The season of love is here, and we’ve certainly fallen for the newest beauty launches that see our skin looking flawless and protected, our lips looking full and luscious, and our makeup game on point. Find out what you’ll be needing on your Valentine’s Day wish list this year, whether it be rose adorned eyeshadow palettes from Pat McGrath Labs, or the latest romantic scents from Tom Ford and By Killian—we’re sharing with you the best of February beauty, but get in quick—some of these beauties are only here for a limited time.
By Terry Hyaluronic Concealer
The newest addition to the hydration-locking By Terry family, the Hyaluronic Concealer is exactly what we need to brighten, smooth, and correct after one too many late-night Netflix marathons. Infused with moisture boosting hyaluronic acid and micro-stimulating horse chestnut, expect long-lasting wear from this lightweight vegan formula that’s currently available in six extensive shades.
Pat McGrath Labs Divine Rose II
It’s not Valentine’s season until Pat McGrath Labs have wooed us with a sublime bouquet of rose adorned makeup must-haves. Featuring a petal pink eyeshadow quad, a dazzling ten shade limited edition Mothership VIII palette, an exquisite gold highlighter, and not to mention the complementing matte lipstick and lip gloss shades to finish off the look—we’re blown away with the beauty.
By Kilian Love, Don’t Be Shy
Love isn’t the only thing blooming with this new limited-edition scent—honeysuckle and rose are at the forefront of this exhilarating fragrance before succumbing to warm amber and hints of marshmallow. Inspired by the early innocence of a tender romance, By Kilian has once more created a decadent narcotic perfume that we’ll be reaching for time and time again.
Kevyn Aucoin Indecent Mascara
Growing out our natural lashes has never been made easier with the newest Kevyn Aucoin addition—promising built-in healthy lash promoting ingredients, this mascara leaves lashes defined yet volumized and lusciously fuller with the help of a uniquely shaped cone bristle brush for added precision and impact.
Wishful Thirst Trap Juice Serum
With winter still in full swing and our own central heating wreaking havoc for our hydration levels, Wishful have come up with a solution that offers three different weights of hyaluronic acid for deeper absorption, along with a myriad of firming and replenishing peptides to soothe our weary skin barrier.
Jo Loves Pomelo Body Crème
A zesty reminder of our sun-soaked holidays well-spent on white sandy beaches sipping on refreshing sparkling water, and returning to hotel rooms that smell of crisp, fresh linen sheets. A thoroughly soothing at-home spa experience for the body that uses an infusion of nourishing shea butter and citrus sharp notes to take us back to those indulgent times away.
Milk Makeup Color Chalk
An exciting innovation for the world of makeup—an environmentally-friendly eyeshadow stick that can be additionally used as eyeliner or blusher, or whatever really. Housed in a peel-off wrapper, this clever formulation comes in fourteen varying shades along the colour wheel, ideal for all sorts of experimentation.
Dr. Jart+ Skincare Cicapair Tiger Grass Sleepair Intensive Mask
Protection is key when it comes to skincare, and Dr. Jart+ is taking that very seriously with a mask that aims to reduce the appearance of redness and skin irritation by repairing the delicate skin barrier through calming ingredients. This mask encourages the healing process associated with skin sensitivity and ensures a lightweight moisturizing antidote that we’re sure will be our newest skin saviour.
Byredo Prismic Palette
A shimmering colour explosion has landed in the form of the limited edition eighteen shade eyeshadow palette from Byredo—giving us every colour under the sun to mix and match no matter the mood. No nudes allowed though, but there is soft lilac, sunshine yellow, mint green, and peachy pink to keep our makeup energised.
Milk Makeup Electric Glossy Lip Plumper
Milk Makeup is spoiling us this month with another launch, but this time it’s for our pout. Formulated with zingy sichuan pepper for an instant plumping injection, this six shade series will have our lips feeling cushiony-soft with the help of added collagen and jojoba oil to keep them nourished and full.
