New Beauty Products: with June comes the summer months, mid-year escapes to fabulous locales, and yes – a number of exciting new beauty products to obsess over. Here are some of our new faves!
#1 YSL Le Cushion Encre De Peau
YSL joins the cushion revolution with their latest offering Le Cushion Encre De Peau, a liquid foundation in a cushion compact. Known for its bestselling Touche Eclat foundation, YSL fans can expect the same high quality texture and coverage with this compact. Matte but fresh, lightweight with long lasting coverage, the cushion comes with a pick-up pillow which you can use to dab the product onto your skin. The formula is buildable, depending on whether you want skin to peek through, or deeper coverage. #BeACushionista

#2 Bobbi Brown Follow The Sun Glow Stick
Bobbi Brown’s all-new Follow The Sun Collection is inspired by sun-soaked destinations: Antigua, Maui, and Santa Barbara, and includes a stick highlighter, liquid eye colour and juicy lip colours.
We’re excited about the Glow Stick. Because it’s a highlighter in a stick, you can be confident about on-the-go, no-mirror application. Containing a sheer, emollient-rich formula, the stick glides on easy and blends seamlessly for a natural, radiant glow. The Glow Stick comes in 8 different shades including 2 limited edition tones. Swipe on cheekbones, nose, forehead and chin—anywhere sun naturally hits the face—and use fingers to blend. Effectively creates the illusion of light rays bouncing off smooth skin.
Available at all Bobbi Brown standalone stores in June.

#4 La Mer Blanc de la Mer Brilliance White Mask
If you need to recover from too much sun at a beach holiday, have the Blanc de la Mer Brilliance White Mask on standby.
The two-step formula attacks stubborn discolouration, uneven skin tones, and fine lines and wrinkles, while providing a hydrating boost and smoother textures.
The first step involves soothing the skin with the Brilliance White Soothing Primer, calming the look of skin. The delicate liquid primer contains a concentrated version of La Mer’s signature Miracle Broth – the ultimate anti-irritant and Calming Ferment – a curated blend of algae, vitamins and nutrients designed to prepare the skin for the next step.
The Brilliance White Gel Cream then delivers concentrated brightening, hydrating and anti-aging activity in a rich and luxurious gel texture. Containing the Vital Brilliance Ferment – a potent blend of sea-sourced actives and marine peptides – it helps diminish the look of discolouration and dullness, deeply hydrating and softening lines and wrinkles. Miracle Broth delivers radiance and healing hydration while Lime Tea Concentrate helps protect skin against environmental aggressors and future damage. After allowing the gel to infuse for 8 minutes, La Mer fans can expect a radiant, healthy glow.
Available at all La Mer counters.
