Full details from Ipsy:

It’s time to get even more of the beauty you love, want, and can’t get enough of—because treating yourself a little extra is always a good idea. That’s why we’re totally over the moon to introduce the all-new Glam Bag X, a quarterly, limited edition upgrade to your monthly IPSY membership. Think of it as your all-access pass to the most-coveted brands, hottest launches, and need-to-try products in beauty. Your Glam Bag X includes seven to eight full-size products (worth up to $350) specially curated by beauty’s biggest tastemakers and celebs, and you’ll even get to choose three from a personalized assortment—which, BTW, includes dibs on exclusive product drops you won’t find anywhere else.

Every limited-edition Glam Bag X is curated by a different celeb, with the debut drop presented by none other than Patrick Ta, world-renowned makeup artist to the stars. He’s the artist behind some of Hollywood’s glowiest goddesses, like Shay Mitchell, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Olivia Munn, Kourtney Kardashian, and…well, that star-studded list pretty much speaks for itself. If you’re already wondering how you can get your hands on Glam Bag X, don’t worry—we’ve got everything you need to know below. Glam Bag X is only for IPSY members, so be sure you have Glam Bag or Glam Bag Plus in order to unlock your upgrade!

What can I expect from my first Glam Bag X?

Glam Bag X is our most extra Glam Bag yet, and the first drop of this quarterly upgrade will ship in February 2021. Since it features seven to eight full-size products from the hottest brands, all curated by a mega celeb, quantities are limited—but you can reserve your spot while there’s still space.

A new Glam Bag X will drop in February, May, August, and November (yes, mark your calendar now!). During those months, your Glam Bag X replaces your usual monthly bag, either your Glam Bag or Glam Bag Plus; if you have both, it replaces your Glam Bag Plus. Your Glam Bag X is valued at up to $350 and is only an additional $43/shipment for Glam Bag members and $30/shipment for Glam Bag Plus members. Talk about an amazing value, right?

You’ll love this part, too—during each upgrade month, you’ll get to build your perfect Glam Bag X during Ultra Personalization starting on the 2nd at 9 a.m. ET until the 3rd at 6 p.m. ET. Here’s how it works: First, you discover your four to five celeb-curated picks. Then, you handpick three more full-size products from a personalized assortment of Glam Bag X exclusives and first-of-a-kind new product launches that could include tools, accessories, and a themed Glam Bag. And finally, you complete Ultra Personalization with incredible deals on product Add-Ons.

How do I get Glam Bag X?

Glam Bag X is available as a quarterly upgrade for Glam Bag and Glam Bag Plus members, so if you already have one (or both!) of those bags, simply visit the Glam Bag X tab and click on the “GET GLAM BAG X” button.

If you don’t have Glam Bag or Glam Bag Plus yet, get started by taking the Beauty Quiz and telling us about your beauty preferences. Once you’re done with the quiz, you’ll have the option of signing up for Glam Bag or Glam Bag Plus. After you’ve made your choice and become a member, log into your account and visit the Glam Bag X tab. All that’s left to do is click the “GET GLAM BAG X” button, and voilà—you just scored the most-coveted membership in beauty.

What is the difference between Glam Bag, Glam Bag Plus, and Glam Bag X?

Glam Bag includes five deluxe-size beauty samples (one you choose yourself) valued at over $50 for just $12/month. Glam Bag Plus includes five full-size products (three you choose yourself) valued at over $120 for just $25/month.

Glam Bag X is only available to members with a monthly Glam Bag or Glam Bag Plus plan. Glam Bag X is a quarterly, limited-edition upgrade that includes seven to eight full-size products (three you choose yourself) that feature the trendiest brands and exclusive launches—and it’s all specially curated by a mega celeb. During upgrade months (February, May, August, and November), Glam Bag X replaces your usual monthly bag, so you score up to $350 in value for just an additional $43/shipment for Glam Bag members and $30/shipment for Glam Bag Plus members.

When will my Glam Bag X ship?

Already looking forward to getting that baby in the mail? Can’t blame ya. Glam Bag X ships four times per year (AKA every three months) in February, May, August, and November. The debut Glam Bag x Patrick Ta will ship in February and replace your monthly Glam Bag or Glam Bag Plus. As with your monthly bag, Glam Bag X ships shortly after you’re billed successfully on the last day of the preceding month, and you can expect it to arrive approximately two weeks after billing.

How are my products selected for me?

