It’s officially summer! With temperatures soaring, so does our need for extra hydration… and extra flair! Too Faced released a party in a palette, the Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask is *finally* back in stock on Sephora (hurry!), and you’ll probably want Elcie’s new facial mist within reach at all times this summer. Scroll down for details!
The Hydra Enhancer, Elcie
It’s not uncommon for Elcie cosmetics to be sold out of their items — the fandom is real, proving founder Lilit Cardanian just knows what you need for flawless makeup. Starting with her foundation that garnered a loyal following, Cardanian began introducing skin-specific products to her line. Her latest launch: the Hydra Enhancer face mist (or as I like to describe it, a mini spa in a bottle). She told us at the launch that many bottled water brands are extremely acidic – almost equivalent to coffee (who knew?). She learned that alkaline water molecules are much smaller than tap water, so your skin actually absorbs it better and about 10 times quicker. Knowing that, she concocted this refreshing alkaline-based mist to help balance the pH of your skin. Mist it on before makeup to prep, afterwards to set, or just anytime to refresh. I love how light it is, and have been using it daily as a quick skin primer before makeup. Not to mention, it smells amazing, thanks to jasmine essential oil. No artificial dyes that might irritate your skin here. –Shyema Azam
Too Faced just dropped a major bomb. Literally. The highly anticipated Glitter Bomb Eyeshadow Palette is now available and it’s everything we could have asked for in a glitter palette. It comes with eight shades, ranging from a barely-there opaque blush to in your face vibrant jewel tones, taking you from work to working it in no time. The palette also encourages you to get creative: use its white base shadow to brighten up any of the glitter shadows, or the black base shadow to intensify. We also suggest you play with the texture, swiping it on dry for a barely there shimmer or wetting your brush for a liquid crystal-like finish. We love a palette that’s as multidimensional as we are. -Shanly Brennan
Nothing says summer more than fresh watermelon. Glow Recipe has found a way to incorporate that refreshing treat into your skincare routine with the Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask. As it turns out, the rinds of watermelon have been traditionally used in Korea as a way to combat dehydrated skin and soothe irritation. This mask is comprised of Hyaluronic Acid hydrators, AHA’s for pore refinement, and watermelon extract that’s packed with antioxidants and amino acids.
Best part? It works while you sleep, is completely pillow proof, and smells absolutely amazing. Your beauty sleep just got a lot better. -Hannah Alcorn
