These beauty products are getting us through the start of summer.
I have a love-hate relationship with summer beauty. On the one hand, it’s a time for bright colors, low-key looks, and gives me an excuse to preach about the importance of sunscreen. Seriously, lather on up. Then, there’s the not-so-nice part. The frizz, the sweat-induced pimples, the melty mascara. Oh, what a joy the heat and humidity can be. Thankfully, beauty brands are in the loop when it comes to the pros and cons of summer beauty.
The new launches that hit shelves this month ran the gamut: from bold eyeshadow palettes and indulgent hair perfumes to LED acne-fighting devices and game-changing blurring powders. And let me just say—these new products are good. Like, my entire makeup routine has gone through a revamp, good. I’m not the only one either. All of the Marie Claire editors have managed to find new summer staples over the past few weeks.
Here, the whole team took a beat to obsess over their new favorite beauty launches, offer up application tips, and help you streamline your summer beauty shopping. So, without further ado, keep scrolling to take a look at what skincare, makeup, haircare, and fragrance are taking up real estate on our shelves.
THE BEST NEW FRAGRANCE
Veronique Gabai Aroma Body Eau de Parfum
“This just-launched trio blends amazing fragrances with the power of aromatherapy. The scent you choose (body, soul, or earth) is designed to impact how you feel, interact with others, and approach the day. My personal favorite is Body, which genuinely makes me feel like a happier, more social person. The citrus notes also double as the perfect summer scent.” – SH
