We thought last year topped the list when it came to exciting and innovative beauty launches, but it turns out that 2022 is poised to give it a serious run for its money. The list of beauty products that are launching is already seriously impressive. Below you’ll discover smarter-than-ever skin care, phenomenal foundations, the first-ever completely customized hair oil, and so much more from some of our favorite brands including Shiseido, Clinique, Living Proof, Pantene, and Make Up For Ever. Even the most basic daily essentials are getting a new and improved upgrade: think a self-setting concealer that takes creasing and caking out of the equation, and a night cream that gives new meaning to the term beauty sleep. So start saving, get scrolling, and mark your calendars for all the brand-new beauty product launches about to hit store shelves. You can thank us later.
Vitamin C may not be the new kid on the skin-care ingredient block, but it remains one of the most popular year after year. Building on the success of their Violet-C Radiance Mask, this new oil- and fragrance-free serum packs a whopping 20 percent concentration of vitamin C (and two different types at that) to deliver both instant and long-term results. A 10 percent concentration of AHAs joins the mix, too, all working together to leave your skin firmer, smoother, and noticeably more glow-y.
From the brand that brought you one of our favorite makeup applicators of all time (it’s won a Best of Beauty Award countless years in a row), comes this face mist, which promises to render makeup touch-ups obsolete. The two-phase solution combines hyaluronic acid and antioxidant-enriched water with a milky oil that, when mixed and spritzed on the skin, delivers just the right amount of moisture and radiance to revive any existing makeup.
Personalized beauty is one trend that isn’t going anywhere in 2019. Case in point: Clinique iD, a customized hydration system based around the signature Dramatically Different Moisturizer lotions, which is set to be the brand’s biggest launch since 2010’s Even Better Clinical line. Step one: Choose from three hydrating bases, based on how much moisture your skin needs. Step two: Add one of the five active cartridge concentrates, each of which targets a specific complexion concern. Step three: Get ready for seriously glow-y skin all year long.
File under major skin-care news: This best-selling cream is getting a revamp, now reformulated to be entirely paraben-free. (Taking it one step further, the brand says all of their products will be paraben-free by the end of 2019.) But don’t worry, you won’t be able to tell that your beloved moisturizer has changed; it took Kiehl’s scientists five years and more than 114 different versions to come up with this final formula, which feels identical to the OG.
