Introducing ipsyMatch!


You’re no carbon copy, so why should your Glam Bag be? Our team at ipsy has been working hard to create ipsyMatch, a personalization tool that uses the results from your profile, your Beauty Quiz, and your activity on ipsy.com to create a Glam Bag filled with the best beauty finds just for you, month after month!


We put ipsyMatch to work in a BIG way with your May “Spring Fling” Glam Bag. With 14 different products to choose from, we determined the best picks for you. You told us whether or not you like self-tanner, if you wear lipstick or lipgloss (or both!), your skin tone, and what type of hair you have, and we put all of that information together to make a Glam Bag we thought you would love!


Since this was our first time customizing so many products, we know it won’t be perfect. In some cases, we were not able to match every single product with your profile, so we sent you a bag that had the most products that we thought you would love.


If you have your eye on something that you did not receive in your bag, we encourage you to check out our Swap Forum at http://mygl.am/glammieswapforum where you can trade items with other subscribers. Also, be sure to improve your chances of being better matched in the future by making sure your beauty style and preferences are updated in our Beauty Quiz. If you need to, you can re-take the quiz here: http://www.mygl.am/retakequiz.


We are continuously working on ipsyMatch and it will continue to get better and better every month. We want to hear what you think, and if you have any questions, suggestions, or feedback, don’t hesitate to tell us! Head to our facebook fanpage at http://facebook.com/ipsy and leave us a post or e-mail ipsyCare at http://help.ipsy.com!
