11 Beauty Products We’re Coveting This August
The new hair, makeup and skincare products we’re swooning over this month.
1/11© Charlotte TilburyThe Charlotte Tilbury Bar of Gold Highlighter Palette ($75) offers the perfect amount of glow-y sheen without heavy sparkle. We love the buildable intensity that doesn't accentuate the look of pores. Our tip: use it as highlighter, blush and eyeshadow—even dab some on top of your lipstick as a shiny topper.
LUS Brands Love Ur Curls© LUS BrandsSahar Saidi, the founder of the Canadian Y Combinator-backed hair company LUS Brands, which stands for Love Ur Self, was tired of the amount of product that she was purchasing—and constantly running out of—without being able to achieve the style she wanted from her curly hair. So she made her own line, and it's bomb. If you have wavy, curly or coily hair, Love Ur Curls shampoo, conditioner and all-in-one treatment are a must try. ($61 for all three)
Esthederm Eau Cellulaire Mist© EsthedermUniversal truth: Beauty editors love a facial mist. Hylauronic-acid rich Esthederm Eau Cellulaire Mist ($29) is a good refresh at any point during the day. It's super-fine mist means your skin feels hydrated without feeling drenched.
Consonant Skincare HydraExtreme© Consonant SkincareConsonant HydrExtreme ($72) is not a new launch, but with the opening of the Canadian brand's new Queen St. store in Toronto, we thought it was time to revisit this hydrating skincare staple. It only has two ingredients (a rarity in the skincare realm): Cassia Angustifolia Seed Polysaccharide and Vegetable Glycerine.
Voir She's Like the Wind Dry Shampoo & Conditioner© VoirDry shampoo has become a pretty necessary step within our beauty routines. The only downsides to the oil-absorber? The gritty texture and the white cast it can give your hair. With Voir She's Like the Wind Dry Shampoo & Conditioner ($25) we have neither of those issues. Plus, we love the aerosol-free pump.
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Italian Zest© Dolce & GabbanaA universally beloved scent in our office; it smells like summer in a bottle. Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Italian Zest, ($92 for 100 mL)
Lanolips 101 Ointment Multi-Balm Coconutter© LanolipsThis yummy new coconut-scented formula goes on so thick it almost looks like you're wearing the most hydrating lipgloss of your life. Lanolips 101 Ointment Multi-Balm Coconutter ($19)
Benefit Hello Happy Soft Blue Foundations© Benefit Cosmetics
If cute packaging wasn't enough of a reason to buy this product, the formulation sure is. It has buildable light to medium coverage and a luminous finish. Benefit Hello Happy Soft Blur Foundation ($38)
Aesop Montreal Kit
Whether you're headed to Montreal or Monaco, this travel kit gives you everything you need to take care of your hair and skin while away from home. From shampoo to body cleanser to a hydrating face mask, Aesop has you covered. Aesop Montreal Kit ($99)
Oxygenetix Foundation© Oxygenetix
Oxygentix Foundation ($85.83) is a great option for those with acne or acne-prone skin types. It's a full coverage formula that doesn't feel suffocating on skin.
GlamGlow Instamud© GlamGlow
This 60-second pore-refining treatment quickly leaves your skin feeling smooth and taunt. It has a relaxing cooling effect and, even though it's only on for one minute, you can physically feel everything lifting. Onwards and upwards, as they say. GlamGlow Instamud ($53)
