I quit because I actively do not want any Halsey product. The brand is new and I’m tired of being a guinea pig. I did see one person over 35 review an eyeshadow stick and she was so not impressed. Yeah, I’d love to try the Tatcha primer but I’m not gambling on it when I heard they’re will be 2 Halsey products. It’s been many years since I quit.

Cat Galea

Would be wonderful if reg bag would get sample of the Moonlight Crystal palette those shades are beautiful

Makeup86

I don’t know or care who Halsey is.

Tiffany Starr

Halsey did a poem/speech called “inconvenient woman” for Glamour. Look it up on YouTube, Definitely worth checking out. Halsey is a singer and also has her own Cosmetics company called about face. I know you said you don’t care LOL

Angel

There are some great $5 products in the world….but I sure as heck do not want to pay $55 for them lol I’d rather just spend my 5 dollars on the item itself.

Cat Galea

Same I don’t mind receiving samples and I am ok getting just $12 bag but it would be nice if the offered the same items as $25 or $50 bag but sample sizes

Andih

Agreed…I do ipsy to try the incredible brands that I wouldn’t spend 5-20. On. If I find a crazy priced item that 50. Or more and realize I can’t live without I will buy it in their shops for lower price points. Which I have before. Princess mascara is only 5.00 at Ulta. I will buy that but I’ve tried some incredible mascara that have 20-30 dollars. Would I pay 139. For 111 skin serum .I’m no way. Do I think their great yeah but I’d rather get em in my glam x or plus .

Gray K

Is the Aether Beauty palette so new that it hasn’t been released? I can’t find swatches or evidence that it even exists.. anywhere.

Krystin Kiley

This palette is a Halsey exclusive

Tiffany Starr

No it’s not a Halsey (about face) makeup item. He actually doesn’t have any eyeshadow palette. The eyeshadow palette is by Ather Beauty.

Kenley

I had never heard of this brand before. After doing some research on the company, I was impressed with their commitment to clean beauty. I decided to order the two eyeshadow quads off Sephora (they are on sale for $14 right now) and these are amazing quality with beautiful colors. I have been getting more into clean beauty and I’m excited i discovered this brand. I also ordered their highlighter and it is so stunning. I think I can be seen from space!!! This is definitely a new favorite brand of mine and I’m hoping I get that palette.

Makeup86

Clean beauty is a meaningless buzzword. Save your money for something with meaning.

Marion

Yes! 🙂

A few people have caught screencaps from various social media & shared them on r/Ipsy. It’s hard to tell exactly what the shades look like due to varied lighting + the possibility of filters. The best look at it I’ve seen is a video posted to the Ipsy Instagram account titled “Halsey’s Dreamy Eye How-To.”

Andih

I am truly excited about glow recipe , I’ve wanted to try their products forever. So I get that the box will be a hit. I’d also like the tacha, herbivore, CT lip liner, lip gloss, interested in the beauty blender option, and Dr Brandt eye creme. And of course mascara is a everyone guaranteed. Can’t wait till August my birthday month!!! 💗💗💗

Makeup86

The watermelon scent smells cheap to me but other people love it.

Andih

I’ve been trying to figure that out all along. Nothing adds up to 500.00 . People were complaining last bag that the everyone’s choice was 111 skin serum, but at least there was more of a chance to meet 500. There must gexanother product that’s worth 150.00 that the only way I see it adding up to 500. They haven’t shown beauty blender yet?? So who knows .

Jacqueline

This one is only worth $350 :/

Beth

It says “could be worth up to $500”. Nowhere does it state every box is valued at $500. Reading is fundamental!

Kim

I really want that palette! All i ever get in my other sub boxes seem to be reds and browns, no matter what i put in my profiles!!! Oh well. Im not gonna hold my breath. Great selection though…

Nicole

Nope, not for me. The only thing I would be interested in is the Herbivore and there’s no guarantee I would even get it. This is far too make-up heavy for me and it’s make-up for people who aren’t 44. Don’t get me wrong, I love bright palettes and am definitely not a neutral gal, but all that highlighter…none of that would look flattering on me. Enjoy make-up lovers! Hopefully I will be able to get a spot on X again in the future.

Makeup86

I’m the same age as you and pretty makeup will still be pretty when I’m 100. I’m not giving up stuff just because I’ve seen more calendar pages than others.

Ranee'

Could not agree with you more,Nicole..I’ll be 60 Sunday June 27….and this box x is not for me…except for the skincare..so I’m skipping august…but, this would be a fun box if I was 20 something..

Makeup86

Everything in the spoilers would look great on someone 60 if they were good at technique.

Kristin

Too funny I cancelled the X after the last one because I want make up and it was pretty much all skincare. I have tons of other subs that I get skincare, no makeup, from.

Rebecca

Things I really want: The Tatcha, the Glow Recipe mask and either of the Herbivore products. Things I’ll end up with: Mascara, highlighter, light lock powder, lip pencil, liquid lip balm, the Volition, Nue Co. and the bag.

Rachael

I can’t imagine not being interested in the volition product and wanting the herbivore or the glow recipe 🤣

KayKay

Hahahahahahaha!

Jeanine

Same

Amanda

I think they said everyone will get a highlighter. I updated my profile to say rarely to eyeshadow in the hopes I get the Tatcha instead of the palette. I also really want the glow recipe mask. Fingers crossed!

