Birchbox isn’t the only thing worthy of an update this June. Case in point: these new must-have products from our favorite brands that have us thinking it’s time to change up our beauty routines as well.
In honor of our international rebrand and wonderful Birchbox subscribers around the world, we’ve partnered with Color Club to create a custom collection of pastel neon polishes. Each of the hues was inspired by one of our four global offices, located in what we like to think are the best cities on the planet: Barcelona, London, New York and Paris.
We’re happy for any product that lightens our makeup bag, which is why Vasanti’s new 2-in-1 primer for face and eyes is such a dream. It not only keeps your makeup fresh for up to 12 hours, but it also blurs fine lines and other imperfections and has built-in antiaging properties.
Famous for cult-like scents named after iconic New York locales, Bond No. 9 has now tackled the largest neighborhood of them all: the internet. Just like the digital network we can’t imagine ever having lived without, the unisex fragrance is bold, outgoing, and unexpected, with a mix of contemporary tropical fruit and berry scents.
After the runaway success of BB and CC creams, the rest of the alphabet was only a matter of time. This “Dynamic Do-all” primes, perfects, and protects skin both instantly and with each additional use. Add in SPF 25, hibiscus and olive extracts to keep skin hydrated, and patented antiaging ingredients, and we’re pretty convinced this lightweight cream really does do it all.
When Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz walks out onto the runway after a show, he’s said that all he sees are people’s eyes. No wonder, then, that he partnered with Lancôme on designs for the brand’s best-selling eye products. Launching mid-June, this collection of mascaras and eye palettes (plus Lancôme’s first-ever false lashes) features charming doodles by Elbaz.
We’re suckers for nearly every product from the Provence-inspired L’Occitane, but their latest release has us feeling truly, well, sublime. The combination of iris and angelica root in this innovative primer-meets-serum helps minimize pores, reduce redness, and improve skin’s firmness and hydration.
While prevention is key when it comes to skin, renewal is also important—especially after a certain age. Formulated for women over 45, this trio targets wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other signs of aging. We’re impressed with its patented Natural Encapsulation Technology, which time-releases concentrated actives for maximum efficacy.