Your Glam Bag X includes seven to eight full-size products curated by one of beauty’s biggest tastemakers. The featured curator of the month hand-selects four to five of your products, and you choose the remaining three from a personalized assortment that features Glam Bag X exclusives. Your exclusives can include early access to new products, hot launches, and all those other FOMO-worthy beauty moments that you need to get in on.

When do I get to choose my Glam Bag X products?

During Glam Bag X months, you’ll get to choose three of your full-size products starting on the 2nd at 9 a.m. ET until the 3rd at 6 p.m. ET. Set your alarm, circle the dates on your calendar, write a sticky note—do what you need to do so you don’t miss out!

Ready to go extra? We got you. Be the first on the list and reserve your spot before we run out—Glam Bag x Patrick Ta quantities are limited.

  1. Can we say Boxyluxe 2.0? If anyone didn’t know that they bought boxycharm, they do now… lol

  2. Who? Never heard of him.

  3. Glam bag ultimate was a bad deal to begin with because you can get plus and regular for $37 which is basically the ultimate so I’m glad they are doing away with that. However, we should have the option of which bag we want to replace that month for those of us with both subscriptions considering they are allowing regular to upgrade as well. I would rather keep my plus like it is and upgrade my regular those months. Otherwise having my plus bag only have 2 more products in it (let’s be real, most months will have 7) for over double the price doesn’t feel like a good deal unless they are really spectacular, high end products with no fillers. I’ll either split my subscriptions into two different accounts and upgrade the regular bag or just not bother at all. I spend too much on makeup as it is. Lmao

    • Basically, it was not the Ultimate because you got eight (8) FULL SIZE and four (4) deluxe samples for $50….so, yeah….not really……I had all three tiers and took the Glam X since December will be the last Ulitmate box…which I happened to like……

      • Valerie, I liked Ultimate, too.

    • I wasn’t a fan of Ultimate either. The first box was a total dud and I cancelled immediately. I also sis not see the value in Ultimate. I get 2 Plus bags now and that provides me with 10 full size items per month for 50.00. IMO that’s the best deal. I normally don’t get duplicates because my I set each account up with different preferences. I think I will upgrade 1 account to get this new bag a shot and leave the other one alone.

  4. I’m so glad that I’m not the only one who think this is confusing AF! I’m definitely canceling because waiting for them to arrive is stressful now we have to sort out which box is which and how much it costs. Smh I’ll stick to amazon and Sephora.

  5. A bit off topic, but is anyone else still waiting for a shipping notification for November’s Ultimate bag? I usually get mine much earlier, and I already received my regular bag last week.

    • I am also still waiting on my ultimate i was charged the first, it was suppose to arrive by the 13th and still nothing. Not to mention about a week ago I signed up for a glam bag for my daughter and it has already arrived.

  6. Sounds interesting but I’ve seen a couple of pics with these spoiler products (like the one above) and I really hope those scrunchi’s aren’t part of the box!! My personal opinion but its something I def do not want especially when they are making it seem like its a super luxe box.

  7. They lost me @ “celeb-curated products”. I am so over every Youtuber makeup collab.

    • Right? Since when does being on YouTube make you a celebrity? Also, why would I want a celebrity collaboration? Unless it was Oprah 🙂

    • he’s not a youtuber, lol. he’s an established makeup artist who got his start with Gigi Hadid and Shay Mitchell

  8. Still trying to weigh out paying $25 for 5 full size products, choosing 3 myself, then an additional $30 for 2-3 more full size products. I signed up for it; guess time will tell whether the brands offered are upgrades from our usual never heard of that brand items that typically are included in our Plus subs

  9. On the months we get the GBX will we still get our basic $12 bag as well? Or just the GBX? I’m confused,lol. I signed up, I really really hope that Huda palette is in the box. It will have a retail value of $350. Could turn out to be really good!

    • seems like a replacement? which kind of bothers me a little like boxycharm, id like to keep the base. im going off this from the terms of subscription page when you sign up:

      “When you subscribe to Glam Bag X, you will automatically be billed the then current fee for Glam Bag X every three months (February, May, August and November) instead of the regular monthly fee for your Glam Bag or Glam Bag Plus.”

      • I’m so confused LOL. you mentioned it said, “instead of the regular monthly”. Sounds like instead of paying $12 4 x’s a year we will be billed $43 extra because the glam bag is the X. If that’s the case I will be cancelling this month or next. Ipsy has been fun but the only other box I get is Allure and with the price increase there I can’t take on another price hike even 4 x’s a year.

