In December, we tend to turn our attention away from ourselves and onto showering others with gifts. But after the year you’ve had, you’ve earned the right to spoil yourself, too. These new a-beauty products that just hit shelves are the perfect treats to end your tumultuous year on a high note.
Best for creating a new fragrance memory
OUR PICK: Who is Elijah Muse EDP
Start your new year fresh with a whole new signature scent. Who is Elijah Muse EDP is the perfect pick - it’s inspired by a memory of innocent summer love stories filled with passion and sensuality and features tropical, floral solar notes that dry down to intoxicating notes of jasmine absolute.
Best for an instant pick-me-up
If there’s one thing you can always count on a bright lipstick for, it’s to provide you with an instant pick-me-up. From your mood to your confidence, a single swipe can lift you in the most powerful of ways. We’re already big fans of the Eye of Horus Goddess Lipstick range for its 100% vegan, 98% naturally derived formula and creamy, highly-pigmented colour payoff. Now its two latest shades - the fiery blue-red Rhiannon Ruby and the everyday satin red Gaia Spice - have also made their way into regular rotation in our lipstick collections.
Best for starting good habits
OUR PICK: tbh. Skin Shady Face Moisturiser SPF 50+
Still not a daily sunscreen applier? 2021 is the year to change that and this new broad-spectrum SPF 50+ face sunscreen is here to help. The formula is lightweight and oil-free so it won’t interfere with your makeup or leave you looking like a greasy mess. It also contains glycerin, alkyl benzoate and vitamin E to help moisturise your skin while it protects it from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
Best for embracing native ingredients
OUR PICK: We Are Feel Good Kakadu Plum Body Milk
Australia is home to some seriously potent native ingredients and Kakadu plum would have to be one of its top Holy Grail finds. Resilient and packed with antioxidants, the power of Kakadu plum has been harnessed in this body moisturiser to give dry, sun-parched Aussie skin a big hit of hydration and nourishment.
Best party season essential
OUR PICK: Elle Effect The Tint
Need to tan in a flash? This new instant self-tan from Australian influencer Elle Ferguson is already earning itself a cult following. The buildable formula has light-reflecting particles that give skin an illuminating effect while camouflaging scars, stretch marks and a fading tan. Plus, the lightweight yet nourishing formula (which is enriched with coconut oil, rosehip oil, shea butter and jojoba) melts into the skin so you can forget you’re wearing it.
