20 New Beauty Launches You Need in Your Stash This Summer
As warm weather approaches, we're packing up our sweaters and heavy coats and swapping them for our sundresses and shorts. But just like we're a little bored of last year's Summer styles, we're yearning to add new beauty swag to this season's stash. Thankfully, there's plenty of fabulous new launches to choose from! From a coconut oil self-tanning balm to an at-home dip powder gel set, keep reading to see everything we'll be stocking up on for Summer 2017.
Drybar Detox Whipped Dry Shampoo Foam
What it is: Drybar Detox Whipped Dry Shampoo Foam ($24)
Why you need it: This mousse looks just like whipped cream, but when rubbed into greasy roots, it absorbs oil and vanishes without leaving behind any powdery or filmy residue. Even better, it features the brand's signature Blanc scent, which will make your newly cleansed strands smell like a yummy vanilla cupcake.
Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation
What it is: Covergirl Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation ($11)
Why you need it: Drugstore aisle wanderers, you've finally stumbled upon an impeccable, affordable full-coverage formula. This new product from Covergirl is oil-free and loaded with SPF 20 (but doesn't smell like sunscreen at all!) and features a hybrid radiant-matte finish so you won't look chalky. It's also infused with vitamins E, B3, and B5 to keep your skin hydrated and comes in 14 shades.
Diptyque Hourglass Diffuser
What it is: Diptyque Hourglass Diffuser ($175)
Why you need it: This revamped version of the brand's home scent device features a new diffusing technique, allowing even the most delicate notes to shine. But, of course, we're particularly drawn to the elegant and intricate new design. You can choose from six different scents, including D'Oranger Fleur (Orange Blossom) seen here, and each refill lasts up to three months.
Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner
What it is: Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner ($44)
Why you need it: This rose-petal-infused toner isn't just a hydrating treatment; it's the perfect product for your next stylized Instagram! The nourishing formula gently removes dirt, makeup, and oil while soothing the skin beneath, prepping it for serums and moisturizers. Plus, it smells just like a heady floral bouquet.
Rituals Express Your Soul Inspiring Verbena & Petitgrain Bed & Body Mist
What it is: Rituals Express Your Soul Inspiring Verbena & Petitgrain Bed & Body Mist ($25)
Why you need it: This zesty spritz smells as refreshing on pillowcases and linens as it does misted into the air. As weather gets warmer, we can anticipate spraying the floral citrus aroma even more frequently, but we currently use it at the office when that 4 p.m. slump hits.
IGK Prenup Instant Spray Hair Mask
What it is: IGK Prenup Instant Spray Hair Mask ($32)
Why you need it: This genius formula was inspired by the concept of Korean splash masks, which pack the deep hydration of a heavier mask into a lightweight liquid. You use this milky conditioning spray in the shower, then immediately rinse it out. Once you dry and style your strands, you'll notice that the reparative senna leaf extract, cupuacu butter, and nourishing amla oil penetrated your hair and left it soft, silky, and manageable. Bonus: it smells like a tropical vacation.
Botanics Radiant Youth Refining Microdermabrasion Polish
What it is: Botanics Radiant Youth Refining Microdermabrasion Polish ($10)
Why you need it: This gentle facial scrub is formulated with natural, sustainable ingredients that exfoliate away dull, dead skin cells and refine pores, leaving your complexion fresh and glowing. Its star ingredient is ginkgo extract, which adds radiance and powerfully protects against premature aging. Try using it once a week to see more youthful skin.
Ex Nihilo Ultra Rose Candle
What it is: Ex Nihilo Ultra Rose Candle ($75)
Why you need it: This chic candle fills the room with a luxurious (not stuffy!) rose aroma before it's even lit. Notes of lychee and patchouli add freshness and depth to the iconic rose de mai scent. We're lighting this one exclusively on romantic occasions.
Clairol Professionals Flare Me Hair Color
What it is: Clairol Professionals Flare Me Hair Color ($6)
Why you need it: This permanent rainbow dye leaves strands — not sheets — stained in any of seven fun and funky colors for up to five weeks. (Most shades like these fade after just a few shampoos!) Each tube comes with a clear mix-in that allows you to transform vivid hues to delicate pastels.
