  1. Love the zipper pull on the regular bag. I might have to reactivate a subscription….

  2. For once, actually like the bag design!

  3. Loving this design

  4. I love the design! I hope we get an option to purchase the ultimate bag in a flash sale.

  5. Ohhhhh I love them! I may even get the ultimate or at least add in the bag. I was disappointed with October’s bag last year. I’m really into this!

  6. Love the bags. Great for Halloween. Great design!!

  7. I do wish the design varied within the theme for each bag and it looks like the Ultimate bag is the same construct of July’s Ultimate, which I dislike very much.

    With that being said, I do like them enough to want to buy all three for the first time, other than July, for several months.

    Ipsy will pretty much reel me in for all three if I like the bags enough. I felt August was boring so I only got the Plus and I love the September bags, which sadly I had to skip all three of, so I feel a reward will be needed for October. 👍

  8. I love these! I might have to subscribe to ultimate for October so I can get all three bags!

  9. Yuck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. I like the design this month, just have a comment/ question.
    Why does the Glam Plus always just get a drawstring sack and the others are actual zippered bags that can be used for a night out , travel etc?
    Please, I upgraded for the products but lost the cute zippered bags? We Want zippered cute bags!

    • They’re trying them out, see how it goes.

      The August Plus bag was boring, just pink midweight fabric, probably a polyester blend. It was also the first, so it may have been a little rushed.

      I honestly do not like the Plus bags as a class. They just seem to be larger versions of the regular Glam bag, with the zipper in a weird place. Me personally, if I could choose a “no bag” option I would. I wouldn’t even ask for a discount.

    • There was a survey associated with just the Plus tier after the change to they pick 2, you pick 3. It asked if you’d rather have a zippered bag and pick 1 product OR a drawstring and pick 3 products. From a company cost perspective, it’s unlikely to get a true bag and that much choice at the $25 price point. Who knows, maybe ultimate will be up for revision next – that’s always had an actual makeup bag in terms of pattern and size.

  11. Yaaaas

  12. I hate it. Definitely skipping!

  13. OMG I See You Ipsy,Love Love Love These Bags,My Favorite So Far This Year

  14. I like these a lot! So different for Ipsy. I love the Plus bag even; only wish it had a cuter pull like the others. This fits the October vibe!

  15. For those of you that don’t like the design & are Ultimate subscribers, I’ll happily buy your bag from you! Or….ya know, if you wanna donate it to me I guess I could take it off your hands.😉😎

  16. Love these! May have to resubscribe to GB for October.

  17. Big pass. Evil

    • Me too, on both bags. I wish they at least made the plus bag different like they sometimes do – without the eye.

    • Misha — evil?

      • lmao it obviously summons a lipstick demon?

      • Omg Louise, 😂
        Evil? 🤣 it’s makeup surrounding an eye.
        Get real.

    • I agree, it’s evil, i have been skipping 2 months ahí due to financial issues, wants to get October but i’ll skeep again. Is there any way they don’t send me that demonic bag?

    • Lol ok karen

      • Maybe they should speak with ipsy’s manager.

      • These bags are awesome. I think calling them evil is taking it a bit far. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion obviously but I’d love to know what exactly you all find so evil about these bags?

        Also lmao to the “summoning a lipstick demon” comment

      • Omg Louise, 😂
        Evil? 🤣 it’s makeup surrounding an eye.
        Get real.

      • 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

      • Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs. Why the shaming??????? You don’t have to post everything you’re thinking. Be kind.

  18. These are pretty cool.

  19. Doesn’t seem Halloweenish to me… if I don’t like the products then it’s a pass…forever wishing to have the option of skipping a bag for a product

    • Love it, definitely not skipping this one.

      • Sorry, didn’t mean to post as a reply.

  20. Wtf these are so cute

  21. LOVE! I’m super happy with these bags for October after last year’s epic fail. I’m tempted to get all three but I’ll probably just stick with my usual regular and Plus.

  22. OoOoohooh 👻 loving it says this Halloween baby (well will be 42)

  23. Wow! These are nice! I want them all! Although I can’t really afford the ultimate, I think I already skipped Oct for Ultimate. Just not worth the $50.

    • Sometimes you can buy the Ultimate bag by itself (I think for $12) during one of the flash sales. I don’t sub to Ipsy, but do get mystery bags when I love the bags, and maybe 2 or 3 months ago I was able to get an Ultimate bag I liked during a flash sale saving me from having to spend $65 (or however much Ultimate mystery bags go for). I’m pretty sure I saw last month’s bag available for sale too during a flash sale 🙂

      • Great idea!!

