We've tested all the new launches to bring you the best of the best (yaaaass)
The life of a beauty addict is never dull thanks to dozens of brand new make-up, 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 – because nobody wants to splash their hard earned cash on something they’ll eventually regret buying.
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?
La Roche-Posay have come up with a genius way of keeping us safer in the sun; their UV sensor clips onto clothes and can be tracked via an app on your phone. So clever.
Meanwhile, Jo Malone London has launched another of their lovely charity candles shining a light on mental health, this time in uplifting Lily of the Valley and Ivy. 75% of the cost of the candle (minus VAT) will be donated to ten different charities supporting people with mental health issues and their families.
And Laura Mercier’s legendary tinted moisturiser is now even better, having just had a bit of a makeover. It now comes with even more skin-loving ingredients and all-important SPF. Dreamy.
Keep scrolling for our curated edit of the best new make-up launches and skincare drops, waving goodbye to your healthy bank balance in the process. Make sure you check back here for all the latest new beauty products 2019 brings in, as and when they’re announced.
It’s high time you treated yourself to a big beauty haul, we say.
Laura Mercier is the woman responsible for bringing tinted moisturiser to the everyday consumer, and her legendary formula has now had a bit of a makeover. It now comes with more shade options, hydrating ingredients, antioxidants and a broad spectrum SPF. Excellent.
Who doesn’t love a new fragrance? Nobody we know, that’s for sure. After the success of last year's Gabrielle launch, now comes Gabrielle Essence: think ylang-ylang, orange blossom and tuberose for a truly uplifting spritz.
Cult US dermatologist-developed skincare brand CeraVe landed on UK shores relatively recently, and their greats are gradually making their way across the pond. The SA moisturiser is a great skin-smoother, while the SA cleanser is great for oily or congested skin.
A super cooling formula that comes with a handy roller-ball applicator, this is great for tired or puffy eyes that need a bit of a pick-me-up.
Rihanna's make-up line is truly the gift that keeps on giving and, after the success of her first foundation, we were seriously excited for the launch of another. We love both formulas, but the Hydrating PRO FILT'R will be your bag if your skin is on the dry side, or you like a less-matte finish with a bit of a glow.
You'll most certainly feel alive after using this shower scrub. Infused with magnesium, its many benefits include improving joint health and circulation, helping our bodies to produce more energy and relieving stress and stiff muscles. Also enriched with charcoal and ginger, your skin will be left feeling fresh and revived. Get your hands on it, pronto!
Caudalie's best selling Beauty Elixir has had a summer make-over. The multipurpose spritzer that refreshes your skin now comes in a beautifully designed bottle inspired by the hero ingredients; think rose, grape, rosemary and orange blossom. It's limited edition, so get your hands on it fast...
We loved the Rose Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, and now there's a facial oil to go with it. Super nourishing, it'll leave your face with a seriously healthy glow.
What do we want? Results! When do we want them? Now! This collection of high performance perfecting serums from Intraceuticals is your secret weapon to fight dullness, dehydration, fine lines and sagging skin. All five serums (Highlight, Lift, Eyes, Lines and Hyaluronic Base Serum) can be used in conjunction with each other, or you can customise them to create a tailored regime depending on your individual skin concerns - for me it was dark circles and fine lines around the eyes. The results? After only a few weeks my skin felt smoother, the fine lines around my eyes had become less noticeable and my eye bags were less pronounced. Suffice to say, the Retouch Eyes serum (£69), will forever be by my side.
This does-it-all cream is designed to streamline your haircare routine. The father and son duo behind the brand know that great hair comes from a good hair cut and that products should just accentuate that. Which is why they created this, which tames strays, conditions, defines curls, smooths frizz, primes for styling, adds texture and boosts shine. Not bad for £10, eh?
We are completely loyal to the Vichy Minéral hydrating serum, so we can only imagine we'll be the same with the new Eye Fortifier. It contains hyaluronic acid to plump and hydrate, caffeine to drain and decongest, dermachlorella to brighten, and of course Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water, which is bursting with skin benefits.
Glossier have added two new shades to their bestselling lip gloss. There's now Holographic, which adds a opalescent shimmer, but it's the red that's really got us excited. It gives a subtle high shine hint of rouge and Michelle Obama has been spotted wearing it. SOLD.
