Another month of Aussie winter has come and almost gone, and honestly, we’re counting down the days ’til we can feel a little more warmth. As we watch almost everyone on our social feeds whisk themselves away to sun soaked Europe and America, we can’t help but try to find ways to keep our beauty regimens up to scratch in anticipation of spring and summer.

This means investing in beauty picks that will keep what’s left of our 2022 summer glows from withering away with deeply hydrating moisturisers, serums and gentle cosmetics. From a surprisingly nourishing face cream to an award-winning concealer that’s helped maintain flawless skin, ahead, the POPSUGAR Australia team have weighed in on the best beauty products that they’ve used in July for a mid-winter boost.

Emma Lewisham Supernatural Race Oil Vitamin A - beauty editor picks july 2023
Emma Lewisham Supernatural Face Oil ($145)

Obsessed with this Supernatural Face Oil ($145), I’ve been applying it nightly for the last month, and I’ve noticed such a difference to my pigmentation and skin texture. It feels brighter, more radiant and lush.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter
Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter ($65)

I love the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter ($65) for when I’m having a good skin day. As the name suggests, it blurs the skin and gives me that “barely there” healthy glow just like a filter. It’s perfect for no-makeup makeup days, as it doubles as a light coverage skin tint and a highlighter when the light hits the high points of the face.

NYX Epic Wear Semi-Permanent Liquid Eyeliner - beauty editor picks july 2023
NYX Epic Wear Semi-Permanent Liquid Eyeliner ($11.33)

I’ve been wearing winged eyeliner since I started wearing makeup and thanks to my oily eyelids, I’ve never found an eyeliner that won’t run or smudge or fade at some point throughout the day. That is until I tried the NYX Epic Wear Semi-Permanent Liquid Eyeliner ($11.33). You could literally swim in this at the beach and maintain a perfect cat eye when you emerge from the water (Ariel eat your heart out). But beware! One false swipe and you’ll be fighting demons trying to get it off.

MCoBeauty Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C Face Serum ($35)

I’ve been loving the MCoBeauty Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid & Vitamin C Face Serum ($35) so much! It’s super hydrating and sits really nicely under my moisturizer and makeup.

Drunk Elephant Sili Body Lotion - Best Beauty Products july
Drunk Elephant Sili™ Body Lotion ($38)

Loving this Drunk Elephant Moisturing Cream ($38) sick! My skin always gets so dry in winter, especially being inside all day so loving using this on my skin daily and nightly.

Kosas Revealer Concealer - Best Beauty Products july
Kosas Revealer Concealer ($48)

I saw that the Kosas Revealer Concealer ($48) got voted as the “Best Concealer 2023” in the Mecca Beauty Awards and had to get it. I swear my eyes look less puffy and my bags have gone away slightly. It’s also has a super smooth and easy-to-apply texture and blends in with my other products so well.

SkinCeuticals Daily Moisture
SkinCeuticals Daily Moisture ($138)

My previous day-to-day moisturiser still left my skin feeling crusty and dry, especially during these colder days. I was told to try the SkinCeuticals Daily Moisture ($138), and I’m really happy with the results. My glow is back. Of course, I was sceptical at first because I thought it looked heavier than the creams I’ve used in the past, but it’s surprisingly lightweight. (Side note: the price tag may look slightly scary but it’s well worth the investment IMO.)

Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush
Rare Beauty Soft Pinch Liquid Blush ($41)

On the days when I feel like adding a bit of extra colour to my face, I’ll always reach for my Soft Pinch Liquid Blush ($41). You can put on as little or as much as you like, and it brings a little something something to your beat — full glam or natural. My go-to shade is Virtue, and I love how buildable it is without looking cakey or over the top.

Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta® Universal Daily Peel
Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta® Universal Daily Peel ($149)

No other product has given me visible results the next day like the Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta® Universal Daily Peel ($149). It’s definitely on the pricier end of beauty products but I think it’s so, so worth it.

Corsx One Step Original Clear Pad
COSRX Original Clear Pads ($39)

I have recently been using the COSRX Original Clear Pads ($39), and they are amazing – basically a one-step pad for exfoliation and gentle toning. It’s been a really nice addition to my routine, and they are not drying! 10/10

Corina Aquino, Client Solutions Manager

Rom&nd Juicy lAsting Tint
Rom&nd Juicy Lasting Tint ($15.21)

I use the Rom&nd Juicy Lasting Tint ($15.21), and it’s been my ride-or-die since I found it. It’s so long-lasting, and like many lip tints, the colour is buildable. This K-beauty brand has formulated this product with such nourishing ingredients that it looks dewy once you apply it, and it’s pigmented enough that it fades beautifully throughout the day.
