Whether you’re treating yourself with a ‘Christmas in July’ pressie or just need to top up your beauty kit, here are the best new skin care, makeup, body, fragrance and hair products to hit shelves this month.
Goldfield & Banks Velvet Splendour
Spicy and oriental in nature, Goldfield & Banks’ newest spritz is an ode to one of Australia’s most iconic flowers - the golden wattle. “The origin of the [wattle] tree and the arid conditions that surround the tree inspired me to create a fragrance featuring mimosa in all its splendour; [think] warm, sunny and velvety,” explained founder Dimitri Weber. Discover notes such as mandarin, mimosa absolute, orange blossom absolute, jasmine, sandalwood, patchouli and leather in this totally addictive scent.
M.A.C Prep+ Prime FIX+
From prepping and hydrating skin to setting makeup, M.A.C FIX+ is a must-have in any beauty buff’s kit. And it looks like there’s a new reason to love them this month. For a limited time only, five scents will be released - pick from juicy Watermelon or Pineapple, refreshing Cucumber or White Tea, and invigorating Peony. Or if you’re feeling generous, collect all five (they’re only 30mLs!).
SkinCeuticals Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight
It’s no secret that glycolic acid is one of our favourite chemical exfoliants because it effectively removes dead skin cells for all skin types to reveal a glowing complexion. So, it was a no-brainer to put the SkinCeuticals Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight to the test this month, and it certainly hasn’t disappointed us. “It targets dull skin and, with continued use, results in improved texture, tone, and provides a quantifiable glow with minimal skin irritation,” says Becky Watkins, Associate Vice President of SkinCeuticals Global Education.
Redken Color Extend Graydiant Shampoo
When it comes to eliminating brassiness in your hair, you can’t go past something like a purple shampoo, such as Redken Color Extend Graydiant Shampoo. It’s formulated with rich purple pigments that can knock out any tones of orange (yep, we’ve seen a noticeable difference in just one wash!), and it even contains amino acids to strengthen hair, making it perfect for those with bleached platinum, grey or blonde locks.
Burberry Kisses Lip Lacquer
Glossy, opaque and, most importantly, long-lasting, the new Burberry Kisses Lip Lacquers are what we’re swiping on our smackers this month. What sets these apart from others in the market is its hyaluronic-rich formula that feels smooth and slippery like a gloss (minus the sticky sensation), yet they’re packed with pigment so they look just like a velvety high-impact lipstick.
Givenchy Ombre Interdite Cream Eyeshadow
Anyone with oily eyelids will understand the frustration that comes with wearing powder eyeshadow as it can crease in just a few hours. The Givenchy Ombre Interdite Cream Eyeshadows aim to solve that problem. In fact, the brand promises that the balm-like formula will stay put for up to 24 hours. Now that’s seriously impressive.
Halcyon House X Lumira Candle
With notes like pink pepper, cardamom, cypress, jasmine, vanilla and tonka bean, the Halcyon X Lumira Candle has made our cold wintery nights a little more pleasant this month. The overall vibe is summery and cool without smelling too fruity or tropical; think luxurious beach house by the water, with a spritzer in hand.
The Daily Clean Face Daily Men's Cleanser
A men’s beauty brand that boasts an Australian-made, cruelty-free *and* 100 per cent vegan ingredient list? We never thought we’d see the day. One of their hero products, the Clean Face Daily Men's Cleanser, contains local ingredients such as wheatgrass, parsley seed, lemon tea tree and petitgrain to protect skin, and is packaged up in a slick pump that he won’t want to store away in his bathroom cupboard. And we guarantee you’ll want to borrow it, too.
Rubi Powder Brush
At $9.99, we think this powder brush is one of the best in its price range. Expect extremely fluffy and soft bristles that capture just the right amount of product in a single sweep, yet are resilient enough to be washed over and over again.
Sachajuan Dry Shampoo Mousse
Who knew that dry shampoo application could be so fun? Besides being able to soak up excess oils in your roots, this Dry Shampoo Mousse won’t leave any annoying residue on your shoulders, and a bottle can last for yonks.
Sportsgirl Exfoliating Body Scrub Mango
Besides smelling extremely delicious and being really good at exfoliating skin, the Sportsgirl Mango Body Scrub also contains mango butter, avocado oil and coconut oil to nourish (yep, say buh-bye to scaly skin this winter!).
