Beauty Crew Beauty Writer / January 10 2019
Popular opinion: There’s no better way to ring in the new year than to update your beauty kit. And we have a whole heap of shiny new beauty products to help you kick off 2019 with a bang (and a super pretty face).
Check out some of the best new beauty products you need to look out for this month.
CHANEL Baume Essential Multi-Use Glow Stick
Part of CHANEL’s new summer collection, the Baume Essential Multi-Use Glow Stick is your one-way ticket to the dewy, healthy-looking skin of your dreams. It’s a true all-rounder in our books - you can apply it alone or over makeup to sculpt and highlight your complexion for a fresh, natural-looking glow.
“I’m absolutely in *love* with this dreamy little multitasker! My boyfriend got CHANEL’s Baume Essential Multi-Use Glow Stick for me for Christmas (yep, nailed it), and I’ve seriously not stopped using it since. It’s super easy to use (with or without makeup) and is hands-down the easiest way to fool everyone into thinking you actually drink enough water. I love to swipe it along my cheekbones and under my brows for a luminous glow when I want a pared-back look/can’t be stuffed with makeup. It gives my complexion the most gorgeous radiance and has earned a permanent place in my kit.” – Erin Docherty, Beauty Writer
Innisfree Toy Story Jeju Life Perfumed Hand Cream
Guys, Innisfree has teamed up with Toy Story to release a range of cute-as-heck hand creams, and you’re going to want them all. Not only is the packaging the greatest thing ever, but the formula is everything you want in a hand cream. The Jeju Life Perfumed Hand Cream delivers a much-needed hit of hydration to dry hands, without that sticky, greasy feeling. Plus, the scent is absolutely divine and will have you feeling like you’re chilling out on Jeju Island (let’s be honest, we all need this in our lives right now).
KORA Organics Noni Glow Sleeping Mask
Miranda Kerr put noni extract on the beauty map and her KORA Organics Noni Glow Sleeping Mask is the latest formula to hero the skin-rejuvenating ingredient. Besides organic noni extract, this mask is also packed with a soothing blend of unique certified organic ingredients such as silver ear mushroom, coconut milk, caviar lime and Kakadu plum extract, and will have you waking up with soft, hydrated and glowing skin. Suitable for all skin types, it’s also fast-absorbing meaning it won’t create a big ol’ mess on your pillow!
Mecca Max Eyephoria Palette in Purple Haze
We’re a sucker for pretty palettes, and this new release from Mecca Max is no exception. Featuring 10 gorgeous matte and shimmer hues (yep, purple is still trending and we’re not even mad about it), this pocket-sized palette is perfect for on-the-go touch-ups/all of the time. The colours are super easy to wear and offer endless combinations in one.
L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Glycolic Pads
L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Glycolic Pads are the perfect addition to any anti-ageing skin care routine, helping to prevent wrinkles and tone the skin. These ready-to-use glycolic acid-soaked pads pack a real punch when it comes to exfoliation, working to remove dead skin cells for a smoother and more radiant complexion.
MAC Cosmetics Versicolour Varnish in Varnishly Red
According to Pinterest’s 2019 beauty trend predictions, glossy lips are back in a big way. And there’s no better way to get on board the trend than by nabbing yourself the new MAC Versicolour Varnish in Varnishly Red. This delightful gloss and stain combo will not only enhance your smackers, but it’s super comfortable and surprisingly long-lasting.
Ella Baché Suncover Great SPF50 Foundation
Ella Baché Suncover Great SPF50 Foundation contains light-diffusing pigments to give the skin a radiant and luminous glow, while offering SPF 50 protection. The lightweight formula offers a sheer coverage, but can easily be built up to tackle niggling skin concerns such as redness, pigmentation and dark under-eyes, all while still looking totally natural. It’s packed with a heap of skin-loving ingredients including jojoba and green tea to help combat free radical damage and prevent the signs of ageing.
Too Faced Fruit Cocktail Blush Duo in StrobeBerry
It’s impossible not to fall in love with this playful and uber pretty Too Faced Fruit Cocktail Blush Duo in StrobeBerry. It features both a highlighter and a blush, which can be blended together for a fresh, glowing look, or layered for a bold, bright cheek. It’s definitely our favourite way to apply blush this season!
Bondi Sands Aloe Vera After Sun SPF 30
This unique Bondi Sands after-sun spray is about to become your new summer must-have. It contains SPF 30 sun protection to help prevent sunburn and it also works to soothe and hydrate skin with the help of cooling aloe vera. “The thing I love most about this sunscreen is how quickly it absorbs and how it coats my skin with a smooth, velvety feeling. It is kind of the polar opposite of how it feels after applying most sunscreens, and in a way, it made me feel like I needed to reapply more often (which is certainly not a bad thing!).” – Carli Alman, Editor
