  1. Hi! I’d appreciate if someone could help me. I just signed up for the glam bag plus today August 1 and it didn’t give me the option to choose 3 items as advertised. I tried looking everywhere but couldn’t figure it out. Help, please!

    • Check if you were billed and then contact customer service. They’ve always been incredible my helpful for me. I’m positive they will straighten it out 🙂

  2. Looks like choice just went live. Hopefully it did for everyone and not just a few of us. I’m pretty unhappy with the 2 products Ipsy chose for me, seems like they are trying to send me ANYTHING that is the OPPOSITE of my profile.

    But the choice for 3 items is really really nice. There is no guess work, you can see all of the items you can choose from, all at once. I was thinking perhaps one item you selected would prompt the system to then offer you 4 different products to choose on a different screen or something. Nope, you see all available products out of each group of 4. It’s pretty nice.

    What I am bummed about is I was not given the option for several items that I’ve seen other people receive, or some of the spoiler items. Looks to be a pre-set group of products for each person, rather than allowing us to choose from categories of 4 items each, it would have been nice to get to see all available items. ESPECIALLY when we are talking about high dollar skin care items like the 111 serum.

    all in all though, I think Ipsy is heading in the right direction with this rollout. FINALLY.

  3. Ipsy. Picked

    HUDA Beauty
    Cream liquid lipstick in Lady Boss

    Beauty For Real
    Shadow Stix 24-7 Duo in Midnight Marathon/Ever Starstruck

    My picks:

    Laruce face set
    Complex Culture powder brush
    Illlamasqua lip polish in glaze

    Added on:

    Sunday Riley ice ceramide moisturizing cream
    Glamglow brighteyes eye cream
    Estate Cosmetics x Bailey Sarian Palette
    Sunday Riley Tidal Water Cream

    • Ipsy chose the same 2 items for me. I’m not unhappy with this new system 🙂 It would have been a lot cooler if I had the ability to choose the 111skin serum, but I got a nice Murad eye cream, a nice moisturizer with SPF which I definitely need this summer.

      Also added on the Tidal moisturizer and the sleep scrunchies 🙂

      • the only reason i opted in this month is bc i wanted to try the 111skin serum and it was not one of my options! … but my friend got it as an option in hers :/

      • I really REALLY wanted that serum, too. But it was not an option for me anywhere except the add ons. I probably should have just grabbed it from the add ons, but the $25 tier products seems really messed up since thats the price of the entire bag, and a lot of people just got that high dollar item as part of their bag. I dunno. I suppose I didnt want it THAT bad since I didnt add it on. I really wanted to tho, just not balling out of control like I wish I was hahah

  4. Ipsy chose for me…
    Demi Matte Cream Liquid Lipstick in Day Slayer

    Cryo ATP Sports Booster

    My 3 picks
    Doctor’s Scrub Ruby Crystal Microderm Exfoliator

    Watermelon Burst Pressed Setting Powder

    Kajal Longwear Eyeliner in Gilded Bronze

    Loved picking my items!

    • Ipsy gave me the same picks and it looks like the same choice groups.

      The only difference is my Huda was in a different color and I picked the Illamasque (sp?) clear lip gloss as eyeliner and I aren’t friends.

  5. Choice is live!

  6. This morning, instead of the Ipsy website saying to come back at three to pick my choices, it says to come back tomorrow and see what they picked for me. Great project management, folks. It didn’t occur to anyone to change the standard text? I only have GBP.

    • my account says my choices won’t be ready until August 3rd. So they stagger it, and I’ll be last?

    • I got the same message–THEY picked for me?
      We were supposed to choose today at 3PM EST–NOT they picked.
      This is the last straw with Ipsy–I intend to cancel.

      • They pick 2 things for you then you pick 3 later.

    • same here. Im beyond irritated bc i never got my july gbp nor my Sunday Riley luna oil add on. So that, now the gap not being customized at all? I don’t get it. There really is no mention of choice, just says billing complete come back on the 2nd to see your bag. Iosy is really really letting me down lately

    • The Ipsy intro to the new bag choices says that choice doesn’t launch until August 1 at 3pm EST. That’s 1 MST.

  7. Ipsy site glitched & showed some people their choices this afternoon. (No one was able to actually submit choices, as far as I’m aware.) So there are a few more spoilers up on r/BeautyBoxes.

    I’m hyped — one person got 3 of my top 4 choices (Estate palette, Ciate powder, & Illamasqua gloss) in the 3 different categories. The only other thing that I REALLY want is the Murad SPF, & I don’t know if that will be a category choice, or something that ipsy picks for us. I could potentially get everything I want this month. 😳😭🤩

  8. just got billed according to the app. Everything has changed for August as well!

    • I know! I tried to cancel a few hours ago only to find that it had already charged me! Grrr!

      • Same thing here. 🙁

  9. I know that for each choice, there is a group of 4 to pick from. So they show us 4 products and we pick 1 of them. Then they show another 4 DIFFERENT products and we pick one of those, and so on. So I’m afraid they’ll put all the good stuff in one group so we only get to pick one of them! One group will probably all be black liners and mascara, so will have to take one of them.

    Hopefully that made sense! Lol

    • And I bet all the palettes will be in one group so we can only pick one.

  10. Anybody knows what time this will start tomorrow? I don’t want to miss out on my choices but don’t want to lose sleep for nothing either.

    Sorry if this question has been asked/answered before, I couldn’t find it anywhere.

    • 3PM EST

      • Awesome! Thank you!

      • EDT! Standard is winter time.

  11. Can we see the two products they selected for us BEFORE we make our choices? The language on the ipsy website is ambiguous about that.

    I know I’ll have an answer to that tomorrow – just wondering whether any lady here knows already!

    • On the App it says they will show us their 2 picks then we choose 3.

      • Thank you Rachel for taking the time to respond! Now I’m very happy.

        Would be “super happy” if I had my July bag.
