I am mildly annoyed by three doubles, but I think I’m going to like the brush, and I like having doubles of my favorites, and the duplicate moisturizer will be fine if I like it. Not sure what I’ll do with two of the same brown eyeshadows though.

Joyce

Ipsy knocks Boxy Charm out of the water. They allow you to skip and the products are always top notch. I haven’t received Boxy Charm in awhile because Ipsy seems to much better for the money

Christina

I cancelled my Ipsy as I felt the opposite. I was always skipping or being sent repeat items or things I don’t want. In the end I canceled (second time). I have Boxycharm a 2 month break but now I’m back on it.

Kaara

Yeah I cancelled- how many highlighters, bronzers and same shades of eyeshadow can one person use? It got boring instead of exciting. They really need to up their game and start offering more shades of eyeshadows, and makeup that’s NOT highlighters blushes and bronzers every month.

Patsy

I was mostly underwhelmed with my bag this month and also with the add-ons, I only purchased 3). I got:

Tatcha Dewy Skin (my Choice)
Firma Concealer brush – ok
Wander Eye Shadow in Bouquet – meh
Saem Mask Set of 2 – meh
Miami Blush in Bellini – looks nice and is matte
Girlacktic Eyeliner- blah, will give to a daughter
I’m not sure which of the above was my free product.

I added on: Belle En Argent Lip Gloss (I’ve decided I love this brand and have purchased three lipsticks outside of Ipsy)
Raspberry Macaron Hand Cream
Curly Hair Leave-in Product (don’t remember brand)

Probably one of my least favorite regular Ipsy bags for content in the last year; but I do think the bag itself is quite cute.

Amanda C

I got exactly the same products in my Ipsy bag. I did however choose different add ons.

Flora

HANALEI Kukui Lip Balm in Island Mint (obsessed with balms but the citrus would have been better as I don’t like mint balms)
LOTTIE LONDON Shimmer Squad Highlighter in The Good Girl (I use highlighters, just overloaded right now)
YENSA Skin on Skin BC Foundation in Light Neutral (love trying new foundations too)
WANDER BEAUTY Trip to Costa Rei Bronzer (love to try this to)
SKONE COSMETICS Brow Wand in Peanut Butter WTF? (the brow product is fine and I like getting them, but the color choice was not matched at all! I have dark brown hair and chose it in my profile. Yet this color is for BLONDES according to Skone’s website. Why didn’t they send me chocolate which is for brunettes?! And IPSYcare, didn’t care. (renamed to IpsyDon’tCare)
TATCHA The Dewy Skin Cream (my pick, I can’t wait)

Add-ons:
PLAYLIST Handle It Hand Cream in Raspberry Macaron
AWAKE Lip Therapy Lip Mask
TATCHA The Water Cream (glad this was an option so I can compare the two as I have normal/but sometimes oily skin)

Marion

If it makes you feel better, I looked at the ingredients for the Hanalei lip balm, & it also has peppermint in it.

Marion

*Hanalei Tropical Citrus balm also has peppermint in it.

Michelle

I joined Ipsy again after a long break. I am loving we get a choice item. My bag is wonderful!

Alicia

I like my bag this month it’s my second ipsy glam bag as I started last month.

I’m getting:
-THE SAEM mask set up 🙂
-LUXIE BEAUTY 640 brush 😄
-GIRLACTIK liner 😑 (just got a black eyeliner in the last bag but I’ll say this is the freebie and be happy, would have preferred a nail polish lol)
-SHAINA B MIAMI
Blush in Bellini ☺
-Pacifica eyeshadow hemp set😉
-Tatcha water cream (my pick 😃)

So overall a nice bag for me. At least there are some products/brands I’ve never gotten to try or would usually not purchase at the beauty store on my own since I use other brands normally.

My addons
-Tatcha dewy cream
-BELLE EN ARGENT
Lip Luire Gloss in Jealous of Us (looks pretty!)
-Awake lip mask (seen this at ulta and have been thinking about it.I know It’s more fruity in scent and has a bit of color than the lanagie brand lip masks that I own but I’m a sucker for lip hydration products (and I was sadly disappointed in my addon of the polar lip product last month, that thing was nasty!)

Allison

I think my Glam bags are better than my Plus and Ultimate.

