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 August 2021 Glam Bag Plus.

Pia Bhattacharya, Senior Beauty Editor

1. Choice: ORIGINS Ginzing™ Refreshing Eye Cream Brighten & Depuff On-The-Go

ORIGINS Ginzing™ Refreshing Eye Cream Brighten & Depuff On-The-Go

“I’ve been a fan of ORIGINS forever, so when a product comes across my desk, I must try it. I’m loving how refreshing this cream feels on my lids. It gives me that perfect zing on sleepy mornings, and the dose of vitamin C really helps brighten my under eyes up overall.”

2. COMPLEX CULTURE Cheek Chiseler Blush Brush

COMPLEX CULTURE Cheek Chiseler Blush Brush

“I’m pretty fussy when it comes to my blush brushes—any sign of patchyness or streakyness and they’re out of my rotation. This baby has become the hero of my brush stash. It blends so smoothly and makes it easy to build up color from subtle to wow.”

3. Add-On: HERO COSMETICS Mighty Patch Invisible+

HERO COSMETICS Mighty Patch Invisible+

“I crossed my heart and hoped random breakouts would end in my 30s. They didn’t. Having these magical patches around makes dealing with them so much less stressful. I just put one on and forget about it—it calms breakouts down in no time.”

Hannah Cassidy, Senior Beauty Editor

1. Choice: MURAD Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum

MURAD Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum

“With extra sun exposure and my usual weekly skin schedule of actives like benzoyl peroxide and retinol, adding a soothing serum into my routine has been clutch. The combo of chamomile and hyaluronic acid keeps my irritation at bay.”

2. GLOW RECIPE Watermelon Glow Lip Pop

GLOW RECIPE Watermelon Glow Lip Pop

“When I first read ‘scrub-to-balm formula’ I had no idea what to expect, but now I don’t know how I lived without it. Coconut sugar gently exfoliates before totally dissolving while nourishing oils leave my lips ultra soft—with a cute pink tint, too!”

3. Add-On: PAPA RECIPE Bombee Moist Sun Essence

PAPA RECIPE Bombee Moist Sun Essence

“Aesthetically pleasing (aka no greasy residue or white cast), soothing ingredients, and SPF 50+ broad spectrum protection? Sign. Me. Up. This sunscreen has been my go-to for the past month and I’ve definitely found a new favorite.”

Maddie Aberman, Beauty Editor

1. Choice: ACEOLOGY Overnight Lip Mask

ACEOLOGY Overnight Lip Mask

“Your other lip balms could never! This stuff is seriously amazing. I slather on a thick coat before bed, and I swear it’s still working its nourishing magic when I wake up after a restful eight hours (ok, more like six). It’s also amazing for a daytime lip self-care sesh. I keep a tube stashed near my desk, so I can treat myself as I work.”

2. SAINTS & SINNERS HAIR Velvet Divine Leave-In Conditioner

SAINTS & SINNERS HAIR Velvet Divine Leave-In Conditioner

“This luxe leave-in made me forget why I ever stopped using leave-in conditioners after the fish-shaped detangling bottles of my childhood. A few spritzes (seriously, like only a couple, this stuff is potent), leaves my hair feeling insanely soft and smooth. It even helps tame the frizz on my natural waves.”

3. Add-On: SUGAR COSMETICS Contour De Force Mini Blush in 02 Pink Pinnacle

SUGAR COSMETICS ​​Contour De Force Mini Blush in 02 Pink Pinnacle

“I will forever be a blush girl, and lately I’ve been reaching for this every morning. The rosy pink shade looks like it might be a lot on my fair skin, but it’s blendable and sheer enough to leave just the prettiest tint of color. And while there’s no noticeable shimmer in the formula, it gives the soft glow to my cheeks I typically expect from a cream formula only with the longwear of a powder.”
