10 Beauty product launches you have to check out this summer
While you're out soaking up the sun this summer, don't forget to stop by your favorite beauty hotspot to check out these cool new product releases from some of our favorite brands (and a few new faves too).
1. Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara
They've done it again. The mascara genies at Lancôme have broken beauty boundaries with Grandiôse, the first ever Swan-Neck mascara. Curved at a 25-degree angle, the Swan-Neck wand gives lashes lift, length and volume by mimicking the curves of your face and grabbing lashes at the base to fan them out and nix nasty smudging. Even better? The wand's three-dimensional curve mixes and keeps the formula fresh by sealing air into the bottle.
Availability: Grandiôse hits Lancome.com and Lancôme counters nationwide Aug. 6
2. Dial Acne Control Collection
The brand's first foray into the acne realm features a trio of body acne fighters. The Face Wash, Body Wash and Face & Body Bar work overtime to banish pesky body acne resulting from workouts, general sweat and more. Dial worked with dermatologists to create the exciting new line.
Availability: Available July 2014 at grocery, drug and mass retailers nationwide
Price: $5-7 for the collection
3. fantasy Britney Spears Stage Edition Eau de Parfum
Oops she did it again. Britney Spears adds to her line of successful scents with her newest fragrance called fantasy Britney Spears Stage Edition. Inspired by some of Brit's most memorable moments on stage, the fragrance itself is the ever popular fantasy scent and features a limited edition collectible bottle. The cool packaging pays homage to one of Britney's most talked about performances, "I'm a Slave 4 U" from the 2001 MTV Video Music Awards (aka the python performance), and the bottle features a snakeskin-patterned wrap embellished with jewel-toned accents.
Price: $38 for 30 milliliters
4. Dolce & Gabbana Summer Glow Collection
Get ready to glow your way through the rest of summer with Dolce & Gabbana's new makeup releases. Vibrant hues and innovative formulas rule the collection, which features nail lacquers, eye makeup, lip colors and more. Our favorite? The Gloss Fusion Lipstick in Orchid.
Availability: Available now at Saks Fifth Avenue and select Macy's, Nordstrom and Sephora stores
5. Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Gold Couture
Summer is all about indulgence — the ice cream, the long, lazy days by the pool — and we've found a treat you don't have to feel guilty about. Juicy Couture's newest fragrance is a decadent blend of wild berry, golden amber, sandalwood and melted caramel notes and is housed in a sassy, high fashion bottle any stylish gal is sure to adore.
Availability: Available now at Macy's
Price: $92 for 3.4 ounces
6. Boots No7 Youthful Eye Serum
Say bye bye to the signs of aging we all dread with Boots No7 Serum Youthful Eye Serum. The new release (the first clinically-proven Boots No7 serum specifically for the delicate eye area) targets the five main signs of aging thanks to a powerful blend of vitamins C and A, hyaluronic acid, peptides and cassava. See ya later, crow's feet, dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles.
Availability: Coming soon to Target stores and Target.com this August
7. Covergirl #instaGLAM Collection
Inspired by generation NOW, Covergirl's new #instaGLAM Collection (newly released this month) is hoping to empower women to create "like-worthy" beauty looks so they can be ready in a snap. The colorful line features everything from a shiny lip gloss collection to beautiful XL nail gels and the typical foundations, concealers and mascaras.

8. Tula Skin Care Line
Skin care that features probiotic technology? We're intrigued. The Tula skin care collection features a face cleanser, eye cream, day and night cream and face serum created by gastroenterologist Dr. Roshini Raj. Filled with vitamins A, C and E, rice protein, omegas-3 and -6 fatty acids and fruit extracts, the collection is rich in antioxidants and helps prevent the signs of aging. The brand just launched a collection exclusively with QVC and we can't wait to get our hands on it.
Availability: Available exclusively on QVC.com
9. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Face + Body Stick Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 70
We've long been fans of Neutrogena's affordable and skin-friendly SPF formulas, so we were psyched to find out the brand was releasing this sunscreen stick. Easy to apply (hands and mess-free!), this SPF combines a weightless feel and non-shiny finish to provide broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection.
Availability: Drugstores nationwide and online
10. Nails Inc. Alexa Chung Fabric Collection
What would summer be without a sassy pedicure to show off your new sandals? Boring if you ask us. Fresh off their announcement of a kale nail polish, Nails Inc. releases a new fabric collection with the stylish Alexa Chung. Featuring six lacquers inspired by some of our favorite fabrics (think leather, lace, silk, sequins, camo and cashmere), the line gives a new meaning to textured manis.
Availability: Available this August at nailsinc.com and Sephora