Angela

Why do you get so many boxes? That’s a lot of money. Do you get the Ipsy Plus too and don’t you get a lot of duplicates that way?

Kenley

Angela- Yes, I also get the GBP and GBU and there are lots of repeats. My friends and family get the extras. I’m kinda obsessed 😂😂😭

dia

wow, seven!

Kenley

Yeah, I get 7 regular GB (was 10), 3 GBP, and 2 GBP (was 3) every month. I like to have gifts readily available to give to family, friends, and my daughters who are all obsessed with makeup as much as I am.

Marlo Taylor

I’m happy about this bag. I joined ipsy to try new things and here I am no longer in a rut! I got too many add ons for me though. I usually stick to one but I couldn’t choose and I was weak. Lol

SHAINA B MIAMI Highlight in Guava Glow
I may have to change highlighters to rarely because I have a bit of a stock pile now. Either way it’s a pretty colour and I don’t have one like it plus I’ve never tried this brand.

COMPLEX Culture Precision Eyelid Brush
I don’t have a huge brush collection so brushes are always welcome even if I’m not completely confident I’m using them for their intended purposes.

Awake Lip Therapy Lip Mask
My pick. It just looked like an interesting product.

BELLE EN Argent Lip Luire Gloss in Jealous of Us
It doesn’t look like my colour but it’s a gloss so it probably won’t be too dark. Maybe I’ll love it.

WANDER Beauty Eyeshadow in Bouquet
This colour looks beautiful. Right up my alley!

BUBBLE T Face Mask Duo in Hibiscus & Acai Berry Tea and Lemongrass & Green Tea
I can always use more sheet masks! These look interesting!

Added on TATCHA The Water Cream because FOMO, SKONE Cosmetics Brow Wand in Peanut Butter because I need to up my brow game, HONEY Jarret Clean Whip Cleanser because it looked interesting and Tarte Sea Quench Hydrating Primer because Tarte and I’ve been thinking about it since I didn’t choose it on choice day.

Haylee

Exact same bag! I picked the mask, too.

Danielle

Other than Tarte and a clay mask, probably the worst bag I’ve received.

concealer brush (i have more than enough)
illamasqua black eyeliner – I swear I received this brand’s eyeliner in another bag recently
naked cosmetics – mica pigment – boring
tatcha dewy skin cream – my pick
generation clay mask
uptown curl lengthening mascara – third one in three months

Starting to understand why everyone complains about mascara and eyeliner

Leigh

Kinda loving this bag!

Firma Beauty Concealer Brush – I’m getting the Complex Culture concealer brush in my GBP and it seems way nicer than this one. Hopefully this one will be good at packing on shimmers on my eyelid. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Tarte Sea Quench Primer – I just got the H2O moisturizer in my spring FFF box so I’m excited to see how they play together under my makeup. Happy with this. 😊

Foxybae Hair Mask – I got one last month, I guess they decided I need another. It’ll get used! 🙂

Honey Jarret Clean Whip Cleanser – love cleansers! It’s a super generous sized tube, too! 😁

Tatcha Water Cream – my pick. If I travel and don’t want to take my giant Tarte moisturizer, I’ll bring this! 🥰

Pacifica Wild Hemp Hemp Eye Shadow – I have eyeshadows set to rarely, but this one has mattes, and the “hemp” leaves are killing me 😂

Not bad, I’m counting the mini-palette as my 6th item and I don’t even hate it!

Amanda

Twins as well!

Amanda

twins! I’m excited for mine. I froze my GBP for the month to get the Glam Bag instead and am happy I did. I added on the Complex Culture precision brush, Curology acne patches, and Tatcha Dewy cream.

Summer

I have been happy enough with Ipsy that I decided to sign up for the annual plan (pay for 11 months get 12th free plus a gwp). And March’s bag is another excellent one:

OFRA COSMETICS Bronzer in Americano (my pick)
HANALEI COMPANY Kukui Lip Balm in Island Mint 😀
LUXIE BEAUTY 640 Pro Precision Tapered Brush in Periwinkle Blue 😀
SHAINA B MIAMI Highlight in Guava Glow 😃
WANDER BEAUTY Eyeshadow in Bouquet 😃
TATCHA The Water Cream 😀

Add-on:
BENEFIT COSMETICS The POREfessional: Pearl Primer (Thanks for the $2 credit, Ipsy!)

