It’s a new month, which means new beauty launches.

March is set to see some exciting new drops from major skincare and beauty labels, including Liz Earle, Nars and Max Factor.

While some may be looking to buy lifting and firming body moisturisers, others may be on the hunt for a nourishing moisturiser specifically to be used on the face.

Liz Earle is best known for its Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, but its new Botanical Drops are set to cause a storm with beauty buffs.

The serum absorbs quickly into the skin, and works to brighten the complexion, as well as reduce the appearance of blemishes.

Make-up enthusiasts will go head over heels over the news Nars has extended their cult range of blushers.

Plus there is a new mascara on the block. One of the leading beauty brands, MaxFactor, has launched the first mass market formula for an eyelash primer to achieve long, voluminous lashes.

It can be overwhelming sifting through multiple beauty, skin and haircare products, which is why we have done the hard work for you.

We have tried and tested the new releases, taking into consideration how well they perform and the price point, to suit every shopper’s needs and budgets.

Shop the six best beauty launches this month

Liz Earle Calming Botanical Drops | £26 from Liz Earle | Release date: 25th March

Liz Earle Calming Botanical Drops

“Unlike other serums, the drops have a more gel-like texture. This quickly turned out to be a positive, as the fragrance-free drops made with Egyptian lotus absorbed nicely into my skin.

“Unlike most, the serum wasn’t at all shiny, instead leaving my skin matte and my complexion feeling noticeably tighter.”

Nars Blush in Behave | £25 from Nars | Release date: 15th March

Nars Blush in Behave

“I swear by a light dusting of blusher to give my skin a pop of colour, and the Nars Blush in Behave, which is one of the brand’s 10 new launches, does exactly that.

“It was subtle enough to wear on its own for a fresh-faced look, but is also super buildable for those who want a little more colour.

“Plus, it can double up as an eyeshadow, which is perfect to keep in your bag when you're on the go, travelling, and a definite make-up bag staple.”

Caudalie Vinosculpt Lift and Firm Body Cream | £27 from Feel Unique | Available now

Caudalie Vinosculpt Lift and Firm Body Cream

“I'm always a little sceptical about lifting and firming body creams.

“However, I have noticed after a few uses my skin is soft, feels more hydrated, and a little tighter too. Plus the moisturiser smells divine.”

MaxFactor False Lash Effect Blue Primer | £11.99 from Boots | Release date: 9th March

MaxFactor False Lash Effect Blue Primer

“We all crave long, voluminous lashes, and this primer certainly does the trick.

“Admittedly, at first I was sceptical about layering up my lashes with the blue primer, but I noticed my lashes definitely looked thicker, fuller, and less clumpy when I applied my trusty black mascara over the top.”

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Water Fresh Cream | £44.50 from John Lewis & Partners | Available now

Bobbi Brown Hydrating Water Fresh Cream

“The new hydrating cream is Bobbi Brown’s first silicone-free formula, made up of eight key ingredients including hyaluronic acid and red algae extract to soothe skin.

“The new addition is a very lightweight cream and I found that a little went a long way, which justifies its £44.50 price tag.

“The oil-free cream, refreshed my complexion overnight without a sticky consistency.

“However, the water-based formula does leave your skin with a slight shine, which may not suit every skin type.”

Elemis Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask | £55 from Feel Unique | Available now

Elemis Pro-Collagen Eye Revive Mask

“Protecting the delicate eye contour is important - but remembering to apply cream every evening is easier said than done.

“Fortunately, this hard-working product from Elemis only needs to be applied a few times a week. Smear on a thick-ish layer and leave on overnight to work it's magic.

“Over time, the skin should strength and dark circles should diminish. But as quickly as the morning after use your eye area will feel refreshed and look brighter.”
