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?
Chanel’s SS19 Beauty Look dropped and we can’t get enough of the amazing highlighter, with super smart matching brush.
Meanwhile Benefit is back once again with a superb liquid [roller] liner, expanding on the already excellent Roller Lash. Want proof of how good it is? I lent it to my sister and it survived a pre-Boxing Day sales shift in retail, without budging or smudging.
And Becca have just launched an 18-strong lip liner collection that will make you realise just how much you need one.
Plus, Jo Malone London keep creating scents that we cannot live without. Not only is getting expensive, but we’re running out of shelf space. But we need this beautiful new scent too!
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 for a big beauty haul, we say…
Who would have thought we would be sending you to Net-A-Porter for a proper bargain. Well, it's true. This Clean Beauty Kit - filled with incredible products from brands that opt out of chemical ingredients and take on a more natural approach - is worth £560, but you only pay £120. That's £120 for 16 products, from brands like Susanne Kaufmann and Bamford, and a super smart wash bag. It's a complete no brainer.
Now you can wear your favourite ADP scent in your hair. This delicate take on rose is the easiest way to venture into the hair scent realm.
This is a great beauty product. It does what it says on the tin - gives you a healthy glow - and it does it very, very well. It's a clear gel that has microspheres of varying bronze shade suspended in it. As you apply it, the microspheres burst and give you the most beautiful touch of colour. The gel is non-sticky and absorbs really well, so doesn't feel cloying on the skin. You really can't put too much on either.
We are obsessed with the red bottle, inspired by precious rubies. Isn't it like a breath of fresh air in a sea of simple, clean-lined flagons that seem to everywhere right now?! And the scent? Thankfully, the original fragrance still holds true, but it's been spiced up with ginger, with an extra double helping of white flower with tuberose and jasmine.
It might smell a bit like you're working a Frappucino into your face, but this super charged exfoliator combines three types of sugars, coffee grains, with sweet almond and coconut oil to wake up tired skin and give it a boost of healthy glow.
If you don't currently use a lip liner, then perhaps these might convince you to invest? They are super creamy and make for th perfect base to your favourite lipstick. Line AND fill your lips in - think of it like a primer that will make your lippie last longer. There are a whopping 18 shades to choose from. And remember the lippie and the liner don't have to be a perfect match.
More and more of us are wearing leather scents, so Jo Malone London's latest launch is right on the money. Warming leather and smoky woods are combined with juniper and grapefruit, for a fragrance that's rich and hearty without being too overpowering. Bonus: It layers really well with a lot of your other favourite JML fragrances.
Let us introduce you to the smartest duo on the block. Chanel's SS19 highlighter stick is a stunning rosey-pink that glides onto the high points of the face. The new (and limited edition, so get shopping) brush helps to buff the gleam in seamlessly. Both will look incredible on your dressing table.
The entire Kate Somerville range has just launched into its first physical store space at Space NK, but there's also a new kid on the block: the iconic ExfoliKate in liquid form. A powerful blend of glycolic, malic and lactic acids, use as you would any exfoliating tonic for more radiant skin over time.
You loved Roller Lash, now meet Roller Liner: a matte-black pen that sweeps over your lash line that doesn't smudge at the ends for the perfect flick every time. If you want to try before you buy, Benefit are holding a pop-up in London (82A Commercial Street, E1) where you can get your makeup done by a makeup artist whilst you eat chicken wings. What. A. Combo.
Everyone wants white teeth no? Well if you’re going to use a whitening toothpaste, you better make it an award winning whitening toothpaste like Oral-B’s 3D White Whitening Therapy Enamel Care.
Combining salicylic and glycolic acids, this gel serum helps to get blemish-prone skin under control, promising results in just one week.
We love a multipurpose product: These versatile little shimmery formulas can be blended across the skin for a glowing complexion, or built up on the lids for a glitzy party eye. Thanks, Cover FX!
Witch Hazel and Eucalyptus leaf work to calm the complexion in this comforting sheet mask. These are made from bio-cellulose, which moulds itself to the skin better than your average paper one. Genius.
The ultimate French cool girl lipstick created by, well, the ultimate French cool girl, Jeanne Damas. Try finger application for the ultimate smudgy, lived-in look.
'Tis the season to take more baths, so there's no better time to douse yourself in Ameliorate's nourishing bath oil. Packed with soothing oat extract and sweet almond oil – and the brand's ultra hydrating LaH6 complex – this is the softest skin of your life, bottled.
This has a sheer, matte finish for that just kissed/just blotted effect. It's the 'chilled out weekend' lipstick.
Eye gloss had quite the moment last year and it's making its comeback for the party season. We found some eye glosses too thick and too stick, this is neither. It's really lightweight, so doesn't gloop onto your lashes. A brilliant alternative to glitter this festive season.
We love Bramley products so much. The brand's ethos is all about ethically sourced ingredients, producing small batches to prevent wastage and incredible scents. Their new line for little ones is the perfect addition.
It's getting colder, which means that as your mother always says, 'Don't leave the house with wet hair.' So, speed up the whole morning process with this low pH formula that seals the hair's cuticle layer and separates the hair stands, which decreases dry time.
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.
