Time for some glam

L’Oréal Paris has launched a new makeup col­lec­tion for the glow­ing hol­i­day sea­son un­der the slo­gan No Makeup, Makeup, or “I woke up like this…” The col­lec­tion in­cludes high­light­ing drops, light foun­da­tion, peachy blush and matte bronzer.

59.90 per item.

Glit­ter­ing prizes

Ital­ian fash­ion brand Man­da­rina Duck has launched a new and glit­ter­ing col­lec­tion in time for the New Year par­ties, in­tro­duc­ing the iconic col­lec­tion MD20 LUX in a new and cel­e­bra­tory edi­tion. The new line of bags gets the glit­ter thanks to a unique weav­ing tech­nol­ogy that weaves metal golden threads to­gether with the other threads, giv­ing a metal­lic ef­fect to the fin­ished prod­uct. The bags in the col­lec­tion have ad­justable straps, in­side and out­side pock­ets and zip­pers; all the bags are very light­weight and ex­tremely durable. NIS 622 to NIS 800.

In­no­va­tive skin prod­ucts

The for­mula in­cludes 10% gly­colic acid that re­verses sun da­m­age as well as 5% botan­i­cal hyaluronic acid, de­rived from the seeds of Cas­sia An­gus­ti­fo­lia, which re­fines skin tex­ture by smooth­ing fine lines and wrin­kles.

Nice and soft

Good news for those of us who still shave our legs (and other parts of the body). Schick has launched a new ra­zor with built-in Aloe Vera en­riched soap. The In­tu­ition Sen­si­tive four-blade ra­zor foams, nur­tures and shaves in one stroke, mak­ing the whole process shorter and much nicer, avoid­ing skin ir­ri­ta­tion and leav­ing skin soft. NIS 24.90, avail­able at Su­per­pharm stores.

Magic drops

Af­ter cel­e­brat­ing the mir­a­cle of oil for eight days, I was re­minded of a mir­a­cle oil pro­duced by HL cos­metic labs. The Magic Drops Re­new For­mula is a serum pro­duced from a unique mix­ture of oils. Rich in vi­ta­mins, the serum el­e­vates the level of hy­dra­tion in the skin, slows down ag­ing pro­cesses and pro­motes a more vel­vety look. The for­mula in­cludes Al­pha Lipoic acid, av­o­cado oil, obliph­ica oil, bor­age oil and vi­ta­mins A and E. Use one to two drops on clean skin be­fore hy­drat­ing cream. NIS

Not for kids

Hot choco­late is one of the good things about cold weather. But the all-time fa­vorite drink is only worth the calo­ries if it is re­ally good. Medi­ocre sim­ply won’t do, and I am very pleased to in­form you that the new Max Bren­ner Cho­co­latta pow­der is very close to per­fect. Made from bit­ter choco­late pow­der, it makes a warm and to­tally grown-up com­fort drink that will make the evenings sweeter and more ro­man­tic. Mix five heap­ing tea­spoons with 90º milk in a cup and mix. For a richer drink, cook 30 sec­onds over low heat. NIS 39.

In a jam

Yes, we are past the dough­nut-fry­ing time of the year, but new and ex­cel­lent con­fi­tures are good for other things as well, and the new col­lec­tion of 778 fruit con­fi­tures are now even bet­ter than be­fore. The fla­vor of the new line, made from a new recipe, aims to be as close as pos­si­ble to home­made con­fi­tures. The line in­cludes four new fla­vors – straw­berry, apri­cot, plum and cherry – as well as one light ver­sion of straw­berry. Made from four in­gre­di­ents only, the con­fi­tures have no preser­va­tives or food col­or­ings and in­clude at least 50% fruit.

Spread the news

Hell­man’s is usu­ally as­so­ci­ated with may­on­naise, but re­cently the fa­mous brand in­tro­duced a line of mus­tards – Di­jon and Di­jon with seeds – that are both very good and keep up with the brand’s good name. En­joy!

Great sin­gle malts

Bal­lan­tine’s whisky, rated No. 1 in Europe, launched its sin­gle malt line in Is­rael last month, in­clud­ing the Bal­lan­tine’s Glen­burgie 15 years and Bal­lan­tine’s Mil­ton­duff 15 years. The new line, says the com­pany ex­perts, is an extension of the brand, which stands for her­itage and in­no­va­tion, of­fer­ing smooth taste and rich aro­mas. The Glen­burgie 15 has fruity fla­vors of or­ange and rich tex­ture with hints of honey, red ap­ples and pears, and a very long, round fin­ish. The Mil­ton­duff 15 has a more flo­ral fla­vors with sweet hints of cin­na­mon, milk choco­late, clove and some licorice. The aroma is rich and fruity with touches of roasted al­monds and a long, warm fin­ish. De­li­cious. NIS 218.

Jack is back

Jack Daniel’s Amer­i­can Whiskey launches a hol­i­day pack­age that in­cludes the Jack Daniel’s Ten­nessee Whiskey Old No. 7 as well as a spe­cial glass, for the price of the bot­tle. Jack Daniel’s is made in the method which be­came the stan­dard for Ten­nessee whiskey, using ac­tive coal made from maple trees that af­fords the drink its typ­i­cal sweet fla­vor. Happy hol­i­days.

In a manly fash­ion

No time is bet­ter for dress­ing up than winter. Now one can take out the nice sweaters and jack­ets and add a few fash­ion­able ac­ces­sories. Lo­cal men’s fash­ion com­pany Ba­gir does it best. Their col­lec­tion ranges from ca­sual to for­mal and in­cludes clas­sic and trendy shirts, jack­ets, sweaters, pants, coats and suits, as well as shoes, belts and other ac­ces­sories that per­fectly fit our weather. This sea­son, try the new line of bam­boo shirts. Bam­boo is known for con­sum­ing less wa­ter than other plants, and the ma­te­rial is soft and nice to the touch, needs less iron­ing, nat­u­rally evap­o­rates sweat and feels al­most like silk. Also look for new knit­ted items and qual­ity coats. Prices range from

NIS 35 for socks to NIS 2,490 for the top-line suits. Avail­able in Ba­gir stores around the coun­try.

New Look

Fin­lan­dia launches a new look to the world­wide pop­u­lar vodka. In time for New Year par­ties, the new bot­tle rep­re­sents the brand’s sus­tain­abil­ity ap­proach, ap­pre­ci­at­ing the con­nec­tion to na­ture. The com­pany an­nounced that the new de­sign took three years to cre­ate – main­tain­ing the brand’s ap­peal while keep­ing the idea of sus­tain­abil­ity. The new bot­tle is eas­ier to hold and pour and is also eas­ier to trans­port – thus re­duc­ing the da­m­age to the en­vi­ron­ment. The new bot­tle is be­ing launched si­mul­ta­ne­ously in Is­rael, Rus­sia and Poland, be­fore be­ing launched in the rest of the world. L’haim!

NIS 65 for 700 ml. and NIS 85 for 1 liter.
