Tell me why instead of sending my Glam Bag Ultimate, IPSY decided to send me a Glam bag filled with items that weren’t even being offered this month. I skipped the regular Glam Bag this month. I was confirmed for the GBU and my choice of product and they even charged me! I’m going to be emailing them on Monday!

Melissa Majors

Why did I get 2 pallets in my bag!! They have to do better or I’lll go elsewhere

If anyone wants to get rid of their GBP and/or GBU bag this month, I would be super interested. My daughter loves the bags and the positive images of the women displayed in their bathing suits. She says they also look kind of like the causebox design from their box we recently received. She wants use them all on a bookshelf in her dorm room next to her Women in Science Lego Set. She is so much more creative than her mother, lol…If interested in letting go of either bag or both would be great please reach out phatpatti82 at Gmail dot com


I might be in the minority, but I am actually thrilled with my GBU this month. It was my GBP that was terrible. I got:

– Laura Geller Setting Spray
– Dr. Brandt Primer
– Ciate London Mascara
– Huda Beauty Sponge
– H20+ Gel Cream
– Sunday Riley Face Oil
– Yensa Lip Oil
– TheBalm Cosmetics Blush Palette
– Laruce Brush Set
– Biorace Clay Mask
– Doucce Eyeshadow Palette
– Murad Moisturizer

The only thing I won’t use is the Biorace mask but everything else is great!


Almost bag twins! I didn’t get the sponge or mascara. Instead I got the blueberry cleanser (yay) & Wander brow gel (duplicate from last month but I’ll definitely use it). I also like my bag. Actually I’m pleased with all 3 levels I get. Yeah I would’ve preferred some items over what I got but there are so many things to be upset about….beauty subs aren’t one of them.


I got a repeat from last month, emailed, and was told they are working on the issue? Maybe it happened to quite a few people?

Sarah Hellstern

I got a repeat as well and they just emailed me (I didn’t contact them) saying it was due to their supply chain being impacted from Covid. I don’t mind my dup though bc I really liked it (murad spf moisturizer). They also said they are giving me 600 points so I can redeem something. I’m okay with it.


Would anyone bill willing to sell me their Cela Creme Rose?


So glad I skipped this month, thought I would have FOMO, but nope, I don’t.

Beth in Oklahoma

Same here. I think I already have several of these products from other bags.

Nicole Grantier

You are my box twin! I can’t say it’s my favorite box.. or even a good box, but I also know that it’s probably more difficult right now to be coordinating with companies and bringing in all sorts of new and exciting products. There’s a lot of unknowns and delays out there. I’m going to crack it up to that and hope that as things get back to normal, so will our subscription boxes.

Pretty much every order I’ve made recently, from Amazon to Etsy to target, have had so many out of stock items and huge delays in shipping. I’m sure Ipsy is dealing with the same…

I have three accounts with a total of two of each bag, so lots and lots of these are repeat items for me personally. If I received it on one account last time, I received it on the other this time. That’s not their fault. However, I have received the brush set before in my plus bag, and I’m now receiving two of them this time (a set in each ultimate). Which means I’m receiving repeat products on the same account… That disappoints me a bit, but oh well. They are good for gifting, and I do use the ones I have, so backup isn’t bad..


Never been more glad I skipped. This is the worst ultimate ive ever seen.

jordan hazan

Yea! I thought I was the only one! So disappointed with this July one too 😥😣🙄


I’m so glad I paused my Ultimate this month. Last month was great – this month is just sad. My Plus isn’t any better at all. Lots of repeats. I hope next month gets better!

Nicole Sustaire

I was wandering why there was no spoilers out. It was because almost everything is repeats. I got the same primer in both bags. Last month was the best box yet .this one probably the worst.


There WERE spoilers. This definitely wasn’t the worst box. That honor goes to the disastrous Betty Boop box!


I got:

setting spray (fine)
primer (I have one already, but I like it, so I don’t mind having another for when my current runs out)
lip oil (will definitely use)
brush set (fine)
thebalm palette (fine)
blush and highlight palette (fine)
brow gel (will use)
murad sunscreen (my choice)

sunday riley (will probably pass on to someone who needs it)
h2o gel cream (fine)
pearl clay mask (will use)
coffee scrub (I’m going to use this just on my feet after reading about how messy it is)

I don’t conside rthis a super exciting ultimate bag, but the cost of the sunscreen, which I definitely wanted and will use every day, covers the cost of the bag, and I’m not mad about having more brushes or clear brow gel.


