The Best New Beauty Products This Month: Gucci’s First Makeup Launch, High-Impact Glitter, and More

The beauty industry can be overwhelming. Every day, there’s a miracle acid that your skin just has to have, or a new dry shampoo destined to give you Victoria’s Secret Angel waves. To cut down on all that noise, we’ve narrowed down this month’s must-have new launches, i.e., the ones you actually do need to know about. In May 2019, we got two new must-have products from Dior Beauty—the Diorshow Pump ’N’ Brow and Diorshow Pump ’N’ Volume HD Mascara—as well as a reformulated and bigger version of Glossier’s Supers serum collection. For those looking for something a bit more splashy, get your glitter on with the new limited-edition palette from HipDot, in collaboration with illustrator Hey Rooney. Here, the best beauty buys of May 2019.

Cosimo Sereni

Gucci has long been one of the few major luxury houses without a beauty range, but under Alessandro Michele’s creative vision, that’s all changed now. This month, Gucci revealed its first foray into cosmetics with a huge range of lipsticks that include sheers, balms, and plenty of high-pigmented shades in an array of colors.
