Big beauty news: Charlotte Tilbury has launched on ASOS. With the current Covid situation, this is major for the beauty industry for so many reasons. Firstly, the way we shop for beauty has changed (forever, who knows?!) and the days of perusing the beauty counters are long gone. Beauty counters can’t give out samples, they can’t colour match you, and you can’t try products on – so pretty much the only thing you can do is repeat purchase something that you know you’ll love. And when you can do it from the comfort of your own sofa, even better!
ASOS expanding beauty is major because it means it’s easier than ever to shop your favourite brands, and if you have ASOS Premier, they’ll be with you the next day.
Here are our top beauty buys on ASOS right now:
From the iconic, suits-all, perfect nude Pillow Talk lipstick and your-lips-but-better Pillow Talk lip liner (wear this with a dab of lip balm over the top for the perfect daily, low-maintainance nude lip) to Sam’s new favourite Airbrush Bronzer (re-fillable and available in 4 shades) – Tilbury has launched on ASOS with a tightly edited capsule collection of the best-sellers.
BABYLISS BOUTIQUE SOFT WAVES HAIR TONG
For loose, beachy. boho waves nothing beats this wand. I find wands so much easier to use than tongs without the clip. I’ve had my pair for YEARS.
BARE MINERALS COMPLEXION RESCUE TINTED MOISTURISER
The perfect lightweight summer base that evens out any redness so it looks like your skin but better; I wear Bamboo, Gemma wears Vanilla.
BECCA UNDER-EYE EYE BRIGHTENER
We don’t think this product needs any more introduction from us, safe to say we’ve talked about it’s amazingness at erasing dark circles enough. Gemma and I wear Light-Medium, but ASOS also stock Medium-Dark for deeper skintones than ours.
All our favourites are here, meaning you can top up without having to even venture into a shopping centre. From Intensive Serum Foundation to Pot Rouge, Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick in Taupe to Art Stick in Rich Nude – ASOS have it all.
The beauty buyers at ASOS are swatting up and collating a diverse range of brands for all hair types – including these brilliant natural hair products and hair tools for afro hair.
Our fave luxury French brand, we’re so happy to be working with them this year – but we didn’t actually realise that you could buy their best bits on ASOS – like the VinoPerfect Radiance Serum and Dark Spot Correcting Moisturiser that Sam has used up to the last drop, and the Glycolic Peel Mask that Gemma swears by.
CLINIQUE PRETTY EASY EYELINER PEN
An oldie but a goodie, we both swear by this for all of the liquid liner beginners.
DR DENNIS GROSS ALPHA BETA GRADUAL GLOW PADS
An industry secret, swipe the pads over your face for a realistic looking tan. The double-duty formula also contains a blend of gentle acids too, so your skin is softly buffed for a smooth and even looking glow.
For super-luxe looking skin, everything that you need is here. From award-winning Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, and Sam’s swear by Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (hello babysoft skin), to Gemma’s desert island essential, Superfood Oil and Peptide4 Night Recovery Cream Oil (the most amazing smell ever) – all the biggies are here!
You’d never think it, but ASOS even stock Estee Lauder. Our hero products from the brand are Advanced Night Repair (goodbye tired skin) If you have a new mum in your life, treat her to a bottle of that (every new mum needs a bottle by her bedtime) teamed with the heavy-duty, big guns of the concealer world – Double Wear Stay In Place Radiant Concealer.
Times have a changed and we can’t just nip to Boots on our lunch hour in a speedy two minutes these days buy you can still stock up on your fave budget buys here: case in point, our fave Garnier Miceller Water – they have the pink bottle in a giant 700ml size – but they also stock a brilliant multi pack of 3 bottles for £12.
With everything from hair dye to lipgloss, you’re totally covered here. The Flash Winged Eyeliner is a super inky black and comes with a brilliant liner stencil for first time users (you might have seen us demonstrate it on one of our lockdown lives!) or try Sam’s fave £10 budget mascara.
The hair salons may be opening but just in case we’re ever in this situation again, stock up on this iconic hair treatment to get you and your colour through any hair disaster!
True story, Gemma always goes back to this £6 liquid liner. It’s not for liner novices because the inkwell pot is a bit tricker than the felt pen format, and you need a steady hand, but for a blackest-black liner that does not budge, this is your gal.
This brilliant brand for afro hair has won all of the awards, and now you can stock up without having to head to the shops.
If we go into lock down again, this brand has you covered. From our fave brush cleansing machine that takes 20 seconds to the at-home gel removal kit – life saving beauty hacks!
