ARE YOU READY FOR THIS JELLY?
Drugstore beauty maven, Rimmel London, has unveiled its Ultimate Jelly collection, a range of irresistible-to-touch, wobble-tastic products inspired by the K-Beauty jelly-textured product trend. This must-have skin effect has made its way from Asia onto the catwalks of Europe and the US, with recent runway shows being dominated by gloss-finished faces and shimmery high-shine eyelids. Adding more bounce to your life, the new range of blushers, highlighters and glitter gels have weightless, cooling formulas that flood the skin with moisture. Totally customisable, this new generation of feather-light sensorial textures can be layered and combined for endless standout looks. Dab on for a dewy finish that lasts.
TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL?
The Korean beauty trend is in continuous expansion (much to our joy!), and we can now welcome Korean skincare brand Too Cool For School to the UK. Too Cool For School is an artistic cosmetic brand focused on creative experimentation and contemporary culture. It believes in quality and uniqueness, conceived and designed in New York City. The artwork for the first artist collaborative packaging was simultaneously created in London. Today, Too Cool For School is one of the most sought out brands in South Korea, setting new standards and advocating artistic expression in beauty culture.
