Refresh Your Make Up Menu With The Hottest New Arrivals


Nothing causes a buzz in the Cult Beauty office quite like a slew of {new arrivals} — and this batch of spring {make up} newcomers are *chef’s kiss*. Just in time for sunnier days, these new make up launches are here to ace your base with everything from featherweight {foundation} formulas to travel-proof rollerball {highlighter}. Get ready to spring clean your make up bag — trust us, you’ll want to make some space. These are eight of the freshest drops you  need to know about.

From the name-to-know in wholesome glow, Saie, comes the {Glowy Superskin Foundation}. Putting your skin first, this hardworking base is formulated with 85% skin care ingredients (think: hyaluronic acid, polyglutamic acid, squalane, rice bran peptides…*phew*) that brighten skin over time for a radiant complexion even on no-make up days. Oh, and about that coverage. Medium, buildable and in 36 skin-true shades, this next-gen foundation delivers an even, soft focus finish and enviable outdoors-y radiance.

Meet your latest blush crush. With velvety fluffiness, Too Faced {Cloud Crush Blush} blends seamlessly for a vibrant pop of colour and diffused second-skin finish. Suitable for even sensitive skin, these colourful compacts are made with a flower extract blend and an all-vegan line up of ingredients. Lightly scented with a tropical beach-esque scent and in six playful hues, these blurring blushes are a guaranteed mood-booster that you’ll want in every shade.

For days when you want lighter make up and lighter under eyes, enter Huda Beauty‘s {GloWish Bright Light Sheer Concealer}. Creating a believable skin-like finish that blends seamlessly with bare skin, this featherweight concealer illuminates dark circles in a flash. Blueberry seed oil (sourced from food industry byproducts), caffeine, vitamin E, prickly pear cactus extract and sodium hyaluronate feed delicate skin with firming hydration to keep under eyes looking crease-free and refreshed. Boasting all-day wear in 15 shades, this illuminating concealer cheats that ‘I got 8 hours sleep’ look in (approximately!) 8 seconds.

You love the Tinted Moisturiser, now meet the newest member of the iconic Laura Mercier Tinted range. {Tinted Moisturiser Bronzer} grants instant sun kissed warmth — even when the sun’s not shining. In six flattering shades, this year-round glow booster delivers depth and dimension without the sticky feeling or orange hue sometimes associated with cream textures. The lotion-like fluid feels weightless on the skin and hydrates skin for up to 12 hours for seriously comfortable wear. Buildable and blendable for mistake-proof application, you might never go back to basic bronzing powders.

The newest launch from Jamie Genevieve’s eponymous brand, VIEVE {Soul Shadows} are the eyeshadow compacts you’ll want in your make up bag this spring and summer. In four curated colour edits to take you from day to night, these quads feature the supremely blendable and pigmented eyeshadow formulas VIEVE are famous for — in seriously chic packaging. In buttery mattes and smouldering shimmers, expect intense colour payoff in a single sweep.

Make up designed with everyone in mind (from 19 to 99)? Now that’s something we can get behind. New from 19/99, this {Cream Contour Stick} throws shade just where you want it. Making light work of sculpting, this featherweight but wax-rich formula has a buttery texture that melts into skin (but not into your make up bag!) without fading, feeling greasy or settling into fine lines and pores. Swipe on and blend out to create soft shadows and light sculpting, or build up for a dramatically chiselled effect. Whatever your contour style, it creates a beautiful finish that always looks like skin.
