The tracking on my bag has been showing “En Route To DHL Ecommerce Distribution Center” for over a week now. I am wondering if it is lost or just slow. Has anyone else had this issue?

ARR

Same here. I usually get my bag around the 2nd week of the month, but this month has been different. My tracking hasn’t updated since Feb 4 – no idea where my bag is or if it is lost somewhere. Wanted to reach out to Ipsy but the app says to wait 15 business days before i contact them. I don’t mind the delay w covid and the weather, just wish i would get an update on where my bag is.

Judi

I am so irritated. I just got my bag and the ABH foundation is missing. Emailed can and the only offered $5 refund. This is the only reason I got the bag this month. I sent another email stating this is not an acceptable solution and I am waiting for either a full refund with shipping it back or some better option. Ughhh.

Lisa

I really dislike press on nails as an option and I hope I never get a set in my GBP. Something they could include in the beauty quiz is whether or not you do your own nails or maybe how long or short you keep them. Assuming the algorithm works well at all it may keep people like me from having a spot in their bag wasted on the type of product I haven’t used since the 80s. I keep my nails very short and I pain them every weekend so I have zero need for something like this.

Vic

It seems like alot of people are let down by not being offered the Maelle blush palette. Is there something about this company that I’m not aware of?
I’ve never heard of them and couldn’t even find the palette to purchase online.

Vic

Not my favorite bag but I’ll find some use out of some of the products:

* BEAUTYSTAT Universal C Skin Refiner (ipsy choice)
* THE CREME SHOP Ethereal Glow Ampoule Serum (ipsy choice)
* TYNT BEAUTY Dew Balm (i wanted nothing in this category)
* DR BRANDT SKINCARE Recovery Sleeping Mask (very excited for this)
* WE ARE FLUID Brow Gel (I wanted nothing in this category and I don’t use brow gel but I at least have an alternate use for it…I use brow gel to tame my flyaways when I’m wearing a ponytail)

Monica

Most disappointing bag ever. Almost all skincare and from brands I have NEVER heard of. I love serums but I must have 10 that are not even opened yet and you can only layer so many serums.

Their choice: Beautystat Universal C Refiner, Callyssee Whipped Moisturizer. Never heard of either of those.

My picks: Makeup Forever foundation (I have a feeling it will be too light but my other choices sucked) Tynt Beauty Dew Balm and Farah Brush set

My options included fake nails, a weird lavender liquid eyeshadow and a 10 day supply of serum ampoules. How is that even a full size product?

Blue

Callyssee isn’t that bad of a brand. I got their cleanser scrub this month and even though it has coffee in the name it’s not coffee scented and it has a nice texture and light scent. I wouldn’t mind trying their moisturizer as long as it’s not pore clogging or oily.

KateQ

GB+ never caught my interest up until this month; I got really tempted by the spoilers and here’s my first bag:
• F.A.R.A.H. Rendezvous Brush Trio (I was hoping to see that IT cosmetics hugging brush in there or in the choice options but nope);
• Maёlle Beauty Sunkissed Blush Palette (I’m a blush addict, always receive lots of them in my GB and rate them highly, so not surprised and v excited to try this).

My picks:
• Mischo Beauty Nail Duo (love the lasting power of this nail polish brand);
• Anastasia Beverly Hills foundation in 120W (I love luminous natural-looking foundations but I should have googled the shade before picking it, the 120w has warm undertones and probably wont fit my complexion. But I’ll play with it anyways);
• About-face Matte fluid eye paint in Dionysus (I see many ppl are on the fence about it, however I’m totally sold on the adventurous shade, texture and packaging!).

Add-ons:
• Payot Hydra 24+ creme glacée (sounds like a decent rich moisturizer with nice ingredients, so I added it on both bags);
• Raw Sugar Living Mini hand sanitizer in Watermelon (I like the brand and those little bamboo lids).

Verdict: I’m going to cancel GB+ and stick to my regular bag because it’s enough for me. But that was a nice experiment and I got almost everything I was hoping for.

