Hot off this week’s news – Summer is upon us, as are the bright colour collections for summer. The new Dolce and Gabbana Italian Zest Make-up Collection is aptly named, with a host of vibrant and playful shades. Contents include limited edition shades of Miss Sicily Lipstick (£27 – in Gaetana and Angela, with permanent shades Antonia and Maria), Perfect Mono Eyeshadows (£27 – in Gold Sand and Copper to join permanent shade Bronze) and Nail Lacquer (£21 – in shades Mandarino, Anguria and Anice). The Passioneyes Mascara Waterproof in Nero 1 (£28) and limited edition Italian Zest Healthy Glow Stick (£30) in Shimmer and Bronze round off the collection. Available now from harrods.com.
Stila are going for glow in a big way for Summer 2018. Opting for liquid metallic and glitters, they’ve started with new duochrome shades of their hugely popular Glitter & Glow liquid eyeshadows (£23). Their Glitter & Glow Highlighter (£24) is the perfect pairing, a dazzling liquid highlighter in a sheer water-infused base – choose from classic Kitten, Monarch or Queen. For a more subtle sheen opt for the Heaven’s Hue Highlighter (£28) with its weightless texture and natural finish. Finally, the latest update to a classic – the brand’s signature is now more precise than ever. The Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner Micro Tip (£14.50) has an even finer brush and won’t smudge or run.
The Summer of Love Collection from Cosmetics à la Carte features cult favourite formulations in new, limited edition colours – think dusky rose, pinks and apricot. The Bare Blush Cream Blush (£30) comes in a satin finish, enriched with Vitamin E, in two new Summer of Love shades: Soft pink Romance and Apricot Crush. The Colour Rich Matte Liquid Lipstick (£26), infused with pro-collagen peptides for fuller looking lips over time, also has two new shades: pink Summer of Love and apricot Summer Fling.
Also new is the rose-gold Amour shade of their Shimmer Outliner (£28), a cream eyeshadow and eyeliner multiple, and three shades of Complexion Enhancer (£40) which uses ultrafine micro-pearls attract and diffuse light for a dewy effect. The Summer of Love Collection is now available in-store and from cosmeticsalacarte.com.
Glossy lips are set to be a summer staple with the new Barry M Gloss Me Up Kits (£6.99). After the success of their Matte Me Up lip paints, this new collection has everything you need for a glossy pout. The three kits pair a summery gloss shade with a matching liner – choose from pale pink, rose or coral. These fruity fun shades will be on sale from July 25th in Superdrug.
