  1. I got the DOC liquid lipstick in Plum Queen and hated how dark and ugly it went on with its applicator. Then I sheered it out with a lip brush and applied it that way—much better. It’s definitely a shade I’ll keep for fall and winter, but it wasn’t as awful as I first thought. So maybe try that if you’d like to see if you can make it work for you. It really stays on well.

  2. I’m seeing people getting a drawstring pouch instead of the super cute bag shown in our reveals and promos. Anyone get the drawstring? I sure hope I get the zipper bag.

    • I got the drawstring and I’m super disappointed. The regular bag is way better than this junk

  3. I just got to see what my items will be today. I am very happy with everything I’m getting this month.

    Shaina B eye shadow palette
    Tarte eyeliner (I haven’t tried their eyeliner so happy about this)
    Ciate London mascara (Surprisingly I don’t get mascaras so thrilled with this)
    Cela Creme rose lotion (I love getting good quality lotions and I was really hoping it would be one of my items as well.)
    Foxy Bae Leave in Conditioner (My choice item)

    I chose two add ons
    Goomee hair ties (I was getting ready to purchase some on Amazon) Only $3 for 4 so Thanks Ipsy.
    Neogen Real Vita C serum (Running low on it so was glad to see a small version for $3)

    This was a welcome surprise today.
    I hope everyone is staying safe and social distancing.

  4. My bag arrived today! After not being able to access my account, I was shocked to see it had arrived by 4/3! Way to go, Ipsy!

  5. I got this exact bag, and it’s the first time I’m super disappointed with my bag!

  6. I got
    Cela creme rose – sounds great.
    Mascara – always need mascara.
    Starskin sheet masks – my pick, nothing really looked promising by the time I logged in.
    Context nail polish – I’ve been doing my own nails weekly while I’m working from home.
    Tarte black eyeliner – my stepdaughter will take it.

    Really no complaints. It’s a solid bag. I know everyone got the dreaded eyeliner but if that’s all we have to complain about we’re pretty blessed. For $25? It’s a bargain.

    • We are bag twins! And I agree that our variation is a very solid bag. I’m not crazy about the variation MSA got and would’ve been disappointed if that’s what I got.

    • The eyeliner is no good then

  7. In case anyone wanted the Foxybae conditioner & didn’t get it, it’s one of the items in the Spring Refresh kit in Ipsy Offers today.

  8. Does anyone know if the eyeliner is full size or mini?

    • I believe it is full size based on the retail value.

  9. Did anyone actually get the Bobby Brown lipstick, or was that just a clever ruse on ipsy’s part to get our hopes up?

    • I had asked the same question. I’ll bet they did have the Bobbi Brown lipstick, but they had like 100 of them and 100,000 of the Dose lipsticks and 200,000 of the Shaina palettes.

    • I got it! Not sure if it’s my color though.

      • What else was in your bag? Did you choose an item? I need deets! 😆

  10. CÉLA Crème Rose body cream–I will use the heck out of this.
    CIATÉ LONDON Triple Shot XXL Mascara in Black XXL–I will use it eventually.
    SHAINA B MIAMI Mini Miami Eyeshadow Palette–Not excited about this one. Just not my colors.
    That freaking Tarte eyeliner. Don’t care.
    FOXYBAE Flaminglow Leave In Conditioner–this is my pick and I am really excited about this. I love getting hair care stuff and I use leave-in conditioner daily.

    • I’ve used it. It’s really nice.

  11. Kinda wish I had held out to see if I got the Plum Queen lipstick. But there was literally nothing else I wanted. I got:

    DOSE of colors lip in Campfire (my pick, still very excited because it’s good for spring)

    Tarte Eyeliner (I would be pissed if I wasn’t almost out of pencil liner, but I’m okay with it this time. I don’t use liquid eyeliner.)

    VIP mask duo (I’ll use them, but not exciting.)

