Ipsy Glam Bag, Plus, + X May 2021 Glam Bag Reveals

We have the glam bag design reveals for the May 2020 Ipsy Glam Bag, Glam Bag Plus, and Glam Bag X!

What comes after April’s showers? May’s flowers. We’re leaning into Mother Nature’s best beauty inspo with a fresh roster of bloom-studded Glam Bag designs. To be more specific, each bag features a custom illustration of pink peonies—which just so happen to be the fave flower of May’s Glam Bag X curator, Khloé Kardashian! Let this month’s design be a reminder to stop and smell the flowers (literally and figuratively!) every now and then.

For a deeper look into our May bags, we tapped designer Joanne Wong to show the inspo behind what made these Glam Bags so bright, beautiful, and totally unique…just like you!

Here is the bag design for each subscription:

Glam Bag

Right in line with the fresh spring floral vibes the IPSY team was channeling for the month, the May Glam Bag features a detailed line illustration of peonies with a monochromatic pink color scale. “The color combination of the rose gold metal zipper puller, pink peonies, and the rosy lining inside is so beautiful,” explains Wong. “Plus, the material is so soft and smooth.”

Crafted with a durable faux leather, this bag can handle it all—spills wipe away easily, it can resist dents and dings from being tumbled around in your tote, and will keep its charm for the long haul.

Glam Bag Plus

The May Glam Bag Plus features a soft, lightweight microfiber material and nylon drawstrings, printed with this month’s signature peony illustration. The just-right shade of pink is the perfect pop of color to accompany a neutral palette of creamy whites, tans and camels, or gray.

And not only is the May Glam Bag Plus super chic, it’s incredibly versatile. “The pouch is totally reusable. I can carry it around as a wristlet, pop it inside of a larger bag, or reuse it as a gift bag by tying a cute bow with the drawstrings,” says Wong. Have an excess of unused beauty products laying around? Stash them in your Glam Bag Plus and stuff with tissue as an easy gift for your beauty-loving friends and fam. (P.S. Don’t forget! Mother’s Day is on May 9th.)

Glam Bag X

Get ready for a luxe experience. The second edition of Glam Bag X, curated by Khloé Kardashian, features a soft faux leather exterior (aka easily cleaned), rose gold zipper pulls, and an ultra soft interior with a surprise peony pop.

When designing May’s Glam Bag x Khloé, Wong wanted to create a multi-use bag that didn’t skimp on details. “It’s very travel friendly—easily carried around with the top handle and foldable to maximize packing space. Also, the double zipper pullers allow you to access the bag easily on one or both sides without completely opening the whole bag,” Wong tells us.

I loved the Feb one but when I saw who the curator was for this one I had a reminder set to cancel. Then when the spoilers started coming out I cancelled. Not a Kardashian fan, have tried the CT cream, no desire to have the full size, a pallet I already own(ABH) and a pallet I have no desire to own (PS) and from reading a lot of the reviews the favorite product was a gloss in a shade I already own (Tower 28 Coconut). I am waiting to see what spoilers come out for Aug and hoping May was just a bust because I really loved my Feb one.


This spoiler was deceptive for Glam Bag X. It looks like you get it as your Ipsy glam bag, but you actually have to use up one of your choices.


I am hesitate to buy the glam bag X. I see the Feb one was fabulous but the everyone gets for May is not really appealing to me.

If I want make a choice for the glam box X, do I need to sign on on April to be qualify for May?


Best Ipsy ever…I love my glam x May!! Wow is all I can say!!!


The site says they are full for May.


I love the design. Peonies bloomed every May in my mom’s garden & they smelled so strong that I used to hate them & now I wish they grew where I live but it’s too hot. So thanks Ipsy for sending me the peonies


The May Ipsy X will be my first, will I still get the regular glam bag? Not subscribed to plus.


I am subscribed to all three levels. For the first Glam Bag X, they kept my regular bag coming and skipped my Glam Plus when billing for the X Bag. I really wanted the Plus bag in February. I have subscribed with another email or two to always get the regular bag and Plus bag even during the X Bag month. You have the ability to skip and pause so easily with Ipsy. I just keep good tabs on what is coming and when 🙂

As someone else said…the X bag is not a free bag on top of you X bag products. You can choose it as one of your three items that you can select. You can’t usually buy a regular or pulse bag during add ons. Good luck!!


No, you’ll have to pick up a second regular sub if you want the regular bag. The train case bag will be one of your choice options for X, though – you can choose to get it or a product instead of the bag.


Nope. Your regular bag will be upgraded to X.


