The most exciting makeup launches this month, from Pat McGrath's eyeshadow palette to Fenty Beauty's lip balms
Full face on
While Becca Cosmetics' Zero Foundation works more as a blurring primer than an actual foundation, the No Pigment Glass Highlighter truly does what its name suggests. I like to use it as a multi-use gloss, as the formula doesn't leave sticky streaks allover—think 'the sunlight hitting all the right angles' instead of 'damn, I forgot to set my face' kind of finish.
Tip: Pat on cream blush before applying this highlighter for a dewy, sun-kissed flush.

It's no secret that I'm a fan of Chanel's Les Beiges line (the highlighting fluid was my recent favourite), and this season, the brand ups the ante with a new long-wearing foundation that's perfect for dry skin. Available in nine shades here, the Healthy Glow Foundation Hydration and Longwear has plant-based oils and polymers for a natural, satin finish—buildable and perfect for that no-makeup makeup look.

What feels like lip balm, has the pigment of a non-goopy lip gloss, and leaves lips super moisturised? No prizes for guessing the lip balm of the month. The Pro Kiss’r Luscious Lip Balm comes with a thick doe-foot applicator that imparts a generous amount of product per swipe. Plus, it's made with shea and mango seed butters, but isn't greasy or sticky so you don't have to worry about it transferring to your face mask.

Looking for a lip colour that absolutely will not budge under your face mask? Try MAC Cosmetics' latest liquid lipsticks that come in a mousse-like texture and highly-pigmented finish. Expect a good 10 hours of hydration (tried and tested!) and a soft-focus effect on the lips.
Tip: The applicator isn't the most nifty if you don't have a prominent Cupid's bow—try applying it in the middle of your lips and pursing them together for a diffused finish.

Ever heard of found-cealer? Make Up For Ever is revolutionising multi-use face products with the Matte Velvet Skin Concealer that's able to conceal, correct and even contour your face. The formula promises 24-hour wear and a breathable finish—but the best part is that it comes in an inclusive 20 shades so you don't have to search high and low for the right shade.

Call me lazy but I love me a good all-in-one colour stick that's great for the lips, cheeks and even eyes (we actually tried this out), and Nudestix is serving just that with new shade extensions for its Nudies Matte range. Inspired by sun-drenched skin and the golden hour glow, the colours are stunning to boot, while the formulas are easily blendable. My favourite is Salty Siren, a rosy coral that does wonders for the overall complexion.

This highly-lauded palette from Pat McGrath Labs has finally arrived on our shores and there are a plethora of reasons why you should try it out (yes, despite the price tag). I mean, just look at the shades—from petal-soft pink and peach to champagne-pink and burgundy to gilded golds and bronze. If you need any more coaxing, just score this palette for the Vr Sextraterrestrial shade, a duochrome with a metallic finish that's bound to turn heads.
