When it comes to your face, the word “oil” sounds like something you’d like to avoid at all costs. But unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few months (no judgement!), chances are you’ve heard at least something about beauty oils, the latest and greatest addition to the sounds-crazy-but-it’s-not realm of skincare products. The idea of adding oil to your face admittedly sounds a little repulsive — especially if you already have oily, acne-prone skin — but if you can get past the initial incredulity, you’ll be rewarded with a surprising treat for your skin! Skin oils are ultra-concentrated, so they can potentially spare you the trouble of stocking up on all those jumbo-sized moisturizers and masks you’ve convinced yourself you need. After all, these handy beautifying oils not only moisturize your skin, but more importantly help regulate your skin’s oil production for skin that’s not only healthy, but, well… more productive, too!

Have dull, dry skin that needs a serious pick-me-up? Try Tarte’s Pure Maracuja Oil. Looking for something anti-aging and repairing? Check out Lumene Complete Rewind Intensive Recovery Beauty Oil. Other favorites include the ultra-hydrating Jack Black Epic Moisture MP 10 Nourishing Oil for extra-dry skin, Boscia Tsubaki Beauty Oil, and the gorgeously-packaged Tatcha GOLD Camellia Beauty Oil.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a loud and proud Benefit Cosmetics fan. I mean, not only are their products total life-savers, but they’re also adorably packaged with cheeky names that just further suggest that the team behind the brand is just as genius as the beauty goodies themselves. Okay, so maybe I sound a little too fangirl-crazy, but c’mon — from their Pore-fessional Primer to their ridiculously popular Benetint lip and cheek stain, my makeup bag certainly wouldn’t be complete sans Benefit. Now, just in time for the summer season ahead, the brand is jumping on the balm bandwagon and expanding their range of multipurpose tints to include a series of Hydrating Tinted Lip Balms, in all of our favorite Benefit hues. Benebalm, Lollibalm, ChaChabalm, and Posiebalm — no matter which signature tint you prefer (in my case, all of them), you can rest assured that your pucker will not only look on-point, but will also stay hydrated all summer long, thanks to the balm’s mango butter-enriched formula. Just like the tinted stains that came before them, these handy balms pack a semi-sheer punch of color that’s perfectly buildable for customizing your preferred look without ever overdoing it!

Urban Decay Unveils Three New Ways to Get Naked

I know I’m not alone when I say I’m a big fan of Urban Decay’s Naked line — from their lightweight Naked Skin foundation to all three of their stunning Naked Eyeshadow Palettes. So it should come as no surprise that I was super stoked to hear about the addition of three new Naked Flushed Palettes to help expand my ever-growing UD makeup “wardrobe.” Just in time for the summer months ahead — or better yet, NOW, before we’ve gotten a chance to get our real summer glow on — Urban Decay has expanded their tricolor bronzing cheek palette to include three new combinations in Native, Streak, and Strip. Each slim, sleek palette includes a blush, highlighter, and bronzer in one, which can be used separately or blended to create your own hotter-than-hot custom flush. Aside from the gorgeous color combos, it’s hard not to love the powder’s featherlight, silky finish, which is just subtle enough to convince some that you’re really going “commando” with your makeup routine!

Derek Lam’s Collection for Estee Lauder Has Finally Arrived!

The wait is over, beauty addicts! Derek Lam’s much-anticipated collaboration line with Estee Lauder has finally arrived, and you can have it all for $85. The collection actually isn’t a range, but rather consists of just one stylish set – a chic minaudiere clutch filled with midnight-inspired makeup hues like Kajal Crayon in Near Night, eyeshadow in Smoked Gold, and a universally flattering lip color in Smoked Blush. Derek Lam worked directly with Estee Lauder creative director Tom Pecheux to come up with a set of makeup must-haves inspired by the textures and tones of Lam’s Spring 2014 collection. Designed to be versatile enough to suit both the subtle and the statement-making beauty maven – and to create looks for both day or night – the collection consists of more wearable hues that can be used to create a stronger, sexier look when desired. It would have been a great addition to my Christmas wishlist, but hey – now I have something to spend one of my many gift cards on!

