Summer’s most coveted beauty buys to keep you luminous through the season

Beauty Station! Beat the heat

We’ve been trawling beauty exhibitions around the city and watching our social media feeds in anticipation of these items becoming available. Most of them are backed by solid brands that have been giving us one hit after the other but they are also completely ingenious in the way they are designed. We give you a roundup of the best beauty buys right now, so you can just go ahead and make the purchase.

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask

Tilbury’s Wonderglow and Magic cream are two of the acclaimed British makeup artist’s best creations. She is known to keep innovating within her lines and her latest launch is no exception. A sheet mask that’s completely dry to the touch, the ingredients are only released once you massage your face for 30 seconds after having placed it on. Not only is it a lot less messy than say, their Korean counterparts, it can also be reused up to three times. And that’s not even our favourite part – the attached loops that slip over your ears to keep the mask in place. This can be purchased from TheMakeupJunkieOfficial on Instagram.

Huda beauty 3D highlighter palette 

The beauty blogger turned beauty entrepreneur sent the world into frenzy when she launched her 3D highlighting palette. Inspired by her DIY hack using oil under a powder to intensify the highlight, she developed four shades within each palette that create a seamless and three-dimensional glow. With two separate palettes for fair and darker tones, it is creamy, incredibly blendable and gives subtle reflects. We also love that it can be shipped directly to Pakistan from her website

Kylie Jenner summer vacation kit

The world has been frothing over her cosmetics line since it launched back in 2016 and now the poolside hanging, bikini clad girl who seems like she’s on a permanent holiday is launching her ‘holiday capsule’ collection. This includes a new Kyshadow palette, a Send Me More Nudes lip kit (with velvet/matte options) and a summer lip kit in June Bug, a super bright purple shade.

There’s also the Skinny Dip bronzer/highlighter face duo, three Ultra Glow loose highlighters, the Wet Set dry highlighter quad and a Super Glitter Gloss. The Take Me on Vacation palette especially, looks like a summer dream and can also be purchased from TheMakeupJunkieOfficial on Instagram.

Olay Duo: Dual-Sided Body Cleanser

This body cleanser will change the way you shower. Inside what looks like a mere sponge is a cleanser that foams up when wet. One side is smooth, the other textured for times you want more scrub than dub. You can also appreciate that the sponge will shrink over time, indicating when it’s time to toss it. This can be picked up from the beauty exhibitions around the city!

Naked Heat Palette

When the first Naked Palette was dropped in 2010, I remember how it quickly morphed into quite a beauty industry phenomenon. It went on to inspire an entire collection of Naked products including blushers, bronzers, lipsticks, and nine more palettes. The palette’s popularity also has to do with the impressive array of on trend colours – burnt orange, terracotta and rust hues to flatter a wide range of eye colors and skin tones. In fact, the palette is perfect for creating sunset eyes or burnt-orange looks, two makeup trends that have been dominating red carpets world over. The palette got sold out in minutes of launching and won’t be restocked on Urban Decays website until June 30th.
