New favourites from brands including Gucci Beauty and Drunk Elephant.
Even with masks still on, this month has us trying to remember how to flick the perfect cat eye, and blend foundation seamlessly into our neck and jawline. It’s like stepping out into the world again (a feeling we never thought we’d experience in this lifetime), but now that the world is getting back into the swing of (better) things, it means playtime with cosmetics and skincare can resume too. Ahead, our new favourite toys:
Fenty Beauty Slip Shine Sheer Shiny Lipstick
If you love one Fenty Beauty product, you’ll love them all. So the newest Slip Shine Sheer Shiny Lipstick is no exception to the law Rihanna has passed. For a tongue twister of a name, the product is fairly uncomplicated — 10 high-shine shades with a creamy and nourishing texture.
Clé de Peau Beauté The Brightening Collection
Mixing and matching works for fashion, but with skincare it’s recommended to stick to a range of products each one complements each other. If brightening what you’re looking for, then it’s good news for dull skin and sun-damage with the launch of Clé de Peau’s The Brightening Collection. It’s made up of the Concentrated Brightening Serum, Concentrated Brightening Eye Serum, and Intensive Brightening Masks — formulated with the Illuminating Complex EX that contains golden silk and pearl elements.
Gucci Beauty’s New Face and Eye Makeup
Three new products from Gucci Beauty have just launched: the smoothing and mattifying pressed face powder Poudre De Beauté Mat Naturel, Crayon Définition Sourcils brow pencil, and multi-use gel gloss for the eyes, lips and cheeks, Éclat De Beauté Effet Lumière. We love how the Crayon Définition Sourcils comes with a sharpener that actually works for brow pencils, along with a nifty little stick to clean it up, but if there’s one thing from this collection to repurchase, it’s the Poudre De Beauté Mat Naturel — perfect for lightweight coverage.
Sulwhasoo First Care Activating Serum
The gift that keeps on giving: here’s the fifth-generation of Sulwhasoo’s First Care Activating Serum. In this formula there’s the upgraded JAUM Activator; a “golden ratio” formula that helps activate the skin’s youthful energy. The brand claims that one bottle can help you achieve a 146% Skin Youth Index.
Drunk Elephant E-Rase Milki Micellar Water
Drunk Elephant‘s take on makeup remover is a soothing combination of micellar water and a milky formulation of ceramics, plant oils and Vitamin E. Like all other Drunk Elephant products, this one is extremely kind to the skin and is free from any aggravators, opting instead for ingredients like plant oils of baobab, mongongo, wild melon seed, ximenia seed, passionfruit, and sweet almond.
