29 August 2018 Beauty Product Launches That Will Help You Transition To Fall
The days are getting shorter, the temperatures are beginning to drop, and the thirst for pumpkin spice lattes and sweater weather is becoming more and more real as the beginning of September fast approaches. But don't cry because summer is almost over — smile because August's beauty launches were epically abundant. There was definitely no shortage of new makeup and skin care products in July, but August's offerings were arguably more plentiful and extremely exciting. Perhaps it's because we are all more than ready to start transitioning our routines to fall — think: more hydrating creams and serums, deeper lipstick hues, and richer eyeshadow palettes. Summer's dewy and light makeup looks were great, but most beauty lovers would admit that fall beauty is where it's at. And while we're not quite there just yet, we're making our way to fall beautifully with these 29 new products.
Because you may have been on vacation (or at the very least, in an "OOO" state of mind all summer long) you may have missed some of the latest launches in the beauty world. Don't fret — I've gone ahead and rounded up the best of the best product launches from August 2018 below.
Stacked Skincare Calming CBD Elixir
CBD everything is so hot right now, especially in the beauty world, and it can be difficult to tell what's real and what's a passing fad. But this latest launch from Los Angeles-based Stacked Skincare is 100 percent legit. The CBD-rich (99.6 percent, to be exact) hemp seed oil elixir can help soothe inflamed skin, encourage blemish healing, and strengthen your skin's barrier.
Supergoop Smooth and Poreless 100% Mineral Matte Screen SPF 40
Supergoop has long been known for their incredible sunscreen formulas, but this is the first time they've released one that is both tinted and leaves a soft-focus matte finish.
bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Defense Radiant Protective Veil
Concerned about all the blue light your laptop and phones emit? BareMinerals went ahead and made the first mineral-based "veil" to shield your skin from the damaging effects of blue light. If you use a computer for work (who doesn't these days?) you might want to scoop this one up.
& Other Stories Universal Dry Shampoo
The search for the perfect dry shampoo seems never-ending, but maybe — just maybe — & Other Stories has figured it out. The Swedish brand just launched an impressive hair care collection, which includes a lightweight, transparent dry shampoo formula that absorbs excess oil and can work on all hair colors. The best part? The scent. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better-smelling dry shampoo, folks.
Caudalie Vinopure Skin Perfecting Serum
Skin care lovers can name at least one Caudalie product they're obsessed with, but they might have to switch their answer to one of the French brand's newest products: the Vinopure Skin Perfecting serum. While the name of the product promises a lot, it does a lot. It's a pore-minimizing gel serum made with 100 percent natural salicylic acid to attack blackheads, pores, breakouts, and excess oil.
Kosas’ Tinted Face Oil
If you follow any beauty editors on social media, you've probably seen them Instagramming this new tinted face oil from LA-based clean beauty brand Kosas. Why? Because it's good. Like, really good. If you're looking for a hydrating tinted formula that delivers sheer, lightweight coverage, consider trying this product.
Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Brow Envy Gel
BECCA Skin Love Glaze Stick
BECCA's new Skin Love collection is all about delivering a glowy, natural-looking complexion and this highlighter stick does exactly that for your cheekbones (and wherever else you want to shine). It's made with vitamin C, ginger, a cold-pressed avocado and melon blend, and murumuru butter, so it not only looks good on, but it's also good for your skin.
Clé De Peau Beauté Radiant Corrector for Eyes
Clé de Peau's legendary concealer is undoubtedly incredible, but their new radiant corrector for eyes is arguably just as good. It's infused with skin care, so not only does it cover up dark circles, but over time, it'll improve the texture of your skin.
IGK Hair GOOD BEHAVIOR Spirulina Protein Smoothing Spray
IGK hair calls this product a "keratin treatment in a can," and while that's a pretty major claim, it's already received a bunch of five star reviews on Sephora (all of which note how the product results in smooth, frizz-free hair). It's also a heat protectant, cuts down on blow-drying time, and protects against UV rays.
T3 Twirl Trio
You've definitely heard of T3's Whirl Quartet — the white and rose gold set of four curling iron wand barrels of different sizes. Now, they've got the Twirl Trio, perfect for those who prefer a curling iron with a clip. You can easily switch them out depending on what curl size you're going for, which means more looks and also more room in your vanity. A win-win.
