Let’s talk about the top picks from this year’s beauty launches! Dive into our curated selection of makeup, skincare and fragrances that you don’t want to miss.

Beauty brands are thinking outside of the box in order to meet the standards of the growing beauty community. We can thank social media for that. Not only are we seeing extended shade ranges, but we’re also seeing unique formulations that push the boundaries of innovation.

Too Faced Kissing Jelly Lip Oil Gloss

Seems like the jelly formula is having a moment in the beauty industry right now, and Too Faced quickly jumped on this trend with the new Kissing Jelly Lip Oil Glosses!

We all know Too Faced kills it with their lip gloss formulations and the Kissing Jelly Lip Oils are no different. If you love a glossy lip but you hate anything sticky, this is the lipgloss for you. This hybrid formula is plush and silky on the lips, but gives you that same shiny impact as your traditional gloss formula.

Gisou Honey Infused Lip Oil Shimmer

MECCA is doing God’s work by bringing the Gisou Honey Infused Lip Oil Shimmer over to Australia and New Zealand!
Just like the original formula, the shimmer edition is packed with mirsalehi honey and oil– Gisou’s secret for hydrated lips. Furthermore, the patented hyaluronic acid ultra filling spheres smooth over texture and fine lines for faux-filler lips.

With real vanilla absolute toasted to perfection, this scent is bound to captivate you from the first whiff. Complemented by notes of orchid pink pepper and dark patchouli, Deep Dark Vanilla offers a rich and bold olfactory experience, perfect for those who are seeking a fragrance with depth and character.

Buy the Glow Recipe Hue Drops

Did somebody say Drunk Elephant D-Bronzi dupe?

If you didn’t know, Glow Recipe is inspired by k-beauty and you can really tell with the new Hue Drops. The bronze tone is gentle and the shimmer is subtle for a seamless glow. In contrast to the renowned D-Bronzi Drops by Drunk Elephant, which has a slightly richer texture, the Hue Drops by Glow Recipe presents a thinner consistency.

REN Radiance PHA Exfoliating Facial

REN strikes again with their latest launch, the Radiance PHA Exfoliating Facial. If you are a current fan of the Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic, we highly recommend supplementing your routine with the Radiance PHA Exfoliating Facial for even smoother and brighter skin.
On the other hand, if the Tonic is too intense for your liking, the Exfoliating Facial is formulated with dry and sensitive skin types in mind. Naturally derived PHA’s from prickly pears and pomegranate gently buff the top layer of your skin for instantly refined skin texture. According to REN, this product is even safe for eczema-prone skin!

Kayali Fragrances Vanilla Candy Rock Sugar

Vanilla Candy Rock Sugar is the latest addition to the Kayali range, defying expectations set by its playful name. Infusing notes of marshmallows, caramel candies and jellybeans, this fragrance is unapologetically sweet. Balanced by rum, sandalwood, patchouli and vetiver, the base notes provide a sense of relief, tempering the otherwise sugary profile of Vanilla Rock Candy.

Smashbox Halo Healthy Glow 4-in-1 Perfecting Pen Concealer

Smashbox has made the impossible possible. The Halo Healthy Glow 4-in-1 Perfecting Pen Concealer combines extreme durability with a hydrated and fresh finish, ensuring flawless coverage that lasts all day.

Don’t let the clickable pen design deceive you– this is not your typical eye brightener like the YSL Touche Eclat. The Halo Concealer offers substantial coverage that you can customise to your desired intensity.

Mecca Max Zoom Zip Liquid Eyeliner

Ever since the clean girl aesthetic, particular products like liquid eyeliner have taken the backseat. Although, as others have already pointed out, we’re bound to see the resurgence of bolder, louder looks this year. The makeup industry is gearing up for this vibrant comeback, eagerly anticipating a return to high-impact styles with releases like the Mecca Max Liquid Eyeliner.

Housed in a traditional liquid liner component, this product features a flexible felt tip applicator to create classic wings or graphic shapes with ease. Choose from the vibrant selection of shades for versatile looks!

This fragrance begins with notes of whiskey, blended with touches of woodsmoke, vintage leather and oak moss. At its foundation, a gentle breeze of cedar and warm amber musk– opulent, rich and sophisticated. This candle is ideal for larger spaces and hallways.

Ashley & Co Bonberry Candle

If you’re not a huge fan of big and bold vanilla fragrances, consider Bonberry by Ashley & Co for a fruity winter candle that oozes the spicy warmth that we all crave this time of year. Combining wild berries, lychee, distilled davana, geranium and musk blossoms, Bonberry exudes luxury and creates an enchantingly warm ambiance that elevates any space.

On another note, check out the Bonberry Body Wash for the most exquisite addition to your shower routine. The scent takes over the bathroom and last long on the skin.

Natasha Denona Hy-Gen Skincare Glow Beautifier

The Hy-Gen Skincare Glow Beautifier is one of the best highlighters to hit the market. Best used as an overall finishing powder on the high points of the face, achieve a wet skin glow that shines from a mile away. Not for the faint hearted, Natasha Denona has created a highlighter that can fake glass skin while diffusing skin texture due to its unique blend of dimethicone, synthetic wax, mica, saccharide isomerate and tocopherol.
