4 Beauty Must-Haves For March

Melanie Morris celebrates spring with some brilliant new beauty finds.


?Get Glossy

After seasons of suede velvet and matte lip textures, it’s time to welcome back bold splashes of colour in mouthwatering, high-shine finishes. Luxury lip gloss returns, heralded by Rouge Coco Gloss, a collection of 24 full- beam shades created by Lucia Pica, Chanel’s global creative make-up and colour designer. For extra impact, layer with a topcoat for added glitter, colour volume or intrigue – there are three options to choose from, €30 each, available?now.

Lust-Have

 

The new Shiseido 7 Lights Powder Illuminator, €42, offers perfect low-fi highlight, and a fine, healthy glow to skin without drenching faces with the glitter ball effect. A perfectly proportioned compact, designed so you can select tones of one shade (peach/bronze/gold), or go for the full-on complexion-enhancing kaleidoscope. It also comes with an excellent brush for broad spectrum sweeps.

Nocturnal Pursuits

Fans of Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate (of which there are gazillions) will be over the moon to hear of a line extension. Created
to eliminate the drag of double-cleansing, their soon- to-launch Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil, €32, is super-lightweight, suitable for all skin types, and designed to sweep away every trace of make-up, from mascara to mineral base. What’s more, by treating skin like with like, an oil-based cleanser is kindest and most effective for long-term benefits. And it smells sensational.

Flower Power

Hands up who can open their fridge to find little other than milk, prosecco and a pharmacy full of eye gels, setting sprays and sheet masks? Origins? new Flower Fusion masks are well worth adding to your stash. Entirely eco-sound (even the mask is made from natural bamboo), each is formulated with floral extracts and essential oils. Apply, lie back for ten minutes, and return to the world with a glowing complexion. There are six to choose from, €6 each.
