15 July 2017 Beauty Launches You'll Want To Get Your Hands On ASAP
Temperatures are on the rise, and so are the July 2017 beauty launches taking over makeup counters and social media. The summer season has already graced beauty fanatics with a killer collaboration between Jaclyn Hill and Morphe, the launch of KKW Beauty contour kits by Kim Kardashian West, and so much more. You'd think the momentum would slow down come July, but that's far from the case. Don't wipe your drool just yet, because July's soon-to-be released products are guaranteed to put beauty lovers in another trance.
As exciting as it is to hear about new products joining a brand's family, launches can be beyond frustrating. Product teases just leave you wanting more, making true makeup addicts extremely anxious to get their hands on a shiny, new piece of beauty merch. So, a month's worth of patience will be key, here!
Some of July's newbies arrived on virtual shelves in late June, and will finally take their rightful place in stores. Others are making their debut for the very first time throughout the coming weeks. Either way, have your calendars marked. You won't want to miss a single thing, because chances are these 15 summer releases will likely sell out lickety-split.
1. ColourPop Nail Polish
ColourPop has been on a roll and it doesn't look like the brand is easing up. For the first time ever, the virtual retailer is releasing dreamy shades that aren't meant for the face. Going live on the brand's website on July 7 for $6 each, ColourPop is launching nail lacquers.
Mermaid and unicorn lovers, you'll want to be prepared, wallet and shipping info ready to go! These fairy shades will sell like hotcakes if ColourPop's previous launches foreshadow what's to come. Stay tuned to see if these summer mani-friendly polishes will be a hit because this is seriously monumental for the brand.
2. Marc Jacobs Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Eye Palettes
The masterminds behind Marc Jacobs Beauty have been hard at work. As of June 29, a whopping six new palettes have joined their online inventory. Inspired by Marc Jacobs' favorite fabrics, each of the Eye-Conic Multi-Finish Palettes feature four new fashion finishes: velvet, lamé, silk, and satin.
The 7-pan palettes will run for $49, and officially hit Sephora and Neiman Marcus stores some time in July. There's a palette of sultry fire tones, a collection of nudes, something for those who flock to edgy hues, and everything in between.
3. Ofra Island Time Collection
Thanks to Ofra Cosmetics, July kicked off with a bang. Their Island Time Collection debuted online on Ofra and Ulta Beauty's websites on July 2.
The collection includes three new blushes, "Mai Tai, "Bellini" and "Punch", retailing for $29 each. There's a lip trio bundle for $49.70 that features new liquid lippies, "Cocos Island", "Rio", and "Aruba". And there's just no overlooking the glitzy, new highlighter within the collection, "Bali", costing $35.
4. Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask
Tatcha ended June on a high note, launching their Violet-C Radiance Mask just in the nick of time. The creamy, rinse-off mask packed with Japanese beautyberry and two types of Vitamin C debuted online, and will officially hit Sephora stores on July 12.
An anti-aging treatment, the mask boasts AHAs from seven fruits to unveil softer, glowing skin. Vitamin C offers antioxidant protection from UV damage for a brighter, more even complexion over time, while Japanese beautyberry enhances its effectiveness at treating the skin. You can always count on Tatcha's signature trio of Japanese anti-aging superfoods— green tea, rice, and algae— to restore and maintain your skin's youthful appearance, too. Yup, this skincare gem definitely warrants a trip to Sephora soon.

6. Real Techniques Powder Bleu Collection
A brush collection inspired by blue squirrels sounds strange initially, but Real Techniques makes it looks so darn luxe.

It's the six-piece Powder Bleu collection, a future Real Techniques website exclusive.
The collection includes a powder brush for bronzer or highlighter, a soft-finishing brush for diffusing your glow, a complexion brush for liquid foundation, a large kabki for seamless blending, a shader for the best eyeshadows, and a velevty puff for setting with loose powder. There's still no word on an exact release date or prices, but you can always expect Real Techniques to deliver quality brushes for affordable prices.
