Hot Skincare Summer: What This Season Teaches About Glow & Beauty!

Rihanna summer beauty

Not so fast, pumpkin spice lattes! Summer is still here and glowing!

We’re seeing bright, bold colors at last… or maybe that was just that was a peek of the sun finally shining through the clouds!

Regardless, there’s lots of shiny, new products out this season, and we’re ready to embrace all the trends the beauty industry is throwing our way!

Take a look through them (below) and get your hot girl summer (that’s for anyone, y’all, not just cisgender females) started!


There’s a new sunscreen in town, and Supergoop’s Zincscreen SPF 40 (available HERE) is targeting those with oily and acne prone skin so it can be worn under makeup!

No more excuses forgetting to wear your SPF every day!

Fenty Beauty

Of course, Fenty Beauty has all the newness this summer!

Rihanna‘s line is coming through with electric colors, like with their Vivid Liquid Eyeliner Trio (available HERE), which is right on brand for the trendsetting beauty!

And you can expect to see way more vibrant shades this season… in addition to their new Pro Filt’r Hydrating Longwear Foundation (below) ready to launch August 15.

We’re ready!!!


Essie regularly releases new shades, and this summer, we’re seeing sparkling shades (available HERE) to paint our talons! You’ll be seeing geodes in more places than just your Instagram feeds…


Speaking of lots of color, Stila is taking the exact opposite route of sparkling (see their Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadows HERE) with their new Suede Shade collection (available HERE)! Eight matte shades feature “subtle iridescent pearls” so you can really layer your look this summer!


Eyes and lips, meet Glossier’s Bubblewrap (available HERE)! Designed to be used in both areas, the product provides moisture and boasts plumping!

If it’s a new brow product you’re after, the brand has launched their newest go-to with the Brow Flick (beloe). Designed to give you a look comparable to microblading, it’s meant to be used to “define the arch, extend the tail, and add depth to sparse areas.”

You can ch-ch-check it out HERE.

A post shared by Charlotte Tilbury, MBE (@ctilburymakeup) on

Want compliments on your hot lips?? Charlotte Tilbury has that corner covered with her newest 2.0 lipstick launch (HERE), available in satin and matte finishes. With names like Glowing Jen (ahem, Jennifer Aniston), Amazing Amal (Amal Clooney, perhaps?), and Viva La Vergara (hello, Sofia Vergara), you’ll be channeling some real bombshells with your pout!

If you can wait until August 22, fans will also be excited to see her new Airbrush Flawless Foundation and four Magic Vanish Color Correctors!

Huda Beauty

Not Your Mama’s Panty Hose (available HERE) is right!! Huda Beauty’s face-and-body liquid highlighter launch could give Kim Kardashian West a run for her money, and is giving you a new way to “glow in ways like never before”!

Can we bathe in this stuff???

Sephora Collection

Crystals are more for just placing on your chakras! For those who love the beautiful gems, Sephora Collection is putting their healing powers to use with their Facial Roller Set (available HERE) featuring rose quartz, amethyst, and jade interchangeable heads. Or there’s the portable Crystal Serum Roller (available HERE), which allows you to not only take your fave stone (rose quartz or amethyst) with you, but also your fave facial serum or body oil for applications on the go!

We can feel the healing vibes already!

Haus Laboratories

Lady GaGa has officially done it: she’s come out with her own beauty line! Haus Laboratories launched just in time, offering Glam Attack liquid shimmer powders, Le Riot lip gloss duos, and RIP lip liner duos — all available to purchase HERE from Amazon.

Wanna make Mother Monster proud? Ch-ch-check out her six three-piece collections at the link (above).

Fresh Beauty

Strawberries don’t just make for the perfect topping for a salad, but your skincare routine, too! Fresh Beauty’s Sugar Strawberry Exfoliating Face Wash (available HERE) smells like a sweet escape for those rough mornings when getting out of bed takes all your strength.

Been there.


We’re not just wearing our feelings on our sleeves anymore, but stacked in our tresses. From “vibes (above), “bo$$,” “DRIPPIN,” and more bedazzled clips (available HERE), you can effortlessly take your look to extra levels with these additions from Kitsch’s collab with celeb hairstylist Justine Marjan.

Physicians Formula

With summer’s arrival, you’ll find us slathering on the sunscreen, but there’s one spot which tends to be forgotten: our lips! A lip cream with the added benefit of SPF 15 makes it a must-have not just in your beach bag, but whenever you’ll be outside.

We can already taste the punchy peach, guava, and more of the Butter Lip Creams (above), available HERE!

