  1. They should add the regular glam bag bag to the add ons. I would totally pay $3 to get that added to my GBP

    • ~agree..!! i really like tht bag too..!!

  2. When is regular Ipsy choice for March 2020? I skipped February and it won’t show me

    • The 24th

  3. ipsy just posted the bonus items in ins

    • I can’t find it ): what are they?

  4. Does anyone know when choice for March is? And why has there been no product spoilers?!

    • I noticed on the app below Track Glam Bag, there’s a timeline. Choose a product is on the 24th.

  5. Ipsy has a new mystery bag for Valentine’s Day!

  6. Why are the middle bags so boring? February didn’t get the same quilted pattern, and now March doesn’t get the bling? What the heck??? Do they want people in that category to downsize to the smaller one?? Just for a cuter bag??? Disappointing, month after month.

    • I actually thought this trio were some of the most unappealing (IMO) that I’ve seen in the past 2-3 years lol
      I guess it all just comes down to personal tastes…cause if I had to pick one? I’d take the middle. Pretty much anything involving the word ‘bling’ and I’m out lol

      • Agree

      • I agree Laura!

      • Agree

      • Don’t get me wrong, just to clarify, I’m not saying every bag needs bling. I’m saying be consistent with the material for all 3 bags, like they are consistent with colors and theme. If the other 2 are crushed velvet, don’t make the Plus bag out of vinyl. I actually loved the material for the February bag for Ultimate. Love the feel and touch. Can’t keep my hands off it! Loving all the Ultimate designs. February, if they kept the Plus bag the same material as other 2, it would have been perfect. Well, I guess they are not keeping same color scheme in this one. No yellow in Plus. Lol. Oh well, consider the bag a bonus I guess. Lol

    • I think that the Plus bag is the least ugly and has somewhat of a more useful design.

    • How exciting…. I love surprises!

    • I actually love the middle bag. I am keep the subscription solely for the bag. All three bags are awesome in my opinion. I don’t really care for the bling bling stuff. That is just my opinion.

    • I actually did the opposite and am skipping my regular with the bling, which I dislike, and upping to Plus, which I had been wanting to splurge on a month of for a while, since this is the cutest bag I have ever seen from ipsy imo

    • Agree!

    • I got the gb and gbp last month, and am KICKING myself for not getting the ultimate as an add-on. The little quilted one is so cute!

  7. I am SO disappointed in IT Cosmetics right now… I have their cc cream in medium and tan. I mix the two according to my shade at the moment. At this point in the year, medium works just fine by itself for 2-3 months. So, when Ipsy had their full size foundation as add ons for only $12?! I grabbed one in medium. I thought it would be perfect because I use that shade the most and the ingredients in both products are close enough to mix if needed. But, the medium fountain is not even close to the same shade as the medium cc cream. I did take the time to look at IT Cosmetics website to be sure before purchasing to make sure. Yesterday, I did a side by side swatch test on my hand and face. 😳 Oh! No! The medium cc cream is darker and has pink to neutral undertones. The foundation is yellow! Yellow!!! Not at all what IT Cosmetics claims! I did put it on, but no! I look sick! Jaundiced! I took it off and started over by mixing in some tan cc cream. The formulas blend well together but the medium foundation has so much yellow in it! It’s completely unusable for me. Thankfully I only spent $12 on it. Now I’m stuck with a full size foundation I can’t use…

    • Reach out to Ipsy. They may be able to help with at least a credit. Good luck!

      • Thank you. I appreciate it, but it was a few months back. I doubt there’s anything they can do. It was $12 verses the $39 it costs from IT Cosmetics. It’s not ipsys fault that it Cosmetics shades aren’t the same throughout their products.

      • You’re welcome! I belt hey will help even if some time has passed. Worth the try!

      • I think it’s at least worth the time to bring it to their attention. Both IT Cosmetics and Ipsy, just so they’re aware.

      • ~tht is a great idea..!! ~i hve had two situations which rquired custmr service…they answred in a cple hrs(but garentees w/in 24)…both times w/in a cple hours.. & was eager to help w both situations…& mailed my products w/in two days..!! ~i totally give props to Ipsys cs….!!

      • Huh?!

    • I’m sorry to hear it 😕 that’s definitely something I’ve noticed with It Cosmetics, inconsistency in colouring across the board. Not only that but their complexion products oxidize like crazy on me. I literally can’t wear any of their cc creams…and I tried mixing/matching all kinds of combinations. It’s just like their skin products hate my skin!

