Drop Everything: Kosas Is Having a Massive Site-Wide Sale
Coming off some amazing Memorial Day sales, you may be thinking there's nothing left to score on—well, that was until Kosas announced its Summer Sale. Now through June 10, the clean beauty brand is offering 20 percent off site-wide (um hello, PureWow favorites, Air Brow and LipFuel). In other words, our wallet is about to take another major hit. Here are 13 products we'll be adding to our cart ASAP—we suggest you do the same.
1. Tinted Face Oil Foundation
Ever since this weightless foundation came out two years ago, PureWow editors and readers have been obsessed. “It's super lightweight and I can't feel it on my skin at all. Plus it gives that blurred, Instagram pretty filter effect IRL. I mix a few drops with an illuminating primer and it leaves the dewiest, most natural glow. I'm a fan for life,” says beauty-lover Brianna Lapolla. Psst, the formula is infused with six active botanicals, so you can trust it provides coverage and skincare.
2. The Sun Show Bronzer
Want a glowy and bronze look for the summer? Say no more. That’s exactly what the makeup geniuses at Kosas had in mind when they developed this baked bronzer. “It doesn’t just make me look sun kissed. It makes me look lit from within!” says one enthusiastic reviewer. We’re sold.
3. Wet Lip Oil Gloss
Finally, a lip gloss that isn’t sticky or clumpy but happens to be ultra nourishing. Kosas’s Wet Lip Oil Gloss contains ultra-hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid, peptides, shea butter and avocado oil, which work to plump and hydrate your pout—while providing shine, of course. In fact, one editor says it moisturizes so well, she’ll use it in place of a balm when her lips need a little TLC.
4. Revealer Concealer
Finding a clean concealer that actually performs is a tall order. Which is why we had 10 women test it to see whether or not it lived up to its claims. Spoiler alert: It totally did. Our testers said it “blends like a dream,” “lasts throughout the day,” and “doesn’t crease at all.” And with 16 buildable shades, you’re bound to find one that works for you.
5. 10-Second Eye Shadow
After almost five months of social distancing, our makeup routine is practically nonexistent. Which means there’s absolutely no way we’re breaking out our eyeshadow palette on the rare occasion that we do go out in public. Thankfully, Kosas has this 10-Second Eyeshadow option that, as the name implies, is super easy to swipe on and head out the door. It’s crease-resistant and quick-drying, too.
6. Color & Light Palette
In the summer, we’re all about dewy, natural makeup, so this cream blush and highlighter duo is one of our go-tos. We’re partial to the Velvet Melon compact, which includes a peachy pink blush and bronze highlighter that makes it look like we just spent the day in the sun. Even if we blend it on with our fingers.
7. Kosasport Lipfuel
Want a lip balm that leaves your lips feeling hydrated even after it wears off? Yeah, Kosasport Lipfuel does that. It’s chock full of active skincare ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and konjac root to smooth, repair and plump. “My lips stay hydrated for hours without reapplying,” confirms Lapolla.
8. Weightless Lip Color
The Weightless Lip Color in Thrillist is one of beauty director Jenny Jin’s all-time favorite lipsticks, so you know it has to be good. “It’s the perfect poppy red: The texture is creamy, the color payoff is incredible and the ingredient list is clean. I truly enjoy wearing it,” she says. BRB while we pick up one in every shade.
9. Air Brow - Tinted
If you're not a fan of pencils but still want a little boost of color, the Air Brow is made for you. The clean, vegan formula has plant-based microfibers that add volume to your brows, making them look healthy and fluffy. The formula also has castor oil and Panthenol Pro-Vitamin B5, in addition to Biotinyl Tripeptide, which encourages fuller hair growth.
10. The Big Clean Mascara
Clean mascaras are hard to come by. This one not only volumizes, lengthens, and curls every lash—it also nourishes them, making your lashes stronger and healthier over time. (We know, add to cart).
11. Brow Pop
This double-whammy pencil has a thicker side for tackling bare spots closest to your nose bridge and a thinner side for precise, feathered strokes to add more shape to your brows. (BONUS: both sides are infused with castor oil and Panthenol Pro-Vitamin B5, which helps moisturize and revive those sparse spots).
12. Cloud Set Setting Powder
A setting powder that makes your skin look angelic? We want it. Plus, it comes in tons of shades, so you're bound to find one that effortlessly blends into your skin. Oh, and it's lightweight and won't make your face feel cakey.
13. Chemistry Deodorant
When the summertime comes around, deodorant is more important than ever. Reviewers love this stain-free serum roll-on that soothes skin, visibly brightens, and even helps with ingrown hairs. One reviewer said it is the "best non-aluminum deodorant, hands down."
