La Prairie Skin Caviar Harmony L’Extrait
Rebuild the architecture of your skin with the new La Prairie Skin Caviar Harmony L’Extrait by lifting, firming and sculpting the contours of your facial structure. Formulated with microfluidic technology, this formula delicately fuses with the skin upon application and focuses on restoring the vertical pillars of our skin ligaments to fight against gravity. The rich and nutritious benefits of caviar are cultivated in a way to bring life to the skin from a cellular level, leaving the complexion hydrated, voluminous and toned.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Rose Metals
The ABH Rose Metals Eyeshadow Palette is one of the best accompanying palettes that we have seen in a long time! An accompanying palette has all the shades that you may not use together all the time but they come in extra handy when you need that little boost for a makeup look.
Full of metallics, glitters, shimmers and mattes, the tones of these shadows are still on the neutral side. A step up from your usual everyday shades this palette is full of golds, coppers, burgundies and bronzes.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Glam To Go Palette
If you are a simple eyeshadow person who has a particular liking for rosy shades, the ABH Glam To Go Palette has an eight pan selection of romantic shadows. Complete with a pale shimmer and a dark brown, you can truly create the most natural looks or smoke it out for a night time event.
The matte transition shades are especially wonderful for an easy one and done look while the satin shadows are always there if you want to soften the vibe with some sparkle.
If you are travelling this year, consider picking up the Glam To Go Palette for a summer appropriate eyeshadow companion!
Clinique Even Better All-Over Primer + Colour Corrector
Colour correcting under our eyes is one sure way to disguise the evidence of a night of hard work or partying. Fake it til you make it with the Clinique Even Better All-Over Primer + Colour Corrector.
Clinique is the master of skincare infused makeup and the proof is in the pudding. The Even Better All-Over Primer + Colour Corrector is packed with vitamin C and caffeine for brighter under eyes. Hyaluronic acid keeps this formula lightweight and hydrating so that your concealer can blend seamlessly into the skin.
Available in two shades, you will be sure to find your colour corrector match due to its flexible formulation that is applicable to a range of different skin tones.
Aleph Beauty Lucid and Atmos
Aleph is a makeup brand that is near and dear to our hearts. Sustainable, naturally derived and extremely high performing products- you won’t be disappointed in their newest releases. Presenting Lucid Lip Gloss/ Balm and Atmos Hybrid Eye Pigment!
Everyone needs the Lucid Lip Gloss/ Balm. It’s a high shine lip protecting balm that you can use on its own or layer on top of your favourite lipsticks to give it a glossy kick. Additionally, the ingredients are Chatty Chums approved- argania spinosa fruit extract, kiwifruit seed oil and vitamin E regenerates, hydrates and antiages the delicate skin on the lips.
Depending on the shade, the Hybrid Eye Pigments can be used as a cream shadow or an eyeliner. Because Atmos is a beautiful nude pink full of icy shimmers, we recommend lathering your eyelids with this shade for the most ethereal look. Brush some bronzer or blush on the outer corners and layer up the mascara for a goddess makeup look.
Hourglass Ambient Soft Glow Foundation
The Hourglass Ambient Soft Glow Foundation is a must have for combo/ oily skin types! High coverage, lightweight and long-wearing - this is one of the best foundation releases this year!
Inspired by the Ambient Lighting Collection, this foundation diffuses the skin and refines skin texture while providing excellent coverage without the cakeyness. It claims to have a transfer resistant formula that will fight against humidity and sweat. After a few test rounds, we can affirm that the Ambient Soft Glow is oily skin approved! The light diffusing pigments and blurring spheres also make this foundation great for those who may want to disguise skin texture for a special event.
Hourglass Phantom Volumizing Glossy Balm
We can’t get enough of the new Hourglass Phantom Volumizing Glossy Balm! If you love a plush feel to your glossy lip products, you may want to take a look at your nearest MECCA to check this product out!
It is a unique solid lip gloss formula that is contained in an unretractable compartment. Although there have been some complaints about the packaging, there is a very clear reason for why it has been made this way. The formula is incredibly soft and cannot possibly survive if it was able to be turned up and down constantly. As such, this packaging provides physical protection towards the integrity of this formula.
On the lips, the Phantom Glossy Balm is plush, blurring and intensely hydrating. It gives the lips a jelly effect that is gorgeous for the summer time!
