ICONIC London Super Smoother Blurring Skin Tint, RRP £27.00,

his stunning super-hydrating foundation base is available in 18 delicious shades [which includes a variety of cool, warm, neutral and golden undertones] spanning from ‘Cool Fair’ to ‘Neutral Rich’ and has been designed to have inclusiveness and diversity at its core. It’s no coincidence this product is one of the brands best sellers and is used by MUA’s and celebrities alike [having been recently been used on Molly Mae Hague during her engagement glam] – the impressive formula seamlessly blends into the skin, blurring pores, dark spots and uneven texture, creating an unrivalled base which has a satin-matte finish with a hint of ICONIC London’s famous glow. Apply with a brush, a beauty blender or simply your fingers for a silky and natural finish.


Noughty Back to Balance Shampoo, £7.99,

Back to Balance tackles oily roots by controlling sebum production. Oily roots can be caused by factors like excess sebum build-up, beauty routines, or hormonal imbalances. Daily shampooing can over-cleanse the scalp, leading to an overproduction of sebum, trapping you in a cycle that costs you time and money without addressing the root issue. With Noughty Back to Balance, achieve a smarter, more balanced scalp by washing no more than every other day. Ease into it by replacing a shampoo with a rinse day (just water) or dry shampoo. Stretch the time between washes incrementally to find your ideal routine.


ICONIC London Lustre Lip Oil, £22.00,

Combining the high shine of a gloss and the moisture of a lip balm, Lustre Lip Oil offers a gorgeous glazed finish for a fresh and instantly fuller-looking pout. This statement product contains a luxurious combination of Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid, which hydrates and nourishes the lips, leaving them feeling ultra-soft and conditioned.

Available in four flattering and deliciously scented shades, ICONIC London’s Lustre Lip Oil uses a non-sticky vegan formula that is comfortable and easy to wear. The unique roller applicator provides a generous and even layer of product which glides over the lips to create a flawless finish. Shades and scents available include:

Sugar Mama – Watermelon (pink)
Queen Bee – Honey (nude)
One To Watch – Pomegranate (berry red)
She’s A Peach (coral)
