Birchbox has announced the launch of LOC (Love of Color), its first in-house make-up brand. Fully conceptualised and developed by Birchbox, LOC is designed to provide a shortcut to trends with bold, highly pigmented make-up products inspired by the most current colours. The LOC collection, launched this week, features two products in multiple colours.

Lancôme is introducing their latest lip addition Juicy Shaker, a biphasic colour infusion lip oil. The product combines adjustable intensity and vibrant sheer colour with satin shine, to offer a non-sticky texture that has the glossy finish and the lip care effects of an oil. A dispersant agent guarantees uniform pigment diffusion when the texture is shaken, for perfect colour distribution on application. Key ingredients include sweet almond oil, cranberry oil, omega 3 and 7 and musk rose oil. The Lancôme Juicy Shaker is available in 14 shades and will be available exclusively at Selfridges and Lacome.co.uk from 2 March, and nationwide from 16 March.
Future Forward is the latest collaboration project from MAC, working with four up-and-coming music artists – Dej Loaf, Halsey, Lion Babe and Tinashe.

The collection will be available from March.

The foundation is available in four shades launches this month, priced at £35.
