It Wasn't Easy, but We Picked the Best New Beauty Products Hitting Sephora This Spring
Does it feel like it's been Winter for approximately forever, or is that just us? In between wondering if our Spring dresses will ever see the light of day and getting so excited for beach weather, we're also on high alert for this season's makeup trends and fresh hairstyles to test out, too.
Because we simply could not wait any longer, we already looked into the newest beauty products to hit Sephora's shelves to get ready for March 20 — and there are are so many new things that we're definitely ready to shop.
Ready, set, go Spring shopping at Sephora with the best new products ahead.
Supergoop! Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40
If your answer to "Would you like some shimmer with that?" is always a resounding "Heck yeah," the new Supergoop! Glowscreen Sunscreen SPF 40 ($36) is the sun-blocking primer of your daydreams. Yes, it still packs hydrating hyaluronic acid, vitamin B5, and sea lavender, but now there's a pearlescent finish so you get an all-over glow as your skin's protected from UV rays.
Viseart Paris Edit Eye Shadow Palette
Ahh, springtime in Paris . . . or, in this case, the Viseart Paris Edit Eye Shadow Palette ($39) that's new this Spring. It's like a bouquet of flowers, but the 12 romantic colors are actually matte, shimmery, and satiny shadows that look pretty right on your face. Plus, even though it's inspired by colors in the larger Paris palette, its smaller size makes it that much easier to take with you if your plans include an actual trip to the City of Love.
Drybar The Manhattan Glass Hair Kit
The new Sephora-exclusive Drybar The Manhattan Glass Hair Kit ($165) is an all-in-one set for the sleekest styles possible. Not only is there a paddle brush and flat iron to get hair superstraight (with two sprays to protect looks before and after), it also includes samples of the brand's new Liquid Gloss Smoothing Shampoo ($26) and Smoothing Conditioner ($26) that launched in early 2020.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Glow Away Bronzing Coconut Body Stick
If you're already ready to pack away your Winter coat and grab a bikini, this new Marc Jacobs Beauty Glow Away Bronzing Coconut Body Stick ($39) can fake that glow until the sun actually comes. Just brush it on to treat your skin to nutrients from five forms of coconut, and brush off questions about if you just returned from an island vacation.
Cinema Secrets Brush and Makeup Cleansing Bundle
Make a fresh start in the new season and Spring clean your makeup brushes with this Cinema Secrets Brush and Makeup Cleansing Bundle ($18). Not only is there a cleanser to get brushes build-up- and bacteria-free, there's also an oil-free sanitizing spray that does the same thing when you spritz it right on your makeup.
Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Balm Lip Set
As long as there are still bags, pockets, and vanities with room to spare, there won't be such a thing as too much lip balm. And, when you see a kit that's offering a deal like this Sephora Favorites Give Me Some Balm Lip Set ($29), we're pretty sure you'll agree. Valued at $89 (if you bought each of the five products separately), this kit includes lip treatments from Pat McGrath Labs, Fresh, Tarte, Jouer Cosmetics, and Too Faced.
Prima Bath Gem Effervescent CBD Mineral Soak For Relaxation and Recovery
Does your self-care routine need a little something new? This just-arrived Prima Bath Gem Effervescent CBD Mineral Soak For Relaxation and Recovery ($16) comes to the rescue with soothing epsom salt, moisturizing oils, and broad-spectrum hemp extract to balance out the skin, too. Ahhhh.
IGK Offline 3-Minute Hydration Hair Mask
Welcome Winter-weary hair into Spring with the new IGK Offline 3-Minute Hydration Hair Mask ($38), rich in hydrating turmeric butter and shine-inducing green tea seed oil. It brings dry, damaged styles back to their very best, while also smoothing out hair and locking in color.
Benefit Cosmetics Cheeks Stars Reunion Tour: Blush, Bronzer, and Highlighter Palette
The band's back together again, but this band is Benefit's most popular blushes, bronzers, and highlighters. The new Benefit Cosmetics Cheeks Stars Reunion Tour: Blush, Bronzer, and Highlighter Palette ($30-$60) has newly updated versions of the Georgia, Dallas, and Sugarbomb blushes, along with the golden Cookie highlighter and (of course) the bestselling Hoola bronzer. If that sounds like a symphony of color you're down for, there's also a smaller version with the bronzer and two blushes for on-the-go looks.
