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.
Glossier’s newest release is named Wowder, and for a pretty good reason. It’s a multi-featured product with some pretty good ~wow~ factors. Wowder is not only a pore-blurring setting powder, but its formula is also lightweight, so you’ll get that clean, matte finish without having to worry about it looking caked on, ‘cause who in the hell needs that?! Surely not *I*. — Marie
Becca Cosmetics really know how to make products that leave us looking *and* feeling like a goddess. Every product is made with glowing skin and an airbrushed finish in mind. This new liquid-to-powder blurring primer vanishes the appearance of pores, fine lines, and imperfections — just what I like to hear. — Alyssa
It’s always a goddamn PLEASURE when Benefit adds to their Benetint line, and their latest addition to the family honestly, truly speaks to me. This new tint is cherry red, aka my forever signature lip shade. Plus, it’s adorably named Gogo, which simultaneously reminds me of Inspector Gadget, Tiny Toons, and ’60s mod fashion, of course. Can’t go wrong with any of that. — Marie
Want your skin to have that lit-from-within glow or look as if you were naturally born with angelic skin? Say hello to your new best friend, FAB’s Multi Sticks. The cream-to-powder complexion sticks are infused with mango butter, shea butter, Vitamin E, and (best of all) micro-pearls. Yeah, you’ll be gleaming in no time. Pop this on your cheeks, brow bone, lips, and shoulders for that luminous glow. — Alyssa
Anything Muva and Flirt Cosmetics serves up, I’m ready for it AND asking for seconds. Flirt’s latest, the Kajal Eyeliner, is a cone-shaped longwear liquid liner that is meant to last through a night of wild shenanigans. Who wants to test it on a night out with me? #SheReady. — Marie
6Inglot Flexi Eco Palette, $16
Inglot’s new palette is aimed at decreasing packaging waste, which, well, if you have ever ordered a tiny thing from Amazon Prime or bought something from Costco, you know can be a problem. Their Flexi Eco palette is made from sustainable materials such as bamboo, and is ECO-certified. If you hit pan, don’t throw this earth-friendly cutie away — simply buy a new pan to refill it! — Marie
Do I have any squalane fans in the house? Are you like WTF is squalane? Scientifically speaking, squalane is a mega-moisturizing molecule. The human body produces its own version of this good stuff, but it starts to decrease as you get older. So Biossance did a cool thing and invented a plant-based squalane made from sugarcane, making it the brand’s hero ingredient. Not only do their new biodegradable cleansing cloths remove makeup easily, but they’ll also help to condition your brows and lashes while keeping your skin hydrated. So if you’re at the gym or traveling and forgot to pack your moisturizer, you’ll be able to wipe off the day from your face and still make sure it gets taken care of, hydration-wise, at the same time. — Marie
Leave it to Drybar to infuse their new shampoo with the hottest ingredient in skin care. If charcoal is great for our skin, then it must be good for the rest of our makeup, skin care, and hair needs right? The charcoal purifies and deep cleans your hair and scalp, while the vegetable protein strengthens and treats damaged or chemically-treated hair. I’ll take this shampoo just how I take my drinks, thank you very much. — Alyssa
Doesn’t this collection remind you of Breakfast at Tiffany’s? Maybe it’s the mint-colored packaging or the baby pink blush that makes me want to channel Audrey Hepburn and walk into the jewelry store. Either way, this collection is too cute to pass up. The bundle comes with two liquid matte lipsticks, two eyeshadow duos, two eye crayons, two blushes, and a free makeup bag. While you can buy all eight pieces separately (ranging from $18-$25), you’ll definitely save some mula if buy the bundle. — Alyssa
If you’re new to Melt Cosmetics, then their Hot Box collection is the perfect starter pack, as it includes lipsticks, eyeliners, lip liners, eyeshadows, and a makeup pouch of your choice. And don’t the shadows and lipsticks have you wishing for fall weather and pumpkin pice lattes? It’s Friday, babes, and it’s the perfect day to treat yourself to some new products. — Alyssa
Bath and Body Works must have heard our cries, because they added two new products to their fan-favorite Coco Shea Body Oil collection: cucumber and honey. If your skin is feeling this transitional weather, then this cucumber body oil is just what the doctor ordered. It’s vitamin-packed with cocoa butter and shea butter to give your skin the ultimate hydration throughout the day. — Alyssa
