Ipsy Glam Bag X February 2021 Spoilers Round #3!


We have more spoilers for the first Ipsy Glam Bag X!  Ipsy Glam Bag X is the new quarterly, limited edition upgrade to your monthly IPSY membership.

FYI – The February bag is sold out but you can use this link to reserve your spot for the May 2021 Glam Bag X! 

The first Glam Bag X will be sent in February! Halsey is launching her makeup line, about-face, in the February Ipsy bags!

Ashley Frangipane (a.k.a. Halsey!) has been an artist all her life. You definitely know her for songwriting and singing—Without Me and Bad At Love, anyone?—but what you might not know is that makeup is one of her favorite mediums, which is what led the award-winning singer to create her very own line, about-face.

Lucky for you, about-face is launching exclusively with IPSY, so you get to be one of the first to try the high-performance line (which is vegan, cruelty-free, and formulated without gluten, phthalates, parabens, and synthetic fragrances, btw) in your February Glam Bag Plus and Glam Bag x Patrick Ta.

“I’m super excited to have some of my products featured in the Glam Bag,” says Halsey. “My whole family has IPSY subscriptions. My mom is actually in makeup school right now. She recently came into my room, dumped her IPSY bag out, and started talking to me about all the products. It was a cool bonding moment for us since makeup has been a long love of my life, and now it’s a new found love of hers.”

Your February Bag will include:

Matte Lip Color in Last Goodnight, Cautionary Tale, Take Aim, or So Long Summer

Be one of the first to try this Matte Lip Color in our debut Glam Bag X collection curated by celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta, which drops this February. “Lips were a really big deal when I was starting about-face because as a musician, I’m always moving my mouth,” says Halsey. “The first time I wore a bright colored lip on stage, I pulled my microphone away and noticed that the entire capsule was covered in my lipstick. I was super embarrassed, but it also taught me a lesson about the kind of lipsticks I need to be wearing on stage.”

For starters, a long-lasting formula that doesn’t smear was a necessity in her line. “A lot of lipsticks are longwear, but unfortunately the formulas can be incredibly drying because of that,” she adds. “So I needed it to be hydrating and longwearing, which was kind of a paradox, but I was determined to make it happen.”

In your Glam Bag x Patrick Ta, you’ll receive the shade Last Goodnight, Cautionary Tale, Take Aim, or Halsey’s personal favorite, So Long Summer. “I am a collector of pink-y, mauve-y nude lips, so I wanted to create the perfect one,” she says.

The February Bag may also include:

HUDA BEAUTY Rose Gold Remastered Eyeshadow Palette, MSRP $65

With 18 trendy shades in four different finishes, the ultra-versatile collection of buttery shadows can be used to create pro-quality looks that are soft and romantic or bold and glam.

PAT MCGRATH LABS FetishEyes Lengthening Mascara, MSRP $30

This cult-favorite mascara from world renowned makeup artist Pat McGrath has a flexible, buildable formula that allows you to go from soft and fluttery to bold and thick—making it the ultimate pro-artist secret for customizable lashes with zero clumps or flakes.


Longer, fuller looking lashes…without piling on the mascara? Sign. Us. Up. This serum is packed with nutrients to enhance the length and volume of your natural lashes with continued use.

CHOICE OPTION: IGK FIRST CLASS Charcoal Detox Dry Shampoo, MSRP $27

Dealing with second, third, or even fourth day hair? NBD. This super-powered dry shampoo refreshes your hair in just a few quick spritzes. Feel free to delay your next wash day a liiiiittle longer.


Patrick Ta Beauty Monochrome Velvet Blush $32


Patrick Ta Beauty Major Brow Shaping Wax & Brush $40

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!

  1. For those of you who signed up for glam bag X, what does your account say under glam bag x membership? I have a confirmation email from December saying I’m confirmed for Glam bag X, but in my account it says “ Status: You’re in line for Glam Bag X. Stay tuned— it’s totally worth the wait. We’ll email you once your upgrade is confirmed and we bill you.” Does everyone’s say that or did mine get messed up somehow? Thanks !!!

    • Mine said something like that at one point (after signing up) but at the moment it says “You signed up for Glam Bag X. Stay tuned for more info on how to go extra.” I think the message just changed recently.

