  1. So I did not do choice this month (like I said in my first post). Originally they had chosen a set of Starskin masks and a oil cleanser. Today those were gone and my bag shows very different things. I’m getting the Space Case palette (okay), Wander Beauty eyeliner (opted out of), an Ofra lip gloss (not happy with, I don’t wear gloss and always rank terrible), a Context Skin eye cream (I have so many, but I’ll eventually use it) and a BeautyBlender! Very excited for that as I do use them regularly and a backup is always welcome!

    I thought it was interesting that my bag changed so radically, I thought the two items Ipsy chose would be in the bag no matter what. I also don’t care if they are no longer doing opt outs, if that is true they should contact us and let us know.

    • Wow they showed you then changed it vased on choices made by others. Maybe do choice next time so you get more of what you want and need. Seems you kinda got penalized for not doing choice.

      • I’m actually happy to be getting a beautyblender. If I had chosen I would have just gotten repeats or eve more items that I couldn’t use.

  2. So I didn’t actually choose this month. We’ll see what Ipsy sends me, right now it’s not showing up. I was really disappointed in the choices this month. Items I had already gotten, items I have opted out of, and a whole bunch of lip glosses were the majority of my choices. There were two items I wanted (the Dr. Brandt scrub and Complex Culture brush), but they were in the same category. I didn’t want any of my choices in the first two categories because I didn’t need a repeat or something I don’t want and I have about 80 lip glosses that I need to use up already.

    Did anyone else not choose last month? What was your experience? Or, did anyone else not choose this month? I wish we could choose just in one category and not be forced to choose something from each one.

    • I have not confirmed this with Ipsy directly but I’ve seen numerous comments over the past few months that say Ipsy is no longer honoring opt outs.

      • I think this is true, because I opted out of nail polish, and hadn’t received any in two years, but received one last month, and it was an option on my GBP this month.

      • Agree. I was opted-out of eyeliner and didn’t receive any for about 2 months. Lately I’ve been getting them again.

      • It’s so irritating! I contacted them back in February because of continuously getting the two items I opted out of. They confirmed I was opted out and said that it just meant I wouldn’t get them as much. Well 4 out of 5 months is terrible odds!

  3. I was okay with my choices this month.. I was thankfully still awake when everything went live (thank you insomnia) so I didn’t have to worry about things being sold out.

    Ipsy Choices:

    STARSKIN Close-Up Coconut Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Firming Face Mask & GLOWSTAR Foaming Peeling Puff Set

    CONTEXT SKIN Vitamin C All Day Eye Cream

    My Choices:

    WANDER BEAUTY Wanderess Seascape Eyeshadow Palette

    NATURE’S CARTEL Eyeshadow Trio in Champagne Scandal, Tan Lines From Tahiti, and 90’s Nude

    LARUCE Essentials Brush Set

    Add Ons:

    ITEM BEAUTY Brow Chow in Deep Brunette

    FARSALI Rose Gold Elixir, Unicorn Essence, and Liquid Glass Trio

  4. I don’t hate my September bag, but it’s nowhere near as good as my August bag. It seems they stuck in a lot of older and lower priced items.

    Ipsy chose for me:

    Starskin duo: I love sheet masks, especially in hot weather, and this is a pricey brand that i would never buy myself, so i’m happy to receive it.

    Context Vitamin C eye cream: I love receiving eye cream, but i saw this was discontinued by Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus, and Birchbox, so i can’t help but wonder if this is leftover old merchandise they are trying to get rid of.

    I chose:

    Dr. Brandt Pore dermabrasion: I loved their anti aging dermabrasion that was in an Ipsy bag last year, so i’m looking forward to trying this one.

    Cela Seed to Skin: I received a mini of this and liked it, so i chose the full size tube.

    Colourpop trio: I didn’t really want this, but I didn’t like any of my options, so it was a whatever selection.

    All in all, i’d be willing to pay $25 for the Dr. Brandt and Cela items, so I’m not disappointed in the bag.

  5. My choices weren’t the best.
    Honestly I’ve seen a couple of these items in the points area where you can buy them with the points we’ve earned. My choice options were luke warm. Some cheap brush set and every color of the eyebrow pencil? I was hoping for maybe the beauty blender or Dr Brandt since my quiz focuses more towards those kind of items instead of the ones I was given to choose from. Believe me this is definitely a first when it comes to being disappointed so I guess I shouldn’t complain but since I’ve seen the options before hand in here it kind of makes you expected of at least some of the good ones lol.