    Cela Creme Rose Body Lotion (meh)

    Girlactik Jello Gloss Balm (this is cool, but I also feel like they would put this in a glambag)

    The thing I don’t understand is how they curate this. I have eyeliner and sheet masks as rarely. Honestly I would rather have gotten the Bobbi Brown lipstick, and had 3 lip products instead of either the masks or liner.

    • I feel the same way. Half of what I am getting in my plus is marked as rarely. Plus is really starting to be a disappointment if this is the best they have to offer. I feel like they have one good box every few months and the rest are just random leftovers.

  12. I don’t care what anyone has to say but I’m super excited for my April box. The add ons were totally worth spending because everything that was on there I basically added to my bag. This is definitely one I can’t wait for and it has a while for me to skip my box but not this one. 🙂

  13. I know I post this almost every month, but OMG, is anyone else DYING to know how they decide which bag you get? Maybe I’m just a really analytical thinker, but I want to know how they prioritize your preferences, how many of each product they order, etc. I know they won’t reveal that much because it will likely spoil the facade of personalization (I think they do personalize, but are limited by logistics). I wouldn’t be mad as I totally understand they have to be efficient and follow a process, but I sure would LOVE to see how it works…

    • I have 2 of each bag, spread out over 3 accounts. My profile is identical on each. My plus and ultimate bags are almost always identical, with slight variations typically based on my choice item. That leads me to believe that they do indeed use our profiles in some way, shape or form. Even if it isn’t exactly how we want them to, lol. My base bags do tend to vary more than the others, but there are a lot more products to choose from in this bag. I think another factor is that one of my base bag accounts is pretty new, so I can receive a wider variety of products (they would be repeats on my other account, but not on this one) and I have fewer reviews for them to go off of.

      That’s my experience for what it’s worth ❤️

      • Thank you for sharing 🙂

    • Totally agree! I know they wouldn’t tell us, but I’m so intrigued.

  14. I’m getting the Dose of Colors in Brick (choice), Cela Rose cream (sounds nice), Ciate mascara (always up for a new one), Shaina blush/highlighter palette (meh), and the eyeliner.

    Still sick of black eyeliner.

    Add ons are the Goldfarb hand cream and the Jules Smith eye palette. The palette’s colors are more my style.

    I still have to go to the office because I’m deemed essential, but since I’m the only one there, social distancing is easy.

    • How lucky you get to be the only one who still has to come in…. 😒

    • I’m in the same exact boat. I’m the only one in the office for now and my commute is down from 35 minutes to 12 minutes. I feel so lucky to still have a job and not have all the awful stress that most folks are feeling. But I have found myself “stress shopping” way more than I should be, although a lot of it was small “add-on” flash sale type items.

      Both my parents have come down with “it” (they don’t even like to use the term) which is my current reason for being stressed. Kind of crazy how it reframes your entire way of thinking about life. Eeeek!

      • I’m so sorry, I hope your parents are OK.

      • Ugh saaame girl!

        We’re considered an ‘Essential” business a well and I have to be here no matter what its annoying. Works completely dead for us, hence why I read these comments and now subscribed for the first time to Ipsy LOL. They’ve blocked ALL of our YouTube and Facebook access so this is all i have.

  15. I paused my April bag initially because none of the spoilers I wanted were available as choice items. (The item I really really wanted was the Bobby Brown lipstick.) But then I decided to just give it a shot and take my chances, I’m actually relatively happy with my bag. I’m getting:

    – Starskin Sheet Mask Set (my choice because Sunday Riley was no longer available when I picked, and I’m looking forward to trying an ultra expensive sheet mask I’d never pay full price for)
    – Cela Creme Rose (was hoping I would get this, I’ve been using a ton of lotion with all that hand washing to trying to keep the virus at bay)
    – Context Skin Nail Polish Duo (meh, not my usual colors)
    – Ciate London mascara (was hoping for this one as well, the wand is the type I tend to like)
    – Tarte double take eyeliner (meh, I guess I don’t mind trying it out)

    So 3 out 5 items I really wanted is pretty good!

