Our round-up of the best beauty loot that’s winging its way into stores this month…
Dress up your digits with Sally Hansen Velvet Texture Nail Polish in Velveteen, £6.99. The fuss-free polish is great as you don’t have to mess about dipping your fingers into textured powder!
If you’re a fan of foundation that’s so feather-light it feels almost like a second skin, we suggest you check out Maybelline Dream Flawless Nude, £8.99. It manages to give great coverage with a barely-there finish.
Campaigning for your body to have just as much fun as your hair, cult favourite Aussie is launching four delicious smelling body washes this month. Our pick is Shower Smoothie Body Wash, £4.75, which is packed with macadamia nut oil.
Finally! A powder that leaves your skin matte for eight hours, but doesn’t look cakey. Bourjois Silk Edition Compact Powder, £8.99 is, as its name suggests, super silky and fine resulting in complexion perfection!
Nothing ages you like dull skin that’s uneven in tone so stop both problems in their tracks with Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Deep Moisture Clarifying Cream, £41, which uses vitamin C and white birch to reduce the appearance of dark spots.
You better be quick as we’re predicting that this collaboration between London-based textile designer Nikki Strange and M&S sells out. It’s all prettily packaged (obviously) but practical too. Case in point: Limited Collection Nikki Strange Eyeshadow Palette, £10, which features 14 wearable shades.
Blush is a great anti-ager. ‘It’s the fastest way to create the illusion of those high model cheekbones,’ says legendary make-up artist Pat McGrath. Max Factor Crème Puff Blush, £8.99, is fast becoming our go-to with its finely-milled, baked texture which allow it to be soft and subtle.
Melvita Argan+, £32 is a skin saviour this winter. Argan and sunflower oils will nourish your dry skin whilst a cocktail of amino acids help to firm it up. Plus, it’s non-greasy so you can wear it during the day, not just at night.
If face masks are a thing of dreams – who has time to sit still for 10 mins?! – then you’ll love The Body Shop Drops of Youth Bouncy Sleep Mask, £22. Designed to be left on whilst you sleep, its stem cell technology will make magic happen so you wake up looking fresher.
If you’re looking to make your hair colour really last, switch to sulphate-free products. We like Wella Professionals Elements Renewing Mask, £14.50, which is free from sulphates, parabens and artificial colourants.
