With mask mandates being cautiously rolled back around the country, it is time to make friends with your makeup kit again. Swap in the sweatpants for a siren red lipstick as we all look to make up for the missed getting-ready opportunities of the past two years. The beauty industry is only too glad to oblige, with a tempting array of new launches that will have you excited to dress up again. You heard it here first!
Anastasia Beverly Hills Satin Lipstick
Tired of that parched finish that comes from wearing a liquid matte for too long? Turn your attention to Anastasia Beverly Hills’ lineup of satiny soft formulas instead, with an array of Asia-specific shades to choose from: Cherry, Plum, Pomegranate, Rose and Lychee.
M.A.C Stack Mascara
You won’t just be frequenting M.A.C to stock up on your Ruby Woo lipsticks anymore—the brand’s newest offering is an inventive take on the classic mascara with a stackable set of brushes. Look to the mega brush for volumising upper lashes, while the micro brush offers greater precision and control when working on shorter, more sparse lashes. Best of both worlds, yes?
Sulwhasoo Iconic First Care Activating Serum Advanced
K-beauty is a gift that keeps on giving, and if you are looking to tap into their skincare secrets, it pays to take notes from one of the leading luxury names in the country. As one of its bestselling serums for two decades, the formula offers a masterful blend of herbs that work on the skin’s hydration, radiance and translucency. Smooth, glass-like skin is now yours.
Bath & Body Works Fairytale Collection
Give your bodycare routine a summery update with Bath & Body Works’ new lineup that seeks inspiration from adventures in lush woods—expect a luxurious blend of pomegranate nectar with fresh orange blossom underscored with vanilla and warm amber that promises love at first mist.
MyGlamm Ultimatte Long-Stay Matte Liquid Lipstick
Heavy-duty mattes find a wearable update with MyGlamm’s new offering that takes the longevity of a liquid lipstick and marries it with a lightweight texture enriched with vitamin E. Expect a single-stroke application that lasts all day long without weighing your lips down.
L’Oréal Paris Air Volume Mega Mascara
Life is short, but your lashes needn’t be. More updates to mascara technology can be found in L’Oréal Paris’ cushiony brush that clings on to every last lash with a whipped, light-as-air formula that offers 48 hours of waterproof wear.
SUGAR Cosmetics Mettle Priming Balm
If you are looking to break up with a shiny T-zone in the scorching heat of summer, you’ll want to pay closer attention to your priming routine. To ensure that your makeup doesn’t melt off your face the second you step outdoors, look to SUGAR Cosmetics’ creamy balm to blur out fine lines, sop up excess oil and lock your makeup in place all day.
