4 Beauty Products That Are Back From the Wilderness


by IMAGE
11th Feb 2015

Here’s a sentence we never thought we’d utter past the 80s: mousse is back! Once the sole preserve of scrunching your spiral perms (don’t act the innocent), these days our foaming friend can be put to much better use: creating weightless volume, movement and shine. Use before you blow dry for a fuller, swishier finish – we love the Schwarzkopf Osis+ Grip Volume Extreme Hold Mousse, which does just what it says on the tin.

Shop it here.

Pencilling your lips on, so they look bigger than they are? Another blast from the past we thought we’d left behind. But thanks, singlehandedly, to one Ms Kylie Jenner, the overdrawn lip is a trend that’s made a comeback; she’s also the reason for MAC’s Soar lip liner flying out of stock. As an alternative, choose any shade close to your natural lip colour; may we suggest Rimmel’s East End Snob as a passable dupe?


Shop it here.

Sali Hughes uses hers as a styling aid, while Hillary Clinton rocked them through the noughties and beyond. But when’scrunchies?appeared on the catwalk at?Chanel’s AW14 ready to wear show, they were officially back in the game. Everyone from Missoni to Marc Jacobs is now in on the action; try River Island for an affordable take on the trend. (Note: overdrawn lip liner with hair mousse and a scrunchie? Possibly one trend too far.)

Shop it here.

Another product that’s firmly back from the beauty wilderness? Toner: what was once viewed as an old fashioned relic has become a firm favourite in our skincare routine. Today’s offerings are wildly varied – our toner wardrobe includes softening lotions, hydrating potions and clarifying products. Our favourites? Acid toners – call it the Caroline Hirons effect, but we’re mad for these chemical exfoliants; they shift dead skin cells and leave skin brighter and blemish free. The Clarins version is both gentle and effective; shop it here.
