’t always common in boxes.
    I was debating between the foundation, that palette , murad and the serum.
    Hopefully I still get the palette or it’s an add on option.

  16. My choices were different…I didn’t have the serum or the Wander foundation for instance.

    That being said, this month was easy as I only wanted one of the choices: the Sweater Weather palette!

    • That palette is so pretty! I went with the Murad face cream. I hope I receive the palette, as well.

  17. I had planned to pick the Dominique palette, but I went with the Wander foundation since they had my shade. I’m hoping I’ll get the Dominique anyway, but I got the Huda Amethyst and Emerald palettes this month and the Viseart Golden Hour from Ipsy shopper so if I don’t I’m well stocked with new palettes anyway. Who am I kidding, I’ll probably buy it in add ons if it’s not in my bag, the addiction is real.

  18. I reactivated for the Murad and it let me choose right away.

    • Me too! thanks for posting this as I did not want the January bag!

  19. My mom and I get two bags of each level of Ipsy and share the items. Most of the time whenever we choose the same thing, we end up getting identical bags which isn’t as much fun, but at least we get the items we want. This month though we liked so many things we decided to pick different items in hopes we get two really different bags. Crossing fingers it works! I chose the Murad and mom chose one of the lippies. Love all the great items to choose from this month ❤️

  20. I chose the palette, though I was also very tempted by the Belle En Argent lipstick – I really love their matte formula. Crossing my fingers that if I don’t get it in my bag, it’ll at least be available as an add-on.

    Interestingly, I didn’t have the option to choose the Wander Beauty foundation. I assume because my shade wasn’t available?

    • Also, weirdly, when I visited the Flash Sale page after making my choice, it showed everything as sold out, but when I logged back onto Ipsy a little while later to update my profile, (almost) everything was back in stock! Which was nice for me (but bad for my wallet), because I ended up grabbing three $5 bundles: a Pixi mineral eyeshadow duo and SLMISSGLAM shader brush; a Wander highlighter and SLMISSGLAM face brush; and a concealer brush duo. Yay brushes!

  21. I ended up picking the serum. Hope I don’t regret it. I was going to choose the Murad, but read a lot of reviews about it causing breakouts. The Sunday Riley vitamin C KILLED my skin, so I didn’t want to take the chance.

    • Mel, I’m happy to inform you that you made a great choice! I got the Biorace as a replacement product a few months back and I love it so much! It’s a triple hyaluronic acid formula and gives a lot of hydration. Feels great on the skin, plays well with other products, has a nice light smell, absorbs well, not greasy, no residue, good ingredients. I could go on and on. I love it so much that I swapped for another, that I just received and I picked it for this month too! I’ll have about 8-9 months worth.😂 I have normal/dry skin, but I think oily people would like it too. Just a side note, that SR CEO moisturizer is horrible. It’s not likely the Vit C that caused you problems with SR, that particular formula is garbage and this is coming from someone who loves some of the SR products.😉

      • YAY! Thanks, Nicole! I’m super excited now. :o)

    • I feel your pain about the SR vitamin C and I often have issues with spf products breaking me out so I’m super cautious what I use now. I went with the foundation…hopefully that doesn’t break me out. LOL.

      • Do you find the mineral (zinc oxide) or physical (Avobezene, Oxybenzone, etc) sunscreens tend to break you out?

      • Sorry, I meant chemical, not physical

      • Honestly, I’m not exactly sure. I just know when I was a “kid” and my mom would slather whatever she had on hand on my face things would not go well (even before the additional hormones kicked breakouts into full force). As a teenager that made me even more self-conscious and for years and years I wouldn’t use sunscreen at all on my face…obviously not a good idea. And more recently I’ve avoided any foundations with spf because more times than not those irritate my skin too. All I know is that I was recommended EltaMD and that has served me very well and I’m actually going through a bottle of the Coola white tea kind and that doesn’t seem to bother my skin either.

      • Thanks for your reply. My (oily, breakout prone) skin doesn’t seem to be bothered by chemical sunscreens, but I’ve been trying to switch to zinc oxide sunscreens/makeup and the jury is out on whether it causes me to break out. I know zinc oxide isn’t non-comedogenic. I also haven’t found many products with zinc oxide that don’t make me super greasy later in the day or that sit well on my face. Ipkn BB Cream and Purlisse BB Cream are exceptions, in case anyone is looking for one. IT CC Cream is a runner up.

    • I got the serum a few months ago and I really like it. I use it as a primer.