      • Eva – nothing will change for you unless you opt into/sign up for Glam Bag X. The increased charges are only for subscribers who choose to get GBX. You won’t be charged more if you do nothing.

        Also, my understanding is that for those of us that get GB and GBP and sign up for GBX, we’ll get GBX 4x/year instead of GBP, but will still get the usual GB 12x/year. If you have GB only and sign up for GBX, then you’ll get GBX 4x/year (with its higher charge) and GB the other 8 months of the year.

  10. Anyone knows if this will be available in Canada? Previously GBP wasn’t…

  11. I wonder what the Glam plus bags will be like for the months of Glam bag X for those that don’t want it?

  12. If I paid for the year upfront will I just be charged the difference during the X months or will I have to pay for a year of the X upfront or will they take me off the yearly sub?

    • I think if you have a paid yearly membership for Glam Bag or Glam Bag Plus and you sign up for Glam Bag X they will just charge you the extra money on the months they have the x bag.

      • So are we charged $12 plus $43 on those months??

      • I can’t reply to you Lynn but yes, the months of the upgraded GBX you will get charged the extra amount. It totals $55 so depending on if you have regular or plus it will be an additional $30 or $43.

  13. seems to be clear its not one brand only as the sneak peak lists other brands & it says it’s curated by him.

  14. I absolutely want the blush (any shade) and don’t want the brow product at all. Here’s to hoping Ipsy will look at my updated profile 🤣🤣🤣

    • I wish we could avoid brow products for every box honestly… some of us already have super thick brows we got bullied for pre cara delevigne, any filler for me looks like ted bundy x_x

      • Lol, Emili, I feel you. Unfortunately all that bullying made me overpluck my brows as a teen, and now I have bare patches.😔 So I will take all the brow products I can get!

      • Omg same!!!! They used to bully me for my brows and now that’s the trend! Now some of my friends are jealous that I look great even without makeup thanks for the brows 😃

      • You could always do a swap here in the MSA SWAP section. I personally would love to try the brow wax. Also I think those two might be a choice, I read you get to choose 3 of the products.

  15. I hope they will have some of the products as addons. I would love to get some of the stuff, but I really do not need to!

    • I asked the same thing & was told “products included in Glam Bag X will be exclusive to Glam Bag X members only”. Nothing will make me cancel glam bag X quicker than if those products are made available to others not subbed to gbx.

  16. I would have to see big time products for this…tom ford. Etc…I’m tired of small name brands..and the same products..

  17. Do we get to choose which one we want?

  18. Folks who have already signed up for Glam Bag X: when were you charged? I would have expected to not get charged until the start of February, as with my normal glam bag, but the wording on Ipsy’s site is confusing on this point.

    • My understanding is that the charge will happen in Feb. I signed up and haven’t been charged to date.

    • By my confirmation it looks as if charge will be Feb 1.

    • I was not charged no.

    • I signed up and was charged for my regular Ipsy bag. I have both the glam bag and glam bag plus, but glam bag was on hold. It reactivated it. So while I wasn’t charged for X, I was charged for the basic bag.

      • Similar thing happened to me, I was active for Glam Bag but paused for Glam Bag Plus. I was immediately charged for a GBP, not happy about that at all. I skipped November on purpose, and when I clicked on upgrading to X there was no mention of any charge until February.

    • Thanks everyone!

  19. Looks good but I need to see more spoilers. If they include that Huda palette then I’m definitely in. BUT for $55 I better not see a black eyeliner or mascara!

    • Ditto on eyeliner. I don’t wear it. I’m using mine for art!

  20. I adore the Patrick Ta lip products that I have tried. Definitely interested to check out some other products in his line. Do I need more makeup? Absolutely not. Am I spending money I shouldn’t to get this? Why yes, yes I am

  21. I’ve been all about simplifying things lately. I’ve nixed a lot of beauty products and just use the “bare” essentials (you know, mascara, lipstick and some sort of concealer/foundation.) I’m trying to do the same with skincare as well.

    It will be interesting to see what exactly will be included in this X bag, but I’m all about downsizing so probably won’t bite.

  22. Shaping wax looks good! Has anyone tried any Patrick Ta products before? I want to try them, but not if they aren’t any good ha

    • I have the tinted one and really like it. Reminds me a bit of soap brows sorta. I have a liquid lip from him as well and it’s nice, but the color is wrong for my skintone, but it feels nice on the lips. I really wanna try the blush, I’ve heard great things about his blush duos and the singles.

