1. Givenchy Volume Disturbia Mascara 

Second to moisturizer, mascara is the one beauty product most women can’t live without. But finding your perfect match can take time. Thankfully, the world of mascara wands and formulas is ever-evolving. Our favourite find of ‘Fashion Month’ is Givenchy’s new Disturbia Mascara. It has a glide-on texture and promises to increase volume by 41% with just one sweep, as well as 24-hour hold. Anything that distracts from tired eyes is a win in our book.

2. La Prairie Skin Caviar Complexion 

La Prairie have been earning their beauty stripes infusing products with caviar for over 30 years now. The latest in their luxury line is the Skin Caviar Powder Foundation, which draws upon caviar extract. It has a silky complexion-enhancing texture which begins as a creamy base and sets to a soft finish. It also boasts that all-important UVA and UVB protection. The sleek new handbag-sized compact fit perfectly in the palm of your hand, too. Each one comes with a powder foundation brush. 

3. Fenty Brow Styler 

Your brows have the ability to really frame your face. Meet your new go-to beauty tool, Fenty’s new Brow MVP Ultra Fine Brow Pencil & Styler. The new range from Rihanna’s brand has launched with a collection of 14 longwear, waterproof, smudge-resistant shades – plus, a unique paddle styler brush. According to Rihanna, It gives you the ultimate control and makes it really easy to get any brow shape.”

4. Chanel Le Lift La Crème Main

Meet the latest addition to Chanel’s Le Lift range. Trust us, if your hands could make wishes, they’d wish to be nourished by Chanel. With a formula enriched with shea butter, hyaluronic acid and glycerin, their new La Crème Main is anti-aging, hydrating and skin-plumping. It even has a special ingredient in it – botanical alfalfa – which has results comparable to that of retinol. Hands are equally as exposed to the elements, and carry all the same telltale signs of ageing. This also happens to be the sickest packaging we’ve ever did see – an ergonomically designed black pebble.


5. ByRedo Slow Dance 

Do you remember your first slow dance? ByRedo’s new unisex fragrance Slow Dance takes its name from the teenage dance ritual. Evoking all the intoxicating memories of the adolescent right of passage. Those breathless exchanges captured in a nostalgic fragrance. Overall it’s a mix of spicy and sweet. Top notes of sweet myrrh give a honeyed and smoky sensuality, while the amber is rich and intoxicating. There are also ingredients like labdanum and geranium – which add a fresh feel. Violet, vanilla and patchouli also anchor the irresistible scent.