Prettypony

I signed up for the first time for this. I really want that palette. I hope I get it!

Megan

me too, and me too!

DJ

Wow this os an amazing box! When should I sign up to get this one? Im guessing after Julys box?

Shannon

I’d sign up now if you want off the waitlist.

Jody

I am in. I am really hoping for the Glow mask. That is currently my favorite brand.

JoJoB

What I think they mean (and this is 100% just a straight up guess-I literally have no info to base this on) is that these are the FULL SPOILERS as in “these are all the items we are going to SPOIL”. There are plenty of other items we won’t know about until the box is live but these are the only ones they will officially tell us about before then. Super confusing.

Jeanine

Yes!! I agree 💯

Kimberly

Ughhh.. I am on the fence. I really don’t want two highlighters and am afraid what the fillers will be! Of all of Halseys products, I love her lippies, was looking forward to trying other things. But really I don’t need Highlighter at all..I can already be seen from Space. But TWO in one box seems like overkill!!

Kimberly

There was an article released that said everyone got two Halsey items.

Meghan

Yea so that means they are giving us another product from About Face in the Glam X. Not a 2nd Highlighter.

Shannon

I think we will all get one or the other of the highlighters. But ya never know anymore lol.

Lindsay Kilpatrick

It’s one or the other, so you’ll only receive 1 of the highlighter formulas not both.

Carol

I like the products in this one a lot more than the previous versions, but I just cannot justify getting that many full-size products lol.

Jill

This is my first time doing GBX. So, will our three choices be from among these products? And then Ipsy picks the mascara and then other items? Or are Ipsy’s picks among these items, and our choices are of other items they haven’t shown? Or some mix of that? (I hope this makes some sort of sense!)

Marion

We won’t know for sure about most of them. The only item that’s guaranteed to be in every box so far is the mascara. In one of Halsey’s promos for Ipsy on Instagram, she did also specify that the CT lip liner & the Roen lip balm are Choice items. (The catch there is that not everyone is offered all the Choice items.)

Elaine

I believe they said everyone’s getting the mascara and a highlighter.
You won’t know until the 2nd when you make your choices other than above.

Katrina

I am so confused by this post title. Why does it say “Full Spoilers”? Are they no longer going to have the Laniege lip mask?

Makeup86

The Laniege lip mask just sits on top of your lips. A lip oil is better.

Nataliya

Those Laneige lip masks are available at TJMaxx for a few bucks. So if you don’t get it in the GBX (I never even saw the spoiler for a lip mask lol), you can always pick one up at TJ. And they have all the flavors.

Katrina

Thank you MSA for updating the title. Makes sense now. 🙂

Snow

These all look very nice! I knew my girl Halsey wouldn’t disappoint lol.

Jessica

I desperately want the glow recipe mask and if I can get it the entire box would be worth it to me. I’d also like the CT lipliner and an Herbivore oil, but the Glow Recipe mask is my top pick

Kenley

Hoping for the powdered highlighter, Tatcha, Glow Recipe, and Volition 🤞🏻

Angel

Can someone explain how there can even be a box worth $500? I picked the 7 most expensive items (plus the mascara) and it equals only $375…. not even close to 500. Are there more spoilers coming then or is this it?

Andih

I’ve been trying to figure that out all along. Nothing adds up to 500.00 . People were complaining last bag that the everyone’s choice was 111 skin serum, but at least there was more of a chance to meet 500. There must gexanother product that’s worth 150.00 that the only way I see it adding up to 500. They haven’t shown beauty blender yet?? So who knows .

Meghan

I could care less about the $500 value. I don’t want 111Skin just to make the value to $500. It’s a nonsense brand I don’t even care for. Would rather have a $5 product that I’ll actually use. So that really means nothing. I don’t want some fake filler products just ti get the value uo to $500. Give me things I want and will use.

Alice

Angel, I was wondering the same. If these are not all the spoilers, why does this post say ‘full spoilers’?

Kenley

They will have tons of other filler products that will go into the box as well. They spoil the best products but there will be others.

Rachel

For May’s GBX, the “fillers” in my box were actually quality/known brands like an ABH brow pen and MAC lipstick as the lower RV items Ipsy picked… I love and use both! (others got the Kosas mascara and Tower 28 lip gloss) For my three choices, I cannot remember if I was offered private label/DLS but I selected Christophe Robin, Sunday Riley Vit C Glow Oil, and the Riki mirror. I also got the Herbivore facial and the One Star eyeshadow palette as Ipsy picks. Overall, I felt the value of my May GBX to be very high quality items and stuff I actually use/want.

Julia

Emanuela “no I don’t really own DLS, I swear” the Alibaba queen!

Kenley

They will throw in an obscure brand that will be worth $122 🙄 or more

Angel

To clarify- this is referring to their original advertising that the box would be worth up to $500. It even says it in the article here at the top “Here’s how it works: Choose 3 of your products during Ultra Personalization, 8/2–8/3, and Halsey will custom-pick 5 more products for you to discover. You’ll receive 8 full-size products worth up to $500.”

KayKay

Oh no, I hope they don’t really have more 111 Skin lying around to give us LOL.

monica

It says that the box COULD BE worth up to $500, not that it would be for sure. There are still the spoilers for the choice items to be revealed, which is where they usually put some of the higher dollar items.

Renee

That means they still have some 111Skin lying around.
