Another month, another set of beauty products to add to our wishlist and potentially our shopping cart.

As the months get hotter, so are the launches in the beauty scene – especially in the makeup category. Brighter and wilder colours are presented in palettes, lipsticks and product packaging to echo the sunnier season. Skincare addicts, fret not, we’ve thrown in a few new (and limited-edition) products that caught our eye too.

Mark your calendars this month and get ready for a beauty haul!

Clé de Peau Legend Color Collection

It has been 10 years since Clé de Peau released their iconic #103 Legend Red.

The collection includes a Lipstick Cashmere, Lipstick Sparkles, Radiant Liquid Rouge Sparkles and Lip Liner Pencil, each featuring unique texture and opacity. Available at Clé de Peau counters from 15th July 2020.

Marc Jacobs Beauty At Lash’d Lengthening and Curling Mascara

Featuring wavy bristles and a tapered wand tip, the mascara is designed to evenly coat each lash from root to tip for instant elevation and definition. Its buildable vegan formula also features biotin peptide and provitamin B5 to help condition the lash as you apply. Available from 30th July 2020 at
