We've tested all the new launches to bring you the best of the best
The life of a beauty addict is rarely ever dull thanks to dozens of brand new makeup, skin and hair products launching every single week.
New launches always bring with them a lot of hype, and so it can be hard to tell whether that hype is actually warranted; nobody wants to splash the cash on something they’ll end up hating.
We’ll be bringing you a break down of the best new releases you should be fighting to get your hands on before they sell out – which, trust us, they will do.
So, what’s good this month?
It wouldn’t be summer without stocking up on the best fake tan, and we’re loving the new launches from bronze intelligence St Tropez. As well as our favourite, the new Purity Bronzing Water Mousse, the brand has also launched a self-tanning face mist that’s perfect for building up your complexion while you sleep.
Meanwhile Chanel is taking centre stage when it comes to beauty innovations, having launched a mascara with the first ever 3D printed wand. The formula itself is also pretty genius, as it doesn’t require you to keep topping up the brush with more product.
And Estée Lauder has brought out its annual Bronze Goddess collection, containing everything you need to look, smell and feel like summer personified. From a Cooling Body Mist to their summer colour palettes, they’ve got you covered when it comes to seasonal beauty.

It’s time for a big beauty haul.
A plumping and hydrating hero, the Wrinkle Warrior mask contains three different sizes of hyaluronic acid to hydrate all layers of the skin, as well as red algae extract for longer lasting moisture. On a shallower note, who doesn’t love a pink face mask? So Instagrammable…
Chanel has created quite the revolution here, inventing the world’s first 3D-printed mascara wand. But the innovation doesn’t stop there, as the formula is enriched with micro cavities, which absorb the formula to get the precise amount needed to cover your lashes – no furious pumping of the mascara wand needed here. You’ll feel how much work went into this one with every single use.
A good BB cream is a beauty bag and, if it’s got an additional SPF, it’s even more important. Omorovicza’s protects against a whole host of environmental damage, while also perfecting your skin’s finish with a lightweight, non-greasy texture.
First came the fragrance paint brush, then came the paint cans. Jo Malone’s latest fragrance creation, a selection of body sprays, comes in four of her favourite scents: Vetiver, Fig, Grapefruit and Tuberose.
As well as smelling delicious, it’s even got a ball-bearing in the can that rattles when you shake it, like a real graffiti paint can.
A blue-based treatment for all shades of blonde, this treatment from Aussie brand Mr Smith removes yellow and brassy tones from the hair while simultaneously soothing the scalp.
When it comes to beauty, this is THE cult product to have in 2018 (and it’s finally available in the UK!) The Jet Lag mask is the perfect pick-me-up for dull or dry skin, giving it a big hit of hydration. Leave on for 15 minutes for a perk-up, or overnight for a serious quench.
Keeping with the gender neutral beauty theme, Neighbourhood Botanicals’ luxurious body oil is unisex (though we’re pretty sure you won’t want to share). Enriched with Vitamin E and containing no nasties, it’s the perfect way to get your skin summer holiday ready.
A pop of colour in jelly formula, Illamasqua’s latest blushers are cool, colourful and blendable for the perfect summer flush.
A great hydrating mist, this spray not only protects the skin from environmental damage, but it supports its natural ability to regulate water levels, keeping skin hydrated for up to 48 hours. The best bit? You only need to use one spritz, so one bottle will last for ages.
These brightening bronzers are the perfect natural, summery flush to finish off your look. They’re Limited Edition though, so shop ’em fast.
The perfect subtle wash of colour, the Satin editions are a sheer, buildable formula. We love shade Sur’Prunez Moi, a shiny, velvety plum. Go for a subtle eye look or layer up for more drama.
Preventing that ‘stale biscuit’ smell that goes hand in hand with fake tan is tricky – let alone making it smell good. But the self tan brainboxes of St Tropez have done exactly that with their easy-to-use water mousse, which smells of tropical hibiscus and summer holidays.
With so many products out there for oily and dry skin types, combination skin often gets overlooked. Aesop’s In Two Minds range was created specifically for combi skin; the facial hydrator is a lightweight moisturiser that balances the skin’s need for hydration and mattifying – your skin will be soft and oil levels kept at bay all day.
We love a Killwatt, so it’s great news that Fenty Beauty has just launched three more shade duos. Pictured here is Mimosa Sunrise / Sangria sunset, which looks dreamy on dark or olive skin tones – if you’re pale, give Sandcastle / Mint’d Mojito a whirl.
If there’s one hairstyle that says summer more than all the others, it’s beachy waves. Already heroes of summer hair, Bedhead has released a new texturising gel spray that’ll perfect your sunny waves.