Called the Great 8 because it's one step with eight benefits. It protects against UVA and UVB, pollution, infrared and blue light. AND it perfect the skin by hydrating, brightening, purifying and controlling excess oil. Not bad eh?!
Off on a week's break, but booked onto a budget airline, so are beholden to the under 100ml rule? Well Lancaster's Riviera collection has got you sorted. Prep your skin with the preparer, which descales and smooths; protect with the SPF30; and prolong your tan with the Maximiser, which intensifies melanin production.
Yes this is a little spenny for a body oil, but once you catch a whiff of their well-loved Carnal Flower scent you'll hand over your credit card no questions asked. It's a beautiful combination of tuberose and musk and smells exactly what you imagine a white floral should smell. You only need to use a few drops each time, so the investment will last you a while.
Leather scents are having a major moment right now, and Byredo's divine Cuir Obscure fragrance now comes in one of their great hair mists. With top notes of amaretto and nutmeg, middle notes of ylang ylang and arabian rose and a base of black leather, musk and golden patchouli, we'll be spritzing this deliciousness for weeks to come.
Botanics has been a household name for decades, but it's recently had a bit of a jzhush. The new Overnight Facial Oil is 100% organic helps to soothe and calm the skin, for better-looking skin when you wake up in the morning.
Struggle with removing stubborn eye make-up? Bobbi's genius new cleanser does what it says on the tin, melting make-up off in a matter of seconds. Use as your first make-up removing cleanse before a second wash with this or your favourite cleanser.
Jo Malone London's charity candles are back in a gorgeous new scent, Lily of the Valley and Ivy. For every candle sold, the brand will donate 75% of the £48 (minus VAT) to charities supporting those with mental health problems and their families.
When the Great British summer (read: humidity) hits, a lot of us struggle with the delight that is frizzy hair. Enter Frizz Fixer, a non-greasy spray to help shield each and every strand of your hair from the frizz-causing elements.
Three of Redken's best-selling lines (Extreme, Color Extend and All Soft) now come in vegan, naturally fragranced and sulphate free versions – with no compromise on performance. The packaging is all made from 100% recycled plastic, and you'll only pay £1 more than the original version. It's a 10/10 from us.
Ever wished there was a way to monitor your sun exposure? Now you can; along with its app, La Roche-Posay's nifty little gadget tracks how much UV exposure you're getting to help you stay as sun safe as possible. Not only that, but it'll let you know pollution, pollen and humidity information for your area. Just download the My Skin Track app, clip on your clothes and go. It's on our Christmas lists already (too soon?)
Designed to help you enhance and define waves and curls, this pint-sized wand is the perfect match for natural looking. With three different temperature settings so that you can optimise for you and your hair, and a mineral-infused, tapered barrel, your hair will be its bouncy, volumised and shiny best.
Excuse us for a second whilst we bask in the joyous scent of Bamford's new fine fragrances. Gray, inspired by autumnal walks, is an earthy woody scent with sweet accents of cinnamon, orange and vanilla. Camille is a spring summer scent that with one whiff transports you to the middle of flower meadow in full bloom. If you like a chilly and fair weather fragrance, then we reckon we've just found your new favourites.
This cute little stick is designed to protect those sensitive and fragile areas of the face that are directly exposed to the skin's rays. Water and sweat resistant, this formula looks after your lips, cheeks, eyes, nose and forehead in the higher temperatures so you can go back to reading on your lounger.
Charlotte Tilbury is back with her super successful Hot Lips range. The second collection of wearable lipsticks are inspired by 11 iconic women and men in the make-up artist's life, like Edward Enniful, J.K.Rowling, Jennifer Aniston, Amal Clooney and more... But that isn't even the most exciting bit. Tilbury is pledging to donate £1 million of the sales to her charity partner Women for Women International - who help female survivors of war rebuild their lives and of which Tilbury is an ambassador. So what are you waiting for? Buy one and do your bit...
A soothing and repairing overnight treatment to support and replenish skin healthy while you sleep. You'll wake up with skin that just looks, well, "better".
If you dye your hair on the regular, protecting that colour is essential to avoid it going brassy or dull-looking. Use Briogeo's new Primer before styling to shield your shade from fade.
Worth over £85, Latest in Beauty has teamed up with the Eve Appeal's Get Lippy campaign, encouraging women to be more open about their gynaelogical health. You'll snap up brands like Elemis, Molton brown and Ciaté, and 10% of all proceeds will go to the Eve Appeal.
