21 New Beauty Products To Help Ease You Into Summer


It’s that time again

Summer is slowly creeping toward us, and with it comes impromptu beach trips, higher electricity bills, and a yearning for new beauty products. And when it comes to the latter, ’tis the season to be extra.

Bold eyeshadow, rose gold highlighters, sheet masks you can wear out in public (nothing screams “I’m diligent about my self-care” than making sure everybody sees you engaging in it)—these are just some of the launches you have to look forward to. If the beauty mantra for winter is moisturizing and staying in, summer is the complete opposite. It’s all about lightweight skin care and extra shine—things brands are making sure they're offering plenty of.

Ahead, we've rounded up some of our favorite new beauty launches, so that once summer really kicks in, you’ll be stocked up on all of the products your budget will allow.
