The most exciting beauty products are the ones that challenge what you already know and love. From a liquid eyeliner that bends to give you the perfect wing to a solid toner that delivers a flawless complexion on the go, these innovative beauty products are all game-changers. Keep reading for ten revolutionary products you need to try.
First Aid Beauty Hello FAB 3 in 1 Superfruit Color Correcting Cushion: Both cushion compacts and color correctors have been all the rage for the past year or so, and this compact by First Aid Beauty combines both for a one-of-a-kind super-product. There are three different shades swirled into the compact: green for redness, pink to help even skin tone and purple to reduce dullness. When mixed together, the weightless compact will reduce or eliminate nearly every common skin concern. Use the included puff to gently pat on the formula – it’s extremely buildable, so you can keep applying until you reach the desired coverage. Top it off with foundation for a flawless look. ($36)
Dr. Jart+ Bright Lover Rubber Mask: Everyone loves a good face mask – it feels like a luxe spa treatment that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home. This rubber one from Dr. Jart+ is a two-step solution, but it actually has less mess and cleanup than the standard sheet mask. After cleansing your face, massage the serum included in the packet onto your skin. Then, place the rubber mask on your face. The rubbery material will allow for better absorption of the serum. Leave it on for anywhere between fifteen and forty minutes. If there’s any extra serum after the treatment, you can massage it into your neck and arms. Your skin will look visibly brighter and refreshed. ($12)
Milk Makeup Matcha Toner: This unique skincare product from Milk – it’s the first solid toner on the market – is a necessary addition to your routine. Use post-cleansing, pre-moisturizing to purify pores and smooth your skin’s texture and tone. It’s packed with nourishing ingredients like matcha green tea, kombucha and witch hazel to tighten pores and energize skin. The TSA-friendly solid formula makes it perfect for bringing on long flights, or tossing in your bag any time you want to absorb excess oil. ($26)
NARS Liquid Blush: There’s arguably no blush in the world that has a more devoted following than NARS’ Orgasm Blush, so you can imagine our excitement when we heard the brand was releasing a liquid version of the iconic shade! Just in time for the sweltering summer heat, NARS has launched Orgasm Liquid Blush. It’s the same golden-pink shade we all know and love, in a new formulation. Apply a drop onto the apples of your cheeks, and simply pat in with either your fingers or makeup sponge. It’s also available in the shades Torrid, Luster and Dolce Vita. ($30)
Cutex BB Nail Concealer: The name says it all – this ingenious polish by Cutex is essentially a BB cream for your nails. Use the sheer, silky polish during those weeks where your nails need some recovery time – ideally post a two-week-long gel manicure. It conceals any minor imperfections on your nails, while the blend of oils strengthen and nourish your nails back to top form. ($4.59)
Sephora Collection Dry Clean Instant Dry Brush Cleaner Spray: Half of the struggle of cleaning your makeup brushes is waiting hours for them to dry. Think of this innovative spray by Sephora as a dry shampoo for your brushes. Spritz three times directly onto the bristles, sweep onto a tissue and your brush will be good as new! While you should give your brushes a thorough cleaning at least once a month, this is a great ‘in-between’ refresh. ($14)
Lancome Grandiose Bendable Liquid Eyeliner: If you can never seem to get your winged liner just right, give this liquid eyeliner by Lancome a try. The wand bends at a 35-degree angle to increase control and precision. The unique angle also allows you to get as close as possible to your lash line, while the precise tip will leave the end of your wing clean and perfect. Available in three hues – black, brown and a rich sapphire – the formula dries down to a smudge-proof matte that will last all night. ($32)
Charlotte Tilbury Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask: This mess-free sheet mask by the one and only Charlotte Tilbury is as high-performing as it is creative. The ingredients (which will leave your skin visibly smoother, brighter and firmer) are only released once you’ve put on the mask and massaged your face for thirty seconds. The mask features ‘ear loops’ which keep it in place as you run around doing other errands. Bonus: the mask can be reused up to three times! ($22)
Hourglass The Curator Lash Instrument: Art meets function with this unique lash instrument from Hourglass. The tool features a stainless steel tip and high-precision ‘threading’ on the wand, which allows for beautiful, evenly coated, defined lashes every time. The unique bristle-and-brush-free design gets to the very base of the lash line, without any clumping, to create a natural tight-lined look. It’s perfect for coating hard-to-reach lashes. ($78)
ME Clear Anti-Blemish Device: This handheld ‘zit zapper’ is for those times where you need a blemish gone fast. It combines blue LED light, sonic vibration and a soothing warm sensation to deliver visible results. You simply hold the tool to the mark for two minutes, up to three times a day (make sure your skin is clean and makeup-free). The spot should be completely gone by the end of the day. ($39)
