April Beauty News: Spring’s Beauty Launches

April Beauty News: Spring’s Beauty Launches

Melanie Morris finds some real high-performing heroes in spring’s beauty launches.


LOVE SUPREME

YSL Beauty continues to blaze a trail with innovative, lust-have make-up bag additions. This month, the launch of Volupte? Tint-in-Balm lipsticks, €33 each, blend a bright pop of sheer colour with a softening, nourishing core of balm to keep lips colourful and kissable right through summer. Available in 12 shades.

BENEFITS

Last year, Benefit’s Bold is Beautiful campaign raised over €47,000 for Look Good Feel Better, and Daisyhouse. This year, the same initiative is back. Book in for a brow wax in April, and 100% of the profits will go to these female-focused charities, and you’ll receive a free Gimme Brow mini as a thank you. There’s also a pop-up pink charity shop to explore in the South William Street store from April 5.

EXCLUSIVE

Forget fillers – feed lips with CODE Lip, €29, a blend of deep- penetrating hyaluronic acid that instantly plumps with longer-term visible effects.

ICE, ICE BABY

The third in a holy trinity of glistening body oils, Cocoa Brown Ice Goddess, €11.95, brings a clean, frosty sheen to the body’s contours. The result is fresh, light and youthful. Apply with a brush for maximum wattage.

 

HOT SHOTS

Yon-Ka’s collection of four beautifully scented boster oils, €49.50 each, offer a powerful hit of targeted treatment. Soothe, nourish, hydrate or rejuvenate skin by adding a few drops of your selected oil to existing skincare for a Ka-pow beauty boost.