Would You Splurge on Essie’s At-Home Gel Manicure System?

Although it doesn’t leave my nails in the best condition, I love me a gel mani! I quickly got hooked on gel manicures after finally taking the plunge and popping my Shellac ”cherry” last summer, after too many years of wasted money on insufficient, chip-prone “regular” manicures. And then last fall, like it was meant to be, one of my favorite nail polish brands Essie released their own professional LED gel system. Essie’s system boasts a gentler, care-conscious take on the traditional in-salon gel manicure that won’t leave nails in crappy condition when it’s time to take them off, and also comes equipped with a line of 36 gel shades to keep your nail game on-point! Of course, a salon-worthy tool like this doesn’t come cheap; the lamp itself will cost you a pretty penny ($199 to be exact), but think of all the money you’ll save on salon manis in the future!

Bold Brows Made Easy Thanks to Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade

As someone who has been cursed with sadly sparse yet fiercely coarse brows, I’ve more or less made it my mission to defy my God-given features and somehow achieve awesome arches, even if that means faking it. I don’t have too many outlandish or unrealistic requests; I like my brows clean and precise without looking Sharpie’d on, and I like hairs to look groomed without appearing cemented into place. So far, I’ve tried a bevy of brow-shading and arch-taming projects — from pencils and gels to eyeshadows and even brow markers — but until recently, I had yet to find a “holy grail” of brow products that would shade, shape, and keep hairs in place throughout the day. Figures Anastasia Beverly Hills would come to the rescue! The brow mecca’s latest product ventures into a product variety I had not yet seen before: brow pomade! Dipbrow Pomade is highly-concentrated and buildable, so you can shape, define, and “carve” brows with the utmost precision, and also expertly blend color to create a more natural appearance. As for wayward strands, the waxy formula also keeps hairs in place, but won’t smudge or smear, even on oily skin.

CLEAN Rollerball Collection Celebrates the Simple Scents in Life

Maybe it’s my relatively weak sense of smell, or maybe it’s just that my overzealous obsession with makeup leaves little room for perfume-buying… either way, I’ve never been much of a fragrance girl. Sure, I like to smell nice (who doesn’t?), but I’ve never really considered the act of choosing a fragrance to be a can’t-miss step in completing my overall beauty look or “identity.” So, for all the girls who want to just-plain-smell-nice without the fuss, CLEAN has created a 5-piece rollerball set dedicated to the simplest, freshest, purest fragrance pleasures in life. The result? Light, wearable scents in fragrances like Fresh Laundry, Rain, and Warm Cotton. I know, I know, they sound a little too literal and not, well, pretty… but mixed with your own natural scent and skin chemistry, they’re addictively fresh and even a little floral. Keep them on-hand to freshen up mid-day at the office, after the gym, or just as a light, clean, everyday scent that’s never overpowering.

Pucker Up & Stock Up on Tarte’s New Power Pigments

Why is it that lipstick in crayon or pencil form is so much more fun than your traditional tube? Maybe it’s my childhood obsession with art supplies, combined with my knack for hoarding any and all lip products, but whatever the case, Tarte’s Power Pigments are pretty darn hard to resist. Part balm, part lipstick, part lip stain, these handy tints serve triple-duty, saving you some serious room in your on-the-go makeup bag. Inspired by the brand’s newly-redesigned cheek tints, these punchy lip pencils nourish with a moisturizing combo of shea butter, vitamins, and a dash of refreshing mint, and deliver shiny, bold color for a flattering pout that lasts for hours. The twist-up applicator — no sharpener necessary — make them great for slathering on some quick color on the go or for mid-day touch-ups. With color pay-off this awesome, keep in mind that a little goes a long way, so don’t be intimidated by the $24 price tag!
