Here’s what I got:

The lavender nail polish ( I never wear nail polish, but maybe I’ll try it now that I have time. Or ill give it to my sister.)

Superberry YTTP mask (super excited! I almost picked this, and I’m so glad it ended up in my bag.)

Shania B Miami brush (I love getting brushes, even if I don’t keed them. This one looks like good quality so I’m excited.)

Serraphine Botanicals Lip gel (really excited for this! Love lip products and this color!)

Christophe Robin Sampl Scrub ( my pick. Really excited I’m in need of something to help my scalp.)

Add ons:

Bellapierre lipstick (this is for my mom)
Dermology Vitamin C serum
Wonder Eye Cream

Overall I’m happy with my bag. I mean I got 3 full size items in a 12 dollar bag so can’t complain much

leslie j

I’m so freaking confused right now. Why were ipsy bags early this month? I didn’t pay until the 31st so of course I’m just now checking my app today and still my products aren’t being shown. Also I saw where it said second chance for add ons. I’m just confused. I guess I missed the boat on that one 🚣

Flora

Leslie, I just logged on and it took me to a “second chance” add-on page even though I already added-on. Choose up to 8 products and it will ship separately from your bag.

leslie j

Honestly, I bet they didn’t have a ton of people adding on this month with people losing their jobs or just trying to save money so they were probably like well, lets try this again. 😁

Flora

But, not as big of a selection available.

Charlotte

Me too!

leslie j

Well at least I’m not the only one 😊

Dawna

New rewards points items are up!

Jennifer

Overall, I like my bag.

NOMAD Tuscany Intense Eyeshadow in Aperitivo (my pick) I generally love the Murad eyeshadows they’ve given me, and this looked like a nice shade, so after waffling over options I finally picked this one, and I’m glad I did.)

MURAD Nutrient-Charged Water Gel (Generally a brand I like, and I’m becoming obsessed with water-creams since Ipsy sent one a while back. I love them for my last step before sleeping – my dry skin has never been so healthy! I can barely even call it dry skin anymore.)

LOVECRAFT BEAUTY Lipstick in Fausta (I’m not sure I’ll love the shade as it seems to be really light/close to skin tone. But I can always layer or mix with a balm, and I’m not sure if I have tried the brand before or not.

AHAVA 24K Gold Mineral Mud Mask (The one meh item for me. When I first started IPSY I loved getting masks, but now that I have quite a backlog I only get excited if they are something really new like the charcoal pore thing I got last month that I finally used a few days ago and love – my skin feels so smooth and soft and my pores are way clearer.)

Helios Livin’ Lovely Nail Polish – I don’t usually wear pastel colored polish, but it’s pretty and the formula sounds interesting. I can always use it to paint flowers on top of another shade if it is too light, or throw some sparkle over it.

ADD-ON:

Neogen Dermalogy Real Vita C Serum

Technically I don’t “need” another serum or vita-C serum since I have a backlog, but I really like trying the different brands out. Vitamin C serums usually work well for me.

Brittany

I didn’t join until last night. Will I get another chance at add on’s on the 2nd or no?

MzBev

Brittany – YES – go now! The 2nd chance add ons are live, this morning!

Mamas3loves

No they did them early this month because of the virus so they wanted to get the bags out earlier so it didn’t affect anything.

Andi

I got-
Glossier moisturizer-my pick
Kaleido cosmetics blush
Estate highlighter
Bellapierre lipstick
Balance me eye cream

Add ons-
Luxie brush
Goldfaden hand treatment
Tony moly cleanser

I’m pretty excited.

Cheryl

You got a great bag. I also picked the Glossier moisturizer and got
Neogen Dermalogy vita C serum (overloaded on vitamin C serums)
Kismet vitamin C primer (ditto; and why 2 vitamin C products in the same bag?)
Space Case bronzer (a rarely and repeated bad reviews)
YC Collection setting powder (meh)

Absolutely no color in my bag. This is Spring?

Errmmm

I have a very similar bag, but I’m thrilled with it because I’m older than the typical Ipsy crowd and much prefer skin care over makeup.

