Each month, Fashionista editors try a *lot* of beauty products. And while not every formula we test is a winner, we're constantly unearthing new favorites. Here, we've rounded up our latest hair, skin, fragrance, wellness and makeup discoveries — whether fresh-to-market drops or merely recent additions to our personal routines.
In case you missed it, July was hot. Like, rolling blackout, heat advisory, all-you-can-think-or-talk-about-is-air-conditioning hot. In New York City, where the majority of team Fashionista is based, the month was full of oppressively humid, 90-plus-degree days. And yet, we were still expected to go places and do things?! Rude.
Discussing the groan-inducing weather and complaining about sweat, frizzy hair and melt-y makeup gets old quickly, so to help cope with all of these summer-in-the-city gripes, we turned our attention to the Fashionista beauty closet. This month, we discovered blessedly lightweight, skin-protecting sunscreens; travel-friendly, perfectly seasonal fragrances; amazing-smelling, frizz-busting hair products; playfully bold additions to our makeup bags; and even practical, utilitarian fixes for the season's little annoyances, like less-than-presentable sandal feet and bug bites.
Click through the gallery below to see which products made the cut as our editors' favorites for July — and shop them all for yourself.
