Body Beautiful – Three New Beauty Buys to Try This Week
It’s a serious perk of the job here at Her.ie towers that we get to try and test some of the latest and greatest beauty releases and call it work. Lucky us. Here is a heads up on three products that got a communal thumbs up from the team in the week that was…
Viva Glam, €18.50/€19.50, Rihanna for MAC
Rumours have been rife this week that popstar Rihanna has big, big plans for an entrepreneurial future - trademarking her name for use on a range of products including clothing, swimwear and lingerie. Her own makeup line may well be in the offing too, but for now she's sticking with her MAC collaboration, releasing two new products in the VIVA GLAM range. And we really, really like them.
The new lipstick and lip glass come in shades of frosted metallic mauve, encased in a lovely soft packaging baring the singer's signature. The lipstick will set you back €19.50, while the lipstick comes in at €18.50.
The entirety of the selling price of these new products go to helping people that are affected by HIV/AIDS. In Ireland you'll find them exclusively in Brown Thomas, BT2 and BrownThomas.com from September.
Micellar Waters, from €6.49, Botanics
Regular readers will know we love nothing better than a beauty bargain at Her.ie Towers, and the latest release from Botanics absolutely fits the bill. For a gentle and soothing cleanse, these new Botanics Micellar 3 in 1 Cleansing Solutions use micellar technology in water-based formulations and extracts developed in collaboration with The Royal Botanic Gardens. These solutions easily dissolve make up, unclog pores and remove impurities using naturally active extracts from around the world. The no rinse formula is a bonus too... because we're all lazier than we'd care to admit.
Botanics Ultra Calm Micellar 3 in 1 Cleansing Solution with Soothing Marshmallow (RRP: €6.99) is designed for women with sensitive skin, while Botanics All Bright Micellar 3 in 1 Cleansing Solution with Brightening Hibiscus (RRP €6.49) benefits women with combination/normal skin. You'll find the line in Boots store or online at Boots.ie.
