Ariana Grande’s New R.E.M. Beauty Drop Nails the Perfect Summer Lipstick Look

Following Ariana Grande’s second drop this past spring, the third installment of R.E.M. Beauty was released today. This new beauty drop is titled Chapter 3: on your collar, and it’s full of the lip product essentials you’ll want this summer. Grande’s approach to makeup can be boiled down to two words: classic nostalgia. The singer embodies elegance while simultaneously channeling the retro eras of the ’50s and ’60s—almost always modeled by a high ponytail, a cat eyeliner, and a bold lip. For this newest line, R.E.M. Beauty lets us into Ariana’s secret: Her lips always take the center stage.

The collection has been created to provide endless mix-and-match lip wardrobing options with five new products—a classic lipstick, a liquid-to-matte lipstick, lip liner, lip oil, and lip balm—all of which are available in plush and plump textures and in throwback and future-forward colors. You’ll also be delighted to see that the new lip items are available in cream, liquid to matte, cushiony and hydrating finishes. It’s a collection that has a bit of everything for everyone, and isn’t that Grande’s approach to just about everything she does? Oh, and FYI: The price point ranges from $14 to $19—could this be even better?

Heard enough? We get it. You like it, you want it, you got it. Let’s get into the deets of each lip product from this new Ariana Grande R.E.M. Beauty drop.

R.E.M. Beauty On Your Collar Matte Lipstick

The classic lipstick is available in ten captivating shades that range from a beige rose called Kiss Me, to a dark berry red Heartbreaker. Get a satin finish with this rich and creamy formula. You only need one stroke for it to look beautifully vivid. It’s infused with milk thistle and hydrolyzed collagen, both of which are lauded for their ultra-hydrating properties.

The brand recommends prepping your lips with a thin layer of its Everything Nice lip balm to create a smooth canvas.

A game-changing liquid lipstick, this supercharged pick will take away your transfer woes. The color lasts up to 16 hours without fading or transferring. Can we get a yuh to that? It’s also formulated with a proprietary polymer technology that glides on with a weightless texture. Although it has a quick-drying matte finish, it doesn’t dry out lips, a rare and positive feature among its class. Additionally, it has an infusion of hydraberry that is known for its optimal hydration properties.

It is available in nine shades: warm peach, nude wifey, tan rose, hottie brown nude, and yummm chestnut rose.

Create fuller looking lips with these stunning high pigment liner pencils. As would only be right, each liner pairs perfectly with both the matte liquid lipsticks and classic cream lipsticks collections, but that doesn’t mean you need to follow any rules. Mixing and matching is always more fun. The liner is formulated with next gen waxes that have a creamy feel, gliding onto your lips seamlessly. Another thing we love about this liner is that it is a propel repel pencil that has a built-in sharpener.

Time to get drippy with this non-sticky lip oil. Lipstick might last longer, but you can never go wrong with a bit of shine. This essential drip lip oil delivers a sheer wash of mega glossy shine with a hint of color. It merges the texture of a lip gloss with the benefits of a moisturizing oil, so this the hack you need in your lineup. It’s made with a derivative of coconut oil for extra hydration.

Customize it to your taste and pick your scent of four: pickin petals (sheer peachy pink with rosy scent and chamomile), raspberry drip (sheer raspberry pink with raspberry scent and ashwagandha), mint condition (sheer aquatic blue with minty scent and menthol), and lavender kiss (sheer cool lavender with white tea scent and lavender extract).

This lightweight balm is your key to soft, smooth, and fuller looking lips. It has a non-greasy formula that is the perfect first step for any multi-layered lip combo. With its clear and dewy finish and soft shimmer, you’ll want to wear this one every day.
