A new face palette from Tom Ford, high impact mascara from Maybelline, deodorant wipes from Whish and plenty more where that came from when we sorted through hundreds of new beauty launches to find the best products to hit counters for Spring/Summer 2014. Here's a look at all the bodycare, skincare, makeup and nail polish to consider stocking up on now.
In addition to launching its cult Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 in a new shade, a bright fuchsia called Tulip, and coming out with a Sugar Lip Serum to target fine lines and wrinkles on and around lips, Fresh is launching UV protecting products, including, in July, this sunscreen lotion that also works to repair past damage. It's so lightweight it feels more like a regular moisturizer than it does a treatment or suncare product.