    Add On – $12 Full Size Bloomeffects Dirt Mask (hope this will help with my recent break outs)

    Was really disappointed with the lack of Bobby Brown Lipstick not being available as an add on. And it seems very few people (if any) actually got it in their bag. Probably a unicorn item.

    What did you get in your bag? Are you happy with your bag?

    • I got the same bag as MSA :
      –Shaina B Eyeshadow Palette
      –Tarte Eyeliner
      –Bloomeffects Dutch Dirt Mask
      –Girlactik Jello Lip Balm
      –Dose of Colors in Plum Queen

      I didn’t choose and item and this was my best bag in awhile! Super pleased!

  16. It feels like ipsy has really used the “choice” feature to get around the storm of opt-outs they used to get…and have an excuse to send anyone and everyone black eyeliner. XD

    But all in all I’ve grown to love my spoilers over the course of the day! Tarte eyeliner ain’t bad, I use mascara even if I don’t love the formula, I’m getting the neato Maelle concealer pen which looks fun, and I’m getting the rose cream (which really isn’t my thing but I know a lot of people wanted it, so I’m grateful!). The one thing I’m not hyped about is the orange lipstick, but…we shall see.

    • I didn’t choose so that I wouldn’t get stuck with my opt-out items (liner and mascara). Got liner in my plus and mascara in ultimate :/

  17. Subbed in March. Got black eyeliners in both bags even though I selected that I rarely use eyeliner and when I do I rarely use black.

    I know it’s not a big deal, but I ordered this to treat myself while all this scary stuff is going on and it’s a little bit of a let down. I did email them about it. We’ll see.

    Other products are the Sunday Riley (choice), Ciate mascara, Girlactik jello gloss, and the Lavido mask/exfoliator. I added on the Cottage Greenhouse mask and the Trestique lip glaze set.

  18. Lavido facial mask
    Shaina B blush and highlighter mask (ugh! who is this?)
    Starskin duo face masks (seriously?)
    DOC in Campfire (I’m cool-toned, so this probably won’t work)
    Tarte Double Take liner

    Add On:
    Verso Dark Spot fix

  19. I’m glad I didn’t get the Sunday Riley Martian, I love how it makes my skin feel, but I can’t get over the smell. I got a full size I’m forcing myself to use; none of my friends would take it off my hands. The smell just doesn’t go away for me. I’ve tried layering it with something smellier (in a good way), but I still get whiffs of it. What does everyone else do?

    I got the jello gloss balm (interested in trying it); black eyeliner (wish it were any other color); nail polishes (happy to get these, now that we’re shelter in place, I paint my nails more often, just a pop of color to cheer me up); masks(again, using these more since I’m working from home); leave in conditioner (I will use). So, not a bad bag at all!

  20. Dang it, I forgot to resub last night, and did it this morning, but now I can’t shop the add-ons! I’m so disappointed in myself.

    • I’m sorry! I’d be so upset, too 🙁

  21. Mine was all face care with eyeliner and mascara. I’m not complaining. Most of my add ons were also face care products. Judging by the options for this box and add-ons, it seems their intention was self-care.

  22. Probably the worst bag I’ve gotten. Plus is usually my favorite too.
    Sunday Riley Martian Toner (my choice)
    Bloomeffects Dirt Mask (this just does not sound appealing but I guess I’ll try it)
    Tarte Liner (it’s a black eyeliner so you know, I’ve got 27 and I’m opted out)
    Shaina B Mami Palette (this could have potential but I have so many similar ones, plus the low value makes me question ingredient quality)
    Dose Lipstick in Old Flame (okay, this is the WORST color they could have picked, I have skin that is pure white, orange is an awful idea!!)

    I would have loved the Bobbi Brown!!

    • I have almost the same bag, but I’m excited for mine. I picked the SR, I have oily skin so love a good mud mask, I have bought the Tarte eyeliner multiple times in the past and am happy to receive another, and I think the eyeshadow palette is pretty. The only item I really don’t like is the Dose of Colors lippie in Play it cool, I look dead in those cool shades. I really wanted the Bobbi Brown or would have like the girlaktic, but overall I am happy with mine. Added on the Seraphine botanicals gloss and verso, very excited for both of those.

