Meet the cool new crop of ingenious innovations causing a stir in planet beauty.
Your roots are showing and you can’t afford a hair appointment? don’t tear your hair out. Guardian of colour Josh Wood has come up with a stopgap to camouflage re-growth - colour wands. Josh Wood Blending Wand comes in four shades and is £12.50 at Marks and Spencer, It gives you instant, non-permanent colour that hides grey hairs, blends re-growth and lasts for up to three shampoos.
Clarins puts an end to self-tanning dramas with a made-to-measure application. Add two to three drops from the mini 15ml bottle of Radiance-Plus Golden Glow Booster, £18, to your regular moisturiser or serum for a golden glow that develops evenly and adapts to your skin tone. The product will be available in late March and contains a high concentration of self-tanning ingredients, which interact with amino acids in the skin to activate colouring.
Scent your finger tips with Revlon’s Parfumerie Nail Enamels, £6.49. Once dried, the polishes, which launch this month, smell like the sophisticated scents you might find on a perfume counter, with 20 shades divided into fragrance families Fruit & Floral, Sweet & Spice or Fresh.
If excess facial and body hair is the bane of your life, try Inhibitif. The brand started with an Advanced Hair-Free Body Serum and has now expanded with a deodorant, face serum and intimate care lotion which gently and slowly minimise unwanted hair as they are doing their ‘regular’ job. Available at Boots, prices start at £8.99.
M.A.C’s Masterclass Brush Collection is a stroke of genius. Available in three brush styles, the silky synthetic fibres are engineered to pick up and apply products seamlessly. Priced from £22.50-33.50 at the M.A.C counter in Debenhams, Meadowhall, the brush heads and handles are ergonomically designed to run parallel to the face, instead of having to point the brush towards the face.
