Hot New Beauty Products to Try This Month

By: Dana Rocha

2016 has already brought a ton of new makeup and skincare products into our lives. There’s no time like the present to switch up your beauty stash. Check out some of the hottest anticipated products of the beauty world. 

Too Faced is bringing back a childhood favorite in the best way possible. The new Peanut Butter and Jelly Eye Shadow Palette looks and smells like the classic sandwich. The nine-shade palette is broken up into three different looks – soft and sweet, rich and creamy, and PB&J – leaving it up to you to choose the “fillings”. This chic palette just launched on February 28th. 

These adorable tins are staple products in the UK but have never been available stateside. Instead of the thick formula from the brand’s tiny jars of lip balm, this is a glossier and smoother balm. The balm is available in the original scent, cocoa butter, rosy lips, and aloe.

Benefit’s cult favorite Hoola bronzer has been launched in liquid form. It is a universal soft matte bronzer that you can use in different ways such as adding it to your moisturizer for a subtle glow. Dew The Hoola Matte Liquid Bronzer just launched on February 26th!

Another product that got a liquid formula revamp is Benefit’s Dandelion Box O’ Powder Blush. As a liquid blush, Dandelion Dew will give the same soft baby-pink glow to cheeks but with a more natural dewy finish. Dandelion Dew became available on February 28th.  Grab it before it sells out!

It seems like the brow trend isn’t going to be over any time soon and here is yet another brow product that offers everything you need to keep your brows on point. Physician's Formula Brow Kit includes a brow pencil to define your brows, a highlighter to highlight your arches, a tinted brow gel and a brow brush to set everything in place.  

MAC has taken one of its popular lip products and transformed it into a breakout liquid formula. The Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor is a quick-drying, long-wearing yet velvety concoction that is available in 15 shades. 


For my fellow nail polish junkies out there there is nothing more exciting than the release of new polish collections. Essie has brought back six iconic shades from their vault for the Retro Revival Collection in honor of their 35th anniversary. The most notable shade is the legendary Starry Starry Night, which was first formulated in 1985. Before the announcement of its re-release, bottles of these were selling for hundreds of dollars on eBay. 

Deborah Lippmann is offering a new lacquer formula that provides the glossy look and long-wear of a gel polish without the nail damage. Look out for the Gel Lab Pro Polish in the shade Dirty Little Secret, which debuted on the Spring 2016 Narciso Rodriguez runway. 

Covergirl just came out with a new version of its ever-popular LashBlast Mascara. The new LashBlast Plumpify Mascara features an unusual conical brush that is designed to grab every single lash for ultimate volume and coverage. 

The extremely popular Color Tattoo line from Maybelline is now available in a jumbo shadow pencil form. The Color Tattoo Concentrated Crayon comes in ten different shades and offers the same smooth, creamy finish as the original eyeshadows but with an easy glide-on application. 

New from Burt’s Bees is their 14-piece lipstick line that is 100% natural and offers coverage for up to 8 hours. The new lipsticks deliver bold color with moisturizing ingredients such as Beeswax, Moringa Oil, and Raspberry Seed Oil. Burt’s Bees has also released a new BB cream in three shades. This product has with SPF 15 protection to protect while working to smooth and illuminate the skin.  

The newest addition to Neutrogena’s popular Pink Grapefruit range is the Oil-Free Acne Correct & Cover Pink Grapefruit Moisturizer. The product works to clear skin while concealing imperfections and is available in two shades. 

The Bioré Baking Soda Scrub just hit shelves and offers a unique facial-cleansing experience. This scrub comes in powder form and with a bit of water, turns into a great exfoliator.