  23. Anyone have any experience contacting @ipsy on twitter or insta? I can’t seem to get ahold of them and am locked out of my account 🙁

    • Not sure if you tried already but I usually have good luck through their email link actually I’ve gotten answers back with a few hours even if you go to help.ipsy.com and click get instant answers at the bottom it’ll take you through a quick process to get to the email link, never tried reaching them through insta or twitter though😕

      • Thanks, I tried that, too. I’ve never had a problem like this. I keep getting an error message, so I guess we’ll see. Oh well, I guess that I can always work my way through my stash this month 🤣

    • I sent them an email and the answered pretty quickly!!

      • Thanks everyone – got a response on Twitter. They were def able to bill me and I have a bag, but they’re not sure why I can’t get into my account 🤔

  24. Did anyone received the Bobbi Brown lipstick? After all that hype, it seems like no one received it and it wasn’t an add-on item.

    My plus bag, after skipping the previous three months, was a 1 out of 5. I will be receiving:

    Starskin mask duo. I like sheet masks, but I had a problem with this brand in the past, so I’ll be passing these on to friends.

    Girlactik lip balm gloss. I suppose this is okay. Can always use a lip balm, although I prefer basic balms from Burt’s Bees or EOS.

    Shaina B highlighters. I do not need more highlighters, but I get the feeling they’re pushing this brand pretty hard, so I wasn’t surprised. Wish it was the shadow palette instead, though.

    Lavido scrub mask. I would have preferred the Dutch Dirt scrub mask, but this will get used. I bought the Dutch Dirt mask as an add-on.

    Tarte black eyeliner. I already got a black Tarte eyeliner in my regular glam bag last month, so this is essentially a repeat.

  25. So disappointed 😔 Not getting Dose of Colors or either of the palettes. I am getting liquid eyeliner that I will never use and 3 other items that I marked no on my profile. This looks like the worst bag (plus or regular) for me personally that I’ve ever received. I was so excited for the spoilers! Count me annoyed 😠

  26. -Shaina B Miami Eyeshadow Pallete
    -Lavido Facial Mask
    -Tarte Eyeliner (my choice)
    -Ciate London Mascara
    -Cela Creme rose
    I didn’t think I was going to be able to swing the price of the box AND still get add-ons but I was able to buy a few add-ons after all, the Shaina Blush brush serephine botanicals lip gel bella Pierre lipstick and kokie concealer.

    I’m one of those people who isn’t excited by the skin care products much but I’m kind of excited to try the cela Creme.

  27. I’m a little on the fence about this month. My plus isn’t horrible but I’m receiving 2 of the same type of items (nail polish and eyeliner) in both regular and plus. Is this common? I haven’t had that happen before but it’s rather disappointing when you expect to try a variety of products.

  28. I’ll be real honest here I feel bad that some of you didn’t like your box seriously I’d be a little disappointed too of course we are all looking for something to lift out spirits right now and not liking your box can put a damper on that for sure but let’s be grateful we are even in the position to be worried about what we’re getting in our box or bag this month because some people are fighting for their lives or have family that is fighting for their life and don’t have time to think about something like this or maybe they do get a box or bag but can’t afford it anymore, what’s going on is very real I’m here in RI I’m so close to NY I’m terrified RI is going to look like that next, my heart goes out to everybody especially those in NY right now, stay safe everyone😩💖

    • I agree whole heartedly. Please stay in, stay safe, and stay well.

    • Agree. Even though I got another eyeliner, I’m super happy with a pick me up box on the way. I’m always pleased with my plus. Blessings to everyone in these trying times.

