  1. Why am I not able to add the add ins?

  2. I skipped my GBP this month and added on two $12 items to my regular bag: the Touch in Sol lipstick and the TokyoMilk hand lotion. Yeah, the lipstick retails for only $4 more, but I get free shipping AND save money from not buying a bunch of other things on the Touch in Sol website to get free shipping. I’m excited about the hand lotion, it’s very much needed this winter, and the packaging is gorgeous. I almost missed the add-ons. I checked my phone last night and had about 12 minutes to select them. I would have gotten the playa hair mist but it was sold out.

  3. I hope i at least get my February box. I didn’t get my january one. So after 10 days, i had them resend a new January one. Still haven’t received it. It wasn’t just me. Lots of people said they never got their January bags. I paid for add ons too. If i don’t get my February box either I’m going to unsubscribe. But usps is also at fault. Usps is a pathetic excuse of a mail service at this point. I wish people would stop relying on them so much when they lose packages so frequently. Sorry for the rant. Im just a little fed up.

    • I never received my December bag. It isn’t USPS, it’s FedEx that screwed up December. It never got as far as USPS. IPSY went back to DHL for my January order and my bag arrived quickly. I don’t believe the carriers are the issue ultimately. Ipsy appears to be a little overwhelmed since adding Ultimate to the line up. I shipped over 400 packages via USPS throughout the Summer. I was on a selling binge after clearing my attic. All arrived to their destinations without incident. I really have few problems with the regular mail service.

    • It’s probably not USPS. Ipsy uses the lowest bottom-dollar shipper possible — sometimes FedEx & sometimes DHL. I’ve had times when DHL was like, “oh, we’ve handed over the package to USPS!” but that was blatantly not true (last June, when Ipsy had to resend packages to what seemed like hundreds of us). Plus, Ipsy prints a label, then counts your package as “shipped” when in reality, the shipping company never received your package (someone who received the June mystery box received a package with somebody else’s address label underneath the sticker with their address on it).

  4. I skipped Plus and Ultimate this month hoping I could add on any FS items I really wanted. Thank goodness because there was only one I was even tempted to buy. It was that gorgeous Touch In Sol lipstick but it’s only $16 retail and they wanted $12 for it. I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. I’m telling myself colors never look exactly the same in person so it might not be as perfect as it looks anyway. Plus it’s from a relatively new brand that keeps showing up in sub boxes so maybe I will get it in one of those or in a pop up or add on sale.

    I did add the max number of $3 add-ons and probably would’ve grabbed a few more. The one item I would’ve really loved was to get was that dark purple Mischo nail polish. Gorgeous color and bottle. $20 retail and actually looks worth it after checking out their website where it’s sold out along with most of their other really stunning colors, yet it’s in the regular bag. In Plus and Ultimate there are full size items like the lipstick I mentioned and sheet masks under $20. Makes no sense.

    Surprisingly all the nail polishes were gorgeous this month and despite there being 4 of them I didn’t get any. I get one almost every month but usually not my favorite of the colors for that month. This month I couldn’t have gone wrong regardless of which one I got. Oh well. My bag certainly could’ve been worse.

    I added the Frog serum, Pur foundation, Hey Honey tint/foundation, one of the liquid lips and a lipstick. Spent almost $17 on just add ons so I am relieved I took a chance and skipped Plus and Ultimate. Especially with Boxy’s pop up sale coming up.

    • I do wish they added nail polish to the add ons. I think the Smith and Cult was the only one I ever seen.

  5. Yes i wish “she” would reveal her bag at the top of this same post so it would be easier to guess which ones aren’t available as add ons because she already got them in her bag…
    I am guessing she is on her glam bag plus box..

    Correct me if I’m wrong…i only get one bag…but if you have all 3 you would have only “not available” the items that are already in the box you are currently adding extras to…the items in the other two don’t matter…almost like 3 separate accounts because they have their own tab??

    • Yes, that’s mostly accurate. But sometimes random things don’t show up in people’s add-ons (or Choice) for no discernable reason. For instance, I can remember being shown only 1 shade of Huda palettes when I knew there were more!

    • Since the writer is Liz, and in her profile goes by she/her. Then it is “She”.

      • Considering its Megan that does the reviews for ipsy, ipsy plus, and ultimate wouldnt it make more sense that Megan would be the she not Liz anymore. Although I wish it was still Liz I miss her reviews.

