Best New Beauty Buys For June

From new, niche and affordable brushes to the genius hair products everyone’s talking about, these are the must-have buys on our beauty wish-list this month, from just £7.99…


Milk Make-Up Glow Oil Lip & Cheek Sticks, £12

These travel-friendly blush sticks may look daunting in colour, but their super sheer formulas melt into your skin for a creamy, watercolour flush that’s seriously flattering. Our favourite? Astro. While it’s the darkest shade, it translates into a sun-bitten glow that our cheeks and lips can’t get enough of.

Guerlain Météorites Swirl Blush, £24

This cute little dome-shaped blush-come-highlighter can be applied by swiping directly on your cheek, or you can tap it on with your fingers. It blends down to a lightweight, dewy finish, so it’s super light-weight and is easy to build up to a natural-looking or bold glow.

Rimmel Blush Jellies, £7.99

Rimmel’s new blush jellies are a bestseller for a reason. Not only are they incredibly satisfying to touch, they add a quick peachy glow with a single swipe, plus a little goes a long way.

Lumene Midsummer Self Tan Drops, £25.90

Here at SL we’re a sucker for tan drops that deliver a believable glow and Lumene’s formula has fast become our go-to. Formulated with glow-giving vitamin C and nourishing Wild Arctic Cloudberry, a few drops mixed into your moisturiser will give your skin a bronze tint in a matter of hours. We’ll be using this all-year-round.

L’Oréal Paris Glow Cherie Natural Glow Enhancer Lotion, £9.99

This luminous lotion coats skin with a golden glow while the addition of watermelon hydrates for a plump, smooth finish. The fine particles of shimmer catch the light beautifully and look best when dabbed onto the cheekbones or down the bridge of your nose for an extra shot of light. Or, mix with your go-to base for all-over radiance.

NYX Make-Up Bare With Me Hydrating Jelly Primer, £16

No make-up physically shrinks pores, but NYX’s latest primer comes close as soon as it’s rubbed onto the skin. The bouncy jelly creates a veil over the skin, giving a glass-like finish that lasts all day with no unwanted pilling.

bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Hydrating Foundation Stick, £29

It’s not often we fall for a foundation stick but this new one from bareMinerals had us at hello. Available in 20 shades, it caters to all skin colours and undertones, is free of pore-clogging oils and glides on seamlessly thanks to its enhanced mineral water formula for a flawless finish that provides impressive coverage. And the addition of SPF25 is a huge bonus, too.

Marc Jacobs Youthquake Hydra-Full Retexturising Gel Crème, £21

After making its debut backstage during fashion month, this highly anticipated cream has finally arrived and is already creating a huge buzz. Loaded with hydrating hyaluronic acid, exfoliating enzymes and skin-plumping antioxidants, this lightweight gel-cream works to gradually exfoliate and nourish skin simultaneously. Plus, the enviable glow it creates is unbeatable.

The Ordinary Salicylic Acid 2% Masque, £9.90

Despite launching numerous serums, cleansers and retinoids, The Ordinary have never released a face mask. Until now that is, and it doesn’t disappoint. Their new clay-based treatment works to clear congested pores for a smooth, refreshed finish. Plus, it’s packed with salicylic acid to stop unwanted spots in their tracks too. It’s worth noting though, while it’s vegan-friendly, the addition of fragrance may be irritating to sensitive skin types.

Amika Reset Exfoliating Jelly Shampoo, £20

Flaky, irritated scalp? Cult haircare brand Amika have launched this new shampoo scrub to counteract hair problems. Packed with charcoal, pink clay and sea salt, the gentle scrub instantly relieves and refreshes even the most oily, itchy or sensitive scalps while getting rid of product build-up, too. Perfect for dry shampoo lovers.

Kristin Ess Hair Soft Shine Beach Wave Spray, £20

Kristin Ess is the luxe haircare brand of the moment and their new beach spray is a must for anyone wanting added texture. You only need a very light misting throughout your hair for cool-girl waves that don’t feel salty or crunchy. The holiday scent is seriously addictive too, while their signature ‘zip-up’ technology protects split ends and conditions damaged cuticles.

Available at

Cloud Nine Micro Wand, £109

This small wand works to create natural looking curls that really go the distance. With a mineral-infused ceramic barrel, and three unique heat settings, you can expect glossy results without compromising your hair’s strength, softness or shine. It can be a little fiddly to navigate as it’s a thin, single wand, so a top trick is to wear gloves while styling to protect your fingers and leave the ends of your hair off the wand for a beachier vibe.

Jo Malone London Edition Candle in Pomegranate Noir – London Edition, £52

Jo Malone’s latest collection pays homage to some of the world’s most vibrant cities with eight signature scents that are housed in a unique, hand-sketched jar. Fans of Jo Malone’s classic Pomegranate Noir scent will love London’s offering, designed with varying stripes to represent rain, it’s a chic addition to any home, with of course, the beloved scent of deep wood and heady smoke.

Neom Organics Real Luxury Magnesium Body Butter, £36

Nourishing but never greasy, Neom’s cosseting body butter is skin-plumping, fast-absorbing and it smells heavenly. Shea butter and olive oil restore dry, lacklustre limbs to their softer-selves, but it’s the heavy dose of magnesium that’s the real star. Slather it on at night to reap the muscle and anxiety relieving benefits – trust us, you’ll feel ready to relax and unwind straight away.

Beauty Bakerie Brushes, from £11.50

New to the market, this affordable brand offers an impressive variety of brushes with densely packed, cruelty-free synthetic bristles. Whether you’re looking to contour, buff or conceal, they’ve got you covered, and all without breaking the bank.

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner, £13.60 (was £17)

Urban Decay’s liners have always been our go-to for a foolproof glitter eye, and now they’ve launched nine new shades for summer that we can’t get enough of. The subtle sparkle can be worn alone along the upper lash line (for a subtle hint) or on top of your eyeshadow if you want more of an impact. Plus, once it’s dry, it really won’t budge or slip down onto your cheeks.
