seems like ultimate can’t really fulfill its promise, unfortunately

Molly

I said the same thing. Ipsy’s idea was great. However, it was too good to be true. They just can’t send out 8 full size “luxury” brand items to all of us for $50 a month. We’re lucky to even get 8 full size items now; forget about them being from a good brand. The sample sizes are just a joke. There’s certainly nothing “deluxe” about them.

I really need to get over my FOMO and just cancel until Ipsy decides to hold up their end of the deal. Maybe if we all did they would finally change their business practices.

Joyce

Ipsy I want to try more different foundation samples. Please put foundation samples in your bags.

Jamey

Why do they keep on with all the cool tone chalky pallettes?!?! Ugh. And that jules brand is awful….

Apricot

I agree with you that the Jules Smith brand is sub-par but, I for one love pastel eye shadows such as are in this Iby palette. I hope I can add it on since I likely won’t get it in my Plus. And, I wish you luck getting what you want too. 🙂

Kimberly

I’d join Ipsy this month if I knew I’d get that pretty palette. Problem is these subscription boxes have too many variations now. I always feel like I’m missing out. I get boxy right now and it’s the same thing, some variations are just better than others. I’d feel so much better if the box was the box, no Feeling like you got the box of leftovers.

Jamey

Thanks 🙂 I dont know if I can rock pastels unless it’s an amazing formula because instead of pastel it will look chalky..lol. and most of what I got from ipsy are chalky….I sure hope they work for you if you get them. I’ve got the iby pallette but haven’t tried it.

Ela Avar

All three bags are so cute!! I can’t wait!!!

KAC

Wow these boxes keep getting worse.. IBY is not at all a luxury brand it’s equivalent to BC cosmetics from Khols. For a plus box maybe but ultimate NO way! So glad I canceled. Also the shape of bags is cute but the design??? What the hell is that? A flower , bug dragonfly fairy? They could have done something much cuter..

Jamielee Adams

Right? I was so excited since April is my birthday month and I usually give away my bags since I subscribe to all three but I’m like what? I’m not at all excited 🙁 I have been liking my plus bag more than the ultimate for the last 3-4 months. Idk I’m just not excited about any of my sub boxes as of lately 🙁 my obsession is coming to an end. Lol

Molly

I agree with everything you said. The spoilers this month suck. I do not think Ipsy was prepared to follow through with their original idea when they started the Ultimate bag. Very few luxury items, and this month (March) they didn’t even send the promised amount of 8 full size items.

Judith Acosta

An Iby palette in a Ultimate box… Seriously?… “Great!”… I’ll keep skipping Ultimate and don’t care for the nice bag… Sad

Sam

It’s not too bad, I can make it work, not a fan of the non branded IBY palette, but can make it work. I just have to say BOXYCHARM is so much better, I mean they are just killing it.

Stacy

IBY is far from “non branded” and most people that try them love them. I cancelled my Boxy and Boxyluxe cause they’ve been SUCKING so bad and I NEVER get the top spoiled “good” items but get the crappiest variations. Also Boxycharms customer service is the WORST. Just goes to show different people like different things.

A

Yep. I love Ipsy. I gave Boxycharm another chance and I received a lot of filler.

Ckay

So TRUE!!! I think the only ppl that get free stuff from BC get the good stuff. I signed back up this last month and I got the worst!! I mean the worst boxy luxe my A**
But I am still waiting on ipsy box this month. I am for sure cancel bC!!!! I’m staying with ipsy forsure they have the best customer service!!

Mamas3loves

You are absolutely correct boxy charms customer service is the worst I have ever dealt with in my life they do not care about their customers what so ever. I literally dread to get ahold of them I’ve been with them for 3 years and have only had to contact twice but it’s been a horrible. I loveeeee ipsy customer service.. they care!! As for IBY. I love them im confused how people do not think its a good brand. Now manna kadar I could understand.

MzBev

IBY isn’t Ipsy spelled wrong. It is it’s own brand. I have one of their palettes and its really good.

Alice

Yep. The IBY shadows are super.

Redwoods301

Lol no🤣🤣

Nicole Grantier

I bet both Ipsy and boxy and have loved all my ipsy, and given away most of my boxy. I get all 3 of each. It just goes to show how different each persons tastes are!

Kimberly

The Hank and Henry Palette last month was such a bad choice, you can’t give it away on the trade or sell sites. The boxy palette wasn’t much better. I used to love boxy but lately I feel like I’m getting clearance items that won’t sell in a store. Getting nice products as a surprise was fun but If it’s clearance items I’d rather pick them out myself. I wouldn’t spend five dollars on that palette. Apparently no one else will either.

