The best new launches to land on the beauty desk in the last week.
Blue pigments in the new L’Oreal Paris Infallible Prepping Essence brighten dull skin and prime the skin with a flawless base for even make-up coverage while hyaluronic acid and antioxidants give 24 hours of hydration to the skin.
Dermalogica’s new Prisma Protect SPF30 defends skin from UV light, pollution and free radicals, with matcha tea and sage giving brightening and antioxidant protection, plus moisture magnets to keep the skin hydrated and smooth. A true multi-tasking moisturiser.
Peptides, antioxidants and a blend of comforting and calming scents work in sync with your body’s circadian rhythm to fight against dehydration and dullness for skin that looks like it’s had the full eight hours. Like a night’s sleep for the sleep you’re not having.

Both include Benefit Cosmetics’ hero Hoola bronzer, with a new caramel shade to be found in the Bronze Squad palette, plus warm coral and dusky pink blush shades to suit all skin types, in a finely milled formula that gives a velvety soft, sheer flush.
If your skin can feel dry, red and irritated and you’re looking for a quick make-up fix without resorting to the damage of make-up wipes, get a bottle of this to keep in your bathroom. It’s very gentle on skin, anti-inflammatory and the milky emulsion formula leaves skin soft and thoroughly cleansed. A safe emergency must-have for when lazy make-up removal calls.
A few months back, Shiseido make-up relaunched with a mission of bringing Japan to the world with four innovative textures; dewy highlighters, masterful inks, gliding gel lipsticks and gloss and weightless powder eyeshadows and blush. Their eyeshadow textures are out of this world – super pigmented with a silky cream powder texture. The new summer shades, inspired by the streets of Tokyo, come in four coordinating colours and are available in eight wearable and trend focused shade harmonies.
A handy, easy-to-clean case holds six vegan and anti-bacterial brush essentials, including a foundation and powder brush – ideal for travelling and little handbags.
