Consider this your go-to holiday shopping list

Nothing brings us joy quite like a massive beauty haul, but it feels even better to fill up your basket with holiday beauty products. We’ve tested out some of the best of the beauty world’s newcomers for the summer holiday season – and trust us when we tell you you’re going to want all of these ahead of your next vacay, alongside your very best sun cream and best SPF moisturisers.

So what’s new in the world of holiday beauty products, we hear you ask?

Even the best moisturiser doesn’t always contain sun protection. But Elemis has relaunched its iconic Pro-Collagen Marine Cream with the summer-holiday-appropriate addition of SPF30, making use of the latest skin technologies to ensure your skin gets the best protection. Now you can moisturise without having to slather on a greasy sun cream afterwards.

Think you’ve spotted Bobbi Brown’s Skin Foundation Stick in the gallery? Take a closer look – these are actually the new Glow Sticks, part of the limited edition Follow the Sun collection, which offer shimmery highlights and bronzes that are perfect for the summer. Swatch them all to find your holiday favourite.

Then when it comes to lipsticks, we’re all over Fleur de Force’s new, limited edition MAC lipstick for the perfect summer pink. Prefer a liquid formula? Meanwhile Smashbox has just launched the (incredible) Be Legendary Liquid Lips, promising pout-worthy pigment and metallic sheen for the more daring of you.

Looking for the perfect red lipstick? Powder can help! This quiz will find the right red for you in no time at all!

Plus we’ve got an amazing mattifying powder, a gentle cleansing oil and a whole host of beauty bargains for you to snap up right away. So what are you waiting for? Shop our round up of the best holiday products from our gallery before they all sell out, and stash them straight in your suitcase. We promise you’ll love your new beauty haul.