      • Agreed! I cancelled Plus after a black eyeliner in both bags. I have an annual regular bag. Just happy to get a package. I added on the max 8 items! Everyone stay safe, stay positive and take care. I work in retail for a company which believes it is essential. It’s not. I have a good cry everyday before work, because I am terrified to be in public. My Cavapoo Louie jumps up to provide comfort. Such a sweet boy. Hopefully, normalcy will return by Summer. Looks like school might be done for the year, though.

      • I’m so sorry the company you work for is doing that. I also have a feeling school is done for the year

      • I am so sorry that your job is still having you come in. i can imagine you must feel so overwhelmed each day before going in. sending hugs your way! Praying normalcy returns by summer also! I’m the only person who takes care of my children so we have been stuck inside for almost a month. With me only doing the necessary things(being in public places) but still predominantly ordering everything i can for delivery. The cabin fever is definitely getting to me though. Wishing the best for you and Louie. Stay safe everyone.

    • Good time to learn where the period is on the keyboard.

      • Are you referencing the fact my post had no periods in it? I wasn’t concerned about being grammatically correct if that was your point

      • I thought I already replied to this but I don’t see it so if it pops up double sorry🤷🏼‍♀️ Are you referencing the fact my post didn’t have any periods in it? I wasn’t concerned about being grammatically correct while I was typing. Sorry if my lack of punctuation was a bother to you

  29. I’m getting the Cela Creme, Girlactik, Starskin mask duo, Shaina B Miami eyeshadow palette (my choice) and Tarte eye liner.

    I was initially kind of bummed about these choices– I am sensitive to scents so a body cream where the smell lingers all day is not my thing, and I do not wear eyeliner. But I’m interested to see what an $18 lip balm is like, and a $15 diamond mask.

    And, looking at the other options, the only other thing I would have really wanted would have been one of the lighter DOSE lip colors, so I guess this is the best bag combo for me.

    By the by, I have tried that Odacite oil. It does indeed smell like cumin…and then cumin was all I could smell for hours. Not my preferred scent. Ever.

    I did add on the full size body sunscreen. I’m assuming I’ll eventually be allowed back outside! 😀

  30. I could not be happier with my bag this month. I’m getting:

    1. Ciate London Mascara (will be worth a try since I love mascara…I don’t have high hopes, though)
    2. Girlactik Jello Gloss Balm
    3. Sunday Riley Toner (my pick! Love this stuff!)
    4. Lavido Facial Mask & Exfoliator (I’ve been masking a lot lately being stuck at home, so I’m excited to try)
    5. Tarte Eyeliner (I have been DYING to try this! Can’t believe I’m actually excited for a black eyeliner)

    This bag is just what I need during the craziness!

    • I had the same thought when I saw that mascara was gunna be in my bag lol I never leave the house wit out mascara on😂 I liked the powder they sent out by this brand not long ago but not sure about how well this mascara is gunna perform, guess we’ll find out

  31. I wish that Bobbi Brown lipstick would have been available as an add-on, so pretty 🙁

    • Sameeee

  32. This bag sucks. Why do i have a eyeliner and mascara. I got the toner, lip balm, and mask. I never get a lip stick and didn’t get a eye shadow palette. I opted out of eyeliner and mascara but somehow got both. Does Ipsy even listen to our peferences?? Looks like I’m skipping for another 3 months like i did before. Boxycharm, here I come!!!!

  33. gosh, i’m glad I cancelled ipsy glam plus last month…there products are not where the price should be..

  34. Bag twinkies with MSA! Love mine!

    • Same here! I didn’t make a choice this month and my bag is the best it’s been in awhile!

      • I always say I’m going to do that but then I wimp out because I want to know that I’m going to like at least one thing I get…

      • Same here! I was only able to this month because nothing called to me at all. You’d think I’d skip, but I liked enough spoilers to know I’d like my bag and I’m so glad I was right! Good luck 🙂

      • I love Ipsy. Rarely disappointed. However, my plus bags are probably my least favorite ever.

        I get two plus bags and they are identical (usually I’m fine with this. This time it’s a bummer).

