Patrick Ta Joins IPSY To Kick Off A New Celebrity Beauty Subscription Box

There’s a reason beauty subscription boxes are so popular—every time you get one in the mail, there’s a thrill finding out what’s inside. And thanks to a new celebrity beauty box, it’s about to get even more exciting. After IPSY’s BoxyCharm Inc. acquisition and the creation of a combined business called Beauty for All Industries (BFAI), IPSY is launching a new subscription offering, Glam Bag X, and they tapped celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta to curate the first one. “I love that IPSY stands for self-expression and empowers unique beauty because it really aligns with my personal approach to beauty, which has always been to build confidence so you can feel good in your own skin,” says Patrick Ta, founder of Patrick Ta Beauty. “IPSY also has an impressive beauty community of over 25 million and I am so excited to introduce Patrick Ta Beauty to so many beauty lovers. As a makeup artist, I’m always getting asked what products I recommend and with Glam Bag X, I get to materialize this in a very tangible way. I am also extremely protective of my brand and IPSY has been such an incredible partner, really leaning into my vision and pairing it with new ideas that I am super excited to see come to life.”

Available by subscription only, Glam Bag X is a quarterly upgrade that’s exclusively offered to IPSY Glam Bag and Glam Bag Plus members. They can opt to replace a monthly bag in February, May, August and November, with the first one shipping in February 2021. Each Glam Bag X will be curated by the biggest names in beauty and include seven to eight full size products for $55 per month. Many of the boxes will be valued at over $350, offering exclusive access to new products before they’re available to anyone else.

“Glam Bag X was designed to cater to the beauty obsessed with brands and products that are on-trend, emerging and vetted by beauty insiders,” says Emine ErSelcuk, SVP of Merchandising at IPSY. “Through data and social listening, we’ve learned that our most beauty obsessed members crave top brands and a higher degree of control over their subscription. With Glam Bag X, we are able to delight them with the discovery of some of the most coveted brands in beauty, while giving them enhanced control by enabling them to choose up to three of their full-size products from a personalized set of products.”

IPSY has always been about community, which is why they tap into their audience of over 25 million people for feedback. With over 180 million product reviews, it helps shape what’s next. They also use

‘Gift Outside The Box’ Challenges MoCo Residents To Gift Greener

GERMANTOWN, MD — Montgomery County officials are challenging residents to “gift greener” this holiday season as part of the region’s fourth annual “Gift Outside the Box” campaign.

The campaign, which kicks off Wednesday, focuses on five areas where residents can learn how to gift in a more environmentally-friendly way:

Buy Local

Gift Experiences

  • No need for a box when the gift features event tickets, Montgomery Recreation classes, music lessons, and time in nature and at parks.

Gift Greener

  • If you want to purchase brand new items, make sure that they encourage green living and, when possible, help people lower their utility bills. Consider LED lightbulbs, smart thermostats, and reusable materials such as water bottles, metal straws, and cloth napkins.

Give Back

  • Among the most appreciated gifts are donations to local charities in the name of a family member or friend. Also, consider setting aside time to spend with friends and family by volunteering together.

Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle

  • Reduce waste by buying gifts made from recycled or reused materials, regift items not used from last year, and recycle all of paper (minimize wrapping all together by using reusable gift bags and cloth).

“The difficult times created by this pandemic gives us an opportunity to think about supporting our local businesses as a way to give greener this holiday season,” said Adam Ortiz, director of the county’s Department of Environmental Protection. “DEP and our partners are challenging residents to reduce waste by thinking differently about how they shop for and give gifts. Together, we can reduce waste, save energy, and build a strong local economy.”

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, DEP will host a series of new virtual events to highlight ways residents can gift outside the box this holiday season:

  • Reduce, Reuse and Recycle: Wednesday, Nov. 18, 10-11 a.m.

  • Gift Greener: Thursday, Dec. 3, 5:30-7 p.m.

  • Gift Experiences: Monday, Dec. 7, 4-5 p.m.

