  1. i cant pick an ad on i dont know why

  2. I still cannot see what im getting this month :(. i got an email saying my bag was ready yesterday but i still cant see it today.

  3. I am rather happy with my bag this month. i am gifting the pink fluffy bag to my little niece. Going to fill it up with stocking stuffers! My bag included-
    Caudalie vino serum-Yay!
    Feel cleanser-new to me brand so anxious to try
    IBY eyeshadow in Balance-I love eyeshadow so Yay!
    Illamasqua skin base 9-My pick
    Kenzie body lotion-not for me but will make a nice stocker stuffer for my sis!
    and I went overboard with add-ons.
    Full Size Sunday Riley CEO moisturizer-love the CEO line and I purchase this regularly so great savings for me.
    Full size Kate Somerville goat milk moisturizer-this will be new to me but reviews are rather good.
    Tarte mini mascara- purchased to keep in purse.
    Georgette Klinger seaweed extract eye cream-the worry over my children working in the pandemic is really showing on my skin, hoping this eye cream will help.
    lip balm-can’t remember what brand but it was peppermint scent!
    So all in all I can not complain about this bag. All products will be used by me or my sister.

    • Thanks for sharing all of that with us.

  4. I had decided to skip this month on the last day but then changed my mind and tried to go back and resume. Unfortunately after the 30th I was not able to resume. However I went to redeem points and it gave me the option to reactivate and then redeem the points. I did this yesterday and was able to redeem the points and get this months bag. I’m very happy that I did change my mind because I like all of the products that I got. I guess this is sort of a workaround in case this happens to someone else. I realized that the bag would be great to put some of the Christmas gifts or birthday gifts for my daughter in.

    I’m getting

    Beau Gâchis brush (choice)
    Céla Crème Violette
    Color Club polish in Mauve On It
    IBY Eyeshadow Into The Woods
    Juliette Has A gun
    Violet Voss in Nude Sparks (add on)

    • Interesting! Thanks for sharing your workaround!

      • You’re welcome!

  5. Best bag I’ve had in a while! (While I wouldn’t say my recent bags have been “bad,” I feel like the last several months really haven’t fit my profile.)

    – Benefit brow pencil (choice)
    – Cela Crème Violette (sounds good, but then the ingredients show lots of lavender, which I don’t like, so??? guess I’ll have to try it to see if it smells like lavender or violets… why not just call it Crème Lavande, tho?)
    – Color Club Get a Mauve on It
    – Hanalei lip treatment
    – Juliette has a Gun Lipstick Fever EDP

    The Ipsy gods heard me being bummed about missing out on the nail polish + fragrance last month and blessed me this month!

    • Wow! Total bag twin including the choice item. I don’t usually get fragrance from ipsy and this is probably the first time. I’m excited about my bag this month!

      • Yay! Glad you like it, too!

  6. I wasn’t enthusiastic about any of my choice options this month so I let Ipsy pick for me and I am pretty happy with what I am getting. My bag: Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional Pearl Primer, Estate Cosmetics Precision Liquid Liner (the one item I was meh about), IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream, Murad Essential-C Cleanser, Sugar Cosmetics Matte as Hell Crayon Lipstick in Viola.

  7. I’m getting…

    The Creme Shop holiday sheet mask duo. Picked this because it’s cute and I’m a sheet mask junkie.

    Lasting Smiles Lip Balm in Peppermint Creme. I love getting lip balms so I’m happy here and love any peppermint too!

    Purlisse Beauty Blue Lotus Eye Serum. I have several eye balms, creams and serums now that I have a waiting list but honestly they’re so expensive and necessary at my age that I don’t mind. Give me one every month!

    Violet Voss Eyeshadow in Pretty in Pink. I’m excited to try this brand and I’m glad it’s not a nude or gold or some other form of beige. Pink isn’t wildly experimental either but I’ll take what I can get.

    It Cosmetics bye bye pores pressed powder. I don’t use powder too often but I still am interested in trying this out.

    I’m actually really happy about these picks and the fuffly bag looks pretty cute too. The addons were pretty lack luster to me this month though but at least I saved my money.

