I’ve had Ipsy ultimate and Boxy Premium and Boxy Luxe for a while and at first Ipsy was my favorite but Boxy has upped their game and Ipsy is having some issues it appears. Starting December Ipsy just forgot to send my bag and I’ve had to repeatedly send emails in hopes of receiving it. Comparing what I’ve gotten from Ipsy and boxy in December and January boxy has been way better and Ipsy is way more expensive. I get a black eyeliner in every Ipsy box even though my profile says I rarely wear it. I hope February is better if not I’ll be canceling

At first i loved my bags, but i kept getting the same things over&over again. After 3 months of nothing but makeup brushes and nail polish i reached out, they have 'noted' on my file to opte me out of these for good, i STILL get brushes almost every box, so i upgraded to the last sized box so i could pick at least one item, they change the dates on which to pick& rarely email to update you it's time to pick your product (only open for a 24hr window)

I have been using Ipsy for years now (well, my mom gets it for me as a present for christmas!) I really enjoy this service..it gives me a chance to try out new products. Sometimes I wish they would personalize it a bit more..sometimes I feel as though the color choices in the box aren't season appropriate. But I always enjoy getting a new makeup bag! I have found some brands that I now love that I hadn't heard of previously. But I have also found a lot of brands that I didn't enjoy at all. I feel like a lot of the products I get go to waste because I never end up feeling like I can use them. I do feel like they have been stepping it up a little bit lately! But overall it's not my favorite makeup subscription service.

I had been with Ipsy 2 or 3 years. I went from the little Ipsy Glam bag to the to the Glam Bag Plus. All the while I was getting less and less interested, but I kept on anyway. When they started raving about how fantastic the Ultimate Box was going to be, how much it was going to be worth with a mixture of full size and deluxe samples, i thought I would try it out. When i got the new box, i couldn't even tell which were the samples and which were the regular size!! I looked at the booklet to try and find out, I noticed they didn't even put the prices in the booklet. I started reading around and found out that everyone was like this. They even had 2 masks and counted it full size. That was the straw that broke the camel's back for me. I up and cancelled a few days later. The longer i thought about it, the madder i got. They lost a Lot of people. I heard they still aren't putting prices in. They know it's a rip off!! I signed up for BoxyCharm then. Wow! I couldn't believe the difference. The ones that complain should join Ipsy and they would know how good they have it. The stuff is fantastic and you actually want to use it!! The items are high end and really do what they say they do. I've already got on one of the swap pages and bought more of the makeup i fell in love with. They started in the November box putting in little peel off swatches for foundation and concealer! One thing i will say is this month when they went to do the add ons, the site crashed and very few got to buy any. Some people complained about it, but they just hadn't expected the amount of traffic. They tried for several days and finally gave up. I'm sure next month they will get better. I'm just so happy with the regular things, i can patiently wait for it to get fixed. If you were with Ipsy as long as you said, you will absolutely love BoxyCharm!!!

I have to say I'm very disappointed with this months glam bag plus. I feel like most of this months glam bag products are the same as last month's glam bag plus. I really hope that next month's glam bag plus is better or I just might cancel my subscription. I have been with you guys for almost 5 years and lately its been kinda bad.

I like the my subscription for the first few months. Now I’m bored of getting the same products over and over. They also have tiny sized products in add ons that aren’t worth the cost. Make sure you look at size of product bc many times I thought I was getting bigger products. The ultimate bag was a BIG disappointment for the $$$$$$,I was expecting something great but nope 👎😬. I enjoy watching the fun women online but they need to step up their game on getting better and new stuff.

I receive the regular $12 glam bag. My November bag is so cute. I love leopard print! My bag includes....... MURAD essential C moisture spf30 (my choice)..............PIXI BT PETRA mesmerizing mineral eyeshadow duo in the shade "Bronze"..........L.O.C.K. lock it foundation. In the shade "4 Light buff"............GRACE & STELLA blackhead removal mask..........My add ons.........HOLLA NEON tinted lip balm in "call me" .............GIGI GORGEOUS less is more lip gloss in the shade "get into it".........and VASANTI power oils lip gloss in the shade "Supermom". Grand total $21. I really love Ipsy's curation this month. No mascara or black eyeliner!!! I love lip gloss, tinted balm, and creamy regular lipstick. Those liquid lippies are awful. So drying. I will never upgrade my subcription to Ipsy. It's so fun to try new things.

Hi. I became a subscriber to IPSY in October, I signed up for the Ultimate Glam bag at that point however my card was charged $12.72 AND $26.50 for the subscription. I thought this was an error that would correct itself, but never did NOR did I get a response to contact in regard to it. This months (December) subscription charge was $12.72 AND $26.50 AND $53.00!!!!!! Last month after receiving my bags, I messaged IPSY that there was some kind of mistake and NOTHING was done about it, AND NO ONE BOTHERED TO MESSAGE ME BACK! There is NO way I am paying almost $100 for this stuff!!! I went through the cancellation process last night and I hope they refund my money. I liked the products, but they increased the price without noticed for the ultimate bag, who in their right mind would pay $50 for the ultimate when it just combines the two bags and adds nothing extra and you can just get the 2 bags for $37!!!!
