If you’re already a fan of Perfect Peach Matte Foundation, and you’re interested in exploring a trending dewy finish this season, then we’re about to make your day. Brightening, hydrating and longwearing, with buildable coverage, this fresh-feeling foundation creates a cooling sensation and sets to a flawless satin finish. The luscious formula is infused with watermelon and cucumber, which is also its scent mojo—it smells a little like a watermelon Chupa Chups. In a word, amazing.
Inspired by the vibrant colours of berries, this high-glam, berry-scented (obviously) palette is cleverly curated. The slim-line seven-pan offering has a mix of creamy mattes, silky satins and dazzling metallics that are subtle enough to be your go-to for day looks, but they can easily be transformed into a dramatic evening statements, too. The matte transition colours are universally flattering, while the creamy shimmers and glitters in soft pinks, plums and blue are pigment-packed, even when applied with a brush.
Swipe on cheekbones, eyes, collarbones—wherever you want a little more ethereal glow. These versatile, shimmer accented sticks blend easily for soft highlight or build for a strobe-like effect, especially when layered with the shimmer half of Tutti Frutti Fruit Cocktail Blush Duo. There are two pink-based shades, th e paler Pink Lemonade and the deeper Strawberry Sparkle, which gives darker skin tones a gorgeous glow. Apply directly to skin or press in with your fingers or a brush to avoid disturbing your makeup base.
Bee Shapiro’s fragrance house has been committed to sustainability from the start, and this perfume is another innovation in clean beauty. It’s a “hydraparfum” version of the brand’s bestselling Myth, an alcohol-free gel scent with pure fragrance oil droplets suspended in a moisturising hyaluronic acid and water base. The hydrating formula boosts fragrance longevity and is refreshing on the skin, as opposed to alcohol-based fragrances which are drying. It’s a lighter variation on the captivating musky warmth of Myth, giving more prominence to the top notes of jasmine petals and tiger orchid. The formula is something to look at too, and each bottle is individually hand-filled with the gel, so they look unique.
Inspired by the bestselling Sheer Glow, this palette is all about the new nude, whatever your skin tone. With 12 shades formulated with the patented NARS’ Pigment Powder Suspension technology, it’s everything you need to line, shade, highlight and define your eyes and brows. There are rich mattes, lustrous shimmers and sexy metallics and the transitional shades you’ll use the most are in bigger pans (smart). This has the makings of a holy grail palette, so buy it in multiples because this stunner is limited-edition.
The follow-up to Summer Fridays’ hugely successful Jet Lag Mask, the Overtime Mask has enjoyed similar adoration in the US. All of which made us really excited for this one. Whereas the first mask is all about hydration, this vitamin-packed (A, K and C) new addition offers exfoliating, clarifying and decongesting benefits, making it the perfect Friday night masking partner to Jet Lag. To make the most of it, the Summer Fridays team recommend massaging the mask in circular motions for a minute, then leave for 10 minutes. Wash off with warm water and pat dry. Chemical exfoliants may be in vogue, but there’s something very satisfying about a physical scrub to slough away dead skin cells and leave skin feeling glowy and renewed. This one is powered by gentle pumpkin and apricot fruit enzymes and we’re certain it will be on heavy rotation in your beauty regime.
Another limited-edition release we recommend buying in bulk: Our no.1 bestselling lip balm, Lip De-Luscious Glide With SPF 15 is now available in a fetching and fashionable coral shade (it’s Pantone approved). The nourishing formula is a blend of antioxidant-rich shea butter, moisturising vitamin E, plumping hyaluronic acid and botanical oils, and it delivers just enough colour to enliven lips, but not so much that you need a mirror to apply it. On-the-go swiping perfection.
The Kurkdjian atelier set itself the intriguing task of composing two different perfumes using the same 49 elements: juniper berries, nutmeg, coriander, musks, and vanilla among them. The result is the unisex Gender Fluidity duo, Silver and Gold. The former balances spicy notes against crisp fruit to create a charming scent. The latter blends musks with floral notes and a base of vanilla—it feels sweet, light and undoubtedly romantic. The duo sets a new standard in fragrances. They are two captivating scents to be shared between two individuals. It’s sure to become a popular choice for brides and grooms. This kind of scent is for true love only.
