Inspired by a Monet-like garden filled with shimmering water and lush blooms, these three new limited edition lipsticks from Hermès are meant to bring a little light to your makeup routine. Acting like watercolours, the formulas look bright but go on with a glossy, transparent finish in shades of peach, orange and pink. The three limited edition tubes designed by Pierre Hardy (who is also the mastermind behind the brand’s shoe and jewellery collections) come packaged in the brand’s trademark orange box and can be refilled with existing lipstick hues (or new ones to come.)
Klorane introduces sustainable shampoo bars
French pharmacy favourite Klorane is extending its best-selling mango butter and oat milk shampoo range, which are both ideal for dry hair, to include more sustainable bar formulas. Free of silicone, sulfate-surfactants (the ingredient that creates lots of lather and bubbles but can be extremely harsh on the skin and hair), the bars hold up the same effective formulas as the originals, but without the excess packaging. Both are great for adding hydration to lacklustre locks, but the Ultra-Gentle formula with oat milk works wonders to treat a dry scalp for softer, shinier hair.
A luxe new balm from Guerlain perfect for slugging
Guerlain’s new Abeille Royale Intense Repair Youth Oil-in-Balm is the most luxurious answer possible to your new slugging routine. Its combo of cica and beeswax butter effectively protect your skin’s moisture barrier and lock in water molecules while you sleep or brave the elements (or indoor heating.) It contains 95 per cent naturally-derived ingredients, including sustainably-sourced, concentrated blackbee honey from Ouessant Island (the scent is incredible), an island off the coast of Brittany, which functions as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and is recognized as a uniquely pollution- and pesticide-free environment.
Oribe’s new haircare line for battered strands
Plagued by weak, broken strands from colouring, heat styling, or just intense daily styling? Enter, Oribe’s new Hair Alchemy collection. Made with a unique combo of plant proteins, bio-fermented bamboo leaf, green tea, hyaluronic acid and chia seeds, the formulas claim to penetrate the hair shaft to help strengthen your hair from the inside out. It also works to protect brittle ends (between trims!) and build elasticity to prevent further breakage. Now, if only there was a support group for flat iron addiction.
Shea Moisture improves its popular shea butter line
Fans of Shea Moisture’s much-loved shea butter lineup can now look forward to their hair lapping up more effective hydration (and it often needs as much as it can get this time of year) thanks to the whole range being re-vamped with a more effective combo of moisturizing ingredients, along with its namesake organic raw shea butter. To extend your sleeker and more conditioned results between washes, the brand is also dropping a new leave-in which smoothes your strands and keeps frizz at bay for longer, so you can keep drying shampoos to a minimum.
In a surprise twist, the beauty trends out of Paris Fashion Week were arguably the month’s most pared down of all. Instead of delivering over the top glam, the city of lights’ message for fall entailed various levels of chic undress when it came