        I’ll start by saying last month I was one of the people who received a duplicate item and they sent out an email apologizing, and saying they were sending out a murad lotion. Then weeks later they sent out an email saying do murad, they were sending a DOC matte lipstick instead. Ugh!! I hate these. I was bummed after being told I was getting the murad.

        Fast forward to my plus bags and each has a DOC Mattel lipstick in play it cool. Literally a dark purple. My whole profile is neutrals, neutrals, neutrals. I doubt I will even be able to rehome these 🤦🏻‍♀️

        My other 4 items were the Sunday Riley (my choice for both bags), the dirt mask, the eyeshadow palette, and black tarte liner.

        Better luck next month.

        Oh. And both of my ultimate only have 7 full size products (these two bags were slightly different).

    • Oh, someone said Twinkies! Now I feel like I need to make a “necessary” trip to the grocery store on Tuesday to buy “essentials” like milk, bread and Twinkies!!! I haven’t been out of my driveway in almost two weeks so I’m up for a fast store run.

  35. 3rd month in a row given the crappie black eyeliner and crappie dark liquid lip. I am finally quitting Ipsy

    • I love that Tarte eyeliner! 🤷🏼‍♀️ Everyone stays hating on the black eyeliners lol I like getting them though I’m probably the only person 😂 i wouldn’t want one EVERY month and I prefer a good brand like Tarte though so I actually chose the eyeliner as my item this month I love the brand and know I’ll use it up! You can email them an opt out of receiving eyeliner and they’ll do their best not to send you it anymore if you want to try that before cancelling

      • I’m opted out since I don’t wear liner and I’ve gotten them in 2 out of 3 bags since I stopped skipping (missed Nov, Dec, Jan). They told me oh well with the first one, so not even going to bother contacting them this time.

      • I’m opted out of eyeliner (of all types) as well, yet I received one this month. They’ve also been bombarding me with bronzers, which is a “rarely” in my profile and for which I have repeatedly provided the most negative feedback possible without resorting to profanity. Yet I have received bronzers in at least one of my 2 bags (regular & plus) for the past 4-5 months. Got a reply from Ipsy Care and got the “oh well, we’re sorry you’re disappointed” and an offer to switch my eyeliner opt-out for a bronzer opt-out. (Yes, they will only allow one product category opt-out at a time now.) Tried to put everything on pause but their website wasn’t letting me. New tactic to retain subscribers?

      • Even if you opt out of something there’s no guarantee you won’t get it due to the way personalization works, that’s what I was told when I opted out of masks.

    • I don’t like them either! I usually love my other items and I can at least give the liquid lip to my teenager.

  36. I’m kinda sad that the Bobbi Brown, Odacite & Girlactik weren’t available as add-ons to my regular GB. But, I was able to add full size Verso, the SR Martian toner, Ultimate bag, and Verb ghost hair mask and I was really tempted by the Kismet vitamin C primer (but I have a ton of full size primers to go through).

    • Same. I got the Girlactik but would’ve loved the Bobby Brown lipstick.

  37. I’m getting:

    – DOSE OF COLORS Liquid Matte Lipstick in Old Flame (Meh, was hoping for the Bobbi Brown lipstick, but the color is ok.)

    – SUNDAY RILEY Martian Mattifying Melting Water-Gel Toner (Yay, my pick!)

    – BLOOMEFFECTS Dutch Dirt Mask (Yay, was hoping to get this!)

    – SHAINA B MIAMI Mini Miami Eyeshadow Palette (Awesome, pretty palette! I really like the blush I tried from this brand too.)

    – TARTE tarteist™ Double Take Eyeliner in Black (Bleh, I’m opted out of eyeliners. Will give to my sister.)

    Good bag aside from the eyeliner.

    • I am getting this exact same bag, except I have very dry skin, so the value items, the Sunday Riley and the mud mask won’t work for me. My 150th black liner from Ipsy and more brown eyeshadow. Pretty unhappy. My regular bag is lovely though. 🙂

    • I got all of this but with a different color lippie. Happy with it all though!

