6 Products Our Editors Can’t Get Enough Of This Month: June 2023

What we’re loving, coveting and “borrowing” from the Gritty Pretty beauty cupboard this month.

“This winter, I am all about the Immortelle Overnight Reset Serum by French beauty brand L’Occitane. It has a beautifully refined texture that gives my skin a much-needed reset when the temperature drops (goodbye, dryness). Love!”

Senior Creative Producer

“I’m more of a cream blush lover as I usually prefer a dewy finish, so I won’t lie when saying I was skeptical switching over to a powder. To my surprise, the Nars Blush in Dominate is the perfect finishing touch for an evening look, especially in these cooler months! In contrast to its iconic cousin ‘Orgasm’, this shade has a deeper, medium-dark plum tone with a metallic finish. I sweep the product across the apples of my cheeks in an upward motion for a hint of glam.”

Rose Garnett

Beauty Editor

“Bringing life back into my tired eyes, the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Gel-Creme is now a mainstay in my skincare arsenal. Apply morning and night and watch as your eye area immediately appears brighter, more hydrated and smoother. Perfect for under makeup or indulging your skin in some needed TLC, this product has converted me from an eye cream-skeptic to an eye cream-lover.”

Hannah Brooks

Junior Designer

“The McoBeauty Miracle Hyaluronic Tinted Serum is a dewy girls dream product. I love a buildable product, especially when it comes to a foundation and this formula does not disappoint. The finish is buttery soft and light. This tinted serum is actually the ultimate multitasker, mixing skincare with makeup you can expect hydrated skin thanks to the hyaluronic acid inclusion. A must have when shopping beauty on a budget!”

Tanika Rouillon


“150mL of a girl’s best friend…is this non-greasy, non-sticky and ultra-hydrating Clarins Body Firming Gel Lift. No product is going to give you the ultra-toned look on its own (we still have to work for it), but a little help along the way is very welcome. This gel is a plant based product, the green banana extract in it helps to firm the skin, while the coconut hydrates it and the aloe locks it all in tight. It’s essentially a glorified body moisturiser that has the additional perks of targeting those tough areas around the buttocks and thighs. I will be taking this in my Euro-summer pack and never looking back.”

Lilli Corbett

Account Manager

“As a winged-liner aficionado, you’d be hard pressed to find me without one flicked out of the corners of each eye. That said, there are three main things I always look for in a liquid liner: precision, pigmentation and wearability. The Rare Strokes Matte Liquid Liner ticks all these boxes with ease, a dream to glide over your lash line (and beyond), pigmented to perfection and a non-budge formula which can take you from day to night effortlessly. Also sensitive-eye approved & didn’t make my eyes water, which is rare (wink, wink).  Just make sure you shake well before applying!”
