2 new fragrances

Lancôme has launched not one but two new perfumes this month. Inspired by the Lancôme Rose that features on all the brand’s products, Parfait de Rôses and Rôses Berberanza combine the scent of the rose flower in two ways, to create fragrances with very different personalities. Parfait de Rôses has a sweet delicate freshness, while Rôses Berberanza has a deep scent with hints of the Orient. Each one also has a matching candle. Dh820, available at beauty counters nationwide.

Unicorn Eyes

Unleash your inner unicorn with Tarte’s Make Believe in Yourself eye and cheek palette. The pastel-toned swatches have everything you need to recreate Instagram’s favourite unicorn beauty trend. If, like me, you have no idea where to start it even comes with a step-by-step guide of how to get the magical look. Dh145, available at Sephora

30-minute facial

The Nail Spa has launched a new Express Facial menu. Each treatment lasts just 30 minutes so you can even pop in on your lunch break for a relaxing half hour. Choose from a selection of four treatments – Hydrate Me for dry skin, Nourish Me for deep cleansing, Bright Me for improved skin tone and Youth Me to prevent anti-aging. Prices start at Dh180 and will be done in-chair so you can even get your mani-pedi at the same time. Available at all The Nail Spa locations.

MAKE Beauty is here

American make-up brand MAKE Beauty has launched in the UAE. The no-frills beauty brand, which hails from New York City, collaborates with real people from around the world to create ranges that you will really want to wear – rather than following trends. The collection focuses on timeless products that you need for every day. So if you want the no-make-up look or skincare to give you that natural dewy glow this one is for you. Many of their pieces have multiple uses including my favourite, the Universal Stick (Dh100), which can be used on lips, cheeks or as a highlighter. Available now at Harvey Nichols Dubai.

Kim vs Kylie

Kim Kardashian will go head-to-head with her sister Kylie when she launches her own make-up line this month. The reality star has unveiled KKW Beauty and announced via her Instagram account that the first launch will – not surprisingly – be a collection of cream contouring products. The Crème Contour and Highlight Kits will come in four shades for different skin tones – light medium, dark and deep. Kim has also confirmed that later in the year she will be launching a new perfume under the KKW brand. For more info visit
