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 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 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.
The brains behind Nails Inc, Thea Green, has created this super fun lifestyle brand: My Mood. From phone cases and stickers, to bath salts and make-up bags the products are designed collaboratively with their My Mood Board community group. We struggled to pick a favourite product, but you can see why we went with this cute headband, right?!
We love a new brand, and Nuddy is right up every modern woman's street. Encouraging us to reduce our plastic consumption and switch back to a good old bar of soap, the bars are vegan friendly and made from triple milled shea butter. Most importantly, they smell great and are super fun. We LOVE them.
Alcohol-free and made using renewable ingredients, Hermetica's fragrances are sustainability's answer to perfume. An innovative 'digital fragrance' brand, take the short personality quiz to find out which fragrance you're best suited to (we chose our favourite first and so can say the quiz is indeed accurate). Even better, you can purchase one of the sampling kits and later put the cost towards a full sized bottle once you've chosen your new signature scent.
Forget what you think you know about fake tan, because this new mist from Oskia is a game-changer (and we don't use that expression lightly). As well as giving your skin a gentle, not orange, tan, this formula gets deep into your skin's layers to boost your melanin levels - your skin's natural pigment - to produce a sunless tan that's naturally yours. If that's not incredible, we don't know what is.
ghd has teamed up with Lulu Guinness to bring you there hero gold styler emblazoned with a fun kiss print in support of the #KissThisCancer campaign. £10 from every buy goes to Breast Cancer Now, so you're doing your bit for charity, too. Sleeker hair that's making a difference? We're down.
As well as your traditional Eau de Parfum, it's now the thing to have your signature scent in different forms, from body oil to hair mist. Available in five of the brand's bestselling scents; Intoxicated, Moonlight in Heaven, Good Girl Gone Bad, Straight to Heaven and Love, you'd better snap up this Limited Edition By Kilian hair and body oil quick if you want in.
The new primer plus range from Bobbi Brown targets all of the major skincare concerns: there's Radiance for dull skin, Mattifier for oily types, and we're currently loving Protection for all our high SPF needs. Featuring broad-spectrum protection, you can layer this non-greasy buy under makeup and top up throughout the day.
Based on a real lemonade recipe Tom discovered during a trip to Peloponnese, Greece, this fragrance is a refreshing and uplifting citrus delight. Blending lemon, mandarin, mint and sea salt, it truly is the scent of Mediterranean holidays.
The brand new launch from T3 is the investment you need to make if you're battling frizz with your current dryer. An upgrade on the Cura dryer, the Cura Luxe is a dream come true when it comes to blow drying. Negative ions smooth the hair's cuticle for an overall sleeker finish, with the dryer also featuring a 'cool shot' button to seal your style.
Why have just one signature scent when you can layer them to create a bespoke fragrance every time? Experimental Perfume Club's first Layers collection lets you do just that with the beautiful scents of Bergamot, Jasmine and Sandalwood Musk.
Your favourite cleansing balm now comes in a supersize, Limited Editition rose scented version and, even better, it's donating vital funds to Breast Cancer Care. Elemis has pledged to donate £25,000 to Breast Cancer Care, no matter how many sales they make.
Now you can boost the results of your FaceGym workout by buying the effects in a bottle. Consider these a protein shake for your face, packed with quinoa, banana and raspberry seeds, olive squalane and coffee bean oil. Available in Signature, Brightening and Clear Skin blends, you can pick the formula that's best tailored to your skin's needs.
Who doesn't love a multi-use balm? Montamonta have teamed up with the London Honey Company to bring you a honey infused version of the bathroom cabinet staple.

The ever famous Jurlique hand cream now comes in a delicious limited edition for summer 2018. Deeply nourishing and moisturising, it's a great way to keep your hands looking their best this season.
The latest addition to Lixir's millennial pink line-up is a genius three step mask to clear pores and refine the complexion. Keratolytic enzymes break down the bond between dead skin cells, white clay draws out impurities and reduces sebum before drying down into a physical exfoliant to rub the dead cells away. Thumbs up from us.
You already love the shower and bath oil, so we can only imagine the excitement that a hair and body nourishing version will cause. Launching very soon, Jo Malone London's Lime Basil and Mandirin multipurpose oil will take your signature scent-abilities to another level.
Bumble and Bumble's best selling beachy spray now comes in a coconutty, Malibu beach-inspired version that'll whisk you away to Stateside paradise. Well, not literally, but it DOES smell really good and produces authentic, tousled beachy waves to boot.
Having recently launched in the UK, Dr Roebuck's is an all-natural skincare range that captures the wellness scene of Australia. The Byron mask targets clogged pores using peppermint oil, green tea extract and kaolin with no added nasties. Delicious.
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...
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.
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.
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.
