Beauty News: The Products You’ll Want To Buy This October

Melanie Morris welcomes a new expert to the IMAGE team, and road tests some high performance skincare launches.

VERY VICTORIA

While many may sigh over Victoria Beckham’s husband, and also over her clothes, we’ve always had a bit of a thing for the way she wears make-up. So, the IMAGE offices have been aquiver since samples of her limited edition beauty collaboration with Est?e Lauder appeared. The look is sooty and yes, even a bit sweaty. Eyes go dark while skin glows with invigoration and lips are beautifully nude, or go for bold drama. This collection, like Victoria, is small but perfectly formed. Buy it all, now, especially the Morning Aura Illuminating Creme, €82.

IT’S A MATCH

Find out which lipstick is The One for you with Boots?Match Made lip service. Simply pucker up at the No 7 counter and let their smart gadget read your skin and suggest a shade. It’ll make the subsequent selection process so much easier.

DREAM ON

Already a runaway success, Charlotte Tilbury’s first fragrance, Scent of a Dream, €126 for 100ml, is as edgy and feminine as you’d expect, with a quirky, sophisticated edge. Floral ingredients blend with hypnotic molecules that respond to the wearer’s individual chemistry for a bit of added shizzle. She calls it ?fleurotic?; we call it subconsciously sexy.

TRIED AND TESTED

Thalgo’s MCEUTIC Detox Regenerator, €46, is sold as a seven-day detox for skin. Open the box and there is a week’s worth of small ampoules filled with regenerative marine extracts to revitalise a fatigued, lifeless complexion. I applied the serum morning and night on clean skin as directed and noticed a significant improvement by day five; glow was restored and skin felt plumped and nourished. Like a little fuss-free health farm for the face. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a spruce-up by the weekend.

CELL MATE

Always at the vanguard of cutting-edge technology, Shiseido’s latest skincare launch takes on gravity to fight sagging, wrinkles and loss of resilience. The full Bio-Performance LiftDynamic collection of day and night cream, serum and eye treatment jump-starts skin cells to encourage renewal, then blasts them with hyaluronic acid for maximum hydration. The system delivers instant improvements, but real results to a lifted, fresher complexion can be seen within three weeks.

STOP PRESS

Huge congratulations to super-hairstylist Darren Lacken from Crow Street Collective, who won the IMAGE Award at the recent Wella TrendVision. A massively popular session stylist from a successful salon, Darren joins IMAGE as our go-to expert for tips, trends and howtos. We’re beyond thrilled, as not only has Darren got outstanding creative vision, but he’s also got a wicked way with words. Prepare for hair to come alive on these pages. Darren won with an updated pudding bowl ?Purdey? (remember Joanna Lumley’s iconic 1970s ‘do?) that screams winter-luxe 2016.
