Well, it’s definitely better than the March bag lol.
I’m so overly stoked for the Sunday Riley, it’s unreal. This by itself makes the whole bag worth it to me.
I have very oily skin and have been going back and forth trying to justify paying $65 for the Space Race set, so I’m happy this will help sway me one way or the other pulling the trigger.
PS- Anyone who gets it and doesn’t want it, I’m MORE than willing to trade for another product!

Kayla

I’ve tried the Martian toner and I had to stop using it. To me, it smells like literal garbage…they describe it as “cut grass,” and trust me I tried HARD to smell that but I couldn’t take it. I ended up not using the rest, it’s buried in my bathroom cabinet. I was super sad over it, I hoped it would be a miracle worker for my super oily skin. 🙁

Tara

I’m not particularly sensitive to smells, I know a lot of people are, and that’s a big trend now, people don’t want fragranced products, but I don’t mind, and actually prefer a nice smell over something that just smells… chemical-y or something lol. So as long as it’s not OVERWHELMINGLY horrible, I hope it’ll work. Fingers crossed lol.

CC

Does IPSY actually follow your preference quiz selections? Just wondering because I am a new subscriber…

Tara

I’ve been subbed to ipsy almost 3 years. It took awhile for them to “get it right” with my preferences, but now it’s one of my favorite subs. Every now and then, I get an item I said I don’t use, (like this month I’m getting a bronzer, I don’t use bronzers) but it’s few and far between. And now that they give you the option to purchase items that you didn’t get in your bag, even though you do have to pay for them, they go for a fraction of the cost and it gives you the opportunity to get the stuff you want to try, if you didn’t get it in your bag.

tammy g.

this was the worst glam bag plus I’ve ever seen…so I cancelled this box…they just keep getting worst…I’ve kept my glam bag for now.will see about this too..

Tara

I was initially thinking about cancelling another sub and upgrading to the plus. But when I see the products each month, there’s literally nothing I see that would justify the price.
I’m more than happy with my regular Glam Bag, especially considering if there’s anything in the other bag I want, I can just outright buy it now.

Sarah

sort of ticked that we keep getting travel and mini products. not what i signed up for

Wendy

I completely agree!! And why is the glam bag plus bag always the ugliest?? Somehow it just seems like punishment because we didn’t upgrade to the Ultimate.

I’ve been with ipsy for years. But it’s time to cancel my plus bag. I’m have a huge problem canceling. I go thru the steps wait for a e-mail. Never received a e-mail. Please help me to cancel.

Tammy

I just received my Ipsy glambag + …

2 OF THE BAGS
AND
MALIN+GOETZ

NOTHING ELSE..
nope
nope NOPE….

Tammy

For March by the way pretty sad

Tara

I’m getting my March bag the day after tomorrow, and it’s probably one of the worst bags I’ve ever got, in almost 3 years.
There wasn’t even anything I saw that was available to purchase. I got the Violet Boss palette, cause I’m a nude palette type of girl, and I had actually been looking for it for a little while on another site for more money. Glad I held off.

Catalina

Anyone else get the email that said “For your eyes only: Build your dream bag. Faves starting at $3”? I was disappointed when I clicked on it and it wasn’t working. Customer service said basically the email wasn’t meant for me. 😡😢

Amanda

Yes & they told me the same thing. That it was only supposed to go to a select group of people & that didn’t include me. Not cool.

Joy

YES!!! I have been wondering if anybody else got this. They told me the same thing, even though it was sent to me it wasn’t meant for me! I laughed so hard and then I canceled my membership. 🙂

Please tell how to cancel. I can’t seem to get it canceled. I’m so over the GB plus. And their sending me two. I only order one. So disappointed.

Val

The same thing happened to me. 🙁

Jennifer

Yes I got that to and thought it was just me it wasn’t working for!!

Nicole Grantier

After the travel size Sunday Riley being called full size last month I’m a bit bummed that the palette above is a mini, the Sunday Riley in this bag is the smallest size they make and the mud mask does not appear to be full size (which is 2 ounce). That’s an awful lot of items being called full size, that aren’t.

Alice

I love my Plus and am looking forward to April! Ipsy never claimed to be a clean beauty sub. I get clean products elsewhere. There’s always that little feature called ‘cancel’ for those who are unhappy, lol.

I would love to cancel. Please tell me how you did it. I’ve been trying to cancel for months.

Lola

Off-topic: has anyone else not yet received their GBP? I’ve usually got mine by this time of the month, but I haven’t even received a shipping notification yet.

SHT

I haven’t received mine either. DHL stater there was a delay. It took them five days to send it from their facility in Harrisburg to the post office in Raleigh.

AT

I haven’t received my tracking yet either!! I think this is the first month ever that I’ve gotten my boxycharm before my Ipsy plus!! I’m not usually super impatient, I’ve just never waited this long for my Ipsy! So kind of has me wondering.

Monica

I just got my Glambag plus today. I never got a shipping notification on it. I had gotten my regular Glambag earlier this week, and they sent a notification about it.

