Melanie Morris on winter’s latest wonders.
KAT VON D DAY
Fans of Kat Von D’s distinctive make-up will be thrilled to hear they don’t need to travel to get their hands on those signature Studded Kiss lipsticks, €20, Tattoo Liners, €20, and gothic Metal Crush shadows, €20. The full collection is now available in Debenhams stores, just in time for party season.
Part beauty product, and part objet d’art, the YSL Beauté Le Cushion Encre de Peau is a spongy, cushion-based foundation encased in a stunning black, monogrammed case. The formula is long lasting, matte, with good coverage, so one sweep takes effect while touch-ups on the move have never been so easy, nor looked so glam; €45, exclusive to Brown Thomas until 2017.
Who knew that distilled magnolia leaf could increase collagen production by over 200 per cent? Dubbed as “liquid gold”, this ingredient features significantly in Decléor’s latest Excellence skincare range of day cream, €90, eye cream, €68, night balm, €68, mask, €60, and oil serum, €82. It’s designed to combat ageing by combining science with highly active, nourishing ingredients.
Anyone prone to blushing and facial flushing will be overjoyed to hear of SkinCeuticals’ latest launch: The Phyto-Corrective Masque, €60, rapidly, and temporarily, lowers the surface temperature of the skin, to combat redness. Also great for post-treatment, post-workout and post-sun exposure calm-down, the formula is packed with green botanicals, and skin-plumping hyaluron ic acid.
