As May’s beauty launches predicted, the days of wearing heavy foundations are numbered. June is here, which means we’re switching to wearing swimsuits 24/7 and lightweight beauty products to weather summer’s sweltering temperatures.
This month, beauty brands are making it well known that hot girl summer is synonymous with dewy girl summer. They’ve launched a slew of products that are all about dewiness, hydration, and glow. If you want to know exactly what those are, we’ve rounded up this June’s best beauty launches below:
Ilia Balmy Tint Hydrating Lip Balm
BTS’s latest single “Butter” could be used to describe Ilia’s reimagined lip balm best. Yes, these new lip balms are indeed “smooth like butter” and I’m obsessed. Their buttery formula features Salicornia, rosehip seed oil, and shea butter to leave your lips soft and hydrated. Each shade is buildable depending on the look you want to go with!
Ilia Daylite Highlighting Powder + NightLite Bronzing Powder
Ilia also has you covered in the highlighting and bronzer departments. Keep your skin shimmering all day long with these powder formula products that are incredibly easy to apply thanks to the built-in mirror.
Glossier’s Beyoncé-approved product now has new shades. The seamless cream eye shadow known as Lidstar is now available in Bun, a soft champagne with gold shimmer, and Branch, a rich bronze with gold pearl, for $18 each. However, if you want to try them both out and save some $$$, they are also part of the Lidstar Duo, which retails for $30.
Ceremonia Rescue & Repair Kit
Taking care of your hair this summer just got easier thanks to Ceremonia and its latest Rescue & Repair Kit that includes the Guava Rescue Spray ($18) and Guava Leave-in Conditioner ($20). The detangler protects against heat and harmful UV Rays through its star ingredient, Guava, while other ingredients like the Butterfly Ginger and Avocado act as a shield to blue light, pollution, and heat styling tools. The leave-in conditioner hydrates your hair, giving it that extra shine, and also added protection.
Keys Soulcare Bodycare
Keys has launched a new line of body care, which includes this nourishing body and hand wash that’s formulated to prevent skin stripping and drying. Instead, it draws moisture to the skin for a radiant glow with ingredients like shea and cocoa butter.
Lime Crime Sunkissed Sticks
Get that sunkissed glow even if you avoid the sun with Lime Crime’s new Glimmering Skin Sticks.
Available in nine different shades, this lightweight formula glides easily on the skin to highlight your inner glow.

M.A.C Pride & Joy Liquidlast Liner Vault
This 11-shade eyeliner assortment is much more than just pretty colors! M.A.C will be donating 100% of the selling price to the Hetrick-Martin Institute through the M·A·C VIVA GLAM Fund, which helps to fight for the empowerment of the LGBTQIA+ community.
Boy Smells Pride Radiance Collection
Instead of the usual Pride colors, Boy Smells opted that feature each candle in this collection in a beautiful ecru tone, representing solidarity for all marginalized communities. 10% of all sales from the Pride Collection will be donated to LGTBQIA+ causes from June until July, with a minimum donation of $100,000 going to The Trevor Project.

M.A.C Magic Extension 5mm Fibre Mascara
MAC Cosmetics is ushering in the summer with a brand new mascara. The new Magic Extension 5mm Fibre Mascara promises to, at least visually, give the same results as false lashes without the commitment of price tag. Not only that, but the brand says the formula is infused with “an olive oil derivative” for a “conditioning hit.” If you want to achieve that super long feathery look while also looking natural, this is the mascara for you – just note that it is not waterproof.

Packaged in palm-sized books reminiscent of diaries that scream nostalgia, these silicone-free palette pigments are rich and include sustainably sourced Sea Buckhorn to nourish and smooth the skin.
