  1. Ipsy articles for the month of April are up! They contain some new spoilers for April items!

    I believe these are for the original glam bag due to their sizes, but they could also be for Ultimate:
    – Aromatica Calendula Juicy Cream
    – Nomad Tuscany eye shadow in
    – Space Case Fakecation Bronzer
    – Context nail lacquer in Slow Down
    – Hey Honey Tone it up! Herbal Toner
    – Helios nail polish in Livin’ Lovely (not 100% sure about this one, since it has appeared in a past bag)

    Overall, these look good to me! I would not mind a bag made up of any 5 of these!

  2. CR scrub for the win! Got it in my GBU last month & love it!

  3. I don’t get paid until the 2nd of April…so looks like I will be skipping next month. I like the bag, but prefer to stay out of the negatives.

  4. Just wanted to make sure everyone knows Ipsy moved up the timeline for add-ons for April because of covid-19. It will begin on March 30th.

    • They are also charging us for our bags on March 29th instead of April 1st

  5. Not impressed with the choices again this month. 😕

  6. I picked glossier never tried any of their products before and have been wanting to

  7. I picked the Nomad shadow, a pretty shade for spring/summer and I like their formula. I get a lot of primers/moisturizers, normally, so hoping the Glossier product will come in my bag or be an add-on option. I’ve never tried any of their products but hear they are good.
    I also picked up a hand sanitizer/moisturizer duo offered in the $5 options as well as the FAB/Seraphine primer duo. I love that FAB coconut primer! iPSY turned me on to FAB and I love that brand.

  8. I almost skipped but decided I’d try the Oryza liquid eye shadow, even though I can’t find it on their site.

    • I hope I can get that as an add-on if it’s not in my bag! Looks interesting!

    • I picked that as well but also couldnt find anything about it online. I’m thinking(hoping) it’s a brand new product they are coming out with.

  9. I picked skincare for my 2 bags. Glossier and Youth To the People.

  10. I thought choice was on the 25th. I never got the option to choose, because It never showed up on my app. Wow.. crazy

    • I just chose a few minutes ago. Is it closed now?

    • Choice is open all day.

  11. I don’t like any of the choices to pick for me. I have combo skin and that moisturizer looks too heavy. Oh well surprise it is.

    • They’re also sending a Murad water gel moisturizer sample this month, so maybe not picking will help you get that. (You may even want to try temporarily switching your profile to “oily” for the month to avoid the moisturizer samples you don’t want.)

      • Thanks for the heads up and great tip.

  12. Glossier moisturizer for me!

  13. I picked the scrub. The concealer was not an option for me as well. I really hope I get the eyeshadow palette or one of the masks in my bag!

  14. I picked the concealer!

    • Yes I. Want that to

  15. I ended up just getting the Nomad eyeshadow because I love the shade and their eyeshadows are perfect for my makeup in the car kits. Might have gone for the shadow quad if it had a better light to mid-dark range rather than four medium tones.

    Also I worry if I pick something more expensive they’d balance out the bag with cheaper stuff.

  16. I opted for the nomad shadow. I like the formulation and this looks like it’s right in my color palette. I’ll be very interested to see what gets paired with it, because I’m not crazy about any of the other choices.

  17. I picked the Kokie concealer, but I had a hard time deciding between that and the YTTP mask. I ultimately picked the concealer as I have an abundance on masks right now.

  18. Oh man, I completely intended to skip this month, but these are too good to pass up. I had a hard time choosing, but eventually picked the Oryza Foiler Alert shadow; I love rose gold tones and tend to do minimal, one-and-done eye looks, especially in the summer. Also, getting a full size product worth $25 is a great deal.

    I’d be extremely happy to see the Glossier, Christophe Robin, and YTTP products in my bag, too. At the very least, I hope they’re add-on products.

    I also bought the full-size Glamglow cleanser/Purlisse primer duo in the flash sale. I received the cleanser in my September GBP, loved it, and literally just finished it last week, so getting another one for less than half of retail price – with an additional product – is a steal.

    Sigh, I was trying to save money with all the uncertainly in the world right now, but Ipsy has a way of making me pull my wallet out.

