The 5 New Summer Beauty Launches Our Editors Are Excited About

One not-so-secret thing about being a beauty editor: We get to try a lot of products. And, while the deluge that comes across our desk can be overwhelming, one thing is for sure: When we find that one, totally unique new release, we just can’t help but share the news with everyone we know. Here’s a quick sampling of some of our favorites making their debut this month.

Elise Minton, Executive Beauty Editor: “I just got the new Rusk HeatShift Re-Styling Cream. If it does what it claims to do—change your hairstyle without the need to wash your hair or add additional products—this may change hair history forever.” $18, Ulta.com

Liz Ritter, Executive Managing Editor: “I had heard that Pixi Glow Tonic was one of those products that had a bit of a following (full disclosure: it’s not “new” but it is just making its debut stateside at Target this fall) and I had to see what all the hype was about. After using it for just a few days, my skin had the “glow” the product name promises. It also makes everything—pores, redness—look a lot better. It’s honestly magic.”

Carolyn Hsu, Digital Managing Editor: "Let’s face it—putting on sunscreen, while the most essential, is not always the sexiest part of your beauty routine. But AmorePacific’s new Sun Protection Cushion Compact is out to change that. The luxuriously packaged, lightweight sunscreen offers broad spectrum SPF 30+ protection in a trendy cushion format, combining high performance sun screen with antioxidants, anti-aging ingredients and moisturizers. The result? The most effortless and weightless sunscreen you’ll encounter this season." $40, Amorepacific.com

Brittany Burhop, Senior Editor: “Laneige Cushion Concealer. A fan of Korean 'cushion’ makeup, this concealer was love at first sight. Other formulas can leave my skin feeling dry, but this color-correcting version does nothing of the sort. It easily blends in, covering blemishes and hiding dark circles while delivering moisture. Plus, it has SPF 30+ broad-spectrum sun protection. Does it get any better than that?” $20, us.laneige.com

Margaret McGriff, Senior Web Editor: "Eye makeup is one of my favorite cosmetics to use (and buy!) and I’m really excited about this latest addition to Urban Decay’s Naked collection – the Smokey Palette. Unlike the other three, this one was made to create a gorgeous smokey eye, with neutral matte shades, shimmery bronzes, sultry gray, smokey black and even a rich purple shade. When it hits stores on July 8, I will definitely be one of the first in line!" $54, urbandecay.com
