We have even more spoilers for the May 2021 Ipsy Glam Bag Plus! (FYI – choice time is tomorrow!)
Summer, is that you? Not quite, but all this sunshine is a signal that better days are coming, and we can’t deny that we feel major hope and excitement buzzing in the air. From reuniting with your favorite people to getting all dolled up with *somewhere* to go, get ready to thrive—and flex some dormant makeup muscles while you’re at it. What better way than by adding new products to your routine?
Enter: These Choice and Add-Ons products coming to Ultra Personalization, 5/2–5/3. Whether you choose them for your bag or shop them as Add-Ons (you can get up to 10!), your beauty will come alive with these fresh faves in your routine.
The bag this month:
The May Glam Bag Plus features a soft, lightweight microfiber material and nylon drawstrings, printed with this month’s signature peony illustration. The just-right shade of pink is the perfect pop of color to accompany a neutral palette of creamy whites, tans and camels, or gray.
And not only is the May Glam Bag Plus super chic, it’s incredibly versatile. “The pouch is totally reusable. I can carry it around as a wristlet, pop it inside of a larger bag, or reuse it as a gift bag by tying a cute bow with the drawstrings,” says Wong. Have an excess of unused beauty products laying around? Stash them in your Glam Bag Plus and stuff with tissue as an easy gift for your beauty-loving friends and fam. (P.S. Don’t forget! Mother’s Day is on May 9th.)
Here’s what you may be able to choose from in your Glam Bag Plus this month (FYI you can see May 2021 Ipsy Add-Ons spoilers here!)
COMPLEX CULTURE Letup Concealer
“Lately I’ve been skipping foundation, but I’ve found it tricky to find a concealer that blends into my bare skin seamlessly…until this magical one! It’s like a blend of makeup and skincare, leaves the ultimate skin-like finish that’s totally invisible, and blense like a dream.”
ABOUT-FACE Matte Fluid Eye Paint in Dionysus
“One look at this gorgeous, soft orchid color from Halsey’s debut beauty line and I was hooked. The best part? It’s an eye paint that you can wear on
DR. BRANDT SKINCARE pores no more® VACUUM CLEANER
The name says it all. This mask is enemy #1 for the stubborn clogs that just won’t budge with daily cleansing. It works to dislodge packed-in debris and purify pores for skin that instantly looks less oily and shiny.
CLEO+COCO Charcoal Deodorant in Grapefruit Bergamot
ICYMI, natural deodorants are the new thing. But if you’ve been putting off replacing your usual antiperspirant because you’re worried about that little thing called an underarm detox (y’know, when your body adjusts to an aluminum-free formula), you’re in luck: This award-winning formula CLEO+COCO banishes bad scents immediately with a zesty grapefruit scent and ingredients you can feel good about. It contains activated charcoal to cleanse your skin, magnesium-rich bentonite clay to remove impurities, and plant powders to absorb excess moisture.
VITABRID C12 Face Brightening Powder
By now, you know all about vitamin C in serums—but have you used a vitamin C powder? This genius product from VITABRID can be mixed with any of your favorite skincare formulas (like toner, serum, or moisturizer) to add an antioxidant boost of vitamin C. Just shake the bottle to loosen the powder, combine it with another product in the palm of your hand, then smooth your new concoction over your clean face and neck. Mind = blown, and skin = bright.
SHEA BRAND Raw Organic Shea Butter in Rose
When it comes to body moisturizers, it takes a lot to impress us. So the first time we tried this SHEA BRAND shea butter, we were shook. The shea butter in the formula is sustainably extracted, hand-whipped, then enriched with vitamin E. Just a few swipes envelops you in a nourishing, rose-scented blanket of hydration and healing that provides a protective barrier for your skin and lasts all day long. Self-care in shea butter form, amiright?
FENTY BEAUTY Flypencil Longwear Pencil Eyeliner in She a Problem, Grillz
FENTY BEAUTY comes out with hit after makeup hit, and we’re not mad at it. This creamy eye pencil is no exception: It’s long-lasting, creamy, super pigmented, and even water-resistant. Just twist up the retractable tip to glide on this rose gold shimmer shade, and your eye look will be poppin’ all day (no touch-ups needed!). The triangle shape of the pencil makes it easy to deposit pigment just where you want it.

KITSCH Velvet Scrunchies

ITEM BEAUTY Lip Quip in Come Thru
“It’s light, it’s juicy, it’s super hydrating, plus it’s got jojoba and almond oils, and shea butter that keep my lips soft and flake-free. If you’re looking for an everyday gloss that’s as nourishing as it is pretty, you’ve met your match.”
VITABRID C12 FACE Brightening Powder
“Where are my fellow vitamin C enthusiasts at? If you can’t get enough—give this powder a go. It’s a concentrated, potent dose of ascorbic acid that you mix into a serum or moisturizer. Because it’s in powder form, you know it’s fresh and ready to give you a serious glow up.”