    • Same, I was gonna skip this month to save some money and cancelled on the 20th but then I saw this page and the CR scalp scrub (I tried it before and ran out of it) and the bag’s pretty too and tried to reason with myself that this is going to be my one splurge for the next few months.

  19. Glossier for me. I’ve never tried their products

  20. I want with the Glossier item. I love getting good quality skincare items in my bags / boxes.

    • *Went with, not “want with”. 🙂

  21. I chose the hair scrub. I got it in Allure and have been searching for similar on the cheap in vain ever since. I was so bummed it was not offered as add on last month.

    • I grabbed it too! I’ve tried quite a few similar products but none leave yo uwith that uber squeaky feeling. The r + C co one is kinda close the rest are too chunky.

    • I love that scalp scrub! It’s so good.

    • Me too!

  22. I picked the Oryza liquid shadow. Pretty summer shade for when I finally have somewhere to go to wear makeup again. Also it’s a full sized product valued around $25. The Kokie concealer is one of my favorites though!

    • Same!!!!😉👍

  23. So many good choices! I picked the scalp item because I have a very sensitive scalp and I currently don’t have anything for it. But I also want that Glossier primer and the YTP mask. Hoping I get both of them

    • I picked that also. I have used that and I love it !!

    • Theres a good chance they will be available as addons on reveal day.

  24. I was going to experiment with not choosing this month, but the only thing I like in the spoilers is the CR scrub and I got that in Ultimate last month, so unless I pick it, I won’t get it. This is probably a good month to skip.

  25. I didn’t care too much for most of these choices. I would have picked the Kokie if it had been one of my choices. I ended up with the setting powder. It’s one of the products I run out of the most so even though I have a few, it will without a doubt get used. Maybe? Lol. I put on a full face just to go to the gas station the other night. 🤷‍♀️

    • I just put on a full face to go to Home Depot for 10 minutes 😀 … something to make myself feel & look halfway human, lol

      • Lol. I did that too, just to run to Walgreens. Grabbed what we needed, quickly, and left. i was shocked they had some TP, not much, but I got one 6 pack of it. It is so weird to see the lack of tissue, paper towels and kleenex.

      • You’re lucky you can still do that. In my area in NY we are in dire straits and can’t go to store without mask, gloves. I’m immune compromised as well and no grocery are doing delivery or pick up.

      • Whoa! No delivery? I rely on Amazon Fresh for grocery delivery in the Chicago area.

      • I’ve been using Amazon Fresh and Whole foods for delivery, too, but in the San Francisco area, it’s getting really hard. You really have to stalk the Amazon app and grab a time slot as soon as it’s available, even if it’s 7am.

      • I’m in NY, where things are the WORST rn!
        I had used amazon fresh a few times over the last 2 months & LOVED the convenience of it & all! & esp the sale prices on things! & couldn’t believe even how cheap milk was! (Even tho it does go bad VERY quickly, & wayyyy before the expiration date for some reason!🤷🏻‍♀️)
        So As of about a week-10 days ago tho, they don’t have ANY AVAILABLE DELIVERY DATES, for as far as the eye can see! Even still, Like 3 weeks from now, NOTHING!!!!!
        When I saw this like 10+ days ago, that’s WHEN/HOW I REALLY KNEW things were BADDD!

        & I have real serious problems leaving the house (like SERIOUS anxiety issues, I.e. I’m agoraphobic, & some other issues🤦🏻‍♀️😬😬😬)
        I don’t know WTF to do!🙀😳
        & Have no friends/fam members.
        Sorry to be so depressing😬🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

        A POSITIVE thing to say: that Christopher Robin scalp scrum is awesome and smells DELICIOUS! Has a super clean/beach scent! Got one a few months back in an allure box!
        #MakeAllureBoxGreatAgain! 😬😂

      • I feel so much for you and others in your situation. We are lucky. We live in BFE Oklahoma. We should stay safe, especially if they would close the state park right outside of town. 🙏🙏

        Spring Break could have very well infected the town and we are praying that our community and all communities everywhere stay as safe and healthy as possible.

