The beauty industry can be overwhelming. Every day, there’s a miracle acid that your skin just has to have, or a new dry shampoo destined to give you Victoria’s Secret Angel waves. To cut down on all that noise, we’ve narrowed down this month’s must-have new launches, i.e., the ones you actually do need to know about. In May 2019, we got two new must-have products from Dior Beauty—the Diorshow Pump ’N’ Brow and Diorshow Pump ’N’ Volume HD Mascara—as well as a reformulated and bigger version of Glossier’s Supers serum collection. For those looking for something a bit more splashy, get your glitter on with the new limited-edition palette from HipDot, in collaboration with illustrator Hey Rooney. Here, the best beauty buys of May 2019.
Gucci has long been one of the few major luxury houses without a beauty range, but under Alessandro Michele’s creative vision, that’s all changed now. This month, Gucci revealed its first foray into cosmetics with a huge range of lipsticks that include sheers, balms, and plenty of high-pigmented shades in an array of colors.
DIORSHOW PUMP ’N’ BROW
There are plenty of brow gels out there on the market by now, but this one from Dior is worth your while: a perfectly miniature brush and a tinted gel that gets your brows perfectly in place without looking too, too perfect.
GLOSSIER SUPER BOUNCE SERUM
If you’ve been wanting to try hyaluronic acid but have been too intimidated, this is the serum for you. Glossier just relaunched their best-selling Supers collection to increase the percentage of key ingredients, making this an easy but potent first step in your daily skin-care routine.
HIPDOT LEGENDARY PRESSED GLITTER PALETTE
Leading up to Pride Month, HipDot partnered with queer artist Hey Rooney on a limited-edition palette, with proceeds going to the Anti-Violence Project Organization. The high-color, long-lasting shades happen to be perfect for any activity, Pride Month and beyond.
