Clinique x Kate Spade

Clinique boosts reach with new Kate Spade New York collaboration

Clinique has partnered with Kate Spade New York to launch a limited-edition collection of lip products, allowing the brands to "reach new consumers who are immersed in the worlds of fashion and beauty".

In their first-ever collaboration, the brands have joined forces to unveil a playful collection that combines vibrant Kate Spade patterns with a collection of Clinique's Pop Plush Creamy Lip Gloss in Air Kiss, Juicy Apple and Black Honey shades.

The collection celebrates Kate Spade's designs, infusing them with "fresh and modern" touches such as springtime florals, colourful stripes, kisses, and graphic polka dots. The partnership was developed through a shared vision of representing "joy, optimism and colour, whilst providing prestige products that resonate with consumers".

Priced at £21 each, the Pop Plush Creamy Lip Glosses are available at Clinique.


Fussy partners with BrewDog to launch "world's first beer-odorant"

Refillable deodorant brand Fussy has partnered with BrewDog to launch a beer-inspired deodorant ahead of Father's Day on 18 June.

Founded by Matt Kennedy, Fussy is a deodorant brand that aims to "banish single-use plastic from the bathroom". The brand's deodorants are certified carbon neutral, with plastic free refills and fully recyclable delivery packaging.

The new beer-scented roll-on brings notes of a pint of Punk IPA, leaving a "bold, hoppy and tropical" scent. It combines Fussy’s natural ingredients and plastic-free compostable refills, with Punk IPA’s planet positive, carbon negative certified credentials.

Priced at £15, the beer-inspired deodorant is available at Fussy.


Anokha enters men's skincare category with new range

Anokha has launched its first-ever men's skincare line, offering an "elevated approach" to men’s skincare which respects the notable differences in their skin.

Described by the brand, men's skin tends to have more sebum as a result of their testosterone production. The new collection targets this, as well as irritation that can be caused by shaving.

The range includes a Rice & Hinoki Facial Cleanser, White Tea & Lychee Toner and Sake & Sandalwood Facial Lotion.

Priced from £46 to £59, the men's skincare range is available at Anokha.