  38. I got:

    Sunday Riley Toner (my choice)
    Eyeshadow palette
    Dose of Colors Lipstick in Old Flame (definitely will not use this)
    Bloomeffects Dutch Dirt Mask
    Tarte Eyeliner

  39. Shockingly, this is the best glam bag I’ve had in awhile:

    – Sunday Riley Gel toner (my choice)
    – Cela Creme Rose (Super excited to try this)
    – Girlactik jello gloss bomb (this also looks good)
    – Ciate London mascara
    – Tarte double take eyeliner (I love tarte)

    I’m not disappointed!

    • This looks like a great bag!

    • Great bag! I like my bag but definitely wanted the rose cream! Also, seeing the Girlactik here gave me much FOMO!

    • I got this same bag and in really excited about it!

  40. Another black eyeliner which I will never use.

  41. I’m pretty happy w/ April 2020. My box includes: Cela Creme Rose cream, Girlactik lip balm, Starskin face mask duo, Shaina B Miami blush palette (my pick) and Tarte eye liner. I give it a solid 4 out of 5 stars. I am opted out of eye liners, yet I have received one in Feb., March and now April. I have contacted ipsy about it. They claim the past few boxes (including this box) “best suit my profile.”. Whatever… please stop including eye liners and honor the “opted out of” portion of my profile. I’m very happy with the other four items in my box, though.

    • If you make a choice item sometimes the “box version” that best suits you could include an item you’ve opted out of unfortunately, I opted out of masks recently and they didn’t tell me I’d never get it they said “we’ll do our best to avoid sending you the product you’ve opted out of, but we can’t guarantee that you won’t receive it because of the way our personalization works” so even if you opt out there’s always a good chance you might get it anyways depending on your choice item that month and what other box varieties they have to go with each item 🤷🏼‍♀️ It’s kind of annoying I guess but at least they let us opt out of anything at all so that if they can do so they have a reference of something we might not want so much

      • I didn’t choose this month and still got an eyeliner which I was opted out of. It’s irritating.

      • That does suck but they just can’t guarantee you won’t get an item your opted out of no matter what even if you don’t necessarily pick a choice item either, I was more than happy to opt out of masks but I honestly am surprised they let us “opt out” of anything at all. It is a sub box you can’t just pick and choose what you get there’s always a risk you might not enjoy your bag or box, kinda like a you get what chu get and don’t get upset type deal lol. I feel like Ipsy does a pretty good job picking out products for people considering the demand is so high. I tried boxycharm ONCE and I really didn’t like it, I could definitely tell the difference between the Ipsy experience compared to boxycharm

  42. What are they thinking this month?
    I am getting:
    Two sheet masks.
    The Mud mask.
    The black eyeliner (which I opted out of, this will be the THIRD black eyeliner in three months).
    The mascara (which I don’t mind because I toss the one I am using on the 1st of the month).
    The eye shadow palette (my choice).
    I added on the 111Skin product and a lip gloss.
    IDK why I “need” two different types of facial masks, in the same month, or three black eyeliners in four months!
    Not the best month for me.

    • Deb- I am opted out of eye liners, too… and just like you, this is my third month receiving an eye liner. That’s my only complaint about Ipsy… even though I am officially opted out of eye liners and my profile & reviews clearly state I do not use nor want eye liners, I do still receive them. Such a disappointment. Anyway, I hope next month is better for you. 🙂

      • Same

  43. The Girlactik jello balm looks interesting! I’ll be looking to swap for it once swaps open up again.

    I’m glad I canceled, though. The only other product I’d be really happy to get from this selection is the nail polish duo.

  44. This is my first glam bag plus in months. Pretty happy with mine

    -eyeshadow pallette
    -face masks
    -nail polish duo
    -tarte liner
    -foxybae

    • Great bag! Congrats!

