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.

If I stare long enough at this highlighter, it starts looking like a vintage Mother of Pearl jewelry box that I once had. And no wonder, it’s actually inspired by the conch shell. Gorgeous, right? I love this mint, lilac, and peach combo. It just screams spring. — Marie

Cargo Cosmetics

Not only are the eyeshadow shades in this palette vibrant and colorful like the city of Havana, but the name of this product makes me want to bust out singing Camila Cabello’s hit song “Havana.” With cute shade names like Malecon and Playa Del Este, it makes me want to go on a tropical vacation. — Alyssa

Catrice Cosmetics

This face palette from Catrice has everything you need for complexion makeup — eight options in matte and shimmer shades and in both cream and powder. It’s the kind of palette that you can throw in your travel bag if you’re trying to pack light, but want to have a good choice of makeup.   — Marie


This brightening mask is so intriguing to me since it comes in a stick formula. The creamy mask stick works on dry or wet skin, and all you need to do is leave it on for 5 minutes. Since my skin has been breaking out lately, it looks like I have a date with Yes To this weekend. — Alyssa


Frank Body

Frank Body’s latest lip scrub looks good enough to eat. And you probably can, since it’s made of coffee, raw sugar, and ethically-sourced beeswax. — Marie


I’ve recently discovered this gorgeous brand that “celebrates the mind, heart, soul, and body.” Aside from having a wonderful mission, its hydrating, ultra-rich Milk Skin Soak will help comfort dry, stressed out skin and provide some much-needed moisture. Since I’ve been stressed planning a wedding (I get married in two weeks!), this bath soak is just what the doctor ordered. — Alyssa


Lavanila is a great option for natural deodorants, and this new elements collection sounds like something my pits NEED. I’m an air sign (Libra), so clearly I’ll need the Vanilla + Air for Creativity deodorant. It has violet, rose, and Madagascar vanilla. — Marie

Courtesy of ColourPop

ColourPop has done it again with another bomb-ass influencer collab. This time, the brand teamed up with Eva Gutowski on this vibrant makeup collection. With cheeky product names like the She’s a Beach Babe lipstick set to the Mermaid Glow face duo, there’s something here for everyone. — Alyssa

PUR Cosmetics

This primer will not only prep my face canvas before my makeup, but it will moisturize at the same time. Its aloe, probiotic, and coconut water ingredients will help with hydration and decrease redness. I have a feeling this is going to end up being my new morning savior. — Marie

Courtesy of Winky Lux

Winky Lux creates the most dazzling lipsticks, so it’s no surprise that I’m head-over-heels in love with its Matcha lip balm. It’s made with real green tea powder and food-grade vanilla, so it will not only smell heavenly on your lips, but it will soften, repair, and moisturize your pretty pout. It’s time to pucker up! — Alyssa

If you’re a fan of the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye collection, you’ll be stoked on its new Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer with SPF 50+. It’s the brand’s first-ever complete coverage moisturizer. The brand is big on incorporating skin care into its color cosmetics and this latest launch will help with coverage all while moisturizing and protecting your skin. Gotta love a multi-purpose product! — Marie

Courtesy of Sigma Beauty

I’ve been a huge fan of Sigma’s 3DHD beauty sponge since it first launched last year (I’ve gone through at least 4 already, it’s so good!). So I was super excited to learn that they improved its game-changing blender with a softer texture and increased durability. — Alyssa

Courtesy of The Body Shop

I’ve been getting into overnight masks more, but I haven’t tried one for eyes yet. This new eye mask from The Body Shop is made with cucumber extract and plant stem cells and it’s supposed to help with under-eye bags (NEED), fade dark circles, and help improve signs of fatigue and aging. Gonna need it after my next all-night Fast and the Furious marathon.  — Marie

As a brunette, we sometimes get left out when it comes to easy-to-use hair color products (since we have to do sooo much to our hair to color it). That’s why I’m so happy Overtone launched a quick, no-bleach-necessary Rose Gold dye for people with brown hair. All you have to do is apply it to wet or dry hair (wear gloves, though, to avoid staining), wait 15 minutes (Yes, honey), and rinse. It’s that easy. — Alyssa


Lingerie brand LIVELY is expanding its offerings into beauty and just dropped a perfume. It has notes of jasmine petals, sea salt, and pear. Sounds lovely, no? If you’re looking for a new perfume (it was International Fragrance Day just recently) this is a good option to try. It’s manufactured by Firmenich, the same peeps who are behind Glossier, Dolce & Gabbana, and Marc Jacobs fragrances, so you KNOW it’s gonna be good.  — Marie

Beauty Bakerie

First off, how freakin’ cute is this packaging? Aside from making me wish Easter was already here, Beauty Bakerie’s new Blending Egg Beauty Sponges will help you blend your makeup seamlessly. This launch has me super eggs-cited (I couldn’t help it!). — Alyssa


I stan hardcore for Bliss’ old Fabulous Foaming Face Wash Cleanser, which got a fancy new makeover, here. In fact, Bliss just did a whole brand relaunch and came out with new face masks to celebrate. I have major plans for using its Marshmallow Brightening Mask this weekend. There’s also the What a Melon De-Stressing Overnight Mask and the Honey Moisturizing Mask.


Bring the spa to the comfort of your own home with Huxley’s new Spa Routine trio. It features the Scrub Mask Sweet Therapy (which you’ll want to use first), the Healing Mask Keep Calm (use this after the scrub), and the Sleep Mask Good Night (finish it off with this). You have everything you need to give your skin some TLC. — Alyssa


Oooh, Miss Sally Hansen made some CUTE nail appliques. I haven’t done nail decals in a minute, but I’m super excited to try these. The gold wire is especially fierce. — Marie

Morgan Taylor

Morgan Taylor teamed up with Gelish on this colorful collection that makes me want to live in a candy wonderland. Aside from this line being inspired by the lavish lifestyle of Marie Antoinette, it includes six vibrant shades (and one additional glitter top coat). I’m dreaming of spring! I’ll be channeling Marie Antoinette this weekend, thank you very much. — Alyssa


I love me some Hello toothpaste, so I know I’m going to dig the brand’s new Natural Mint Mouthwash. It’ll keep your breath on point during any upcoming makeout sessions. — Alyssa


Let your hair drink up this leave-in tonic, which is enriched with the brand’s Green Supreme recipe (so you know it’s GOOD). This tonic helps to condition and nourish your hair, while also enhancing its shine. *Hair flip emoji* — Alyssa

Courtesy of Vamp Stamp

As I have said many times on this website, I AM an eyeliner snob. Vamp Stamp won my heart with its first launch, so I’m super excited to try the new eyeliner/corrector, because yes, there are days when I need some help correcting a wayward wing. (FAR AND FEW BETWEEN, FYI). — Marie
