W7 Cosmetics have recently launched their slimmest ever black eyeliner, the Skinny Mini Micro Eyeliner (£4.95) – specially designed to reach the trickiest areas of the eye for the most perfectly defined look possible.  With a 1.7mm lead, the ultra-fine precision of a sharpened pencil, and a super soft and blendable formula, you can use the Skinny Mini for finer lines, along the lashes and towards the inner corner of the eye.  A jet black finish that lasts thanks to Skinny Mini’s waterproof, gel-like formula.  Available from w7cosmetics.


Emulsion have launched a Micellar Water (£14).  It can be used as a facial wash, makeup remover and moisturiser all in one, without drying the skin.  Spritz straight onto the face and remove with a cotton pad or apply using a cotton pad.  The unfragranced formula soothes and calms sensitive skin while aloe juice particles penetrate and rid pores of dirt and grime, gently cleansing and toning in one swoop.  Available now from emulsioncosmetics and launching soon at leading online etailers.


We all know how important it is to wear an SPF and, according to experts, a thin layer of high factor SPF is more important than an eye cream if you had to choose.  The around the eyes is the thinnest on the face and prone to ageing, so daily use of SPF is key.  Epionce Daily Shield Tinted SPF 50 (£45) is a broad spectrum protection that evens out skin tone while imparting a natural-looking healthy glow.  Perfect for all skin types, even sensitive skin, the very water resistant formula is enhanced with botanical ingredients and antioxidant benefits.  Providing sheer protection with just the right amount of colour to let skin look bare but radiant.  Available in one shade that blends flawlessly, making it idea for all skin types and tones.  Available from epionce.


Senna are offering a free brush with any eyeshadow purchase.  The Matte Eye Shadow (£13.50) is a richly pigmented opaque matte shadow with a butter smooth texture and super pigmentation.  Available in five shades, the velvety soft powder formula glides onto eyes evenly and gives an opaque colour that blends and layers beautifully.  Metallic Eye Shadow (£13.50) in four shades, are super dazzling metallic pressed powders that will make eyes gleam with multi-dimensional, saturated colour.  The creamy feeling formula glides on smoothly and blends easily.  It can be layered for sheer flash or painted on to lids and to colour the lower eye line.  Can also be dabbed on over lipstick to amp up your client’s pout.  Available from sennacosmetics.


Swiss pharma brand MGC Derma have launched a new skin care collection, with Aqoil at the centre of the formulation.  This is a propriety blend, incorporating CBD, and allowing oil and water to mix and hydrate the skin.  There are three ranges in the collection; Ageless, eight products formulated to tackle wrinkles; Everyday, five skincare essentials, including a mask and a scrub; Revive, dermatological products that are anti-inflammatory, phytocannabinoid-based treatments, with measurable improvement after using for 30 days.  Prices range from £40 to £85 and will be available exclusively from Harvey Nichols and harveynichols.
