Tomorrow marks the start of September, which means it’s also the very first day of spring (yay)! Admittedly, I can
always find a way to justify a new beauty buy, but there’s no better reason than a spring overhaul. With this in mind, here are the new products we can’t wait to snap up this coming month. Whip out your wish lists, ladies – they’re about to get a LOT longer… 1. Designer Brands Contour Kit
Get ready to flaunt higher cheekbones and/or a slimmer nose and chin! A favourite with bh’s Sam,
this clever palette is made up of three blendable shades (white, brown and pale pink) to help you to contour to perfection. Your skin will love the nourishing formula, containing aloe vera extract and vitamins A, C and E. 2. Michael Kors Collection Gold
Signifying the next chapter of the Michael Kors Collection fragrances, these distinctive scents are the epitome of glam. You’ll have a hard time chosing between the sparkling
White Luminous Gold, the feminine 24K Brilliant Gold and the hypnotic Rose Radiant Gold. 3. INIKA Vegan Lipstick
Formulated with certified organic and vegan ingredients,
this nourishing lipstick contains argan, avocado and jojoba seed oils for long-lasting wear, as well as moisturising vitamin E and shea butter. Choose from eight sexy shades. 4. PC4MEN Lip Balm SPF 50
One for the boys: This convenient,
mess-free balm is a chapped lip lifesaver. It’s also fragrance and flavour-free, making it perfect for guys who shun the beauty bells and whistles. 5. AERIN Rose de Grasse
A must-have for lovers of rose scents, the first perfume from AERIN’s Premier Collection features a fusion of roses, including the hundred-petalled Rose Centifolia. Just like the scent, the porcelain-like packaging is the height of luxe.

6. Eminence Balancing Masque Duo
Struggling with combination skin? This skincare duo covers both bases with the Charcoal T-Zone Purifier (to clarify, revitalise and refine your nose and forehead) and the Pomelo Cheek Treatment (to restore much-needed moisture where you need it most).

Getting the perfect brow shape can be tricky, but
this reusable brow template will make the process a lot easier. Each pack contains four arch shapes to choose from, so you’ll end up with the brows that suit you best. 8. Paula’s Choice Resist 1% Retinol Booster
Featuring a kick-ass blend of retinol and age-fighting ingredients, this anti-ageing find stimulates collagen production, helps to fade brown spots and repairs sun damage. It can also be used as a lightweight acne treatment if you need it.
9. Palmolive Men’s Deep Clean Shower Gel
Engineered specifically for men’s skin needs,
this invigorating body wash contains an odour modifying complex to deliver all day freshness. Spearmint oil and exfoliating fruit seeds help remove dirt and grime (without drying out the skin). 10. Natio Tinted Moisturiser SPF50+
If you’re a sucker for a beauty shortcut, you’ll
adore this tinted moisturiser, which works to hydrate, protect and even out your skin tone in one smooth step. We love its high SPF factor. 11. Calvin Klein euphoria essence
CK is welcoming a new fragrance to the fold. Formulated for women and men, it’s an addictive oriental scent composed of exotic fruits and seductive florals. It’s also limited edition. Need we say more?

12. Laura Mercier Candleglow Luminizing Palette
Looking a bit pasty post-winter? Get your hands on this palette. With two highlighting powders and four illuminating eye colours, it’ll capture, diffuse ad soften the way light reflects on your skin, giving you a great glow.

We’re already dry shampoo devotees, but
this limited-edition offering from Batiste is too good to pass up. Capturing the essence of Ella Henderson’s celebrity style, it has top notes of vanilla, middle notes of coconut and base notes of sandalwood, cedarwood and musk. 14. Crabtree & Evelyn Pomegranate Argan & Grapeseed Body Mist
For a quick skin refresher, go straight to
Crabtree & Evelyn’s crisp new offering, inspired by the fruits of the Mediterranean and oils of Morocco. We bet you’ll love the blend of tart pomegranate, citrus and fresh fig leaves. 15. Elegant Touch House of Holland Glitterbug
We’re all for a cool nail collab, and
these glitzy press-on nails are fab for freshening up a tired mani. The pack includes 24 nails in 10 different sizes, as well as nail glue and a nail file – so, pretty much everything you need to nail your nail game.
