How we tested the best new makeup products

We’ve been busy testing new launches, with the exception of the ones we are still waiting on. We wanted to find affordable, mid-range and high-end options and only shared the products that we predict will create a buzz.

Why you should trust me

I have always been obsessed with all things beauty, and I am lucky enough to be sent products to test for my job as a lifestyle journalist. I am also alerted by PR teams about new launches and big announcements and I attend press previews to find out more about new product drops. I aim to update this article as often as possible to keep you informed of the new buzziest launches.