  6. Ipsy chose out the avant discovery edit collagen intense radiance activator serum (ridiculously long name, and ridiculously high retail price) and the context vitamin c eye cream. I chose the Yensa bronzer and brush set, the Bretman colourpop lip set (there really wasn’t anything else in this category that caught my interest), and the complex bronzer brush. The choices were a lot better for me this time compared to last month. I do like coming on here and seeing what other people’s choices were like (for example, my choices were completely different than the ones shown in the post), it kind of reassures me that Ipsy is following my profile when I see so many products that I would not want not given as a choice to me.

  7. I’m actually super excited for my GBP this month!

    Ipsy’s picks for me were:

    – Goldfaden MD Brightening Elixir Protect & Repair Brightening Serum
    – Trestique Bronzer stick in Brazilian Bronze (I looooooooove Trestique)

    My pics for September:

    – Space Case Cosmetics Custom Eyeshadow Palette (love their formulas)
    – Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer
    – LaRuce Essentials Brush Set

    Add Ons:

    – Veriphy Skincare 20/20 Eye Cream
    – Pacifica Blush/Bronzer duo

  8. I feel like I’m pretty easy to please with the Ipsy Bag, but I was really disappointed in this month’s choices and add ons. I’m hoping next month is better.

  9. I’m a little bummed for this month, I wanted to be able to choose at least between the face cleanser and the beauty blender, but neither of those were options for me. Ipsy picked out some face masks and the Trestique cream bronzer stuck for me. My choices were mainly 80% lip glosses. So I ended up picking the Yensa bronzer as well (now i have two bronzers in thus box…. my only other options for that category were lip products) Then I chose the Item beauty lip gloss (this category was all lip products and a hair mist), and then my last category I chose the Dr Brant pore exfoliater because the other options were repeats or a cheapy looking brush set. I was hoping to add on the beauty blender but no luck :// but i did add on a nice looking pair of gold tweezers for $3, so i consider that a win at least

  10. PSA: If you got the free add-on from the August add-ons glitch, it will show up as a $3 discount on your add-on order. So keep that in mind if you are skipping add-ons! I got one for each bag. If you didn’t get the email from Ipsy saying they were crediting you a free add-on, I don’t think you’ll get it.

  11. Last month was my best bag since my first Plus bag when they launched and possibly EVER. This month it’s good, but I was a little disappointed by so many repeats. :/

    —GOLDFADEN MD Brightening Elixir (I’ll try, but their eye cream didn’t impress me)
    —CONTEXT SKIN Vitamin C All Day Eye Cream (Pretty sure I got this before in Ultimate)

    —FOXYBAE Hair masks
    –SPACE CASE Eyeshadow palette (had Seraphin Botanicals palette in another group, but didn’t want it)
    —GIRLACTICK Sparkle Balm Duo (based on Megan’s review of Macy’s Dec bag, also I just love lip stuffs)

    I wanted the Smith and Cult polish, too, but I like getting eye shadow more and I have several similar polishes. My bag is well-rounded and I’m happy, but I didn’t add on anything because it’s all repeats. I wish I hadn’t used my points to get the Maelle lip crayons because they were in add ons. :/ It would also be nice if I had received it already since I would have bought another if I liked it. Oh well.

  12. The choices look good at first glance, but some of these items are really really old … The colourpop x Bret collection is from forever ago and it’s not even around anymore…

  13. I purchased all three bags this time. All of mine are very good. The best ones in awhile. I am not sure about next month. The spoilers are not impressive. I got everything I wanted except Serphine Pallet. I was disappointed that it wasn’t offered in add ons. I hope they have some left and offer it next time.

    • Me, too.

  14. Really pleased with my bag this month. They chose for me the Starskin sheet masks and a Trestique bronzer. For my choices I selected the Seraphine Botanicals palette, the sleeping mask and a Complex Culture bronzing brush. I LOVE those brushes! Very happy all in all.

  15. I am so thrilled for my bag this month! I got:

    Close-Up™ Coconut Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Firming Face Mask & GLOWSTAR™ Foaming Peeling Puff Set- Ipsy pick

    Fancy Face- Ipsy pick

    Pores No More PoreDermabrasion

    Pomegranate Superfood Regenerating Sleeping Mask

    Replenishing Hair Mask (Set of 8)


    Strictly Curls Curl Defining Lotion

    Z-Tweeze Dual Ended Tweezer

    Also excited for the actual bag. Stellar month for me. Yay!

