  1. Anyone else not get emails sometimes to pick?

    • I rarely ever get the email to pick. I just set a reminder on my phone of choice day and log in that day to pick my item

      • Same. I feel like when I’ve gotten emails to choose from any of the subs, it was a little late.

  2. I chose the NARS lipstick. I almost never finish an entire lipstick so the size is perfect. I do love red lipstick even though it doesn’t matter since I wear a mask everywhere I go.

  3. Oh man…. I wanted the Bite beauty lippy that they spoiled earlier in the month. 😏 I hope it’s in my bag or at least in my add ons. Which it probably won’t because why would they ever send me a color that I ask for? 🤣🤣🤣☹️ Hahaha.

  4. I have spent ALL DAY debating adding on one of the The Balm foundation duos, save me y’all.

    I swear, I would resubscribe to Plus in a heartbeat if they sent foundation, er, ever. I realize it’s tough to do without asking us our undertones but I’m still on the hunt for my HG foundation and it would be SO helpful.

    • I have got foundation twice, in GBP. I’ve even received probably 5 BB or CC creams/foundations in my regular bag. (samples, in the small bag)

    • I’ve received foundation twice in my GBP and multiple times in my regular glam bag. This month Plus is supposed to have ABH foundation

  5. Getting the Nars lip color and super excited about it. Love the bag, too!

  6. I wasn’t overly impressed with the choice products but I did choose the Innisfree Clay Mask. My skin has been breaking out because of “maskne”, so I’m hoping this will help clear it up, and I have heard, and read, good things about it.

  7. I chose the Seraphine primer. That stuff is nice! It’s an instant tone balancer and subtle highlighter.

    • Full size, too.

  8. Didn’t see anything I had to have in choice, so I’m gonna take my chances and let Ipsy pick ’em all.

  9. I’m surprised… I figured everyone would pick the same few things but it seems to be all over the place. I love pixi liners, they glide right on so perfectly! I also love that Innisfree mask, it clears my skin up really well. I ended up picking the NARS matte liquid lip cause I keep getting nude lip products every month. I need some color!

    I hope all the liners and cleansing powder are add-on options!

  10. Nothing I’m super excited to receive. The Pixi eyeliners are good, but I already have RoseGlow, & I bought Matte Mulberry as an add-on a few months ago, & I feel like that’s similar enough to the Plum that I don’t need the plum.

    I ended up picking the Pure Brazilian leave-in since I’ve used it before & enjoyed it.

  11. I chose the loose powder because I’m rebuilding my makeup/face stuff this year and I now have a list of what I’m missing. That powder was #1 on the list (followed by blush and mascara I dont hate).

    So it was perfect timing!

    • Yes can we please see some blush!
      It’s January and I can’t be the only one who hasn’t had the sun on their face in while. I’d like to at least pretend I have cheekbones. Bronzer ain’t fooling nobody on my face.

  12. I chose the Pixi liner in Plum. I have green eyes and I loved the last Pixi liner I received from ipsy. I hope they are in add ons also–the Rose color is lovely!

    • Is it twist up or does it need to be sharpened?

      • It needs sharpened. You can use any regular old pencil sharpener.

  13. I ended up grabbing the Pixi liner in RoseGlow. I already have it but I absolutely love it so I’m not mad about getting a second. There are a ton of repeats on here, though, which makes me nervous about product availability. I have personally gotten 8 of the 15 items on the list in prior bags/months; I hope they’re just trying to clear out inventory and this isn’t going to continue.

    • I was just happy for eyeliners in colors besides black!

    • I’m getting the Pixi liner in plum, also already have it , but happy to have another because I use it all the time.

      You are not alone in already having most of the items they offered this month. I was thinking that just meant that I spend way too much money in their add on sales.🤔 One of the first times I didn’t buy anything in their shop.

      Hoping for newer products and better selections next month 🤞

  14. Like other people here, I too am confused as to why I’m being prompted to choose an item for my regular glam bag when I signed up for the February Glam Bag X. If it was supposed to replace our regular glam bag, why are we being asked to choose a product for the regular glam bag? I went ahead and chose something but I also emailed Ipsy for clarification since nobody seems to know what’s going on.

    • Read the bottom of the email confirmation for the pick, it says it all right there.

  15. I made a selection, but if I am getting Glam Bag X, I thought it was supposed to replace the regular glam bag. I thought the choice for X would be up, but it isn’t yet. Am I missing something?

    • If you have the Glam bag and Glam bag plus, X takes the place of the plus. If you only have the Glam bag, X replaces the glam bag.

      Choice for Glam Bag Plus and GlamBag X opens on the 2nd day of the month.

      • If that’s the case then why are we (regular glam bag subscribers who signed up for X) being asked to make a choice for the regular glam bag when we’re supposed to just be getting the Glam Bag X for February? Nobody seems to have an answer for this.

      • Same! I’m really confused why I’m being asked to pick if X us replacing my bag.

      • If you chose a product for glam bag you should have received a confirmation email. The email says this at the bottom “ *You’ll get your pick in your February Glam Bag only if you are successfully billed by February 1st. If you successfully upgrade to Glam Bag Plus or Glam Bag X, your Glam Bag choice will no longer be considered.”

    • It replaces the Plus bag.

  16. I wasn’t wowed by the choices. I chose the innisfree clay mask. I like the innisfree lip mask that I have so I will try more from this brand.

    • The Innsfree is amazing

  17. I chose the rose gold eyeliner to (hopefully) avoid being sent a black eyeliner. For anyone who did not already choose, the 10.0.06 moisturizer is a good product and the lip scrub is great… added that on last month. I would have rather received either of those again, so I will sh** if I get another black eyeliner anyway.

