Today we’re loving this canvas shopper from Scotch & Soda (R899.95).

Not exactly a lipstick, not quite a gloss, and so much more than a simple lip stain, Vernis a Levres by Yves Saint Laurent holds the secret to a whole new you – and to your new fabulous pout! Available in 12 shades, it costs R365, is oh-so-easy to apply and stays on for hours. From hot pink to dark red, there’s a colour to suit your every mood – and the bright gold packaging looks as fab in your handbag as it does on your dressing table. Get yours from selected Edgars, Red Square and Stuttafords stores.

There is something deliciously retro about the new shimmer mist from L’Occitane. Put it on your dressing table and you’ll instantly feel like a ’50s film star, misting her face before a wildly glamorous party. It has a delicate peony fragrance and a few squeezes of the pink puffer will leave you with glowing, gently shining skin – ideal for over makeup or even on your chest and shoulders for those evening dress nights out. Get yours for yourself or for a friend for R450.

Even though the dreaded “W” is upon us, there are still a few hours in a few days left where we can still get away with bearing our, um, bare legs. If, like me, you would rather die from heat stroke than expose your lilly whites in public, then you’re going to love Ofra Comsetics Red Carper Kolour Body Glow (R565.)

 

Not only does it deliver a gorgeous natural-looking tan immediately, it dries relatively quickly (5 mins), and does not rub off on clothes! And in case you want to go back to your natural state, it also washes off in the shower.

 

But the best part about it is (yes, there is another part) that it hides imperfections – we’re talking about bruises, veins and stretch marks. Sound too good to be true? We thought so too! But with the likes of Ellen Pompeo, Jessica Simpson, Christina Appelgate and Denise Richards being huge fans, who are we to argue?

 

Available from selected agents countrywide. Call 011 786 9027 or mail info@ofracosmetics.co.za to find your nearest one.

The A/W2012 catwalks were all about opulence, from black and tarnished gold brocade dresses at Dolce & Gabbana, to the private station where models arrived on their own steam train at Louis Vuitton, it seems sumptuous excess is back this season!

 

While full Louis Vuitton or Dolce and Gabbana outfits are out of most people’s budgets, you can still give your own nod to the trend, by bejeweling your nails in decadent metallics.

 

LCN’s limited edition nail colours, offering of 4 winter shades, is one of the best collections we’ve found! In Demand is a mid-range grey; In Touch is a glittery gunmetal; In Focus, a burnished bronze; and In Touch is a very deep bitter chocolate shade (R350 for the set of 4, or R110 each.) For more info, visit www.lcn.co.za.

 

So, now you can get your opulent look on without breaking the bank!

Today we’re loving Rimmel’s new mascara, Scandaleyes (R89.95)! This macara packs a serious punch for little, limp lashes, with a wand will make your lashes as bold as the orange tube it comes in.

The brush is called the MaxDensity (sounds scary, I know), and it is 50% larger and denser than their other brushes. It’s been designed to be more flexible, so you can coat even those hard to reach lashes in the corners.

It also conatins a triple collagen and keratin formula which promises to give you a whopping 12 times more volume than regular mascara – now if that isn’t a lot, then we don’t know what is!

One item we’re seeing absolutely everywhere? The clutch, of course! The perfect item to add some GLAM to a hot pair of denims or pretty dress for a night out, we’re absolutely loving this sophisticated leather studded clutch (R1417) by local brand Gruber & Whale (available from 36boutiques.com.) The studs add the perfect amount of detailing, while the colour is simple enough to pair with just about anything!

While cleansing your skin may not be the most glamorous thing in the world, a gorgeous glow certainly is! How to get it?

Enriched with anti-irritant camomile and vitamin E, it cleanses, soothes and replenishes, which means you can be sure of soft, supple cheeks come rain, shine, frost or wind.

Today we’re loving these military-inspired ankle boots from Billabong (R699.95), because although we’re suckers for a  great pair of heels, sometimes your feet need a bit of a break! These are the perfect pair of flat booties to slip your feet into when it’s cold outside and you can’t possibly think of putting them into anything else. Pair with a sexy pair of jeans and a beautifully tailored blazer to look super-stylish!

Do your flat roots get you down? Well we’ve found the perfect solution, L’Oreal’s latest addition to the Elvive range, Volume Collagen.

 

Volume Collagen contains (unsurprisingly) collagen, which is not only great for plumping-up your skin, but also for adding some oomph to your hair too!

 

The formula contains clever ingredients that start protecting your hair from within, helping to repair any damage and deeply hydrate the hair shaft, giving it more lift. And since it helps put your hair in a better condition, it means that you won’t have to spend as much time blow-drying it, which in turn, means even less damage. What’s not to love?

 

Both the shampoo and conditioner are available now in major retailers (R39.95 each for 200ml; and R59.95 each for 500ml.)