Beth

I so wanted that pretty sun kissed palette but got another one instead. I had a really hard time picking from the choices which is heartbreaking. I went back and forth with the brush options and that was the only items i was ok about. I am more excited about my add-on which is why I asked if I could cancel my order. Maybe I’m just in beauty overload and I’m not excited at all. I use to be shocked at my glam bag plus months ago. 🙁

Also Beth

If I reactivate Plus on Choice day (as in, today, haha) is there any chance I’d still get to personalize? This looks shockingly great.

Ashleigh

I did this in January (except earlier in the day on choice) and did NOT get to choose. They picked a great box though 🙂

Alice

You should be able to choose.

Lori

My bag this month is BOMB! Last month was pretty bad, so I’m happy:

Ipsy’s picks:

—MAELLE BEAUTY Sunkissed Blush Paletter (YESSSS! This was the one item I REALLY, REALLY wanted! It’s so gorgeous)

—FARAH Rendevous Brush Trio (this is fine, I like brushes)

My picks:
—IT COSMETICS Skin Hugging Heavenly Foundation Brush(Yes! Also an item I was hoping for. Their flat foundation brush is my favorite, so I’m super happy to add this to the rotation)

—BIMAIO Matte Ampoules (I didn’t want press on nails or the Anastasia foundation–not impressed by anything from this brand–so this was the best option. Intrigued to try them)

—TOUCH IN SOL Velvet Lipstick in Seoul Rose (YAY! I missed this the last couple rounds, so happy to finally get it! This is one of those times when repeats are a good thing!)

I’m so glad I didn’t get one of those about face liquid eyeshadows–they look hideous.

Yolanda

Do they let u pick any 3things or is like fab fit fun? Lol. I would pick the makeup forever foundation, abh foundation and the It Cosmetics brush. I LOVE their brushes!!!!!!!

Glenda

Those 3 items is exactly what I picked!!! And I really really wanted the nabla mascara

Yolanda

Nice Glenda, u have good taste!!!! 😉😝😁.

Marion

It’s actually worse than FFF, lol. With FFF, theoretically, all the choices for all the categories are available until they sell out.

Ipsy only guarantees you the choice of 4 items per category, but they control which items you can pick from. So some of those really good spoiler items they put out, you never have a chance of getting.

Beth

Yes so true. I thought I got punked. Booooooo

Kathie

Not everyone gets the same picks. You get 3 to 5 in each category of each of your 3 picks. Does that make sense?

Lisa

I didn’t know that not everyone gets the same pick choices! That changes things for me a bit I think. What’s annoying to me is that the choices I was offered are things that I have selected as “rarely” on my profile so it was a bunch of stuff I would never pick plus one thing I already had.

Chalsey

Ipsy Picks:
Goldfaden moisturizer 🙂
Beautystat serum 😍

My Picks:
We are Fluide brow gel 😍
Benton foam cleanser 🙂
Ahava hand cream 😍

This was a solid bag for me! I love getting skincare in Ipsy. My husband and I love trying new products together and I haven’t used any of these yet! I also bought an additional 7 add-ons 😅

Add-ons:

Design.me hair oil (basically a postpartum hair pick me up for me)

Sophia + Mabelle lip oil (lip product addict)

YC powder in #117 (gimme all the powder)

Illuminati Consmetics quad in Secret Society (love the cool tones!)

Banila Co. cleansing balm (loved the one I got in pop up. The best at getting all my eye makeup off in seconds)

Benefit cosmetics mascara (yay mini mascara!!)

FAB oil-control moisturizer (really hope this works as I have combo skin with an awful t-zone)

Alice

Plus continues to be outstanding! Love my bag. I wasn’t exactly thrilled that Ipsy threw in a bag variation after spoiling just the red flap close bag.

Alice

Bag variation for regular glambag.

disneyjoy1970

I am thrilled with this month’s selection. I’m super happy with all of the items I’m getting.

Ipsy’s choice for me: Goldfaden MD moisturizer & Maelle Beauty blush palette (yay!!).

My three choices: Dr. Brandt sleeping mask, ABH foundation in 120W and Touch in Sol lipstick in Seoul Rose.

Ashleigh

Great bag!