  • Buy Local: Tuesday, Dec. 8, 5:30-7 p.m.

  • Give Back and Give Thanks: Wednesday, Dec. 16, 5-6 p.m.

Holidays this year inspire thinking outside the gift box

DEAR ABBY: With the holidays fast approaching, I’m starting to think about shopping. Honestly, I’m tired of shopping for adults who don’t need anything. Finding gifts for them becomes more daunting each year. I think gift cards and direct money are tacky Christmas presents.

Do you think it would be odd to ask my adult children and other family members to select a charity they would like me to donate to instead of buying them gifts that just take up more room? This year has been hard on many people financially, but most of my family members are lucky enough to still be working through everything that has happened. I think charities could use a boost. — NEW IDEA IN FLORIDA

DEAR NEW IDEA: I am sure they could. Your idea is terrific, and it reminded me of a letter I printed many years ago, which I have edited because of space limitations. Read on:

DEAR ABBY: Like many families, we have wrestled with the “What do we get for people who have everything?” dilemma. Last year, our family finally hit upon a solution. We discussed it with our grandparents. They agreed it would be more charitable for us to give something to people who lack everyday necessities, so we adopted a battered children’s shelter. Those little ones are truly refugees. They need everything from toothbrushes and hairbrushes to baby formula and diapers — not to mention toys and games.

To our delight, our neighbors got involved in our project, too. For weeks, on Thursdays, neighbors would leave donations in a sack by their mailbox, and we would pick them up. Our goal was for every child in that shelter to wake up on Christmas morning to find packages of necessities and a few playthings.

The project created so much excitement among our neighbors that we collected enough for two shelters. There were pillows, socks, underwear, bath products, cold medicines, books, towels, baby clothes, etc. Each child also got a large gift basket, including a nonbreakable tree ornament to help him or her remember this holiday.


The cost was small when spread over so many families, but the rewards couldn’t have been greater. We felt our project embodied the true spirit of Christmas. It sensitized our children to the needs of others all year long.

Because it was one of the best holidays we have ever had, we’re repeating the drive again this year. When people join together, everyone CAN make a difference. — SANTA’S HELPERS IN PHOENIX

DEAR SANTA’S HELPERS: Your signature describes you fittingly. With that in mind, I hope readers will be sensitive to the needs of charities in their local communities this year. Because monies that would ordinarily have been donated to local charities may have been diverted in other directions, many charities are having difficulty raising enough to meet their budgets.

Remember, folks, charity begins at home — and by that I mean the communities in which you dwell.

Ellen DeGeneres faces backlash over quality of ‘Be Kind’ gift box after toxic workplace scandal

Ellen DeGeneres, who  launched $270 ‘Be Kind’ gift box months after toxic workplace scandal, has received flak again over the the contents that include a painting set, earbuds and a collapsible cup.

The 62-year-old presenter revealed the new product on her self-titled talk show, but the customers and fans don’t seem to be impressed  over the contents as they took to social media with complaints. 

Ellen has come under fire  for the quality of the gift box, which she was promoting after a toxic workplace scandal which ripped through her production earlier this year.

The renowned TV host launched a new season of her gift box, which retails for $54.99 quarterly and $270 for the year.

She  took to Instagram to share a video of her showing off the box, which she contains a painting set, earbuds, a collapsible cup and a gold ‘hope’ necklace, but her followers were less than impressed.

One reacted as saying: ‘Never got my summer box, can’t get anyone to respond to my emails? I don’t even have an account anymore for some reason, but I still have my invoice.’

‘The headphones in my box don’t work very well – very disappointed in the quality,’ another responded.

A third said: “Can someone please contact me. I have sent seven emails and heard nothing back. I was double-billed for my premium box. Please contact me.”

Previously, it was reported that employees from Ellen Digital Ventures, a digital extension of The Ellen DeGeneres Show which produces content for EllenTube, were laid off as WarnerMedia underwent a restructuring.
