The 10 best new summer beauty buys

The 10 best new summer beauty buys
These are the products that have revolutionised our summer beauty regimes, from fun cosmetics to serious skin saviours…

Chrome Paint Shadow Pot in metallic rose gold Tarte, £19

This versatile pot is a must for any shimmer-lovers. With gold undertones and a subtle pink hue, it adds a summery glow to any look and the creamy texture of the loose pigment means it will hold for hours.
Dab onto your eyes, use as a highlighter or as a body shimmer—the choice is yours.

Retinol Rescue Overnight Cream Clark's Botanicals, £85

With a smell faintly resembling a delicate vanilla custard, this incredibly luxurious overnight cream is a treat to use. 
Leaving the face feeling more supple and moisturised, this anti-ageing treatment offers the appearance of a good night's sleep even if you were sipping on Rosé well into the early hours. 

H2O Gloss in the shade Bahamas Tarte, £17

An iridescent gloss that will leave your lips looking plump and juicy. This clear lip shine has subtle hints of iridescent shimmer making it stand out from other clear glosses—the slight hint of brown pigment makes it perfect for warmer skin-tones.
Although this product is “packed with ocean-sourced nutrients” it is somewhat sticky, so it’s probably best to skip H2O gloss on a windy day.

The Body Oil Neighbourhood Botanicals, £31

You can feel this thick and silky body oil doing your skin good from the second you apply it. With a calming, intentionally gender-neutral citrus scent, this oil left our skin feeling soft and freshly moisturised for a full 24 hours.  
Best of all the product is cruelty-free and 100 per cent natural, created with no silicones and completely nut-free oils. 

Timeless Smoothing Primer Tarte, £33

Never underestimate the power of a good primer! And if you’re after a new one this summer, Tarte’s limited-edition, timeless smoothing primer is the one to go for.
Packed with vitamins C and E and green bean extract, it evens out and brightens your skin as well as fills fine lines and pores, transforming your face into a pristine canvas for your make up.

Colour Splash Hydrating Lipstick Tarte, £20

This long-lasting, full-coverage lipstick comes in 24 gorgeous, creamy colours (including a number of nudes that are simply to die for!) that are bright and fun but never overpowering, so it’s perfect for everyday use.
Plus, the hydrating formula ensures that your lips don’t go dry during the hot summer days .

Life's a Beach Bronzer W7, £7.95

Despite its humble packaging, this budget bronzer delivers the results of a far more expensive brand.
The matte powder provides a natural-looking glow, so you look like you've just returned from long, hot summer holiday, even if you actually spent the week camping in rainy Wales. 

Body Yogurt The Body Shop, £8.50

Apply this delicious-smelling body yogurt straight from the shower for a cooling hit of moisture that will keep you smelling sweet throughout the day. 
On hotter days, it's also great for cooling the skin, and the range of scents is fantastic. Look out for the limited edition Banana version, launching in July. 

Signature Fragrance LK Bennett, £35

A favourite brand with the royal family, L.K. Bennett are launching their first ever fragrance this summer, and like the brand itself, it's nothing but class. 
With top notes of citrus, pepper, and rhubarb, complemented by heart notes of rose, jasmine and deepened by base notes of warm woods and amber, it's a luxurious scent perfect for those with a classic sense of style. 

VITAL C hydrating overnight masque £65, IMAGE Skincare

However much you love the summer months, exposure to the sun, increased sweating and air conditioning can all leave your complexion feeling a little lifeless.
This overnight masque from IMAGE skincare is a great antidote. Apply it generously before bed and wake up to more hydrated, revitalised skin.
