Every summer, brands begin to release a host of new beauty products and collections to consumers. From new eyeshadow palettes, to tan to anything that will make your summer beauty regime a little easier.
We all know the heat can be a killer at this time of year. Trying to keep your tan from going patchy, keep makeup from sliding off your face and somehow stay smelling good whilst sweating your way through the day can be tough.
Here are some of the items that have caught my attention over the past few weeks that are perfect for summer.
COLAB Dry Shampoo
If your like me and suffer from sweaty hair in the summer then dry shampoo will be a lifesaver for you. I spray this in my hair in the morning and again if I need it during the day to help keep my hair looking fresh. I find with having long hair the back of my neck gets sweaty if my hair is down so I’ll always carry a mini bottle of dry shampoo with me now if it’s any way warm outside.
Urban Decay Born To Run Palette
This is so different to Urban Decay’s usual eyeshadow palette layout, when I first seen a picture I didn’t realise it was UD! The Born To Run palette has 21 shades ranging from colourful shimmers to matte neutrals. This would be a perfect palette for taking away with you on holiday as you will get so many different looks out of this. It launches officially on 28th June.
Lunar Beauty Life’s A Drag Palette
I actually really like the look of this palette. It had a perfect mix of neutral shades along with some great pops of colour. You have the best of both world’s with this and it is so different to any other palettes out there at the moment. You can buy it from lunarbeauty.com for $45 and pay the $20 shipping or pick it up on beautybay.com which will definitely work out cheaper and you won’t get hit with customs taxes.
Becca Be A Light Face Palette
This is a stunning face palette for summer which features the brand’s new Sheer Glow Filter Powder in four flawless finishes (Brighten, Blur, Contour and Blush). The powders give a sheer coverage and help to minimize imperfections and even skin tone for a flawless summer glow. It comes in Medium and Dark and I’ve already ordered mine from cultbeauty.co.uk.
Primark Beauty Pure Collection
Primark have some great new products being added to their makeup line this Summer with one of my favourites being the Pure collection. This range includes makeup applicators, beauty blenders, highlighters, face and eye palettes and more. What caught my eye was of course the gorgeous highlighter pans which are so similar to Fenty beauty! Also the liquid highlighter drops are amazing (see feature image)! You can see swatches of both of these in my Beauty highlights on my Instagram (@makeitupmegan).
Charlotte Tilbury Bar of Gold Trio
This gorgeous highlighter palette will contain the Charlotte Tilbury original gold shade that offers “an instantly glamorizing touch of light”. Also in the palette is a new Rose Gold hue which gives a rosy blush, and Gold Bullion, which has a bronzing effect. The palette launches 9 July at charlottetilbury.com for £49.
Kylie Cosmetics Sorta Sweet Lip Trio
I really like Kylie Cosmetics, the products are really good quality and worth the price tag in my view. I love Kylie’s liquid lipsticks so I’m dying to get the Sorta Sweet Trio to try out. It has three different liquid lipsticks in different formulations. It features Maliboo Matte Liquid Lipstick which is a light cool-tone nude. Glitz Super Glitter Gloss, a super shimmering peachy gold and Boy Bye Velvet Liquid Lipstick, a pinky mauve. The trio is normally $48 but is down to $36 in the current sale on KylieCosmetics.com.
Fenty Beauty Moroccan Spice Palette
Rihanna has just announced the release of a new limited edition eyeshadow palette coming to Fenty Beauty. The Moroccan Spice Palette launches on July 6 and features the same design as last years palette but with all new shades. The palette contains a mix of mattes, shimmers and metallic’s with neutral and bold colours to create so many different looks with. You can get your hands on this from July 6th for $59 on fentybeauty.com.
Smashbox Limited Edition Photo Finish Primer Waters
Face sprays are a must during the heat of the Summer and Smashbox have just released 3 new setting sprays in limited edition scents. These 3-in-1 face primer and setting sprays hydrate, prep and refresh skin. The scents are Centering Citrus which neutralizes negativity with a blend of balancing blood orange and grounding grapefruit. Serene Greens, keeps you calm with a blend of cooling cucumber and mellow melon. So-Chill Coconut, gives you “resting beach face” with a relaxing blend of coconut and vanilla that’s basically vacay in a bottle. They are available now for a limited time from Smashbox.co.uk for £22.
Let me know in the comments or on my Instagram or Facebook if you plan on picking any of these up! Since writing this post I’ve already gone and bought the Becca Be A Light Palette so will keep you updated on what I think of it.