Glossier (my pick)
Seraphine lip gloss (love all things lip-related!)
NeoGen Vitamin C serum (love all serums!)
YC powder (love face powders!)
Estate Highlighter (least fave of my bag but still excited because I’ve given away all of my highlighters in the past and now I am curious)

Added:
H2O+ Oasis face lotion (my 6th one, love this stuff!)
Aromatica Calendula face lotion
PureHeals toner
Hey Honey toner
Christophe Robin Sea Salt scrub shampoo
YTTP Dream Glow Mask

I know people can get down on Ipsy but I adore them. Even when I don’t like everything in my bag, it’s TWELVE DOLLARS (plus add ons, lol). So much fun stuff and I can create gifts for people with all the extras I don’t need or want.

LOVE YOU IPSY!

Lori

That’s a bummer. I’m sorry.

dia

My regular bag is much better than my plus bag. I would rate it a 4 out of 5. I will be getting:

Youth to the people sleep mask. My pick.

YC powder. I don’t know anything about this brand, but I use loose powder everyday that I apply makeup, so this will be used.

Balance Me eye cream. I’ve used this before, and quite like the texture and non-toxic ingredients.

Lovecraft lipstick. looks like a nice neutral color, and I appreciate the full size.

Spacecase highlight. Another highlighter 🙄

Lesley

I got a really great GB this month! There were a lot of good choices. I received:

Full size – Seraphine lip gel in rose
Full size – Kaleido blush in primadonna
Full size – Oryza nude eye quad
Full size – Luxie eyeshadow brush
Deluxe – Verb Ghost hair mask

So happy to get 4 awesome looking full sized products 💖💖💖💖! I added on these too:

Full size – Kokie concealer
Full size – IBY enlighten eye palette
Deluxe – Hey honey toner
Deluxe – Christophe Robin scalp scrub

Angela DeSilva

Yuo got an absolutely amazing glam bag!! There weren’t very many good choices or add-ons left when I was able to choose because my payment didn’t go through the first time they billed me and I had a big problem trying to change to paypal payment because all of a sudden my debit card stopped being accepted (its a prepaid debit Direct Express Mastercard from social security) I was so bummed because I have been with Ipsy for 3 years and they have been accepting it all that time! It was a real hassle took all day! I had to unsubscribe from each subscription (I get three glam bags and two glam bag plus boxes each month) and each bag had to be unsubscribed from separately and then resubscribed to. Not a very friendly website for that at all! But at least customer service was available to email me back almost immediately twice the first night it was going on and then three times today they answered me trying to help. Plus now I can’t see my bag spoilers but I added add-ons even though I don’t know what I am getting! What a fiasco, but I am addicted to Ipsy and Boxycharm, Allure, Sephora Play and Glossybox. It just makes me so happy and with what’s going on in the world I don’t want to fall back into a depressive episode.

Danielle

I kind of wish they had a “donate a bag” and/or “donate a product” for their front line worker bags they’re putting together.
I didn’t pick any add ons this month. I love that they’re donating bags. I’m happy to do a little contribution so they can do more of those.

Mamas3loves

Oh my gosh that’s such a fantastic idea you seriously should send them an email they could put it up on their page if people wanted to purchase a bag to donate that would really help I saw something on their page about the fact that they were matching money donated or something I think.

Jamey

I’m sure there workers get to take home and try products too.

h

This was supposed to have been cancelled, but I got charged and did not choose, since it was supposed to not be active:

Neogen C Serum (Neogen is fine, but I do not need more C serums)
Large Luxie brush
Oryza (wth?) shadow set
Balance Me eye cream (ugh! I have so many better creams)
Kaleido Cosmetics (wth?) blush (already have sooooo many blushes!)

Added on:
SR Martian toner (already have full-sized, but need one for travel)
Margot Elena Cottage mask

SquirrelyGirl

Same. Even though I chose to skip every other month..I still got charged this month. Not thrilled. I thought maybe I made a mistake, but seeing your comment made me confident that I did not.

Laura

I haven’t seen anyone with my bag yet, so here goes!

*YTTP MASK (my choice)
*KALEIDO BLUSH
*KISMET PRIMER
*PUREHEALS TONER
*ARACELI PACKER BRUSH

Add-Ons
*CHRISTOPHE ROBIN SCRUB
*SUNDAY RILEY MARTIAN

Overall? I’m super happy. Ipsy have been consistently sending out awesome bags (IME) since I unpaused.

