Pinrose Sun Saint and Lil’ Dipper Fragrance ($65 each)
Aside from debuting a lineup of stunning new bottles for Spring, Pinrose is also rolling out two new fragrances that scream “vacation.” My favorite, Sun Saint, is an effortless blend of eucalyptus, dry coconut wood and cashmere musk, while Lil’ Dipper boasts intoxicating notes of peony, mandarin petals and lavender.
amika Bust Your Brass Cool Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner ($24 each)
There’s no time like spring and summer to ensure your blond locks stay brighter than ever. This new duo from amika, the ultimate cool-girl hair care brand, utilizes wild cherry bark extract and avocado oil to ensure your blond, silver or gray strands stay bright and smooth.
Guerlain Terracotta Sun Bronzing Contouring Palette ($56)
The newest addition to your summer makeup bag, this palette is the best pick for a just-got-back-from-the-beach tan. The matte bronzer, highlighter and shadow powder can either be applied to skin together in one sweeping motion for a sun-kissed effect or used separately for a sculpted, contoured look.
Drunk Elephant Umbra Tinte Physical Daily Defense ($36)
This lightweight physical sunscreen features SPF 30 protection and a surprising amount of dewy coverage to cover up any pigmentation without looking the least bit heavy. Even better, it’s packed with antioxidants to defend against pollution and curb premature signs of aging.
The original blow-dry bar’s oil-busting dry shampoo has already garnered a cult-status following (seriously, if you haven’t tried it, now’s the time), but is now adding a new scent to the same must-have formula. Featuring notes of violet, sandalwood and musk, the new fragrance adds a new spin on your morning ritual. If you’re a die-hard fan of the original scent, don’t worry—it isn’t going anywhere.
Kate Somerville UncompliKated SPF Soft Focus Makeup Setting Spray ($38)
This blurring makeup setting spray sneaks SPF into your makeup routine in a whole new way. The super fine mist dries quickly to set makeup, reduce shine and deliver a matte, soft-focus effect—all with the added benefit of broad-spectrum SPF 50. Plus, it’s infused with hyaluronic acid to hydrate and soften the appearance of wrinkles while you wear it. What more could you ask for?
Ever wish your hair could be done and styled before you step foot out of the shower? Now you can. This in-shower styling product is designed to be applied in the shower and lightly rinsed. A smart blend of ingredients is left behind to tame frizz and roughness while thickening strands to enhance natural waves for perfectly air-dried hair each time you wash.
The ultimate beach bag staple, this spray-and-go mist adds moisture, texture and volume to lifeless strands without leaving hair feeling stiff or “crunchy” like some others can. Plus, every spritz protects from the sun, pool and saltwater with UVA/UVB filters and leaves behind an addictive mango-coconut scent.
Bumble and bumble Don’t Blow It Thick ($31)
Building off of the popularity of the brand’s Don’t Blow It Fine—a styler that allows hair to air-dry perfectly—this launch brings the same innovative technology to those with medium-to-thick, coarse hair. The crème begins to work its magic after you apply it evenly to towel-dried hair: Lightweight polymers enhance bounce, prickly pear and cactus flower extracts help hair dry smoothly, a blend of natural oils add moisture, and UVA/UVB filters protect against sun exposure for perfectly air-dried strands sans any heat.
Infused with nourishing “T-Essentials” derived from 150 of the brand’s baby green tea leaves, this light-as-air fluid packs a hydrating punch similar to a rich cream while boosting firmness and radiance with help from natural antioxidants and nutrients.Launched April 2017.
While they look like the original Chubby Sticks, there’s a flirty spin behind every twist of the silver base: The formula is a liquid, high-shine gloss instead of a crayon, and it delivers deep moisture to dry lips for hours with the prettiest pink colorwave.Launched April 2017.
Tom Ford Sole Di Positano ($225)
Inspired by the Italian coast, notes of citrus—predominantly orange, lemon and mandarin—combine with sandalwood and jasmine in the newest offering from Tom Ford that screams sunshine and romance.Launched April 2017.
This limited edition set of full-size vegan brushes is complete with a foundation, contour, powder, blending, and shading brush to make applying your makeup more fun—and whimsical—than ever.Launched April 2017.
From the makers of the picture-perfect line of masks comes the newest makeup setting spray designed to lock in your look and add a hint of radiance in seconds. Plus, it’s infused with green, white and red teas along with charged waters and caffeine to energize and wake up skin, too.Launched April 2017.
STELLAR Cosmic Blush ($25)
Straight from one of the newest brands to hit Sephora are these long-wearing blushes we can’t get enough of. If the hues look too intense for you in the packaging, don’t worry—once applied to your cheekbones, all that’s left is a gorgeous, flattering wash of color that makes them pop, plus a sheer hint of shimmer to highlight your features.Launched April 2017.
Almost too pretty to use, this spray-on body oil instantly softens skin and leaves behind a slight scent of Bronze Goddess and a sexy peak-of-summer glow.Launched April 2017.
Vitamin C and collagen amino acids work in unison to banish tired, aging eyes for good in this sleek, comforting cream. Designed to be used both morning and night, dark circles, fine lines and imperfections are all drastically improved and plumped for a brighter look around the clock.Launched April 2017.
Think of these glosses as a topcoat for your lips: When layered on top, the sheer yet iridescent gloss creates a cosmic, oil-slick effect that can’t be replicated. When worn on bare lips, it also creates a stunning opalescent sheen that matches every outfit.Launched April 2017.
Rahua Color Full Shampoo and Conditioner ($38—$40)
We’ve seen our fair share of color-preserving shampoos and conditioners, but what makes this duo unique is that it’s plant-derived—meaning even less damage plus extra vibrancy and softness thanks to rahua oil and Amazonian minerals.Launched April 2017.
