SPICING UP YOUR BEAUTY STASH
It’s time to spice up your beauty stash this week because Victoria Beckham has launched her female-founded, digitally-native, clean beauty brand. Victoria Beckham Beauty’s debut line, co-founded with Sarah Creal, puts the spotlight on eye products, offering Smoky Eye Bricks, Lid Lustres and Satin Kajal Liners in a variety of shades. Victoria and Sarah were committed to formulating all of their products with safety, transparency, education, and inclusivity at the forefront. In addition to the over 1,300 ingredients banned by the EU, the brand has avoided over 40 materials that are deemed harmful or have questionable or inconclusive safety data. The products are formulated without mineral oil, petroleum, phthalates, DEA/ TEA, formaldehydes, BHA/BHT or cyclic silicones. The brand is set to launch a lip collection next month, followed by a full line of new launches. The brand is now available at VictoriaBeckhamBeauty.com and in-store at Victoria Beckham. .

WOAH. Holiday collections are appearing, and we’ve been taken aback by the offering from this month’s Haul of Fame’s.

ZIT STICK UK DEBUT
Glossier’s Zit Stick launched last year in the US, being nothing but a tease to us Brits since it couldn’t be sold in the UK. Now, it’s finally arrived with a new formula, meaning we have to wait no longer to banish our zits the Glossier way. Zit Stick is a spot treatment that resembles a whiteboard marker – of course it does, it’s by Glossier! The US version contains 5% benzoyl peroxide, which cannot be attained by Brits over the counter, pushing Glossier to reformulate a benzoyl peroxide-free version just for us. We’ve never been happier. The new formulation contains 2% salicylic acid, a hero ingredient that works to exfoliate the skin, in addition totea tree oil and capryloyl salicylic acid.