Marion

IBY is a brand. Ipsy’s been sending their stuff for a couple years now. (I’m a fan of their shadows. Meh on the highlighters.)

Mamas3loves

IBY makes my favorite crease brush ive ever found. Okay I may be one of few that will be SO mad if I do not get the palette

Flora

I like the spoilers on the Plus but the bag for the Ultimate so, probably cheaper to sign up for Plus and add-on the bag lol.

Meredith P

For someone who has tried just about every box, please if you see this comment check out See New Skincare Box. I found out about them through a chain of comments on this site from a woman with a similar experience. Vegan, green-beauty, cruelty-free, AND full size products? Say less. (And only $52 bi-monthly) they usually offer discounts as well. If you have the time I would check them out, nothing but 5 stars for them!

Beth

All of the comments about these boxes are written like brand copywriters commenting on their own Insta posts, and they’re on ALL the beauty sub box threads. What is this haha

A

Yep.

Suzy

How have I not heard about this box?

Ela Avar

Hey, Liz (or anyone at My Subscription Addiction) I think this Ipsy post got hijacked by a competing sub box. This is about as scummy and unprofessional as I’ve seen in a while! If this is a sampling of your business practices, SNSB, it’s an excellent way to make sure I never subscribe!

Amanda O.

It’s not the company, it’s just other customers talking about sub boxes they love and spreading the word about good deals. I’ve discovered some of my favorite skincare subs from people having these discussions about different ones in the comments. I’m very grateful other customers share this valuable information with us. I’d never know to look at different sub boxes if they were exclusively discussed under their own posts. Some of y’all need to chill out and let us enjoy our shared love of skincare!

Jill

Um, I don’t work for the box or anything. I’ve been on this site a long time. Someone else posted about it, so I looked it up, found a good deal, and shared it. Is that not OK?

Apricot

I feel the same way. There are more promotional posts on other threads as well. It’s such a turn-off, I will NOT be checking out their site or service. Ughh.

paula

what is the name of this skincare box u girls are talking about would love to give it a try

Jill

It’s literally called “See New Skincare Box.” 🙂

Alexis M

thank you for posting about this! I just signed up ! WOW. I just signed up and for a YEAR and it was only $192!!! (with savings!) I’m in shock. They have a code “EMPOWERWOMEN” if anyone comes across this!! Thank you Meredith for letting us know!! 🙂

Jill

For the See New box, if you use the code EMPOWERWOMEN, you can get the new one (with Sonage) for only $33.80!!!

Jamey

Found it!! Thank you!!

kaitlyn

thank you for posting this!! Purchasing now. I saw something about this company in another comment thread too! Can’t believe I’ve never heard of it before! Thank you thank you!

Jill

Wow, thanks for posting about this box! I think I may need to give it a try and skip Ultimate instead…

Anne

aieee, when I found out their CLN&DRTY box’s cleanser was a stick cleanser, I caved – it’s still 35% off, so I only paid $19.50 for $182 worth of high quality, vegan skincare! Did someone say ‘pause all Ipsies this month (except maybe one gb for add-ons)?’ Because I could swear I heard that. 😛

Paula Hoss

Ayyyyy! Thanks for the shout out. We’re so glad you love The New Romantic Cleanser. xx – Hugs, Paula, founder CLN&DRTY

Anne

Well, hell-freaking-lo, See New Best Friend Box! How was I not already signed up?I’m kicking myself I missed the sales on the now sold out Honua, Graydon, and Skin Owl past boxes. 30 bucks! (They still have a couple other brands left). There’s a flash 35% off sale right now (21 hours and change left!\) site-wide with the code EMPOWERWOMEN. I signed up for my first bi-monthly box with a stated value of $180 worth of Sonäge-y goodness for $33.80 & free shipping. <3 Thank you, Meredith!!! 😀

SquirrelyGirl

It’s my favorite skincare sub! I just bought 2 of the past boxes during their last sale. This month we are getting Sonage! I bought some of their products in a FFF sale and that gommage is my favorite. I leave it on as a mask though. It peels away so much dead and dull stuff and leaves your skin so much brighter.

Jamey

What is this box?!?! I’ve tried “See New Best Friend Box” it’s taking me to etsy, then I tried “See New Skincare Box” and even ” see skin care box” and I am not finding anything through google….can someone please tell me the exact name..I bet I’ve missed all the sales 🙁

Marion

Looks pretty good! (Other than the weird lopsided Jules Smith palette…) I might actually re-sub!

