After spending a bit too much over the holidays, many people put themselves into a self-imposed “No Buy” to cool off for a little while. I say this with some firsthand knowledge…
But now as we’re bringing January to a close, maybe your vanity is looking a little sad without any new products to brighten it? We can help with that!
Without further ado, here are Five New Beauty Products You Need Right Now.
UD x Kristen Leanne collection
What: A colorful Urban Decay collection developed with the also colorful influencer Kristen Leanne.
Why: Not only does this collection defy the boring brown standard that we ended 2017 with, but the whimsical colors and next level packaging make it a fun and glamorous way to amp up your makeup routine.
The launch contains two eye shadow palettes, one highlighter palette, three lipsticks, three liquid lipsticks and one single shadow. We think you can’t go wrong with ANY of it. BUT, the UD x Kristen Leanne Kaleidoscope Dream Eyeshadow Palette ($39) is ESPECIALLY epic. Grab it before Valentine’s Day to take your “date night” eye up a notch.
Chanel Poudre À Lèvres Lip Balm and Powder Duo
What: The limited edition must have Chanel Poudre À Lèvres Lip Balm and Powder Duo ($37).
Why: A DIY Lover’s dream, available in 3 shades. The compact holds a clear, hydrating balm and a powder that allows you to adjust the intensity of your lip color. Once you have the balm on, you could evenly blend just a touch of powder for a wash, go for a ombre effect or layer the powder over your whole lip for drama. And really, Chanel truly can’t disappoint.
Where to Buy: Chanel
Neogen Dermalogy Green Tea Real Fresh Foam Cleanser
What: A Green Tea Foam Cleanser from affordable K-Beauty brand Neogen Dermalogy ($19).
Why: A wonderfully hydrating and soothing foam cleanser with fermented green tea extract to brighten and hydrate skin. This product covers ALL the bases; it’s gentle, it foams, it’s SO moisturizing, almost like a foam/oil hybrid. To say our editor Stef is obsessed is an understatement (“How does it manage be SO creamy?!”) Plus, you can’t beat that price point.
Where to Buy: Sephora
FENTY Beauty Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick
What: The latest from Rihanna’s FENTY Beauty, the Mattemoiselle Plush Matte Lipstick.
Why: With 14 shades to choose from, (from Saw-C, a pure tangerine, to One Of The Boyz, bright lilac ) there is a color for everyone AND every occasion. Pair that with the fact that it is a an uber-soft matte finish and rich, bold pigment and it will be the only lip you need this season. Added bonus? Spanked is a dupe for the *forever sold out* Kat Von D OG Lolita!
SEPHORA COLLECTION: J. Goldcrown Bleeding Hearts The Universalist Makeup Bag
What: A heart-covered bag collab between Sephora and Love Wall artist James Goldcrown.
Why: Finding the perfect makeup bag is almost as difficult as finding a spot to park in front of your local juice bar! But Sephora’s line makes it much easier. The Universalist is their top level option and an extremely versatile bag. And this collaboration with the famous Love Wall artist James Goldcrown not only assures you travel well, but you also look cute doing it. It has a lot of amazing functions like labeled compartments and a brush holder, making 2018 your most organized year.