    • I absolutely LOVE that Serum. I have 1 and 1/2 right now and picked it again for Feb. Definitely worth it

  22. I chose the foundation. I was thrilled to see it was the actual shade I matched to. I didn’t get the Becca foundation in Boxy so I was really hoping to try Wander Nude Illusion. Like others have said, maybe I’ll get lucky and still get Murad, those brushes or the sleep mask and not another eyeliner. Last month was a real let down so I’m hoping for the best.

    • I’m hoping we get to buy the foundation as an add on! The shade they had for me didn’t match…didn’t know that my profile wasn’t updated! So, I quickly took care of that problem. I am loving that subscriptions are putting foundations and concealers in the boxes now!!

  23. Yeah, this confirmed my ‘skip’ this month. Wander beauty foundation might have tempted me back in, but I’ve already checked the shade range, and there’s no match for me.
    Doing the regular bag instead and and I’m pretty excited for it! (Got to pick a Pur foundation sample in a great shade, and the bag is so much cuter!)

  24. Grabbed the wander. Been wanting to try it and actually really like most things I’ve tried from the brand. Hopefully I’ll get the murad too and I’ll be happy lol. Or the sweet chef masks!

    • Me too! I am on overload for most products but not foundation. Almost out.. and getting two this month ❤️

      • I picked Wander Beauty Foundation. First time getting one. Hope I get the sweater weather palette and Brushes in my box that would make my month.

  25. can you still pause/cancel after making choice?

    • Yes just do it by the 30th

  26. I love that Ipsy makes it sooooo easy to just skip a month. I wasn’t feeling this month’s Plus bag, so, easy peasy paused.

    • Yes and you can also reactive or sign up on choice day and get to choose an item. Love the add on’s too!

      • Thank you. I didn’t know you could reactivate Ipsy on choice day and still make a choice. I wanted to try the Wander Beauty foundation.

    • I agree I love that option. I don’t need five full size items every month, and it’s so simple to just skip online with zero fuss.

  27. Definitely skipping…again. I think I’m done with plus. Boxycharm is much better.

    • Yes, I’ve been consistently underwhelmed by Ipsy for the last 6 months. I still check the spoilers, but I’m losing interest in even that. Seriously mediocre on their best months with a lot of constant repeats that we were getting in our GBPs almost a year ago and downright dismal the rest of the time.

  28. It feels like you get the same times every time with Ipsy Plus. No that it’s not useful to get one face cream every month and a black eyeliner and lipstick every other month (plus a bland eyeshadow palette for diversity) but I was hoping for more bold choices. The cosmetics world is so big… For example, from Causebox I got a steam mask and hair vitamins – something I haven’t heard of before and it was a big win!

  29. I went with serum. Looks like it is new and interesting to try.

    • It is a very good hydrating serum, one of the top HA serums I’ve tried. I was thrilled for the opportunity to pick up another as my choice!

      • I agree!! This serum is amazing, and by far my favorite! I ran out and my other serum doesn’t come close to moisturizing like this one! I’m thrilled I got to choose it!!

  30. I took the palette. It’s intended as a gift anyway.

  31. Well I am skipping a month for the first time. Nothing here for me.

  32. I went with the L’eau Hydrating Serum! It’s a triple hyaluronic acid serum and it is superb! Seriously, don’t over look this one because it is lesser known, it is a beautiful product. Ipsy sent me one a few months back as a replacement for an item that arrived spoiled and half full. I loved it so much that I swapped for another and still picked yet a third this month because that’s how good it is. Always happy to have back ups of great products!

    • I chose it, too!

      • Me too!

    • I was on the every other month plan but changed it last night so I could get Feb plus. Actually love the Murad. Been waiting for them to include it in Plus. Chose it because couldn’t risk it not available as an ad on, which I’ve noticed they haven’t in the past. I was tempted by the Brushes and palette tho 😓

  33. I picked the Murad in both the regular and Plus bags. The rest is just gravy…

    • Did they send an email about the choice being active? I didn’t receive one and I’m just seeing this email. Great.

  34. Thank you! I am excited about getting foundation!

  35. I thought about upgrading to the Plus this month just so I could get that Murad. Now I’m kicking myself for not doing it. Hopefully, it will be available as an add on.

    • You can still sign up and choice it. I just signed up today for the regular bag and got to pick my item

      • Oooh! Thanks for letting me know. I would love that Murad!

      • Paula, how long did it take? I just signed up, but it still isn’t letting me choice anything 😭

      • Randie, email customer service NOW and ask them to approve you for GBP today so you can choose. Worked for me.

