We have more spoilers for the May 2021 Ipsy Glam Bag X! FYI - This was originally listed as "full spoilers" but Ipsy has released more info on spoilers, including choice products! Check out the latest spoilers here.

Ipsy Glam Bag X is the new quarterly, limited edition upgrade to your monthly IPSY membership.

The May Glam Bag X will be curated by Khloe Kardashian:

The hottest launches, the biggest names, and Glam Bag X exclusives—it’s all yours with May’s limited edition drop.

Choose 3 of your products during Ultra Personalization, 5/2–5/3, and Khloé will custom-pick 5 more products for you to discover.

Your bag will include five of the following products :

111SKIN Rose Gold Radiance Booster ($135 MSRP) *Every May bag will include this

Khloé’s secret weapon for skin that looks lit-from-within 24/7? This glow-enhancing serum. “This looks so fab on my bathroom counter, plus it reminds me to use it nightly,” says Khloé. It contains rose water and niacinamide to brighten skin, hydrating hyaluronic acid to create a plumping effect, and tiny light-reflecting gold particles to instantly illuminate your complexion.

RMS BEAUTY Lip2Cheek in Demure ($36.00 MSRP)

You know the perfectly flushed skin in all of Khloé’s selfies? She gets it with this! The creamy multi-use color combines the best of both worlds—quality performance and a good-for-you formula loaded with shea butter and buriti oil. Use your fingers to tap it on your cheeks, lids, and lips for a soft flush of color. “This looks just as good applied with a beauty sponge,” she adds. “Plus, it totally saves my long nails.”

TOWER 28 ShineOn Milky Lip Jelly ($14.00 MSRP)

Khloé is always ahead of the trends, so it’s no surprise that she’s a fan of this lip jelly from TOWER 28—one of the buzziest beauty brands on the market: “This gloss lives in my purse for easy touch-ups over whatever lip I’m wearing.” The vegan, cruelty-free, and dermatologist-tested formula is made with plant-based ingredients (like apricot oil and raspberry seed oil) to nourish dry lips and give them a glossy finish without feeling sticky.

M·A·C Love Me Lipstick in Bated Breath ($21.00 MSRP)

The perfect warm, pinky-nude lip look Khloé is known for? It starts with the right lipstick—specifically this one. One swipe (seriously, you don’t even need a lip liner) treats your pout to a dose of moisture (thank you, argan oil) and coats lips in weightless, long-lasting pigments and a soft satin finish. “I like to tap it on for a light wash of color,” she says. “You don’t even need a mirror.”

RODIAL Pink Diamond Cleansing Balm ($59.00 MSRP)

Using a cleansing balm at night is an absolute must when you’re wearing heavy makeup during the day. Regular face washes can’t always break down long-wearing formulas. This one easily dissolves foundation, eye makeup, and more with a luxurious melting formula. Plus, it’s infused with vitamin E, sweet almond oil, and rice germ oil to nourish skin while you cleanse. “After my glam team goes hard with a look, this cleanser is a lifesaver at night,” says Khloé.

HERBIVORE Prism AHA + BHA Exfoliating Glow Facial ($58.00 MSRP)

When a glow-boosting facial at your favorite spa isn’t an option, this at-home exfoliating treatment (it’s a regular in Khloé’s routine) is the answer. Apply a thin layer on clean skin, leave it on for 20 minutes, and let the alpha and beta hydroxy acids work their magic to improve your tone and texture. Your complexion will look noticeably smoother, softer, and clearer after each use. “After a long day of shooting in glam, this saves my skin from breakouts,” says Khloé.

CHARLOTTE TILBURY Charlotte’s Magic Cream ($100.00 MSRP)

Charlotte’s never-skip step when it comes to prepping her client’s skin for makeup? A layer of her iconic Magic Cream. It instantly reduces dullness and redness with antioxidants and floods skin with moisture (thank you hyaluronic acid) to plump fine lines and wrinkles. Whatever makeup you apply on top will go on super smooth and look perfect in pics. “This makes me glow even on my no-makeup days,” says Khloé.


