30 New Beauty Products You Need to Snap Up This Summer
So you've shopped and hoarded all of Spring's best beauty swag . . . but like all product fanatics, the only question on your mind is "what's next?" The answer to that: drool-worthy newness. As beauty editors, we get a sneak peek at all launches before they hit shelves, and we're sharing the greatest, most exciting stuff with you. Whether you'd like to enhance your Summer glow with a chic designer bronzer or strobe while hydrating your complexion, read on — there are lots of pretty products in store.
Glossier Flavored Balm Dotcom Trio
The product: Glossier Flavored Balm Dotcom Trio ($30)
Why we want it: We keep a tube of the original Balm Dotcom in every bag, so adding these sweet treats into our rotation is a must. Our favorite is the rose, which has a sweet, dessert-like aroma (not a powdery floral one) and a subtle pink tint, but they're all incredible. The cherry's red hue gives off a "just-ate-a-popsicle" vibe, and you'll definitely catch your man stealing the clear, zingy mint formula from you!
Maybelline Master Strobing Stick Illuminating Highlighter
The product: Maybelline Master Strobing Stick Illuminating Highlighter ($10)
Why we want it: This ultracreamy, pigmented formula easily glides onto cheekbones, the clavicle, and décolleté to add a luminous glow to skin. Instead of feeling greasy (like many other stick illuminators), the pearl-infused product dries to a more powdery, blendable finish. Available in two shades.
When to get it: July 2016
Bed Head by TIGI Fully Loaded Volumizing Conditioning Jelly
The product: Bed Head by TIGI Fully Loaded Volumizing Conditioning Jelly ($17)
Why we want it: Each tube is packed with fiber technology that soaks into skinny strands. The end result is thick, healthy, voluminous hair that smells like candy!
Yves Saint Laurent Les Sahariennes Bronzing Stones Sun-Kissed Glow Creator
The product: Yves Saint Laurent Les Sahariennes Bronzing Stones Sun-Kissed Glow Creator ($55)
Why we want it: You'll want to get your glow on in public because the gold-wrapped, logo-embossed compact is so chic. Each of the three shades is paired with a large brush in a velvet pouch. The formula has hints of red, not orange, so your faux tan will make you appear as if you just stepped off the beach . . . instead of a clementine.
L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask — Exfoliate and Refine Pores
The product: L'Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Mask — Exfoliate and Refine Pores ($13)
Why we want it: This mask feels like a spa experience, but for a fraction of the price. It's infused with three purifying clays (kaolinite, montmorillonite, and ghassoul) and red algae, which unclogs congested pores and refines rough skin texture. Try it as part of a multimasking ritual during your weekend Netflix binge.
When to get it: July 2016
The Body Shop British Rose Exfoliating Gel Body Scrub
The product: The Body Shop British Rose Exfoliating Gel Body Scrub ($24)
Why we want it: Many rose-infused formulas can smell a bit old-fashioned, but not this body scrub. The refreshing, lightweight aroma comes courtesy of handpicked roses from a sustainable British farm. Crushed walnut shells slough off dead skin cells, revealing a healthy, vibrant glow.
Glamglow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer
The product: Glamglow Glowstarter Mega Illuminating Moisturizer ($49)
Why we want it: Summer comes with a caveat: the less makeup you apply, the happier your skin will be (and the more sweatproof your routine is). Thanks to this moisturizer, though, you can hydrate your complexion and strobe it in one step. The cream smells like a creamsicle cocktail and is loaded with tiny, glimmering particles that add a sexy glow to your complexion. Add a bit extra on your cheekbones and cupid's bow on a night out.
Touch In Sol Chroma Powder Lip Tint
The product: Touch In Sol Chroma Powder Lip Tint ($20)
Why we want it: This is the coolest lip stain you've ever tried — literally! Not only is the formula in powder form, but it also adds a cooling sensation to your pucker when you apply. While we suggest pairing it with a lip liner to ensure it wears evenly, you'll get hours of wear out of this tint. It's available in eight punchy hues, including a neon pink and an electric coral.
Task Essential O2 Soothing Oxygen Spray
The product: Task Essential O2 Soothing Oxygen Spray ($18)
Why we want it: After a sweaty Summer day, few things are as refreshing as a facial mist. We like to keep this glacial water spray in the refrigerator for an extra burst of cool. The formula also includes rare snow algae and edelweiss to defend your skin against free radicals.