James Read Coconut Melting Tanning Balm
What it is: James Read Coconut Melting Tanning Balm ($35)
Why you need it: It looks — and smells — just like standard solidified coconut oil in the jar, but when applied to skin, it adds a gradual, natural glow (and serious hydration). We're already addicted to applying this to our legs, as it feels so silky postshave.
Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner
What it is: Kat Von D Everlasting Lip Liner ($18)
Why you need it: Designed to complement the brand's cult-favorite longwear liquid lipstick, these lip pencils come in 30 shades and won't budge for hours. The shades range from soft neutrals and glam reds to vampy tones and punchy vivids (even green), so you're bound to find your perfect match.
Tom Ford Clutch-Size Lip Balm
What it is: Tom Ford Clutch-Size Lip Balm ($36)
Why you need it: This precious lip balm adds effortless sophistication to your purse as well as your pout. It's pint-size, so it'll fit in even the smallest pouch and comes in six sheer, juicy shades.
Too Faced Hangover Rx 3-in-1 Replenishing Primer and Setting Spray
What it is: Too Faced Hangover Rx 3-in-1 Replenishing Primer and Setting Spray ($32)
Why you need it: Just like its primer predecessor, this mist is loaded with coconut water and antibiotics to add hydration and nourishment to your complexion. You can use it before makeup, after makeup, or midday — no matter when you mist it on, it'll keep your look locked down and your skin refreshed. (And yes, it smells like a coconut cocktail.)
Chapstick I Love Summer Collection — Peaches & Cream
What it is: Chapstick I Love Summer Collection — Peaches & Cream ($1)
Why you need it: Any self-professed lip-balm addict needs a tube of this in her beach bag. It smells just like fresh peaches, makes lips feel silky smooth, and is superaffordable.
Red Carpet Manicure Color Dip Starter Kit
What it is: Red Carpet Manicure Color Dip Starter Kit ($35)
Why you need it: This innovative new form of gel polish is likely the easiest manicure you'll ever DIY. Just paint on a base coat, dip your fingertip into the included powder, and seal with an activator lacquer and topcoat — that's it! No curing light is needed, because it hardens in under a minute, and your paint job will last for up to three weeks! This set includes everything you'll need, including a pale pink polish and remover.
IT Cosmetics Confidence in Your Glow Skin-Transforming Healthy Flush Blushing Bronzer
Why you need it: Swirl the highlighter, blush, and bronzer together or use them individually for a superflattering glow. The formula contains brightening vitamin C (and smells like oranges!), hydrating ceramides, and firming peptides to make your complexion look youthful every time you apply. It comes in three universal hues, but we're partial to Instant Natural Glow, a plummy bronze that gives us a flush like we spent an afternoon in the sun.
Cosrx Triple C Lightning Liquid
What it is: Cosrx Triple C Lightning Liquid ($27)
Why you need it: Soko Glam founder Charlotte Cho and K-beauty brand Cosrx teamed up to make this superpotent, nonsticky vitamin C serum, which is loaded with over 20 percent ascorbic acid to fade dark spots and illuminate your skin. Vitamin C serums need to be fresh to be effective, so this formula is produced in small batches and shipped directly from Korea to ensure you have a brand-new bottle.
Laura Geller Liquid Gelato Pillow Top Illuminator
What it is: Laura Geller Liquid Gelato Pillow Top Illuminator ($26)
Why you need it: The brand's beloved powder highlighter has been turned into a liquid! This formula is housed in a unique squeeze-tube package with a comfy cushion applicator that allows you to easily dab it on skin, whether you opt for a subtle sheen or a high beam.
Tocca Hair Fragrance
What it is: Tocca Hair Fragrance ($28)
Why you need it: These hair mists are infused with moisturizing oils as well as Tocca's classic feminine scents to add a light perfume and glossy sheen to strands. Our favorite is Cleopatra, which features notes of grapefruit, cassis, and patchouli.
