New year, new loot

Just because the gifting season is over doesn't mean you can’t treat yourself with something new. Here are the latest and greatest in skin, hair, makeup and more.
Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Lift And Firm Sculpting Gel
Facial rollers have been known to tighten skin with regular use, which is why the newest buy from Elizabeth Arden has become a firm (ahem!) favourite for us in the office. Turn the top of the product “on” and gently squeeze the tube to release the formula, then “off” to stop the flow, and finally use the rotating head to distribute the product onto areas that need defining, such as your jawline, neck and under your cheekbones. Results are reportedly softer, smoother, healthier-looking and firmer skin.
shu uemura laque supreme
The shu uemura laque supreme lippies are more than just glosses: the super nourishing oil-in-water formula boasts intense colour pigments and is comfortable to wear. “My personal favourite from the range is the CR01 and RD05,” says Panda Peng, National Makeup Artist for shu uemura. “CR01 (left) to me is like a classy lady, the warm coral colour brightens the skin and boosts any mood. RD05 (right) is a sophisticated, elegant red but it still has that warmth not to push people away. The most important thing is it creates a natural contouring [for] juicy, kissable lips!”
Clinique CliniqueFIT Workout 24-Hour Mascara
Some gym days require just a bit of definition on your peepers, which is where the new Clinique CliniqueFIT Workout 24-Hour Mascara comes in handy. Not only can the nifty wand separate and curl each lash effortlessly, the dark formula is also smudge-proof and won’t flake, even when your eyes come into contact with cold water or sweat.
Benefit Cosmetics The POREfessional: Pearl Primer
The secret to prolonging the wear of your foundation is with a primer, and Benefit’s newest product from their The POREfessional range has got you covered. This all-over primer is formulated with tiny pearl-like particles that subtly illuminate skin, and we can’t get enough of its pore-erasing benefits.
Mavala Scientifique K+
Whether daily wear and tear is wreaking havoc on your nails or you’ve had a few too many rounds of Shellac (we’re guilty over here as well), then you may need to look into a nail strengthener to prevent brittleness and chipping. Mavala Scientifique K+ is similar to its best-selling predecessor, but it’s been updated and is formulated with special natural crystal resins to strengthen bare nails.
Dior Lip Glow
There are two kinds of lippie-wearers in this world: those that love to slick on something bold, daring and usually long-wearing, and those that just like a hint of colour. The incredibly popular Dior Lip Glow is the perfect solution for the latter, as they’re feather-light to wear, low commitment to apply (you can seriously do it without a mirror) and they now come in an array of pink and coral shades and dewy to matte finishes to suit everyone.
Nioxin Instant Fullness Dry Cleanser
Look no further if you’re looking for something that can refresh your scalp and boost fullness in hair in a single spritz. The Nioxin Instant Fullness Dry Cleanser features a special technology (Fusion Fibril™ technology, to be exact) which can absorb oils invisibly to give your roots a lift.
Beauty Boosters Complexion Perfection
Maintaining a balanced diet can be tricky at times, especially when you’re trying to eat the recommended serving of two portions of fish a week for your hit of omega-3. One way to up your intake of omega-3 (and 6 and 9) is with a daily supplement like Beauty Boosters Complexion Perfection, which are tasteless tablets that you can have with every meal.
Raww Macadamia Crush Bronzer
Obsessed with superfoods? Us too. Extend your healthy habits right through to your makeup application with Raww’s Macadamia Crush Bronzer, which is enriched with coconut oil to hydrate, Kakadu plum to firm up skin and macadamia oil to nourish.
Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel
Protect the delicate skin around your eyes with a daily eye cream, like Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel, which boasts incredibly moisturising ingredients like hyaluronic acid, cucumber extract and niacinamide. What we’re loving most about this product is how quickly it gets soaked up by thirsty skin, making it a top pick to wear during the day as it won’t interfere with any makeup applied afterwards, such as foundation.
If you want to get the most out of your eye cream, follow these five tips.
