FaceHalo have launched the ultimate Pro makeup remover pad that reduces waste including face wipes and cotton wool. Simply wet the pad and let the HaloTech strands, which are 100 times finer than human hair, remove even the most stubborn make-up. Each pad is dual-sided, reusable and can be machine washed up to 200 times. We are loving them in the Warpaint Mag office – large ones for bodypainters would be amazing (hint hint!). £18 for a pack of three, you can find them at beautybay and facehalo

Vegan friendly, the range is infused with tea tree oil, wheat protein, garlic bulb extract, biotin and lavender. Available from dltpodiatry.

To celebrate International Women’s Day 2019, Zoeva Cosmetics have created Pop Stitch (£9.50) a creamy bright fuschia lipstick with a nourishing and pigmented formula.

There’s a new innovation in curling your hair. Chopstick Styler have discovered that rectangular barrels work best and have released four new curling tools. The breaking of hydrogen bonds in the hair is what forms the curl; adding corners to this keeps the spiral in place. The Hero Styler (£24.99) has titanium plates and is particularly good for thicker, coarser hair types. The Long (£27.99), the Chunky and the Master (both £29.99) are ceramic. All models have a cool tip end, variable temperature control, 360º rotating cord and autoshut off. Available exclusively from argos.

Additionally there are three Oil Drops (£14.95) that can also be added; choose from energy, detox and defence. These can be used alone, in the foundation or added to moisturiser. Vegan friendly, cruelty- and paraben-free. Available from 3INA stores and 3ina.
