Gary Thompson from @theplasticboy with just landed products

Love a launch? Us too! But it’s hard to pick products to spend your pennies on when you’ve got no idea what they’re like. That’s why we’ve asked Gary Thompson (aka @theplasticboy) to come and test a bunch of our #newness and give you the run down. From fresher than fresh fragrance to fall-themed shadows, there’s a bunch of brand-new beauty buys for you to get stuck into.

Out there skincare

Fancy shaking up your skincare routine and trying something totally new? Dewytree masks have just launched exclusively at Superdrug and we couldn’t be more excited about it… neither could Gary! After dipping into the Korean brand’s beauty masks he’s convinced they’ll leave you with moisturised, intensely hydrated skin. Packed with odd – but beneficial – ingredients like ash and caviar, these super-affordable skin saviours are perfect for any skincare junkie.

Supplement any of these with the Scinic All Day Fine Pore Mint Paste and you’ve got a killer combo going on. This toothbrush-like tool will help rid you of impurities and unclog your pores, leaving an even and flawless complexion. Simply dab some of the clay paste on your face and scrub with the toothbrush-y thing and get rid of all those nasties in an instant.

Lavish lips

Since colder weather is inevitably on its way in, we may as well get into some good habits now. When it comes to the pout, prep is key – and nothing does that better than a good lip scrub. The Max Factor Miracle Prep Lip Scrub is all you’ll need to smooth out any dryness and give your lips an extra hit of moisture.

On to one of Gary’s faves, the Lottie London Lip Foil Sinner. This golden, sweet-smelling tube of goodness is gonna be great for party season, so get it in your beauty bag before it sells out! It’s great as a sheer lip gloss with hella oomph, or as a topper to give any matte berry lip an edge.

The perfect palettes

If you’re a shadow fanatic and ready to get your blend on, these gorgeous autumnal eyeshadow palettes from Revolution will get your heart pumping that little bit quicker. First up is Gary’s personal fave, the Re-Loaded Palette in Newtrals 3. This berry-toned palette with touches of gold is gonna be perfect for the next few months. If you’re more into browns and pinks, opt for the Revolution Re-Loaded Palette in Velvet Rose. Both have a mixture of shimmer and matte shades and boast beautifully rich pigments with a smooth and blend-able formula.

Fresh new fragrance

Looking for a brand spanking new scent? We may have just the thing. Emporio Armani has launched both Stronger With You (for the fellas) and Because It’s You (for the ladies). Both scents are beautifully balanced and great if you’re looking to switch up your juice for the next season.

Gary gave Stronger With You a cheeky spritz and absolutely loved it! Bursting with confident sage at the heart and a deep smoky vanilla base, this scent really is irresistible.
