From the new haircare launches keeping your colour salon-fresh to the latest Charlotte Tilbury must-have, each week we'll lead you through the new beauty launches that are worth your money and time.
After a brief hiatus, the pocket sized best-selling Glossier You Solid fragrance has returned, new and improved; the tin tray is newly refillable at €18 and the formulation is now vegan but the waxy base smells as warm, smooth and personal as ever.
Another cult favourite has returned better than ever after two years off – meet the all-new Salicylic Acid 2% Solution from The Ordinary, the Internet’s favourite affordable exfoliating hack for blemish-prone skin. It shifts your dead skin that causes blocked pores, clears skin over time and in this new version, it focuses most on your skin’s top layer, where it can work harder.
Trudon and Balmain have joined forces for a limited edition couture candle. Based on Trudon’s best-selling Ernesto candle, which is Balmain’s creative director’s Olivier Rousteing’s personal favourite and can be found in his office, studio, home and Balmain boutiqies, the Ernesto candle has an exclusive floral and leathery scent and comes in a luxurious gold foil and red lacquer handmade vessel.
To mark the Lunar New Year, MAC’s newest collection contains firecracker red lipsticks, gilded gold highlighter, brushes and an eyeshadow palette of sparkling metallics housed in peony print art-deco packaging to see you gleaming through the next year.
Charlotte Tilbury never misses but her latest launch might be her best yet. Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin foundation, in 30 shades, gives a real-skin finish with her signature added glow. It’s a medium, buildable coverage for extra concealing where needed that leaves skin looking like skin, plus a powerful blend of hydrating skincare ingredients means skin glows instantly but improves radiance over time. Find your exact colour match with her breakthrough Foundation Finder here.
Clear some room in your bathroom for another new favourite Cerave product – the gentle CeraVe Micellar Cleansing Water, €11.45. Like all Cerave, it’s developed with dermatologists and suitable for all skin types, including sensitive, and it will protect your skin’s barrier with essential ceramides while easily cleansing away make-up, dirt and pollution.
Great hair starts at the root, so don’t leave your scalp out of your haircare. The new R+Co Submarine should be used once a week in place of shampoo and massaged into the scalp to get rid of product build-up, stimulate hair growth, soothe the scalp, shift dead skin and for lighter, squeaky clean hair.
Seoulista have added two new treatment masks to their haircare line-up; Seoulista Curly Locks and Seoulista Blondi Locks, €12 each. Curly Locks strengthens and conditions curly hair with a blend of hydrating ingredients that rejuvenate curls in just 15 minutes, where in the same amount of time, Blondi Locks strengthens and adds shine to blonde hair, sealing in hydration.
Tom Ford’s new primer is designed to be your first step to faultless make-up every time, in a universal hue that leaves the skin lightly matte and smooth so foundation glides on. It’s sweat and humidity-resistant and for 12 hours it controls oil, shine and extends the quality of your make-up.

Alfaparf Milano has launched two new ranges to keep your hair colour salon fresh for longer – the Semi di Lino Blonde and Brunette lines, for refreshing colour, holding on to its shine and vibrancy and keeping unwanted tones at bay.