Bold, beautiful, camera-ready brows are a Khloé Kardashian signature—and this multitasking pen makes it easy to score the look in just a few strokes. The specially-designed brush has a superfine tip (don’t worry—it doesn’t skip or dry out) that helps create realistic-looking brow hairs so you can add detail, definition, and dimension to your arches. Khloé’s trick: “I pretend like I’m drawing on little hairs, and my brows are perfected in no time.”


KOSAS The Big Clean Volumizing + Lash Care Mascara in Intense Black ($26.00 MSRP)

“If you’re lash obsessed like me, you’ll be obsessed with this clump-free volume,” says Khloé. Not only does it make lashes look amazing—it’s good for them, too! A few coats of the cruelty-free, plant-based formula gives teeny lashes instant thickness, lift, and length thanks to a blend of volumizing waxes, strengthening vitamins and peptides, and moisturizing castor oil.

ONE/SIZE Visionary Eyeshadow Palette ($42.00 MSRP)

Whether you want to create a low-key look for your morning Zoom or a high-key look for date night, this 15-shade palette has got you covered. It’s filled with influencer and makeup artist Patrick Starrr’s favorite shades—from bright cobalt to shimmery rose gold—and Khloé happens to love them, too. “I stick to the top row for day-to-day glam,” says Khloé. “On the weekends? I’m all about that blue.”

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Modern Renaissance Palette ($45.00 MSRP)

This versatile eyeshadow palette is packed with 14 shades that range from neutral to berry in matte and metallic finishes—all with Khloé’s stamp of approval: “These pink shades are so major! I love how feminine they make me feel.” The best part? You don’t need expert-level makeup skills to use these shades like a pro—they’re easy-to-blend, highly-pigmented, and produce zero fallout.

Your May bag will include three more products that you get to choose (Personalization is on 5/2–5/3).

Here are the rest of the May spoilers:

DOSE & CO Unflavored Collagen Peptides

I wanted to update that although I didn’t get the CT and Herbivore I really loved everything. The ONE pallette which I was least excited over, I actually loved. All the shades are so nice when applied. The 111 that no one wanted, I love. It’s really nice.. The face wash which I thought would be a greasy balm makeup remover is actually soooo nice I’d buy it again. It goes on thick, does the job but rinses off really nicely. I haven’t tried the lip gloss yet but ya know lip gloss is lip gloss.
I would not stay subscribed to the X right now just because it’s hard to know if you are going to get what you really want or what they advertise. Some were let down by the collegen powder but I’m excited about that since I’d probably never otherwise buy and try.
If you have the extra 55 to take the gamble it’s worth it. But for me it’s only worth it if I can get exactly what I want but Ipsy has no idea of knowing every item we want or prefer. Even getting things I wouldn’t have picked, they were all nice.

DId anyone get the CT cream? That was the one and only thing I wanted and it wasn’t offered to me. Majorly bummed!

I will give X one more chance and then I am cancelling…

Reply ButtonReply


It’s funny cause on my profile I rate often for skin care products and did not get the CT lotion or the Herbivore. I at least wanted one of them. I love 111 products, so I am happy about that. The pick from products…I chose the collagen stuff over the CBD and I really wanted the CBD also. In all…I got mascara, lip gloss, eyeshadow, face wash and setting spray. I like everything just am not like omg over it. So I am canceling the X bag after this one. For myself, if I had two stellar items… I would stay. And as other people have said, wish you could pick your three out of all pick-items so you don’t have to give up what you really wanted. I’ve had better luck with my 12 dollar bags.

Did anyone else cancel their February Glambag X last minute and got their original monthly ipsy bag? Because since I cancelled my Glambag X I also didn’t get my February Ipsy Glambag that I already have paid for since I pay annually (and going on 4 years now). Ipsy’s logic didn’t make sense to me so I’m wondering if anyone else can explain to me why I didn’t get my monthly Glambag for February.

Reply ButtonReply


Unlike with a monthly subscription that just tacks on the upgrade fee to the normal fee, if you’re annual then your glam bag subscription is separate from your X subscription. They basically suspend your glam bag sub for those months and tack them on at the end. Since you cancelled at the last minute, it must have been too late to reverse the suspension of your glam bag for that month. You will still get all of the glam bags you paid for but you will get one a month beyond what you initially signed up for. It makes sense since you get a discounted rate for being annual and they didn’t want to cut into how many discounted bags you get by making four of them x bags. There are no discounts for x so people could feel like they are being cheated by having those months taken away for x. I could be wrong but I think that’s what is happening.

