I love the aesthetics of a beauty product. While the product itself is of course the most important thing, buying something that looks beautiful as well is increasingly appealing in the age of Instagram. Having something bright and colourful on your bedside table or vanity unit also cheers you up, and makes you feel pumped for the summer months. This week's five new beauty launches are all super bright, super summery, and super colourful, just how I like them.
Kicking off with a new range of candles, one of my favourite brands Boy Smells has fully embraced the appeal of Instagrammable packaging with three new offerings, all in bright glass jars and pretty pastel labels.
Then there's the array of new makeup, including an amazing high street palette you can buy at Superdrug, that boasts not six, not twelve, but EIGHTEEN amazingly pigmented bright eyeshadow shades. And at under £10, you don't have to fear taking it on holiday with you in your suitcase. If it's single eyeshadows you're after, I recommend the new loose pigments from Anastasia Beverly Hills, which are also super vibrant and beautiful.
And even sun care is bright and bold this season, housed in eye catching yellow packaging, and cleaner and safer for the environment than ever. Keep reading to see what I mean, and to learn more about this week's best new beauty launches.
Traditional chemical sunscreens have been damaging marine life, and the delicate eco-system of our oceans for years, and we're only just waking up to it now. This summer (and beyond) opt for a mineral sunscreen, which is chemical free and reef safe. The new Caudalie range is safe for the oceans, smells amazing, and offers a wide level of UVA and UVB protection.
