Use to love it, looked forward to every month. But they have now become cheap with their bags. Bags use to be nice zipper bag. But now they changed them to a drawstring style, super thin, can see through the fabric, cheap looking. Horrible quality, and sadly last few months have been nothing but broken pallets of makeup or mirrors. Very disappointed...

I had read about the terrible service that Ipsy has, but I thought I would still try and judge for myself. Lo and behold, Ipsy managed to stuff up my 1st ever glam bag. Contacting Ipsy only gave me canned answers. They somehow managed to send me a tracking number for SOMEONE ELSE’S BAG and lost my bag in the meantime. What are they doing with my personal information if they can get all these things mixed up. After 3 emails they finally agreed to give me 600 points which are completely useless to me since I would need to give Ipsy more money in order to redeem my points. BYE Ipsy, I will never ever join your subscription again

I get Ipsy for my daughters and as an occasional treat for myself. I've never had any problems. Canceling is easy and the girls like their choices.

    What is Ipsy and how does it work?

  • Ipsy ($12 per month) is one our readers’ favorite beauty subscription boxes (Check out their full list of 2019 favorites here!) Glam Bag is their standard subscription, but existing members can also upgrade to their Glam Bag Plus subscription ($25 per month for five full-size products).

    Ipsy Glam Bags include a mix of 5 full- and sample-size makeup, skincare, and hair products, (and sometimes beauty tools, too) plus a cute makeup bag with a different design each month. Products range from high-end brands to notable drugstore names, and everything is personalized to YOUR beauty preferences! When you sign up for Ipsy, you’ll complete their Beauty Quiz, noting things like your skin, eye, and hair color, as well as a bit about your expertise and style. Then, the IpsyMatch system will pick the perfect combination of products for your preferences!

    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.

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 is Ipsy Shopper and Ipsy Offers?

    Does Ipsy offer add-ons?
