May’s glittering beauties

Monday, 4 May 2015

We cannot contain our excitement this month – we keep gazing over at May’s new launches! It’s multitasking products wrapped in beautiful packaging, and scents inspired by ballerinas, that get us going this May. Clinique launches their new Pop Lip Colour and Primer – each shade matched to the outer packaging. We hope you get excited too!


Repetto EDT 50ml, R795
Pretend to be a ballerina with this graceful first scent from Repetto. Inspired by ballet shoes, this pretty pink bottle is wrapped with a beautiful pink ribbon around the neck of the bottle, which echoes the identical ribbon that is worn by the famous Carlotta ballerina.

LCN Chromatic Diamonds Hand Cream, R180
A pretty rose gold tube of cream, infused with soy oil and bees wax that is intensely nourishing. We love the subtle scent of gogi berry. It also doubles up as a shimmer body cream, with delicate gold particles to give your complexion a glow.

Clinique Pop Lip Colour and Primer, R280
A shade for every lip, this luxurious, weightless formula glides on so easily. It leaves our lips feeling hydrated with a gorgeous pop of true colour. We love the bright packaging – and the fact that you know exactly what colour you are reaching for from your lipstick stash.

Avene Eau Thermale Spring Water, R149.95
From the banks of the Avene Spring in France, this natural spring water is the best cure for sensitive skin. Spritz it on for anything from post shaving / waxing, during travel, post surgery, eczema or atopic dermatitis. You can even use it throughout the day to freshen up.

Morgan Taylor Midnight Masquerade, R123
Inspired by the mystery of a masquerade ball, this polish collection features deep, sensual colours. Some with glitter and some just plain, they’re all totally gorgeous!

Catrice Absolute Rose Eyeshadow, R89.95
What a beautiful palette for under R100. Matte, shimmer, nude and purple. This is the mix you will find in this stunning travel- friendly compact. Use them solo or team them up.

Smashbox LA Lights Blendable Lip & Cheek Color, R320
Create the perfect glow, the perfect highlight or even just add the perfect flush of colour to your cheeks and lips with this double-duty product. We love this pink shade for our lips and cheeks. Super soft formula with a built-in buffing sponge for blending, it makes make-up on-the-go so much easier. Our new go-to beauty product!

Versace Eros Pour Femme EDP 50ml, R1080
Eros Pour Femme opens with notes of Sicilian lemon, Calabrian bergamot and pomegranate accords. The note list goes on. This scent is so refreshing and feminine you will, without a doubt, fall in love with the gold box and bottle it comes in.

    I’ve heard a lot of good things about Avene Eau Thermale Spring Water and I am keen to try it out because of my rosacea.

    I am super keen on the Smashbox LA Lights Blendable Lip & Cheek Color. The buffing sponge is such a great idea, especially for the cheeks. It’s slightly more pricey than I expected, but I suppose it makes sense for a dual product.

    The Repetto EDT is definitely my type of scent, and it brings back memories of ballet.
