There's something infinitely appealing about the new. (Just the phrase conjures up images of stars and shiny things, right?) While some people can't wait to book a table at the buzzy restaurant that just sprang open, and others need to hear that album the second it drops, we over here at The Lookbook start tapping our fingers impatiently the minute we hear about a new beauty launch.
Whether it's a serum said to make skin glow brighter than Dorit Kemsley's neon swimwear, a dry shampoo that will help us in our mission to have hair like Cynthia Bailey's, or a palette that's as glam as any reunion look, we can't wait to get our hands on whatever's new in skincare, haircare, and makeup. So for us, a new year means a new beauty routine, and we're already starting to stockpile some of 2019's fresh-from-the-beauty-stork goods. Are you with us?
Keep scrolling to see the new products that we're lusting after, or have already become addicted to this year. From a violet-hued serum made with an ingredient that's actually called beautyberry to a cleansing ritual that's fit for a goddess and an old favorite made with a revamped formula, these are the products that are making 2019 our most beautiful year yet.
Nudestix Nudies Matte Blush & Bronze in Sunkissed
As a celebrity makeup artist, Mary Phillips has worked with Gigi Hadid, Chrissy Teigen, and almost all of the Kardashian-Jenners — and now, thanks to her collaboration with Nudestix, you can bring her expertise to your own bathroom vanity. She collaborated with the brand to create the Nudies Matte Blush & Bronzer, a versatile color balm that can be used on the eyes, lips, and cheeks to give a natural, matte glow. The newest color, Sunkissed, is one of Mary's favorites, as she says it gives a "timeless, fresh, sunkissed glow, which never goes out of style."
Lano Face Base Aussie Flyer Recovery Mask
Whether you're a frequent flyer down the skincare aisle or you just want to treat your skin, Lano's Face Base Aussie Flyer Recovery Mask is a must for those with dry complexions. The standout ingredient in Lano's products is lanolin — it's an all-natural wax that helps to relieve stressed skin by providing an intense hydration. This particular mask doesn't need to be washed off, allowing you to use it at any time of the day. So, whether you're gearing up for a long flight or you just need to give your skin some extra TLC, a thick mask like Lano's just might be your saving grace.
Patchology moodpatch Perk Up
Next time you need an energy boost, don't reach for your second (or third) cup of coffee. Instead, try one of Patchology's moodpatch Perk Up eye gels. Infused with green tea, these gels are like an "energy drink" for your under eyes and your mood overall. While the green tea helps to de-puff the eye area, additional ingredients like Pine Leaf Extract and White Mulberry can help reduce dark circles and brighten up your eyes.
Glow Recipe Pineapple-C Bright Serum
Glass skin is a trend that originated in Korean beauty that leaves the skin looking dewy and poreless — exactly like what you'd imagine "glass skin" to look like. Glow Recipe's newest Pineapple-C Bright Serum aims to give you glass skin with its unique formula that's made with 22% pineapple juice, which is rich in Vitamin C. Full of antioxidants, the lightweight serum claims to rejuvenate skin and eliminate dark spots, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. The end result? A complexion that's hydrated, glowing, and glassy.
Huda Beauty Power Bullet Matte Lipstick
If you're looking for maximum pigmentation in a matte lipstick without the sticky drying feel, we suggest you turn your attention to Huda Beauty's latest launch. Beauty maven Huda Kattan has developed eight new matte lipsticks that do not slack on intensity. Each of the hues, ranging from a peachy nude to a cool toned aubergine, is flattering to a wide range of skin tones while delivering smooth, full-coverage payoff in just one swipe.
IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Foundation
IT Cosmetics is known for their cult-classic favorite Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream (which just so happens to be Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave's tried and true favorite) but now, the brand just released a brand new face product: Confidence in a Foundation. The formula comes in 48 shades and has a velvet-matte finish, which claims to give you a flawless finish for 24 hours without cracking or breaking up. The oil-free formula is also infused with ceramides, peptides, collagen, and hyaluronic acid, which will keep your skin looking smooth and ageless all day long.
