New from Clé de Peau Beauty is a reformulation of The Luminizing Face Enhancer (£79).  Now reformulated with Precious Opal Powder which projects prismatic light and gives a soft radiance.  The new formulation also has a smoother texture, with a silky-soft feel when swept onto the cheekbones and temples.  Five new shades join ever-favourite, #17 Celestial Sparks. Lighter colours designed to add luminosity to fair skin, while the deeper shades suit richer skin tones – or can be used to define and bronze.  This luxurious new formulation also incorporates premium skincare ingredients, enhancing a luminous finish that lasts for 12 hours.  Available now from harrods.


Ciaté London have partnered with fashion icon Iris Apfel and created a limited edition cosmetics range.  The eight-piece capsule collection is made up of bright, bold, confident-boosting lipstick, eyeshadows, nail stickers, and beauty accessories.  Creamy Gloss Lipstick (£18) in Exuberant (orange red), Original (nude pink) and Witty (hot pink); The Eyeshadow Palettes (£19) in More is More, Less is a Bore (everyday wearable bronzes with a bold purple liner) and Accidental Icon (wearable pinks with a statement aqua pop); The Cheat Sheets Nail Wraps (£13); a handheld mirror (£18) and a collectable Makeup Bag (£13).  All available now from ciatelondon.


Give your skin a beauty boost as luxury vegan healthy ageing brand MONAT introduces its first ever makeup product – BB Cream SPF30 (£44).  The formula is designed to be breathable, blendable and beautiful on application.  The all-in-one BB formula offers a buildable lightweight finish and is designed to hydrate, protect, and give 12-hour skin-enhancing radiant coverage as well as 24-hour hydration. Designed to be used daily – especially before sun exposure.   The formulation includes zinc oxide, rapeseed oil, rice bran extract, vitamin E, snow mushroom and mineral pigments.  Available in nine shades from monat.


Oiyari skincare’s name is derived from the Japanese word, ‘Omoiyari’ which means to care or to be compassionate toward other people’s needs and it’s this guiding principle that informs everything they do.  This philosophy of caring means that the products are 100% vegan, 100 % cruelty-free and made with 100% natural ingredients.

Using high concentrations of seaweed algae, liquid oxygen, antioxidants, peptides, natural preservatives and hyaluronic acid, Oiyari skincare rejuvenates, restores and revives, and is gentle enough for daily use.

One of Oiyari’s ultimate bestsellers is Skin Miracle Night Cream (£65). More of a luxurious treatment than a simple cream, the formula is infused with rich antioxidant ingredients such as marine peptides and plankton extracts.  Like Botox in a bottle, the unique formula provides skin with DNA-repairing enzymes, so you can wake up feeling refreshed with a smoother, firmer and more lifted complexion.

Purifying Cleanser with Algae & Spirulina (£36) has been formulated to remove impurities and detoxify the skin. This product also helps stimulate microcirculation leaving your face looking radiant, clean and rejuvenated. The cleanser is also PH balanced to suit all skin types and is 100% soap and sulphate free.  Both available now from oiyari.


New from ByErim are Luxury Shampoo and Conditioner (£25 each).  Packed with the highest quality, 100% naturally derived, vegan & cruelty free ingredients, both products deeply nourish and stimulate growth to promote optimum scalp and hair health.  Free from all nasties including silicones, sulphates and parabens, these are designed for use by the whole family (including children and beards!)

The Luxury Shampoo gently cleanses, nourishes and moisturises whilst stimulating growth and preventing hair loss with a sophisticated formula containing caffeine, argania spinosa kernel oil, emblica officinalis fruit extract, Japanese mint, betaine and lactic acid.

The Luxury Conditioner replenishes hair with a weightless creamy conditioner packed with skin loving ingredients including castor oil, caffeine, pogostemon cablin leaf oil and tocopherol.  Carefully sourced using the highest quality materials with functionality, the sleek packaging is 100% recyclable and FDA approved. With an easy-to-use airtight pump, there is no wastage ensuring you get the most out of every bottle. Featuring a matte black design, the bottle can also be up cycled after use.  Available exclusively from byerim.


Unleash your creativity and bring on the bling with Mylee’s dazzling Be Jewelled Nail Art Kit (£32).  This gorgeous kit includes all of the essentials for customising your look, including a thin liner brush, dotting tool, palette for mixing gel colours, clear 5-in-1 Builder Gel, gold leaf, as well as an assorted selection of gems and pearls. These bits and bobs are a must-have for beauty addicts who love a bit of glam.

You can also add extra shimmer to your mani with Mylee’s All That Glitters Nail Art Kits (£30 each).  With four kits to choose from, will you go for bright and sweet using Sugarplum Fairy; channel your inner frozen vibes with the cool and iridescent Fairy Dust; opt for the classics using Winter Solstice, or embrace deep and spicy Christmas shades with Gingerbread House? Decisions, decisions…  All available now from mylee.


Rose & Caramel’s new Gelossy Gel Polish (£9.59 each) is one of the first ingredient-conscious brands to launch a heavily reduced nail gel formula. By containing just five ingredients and eliminating all harmful chemicals associated with nail polish, Gelossy is kinder to nails, but without sacrificing a lustrous, salon-worthy finish. It is also non-toxic and vegan.

UV or LED light curable in 60 seconds, there are 32 vibrant long-lasting, fast-drying, chip-resistant shades. Choose from a shimmering sliver metallic and moodier tones of glossy black, rich dark chocolate and warm deep plum to absolute classic shades of red and blush that never go out of style.  For the perfect at-home manicure, apply Gelossy Base Coat (£9.99), two coats of your chosen Gelossy colour – the luxuriously thick bristle brush gives a full coverage with minimal product – and finally, finish with the high-shine Gelossy No Wipe Top Coat (£9.99).  All available now from roseandcaramel.


The Bellissima Steam Elixir (£149.99) is the ideal styling tool for creating silky smooth, frizz-free straight hair, soft waves or effortless curls without damaging the hair.  Designed to help protect the hair from hot plates, preventing thermal shock and breakage of the hair fibre, the steam irons out the hair fibres and helps preserve the optimum level of moisture within the hair – leaving it looking and feeling silky, soft, and shiny.  The Steam Elixir’s ability to help balance the hair’s moisture, makes it less likely for the hair to absorb humidity and create puffiness or fizziness. Additionally, the Ceramic Argan coating of the plates helps protect the hair from the heat and acts as an additional beauty treatment, adding gloss and softness.  Available now from feelunique.
