This month’s 10 tried, tested and trusted - places, beauty and lifestyle products that I’m loving at the moment...
Once in a while, a product comes along which makes you look at lipstick in a new light. Such is the case with the arrival of this innovative Rouge-Expert Click Stick. A 3-in-1 lip colour with a clever ‘drop tip’ shape, it allows you to precisely define your cupid’s bow like a liner, while the intense pigment gives you the richness of a lipstick - plus it comes with a cushioning, nourishing texture of balm. In short, it’s perfect for creating an immaculate pout in one fell swoop. The handy click-up applicator means there’s no danger of your lipstick snapping in two either - hurrah!
100% natural and non-toxic, Tata Harper’s Volumising Lip and Cheek Tint delivers a beautiful, lit-from-within flush of colour whilst actively anti-ageing your complexion. Enriched with line-lessening Spanish lavender and lipoamino acid technology, the active-packed formula works to ‘plump’, smooth and refine your skin’s texture, while granting a long-wearing, beautifully dewy cheek and lip stain. Available in three, universally-flattering shades.
YSL’s solution is Top Secrets: an innovative skincare range for makeup lovers that offers multitasking products for your complexion.

Applied throughout the day, it offers a burst of hydration-on-the-go to leave the skin looking radiant.
Developed by perfumer Olivier Pescheux, Diptyque’s ‘Eau des Sens’ fragrance is described as “a piece of music radiating from the skin.” It combines top notes of Orange Flower with a heart of Juniper Berries, ending with a spicy and woody Patchouli base. A perfect gift for those who love citrus and floral scents, it’s beautifully housed in the label’s signature ‘Oval’ packaging.
The first lash-lifting mascara by Dior. Enriched with a unique lifting formula, Diorshow Iconic perfectly sculpts, stretches and curls lashes with impeccable hold and exceptional definition.

The complexion is even and radiant with vitality. Skin is incredibly soft, supple and moisturised.

Give your tote a personal touch with George, one of our new season ‘lovebugs’. Made from ethically sourced ostrich feathers, this gold-plated keyring features multi coloured dots and a pair of signature moveable eyes. Fasten it at the gold-plated lobster-claw clasp to bring a touch of character to your handbag.
Enriched with emolliating plum oil, this luscious cream caresses as it melts into the skin. The lasting floral bouquet of ‘J’adore’ adorns your radiant, nourished skin. Like a jewel in your powder room, the beautifying body cream is presented in a luxurious glass jar adorned by a beautiful ‘J’adore’ cap reinterpreting the famous Maasai necklaces, which have adorned ‘J’adore’ bottles since its creation.
Dyson engineers set about finding a better way to look after hair. It wasn’t a lotion or potion - it was a motor and so Dyson have entered the world of beauty with this ground breaking addition. The Dyson Supersonic’s technology allows for faster, more precise drying, while producing minimum noise due to acoustic silencers. By measuring the air temperature 20 times every second, it controls heat distribution to reduce damage and protect your hair.
