Spring is finally here, and even when it still feels kinda like winter, we’re getting ready for warmer days, lighter outfits, and brighter makeup. While beauty is a year-round subject, there’s nothing as exciting as spring launches as the new season brings new shades and textures with it.
From skincare boosters to new formulations, collabs, and stunning makeup, the new season comes packed with new possibilities to treat your skin the right way and play with new shades. Are you up for it? Here are some of the most exciting K-beauty launches for spring!
Kaja – Moon Crystal Collection
Jelly eyeshadows are here to stay and Kaja knows it. This sparkling eye pigment line features eight different shades, and let me tell you: it’s so weightless you won’t even feel you’re wearing makeup. Enhanced with real crystal powders for a vivid, shimmering finish, these are soon to be the must-have makeup item for the season.
Glow Recipe – Pineapple-C Bright Serum
Did you know pineapple juice is naturally rich in vitamin C? Well, the creators behind Glow Recipe definitely knew and decided to put it to good use. This brightening serum formulated with 22 percent pure pineapple juice features vitamin C complex, AHAs, and Bromelain Enzymes, which together help brighten, exfoliate, and hydrate skin all at once. But that’s not it! There’s also hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, aloe, and chamomile in the formula to hydrate, soothe, and calm sensitive skin. A true godsend in front of our eyes.
Sulwhasoo – Bloomstay Vitalizing Line
It’s true, you should never let pretty packaging be the reason you buy skincare, but how good is it when the formula is just as exquisite as the bottle? Sulwhasoo’s newly launched Bloomstay Vitalizing line helps prevent premature signs of aging and gets skin visibly smooth, resilient, and strong. Formulated with plum blossom, this collection will be your best friend to fight against all those nasty environment aggressors such as sun, pollution, and stress. Looking for a natural, healthy glow that stays put all day long? Then this is the collection your skin-dreams are made of.
Laneige – Lip Glowy Balm
At this point, we’re all very familiar with Laneige lip masks, right? They’re by far one of the most popular nighttime lip treatments out there and with good reason! But the brand knew they couldn’t stop just there. The mask was a great sleepytime weapon, but what about daytime? That’s how they came up with the Lip Glowy Balm — and yes, just as its counterpart, it comes in four delicious scents. Formulated with murumuru and shea butter, two very nourishing ingredients, this balm is not only great to keep dehydrated lips at bay but also to use as a primer before applying color.
Neogen – Real Vita C Powder Lemon
What a bright time to be alive! Let me introduce you to your newest obsession. Think of this DIY powder form of vitamin C as a booster for any and all your skincare steps. You can mix it into any of your skincare products and use it anywhere in your routine: it will be just as powerful. Formulated with 17 percent ascorbic acid — AKA vitamin C — this powder helps brighten, protect, and improve your skin’s texture and tone in a matter of weeks.
Hera x Jennie – Red Vibe Lip Collection
This spring exclusive features two things we love: intense, velvety red lipstick and BLACKPINK’s Jennie. The high pigmented line offers overwhelmingly beautiful and rich colors in three different formats: lip tint, lip liquid, and lipstick. The intense yet simple red color they chose is so perfect it goes well with every skin shade and lasts long hours.
VT x BT21 – Pop My Beauty collection
Because just one was not enough, VT came out with a new collection featuring BT21 characters, and it’s so cute we can’t decide what we want the most. Featuring lip liners, lip palettes, eyeshadows, pore pacts, lip tints, concealers, foundations, lippies, lip lacquers, and more, this new line features the same characters but in comic-like aesthetic, accompanied by brighter colors and deepest shades.
Tony Moly – MONSTA X Lip Care Sticks
Lip tints were just the beginning. The members of MONSTA X are now out there to take care of our lips by launching a collection featuring super hydrating lip balms to keep them from chapping. The best part? You get to choose which member you want on the packaging, which turns into a photocard!
Dr. Jart – Focuspot Micro Tip Patches
This right here is pure skincare technology. We’re all already very familiar with pimple patches, but have you heard about micro tips? This set of patches features self-dissolving micro tips that melt deep into the skin’s surface in order to target those stubborn blemishes, fine lines, dark circles, dark spots, and more. I know, mind-blowing. You can choose from four different types: “Focuspot Blemish” for pigmentation and breakouts, “Focuspot Dark Spot” to fade dark spots and pack skin with antioxidants, “Focuspot Dark Circle” to improve microcirculation underneath skin, and “Focuspot Line & Wrinkle” to improve skin’s elasticity.
Etude House – Flower Cheek Brushes
This is one of those things you need just because they’re pretty, and that’s more than reason enough to go for it. These cheek brushes from Etude House’s spring collection are just so beautiful they will brighten up your makeup cabinet. Shaped in the form of spring flowers, these are perfect to get a light finish from your powder blush.
