It’s hard to keep up with all the latest beauty trends with so much product coming out so frequently. To help you sort through the clutter of product launches, Fashion Reverie has rounded up our beauty experts to discover what new products landed on their desks and really have them talking! Remember, just because temperatures are cooling down doesn’t mean that you can stop being concerned about sunscreen and sun bleached dry hair.
From protecting us from our phones—and the damage they’re inflicting on our faces—to recreating our favorite salon gel manicure at home, these products are our newest obsessions. We’re sure they’ll soon be your favorites too!
The DIY 1 Step Gel Mani
Gelish Mini has been one of our favorite brands for at-home gel manicures, but now with their new Uno Collection, it’s faster than ever to get long-lasting color without a trip to the salon. Just swipe on a thin layer (or two) of your favorite Gelish Uno hue and place your nails under the UV lights! With virtually no drying time, you can head straight out the door and be on your way! The only downside is that the one step collection doesn’t last as long as it’s multi-step predecessors (about 7–10 days versus 14–21 days) However, Uno will stay on longer than traditional polish and with it’s quick and easy application, it’s never been simpler!
Primer that Mattifies
If there’s one makeup tip we’ve heard over and over again, it’s use a primer. While we can’t deny the benefits of preparing your skin before applying makeup, if you’re anything like us, you probably forgo this crucial step! Despite all the experts telling us constantly how important it is—and yes even seeing the benefits for ourselves—it wasn’t until we discovered Catrice Cosmetics’ Prime and Fine pore refining anti-shine base that we really began to listen. While it doesn’t provide some pore shrinking miracle, the lightweight formula will expertly keep your makeup in place and minimize the dreaded shine that accompanies a night of dancing! So even at the end of the night, you’ll be selfie ready!!
The Sake Mask
If you’re only enjoying a glass of sake with your sushi then you’re really missing out on some amazing skin benefits! Not only is sake known as a delicious alcoholic beverage, but also for it’s brightening and smoothing skin benefits; which you can thank the kojic and amnio acids for! Rather than bathing in alcohol, Boscia has captured all the skin improving benefits of sake in their Sake Bright White Mask. This peel-off mask promises to hydrate, firm, tone, brighten, and plump up dehydrated skin due to a mix of sake, sea fern algae, vitamin C, and peptone complex. The Sake Bright White Mask also reduces fine lines and wrinkles and minimizes the look of age spots. After your first application, you’ll immediately feel the difference in your skin and notice a nice natural healthy glow as well! Hey, another reason to love sake!
Tinted Protection from Our Smart Phones
By now everyone knows the importance of applying sunscreen daily to protect yourself from the sun’s harmful rays. However, have you ever considered what damage those HEV (high energy visible) blue light rays from our electronic devices are doing to our skin? Visible light (from the sun and electronics) penetrates deeper into the skin that UV rays. Which has us wondering why we haven’t thought to worry about the long-term effects of these harmful rays known to cause irreversible damage?
