The luxury lipstick range: Hermès Beauty Rouge Hermès Matte Lipstick in 46 Rouge Exotique

“New to NET-A-PORTER this month is Hermès Beauty’s coveted makeup range. If you’re already a fan of the brand’s silk scarves and ‘Birkin’ bags, you’ll love the lineup of ultra-luxe lipsticks. Offering matte and satin finishes inspired by leather, the collection includes 24 shades chosen from 75,000 silk swatches, ranging from dusty-pink nudes to bright oranges. For a bold take on evening glamor, we love the Rouge Hermès Matte Lipstick in 46 Rouge Exotique for a vibrant coral red. Alternatively, try the Satin in 85 Rouge H, which is a perfect-for-fall shade of rich burgundy. Pair both with the brand’s Rouge Hermès Lip Pencil in Universal, and apply them with the Lip Brush for ultimate precision. This is lipstick luxury at its finest.” Alice Casely-Hayford, content director

The instant neck-to-toe transformer: Charlotte Tilbury Charlotte’s Magic Body Cream

“Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury created her famous Magic Cream to instantly transform models’ skin backstage, using a potent blend of plumping, firming and smoothing ingredients. This version of the cult formula offers the same powerful results from the neck down – and the finish doesn’t disappoint. You’ll see tighter, more toned and assuredly luminous skin, plus the product is spiked with caffeine to help shift body-specific concerns like cellulite and stretch marks. Make sure you really work it into limbs using upwards sweeping motions, too. This will encourage blood flow and lymphatic drainage, producing even more visible results.” Newby Hands, contributing global beauty director

The high-tech-tool must-have: Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare DRx SpectraLite EyeCare Max Pro Eye Mask

“If you’re already a fan of Dr. Gross Skincare’s highly touted LED face mask, then you’ll likely know the dedicated eye iteration, too. Now featuring updated technology, the SpectraLite EyeCare Mask comes supersized (and with added lights) to cover more of the delicate skin around the eyes, including the ‘11s’ and your brow bone, in addition to crow’s feet and the under-eye area. Together with amber and red LED (which target both the superficial and lower layers of the skin), this next-gen version also emits infrared light for even deeper skin penetration, a supercharged production of collagen and elastin and for better absorption of the products you apply after using it. Leave it on for just three minutes a day and you’ll see a smoother, plumper eye area in six to eight weeks.” Malena Harbers, acting beauty editor

The iconic moisturizer upgrade: La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Cream and Luxe Cream Sheer

“If you haven’t tried the original La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Cream, it is a must that is infused with special anti-aging caviar extracts, which give nearly instant lifting, firming and tightening results. Now, its skin-smoothing effect has been boosted with the addition of a unique type of caviar extract that’s packed with more than 300 nutrients, which work on strengthening the skin and reversing the signs of aging. The Luxe Cream Sheer version – a lighter texture that’s great for combination skin or for layering under your SPF during the day – has also been supercharged with the new extract for even better skin benefits.” MH

The ultimate eye reviver: RéVive Peau Magnifique Eye Concentrate Nightly Youth Renewal

“If you want a 360 approach to improving the skin under and around your eyes, this peptide-powered eye concentrate from RéVive is it. The formula firms skin, targets crow’s feet and the ‘11s’ between the brows, deflates bags, hydrates, evens out discoloration, and you can take it over eyelids to smooth and tighten crepey areas. To do this, it uses all three of the brand’s signature renewing, firming and volumizing peptides, together with a gold colloidal peptide to boost collagen levels, de-puffing caffeine, brightening daisy extract, plus a pineapple enzyme for a little gentle exfoliation – all delivered via a drone-like system to get these ingredients exactly where they’re needed. A definite win-win.” Abigail Routley, senior buyer

The next-level makeup organizer: Saint Laurent ‘Gaby’ Quilted Leather Cosmetics Case

“If you like to keep your makeup staples extremely organized, consider this chic, quilted leather case from Saint Laurent your next beauty essential. It’s spacious enough to hold full-sized makeup items, as well as bulkier skincare and foundation go-tos. There are also two zipped pockets to hold smaller items, such as your eye and lip pencils, or to offer easy access to your favorite makeup brushes. While it’s a brilliant size to travel with, the signature gold logo and slightly patent-leather finish will really elevate your vanity at home, too.” NH

The decadent hand and body duo: Baobab Collection Body & Hand Lotion and Hand Wash Gel in Paris

“These beautifully scented body and handcare formulas from Baobab Collection spin a simple handwash into something far more luxurious. The scent alone is an intoxicating mix of mimosa and linden, with all florals sourced from Grasse in France. Plus, in an ode to the streets of Paris, the hand-blown glass bottles are decorated with an Eiffel Tower-inspired design. I especially love the fast-absorbing texture of the lotion – and how chic these bottles will look on my vanity display.” Katie Jennings, beauty buyer
