Before making vacation plans (even if you decide to stay local), these are the newest product picks to add to your packing list.
With Mother's Day approaching, we’re also pampering our moms (and ourselves) with these new releases, which include everything from the first color-changing blush oil to a revolutionary AR-enabled performance drink for ultimate warm weather hydration.

Insert Name Here
As you may know, the '90s are making a serious comeback—especially in the beauty sphere. With its fingers on the pulse of what’s trendy, INH recently released its limited-edition Insert Crimp Here ($49) that helps you achieve micro-rounded crimps in seconds.
Unlike standard crimpers, the fourth addition to the brand’s hot tool collection features rounded plates that create a more natural look that is also safe to use on various hair types.
The Foundation Stick ($40) from Basma Beauty deserves a place on your beauty counter. After three years of formulation, the new lightweight foundation has already received rave reviews from those with sensitive skin.
The vegan, ultra-hydrating formula features skin-loving ingredients—like apricot butter, aloe vera extract, and vitamin E—to nourish the skin and leave your face hydrated and dewy. It is also worth noting that the hypoallergenic product is Dermatologist-tested and comes in 40 shades serving a diverse range of skin tones and undertones.
The benefits of aromatherapy include boosting your mood, helping with relaxation after a long day, and even improving clarity and focus. This alone makes having a cordless diffuser a valuable self-care addition to your busy lifestyle. With the cordless design of Vitruvi’s Move Diffuser ($179), you can comfortably gain tranquility in any setting you choose. Even your vanity.
Sol De Janeiro
Brazilian Joia™ Dry Shampoo ($24) minimizes the need for time-consuming wash days and extends the life of your favorite styles. This detoxifying formula removes weighty oils without stripping the scalp of natural oils needed for moisture.
With outside opening back up, we're turning to long-lasting makeup again. Originating in Italy, the Wonderfilter™ Velvet Finish Primer ($35) features vita rose extract and evanescent oils. Also boasting TexturePerfect™ technology, the primer gives you the cloud-like softness that helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and large pores.
You’ll be more than ready to pucker up with BH Cosmetics’ latest release: Say It! Shimmer Gloss ($9).

Featuring nearly 200 tattoos in each kit, the waterproof designs can be applied similar to stickers for a quick and convenient mani covered in flirty designs.
Did we mention that these tiny tats can be applied to skin? The gift that keeps giving.
Coca-Cola is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its iconic 1971 commercial, which promoted harmony, peace, optimism, and connection (you might also remember it from the finale of Mad Men). To celebrate the big milestone, the beverage giant partnered with Morphe to create the Awe Together Artistry Palette ($22).
"In 1971, in the midst of a shifting cultural landscape, Coca-Cola debuted a groundbreaking commercial featuring young people on a hilltop in Italy teaching the world to sing in perfect harmony. With that same optimistic voice, Coca-Cola presents the 1971 Unity Collection. It is a look at the past and a glimpse into the future with warmth, togetherness, and hopeful spirit," says Morphe on the summer-inspired eyeshadow palette.
Olive & June
Olive & June recently launched The Summer Box ($90), and the name of the manicure must-have speaks for itself!

We have the secret to kissable lips this Spring/Summer. Available in 17 vibrant colors, MAC just released its Love Me Liquid Lipcolour ($24) that promises to give you soft and sensuous lips just in time for your next date night.
