10 New Beauty Products You Need To Try This Summer
With everything going on in the world lately, we’re not going to lie, beauty is our daily escape. So, we’re rounding up some of our current fave recently-released hair, skin, and makeup goodies.
From collagen-boosting beauty supplements and shaping pomades for edges, to superfood-packed moisturizers, eye creams, and hair masks, there’s a lot to get excited about this month. There’s also a new lip gloss collection from master makeup guru Scott Barnes, DIY toning drops that remove brassiness in blonde and silver hair, and a dissolving sheet mask pumped full of Hyaluronic Acid that primes your face for makeup. Pretty fun stuff.
Have a look through our 10 beauty obsessions below, then proceed to hit *add to cart*.
Turmeric has been hailed a secret brightening ingredient for centuries, but when this superfood merges with Vitamin C, lackluster skin doesn’t stand a chance. Ginger, niacinamide, and probiotics also team up for greatness in this mighty cream to banish under-eye bags, restore the skin’s microbiome, and hydrate the delicate eye area.
Pattern Edge Control, $12
Thank you Tracee Ellis Ross for bringing us Pattern, who not only keeps our hair in check but supports organizations that empower women of color at the same time. Her Edge Control pomade shapes baby hairs how you want them, adds mega shine to a slicked-back ‘do, and it easily layers for next-day hair maintenance – minus the dryness and flakies.
Scott Barnes Lip Fetish and Flossy Glossy, $26 (each)
When Jennifer Lopez’s makeup artist debuts not one, but two new lip lines, you take notice. Featuring 13 versatile shades in each collection, Lip Fetish is catered to those who desire a matte lip gloss, while Flossy Glossy offers a sleek, wet, lacquered look for the lips. PS: For the bride-to-be, Barnes created the ultimate J.Lo nude, and called it “Engagement,” as a special tribute to Jennifer.
Summer can summon clogged pores and oil spill skin whether you’re oily or not. Farmacy sets it straight, however, with this silicone-free daily moisturizer that’s powered by papaya extract to exfoliate, moringa seed extract (and moringa water) to remove skin pollutants, and four types of hyaluronic acid to deliver crazy moisture to your dermis.
Priming your skin for skincare? Yes, you should be doing this. This high-tech, two-piece, nanofibre face mask preps your visage to absorb maximum levels of hydration by dissolving when wet, thanks to low molecular hyaluronic acid. Simply apply your favorite moisturizer afterward and then you’re primed, sealed, dewy, and ready for that makeup beat. And let’s face it: a mask to help with the side effects from all the other masks we’re wearing lately doesn’t hurt.
Briogeo’s new superfoods hair mask has it all: fatty acid-rich avocado to nourish and condition parched summer strands, kiwi extract for antioxidant protection, and spinach, which is rich in flavonoids that are crucial for overall hair health. Slather it on, let it do its thing for five to 10 minutes, then try not to touch your silky tresses all day.
Meet the mascara wand of our dreams: LEGIT Lashes. This dual-ended brush allows you to achieve fringe to the sky length, long-lasting deep black color, and full fluffy volume. It also curls without clumping – hallelujah. Try Huda’s hack and use the “Volume” side first before layering on the “Curl & Length” side for envious lashes.
Blondies dealing with brassy tones – we feel you. Purple shampoos, conditioners, and masks are essential for dealing, but these new Toning Drops from IGK mix into any of your products to take this protective hair step to the next level. Did we mention Prickly Pear Cactus Extract makes your mane seriously soft? Into it.
This pretty, pigmented trio is like a party for your eyes, with shades that flatter everyone’s skin tone and eye color. Inspired by an oceanside sunset (don’t cha just love summer?), we can’t wait to sweep on these liquid gel-creams that produce maximum sparkle and minimal shimmer fall out.
Vital Proteins Beauty Capsule Collection ($30 each)
We love us some good-for-you supplements, and Vital Proteins just released four different capsules aimed at all the beauty goals: Beauty Boost, Skin Hydration, Radiance Boost, and Hair Boost. Made with plant-based ingredients, they promise to rev up collagen production for stronger hair and nails, increase skin elasticity and firmness, upgrade uneven, rough skin to a glow up, and infuse life back into brittle ends. Take two a day (or your preferred program) for the easiest beauty boost sans a 12-step routine.