MJ

My shipping label was created March 5. Showed no movement until today. Strange description “en route.” If this wasn’t normal for Ipsy/DHL, I wouldn’t think anything about it given COVID-19.

Marion

I’ve received my plus, but not my glam bag. I got shipping emails for them the same day.

dia

I skipped GBP for March, but my regular bag isn’t projected to arrive until next Wednesday via FedEx.

Alexis R

Shocked to say Ultimate looks really good so far. GBP on the other hand, none of these products look good. None of them. I may do what I swore I should never do again, which is pause GBP and get Ultimate for the month. Ultimate has been so lame and not at all worth the price, but this month they seem to be turning it around a bit. GBP looks simply awful tho. Sad times, as Im usually ecstatic over my Plus bag.

On another note, I have to say my regular Ipsy bag for March is AAAAMZING!!!!! I have more luck with regular glam bag than any other sub. Oh and Test Tube, but TT is incredible every single time.

PuggaWugga

Fully agree. I really hate to go back to Ultimate as it has been a dumpster fire for me but April is looking like I’ll be skipping GBP and going with GBU. Who knew?

Lori

Agree about Ultimate and Plus! Regular GB looks meh to me so far. But Test Tube looks awful this month! I’ve gotten them for 2 years without ever skipping or cancelling, but I cancelled after spoilers.

Suzy

I cancelled TT too, not because of spoilers, but they seem to be disorganized. They tried to bill me twice for this upcoming box, and were so vague when I was wanting answers about it.

KatKat

nope, nope, nope and nope. the bag is wicked cute but the products sneak peek is just TERRIBLE. ugh, and this is the best of the bunch they have to offer. sadly will skip.

Nicole

The second ingredient in the SR Martian toner is denatured alcohol. No Thanks.
There’s also alcohol in the A+, which kills me because I actually love that product. Any good retinol recommends? I’m torn, I like the ingredients in the mask, I’d try it. I don’t need any mascara and that Dose lippie is a little too dark, that’s coming from someone who likes bolder colors. I’d like to try SHAINA B, but I feel like Ipsy dropped the ball by making it a mini palette. The full size Miami palette is gorgeous, I’d much rather have that. If the palette was full size, I’d be all in. I’ll have to see what the next spoilers or choice brings…Please give me a reason not to skip again Ipsy! 🙏

Nicole

Ugh…saw another person below mention that both skincare products have denatured alcohol, went back and checked the mask and she is right.🤦 I saw some other ingredients I liked and missed the full list. There’s absolutely no excuse for denatured alcohol in skincare. It destroys the skin’s natural barrier over time. There are plenty of brands that are able to formulate without it, so why include it when it offers not one single benefit to people’s skin? Looks like I’m skipping again this month. I’m disappointed.

Tiffany

Thank you for explaining what denatured alcohol does, I didn’t know

Yessy

Well…. I guess I am very excited for this box. Lol.

Marion

Yikes, dislike them all! Will cancel!

Weirdly, I actually like the Ultimate spoilers this month, so maybe Plus cancelation funds will go towards that.

Amanda

Exactly what I did. Lol.

Alice

Love the palette! Those are my colors.

meera

I second this!

Jackie

The Dose of Colors lipsticks are my absolute favorite for anyone who hasn’t tried them. They’re the best liquid lipsticks I’ve ever owned.

The Sunday Riley is didn’t smell badly to me, but I didn’t feel like it did much for my acne. I’ll wait until more spoilers come out, nothing is enticing me but the lipstick.

TheOtherJulia

Looks like I’m skipping another month. That lipstick is just too dark for me. The palette looks pretty, but nothing else really appeals to me.

Charlotte

Both the skincare products have denatured alcohol as the second listed ingredient. Really not good for those of us with sensitive skin! The makeup choices are all snoozes for me, so it looks like I’m skipping this month.

tammy g.

cancelled my glam bag plus the other day..what I don’t get I can buy with add-ons…seems cheaper to me.

Kimberly

SMH..What is up with the U-G-L-Y poop lipsticks?! And nothing about that says “Spring, here I am” It might say “Spring, the birds are back” UGH.

Charlotte

If you google for swatches, you’ll see it’s actually a deep red. Still not a color I associate with spring. I’d really like to see some pink, peach, or coral lippies.

Lori

Wow, don’t like anything here or GB. Ultimate actually looks really good so far…

Rach

That Sunday Riley toner is disgusting!!! It ruined my skin. It also smells like gym socks were soaked in a swamp for a year. So far, these items aren’t looking good. I wonder if this Ciate item is made in China, like it is for Boxy.

Charlotte

Mmm, not really interested in any of these. I was curious about the Sunday Riley, since I need a new toner, but the second listed ingredient is denatured alcohol. HARD PASS.

Emma

I think I’m going to end up skipping plus and hope that cute Miami palette is an add on for regular.

TheOtherJulia

I was hoping for the same thing! I need another palette like I need a hole in the head, but it looks pretty lol.

Tiffany

Are Plus bags large enough to fit full sized products, or are they a different version of the smaller bag?

Svetlana7e

Skipped!