Kathie

I am happy – with the pick:
Ipsy picks- BEAUTYSTAT Universal C Skin Refiner- I feel like I should be adding Vit C to my routine so this is a nice pick. CALLYSSEE Whipped Moisturizing Cream-I wouldn’t have picked but not bad.

My picks-FIRST AID BEAUTY Pure Skin Gentle Foaming Face Cleanser with Amino Acids-I was hoping for a cleanser pick & like First Aid Beauty.
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Luminous Foundation in 140N- Wanted to try this so great pick for me.
TOUCH IN SOL Pretty Filter Soul Velvet Lipstick in Seoul Rose-the only thing I really wanted when I saw the spoilers- so this makes me happy.

Add ons -ALTERNA HAIRCARE Sea Salt Spray & Invisible Roller Spray Bundle-I love Alterna and the Roller Spray is something I use and have wanted to try the Sea Spray-super great price.
KATE SOMERVILLE Goat Milk Cleanser-I am almost out of Cleansers and have been wanting to try another one of her products.

I also love this month’s Bag, I love the drawstring bags.

Kathie

Mireia

Hello,

This is my first month to choose and buy add ons
But the app crashed as soon as I was going through the add ons page

Does anyone know if we are able to access it again or are we not able to?

Thanks!

Pajama

Yes! Go back into the app and click the choice banner! It should lead you back though. If it keeps crashing, make sure your app is updated.

Mireia

Thank you 🙂

Sadly various items were sold out oh well.

This was my first month…it was alright not too bad. I don’t know anymore. Wish we could pick three items from all the items they have rather than being told which ones we can pick from

Ipsy chose these two items for me:

BEAUTYSTAT Universal C Skin Refiner (has anyone tried it?)
CALLYSSEE Whipped Moisturizing Cream for Normal to Dry Skin

Then I chose these three items:

AHAVA Mineral Hand Cream in Cactus Pink Pepper (love AHAVA lotions they are the best)
ABOUT-FACE MATTE FLUID EYE PAINT in CLONED (really love Halsey’s music so excited to try this from her brand)
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Luminous Foundation in 360N (I truly hope this color works, I couldn’t find swatches of this specific color)

Kay

Last month, I hated my box, but this month it’s my favorite yet!

I was able to choose two different foundations in two different categories, which I’m excited about because I’m looking for a favorite liquid foundation.
I also choose a couple of makeup brushes in my third category which is timely because I’m replacing all my brushes right now.
Ipsy chose two skincare items for me that I was hoping for (a vitamin C serum and a moisturizer). Couldn’t be happier!

Eeyoreissues215

I went with X. Got $410 worth of things I will actually use and are all names I usually buy. I’m cancelling my little glam bag, though. It’s been terrible since I resubbed to it. I get nothing I’ll use in that. I dont like plus, at all. I want to keep just the x if that was possible but I’m not sure I can do that.

Nicole

You can’t and you may not have noticed but half the choices for X were also in Plus. You basically got a palette and mascara upgrade. They are pretty darn similar, just more items in X.

Deb

There was also the Patrick Ta Blush and Brow wax and at least 2 items in each choice category that were not offered in plus. In my opinion it was worth it and offered a much better variety than I’ve ever seen in plus.

Alice

My observation as well. I got several items in my Plus that were also offered in X. So glad I opted out of X.

Cheryl

I am so disappointed in my Plus–it’s horrible this month and virtually a clone of all the same product types as my [also horrible] classic glam bag: facial moisturizer, brushes, serum, black mascara, more brown eyeshadow.

My choice categories has next to no makeup and no color but brown. I keep telling Ipsy to stop it, but they don’t listen. Tried the survey in the confirmation email a month or so ago, but that didn’t seem to have any impact either.

I got: Farah brush set, Goldfaden MD face moisturizer (their products are o.k., but I don’t see better performance than many other brands), Vitabrid C12 face serum (never heard of this, but I’ll try it; don’t really need more serums right now), black mascara and I actually had to resort to that darn Halsey cream eyeshadow because the other choices in that group were even worse.

Not impressed with next month’s spoilers or with the bag designs so I’m gonna sit next month out.

