For anyone who has just returned from a sun holiday, e.l.f’s new Sunkissed Booster Drops is the beauty drop you have been waiting for. The concentrated drops are infused with argan oil and vitamin E to reduce the damage of UV exposure while boosting a radiant sunkissed glow. The drops can be used on their own or added into any foundation or moisturising cream.

Priced at €11.95 and available in selected Penneys stores and Boots.ie.

Charlotte Tilbury has launched her latest foundation as part of her luxurious complexion story. The new Airbrush Flawless Foundation is where makeup meets skincare—not only is it a full coverage, mattifying, stay-all-day foundation that comes in 44 different shades, it also contains first to market ingredients in a complexion product. Magic Replexium® is said to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, C.T. Defence™ helps protect the skin from daily pollutants, and AirCool™ keeps the skin cool after use and protects against sweating.

The demand for Tilbury’s latest drop has vastly exceeded expectations with over 17,000 sign-ups before the product was launched exclusively in August so expect great things.

Priced at €40 and available in all Charlotte Tilbury stockists and on charlottetilbury.com.

Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Eye Concentrate, €65

Shiseido, the Japanese brand synonymous for merging groundbreaking technologies with nature, is launching a brand new eye serum designed to protect the fragile eye area from daily friction. Given the brand’s hugely popular Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate has garnered over 151 awards in the beauty industry—and is a best-selling product, with one bottle sold every 13 seconds—, it is no surprise to see the inevitable expansion of the range to include a dedicated eye serum. The new Power Infusing Eye Concentrate applies the same patented ImuGeneration TechnologyTM as used in the facial serum, combined with the botanical power of the reinforcing Reishi mushroom and energising Iris extract.

Each of these ingredients is known to reinforce the skin’s condition, strengthen the eye area and reduce the signs of dark circles, puffiness, dehydration, and early signs of ageing. They say big things come in small packages and we expect this eye concentrate to prove its mantle. The concentrate can be used on it is own but is recommended to use with another eye treatment to produce the best results.

Priced at €65 and available from Arnotts.ie and select pharmacies nationwide from October.

Kérastase Fusio-Scrub, €49.90

Kérastase, the hair care specialists, has launched a new exclusive salon-based scrub targeted at generating healthier hair and follicle growth with a scalp-first treatment. The new range is designed to detoxify, remove deep impurities and revitalise the scalp through the use of essential oils such as sandalwood, peppermint and ginger which encourage and stimulate healthy root growth to create more radiant hair. The scrub is available in two formats, the soothing Scrub Apaisant, formulated for sensitive scalps resulting in increased volume and shine, and the energising Scrub Énergisant which removes excess sebum and targets impurities and pollution with a sea-salt base.

Priced at €49.90 each and available in Kérastase salons now.

Despite its recent launch, this mask is already being hailed as a hero product that lives up to its hype. Using an algae-based formula, including seaweed and other ingredients, the Ultra Smart mask can reduce the appearance of fine lines by plumping skin in minutes, and offers all-day soothing hydration thanks to the ultra-smart ‘Aqua Shuttle’, a technology that blends the effects of algae and humectants to slowly release over 24 hours. For best effect, it is recommended to apply twice a week for 20 minutes over a 28 day period.

Priced at €168 and available at Debenhams.ie.
