Must-haves hitting UAE beauty counters now

Mac Viva Glam Nicki Minaj Lipstick,  Dhs90
Ricky Martin lip conditioner, Dhs77
This year Nicki Minaj joins a long line of celebs who have collaborated with campaigning beauty brand MAC to spread positive health messages to the youth of today through lipstick. We applaud her and her signature shade in eye-popping pink. Not one to be left out, even Ricky Martin has got in on the act with his own lip gloss. Bless.

INFO: Available at MAC counters throughout the region.

Sodashi Organic Green Tea Salt Therapy Exfoliant, Dhs277
This luxe brand has just landed at Talise Spas across the region. Ingredients are top notch, and the packaging is understated chic, but you may be more in need of smelling salts than green tea salt exfoliant after seeing the price.


Nyx Collection Noir Power Black Liner, Dhs35
This nifty little powder liner glides on with the precision of a pencil, but has the soft effect of eye shadow. Two wonderfully smoky eyes coming right up!

INFO: Available at Beautybay stores, Oasis Centre in Dubai, Mushrif Mall in Abu Dhabi and Sharjah City Centre in Sharjah.

Cnd Bicycle Yellow, Dhs40
This yellow totally pops. Want something more mellow? Add a layer of clear pearl sheen. Want to bejazzle the world? Add a clear glitter vanish. We love it all ways.

INFO: Available at selected nail bars, including branches of NStyle and Sisters Beauty Lounge.

Lancôme Rénergie Éclat Multi-Lift Tinted Face Cream,  Dhs375
Skin seems to drink in this nutritious skin tint that Lancôme has dubbed the “instant lifting illuminator”. It moisturises cells and enhances complexion, and like most Lancôme skincare products it feels marvellous to wear. We are lifted, hurrah. You will love this!

INFO: Available at Lancôme counters across the region.

D&G Bouquet Collection Crayon Intense Eyeliner in Lilac,  Dhs100
When it comes to this season’s trend for rainbow makeup, D&G is our favourite cosmetics producer. Colourful, playful and very du jour, their Crayon Intense collection boldly goes where other eyeliners don’t – all the way through the rainbow from acid green to pale lilac. Makes us feel like skipping, ladies. Seriously.

INFO: Available at Paris Gallery.
