Beauty lovers… start your engines and say hello to RuPaul‘s exclusive UK beauty collection. Serving super pigmented colours, long lasting formulas and the ultimate androgynous scent, it’s time to pump up your charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent.  After decades of makeup experience and equally as much time perfecting “The Look,” Mama Ru has assembled a collection of backstage beauty secrets that everyone should know, including:

Eleganza Extravaganza Liquid Eyeshadow Trio (£10) insanely lustrous liquid eyeshadows for a high-wattage, sparkling finish;  Shantay You Stay Eye Palette (£14) basic should not be in your vocab! This baby has all the must-have shades you need to sculpt, define, crease-cut and highlight eyes into catwalk-ready perfection; Sashay Away Eye Palette (£14) a full-wattage mega-palette of 18 shimmer shades to add vibrant colour, contour and sparkle for drag-tastic definition; Supermodel Lip Duo (£8) the perfect liquid lipstick and liner for a lip sync worthy pout. Nude, sexy and glamourous – what’s not to love? A Little Bit Of Luscious Lipstick Trio (£10) a trio of nude lipsticks; The Final Four Highlighter Palette (£12) a quad of face-sculpting shades. With four eye-catching, illuminating pressed powders to highlight those all-important areas.  There are also two Look Books (£20 each), a mix of 6 eyeshadows, highlighter, blush, matte lip and liquid liner, plus Give Your All – Star Buy (£30) a bumper collection of beauty must-haves.  The RuPaul Collection is available exclusively in store and online from superdrug.


New launches from Victoria Beckham Beauty have landed.  Satin Kajal Jewel Liner (£22) are long wear precision glimmer eyeliners which deliver high-octane glimmer with the precision and performance of a pencil. Turn up the glamour and put the spotlight on your eyes.  Highly pigmented and shimmering, the long-wearing, water-proof, fade-proof formula glides on easily, and once blended, unlocks added dimension for a high- shine pearlescent finish.

Derived from mineral based silica (not plastics) the ocean-friendly pearl does not bioaccumulate, meaning it is safe for the environment as well as your eyes.  They are dual-ended to include a smudger for easy application and come with an optional sharpener, engineered to maintain the integrity of your liner and create a precise point.  Available in three shades:   Night Flash – high contrast drama with silver glimmer and rich black colour; Gold Lamé – pure shine from a true gold pearl—no pigment added; and Sequin Green – a golden green that adds an extra spark to every eye colour.  Available now from victoriabeckhambeauty.


Studio10 Wake Up & Glow Lip & Cheek Tint (£24) is a 3-in-1 fusion treatment, a lipstick and cheek tint that instantly boosts the complexion and lips with a flush of buildable colour. Formulated for mature skin and enriched with a deeply hydrating hyaluronic acid balm running through its core, the tint intensively moisturises the complexion and soothes the delicate skin of the lips. Available in three shades, Peach, Tearose and Roseberry.  Available now from studio10beauty.


Ciaté’s latest Hannah Martin collab is the Hannah Martin x Ciaté London 24-Piece Professional Brush Collection (£169), a limited-edition vegan brush set.  The 24-piece kit contains every eye, lip, and complexion brush needed for flawless application, buffing, and blending.
