I am feeling the ipsy magic this month – in love with my bag! I wasn’t wowed by the selection this month, and they somehow managed to pick out basically my top 5 products for me. So excited!

Benefit the Porefessional Primer (I have the original and I’m super excited to compare, since I’m in the huge pores crew)
Hey Honey CC cream (I got their concealer in Plus awhile back and if this is a fraction as good, man…)
tarte Big Ego (y’all, I just really like the hot pink tube, okay? But also I hear great things and almost picked this as my choice, so I love that ipsy sent it anyway!)
Generation Clay mask (their purple mask is sooooo good. I wouldn’t buy their other masks at full size without trying ’em first, so it’s going to be fun to compare!)
EYELINER THAT ISN’T BLACK!! (Pixi in Bronze Beam)

I feel like having Plus choice and add-ons so that I can get what I really want and then review it highly has really, really paid off. If only ipsy would add an “opt out of fragranced products” option, they’d officially be my favorite sub box. (And let’s be real, they’ll never do that because it would be too logistically complicated!)


My bag is very meh this month, nothing I’m too excited for.
– The POREfessional: Hydrate Primer
– MARC ANTHONY Strictly Curls Curl Defining Lotion (choice item)
– NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Copenhagen
– SUGAR COSMETICS Uptown Curl Lengthening Mascara in Black
– SUVA BEAUTY One Eighty Brush


This is my 2nd bag since I started my subscription. I noticed a lot of repeat items from last month. Does Ipsy do that often? Luckily I am not getting any repeats but I am getting similar products. It’s pretty cool that although a bunch of us chose the same item, our bags look entirely different. I’m getting:

(CHOICE) Benefit cosmetics- The porefessional hydrate primer
Doucce Highlighter Mono in Glisten (I just got a highlighter last month)
IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream in Medium
Item Beauty Cheek Money in Mood (Just got a bronzer last month)
Shaina B Miami Contour Brush (also got a contour brush last month)
ADD ON: Illamasqua Hydra Veil Primer

Pretty happy with my bag, I’m getting:

Benefit hydrate primer
Pixi silky eye pen in bronze
IT cosmetics cc+ cream
Maelle beauty tinted lip
P/Y/T eyeshadow quad (my pick)

I’m actually happiest about getting a non-black eyeliner to play around with


My bag includes: Benefit Hydrating Primer, Evio Beauty Rejuvinating Mask, REALHER Highlighter in Confidence in My Glow, Tarte Big Ego mascara and my choice of the Shaina B Miami contour brush. They’re all items I will use, so nothing will go to waste. 🙂


Bag twins! I really like this one, I’m really interested in using the mask before makeup in the morning, these kinds of flash masks are great for skin prep, even if you’re oily.


I’m pretty happy with my bag this month. I’m getting:

Benefit Porefessional Hydra Primer

Maelle Beauty Lip Crayon in Berry

Oryza Camo Shimmer Eyeshadow Palette

Tarte Big Ego Mascara

Derma E Advanced Peptides Serum (my choice)

I didn’t do any add-ons this month as there really wasn’t anything that was catching my eye.


Same bag, with the same choice item. I liked the add-ons for plus a little better, I think.


In my plus, 2 items in my first choice & 1 item in my second choice were repeats of things I got last month. They were big items, not something small either. One was the whole brush set, yep you’ve sent that to me already, thanks. I think I’m done with ipsy. I’m not impressed anymore.


Of course the month I decide to skip they have Sundays nail polish. I’m going to console myself with the thought that I probably wouldn’t have gotten it anyway. Sigh.


I’m having a little bit of FOMO over those two deep nail polish colors, but, overall, I’m happy I skipped.


I am very happy with my bag this month:

-Juliette Has A Gun perfume, Musc invisible
-Sundays nail polish No. 18
-Maelle Beauty lip crayon in Berry
-Tarte Big Ego mascara
-P/Y/T Beauty eyeshadow mini quad (My choice)


I can’t get into add-ons! I keep getting the OOOPS screen. Is anyone else having difficulty? Maybe the website has crashed. I was in earlier this morning but want to go back in and add a Zoeva palette. My bag is meh. The only thing I really like is my choice item, Marc Anthony Curl Cream. I don’t understand why I wasn’t offered It CC in Fair or Purlisse CC in Fair in my choice options. I keep getting light. I’ve updated my profile recently so I know my skin tone is set to fair. Gripe, gripe, gripe! LOL

Also Beth

Yep, the website was having major issues this morning! The add-on link was just showing up as an image for me, haha. But it seems to be sorted now, or at least getting close to it!


I got:

* The POREfessional: Hydrate Primer by BENEFIT COSMETICS

* Youth Glow Vitamin C CC Cream SPF50 in Fair by PURLISSE BEAUTY


* big ego™ mascara in Black by TARTE

* 20/20 Eye Cream by VERIPHY SKINCARE

I added on:

Brow Chow in Medium Brown
Ultra Moisturizing Herbal Lip Balm
Volcanic Mineral Scrub


Really happy with my bag again this month! Changing my profile to say I’m “very comfortable” with makeup seems to have paid off.

I’m getting:

PACIFICA BEAUTY DESERT SUNSET MATTE BLUSH & BRONZE DUO – I’m worried that the bronzer will be too dark for my very fair skin (at least it’s matte), but the blush is SO pretty. I’m a sucker for coral blushes.

