What's New In Beauty
The must-have beauty buys we need this month.
Move over lip balms, oils are taking over. Just as we use them to help our parched faces, oils are now being hailed as the next big thing in beauty and of course, Dior have joined the oil game in true style. Available in six natural hues, the lip oil is enriched with cherry oil to protect from environmental factors and natural drying. Thanks to the non-sticky and non-greasy formula, lips are left smooth, shiny and plumped.
Drunk Elephant have done it again with yet another soon-to-be-cult product, this time in the form of a mask. Cooling and hydrating, the combination of omega fatty acids, powerful antioxidants, five forms of ceramides and other amazing ingredients boost your skins hydration, moisture levels and improve signs of damage and unevenness over night. We are sold.
If you're not using a serum then firstly, why not and secondly, get this one. With a whole host of ingredients, including any wrinkle fighter's best friend, hyaluronic acid, this unique formula plumps, smooths, tones and evens out the skin, promising results in just seven days.
While we have all known about the advantages of using scrubs on your body and face, scalp scrubs are a relatively new thing. Enter hair doyenne, Jen Atkin with her celeb-favourite hair brand, Ouai. Designed to be used once a week, the scrub firstly softens the skin and cleanses the skin with a dose of probiotics and is designed to be followed by the hair and body oil to hydrate and lock in moisture.
Any beauty junkie will know about TARTE's hit product, Shape Tape, and now comes a new addition to the line in the form of a pressed powder. With all the ingredients that made us fall in love with the line, the powder helps reduce redness, hyperpigmentation and balance skin tones for up to 12 hours. What's more, thanks to the unique peptide formula, fine lines and pores are given the heave-ho.
How can a foundation be both matte and luminous? Well, Burberry have managed it with their new foundation. Using their second-skin formula, the foundation blends seamlessly, giving you a finish that is both high coverage and natural. What's more, thanks to something they call life-proof technology, it's heat, humidity and pollution resistant and comes in a whopping 30 shades.
Did you know that Laura Mercier were the pioneers of the primer? Well they were. New from the brand, this primer uses porcelain flower extract and a blend of micronized pearls to give you a healthy glow and to reflect the light, refreshing dull or tired skin in a flash.
Let's face it, from time to time even the most naturally beautiful amongst us will suffer from bags and puffiness and rather than hiding piling on foundation, it's best to treat the problem at the source. Enter Mount Lai with their rose quartz eye tool, specifically designed to de-puff eye bags and awaken the eye area. What's more, if you use it with eye creams or serums, it even aids in the absorption into the skin.
Given the shock announcement this week that Kat Von D had sold her eponymous brand to Kendo, this might just be one of the last products that the beauty maven herself designed. Available in six shades, the blush is high-pigment, as you would expect from the brand and has a transfer-resistant formula meaning it stays on the skin all day.
