Enjoy new scents and lotions to keep your body and face ever gorgeous as the weather heats up
Clarins Mission Perfection Yeux.
An instant eye illuminator that targets persistent dark circles which are often a sign of lack of sleep, fatigue and stress. The under-eye has extremely fine skin which makes blood vessels even more visible. This fine, tinted emulsion applied with the built-in bevelled brush helps to correct dark circles thanks to the high Lumitech complex, a unique combination of illuminating pigments.
L’Occitane En Provence Almond Refining Concentrate.
The French beauty expert continues its love affair with almonds with the addition of pressed almond extract, a new patented active ingredient, at the heart of this bodycare product. Almond oil, pressed almond extract and caffeine are all included in the formula, giving the cream a silky texture, with a delicious scent, which sinks easily into the skin. Available at L’Occitane stores.
Clinique BIY Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops.
Transform any moisturiser into a BB, CC or fuller coverage foundation by simply adjusting the number of drops you mix in. The highly concentrated pure pigments are suspended in a super-lightweight, dual-phase formula. Once the two phases are combined by shaking thoroughly, the formula turns into a thin fluid formulation that can be precisely measured in drops, and mixed with a moisturiser to create customisable coverage with skin care benefits. Available at leading retailers.
Bobbi Brown Skin Glow Collection.
An edited selection of illuminating and hydrating formulas for cheeks, lips and skin. The Cheek Glow Palette includes the iconic Pot Rouge as well as new highlighters. The Extra Lip Tint comes in two new shades – Bare Popsicle and Bare Melon – and the Extra Illuminating Moisture Balm features light-reflective pearls that mimic the radiance of healthy, glowing skin, and lychee extract to energise on contact. Available at Bobbi Brown.
The Cosmetic Republic Root Concealer.
A temporary solution to touch up roots between salon visits and cover greys. Ammonia- and peroxide-free, it’s made of mineral pigments that make it skin and hair friendly and it’s also colourfast, so won’t come off on your clothes or in the rain. Plus, makers claim it gives hair a great shine. Available at www.thecosmeticrepublic.com
Molton Brown Limited Edition Gourmand Collections.
Inspired by the success of its Delicious Rhubarb & Rose Collection, the brand has launched two new, good-enough-to-eat options. Choose from Exquisite Vanilla & Violet Flower or Comice Pear & Wild Honey, which opens with crunchy green leaf accords refreshed by subtle hints of bergamot and layered with light petals of gardenia. The heart reveals a juicy pear embellished by jasmine and lily of the valley before evolving into a gourmand base of mouth-watering honey, caramel and biscuit. Available at leading retailers.
Bourjois Ultra Black Volume Reveal Mascara.
The French brand has come up with three new products aimed at giving precise application in the deepest black. The new mascara features a brush that volumises every single lash, a three-times magnifying mirror and a new intensely pigmented formula. Its companions are the Ultra Black Slim Felt-Tip eyeliner and Brow Duo Sculpt in three colours for perfect brows. Available at leading retailers.
Deep Euphoria Calvin Klein Eau de Toilette.
The newest addition to this portfolio has top notes of water lily, cassis leaves and crisp pear rendering the fragrance, at first, fresh and airy. Tempting floral hints of jasmine sambac and black magic rose make the heart more seductive and intoxicating, followed by a deep drydown of patchouli and musk. Available at leading retailers.
Dolce & Gabbana Miss Sicily.
Colour, shine and comfort come together in one lipstick with a blend of unique polymers, each Miss Sicily shade being named for a Sicilian woman. The lipsticks have a buildable colour through a combination of intense pigments, while an array of moisture-keepers prepares the lips and a combination of emollient oils softens the skin. Available in 16 shades over five colour families: soft nudes, statement pinks, confident purples, sunny corals and bold reds. Available at leading retailers.
H&M Conscious Heroes.
The Conscious Exclusive Collection is back in stores with favourites such as White Tea and Peppermint Hand Wash and new additions such as a revitalising scrub containing organic sugar, which buffs and polishes the skin, while shea butter and almond oil moisturise. Keep your eyes open for delicious mini tubes of lip balm in raspberry, blueberry, lemon, vanilla and ginger. Available at participating H&M stores.
