Beauty brands are expanding their offerings this month with product launches in makeup, skin care, hair care and more.
It seems plenty of products have been introduced in time for summer, with a new wave foam from Bumble and bumble for perfect, textured beach hair and a facial moisturizer with SPF from Florence by Mills.
Pat McGrath has launched her first skin-focused product called Divine Skin, which is meant to enhance the effects of one’s skin care routine, and Fresh Beauty dropped another facial mist in its bestselling rose formula.
A number of collaborations are offering limited-edition collections, such as Sally Hansen partnering with the hit ‘90s television show “Friends” and ColourPop teaming with Lucasfilm once more to create a makeup line inspired by the iconic 1977 movie “Star Wars: A New Hope.”
