IPSY Beauty Editors Share Their Favorite Products From September’s Glam Bags


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.

Want to know what IPSY beauty editors are coveting this month? Here are all the products we’re crossing our fingers we get in our own September Glam Bags (and stealing from work if we don’t).

Pia Bhattacharya, Senior Beauty Editor

1. BANILA CO Clean It Zero Pore Clarifying Cleansing Balm

BANILA CO Clean It Zero Pore Clarifying Cleansing Balm

“To say I’m obsessed with cleansing balms would be an understatement—especially when it comes to this one. It feels just like sherbet and transforms into a light oil that gets every bit of makeup and dirt away without clogging your pores. Try it, it’ll make your cleansing routine sooo satisfying.”

2. ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Matte Lipstick Mini Dead Roses

ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS Matte Lipstick Mini Dead Roses

“This blush mauve shade has become the MVP of my lipstick collection. I keep it handy to swipe on for last minute Zoom meetings and it instantly makes me feel pulled together. It’s so moisturizing, so I don’t have to worry about swiping on balm before I apply and the color goes with just about everything.”

3. CIATÉ LONDON Wonderwand Mascara in Black Magic

CIATÉ LONDON Wonderwand Mascara in Black Magic

“Probably the most volumizing, lengthening, lash-lifting mascara in my stash. I reach for this time and time again when I want to add drama to my look. Plus, it lasts all day without flaking off. My eyes can be sensitive, and this stuff is comfy to wear and really works.”

Hannah Cassidy, Senior Beauty Editor

1. TATCHA The Rice Wash

TATCHA The Rice Wash

“I’m usually wary of foamy face washes out of fear that they’ll be a bit harsh for my sensi skin, but this cream-to-foam cleanser is as gentle as they come. The lightweight formula is pH neutral (a must for my delicate barrier) and super hydrating, so my skin feels clean and soft—never itchy or tight.”

2. IT COSMETICS Confidence in a Gel Lotion Moisturizer

IT COSMETICS Confidence in a Gel Lotion Moisturizer

“Living in a desert climate, I need alllll the moisture I can get to keep my skin from drying up like a raisin. This has quickly become my summer go-to thanks to a potent combo of soothing ceramides and glycerin to help my skin retain moisture for up to 72 (!!) hours. Game. Changer.”



“Milk...as a fragrance? Yep, and it’s *so* good. This gourmand scent is sweet (but not sickly), woodsy (but not overpowering), and second skin-like—all thanks to notes of marshmallow, mahogany, and musk. I can’t stop sniffing this!”

Maddie Aberman, Senior Beauty Editor

1. SOPHIA + MABELLE Wet Blush in Bubbly

SOPHIA + MABELLE Wet Blush in Bubbly

“I’m a big blush girl, but I’ve never tried anything quite like this powder-to-cream formula. It has this unique texture that magically feels wet when you apply it, and it melts right into your cheeks, giving an almost watercolor blush effect. I’m so obsessed!”



“I’m all for a multi-tasker, but mega hydration and anti-aging retinol at night are non-negotiables, which is why I was so psyched about this do-it-all cream. It has everything I want in a night cream in one easy step. I swear I can already see a difference in the overall clarity and texture of my skin.”

3. NATURELAB. TOKYO Perfect Shine Clarifying Scalp Scrub

NATURELAB. TOKYO Perfect Shine Clarifying Scalp Scrub

“I’ll be the first to admit I probably overdo it with dry shampoo, but what can I say? I just can’t quit the extended time between wash days and the effortless volume it offers. But ever since I discovered this scalp scrub in my Glam Bag, I feel less bad about my dry shampoo addiction. This stuff gets rid of all the build-up and gunk on my scalp and feels a fresh start after every use.”
