The winter that wouldn't end is finally behind us, which means it's officially time for lazy beach days, rooftop happy hours, and an epic haul of new beauty products to try out. Swap out your matte lipstick formulas for glosses and pencils, opt for smear-proof eyeliner, and pick-up a glow enhancing (SPF infused!) bronzer.

From the juiciest lip colors to the creamiest eyeshadows and the most dramatic mascaras, we've rounded up 15 summer beauty essentials for a fresh look straight through Labor Day. See them all after the jump.—Mina Shaghaghi
