Summer is always a great time for new beauty big-guns. Bold colors, improved formulas, infinite hair care solutions– Let’s face it; it’s every GlossyGirl’s dream. Here are some of the powerhouse products that will send you on a Sephora binge:
1. To the Rescue!
You’ve heard of BB, CC, and even DD, but now there’s bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream ($29, Sephora). The gel-based formula is paraben-free and perfect for melting into the skin, complete with SPF 30 and healthy antioxidants. Plus it comes in ten different shades, so you’re sure to find your best fit!
2. Power Up
I know pointe-dancers whose feet are nicer than mine. The Ped Egg Power Cordless Electric Callus Remover ($14.99, Target) changed all that. It was super easy to use (it only needs two AA batteries) and truly a modern miracle.
3. Behind the Mask
The Sephora Collection Eye Mask ($5 ea, Sephora) is sure to become a favorite. With eight different tantalizing varieties, these natural fiber eye masks help renew everything from moisture to energy. Most masks tell you to avoid the eye area, so isn’t it time it got a little TLC?
4. The Cure (Not the Band)
Speaking of areas that need some attention, when was the last time you gave your cuticles some love? Deborah Lippmann The Cure ($24, Sephora) is here to see that you revitalize and nourish your nail beds with vitamins A, C, and E– along with other natural rejuvinators. It’s everything you didn’t know you needed.
5. All About That Base
If you’re always looking to up your mascara game, Lancome Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base ($25, Sephora) should be next on your list. It primes and preps your lashes for whatever mascara you’ve grown to love, as well as extends the wear. You can even use it at night to recharge your lashes while you sleep– sign me up!
6. Naked and Afraid?
If you’re not ready to commit to one of the NAKED palettes, Too Faced Natural Matte Palette ($36, Ulta) is a great beginner kit. With nine gorgeous matte shades, this premiere palette is perfect for any time of day and any look!
7. Be Living Proof
Talk about beauty sleep! Living Proof Perfect Hair Day, Night Cap Overnight Perfector ($28, Sephora) actually improves your hair while you sleep. While it smooths, calms, and shines your hair, all you have to do is catch up on some much-needed Z’s.
8. Locked and Loaded
Traveling with nail polish can be unnerving: What if it opens or breaks? How can I keep them from clanging together? Formula X The System to Go ($16, Sephora) has the answer to that question. It’s a multi-step, multi-benefit manifestation of sheer genius. The lid locks in the four separate bottles and assures that whichever quad you choose is as ready to go as you are!
9. Clay On
Clay masks have been around the block a few times, but what about clay for your eyebrows? That’s right: I’m talking about tarte Colored Clay Tinted Brow Gel ($21, Sephora). Any one of the five different colors is sure to sculpt and style with the utmost precision– plus it’s waterproof and won’t budge for up to 12 hours!
10. See You at the Bar
The eyeshadow bar, that is. With Buxom Customizable Eyeshadow Bar Palette ($40, Sephora), you can choose six shades to make your own personalized palette (and save $45 in the process!). There are 40 different eye shadows and endless combinations in-store or online– you’ve never loved a palette so much in your life. It’s almost like they made it with you in mind.
If you’re anything like me, by the time you got through half the list you already had a dozen open tabs and six full carts. So go ahead, dare to be a trendsetter. There’s a game-changer out there for everyone…