      • Now that you say that, I remember mine used to say that as well. I am just hoping it didn’t change bc I decided to sign up for glam bag plus recently and it put me at the back of the line or something.

    • Mine says the same thing. And it is asking me to choose my February glam bag item. So am I not actually getting the X bag? I’m so confused.

      • I got the email saying the order was confirmed for the Feb bag x Patrick Ta and we’ll let you know when it’s time to build your bag and just recently it changed to you’re on the list… 🙄So kinda confused and disappointed

  2. Will we receive our GlamBagX products in a bag like we normally do with GlamBag Plus or will we have to choose the bag in place of one of our products? I’m confused!

    • Ispy has said that there will be no bag per se for GBX, but that a bag will be a choice item, so if you wanted it, you could select the bag as one of your products.

  3. I’m wondering if I have glam bag and glam bag plus, which one with this be replacing? Do I get to choose or will they make that Choice for me? Or will I only get glam bag x?

    • It will replace your Glam Bag Plus. You, unfortunately, don’t get a choice. If you only have a Glam Bag it just replaces it. If you have both, it replaces the Plus and you will receive your regular Glam Bag as normal! Hope that helps 🙂

  4. Does anybody know where I can get those exact scrunchies?

  5. Can you still get a pot for the glam x

    • Ipsy says feb box is sold out but you can reserve your spot for Mays box right now

  6. I’m so excited because the huda palette and pat McGrath mascara are for everyone 😍 those lip colors are pretty too. I can’t wait to see what I receive.

    • Those items are a “may” include item.

      • The palette and mascara are guaranteed for everyone. The lip colors are may be in your bag.

  7. I have never heard of Patrick Ta or any of those celebrities, but I am really looking forward to this bag! It’s not the same brands we always get, and I see no leftovers from old bags. These spoilers are all items I would love to try, especially that lighter lipstick shade. I am hoping the items we aren’t seeing will be as nice.

  8. Is the Huda Palette not a guarantee? From previous spoilers it looked like it was a definite, but that there would be choice items and not yet spoiled items that could be variations. Maybe I misread the spoilers, thought they said ‘will include’ not ‘might include.’

    The palette and the Babelash are why I subbed, so I’ll be a bit disappointed if I get a non-palette variation. Though realistically, I don’t need another palette, since I have about 6-7 unopened ones from sub boxes, am loving the Nomad Berlin Underground palette from Ipsy add ons a bit ago, and it’s too big to put in a travel kit. So I’ll try to keep an open mind. It’s just so pretty ^.^

    • I’m with you on this, the previous spoilers did make it seem like that was included. I’ve been wanting one of the big Huda palettes for a long time so being able to essentially buy one and get 6 other items “for free” it was a no brainer to me (I also really liked the lash serum spoiler).

      If I don’t get either I’m going to be pretty upset.

    • Everyone is getting the Huda palette & PM mascara. The “May receive” is an error from MSA.

      • I hope so! I agree with Amber the Huda eyeshadow palette was my main push to upgrade to X so I will be super disappointed if I dont get it. Fingers crossed everything with choice and all goes smoothly. I’m so excited!

  9. I’m cautiously optimistic about Glam Bag X. I don’t need any more products without doing a full destash, but I do like the overall brand list of options. Hopefully this launch will go better than the Ultimate did. Fingers crossed!

  10. Anyone know how to be removed from the X list? I’ve already sent an email to CS, no reply yet. I don’t see any link to remove/cancel under manage membership. I’m cleaning house on subs, lol.

    • Update, CS responded and removed me from X.

  11. boxycharm’s february boxes were meh. so glad that i canceled and signed up for ipsy’s glam bag x. i am excited for everything so far!

  12. Im excited to try it! I tried the GB ultimate and quickly saw that wasnt for me. Im hoping this balances out my always heavy skin care months. Cant wait!

  13. Oof, the last thing I need is another lipstick that I don’t like lol.

  14. Halsey’s ipsy bonding moment with her mom cracked me up 😂

  15. Such a joke…two plus subs is cheaper and you get more products! They just want us to feel like we are missing something….and I’m here for it!! What is wrong with me??

    • They’re including some products that you would absolutely not get in a plus sub. That Huda palette, for example.

