The latest innovations and news straight from the TL beauty desk.
GOOD AS NEW
Nothing is as annoying as having to throw out dry or tacky nail polish. I’ve been testing the Mavala Thinner, R170, and I’m impressed! Pour 2 drops of the thinner into your nail polish and wait for 20 minutes before painting your nails.

Even if nails are not the main attraction, it doesn’t mean they should be neglected. Keep them in tiptop shape with the latest ORLY Breathable, R175 (18ml) range. The formula is created to give nails the hottest colour, and to look after them with a technology that nourishes and strengthens. Visit www.indiGlow.co.za for more info.
IN LIVING COLOUR
Are you, like me, enjoying the barelythere make-up look? If you want to stand out in a crowd, introduce some colour to your face, either with lipstick or a coloured mascara. The Dior Diorshow Pump ’N’ Volume Mascara, R595,
is your solution. It elongates and pumps up your lashes while adding colour in four new limited-edition neon shades, in Purple Pump 160, Blue Pump 260, Coral Pump 640, and Pink Pump 840.
SKINCARE MEETS DNA
Optiphi and DNALYSIS Biotechnology bring you DNA Skin Plus, which uses your DNA to identify specific skin concerns. The results provide nutritional, lifestyle and products recommendations, and exposes your genetic make-up to help prescribe the most effective treatment and home care plan. Prices range from R2 500–R4 300. For more information email: email@example.com
Anyone who follows me on social media knows how crazy I am about Gucci Bloom, the newest addition to the Bloom catalogue. Created by Alessandro Michele, his first for the brand, it is blended by master perfumer Alberto Morillas. It’s pure bliss!