    • They always have the ultimate bag as an add-on for $12. You could get the regular bag for $12 and add the ultimate bag for $12, so it’d be half the price of the ultimate with stuff in it.

      • Amber, not always! I planned on getting the July Ultimate bag, as an add on. Nope. It was not available…not even during 2nd chance add ons. I ended up swapping for it, since I wanted the set of those. Since so many are talking about adding this one on, I wouldn’t be surprised if its not available, again. Same thing that happened in July.

        Although, with all the comments I’m sure if they don’t have it available, it won’t be too hard to trade for it or buy it off someone. lol

  24. YAY back to a spooky October this year! I’m so happy!

  25. Nice, but my annual subscription ends in September, and I’m going to take a break for a few months due to product overload. I might resubscribe again in December if I find that I miss it.

  26. Oh wow! Loving all the bag designs for October!!

  27. In LOVE with these!!! Can’t wait.

  28. Adorable… Very appropriate and festive for October. I just may have to get the complete set. Nice job, Ipsy.

  29. Love these! Best bags in a long time, IMO. Glad I skipped Sept for GB and Ultimate so I can splurge if the products are good. Since I’m not doing any of my usual Halloween activities :'(

  30. Love the black and gold, and the zipper pull. I do not like the design. The makeup icons ruin it. It’s better than last year’s October Boop-fest.

    • I love the zipper pull. I might try to make it a necklace

      • It will be cute!

    • I loved the Betty Boop bag…I use it as my face mask bag, as you only see the eyes.

      • Cute idea! I gave mine away with Christmas gifts.

    • Totally agreed about the makeup icons! SO CUTE…from far away. XD

      But I also totally know I’ll learn to love it. Probably.

      • True! They should have gone with mystic/astro symbols. Makeup icons make it boring.

  31. I LOVE these! If the ultimate bag is an add on, it’ll be very tempting.

  32. Love these! I may have to sign back up for October 😳😁😊

  33. Ohhh come to bigmomma !! I will try to get the big one also !

  34. LOVE these!! May have to splurge for the GBU in October!!

  35. LOVE all there.. I have never been tempted to splurge for the GBU until now….

  36. I LOVE these. Definitely grabbing the Ultimate bag during add-ons (even if they don’t make those bags as big as they used to….)

    • I like the charm on the zipper pull. I should try getting just the bag.

      I’m a Plus, but I have a feeling the bag will look cheesy in person.

  37. I love it!!

  38. Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday but my first reaction was ugh, hideous. Maybe it is the eye? Skipping all three.

  39. Ugh

    All I’m saying is the product choices better blow me away or I’ll be skipping.

  40. I get secret society vibes…like we worship the makeup? I appreciate that they tried something different.

    • LOL!

  41. I definitely like it 🙂

  42. Illuminati meet lipstick?

    • 😂 Clever. I’ve not had a good day so thanks for making me laugh!

      • Hope your day gets better, Rachel!

      • Have a better day tomorrow, girlfriend.

  43. Wow.. I love love love the bags.

  44. I would love the design more if they change the eye with something else.

    • I feel like I’m waiting for it to blink at me, lol!

  45. This looks like my eye tattoo I have on my back. I love the bag and can’t wait for what’s gonna be for that month. 🙂

  46. FYI Unrelated to bag design…

    I just emailed IPSYCare to check on my opt outs and was told they are not doing opt outs anymore.

    • They haven’t been doing opt-outs for a while now. They’re beta testing a feature that some people have in their profile to opt out of categories directly from there.

  47. I think it’s creepy looking.

  48. The eye sort of creeps me out… but I’m sure that’ll be an unpopular opinion, lol 😀

    • Luna, it is October and halloween. This is actually kind of seasonal.

      • I totally get that 🙂 I can see why they chose the design for October, but despite that, it still makes me want to scroll past the design really fast so it doesn’t blink at me or something, lol! Mission accomplished on Ipsy’s part! 🙂

    • dont worry you arent alone, it creeps me out as well.

    • I’m right there with you Luna, so I’ll be unpopular in my opinion alongside you.

    • I feel the same Luna! I like everything but the eye. I wish I could opt out of the bag, but since we can’t I’m skipping for the 1st time in a long time.

    • Not unpopular. I hate that evil eye

  49. I love this design!

  50. Ooooo. Love the bags!
