SPARKLE OUT LOUD
We love a flamboyant makeup collection to see in Summer, and Urban Decay has unveiled just that with its new Heavy Metal Glitter collection. Whether you’re in the mood for a light or heavy dose of sparkle, Urban Decay has got you covered with a range of glittery eye looks ready for the season ahead. The range includes: Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in eight new shades; Heavy Metal Glitter Gel, a vibrant, hyper-sparkly, and buildable formula for eyes, body, and face; four new shades of the award-winning 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil; and Hi-Fi Ultra Cushion Lipgloss, which is poppin’ in four new shades.
EMBRACE THE ORDINARY
The Ordinary, our go-to brand for affordable core active ingredients, has revealed its latest addition to the range. The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Masque has been infused with charcoal and clays to enhance the appearance of smoothness and clarity to leave skin refreshed. Salicylic acid is a BHA that targets the removal of dead skin cells on the surface of oily and blemish-prone skin, ultimately revealing the radiant skin beneath. The product will be available from 29 May.
PROTECT THE REEF
Green People has found a solution for the known damage that some sun creams can cause to coral reefs and marine environments. The new eco-friendly and reef-safe suncare range contains a synergistic blend of antioxidant-rich plants, designed to support the skin’s natural immune system while counteracting free-radical damage and protecting living skin cells. Harnessing more than 84% certified organic ingredients, the brand has chosen to avoid chemicals that can cause harm to the marine environment, and instead, have chosen a blend of non-toxic filters that guarantee UVA and UVB protection while being ocean-safe. Products in the range include: Scent Free Sun Lotion SPF 30, Sun Lotion SPF 15 with Natural Tan Accelerator, Organic Children Scent Free Sun Lotion SPF 30, Scent Free Facial Sun Cream SPF 30 and Holiday Sun Starter Pack.
Sleek MakeUP has unveiled a brand-new range of lipsticks that we just can’t get enough of. With a shade for every outfit or occasion, the new #LIPDOSE semi-matte lipsticks promise high impact colour across 12 creamy shades. We’ve put them to the test and we can confirm that you can achieve precise application with a bold full coverage finish in just ONE CLICK.