PURLISSE BEAUTY YOUTH GLOW VITAMIN C CC CREAM in Fair – Yay, I was hoping I’d get this! And in the right shade, too!

REALHER CONFIDENCE IN MY GLOW HIGHLIGHTER – Meh. I like Realher and I don’t mind highlighters, but I don’t think I needed two cheek products in one bag.

TARTE BIG EGO MASCARA – Everybody raves about this, so I’m excited to try it!


I added on the Shaina B Miami contour brush, pink Generation Clay mask, Georgette Klinger Volcanic Mineral Scrub (been wanting to try this brand, plus I needed a scrub), and the Item Beauty Brow Chow in Deep Brunette (yes, I know it’s a Tik Tok star’s line, but I just recently got into brow products, so I’ll try anything atm).


Pretty happy with mine. Last month was all skin care and this month is mostly makeup:

-POREfessional hydrating primer (choice)–love the original, wanted to try this.
Maelle lip crayon in berry–Love getting lip products, even though I’m barely wearing them. This is -a perfect shade and I almost picked it up with points.
-Oryza eyeshadow quad–I usually prefer brighter shades, but I have heard good things about this.
-Pixi eyeliner in black–This is a meh only because I should be getting this with points in a different shade, and I almost never use eyeliner. But I love Pixi and this is the type of liner I prefer.
-Marc Anthony Curl Cream–I loved their leave in conditioner, so I am excited to try this.These are pretty big samples too.

I wish I would have received a nail polish, that looks so pretty!


My bag is actually pretty good this month even though the assortment of products offered wasn’t that great imo. I’m getting:

Pacifica bronzer/blush duo (My choice)
PYT eyeshadow quad (almost chose this so yay!)
Benefit primer (ok)
Evio mask (meh)
Realher highlighter (boo)

I also added on the Pixi bronze eyeliner and Maelle lip crayon in nude which I’m excited for. Overall I’m pretty happy!

Miss love

All of the choices I had For Glambag are available for add ones except the Veriphy eye cream. I’m glad I got a duplicate in my other bag. I know some don’t like duplicates but certain products I don’t mind because they do get used often! At choice i really wanted my choice items and the derma e serum, Pacifica duo, PYT eyeshadow quad, shaina b contour brush, and the porefessional primer so I ended up getting 2 in my bags and the rest were $3 extra. So not bad this month for me.

I get two glam bags , I’m happy with the choices Very much!! I would really like if I received the Juliette has a gun perfume too as previously mentioned by another, glam glow bright eyes ( I got 2 last month through add ones and this stuff is my holy grail eye cream), and the oryza quad eyeshadow ( was able to addon for $3)

(More makeup Based quiz account)

1-benefit cosmetics- The porefessional hydrate primer
2-Purlisse- Youth glow vitamin C CC cream in fair
3-Realher confidence in my glow highlighter
4-Tarte big ego mascara in black
5-Veriphy 20/20 eye cream (choice item)

Second (More skincare Based quiz account)

1- It cosmetics CC+ in light (choice)
2- Pacifica beauty blush bronzer duo set
3- Georgette volcanic mineral scrub
4- Veriphy skin eye cream
5- maelle beauty tinted lip nude


3/5 items in my September Glambag are items I have marked rarely. I always check all of the months products before making a judgement call about the contents. What makes everything unusable for me is the wrong shades of everything! WAY TOO DARK cc cream and bronzer? No thanks. Tinted primer? Nope. Universal makeup brush, ok. Now for the funny part; I’m getting the Generation Clay mask, but I redeemed points for that item as well. Sooo, I’m getting 2? Lol! I only did one add on, the dual ended tweezers because for $3, why not?


*GENERATION CLAY Urban Defense Purifying Pink Clay Mask
*GEORGETTE KLINGER Volcanic Mineral Scrub
*SUNDAYS Nail Polish in No. 19 (meh getting nail polishes is such a lost product for me)
*TARTE big ego mascara in Black
*PACIFICA Beauty Desert Sunset Matee Blush & Bronze Duo (choice item)


My Plus was ready but my GB is still pending.


I skipped Plus this month.

I’m receiving…
Ultra Moisturizing Herbal Lip Balm
Clearly Brilliant Tinted Lips in Nude
Youth Glow Vitamin C CC Cream SPF50 in Light
big ego™ mascara in Black
Day-To-Night Eyeshadow / Cool Mini Quad

Overall, a decent bag:-)


That’s a great bag! I got the Maelle Beauty crayon in a previous bag, and it’s really nice.


Thanks Charlotte! That’s good to know:-)


I don’t really want the stuff in my bag, but at least I don’t hate it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

When I look at the full item list, the only thing I feel I missed out on is the Juliette Has a Gun perfume.

– It CC Cream in Fair (choice)
– Evio rejuvenating mask
– RealHer highlighter
– Item bronzer in vibez
– Suva brush


I got the same things and only want the CC cream that I picked.


Very sad I didn’t get the Purlisse CC and instead got the IT cosmetics, which I have a full size of that I never use. Not for me. Too bad Purlisse was not in add ons. Caved to the Goldfadeen Skin duo though.
