Fall for the trend
The summer is almost at an end, and we begin preparing for the holidays. Have fun

Slim and radical
The new Rouge Pur Couture Slim Velvet Radical matte lipstick by Yves Saint Laurent is absolutely my new favorite item in my makeup bag. It is velvety, long-lasting and very comfortable to wear. The extra concentrated pigment allows you to use just a thin layer for excellent cover, and the special square bullet helps define the cupid bow without the need to bring out the lip pencil. Formulated with oils, the smooth texture is a joy, and the lipstick doesn’t bleed into the fine lines. There are 10 ravishing shades. I wish I could have them all, but if you have to choose, there’s no more elegant color than the YSL red. NIS 160. Available at April beauty stores.
While you are sleeping
Clinique has introduced a Clarifying Do-Over Peel. The new home peel, which is gentle but effective, is perfect for city girls. The peel improves the skin’s texture by removing dead skin cells, dirt and excess sebum, rendering revitalized skin. It also promotes new skin cells and collagen production and closes open pores. According to Clinique, the new peeling also helps remove fine lines, leaving the skin smooth and radiant. It contains a 32% concentration of acids and other active ingredients. A week into the new routine using the peeling, the skin looks smoother and healthier. Use at night after washing the face with soap. NIS 185. For more information, visit www.clinique. co.il.

No-nonsense brand CeraVe, my granddaughter’s favorite, has launched a new hydrating foaming oil cleanser that will surely be added to her cosmetics bag.

Bergamot and pistachio
The first in the new season’s scents, Pure Jasmine by Trussardi for women was created by Violaine Collas and Julie Masse. The new scent hits all the right chords, with top notes of salty pistachio, bergamot and neroli; middle notes of mugane (molecules that enhance the jasmine scent), champaca and jasmine; and base notes of vanilla, sandalwood and patchouli that add to the fragrance’s exceptional persistence.

With specially designed blades, the shaving kit also has a feature for shaping eyebrows. Don’t say I didn’t tell you. NIS 19.90