Summer Fridays Super Amino Gel Cleanser
Fans of Summer Fridays will be happy to know this popular skincare brand just came out with its first cleanser: the Super Amino Gel Cleanser ($38). The gentle gel face wash features 11 amino acids added to mineral-rich sea water so makeup and dirt is whisked away and skin is left nourished, protected, and pH-balanced afterwards.
Kosas Revealer Concealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer
Kosas Revealer Concealer Super Creamy + Brightening Concealer ($28) not only covers up dark spots, it also features caffeine and peptides to plump and brighten the undereye area in particular. It's the brand's very first concealer, and the clean ingredients and dewy finish make it well worth the wait.
Kora Organics Noni Night AHA Resurfacing Serum
Kora Organics Noni Night AHA Resurfacing Serum ($72) launched in February and has already racked up thousands of loves from other Sephora shoppers. This certified organic night treatment highlights natural AHAs like brightening lemon peel and natural BHAs like exfoliating willow bark extract so skin's tone and texture looks so fresh come morning.
Ouai Shampoo For Fine Hair
The new Ouai shampoo and conditioners at Sephora help all types of textures. There's the Ouai Shampoo For Fine Hair ($28-$56) that's rich in chia seed oil to help thicken fine hair and boost volume (with biotin to keep it strong). There's also an accompanying Ouai Conditioner For Fine Hair ($28-$56) to add body during that step as well.
Ouai Shampoo For Thick Hair
The new Ouai Shampoo For Thick Hair ($28-$56) fights frizz and breakage in thick hair, whether it's curly or straight. There's marshmallow-root extract to detangle and highly nourishing avocado oil and shea butter to hydrate and protect. Plus, there's also a matching Ouai Conditioner For Thick Hair ($28-$56) for extra tackling of tangles.
Ouai Shampoo For Medium Hair
For hair that falls somewhere in between, the new Ouai Shampoo For Medium Hair ($28-$56) and Ouai Conditioner For Medium Hair ($28-$56) gets it just right Goldilocks-style by nourishing without adding too little or too much volume. There's shine-boosting kumquat fruit extract, hydrating babassu oil, and strengthening coconut oil to get the job done.
The Ordinary Pycnogenol 5%
While you may not have heard of the main ingredient before, The Ordinary Pycnogenol 5% ($10) is a new serum that boosts natural hydration and firmness in your face. It's worth adding this to your skincare vocabulary as pycnogenol — an extract from the bark of French maritime pine trees — protects skin's natural collagen and elastin so your complexion stays nurtured and supple.
Innisfree Daily UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 36
The changing of seasons is just an extra reason to think about sun exposure. After all, there could be more skin peeking out once the weather warms, and this new Innisfree Daily UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 36 ($15) protects and soothes that with popular K-beauty ingredients like cica and green tea.
The Inkey List Oat Cleansing Balm
Oat is commonly found in products meant to soothe sensitive complexions, and the new The Inkey List Oat Cleansing Balm ($10) brings that right into a face wash as it handily washes away makeup and excess oil without stripping your skin or aggravating it any further. (You have the redness-reducing colloidal oatmeal and oat kernel oil that supports your natural moisture barrier to thank for that.)
Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Fluid Powder Foundation SPF 20
This Bobbi Brown Skin Long-Wear Fluid Powder Foundation SPF 20 ($40) is the brand's first liquid-to-powder foundation, ideal for anyone who wants a powder-like soft-matte finish without adding an actual separate powder foundation. It features proteins to keep skin looking smooth, and it will both absorb your skin's excess oil and keep it protected from blue light, too.
Caudalie Vinosculpt Lift and Firm Body Cream
Treat still-dry Winter skin to the new Caudalie Vinosculpt Lift and Firm Body Cream ($45) and it will be well-nurtured come Spring. This whipped lotion takes on any loss of elasticity or firmness in your skin, while grapes also do their part to offer antioxidants and hydration all over your body.