      • I don’t think Megan actually controls MSA’s Ipsy accounts. It seems like she doesn’t do choice items, & at least once, she was not given relevant information about a bonus item being included in the box due to an Ipsy error.

      • You may be right but that makes zero sense to me. If the profile belongs to Liz then the bag should suit her more and she should do the reviews.

      • I miss Liz’s reviews too!

    • So true! I have a separate reg. GB account and that one should show all the $18 and $12 add-ons that are products in plus and ultimate bags. Since I don’t have a GBP or GBU on that account, none are not available. MSA should do the same or at least split up their accounts so that there is not overlap.

      I screenshot and I’ve tried posting the links imgur here before my posts are always deleted or not approved. Oh well.

  6. I skipped February at the last minute for Boxycharm 😳🙌👍

  7. I grabbed the Pillow Spray ($12) and Farmacy Cleansing balm ($12).

    • You did so good! I bought the farmacy cleanser the last time they had it. I have enough to hold me for a while, so I left it in case others wanted it this time, and I added the pillow spray this time

      • Awesome!!

  8. I downgraded to just one bag and kept the regular. I was excited to have the sweater weather palette as a $12 add on because it was the main thing I wanted to try had I kept plus.

  9. I wasn’t billed successfully my funds don’t hit my card til tomorrow and it’s like that every month yet on the 3rd when payment goes through I’m always able to see the reveals and choose add ons! Has anyone else experienced this?

    • I was billed successfully, but I changed my card yesterday and it won’t let me see my bags or choose add-ons. I’m so annoyed right now

  10. I spent $21 in add-ons in addition to my $12 bag and TWO $25 bags! 😅

    – Viseart eye shadow
    – Lapland lip balm
    – Skylar body lition
    – Dr. Frog moisturizer
    – Beauty Crop powder brush
    – Pure Brazilian hair mask
    – Half Caked lip gloss in Semi-Charmed

    I’m SUPER stoked to try a Viseart shadow, & I’ve loved the other Pure Brazilian products I’ve sampled via Ipsy.

  11. Has anyone else had this happen. For my regular glam bag, it says they are still choosing my products, but the time line doesn’t have any dates underneath. I emailed customer service and they said I would have been able to get add ons if I had been billed successfully yesterday, which would be fine except that I was billed yesterday. They haven’t responded back.

    • Yes!!! I am having the same issue. And I was successfully billed. I’m so annoyed. I was really looking forward to seeing my bag today

      • I just logged on and my glam bag reveal was up. I got to do add ons too.

  12. Great selection of add-ons this month, but it appears ipsy is moving towards more $18 add-ons for their pricier items. The Murad moisturizer used to be a $12 item.

    • $12 for the Murad is much more reasonable, especially since it’s not a serum or spf, and it’s only $42 RV. You can buy it on ebay for $15 (from trusted sellers). I was going to add it on until I checked, then bought it on Ebay instead.

  13. Me: I have so much product, I need to skip add-ons.
    Also Me: Maxes out on add-ons. 🤦🏻‍♀️

    (Not sure if it’s because MSA got the items in their bag, or If it’s because they sold out, but this morning I had 4 $18 options and definitely more $12 options, including the DC sweater palette.)

    • MSA has the regular, plus, and ultimate bags, so whatever she will be receiving in any of those bags won’t be available as add-ons.

    • I have 3 account, and a total of 6 bags (2 of each). All of my accounts had different add ons. One barely had any in the 18 and 12 (like above) and 2 had a ton. Weird! The three things I was hoping they’d have as add ons, they didn’t. But there’s always trading! Lol

      I liked my bags a lot, but with multiple accounts I of course get some duplicates. Hoping to use some of those to trade for the natures cartel, maelle lip tints, and peach makeup geek 🤞🏻

  14. Their app isn’t working ATM, darn it!

  15. I don’t recall my $12 selections but I only had those two $18 choices. I was on around 9am cst.

    • I like the add-ons this month!! I could’ve picked more than $5, but in the end needed to save money. Also like my bag this month!!

    • It doesn’t matter what time it is anymore. IPSY will show all the available options to you even if they are sold out.

  16. I had waaay more choices for $18 & $12

    • She probably got those in her box, which she didn’t show her reveal. So they’re not going to show up again in add ons.

    • Same for me.

    • They were up at around 7:45 EST maybe that is all thats left now.