  23. I wish I was able to sub to Glam Bag X alone!

    • Same! I’m just at the point with my stash where I don’t need a monthly beauty sub, especially with mostly sample sizes, but a quarterly one with full size products would be perfect!

  24. I signed up! Haven’t gotten to try any Patrick Ta products before, and I can’t resist a good blush lol.

  25. And blush is my favorite beauty product!! I am a sucker for it!

    • I’m right there with you, Heather! Blush is my favorite makeup item… followed up closely by lipstick / lip gloss. 🙂

  26. I have some questions. I get the Glam Bag and the Glam Bag Ultimate right now. As of January, I will no longer get the Glam Bag Ultimate.

    I have to specifically request to upgrade to the Glam Bag X, right? My subscription from the Glam Bag Ultimate won’t roll over into this?

    I’ll get the Glam Bag 8 times a year and the Glam Bag X four times a year with a corresponding increase in price during those 4 times, right?

    • Yes. Correct. Yes.

  27. And so around January, expect Yosef to come out with the tearful “it is with great sadness that we announce…” RIP, Boxy. The competition bought you out to shutter the doors.

  28. It won’t affect me since I don’t have ultimate amd I won’t be upgrading . I just hope it doesn’t affect the great products we receive in glam bag plus and make it go downhill. I’ll just wait for reviews and for people to sell their Patrick TA blushes online because I’m sure people will be making multiple accounts so they can sell the individual products like they do now so I’ll pick and choose what I want to buy without upgrading and receiving products I do not want like the brow wax but will be able to purchase the blush from either someone who doesn’t want it or someone selling their x bag for profit like so many people do now!

    • Or maybe you’ll get a cheap China knock-off?! You would richly deserve it. 🙄

  29. Interested 🤔

  30. I upgraded specifically because I hoped there would be a Patrick ta makeup product!! They’re such great quality. Can’t wait for that blush

    • It says you’ll receive either the blush OR the eyebrow wax by the way

  31. I upgraded specifically because I hoped there would be a Patrick ta makeup product!! They’re such great quality. Can’t wait for that blush

  32. What if you do not want to upgrade? It says nothing about having the option of just keeping regular glam bag and glam bag plus. Is the curator going to be looking at your profile of preferences amd past reviews when picking your products? Somehow I doubt that very much!

    • If you do nothing, no changes will occur. You have to sign up to sub for X.

  33. I am starting to get like I do in a grocery store, overwhelmed by choices. Can’t they just have basic and luxury? When I can’t make a decision, I opt out. Personally I would rather have more control over color, skin tone/type, preferences and brands.

    • I agree.

  34. What of you do not want to upgrade? It says nothing about having the option of just keeping regular glam bag and glam bag plus. Is the curator going to be looking at your profile of preferences amd past reviews when picking your products? Somehow I doubt that very much!

    • If you don’t want it, you do nothing. If you want X, you have to sign up for it.

  35. Sorry, I do not understand this version yet. I am a Glam bag Plus member, so, is it $30 plus shipping??? is it Glam bag Plus $25+$30=$45 plus shipping???!!!

    • It’s like Boxycharm Luxe upgrade.
      So it’s $25 (GBP price) + $30 = $45 (shipping should be included, they write /shipment, not +shipment).

      • Sorry, should be $55, not $45

      • Thank you! ❤️

    • Four times a year, you will get charged $45; the other eight times a year, you will get charged $25. Shipping is included, not extra. This is only if you sign up for this. Otherwise, you will stay Plus at $25 a month.

      • Four times a year, you will get charged $45; the other eight times a year, you will get charged $25. Shipping is included, not extra. This is only if you sign up for this. Otherwise, you will stay Plus at $25 a month.

        Oops, $55.

    • It is a quarterly upgrade to your GBP. The box basically costs $55, but since you already pay $25 for your GBP, you would then pay an extra $30 for the box each time it’s offered if you opt in to GBX. There are no additional shipping charges. So your second option ($25+$30), but for a total of $55 and no shipping cost. That month, you would just get the GBX, no GBP. It’s basically like Boxy Luxe. HTH.

  36. I wonder if the new bag X will be only one brand…I dunno how I feel about that. Its rare for me personally to like every single thing from a brand’s collection

    • I don’t think it will be one brand only. The email Ipsy sent said “PLUS BRANDS LIKE HUDA BEAUTY, PAT MCGRATH LABS, AND MORE!”
      Patrick Ta seems to be the curator for the 1st bag.
