5 New Beauty Launches for May 2016

Sneak Peek: May 2016

We all love seeing a good sneak peek of what’s coming soon—call it ‘market research’ if you wish. As a beauty editor, I get to try out new products before they hit the shelves all the time (probably one of the best perks of the job) and I wanted to put a few launches on your radar that you can keep an eye out for.

Get that wishlist ready… you’re going to want to check these ones out!

  • OPI Alice Through the Looking Glass Collection
  • OPI Alice Through the Looking Glass Collection

    OPI created a nail color collection to celebrate the new movie, Alice Through The Looking Glass hitting theatres on May 27th. The collection is actually filled with several other bright shades, but I particularly fell in love with these three pastel hues; The I’s Have It (the cornflower blue on the left), Oh My Majesty! (the pearly white in the middle) and I’m Gown For Anything (the pinkish-purple on the right). The collection is trickling into stores and online retailers now, but you’ll be able to find them at salons in May.

  • Chanel Summer 2016
  • Chanel Summer 2016 "Dans La Lumière de l'Été" Collection

    As the name suggests, this gorgeous bronzy collection will leave you feeling like you’re basking in the warm summer sunlight. Luminous skin is enhanced by sun-drenched shades of bronze, coral and pink. The collection features two Les Beiges powders (one for bronzing, one for blush), a copper and olive palette of eye products and juicy shades of lipgloss and nail lacquer. You’ll still have to wait a bit for this one which is launching towards the end of the month—but stay tuned as I’ll be sharing more from this collection very soon.

  • Covergirl x Katy Perry Katy Kat Matte Lipsticks

    Katy Perry recently revealed her newest project in collaboration with Covergirl—a lipstick line of her own. The collection features 11 demi-matte lipsticks in both soft and bold shades—yep, even a black one. The formula is moisturizing and gorgeously pigmented! My favorite shades are Sphinx (a soft nude), Maroon Meow (a deep burgundy) and Perry Panther (a rich black). You’ll start seeing them in drugstores and mass market retailers soon!

  • The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Essence Lotion
  • The Body Shop Vitamin E Aqua Boost Essence Lotion

    The Body Shop’s Vitamin E collection has been a long time fan favorite and next month they’re adding an ultra-hydrating essence lotion to the line-up. If you haven’t tried an essence before, you can think of them like a watered-down and slightly jellied serum, which you can apply with a cotton pad or your fingers. The formula is infused with biofermented hyaluronic acid to provide long-lasting moisture. I love using it for facial massages and when I need a double dose of hydration. Available in May!
