L‘Oréal Blush Sculpt trio contouring blush, R169,95
L’Oréal’s first trio-blush, using Blush Sculpt is easy. Simply apply the cheek highlight shade to the very top of your cheekbones then blend the two blush tones together to add a pop of colour to your apples or swirl all three together for a glow on the go.
Benefit Dew the Hoola soft matte liquid bronzer, R395, Edgars and Red Square
Chase away the winter ‘blahs’ with Benefit’s easy-to-blend new liquid bronzer that can be applied to bare skin or over your favourite moisturiser. It doesn’t contain a single sparkle so the end result is incredibly natural-looking while the colour pay-off’s a golden glow, not a drop of orange.
Catrice Cosmetics Sand Nudes, R89,95, Dis-Chem
Looking for a silky-textured shadow palette with a great colour pay-off that lasts? Catrice’s new Sand Nudes is a neutral-loving girl’s dream come true and the fact that it won’t break the bank makes us love it even more.
Revlon Ultra HD Matte lip colour, R155
Matte lips are still a major trend and Revlon’s latest lip colours serve up 16 lightweight yet vibrant high-impact hues with a velvety matte finish. Unlike so many other matte lip products, Revlon’s hydrating gel formula won’t dry out your lips.
Essence Velvet Stick matt lip colour, R44,95, Dis-Chem and Clicks
Another way to create a matte lip look? Essence’s new colour sticks have a creamy glide-on formula that feels comfortable on your lips while the finish is silky-matt. Also, thanks to the large ‘chubby’ tip, application is simple and fast.
Coverderm Complete Care CC Cream, R476, Dis-Chem.
Coverderm’s new CC cream provides a lovely natural-looking finish that hydrates and treats your skin too thanks to the inclusion of ingredients that soothe, control oil and ease redness. It also protects your skin from the sun and is available in four shades that cater for darker skin tones too. The best bit? It’s also waterproof!
Max Factor Voluptuous false lash effect mascara, R199,95, Clicks
Craving fives times the volume and a wide awake look? Max Factor’s innovative new Lash Uplift Brush features fins to load up lashes and grip them for lift; longer bristles to separate and comb and a boost tip to coat the harder-to-reach lashes. This way, you’re getting maximum impact from every angle.
