After revealing its game-changing Platinum Rare Haute Rejuvenation Protocol last month, La Prairie is back with one of its most luxurious and sustainable launches to date—meet the new Pure Gold Collection. Inspired by the magical golden hour that descends upon the Swiss Alps, the collection includes three rejuvenating skincare formulas—a moisturizer, brightening serum, and eye cream—all of which are infused with tiny gold particles to give your complexion a subtle warm, golden glow, as well as a healthy dose of replenishing active ingredients. For the first time, La Prairie has also made each of the product’s gorgeous brushed gold cases refillable so that customers can swap out their empty formulas with new “replenishments'' without all of the unnecessary waste. If you ask us, this is luxury at its finest.
There are fragrances and then there's Acqua di Parma Bergamotto di Calabria La Spugnatura. Centered around the Calabrian bergamot fruit, this bright eau de toilette uses a rare, artisanal technique called “sponging” to manually extract the bergamot essence, making each bottle a very limited and therefore unique scent. In addition to bergamot, there are also citrusy notes of mandarin and grapefruit and traces of fresh geranium, vetiver, and cedarwood. One spritz and you’re immediately transported to the country’s idyllic citrus fields and warm, sandy shores. Consider it the Italian getaway you’ve been waiting for, but in bottle form.
If you’re a fan of Hourglass’s cult-favorite Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick, you’re going to love their latest launch. Like its complexion-perfecting predecessor, the new Vanish Blush Stick features a luscious cream-to-powder formula that’s packed with emollients, making it super easy to blend for a soft, natural-looking flush of color. Available in six buildable shades, it also comes with a triangular tip for precise application and a subtle blurring effect to help reduce the look of pores for a smoother, more even complexion.
If months of being trapped indoors and wearing protective face masks have left your complexion dull and lackluster, reach for Chantecaille’s Purifying and Exfoliating Phytoactive Solution. This innovative toning treatment is basically like a mini facial in a bottle. Using a blend of Alpha Hydroxy Acids, it gently balances oil, minimizes pores, enhances skin clarity, and provides a soft mattifying effect without drying out your skin. Thanks to microbiota balancing botanicals and red microalgae, it also helps reduce the look of redness and irritation from breakouts, making it especially useful in combating the dreaded mascne.
When you’re unwilling to sacrifice the color payoff of your lipstick for a little extra hydration, look no further than Chanel’s new Rouge Coco Bloom lip colors. This high-shine lipstick combines everything you love about an intensely pigmented liquid lipstick with the hydrating benefits of a balm, making it the perfect option for summer. Available in 20 vibrant shades, its patented smooth gliding formula also provides a soft plumping effect, giving lips a fuller appearance with a healthy dose of stick-free shine.
Tom Ford may be best known for his luxury ready-to-wear and makeup collections, but as it turns out, he’s also the purveyor of some pretty amazing skincare products. Case in point: the new Tom Ford Research Intensive Treatment Emulsion. Ultra-hydrating and soothing, this cushiony formula features the brand’s signature ingredients, including rare white porcelain cacao, energizing caffeine, and protective Gyokuro. Together with hyaluronic acid, they provide immediate and long-lasting hydration to help smooth, soothe, and minimize the look of redness for a healthier-looking complexion. Just pour a few drops onto your fingertips and gently press them onto the skin for an immediate radiance boost.
You’ve heard of personalized hair care, now meet personalized hair supplements. New from Brooklyn-based hair care company Prose, the Root Source system comes with two daily-use capsules: one universal soft gel and one customized capsule. The first helps rejuvenate and strengthen the scalp, while the second promotes fuller, healthier hair growth thanks to a medley of natural extracts, including the brand’s hero ingredient: millet seed. Together, they’ve been clinically proven to reduce hair shedding and improve hair strength, thickness, and shine in just 90 days (aka just in time for your next seasonal hair transformation).
Hair feeling dry and brittle? Try adding this luxe leave-in treatment from Hair Rituel by Sisley to your routine. Highly concentrated in plant-based extracts, proteins, vitamins, and minerals, this ultra-lightweight creme contains ionic polymers that deliver beneficial active ingredients deep within the hair fibers to help repair strands from the inside out. In addition to defending hair against the damaging effects of heat up to 230°C, it also surrounds the strands in an undetectable, ultralight protective barrier, limiting the degradation of keratin and promoting a smoother, healthier-looking finish. Another bonus: It smells incredible.
Say hello to brighter, more radiant-looking skin with Kora Organics’ new Tumeric Glow Moisturizer. The latest launch from Miranda Kerr’s superfood-based skincare line, this rich, nourishing formula targets hyperpigmentation, dullness, fine lines, and wrinkles with a blend of certified organic ingredients, including turmeric, rosehip oil, marine algae, and maracuja oils. We also love that it comes with refillable packaging for a more eco-friendly alternative.