Reply ButtonReply


Ugh Noooo Ipsy don’t ruin X already. Too many variations, variations that aren’t comparable, just no, this is going south fast.
I really wanted the Charlotte Tilbury cream and figured since it was one of the first spoilers it would be in most boxes but now there’s like 14 different items so who knows what will end up in your box. Plus people are saying there are even more items than these that might be in the boxes.

I’ve had the ABH palette for 2-3 years and only used it once or twice. I don’t get all the hype. I do not wanna a teeth whitening pen as my teeth are too sensitive for any product like that. The 111 stuff is ALWAYS in sub boxes and the price is crazy inflated. There seems to be a lot of “filler” type items. I might just end up canceling which is sad cause it started out so good.

Reply ButtonReply


I’m SO annoyed! Magic Cream wasn’t one of my Ipsy picks nor was it one of my choices! At least Ipsy picked the Patrick Star palette, as I feel similarly about ABH modern Renaissance, I’ve touched it a handful of times since purchasing.
Maybe it was a unique color story when first released, back then the market wasn’t overly saturated with palettes and the ABH formula/shades stood out amongst its midrange competitors. However today, that’s SO not the case …formulas have improved astronomically, and choices/options are limitless.
This whole Khloe curation confuses me, no way did she actually select most of these products …other than her sisters gimmicky teeth whitener junk. In everything I’ve seen, she uses her sisters brands & products…I’m really doubtful shes even heard of 1/2 this stuff….

Reply ButtonReply


I agree. I’m very disappointed. There are even more spoilers posted today beyond the ones not mentioned in this article. Two of them are ole henrickson banana primer and eye cream. Oh, and a travel mirror. The only guaranteed item is the 111 skin item that most of us don’t want. This is way too much of a crap shoot. I really liked the idea of everyone getting basically the same 5 big items with slight variations on shades, etc. I also have a strong feeling they will be picking which palette we get, if any. There could potentially be huge differences in values as well. Idk what to do.

Reply ButtonReply


There is more than this. Ipsy themselves confirmed the morphe setting spray, plus there are way more spoilers elsewhere. I don’t know how MSA can say these are the full spoilers, when they are not. People are potentially canceling because of this; Once they find out about the other items they might enjoy, they will be angry and disappointed with MSA. I just wonder why they are saying full spoilers here.

Ipsy themselves said they were the full spoilers in the app so I am sure that is what MSA is going off of.

Reply ButtonReply


Well, that explains why MSA might be confused. I wonder why Ipsy had these items as full spoilers. Either way, I feel like people are potentially cancelling due to this and may become upset if they find out about the other items. Thank you for letting me know this isn’t a MSA issue, but an Ipsy issue.

Bryanna Alexander

They’ve added videos of influencers receiving theirs with new spoilers. There is something by Riki, I’m assuming a mirror of some sort. Also, Christophe Robin scalp scrub, Morphe setting spray, something by Color Wow (silver and black, possibly the texturing spray?) Lollia Breathe Perfume, a candle, and Aceology Overnight Lip Mask.

I missed out on the Patrick Ta box and I regret it so I hope this box does turn out to be good. I’m really interested to see if they pick it back up for the 3rd box or if it keeps going downhill.

Reply ButtonReply


Feb X would have been amazing – if it had showed up. I had to wait 15 business days (until March 8th) to write them. They said they would mail out a new box and gave me a ~$15 refund for the sonic t-bar tool and lash serum that they said had sold out. They also warned some items might be subbed for “comparable” items. It was still about 4 days before the new box mailed, and I got it today. It had six items (since they’d refunded 2) plus the add on lipstick I’d ordered, but only two were actual X items. They subbed everything out for other brands in the same category other than the brow wax kit and the Creme shop peach argan oil I had picked. So a Milk mascara instead of Pat McGrath, a Huda liquid lip creme (very dark burgundy) instead of About Face “Last Goodnight,” and a Kate Somerville serum instead of the Dr. Minus one. Those were ‘roughly’ comparable, so not too bad, but they also subbed out the Huda Rose Gold Remastered palette for a Belle en Argent “Plum Premonition” palette. I’m not sure how a palette worth less than half with only 8 colors is a “comparable” substitution. It was also a Plus item from March.

