Apparently it's summer (someone tell the weather forecasters), and that means we're ready and willing to stock our makeup bags with hot-weather buys.
We're getting in the mood for summer with the return of Estée Lauder's Bronze Goddess; this year it comes in the form of a skin-perfecting shimmering body oil. Then there's a Tom Ford eyeshadow duo that will create the most gorgeous golden eyes. Plus, Christian Louboutin has an exciting new addition to his makeup line-up. Sun or no sun, we're game for some new June beauty buys, if you are. Keep scrolling for our pick of the 10 new products exciting us this month.
A lip lacquer this imparts a rich colour and serious shine to your pout. It's non-sticky and definitely not for the faint-hearted.
Containing volcanic ash and mint, this scrub warms up in the shower (it gets surprisingly hot) to soothe muscles and thoroughly detox skin after a full-on workout.
With a trio of oils (olive, avocado and tamanu) and gritty exfoliating particles, this gel buffs hands smooth. It contains wonder ingredient silica that we like to take in supplement form for its skin-boosting properties, too.
Perfect for holidays, this two-in-one pot houses a shimmering gold powder and a bronze-hued cream to create numerous molten eye looks. Use the gold powder as a highlighter too.
Each year, the launch of new Bronze Goddess products is the signal that summer is here (cue happy dancing). This year, we're obsessed with the shimmering oil spray that imparts a gorgeous sheen and that addictive summery scent we all know and love.
Herbfarmacy has had a complete rebranding. The new and improved range of home-grown British and organic products is a great place to start if you want to dabble in the more natural side of skincare. We don't go anywhere without this soothing balm for the temples that contains calming hops, chamomile and spearmint.
If you want a mascara that does what it says on the tube, then look no further than this waterproof Better Than Sex mascara. It creates full, standout lashes that won't succumb to the pool, sea or summer showers.
In this effective micellar water, micelles attract dirt and grime like a magnet while rose water and chamomile soothe and repair. It makes light work of removing makeup—we keep it at our bedside.
Fans of Bobbi Brown's Beach perfume will love this lightweight fast-absorbing lotion containing a cocktail of skin-smoothing ingredients (aloe vera, jojoba oil, vitamin E and green tea all feature). It's delicately scented with Beach, a fruity, salty scent that conjures up thoughts of holiday.
Slip this infusion into your routine before or instead of a serum. It boasts Long Life Herb (that's its actual name) found on the island of Okinawa, also known as "the island of long life." A resilient herb, it grows on the harsh coastline and has a higher vitamin and mineral content than spinach and kale. This is like a superfood shot for your skin—think hydrated skin and a glowing complexion.
