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 but you haven’t seen anything til you’ve tried Oskia’s new adaptive tan mist and face drops. Working deep within your skin’s layers to boost your melanin levels, this formula encourages a tan that’s truly natural without sitting in the sun for hours on end. Genius.
Meanwhile Benefit is back once again with a beauty routine-changing brow product, pulling out all the stops for a 4-in-1 brow defining pencil. Just when you think they can’t get any better, they out-do themselves. Bravo, Benefit.
And ghd has teamed up with fashion brand Lulu Guinness in line with the #KissThisCancer campaign, bringing a beautiful new printed version of their iconic gold styler. £10 from each one sold will go to Breast Cancer Now, meaning you’re doing your bit in the fight against cancer by purchasing one.

It’s time for a big beauty haul.
Ten years ago Aveda decided to take their Cherry Almond range off shelves. It had been one of the brand's heroes for 30 years. Well it's back. There are two reasons why you should use it: 1) it will give you really, really soft hair that you'll want to play with all day. 2) it will make you smell like a Mr Kipling Cherry Bakewell. So win win.
Urban Outfitters, much like ASOS and Topshop, has launched their own line of beauty products. Theirs, called ohii, is a 13-piece vegan collection, which includes this mascara. Let us take a second to appreciate it. It is mini, but that's what makes it so mega. The brush coats every single hair, even the tiny ones you can't see, AND it makes doing your bottom lashes a doddle. A new MC fave.
Very clever researchers at University of Bristol have found that even a really short nap during the day can heighten your response time and help you process information. Basically, napping is GOOD FOR US and should be encouraged. In response to these findings, This Works new Nap Spray has the highest concentration of their wonder Sleep Superblend to help you fall asleep faster.
One reason we included this on the list is because it's probably one of the best looking lip balms we've ever seen. But the other reason is because of the Shea Butter, Coconut and Avocado Oil in it, it's perfect for lips about to go into Winter.
Cara Delevingne is back fronting the campaign for Burberry's newest fragrance for women and it's every bit as fun as you'd expect. She sings about being a Londoner whilst driving around the capital on an open-top bus. Created by master perfumer Francis Kurkdjian, the fragrance is a gourmand with notes of English berries, jasmine, violet, dry amber and musks.
Chanel makeup always knows how to get us excited and this new 'lip powder' is no different. Calling it the 'new generation' of matte liquid lipstick - it goes on powdery, but upon contact with the lips it becomes creamy. It feels super comfortable, like you aren't wearing lip colour at all. Whilst powder might sound messy, the sponge applicator and squeezy bottle means you can apply on the go.
Hooray! Christian Louboutin have launched a liquid eyeshadow collection and it's grrrreat. There are six nudes and six metallic shades - we recommend you buy one of each, to use together. It glides onto lids and lasts forever.
In 1957, Hubert de Givenchy created a bespoke fragrance for Audrey Hepburn. He asked if we could sell it to the masses. Her reply was, 'Jew vous l'interdis!' which means I forbid you. In 2018, that scent has been re-imagined finally for the masses. There are worse people to smell like...
A makeup collection inspired by the glamour of the Seventies and Eighties. Full-on colour and sparkle is the name of the game. Set up by a former Nars makeup artist, these lipsticks were made for Saturday nights out.
There is NOTHING more annoying than when you get white deo marks all over your clothes. It can put even the most zen human into a blinding rage. So we bow down to Dove's new Invisible Care Deodorant Stick that leaves no trace whatsoever. They've even tested it on 100 colours. They've got a lot of time on their hands, but we're thankful for that.
Save this one for pay day. The reason for the high price point is that La Prairie put A LOT of time and money into their research and development to try and find the best way to fight the signs of aging. Their original cream has had a facelift (a non-surgical one of course) and whilst before they could only use extract of caviar the new version reaps the benefits of the entire egg. What does that mean? Well essentially using it morning and night will give you a more lifted and tightened complexion.
The latest offering from brow authority Benefit is tons of fun, but don't be fooled by its playful appearance. The super fine pencil allows you to fill and design your brows with expert precision, as well as an edge-defining shade and highlighter for the perfectly sculpted finished arches. Safe to say Benefit has done it again.
If, like us, you are desperately holding on to the final days of summer, then here's a really simple way to keep the heat and blue skies alive. A white floral fragrance mixed with citrus bergamot and mandarin. It smells like a dazed walk at dusk in a sleepy French village.
When you walk into someone's house and they have Aesop hand soap next to their kitchen sink, you know you're in a chic household. If you want to take it that one step further then we insist you invest in their first piece of interior decor - the Studio Henry Wilson designed solid Brass Oil Burner. Next level smartness.
If you loved the Powermattes, think of these as the same amount of pigment but an intensely glossy, almost wet-look version. The dense, rich formula is packed with vitamin E to keep your lips moisturised while you wear. With these on the scene, maybe glossy really could be the new matte...
The new Hair Benefits collection from Batiste is excellent dry shampoo made even better. Whatever your hair type, there's an added benefit to help treat your locks as well as cleanse them; volume boost, damage repair, anti-frizz and hydration. We love them all.
Relatively new on the scene, Decorté is a must-try if you're a fan of high end beauty brands. The lightweight Sheer Brilliance foundation is infused with Onsen water, which floods the skin with minerals that'll leave it looking fresher and healthier. Think your skin but after the best night's sleep of your life.
A really unique gift for either a friend or yourself, this hand poured candle is a work of art. Perfectly balancing citrus and floral notes, it blends orange blossom, lilac, lemon and jasmine for a delicious scent that fills the room.
