Quick, get your purses at the ready, because these new summer beauty launches will make you want to race to the shops…
Up Your Lash Appeal
Too Faced already have one iconic mascara under their belt, Better Than Sex, and now they’ve added a new launch that is causing a huge stir. Damn Girl will give you extreme lashes that last a full 24 hours. The new brush is amazing and the ingredients lengthen the lashes using a whipped formula that contains air particles so that your lashes look thicker too. It’s only just launched and is already topping bestseller lists – that’s how good it is!

The Perfect Brow
This new beauty launch takes inspiration from an old Hollywood trick – setting eyebrows with soap. It’s a technique that many people still use today, but Iconic London have just brought out a product that doesn’t have the downsides of soap such as residue and stickiness. Brow Silk not only sets your brows after you’ve filled them in, but it also binds to sparse or patchy areas of hair, making brows look instantly thicker.

Appear Lit From Within
That glow, the one that looks like it’s just naturally radiating from your face, is what we’re all after… right? Well here come NARS to the rescue with their new Orgasm Liquid Highlighter. Just a couple of drops of this either under or over your foundation will give you a beautiful highlight and, because it’s the same shade as the iconic Orgasm blush, it’s super flattering on all skin tones.
Look And Feel Empowered
Do you like your beauty with a side-helping of the feel-good factor? Charlotte Tilbury has just launched a new range of 11 lipsticks and has pledged an unbelievable £1 million to Women for Women International to inspire #LIPSTICKCONFIDENCE. Charity aside, these lipsticks are stunning in their own right – the packaging is amazing, they’re refillable and each shade is named after famous women, including JK Rowling, Amal Clooney and the shade we’ve particular fans of – Glowing Jen (after Jennifer Aniston).
