Hot off this week’s news – Fruity, fun, and a little bit flirty: Too Faced’s new Tutti Frutti collection will have you dreaming of deliciousness! There are 53 brand new products, and consider us truly excited. First up are the two eyeshadow palettes (£30) in Sparkling Pineapple and Razzle Dazzle Berry, each with their own unique scent and seven luxurious colours for your lids. In case that’s not enough drama for you, the Twinkle Twinkle Liquid Glitter Eyeshadow (£18) comes in eight fruity shades – our favourite has to be the delectable Strawberries & Champagne – and coats eyes in multidimensional glitz and glamour. For lightweight candy shine on your lips, look no further than the Juicy Fruits Comfort Lip Glaze (£16), which is available in 12 mesmerising shades, from nudes to the sparkling turquoise of Blue You Away. The Fruit Cocktails Strobing Blush Duo (£25) is available in four variations, each containing the perfect duo of blush and highlighting shade which can be used separately or swirled together for a lit-from-within flush. Another duo, the Pineapple Paradise Strobing Bronzer (£25) offers two silky, buildable shades that allow you to create the perfect level of glow for any occasion. For even more glow, try out the Frosted Fruits Highlighter Sticks (£25), which come in Pink Lemonade and Strawberry Sparkle, and offer a buildable cream-to-powder formula with no pulling involved. If liquid highlight is more your style, the Fresh Squeezed Highlighter Drops (£25) are reminiscent of this year’s classic styles, and come in two unusual shades: Pina Colada and Sparkling Pink Grapefruit, with the scents to match. Mix in with your favourite moisturiser for an all over glow or use alone for highlight that can be seen from space, these drops can be used on your eyes, lips, and face. If you need a dewy base layer to go under all of that, reach for the Dew You Full-Coverage Fresh Glow Foundation (£27), which hydrates and brightens your complexion whilst creating a flawless, satin finish. The 20 shades are non-comedogenic, and match the existing shades in the Born This Way foundation. To ensure your look stays fresh all day, the Dew You Fresh Glow Setting Spray (£25) works to lock down makeup with a gorgeous pearlescent finish, which boosts skin’s radiance, and can be used all over the body. And finally, what sort of fruity collection would be complete without a banana powder? The It’s Bananas Setting Powder (£25) ticks all the boxes, brightening skin whilst blurring imperfections and lines for the perfect soft-focus look. The entire line is available from the Too Faced Carnaby Street store.
We’ve been hearing all about the benefits of Australian Pink Clay, and skin saviour Emma Hardie has created her Purifying Pink Clay Detox Mask (£40) to detoxify and balance our skin. Pores are refined, skin is gently exfoliated, and impurities are washed away, whilst skin gets a dose of hydration – and it’s the most darling pastel pink. The naturally occurring AHAs help to exfoliate skin and stimulate cell renewal, while the P-Refinyl, as well as making pores appear smaller, also reinforces collagen structure – giving skin a smooth, refined appearance. As devotees of Emma Hardie will know, she loves moringa in skincare, and the moringa seed oil present in this mask provides antioxidant and environmental protection to skin thanks to its high levels of vitamins C and E. The mask is available from stockists nationwide and www.emmahardie.com.
Who’s already excited for Halloween? We certainly are, and the folks over at Barry M are doing all they can to keep us in the mood. Their new Glitter Rush Body Glitter (£4.99) comes in two head-turning shades: Fancy Dress, a kaleidoscopic, iridescent glitter, and Wild Child, a mystical scarlet. If it’s something chunkier you’re after, allow us to introduce the new Pick ‘n’ Glitz (£4.99) shades: the ethereal pearl of Lit; the serpentine green of Savage; the eye-catching Boo; and the impish sparkle of Hella. For an extra dose of drama this holiday season, try the Face Jewels (£4.99), which will allow you to create the perfect creepy-cute look in no time. Bring on the trick or treating! The range is available now in Superdrug stores nationwide.
Forever bringing backstage techniques to our faces, M.A.C are a staple in the beauty world for good reason. Their new Powder Kiss Lipstick (£17.50) is designed to mimic the effect of blotting lipstick to create an effortlessly hazy finish. The groundbreaking formula contains moisture-coated powder pigments that condition and hydrate lips whilst enveloping them in sensuous colour. Available in a range of colours from the casually nude Influentially It to the flushed fuchsia of Fall in Love, there’s bound to be a colour for everyone – we want them all! The lipsticks are available now at www.maccosmetics.co.uk, and will be available from the 4th October in all M.A.C locations.
Has there ever been a Jurlique launch that didn’t make your mouth water? The new limited edition Sweet Peony and Tangerine Hydrating Mist (£24) is no exception, and as well as smelling delectable, these two ingredients combine to improve skin’s moisture levels. With an infusion of natural antioxidants, skin remains protected, soothed, and balanced – and your mood uplifted as you’re enveloped in the sweet, vibrant scent. It can be used as a pick me up throughout the day, but what’s more, application can boost the effects of essences and serums. If you really can’t get enough of the scent, why not try the new Sweet Peony & Tangerine Hand Cream (£29), which promotes skin resilience and wellness by improving the skin’s protective barrier. Infused with a blend of lemon balm, rosemary, and sage extracts, the cream reduces the appearance of dryness and leaves skin feeling healthier. These two would make the perfect gift for someone in need of a little indulgence in their lives, and both are available now from Jurlique.
Where do you go for exceptional quality, long-lasting formulas, and a huge range of colours? Kryolan is always our top pick, and their new offerings embrace the multi-dimensional trend that is sweeping our social media. The Pure Pigments Metallic (£17.20) follow on from the success of their Pure Pigments, and offer an exceptional metallic finish, with intense colour that’s perfectly blendable. Layer over Kryolan’s Eye Shadow Primer to create an incredible metallic finish, or add the pigments to their Mixing Medium for a liquid metal effect. The Pure Metallic Pigments come in nine gorgeous shades, from deep blue to shimmering scarlet, and are the perfect accompaniment for this season. If you’re after something more iridescent, the Holographic Pigments (£16.50) change shade according to the light and movement, and are highly adhesive for long-lasting colour. They’re available in nine shades – our favourite is the deep, forest green that has an utterly magical shift. Both are available now from Kryolan.
To those who can read it, a flower arrangement says many things. The silky petals and captivating colours tell a story of love, devotion, and longing, and it is this spirit that Rouge Bunny Rouge have channelled into the gorgeous new shades of their Enchanting Blooms Tinted Luxe Balm (£24). Available in six serene colours – our favourites are the deep cherry Poised Peonies and the bright coral Amazing Anemones – the balms coat lips in delicate colour and nourishing ingredients. The powerful anti-ageing active complex they contain promises to restore lips to their original volume within four weeks of daily use – so you have an excuse to wear your beautiful new lip tint every day! With such a variety of colours, why not pick up one for every mood, and revel in the hydrating, plumping qualities while you go about your day. We more than like these tinted balms – it must be love!
The go-to name in modern, simple skincare, Malin+Goetz have released a new exfoliator designed specifically for oily skin but suitable for all. The AHA Treatment Solution (£36) is an all in one solution that blends a range of acids including glycolic (6%) and lactic (2%) to purify, brighten, and gently exfoliate skin. Skin is hydrated thanks to the inclusion of sodium hyaluronate and niacinamide, and pore size and excess oil is reduced. Gentle enough to be used every day, the solution improves overall texture of your skin, revealing smoother, glowing, healthy skin that is ready to take on the world. Available nationwide from the 2nd October.
