Need to give your beauty kit or bedroom an update? We’ll take any excuse! Have a notepad at the ready, and add our favourite new beauty launches of February 2017 to your shopping list.
This has got to be one of the prettiest candles we’ve ever seen and smelt. Filled with notes of blackcurrant, bergamot, lychee, geranium and of course rose, this fruity floral mixture can elevate the mood in any room, and is just the thing to light this Valentine’s Day.
L’Oréal Paris True Match High-Light Illuminating Powder in Rose and Golden Glow
Give your cheeks, temples, Cupid’s bow and the bridge of your nose a believable glow with L’Oréal Paris’s finely milled illuminating powders. Try Golden Glow if you’re after a more natural finish, and Rose for a slightly-flushed effect.
Giorgio Armani Power Fabric
Who knew that a full coverage foundation could feel so lightweight on skin? The new Power Fabric is a dream to blend, contains SPF 25 protection, and comes in 14 shades to make it easier to find your perfect match.
Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant
With activated binchotan charcoal powder, malic acid, lactic acid and niacinamide in the mix (amongst many other ingredients), the new Daily Superfoliant deeply cleanses skin from dirt and pollution and protects it from free radical damage. Best of all, the powdered formula makes it an absolute dream to travel with.
La Prairie Line Interception Power Duo
Sick of a complicated skin care routine? La Prairie’s new Line Interception Power Duo is a clever two-in-one product that contains a day cream with SPF on one side, and a night cream on the other. Both formulas contain peptides to improve all areas of skin, including lines, elasticity and smoothness, and claims you’ll see results within 14 days.
Alpha-H Liquid Gold Luxe Resurfacing Body Cloths
So you know to use chemical exfoliants on your face for a brighter complexion, but what about your body? Following from the success of Alpha-H’s Liquid Gold range comes the Luxe Resurfacing Body Cloths, made with glycolic acid and chamomile, marine algae and aloe vera to remove dead skin cells and improve luminosity all over. Use the textured side to buff your skin, then follow with the smooth side to hydrate.
Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream
Loaded with niacinamide, glycerin and penta-peptide, Olay Eyes Ultimate Eye Cream can target wrinkles, puffy eyes and dark circles. Cleverly, it also contains colour correctors to match your skin tone, making it a top pick to wear during the day.
CHANEL Bleu de Chanel EDP Travel Spray
Can’t bear to part with your favourite fragrance when you’re travelling? Go for a travel-friendly spritz instead, which won’t shatter amongst your clothes and leave you with a dry-cleaning nightmare. CHANEL’s latest version also comes with two refills, so you’ll never run out again.
Hourglass Girl Lip Stylo in Lover, Creator and Warrior
Love wearing lipstick but hate how drying it can feel on your smackers? Hourglass’ new Girl Lip Stylos are a balm, liner and lipstick hybrid that feel light, hydrating and come in an array of light to dark shades. Our top picks? Lover, a punchy coral-red, Creator, a pared-back nude, and Warrior, a deep, dark and mysterious berry tone we seriously can’t stop applying.
Maybelline New York Colossal Big Shot Mascara in Blackest Black
Not only can the Colossal Big Shot Mascara boost the volume, length and curl of bare lashes from root to tip, but the added collagen can condition lashes, making them look longer and more luscious in the long run. And who wouldn't want that?
