It’s finally June, which means the restaurant patios are open, the box office hits have arrived, and Summer Fridays have replaced the 4 p.m. slump. And, if you’re a beauty lover, there’s one more cause for celebration: Tons of stores are revamping their beauty shelves to prep for the season ahead, which means an influx of glossy lip tints, melt-resistant eyeliners, dewy highlighters, and cult-worth eyeshadows worthy of their own wait-lists.
If you’ve been watching Ulta Beauty specifically, you might have noticed a few extra pages on the site’s “new arrivals” section. We curated our favorites — from the season’s “it”-palette to our new favorite lip stain — ahead.
This lip gloss feels a little tacky when you first swipe it on, but it quickly sinks into lips, leaving a weightless stain that lasts all day without flaking.
Lancôme, $26, available at Ulta Beauty
If you’re already swiping this cult lip balm on 15 times a day, now you have a bright pink or electric orange version to switch things up.
Lano Lips, $13.5, available at Ulta Beauty
This retro tin might look like any old balm, but it actually has a bouncy, marshmallow-like texture that blends perfectly onto cheeks without smearing or sticking.
Too Cool for School, $20, available at Ulta Beauty
We’d love this mini stain for its glossy, saturated color alone; the fact that it’s also packed with shea butter and plum seed oil to moisturize lips makes it an instant classic.
Too Cool for School, $18, available at Ulta Beauty
Urban Decay’s new “Beached” eyeshadow palette is inspired by California coastline — if you couldn’t tell by the gorgeous muted blues and sandy beiges. The UD Heat palette was all the rage last summer, and we expect this cool-toned aquamarine iteration to sell-out just as fast.
Urban Decay, $34, available at Ulta Beauty
You don’t think you need a long-wearing bronzer, until your contour starts running down your cheeks at 9 a.m. on the subway platform. This version doesn’t budge, and comes in two metallic shades of rose gold and copper.
MAC, $34, available at Ulta Beauty
We trust Sun Bum’s sunscreen for our face, and now the brand has our lips covered, too. The twist-up balm hydrates and protects lips, while leaving behind a pretty rosy color for “no makeup” makeup days.
Sun Bum, $5.99, available at Ulta Beauty
This concentrated highlighting liquid can be layered from “barely there” to “beauty vlogger” in just a few drops. It comes in soft pink, pale gold, and deep bronze to flatter all skin tones.
model’s own, $9.99, available at Ulta Beauty
Of course, if highlighting is your game, then this is the palette to have this summer. The 6-pan collection holds a spectrum of glittery metallic shades, from iridescent violet to dark golden rose. They’re not subtle, and that’s the point.
Anastasia Beverly Hills, $45, available at Ulta Beauty
Glitter is everywhere this summer, and this Insta-famous brand delivered with thick chunky shadows that make a statement on their own.
Dose of Colors, $20, available at Ulta Beauty
Benefit’s new blurring foundation makes skin look so airbrushed and flawless, its only competition is FaceTune.
Benefit Cosmetics, $29, available at Ulta Beauty
Stila’s best-selling waterproof eyeliner just got an upgrade: The recently-launched liquid pen now comes with a super-fine micro-tip for the teeniest, most precise lines.
Stila, $22, available at Ulta Beauty
