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 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 October 2021 Glam Bag Plus.

Tiffany Tse, Editorial Director

1. Choice: KATE SOMERVILLE® Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream

KATE SOMERVILLE® Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream

“Legend has it that bathing in goat’s milk was the secret to Cleopatra’s radiant complexion. The next best thing? Kate Somerville’s intensely hydrating cream with goat’s milk powder—a natural, vitamin-packed emollient that helps to soothe my dry skin and reduce any redness.”

2. Add-On: WANDER BEAUTY Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks

WANDER BEAUTY Baggage Claim Gold Eye Masks

“My puffy under-eye bags often betray my late-night TikTok binges, so these delightful gilded patches are a life-saver. Powered by soothing aloe leaf and calendula extracts, as well as an array of peptides and amino acids, they leave my skin plumped, brightened, and dewy.”

3. UVÉ BEAUTY Makeup Blender Trio

UVÉ BEAUTY Makeup Blender Trio

“UVé Beauty’s supremely soft, vegan makeup sponges are putting my usual brushes out of work. In non-toxic colors that brighten my vanity, these blenders offer a flawless finish. Plus, they’re crafted from mold-resistant, bacteria-preventing foam—because only makeup should go on your face!”

Pia Bhattacharya, Senior Beauty Editor

1. Choice: GO-TO SKINCARE The Removalist

GO-TO SKINCARE The Removalist

“Even this product’s name sounds hardworking. And trust me, it is. This kaolin clay mask gets rid of dirt, excess oils, dead skin cells that dull my glow—all without stripping away moisture. That tight, dry feeling some masks give you? Not here. I use it whenever I need to hit refresh and reset on my skin. Just love it.”

2. Add-On: HERBIVORE BOTANICALS Lapis Blue Tansy Face Oil

HERBIVORE BOTANICALS Lapis Blue Tansy Face Oil

“I’ll admit I wanted this buzzy oil because it’s gorgeous and looks like a little gem. But after using it a few times, I realized what all the hype is about. It’s great for acne-prone skin, plus it helps balance, soothe irritation, and hydrate without feeling greasy. It’s the perfect little indulgence for my skin.”

3. IL MAKIAGE Icon High Volume & Intense Curl Mascara

IL MAKIAGE Icon High Volume & Intense Curl Mascara

“When it comes to mascara, it’s all about the wand for me. This one has a unique, football shape that grabs onto every lash to add major length and curl. I love how quickly it takes my lashes from meh to amazing. It also dries quickly but doesn’t harden, so your lashes stay flexible and won’t flake on you.”

Hannah Cassidy, Senior Beauty Editor

1. Choice: RÓEN BEAUTY CAKE Mascara in Black

RÓEN BEAUTY CAKE Mascara in Black

“Don’t be fooled by the name of this mascara—there is zero caking or clumping here. The fluffy brush and conditioning, jet-black formula plumps up my baby blonde lashes for a falsie-like effect in two swipes flat.”

2. Add-On: THEN I MET YOU Calming Tide Gel Cream™

THEN I MET YOU Calming Tide Gel Cream™

“A year-round holy grail for me. This soothing moisturizer was within arms length all summer long and always kept my irritation-prone complexion calm and happy. Now that temps are dipping, the serum-like consistency adds a supercharged layer of hydration underneath my heavier creams.”

3. JECCA BLAC Play Pots in Gold Touch

JECCA BLAC Play Pots in Gold Touch

“Pigmented? Check. Easy to use? Check. If you’ve been searching for the perfect cream shadow, this baby is your literal pot of gold. It can be used with fingers (if you’re lazy like me), applied with brushes for a defined look, or as a primer to pack on powders.”

Maddie Aberman, Senior Beauty Editor

1. Choice: ABOUT-FACE BY HALSEY Light Lock Lip Gloss in PAYTON

ABOUT-FACE BY HALSEY Light Lock Lip Gloss in PAYTON

“Name a beautiful lip gloss...I’ll wait. This sheer bronzy-pink shade magically goes with whatever makeup I’m wearing for the day, but what I’m even more obsessed with is the texture. It feels more like a liquid lip balm than a sticky gloss, which means it now officially lives rent-free in my purse.”

2. Add-On: 111SKIN Vitamin C Brightening Booster Serum

111SKIN Vitamin C Brightening Booster Serum

“Vitamin C is a staple in my everyday skincare routine, so when I saw this vitamin C serum from such a trusted skincare brand pop up on my add-on options, I did a little happy dance. So far, I’m loving the brightening effects, and I know it’ll only get better with continued use.”

3. TARTE SUGAR RUSH™ Easy On The Eyes Clay Liner in Bronze

TARTE SUGAR RUSH™ Easy On The Eyes Clay Liner in Bronze

“What first drew me to this liner (lol, pun intended!) was the beautiful bronze shade. It was such a fun take on my typical brown liners but still wearable enough for everyday. But what kept me coming back was the smudge-proof, budge-proof, everything-proof finish that lasted from 8 a.m. application until I washed my face at 11 p.m. BTW, I’m sure it would have lasted longer, but it was definitely my bedtime.”