  8. This month I am getting:

    Beauty for Real Lip Gloss in Nudist – we’ll have to see how shear this is if I will love it or not

    Illamasqua Foundation in 4.5 – this looks too dark for me (I’m basically see through), but hopefully it will blend well into my skin

    IT Cosmetics Mascara (my pick)

    Lasting Smiles Lip Balm in Peppermint Creme – my lips have been super dry lately, so very pleased with this pick

    Violet Voss Eyeshadow in R U Kitten Me – I’ve wanted to try their formula, so excited, but the color is meh

  9. Does anyone know what’s going in with the the glam bag plus I’m not able to choose or add on so I created another account as well to try to get them there . Nothing I can’t choose and add on any!

    • Sorry Grace I was having troubling this morning too and site went down as I was checking out with add ons. If you made a second account today you are not going to be able to choose anything until next month for a second account. You can only pick on plus choice day if you joined and were successfully billed either before the 1st or last day of the month I believe. Last month I made another account the day of and couldn’t pick either and ipsy explained this to me.

  10. Other than what I picked, my bag went back to mostly rarely categories. Looking at the choices and all the duplications that were possible however I guess it isn’t the worst. Would have loved a brush and the foundation but oh well 🤷‍♀️

    Beauty for Real Lip Balm – Rarely, and I loathe this brand.

    Benefit Cosmetics pencil – My choice. I’m excited and I’m viewing everything else as “free” bonus products. Although I just noticed this doesn’t have the spoliee, which is disappointing as I love having that attached.

    Cela hand cream – Rarely and not a huge lavender fan which seems to be the main scent ingredient.

    Murad cleanser – Rarely. I do like the brand, but their cleansers tends to be drying for my skin.

    Violet Voss in PinK – Sometimes, but I don’t really have a home for single shades. I wish Ipsy would let users have separate profiles per tier with the same email.

    • I chose the benefit pencil too (I’m obsessed but way too cheap to pay full price when there’s so many good dupes) but the pencil we’re getting isn’t full size (0.8) the one we’re getting is 0.025, so just under 1/3rd of the full size. Just thought I’d mention in case anybody didn’t know (I didn’t until I looked it up)

      • Bummer! I was hoping it would be close to half. Still happy to get it as I work thru them somewhat slowly and I’m almost out of my current one. Was your bag similar or did you get completely different products?

  11. The MSA bag is great…. I picked the same brush and my other products are the beauty for real lip gloss (fine), the nilotica (don’t like it), the murad vitamin C cleanser, and the kensie lotion (I don’t like heavily fragranced anything, but my sister might).

    I got one of the violet voss shadows and a body exfoliator as addons.

    • I got the Kensie too and, even though I like body lotions, I’m really worried this will be way too fragranced for me.

  12. I felt my bag was pretty meh this month and figured it was to avoid sending me repeats, but now that I see all the choices, my bag definitely could’ve been WAY better.

    I got:
    —COLOR CLUB Nail Polish in Get a Mauve on It (hope it’s less brown than it looks, I do love getting nail polish, though)
    —LASTING SMILES Lip Balm (meh, not a fan of peppermint, plus have sooo many lip oils and balms right now)
    —LAURA MAKEUP LABS Lipgloss in Myystic (meh, not using lip gloss at all due to masks)
    —KENSIE Life Beat Body Lotion (got this is add ons before and didn’t like)
    —GOLDFADEN MD Facial Detox Mask (my choice, happy to try, love this brand!)

    Hope everyone got bags they are happy with!

    • My bag is nearly identical except I’m getting the Preventive Measures passion fruit lip balm instead of the Lasting Smiles one. On the one hand, it doesn’t contain any products that I automatically know I’ll never use. On the other, there’s nothing I’m really excited about either.

  13. This month is so strange, I actually like my bag, but the add ons were definitely lacking. I had about 8-9 rows to choose from, or around half of everything shown above. So weird. Anyway! I got…

    Benefit Brow Pencil (choice)
    Sunday Riley A+ Serum
    Purlisse Eye Serum
    Hey Honey Day/Night Cream
    Laura Labs Lip Gloss

    I’m happy with this for sure! I added on the Hey Honey Serum (can you tell I’m into skincare just a little bit 😂) but that was all that really spoke to me.

