7 watermelon beauty products in honour of the great Harry Styles

As of May 18th, the world felt a little sweeter (and ‘shooketh’) thanks to the one and only Harry Styles, who finally dropped the music video for Watermelon Sugar after he was spotted filming it back in January (a much simpler time where group gatherings were a go). If you weren’t googly-eyed for the popstar before, you certainly are now, and with a previously untapped jealously for the watermelon Styles caresses in the video, we’re sharing our favourite watermelon beauty products to get you on a watermelon sugar high.

Too Faced Watermelon Slice Face And Eye Palette

This music video pioneered a cultural reset—rather than wishing we were one of the models in the video, we suddenly aspired to be the watermelon (I can’t believe I’ve just written that out loud). Inspired by the shades of a fresh watermelon (and scented like one too), consider this palette your first port of call in transforming into the sweet, Styles-favoured fruit.

Glow Recipe Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner

It’s new, it’s already beloved, and we wouldn’t be surprised if the ‘watermelon sugar high’ Styles describes is the feeling you get after using this one-of-a-kind toner. As Glow Recipe co-founder Sarah Lee described it to The Memo, “the Watermelon Glow PHA+BHA Pore-Tight Toner is an aqua peel facial in a bottle, inspired by the gentle, pore-refining facials we would experience in Korea that simultaneously decongest and remove blackheads while infusing the skin with hydration for an instant glow.”

Volition Beauty Snow Mushroom Water Serum

As refreshing and hydrating as watermelon is on a hot summer’s day, so too is this thirst-quenching serum from Volition Beauty. Alongside magical snow mushroom, it’s formulated with juicy watermelon extract which is a rich source of vitamins C and A, guaranteed to brighten skin. Think of this serum as a new, fruity take on the hyaluronic you know and love.

Too Faced Dew You Foundation

A slightly more subtle transition into embodying a watermelon, this underrated foundation from Too Faced is your first step to wooing Styles with watermelon-spiked, juicy-looking skin. A gel-cream formula available in 20 shades, this foundation is just as dreamy and inclusive and as the music video itself.

Ciaté Watermelon Burst Lip Oil

This conditioning lip oil with watermelon extract, avocado and jojoba combines the hydration of a balm with the reflective shine of a gloss and you can guarantee we’ll be drenching our lips in it, stat. There’s no doubt in our mind that this is what Styles’ lips taste (and feel) like as he bites into that blessed chunk of watermelon as the first chorus hits.

Mecca Cosmetica Hydra Cheek Tint and Illuminating Balm Duo

So you’ve given your skin, complexion, eyes and lips the watermelon treatment, and it’s time your cheeks got in on the action too. Like a kiss on the cheek from the heartthrob himself, this cream blush in the shade ‘Watermelon’ (what else) melts into your cheeks to create the same flush you naturally exude within the first minute of the music video.
