This matte formula blends into the skin to cover redness, dark circles and illuminates the skin. The Retouching Face Pencil can be purchased at John Lewis from September and is available in nine skin-tones for the perfect match.
Dolce & Gabbana, Wild About Fall AW16
Dolce & Gabbana introduce Wild About Fall, their Sicilian inspired AW16 collection. Representing the Sicilian landscape, the collection comprises bold shades of green, brown, berry and gold. There’s a Nail Lacquer in Ebano and Raspberry, The Shine Lipstick in Chocolate, Sheer Shine Lipgloss in Desert, The Blush in Strawberry and The Smooth Eye Colour Quad in Enchanting Fall. This collection harnesses all the tones of autumn and is a make-up bag necessity this season.
Omorovicza and Equinox, Oxygen Booster
Omorovicza has teamed up with Equinox to launch its new Oxygen Booster, breathing new life back into tired skin with a shot of revitalising liquid oxygen. Equinox clients can experience the exclusive ‘Ultra Oxygen’ facial in the tranquil setting of the gym’s in-house spa. Combining the benefits of oxygen with Hungarian Moor mud, this treatment lifts, firms and plumps the skin. Oxygen molecules cool and sooth the skin in the form of a water-gel, resurfacing wrinkles for a smoother and firmer appearance as the facial muscles relax and refresh.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris, Petit Matin and Grand Soir
As we step into autumn, Maison Francis Kurkdjian Paris launches two new fragrances. Petit Matin is a woody, floral and citrusy scent, conveyed by the energy of litsea cubeba from Indonesia and lemon from Calabria with floral notes of hawthorn and lavandin. Grand Soir is a woody, oriental scent that harnesses soft vanilla warmth of benzoin and cistus labdanum. Two brand new, fresh and seasonal scents.
