Christ­mas beauty prod­ucts launch in mid to late Oc­to­ber so many limited edi­tions may be sold out by the time you hit the shops in De­cem­ber. Ones to watch out for are the sets at Aveda coun­ters na­tion­wide. Eleven sets are avail­able, priced €20-€80; they com­bine all the most popular prod­ucts in hair, bath and body. The an­nual can­dle is there too (€35) and the new Beau­ti­fy­ing Com­po­si­tion Oil makes an en­trance in the bath and beauty gift sets along with Cleans­ing Oil and Body Mois­turiser. The sets are gift wrapped in hand­made lokta pa­per, which sup­ports co­op­er­a­tives in Nepal. Go check out the of­fer­ings be­fore they’re gone! Fans of Ar­mani’s Sheer Fab­ric, Eyes To Kill and Eye & Brow Maestro, de­signed by revered makeup artist Linda Can­tello, prob­a­bly al­ready own one or two Lip Mae­stros, high gloss lip lac­quer with in­tense pig­ment. 400 is now an iconic red, 404-406 are three new reds to add to your wish list, each based on spicy ver­sions of the orig­i­nal. ‘For the ad­ven­tur­ous woman and the man who loves her’ is the tag line for this great new uni­sex fra­grance from Lady Gaga. If you are a lit­tle mon­ster you will like this scent cre­ated by Ur­sula Wan­del of Gi­vau­dan. It opens with a burst of lime, the cen­tral heart is white vi­o­let and the fi­nal trail is a sen­sual one based on leather. Over­all, the scent is spicy. Worth a look if you are a Gaga fan.