Too Faced Then & Now Eye Shadow Palette
Tatcha The Rice Polish Foaming Enzyme Powder
Tatcha's best-selling foamy rice exfoliant now comes in three new formulas: Gentle (a nourishing choice for dry skin), Calming (for irritated skin), and Deep (for oily, combination skin). They all have specific active ingredients tailored to each skin type, but all work to get rid of dirt and dead skin cells to expose a smooth, polished complexion.
Kiehl’s Youth Dose Eye Treatment
Milk Makeup Blur + Set Matte Loose Setting Powder
Milk Makeup's got a new, lightweight setting powder that will cut shine, but not glow, and create a soft-focus, matte effect. If you're looking for some feedback, know that it's got nearly 300 four and a half star reviews on Sephora since launching earlier this month. Not too shabby.
Benefit Brow Contour Pro
Just when you thought Gimme Brow or Ka-Brow was good enough for your brows, Benefit Cosmetics went ahead and created an innovative four-in-one brow pencil that you won't be able to live without once you start using it. It's like those four-color pens from your school days, but instead of ink, it features a light brow cream, a darker shade, a concealer-type shade, and a highlighter (aka everything you need to create the perfect IG eyebrow).
Buxom Pillow Pout Creamy Plumping Lip Powder
Shiseido Ultimate Sun Protection Lotion WetForce SPF 50+
Shiseido's popular sunscreen just got a new formula update! Not only is it more sheer, it also features WetForce technology, meaning the more you sweat (or the more time you spend in the ocean or the pool), the stronger your sunscreen protection will be.
Lancôme L'Absolu Rouge x Camila Coelho
Lancôme has teamed up with Brazilian fashion and beauty influencer Camila Coehlo on a gorgeous, limited-edition collection of 10 creamy lipsticks (both in matte and satin finishes). Each one features a lip-shaped bullet in red and gold packaging — how chic!
Murad Revitalixir Recovery Serum
DevaCurl Super Stretch
Curly-haired girls and guys, rejoice — DevaCurl has a brand new product that promises to put an end to crunchy strands or shrinkage. Super Stretch is a curl elongating styler made with hair-nourishing ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter, and aloe. It'll lengthen your curls while also delivering shine and hold. <Insert praise hands emoji here>
Algenist ALIVE Prebiotic Balancing Mask
Are you looking for an Instagrammable mask that also delivers results? Algenist's new color-morphing mask is made with a prebiotic from algae and a probiotic to balance your skin's natural surface ecosystem. When you put it on, it'll change from mint green to pink, all while detoxing, balancing, and hydrating your skin.
Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer
Looking for another way to incorporate collagen into your life? Vital Proteins has a new coconut creamer that's made with 10 grams of collagen peptides sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine. A creamy latte that's good for your skin? Sign me up!
Peach & Lily KBeauty Rescue Balm
Revlon Kiss Cushion Lip Tint
It seems like cushion lipstick applicators are all the rage right now, but Revlon's new Kiss Cushion Lip Tint is as good as it gets. It goes on like a stain, but feels like a balm and is infused with coconut oil so your lips will look and feel pillowy soft. The best part? It's less than $6 a pop.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Liquid Concealer
Charlotte Tilbury's latest magical innovation comes in the form of a concealer that works to reduce the appearance of dark circles, pigmentation, redness, and blemishes. It's full coverage, water-resistant, and promises to last up to fifteen hours. Oh, and it has Persian silk tree bark extract that will "give the illusion of a lifted upper eyelid." Like I said — magic.
Odacité Aventurine Kiss Lip Serum
This is no ordinary lip balm. This lip serum from Odacité works to plump your lips and prevent dryness at the same time with its antioxidants, vitamin C, and botanical oil ingredients. What's even cooler is that it features an adventurine crystal applicator, which is a stone that is known for bringing good luck and prosperity.
RealHer Vegan Lip Liner
These new vegan lip liners from RealHer (a new makeup brand dedicated to empowering women) are highly pigmented and will help your lipstick from bleeding. Plus, each liner is named after an affirmation, like "I Am Positive" (a bright pink) and "I Am Everything" (a burnt orange).
GLAMGLOW STARPOTION Liquid Charcoal Clarifying Oil
GLAMGLOW has ventured out of the mask world to deliver its first clarifying facial oil made with charcoal, turmeric, salicylic acid, and aloe to detox your skin while also protecting it from pollution. It'll go on black, but turn clear after smoothing it onto your skin.
