The Most Exciting August Beauty Launches We Can't Wait To Try
#1: Dior Rouge Blush, $73
With a total of 27 different shades in three finishes (matte, satin and shimmer), each is designed to complement a shade of its Rouge Dior. While it may look like a powder blusher, it actually has a creamy texture that melts onto the skin and blends effortlessly for a fuss-free application.
#2: Chanel Le Lift Creme, $226
The brand’s popular anti-ageing cream now comes with an updated formula that uses alfalfa botanical concentrate, which works on both the epidermis and dermis layer of our skin to plump, soften the look of fine lines and boost collagen production.
There are a total of three lip palettes (this has all purple shades while the other two boasts red and nudes colours) and features a creamy formula that glides on easily and gives great colour payoff with just one swipe. It reportedly does not bleed or feather either.
We love the brand’s Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation, so when it came out with a concealer version of it, we can’t help but add it to this list. With a formula that features a high pigment concentration, this easily covers dark circles, age spots, blotches and scars without settling into fine lines and gives a natural matte finish.
#5: Urban Decay Lo-Fi Lip Mousse, $33
This provides high-impact colour with a velvety soft matte finish that feels weightless on your puckers and does not dry it out. It is also super pigmented and blendable. What else we love about it: it’s slim and sleek packaging, plus an applicator inside (I personally love using it with my fingers).
#6: Cle de Peau Beaute Radiant Corrector for Eyes, $95
This concealer not only provides colour-correcting coverage but is also packed with skin-loving ingredients to nourish the skin around your peepers. With its light-reflecting and hydrating properties, this neutralises imperfections and camouflages shadows around the eyes without settling into fine lines.
#7: Kate Somerville Dermal Quench Wrinkle Warrior, $143, Sephora
This visibly plumps and hydrates skin to soften the look of deep wrinkles and fine lines. It has a lightweight texture that absorbs quickly into the skin.
#8: First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Anti-Breakout Pads with White Clay, $46, Sephora
These pads have been soaked in a potent formula that contains two per cent salicylic acid, kaolin clay, tea tree oil and soothing plant extracts to treat acne, prevent breakouts, exfoliate and minimise the appearance of enlarged pores.
#9: Narciso Eau De Parfum Rouge, $156
This is made with Bulgarian rose and iris, which is then mixed with vivid amber woody notes like tonka, vetiver, black and white cedar for a slightly sweet and seductive scent.
#10: Herbivore Jasmine Green Tea Toner, $59, Sephora
The star ingredient in this toner is organic Jasmine water, which helps to refresh, heal, and protect combination, oily, and blemish-prone complexions. Witch hazel and aloe vera soothes irritated skin while white willow bark and ginger root aids in reducing redness, inflammation, clogged or enlarged pores, acne and excess oil production.
