Need it Now


From countless hashtags and ‘need-it-now’ buzzwords to must-try trends — including the ones that you’re sceptical about — it often takes a lot to stop the scroll of any beauty devotee. That’s where we come in with hot-off-press intel (or For You Page, rather) on an incredible line-up of skin-blurring {powders}, pore-refining {serums} and more that have the power to do just that!

Treat your skin to a buffet with {Weleda}’s Skin Food and tuck into its all-rich formula that’s like an oasis for even the driest of textures. Topping the social media charts with its barrier-boosting blend of lanolin, beeswax and glycerin, alongside sweet almond and sunflower oils, this dream cream lays the pore-fect base for your make up routine. Reviving your once-supple complexion, this undisputed hero hits the reset button on dry, stressed out skin by warding off flakiness and unwanted texture. Oh, and psssst — word in the beautysphere streets is that this plant-powered moisturiser has earned a spot in Rihanna’s regime!

Another cult-favourite that’s been adored by the algorithm in recent months is {Glow Recipe}’s Watermelon Glow Niacinamide Dew Drops. Needing no introduction whatsoever and the secret to the SoKo radiance, this skin care highlighter knows no bounds. Arguably one of the most talked about serums of 2022, this iridescent formula can be mixed with your liquid foundation or tinted moisturiser to deliver a generous lit-from-within glow. Delivering a surge of hydration and skin-loving vitamins in just one pump, this pearlescent serum sits comfortably over and under make up. The question is: what can’t this serum do?

If you believe in the magic then prepare to be spellbound by the illuminating power of {Charlotte Tilbury}’s Airbrush Brightening Flawless Finish. Casting a flashback-free veil over your make up, this skin-smoothing powder has been saddled with hashtag must try with good reason. Wondering what’s so great about this and why it’s got the beauty fanatics going crazy? Well, this multi-tasking powder is fused with collagen amino acids, hydrating hyaluronic acid and golden vitamin C! When lightly dusted over your highlighted zones (think: under eyes, forehead, nose and chin), this ethereal formula unlocks pore-blurring magic. Ta-da…

Soaring high on our social media feed and painting the town with its intense look-at-me colour is {NARS} Powermatte Lipstick. Donning your pout with up to 10 hours of wear, this velvety smooth lipstick saturates your pout with dense colour that glides effortlessly with a smooth finish. Is ‘Dragon Girl’ calling your name or are you ‘Too Hot to Hold’? Pick your pigment this winter and prepare to be noticed.
