With so many new beauty products launching every week, it can be hard to keep up, especially when it comes to discovering new favorites that are actually worth a purchase.

Follow along below for our top five favorite beauty launches of May 2021, and shop them all below.


By Mina Al Sheikhly Mascara

When it comes to a market as saturated as beauty, there is a lot of integrity in doing one thing, and doing it exceptionally well. After three years of research into the perfect mascara formula, Mina Al Sheikhly has arrived with the launch of two absolutely incredible versions. By Mina Al Sheikhly focuses on volume with its ‘Elevated’ formula, and on precision with its ‘Tailored’ formula, but extra volumizing benefits can be found when combining them both. Gorgeous marbled packaging elevates this luxe mascara selection, and both are available at Ounass. Be prepared for people to start asking you where you got your lash extensions done.

Biologique Recherche 'Sérum de Teint'

Hybrid combinations have become increasingly popular in the past year, straddling the best of both worlds when it comes to skincare and makeup. Instead of slathering on serum, waiting for it to absorb, and then applying your makeup, Biologique Recherche’s brilliant ‘Sérum de Teint’ brings together results-driven skincare and high-quality makeup coverage in one bottle. Not only does ‘Sérum de Teint’ block pollution and blue light, but it also evens out your complexion and hydrates it simultaneously. Beloved by celebs like Jennifer Lopez, Molly Sims, and Gwyneth Paltrow, Biologique Recherche offers some of the best proven skincare formulas in the market.

Acqua di Parma 'Bergamotto di Calabria la Spugnatura'

Acqua di Parma’s new unisex fragrance ‘Bergamotto di Calabria la Spugnatura’ is sunshine in a bottle. Used by harvesting the ‘Golden Fruit’ – a.k.a. bergamot – as its heart, the scent is enhanced by fruity flourishes of mandarin, orange, and grapefruit. Mineral accents such a ferula intermingle with floral notes of geranium that add a softness to the bright fragrance citrus elements. Bergamot is a note that plays well with others, but never has it smelled as rich or as robust as this version from Acqua di Parma.

Note Cosmetique

Just in time for summer, Note Cosmetique has a dropped a fresh line of beauty products that bring the perfect amount of sun-kissed glow to your look. The new line-up includes a creamy textured ‘Volume One Touch’ mascara, a clever waterproof ‘Brow Addict’ brow-shaper formulated with nourishing walnut extract, a plumping ‘Le Volume’ lipgloss, and a 12-shadow ‘Love At First Sight Eyeshadow’ palette with three different finishes (metallic, satin, and matte) available.

However, my stand-out faves from the new launch are the ‘Translucent Setting Powder’, which quickly became my favorite for its flawless finish and its refusal to settle into pores or make my skin look cakey. It’s one of the best translucent powders I’ve ever used for setting my makeup. I also fell in love with the dewy, gorgeous look of the ‘Baked Highlighter’, which is formulated with pearls and gave my skin the most radiant, long-lasting glow ever.

Viktor & Rolf 'Flowerbomb Dew'

Another fresh summer fragrance has arrived, courtesy of Viktor & Rolf. After the massive success of ‘Flowerbomb’, a new version has just been launched called ‘Flowerbomb Dew’ that plays up the popularity of its “floriental” predecessor. The idea is for the fragrance to melt into your skin, for a “second skin” effect that lasts all day and all night. Created with Dewy Rose Accord at its heart, cozy musks and floral iris elements interact to form a sensual and enveloping fragrance that doesn’t overwhelm (despite the term ‘bomb’ in the name).
