Created with the art of seduction in mind, this eau de parfum has been blended to be seriously addictive. It starts with the scent of honeyed peach, as humans we're designed to find fruit smells pretty irresistible, osmanthus flower and cocoa make this a headier, warmer scent as the day (or evening) wears on.
Neal's Yard Remedies and Deliciously Ella have collaborated on a cleanser and moisturiser. The duo feature Ella's favourite rose scent as well as plenty of superfoods including coconut, avocado and blueberry. This cleanser removes all traces of dirt and makeup quickly and effectively leaving skin feeling soft, not tight.
Californian-based designer optical brand Oliver Peoples have collaborated on a collection of three fragrances with cult perfume brand Byredo. The three fragrances are inspired by California as viewed through different-coloured lenses. Moss (pictured) blends Californian lemon, patchouli and a warm sand accord for a decidedly addictive scent.
Designed for women going through the quarter-life crises and inspired by the skincare rituals of Korean women, Origins has added this Essence Lotion to its Original Skin line-up. After cleansing, sweep this over skin to minimise pores and boost hydration without clogging the skin.
This is one of the hardest working polishes you'll find. It has a built-in base coat, UV filters that prevent the polish discolouring and promises to strengthen nails by 72%, as well as smoothing out pesky ridges in the nails. Oh, and it's only £6.
This clever lotion works like a salt spray but without any of the associated dryness. It will coax beachy waves out of even the finest hair. Plus, it fakes day-old texture if you want to style an updo on freshly washed hair.
This versatile sheeny highlighting powder offers a pretty glow to either face or body. It comes in three shades: light, medium and dark, and the colour is buildable for each.
Makeup Geek and vlogger Manny MUA have collaborated on this collection of nine eye shadows. A combination of matte and shimmers, there are wearable daytime nude hues and darker richer warm shades to add depth to a nighttime smoky eye.
For fine-haired readers, this dry shampoo should be your new go-to. It works to soak up oil from roots like any dry shampoo, but it's totally invisible. What's more, it offers a subtle root lift to give your hair a fuller, thicker look.
How can you not be a little bit (or a lot) obsessed with Christian Louboutin's lipsticks? I mean, just look at it. The latest iteration are matte shades encased in gold. This deep burgundy will be a staple come autumn, or wear it now and make a statement.
With four suits-all strobing powders, this palette will highlight a summer tan or add much-needed radiance to a pale complexion come winter.
A rich warm burgundy shade, this liner is part of makeup artist Lucia Pica's debut makeup collection for Chanel. Wear it alone for a bolder effect or use it to add intensity to a brown smoky eye.