I would be upset with this bag. I have a lot of these products from Plus, I have never gotten Ultimate. But I already have- Dr. Brandt, Huda sponge, Cela lotion (love!), Shaina B pallet, Naturelab, and TheBalm pic perfect, wasn’t that like the big choice for Plus a couple of months ago? pic perfect or day2night.


Gotta love people who gripe about a bag they’re not even subscribed to?! Jeez!!

Tara W

Beth, I hear you! I live in Washington state and mine take around 20 days to get me. :/ I’m so excited on reveal/add-on day but by the end of the month I’m like…”Oh. That.”


@Errmmm Yes!!! You took the words right out of my mouth! I get all three levels & my only issue is having to wait for what seems like forever to get my subs. Like after reveal, I’m ready to get my hands on all those fabulous products. Like right now, lol! #firstworldproblems


People seem to be chomping at the bit every month to be pissed off about their bags…I will never understand it. There would only be about 4 comments total on MSA if they allowed only positive comments…….it’s like a subculture of necessary griping.

All I know is for the cost of any of the three bag options, you’re ALWAYS getting a good deal. And if you don’t want to try random products that you don’t have any control over each month, stop your subscriptions and go to to pay retail.


Oh, I didn’t realize that I had to be subbed to this particular tier in order to have an opinion.
Hope I didn’t offend anyone…

Kathy S Piccini

Im glad I cancelled this awhile back. Id only want the Tatchs & Glow recipe blueberry bounce cleanser. Bad bad bad


Almost everything here except the Sunday Riley is a repeat and I’ve gotten all in my regular or plus bags. So glad I never started on the $50 a month ultimate subscription. Not impressed in the least. Tried to submit and it said duplicate comment which it is not!


Guess it was hmmm. Hope my other subs don’t have all repeats.

Actually only about half were repeats. Since they try not to send repeats IF you got a repeat it would have only been one item. Many of these are full size & therefore wouldn’t usually have been in the basic gb sub. I DO get all 3 levels. I did receive a duplicate item but one was my choice item so I’m actually thrilled I’m getting 2. I find it ironic that you think you’d be getting ALL repeats IF you got ultimate, but don’t actually sub to all 3.


I have had Ultimate since the first month and I sub to all three (3) bags too. Only TWICE in Ultimate did I receive repeats and Ipsy GRACIOUSLY offered me points to make up for it. Very happy with ALL three bags! Anything I cannot use I pass along to someone that can and they are always excited to get my Ipsy cast offs.


It seems to me that with so many repeats, they’d have let us know… I know I’d have likely opted out of at least one bag in the Ultimate category.


I’ve sent them an email with how disappointed I am in this month’s products. Any of the products I would have been excited about, like the Murad eye cream or the Sunday Riley, are sample sizes. I’m getting tired of them counting things like a sponge as full size items. $50 only to get ripped off on any of the good items is very disappointing.


Worse Ultimate yet. All repeat products, but I get it, cause if COVID and all. Lack of spoilers was a clue.


ehh it’s kind of on par with the first and that had 0 excuses. They also responded with ultimate doesn’t mean prestigious or higher quality when people complained. I don’t think it’s COVID related just ipsy having a cheap month. or So happy I stuck to the regular glam bag though I can add on the one full size item I actually would want and still fall at less than half the ultimate price.


I don’t see any combination of 12 items that would have been worth the $50 to me.


Not happy with my ultimate this time. They gave me a blush pallet they had already given me a few months ago. A lot of the items seem like repeats.


Same, I got three repeats. One was the same Dr. Brandt primer across two bags. The eyeliner i got last month and the other was something I got a while ago but didn’t like it. The rest of the items are mostly rarely and sometimes items. I did get a “always” item which is a liquid lipstick but where am I going to wear that too? I did wear a beautiful red lipstick last night because i was trying to cheer myself up, I woke up forgetting to take off the lipstick last night…and well it looked like a murder scene on my pillow…so yah duds all around


What a disappointing box! I’m getting the same eye cream I got last month, just a trial size instead. I purchased the Balm palette as an add on in March, and am getting another one. I have no patience for Doucce and am confused why I’m getting two eyeshadow palettes in the same box.

Coconut makes me break out, so I’ll be passing along the setting spray, I’m oily anyway, so I don’t need something that makes me dewy. I know it’s not from Ipsy, but I have the primer already and it kinda stings when I wear it. I’m also disappointed in getting a wine colored lipstick in June. What’s most frustrating is not being able to figure out full and sample sizes.

The past few months of ultimate have been pretty impressive, that’s why I paused plus instead. Now I wonder if I should have switched that. I probably would have gotten another mascara or eyeliner in plus though since I opted out of those and get them 3/4 of the time in plus!
