Want to know what’s new in the beauty space? You’ve certainly come to the right place. Here are the best new launches that are going to hit counters in April.
CHANEL Les Exclusifs Discovery Coffret
It doesn’t get more luxurious than this. Inside this fragrance set, discover fifteen of the best CHANEL spritzes (including classic floral Gardenia, powdery 1932 and aromatic Jersey, to name a few) in miniature-sized bottles that look just as impressive sitting on a makeup table as they smell on your pulse points. Perfect for the fragrance aficionado, and a real collector’s must-have.
Revlon Brow Crayon
Hate using brow powders? Then perhaps a crayon is your best bet. Revlon’s new Brow Crayons have a wax to powder formula that can build depth in your arches, add definition and tame strays all day long, all while building up to a natural looking finish. We’re hooked.
philosophy brighten my day skin perfecting essence
Aimed to target dark spots, fine lines and enlarged pores, philosophy’s new essence feels just like a serum, and is packed with niacinamide for skin renewal, salicylic acid to refine skin’s surface and daisy flower extract to lighten hyperpigmentation.
TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Pre Wash Conditioner and Shampoo
You know how you’ve spent your entire life washing your hair with shampoo first and conditioner second? TRESemmé are ready to challenge that with their new range that starts with a conditioner first to nourish mid-lengths and ends, then a shampoo to gently cleanse the scalp. Why? So your hair isn’t weighed down unnecessarily from product build-up. Genius, right?
Tom Ford Soleil Contouring Compact in Soleil Afterglow
This gorgeous palette may be more on the pricey side ($160 to be exact), but we think you’re getting a great deal. Inside, discover a pink and pearly shade to illuminate, medium pink for a flush of colour, and a chocolate hue to contour away. Plus, they can even be used on your eyes as a shadow - have we won you over yet?
NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Intriguing
You know a product is good when not one or two, but three people in the office can’t stop swiping it on their lips. The latest product that our team is obsessed with (Carli and Alex will certainly agree with me!) is the new NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil due to its easy-to-use design and smoothing formula. As for the shade? We think it’s the perfect neutral, and it complements a range of skin tones - from light right through to dark.
L’Oréal Paris True Match Highlight Illuminating Liquid
Love a dewy finish? Pat a small drop of this illuminating liquid into cheekbones and down the bridge of your nose for a glowy finish. Or better yet, transform your regular liquid foundation into one with a healthy sheen - simply pour out a pea-sized amount of foundation into your hand, add a teensy drop of this product, mix it up, and apply to your skin.
shu uemura petal skin foundation & 55 brush
If your skin tone leans towards pink or yellow and you struggle to find a foundation that truly matches your skin tone, then shu uemura petal skin foundation could be your calling. This is the newest base that’s on our radar, which can camouflage blemishes and leave skin looking naturally radiant without feeling heavy. And the ultimate tool to apply the product with? The ergonomic shu uemura 55 brush, which features thousands of baby-soft hairs that won’t scratch the skin but are made with enough resistance to buff the formula into your complexion.
Urban Rituelle Coconut, Honey, Almond & Chia Wellness Cleansing Bar
Coconut, honey, almond and chia may be good for your insides, but these ingredients work a treat on your skin, too. We can’t get enough of Urban Rituelle’s new body cleansers, which are packed with the healthy ingredients and smell good enough to eat.
Aveda Shampure Thermal Dry Conditioner
So you know about dry shampoos, but what’s the deal with dry conditioners? In short, they’re lightweight sprays that work to condition the hair without weighing down your locks, and there’s no need to wash the formula out when you use it. Aveda’s Dry Conditioner contains a blend of nourishing oils like jojoba and sunflower to keep hair moisturised.
