The best new launches to land on the beauty desk in the last week.

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Prepping Essence Primer Drops, €13.89, out now

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 Prisma Protect SPF30, €70, out now

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.

Murad Night Fix Enzyme Treatment, €80

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.

Lancome Renergie Yeux Multi-Glow Eye Cream, €55, out March 27

A blend of active ingredients – linseed extract and red berry extract – brighten and firm the contours of the eye, evening out thinning skin and energizing eyes that feel tired and papery.

Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk, €10.99

Klorane haircare is created with botanical active ingredients held in recycled plastic packaging. They sell one dry shampoo every ten minutes around the world! This one is vegan, hypoallergenic and very gentle, with no white residue or chalky feel to the hair – just soft, voluminous and clean hair. 

Maybelline Tattoo Brow Waterproof Gel €14.99

No matter your skill level, get fuller, natural-looking brows with the new waterproof gel from Maybelline, available in 10 hair matching shades that swipe on easily and won’t smudge or transfer.

Benefit Cosmetics Cheekleaders Bronze Squad and Benefit Cosmetics Cheekleaders Pink Squad, €65 each

Benefit’s new Bronze Squad and Pink Squad are all-in-one contour, blusher, highlighting heroes. 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.

Garnier Micellar Milky Cleansing Water, €7.99

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.

Shiseido Essentialist Eye Palette, €44

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. 

Blank Canvas Cosmetics Travel Brush Set, €40

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.
