I always LOVE my ipsy bag! I get the $12 original glam bag. I enjoy now having the option of choosing one of my items. The $3 and $12 add ons are fun too! This month I added a full size Dr. Brandt exfoliant for $12. It retails for $79. I have several small ipsy bags filled with everything I need for a full face of makeup. One for work, an out on the town bag, a little travel size one, and one for my purse. Love the samples as well as full size once in a while.

Ipsy customer service has been dropping the ball lately. They billed me when I asked them to pause my bag 2 weeks prior to billing. I had multiple checks bounce due to their mistake. Ipsy refuses to take responsibility, then offered to allow me to keep my bag due to their mistake. Well, thanks Ipsy, but that doesn’t take care of my problem with my bank or my bills that weren’t paid because of your negligence. I’m done!

I trusted Ipsy and thought that they actually cared about their customers. Apparently, I was wrong. They were extremely misleading with their Glam Bag Ultimate subscription. I no longer trust them as a company. I have been subscribed to them for almost three years and have now canceled all of my subscriptions with them. My last bag will be the march one.

If you’re reading all the complaints from customers on social media , listen to them before you go with this subscription. I wanted to form my own opinion and gave them a try anyway and man was that a mistake . I’ve been with them for 2 months and my first box was underwhelming but I rolled with it. It’s a subscription box , you’re not always going to get the things you’d want . I had to purchase $15 worth of add ons just to make my box worth it . I ordered 2 Ipsy offers from them and 1 just never came . They finally refunded me my money after a month because the product was out of stock so they couldn’t replace it . Crazy thing is , they never even shipped the item at all . According to tracking it never left their facility and I see this happen a lot they will just over sell inventory. The last straw was the new $50 ultimate box ! It was terrible . It’s like they just sent all their left over stock out in these boxes that no one wanted and came out with their Betty boop makeup set so they could inflate the prices on those items and make the box seem worth it . The box is supposed to have 8 full size products and 4 sample sizes. I was one of the lucky ones that actually got 7 full sizes but many people only got 4 or 5 full sizes . Which included sheet masks , chapsticks, and lip gloss from low end or unheard of brands. Ipsy hyped this up so much made so many false promises and failed with this launch on so many different levels. I’ve canceled my subscription and have moved on to fab fit fun and boxy charm .

I am soooooo happy I stuck with the basic $12 glam bag. I literally got exactly I wanted! I added on the Dr. Brandt exfoliator for just $12. Yippee!!!!! Cbd lip balm, Betty Boop nail polish in a deep wine/ berry shade, IT cosmetics foundation in light (my pick), jelly blush pot pefect for my "take along" small cosmetics bag, and the First Aid exfoliating pads. I'm reading so many negative reviews. I just dont get it. There are going to be items that arent luxe or what you would choose for yourself. Thats why these bags are so much fun in my humble opinion. I'm a 55 year old lady who has found fun trendy products that I never would have thought to use. Products that I later purchased in full size. The bold eye colors can be used with a soft touch. I've created some unexpected and gorgeous results. Ladies, nobody is holding a gun to your heads. If you are unhappy simply quit!

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!
