Urban Decay has announced the launch of its Naked Illuminated Trio (£29). The limited edition set contains three new shades of the brand’s Shimmering Powder for Face and Body: Pyrite (gold champagne), Oasis (marbled frosted taupe) and Twilight (iridescent pink).

To celebrate its 25th anniversary, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics has announced the launch of its City Collection. The collection features a trio of exclusive eye and cheek palettes, each centred around Bobbi’s favourite cities of London, Paris and New York. Each palette contains four eyeshadows and a blush inspired by the spirit of each place. The collection also contains limited edition shades of the Long Wear Gel Eyeliner (£19) and Luxe Lip Color (£25), and will be available exclusively at Harrods from September.
Not only has Bobbi Brown released a whole new collection, but they have also announced the launch of the new Retouching Wand (£26.50) and Retouching Powders (£27). The Retouching Wand is a cover-up and foundation hybrid that erases imperfections, neutralises redness and evens out skin. The wand uses pigment technology to create the weightless liquid formula that blends into the skin for undetectable coverage. Meanwhile the Retouching Powder has been given an updated look. They now come in five different shades to suit different skin tones: Peach, Pink, Rose, Yellow and White.
NARS has announced the launch of Velvet Lip Glide (£22), the new liquid lipstick which combines the fluidity and effortlessness of a gloss with the coverage and comfort of a lipstick. The new liquid lipstick is combined with NARS’ Oil Infusion Complex to give lips instant smoothness. Named after the iconic venues and new attitude that emerged from the sexual revolution of the ‘70s, Velvet Lip Glide will be available from 1st October nationwide, exclusive to NARS Boutiques and narscosmetics.com.

Available from 1st September, you can find it at Marks & Spencer.
Benefit Cosmetics has announced two new launches for September. The brand has introduced a brown shade of its much-loved Roller Lash Mascara (£19.50).
