I will pick 65 degrees and sunny over snow-covered city streets at any point in time. Lucky for me, March has brought my ideal weather—and dozens of new beauty launches perfectly suited for the seasonal switch. Lightweight moisturizers have replaced heavy creams and cream blushes have added brightness to my makeup routine. New body lotions and oils have restored hydration to my incredibly flaky and ashy legs. And, new concealers have replaced heavy foundations.

Single-handedly, I’ve tested over 50 products this month. The rest of the Marie Claire team has done their fair share of swatching, skincare experimentation, and foundation applications, as well. Now, halfway through the month, we’ve successfully boiled down all the newness into the best 13 March beauty launches. I found my new go-to serum-foundation. Beauty Director Deena Campbell found a gentle and effective exfoliating treatment. Beauty Writer Sophia Vilensky discovered a matte lipstick that she’s wearing day in and day out. Senior Fashion and Beauty News Editor Halie LeSavage has upgraded her body care routine with Augustinus Bader’s The Geranium Rose Body Oil.