Lori

Hallelujah! Eyeliners in a variety of colors besides black! Too bad it’s not a set, haha.

Mamas3loves

I felt the same exact way wish it were a set gaha and go figure the only item I am opted out of is liners because I’m so sick of getting liquid black eyeliner every month if I could get different colors of eyeliner every month whether it be waterline or liquid I would be very happy

Lori

I would be super happy as well! I’m not opted out of liners and have received one almost every month, so I finally changed the preference on them to “rarely”–how (un)funny would it be if this is the month that I DON’T get a liner, lol!

Lesly

Oo! Would love that yensa cleanser!

A

I’ve been wanting to cancel Ultimate. I think I might this month. Even though I really like the bag. The only things I’m interested in are the CBD cleansing oil and The Cottage Greenhouse mask. I really don’t need anymore eyeshadow palettes. I have about 75 of them. Most of them I got from Ipsy or Boxycharm.

Claudia

Good luck trying to cancel. No option anywhere.

Mamas3loves

I have never understood people having an issue Canceling I do have their app but I do not use it I just log in to my account and it is extremely easy to cancel everything through ipsy is easy to do

Alice

Super easy, right on your account.

Stacy

Ipsy is SO easy to cancel or pause, it’s literally a click of a button on their page under your account

Redwoods301

Um, are you sure you’re on the right site/app? Ipsy is extremely easy to pause and cancel. You don’t have to talk to a customer service person about it or anything, and I know boxy is notorious for charging people again after they’ve cancelled.

MzBev

I cancelled Ultimate, no problem at all.

Oz

I almost wish that I had dark spots for the Verso product because I really like everything that I have tried from the brand. I have more beauty stuff than I can use, so I don’t think that I will pull the trigger and re-sub.
Glad to see most people are liking the spoilers.

Kay

Can you sign up on “choice” day and NOT get the current month’s box, too? I want to sign up on the day I can choose one of these spoilers for next month, but I don’t want March. Any advice??

Emily

I signed up for the plus for next month now and I’m receiving just the Aptil, not March. I would assume if you were to sign up for the ultimate now, same thing would apply

Kay

Thank you!!!

Lesly

I did that last month with regular and did not get February’s bag.

tasha

Guess its another skip for me. I do not want any of these items. The last month I received was December.

Jill

Well, I caved and subbed. Sigh… (Skipping Glam Bag and Plus though, so almost works out!)

Lori

Omg, I like all of these, but I was planning to cancel Ultimate. It’s not once been as good as the spoilers make it seem…what to do, what to do…

That being said, I DO notice a slight improvement in Ultimate the last couple months. Anyone else?

Heather a

Agreed amazing spoilers! And I definitely noticed an improvement! April is my birthday month and I was going to try and skip but this is too good!

Jill

well, now I’m tempted to do Ultimate…I love that eyeshadow palette! And the Trestique set. Hm…

Bon

Is CBD a harmful ingredient? I know nothing about it…

Liz G

It’s chock full of vitamin E oil to the best of my knowledge so I’m guessing it’s VERY good for your skin!

Redwoods301

It’s supposed to be super moisturizing and calming for reactive skin.

Alice

It’s a wonderful ingredient and is used to help with many things. Just do a quick search on it. I don’t have time to write it all, lol.

Bon

I’m sorry. This was because someone posted they wish they could opt out of CBD oil products.. I didn’t think it was harmful but that made me wonder. 🙂

Bon

I really LIKE everything but the black eyeliner. Great bag, seems to me. I’m resigned to repeats..

Cheyenne

I actually really like some of these! I just wish there was an option to opt out of CBD products.

Tanya

I’ve skipped the Ultimate since the disastrous October bag. I think this one is going to bring me back.

amber

We’ve gotten that mask in a previous ME box. I wasn’t a fan of it. It burns, and I don’t usually have issues with masks like that.

Tiffany

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

TheOtherJulia

The plus bags are slightly larger than the regular bags. I have been able to fit some full size products and makeup brushes in one of them (November specifically). I haven’t received an ultimate one so I can’t give you an idea on those. But I might actually try ultimate this month. I haven’t been wowed enough before this month, but it looks pretty good to me. I need another sub like I need a hole in the head though. Decisions, decisions.

Tiffany

Thank you. I’m thinking about getting all three this month. I have a yearly sub for regular, do Plus off and on, and have not done Ultimate yet.

Apricot

In my experience, they are usually only marginally larger than the regular bag but February’s was the same size and April’s looks to be smallish also.

Tiffany

Thank you
