My subscription to the GB is expiring soon and I will not renew. It seemed to me that after I paid for a year long subscription my bag items became very small and I received a lot of things I did not want or could not use. They really don’t go by your profile on items you do not want to receive.

The last bag I got was the mauve quilted one , it’s really soft, but it sort of reminds me of those ‘Pajama Grams’ you see advertised on TV. Personally, I don’t need a makeup bag sent every month.

If I ever decide to resub, I will go with the monthly renewal.

I also wonder when our bags are held back and then when you complain they release them. It makes me think that maybe they are having a cash flow problem and only release them once there is enough cash to do so.


I was a subscriber last year and they never had add-one at that point so I have no idea how that works. Is it that you’re able to add on any of the items offered for a month? So if say you didn’t get something you wanted when you see the selections they chose, you’d be able to add it on?


Sometimes it’s items from the current month, plus other products.


I appreciate the gift, but I do miss the days when the surprise birthday gift was a full EM Michelle Phan eyeshadow palette and the bags were SO creative, cute and pretty. I used to look forward to the bags, but they are kind of boring now. Hoping they step it up soon and get back to the cute bags.


I am buying the GBP and Ultimate just because the free product and Add On Promotion sweetened the deal.

But why have the GBP bags been so ugly lately? Last month’s was almost as small as a regular glam bag and wasn’t the quilted material.


that’s strange my GBP bag was huge & the whole thing was quilted.


That would be the Ultimate Bag


Hey guys, does anyone know when Choice is? Thanks 😊 .


Feb 24th!


Thank you!!!!


This is nice although I don’t plan on buying any add-ons. I saw the makeup bags during the Ipsy live stream on Facebook and I don’t like the plus bag at all. It looks cheap which is too bad because it looks cute in photos. The regular glam back is much cuter.


Yay Ipsy!


If you sign up for glam bag ultimate today will feb or March be the first month??


Did you by any chance subscribe today? I want to subscribe but want to make sure I get the March bag and not February’s.


March! I just did and that’s what it said they are going to send me.

Wow that is a nice way to show subscribers that you appreciation them. Plus all month long. Maybe other subscription boxes will jump on that application train too….Thank you too MSA.❤


Happy what is coming in March. Thinking of getting UGB this time as a add on. I noticed Feburary plus and the March one are smaller like the regular bag. My February plus was the best, loved everything


I’m happy about the free items in bags and the $2 credit but do not like the way they are advertising it, it’s very misleading with the whole starting at $1 gimic.


For those who have both a Glam bag and Glam bag Plus subscription, are you able to purchase 10 add-ons? As in 5 add-ons per subscription?


Yes! 😊


Yes, that’s correct. 5 add ons for each.


Thank you!


I believe the answer is yes, I remember checking out on one bag and then I’d still have the option to charge for more under the other.


Thank you Leslie !!!




question for anyone to answer, please! if you get the basic ipsy bag, do you get to participate in add-ons or do you have to have an ultimate or glam bag plus? thank you!


Yes, you get to participate no matter which bag you get!


thank you! anyone know when to buy to get march, participate in add-ons and not be charged for feburary?

It’s probably coincidental, and Ipsy probably planned this for awhile, but part of me can’t help but wonder if they’re not taking advantage of Boxycharm’s subscriber cancellations.

I look forward to the March bags.


The $1 add-ons and add-on credit are the most exciting to me!

I hope by then my account gets to be one of the lucky ones in beta testing that get to add more than 5 add-ons!


I think it’s not five add-ons for $1 each. The way I read it is that they will give us each a $2 credit, making the net cost of our first sample size add-on $1. If we choose to use it for a full size $12 add-on, it would cost us $10. The rest would be regular price. Basically, they’re giving us a $2 coupon to use for March add-ons.


Yes; it’s a $2 coupon.


Yeah, I kind of skimmed the info page. After watching the ipsy live, it definitely seemed more like they count the $2 credit as making a $1 add-on from a $3 add-on. Which is weird. Just advertise it as a $2 credit, man.


I understood it the same way as Dia did. Each one of the subscribers will get a $2 coupon. Add ons will have the regular prices $3, $12, etc.


Hell yea!


I’m glad they’re doing something extra next month. This month was a bit of a mess for me. My Ultimate appears to have never left their warehouse, but I still had to wait 10 days until I contacted them (today!). I had opted out of mascara and eyeliner in my Plus bag and yet I got an eyeliner this month! Hoping that they get back to me quickly and rectify things.


I was wondering is there a place on the website to see what you opted out of? I opted out on one or two of the bags so long ago that I don’t remember what I chose.


I don’t think there is. I kept my email from when they confirmed. Fat lot of good it did me, they were sorry, you might get them depending on your profile and what item you choose each month. To quote “based on your other reviews and quiz selections this box combination was the best one for you overall.” I would have loved sheet masks and since I always rate them high I am not sure why they felt an eyeliner was the best thing for me. They also told me to just keep waiting on my Ultimate that hasn’t been delivered or had any tracking since it’s still marked as pending.


Good luck, Aidan!


I got a free item this month.


Me too. A floss lip gloss


I was notified that I would get a free item this month, but did not receive anything other than my 5 bag items and my 2 add-ons. So I’m not getting too excited about the free item for March.


What was it?


I also received a free item and had no idea it was coming. It was the PUR foundation sample. Really happy to receive it.


I also got a free item in February.
It was a hand lotion.
I think it’s nice that Ipsy is offering such specials in March to be more inclusive to everyone.


I’m skipping GBP atm cause I only see one item I am interested in. Wish there was more to motivate me. I’m waiting to see GBU spoilers. I also wish we could skip bags and months with BC. I am this close to canceling my Luxe and Premiere with all the shady hoopla going on.


I’m leaving BC. If they ever get themselves ‘right’, I may resub. For now, Ipsy is the one.


Same. BC has been shady for awhile. I’m not surprised that all this stuff is coming out.


Maybe you should call them? Maybe you got someone’s package. The right thing to do would be to ask if they want it back


Did anyone else get a duplicate glam bag for feb on accident? First time this has happened 🙂


I did. I had to check a couple of times because I may have um, imbibed a bit and was questioning my reality at the time.


Ipsy makes these types of errors all the time. Just try to remember this moment the next time Ipsy sends you a “replacement” for a damaged item that’s a completely different product, or gives you a teeny partial refund, or forgets to include one of your add-ons, etc. 😉




No, mine was actually missing. Maybe you got mine, haha!


Anyone knows when will choice be?


Doubtful since there were the exact same items in them (only one of which I like that was my choice item)


Oh, yay! This is exciting. Congratulations, Ipsy and thank you.
