May’s Best New Beauty Launches Deliver Your Summertime Glow

NYLON’s picks for the best beauty buys of the month.

When it comes to summer beauty, if it doesn’t get us glowing, we don’t want it. Dewy skin, shiny hair, and effortless makeup never look better than on a vacation, on a boat, or even just at a rooftop happy hour. But even for those who don’t get out as much, it’s still so appealing to embrace the summertime vibe. That’s why there are beauty products that can help you appear vacation-y all season long, even if you never make it to a beach.

Tap ahead for the best beauty launches we tried in May 2022 that give you your best sun-kissed and happy sheen.

Ilia’s new tinted serum instantly gives your skin a more even tone and a dewy finish, but also helps brighten your skin over time with vitamin C and niacinamide.
