15 June 2022

The best new beauty this month, from velvety foundations and epic hot tools to exciting exfoliants and power-packed skin potions.

Follow from left clockwise (starting with Clarins Skin Illusion Velvet Foundation).

It’s a kind of magic

With its lightweight, silky and comfortable texture that melts into the skin leaving an even, matte,
moisturised bare-skin finish, just a few drops of Clarins Skin Illusion Velvet Foundation ($65) is all you need to instantly enhance your complexion, control shine and blur imperfections. Available in 23 shades.

Smooth operator

An exciting evolution of Dermalogica’s iconic exfoliating powder Daily Microfoliant, new Daily Milkfoliant ($119, available from June 10) is clinically proven to smooth skin calmly. The smoothing vegan polish contains a soothing, nourishing cocktail of botanical extracts, essential minerals, hyaluronic acid, oat and coconut that activates on contact with water for a gentle, replenishing skin experience.

Pucker up

Available in eight shades from neutral beige to vibrant fuchsia (we’re partial to luxe pinky mauve Slip, pictured), Hourglass Phantom Volumizing Glossy Balm ($56 at Mecca) is an innovative 3-in-1 hybrid that hydrates like a lip balm, plumps for fuller-looking lips and delivers the high-shine finish of a lip gloss without the stickiness.

Hair hair!

Dyson always means business when it comes to technology and innovation, so it’s no surprise they’ve found a way to improve on the already fairly amazing Airwrap hair styling tool ($999, available
from June 16). The new-gen version has been given a radical redesign via new and reengineered attachments, which means enhanced styling options you can personalise to perfectly suit your hair type while maintaining its health and shine.

Crème de la crème

Following two years of research and development and a growing (5,000+) global waitlist, Emma Lewisham’s Skin Reset Eye Crème ($112) has finally hit the market. Engineered with 18 of the most scientifically proven, high performing active ingredients and two pioneering liposomal delivery systems, this (refillable) little purple pot delivers the eye area a deep dose of antioxidants and moisture.


Developed to address the most pressing skin concerns for women aged 50+ discovered through in-depth research, Kiwi brand Essano has introduced its new Visible Repair collection, featuring clinically proven formulas that are naturally and specifically designed for mature skin. As well as day, night and eye creams, the star of the range is the Facial Elixir ($50), a powerful oil-based formulation loaded up with goodies to reduce signs of ageing and empower wearers.
