The good news: It's officially summer. The bad news: We're still in the midst of a global pandemic. While this July might not be full of outdoor concerts, dinner at your favorite restaurants, and vacation to faraway destinations, there are a ton of new beauty products to help you have some summer fun while social distancing.

Is your salon open but you still don't feel comfortable to book an appointment? Better Natured's at-home hair dye has you covered. Going on a ton of long walks because getting fresh air is worth dealing with the humidity? Slather on Glossier's oil-control gel moisturizer in the morning. Want to cover up that stress pimple without your makeup melting off or getting cakey? CoverGirl's concealer is your solution.

Here, we've rounded up 15 just-launched and soon-to-launch products worth trying this month.
