Editors' Picks: New Launches from Byoma, Benefit, Haus Labs and more... Team
19 April 2024

From Benefit Cosmetics' exfoliating powder to Byoma's pH lip oil, and more, here are the top beauty launch picks of the week from team.

Color Fuse Blush Powder, Haus Labs

I'm going to start with a shameful admission: I've been using the same NARS powder blush for years. I love it, but we all know makeup has a shelf life, and mine is way past that! So, when a lovely package from Haus Labs arrived at the office, I knew it was time to finally say goodbye to my trusty NARS compact and hello to Haus Labs's Color Fuse Blush Powders.

Once limited-edition, the blushes (£28) have returned and offer a buildable pop of colour for any skin tone. Available in six shades - a mauve pink, beige peach, soft coral, cool pink, universal red, and neutral rose - there really is something for everyone. What's more, the formula is packed with skin-loving ingredients, including fermented arnica to reduce redness and irritation, shea butter to moisturise, and squalane to nourish and soften skin, amongst other ingredients to help support the skin barrier.

Wow Polish, Benefit Cosmetics

With fine lines, acne and pigmentation at the forefront of most people’s skin concerns, sometimes pores are forgotten about. But not when it comes to Benefit Cosmetics. Though the brand is renowned for its retro-glam packaging and brow products, its skincare line isn’t to be overlooked.

Its skincare line – dubbed ‘pore care’ – features an extensive range of pore-shrinking formulas. Its latest addition? Wow Polish. From the creators of the iconic Porefessionial face primer, this triple pore-exfoliating power gently removes dry skin and tightens pores.

Not wanting to revert to old-fashioned, damaging face scrubs and finding activated liquid exfoliators too harsh on my dry skin, this product is the answer to my prayers. Three water-activated polishing powders work together to gently exfoliate and smooth skin.

Liptide pH Lip Oil, Byoma

If there’s one thing that can dampen my day, it’s dry lips. And as many lip care obsessives will know, Vaseline and Carmex are not a one-balm-fits-all solution for pillowy softness and can sometimes even exacerbate the issue.

Byoma has just released its new Liptide pH Lip Oil, which supports the lips’ fragile skin barrier whilst also plumping and hydrating. It contains both avocado and tamanu oil, which promise reconstructive properties, reversing any preexisting cracking or flaking. The lip oil uses a careful blend of peptides to boost collagen production and cell production too, naturally working to plump your lips and reduce fine lines.

Finally, the oil adjusts to your skin's natural pH, creating a personalised tint while also promoting a glossy – but never sticky – finish. Mwah!

Limited-edition Delina flacon, Parfums de Marly,

TikTok-famous fragrance Delina from niche, luxury fragrance house Parfums de Marly is now available for the first time in a limited-edition flacon that is every bit as divine as the scent itself.

Described as "an ode to the Damascena rose, to the 18th century and, above all, to femininity", #Delina has to date notched up more than 115 million views on TikTok.

It is the signature creation of the Parfums de Marly Haute Parfumerie house created by Julien Sprecher in 2017, which seeks to revive the splendour of the lifestyle of Château de Marly, a place dedicated to pleasure and celebration during the 18th century. The new flacon has been inspired by the floral motifs found in 18th-century interiors and features a climbing rose motif in reference to its hero ingredient.

I live in a mid-20th century British house, which bears no resemblance to an 18th Century Château, but this would still look right at home on my dressing table.

Priced at £255 for 75ml, it is available at Harrods and Parfums de Marly and will be landing at Selfridges and Harvey Nichols on 1 May.