If you’ve ever wanted to use your red light therapy mask on the rest of your body, you’re in luck. For his latest high-tech innovation, Dr. Dennis Gross has transformed his cult-favorite LED mask into a flat, moldable surface, allowing you to treat every area of your body with ease. Like the FaceWare Pro, this FDA-approved device uses a combination of red and blue LED lights that penetrate deep within the skin’s dermis to stimulate collagen production, destroy acne-causing bacteria, and ease muscle aches. Expect to see smoother, clearer skin from head-to-toe in as little as ten weeks when used daily for three minutes.
Create lush, full, flexible looks that hold their style all day with IGK’s Big Time Volume and Thickening Mousse. The nourishing plant proteins in this lightweight vegan formula work overtime to plump fine, weak hair from root to tip for a noticeable increase in volume and thickness. At the same time, its heat protectant formula works to shield the hair from damage, ensuring that your strands become stronger and healthier-looking with each use. Unlike the mousses of the past, this one also doesn’t leave behind any stiffness or sticky residue, making it ideal for those with fine or thinning hair.
Just in time for summer, RÓEN has reimagined its best-selling Kiss My Liquid Lip Balm with a new shimmer-infused formula. Formulated with moisturizing avocado and meadowfoam oils, this featherweight liquid glides on effortlessly to soothe lips as it simultaneously nourishes, regenerates, and repairs. “The best thing about [it] is that it’s a nourishing balm that looks like a gloss,” says celebrity makeup artist and RÓEN’s newly appointed Beauty Creative Director, Kate Synnott. “It’s my go-to for the red carpet as it keeps my clients’ lips hydrated and isn’t sticky.”
Step into summer with the smoothest skin imaginable thanks to Sol de Janeiro’s Bom Dia Bright Cream. Scented with rich black amber plum and vanilla woods, this brightening body cream uses vitamin C and AHAs derived from mangoes and bananas to gently exfoliate and revitalize skin for a smoother, more even-toned appearance. Suitable for all skin types, it targets everything from dullness and dryness to rough texture and dark spots, making it a must for the shorter hemlines ahead.
Good news: Crown Affair, the purveyors of our favorite luxury combs, have just launched their first dry shampoo. Formulated with Japanese persimmon powder—a natural oil absorbent and deodorizer—its loose powder formula gently absorbs oils and enriches the scalp, leaving your hair voluminous, silky soft, and refreshed. Unlike traditional aerosol products, this one also doesn’t leave behind any tackiness or grit, which can ultimately weigh the hair down. Use the accompanying Kabuki brush to seamlessly blend the powder into your stands for an instant “I swear this isn’t third-day hair” effect.
We’ve never met a Herbivore Botanicals product we didn’t like, and the same goes for the brand’s latest launch: the Cloud Jelly Pink Plumping Hydration Serum. Infused with tremella mushroom, vegan collagen, and strawberry extract, this gel-like serum provides an immediate dose of plumping hydration and nourishment for bouncy, cloud-like skin. In other words, it’s basically a tall drink of water for dry, dehydrated complexions.
If cream blushes aren’t quite your thing, you’re in luck. Following the success of its lipstick collection, Hermès has unveiled its first blush powder, and unsurprisingly it’s every bit as luxurious as one might have imagined. True to its name, the powder features a super-silky, lightweight formula inspired by the brand’s iconic silk scarves and is infused with nourishing emollients and vitamin E for added skincare benefits. Available in eight semi-matte shades, each luscious powder also comes in a refillable, Pierre Hardy-designed compact that’s so stunning you’ll want to continue displaying it long after you’ve hit pan.
Come summertime, we need a mascara that will stay with us through thick and thin (or rather heat and humidity), which is where Byredo’s latest launch comes into play. Waterproof and 100 percent vegan, this high-performance mascara offers up to 24 hours of smudge-proof, water-resistant wear that never clumps or flakes. Apply a single coat for a natural, ultra-defined look or double up for a more intense effect that lasts from morning until night.
As we head into summer, sometimes a detoxifying scalp treatment is needed to help restore your hair’s natural bounce and shine. Made with organic white vinegar, kaolin clay, and charcoal, this detoxifying hair mask helps draw out dirt and impurities without stripping your natural oils, so your hair and scalp are left feeling clean, balanced, and healthy. Ideal for all hair types and textures, its organic formula also increases shine, balances pH, and reduces frizz, making it the perfect pre-summer refresher.
