Whether you love a good multitasking product because you’re busier than ever or you just demand more from your makeup these days (don’t we all), one of the predominant beauty trends we’ve seen over the past few years isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Makeup infused with skin-care ingredients is the ultimate way to treat your skin as you perfect your complexion, and also may help you save time in the morning. These six new launches pack a double-duty punch.
Skin-Brightening Color Corrector
Use OleHenriksen Banana Bright+ Vitamin CC Eye Sticks ($34) (there are three colors) on dark circles or dark spots for additional skin-tone evening that concealer can’t always provide. They contain two forms of vitamin C, circulation-boosting caffeine, and light reflecting “banana powder” pigments.
Skin-Plumping Cream Blush
Available in six shades, Makeup by Mario Soft Pop Plumping Blush Veil ($30) is a creamy formula infused with active levels of hyaluronic acid to volumize and plump like a moisturizer would, all while providing an effortless pop of color for that no-makeup look.
Plumping Tinted Lip Oil
As the brand puts it best, Rituel de Fille Thorn Bite Peptide Plump Crème Lip Oil ($27) is “lip care for makeup lovers.” It’s a super silky, vegan lip oil infused with peptides and botanicals (the first ingredient on the lineup is organic marula oil, so you know it’s concentrated). It comes in six beautiful shades (Rose Crush is pictured here), and isn’t sticky or tingly at all, but rather it leaves the lips rich with moisture.
Hydrating Setting Powder
If you want shine control, but don’t want that desert-dry look, CLE Cosmetics Hydro Blot Loose Powder ($35) is the modern setting powder to try. It contains an innovative encapsulated hyaluronic acid that bursts into the natural mineral powder base when it touches your skin. We love the subtle cooling effect as well, especially for summertime, and it’s translucent, so it works on all skin tones.
Skin-Firming Setting Spray
Beautyblender BOOST 4-in-1 Firming Peptide Setting Spray ($33) not only locks makeup in place for up to 18 hours, but also helps reduce fine lines and gives skin a plumper appearance with peptides and mimosa flower extract.
Concealer Infused With Eye Serum
Fans of Iris & Romeo have been clamoring for a concealer to pair with its best-selling tinted moisturizer, and Best Skin Days Treatment Concealer ($32) is finally here. Available in 12 flexible shades, the formula combines an eye serum and dark spot treatment (yes, there’s vitamin C involved), along with medium coverage, to create a second-skin finish that goes above what standard concealers offer.
