It's Xmas, which means it's time to overhaul your beauty routine with festive shades and a whole load of glitter. Add these new releases to your makeup bag now!

Glowgasm Lips: Glittergasm

Charlotte Tilbury is a failsafe when it comes to lipstick (Pillowtalk is a handbag staple), so we’re very excited for this new release. Available in two sparking shades, the pH-powered formula changes colour depending on your natural skin tone to give you a prefect colour match with multi-dimensional sparkle. Wowzer.

Diamonds & Ice Please Frosted Lip Topper

For on-budget beauty, you can’t go wrong with NYX. Popular with beauty bloggers and You Tubers, the brand is excellent quality considering the price point, especially its liquid lipsticks.