Shoot, first bag I’ve liked in a while. No doubt we’ll be seeing it pop up in bundles then.


I would rather have the glam bags than the plus bags. I don’t find much use for the draw string bags. End up donating them.


How big are they? Would they work as produce bags or shoe bags? I suppose you could use them for gift bags, too, or donate them to a foster kid or woman’s shelter.


Too small for adult shoes. I would say too small for produce as well. I use for donations and gifts.


I think they are a bit small for regular shoes, but I use them for my sandals or flip-flops (size 6.5), especially when traveling. They won’t hold many veggies, either. For a few at a time they might work.

I like all the bags for the month of March, my only thing is I hope that with the Ipsy X they are not counting the bag as one of our 8 items.


They do, but you don’t have to get the bag. It will be in a choice category with other items.

Of course last time they had to put it in a category with the one choice items I’d signed up to get. And then I didn’t get the lash serum anyway, since my box never came and they were supposedly “sold out” before mailing my replacement box – despite that it’s going to be an add on this month.


SO much better than the past two months. I prefer classier designs like this. Hmmm…so now X has a bag this quarter…like an ‘Ultimate’ bag. However, I bet it will be much smaller than the leopard train case (which is the best bag Ipsy ever offered).


Totally random but I hate the top pic of Gigi Gorgeous. Reminds me of the junk products I got during that month.


I guess I’m in the minority as I was relieved to see that the pattern is NOT on the X bag. I AM really excited to get another bag more the size of a train case although it is hard to tell how big it really is. I LOVE the size of the leopard train case, but I’m not into animal print at all.


Now I want Glam Bag X just to get the bag.


I was thinking the same thing.


Yep! That’s how they get you! Lol

tammy g.

can’t wait for all three…


I wish we could get all 3! I may have to use another account too cause X replaces plus now.


I was thinking that too. If they offered X separately I would already be subscribed to all 3. Don’t think I want 4 Ipsy subscriptions.


Very pretty and feminine!

Tiffany Nicole

This design is adorable, its my favorite design so far this year. I do wish the X bag had the design too though since May will be my first month getting X


It’s a pretty pattern. I wish it was on the x bag as well.


I wish they put the same pattern on the glam bag X exterior.



Alana Abel

Wow, knocked it out of the park for May – these are beautiful.
While I don’t want Glam Bag X, that case seems like something similar to what Sephora sells and that style/size is great! Good job, Ipsy.


I am trying to be positive here, but I’m curious. How many people sign up because of the makeup bag? Is this truly a spoiler?


My comment was censored. I said that the bag was sometimes the factor in deciding whether to skip or not, at least if you already have a sizable stash. I said that the bag was a sure thing, unlike the spoilers, so the people who say that they skipped because they didn’t like the spoilers clearly don’t understand that those are only a few of many options and not items that are guaranteed to be in their bags.


I usually skip months where I hate the bag, and part of the reason I subbed to Ipsy was for the bags. I love May’s design for the regular bag.


The classic bags are almost always wasted on me. They’re just too small to be functional. I stick them in a box in my closet and include them as packaging in swaps for people who do use them, or a gifts to young girls. If I could forgo the classic bag and save a buck or two, I would! I did pick or skip an occasional ultimate based on the bag if I was teetering based on items. The BIG bags are such a treat!


My boyfriend gets my bags to use in the garage. He’s not picky lol.


Mine does too lol. He loves the draw string ones. Even the bright Pink one that says IPSY on it he used for his face trimmer parts.


I get or skip based on if I like the bag. I’m usually not disappointed in the products I get so I can be picky about the bags instead.


I’ve signed up if I really liked the bag.


A lot, actually. The products could be the most amazing things to ever receive, and if the bag isn’t absolutely perfectly wonderful, people get mad and cancel. It’s kinda ridiculous. I don’t really use the bags, so I don’t particularly care what it looks like, but I do think it’s fun to see what they are gonna look like.


I like seeing the bag designs but it isnt make or break for me either-I usually end up giving them away


I was just thinking that. The bag doesn’t really matter that much.


For the $12 subscription level I usually subscribe on months I really like the bag. There are almost always pretty good products and at the $12 level I just don’t need every month so I pick based on when I like the bag as long as the item spoilers aren’t pure trash

The higher tiers I generally don’t care so much, I rarely if ever subscribe to those anyhow, but I am less likely to subscribe on months I hate the bag

So imo it is kind of a spoiler, but I’m generally still going to need to see some products before deciding

May is off the table for me personally because of the trash gbx “curator” and honestly it leaves a sour taste in my mouth towards ipsy in general but I’ll see how I feel in a few months
