In the fast-paced nature of the beauty world, it can be hard to navigate through product newness and which launches are actually worth your hard-earned money. From the very best in tanning, skincare and makeup picks to get you glowing, we round up our favourite launches from 2022 so far.
Spring is coming, which means our tireless self-tanning routines will once again rear their heads. Gone are the days of full-length trousers (isn’t not having to shave great?) and turtlenecks as we welcome shorts, skirts and crop tops. Get your skin summer ready with the Isle of Paradise Self-Tanning Oil Mist. Dubbed the world’s longest lasting tan due to its staying power, this hydrating formula contains colour correcting technology to help brighten and compliment skin tones. With hyaluronic acid and argan oil, the tanning mists protects and hydrates, giving you pins that you’ll be proud to show off.
Sticking to bronzing products, because who doesn’t want glowing skin, is the Milk Makeup Bionic Bronzer. Made up of 90% natural ingredients, this liquid bronzer comes in a multitude of shades designed to deliver a seamless, sun-kissed look. Simply buff into the contours of cheeks as well as your forehead for a warm, summer glow.
Morphe have recently unveiled their latest collab with social media influencer and makeup mogul Nyane. Focused on pigmented products, the Fierce Fairytale Lipstick trio is a set of three super pigmented, high coverage matte lipsticks. From a pastel pink that’s perfect for summer days, to a terracotta hue that will compliment bronze looks, the universally flattering trio of shades are set to be your new handbag essentials.
Be honest, when was the last time you updated your beauty blender? To avoid acne and infection (both of which can be caused by a less than fresh sponge), you should clean your beauty blender on a weekly basis and replace it every few months. The Rawr Beauty Cosmetic Blender Set comes with different sized and shaped beauty blenders, perfect for applying both liquid and powder formulas and ensuring you have that perfect base that you strive to achieve.
Striving for visibly hydrated, plump skin? Of course, you are. Combining SPF30 with pure hyaluronic acid, the gel-cream formula targets surface wrinkles and lines, whilst creating a dewy, hydrated base and protecting from harmful UVA/UVB rays. The best part? There’s no white cast, as there is with other skincare products containing high amounts of SPF, and the product is invisible on all skin tones.
Few too many after work drinks? The ROC Hydrate & Plump Gel Eye Cream will be your new BFF. Fuelled by hyaluronic acid, the potent eye cream instantly delivers brightening results, whilst caffeine alleviates any pesky morning after puffiness and peptides visibly lift and firm the eye contour. The consistency is lightweight, meaning it can be used daily, both at morning and at night, for powerful results that can be visible in as little as two weeks.
ICYMI, everyone’s favourite tanning brand has recently released their very own skincare line. Focused around super skincare ingredients, the range offers key products that are a must have in every skincare routine, at affordable prices. Skin looking a bit ‘meh’? This chemical exfoliant contains AHA and PHA, two active ingredients that pack a potent punch and work together to exfoliate and resurface the skin, for a brighter, smoother and healthier complexion.
When a brand launches their first new launch in four years, you know a lot of time, love and research has gone into that product, which is exactly the case with the HairStory Hair Oil Daily Treatment. Formulated with a blend of 8 essential oils, including fatty acids, nourishing oils and minerals, this styling oil helps to smooth out frizz, add shine and fight signs of damage, creating manageable, soft hair for less frazzle and more dazzle.
Your face gets all the love with the very best in skincare and treatments, so why should your body miss out? For those suffering with pesky body blemishes, this gentle cleanser reigns supreme. Crafted with blemish busting ingredients such as salicylic acid as well as hydrating aloe vera and vitamin B, this soap free wash banishes blemishes, sloughs off stubborn dead skin and reduces excess sebum, so you can say goodbye to whiteheads and blackheads for good.
Say hello to your most intense lashes ever. Featuring iris extract for ultimate lash comfort and protection, the patented, oversized brush is specially designed to grab onto every lash with maximum impact. The formula comes in an ultra-intense, couture black finish for maximum drama with minimum effort. We love.
The retinol craze isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, and with good reason. This potent overnight cream contains a powerhouse of anti-ageing ingredients. Petroleum-free retinoid works to reduce fine lines and increase production of collagen, whilst melatonin aids deep sleep and helps to improve skin tone, so you can wake up feeling rejuvenated, hydrated and with wrinkles reduced. Who said mornings aren’t fun?
