2. Bobbi Brown Brightening Finishing Powder – Porcelain Pearl:

Brightening Finishing Powder - Porcelain Pearl

In addition to their already fantastic range of bronzers, blushers and illuminators, Bobbi Brown have released a brand new illuminating powder. The cute colourful powders in the new Porcelain Pearl shade give skin a healthy looking glow without the OTT Midas finish, and they also contain Mulberry, Grape and Scutellaria extracts to brighten skin and give a smooth finish. The compact contains a handy mirror – perfect for on-the-go application. RRP £40.

3. Cowshed Mood-Enhancing Perfume Oils

A brand new collection of roll-on perfume oils that not only smell great, but also enhance your mood! They have a whopping seven scents to perk you up whatever your mood, including Knackered Cow (lavender, chamomile and eucalyptus – perfect for post-exam rejuvenation), and Horny Cow (rose otto, sandalwood and vanilla – a Valentine’s Day must-have). All the scents are made from essential oils so are gentle on skin whilst providing a long-lasting scent. Like any perfume, just apply to pulse points, and enjoy! RRP £18 (10ml).

4. NIP + FAB CC Cream 

The younger sibling of BB creams (so 2012 don’t you think?!), Colour Control or Complexion Corrector creams have been released by NIP + FAB. Set to take 2013 by storm, these brand new creams from Korea are designed to provide colour control, hydrate, protect from daily sun exposure with SPF30 and create a natural, youthful appearance. The ingredient Soline provides 24-hour hydration, whilst oat extract tones and firms the appearance of skin. Plus, the cream has added illuminating particles to give grey winter skin a much needed glow! Available in ‘light’ and ‘dark’ shades for £14.95.

5. Nails Inc. Bling It On Leather & Skulls

The latest look fresh from the catwalks is leather effect nail varnish. Yes, you heard right, LEATHER effect. Nails Inc. have released a fantastic set (available in black or tan) that comes complete with stick-on, reusable skull embellishments to complete the rock-chick look. Much easier to apply than the previous Caviar manicure nails trend, the polish is applied like any other with the option of adding on your skulls afterwards. There’s even a tutorial video on the Nails Inc. website – it couldn’t be simpler! The matte effect means that your edgy nails will also be low maintenance. Hurry though – this is a limited edition set, available soon!