  45. No, try black eyeliner, MASCARA, lip balm, and face mask for the worst bag! Where is the color in my bag???

    • I’d love to enter the “Worst Box Of the Month” contest. Black mascara, black eyeliner, lip balm, hand cream and Sunday Riley (my choice). I got one add-on and it wouldn’t let me choose anything else. If anyone is feeling charitable, donate some of your hand creams and lip balms to one of your local hospitals. Hand sanitizer takes a real toll on the hands….it’s very drying. Lip care would be appreciated as well….there’s a lot of lip licking and biting (stress, anxiety, apprehension, dry from wearing masks, etc).

      • @DoxyMama, What are you expecting from a $25 box?? The Sunday riley product alone is an incredible value for this price. Sheesh, nothing makes you people happy…

      • Christina, I expect what is advertised. I LOVE my subs sometimes and sometimes I’m disappointed with others. This was not a good Ipsy month for me. It may be fabulous next month, who knows? I’ve been with Ipsy pretty close to the beginning, so I have a fairly good knowledge of how they operate. I believe the MSA comments are a good way to discuss the good AND the bad with other Ipsy subscribers. No, I wasn’t happy with my bag selections this month but even more so, I was very frustrated and disappointed that I was locked out of add-ons. And just so you know, the use of “you people” is incredibly rude. Somehow I sense that you don’t care. 🤔

      • DoxyMama,
        I agree, Worst Box of the Month (but IDK what Boxy Charm is going to “bless” me with).

    • How is it possible that after completely opting out of eyeliners 2 months ago, they have sent me a black eyeliner FIVE MONTHS IN A ROW? Am I being punked? I’m going to blame my sad bag (lip balm, mascara, mask, SR toner and of course, black eyeliner) on coronavirus

      • I have been opted out of lipstick and eyeliner and have received both 3 months in a row. I am finally done with Ipsy because not only do they send me the 2 items I have opted out, but they always choose the lip shade furthest from my profile as well.

      • I got the same bag. Eyeliner , mascara, toner, jello gloss, and a mask. My regular ipsy bag is eyeliner, moisturizer, serum, eyeliner, and eye makeup brush. It’s sad

  46. I can’t access add-ons. I can see the bag reveal, but there is nothing on the site for add-ons. This was the month we could pick several items, right? Help center is not accessible for me either. I just get an error message. Is this just me or is this a site wide issue. I logged on about 10 minutes after the go-live…..if everyone else can choose their add-ons, everything I want will be gone. I’m an RN and I have to work 13 to 15 shifts to try to cover those who are out. I need to leave now, and I’m talking about makeup….not very important, huh? It’s a happy escape/distraction for a few moments. It’s terrifying to work on the front lines of this thing without the things that will keep our patients and ourselves disease-free. PLEASE PRACTICE SOCIAL ISOLATION AND STAY HOME. COVID-19 doesn’t play. Stay safe, everyone!!!!

    • I finally got in. It allowed me one item (hand cream) but everything else was locked. Can’t worry about this right now though……just wanted to let people know that Ipsy’s site has been really wonky this morning, but it is now “kind of” working for me.

      • Bless you! We’re staying home! I’ve already gotten it. Still recovering after 6 weeks. It’s awful. We assume EVERYONE has it. It’s no joke super contagious and unlike any other virus.

      • Thank you, Alice. You are 100% correct. I hope you and your family will stay safe, stay home and maybe we’ll all get through this thing with a lot lower numbers than are anticipated.

        *and wash your hands…..A LOT!!!!!!*

  47. I’m normally not this negative and I realize I’ve received great bags before but I received the worst box ever and I doubt anyone can top it. Besides my choice product I got a black eyeliner, nail polish, lip balm and face mask.

    If you think your box sucks, it doesn’t…..

    • I got those same items, along with my choice which was the Foxybae leave in conditioner. I’m a bit disappointed too, as it seems a little boring, but my Ultimate bag and regular bag are amazing.

    • I get it. I don’t care for the nail polish colors. I hate gold and deep red and it just doesn’t scream Spring for me.
