To us, there are few things better than the arrival of summer. Aside from the obvious warm weather, Summer Fridays, and overall carefree joy that go hand-in-hand with this sunny season, the beauty launches surrounding it are also always the most exciting. Being that it's, you know, hot, there's a good chance we'll either be sweating or under water. Thankfully, once May or June rolls around, so do some of the most innovative new products in SPF and UV protection, waterproof and sweat-proof formulas, and other beach and poolside necessities.
We rounded up 14 of these beach bag-friendly beauty launches that we just can't wait to get our hands on, from long-lasting neon eyeshadow palettes to aftersun products for slathering on post-pool day. So, whether you're a barefaced beach-goer or more of a "full face of makeup no matter what" kind of person, these have you covered (in some cases, quite literally). Check 'em out, below.