Curly

I’m pleased with this month personally.
I will be receiving:
-Araceli beauty gel pencil liner
-Seraphine Botanicals- Berry + Juice lip gel
-Hey Honey! Herbal toner
-Kokie Cosmetics illuminating concealer in golden beige
-Aromatica juicy cream
Add Ons:
-111skin Hyaluronic Acid aqua booster (took a chance on this, I just hope it’s worth it!)
-Youth to the people hydrate + glow dream mask (excited to try!)

Ash

A got the bare minerals mascara, vitamin c primer, vitamin c serum, blush brush and calendula cream. I added on the tonymoly cleanser and oat face scrub. A lot of things weren’t options as add-ons for me. 🤷

Bett

Almost skipped, and very glad I didn’t!

*Tonymoly cleanser – Eager to try this. I generally wind up loving Tonymoly, and as always, the packaging is too dang cute.
*Murad Nutrient-charged water gel – was on my wishlist! Yay!
*Oryza Beauty metallic shadow – My pick
*Bareminerals lipstick in Courage – I rarely wear reds, but I actually look forward to trying this one for a change of pace. And if the color doesn’t work, I can always layer to tone it down.
*Luxie shader brush – I’m always happy to get a brush.

Add-ons:
Dutch Dirt mask
Eco lips scrub
Seraphine botanicals lip gel
Thann oatmeal face scrub

Best part: No black eyeliner this month, finally!

Looking forward to a very cleansing/hydrating sort of April 😀

Lori W.

Bag Twins as well! I also chose the eyeshadow as my choice. I think it’s a great bag🤗

Dani G.

Bag twins! I was super happy with my bag. I do wish I’d gotten a nail polish but other than that it was the best bag I’ve had in a long time! I also added:
Christopher Robin Scalp Scrub (AMAZING product)
Hey Honey Toner
Purheals Toner
Youth to the People Mask
(I’m a major skincare junkie)

I also took a BIG chance on the Ultimate bag this month and I was just as surprised and pleased. I’ve gotten about four total here and there and this was the best by far. I think I had an RV of over $350.

Watch out Boxy, Ipsy’s gettin’ back in the game!

Joan

My bag has Araceli gel eyeliner kind I use, TonyMoly moisture boost jel, Kismet vitamin C primer, Glossier moisturizer, Luxie lg shade brush. My add ons Neogen Vita C serum, Ciate London mascara, I love mascara wear it all the time. I am very happy with my April bag. Can’t wait to try everything.

Angienharry

I’m meh on my bag but really happy with the add ons. Getting:
Buxom mascara (my pick)
Kismet vitamin C primer
Neogen vitamin C serum
Murad gel
Araceli Blending Brush

Add ons
Christophe Robin Hair cleaner (love this stuff but it’s super pricey!)
Sunday Riley mattifying toner
Araceli gel pencil (I use gel liner on my lower water line and am totally out)

Emma

I got the nomad eyeshadow (choice), murad water gel (sweet), lovecraft beauty lipstick, araceli chiquita brush, and space case bronzer (which I would have liked more if they hadn’t sent me a bronzer last month that I really like…) Pretty great bag for me.

Added on the full size sunscreen (assuming I will be allowed back outside by August), TonyMoly cleanser, BellaPierre lipstick, calendula cream, and goldfaden hand cream. That’s the most I’ve ever spent on Add-ons! (And I had to talk myself out of the IBY palette!)

Deb

The murad, glossier and bare minerals weren’t in either of my 2 bags – nor were they available as add ons. They must reserved for the special people 🤣. My bags were ok. Not thrilled with the purple nail polish. Oh well – it could be worse.

Jennifer

I got the murad water gel, too. I thought it was interesting since they sent me the Tatcha water cream last month and a belief aqua bomb recently – but that might be why? I never got moisturizer type things in my back but once they sent the first water cream I loved it so much I gave it a good review. So I’ve gotten several of that type since. They are great to put on as my last skincare step at night. Ipsy seems to work by when it finds something I like it sends me loads of the same thing. Like, I never got polish for a couple years, but then they finally sent one. I liked it, so now I get polishes frequently. I also think I have given murad products good reviews before.

