New Season Beauty Launches: 10 of the Best | Beauty

Mmost people don’t realize that beauty products have expiration dates: mascara three months; foundation one year to 18 months; moisturizers six months to a year… Beyond their expiry date, the products are less effective and they could give you an infection. September might just be the time to spruce up your beauty kit. Chanel’s tweed-inspired eyeshadow range has shades people really want to wear. Gucci’s new blusher collection has wonderfully wearable colors as well as an impressive skincare formula, just like Rose Inc.’s glossy black mascara. If you’re not quite ready for a foundation of full complexion, Westman Atelier complexion falls skin-complexion hybrid) is a dream. Vieve’s line of 20 concealers is also focused on skincare – think hydration-boosting hyaluronic acid and a glow-inducing complex. American hair brand Function of Beauty is finally flying to the UK. Unlike other custom brands, its prices are incredibly accessible. StriVectin’s retinol is fast-acting, smoothing and improving skin’s texture in just seven days, but without irritation, so it’s also great for sensitive skin. Multi-purpose balms are wonderful, – useful for abrasions, dryness, etc. – especially when they smell as good as those from the Lab. Looking for a new cleanser? Tata Harper’s will refine the skin without stripping it – and it will last a long time. And if you’re looking for a new mask, this one from Sisley – which breaks down dead skin cells for glow in just one minute – is phenomenal. It’s also pricey, but if you want a very effective investment buy, this is it.
