Enjoy new scents and lotions to keep your body and face ever gorgeous as the weather heats up

Bourjois Rouge Laque.
The brand’s first liquid lipstick with ultra-intense colours, it comes in eight different shades and lasts for up to 16 hours. After the matte finish and exquisite comfort that brought Rouge Velvet its planetary success, the satiny shine and intense colours of Rouge Laque celebrate the springtime with a new glow. Available at Wojooh, Lifestyle, Max and Boots.

Rimmel Provocalips.
Promising 16 hours of ‘lasting wild lips’ this is an exclusive two-step lip colour for a kiss-proof, trouble-proof pout. Step one: slick on wow-worthy colour. Step two: lock it in with incredible shine and moisture. Available in eight shades, the slim double-ended pack has one end opaquely coloured to match the shade inside; the other is white and covered in mischievous lips!

Jo Malone Star Magnolia.
A dual offering from master perfumer Anne Flipo, Star Magnolia comes as a limited edition cologne as well as the brand’s first hair mist. Notes include magnolia leaf and orange blossom with a kiss of lemon, ginger and shiso.
Armani Runway.
A limited edition from Giorgio Armani and make-up artist Linda Cantello offering the chance to get catwalk looks at home. Cantello has created an ethnic and sensual look across three products: the Runway Palette, Eye Tint liquid shadow, and the Ecstasy Lacquer lip gloss. The Runway Palette comes in two sections – one holding a bronzing powder and the other three shades of eye shadow which are complemented by the electric blue of the eye tint and rosy nude of the lip gloss.

Guerlain Terracotta.
A reimagined collection offering facial contouring compacts to suit fair to dark skin. There are also two new powders in ultra-matte and ultra-shine options, contained in a stunning gold and white container, and the Terracotta sunless tanning mist to create an even all-over colour without the fear of burning.

Herrera Confidential Gold Incense.
Created in collaboration with master perfumer Pierre-Constantin Guéros, Gold Incense offers a modern reinterpretation of frankincense; its ethereal and complex fragrance blends nuances of resins, sumptuous leaves and wood. The intense aroma of Boswellia Sacra Incense opens, giving way to a gloriously smoky and resinous heart. Atlas cedar wood and labdanum dull the edges while marigold and vanilla caviar notes close. A limited edition for Ramadan, the scent is on offer throughout June.

Clarins Multi-Active Yeux.
Combining a technology inspired by the latest scientific advances with the power of plants, this new offering smoothes fine lines, minimises signs of fatigue and brightens the eye area. It uses extracts of organic teasel as well as escin from horse chestnut and caffeine to produce an instant smoothing and depuffing effect.

Lifestyle Nyx Range.
Pocket-friendly brand Lifestyle has come up with a selection of new pieces to see you into the coming season, including the Full Throttle eye shadow palette which comes in shades of tawny browns and golds, perfect for that smoky-eye look, and the HD sparkling blush to bring out your sun-kissed style.

Tom Ford Private Blend Vert de Fleur.
The scent opens with emergent hyacinth and galbanum notes wrapped in a refined embrace of neroli, bergamot and basil. A velvet floralcy lies at the heart of the scent, which includes a luxurious blend of iris butter, jasmine sambac and rose balanced by orange flower. Woody notes include warm vetiver and patchouli against dark oakmoss and brilliant green, harmonising the composition for a seductive finish. Available at Tom Ford beauty counters and boutiques.

Clinique SPF30 Virtu-Oil Body Mist.
The newest lightweight sunscreen offers the same luxurious feel as a dry body oil with the dermatologist-tested sun protection you need against UVA/UVB radiation. It’s suitable for all skin types, non-photoallergenic, non-phototoxic, non-acnegenic, allergy tested, 100 per cent fragrance free and dermatologist-tested. Key ingredients include the chemical sunscreens homosalate and octisalate as well as avobenzone – an oil-soluble ingredient that absorbs the full spectrum of UVA rays that cause long-term sun damage to skin.
