August beauty buys: This month's best new makeup, skincare and fragrance buys

Life might slow down slightly in August, but the beauty industry remains as hardworking as ever.

From Lush to Lipstick Queen, there’s a plethora of new skin, hair and cosmetic launches hitting shelves this month, tempting us to part with our hard earned cash once again.

Looking for an affordable, yet affective foundation? Head to Barry M. L’Occitane’s got your haircare sorted and Elemis is here to give your skincare regime a boost with a brand new Peptide4 line-up.

But, perhaps most excitingly, Lush has finally created a collection of shower bombs for those of us who blimmin’ love the brand but hate having baths.
