Need we talk about the beauty boom? The industry is bigger than ever, with new brands forgoing the competitive analysis ready to blitz the market with new launches every week. Our skins have never been tested the way they are now, and while we’re hoping to get that flawless Hailey Beiber-skin, age like Anne Hathaway, and get our glam on like Sonam Kapoor, wouldn’t it be great if we just found exactly what our skin and make-up needs? Which is why we’ve decided to round up the best of the latest launches that ought to be added to your vanity bag immediately.
82°E Lotus Splash Face Wash
We’re here for everything antioxidant, and this launch from Deepika Padukone, with lotus extracts and bioflavonoids, is packed full of it. You can see the difference in your dark spots in a week of use, and the skin is definitely clearer after using it. Although, we do have to say that while it is for all skin types, it is better suited for normal to oily skin. Oh, and it’s free of sulphates, parabens, and phthalates!
Charlotte Tilbury Glow Toner
Now that we have the face wash, a toner worth following it up with is this acid-free one from our favourite Charlotte Tilbury. You have super peptide royalepigen P5 which helps with cell turnover and easy moisture absorption, exfolactive which aids natural exfoliaton, poretight and niacinamide for tighter pores, and sodium hyaluronate, the better cousin of hyaluronic acid.
Skeyndor Intense Hydrating Mask
Speaking of parched skin, there’s nothing better than ending your nighttime routine with a nice mask for your slugging needs, and this one by Skeyndor is worth every drop. With multiple active ingredients to do the job and more antioxidant action, one use and you wake up with happy, hydrated and smoother skin.
Kaashi Wellness Rosa - Lip Reviving Balm
Nothing feels the dry air like your lips, and while there are plenty of lip balms to choose from, this one from our favourite green beauty brand is on top of our list. Sure you have the traditional natural beeswax, but what makes this a nourishing bomb is its mix of apricot, rose, and geranium oil. If you are a lipstick lover, this one especially must be in your purse. And, of course it is free of artificial fillers, parabens, and toxins.
Manish Malhotra Precision Eyebrow Definer
Did someone say an Indian brand with great eyebrow make-up! A 1.5mm slip tip pencil with a brow defining spoolie on the other end, the definer offers natural-looking brows with a shea butter formula that stays put without drying out. We could have done with more shades, but there is little to complain with this brow pen.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Luminous Foundation and Magic Touch Concealer
If you’re thinking no-make-up make-up for your daily use, look no further than this duo. The lightweight, easy-to-blend formula offers an ultra-fresh, luminous finish with medium but buildable coverage. And, what really sold us on this, it does not dry you out and is free of flashback and oxidisation. We’ve already got these in our bags.