If you’re looking for something more chilling this season, try popping their Rosé collection (available HERE)into the fridge for a cooling morning and night application! Take a look (below):



Love is in the air, and that’s just not reserved for those spending their summery days by the beach! Skylar’s August scent of the month (available HERE) is inspired by exotic vacations, and TBH, we’re ready to dive right in because we’re nowhere near ready for this season to be over.

Enjoy the sweet, sweet smell of summer via Love in Paradise!


You hear the words “eye patches” and your ears instantly perk up, right? Well, one application of Patchology’s Perk Up (available HERE), and hopefully your undereye area will be looking perky, too!


New to the skincare game is Lululemon (available HERE), coming out strong with a sweat reset face moisturizer and a “basic” balm, with a deodorant and dry shampoo to round out the whole collection. Taking you from the gym straight to work, this is a new way to start the day!

Nature lab Tokyo

We’ve been seeing more and more scalp scrubs hit the market, and leave it to NatureLab Tokyo’s (available HERE) to arrive just in time for beach days! Made with exfoliating sugar crystals, probiotic sake water, and Hyaluronic Acid, the Shine Clarifying Scrub will bring moisture back into your hair after getting dried out from the salty ocean spray!


If you’re looking for more newness this summer, Diptyque’s Eau de Minthé (available HERE) will leave quite the impression!

Also, it’s no mistake if it reminds you of Greece. While not everyone can travel to the beautiful country and specifically, Cyclades islands, we can at least let this scent transport us there with a few whiffs.

Kora Organics

Summer means getting that vitamin C, and we fully intend on letting our skin soak it up with Kora Organics’ Noni Bright Serum (available HERE)! Meant to “brighten, firm, and reduce the appearance of pigmentation,” your skincare regimen is about to get perked up big time!

Seed Phytonutrients

Another trend we’re seeing is eco-friendly beauty like this shampoo (available HERE) and conditioner (available HERE) from Seed Phytonutrients.

We can only hope more brands hop on this bandwagon!

Kylie Skin

Kylie Jenner‘s name seems to be enough for fans to come running. And that seemed to be no different when the makeup mogul dropped her first Kylie Skin line (available HERE), consisting of makeup removing wipes, eye cream, face moisturizer, vitamin c serum, vanilla milk toner, walnut face scrub, and foaming face wash.

Kris Jenner‘s youngest daughter recently expanded the line with a summer collection, complete with a coconut body scrub, coconut body lotion, and broad spectrum SPF 30 sunscreen oil.


Probiotics aren’t just popping up in fridges and medicine cabinets, but even GlamGlow is trying to hit on the health trend with their new Recovery Mask (available HERE). Boasting blueberry, cranberry, and goji fruit extracts, along with lactobacillus ferment, hyaluronic acid, and jojoba oil, this recovery mask is said to bring moisture back to the skin’s barrier!

Marc Jacobs Beauty

Your skincare regimen is shaking with the launch of Marc Jacobs Beauty’s Youthquake Gel Créme Moisturizer (available HERE)! Formulated with “powerful pineapple enzymes and encapsulated sodium hyaluronate, for hydration, retexturizing results, and a glowing, makeup-ready canvas,” you might find it completely replaces your need for a primer!

Olive & June

best friends for ever and ever and ever

A post shared by Olive & June (@oliveandjune) on

Olive & June has also released their summer shades (available HERE): CNH, a denim-inspired blue, BI, a beachy peachy coral, SE, a bright pop of pink, and HD, a fresh, crisp white. There’s plenty of cool combos you can make with these colors, and we can’t wait to see how you pair them!


More liquid eyeshadows for the win! Kosas is all about celebrating the trend with their 10-Second Eyeshadows (available HERE). “The formula is carefully crafted with skin benefiting ingredients to smooth and tone — that’s skincare for your eyelids.”

Colourpop Cosmetics

Viva Becky G‘s new collab with Colourpop (available HERE)! The seven-piece collection looks like all sorts of fire, and just goes to show vibrant shades will be taking over your IG feed all season long!

Tarte Cosmetics

Speaking of, you likely won’t find as much color in such a small package like you will with tarte’s JessiePaege palette (available HERE)!

There’s more hotness ahead with their Unleashed collection (available HERE), ready for your end-of-summer getaways!

The thought of this season ending would give us chills, but we’re just going to embrace our wild side and pretend fall is never coming.

NYX Professional makeup

An affordable skincare line? That’s a summer hack! NYX Professional Makeup’s Bare With Me collection (available HERE) is infused with coconut and cucumber extracts for an extra refreshing day by the pool/beach/air conditioning unit.

You’ll find the Prime. Set. Refresh. Multitasking Spray, Hydrating Jelly Primer, Tinted Skin Veil, and the Hydrating Cheek Tint for a “light as air” no-makeup, makeup look!

