Rock the new rollers
If you – like me – are yet to perfect super skinny, ultra-perfect eyeliner, meet the new class of rollerball applicators. Available in Black Moon, Golden Rosé or Bronze Patina (left), Nudestix Rock N’ Roller Easy Eyeliner Ink (£20, cultbeauty.com) promises glide-on, even lines, while Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Roll’Ink Liner (right, £24, houseoffraser.co.uk) wheels on straight and is waterproof. Take the Carolina Herrera SS18 show as your cue – then rock and roll.
The tools you need for jet lag recovery
After a recent bout of jet lag, I decided that there was only one cure for it – the best products the beauty business could muster to revive my eyes in every way. Olay’s new Eyes Pro-Retinol Eye Treatment (£29.99, boots.com) brings all the line-reducing, plumping effect that we expect of retinol without the irritation or redness. Katherine Daniels Instant Effect Eye Mask (£58, katherinedanielscosmetics.com) is loaded with ingredients that smooth and hydrate – and proves that eye masks are now a ‘thing’ in beauty. After 20 minutes of wearing it, I looked fresher. Keep your tired eyes peeled for Clarins Moisturizing Reviving Eye Mask (£29, clarins.co.uk). A wake-up call for skin, the brand’s latest innovation feels wonderfully cooling. It will be out on 15 April – set a phone reminder now.
This week we’re…
…feeling chipper, thanks to Oh Yeahh! Happiness Lip Balm (£11, harveynichols.com). Not only does it contain ingredients to boost serotonin (your natural ‘happy hormone’), it also comes in melon, red and pink shades that offer a hint of a shimmer.
