7 Makeup releases we can’t get enough of this month

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder – Glow

If Laura Mercier’s iconic loose setting powder has always been your HG, add this new upgraded version to your beauty bag, stat. The new Translucent Loose Setting Powder – Glow will give your skin a (you guessed it) radiant glow and 12-hour luminous finish. Finely-milled powder controls the oil and shine while giving your skin a soft focus effect that isn’t too cakey. Wear it alone or set over your go-to foundation—this is definitely a new cult favourite if you’re all about the dewy finish.


Nars Climax Mascara

The biggest climax of the year for Nars is encompassed in this edgy red tube right here—the Nars Climax Mascara, aptly named for the wonders it promises to deliver to your lashes. Everything about this is made to deliver maximum impact, from the creamy formula that lifts and builds without clumping, to the ribbed bristles that coat each lash easily. Honestly, if the super cool red packaging of this mascara doesn’t blow you away, the formula might just do the trick.


Benefit Cosmetics Brow Contour Pro

You’ve heard of multitasking skincare but Benefit Cosmetics is upping the ante with a 4-in-1 (yes, four!) contour pencil to give you bangin’ brows in no time. It has a lighter brow shade, deeper brow shade, edge definer and arch highlighter to give you beautifully defined arches easily. All you have to do is click and contour—the blendable formula is waterproof and longwearing so you don’t have to worry about touch-ups.


Shu Uemura Matte Supreme

Nothing screams look-at-me more than a statement-making lip colour, and Shu Uemura has just that—the new Matte Supreme lip colour that offer long-lasting colour with a matte finish and the lightweight comfort of ink. Watch out for the unique ergonomic lip applicator that fits the contour of the lips perfectly to coat it with pigmented colour.


Sisley Stylo Lumière

This all-in-one pen is a hybrid that will conceal imperfections and smoothen fine lines on your skin on-the-go. The new Stylo Lumière highlighter from Sisley has a formula imbued with skin-saving active ingredients including acai extracts and golden apple extracts for some skincare action to perk up dull, fatigued skin.

Fenty Beauty Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil


Rihanna has got you covered when it comes to shining bright like a diamond. Aptly named Diamond Bomb All-Over Diamond Veil, this new highlighter has a jelly-powder formula that is cool to touch yet melts onto the skin like butter. Bring on the glitz from head-to-toe for a glamorous night out—you can use this as a highlighter on your favourite features, whether your cheekbones or your collarbone.


Three Alchemist-Twist For Eyes

Liquid eyeshadows are all the rage right now for good reason: its texture allows for a myriad of ways you can experiment with. Three’s new eyeshadows under its AW18 collection leave a wash of pearlized sparkle over the lids, adding a stardust-like effect to its matte texture. Blend it with your finger or an eyeshadow brush and watch it transform into a velvety finish.
