Overwhelmed by all the new beauty products that are out? Never fear, fellow makeup maven. HelloGiggles’ Beauty Editor, Marie Lodi, and Associate Beauty Editor, Alyssa Morin, will be rounding up all of the best launches from the week in one place — in our Beauty Bulletin! Check back at the end of each week to find out which releases we need to get our perfectly painted claws on.

1Sara Happ Lip Plump and Prime Lip Airbrush, $28

When Sara Happ comes out with a lippie, you know it’s going to be your new holy grail — and that’s what her new product is for me! There was a time when I wanted lip fillers (but was too poor and chicken to actually get it done) BUT now I don’t have to, thanks to this uh-mazing plumper and primer. Listen, when I apply this on my lips, they instantly looks full, pillowy, fluffy, and juicy — this product gives me the illusion of lip fillers, minus the pain and money. Did I mention that this sweet baby also doesn’t hurt or tingle like other lip plumpers do? Y’all I am LIVING for this new lip product. — Alyssa

2E.l.f. Cosmetics Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette in Holy Smokes, $10

e.l.f. Cosmetics

When it comes to good, affordable palettes, e.l.f. always knows what’s up. Their latest matte eyeshadow set, Holy Smokes, is exactly what you need to create that deliciously dark, earthy eye look you’ll be dreaming about come fall. — Marie

3Living Proof T.B.D Multi-Tasking Styler, $26

You can use this product on damp or dry hair (YAY for having options!) and this will help tame and manage your gorgeous locks when you style it. Say hello to Selena Gomez hair in seconds. Okay, I’m exaggerating, but your hair will definitely look smooth and polished after you style it, and that’s enough to make me feel like a movie star. — Alyssa

4Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Beauty Light Wand and Hollywood Contour Wand, $38 each

Our dear makeup mother, Charlotte Tilbury, comes bearing magical gifts this week: her new Hollywood Beauty Light Wand and Hollywood Contour Wand. These two products will give you those bomb cheekbones you covet and a flossy highlight but like 20 times better than you could have thought, because, well, it’s from Mama Charlotte. Get them in a set for $67, and don’t forget to pick up the new Hollywood Complexion Brush ($40) too. — Marie

5Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Liquified Lipstick in Stir, $24

Bite Beauty is known for creating the most luxurious, safe, and sweet-smelling lipsticks, so it was only a matter of time before they came out with their own version of a liquid lipstick. It will take your lips to the next level, with its creamy, high-pigment formula and colors. — Alyssa

6Benefit Punch Pop! Liquid Lip Color, $18

Pioneers of makeup cuteness Benefit has done it again with this new lip gloss. I mean, it literally looks like the bubblegum of our youth! But unlike gum, you’ll get super shiny lips without stickiness. Watermelon and Cherry are my faves. — Marie

7Butter London Glazen Lip Glaze in Fairydust, $19

Ulta Beauty

I’m a gloss girl no matter if the trend is in style or not. So when Butter London came out with this purple holographic shimmer, my inner Spice Girl was screaming with joy. Not only is the shade oh so dreamy, but it’s called Fairy Dust, and I’ll take two please. — Alyssa

8Kat Von D Beauty Lock-It Handheld Mirror, $18

Kat Von D Beauty

I’ve been waiting for this GOTHIC mirror to come into our lives for months. How cute would this look on my Ikea vanity?! But seriously, Kat always kills it with the details, and the tiny stars on this mirror, which look like the ones she has tattooed on the side of her face, is the most darling idea ever.  — Marie

9La Roche-Posay Effaclar Shine Control Mask, $19.99

La Roche-Posay

This is La Roche-Posay’s first-ever clay mask in the U.S, and we are so happy we can get our hands on it. The face mask is formulated with gentle clays that get rid of excess oil (music to my ears), dust/pollution particles, and, best of all, it controls shine. So skip whatever plans you have this Sunday, because you’ll want to treat your skin to this amazing item. — Alyssa

10Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Hydra-Gel Eye Patches, $52

Peter Thomas Roth makes some of my favorite face masks, and I’m a fan of eye gels, so this launch is already a YES from me. They contain hyaluronic acid, caffeine, collagen, and ceramide 3 to help depuff your eyes and kick out wrinkles. That’s not all they launched this week — there’s a Cloud Cream Cleanser to go with these patches as well as the Skin to Die For No-Filter Mattifying Primer & Complexion Perfector and the 20% Complex Glycolic Solutions Peel Swabs. Honestly dying to try them allllll.  — Marie
