It's time to swing your beauty routine into full summer mode with the latest beauty launches. From the trendiest makeup to innovative and effective skincare formulas, these are the latest products worth adding to your wishlist.
With hot and humid weather on the horizon, your skin needs all the moisture it can get. Enter Clinique Moisture Surge Intense 72H Lipid-Replenishing Hydrator. Formulated with collagen-boosting vitamin B6, this cream-gel will hydrate your skin while leaving it feeling velvety-smooth for... yes, 72 hours.
Moisturiser meets primer meets highlighter. Trust Elemis to create a mega-multitasking product that not only nourishes the skin, but also leaves it looking brighter and dewy. While the product does border on makeup territory, it does still belong to the brand’s notable Superfood skincare range. Ingredients such as kombucha, fermented ginger extracts and green tea seed oil work together to help improve skin texture, boost radiance and balance the skin’s moisture barrier.
Prefer your bronzer in liquid form? Then you’ll love the new Strobe Face Glaze from M.A.C’s limited-edition Bronzer Collection. Considered a “face gloss”, it can either be worn layered over foundation or on bare skin, imparting a dewy tint in one of four shades: golden pinky-peach Magic Hour, rose-champagne Let’s Make Waves, deep bronze Bronzejour, and Like it Lilac That – a totally unexpected opalescent lavender sheen.
Keep your eyes looking as bright as the season ahead with Stila’s new One Step Correct treatment. Formulated with a blend of antioxidants and mineral complexes, this innovative and transparent serum features a triple-swirled cocktail of peach tones that primes, erases dark circles, brightens and hydrates the delicate eye area. The special elderflower complex and caffeine also helps to de-puff and soothe.
No one understands the power of a beautiful pout quite like Bobbi Brown. Possibly one of the most luxe lipsticks of the season, this rich berry hue is interspersed with subtle yellow and blended with particles to create a unique metallic finish. Boosting moisture levels instantly, its long-lasting creamy consistency reduces the appearance of lip lines and relieves flaking, ensuring that you still look your best long after application.
Infused with groundbreaking probiotic technology, chia seed extract and a whole slew of nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid and algae extract, Estée Lauder’s latest launch provides the perfect coverage during the hotter months – breathable, buildable and able to boost your skin’s radiance for up to 12 hours. The inclusion of SPF 45 is the cherry on top.