      • I’m sorry to hear that. I love a few of their products but not all of them. I absolutely love their secret sauce moisturizer, but their bye bye Undereye cream is SO weird! I saw someone doing an unboxing for Macy’s? I think? Maybe Sephora??? The sample of it is tiny but there’s a lot of packaging. A lot! The YouTuber’s sample of the IT Cosmetics bye bye Undereye cream had dried out in the pot and it came out whole. It bounced like a half of a bouncy ball! 😳 I’m not using the rest of mine. I’m starting to pay more attention to ingredients. I have tried so many different products over the last few years, but there are still a few things that are still my favorite. I have my go to blush & mascara, both are Avon and there’s nothing else that can replace either one of them. I know my blush is talc, but at least there’s no aluminum in it and I’ve been wearing it for like 30 years! I have one other by Tarte but it still doesn’t perform as well as my Avon one.
        I’ve been amazed at how many different brands and types of skincare products I’ve been able to try. For my body, I do have to stick with everything being 100% fragrance free and hypoallergenic. My face? Not so much… Except purlisse. I don’t understand it, but every single item from that brand has caused some type of immediate reaction. I simply won’t ever touch their products again. But my face will tolerate the chemicals in it Cosmetics? 😂
        I’m not at all upset with Ipsy. I think I will shoot them a quick email and include pictures so they know that IT Cosmetics products aren’t the same shades throughout. I’m definitely saying something to IT Cosmetics. They aren’t high end, but they’re not cheap either. Such a huge shade difference!

    • I get the ultimate ipsy. I used to be so excited to get it! Now not at all. I pay $50. A month and the glambag plus is receiving better stuff. I use It cc cream too. I knew it was to good to be true. I only bought the $3. One. You can add dark. When your darker in the summer. Sorry 💔

      • That’s why I buy the cc cream in tan and medium. I showed my husband the two tubes (cc cream in medium and fountain in medium) side by side and he could see the difference. He even said the foundation looks more yellow. He asked if I could mix it. I put some of both on my hand and he was like WOW! I did add tan to both and even swatched on my face. My husband said he can see why I’m upset about it. I don’t normally talk makeup with my husband like that. I might ask him if he likes something or not… So, he knows I’m really not happy about it.
        I have not emailed IT Cosmetics yet. I did notice that their website seems updated and much more descriptive of shades and undertones. So, medium isn’t neutral anymore? Funny. When I bought the cc cream in medium it was. Regardless, if it’s the same brand, medium should be medium. It’s very obviously not.

    • You can easily sell it Cosmetics foundation on Mercari, quickly, for more than 12.

  8. So, once in awhile, Ipsy just randomly selects subscribers to choose something or get something extra. After ALL these years, I finally got that pop up for an extra item in my February Glambag. When I clicked on it, it quickly flashed that it would be the F.A.R.A.H. 160F face brush. I got that in my January Glambag, don’t mind a second one. But, it will be interesting to see what we get.
    This post says our extra item for March will be sample size and based on our profiles. Again, it will be interesting to see see…

    • I got that pop up when I was choosing my ipsy for this month. My glam bag plus arrived today with an extra item: a tube of Cela Creme de la Creme. Looks interesting, but I will have to find my readers to see what it says. I need to buy a cheapo pair of readers to just keep with my stash.

      • I love that stuff! I’m almost out. Got it in a FFF.

      • I just opened mine from FFF and it’s been a miracle for my winter hands!
        I don’t know that I could ever justify $30 on it, but if it’s a $12 add on I will snag another tube for sure!

      • That was the “extra” item I got too was the Cela Crem del la Crem cream. I had two Ipsy Regular bags each month and cancelled the one that had the pop up of an extra randomly selected person to get a free item. I remembered after I cancelled. I emailed Ipsy and asked about the item…even though I had cancelled and they sent me the free item by itself. Props to Ipsy for they always respond quickly the few times I have reached out. I had a shattered Huda palette and they responded and sent a replacement in less than a couple of hours of my email. That is just my experience though…it is very interesting about people opinions on the bags. I hated the Feb regular and ultimate bag but like the plus and I’m feeling the same about March, lol! I did end up liking my regular bag though after I got my hands on it, lol!

    • They’re doing that because everyone’s complaint and cansrling. Boxy has horrible customer service. But much better boxes

  9. OOOH what a cute bag set!

  10. Thanks Ipsy. Wish I could opt out of black eyeliner. I have it as a low preference, and still have received 3 or 4 consecutively.

    • Have you emailed them? You can opt out of two things. I opted out of mascaras and nail polishes about a year ago, and have not received any since then.

      • It’s not a guarantee, though. I opted out of highlighters and bronzers and have received both since they instituted the choice option.