Denise

I’m literally getting the EXACT same bag pictured above. Not really happy considering I requested no brushes or moisurizers or masks or bronzers. Those are literally the only 4 things I mark that I don’t want. So many other great options, like nail polish or powder or eyeliner, coffee scrub, perfume, but no. The only 2 things I’m actually looking forward to, and that make this month not a total loss, are the Tarte Primer and the Eyeshadow, which was my choice item.

Irina

My previous bag was a one star rated disaster. But this bag is my personal gem:) I love all of my products and addons:) so happy!

YENSA
Skin on Skin BC Foundation
ILLAMASQUA
Black Eyeliner
MAKE UP FOR EVER
Matte Velvet Skin Blurring Powder Foundation
FOXYBAE
Replenishing Hair Mask
TATCHA
The Dewy Skin Cream
SUGAR COSMETICS
Uptown Curl Lengthening Mascara in Black

Kaylyn Dallman

Lucky! I was really hoping for the Makeup Forever powder!

Selina Roxanne

Bag Twins! Love everything in my glam bag this mth.

Maj

I love my bag! I got:

Hey Honey moisturizer
Youth to the People cleanser
Belle en Argent gloss in Jealous of Us (warm shimmery peach)
Shaina B Miami blush in Bellini (soft peach)
Naked Cosmetics shadow in dark bronze color
Luxie tapered eyeshadow brush
Awake lip mask (added for $1)

I will definitely use everything. A lot of people are complaining about the color of the Belle en Argent gloss saying it’s orange but it’s actually a universally flattering pretty peach color gloss that you can layer over lipstick. I’ve gotten at least 5 lippies from this brand and have loved them all! Try it before you complain – you might like it!

Charlotte

I got probably my best Ipsy bag ever this month!

I’m getting:

TATCHA The Dewy Skin Cream – I chose this

MISCHO BEAUTY Nail Lacquer in Unbroken – finally a nail polish in a color I’d actually wear!

LUXIE BEAUTY Pro Precision Tapered Brush – love Luxie brushes, and I don’t have a brush like this in my collection

GENERATION CLAY Ultra-Violet Brightening Purple Clay Mask – I love clay masks and I’ve never tried this one before

AWAKE Lip Therapy Mask – I was hoping I’d get this

BELLE EN ARGENT Lip Luire Gloss in Jealous of Us – I was hoping I’d get this

I added on the Tatcha water cream and the NudeStix Magnetic Lip Plush Paint in Bahama Mama.

Overall, just really pleased and happy with this month.

Lori

That’s a great bag! Congrats!

Cassie

Bag twins! I’m so happy with it- especially since I’m a lip product addict

socaldeb

Bag quadruplets! I chose the Tatcha Dewy Cream and I’ll use the lip mask. The rest – I won’t use that color nail polish, I’m not sophisticated enough to know what to do with so many different brushes, I won’t use a clay mask, and I won’t use a lip gloss with gold shimmer. My first response was intense disappointment with one of my worst Ipsy bags ever. But as I look at the full list of possibilities – if those were the only options, they did reasonably well. If they had to send me a brush (which they didn’t) at least it wasn’t another eye brush.

Dawn

I am receiving the exact same items. It looks like the Luxie brush is the bonus item. I do not use clay masks. My skin is old and dry. I have used this before. It gave a burning sensation. This one is to my give-away pile. I am looking forward to both lip products. Although I rarely wear it, the nail polish is a color I will try.

Beccah

*Mischo nail polish, even though I opted out of nail polish
*luxie brush in blue
*generation clay purple mask, which I got 2 months ago and 2 times before that
*awake lip mask
*belle en argent lip gloss
*tatcha dewy skin, My choice

Gallogator

I wish there was a skip choice. I only like the item I selected. The rest are going in the trash.

Lottie London Shimmer Squad
The coffee scrub
Generation clay mask
Hey Relax Propolis & honey soothing moisturizer
ComEx Culture Shadow brush
My choice > BELLE EN ARGENT
Lip Luire Gloss

Whitney Earl

That shadow brush is REALLY NICE and expensive if you look it up.

