The Buying Team’s Stand Out Beauty Launches Of 2022

The Buying Team’s Stand Out Beauty Launches Of 2022
2022 has been quite the year for Space NK in terms of new launches and brands. Charlotte Tilbury Beautiful Skin Foundation kicked it off, before the arrival of Rare Beauty, which was shortly followed by JVN Hair, and that was only February. With so many new brands and beauty products, we asked the Space NK buying team for the one launch that stood out to them for 2022.


Phantom Volumizing Glossy Balm, $47.00

Hourglass launched its Phantom Glossy Balm in spring, and it has been a permanent fixture in my makeup bag ever since. It feels like a balm but offers the finish of a lip gloss without any of the stickiness. ‘Trace’ and ‘Haze’ are my go-to shades day-to-day, but I’m looking forward to trying out the punchy red of ‘Thrill’ for the party season.” – Abbey Parkinson, Assistant Buyer


JVN Hair

Complete Instant Recovery Serum, $14.00

“If you battle with flyaways and frizz and haven’t tried JVN Complete Instant Recovery Serum, then you absolutely need this haircare product in your life. Jonathan Van Ness nailed this formula; it’s hydrating yet so super light it doesn’t weigh your hair down.” – Helena Drozd, Fragrance, Suncare and Haircare Buyer


Rare Beauty

Soft Pinch Liquid Blush, $23.00

“We knew that Selena Gomez’s beauty brand would be successful, but I don’t think any of us were prepared for just how successful it was going to be. The Soft Pinch Blush has been a top seller since February, ‘Happy’ in particular, and I can’t see this changing any time soon.” – Julie Philip, Makeup Buyer


Summer Fridays

Sheer Skin Tint, $42.00

“Does anyone wear full coverage foundation anymore? Since Summer Fridays launched its Skin Tint, I have been hooked by the featherlight texture and healthy, natural-looking finish. It’s called a skin tint, but I’d say it’s very similar to a tinted moisturiser and it is perfect for anyone wanting to tap into the no makeup makeup look.” – Michelle Tulley, Assistant Buyer



Multi-peptide Moisturizer, $27.00

“Space NK has had a lot of really good skincare launches this year, so it was quite hard to pinpoint just one launch. I think for me, it would probably be Naturium. I really love what the brand’s doing, I think Susan Yara is fabulous and I’ve enjoyed trying out the different products. They’re ingredients based, but they’re fully formed formulas, so I don’t have to play skin chemist in my bathroom. My current favourite is this moisturiser, but I implore you to go and explore the full range.” – Victoria Wiseman, Senior Buyer


Melanin Haircare

Multi-Use Softening Leave In Conditioner, N/A

“We launched Melanin over the summer, but I’d been speaking to the brand for at least six months prior and have been using this leave-in conditioner for over a year now. It’s become a permanent fixture in my haircare routine and is genuinely game-changing for textured hair.” – Charlotte Giddeon Powell, New Brands Buyer
