Now that we’re finally getting out and about, being able to visit restaurants, go back to work, and just be (for the most part), it feels like our makeup bags need a bit of an update too. It’s great having go-to products to reach to again and again, but dare I say, it can get a little *whispers* boring.

So, do you fancy injecting a bit of newness into your makeup bag? Here are our top picks, when it comes to the latest beauty launches in everything from skincare and perfume to tan and foundation.

KVD Vegan Beauty Shake Primer

Ole Henriksen’s Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum

If you haven’t tried Ole Henriksen products just yet, chances are you’ve heard about their vitamin C range. Their Banana Bright eye cream is loved by beauty fanatics everywhere, and now Ole Henriksen has taken things up a notch with the launch of the Vitamin C Serum.

This innovative Vitamin C serum is packed with powerhouse ingredients for age-defying all-day hydration. An advanced cocktail of 20% acid blend of 15% Vitamin C (Ole’s highest concentration for daily use) and 5% skin-smoothing PHAs, and hydration- boosting hyaluronic acid create the ultimate multi-acid serum. Your skin will be only stunning. Available now at Boots, for €69.

Eve Lom Rescue Peel Pads

When it comes to luxurious skincare, Eve Lom knows exactly what the suss is. Their new Rescue Peel Pads instantly exfoliate and re-surface with a quick and easy application for multi-level benefits. Their unique weave of 100% biodegradable pads have a combination of AHA, PHA, and BHA acids help shed built-up layers of dead skin cells for a smoother and brighter complexion.

Your complexion is left feeling hydrated, soothed, and non-stripped from a mixture of Vitamin B3, Marshmallow, a perennial flower providing a soothing, calming effect on the skin, and bacterial fermentation, helping to increase hydration levels over time. Available now, for €70 at SpaceNK.

Ole Henriksen Cold Plunge Pore Mask

Okay, I’ll admit, this isn’t brand new. But I’ve decided to give this product an honourable mention simply because I’ve never tried a face mask like it. Inspired by the “cold plunge” part of a Scandinavian sauna cycle, this cooling clay mask detoxifies, controls oil and reduces the look of pores. The formula contains antioxidant-rich botanicals that have adapted to thrive in extreme cold to soothe, mattify and refine pores. Then, once you add water, the mask turns into a foaming lather, that sweeps away excess oil and impurities. Simply stunning, *chef’s kiss*.  Also, the colour is amazing, you feel extremely boujie when wearing this. Which always helps, you know? Check it out at Boots, right here.
