Hi! Katie here with your monthly round-up of beauty hitting the shelves in April. Easter is around the corner and long weekends are on the way, so get set for cosy, comforting skincare to hydrate, deep hues and autumnal berry tones, as well as dreamy pastel hair care to upgrade your kit. Sit back and enjoy this month’s best new beauty with a handful of choccy eggs!
Sunthetic Platinum+ Style
If your hot tools are on the fritz, it’s great news for you. Ghd has unveiled their signature lineup in the dreamiest new colourway, inspired by pastel sunsets and golden hour mood lighting. The entire range features a different hue and gradient and expands from straighteners to heated brushes and hair dryers too.
Divine Skin Rose 001 The Essence
Pat Mcgrath Labs
This is some sort of magic, surely. Harness luminosity in a bottle with this creamy, silken essence which preps and transforms the skin for makeup or skincare application. It softens, smooths and plumps and has the most delicious, delicate rose scent without aggravating sensitive skin. Worth the price tag.
Sunlit Skin Powder Bronzers
Cream bronzers may have had their moment in the sun, but gawsh, are we stoked to see powders on the rise again! Buildable, even and universally flattering, this new(ly revamped) collection of maxxed up powders extends to blushes, highlights and powders too. It’s more of a ‘softly, softly’ approach—as opposed to the high-pigment liquids we’ve been seeing—but we’re here for a less intense application (v. on-trend for skinimalism).
Kombucha Facial Treatment Essence
Golden hour is upon us. Fresh’s much-loved facial essence is now new and improved, thanks to an updated formula infused with double-fermented kombucha advanced metabiotic for smooth, luminous skin. Use it before you your serums and moisturisation layer to supercharge your skincare.
Eye2Eye Inner Light Collection
Put grey, rainy days behind you and step into the light. Glimmering, bejewelled and oh-so shimmery, the latest additions to the Eye2Eye line-up adorn the eyes with a creamy, metallic finish which lasts all day without touch-ups. From soft, neutral tans, to cherry blossom pinks and deep purples, this extension has something for every eyeshadow lover.
Gentle Rice + Oat Cleansing Powder
Sensitive-faced girlies rejoice! Bid goodbye to tight, stretched skin after cleansing with this gentle water-activated cleanser, which washes away impurities and balances and refines the skin without stripping it of moisture or its natural barrier. Goodies like willow bark, colloidal oatmeal, rice bran & jojoba oil work harmoniously to deliver a radiant-looking complexion.
Barely There SPF50+ Facial Sun Cream
The third addition to AB (Adore Beauty) Lab’s SPF line-up, their newest formulation has UVA & UVB protection and is infused with Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin E. Worth investigating if you have dry skin, as it’s specifically formulated to help enhance skin hydration, support the natural moisture barrier and help defend against the harmful effects of free radical damage. And if you’re reading this, here’s your reminder to reapply your SPF!
Soft Pinch Tinted Lip Oil
Queen Selena is at it again! Her crown certainly hasn’t slipped—this new release is an absolute home run for anyone who loves a hydrating oil with a hint of colour. Comfortable, buildable and full of shine, these shades may also look familiar… just check if you’ve got a matching Soft Pinch Liquid Blush with the same name.
01 Taunt Fragrance 50ml
It’s time to hit refresh on your fragrance wardrobe, so may we introduce you to our new obsession: dedcool? A genderless, vegan, nontoxic and biodegradable line of personal and home fragrances oozes ‘Clean Girl’. Fragrance 01 ‘Taunt’ leaves crisp notes of Bergamot, fresh dew, floral and amber upon the skin and is our absolute fave so far.
Hyaluronic Intensive Treatment Booster
You’ve likely experienced one of Ella Bache’s signature facial treatments, but did you know you can experience their sensational skincare products at home? The more you know. Enjoy their latest hydration booster to quench your skin overnight, featuring a unique formula reinforced with 5 different molecular weights of Hyaluronic Acid.
Cloud Crushing Blurring Blush
Another addition to the powder product revolution, and she is not here to play. Pigmented yet blurring, it cushions the cheeks with a kiss of cloud-like colour, in shocking pinks and noticeable neutrals just in time for autumn. And a moment, please, for the utterly divine packaging.
Flawless Start Instant Perfecting Primer
Just when you thought filtered skin couldn’t get any more flawless, our girl Lizzy A hits us hard with a perfecting primer like no other. Infused with skin-loving ingredients that help control shine, maintain moisture and even out texture, it also has in-built time-release skin balancing technology which gives your makeup longevity and hold all day long.
Maracuja Juicy Glow Skin Foundation
It’s been a hot minute since we’ve seen a new release from Tarte, and it’s not what you’d expect. Pretty much the opposite of Shape Tape, this almost tint-like foundation is dewy, juicy and light-reflective, giving the ultimate glowing finish. It’s all thanks to ingredients like hyaluronic acid, maracuja and 10+ superfruits.
Telescopic Lift Mascara
3, 2, 1… anddd we have lash lift-off! If you haven’t already seen this all over Tiktok, it adds 5mm more visible length to your lashes thanks to the first ever ‘double hook’ brush. It also contains a vegan-friendly ceramide infused formula to separate and hold your lashes up for up to 36 hours. What?!
1 Hour Ultra Dark Express Tan
“How deep is your tan, is your tan now? I really need to knowwww…” Okay not quite the Bee Gees banger, but you can bet you’ll be party-ready, pronto, with Bali Body’s new sunless tanner which gets dark, quick. Gorgeous, glowing skin without the sticky has never been so easy.
