CHARLOTTE TILBURY’S NEWEST EYE PALETTE AND PAT MCGRATH X SUPREME LIPSTICK COLLAB HEAD UP OUR LIST OF THE MOST EXCITING LAUNCHES THIS WEEK

IT’S A BUMPER WEEK IN BEAUTY AND WELLNESS WITH NEWNESS FROM BEAUTY’S BIGGEST HITTERS AS WELL AS COOL INDIE BRANDS. HERE’S WHAT WE THINK IS WORTH SHOUTING ABOUT

Every so often a new launch comes along that gets everyone talking and signing up to waiting lists and this week we’ve got two that fit into those categories; the annual launch of Tilbury’s Instant Eyes To Hypnotise Palette (only around for 48 hours, quick!) and the Pat McGrath x Supreme lipstick launch that is on everybody’s lips… even Cardi B has been wearing it. Both are out today.

Here’s our take on the much-lauded launches, plus our thoughts on the other note-worthy new arrivals.

CHARLOTTE TILBURY INSTANT EYE PALETTE IN BEJEWELLED EYES TO HYPNOTISE

Loved by: Victoria Woodhall, editorial director

“Every year around this time Charlotte Tilbury brings out a special Instant Eye Palette with 12 new shades and this year I’m personally excited that it’s not all coppers and nudes but glorious jewel tones, with some gorgeous amethyst purples to make most eye colours pop. As ever Tilbury are teasing this drop in a 48-hour limited release until midnight on Saturday (12th September) before bringing it back as holiday season approaches. With it’s a silver starburst case and shimmering textured shades this is as good for dress up glamour as a smokin’ glow.”

PAT MCGRATH X SUPREME LIPSTICK, £36

Loved by: Jemma Thompson, GTG social media and designer

“2020 has brought many surprises but one I wasn’t expecting was this collab. The days of me taking my little brother to Soho to brace the infamous Supreme queue are over and now I’m in line. But this is two of the most coveted brands in the fashion and beauty world colliding and who doesn’t want a slice of the limited-edition pie? From Oreos to Louis Vuitton Supreme is known for their sell-out collaborations but this is their first venture into beauty in 26 years and let’s just say the debut has got hypebeats and beauty buffs alike hearts racing. And for good reason, if it’s one thing we do know you can never go wrong with a MatteTrance lipstick from THE mother herself Pat McGrath. A stunning matte finish, yet wearable and hydrating; it’s richly pigmented, creamy and opaque and this soon-to-be iconic bold red lip in shade “Supreme” is guaranteed to be a sell-out. Will it be re-released? We don’t know yet, but one thing is for sure if you nab one of these you’ve hit the beauty jackpot. Will this be front and centre on my shelfie beauty shrine? Probably yes, I’m just a little precious with using it, it’s the lipstick to use for stand-out occasions.”

BY TERRY HYALURONIC PRESSED HYDRA-POWER FACE SETTING POWDER, £38

Loved by: Ophelia Froud, GTG contributor

“Need a ‘back to school’ beauty staple for your new pencil case AKA make-up bag? I’m hooked on this vegan formula which has just landed in their range in a travel-friendly compact. I’ve long been a big fan of their loose colourless, micro-fine plumping powder but my fast and frantic makeup routine often meant I spilt the powder everywhere as I rushed to finish my five-minute face routine. So I was thrilled to see they have turned it into a compact. With a handy mirror and puff applicator, it’s a beauty must-have for invisibly setting makeup and creating a matte and even finish. This travel-friendly version controls shine, blurs imperfections and has the added bonus of hyaluronic acid which meant it didn’t dry out my skin like many face powders. Until I started using this I found many face powders drying and ageing. Hyaluronic is acid is the magic plumping ingredient and moisture magnet that locks in hydration. It’s now my go-to ‘back to school’ beauty-staple for that flawless finish.”

SUMMER FRIDAYS SOFT RESET AHA EXFOLIATING SOLUTION, £49

Loved by: Melanie Macleod, digital writer

“Everything about this, from the powder blue packaging to the word soft in the name suggest it’s very gentle and while it doesn’t sting like some acid exfoliators do, it certainly works hard, including 16per cent AHAs including lactic and glycolic acid to promote cell turnover and slough off dead skin. It has an aloe leaf base to make it less sting-inducing and includes niacinamide in the ingredients list to brighten the skin that little bit extra. Makeup artist Nam Vo, who is known for ridiculously dewy dolphin skin, posted on Instagram Stories that she uses this in her regime, so you know it’s going to be good at perfecting skin. Plus it looks just lovely on my dressing table.”

MONPURE STRENGTHENING SILK PROTEIN SHAMPOO, £36

Loved by: Marie-Louise Pumfrey, GTG contributor

“Something’s up with my hair. I’ve been shedding badly; there are strands everywhere and my locks are lustreless. Apparently we are prone to hair fall in the autumn but I think the cheap supermarket shampoo I’m using is the culprit. Feeling slightly panicky I called GTG’s editorial director Victoria, who recommended Monpure, a luxury ‘skincare for hair’ range which launched just this year and specialises in healthy hair maintenance and (re)growth. I’ve been using this shampoo for the last couple of weeks and the improvement was immediate. It’s packed with botanicals and potent actives to feed and protect the scalp with vegan silk peptides. The coconut-derived cleansing agent delivers a glossy, smooth finish and there’s keratin to fortify the strands. It’s also free from parabens and sulphates. After two washes, the body and bounce are back in my hair and although I’m still moulting a little, I can see some improvement.”
