1.Urban Decay Stay Naked FoundationBest known for their palettes and cool collaborations, Urban Decay have released a new foundation to add to their already iconic makeup range. The Stay Naked Foundation feels like you're wearing nothing on your skin, but gives incredible, buildable coverage for a flawless complexion. Drying-down matte, it leaves your skin oil-free but with a gorgeously natural glow. The best part? It lasts for 24 hours so is perfect for the warmer, summer months when makeup slides off through the midday heat. Vegan-friendly, it's set to be this summer's hottest foundation launch.
2.Illamasqua Expressionist Artistry PaletteThe Illamasqua Expressionist Artistry Palette is the makeup must-have of summer 2019. Bright colours in a mix of finishes (matte and shimmer) will help you create a multitude of gorgeous looks to celebrate the warmer weather. Illamasqua are well-known for their incredibly high-quality products, so expect impeccable colour-payoff from the pigments without fall-out or fading during the day. With 12 shades included in the palette, you can choose to express your creativity how you wish. Want to stay nude? Opt for UNBLEACHED AND S-CREAM. Prefer something a little more Riviera-inspired? Go for bold with shades DIET CERULEAN and BLUE PERIOD.
3.GLAMGLOW Moisturetrip MoisturiserRich in 2019's hottest skincare ingredient, CBD oil, GLAMGLOW's Moisturetrip Moisturiser is a super treat for parched, summer skin. Working to reduce redness and restore lost hydration, the lightweight moisturiser not only contains soothing CBD oil, but also contains Chaga mushrooms to reduce irritation, alongside omegas' 3 and 6 to keep the skin plumped-up thanks to the essential fatty acids. The best part? It shields against blue-light pollution to keep your skin smooth and glowing. Add to basket straight away.
4.Too Faced Damn Girl! 24-Hour MascaraWant gorgeously fluffy lashes with minimal effort? Treat yourself to Too Faced's new Damn Girl! 24-Hour Mascara. Formulated with a unique blend of whipped melting waxes, the mascara delivers instant lift, volume and curl for the perfect set of lashes. Cruelty-free, the mascara is also free from gluten and parabens, so great if you suffer with any skin sensitivities.
5.Illamasqua Antimatter Lipstick in SmoulderReady to make your pout pop this summer? Opt for Illamasqua's new Antimatter Lipstick in Smoulder for gorgeous results. The semi-matte formula is super long-lasting without drying your lips. Instead, it leaves them beautifully conditioned and coloured. Pair with the Illamasqua Expressionist Artistry Palette for a gorgeously bright summer look.
6.ghd Gold Styler Ink on Pink CollectionLast month, we attended ghd's exclusive event to launch their Ink on Pink collection and it was incredible to see the work the brand do to support breast cancer charities. The Gold Styler itself is penned with a unique illustration designed by acclaimed tattoo artist David Allen. With a pale pink background, this is one of the prettiest stylers we have ever seen from the brand, and with the same amazing and high-tech functionalities as the original Gold Styler, it's the perfect investment for your hair. It heats up in just 25 seconds and helps to create smooth, frizz-free hair or gorgeously bouncy curls depending on how you use it.
7.Kérastase Soothing ScrubNew from Kérastase are their range of hair scrubs, designed to rid the hair of impurities and leave locks feeling clean and revitalised. The Soothing Scrub is our favourite as it not only helps to deep cleanse the scalp, but also combats elements of dryness such as flaking and dandruff. The lightweight gel texture helps to unclog congested follicles and remove product build-up, to leave you with gorgeously light and bouncy locks. Plus, it has an invigorating, refreshing scent that lifts your mood during your morning shower.

10.Biolage All-in-One Coconut Infusion SprayMissing the warm, summer weather? Add a little tropical twist to your haircare routine with the Biolage All-in-One Coconut Infusion Spray. The lightweight mist is suitable for all hair types, and helps to banish frizz, detangle, hydrate and shield against styling damage, all while adding a gorgeous scent to the hair. It won't weigh your hair down or cause it to become greasy - instead it adds a lovely shine and helps to restore health and battle split ends. Plus, it's vegan!
11.Bondi Sands Aero Aerated Tanning FoamWant a gorgeous golden tan with minimal drying time? Try the new Aero Aerated Tanning Foam from Bondi Sands. The whipped mousse-like texture melts into the skin instantly and dries-down instantaneously to leave the skin with a light glow. It develops over 6-8 hours and lasts for up to 7 days thanks to its super-hydrating and coconut-infused formula.
12.Estée Lauder Double Wear Instant Fix ConcealerBan dark circles and signs of fatigue with the new Double Wear Instant Fix Concealer from Estée Lauder. The concealer is unique in that it has a dual-approach - one end of the wand is infused with a serum for long-lasting hydration (and to minimise flaking), while the other end has a waterproof, 24-hour concealer formula. Drying down to a matte finish, it doesn't crease or budge for a flawless-looking complexion all day (and night).
13.Estée Lauder Advanced Repair Intense Reset ConcentratePerfect for stressed-out and tired skin, the new Advanced Repair Intense Reset Concentrate is the latest addition to Estée Lauder's iconic ANR line-up. The serum helps to calm irritation and completely revitalise the complexion for a smoother, brightened and more clarified appearance. We love to use this once or twice a week in our night-time skincare routines, or if we've been a little under the weather, as it helps to transform dulling skin.
14.REN Non-Drying Spot TreatmentWant a natural spot treatment without ingredients that dry out the skin and cause irritation? You will love REN's new Spot Treatment, which is part of their ClearCalm range designed for reactive skin types. Infused with willow bark, thyme and pine, the treatment can be worn either on bare skin or under makeup and is completely undetectable on the skin. Chlorella extract is also included in the ingredient line-up to help balance out the skin's natural microbiome and reduce the bacteria that cause intense breakouts.