Julie B

Tatcha water cream (my pick)
Firma Beauty concealer brush
Illamasqua black eyeliner
Caolion bubble Pore Pack
Curology cleanser
naked Cosmetics mica eyeshadow in Mother Nature

Added on the other Tatcha cream. Resisted from getting the Balm palettes. I use black eyeliner like crazy so happy about that. And glad to see wearable lip shades in the points rewards so picked up one of those.

Kitty

Pretty excited about my bag this month! Though I didn’t get nail polish or mascara as a choice and BOTH of those things are marked highly in my profile. OH WELL.

THE SAEM Natural Avocado and Shea Butter Mask Sheet Set – I’ve become addicted to sheet masks and will throw these into my stash

YENSA Skin on Skin BC Foundation in Light Neutral – Also addicted to trying out new foundations forever hoping to find the perfect one

TARTE Sea Quench Hydrating Primer – On the fence here, primers tend to be a huge miss with me most of the time, but I’m looking forward to giving it a try

HEY HONEY Relax! Propolis & Honey Soothing Moisturizer – Kinda stoked about this

HONEY JARRET Clean Whip Cleanser – Curious to try this as well

My add-ons:

GENERATION CLAY Ultra Violet Brightening Purple Clay Mask – Hoping this will help my summertime oily skin

BUBBLE T Face Mask Duo in Hibiscus & Acai Berry Tea and Lemongrass & Green Tea – See previous statement about sheet mask addiction

Lisa

Lavender lotion my choice

Tarte Primer – I said rarely to primer I only like glittery ones but at least it is gel that smells like coconut.

Lavender nail polish I was hoping for

Bubbling black head mask was hoping for this

Hanalei lip balm in mint was hoping for citrus .

Mascara I hate getting mascara !

I added Tatcha dewy so my $2 credit didn’t go to waste . Even if the cream is not exciting I can reuse the container.

Victoria

LOVE that you’re reusing the container! The amount of plastic waste produced by beauty products is crazy. YOU GO GIRL.

Heather

I’m getting
Luxie precision brush
Tarte sea quench primer
Naked cosmetics mica in Mother Nature
Honey Jarret cleanser
Tatcha water cream (my pick)
Hanalei lip balm in tropical citrus

Laura

Twins!
I love this months bag ☺️ I also added on the Tatcha Dewy skin cream

Heather

I love it too! I added the dewy cream on as well to try for the cooler months!

Tammy K

I’m happy with my bag, it’s much better than what I have been getting. I am getting two lip products that both look orange, which is not my color at all. I’m hoping that it will look more red than orange.

MISCHO BEAUTY
Nail Lacquer in Unbroken

LUXIE BEAUTY
640 Pro Precision Tapered Brush in Periwinkle Blue

GENERATION CLAY
Ultra Violet Brightening Purple Clay Mask

AWAKE
Lip Therapy Lip Mask (looks orange)

BELLE EN ARGENT
Lip Luire Gloss in Jealous of Us (looks orange)

TATCHA
The Dewy Skin Cream

My add-ons:

HANALEI COMPANY
Kukui Lip Balm in Island Mint

HANALEI COMPANY
Kukui Lip Balm in Tropical Citrus

TATCHA
The Water Cream

Tammy K

I did notice that the makeup bag has that same material that reminds me of those Pajama Grams they were advertising on TV. If it hadn’t been for that commercial, I think I would have liked it better.

Charlotte

Bag twins! The lip gloss looks like a peachy-pink nude on Belle en Argent’s website. I think it’s going to be very wearable. The Awake mask is supposed to go on clear.

Dawn

It appears that the one bag variation is super popular on these posts. I am happy with my bag other than the clay mask. I have no idea on the purpose of the Luxie brush, but that is the bonus item. Probably why it’s the bonus item. Add ons were unimpressive, so I only spent an extra $10. Would have added the brow pencil, but I was seeing red😡 over my Plus Bag. Plus I didn’t have the energy to look up the shade “Peanut Butter”

Lori W.

I’m getting both of those lip products as well. The lip mask does look orange, but I saw them sample it on FB Live yesterday and it is colorless. On the Belle En Argent website the gloss is listed as a limited edition shimmery peach and it looks really pretty. Excited for both🤗

Tammy K

Yeah, I heard good reviews that is was really good and very nourishing for your lips. It’s not my color, but I’m going to give it a go anyway. My grandchild loves lip gloss and balms, she is only 8-years-old.

Jennifer

I’m getting the same bag
