SHINE ON

In the last decade there has been a seis­mic shift in hair care. In the early noughties we were ob­sessed with sil­i­cone for split ends and in­creased shine, to­day we know that nat­u­ral oils of­fer sim­i­lar shine but with bet­ter con­di­tion­ing for health­ier hair in the long term. It started out with us­ing sin­gle oils on the hair lengths and now there are dif­fer­ent for­mu­la­tions de­signed for spe­cific hair types, Garnier, L’Oréal and Kéras­tase be­ing the brands to check out. Choose to in­clude oils in your rou­tine via sham­poo, con­di­tioner or masque (L’Oreal Mythic Oil range, €16.30- €21.40) or as a post-dry­ing treat­ment oil with Garnier’s Ul­ti­mate Blends (€10.99) or Kéras­tase Elixir Ul­time oil blends, €34.

CITY CEN­TRE STYLING

There’s a new beauty des­ti­na­tion in one of your favourite Dublin stores – in Pen­neys on Mary St where Love Beauty will open its salon doors to of­fer af­ford­able beauty treat­ments with a prod­uct line to follow in 2015. What’s on of­fer? Ex­pect lots of lash ap­pli­ca­tions and tint­ing, gel and acrylic nails, thread­ing and brow treat­ments. Prices are great – a full set of acrylic tips costs €22, while an eye­brow and eyelash tint com­bi­na­tion is just €12. It’s pedal to the metal for au­tumn, metallics are ev­ery­where. Me­tal­lure is a full col­lec­tion from Ca­trice which in­cludes two mar­bled shad­ows, lu­mi­nous bronzer, three shades for nails, two for lips, and this multi-pur­pose liq­uid. The shade is Daz­zling Dark, a black with sil­ver shim­mer run­ning through it. Thanks to its duo ap­pli­ca­tor it is used as liner on lids and as a top­coat over black on lashes for an ex­tra bit of sparkle. There’s some­thing very chic about the squared can­is­ter pack­ag­ing on th­ese new Mois­ture Stains as Revlon moves away from the usual cylin­dri­cal tubes. And per­for­mance-wise, they live up to their prom­ises – you get lips drenched in high­lyp­ig­mented colour, no stick­i­ness, and mois­ture with added vi­ta­min E and aloe vera. When I heard of this new gel colour from the brand I couldn’t wait to try it. It of­fers up to one week chip-free colour, two coats of colour set like gel once the top coat is ap­plied and cured by nat­u­ral light (no UV/LED needed), and it’s cleaned away with reg­u­lar pol­ish re­mover. This hot shade is Wine Stock, and 17 more are avail­able. The top coat also costs €9.99, or €14.99 for duo packs with a colour and top coat.
