Lip slick
Lancôme’s new French Touch lipstick is a moisture packed gloss that doubles as a shiny, translucent lip colour. It has the beauty world buzzing because it contains Pro-Xylane, a plant-based molecule, that can restore moisture to the lips for eight hours. The mouth-watering sheer shades look like cotton candy, only more delicious. From Dhs155.

In for spring
Purple eyeshadow? Really? For some reason Dior’s pastel peepers work. Channel all the romance of February with the nature inspired collection from peach gloss to rose palettes that will leave you freshly blushed. We dare shrinking violets to try the waterlilly nail varnish - the only shade for a spring style sandal. From Dhs111.

Love notes
Romance is at the heart of the new Juliette has a Gun fragrance, Romantina, by cult perfumer Romano Ricci. The musky-sweet scent is composed of white flowers and bourbon vanilla. From Dhs375.

Night magic
Turn back the clock while you’re sleeping with the latest and best anti-ageing night creams. We love La Prairie’s new Anti-Ageing Neck Cream, Dhs875, Dior’s new Capture XP Moisturiser, Dhs440. Estée Lauder’s Resilience Night Lift Cream, Dhs511, and Clarins’ new White Plus HP Sea Lily Enriched Whitening Night Cream, Dhs303.
