From lipstick weaponry to your next Kat Von D holy grail palette, here are this week's best beauty launches
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.
Leave it to Huda Beauty to keep things interesting and different in the beauty world. I love that she partnered with Tweezerman to bring us mortals a kit that will whip our brows into tip top shape. Come on, her brows are #goals, so it makes sense that she would create the *ultimate* kit. The great thing about this collaboration is that you can buy the items separately — so if you’re in desperate need of cute tweezers, but don’t want to drop $65, they got you. — Alyssa
Marc Jacobs Beauty continues to create stunning products that can easily transform your look from natural to ultra glam. Their latest launch includes six eyeshadow palettes that range from bold blues to sultry purples. Whether you’re going for a more neutral look like Selena Gomez in her new video “Fetish” or want to channel your inner Cher, there’s an Eye-Conic Multi-Finish palette for you. Side note: Cher actually debuted the new palettes during her iconic Billboard Music Award performance this year, so if they’re good enough for her, they’re good enough for me. — Alyssa
Y’all I set my alarm for this launch because, as someone who loves metallic and shimmer shades, I knew I needed this limited-edition product in my life. I’m obsessed with Kat Von D Beauty’s original Shade and Light Eye Contour Palette and have a feeling this new 12-shade palette will be my new holy grail. Unfortunately, Kat Von D’s brush for the Glimmer palette is out of stock, but I’m crossing my fingers and toes for a restock. — Alyssa
4Tatcha The Body Mist, $50
Body mists are not just a part of your memories from junior high, thanks to Tatcha. The Body Mist is a luxe grownup version of those fresh fragrances you used to collect from the mall — without all those questionable ingredients and synthetic fragrances. It also includes anti-aging Japanese ingredients, so your skin can forever be youthful. — Marie
Upon first glance, this new lipstick from Hourglass might look like a fancy pen or, as Hourglass described through cleverly styled Instagram photos, a “secret weapon.” A true innovative lip product, Confession comes with a sleek, chic gold applicator that can be easily switched out with any of their 30 stunning shades. Pretty genius, IMHO. — Marie
This mascara was inspired by hairstyling trends, so the brush applicator is styled after a paddle brush. It’s made to last for 18 hours. Good product to have on hand if you know you’re going to have a loooong day. — Marie
Believe it or not, some of us prefer *not* to have a dewy finish. This new setting spray is lightweight, but will help seal your flawless matte look. — Marie
LORAC released three gorgeous new eyeshadow palettes that are inspired by the Desert, Ocean, and Mountain sunsets. How amazing is that? Unfortunately, the only palette available is the Mountain Sunset eyeshadow palette, and it’s only a matter of time before that one flies off the online shelf. Each product comes with 10 ultra-rich eyeshadows and they come with a free mini Behind-the-Scenes eye primer. — Alyssa
Doesn’t this product make you want to sing in the shower to Destiny’s Child “Bootylicious” — especially the part “I don’t think you’re ready for this jelly?” Is it just me? Okay, moving on. Not only will this gel get you excited to hop in the shower, but your skin will feel silky smooth, thanks to the honey and shea butter extract. — Alyssa
This lotion is infused with all of the nourishing and refreshing ingredients your skin needs in the summertime — Aloe, Vitamin E, and coconut oil. And at $7 each, why not add all six to your cart? Hello Beautiful, Love and Sunshine, and the Japanese Cherry Blossom products are calling my name. — Alyssa
11Tata Harper Clarifying Mask, $68
Our skin needs just as many nutrients as our body, and Tata Harper’s new clarifying mask is jam-packed with superfoods. It seriously looks good enough to eat (please don’t eat it). The main thing that sets this mask apart is that it has an “AHA superfruit blend and quartz sand micro crystals,” according to Sephora’s site. This blend helps to minimize pores, decrease redness, and smooth your skin. Sign me up! — Alyssa
To wake up, we normally drink coffee or apply tons of brightening concealer, but with Fresh Beauty’s new Moisture Glow Face Cream you don’t need any of that. Their new cream instantly awakens your skin with its Vitamin C, E, and B5 infused ingredients. Not only will your face look refreshed, but your skin will have that lit-from-within glow. — Alyssa
Supreme goddess Amber Rose teamed up with her makeup artist Priscilla Ono to create this new collection which features kiss-proof creamy matte lipsticks in six different shades. They can last up to eight hours which is OBV one serious makeout session. (How many episodes of Game of Thrones is that? I don’t watch GOT, is that something you can make out to? I digress.) The powerful yet lightweight formula will last through many gestures of affection, as evidenced by this adorable Instagram vid of Muva with her son Sebastian. Can’t wait to test it on the object of my own affection, a cheeseburger.
