7 Fun New Things to Buy at Sephora Right Now
It’s a (very) good month for Sephora lovers. With new launches from many of our favorite brands, it’s hard to pick just one (or five) to try. Alas, for the sake of our wallet, we did our very best to whittle it down to this list of seven.
Fresh Sugar Lip Caramel Hydrating Balm
Given that its tinted lip balms are of beauty legend, it should come as no surprise that the brand’s latest launch—a cushy pot of caramel-flavored balm—lives up to the same high standards. We recently tried this on our dry, peeling pout (courtesy of two cross-country flights and a sunburn) and it immediately smoothed things over.
Milk Makeup Blur Liquid Matte Foundation
First, there was the Blur Stick. Next, there was the Blur Spray. Now, there’s Blur Foundation—and it makes your skin look even better than its predecessors. Despite its heavy pigment load, this full-coverage formula feels extremely lightweight and wears as if you have nothing on.
Milk Makeup ($40)
NARS PowerMatte Lip Pigment
Leave it to NARS to master the often-dry (and often-messy) liquid lipstick. With its creamy formula that spreads like butter and a pointed tip that makes it easy to stay within the lines, we’ve finally found the perfect red. And pink. And nude.
Ouai Memory Mist
Think of this as a souped-up hairspray. Only instead of just setting any flyaways in place, it also acts as a heat protectant, a shine serum and a style extender, thanks to special polymers in the formula. Mist it onto damp or dry strands before using a blow dryer or curling iron to lock in your style until your next shampoo.
Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara
It’s hard to pry yourself away from your favorite mascara—we know—but this colossal-sized wand is worth a try. With a rich, inky formula that coats each lash and densely packed bristles that reach every last hair, it’s already amassed over 500 fanatic reviews since its launch…just weeks ago.
Since its launch in 2002, this cult-favorite sponge has won over pretty much everyone who has ever used it. For devout fans, this limited-edition marbled blender is a must. For the uninitiated, it’s a great way to finally see what all of the hype is about.
Shiseido WASO Soft + Cushy Polisher
This whipped scrub is unlike any other we’ve tried. Whereas many formulas tend to be a tad scratchy, this one uses tiny soybean granules to gently lift off dead cells and clear up excess oil, making it the perfect exfoliator for, well, everyone—even sensitive-skin types.
