Even though we’re still living the lockdown life here in TO, we can still get excited about new winter beauty launches. If you’re a beauty addict like me, then you know there’s nothing better than cracking into new skincare or makeup products. The excitement is real and these days, it’s all about the little things, am I right or am I right? These new winter beauty launches are definitely worth having on your radar. Some are new brands entering Canada, skincare picks that’ll turn any dull day into a spa day, and even some makeup goodies that’ll have you dolled up and feeling fab!
Here are all the new beauty product launches to know about this winter!
Got dry skin? Well, Dermalogica’s latest miracle product has you covered. The Melting Masque is truly one of a kind because it comes out like a solid oil (similar to coconut oil) but when rubbed in your hands, melts into an oil. It hydrates like nothing else I’ve ever seen and I like to apply it at the end of my evening skincare routine to lock all the products in for even more hydration.
Say goodbye to the Sunday Scaries for good folks because MONDAY Haircare is officially in town. The New Zealand brand has launched in Canada and can be found in your local Walmart beauty aisle and soon it’ll be coming to a Shoppers Drug Mart near you. This is the world’s first salon-quality haircare brand at an affordable price and it’s available in four different ranges: Smooth, Volume, Gentle, and Moisture, the brand is proud to be SLS & paraben-free, PETA certified as cruelty-free, and all the packaging is fully recyclable and made with recyclable materials. Run, don’t walk because not only will your hair thank you, but these bottles will look amazing in your shower!
It’s no secret that Dove is a leader when it comes to body care but did you know the brand has launched into the world of hair? Dove’s Hair Therapy range has three different product lines available: Dry Scalp Care, Breakage Remedy, and Hydration Spa and they’re all set to help you achieve your hair goals thanks to the skincare-inspired ingredients. Word has it that you can expect to see smoother hair after just one wash – sign me up!
Looking for hardworking skincare products that don’t cost a zillion bucks? Look no further than Keys Soulcare. Developed with Alicia Keys and board-certified dermatologist and co-founder of clean beauty pioneer W3LL PEOPLE, Dr. Renée Snyder, these goodies are pure magic. The brand is inspired by Alicia’s own skincare journey and her love of ancient beauty rituals and it’s all about nourishing your whole self – body, mind, and soul. I personally can’t wait to try the Harmony Mask that detoxifies with activated charcoal but also hydrates thanks to Manuka honey.
Struggling with dull skin? Makeup and all-around beauty pro Charlotte Tilbury is at the rescue with her latest innovation. The Super Radiance Resurfacing Facial is like a facial in a tube thanks to the magical blend of acids that slough away dead skin and reveal bright and radiant skin almost instantly. Seeing as we can’t get to a facialist these days, this will be a welcome product on any skincare guru’s vanity!
Need some hair help? You’re not alone and this hair treatment mask is here for you. Sol de Janeiro is known for their cult-fave Brazilian Bum Bum Cream and this mask is set to be just as popular. Not only does it smell like a tropical vacay, but it’s also been proven to help mend split ends, improve hydration, and prevent damage.
If you’re sick of nail polishes that contain icky chemicals, then you’ll want to have this new Revlon nail polish on your radar. In addition to it being free from 20 controversial ingredients, it’s also vegan too! Seeing as we’re unable to get our gel manis these days, this polish is perfect as it works to strengthen nails and nourish. Did I mention it’s quick-drying and doesn’t require a base or topcoat?!
It’s about damn time we in Canada had access to an inclusive haircare brand for all hair types and textures. That’s why I couldn’t be more thrilled to share that Hairitage is now available north of the border at Walmart stores. Each product is priced reasonably at $11 and the whole range is vegan and cruelty-free, plus it smells amazing!
Sick of maskne getting in your way? Get rid of it for good with this Avene Cleanance Mattifying Emulsion that works to reduce sebum levels and mattify the skin for a less shiny appearance. It also provides 24-hour hydration and has a gorgeous light texture that also works great as a base for makeup.
Some folks swear by their 12-step skincare routines and others are always in search of more multi-use products that get the job done quickly and easily. This Fresh Kombucha No-Rinse Cleanser is for anyone looking to simplify their regime without sacrificing as it cleanses and removes makeup in one fell swoop.
We may not be wearing as much lipstick these days but your lips still need some TLC. Enter Charlotte Tilbury’s Hyaluronic Happikiss Lipstick Balm that’s exactly that – a balm meets lipstick for a dose of colour but also the hydration of a balm. Available in eight shades, including CT’s legendary Pillow Talk, you just can’t go wrong!
Bite Beauty is known for its lippies but did you know the brand recently launched a new mascara? Well, now you do and let me tell you — it’s major. Your lashes will love the dose of volume and drama they’ll get in just one swipe. Plus, it’s easy to remove too which all mascara wearers know is half the battle!
Luxury beauty products are great and all but when there’s a drugstore buy that’s just as good (if not better), then you need to know about it. Quo Beauty’s new Wake Me Up Palettes are just that. They are the cutest quad eyeshadows that deliver when it comes to pigment and staying power. All the colours work together to create a stunning and cohesive look that’s bound to stop traffic!
