Stuck in a lipstick rut? Believe it or not it happens to most of us! When you find yourself pairing just about every outfit with a red or pink lip, it’s time to try something new! We’re loving this lavender lippie in 281 from Inglot (R139) because it’s fresh and exciting without being too daring. Whether you wear it to update your simple white tee or clash it with a blue or green outfit, this lippie is bound to change your look for the better.

Your summer holiday might be over, but that certainly doesn’t mean that everyone’s favourite season is! We’re loving this cute naval print bikini by Brazilian swimwear brand, Agua Benedita, not just because it’s so cute, but because we’re really not ready to pack away our swimsuits yet. The bikinis range from between R 1100 and R 2500, which yes, is pricey, but sometimes when you find something you look that good in – you can’t help but find a way to treat yourself!

 

Available from Agua Dreamz 142 Buitengracht Street, Bo-Kaap, Cape Town.

Art class just arrived on our beauty doorstep! Today we’re loving essence Trend Edition Colour Arts (available at Clicks and Dis-Chem), a collection of 20 pigments that can be combined or used on their own to create a huge palette of colours for your lips, eyes and nails.

The idea is that you apply the respective moist base (there is one for eyes, for nails and for lips) then apply the pigments over the top. Yes, really like art class!

Thankfully, we’re not left to our own devices on the application front either because they have also launched a Multi Tasker silicone applicator that can be used on eyes, lips or nails. And once you’re done, you can just clean it with make-up remover.

There is also a set of Mixing Jars so that your can mix and store your favourite combinations of pigments.

The range is kind on your purse too. The pigments are R29.95 each, the lip base R23.95, nail base R19.95, eye base R23.95, Multi Tasker R16.95 and set of 2 Mixing Jars R16.95.

We always refer to testing products as ‘playing’; we’re so excited about this range because it really is playing. Not sure you can be trusted to apply the pigments on your own, they’ve created a great tutorial as well.

The range is a limited edition, and will only be around until the middle of March, so get your hands on yours quickly!

Warm weather is great for your mood, but your foundation? Not so much. Today we’re loving Lancôme La Base Pro Fluid (R475, an oil free primer that creates a perfectly smooth canvas on which to apply your foundation. Lancôme’s exclusive Elasto-Smooth™ technology makes it possible for it to refine the skin’s texture and cleverly diffuses light to reduce the appearance of imperfections. It also helps your foundation apply easily and evenly, and makes sure it stays put until you remove it. A summer must have, we think.

Has too much time spent in the sun and sea left your scalp dry and itchy? If you’re worried you’ve suddenly got dandruff, don’t be! It’s really easy to damage your scalp, especially if you forget to put on sunscreen or wear a hat – so those bits of flaky skin could just be from too much sun. Moroccanoil’s Dry Scalp Treatment (R260) is formulated to relieve irritation and restore scalp embalances. A lightweight formula which is rich in argan oil and lavendar, it relieves itchiness and reduces flakiness, so you don’t look like you’ve got dandruff (phew)!

 

Available at select salons, or contact Twincare for more info (011 305 1600).

So although the holidays have come to an end for many of us, that doesn’t mean summer is over! So, before you get glum about heading back to ‘real life’, think about all the endless days of summer left. We’re loving these Prada cat-eye sunnies (R2450) from Sunglass Hut, simply because they’re a reminder that we can continue to hit the beach in style. And while our purses are still feeling the effects of the festive season, there’s no harm in simply putting these on your lust list – for now at least!
