August 2021 Glam Bag Plus Spoilers

Ipsters who signed up for a Glam Bag Plus in August could receive the following:

ELEMIS Skin Buff

1. ELEMIS Skin Buff

On the other hand, if you’re comfortably seated on the skincare-only train, you’ll love this radiance-enhancing exfoliator from ELEMIS. Using fine hop granula and bilberry and chamomile extracts, this gentle formula smooths away dry and dull skin cells to reveal the brightness hiding underneath. Use this product to support natural cell turnover and leave you with your best skin yet—perfect for rocking no makeup at all, or for creating a smooth base for makeup application.

FLORENCE BY MILLS Tint n Tame Brow Gel

2. FLORENCE BY MILLS Tint n Tame Brow Gel

Natural, full-looking brows for summer? It’s a vibe. Just swipe on this sculpting gel for a tint that helps fill in any patchy spots with its micro-fine brush. In a matter of seconds your brow hairs will be tamed, smoothed, and set in place all day. Pro tip: You’ll want this gel in your arsenal to achieve that iconic feathered brow look.



Freckles are the undeniable stamp of summer. So it’s not surprising that many of us love to sport them year-round, giving our makeup looks the breezy, easygoing feel that we typically associate with all the sunshine and warmer weather. The veritable OG of the faux-freckle hype is FRECK BEAUTY Freck OG, which boasts one of the most natural and longest-lasting faux freckles on the market. Just lightly apply it as a cluster of dots, allowing the formula to sit and develop on your skin. Add as much (or as little) as you’re feeling that day.

TARTE Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara 4-in-1 Mascara Full

4. TARTE Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara 4-in-1 Mascara Full

Ask a group of beauty lovers what their favorite mascara is, and chances are that at least one will name this mascara from TARTE. Described as a “push-up bra for your lashes,” this four-in-one formula lengthens, curls, volumizes, and conditions your lashes with each dramatic swipe. If you haven’t tried this cult classic yet, now’s your chance!

STUDIOMAKEUP Flawless Skin Foundation

5. STUDIOMAKEUP Flawless Skin Foundation

Light-to-medium coverage with a lit-from-within-glow—what could be better? Oh, we know: added hyaluronic acid. This star ingredient locks in moisture so that your complexion looks more plump, while tiny reflective pigments add to the radiance of your skin. This foundation earns its “flawless” name.

MURAD Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum

6. MURAD Sensitive Skin Soothing Serum

Although dry, irritated skin is often associated with winter, the truth is that extra time in the summer sun can result in the same unhappy complexion. Thankfully, this hydrating serum from MURAD is here to restore much-needed moisture to your skin (especially if you’re suffering from sunburns!). The secret? Hyaluronic acid, which supports your skin’s moisture retention, and chamomile and arnica, which soothe and improve suppleness.

THRIVE CAUSEMETICS Glossy Lip Hydrating Serum™ in Ruth

7. THRIVE CAUSEMETICS Glossy Lip Hydrating Serum™ in Ruth

Allow us to introduce you to your favorite lip gloss for summer. Formulated like a hydrating serum, this gloss packs the intensity of a lipstick with the high-shine luminosity of a gloss—and the result is a shimmery taupe that you’ll want to reapply over and over again (even though it lasts so long on your lips that you won’t even need to!). Pair it with a bright summer look, and you’ll love it even more.

VISEART Petit Pro 3

8. VISEART Petit Pro 3

Here’s a palette that’ll transition seamlessly into any new season with you. From shimmery pinks to deep greens, this palette is filled with eight shades of versatile matte, satin, and shimmer textures that are inspired by French gardens in the spring. You can create a bold colorful eyeshadow look or something more neutral—it’s all possible with this palette.

SÖNAGE SKINCARE C Shield Smart Serum

9. SÖNAGE SKINCARE C Shield Smart Serum

Our morning routines just wouldn’t be complete with vitamin C (and SPF, of course!). This lightweight serum works to shield your skin from signs of aging, fade the appearance of dark spots, and make your skin look more radiant overall. We love to apply this one to our necks and the tops of our hands for an extra burst of brightening power.

CONTEXT SKIN Nail Lacquer Duo in Piece of Me & The Last Mile

10. CONTEXT SKIN Nail Lacquer Duo in Piece of Me & The Last Mile

Helloooo, neutral dreaminess. These two vegan, cruelty-free, non-toxic, and 5-free shades from CONTEXT SKIN pair beautifully with a day at the office, Sunday brunch, and everything in between, so we consider them two must-haves for any nail polish collection.