I wrote CS but they insist the palette is completely out of stock, and didn’t offer points or a refund or anything for the bad switch. 🙁 Friendly, though, just not especially helpful.

If I consider that with the refund I got everything for about $40, it’s OK, but I didn’t get the main products I got the box for (lash serum and Huda palette) so it’s disappointing and feels like a bait and switch, since I only ended up with 2 of the items from my order.

Looks like one and done with X

Okay, it’s official, I’m cancelling.

Reply ButtonReply


No FOMO for me. Nice enough, just nothing I’m that interested in. I *will* purchase an item or two in add-ons if they show up, though.

Reply ButtonReply


Ugh…I can’t decide whether to keep or cancel. Part of me wants to stay for the shot at the Charlotte Tilbury cream and I probably wouldnt hate the Herbivore facial either. I wouldnt mind the RMS product because I’ve recently fallen in love with cream blush. ABH palette wouldnt be bad but I dont like that Patrick Starr palette very much and I heard it didnt perform very well. I already have that Kosas mascara along with 20 other mascaras. I said I would give it a few boxes but idk anymore.

Reply ButtonReply


Cancelled. Really only interested in the Kopari, Herbivore, and the ABH brow pen. But no interest at all in the 111skin, the Kardashian products, or any of the rest actually lol. Hoping August is more like the Patrick Ta box.

Reply ButtonReply


Pretty ironic that the one thing that most people don’t want (111) is the one thing that everyone is forced to get.

Reply ButtonReply


Where did you see that the 111 was going to be in every box?

Reply ButtonReply


Nevermind I see the * now


Right?!? I have NEVER been so tired of seeing a brand as I am with 111. I was soooo burnout on getting spongelle for a while but I still don’t think it was as bad as 111. Haha

Hoping we get to choose between the two palettes since I already have the Modern Renaissance (as it seems a lot of other people do)…and I hope this is the only Kardashian we get stuck with this year. I can ignore that she “curated” it as I expect the box to be well worth the cost.

Reply ButtonReply


Yeah I don’t want the Modern Ren palette at all. I’ve had mine for 2-3 years and used it maybe twice. I don’t see why people rave about it

Reply ButtonReply


I was upset I was canceled for the initial launch, but no fomo on the 2nd curation 🤷‍♀️

I wouldn’t mind a couple of these in up in my plus bag
,glad I didn’t sign up. I wish there were more April plus spoilers that’s what I would like to see.

I think I’m still on the wait list, but I don’t want any of this stuff. Can I cancel the wait list so I dont end up charged for this box? 🙁

Reply ButtonReply


I was on the waitlist as well and had to contact support who cancelled it for me. Interestingly, I got an email reply saying that if I want to rejoin, I won’t be on a waitlist. Whether that is true for people who were still on waitlist when cancelling, I don’t know, but if I want a future bag, I will certainly like being able to grab it right away.

Reply ButtonReply


I think you can but need to email them to do so.

Reply ButtonReply


I just wanted to update for anyone else wondering the same thing. I send them an email via their ipsycare form on the app and I got a response back a little bit ago that they canceled my GBX spot, no problems.


The only 2 items jumping out at me are the Charlotte Tilbury magic cream and the ABH pallette (which I already have). Not a fan of anything 111 Skin – I hope I don’t get this. That leaves 3 rather unimpressive lip products, another eye brow pen, mascara and a less than stellar eyeshadow palette. The 2 other skin care products might be great for all I know but I was hoping for makeup not skincare.

Have you tried Tower 28 lip products? I’d like to know how the one featured here is if you have. I never had and I got a little tube of clear gloss in one of the recent Sephora kits and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I love it. My dry lips are fussy and it’s probably one of the best I’ve found.

I’ve never tried Charlotte before either. I’d love to get ahold of the magic cream too.

Reply ButtonReply


Unfortunately, everyone is receiving the 111 Skin item. I’m also not a fan of the brand, but I think there are some great items in here, especially with the skincare.

Do you know what other items are guaranteed?

If I get a lip gloss where someone else gets the Charlotte Tilbury, Ima be salty…..
