Laneige BB Cushion_Pore Control, $59.

The BB cushion pioneers have reformulated this smooth operator and besides an improved formula, it also has a new 3D Skin Fit Cushion that allows you to pick up just the right amount of foundation. And it ticks all the right boxes – it controls sebum levels, gives a semi-matte finish, is sweat resistant, and offers SPF50+/PA+++ protection. In 10 shades.

Shiseido Rouge Rouge lipsticks, $46 each.
01 Jul 2016

Shiseido Rouge Rouge lipsticks, $46 each.

If you can’t get enough of red lipsticks, this collection of 16 different shades of red is perfect for you. The creamy formula glides on easily, keeps your pout moisturised and has vivid colour that will last all through the night. 

With half the year over, it's time you did several things - like speed up progress towards those 2016 resolutions (eeks!), reward yourself for six months of hard work with a holiday - and just as importantly, clear out those beauty shelves. If you bought that mascara or eyeliner at the beginning of 2016, you should really be tossing it out now because they usually expire after six months. 

The start of a fresh month also means new products are rolling out, which gives you extra reason to do the whole “out with the old, in with the new” thing. On our must-buy list this month: A moisturiser that's great for oily skin types, the BB cushion we can't live without, a gorgeous illuminating palette that's all the rage in the U.S. right now, the new super sexy Chanel Fall makeup collection, and of course new beauty brands to try.