Milk Makeup

There’s more multi-tasking here with Milk Makeup’s Glow Oil (available HERE)! Made to be worn on your cheeks or lips, its sweet size is easy to take on the go!  We’re also all here for these dewy shades, like Astro, a shimmering plum, Glimmer, a shimmering mauve, Halo, a bright pink with shimmer, and Flare, a coral with… wait for it, shimmer.

Urban Decay

Urban Decay’s partnership with CL, Ezra Miller, Joey King, Karol G, and Lizzo is fresh this summer, challenging “typical” beauty standards as they star in the NEW Stay Naked campaign!

With 50 shades of long-wear foundation, 25 shades of correcting concealer, and 12 shades of Vice Lip Chemistry (all available HERE).

Just ch-ch-check it — and Lizzo — out (below)!


Tatcha’s best selling Dewy Skin Mist has some new competition thanks to their Satin Skin Mist (available HERE), which is great for those with oily or combination skin. Finally!

As the name suggests, the mist’s fine spray gives skin a satin — AKA not totally matte — finish.

Drybar meets It Cosmetics with the newest products on their roster: Lash Blowout Mascara (available HERE)! Designed to bring “the benefits of a top hair salon blowout to your eyelashes,” the product boasts an “instant lift.”

And Drybar fans will love the packaging, inspired by the salon’s barrel brushes! Prepare to be ~BLOWN~ away.

Renee Rouleau Skincare

Esthetician Renée Rouleau is loved by celebrity clientele for a reason, she gives results! While you’ll find both basic and essential sets off of your skin type, the star skin savior recently revealed a Rapid Response Detox Kit (available HERE) to fight breakouts. The best part? It’s travel-ready in a clear zip bag and is TSA-approved at less than 3.4 ounces each!

Aether Beauty

Aether Beauty is bringing the Summer Solstice with another palette (available HERE) made of zero waste, 100% recyclable packaging! The “sunset” shades are completely swoon-worthy, not to mention, the formula is made with rubies (promotes creativity and self-esteem), topaz (strengthens the body and balances), and amber (provides a protective shield against negative energies and is a natural purifier), so you can cover yourself in crystals!

Positive energy is just a smokey eye away! At least that’s what we can tell ourselves.

Moon Juice

Promoting “healthier, thicker, stronger hair,” Moon Juice’s SuperHair is a 21-ingredient supplement (available HERE), which supports an “internal environment”  to target stress, replenish nutrition, protect follicles, and boost nutrients!

We. Are. Ready.

Pat McGrath labs

Celebrity makeup artist Pat McGrath has finally entered the foundation game with her first foray: Skin Fetish! You’ll find the Sublime Perfection Foundation (available HERE), Sublime Perfection Primer (available HERE), Sublime Perfection Setting Powder (available HERE), and of course, two brushes to complete the look.

These products don’t come cheap, but the highly-anticipated launches scream “luxury”!

Paintbox Nails

New York City salon Paintbox Nails has you ready with its Power Couples, three separate duos of nail polish in combos (available HERE) ready to be worn!

These aren’t your traditional pairs, either. A forest green paired with a pastel blue might be out-of-the-box, but just ch-ch-check out how it’s done (below):



We can wax poetic about protecting yourself from sun damage all day — especially when the sunscreen is reef safe! Chemicals commonly found in these products contribute to the problem of dying coral reefs AKA bleaching, according to some reports.

Coola offers a huge range of “reef-friendly” products, like their Mineral SPF 30 Sunscreen Spray (available HERE).

This is one trend we’re thrilled to be seeing!


After a day in the sun, you may find yourself needing to get chill with Beautycounter’s After Sun Cooling Gel (available HERE)! “With aloe and California poppy extract, it cools on contact to help soothe skin post UV exposure and boost hydration—safely.”


We’re smelling banana and coconut with Briogeo’s Superfoods Shampoo and Conditioner (available HERE), and we don’t hate it. We switch up the rest of our regimens, why not bring a little bit of the tropics into the shower with an updated haircare routine?

Incredible Cosmetics

Bet you’ve never seen these before! Sheet masks for your boobs definitely seem like they’re worth the try… if not for the fun selfies you can take! These ones (above) from Incredible Cosmetics (available HERE) are meant to perk up your tatas!

Another fun tidbit? Sephora donated $1 from the sale of this product to support LGBTQ organizations through the month of June.

We can’t wait to see what other locations sheet masks will be made for!

Grande Cosmetics

This summer is all about achieving our goals, and for some people, that includes enhancing your lashes! GrandeLash-MD (available HERE) is doing the thang, so you’ll have an enviable set of flutters by fall!


