Kat Von D Beauty have just launched two new vegan, high-performance products: Everlasting Blush and XO Vinyl Lip Cream both inspired by the gorgeous hues of blossoming flowers.

Everlasting Blush (£22) delivers an intense bloom of colour with a soft matte finish that won’t fade.   The silky, micro-milled powder formula ensures super high-pigment in one touch that blends effortlessly into the skin.  Housed in a unique rose bloom compact to nod to the six rose-inspired pigmented shades.

XO Vinyl Lip Cream (£19) delivers super high-pigment and a smooth, sexy shine with full coverage.  This unique formula lays down vinyl-like shine and bold colour for the perfect non-shimmery, non-gloss finish.  Available in 6 luscious shades.

Available from debenhams and selected Debenhams stores.


Brighten dull skin with Senna’s fantastic flaw fillers.  Totally Transforming Concealer (£18) has an ultra-cover formula that tightens, firms and reduces puffiness to banish tired eyes.  Crease-proof, cake-proof and long-wear, it becomes invisible on the skin as it covers blemishes, discoloration, redness and leaves a smooth, silky finish.  Available in four shades.

HD Hydra Cover Concealer (£28) has HD Light Reflecting pigments that help brighten and blur imperfections including under eye circles, redness and pigmentation.   The creamy, light-weight anti-aging concealer corrects imperfections while hydrating skin and reducing under eye puffiness.  The palette has three shades to allow you to customise coverage for your client.  Available in light, medium and dark colour combinations.

Both available from sennamakeup.


Medik8 have just launched Mutiny (£19) a squalene-based alternative to lip balm that takes a stand against occlusive petrolatum-based lip balms.  Petroleum-based balms can block moisture loss short term, without helping to repair the natural lip barrier.  Mutiny instantly melts to replenish lips with essential nourishment for long-term moisturisation leaving lips visibly soft, supple and protected.  Available from medik8.


CODE Beautiful is a British customer-first cosmetic line that champions individuality and strives to enhance every look.  LLE: Lid Lift Enhance (£22) is their antidote to heavy, tired eyes.  A lid concealer, primer and natural eyeshadow in one, this multifunctional superstar works to lift and brighten, opening your client’s eyes with a radiant finish.  It actively improves skin condition immediately and over-time with a formulation that promotes cell renewal, improves skin elasticity and protects against the signs of ageing.  Vegan and cruelty-free.  Available in light and deep shades from code-beautiful.


Leighton Denny Expert Nails can help you make a fresh nail colour statement with their New Year Nudes nail polishes (£12 retail / £6 trade).  They have a wide selection of beige, neutral tones to suit all skin tones, whether you prefer a light, glossy finish or a shimmery nude.  Keep nails looking sophisticated with stripped back beauty to reflect the new decade.  Available from leightondennyexpertnails and Marks and Spencer.


R&R Luxury is a plant-powered beauty brand founded on the restorative powers of Shea.  Other African superplants are also incorporated to create clean, sophisticated and effective products.  100% of the raw materials used in R&R products are sourced in Ghana, where the Shea tree has been growing for thousands of years.  Product manufacturing is also done in Ghana, ensuring the local population benefits from the supply chain.

Hero products include Liquid Black Soap (£12) formulated with shea butter, coconut oil and essential oils.  This deeply cleanses the face and body without stripping away any moisture.  Great for removing makeup and body paint.  100% natural and vegan.  Also available in a bar (£6).

Baobab Oil (£20) extracted from ‘The Tree of Life’ pure baobab oil is ultra-moisturising and rich in anti-oxidants with natural protective properties.  The vegan fast-absorbing oil with its silky texture leaves skin glowing.  It can also be used on the hair.

Both available from randrluxury.