      • I’ve been desperate to avoid bronzers and highlighters, and always had them as rarely on my profile, along with the companies most likely to have them not marked as brands I love/would like to try. This time I made bronzers and highlighters all sometimes and marked a bunch of brands that use them (since I have literally never ONCE gotten any of the brands I marked, I realized). So maybe they’ll stop shoving those at me if they think I already like them. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      • I totally forgot I opted out of lip liner and brows! Which is probably why I’ve never received either one! Lol

    • me too…two in two months…& previouy four months ago..& i nevr get the “gel crayon” as i perfer & spoke of in my profile…its always a black liquid pen…:(…maybe if the sent othr colors, it would peek my intrest, but she’s rght, (@ least im w her), enough when it comes to the black eyelinr… their r so many othr
      options to throw in the bag…@ least it looks lile it whn they show the whole gbp collection.. i will say they’ve made some pretty gd skin care choices lately…!!!(ddnt wnt to end on a negitive note..)

      • They probably don’t understand you.

  11. Everyone is going to receive an Eyeko eyeliner in…wait for it…..BLACK!

    • LOL. No doubt.

  12. I would so love for Ipsy to do a collaboration on the bags again like they did with Thursday Friday so long ago. Maybe one month they could do Vera Bradley (and give subscribers a choice of 3 patterns to choose from) and another they could get Fossil. And then for a fun bag set in the Summer. Are you listening Ipsy? 😘

    • As long as we’re collabing, why not collaborate with Chanel on a bag?

      • Or Louis Vuitton… Or Chanel

      • It is nice that they are sending an extra sample… And I appreciate being able to select one item. I chose the Skin Regimen Night Detox for a recent bag. Regret that one… my face broke out like I was sent back to the 80s…. in the trash it went.😩

    • Wow! You want them to give us a bag worth 3 times the sub? Good luck with that.

      • Twas a joke, friend.

      • I agree…I feel that the bag is worth $5-$8 and then the samples are each about $1 if you only have to pay $12/month. The samples during add ons are $3 each! I mean you can choose exactly what add on you would like, but I wish people understood that $12 is a great deal and if you are not happy…look for another service. There have been some months I didn’t love recently, but then February and March look great!

  13. Wow that’s really nice of Ipsy for doing that!

  14. If you skip a month, you are scheduled to receive the following months bag and are eligible for choice selection on the regularly scheduled day.

    I hope this posts in the proper location. I’m scrolled to the top of the post when I click reply

  15. I really like the plus bag. I skipped plus for Feb so I feel good about committing to it for March even if it’s just for the bag.

  16. I was offered an extra product last month to be included in my February bag. I hope it’s something fun.

  17. A week or so ago when I opened the ipsy app it asked me if I’d like to receive an extra product. But I thought it was for feburary like they did last year…

    • I got the same thing for one of my Ipsy accounts (right before I was going to cancel my subscription). It said I was randomly selected to receive an extra item in my February bag. I never got that for my other Ipsy subscription. All I can say is it looks like Ipsy is working hard to win back the customers who were about to take their money elsewhere. Thank you Ipsy!

  18. A free Tetris eye palette or Betty Boop for all! 😂😉

    • Beth,
      With my luck, I’ll be getting a Betty Boop black magic marker eyeliner!

    • I would love the Tetris eye palette

      • I have the Tetris eye palette from a previous bag and I love it!

    • Right!?! You can get those in bulk along with Gigi for around $3 each on ebay now.

  19. Thank you MSA for the update and thank you Ipsy for the extra product. I’m happy to hear this news. 🙂

  20. This is so new nice of ipsy to do! Plus, the Glam bag is beautiful!!

  21. I was hoping only those of us who didn’t get invited to get gift this month would get one in March but I guess everyone gets one .

    • So negative.

    • I was hoping the same. It’s not being negative, it’s being fair. How is it fair that SOME people got a free gift last month, and then when the rest of us finally get one, those first people get ANOTHER one. Either we all get it every time, or they miss out this time like we did last time.

    • I agree it’s not fair! How do they pick who gets free gifts and who doesn’t and how do they think it’s okay to do that? I’d understand if it was a loyalty thing and only people who have been subbed for a certain amount of time got it.

      • I agree. If it was for people who’ve been subscribed for a certain amount of time, or maybe had a certain amount of consecutive orders (no skipping months), that would be different. However, if this was just a random thing they did, without reason, then that’s not fair at all.

      • I have been subscribed since they first started and have never skipped a month and have never been included when they do free gifts.
        So I am not really sure what system they went off of.
        I agree that it should be separated fairly throughout.
        Especially for people who have been with them since the very beginning.
        JMO though, I am happy for everyone who got something extra.
        Maybe I should stop spending by money with them or start complaining and I will get free stuff. lol

      • I’ve been with them for over 5 years on an annual sub and never get any surveys or extras. I thought it might be because of having the annual subscription. I can’t really go anywhere for a while. 😉 But I also don’t complain. I’ve gotten just a few damaged items in all these years, and I just asked for a replacement for those, but never complained. I would think they would give gifts to those that have had a lot to legitimately complain about as well as those that have stuck around. This could also be a stunt to get everyone to stay hoping for a gift. 🙂

      • I know my Ipsy yearly anniversary has always been February, maybe it’s that month for the people who have the same?