    • This made me laugh!

    • Dang, good choosing strategy, I should have though of that! 😂

    • I used the same strategy! Also sick of receiving black eyeliners…..

  18. If we are signed up for Glam Bag X and it was confirmed, do we need to choose a product? I went to look and it is giving me the option to make a choice, but I thought X took the place of the regular glam bag?

    • X takes the place of the Plus bag I thought

      • If you have both GBP and regular GB, GBX will replace GBP. If you have regular GB only, GBX will replace that.

    • If you have the Glam bag and Glam bag plus, X takes the place of the plus. If you only have the Glam bag, X replaces the glam bag.

      • Oops, we typed at the same time. 😉

    • Stephanie, that was my understanding too. I’m not sure why we’re being offered Choice, but I’m scared to make a selection in case it messes with my GBX.

      • I saw a post on FB where someone had made their choice but in their choice confirmation email Ipsy, it said something about how the choice would be disregarded if they were getting X.

      • choice confirmation email *from Ipsy

      • Just as Sherri mentioned:
        If you chose a product for glam bag you should have received a confirmation email. The email says this at the bottom “ *You’ll get your pick in your February Glam Bag only if you are successfully billed by February 1st. If you successfully upgrade to Glam Bag Plus or Glam Bag X, your Glam Bag choice will no longer be considered.”

  19. i got the nars eye liner….i love nars..but, i did cancel one of my two bags i get…it seems like the choices are getting to be the same everytime…

  20. I thought a Bite lip product was supposed to be a choice? I was tempted by the Nars lipstick, but I have sooo many lip products, including red liquid lips. I decided instead to go for the toner. I am constantly in search of toner, I already used up the YTTP toner from this month’s bag!

    • Same here! I was hoping the Bite Beauty pink lipstick was gonna be one of the choices…but I guess its just gonna be a possible regular product in the bag. It was such a pretty color! I chose the formula 10.0.06 for my choice product! I loveeee this brand!

  21. I picked the toner because I never tried it. I’ll probably stay paused for another month though.

  22. I chose the AmorePacific cleansing powder. It’s a great product. The full size is a splurge for me (retails for $60) so I’m happy to get a travel size in my bag

  23. Can’t go wrong with a fresh lip scrub… so that’s what I chose. It’s so cold and dry here in New Jersey, it’ll come in handy.

  24. I went with the Hair Mask. My hair will thank me for all these treats.

  25. This was tough. I ended up choosing the It Superhero Mascara because I purchased one as an addon last month and it has hands down been my best, most stay put mascara so far! I was able to put on mascara going out all day to take nature photos of animals. That’s unprecedented for me! I figured I’d take another one of something I already know I like.

  26. I chose the Nars lipstick for Valentine’s I like the cute mini lipsticks but the choices were boring I hope there is great add ons on the 2nd! Cute bag this month

    • Same! I own this one and another color and this lip pigment is insane; it doesn’t move. If you don’t have it already, prepare to be obsessed. There were so many good choices this month (haruharu toner, amore Pacific, innisfree) but I couldn’t help myself with this NARS.

    • I had the same thought! It just feels cute to get a red lipstick in the Valentine’s bag 🙂

  27. I was between the haruharu rice toner and the pixi eyeliner in plum. Went with pixi, love me some other that black eyeliners. I really love the mulberry shade of this pencil I got earlier from ipsy. Hopefully, the plum will be just as cool. Didn’t choose the toner because I don’t believe anything that has “hyaluronic” in the name, it does nothing to your skin when applied topically. However, the rest of the ingredients look good.

    • I went with the plum eyeliner too. Some of the skincare and hair stuff looked good but I’ll probably get an assortment of those in my bag anyway and I doubt I’ll get the liner since my profile is so skincare heavy.

    • Doesn’t hyaluronic acid hold like 1,000 times it weight in water? I was under the assumption it’s pretty awesome for skin!

      • In a nutshell, HA sits on top of your skin and does not hydrate anything deeper than the very surface of your skin. Also, it can make your skin dry unless you live in a high humidity level environment.

      • The thing with HA is there has to be enough moisture in your environment (or other layers of your skincare) in order for it to work properly. It’s not a great choice to use in the winter because running the heat dries the air out, unless you’re also running a humidifier. I stick to using HA during the warm and humid months.

        HA can penetrate further than the surface of the skin if it has a lower molecular weight. The most effective HA products have a mix of molecular weights – low to medium weights to provide deep hydration, and higher weights to hydrate the surface of the skin (which is important! Even surface level hydration keeps your skin comfortable and looking smooth).

      • Charlotte and KateQ, thank you for the HA information! I had no idea that winter weather sucked all the goodness out of it! I’ll either use it on a wet face or wait for warmer weather (which is around June where I live 😂)

    • I picked the pixi eyeliner in rose. I didn’t get the plum eyeliner in my choice list. I hope I can get the plum in an add on. I love the pixie eyeliners.

  28. I chose the Amore Pacifica Enzyme Peel because that stuff is absolutely amazing! The one we’re getting from Ipsy is tiny but I got the same size as a GWP from Sephora last year and it lasted me forever because you need very little powder to get the job done. The only annoying thing about the little sample size version is that it has a huge opening that you have to get the powder out of and it’s hard to get the right amount without getting way too much. The full size version has a lid that dispenses the perfect amount which is really nice. This little sample size version is still more than worth it though because this Enzyme peel has done wonders for my skin and really helps clear up any acne (right now my maskne) that I am having. It also really brightens up your complexion and makes your skin look so much healthier and less dull.

  29. I wasnt overly thrilled. But, I thought the toner sounded interesting and since I use toner everyday I went with practical. Also, it gets great reviews.
