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

0921-GB+-editors-picks-Thumbnail0921-GB+-editors-picks-Header

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 September 2021 Glam Bag Plus.

Pia Bhattacharya, Senior Beauty Editor

1. Choice: BEST FACE FORWARD Probiotic Blue Light Protection Cream

BEST FACE FORWARD Probiotic Blue Light Protection Cream

“Blue light damage is real, people. And with the amount of time I’ve spent working on my laptop, protecting my skin has become a full-time job. This lightweight cream soaks in for instant hydration, and thanks to microbiome-enriching probiotics, I know my skin’s protected during screen time.”

2. Add-On: PATRICK TA BEAUTY Monochrome Moment Velvet Blush in She’s Adorable

PATRICK TA BEAUTY Monochrome Moment Velvet Blush in She’s Adorable

“This blush will give you the glowy flush of your dreams. Promise. I love trying blushes, but this is one of the few I’ve actually bought for a second (maybe third?) time. The shade gives you a natural hit of warmth and builds up so nicely, plus it has a second-skin feel that makes it look so natural.”

3. SWEET CHEF Turmeric + Vitamin C Booster Eye Cream

SWEET CHEF Turmeric + Vitamin C Booster Eye Cream

“Give me turmeric everything—in my food, in my tea, and on my skin. The ingredient’s natural anti-inflammatory properties are good for you from head to toe. It’s in this eye cream that’s topped off with vitamin C to help reduce puffiness, brighten under eyes, and give you that fresh, awake feeling.”

Hannah Cassidy, Senior Beauty Editor

1. Choice: KOSAS Kosasport LipFuel Hyaluronic Lip Balm in Rush

KOSAS Kosasport LipFuel Hyaluronic Lip Balm in Rush

“Your-lips-but-better hint of color and tons of plumping hydration. As someone who has recently adopted a more minimalist beauty routine, KOSAS has been a consistent source of holy grails and this balm is the perfect addition.”

2. Add-On: VANITY PLANET Revive Facial Ice Roller

VANITY PLANET Revive Facial Ice Roller

“This. Feels. So. Good. I love a good facial massage to help with lymphatic drainage and puffiness, but add a little cold therapy in the mix and you’ve got yourself a certified heavenly experience. Summer in LA kicks into high gear (aka 100-degree temps) in September, so I’ll be stashing this roller in the freezer all month.”

3. UOMA Afro.Dis.Iac Liquid Eyeliner in Blackety Black Y'All

UOMA Afro.Dis.Iac Liquid Eyeliner in Blackety Black Y'All

“If you have oily eyelids like me, you *need* this liner in your kit. The ultra pigmented, budge-proof formula keeps my kitten wings in place without smearing, smudging, or transferring—all despite being the proud owner of eyelid oil slicks. Pro tip: Store the pen upside down to keep the felt tip liner from drying out!”

Maddie Aberman, Senior Beauty Editor

1. Choice: FOXYBAE 12-In-1 Magic Daily Leave in Hair Mask

FOXYBAE 12-In-1 Magic Daily Leave in Hair Mask

“The second I saw this hair mask pop up as an option during Ultra Personalization, it’s like every other product on the screen disappeared. It was love at first sight. That might sound a little dramatic, but if you saw the shiny, smooth, soft way this stuff left my hair, you wouldn’t think so. I think we will have a very happy life together, and I will 100 percent be repurchasing when it runs out.”

2. Add-On: IT COSMETICS Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara Mini

IT COSMETICS Superhero Elastic Stretch Volumizing Mascara Mini

“Lengthening doesn’t even begin to cover the benefits of this mascara (although it’s pretty fire at that). It gives the prettiest, non-clumpy volume and definition, too. Want more of an impact? It’s like the formula was made for layering. Just swipe on another coat or two to up the effect.”

3. VEGAN BY HAPPY SKIN ORIGINAL SKIN ESSENCE TONER

VEGAN BY HAPPY SKIN ORIGINAL SKIN ESSENCE TONER

“I haven’t regularly used a toner since seventh grade… until now. This feels like a mix between a hydrating serum and a cleansing toner. I use it right after I wash my face and before the rest of my skincare routine. I feel like the rest of my products work better with the addition of this toner, and my skin definitely feels better.”
