First, the curator reveal: The August Glam Bag X will be curated by Halsey.
You already know Ashley Frangipane as the ultimate beauty chameleon, even if you don’t realize it. That’s because you probably recognize Ashley by her stage name: Halsey. Yes, that Halsey. She’s most known as an award-winning musical artist, but a closer runner-up is her ever-evolving beauty. She’s rocked glitter tears on an album cover, a cobalt lip on the red carpet, and more iconic eyeliner looks than we can count—and what’s even more impressive is that she does it all herself.
“It started out of necessity,” says Halsey. “I was a very small artist signed to an indie label that didn’t have a budget for glam.” Now she sees her makeup artistry as one of her greatest gifts: “It has given me the opportunity to center myself before performances and take my identity into my own hands.” It has even led to the launch of her own makeup line, about-face, earlier this year.
Here at IPSY, we’re all about helping you express your unique beauty, so who better to help spread that message of individuality and creativity than Halsey? Which is exactly why we tapped her to curate our August Glam Bag X collection. Introducing Glam Bag x Halsey.
"I am so excited to share my Glam Bag X collection," she adds. “I’ve been a makeup junkie since I was a teenager, always grabbing and experimenting with whatever product I could get my hands on. So I've tried it all; drugstore to designer, neutral and natural to experimental and avant-garde. I took this mix and match approach curating my Glam Bag X collection, so I can confidently say there’s something in it for everyone. You can do your basic glow, everyday face, take really amazing care of your skin, and you can play up your adventurous side experimenting with high-impact color.”
This collection brings you into Halsey’s world with products she hand-picked. You’ll receive five of Halsey’s favorites, plus you get to also choose three from a personalized assortment. In total, you’ll receive eight full-size products worth up to $500. “I hope the mix of everyday staples and vibrant pops of color empower you to unleash your inner artist and take a few risks,” says Halsey.
Ipsy has also shared this bag's first two spoilers. Your August 2021 bag may include:
Fenty Beauty Full Frontal Volume, Lift & Curl Mascara in Cuz I’m Black ($24 value)
Whether you’re performing on a stage like Halsey or giving a presentation on Zoom, this mascara has got you covered. The innovative brush lifts, curls, defines, and separates for a lash look that won’t smudge or smear for hours. “I love that it’s super buildable, so if you just want a light coat that looks really natural, you can get that,” says Halsey. “But if you love a dramatic lash, then all it takes is a couple coats to get there.” Even better: Everyone getting the Glam Bag x Halsey drop will receive this mascara.
Tatcha The Silk Canvas Filter Finish Protective Primer ($52 value)
One of the most important beauty lessons Halsey has learned from her years in the spotlight: the power of primer. This one from TATCHA is a favorite thanks to blurring silk extract, mattifying silk powder, and a velvety texture that grips foundation for all-day wear. “I love this product because it makes my makeup last longer while giving me a natural, more even-toned look,” she says.