  14. How do I see my glam bag spoilers without posting to facebook? I tried posting a private post and sending in messenger and it still wouldn’t let me see my spoilers. Normally I don’t have to do anything to see what’s in my bag. Is this a new update?

    • It won’t work on your phone. You have to do it on a computer, then it will work.

    • I noticed this too and honestly don’t appreciate this at all. To be able to view my bag I had to share and basically advertise for ipsy?? As a paying customer we shouldn’t have to go through extra hoops to reveal and see our bag.

      • It’s still annoying, but…

        You can always share it but set the privacy to only you, before you click through to post. No one should ever see it but you. And you can delete it later.

  15. I got:

    -Feel enzymatic exfoliating cleanser
    (I just bought a big Vasanti tube, of course lol)
    -It Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores pressed Powder
    -Laura Makeup Labs Glozzing Sparkly Lipgloss in Spelzz (this should help feed my lip color addiction since my GBP won’t this month lol)
    -Sunday Riley A+ Serum (My choice)
    -Use me Hair Wave & Curl Cream (maybe Ipsy objects to my straight do nothing hair. :P)

    All in all I’m ok so far. And the bag isn’t at all brown- yay. Lol I’ll see how I feel when I try things.

  16. A lot of repeat items. They need to have more exciting products.

  17. Terrible bag with 3 of 5 being repeats of items I gave 1 star for multiple times

  18. I’m getting the Hanalei lip treatment….that I redeemed points for lol. Oh well, it’s good to have backups, and I know I like it.

  19. Super jealous you’re getting the Caudalie. That was all I really wanted but it wasn’t a choice or in my bag. ☹️

  20. I am really excited for my bag! I wanted a skincare-heavy bag and I got it:

    Sunday Riley A+ Serum (my choice)
    Hey Honey Day and Night Cream
    Purlisse Eye Serum
    Violet Voss eyeshadow (Nude Sparks)
    Laura Makeup Labs Lipgloss (Spelzz)

    I am a little skeptical about the Laura Labs. I got the Moods palette as my add-on and the colors are hard to blend, look muddy, and fade fast, even with primer.

    • We are bag twins!

  21. This is a great bag! Mine was pretty terrible. With so many great products this month I am really surprised. Most of the products shown here weren’t even an add-on option for me which was a bummer.

    I’m getting:
    Artist Couture pout in shameless (choice)
    Color Club nail polish in mauve (yuck)
    Hey Honey serum (not a fan of this brand)
    Murad C cleanser (meh)
    Kensie life beat body lotion (yuck)

  22. My bag is decent this month: I would rate it 4 out of 5 stars. I’m getting:

    Hey Honey 24seven Day & Night Cream – I love this brand and have been pleased with every product I’ve tried from them so far.

    Purlisse Beauty Blue Lotus Eye Serum – I love skincare, especially eye products.

    Violet Voss Eyeshadow in Nude Sparks – The only product I am not happy about. I keep rating nude colors one star and I have even emailed about it, but I am still receiving the same colors every month. I have even tried changing my eye color in my profile to see if it helps and nothing!!! I am tired of receiving nude eyeshadows. I even marked nude colors as “rarely” on my profile.

    Sunday Riley A+ Retinoid Serum – My choice pick

    Laura Makeup Labs Lipgloss in Spelzz – Never tried this brand before and it’s a nice nude lipgloss so I’m happy to try it.

    Briogeo Avocado + Kiwi Moisture Hair Mask – (Add-on). I love this brand.

    IBY Beauty Eyeshadow Palette in Fireside – (Add-on). Getting this as a gift for a friend. She is building up her eyeshadow palette collection.

    Hey Honey Silk Facial Serum – (Add-on). Love this brand, and love serums!!!

  23. How can you reveal what’s in the bag without being redirected to Facebook?

    • I had that happen last month. I emailed them and they said it was a glitch.
