We like to have our fingers on the pulse, so this week’s Hot List is all about the very latest beauty trends.
There’s a peel-off lipstick (so much more flattering than it sounds) matte nail polish and a skincare take on the superfood trend.
More interested in fashion?
Channel holiday vibes with an ethical jewellery collection from South African brand Pichulik and a super cute summer bag from that looks like it’s straight out of the Little Mermaid.
WONDER BLADING Peel & Reveal Lip Color Kit
Lipstick and face masks just aren’t a good combination — but US bestseller Wonderskin has just arrived in the UK to fix your lipstick smudging for good.
It works like a peel-off tattoo you paint on to your lips, activate with a water spray, and then peel off to reveal colour that promises not to fade, smudge or transfer on to your face mask for hours.
Mavala Color-Matt Top Coat
Matte finish nails are on point right now — turn any of your existing shades in to matte ones with Mavala’s Color-Matt Top Coat.
Odile Paris Extreme C Complex Booster
If festival season has left your skin feeling fatigued, Odile Paris’s new Extreme C Complex Booster will deliver a supercharged dose of skin-brightening vitamin C to improve tone, rejuvenate and counter the summer’s ageing effects.
Kale + Green Tea Spinach Vitamins Superfood Cleanser
California’s Youth To The People puts superfoods into beauty products, harnessing the power of antioxidant-rich leafy greens.
The Kale + Green Tea Spinach Vitamins Superfood Cleanser sounds good enough to drink (but don’t!).
Pichulik rope and brass jewellery
We love Cape Town-based ethical brand Pichulik and its sculptural repurposed rope and brass jewellery.
Our favourite is the beige teal summer bracelet (£50).
Mabel Sheppard Shell bag
Looking for a vacay bag? Mabel Sheppard’s ecru Shell bag is functional but light enough for high days and hot nights.
Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Therapies
Philip Kingsley has released a limited edition of his cult Elasticizer — the deep-conditioning pre-shampoo hair treatment — scented with Egyptian jasmine and mandarin.
