THE LANCÔME BROWN THOMAS EF­FECT

Last week we re­ported the news of the new Lancôme launch of Ad­vanced Génifique Yeux Youth Ac­ti­vat­ing Cream, €52, which joins the best-sell­ing Génifique range. And this week there’s more news from the French beauty brand, and it’s an ex­clu­sive beauty of­fer with Brown Thomas na­tion­wide. Buy two prod­ucts (one to be skin care) and you will re­ceive a gift worth €127. The gift in­cludes make-up and cleansers, plus a 15ml day and night cream from a choice of two ranges, Rén­ergie (40+) or Ab­solue Pre­mium (50+). The of­fer ends on Septem­ber 21. Avail­able while stocks last.

SAY­ING SAYŌNARA TO ANY SPOTS OF BOTHER

Fash­ion con­scious and with price points rel­e­vant to its younger mar­ket, Essence make-up is a huge seller here in Ire­land. And this month they’re mov­ing into skin care, again with a fo­cus on the needs of its cus­tomers with so­lu­tions for con­trol­ling shine and break-outs. Pure Skin is a range that in­cludes lots of prob­lem solvers, tack­ling is­sues such as ex­cess se­bum, blocked pores, black­heads and spots. Choose from cleansers through to spot creams, anti-spot BB cream and pu­ri­fy­ing nose strips. Ar­riv­ing in Pen­neys and phar­ma­cies this month, prices €1.89-€5.49.

A LIT­TLE TIP­PLE

Here’s a great story for your Sun­day. We all like Marks & Spencer wine – the brand uses red pinot noir grapes for their sparkling and rosé wines. So that ac­counts for the juice, but what about the rest of the grapes, the skins specif­i­cally? Well, for the last few years, M&S has worked with the Univer­sity of Leeds on the ex­trac­tion of an­tiox­i­dant pow­er­house resver­a­trol from the grapes. This is hugely ef­fec­tive in skin care, fight­ing age­ing and im­prov­ing skin tone. Rather than let it go to waste in the wine-mak­ing process, M&S have cre­ated a nat­u­ral and quite lovely range from it called Pure (Su­per Grape). Prices from €7-€27. The Michael Kors counter in Arnotts is a must-see. The de­signer’s love of Cal­i­for­nian style is in­fused through­out the beauty col­lec­tion; the prod­ucts, from gloss to tan, are a de­light to use. They’re cat­e­gorised into three fe­male types – sporty, sexy and glam, with colours cor­re­lat­ing to each look. Nine new pol­ishes have also been launched. There’s only one prob­lem with the eye pal­ettes from Bobbi Brown, the col­lec­tions are re­ally wear­able but at some stage you will have to leave one be­hind in or­der to get a new one. C’est la vie, as they say, so what about this new pal­ette? It’s a stun­ner; a two-tier col­lec­tion of 8 shad­ows, with fin­ishes rang­ing from creamy matte to rich metallics. The shades will work in many com­bi­na­tions on any eye colour.

Smokey Nudes Eye Pal­ette, €58, Bobbi Brown coun­ters na­tion­wide

MICHAEL KORS Nail Col­lec­tion, €20 per pol­ish, Arnotts only
