The millenial pink brand seem to have an item on everyone’s beauty shelves these days.

This month they released their Solution, which is a gentle face exfoliator that combines AHA’s, BHA’s and PHA’s (acids) to remove redness, unclog pores and clear spots.

Although it may sound a little scary, the five star reviews filling the internet may change your mind.

It’s now available from their website for £19.

Tarte reminded us of the lack of diversity in the industry

We’ve all heard of the blogger-approved Tarte Shape Tape concealer so when the brand announced they were making not one but two versions of it as a foundation, we couldn’t contain our excitement.

Anastasia Beverly Hills eyeshadow palette was leaked… again

Creators of the insanely popular Modern Renaissance palette have cooked up another palette of our dreams – but it was leaked online before the brand had announced anything.

The Soft Glam palette is made up of a mix of shimmers and mattes and they range from dusty oranges to soft pinks with a few darker hues in there for good measure.

The brand were devastated that their creation was stolen before they could present it to the world but have now posted on social media that the 14-shade palette will hit stores this March.

We’re pretty sure this will still be a sell-out…
