Raise your hand if you're like us and have been suffering from a serious case of the summer envy. Although we know we have a few more weeks (OK, months) of winter left and even spring before being reunited with warmer temps, we're certainly getting our fair dose of summer-inspired launches. First, Lano's coconut lip balm and hand cream gave us a tropical fix. And then IGK came in hot with a vacay-ready leave-in conditioner. And now BECCA is tackling our need for summer makeup with its new Ocean Jewels collection.
Coming soon, our NEW Ocean Jewels Palette! Inspired by the rich colors of the sea🐚🌊5 never-before-seen highlighter shades 😍 (L-R) coral crystal, citrine, aquamarine, pink pyrite, & sunstone #beccaoceanjewels . . . . #beccacosmetics #beccacosmetics #highlighter #itsnew #palette #makeup #mua #new #ocean #jewels #makeuptime @trendmood1
We spotted BECCA teasing this mermaid-esque launch this weekend on Instagram, and we were instantly filled with memories of summer days past. So far, the Ocean Jewels Collection seems to consist of a highlighting palette, an eye palette, and an iridescent gloss fit for anyone seeking that dewy, ethereal glow that can has sun goddess written all over it.
First up in the collection, there's the Ocean Jewels Highlighter Palette ($47.20, QVC). This new palette will contain five never-before-seen exclusive highlighting shades in Coral Crystal, Citrine, Aquamarine, Pink Pyrite, and Sunstone. Because this is BECCA, and because it's a decadent highlighter, this palette features powders that are actually "enriched with ultra-fine, luminescent pearls that absorb, reflect, and refract light to amplify your natural radiance." Sign us up, please.
Next up, there's the Ocean Jewels Eye Palette ($39, Amazon). This circular palette reminds us of the stunning Apres Ski eyeshadow palette in terms of packaging and pan layout. But instead of rosy champagne hues, this palette features seven brand new bronze and pearlescent shades in creamy matte, metallic, and shimmer finishes. According to BECCA'S teaser, shades include (clockwise from the top): Seashell, Abalone, Ocean Jasper, Tourmaline, Sandstone, Spirit Quartz, and Mermaid Pearl in the center of the palette.
Lastly, there's a clear, high-shine gloss called the Ocean Jewels Liptuitive Glow Gloss ($25, Sephora). Other than being a shimmering pearlized-gloss, it boasts a nourishing formula that actually enhances your lips' own natural hues. Plus, if you ask us, it looks like the perfect way to master that prismatic glow we keep telling you is going to be huge in 2018!
You can shop the new BECCA Ocean Jewels lineup very soon exclusively Sephora and BECCA's website come February 1.
