New Season Beauty Edit | Beauty Junkie London

We caught up with Beauty Junkie London to find out all about new season launches that will give your beauty routine a bit of an update. These products will get you all set for the new season of cooler weather, cosy nights in and of course a whole lot of dark lipstick… Everything in this post is available to Click & Collect to your nearest CollectPlus Point too, making online shopping super easy and convenient.

Ok, so the dark lipstick isn’t compulsory but it is the signature look in many ways for the Autumn months so I wanted to include two gorgeous new luxury launches in the world of lipstick from Bobbi Brown and Giorgio Armani. Both have new lip ranges out but I’ve picked matte options from both as the matte-lip trend is still going strong. But the newest matte lip launches are managing to be both matte and comfortable to wear – a pretty rare combination previously.

Bobbi Brown Luxe Matte Lip Colour – Crown Jewel (£28 – John Lewis & Partners)

The packaging of this new matte lip range is just gorgeous. A matte update on the Luxe Lip Colour range in both texture and the lipstick casing. The matte gold won me over before I even saw the colour! I picked the shade Crown Jewel as it’s that gorgeus deep purple shade that works a treat when paired with snuggly wooly jumpers – immediately dressing up whatever cosy outfit you can put on to keep warm!


Giorgio Armani rouge d’Armani matte – fatale & kimono (£25 – John Lewis & Partners)

These two shades I chose because as much as it’s nice to have darker lip shades for Autumn/Winter it’s also nice to have more day-to-day subtle shades. Fatale is nude that’s a neutral pink and Kimono is more of a pale mauve. So a slightly more subtle option than a deep burgundy lip.


Jo Malone Honeysuckle and Devana (From £47 – John Lewis & Partners)

This time of year also traditionally sees Jo Malone launch a new fragrance so I couldn’t do a round up without featuring it. The latest Jo Malone scent is Jo Malone Honeysuckle and Devana. The new scent is a bit of a departure for the brand and I think it will go down a treat if you love Peony and Blush Suede. It’s definitely more of a floral with a bit of a kick of freshness to it. It’s not what I’d expect from a fragrance for Autumn but then it will be joining the main collection so perfectly suitable for year-round. If you love a fresh floral then you need to try this.


Bourjois Le Duo Blush (£6.49 – ASOS)

As the weather gets cooler and daylight gets more limited one of the things I notice first is my skin getting a bit dull. To try and perk it up I like to switch a new blusher or cheek shade for Autumn/Winter – replacing peach or pink blushers and bronzer with more rosy toned cheek shades or even warm nudes. Going for more of a ‘natural’ flush look over pops of brighter colours. The new Bourjois Le Duo Blush range is great for this – each one has two shades so you can adapt the colour to suit using either one alone or swirling together (my fave way to use) or of course you can contour with them if that floats your boat. The colours all have a bit of a glow to them too so they add some radiance along with the colour. My favourite is 02 Romeo et Peachette


The White Company Sleep Relax Bath Soak (£25 – The White Company)

This time of year always brings out a bit of an urge to hibernate and the best accompaniment for hibernation is a cosy pre-bed bath. I adore all of The White Company scented products but this new launch is part of a whole range geared around sleep and helping set you up for a blissful night of sleep. As a new mum I can 100% vouch of how much a good night of sleep means and if this luxurious bath soak will help me then I am sold. A blend of chamomile & lavender in matte glass bottle. It smells amazing and will definitely be a step up on your average bath.

Of course all products and retailers featured are available to order for delivery via Collect Plus Click & Collect service so you can have delivered to a local collection point and pick up at your convenience.
