Mary Kay Live Fearlessly Eau de Parfum
The new fragrance from Mary Kay didn’t disappoint our noses. It’s clean, classic, and perfectly fresh for 2018 and beyond.

Dior Lip Glow Ultra-Pink
This sheer balm moisturizes and protects lips while bringing out your natural lip color thanks to just a hint of pink tint. It’s a revolution for daytime wear.

Living Proof Restore Smooth Blowout Concentrate
The South has a humidity problem and this miracle in a jar is the answer. Just a small amount of the heat-activated formula will smooth out the potential for frizz before it starts, while also acting as a thermal protectant for styling.

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer with SPF 50+
As far as we’re concerned, IT Cosmetics can do no wrong. We were already fans of their CC cream and Bye Bye Under Eye, which means our expectations were high when we heard another makeup essential was landing. We love the 50+ broad-spectrum protection and hydrating, smoothing finish of their new full coverage moisturizer, and you will too.

Kiehl’s Powerful-Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate
Don’t be alarmed if this rich formula has a slight warming effect upon application. The brand says you’ll likely see results within eight weeks, but we loved the primer-like finish that we saw immediately. It helped makeup go on smoother and stay longer.

Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner Micro Tip
You’ll find another new favorite from Stila in the micro-tip version of their cult-favorite Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. For natural-looking lined eyes this skinny stick can’t be beat.

Stila Cosmetics Shimmer and Glow Liquid Eyeshadow
When these one-swipe shadows hit the beauty desk we were immediately fans. They’re an absolute no-brainer for anyone looking to expedite their morning routine without sacrificing their look. Oh, and did we mention they actually stay put all day long? No creasing here.

Mary Kay TimeWise Age Minimize 3D Eye Cream
We can get behind a $36 eye cream. Mary Kay’s new TimeWise collection launch featured some great products, but this was a winner on multiple levels.
Buy: $36; marykay.com
Olay Clay Stick Masks
We love a mask, but we don’t love a mess. For anyone else in this camp, behold the new Clay Stick Masks from Olay. They come in three different varieties (Glow Boost, Pore Detox, and Fresh Reset) to help resolve a number of skin concerns.

Farmacy Honeymoon Glow
If you haven’t tried Farmacy’s range of products, it’s time to give them a spin. The natural formulas are gentle yet effective, delivering amazing results. The latest launch, Honeymoon Glow, is a night serum that utilizes the brand’s calling card—honey—along with flower acids that work to resurface skin while you sleep.
Buy: $58; sephora.com
PMD Clean Smart Facial Cleansing Device
Another facial cleansing brush? Yep, and it’s our new favorite. We love the easy-to-maneuver design and gentle vibrations that help lift, firm, and tone skin while it cleanses.
