Beauty Black Book: Summer Fragrances By Penhaligon's, Chanel Updates Its Les Beiges Line, The Return Of The Mullet & More
BEIGE OF GLORY
If you love natural and radiant bare skin beauty like French women do, then the new Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Foundation Hydration and Longwear line should be on your list before its launch on Sept 4. The lightweight liquid foundation features a combination of ultra-fine pigments, light-reflecting agents, hydrating agents, plant-based oils, and a duo of polymers that can be nourishingly hydrating, and at the same time, gives the complexion a smooth and luminous sheen. On top of this, the range caters to those with warm, neutral, and cool skin tones as it boasts a total of 25 different shades which is said to last for up to 12 hours.
French luxury clean beauty label Chantecaille, has officially unveiled its new flagship boutique at Tangs The Plaza in Orchard Road. Well-loved for its pampering range of botanical skincare and cosmetics, expect a 400 square-feet concept space that stocks all of its latest collections; a Philantrophy Wall that showcases the brand’s environmental commitments to sustainability and wildlife conservation; and the most exciting news of all – their very first private facial cabin in Southeast Asia that’s open exclusively to VIP customers.
So the crowds have descended upon British resort towns and beaches despite the pandemic. Le sigh. British fragrance house Penhaligon’s has a better – and safer – way for us to remedy our summer holiday blues. It has launched a collectible collection called Wish You Were Here that it aims to transport you to six quintessentially British seaside towns like Scarborough, Blackpool and Cornwall through an olfactory experience. To evoke that sense of wanderlust, it has paired each of these destinations with a 30ml bottle of its most iconic scents such as the refreshing lemon-, lime- snd lavender-infused Blenheim Bouquet and the warm and spicy Juniper Sling with its notes of cinnamon and orange brandy.
THE SHORT AND LONG OF IT ALL
Could Joe Exotic, The Tiger King and Netflix star have reignited a taste for the mullet? The iconic hairstyle popularised by the punks, rockers and even, David Bowie, back in the day, is what we believe the cool kids will be sporting real soon. Spotted on the Fall/Winter 2020 catwalks of brands like Vetements and Rag & Bone, the style is presented with micro bangs and unkempt short layers. Even Miley Cyrus has caught on the bug, debuting the chop job on an Instagram post a few days ago.
