It’s summer holiday season, which means one thing: golden, glowing skin is in. And luckily for us, transforming into a summer goddess no longer equates to hours of frying under the sun. From Fenty Beauty’s ‘Body Lava’ luminizing gel to Huda Beauty’s new ‘N.Y.M.P.H.’ body highlighter, there’s an intense revival of shimmery oils and lotions to help us cheat the sun’s harsh UV rays. So, when Anastasia Beverly Hills announced that it would be joining the ranks with not one, but two glow-inducing products, we couldn’t contain ourselves.
The brand will release both a ‘Shimmer Body Oil’ (which we’re already declaring a summer essential) and a ‘Loose Pigment’ collection. Other than giving you radiant skin, what makes the ‘Shimmer Body Oil’ so great is that it works on all skin tones and is made with an absorptive dry-oil formula that isn’t greasy. This essentially means no mess, no smearing, no stained clothes – a.k.a. all the reasons we’ve been wary of shimmery oils in the past.
Because there can never be too much shimmer this season, the ‘Loose Pigment’ launch features five dreamy shades: ‘Icy’, ‘Crystal’, ‘Daiquiri’, ‘Sand’, and ‘Desert’. Though both launches won’t hit shelves until June 6, we can already envision using its soft rose, silver, and golden hues on our faces and across our bodies for an all-over shimmer. Let’s just say, if summer could be packaged into a beauty line, it would be this Anastasia Beverly Hills drop.
