Bye-bye Ipsy! Both Glam bag and Glam Bag plus were awful! I think I got the leftovers!Glam Bag plus is more money I thought that it would be different than the regular glam bag but it hasn't proven so. Why is it the same and more money?? I think Glossybox and Allure and the others are much much better for the money. I don't know why you're at the top of the ratings for the beauty subscriptions. The only good thing is a customer service.

I've been getting Ipsy for three years and it seems like the past six months, I've been getting bronzers in every single bag. I have redone my profile quiz and done all the bag reviews and I still keep getting bronzers. Other than that, I'm usually pretty happy with the items I receive.

I am new to Ipsy and received my first bag in July. I bought a couple of add ons that were a great deal for products I already love at less then 1/2 price, I was under the impression that I was going to get an introduction gift as well but there was nothing extra, I was very pleased with the face mask. At first I thought the blusher was going to be much too pale but actually it;s lovely - and while the last thing in the world I need is another brown eyeshadow at least this one The Balm Oh La La is very light so it;s a bit different. I hope NOT to see any more brown eyeshadows! LOL! Not crazy about Hemptz Body lotion but that;s ok - Will try the Roller Lash mascara but hope different kinds will come - would love to receive concealers, primers, eye primers and brushes- NOT brown lipsticks! I look forward to having fun trying new products - I'm 70 years old - I LOVE my make up and skincare I just realise that glitter highlighters may not be up my alley LOL!!! So far so good!

I have been getting the ipsy glam bag for two months. I really like the products that they send and looking forward to my August glam bag.

I usually am pretty happy with my Ipsy bag, although lately I’ve begun to notice a reoccurring trend in that they are ALWAYS sending more bronzers and/or blush than anything. I was bummed that I was missing one of my items this month! Boo! I hope they get it together and go back to the Ipsy I knew and loved before I switch to Burch Box or something!

I love the ipsy glam bag--for the price its a fun "toy" to get in the mail every month. I do wish that they would send according to skin tone, cool or warm (I don't recall if that was an option on the quiz?). I seem to always get warm colors when I prefer cool. I do have a neutral tone so I can wear either one, but I do definitely prefer cool tones (and if it was an option on the quiz, I would have chosen cool as a skin tone). Other than the tone, it seems to follow my profile pretty well, although they do always sneak a skin or hair care item in there even though I do not want either of those. But it is still alot of fun, especially since a couple of girls at work also do subs and we do a little swapping. Definitely worth it, imo. :) PS While I do like the glam bag, I cancelled the plus box. I've gotten 3 boxes and while there were a couple items that were fun, MOST of the items had nothing to do with my profile and I ended up giving a lot of stuff away, so it just wasn't worth it. I don't know why they seem less attentive to your preferences with the plus boxes than they do the glam bags...?

Hi, I am so excited to try ipsy but my credit card had four charges on it and i only joined the one year plan and paid for the year. The other charge was for the upgrade to Plus but I was charged two more times for that. So I have paid for the year and three glam plus bags and haven't had any shipments. Customer service numbers aren't working? I emailed several times but no answer. Has anyone had this issue? I wish they would answer my emails.

I’ve been done with Ipsy for awhile now only I just keep forgetting to cancel it BUT when I seen the Tetris balms I was super excited! I LOVE lip balms (high end and drug store... But I didn’t get anything Tetris besides the bag (which they show I got the yellow one but mine was green.) They also show I got a Tetris shadow brush which I didn’t! Why even have a collab if everyone isn’t going to get something from it? On eBay there are a couple of the orange balms for sell (which would be the last one I would want.) Unless I’m missing something u can’t even just buy the balms from Ipsy... u have to buy the entire collection or nothing. I’m just over it, every month they send me more warm colors that will never work on my extremely cool toned skin! If they actually sent stuff that I could wear it would be a great deal but they don’t.

Did not get my last bags in the mail and I've tried to contact support. They will not refund me and will only replace a bag before 45 days. Ali, is terrible and very dismissive. I requested a Supervisor and nothing...dead space. This happens every time and why it has taken me so long to speak with someone about this issue. They never escalate it. I simply needed a refund but now I will cancel my membership.
