A round up of all my favourite beauty launches December 2016.
What: Angel Étoile des Rêves by Thierry Mugler
Why I Love It: Thierry Mugler launches a limited edition reinterpretation of the legendary Angel fragrance for AW16/17. Literally translating to “Eau de Parfum for the Night” the signature scent was made to be worn after hours; it is enriched with large quantities of soft white musk to ‘provide the illusion of silk lingerie and cashmere blankets’. You may all remember Angel’s famous star-shaped bottle, which first launched in 1992, but the new limited edition perfume boasts a stunning new packaging, complete with a vintage-looking atomiser pump and a deep blue, glass bottle adorned with stars and moons.
What: Missoni Eau de Parfum Gift Set
Why I Love It: Missoni launched a new self-titled perfume, which now comes in a fab gift set, complete with a shower gel, body lotion and the Eau de Parfum. Known for its playful colour-ways, prints and patterns the aesthetic of the Missoni brand is totally encompassed in this pretty little gift set!
What: Rimmel Fresher Skin Foundation
Why I Love It: With a complexion as oily as mine, it’s very rare that I find a new foundation that I’ll actually wear. But this new SPF15 Fresher Skin foundation contains natural mineral powders that help absorb excess oil, making it a really light-weight, breathable formula. I’ve worn it a few times and I absolutely love it! For someone who hates the feel of foundation on their skin, this is perfect and I can’t recommend it enough!
Why I Love It: In short, if you don’t know about Bio-Oil then you’ve been living under a rock. The multi-use skincare saviour can be used to treat just about anything, from sunburn, stretch marks and scars to dehydrated and dry skin.
What: Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil
Why I Love It: Last month, GlamBox (which you can subscribe to for as little as Dhs71 per month) sent their subscribers the new Phyto Replenish Oil from Dermalogica. With a blend that includes orchid flower and chia seed oil, this formula not only works to strengthen, hydrate and shield your skin, but it can also be applied before your foundation to create a luminous dewy finish.
What: Lush Gift Sets
Why I Love It: Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or – depending on when you’re reading this – Christmas time, Lush have you covered for all occasions. Their super cute gift boxes not only come packed with an abundance of deliciously-scented goodies, but are also wrapped better than I’ve ever wrapped anything in all my 25 years of ribbons and fancy paper.