  16. I set my alarm and got on at 5:30 pacific time. Some add-ons were sold out.
    I liked what they picked for me: Goldfaden serum and an eye cream.
    Not impressed with 1 of my choice sections. Picked Yensa bronzer, color pop lip set, and another eye cream. Added on the Farsali set.

  17. Well, this is an OK month. I am disappointed I didn’t see the Avant Glycolic serum or the Beauty Blender foundation.

    Ipsy’s Choice
    * PUREHEALS – Cantella 80 Eye Cream. I am always up for an eye cream, so this is a good pick
    * GOLDFADEN MD – Brightening Elixir Protect + Repair Brightening Serum. Happy with this choice, too. Last month, they didn’t give the the Goldfaden product I chose, and I do like the brand.

    My Choice
    * DR. BRANT – Pores No More PoreDermabrasion – I just ran out of this, so I chose it because it’s a great product. Would have chosen the Murad had I received the Goldfaden scrub last month like I was supposed to.
    * SPACE CASE COSMETICS – Custom Eyeshadow Palette. I thought this four shade palette of metallics was pretty and useful. Nothing else grabbed me.
    * SERAPHINE BOTANICALS – Sakura + Sage Palette. Chose this for my daughter because I think it will be pretty with her coloring. I thought about the brushes because they are great, but I have them already.

    Overall, a fine month, but not amazing.

  18. Did anyone get the Avant Exfoliant? I havent seen anything about it.

    • I totally forgot about that! I didn’t see it at all!

    • I saw someone comment about getting the Avant in the October spoiler thread on this site.

  19. I think this is my best Ipsy bag yet! I logged on at just after 8:00am EST and was able to make my selections with no issues. My choices were pretty different from those above and the few overlaps were grouped differently. I would have loved to have had the Space Case eye shadow Pallette in my second group.

    My profile is very heavy on skin care and Ipsy has nailed their two choices since the choice option started.

    Ipsy Pick: Pure Heals eye cream
    Ipsy Pick: Goldfaden Brightening Elixir

    Group 1 Options:
    Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer (selected)
    Soapbox Hair Mist
    Hello Galicia sheet mask set
    Space Case eye shadow palette
    FoxyBae hair mask
    Laruce brush set

    Group 2 Options:
    Smith & Cult nail polish (selected)
    Colourpop lip bundle
    Item Beauty cheek duo
    Item Beauty lippie

    Group 3 options:
    Dr Brandt dermabrasion (selected)
    Feel Vitamin E balm
    Air Repair eye cream
    Girlactik lip duo

  20. Did anyone actually get the Beauty Blender (sponge)? Sad I wasn’t offered it

    • It was one of Ipsy’s choice for me, honestly I’d rather of gotten something else

    • I didn’t see it, i thought they were going to include the foundation in the add one but it wasn’t a choice for me.

      • The foundation was apparently only in the add ins for the Glam Bag

      • Super weird, I had the Beautyblender foundation listed as a possible add-on earlier today with my regular GB, but now I go back to look and it’s not listed at all. (It’s not even faded out with “SOLD OUT”, it’s just missing.)

      • Sophia – (I am responding here because I can’t on your post). It seems to me also that the foundation was only an add-on for Glam bag. I am disappointed because it was spoiled as an add-on for Glam Bag Plus.

      • I get plus and ultimate and had beauty Blender Foundation as an add on, not sure for what one as I am not interested.

    • I did, Ipsy chose it for me. I’d rather have gotten something else though.

    • I’ve seen a couple received it, in a make up group, on facebook.

    • Ipsy chose the beautyblender sponge for my Ipsy Plus and I added on the beautyblender foundation on Ipsy Glam bag.

      • It must be something in the name Amanda because I received the beauty blender as well then added on the Beauty blender foundation! I’m excited to try it!!

    • The beauty blender was one of my 2 items they chose for me!! I was sooooo freaking excited because I had just been talking about wanting to get a new one but then when I saw it in the spoilers I waited to see if I got it before actually purchasing a new one!!

    • The beauty blender is one of the two items they chose for me, too! I have tools marked as “often” and always give brushes 5 stars, so I’m thinking that’s why?

      Honestly soooo grateful for it, having a $20 item that I would have purchased for myself at full price included made me feel really justified in experimenting with my choice!

      • You were lucky! I also have tools marked as often and give all the brushes 5 stars but I did not get the the Beauty Blender. ☹️