      • See that doesn’t make sense to me. Ipsy just bought out Boxycharm. Boxycharm is nearly the same price as Ipsy Glam Bag Plus and they put Huda palettes in BC. I got two in the past two months. I do have the Luxe so every three months I do pay extra for the higher tier box but I think one of my palettes was from a regular box. I did notice that for Feb add-ons on BC they suddenly have a lot of Ipsy brands. Ipsy now has a lot of brands you normally see on BC too. I get both subs. Hopefully they’ll keep most of their companies they curate from separate because I don’t want to start getting stuff in both boxes from the same handful of companies *coughwanderbeautycough*.

    • quantity over quality

      • I think you mean quality over quantity.

  16. I really hope this is better than the huge disappointment that Ultimate was. I did sign up for February, so I will know soon.

  17. I’m out. This isn’t the ‘X’-tra I was expecting. And, the ‘may include’ language indicates variations. Not surprising for Boxycharm. Lots of money saved.

    • This is Ipsy, not Boxycharm…. But yes, of course there will be variations. X operates the same way Plus does now; Ipsy will choose certain items, and then subscribers will choose the rest of their box from a list of products in each category (that Ipsy has chosen for them). If you were expecting everyone to receive the same box, then you are absolutely in the wrong place.

      However, my understanding is that all subscribers will be getting the Huda palette, Pat McGrath mascara, and a Patrick Ta product, so if those are the items you were hoping for, I wouldn’t cancel just yet.

      • Ipsy bought Boxy, so I’m sure there’s going to be lots of overlapping now😐

      • I mostly subbed for the palette and lash serum (choice item,) and I’d be happy with either the blush or brown kit. 🙂 The brow kit is probably a better option for me, but I’m a blush addict so wouldn’t be too sad for the blush.

        So I’m going to stick with it and see how it goes! I can always cancel the next box if I hate spoilers for it.

  18. Celebrity and influencer makeup lines aren’t typically anything to write home about.

    With that being said, I do like many of Rihanna’s products that I’ve tried. She debuted at Sephora though, which gives her line a lot of clout in my opinion.

    I did also try and like a Lady Gaga lip gloss Ispy sent out last year. So it is rare, yet possible, to find good celebrity makeup line products.

    • Well Patrick Ta is apparently a famous makeup artist (I don’t follow them too closely) and his line also debuted at Sephora. I’ve heard good things, but his aesthetic is not mine.

  19. Keep that Halsey garbage out of my bag.

    • It’s like you’re my brain talking out loud!

      • Same, except I have no worries because I’m cancelling out of X!

  20. So do you not get the plus for that month since it’s 30 extra? I’m confused

    • Sorry nm I just saw the other sentence that says it replaces it. I must’ve been skim reading 🤦‍♀️🤣

  21. I wanted more I’m out…

    • Same, it’s very make up heavy which is fine except the huda palette and the mascara get bad reviews, along with brow product getting mediocre reviews. I decided to stick with the plus bag and boxycharm and will spend the extra money on the pop up shop. I just got a ton of good deals on skin care in the add ons too so I’m set.

  22. Wait…MAY include the Huda palette and PM mascara? I thought that was a guarentee for the first box. Honestly, if not everyone is getting those, I will have to cancel my preorder to X. I’m not paying over $50 for the other products I’ve been seeing for the debut X. None of them are worth the sub to be after how bad Ultimate was.

    • Yup!!! If this is going to be bait and switch I will have to as well:( *sigh* how’s that any better than the ultimate?

    • I think you need to consider that the language you are concerned about may be MSA’s and not Ipsy’s. If you go to the page on Ipsy’s website where they describe the program and provide spoilers for the February bag, the Huda palette and the PM mascara are both clearly listed as in the bag (and not as a choice option, whereas other spoilers, like the Babe Lash serum, are listed as a choice option).

    • I could be wrong, but I think it says “may” because of the choice options below. My understanding is everyone gets the mascara and everyone gets the palette.

    • I also noticed,and went back to the spoiler and it said WILL include Huda palette,now It’s May include…..Wow bait and switch…

    • The “may include” is an MSA error. All X bags will get the huda palette & PMG mascara. Confirmed by Ipsy on Twitter.

      • Oh phew! Thanks! The palette and lash serum were the reason I sprung for it.

      • Thanks for pointing this out, Beth! We’ve corrected the post.