Dawna

That’s an interesting way to use the water cream moisturizers. I’m in my mid 40’s. I’ve been using them as a serum, then moisturizer or facial oil at night. I never thought to use it as the last step. I’ll have to try that. Thank you!

Patsy

The Murad was in my bag and my choice was the Nomad shadow. The Glossier wasn’t even an option for me, which was disappointing. I’d grade my bag a B-, but I maxed out on add-ons, so I’ll be very happy when it arrives and won’t have a problem re-grading my bag an A.

MzBev

I am getting the Murad and am not an influencer or anything.

Randie

I was really hoping for the Glossier or Murad too

Carol

I am pretty happy with my bag:

YTTP mask (my pick), Kaleido Blush in Primadonna, Kismet Vitamin C Primer, Helios Nail Polish, Verb Ghost Hair Mask.

The only thing I am not sure about is the primer (because I don’t wear foundation). I love the nail polish we’re getting!

LJ

I canceled all my other subs for financial reasons. I decided to stick with Ipsy for the price point, Choice, and the $3 add-ons. This is the 1st month in a while I’m actually looking forward to my bag as it’s actually pretty consistent with my profile:

Christophe Robin Scrub: My choice. Love this brand and haven’t tried this product
Hekios Livin’ Lovely Nail Polish: This is in my always category and I rarely get it, so I’m excited
Araceli Beauty Blending Brush: Don’t know the brand, but like brushes
Ahava Mud Mask: I think 24K gold is a little gimmicky, but I’ll give it a try
Kaleido Cosmetics Blush: Looks non-shimmer so I’m excited to try it

Add-ons:
Youth to the People Dream Mask – I love this brand and haven’t tried this product
Sunday Riley Toner – I’m mixed on the brand and it was $12, but I’m almost out of toner

Errmmm

You’re gonna love the hair/scalp scrub! I kid you not, my very very fine hair was SO shiny and full of body after I used this. I added it to my April bag and can’t wait to get my hands on it!

Laura

If you got the Primadonna shade it’s a shimmery blush.

Kim M

I got Balance Me eye cream, Bellapierre lipstick in Incognito, Glossier moisturizer, YC setting powder, and Sugar Cosmetics eyeliner. I don’t care for the lipstick color and don’t wear eyeliner. I’ll just give those to my friends. I added the Luxie 209 brush, YTTP dream mask, and the IBY palette. The palette was my big splurge. I’ve never added on a $12 item. But, it’s $25 on the IBY site so it’s a good deal plus it has beautiful spring and summer colors. So, overall, I’m pleased with April.

Dawna

Ipsy Did a pretty good job for me this month. Did not select an item.
-Murad water gel, yes!
-Kismet vitamin c primer, I’ll try just about any primer.
-YC collection loose powder in 215, not sure about the shade. Looked this up online, only 4 shades, website is odd, reminds me of fb type adds that take you to a website and then it takes longer than a wish order to arrive. I’m a little leery of this…
-Neogen vitamin c serum, perfect! I need serum!
-Luxie 209 shader brush, completely useless to me. This will be donated.
-Add On- realher eyebrow pencil. I don’t really have eyebrows anymore, I like the fact that this is waterproof!

Julie B

Happy with my bag and add-ons!

Tony Moly moisture boost gel
Oryza foiler metallic eyeshadow (my choice)
Aromatica Calendula juicy cream
Luxie Large shader brush
Buxom mascara

Added Seraphine lip gel, Sugar waterproof eyeliner (I really liked the Sugar pencil eyeliner I got before), Goldfaden anti-aging handcream

Shanrell

Seraphine Botanicals lip gel in Rose currant (excited to try this)
KALEIDO Cosmetics Blush in Primadonna (I love blush)
Araceli Beauty Grande blending brush (love getting brushes)
Oryza Beauty eyeshadow quad (may be too warm for my taste but I’m excited to be getting an entire quad!)
Goldfaden MD Hand Treatment (meh)

A pretty good bag! No add ons for me this time.

JennGwen

My first bag is horrible, all brown tones and highlighters. Hoping my second bag (that I can’t see yet) is better. No add ons

tammy g.

i’m just staying with the ipsy bag…after all you can buy what you want on add-on days, that’s in the other bags..
