As we reach the end of the month it’s time for us to round up our favorite buzz-worthy beauty launches from this month. June is always a great month for beauty launches, brands often come out with fun products to play with over the summer months, and skincare brands focus on delivering versatile products to simplify your routine. We’ve got everything from celebrity collaborations to makeup for the metaverse. Let’s dig in.
This makeup-skincare crossover has been created to strip down your routine and give your skin some extra TLC. Enriched with vitamin C and probiotics, the powder acts to protect your skin from harsh blue light and free radicals that can lead to early signs of aging. Apply it to manage shine over the top of your every day makeup, or use it on its own to softly mask any problem areas for the perfect ‘I woke up like this’ look.
If you remember OG lip plumping glosses you’ll be able to recall that almost unpleasant tingling feel that came straight after swiping the gloss across your lips. Well Juicy Lip Plump is so not here for that. This plumping lip gloss offers tingle-free non-stick shine packed with hydrating ingredients to condition your lips while making them look super gorgeous.
Another makeup product that’s been packed with skincare ingredients, CT’s Beautiful Skin Bronzer contains hydrating hyaluronic acid and vitamin D3 to condition your skin. Available in four shades, the cream bronzer can be used to contour your face and body to get a summer glow without stepping foot on the beach.

Formulated specifically to nourish curly hair, R+Co’s latest masque penetrates deep into the hair to nourish it and prevent split ends. The conditioner-replacement should be used once a week, and can be left on for five minutes to give it time to work its magic. Expect bouncy, defined and nourished curls after using it.
Like most summers, beach waves are having their moment again, and Cermonia’s latest launch is here to make your beachy dreams a reality.
