The Best Beauty Products To Buy This Weekend Straight From The Grazia Beauty Cupboard

06 June 2014 by


Chantecaille La Crème à la Rose de Mai, £175

Don’t be fooled by its pretty [a target="_blank" href="">pink packaging[/a], this luxe repairing cream does more than just smell like a bed of roses. It’s healing and restoring properties will leave your skin feeling plumped and as smooth as silk. 

Benefit Dream Screen, £25

Unfortunately for us ladies, summer weather and make-up don’t quite see eye to eye. Sunscreen often gives your complexion a white tinge, feels thick, cloggy and your tinted moisturiser peels off when smoothed on top of it. Not a pretty sight. Enter Benefit’s [a target="_blank" href="">Dream Screen[/a] with its oil-free formula and silky matte texture that quickly absorbs into the skin for fuss-free protection.

Alexa Chung Limited Edition Eyeko Me & My Shadow, £15

If you find powder shadows a little too fussy and your blending skills are somewhat challenged, [a target="_blank" href="">Me & My Shadow[/a] is just the ticket for an easy but seductive smokey eye. Its crease resistant formula glides on easily; start with the liner to draw your desired flick then take the brush side and smudge out the liner for a smokey effect.

Topshop Beauty Glitter Pots, £4

As beauty girls, our favourite festival looks are the simple outfits paired with unique, colourful make-up. Whilst a bright lip or a peacock eye may not suit everyone, I think we can all agree glitter is universal. These handy [a target="_blank" href="">little pots from Topshop[/a] can be used on both face and body, grab a couple different colours and get creative!

Clarins New HydraQuench Tinted Moisturizer, £29

If you find that towards the end of the day your make-up is patchy and uneven, particularly in any dry areas, this is the product for you. A lightweight, [a target="_blank" href="">tinted moisturiser[/a] with SPF15 (this doesn’t mean you can ditch the sunscreen!), this product with leave you glowing from the start of the day till the end.

Chanel Lèvres Scintillantes, £22 each

It’s official – this summer lip glosses are making a comeback, with the new [a target="_blank" href="">Chanel Scintillantes[/a] as the crème de la crème of the group. The vibrant summer shades translate as sheer, iridescent colour when swept over the lips. More versatile than a regular gloss, these are our number one handbag essential.

Origins Modern Friction Brightening Pads, £31

If you’re planning to start the summer with a radiant, luminous, ‘I’ve just had a facial’ type of complexion, it’s time to get exfoliating. These [a target="_blank" href="}&cm_mmc=google-_-search-_-brand-_-origins%20modern%20friction&gclid=CjgKEAjwzcWcBRCat43fy9e5i3ASJADXOBwuvFQ3CFFEhXKLFngI30awybF7aoNEA2Thb-OW3apBMPD_BwE">brightening pads[/a] are gentle but thorough, loosening even stubborn surface cells for a more even, flawless skin tone that we all crave.

Revlon Professional Interactives Hydra Balm, £9.90 and Hydra Screen £9.95

Forget the endless serums, creams, sprays, gels, mousses and any other hair paraphernalia we all lug in our suitcases. This dynamic duo has got your summer holiday covered. The [a target="_blank" href="">Hydra Screen[/a] protects your delicate hair and scalp from the sun and prevents humidity from damaging your hair cuticles whilst the Hydra Balm nourishes and repairs.

Miller Harris Tangerine Vert, £95

One third of the limited edition Symphony of Colours collection, the [a target="_blank" href="">Tangerine Vert[/a] is a zesty combination of fruits and flowers. A rather nostalgic fragrance, formulated with the sweet citrus fruits of childhood memories in mind, we’re predicting this tangerine dream will fly off the shelves.

Topshop Beauty Red Lippy Lipstick, £8

Nothing cuts a classic beauty statement more than a red lip, so us beauty girls are in full support of Topshop Beauty’s latest collaboration with Cervical Screening Awareness Week (8-14 June). Step forward The Red Lippy Project! Simply arm yourself with their highly pigmented red lipstick (prime to suit every skin tone, FYI), pucker up and make your mark on Instagram using #redlippyproject or #makeamark. What’s more, 33% of each [a target="_blank" href="">lipstick[/a] sold will be donated to Red Lippy Project- too cute!

Is that sun we see? While we would rather not do a full blown victory dance at the risk of scaring it away again, we’re all gleefully planning a weekend outdoors from our desks. With the new and hopefully permanent weather in fully swing, now is the time to start the summer revamp of our beauty arsenal. From make-up to sun care, we’ve got your essentials covered. Click through the gallery above and prepare for a serious beauty bonanza...
