Everything You Need to Know About Building Your Glam Bag Plus


Glam Bag Plus is now better than ever. We’re so excited to introduce a feature where you can build your perfect bag every month from the 2nd through 3rd! Now, you choose three (yes, three) of the five full-size products in your Glam Bag Plus, shop your Add-Ons, and see what two personalized faves IPSY has picked just for you—all in one go. Wondering how it works? We’ve got your questions answered here. Note: The products shown in this video are illustrative only and will change each month.

What’s new with Glam Bag Plus?

You asked; we listened. You wanted more Choice for your Glam Bag Plus, so we're giving you a beauty experience with even more flexibility and freedom. We’re doing this by introducing the ability to build your bag each month, allowing you to choose three products you want while you discover two more from IPSY—making IPSY the most personalized and customizable beauty membership on the market.

We’ve also given your Glam Bag Plus a makeover. Now, all your full-size faves will arrive in a take-anywhere drawstring Glam Bag Plus that’s sized to hold all of your essentials—from those always-lost lip balms to your on-the-go makeup items to your full-size products. And your bag is always designed to each month's theme, so you know it’ll be extra cute (and different every month!). Your Glam Bag Plus will also be shipped in a new recyclable mailer to minimize waste and keep your faves secure for their journey to you.

When do I get to choose?

You get to build your *perfect* bag every month starting on the 2nd at 9 a.m. ET until the 3rd at 6 p.m. ET. This is when you’ll choose your three Glam Bag Plus products from a personalized assortment, discover the two must-haves we’ve chosen just for you, and shop your Add-Ons—so set your reminders! With so much to look forward to, you don’t want to miss out.

How many products do I get to choose from?

For each Choice spot in your Glam Bag Plus (and remember you have three!), you’ll get to choose from a selection of at least four products we’ve picked just for you. That makes for 12 products total for your three Choices—because who doesn’t love options? Just remember to make your Choice ASAP, since supplies are limited.

How are my products selected for me?

All your Glam Bag Plus picks—including your Choice options—are picked just for you using our proprietary IPSY Match technology, which takes into account your Beauty Quiz, product ratings, and reviews. For your five personalized bag products each month, we start by selecting two we think you’ll be obsessed with. Then, we curate your three Choice assortments with more beauty must-haves that are fit to your preferences.

Do I have to choose?

Choosing is totally optional (but where’s the fun in that?). When you make your Choices, it helps us learn more about your preferences—which means when you build your bag, your experience gets better over time.

But if you want to make your Glam Bag Plus feel even more like a gift to yourself, you can let us do the choosing for you by clicking “Skip Choice & Shop Add-Ons.” You’ll then be able to add your own personal touch with some seriously great deals on product Add-Ons.

What about Add-Ons?

You still have access to your Add-Ons on the 2nd of the month (and by now, you already know how amazing these deals are—so don’t miss out!). A quick refresher: You get to shop your Add-Ons that ship free with your bag as soon as you choose, so be sure to confirm your three Choices early. That way, you’ll get to complete your bag with product Add-Ons ASAP.

Which memberships can build their bags from the 2nd to 3rd?

Right now, only Glam Bag Plus and Glam Bag X members can build their bags during that two-day period. If you currently have Glam Bag Plus, then you already know how awesome it is to build your bag each month—but if you really want to take your beauty routine to the next level, check out Glam Bag X. You’ll get to build your bag on upgrade months and build your Glam Bag X with up to $350 in value.

Do I still have access to Flash sales?

Yes, of course! Flash will continue to be around the 20th to 25th of the month (look out for an email alerting you to when Flash is live). Previously, you’d have to make your Choice in order to access Flash. But now, you’ll be able to access Flash directly, since your Choice date has moved to the 2nd through 3rd so you can build your bag. Happy deal-snagging!
