What’s the easiest way to cheat that post-workout flush? Which hot new product is making BB creams look like a dinosaur? Is there really a matte lipstick out there that doesn’t turn your lips into sandpaper? ELLE’s Beauty Editor Mamta Mody holds your hand through the tough questions: Behold, her pick of products that’ll effortlessly brighten up a low-key regimen.

7 fresh beauty products you need to get your hands on

Estée Lauder Genuine Glow Eyelighting Creme, Rs 1,950 on Nykaa.com

As a lightweight highlighter, the molten gold creme will bathe your face in a sun-kissed glow, and as a sheer eyeshadow, it will brighten up your peepers.

Lancôme Cushion Blush in Sparkling Framboise, Rs 3,500

The bright fuchsia looks intense in the compact, but it is, in fact, wildly flattering. A few pats of this creamy cheek tint will give you that ran-a-mile flush.

Kiko Milano Creamy Matte Lipstick in Vintage Rose, Rs 1,050

It’s tricky to find a matte lipstick that doesn’t dry out your lips, but this one’s moisture-packed formula proves otherwise.

Valentino Donna, Rs 7,000/ 100 ml EDT

Unlike sugary feminine fragrances, this powdery floral blend makes a strong impression with the suede-like warmth emanating from its vanilla and leather notes.

Dermalogica Daily Superfoliant, Rs 4,995

This activated binchotan charcoal scrub effectively sloughs away oil, grime and skin-damaging pollutants to give you the smoothest feeling ever.

Clinique Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops, Rs 2,950

This is a true successor to BB creams. Mix a drop with your moisturiser for sheer coverage. Or add three, to turn it into a full-on creamy foundation.

Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in Fiery, Rs 950

It goes on like lip balm and delivers vibrant colour minus the glossiness. Just what you need when a lipstick seems like too much effort.