        And that the brain deficiency laden Americans would just quit being stupid and stay home. 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️

  26. Glossier for me! Love their products

  27. I picked the CR scrub, as well. I have been paused for several months, so I hope it ends up being a good bag.

  28. Did anybody else notice the $5 bundles after you choose and the flash sale bundles have hand sanitizer gel?! Its the merci handy. (I don’t like that it has propylene glycol; but it’s still sanitizer.) I just thought I’d pass the word and encourage people to only get 1 or 2 if you actually need it so those in real need have a way to get some. 🙂

    • I picked up one of the hand sanitizer/hand moisturizer duos. I thought about getting another but I didnt want to take more than one and have them go out of stock before everyone who needs it could get one.

      • Very thoughtful of you !! We need more people like you right now ❤

    • I ordered one, and received an email to say that the order was canceled 😑

      • Awe shoot! That’s weird because the duo still shows up under the flash sale. Sorry your order was cancelled.

    • Kevessa,
      thank you so much for posting this. I was able to order one for me and my boyfriend. We’re in desperate need of hand sanitizer here in Los Angeles. Ipsy claims they shipped mine out so not sure why they cancelled the order in this thread(maybe they live in an area can’t ship something like hand sanitizer?) Because I ordered it after I had seen her order was cancelled. Anyway thank you soooo much!!

  29. I skipped. The spoilers and the selection are underwhelming to me. I’d have probably went for the YTTP mask but I have a lot of PM moisturizer / sleeping masks already that need to be used up.

  30. I chose the Christopher Robin Scrub for one of my GBs because I got it from Allure and became obsessed with it! It’s amazing. I chose the YTTP mask for my other GB because I love YTTP and have been wanting to try that mask forever. I chose the Sunday Riley Toner for my GBP

    • The Dream Mask is excellent ☺️ Would’ve picked it if I didn’t have a full-size already.

      • I picked the Glossier because I have a new full size CR scrub (my OG) but thanks for letting me know about the dream mask, I’ll try to snag it during add-ons.

    • That scrub is great! Unfortunately my toddlers got into my one from Allure so it’s a bit drier now and not quite as good.

  31. Is the Orzya anything different from the one they’ve had previously? The Kokie concealer doesn’t show up for me on either account which is sad since I would have picked it! My friend got it in one of her bags a while ago and it was too pale for her so she gave it to me and it’s perfect!

    I picked the eyeshadow on my second account that was offered a free bag to stay since I did really like it as a great little travel quad, but I think on my primary I’m going to let the algorithm have a shot and see how that goes

    • The ORYZA quad looks like the one that was previously sent. It looks like ipsy’s studio photography lighting is making the colors appear a bit more pinkish than they actually are, too.

  32. I use setting powder all over my face daily (mostly to mattify after sunscreen), so I picked that, even though I was REALLY tempted by the Glossier moisturizer & the Nomad eye shadow. Even the YttP & ORYZA cream shadow look good to me! Hopefully IpsyMatch will do its thing! 🙏🙏🙏

    … or they’ll be available as add-ons! 🙏🙏🙏

    • Also: my profile is set to Fair, & the Kokie Cosmetics concealer wasn’t a choice for me.

      • Yeah, me either.

      • Me too! Bummed that it wasn’t an option for me either!

      • Mine is set to light and it is an option for me. So close!

      • It’s weird because I definitely have “Fair” skin, like the palest or second palest foundation in most brands level pale and it’s perfect for me!

        I was able to get the option to select it by changing my skin tone in the quiz from “Fair” to “Light”, picking it, and then switching right back!

      • Thanks for sharing! Will have to remember to do that in the future if that happens!

  33. Went for the scrub! Just seemed like something different to try, even though I thought for sure I’d for the the Glossier or Youth to the People

  34. I hadn’t been wowed by any of the spoilers and was totally prepared not to choose anything this month, but I’ve been dying to try the Christophe Robin salt scrub, so I jumped on it as soon as I saw that was an option.

    • Same!

    • The Christophe Scalp Scrub hasn’t been showing as an option for me? Do I need to change something in my beauty profile?
