Welcome to Newness Alert, our fortnightly wrap of the latest beauty products worth knowing about.
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Limited Edition
Price: Flowerbomb Eau de toilette La Vie en Rose, 50 ml $130.
On shelf: Now. Available from Myer and David Jones.
Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb is one of the highest selling, most beloved perfumes in the world. Now the genius Dutchmen behind the scent have worked their perfume wizardry on a limited edition version of the fragrance. With top notes of rose, Sambac jasmine and Heights orchid with accents of mandarin, grapefruit and pink pepper, we’re calling it early: this is the perfume you’ll be wearing all spring.
Lanolips Banana Balm
On shelf: Now, buy here.
This is not your average lip balm. Already one of the top selling products for the brand internationally, it seems that Lanolips discovered that what the world was missing right now was a delicious banana flavoured lip balm. As Rachel Zoe would say, ‘Bananas.’
Sodashi Samadara Ultimate Age-Defying Elixir
On shelf: now.
Sodashi’s Samadara Ultimate Age-Defying Elixir is the Speedy Gonzales of serums. Excellent for anyone experiencing redness, dullness, pigmentation, lines and large pores. It unselfishly won’t clog your pores or upset the balance of sebum in the skin either.
Bobbi Brown Surf and Sand Eye Palette
On shelf: From July 6. Available at selected David Jones, Myer, Mecca Maxima stores and online here.
Bobbi Brown must dream eyeshadow colours, specifically ones that we want to wear all the time. Take a look at the brand’s Surf Eye Palette and Sun Eye Palette, filled with eight eyeshadows of shimmery deliciousness. Good luck choosing!
Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Cheek Colour
On shelf: from July 6.
Can we ever have enough easy-to-blend blush products in our lives? Probably not. This one from Laura Mercier goes on sheer and gives skin that dewy, sun kissed “no makeup makeup” look. Clowns need not apply.
L’Oreal Revitalift Magic Blur Daily Anti-Ageing Moisturiser
On shelf: from July 1, buy here.
In your 40s or 50s? Take note of L’Oreal’s latest release in their blur family, Revitalift Magic Blur Daily Anti-Ageing Moisturiser, use it twice daily and you’ll start wondering if your mirror has a soft focus filter on it.*
