Editors Picks: New launches from Rare Beauty, Gisou, BIBBI Parfum and more... Team
28 March 2024

From Rare Beauty's glowy powder blush to Gisou's honey-infused tinted lip oilsand more, here are the top beauty launch picks of the week from team.

Soft Pinch Luminous Powder Blush, Rare Beauty

When Rare Beauty launched its bestselling Soft Pinch Liquid Blush, the beauty industry went wild. It quickly reached viral status and kicked off the trend of dewy, rosy cheeks. Now tapping into the growing trend of glazed blush, similar to its liquid sister, the next iteration of the Soft Pinch family is also something to get excited about!

Described as "unexpectedly smooth and incredibly weightless", this airy blush is highly pigmented and packed with multi-faceted pearls for natural-looking dimension and glow. So, whether you're wanting to build colour for a bolder look or diffuse for a softer effect, this product promises to do it all.

What's more, it is available in six shimmering shade - Cheer (light warm pink), Hope (nude mauve), Happy (cool pink), Joy (muted peach), Truth (mauve maroon), and Love (terracotta) - and is priced at £26.

Daily UV Defense Sunscreen and Daily UV Defence Mineral Sunscreen High Protection, Innisfree

Small glimpses of sunshine have sparked my anticipation for summer – it didn’t take much. But now I’m on the hunt for my go-to summer SPF.

This week, Innisfree’s new SPFs caught my attention. Korean skincare has garnered its elite reputation for good reason and, as Laniege’s sister brand at a cheaper price point, Innisfree is one to trust.

The new Daily UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 30 (£22) contains Jeju Green Tea and Sunflower Seed Oil to hydrate and moisturise skin, while the finish says yes to glowy skin and no to white casts. The brand has also launched the Daily UV Defence Mineral Sunscreen High Protection SPF 50 (£24), which may be better to keep on the back burner until it's time to pack your bags for jet-setting abroad. What’s different about this? It contains eight types of Hyaluronic Acid and Cica to hydrate and soothe skin. It’s also green-tinted to neutralise and colour-correct redness - perfect for my flush cheeks that look pinched up as soon as the weather goes above 20ºC.

Honey Infused Tinted Lip Oils, Gisou

Gisou has harnessed the power of bees and the power of its community for its latest launch, a trio of Honey-Infused Tinted Lip Oils.

#LipOil currently has amassed 138.5 million views on TikTok, followed by #HoneyLips, which has over 69.9 million views, so this is a timely launch from the brand known for its honey-based creations.

Mirsalehi Honey is the hero ingredient in these products, which also contain Bee Garden Oils, JoJoba and Meadowfoam to deliver long lasting wear and hydration. They come in three juicy shades, selected by the Gisou community including Watermelon Sugar, Mango Passion Punch and Strawberry Sorbet. Available at Gisou, they are priced at £24 each.

Rainbow Rose, BIBBI Parfum

Paris-founded perfume brand BIBBI Parfum has released its first new fragrance since the brand’s exclusive launch at Liberty London last autumn. With her fragrances, founder Stina ‘Bibbi’ Seger brings a fresh approach to the market, with each scent drawing inspiration from dreamlike encounters she has experienced while in a meditative state.

The inspiration for the latest perfume, named Rainbow Rose, comes from the scent of a book Seger found at the end of a rainbow while meditating in the Vatican. The top notes are Pink Freesia and Magnolia, with heart notes of Rose Centifolia and Skin Musks, and base notes of Ambroxan, Cashmere Woods and Orris Butter. It is available in-store and online at Liberty in 100ml (£225) and 30ml (£110).
