August's Best New Beauty Launches

We've reached the end of another month (how is tomorrow September already?!); one filled with quite a few genius new launches in the makeup and skincare department. With such an oversaturated market, it can be hard to weed through in order to discover your standbys. But, the more I try, the more tough my criteria seem to become for allowing one of said new launches into my daily beauty routine. With the introduction of many new lip products and a dewy base, these are the five products that broke through the wall (GOT reference, in case you were wondering) of my routine and became daily favorites.
Estēe Lauder Double Wear Nude Water Fresh Makeup - This über-fluid foundation feels so light on the skin, yet really perfects with a medium coverage. I love the finish of this foundation, it's on the dewier end of the satin spectrum, but I love how it subtly hydrates skin throughout the day...which means it prevents creasing or feathering. I know this is cliché, but it does give skin that "lit-from-within" radiance (sans shimmer) while managing to last throughout the work day. My one gripe is that it doesn't come equipped with a pump - but for how incredible this foundation is - I think I'll survive.

Guerlain Météorites Baby Glow Touch - I can't tell you how happy I am that Guerlain created a more portable, dewier version of their cult classic product. I've loved Météorites since I was young; in fact, they were one of my first luxury product purchases! This stick version looks just as dreamy in the stick as it does on the skin, providing a subtle blush and highlight in one. My favorite of the two available shades is Golden Glow, as it contains a golden pink, pearl highlight, and peachy tan color for a trio of seriously fresh luminosity.

La Prairie Skin Caviar Absolute Filler - I've spoken about this recently in a dedicated post, because it's just that amazing, however I couldn't highlight the best new launches without giving it mention. It's a not-so-simple moisturizer that acts as a skin-plumping filler thanks to Caviar Absolute, a more potent version of its classic Skin Caviar ingredient. It is jam-packed with nutrients that hydrate, lift, firm, and add radiance all while filling in fine lines and subtle wrinkles. Consider this a serious skin-health investment.

Giorgio Armani Ecstasy Shine Lipstick - #201 is my favorite, but I am in love with the formula of this lipstick in general. This is a moisturizing, creamy lipstick and I have to say I'm so glad to see all of the super drying lipsticks that have been trending for so long, go. I don't mind a matte red every now and then, but if it's healthy, plump lips with a sheen your after, these are your friend. With so many gorgeous shades to choose from, this will undoubtedly be a new favorite lipstick range.

Dior Addict Lip Tattoo - Luckily, there's still a way to get the lasting power of a matte lipstick, without the drying, wrinkled-lip effect that they often carried. Allow me to introduce you to the Dior Addict Lip Tattoo, a stain like lip glaze that has a dewy-satin finish and hydrates the lips while providing a long-lasting stain that remains for hours. I'm sure it will come as no surprise to you that the shade Natural Rosewood is my favorite, for its tawny rose hue that looks like an enhanced and slightly darkened version of my natural lip color.
