FLUT­TER­ING THOSE LUSH EYE­LASHES

Splin­ter­ing mas­cara is a com­mon com­plaint, with chips and flakes ir­ri­tat­ing the eyes. This hap­pens fre­quently if the liq­uid is old, has dried or has a poor for­mula. Rim­mel may have fixed this with their new Won­der’full Mas­cara with ar­gan oil. The oil from the pro­tected North African ar­gan tree will be familiar as it is pop­u­lar in hair, skin and body care. It’s recog­nised as a su­per mois­turiser with great restora­tive prop­er­ties, and lashes may be stronger with Ar­gan. Rim­mel prom­ise zero clumps, a light­weight feel and great def­i­ni­tion from Won­der’full Mas­cara. Try it for your­self, €9.99.

BRONZER THAT’S NEARLY GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT...

Plan­ning some bronzer shop­ping this month? Buy wisely be­cause contoured cheek­bones are a must-have for AW 14 so choose a prod­uct that will see out the sum­mer and glide you through to the colder months. Here’s a su­per sweet sug­ges­tion – Bour­jois are re­leas­ing this month the de­li­cious choco­late­per­fumed Délice de Poudre Duo, €10.49. It’s a medium matte shade of bronzer scented with dark choco­late for fan­tas­tic sculpt­ing on the face, and an il­lu­mi­nat­ing high lighter that smells of white choco­late to add ra­di­ance. Easy to use and sweet to wear.

SOFT­EN­ING LO­TIONS

We are be­com­ing more in­flu­enced by Asian skin trends, where tighter pores, even skin tone and re­duced sun dam­age are top con­cerns. It’s not unusual for an Asian woman to have a six- or seven-step beauty rou­tine, and el­e­ments of that are creep­ing into Euro­pean cos­metic bags. Soft­en­ing lo­tion is one to look out for, al­ready sold by Estée Lauder, MAC and L’Oc­c­i­tane. The lo­tions are used af­ter cleans­ing to re­move any resid­ual make-up. They also con­di­tion the skin with hy­dra­tion, prep­ping it per­fectly for a serum and mois­turiser. An ex­tra step, yes, but worth it for how soft your skin will feel. It’s hard to be­lieve An­gel is 22 years old this year, and 19 years since Jerry Hall was the face of the scent. This year her daugh­ter Ge­or­gia May Jag­ger is be­ing launched as the new An­gel icon for the French scent. The star-shaped bot­tle of An­gel has long been pop­u­lar and the scent was the first Ori­en­tal gour­mand, an in­tox­i­cat­ing blend of berg­amot, red fruits, pra­line, patchouli and vanilla. The world’s lead­ing beauty sub­scrip­tion ser­vice is three years old this month, sell­ing a box ev­ery 12 seconds in 10 dif­fer­ent coun­tries. Glossy­box brings 500 in­ter­na­tional brands to sub­scribers doors, of­fer­ing five of the best global beauty prod­ucts ev­ery month. Ex­pect limited edi­tions later this year. La Vie Est Belle, the iris scent with a patchouli heart, was launched two years ago with ac­tress Ju­lia Roberts. In that time, the orig­i­nal l’eau de par­fum has been joined by three in­ter­pre­ta­tions, each with a del­i­cate new ac­cord. This new in­tense par­fum is a con­cen­trate, so it’s a rich and sen­sual scent to use spar­ingly – spe­cial oc­ca­sion scent­ing at its best. Yes, life is beau­ti­ful.
