    What is Ipsy Glam Bag? Is it different from Ipsy?

  • Ipsy Glam Bag is the official name for Ipsy’s standard $10 per month subscription box, but members will often refer to it simply as “ipsy” :)

    How much does Ipsy cost?

  • Ipsy Glam Bag (Ipsy’s super popular standard subscription) costs just $10 per month with free shipping. It’s one of the most affordable beauty subscription boxes out there.

    What is Ipsy Glam Bag Plus?

  • Existing Ipsy members can upgrade from the standard Glam Bag membership to Ipsy Glam Bag Plus, a deluxe version of their subscription that includes only full-size items! (Glam Bag Plus currently only ships to ths US.)

    Glam Bag Plus is $25 per month and often has a waitlist for membership. Once you’ve signed up for Ipsy Glam Bag, keep an eye out on our site—we’ll let you know as soon as memberships are open again!

    Is ipsy personalized?

  • Yes! Ipsy has a system called IpsyMatch, which they use to connect members with beauty products that best fit their unique needs. When you sign up for Ipsy, you’ll go through their beauty quiz, which asks about your style, skin tone, eye color, hair color, and familiarity with makeup. (Once you’re subscribed, you can update your beauty quiz answers at any time!) Each month, the IpsyMatch system takes that info and matches you with five of the 40+ new products they source each month. Take the beauty quiz now!

    What kinds of beauty products will I get?

  • Each month, the IpsyMatch program looks at the preferences you set for your account and matches you with five of the 40+ new products they’re offering for the month. That means you’ll get a mix of full- and sample-sized beauty goodies from premium, up-and-coming, and notable drugstore brands that complement your specific beauty needs!

    Where does ipsy ship?

  • Ipsy ships to the US (via DHL or FedEx and the USPS) and Canada (via Landmark Global).

    How do I pause/cancel my Ipsy account?

  • If you have products you’re still working through or just need a break, you can pause your subscription via your account. You can cancel your account online, but after you cancel in your account, you need to confirm via e-mail. See the details here.

    What is Ipsy Shopper and Ipsy Offers?

  • Ipsy members also get access to Ipsy Shopper, where you can purchase premium beauty products and earn cash back! It’s an awesome way to expand your makeup collection beyond your monthly box.

    Part of Ipsy Shopper is Ipsy Offers—daily promotions that give members excusive deals on Ipsy Shopper products. (Note that Ipsy Offers are only available in the US at this time!)

    Does Ipsy offer add-ons?

  • Yes! On the 2nd of the month, subscribers will get a Spoiler Alert notification about their upcoming box. At that point, you can add up to three products to your monthly box, such as your deluxe sample size products at $3 each or full-size products at $12 each.

Love Ipsy!

I absolutely love my Ipsy glam bag! The samples are great the selection is great and if there’s products in there that I won’t use myself I just resell them on Poshmark and make my money back and then some. It’s a win-win!

I Love my Ipsy glam bag. As a newer or beginning person. I Love trying new things. I learn new things off their website when I review my bag. They show you how to use and give you tips. If your a pro then maybe this isn't the bag for you.. However for $10 you can't beat it.

This box, while great for some people, is terrible for others. I was subscribed for a very long time, even resubscribing when I had the funds to do so. However, the problem is that they don’t go by beauty preferences. You have the quiz, and it takes you maybe 3-5 minutes (which isn’t that long) but then you’ll get products that don’t do with what you ask for. I had months where all of the products were AMAZING and I loved them, and then there were other months that it just wasn’t me. My final month, which was in November, was what made me cancel. I had placed that I didn’t like oils or adventurous eyeshadows and I received both in my bag. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate any sort of makeup, but it just wasn’t something I could keep when there were better options out there.

Cancelled. I kept getting cheap brands, nothing especially for me. Colors I would never wear (orange, bright green? Come on!) Customer service was zero help.

I've been with Ipsy for a year. In the first few months, it was great. The shipping was always on time, the products were what I want to test out. However, maybe about 5 months in, Ipsy started to suck. They started giving me products I DO NOT WANT. They based our products from the quiz we take and they started giving me products I never checked in the quiz. Rather the ones I wanted to test out were never given. On top of that, the shipping the past half a year has always been delayed and it makes me annoyed that I am paying for unreliable service. I use to receive my products in the beginning of the month, now I receive them at the end which does not give me enough time to test them out and review then online. It may only cost $10 but Ipsy does not value their customers in the long run. Unsubscribed.

Not sure what everyone likes about this. Cheap make up bag and not remotely worth $10. A few creams, a tester mascara, a bleh color lip pencil and the dry shampoo that every department store giveaway gives you? And unsubscribing? You have to jump through 5 hoops and make sure you keep trying, then confirm you want to cancel. And they still email after that offering you fake free gifts.

Ipsy's shipping + add ons = VERY LONG. The shipping is pretty ok without any add ons though. Customization isn't that good but customer service helps with that.