IT Cosmetics Confidence in a Neck Cream Moisturizer
If you've ever felt self-conscious about your chin, you're not alone. Recently, Vanderpump Rules pals Brittany Cartwright, Katie-Maloney Schwartz and Kristen Doute opened up about their experience with getting Kybella injections to get rid of the unwanted fat on their chins and neck. If you want want to smooth the skin on your neck and reduce lines (but without getting injections or splurging on its hefty price tag), try IT Cosmetics's Confidence in a Neck Cream Moisturizer. The "super cream" is formulated with fucoidan seaweed extract, shea butter and a combination of elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid, and it has been clinically tested to reduce horizontal lines on your neck and increase firmness and elasticity.
Becca Cosmetics Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder
A cross between a setting powder and a setting spray, Becca's Hydra Mist Set & Refresh Powder has just been released in a brand new shade: Golden Bronze. The soft, warm tan hue is the second color of this formula, which is created with 50% water and glycerin to create a mist-like powder application that will set your makeup in place and can be reapplied to keep your skin glowing throughout the day.
L'Oréal Unlimited Lift and Length Mascara
You don't need to splurge on a high end mascara to get gorgeous lashes — just ask Kim Kardashian. The beauty guru's go-to lash enhancer is a cult classic from L'Oreal, but the company's latest mascara release is sure to become an affordable fan favorite, too. The Unlimited Length and Lift Mascara is uniquely inspired by a makeup artist hack to bend the mascara wand for more control and to get a precise application. This wand can be bent into two positions, allowing you to customize your lash look and coat all of your lashes, including those that are hard to reach on the inner and outer corners of the eye. And for under $15, this product will give you a professional look at a fraction of the cost.
Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist
If you love your skin to have a dewy finish, this watermelon-infused facial spray from Glow Recipe is a must-try. Formulated with 84% watermelon as well as hyaluronic acid and hibiscus, this fruity spray promises to enhance your natural glow and promote smoothness and illumination. Oh, and it's already an award-winner, too: it's HollywoodLife Beauty's top pick for best face mist in 2019.
Laura Mercier Rouge Essentiel Silky Crème Lipstick
From lip glosses to lipsticks, Bravolebs love a good, bold pout — but honestly, who doesn't? Whether you prefer bright colors or stick to neutral hues, Laura Mercier's latest collection of lipsticks claims to be a sensation in delivering "high impact color" and "weightless decadence." The Rouge Essentiel Silky Crème Lipstick collection can be found exclusively on Nordstrom.com before its release at all Laura Mercier stores in May. All 30 shades are categorized into five color "personalities" to fit a variety of skin tones, and the silky texture promises to deliver intense color with long-lasting staying power.
Urban Decay's Brow Blade Ink Stain + Waterproof Pencil
We're constantly in search of a perfectly filled-in brow — really, who's not? — and 2019 might be our year to achieve that. Urban Decay just rolled out a bunch of new products that are just for brows (available now at QVC.com and on January 15 at UrbanDecay.com). We're most excited to get our paws on this double-ended ink stain and waterproof pencil, which is said to give brows the look of having been freshly microbladed. (A look Margaret Josephs would go for!) Start by filling in and sculpting your brows with the pencil, then lock it all in with the "microblade ink stain." Other products in the new Street Style Brow Collection include brow primer and tinted gel, a waterproof brow putty, long-lasting grow gel, and more.
Becca Cosmetics Ultimate Lipstick Love
Everyone From Chrissy Teiegn to Heather Dubrow has used Becca Cosmetics, which is beloved for products that just give you that glow. (Honest!) The brand just dropped its Ultimate Love Lipsticks, which are moisturizing, nourishing, and designed to last for eight hours. Plus, the lipsticks come in 30 shades, including cool, neutral, and warm hues. What's not to love?
Becca Cosmetics Ultimate Lip Definer
Care for some liner with that? Becca also just dropped the Ultimate Lip Definer, which comes in 18 shades and also lasts for eight hours. Bonus: there's a built-in sharpener, and this stuff will. not. smudge.
Kiehl's Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil Herbal Concentrate
Designed to clean up problem skin, this intriguing new oil promises to reduce redness and help stressed skin hydrate and relax. Ahh. We feel calmer just knowing it exists.