When to get it: June 2016
Golden Door Soothing Toner
The product: Golden Door Soothing Toner ($64)
Why we want it: This alcohol-free toner thoroughly removes any excess dirt after cleansing without stripping your skin. It contains soothing cucumber and nettle extract, which tightens and tones your complexion. While you're doing good for your skin, you'll also give back to the community: 100 percent of the proceeds of this product go to charities that help children, including The "I Have a Dream" Foundation.
Chantecaille Mermaid Eye Color
The product: Chantecaille Mermaid Eye Color ($34)
Why we want it: This cushy, creamy shadow is creaseproof (essential in the Summer!) and is infused with an antiaging silk extract that leaves your delicate lids firmer and more lifted. Try Lagoon, a turquoise shade, on your lower lashline for a flash of color.
CND Creative Play Nail Lacquer
The product: CND Creative Play Nail Lacquer ($8, visit CND.com for salons near you)
Why we want it: This line of polishes boasts 80 shades and a wide variety of finishes and textures, including Got A Light?, this glitter-packed hue. The brush features nearly 400 bristles to ensure your lacquer goes on smoothly and evenly with every application.
Osmotics Cosmeceuticals Blue Copper 5 Prime Volumizing Shampoo
The product: Osmotics Cosmeceuticals Blue Copper 5 Prime Volumizing Shampoo ($28)
Why we want it: The mistake that many women make when treating hair loss is that they don't select a regimen that focuses on the scalp. This shampoo is naturally bright blue because it is loaded with copper peptides. This essential ingredient focuses on scalp health, scrubbing away sebum buildup to nourish hair follicles. Use it consistently to see thicker, stronger strands.
Giorgio Armani Sun di Gioia Eau de Parfum
The product: Giorgio Armani Sun di Gioia Eau de Parfum ($70)
Why we want it: We love how this bottle feels in our hand when we spritz on the fragrance, but the scent is even more appealing than the packaging. The alluring notes of jasmine, vanilla, and frangipani make us want to jet-set to a remote island for a romantic getaway.
Color Wow Coconut Cocktail Bionic Tonic
The product: Color Wow Coconut Cocktail Bionic Tonic ($24)
Why we want it: Your hair is naturally coated with 18-MEA, a lipid that makes your strands shiny and smooth. However, chemical processing strips away that protective layer, which causes your mane to be rough, dry, and frizzy. This leave-in serum restores this vital 18-MEA back into your hair, along with deeply hydrating (and delicious smelling) coconut oil to add back gloss and softness.
Ardency Inn Modster Big Mascara
The product: Ardency Inn Modster Big Mascara ($25)
Why we want it: The inky formula is infused with hemp protein, which will immediately lengthen lashes as well as make them stronger, promoting volume and growth over time. Each brush is made with two kinds of bristles — one soft, one firm — to deposit generous amounts of pigment while carefully separating every lash.
Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream
The product: Drunk Elephant Lala Retro Whipped Cream ($60)
Why we want it: Despite the rich, creamy texture, this moisturizer won't weigh down your complexion. In fact, you'll immediately soak up the nourishing formula, so you'll see firmer skin (thanks, plantain extract!) almost immediately.
Good Dye Young in Riot!
The product: Good Dye Young in Riot! ($14)
Why we want it: Though many believe that rainbow hair is best left to the professionals, Paramore's Hayley Williams has proven that it's easy to safely DIY at home with her new line of dye. The formulas are thick and nourishing, and they act like a treatment mask while infusing strands with color.
When to get it: June 2016
GHD Serene Pearl Platinum Styler
The product: GHD Serene Pearl Platinum Styler ($249)
Why we want it: This is possibly the prettiest hot tool we've ever seen, not to mention the most efficient. The ultra-lightweight styler maintains a consistent temperature of 365 degrees, ensuring your strands are straightened, waved, or curled to perfection while maintaining health and shine. It also comes with a matching heat-resistant bag for traveling.
Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Soft Waves Sea Salt Spray
The product: Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Soft Waves Sea Salt Spray ($6)
Why we want it: It's rare to find a texturizing salt spray that doesn't leave your strands crunchy, but this formula provides that beachy, tousled look without the sticky side effects. Bonus: it smells like a banana daiquiri!