L’Occitane has us feeling summer with their new collection, from the scents to the packaging! The Soothing Mask (available HERE) is just what we wanted with the dry weather! And would you know this is the brand’s first foray into makeup?

You’ll have to check out their Fruity Lipsticks (HERE), Tinted Lip Balms (HERE), and Fruity Perfecting Balm (HERE).


Clear skin isn’t just a trend for the summer, but Epionce’s Purifying Wash (available HERE) is a great fit as it can be used all over the body and face! That’s one less product taking up room in the shower!


Speaking of skin, Dermalogica recently released new products under their Active Clearing collection: the AGE Bright Clearing Serum and AGE Bright Spot Fader (available HERE and HERE). Not only does the packaging remind us of the cool blue waters we’ve been seeing all over our timelines, so there won’t be hiding these two away from our vanities!

Sol De Janeiro

The scent of Sol de Janeiro’s line is sweet enough to make anyone swoon! The Sol Stick SPF 50 and Bum Bum Sol Oil SPF (available HERE and HERE) can be worn year-round, but the scent is the definition of summer for us!


Birchbox has really stepped up their game with it comes to their Limited Edition sets, and Forever Summer is no different! The travel-ready kit comes packed, all in cute clear packaging, with an insane amount of of full size and smaller sized products!

With tarte’s Rainforest of the Sea 4-in-1 setting mist, rms beauty’s luminizer X quad, Wander Beauty Mile High Club Volume and Length Mascara, Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream, COOLA Sport Classic Moisturizer SPF 50, Bumble and bumble Surf Spray, R+Co DARK WAVES Fragrance Gel, Smith & Cult The Shining Lip Lacquer, Georgette Klinger Vitamin C Cleansing Gel, and a six-pack of Pūrlisse Watermelon Energizing Sheet Masks all included, you’ll definitely be getting your money’s worth (available HERE)!


CBD was a major trend when it came to skincare and beauty this year, and we have a feeling we’re only going to see it grow! Cannuka has expanded their line with the CBD Harmonizing Face Cream (available HERE) to calm and soothe sensitive skin, along with helping with oil production if you’re acne-prone!

Youth To The People

Kombucha isn’t just for guzzling down after finishing that trendy new workout, but Youth to the People is using it to make you feel beautiful on the outside, too! Their Kombucha + 11% AHA Exfoliation Power Toner (available HERE) “smooths, minimizes the appearance of pores, and firms the look of skin.” *Douses all over skin*

St. Tropez Tan

A moisturizing self-tanner? This gradual tan lotion (available HERE) from St. Tropez Tan has a watermelon scent to really hit on the trend! You won’t want to miss out on an application with a smell as perfect as this!


Biossance’s Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream (available HERE) aims to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while lifting the whole undereye area. After nights of dancing on the beach or out with friends, it’s perfect timing for a new eye cream!


How cute is this packaging?? In collaboration with BT21, Innisfree launched their limited edition Super Volcanic Clay Mousse Masks (HERE) with some of their fun designs! The already-popular product is new and improved with extra exfoliating power!


It won’t be long before you start seeing pore scrubbers everywhere… if you haven’t already spotted them popping up in your Instagram Stories! Dermaflash, known for their popular Luxe Facial Exfoliating Device, has come out with the Dermapore (available HERE), their ultrasonic pore extractor and serum infuser.

Your skin will thank you!


With microblading gaining steam, brows are getting a lot of love! If committing to the process isn’t for you, check out Hourglass Cosmetics’ newest Arch Brow product: the Micro Sculpting Pencil (HERE). Your newly sculpted look wouldn’t be complete without their Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow (HERE) to highlight your handy work!

Peach & Lily

If you don’t know Peach & Lily, you’re about to now! The skincare brand has brought Korean beauty to the States, and with its own collection, is wanting to share the ~glow~! Their newest additions out this month include the Overnight Star Sleeping Mask, Pore Proof Perfecting Clay Mask, and Cold Brew Eye Recovery Stick (all available HERE)!


Strivectin’s Double Fix For Lips (available HERE) is a two-in-one product: plumping on one side and enhancing lip elasticity on the other! The “Vertical Line Treatment helps improve elasticity and firmness around the lip line, reducing the appearance of stubborn vertical lines in just 4 weeks* and restoring lip contour.”

That’s a multi-tasking lippie we can get behind!

Beboe Therapies

Beboe has expanded into the CBD skincare world with Beboe Therapies, their first venture featuring High-Potency CBD Serum (HERE) and High-Potency CBD Face Masks (HERE). And the “high-potency” is no joke! You’ll find 300 mg of hemp-derived CBD in the face oil and 50 mg in the sheet masks.

The latter is meant to promote brightening, moisturizing, and calmed skin, and the design of it is as beautiful to match. See (below)!
