Bobbi Brown Limited Edition Surf & Sand Eye Palettes
What they say: There are two palettes in this collection. The Surf eye palette is nude with a touch of ocean blue throughout, while the Sand eye palette contains metallics in bronze and sparkling gold. The palettes feature 8 subtle yet stunning eye shadows each and promise a sheer and intense delivery.
What we say: If you are a Bobbi Brown fan or yet to be converted, this is definitely a collection worth checking out. The packaging is holiday-appropriate with ample colour choice and a giant mirror that comes with the palette. In the Sand palette, the Golden Copper Metallic Eye Shadow is perfect for that Cleopatra look.
Tous Love by Tous
What they say: This citrus-floral-fruity fragrance is a burst of cheer and is touted to be an intensely feminine scent. Pink grapefruit is the strongest accord and it slowly moves into hints of violet flower and sandalwood.
What we say: We call this a fun fragrance that can be worn to a Sunday brunch or a girls-day-out. Complementing the fruits and flowers, tender musk gives the fragrance a sense of wholeness, while smooth sandalwood accords linger on. Brownie points to the delightful packaging, which will push you to make a purchase.
Clinique Smart Custom-Repair Serum
What they say: This smart serum is recognised as Clinique’s new hero product with its capabilities to target repair at key areas of concern. It addresses lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, firming as well as radiance.
What we say: When first applied onto the skin, the serum feels heavy, however it gets absorbed in a jiffy and you are left with a velvety smooth finish. We recommend using it twice a day after your three step (cleansing, toning, moisturising) routine. Don’t forget to layer it with sunscreen. For the serum to be more effective, use appropriate massage techniques.
L’Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil
What they say: Formulated with more than 50 percent almond oil, it is feather-light and promises smooth and supple skin. The ideal combination of almond oil and camelina oil provides comfort to the skin.
What we say: This skin oil is an absolute indulgence. We recommend applying it on damp skin to cover more area easily. What you can expect is intensely nourished skin, a slight sheen and a gorgeous scent.
Bed Head TIGI Sugar Shock
What they say: Perfect for creating tousled waves, this spray adds volume to hair without tangling. It also accentuates waves and curls while cutting down on frizz and demonic fly-aways.
What we say: Salt spray comes with a minor glitch a.k.a dryness. However, Sugar Shock contains sucrose which is not overly drying. Use it to scrunch up the ends of your hair to define and enhance those curls. This one’s a beauty essential when prepping for a beach party.
