Spring/Summer beauty launches
by Sneha Sadarangani
This March, stock up your vanity case with the latest offerings from some of our favourite beauty brands. Take your pick from ballerina-inspired lip glosses to intensely hydrating creams.
Bobbi Brown’s latest collection is all about the lips. Staying true to its name, the Red Lip, Nude Lip range includes three neutral and three bold lip shades in the brand’s much-loved creamy matte finish. The pale shades are perfect for the day and transition well into a night look with smoky eyes, while the reds make for a classic statement look.

The season brings the heat and with it, skin problems. To tackle annoying breakouts and the summer staple – dark spots, Clinque gives us two new skincare solutions. Providing an invisible screen between you and the sun, the Even Better Dark Spot Defense SPF 45 offers chemical-free high-level UVA/UVB protection, while the Anti Blemish Solutions Clinical Clearing Gel zaps away zits and prevents breakouts.
Spring was lusting for just this – the pastel palette of Lancôme’s ‘French Ballerine’ collection. Reminiscent of a ballerina’s tutu and her satin tie-up shoes, the colours range from luscious peach to delicate rose. Our pick from the line-up includes the Dazzling Ombre Hypnôse range – two velvet finish eye shadows in pink and glamorous gold – and the Gloss In Love range which include a lip volumiser and glosses in bold pink and a subtle earthy shade.
If the winter months have left your skin drier than ever, then spring brings with it Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream Intense Hydration. Upping the ante on their bestselling Ultra Facial Cream, this version is replete with refined apricot oil and Enriched Hyaluronic Acid, perfect for dry to very dry skin.