      • You guys are such babies.

      • No one cares what you think. Take the negativity elsewhere, thanks.

  22. Wow, for once the Plus bag is the least ugly and has a useful design!
    (Assuming the snap works)

  23. I hope it’s a full size product for the plus and ultimate bags. I’m not too fond of deluxe and sample size products that you get for free anywhere else.

    • The post specifically says that it will be sample sized. I would love to know where people get free sample sizes of all these different brands. Maybe if I lived in New York or California or something, I would get these, but living in a very rural state where I don’t even have a local Sephora, I can’t obtain free samples all over the place. I’m thankful for what I get in my monthly subscriptions.

      • Ulta often has gift with purchases for online orders. Sometimes, these GWPs are quite nice. The last time I placed a $65 order, I received a velvet bag with 30pc of samples (about 1/2 of which were just single use packets) and a 3pc mini fragrance set.

      • Omg I got that velvet bag as a GWP from Ulta too (I got the blue one) and it was so awesome! It’s so roomy I’m using it as my makeup bag now. And the samples were really good as well!

      • Thank you for the reply. I do get in on some GWPs with Ulta whenever I can. I don’t know – I thought the original post made it sound like people were just walking around getting free samples thrown at them. Lol! And obviously we get little samples with Sephora orders, too.

      • I live in a large city with three Sephoras and at least two Ultas that I know of, but nothing beats those huge GWPs from shopping online at Ulta. I rarely walk into a Sephora, because their salespeople aren’t very nice to me.

      • facebook and instagram. Also freebie sites. I’ve gotten a few la mer samples through facebook ads and estee lauder samples on instagram. Just scrollin gpast they do targeted ads. =)

      • Same here, and the way that targeted ads work means that once you start responding to some of these free sample offers on Facebook, the algorithm will start to send you more as well. I have recieved elemis, estee lauder, peace and lily, etc. this way.

      • Oh, good to know! I used to sign up for free samples of all kinds of things, but it wasn’t often good cosmetic samples. Lots of coffees and teas or just foil packets.

      • I just got a huge V.S perfume rollerball sample from Facebook ad today . I have also got Estee Lauder, LaMer and Ritual samples .

      • I am scared to click on any ads now.. I also used to try and get free products from facebook ads, never did I ever got any sample and recently I started getting so many random messages.. I have now stopped putting my details to any site for samples.

  24. I never like the plus bag design.. always prefer the ultimate bag but out of my budget so I finally stopped skipping plus and cancelled.

    • I never like it either! I usually like the regular bag better.

  25. I really like the Glam Bag design and look forward to the bonus item.

  26. Well, that’s awesome! Thanks Ipsy!

  27. What date can you resubscribe to get March & be able to make a choice selection? I don’t want February.

    • That’s my question!
      I’m planning to pause my regular (although with a bonus item maybe not)
      and get a plus for the month! I’ve been on the fence about getting a month of plus and the adorable bag design seals the deal for March being my month of plus!

    • I joined on January 23 to get the February Ipsy and was able to make my Feb choice right away. I would wait until mid month or 3rd week of the month. On their help page it says:

      Usually, you’ll get your first Glam Bag the following month. However, sometimes we’re able to offer memberships for the current month.

      Glam Bags leave our warehouse mid-month, and usually arrive 7-10 business days after they ship. We ship in batches, and delivery time can vary each month, so your Glam Bag could arrive the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th week of the month. You’ll always get a tracking email so you can follow your bag’s progress.

  28. Ooooh, that’s exciting. I’m interested in what they might be so I can change my profile in time. Hope we get spoilers. I read something about people getting brushes for Feb…

    • I’m getting a set in my Plus bag.
      While I doubt that they’re worth the $154 claimed, I have not been disappointed by the brushes I’ve received.

      • Same.

      • I’m getting that set in my Plus and excited for them. I meant a single brush for their Feb bonus item.

    • Some people did get a notification in their account that they could receive a free gift for March. It is not yet known what that gift is, or if it is the same for everyone who received it.

      In December 2018, everyone did receive a bonus 6th item in the regular glam bag — a FARAH brush. Could that be what you’re thinking of?

      • *free gift for February, I mean. 😅

      • No, someone posted on MSA in another ipsy thread in the last couple days that they got the Feb 2020 bonus gift pop up in the app and they later saw spoilers for the gift, which was a brush. To the best of my recollection, that is.