Kevyn Aucoin Emphasize Eyeshadow Design Palette
Not only does this palette offer matte and satin shadows, it also has a cool, cream-foil shadow. The latter can be used on its own, or as a liner — and who doesn't love a little extra gleam? The Vanderpump Rules ladies will probably want to get in on this: We know that Katie Maloney-Schwartz and Stassi Schroeder are both fans of the brand.
Benefit Roller Liner
This matte liquid liner has a precision tip that delivers a smooth, fine line. Fun fact: The good people at Benefit had about 100 test this out, and 93 of them reported that the liner doesn't tug or drag on skin, which is pretty huge. Even bigger, Kyle Richards approves this brand.
Tatcha Violet C Brightening Serum
In just eight weeks, you can expect to see an improvement in overall skin texture — and your complexion should be noticeably smoother in just seven days. The serum's secrets lie in its powerful mix of ingredients, which include two types of vitamin C and Japanese beautyberry.
Jane Iredale Serum
Launching on January 14, this smoothing and brightening potion combines hydrating hyaluronic acid and botanicals that are packed full of nutrients. It promises to plump up the skin, and deliver a mega dose of moisture. Read: it just might be the key to escaping dull skin this winter.
Will be available at janeiredale.com
Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream 24-Hour Moisturizer
We've always been fans of this long-lasting moisturizer, which gets right down to business using Squalane and Glacial Glycoprotein. Plus, it's got a lightweight, nongreasy feel that we love. And — new in 2019! — the top-selling stuff is made without parabens.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream in 30mL
Charlotte Tilbury's beloved Magic Cream is Dorinda Medley's holy-grail moisturizer. (Ours too, by the way.) A complete savior for dry, dull, winter skin, this jar of skincare heaven does have a hefty pricetag to match its level of greatness. The good news is the brand just launched a smaller-sized 30mL tub at a fraction of the price of the standard size! So if you're looking to test the cream at a lower risk to your wallet (we're pretty sure you'll love it, but anyways...), or if you just aren't quite ready to drop $100, this new launch is perfect for you.
Charlotte Tilbury Cleansing Ritual
Speaking of Charlotte Tilbury... this new cleansing set is billed as a "spa-in-a-jar." Start with the Citrus Oil Radiance Cleanse to even out and brighten up your skin, then use the Purifying Charcoal Cleanse to draw out impurities. There's something so indulgent about a double-cleanse, and the regime will leave you feeling squeaky clean and soft.
The Erika Girardi-approved brand just dropped a spray that offers a slew of benefits with each spritz. Not only will it set your makeup; it also illuminates the skin and gives it a boost of hydration thanks to ingredients like hyaluronic acid.
Slip Sleep Mist
Who needs a cup of chamomile tea? Before bedtime, spritz this calming mist into the air. Then lay back, inhale the dreamy, chamomile-lavender scent, and dream of lying back in a field filled with wildflowers. You might want to stock up on extra bottle to take to work, too — who couldn't use a little desk-side relaxation from time to time?
Slip Relax Roller
Slip also makes an oil that blends cedarwood with lavender and bergamot. Roll the potion onto your pressure points, inhale deeply, and relax.
Tatcha Dewy Skin Cream
This rich, fast-absorbing cream is set to launch on March 1 at TATCHA.com — but Kim Kardashian West has already tried it. That's because her makeup artist, Mario Dedivanovic, is a big fan of it already. In a recent master class, Dedivanovic shared that the cream gives skin a dewy, shimmer-free finish. It also visibly plumps up the skin — and quick!
NuFACE FIX™ Line Smoothing Device
This new micro-current device makes skin look tighter, softer, and more firm. It's also great to have on hand when you're short on sleep: it helps eyes appear less puffy in a pinch.
IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Foundation Hydrating Powder With Brush
We don't always think of powder as moisturizing or hydrating, but this new product is both. (And thank goodness — who likes the look of caked-on powder?) It gives full coverage with a matte finish, and comes with a brush that's made to buff it all in.
Nügg’s Watermelon Face and Sleep Mask
We already know that watermelon works wonders on the skin (remember when this was all the rage?) Plus, we'll never kick a pretty pink mask out of bed. Literally! This hydrating potion is made to be worn overnight, and you'll wake up looking positively aglow.
