See How IPSY Beauty Editors Are Building Their Perfect April Glam Bag Plus


As beauty editors at IPSY, we try out a ton of products (and we mean a ton). Hundreds of products come across our desks every single month. And while we’re busy swatching, swiping, and testing so that we can give you all the tips and tricks you need to know—we’re also keeping mental notes of our personal faves.

Luckily for us (and you!), those favorites are more likely than ever to end up in our bags. That’s because a few months ago we launched Ultra Personalization for Glam Bag Plus. Every month you get to choose three (!!!) of the five full-size products in your Glam Bag Plus, shop for amazing Add-Ons, and see what two products IPSY has selected just for you. All of this means you can build your perfect bag every single month.

Want to know what IPSY beauty editors are coveting this month? Here are all the products we’re choosing, adding on, and crossing our fingers IPSY includes in our own April 2021 Glam Bag Plus.

Marta Topran, Editorial Director

ITEM BEAUTY Lite Sauce Balancing Gel Moisturizer For Oily & Combo Skin

1. ITEM BEAUTY Lite Sauce Balancing Gel Moisturizer For Oily & Combo Skin

“Summer is right around the corner and I can already feel my face getting greasier by mid-day. I think it’s super important to transition your skincare with the seasons—what your skin craves in winter (read: rich formulas) can be too much come spring and summer. I’ll be swapping this gel texture into my warm weather routine for sure.”

RMS BEAUTY Living Luminizer

2. RMS BEAUTY Living Luminizer

“Best. Highlighter. Ever. No exaggeration, RMS’ creamy, melt-into-skin formulas give you the perfect your-skin-but-glowier look you want from a highlighter. No obvious glitter chunks here—just sophisticated-looking glow.”

INKED BY DANI Inspired Temporary Tattoo Pack

3. INKED BY DANI Inspired Temporary Tattoo Pack

“Back when I used to see my friends for fun weekend getaways, I’d surprise them by bringing a pack of temporary tattoos. It’s a fun way to amp up the celebratory feel of any get together. I love how delicate and pretty these INKED BY DANI designs are. I’ll be stashing them until I can see my crew again!”

Pia Bhattacharya, Senior Beauty Editor

BABE LASH Essential Serum

1. BABE LASH Essential Serum

“I’m usually pretty skeptical (OK, more like scared) of anything that promises it’ll make my lashes grow. I treat my fine lashes pretty delicately. But I just had to see why this serum is so hyped. After a few short weeks, I swear my lashes were longer and slightly thicker. Def trying this stuff on my brows. Love it.”

COCOKIND Oil to Milk Cleanser

2. COCOKIND Oil to Milk Cleanser

“I love eye makeup—the stubborn, smudge-proof kind that looks fab all day but takes forever to take off. This super satisfying cleanser has made my nightly routine way less of a struggle. The oil formula gets rid of everything in one shot, and then transforms into a milky cleanser that gets my skin so soft and clean.”

Hannah Cassidy, Senior Beauty Editor

THEN I MET YOU Calming Tide Gel Cream™

1. THEN I MET YOU Calming Tide Gel Cream™

“I’m not sure if it’s normal to have an emotional attachment to a skincare product, but here we are. The packaging that fits in the palm of my hand, the cooling gel texture that sinks into my skin, the fresh, citrusy scent—this lightweight moisturizer brings SO much joy. ”

THISWORKS Deep Sleep Body Cocoon

2. THISWORKS Deep Sleep Body Cocoon

“Now that I spend most of my life in soft, pajama-like clothing, the lines between daytime and nighttime have been totally blurred and my brain doesn’t know when it’s time to wind down. I’ve been a huge fan of THISWORKS’ pillow spray, but love keeping this hand cream on my nightstand, too. The dreamy scent acts like a sleepytime switch and my dry, over-sanitized hands get much needed relief.”

KAJA Mochi Pop in 03 Spoils of Mars

3. KAJA Mochi Pop in 03 Spoils of Mars

“I own an embarrassing amount of blush—it’s my can’t-live-without product and when I saw this ‘bouncy’ formula, I knew I needed to add it to the collection. It glides on like a cream and dries to a skin-like, powder finish and gives my cheeks a glowy pop of color—and the juicy berry shade? Gorge.”

Maddie Aberman, Beauty Editor

VITABRID C12 Vitamin C Dual Drop Serum

1. VITABRID C12 Vitamin C Dual Drop Serum

“A staple in my routine: vitamin C serum. This can’t-miss step is my secret for even-toned, glowing skin. Seriously, if I miss just a few days I can see a difference. I love how easy this dropper formula is to use. When I’m in a rush, I add it right to my morning moisturizer-sunscreen combo for quick applications.”

VICTORIA BECKHAM BEAUTY Future Lash, Smudge-Free Lifting Mascara

2. VICTORIA BECKHAM BEAUTY Future Lash, Smudge-Free Lifting Mascara

“If you’re anything like me, you find it almost impossible to apply mascara without getting little flecks of black all over your eyelids. This tiny, precision wand on this lifting and lengthening mascara solves that problem. It even works to cleanly coat my long lower lashes.”

KOPARI Coconut Body Glow

3. KOPARI Coconut Body Glow

“I used to be so confused by body oils, until I heard this tip: Apply them in the shower on your still-damp skin for maximum absorption and mess-free application. Now, I don’t end a shower without a coat of this stuff. I love how nourishing the coconut oil is, and the bronze shimmer adds a subtle glow that works for everyday.”
