Laura Mercier Liquid Face Illuminator ($38)

Laura Mercier's coveted Face Illuminators now come in easy-to-customize liquid formulas. Whether you’re after a daytime glow or full-on glamorous look for a night out, the dropper on the waterlight highlighter makes it easy to build up your unique level of radiance without looking glittery or cakey.

Lawless Beauty Soft Matte Liquid Lipstick in Parker ($25)

Creamy, long-lasting and free of any harmful ingredients you wouldn't want near your mouth, this bright shade works on all skin tones and is the perfect mix between a punchy pink and everyday nude. 


3/14

Sigma Wicked Long Wear Eyeliner Pencil ($11)

If you've tried Sigma's Wicked Gel Liner, you know its staying power is no joke. For those of us who don't have the gift of working well with liquid or gel liners, the brand just launched the same true-black, never-smudge formula in a pencil form for all of the payoff and none of the pain. 

4/14

Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Camo Drops ($46)

If your skin needs a break from foundation, this color-correcting serum is the way to go. It goes on green, but instantly melts into a shade that's identical to your skin tone. The result: camouflaged discoloration and redness, and the perfect amount of your-skin-but-better coverage—all while letting your skin breathe.


5/14

Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate Glow Stick ($55)

Dab on both ends of this radiance-enhancing duo—one end gives skin sun-kissed color and the other highlights the cheekbones, brow bone and and clavicles in seconds—for a glow that no one will believe isn't from your trip to Mexico.

6/14

Lancôme Monsieur Big Waterproof ($25)

A waterproof mascara is a must for days spent outdoors. This newly formulated version of the brand's original Monsieur Big keeps the same lash-plumping effects it's loved for, but adds in a no-budge benefit for zero dripping, slipping or smudging in sight. 

7/14

ILIA True Skin Serum Foundation ($54)

Infused with a botanical-based serum, this complexion-correcting formula is part skin care and part makeup. Jojoba, aloe leaf, rose hip and marula oils soothe irritation and work to nix fine lines over time while the luxe foundation itself makes it seem like neither exist. 

8/14

Benefit Gold Rush Blush ($29)

If a blush that smells like vanilla and sandalwood isn't enough to sell you, the way a single swipe of this one-two-punch formula combines a natural flush with a look-at-me glow will. 

9/14

Zelens Lip Enhancer ($52)

This deeply hydrating formula boosts the natural hue of your lips for the perfect shade of spring-ready pink—no two shades are the same!—and seriously less dried-out winter lips every time you use it. 

10/14

NARS Frioul Velvet Shadow Stick ($29)

When time is of the essence, swipe this foolproof shadow stick over your lids and along your lower lashline for an eye-catching look—this limited-edition peacock shade is perfect for day or night—that only looks labor intensive. 


11/14

beautyblender Chill ($20)

PSA: If you haven’t replaced your beautyblender (or any makeup sponge) in a while, you might want to. This bright new launch is perfect to refresh your makeup bag and features the same tried-and-true material for a flawless finish.


12/14

Jouer High Pigment Pearl Lipgloss in Seychelles ($17)

An easy way to wear the glitter trend without going overboard, this warm coral shade boasts a hint of pearlescence for plumper-looking pout while jojoba and coconut oils hydrate any dryness for a silky-smooth finish. 

13/14

Cover FX Power Play Foundation ($44)

Available in 40 skin-loving shades, this liquid, medium-coverage formula blends easily and dries down to a matte finish. Even better, it stays put through workouts, high temps and mid-day oil.


14/14

Smashbox Photo Edit Eye Shadow Trio in Snap Queen ($22)

Two tastefully shimmered hues combine with a classic matte in this portable palette that's able to create a "no makeup" makeup look or full-blown smokey eye in seconds. Choose from this seasonal berry shade or one of the 15 others; there's something for every mood and skin tone.

    The Jouer lip gloss is beautiful. I don't know why every cosmetics company doesn't have a pearlescent range of shades. It's the easiest way to add dimension - aka fullness - to lips. And you don't end up looking like a glitter clown or metallic alien. Who really wants to risk eating that glitter or metal paint?
