30 New Beauty Products To (Finally!) Celebrate Summer’s Start

by Jessica DeFino
Blue Mercury

Angelenos have a little saying to describe the first month of summer: “June gloom.” Not what you were expecting, right? Sadly, Southern California tends to be more cloudy and overcast than bright and sunny this time of year; but with the help of these 30 new June 2019 beauty products, the ladies of Los Angeles (and everywhere else in the country, for that matter) will soon be trading in June gloom for a June glow.

This month is all about getting your glow on, as evidenced by the latest and greatest in skincare, makeup, hair care, nail care, and more. Products like the forthcoming Guerlain Terracotta Contour and Glow Palette and Isle Of Paradise Express Ultra-Dark Self-Tanning Mousse offer a more standard take on the sun-kissed look, while new launches from Virtue and Smith & Cult take lit-from-within to a whole new level. The former’s soon-to-launch Healing Oil “permeates strands with Alpha Keratin 60ku for a nourished, healthy glow,” the brand says in a press release... because, yes, your hair deserves to shine bright, too. So do your nails, actually, and Smith & Cult’s Fade the Sun polish (available June 3) — a light-reflecting shade of “metallic papaya” — makes that possible.

Ahead, 30 new beauty buys for June — one for every day of the month, of course — that are nothing short of brilliant. (And I mean that in every sense of the word.)


Guerlain Terracotta Contour and Glow Palette

Launching at Sephora in June, Guerlain’s brand new Terracotta Contour and Glow Palette features soft, complementary shades of highlighter, bronzer, and blush to give you the glow-up in three easy steps.


amika Supernova Blonde Violet Moisture and Shine Cream

Blondes, be sure to scoop up amika’s brightening cream when it launches later this month. It neutralizes brassiness to keep color looking fresh (which is essential if you plan to spend your summer in a chlorine-filled pool.)

Charlotte Tilbury’s Hot Lips 2 collection — a follow-up to 2016’s Hot Lips — lands online on June 20. Even better than the iconic formula? The company pledges to donate $1.3 million from lipstick sales to Women for Women International.

Jusbox Sirens & Sailors

Available June 1, Siren & Sailors — the first fragrance from Italian brand Jusbox to be available stateside — pays homage to Amy Winehouse’s enduring style. Think sultry musk, classic vanilla, and a hint of bright, citrus-y bergamot.
