AT HOME MANI STILL REIGNS
Gel nails have dominated not only the LiB office, but the general nail market for years. That being said, the at-home mani still has a place in the hearts of many beauty lovers worldwide, which has influenced the launch of high-tech polish brand, Peacći. From the founder of world renowned professional polish, The GelBottle Inc, the new brand will deliver a huge range of 100% vegan and cruelty free creative hues – 150 to be exact – with long-lasting results that won’t negatively impact the strength and health of the nail. The new polish brand will be available from July.
THE QUEEN OF THE BEAUTY HALL
Luxury department store, Harrods, (one of our faves – and not only for the lavish food hall) has revealed the first phase in its three-part refurbishment that will see it reign as one of the largest beauty destinations worldwide. Expanding its beauty haul by 53%, the extra space will reflect the evolving nature of the world of beauty, championing new and emerging brands by offering innovative propositions for all genders, ages and backgrounds. The further developments will also focus on skincare and incorporate masterclass and treatment room spaces.
MAKE THE CHAMPAGNE POP!
BECCA Cosmetics has revealed the launch of its new Champagne Pop Collectors’ Edition. Inspired by the holy grail of highlighters – the cult classic Champagne Pop hue – the collection will shine a light on the products ideal for a soft, everyday highlight. The five product strong collection includes: Glow Body Stick, Glow Silk Highlighter Drops, Gloss Gloss Champagne Créme and Shimmering Skin Perfector Collector’s Edition. The collection has landed at Boots and will be available nationwide from July.
DAMN GIRL, GREAT LASHES
We all love Too Faced’s Better Than Sex Mascara, but the brand has now unveiled its latest formula – Damn Girl. The creamy mousse formula has been formulated with a blend of whipped melting waxes, designed to give immediate volume without weighing down your lashes. It lengthens and locks in 24 hours of smudge and flake resistant curl.
DISCOVER YOUR CITY
Jo Malone London (one of my favourite fragrance brands, may I add) has announced the launch of its City Editions, eight signature candles embodying the scents of various cities around the world. Each candle is printed with a hand-sketched illustration inspured by the angles, edges and idiosyncrasies that make each city unique. The collection includes: London Edition (Pomegranate Noir), Paris Edition (Velvet Rose & Oud), Dubai Edition (Myrrh & Tonka), Hong Kong Edition (Peony & Blush Suede), Shanghai Edition (Wild Bluebell), Seoul Edition (Blackberry & Bay), Tokyo Edition (English Pear & Freesia) and New York Edition (Lime Basil & Mandarin). Exclusive to Jo Malone boutiques within the city it was created for, and at the online boutique for that region.