Peg

Yes – next month looks really bad

Marion

I’m actually happy this month, lol. I had resolved not to get the Anastasia foundation when the shade spoilers came out & I checked swatches & saw that none would work for me, but then that category’s choices were abysmal (for me). Maybe I can trade it? I haven’t swapped in forever, though.

Ipsy chose for me:
– Goldfaden Vital Boost moisturizer 🥰
– Crème Shop glow oil 🙂

Category 1:
– MUFE foundation (too warm for me)
– Mischo polish duo (my choice! 😘)
– it Cosmetics brush
– Dr Brandt sleeping mask (repeat)
– Ahava hand cream
– Hynt liner

Category 2:
– ABH foundation (too warm for me, still chose it!)
– Tynt Dew balm
– Bimaio ampoules
– Benton cleanser

Category 3:
– About Face eye paint in Dionysus (Choice! 😘)
– FARAH brush

Marion

Oops accidentally hit post!
Category 3:
– About Face eye paint in Dionysus (choice)
– FARAH brush duo
– Marmalade nails press-ons
– Violet Voss lip gloss

JRose

I am happy with my bag this month, choices was a little disappointing on the third pick.
Ipsy picked FARAH Brush Trio only thing I didn’t need having 35 brushes already,
Gold Faden MD moisturizer, very happy they put this in
My picks, Ahava hand cream, with washing my hands constantly I need this
Benton cleansing foam
About face eye paint in the bubble gum pink it was either this or lipstick that I never wear or mascara I have tons of ,or a liquid eyeliner I never wear and some eyeshadow palettes I didn’t care for the colors.
I would of like the pretty blush palette but it wasn’t even offered to me or in add ons. I believe I can pull off the pink eye paint. Maybe it’s not Vegan or cruelty free and ipsy knows I won’t touch anything that is not!
I got some great add ons also 😊

Serena

I’m a total skincare addict especially in the face of the pandemic.

My bag Ipsy chose :
Ahava night replenisher
Vasanti Miracle Mask

I chose:
Touch in Sol Lipstick
Dr Brandt Sleep mask
Bimaio Ampoules

I really love night creams in the winter and the vasanti is likely similar to the origins and glam glow clay masks I like to use on breakouts. I’ll admit though that the brushes were tempting picks, but I know I have enough good ones already. I wasn’t into any foundation right now since I’m half covered by a mask anyway. Overall though I’m quite happy.

Deanne

I’m really glad that I skipped because I’m on product overload and need to use what I own, but even better I was able to add the makeup forever foundation in add-ons and I just finished my samples that I’ve had over the years from ipsy. it’s definitely one of my favorite foundations and I was just thinking how there’s no way I wanted to pay full price.

Page

I’m pretty happy this month even though they chose 2 products I was initially bummed about.
They chose:

AHAVA Night Replenisher (Great brand and I haven’t tried this particular product in the line.)
BDB Best Brow Tool Kit. (I knew they would get around to giving this to me eventually so now it’s out of the way.)

I chose

Anastasia BH foundation in 320N (Happy to try and it looks like a good color for me to make work.)
F.A.R.A.H brush duo. (Best option in the category and I love good foundation brushes.)
MAKE UP FOREVER HD Foundation. (I’ve never tried this brand but it was the best choice in the group.)

ADD ONS:
F.A.R.A,H flat foundation brush
Raw Sugar Watermelon hand sanitizer
Naked Cosmetics Vanilla Creme lip scrub
Banila Co cleansing balm (Excited to try the brand after seeing such great reviews for years now.)
Design Me Hair serum

For those who wonder about this sort of thing my bag total supposedly came to $284.

Nikkim

For all of you not liking customization? Once you get your confirmation email, scroll to the bottom, and click on that survey and fill it out. Mine had high value this month but nothing but skincare.

Lisa

I have never gotten a monthly confirmation at all. The only confirmations I get are when I order extras. Hrm….

Monica

Thanks for the information. I never noticed this at the end of the confirmation email. I left a pretty scathing review. Hopefully it helps because it can’t get any worse.

Kristin

I didn’t get an email but my selections are confirmed.

Lori

I just did this—thanks for the tip! I would’ve never paid attention to that survey link, but I will do it EVERY month now. How can IPSY get better if we don’t tell them what we like and don’t like?