      • Dea, do you have their email? I can’t find it anywhere on the site. Thanks!

      • Aw bummer it didn’t work for me. They did end up canceling my subscription though so at least that worked out.

        But now I’m debating if I still want it in the off chance I’d still get the Murad lol

      • It popped after a few steps. I’ve done it several times and it always worked? Yes contact CS!

      • Try support at ipsy dot com

      • I finally got in touch with customer service and they said I couldn’t choose until next month, so I guess I’m just going to cancel the bag and hope the Murad’s available as an add-on since that’s the only thing I really want.

      • So customer service said the same to me and canceled it for me. Since canceling it said January was last bag, I took a chance and reactivated based on a different comment I saw here. This allowed me to choose. Yay! So maybe worth a shot if you’re still wanting it

      • Cassie, I am going through the same process (specifically I tried to activate glam bag plus when I already get glam bag regular then just asked to cancel when the email support team said I couldn’t choose my glam bag plus item) and would still like to try to choose the Murad. How exactly did you reactivate a second time and get the choice option to work? Thanks for the help!

      • Mia, please update us on what happens. I have emailed customer service for the same reason (only for the Ultimate), and still waiting to hear back. Choice is only open for 24 hours, so hopefully we both have time to get things resolved to our satisfaction. Good luck!

      • Mia, after I had costumer service cancel my GBP account, I went under the GBP page. It stated something along the lines of it being canceled and January was my last box (Despite never havOmg it before). This is where I’m a little fuzzy, but somewhere on that page there is a button to get the GBP. I think it was right under the note of January being my last? Basically your reactivating.

        After clicking it I reactivated it and followed the confirmation prompts. It shows you the detail page of when the box is shipping etc. I had to exit out of that and re-enter the GBP tab. When I did it said I could make my choice.

        Good luck! Hope this works too for you, I was so excited for Murad- well worth the price of the GBP

      • Customer service hasn’t replied to my email yet about cancelling my glam bag plus. I’m guessing by the time they reply the choice window will have closed. I’m also wondering if the issue is that this is my first time trying to subscribe to the glam bag plus. Previously I had only been subscribed to the glam bag regular. Honestly I originally want to cancel the regular for February but I’m worried I won’t get the add-ons I ordered separately last week, I don’t think they’ve shipped yet.

      • But thank you all for the advice! I will update if something works out that might be helpful.

      • It was my first time with the GBP too. I’ve only had my regular glam bag for four months, so I wasn’t sure how it works if you tried to cancel as opposed to costumer service.
        Hopefully it worked out!

      • One thing that’s hard about Ipsy is their customer service is so erratic. I get totally different results each time, and then see people on here who get way better help than me other times. Wish all their people were consistently helpful (or unhelpful lol)

      • Several hours after I emailed Ipsy, I received an email telling me to go back into my account and try again. I was able to choose, but the item that I wanted most (the Champagne and Rose palette) was no longer available. This was my first time subbing to Ultimate so that may have been a factor in this hiccup, but I’m grateful that CS was able to fix it in time for me to choose. I ended up choosing the Goldfadden eye cream, which gets good reviews.

    • I had a hard time contacting them and actually getting in contact with them before. If you are still having issues, contact them on twitter.

  36. Chose the brushes. The Murad was tempting but I need a higher SPF.

  37. I chose the brush set because the reviews on the palette were not great and I already have that Murad…

  38. I chose the Murad item. I love their products. Very pleased with this selection.

  39. I signed up for GBP this week just so I could snag that amazing $65 Murad sunscreen for $25 AND get four full-size items free. You’d better believe I clicked that “select” button this morning without delay! So happy.

    I’ll probably suspend/cancel GBP once I get the February bag, but even if the other four items are, say, four black eyeliners, I still got an amazing sunscreen I love at a huge discount (and can win brownie points with my wonderful step-granddaughter and her college buddies for gifting them four black eyeliners!) LOL

    • Love this! 🙂 It’s so easy to be disappointed with Ipsy. If the choice item doesn’t make the bag worth $25 to you, then skip the bag, that’s my philosophy.

    • Dea do you know for sure it’s a full size and not a deluxe sample? We (my mom and I) get two boxes at our house to share and considered getting the Murad in both.

      • GBP is only full-size items. Ultimate and regular ipsy bags include samples. Or I wouldn’t have done it!

  40. At least I’ll get the Murad and be happy if the rest of the bag is a dud.

  41. I went with the foundation but still may cancel!!
