13 New Beauty Products to Try in 2015, Because the New Year is the Best Excuse for New Lipstick

With a new year comes tons of new beauty product launches from almost every beauty brand, whether at the drugstore or at Sephora. Hopefully one of your 2015 resolutions wasn't "Spend less money on makeup," because a lot of these launches are going to be hard to resist. Some of these are long-awaited necessities (yes I will take another lip crayon thank you very much), while others will fill a hole in your makeup bag that you didn't even know you had ('sup, mud cleanser?).

Here are a dozen of the most exciting new beauty products coming up in 2015, from a brand-new skin care line from the most wallet-friendly beauty brand to several gorgeous palettes that are worth the splurge. Some of these are already available, so hurry up and get clicking.

Burt's Bees Lip Crayons

Finally, Burt’s Bees has jumped on the lip crayon train. If you’re a fan of Revlon Matte Balms and Clinique Chubby Sticks, you’ll love these. They’ll give you a matte yet creamy lip, without any added fragrance and with hydrating ingredients such as Shea butter and jojoba oil. Best of all, they come in six gorgeous shades.


Stila Convertible Color Palette

Better snap up this limited edition palette before it’s gone! The 12 gorgeous shades can be used for lip color or as a creamy blush.


Four New Too Faced Melted Lipstick Shades

Too Faced just announced four new shades in their beloved Melted Liquified Longwear Lipstick line earlier this week: Jelly Donut, Melon, Chihuahua, and Villain. Villain in particular is a gorgeous dark purple.


Tarte Tartelette Amazonian Clay Matte Palette

This new palette has 12 brand-new, all-matte shades. The matte neutrals make it perfect for wearing to work, while the darker shades can transition your beauty look for a night out.


Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum

This came out in 2014 but is still relatively new. If you haven’t gotten your hands on this serum yet, plan on it for 2015. This hypoallergenic serum promises to soften the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin’s hydration in four weeks (at a fraction of the cost of higher-end serums).


GLAMGLOW Cleansers

How can you not be curious to try these when they’re marketed as the first “Mud to Foam” cleansers? Two out of these four new cleansers are out already: the SUPERCLEANSE Daily Clearing Cleanser for problem skin and the THIRSTYCLEANSE Daily Hydrating Cleanser for dry skin. YOUTHCLEANSE will be out in March 2015 and POWERCLEANSE will be out in May 2015, so mark your calendars.


Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick

Anastasia Beverly Hills is mostly known for its amazing brow products, but now they’ve entered the lipstick game with confidence. These come in 20 matte shades that promise to deliver full pigment with one sweep of the brush.


Maybelline Color Sensational Rebel Bloom

Maybelline just released their amazing Creamy Matte lipsticks in 2014, but hopefully you didn’t spend all of your money on those because now they’ve churned out another new lip line. These ten shades are all creamy pastels, just in time for spring.


Real Techniques Bold Metals Brushes

Real Techniques makes great, budget-friendly makeup brushes and their gorgeous new line is no exception. These are seven synthetic brushes: gold for the base, silver for the eyes, and bronze for the finish.


NYX Cosmetics 3C Conceal Correct Contour Palette

This may become the ultimate concealer palette available at the drugstore. There are three different palettes for Light, Medium, and Deep skin tones, and each palette has six shades. You can use this for literally everything: highlighting and contouring, concealing blemishes and under-eye circles, and even blush.

$12, starting Spring 2015

Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette

It won’t be easy to get your hands on this new palette (right now only VIB Rouge can purchase the entire range early at Sephora) but it’s worth trying. Not only are the five different shades in each of the seven palettes totally gorgeous on the eyes, but the entire thing is a work of art on its own.

Available now in Infinity at, $58; available now in Graphite (pictured) and six other shades for VIB Rouge only at, $58

e.l.f. Skin Care

e.l.f. Cosmetics has always been a dependable (and often downright awesome) budget option for makeup. Now we can rejoice at the news that they are launching an entire wallet-friendly skin care line in 2015. The line includes a soothing serum, a daily moisturizer, eye cream, face wipes, and more.

$4-$12, starting Spring 2015

NARS All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

The liquid version of NARS’ most popular foundation claims to provide full coverage with just one drop… and it actually does. Plus, it’s got a dewy, moisturizing finish that’s especially perfect for the winter months, and comes in 20 shades.
