The best new beauty arrivals to shop this month


The best new beauty arrivals to shop this month
New beauty arrivals are talented multi-taskers that will help put a spring in your step and streamline your routines this season.

With the seasons changing it may be time to tweak your beauty routine slightly.

A richer moisturiser is just one way to ensure your skin holds on to essential moisture when the weather is cooler. Evolving your makeup slightly to deeper tones or adding a touch of blush or bronzer to enhance skin that’s seeing less sun, is another.

Of course, a little pick-me-up in the form of a new lipstick is perfectly acceptable too!

We love the way products are becoming more multi-tasking, combining more than just one function, like makeup that is full of kind-to-skin ingredients. Lip products too, are more moisturising than ever before.

There are plenty of new beauty arrivals to inspire us for the season landing on shelves this month.

Shiseido TechnoSatin Gel Lipsticks

Shiseido is one of those brands that’s always at the forefront of beauty innovation and its products regularly reveal that fearless commitment to creating better solutions. It certainly pays off in the just-landed TechnoSatin Gel Lipsticks. Incredible pigment with a silky feel, the lippies have a special flexible formulation that weightlessly wraps lips with comfortable color that doesn’t crack, feather, or flake.

That second skin feel is in part thanks to moisturising benibana oil. This oil was traditionally used as a lipstick base in Kabuki theatre and Geisha culture, a nod to the brand’s Japanese heritage and historic beauty rituals.

Jane Iredale PureBonze Bronzers

Jane Iredale has re-vamped its bronzer range and now has a range of both radiant shimmer and matte options. Each is available as a refill that fits within the brand’s Refillable Foundation Compact so you’ll create less waste each time you finish one. We love the stunning new Copper Dusk shade – when swirled together it creates a radiant glow on cheeks. Use a smaller brush and you can use each of the four hues as an eyeshadow too, which makes it super handy for travel.

ghd Sunsthetic collection


If you’ve been thinking about upgrading your hair tool of choice, now might be the time! ghd periodically releases limited-edition colour-ways of its most popular tools and this new collection sees them presented in beautiful soft-pastel metallics inspired by sunrises and sunsets. The range includes the wide-plate ghd Max (ideal for styling long, thick and curly hair); ghd Glide smoothing brush; classic Gold styler, top of the line Platinum+ styler, and the powerful ghd Helios hairdryer.

Kérastase Genesis Homme


With its new anti-hair loss range for men, Kérastase has put its research and development teams on the case of minimising hair ‘fall’ and improving the look and health of weakened or thinning hair. ‘Instant-fix’ solutions include a styling spray and molding clay that help existing strands look thicker and with more volume. Daily haircare infused with follicle-boosting ingredients like stimulating creatine, ginger root and aminexil (a powerful alternative to minoxidil) aim to offer long-term growth benefits.


Handcare isn’t high on the beauty must-haves list, but new brand byebyebad is certainly making it more appealing than ever with its cool packaging and considered ingredients. Besides, that’s not all they do. The Kiwi brand harnesses the power of Totorol, an extract from fallen trees and off-cuts of the mighty Tōtara tree. A potent antioxidant with anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties, it’s been used in the aforementioned ‘hand protector’ (like a sanitiser, but alcohol-free and designed to inhibit growth of bad bacteria) and prebiotic handwash as well as a prebiotic ‘mouth refresher’ and ‘face shield’ mist the brand says protects against the impact of blue light exposure.

Abel Black Anise

Natural fragrance experts Abel has a new arrival into its carefully considered stable of unique scents. Darker and moodier and more nuanced than you might expect from natural perfumery, Black Anise is a vibrant, smoky amber, with star anise top notes, a black currant and cacao heart, and a tobacco base. It’s perfectly timed for the winter season where more dominant and distinctive scents can hold their own. Admirably, in introducing Black Anise to its core fragrance collection of seven scents, Abel will, as part of their strict ‘one in, one out’ philosophy, remove the 2017 addition Grey Labdanum from production.

RMS Liplights Cream Lip Gloss

A lovely combination between a lip balm, lip tint and lip gloss, these little tubes deliver sheer colour in a nourishing base of shea butter, cocoa seed butter and jojoba oil and also contain peptides to help firm and plump the skin on your lips. There are 7 shades in all.

Dermalogica Micellar Prebiotic PreCleanse

If a double cleanse is regularly part of your routine at then end of the day, we highly recommend you try out this unique new option as an alternative to a balm or oil cleanser. The creamy-milky texture cleanser is the perfect ‘first-step’ cleanse, lifting away dirt, oil, and makeup while helping balance skin’s microbiome with prebiotics. It’s full of lovely plant-based ingredients including Murumuru Butter, oatmilk, apricot kernel oil and cotton seed protein and leaves skin hydrated and soft. We find it efficient enough to use on its own without leaving residue, but you can also follow with a second deeper cleanse from a gel or milk cleanser.


New to MECCA this month is inventive and cool US perfume brand, fittingly named DedCool. Among the head-turning modern perfumes, the brand also brings stylish scent to other areas of our lives. This includes laundry detergent, car air fresheners and even the less-mentioned parts of our homes like deoderising the loo with the creative (and effective!) PooDrops you can add to the toilet. Far more appealing than the long-outdated lavender-scented supermarket standard options!

Essie On A Roll

We’ve been carrying this little beauty everywhere as it makes it so quick and easy to apply nourishing cuticle oil to your fingernails. This helps your nail beds stay strong and flexible (especially important if you regularly have gel polish or extensions) and encourages healthy growth.

The Ordinary new releases


We are entering a new era for The Ordinary, the science-backed, ingredient-led, affordable skincare brand known for bringing advanced formulas to the masses. With six imminent product releases this season, the brand has been in what it calls The O Lab, an in-house laboratory where formulators consider new ingredients and the desires of loyal customers while creating what comes next.

First out the gate was Glucoside Foaming Cleanser, a gentle foaming cleanser, that offers a more clarifying option for oilier skin types that effectively cleanses the skin while maintaining the skin’s moisture barrier.  Then there’s the richer Glycolipid Cream Cleanser that takes off makeup and Aloe  2% + NAG 2%,  a soothing serum for blemish-prone skin. Natural Moisturizing Factors + PhytoCeramides is a moisturiser with a slightly richer texture that can be used by those with dry or dehydrated skin, or wanting additional barrier support. Stay tuned to for further new releases landing soon.
