With the launch of two super sweet new shades, Summer Fridays has just expanded their fan-favourite lineup of 100 per cent vegan lip butter balms — and you’re going to want to keep them in your purse at all times for a quick hit of hydration and colour.  Meet Pink Sugar and Cherry, the sheer bubblegum and ruby-tinted balms new to the beloved collection and full of soothing shea butter and vegan waxes that leave lips soft and shiny. Since these lippies are a hot commodity in the beauty community, we suggest you grab them sooner rather than later at Sephora!

Saie launches its first full-on serum foundation

Saie’s launch of their Glowy Super Skin Weightless Hyperbounce Serum Foundation marks the beauty brand’s first official foray into foundation territory. Though the brand already carries tinted moisturizers, this foundation offers medium-coverage that’s buildable, for those days when you feel like you need just a little more. This lightweight product is packed with skin-loving ingredients and is formulated with 85 per cent skin-serum and 15 per cent weightless pigment. Polyglutamic acid, rice bran peptides, and two types of hyaluronic acid work within the serum to ensure that your skin is more hydrated with each use, and that skin texture improves over time. Plus, for easy application, the brand has also released The Base Foundation Brush which you can use to apply your new favourite foundation.

Listen up Los Angeles natives, uber-trendy Canadian beauty bar Formula Fig is officially open in the Golden State! From LED facials to microcurrent treatments to dermal fillers, Formula Fig does it all. And it looks good while doing it, too, with its iconic — and super Instagram-worthy — green monochromatic aesthetic. It’s a true west coast spa at heart (its flagship salon is in Vancouver), and the opening of this new location in the West Hollywood neighbourhood makes this launch a real-life California dream come true.

Inspired by the blank paper canvases that help us bring our best ideas to fruition, Diptyque Paris has just released a new fragrance collection titled “L’Eau Papier”. The collection pays homage to creativity and the pages we use to create, and includes two eau de toilette fragrances — 50ml and 100ml — housed in luxe bottles with abstract designs, by French artist Alix Waline, that conjure visions of ink in black and white. Prepare to take in olfactory notes of white musk, mimosa, and blonde woods accord upon spritzing.