SimpleHuman Sensor Mirror Pro
The product: SimpleHuman Sensor Mirror Pro ($250)
Why we want it: This tricked-out tool can do so much more than your average vanity mirror. It's actually WiFi-enabled so you can pair it with an app, which allows you to adjust the lighting to your needs, making sure your makeup always looks on point. Whether you're trying to mimic the fluorescent bulbs of your office or the candlelit glow of your next dinner date, this mirror can do it — just capture the lighting on your phone and the app will do the rest. You won't need to keep the device plugged in, either. Just one charge keeps you set for a month! The motion detector will sense when you're in front of it and light up accordingly, so you won't waste any battery juice. It even comes with a bonus hypermagnified mirror, so you don't miss a single stray hair while tweezing.
Too Cool For School Pore Tightening Egg Cream Mask
The product: Too Cool For School Pore Tightening Egg Cream Mask ($6)
Why we want it: This superaffordable treatment is a fun take on the classic DIY egg white mask. The microfiber sheet is infused with albumen (egg white), which tightens enlarged pores, while yolk extract keeps skin hydrated and nourished.
Lorac Pro Palette 3
The product: Lorac Pro Palette 3 ($44)
Why we want it: Lorac's shadow palettes are cult favorites, and with good reason — though each pan is a powder formula, they're as creamy and richly pigmented as creams. This compact contains 16 wearable neutral shades with matte and shimmer finishes and is packaged with a miniature eyelid primer to ensure your shadow creation lasts all day.
Drybar Baby Buttercup Blow Dryer
The product: Drybar Baby Buttercup Blow Dryer ($135)
Why we want it: Let's be honest . . . most hotel blow dryers are about as effective as a paper fan, but when packing space is limited, we can't bring our own hot tools. This tiny, travel-size version of Drybar's bestselling blow dryer folds up into its own little "Full of Hot Air"-printed pouch, making it a breeze to tote on the go.
Elizabeth Arden Prevage City Smart Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Hydrating Shield
The product: Elizabeth Arden Prevage City Smart Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Hydrating Shield ($68)
Why we want it: Not only does this formula provide SPF 50 protection, but it also boasts powerful antioxidants (including idebenone, green tea, and ferulic acid) to defend skin from pollution and free radicals, keeping your complexion youthful.
Too Faced Sketch Marker Liquid Art Liner
The product: Too Faced Sketch Marker Liquid Art Liner ($20)
Why we want it: These felt-tipped eyeliners were inspired by Japanese calligraphy pens and work similarly, creating smooth, bold streaks with one easy swipe. The waterproof formula is available in 12 vibrant shades, perfect for rocking to music festivals and beach barbecues alike.
St. Tropez In-Shower Gradual Tan in Medium
The product: St. Tropez In-Shower Gradual Tan in Medium ($25)
Why we want it: St. Tropez revolutionized the self-tanner industry when it launched this genius in-shower product last year. We're even more obsessed with the new, darker formula than the original. It gives us that subtle, sun-kissed glow we crave after just one use! Just turn off the water during your shower, lather up, and rinse off after three minutes. Try using it several days in a row to build up your bronze.
Nars Cosmetics 413 BLKR Cheek & Lip Palette
The product: Nars Cosmetics 413 BLKR Cheek & Lip Palette ($59)
Why we want it: Low-maintenance doesn't have to mean boring! This palette contains everything a gal needs for a sexy date-night look this Summer — three blushes, Nars's iconic Laguna bronzer, and a vivid fuchsia lip that will make it hard to look away.
Jo Malone London Soap Collection
The product: Jo Malone London Soap Collection ($45)
Why we want it: We're stocking up on these cute soap quartets! The beautiful Marthe Armitage Summer Afternoon print makes them perfect housewarming gifts and last-minute birthday presents. Place one in a guest bathroom to make guests feel especially welcome, or keep them to yourself. We'll definitely stash a few of the fragrant bundles in our lingerie drawers . . .
La Mer The Cleansing Micellar Water
The product: La Mer The Cleansing Micellar Water ($90)
Why we want it: This fluid gently removes makeup, oil, and impurities without stripping skin (or requiring soap and water!). It's loaded with the brand's signature Miracle Broth, which contains active marine ingredients that renew and rejuvenate the complexion.
Available: July 2016
