Beauty Jobs – Hot Right Now: 10 Product Launches We’re Excited About This Summer

Only one word comes to mind when Beauty Nine to Five thinks of the latest launches for this summer: fuego! Beauty brands have stepped up to the plate this season with popping highlights, ultra-pigmented shadows, and even high-tech skin care solutions (blue light, anyone?). Stay on top of the latest makeup, skincare, hair and body innovations coming your way this season.

Get your wish lists ready — we’re sure you’ll need to write a few things down. Read on below for the top 10 summer product launches to get excited for!

Feeling Hot Hot Hot

Let’s be honest, you already own at least one of the palettes from the game changing Urban Decay Naked collection, right? Make room on your vanity for Naked Heat — the latest addition that mixes matte and shimmer shades for endless steamy possibilities. Bonus: the collection includes two eyeliners and lipsticks that complement the palette for a completely hot look.

Ultimate Beauty Shield

Wherever beauty is involved, we’re in there like skincare! ELF takes affordable sun protection to the next realm by releasing seven items in their brand new Beauty Shield collection. Get your hands on a Vitamin C serum, moisturizer with SPF 50 and a facial brush (among four other items) for under $25 each. Trust us, you’re not dreaming!

Glimmer, Shimmer, Shine
Summertime fine looks tend to move away from matte finishes and embrace the glimmer, shimmer and shine of hotter temps. Cali-based brand Jouer Cosmetics launched their playful, limited edition Skinny Dip collection that includes a palette of six stunning ultra foil shadows that can be used wet,  as highlighters and glosses and even a fruity lipstick shade. Deets on where to check out the brand are below!

More than Just a Spin Brush

The latest release from Clarisonic has beauty gurus all over the Internet testing out its seamless blending claims. The Sonic Foundation Brush Head works with all Clarisonic devices and promises to deliver flawless, airbrushed results with any cream-based product. Test it out with foundations, concealers, contours and cream blushes or highlighters.

Matcha for the Face

In case you’ve ever wanted your daily toner in stick form, Milk Makeup has got you covered. The new matcha Toner, formulated with interesting ingredients like real matcha green tea, organic cactus elixir and kombucha, immediately cools and refreshes skin after cleansing. This innovative little product is perfect for summer travels as it was designed to pass all TSA carry-on requirements!

The Most Poppin’ Highlighter of the Summer

MUA Huda Kattan was able to build a flourishing makeup empire based off her online presence. The much anticipated release of her latest 3D highlighter palettes in Pink Sands for fair to medium skin tones or Golden Sands to medium to deep tones are just in time for summer. The swatches above should help determine which one is right for you.

Green Clean Queen

If you’re a green beauty lover, you know how hard it can be find a deodorant with natural, plant-based ingredients that actually works. Enter Tarte’s Clean Queen Vegan Deodorant just in time for the inevitable sticky, humid weather that’s on the horizon. Based off of plant-starches, aloe and topped with a delicious vanilla scent, you can count on this deodorant all summer long. Apply again mid-day to ensure your pits stay fresh!

Zap Away the Blues

Phototherapy for acne breakouts is nothing new — it’s just the use of an LED light to penetrate layers of skin and literally zap acne-causing bacteria at the source. What is new, however, is Foreo’s Espada Acne-Clearing Blue Light Pen that specifically targets your breakout at a fraction of the price of a doctor’s visit. If you find you break out more often in the summer or have been looking for a quick solution this may be worth a look.

Flower Power Sheet Masks

Burning heat, sweat and humidity can wreak havoc on just about anyone’s complexion. Take 15 min per week to recover with bamboo sheet masks that soothe, hydrate, soften, boost radiance, refresh or nourish. Origin’s Flower Fusion Sheet Masks are infused with essential plant oils that promise to keep you fresh faced all summer long.

J’adore Essie

Inspired by French bakeries, Essie’s Summer 2017 collection is the versatile shade range you need. From pastels to metallics to bright pops of red, you have a full range of flattering shades to match your summer 17’ mood. For ideas on how to actually wear each colour, check out Essie’s IG page for tons of nail art inspo.

Although in no particular order, these are Beauty Nine to Five’s top 10 beauty launches we’re excited for this summer! Did we miss any major launches? List them below.
