Today I have lots of snippets of beauty news to see us through such a gloomy, over cast Monday...
This November Charlotte Tilbury will launch The Supermodel collection, family and friends if you are reading I wouldn't mind this for Christmas. Hint, hint - nudge, nudge. "The Supermodel collection, a range of limited edition products to bring out the Supermodel in every woman. Inspired by the supermodels of the 1990's to current icons, the new collection captures the DNA of the ultimate smoky eye paired with a nude lip with shades and formulas that work for every skin tone. New Luxury Palette for eyes in Fallen Angel combines a wet and dry finish, used dry for a buildable layer of colour or with a damped brush with water for three times the colour intensity and reflective finish.

If you are obsessed with scenting your home the launch of this new brand may be for you! "New luxury home fragrance brand, Gli Oli has launched.

A new and limited edition Diptyque fragrance is on the way, having tested it at a press day I can say it is quite powdery and unlike anything else by the brand. The new candle is amazing, a work of art if you will - ceramic and a medley of grey, white and black swirls."French perfumer Diptyque has announced the launch of The 34 Collection, a new range of fragrances inspired by the 34 boulevard Saint Germain location. The 34 Collection covers personal fragrance, home fragrance and for the first time, eclectic objects. Essences Insenséeseau de parfum is the product of the brand's collaboration with perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin, comprising notes including violet, pink pepper, Provence rose, mimosa flowers, vanilla, maté and beeswax. The scent will also be available as a solid perfume. The collection offers three scented candles that comprise a fragrance from a place rather than an ingredient, including: Le Redouté, a spicy woody floral fragrance with notes of cinnamon, cloves, orange, roses, cedar and amber; Les Lilas, a floral fragrance that contains notes of white lilac, heliotrope, Mexican orange trees and spearmint; and Curiosités, inspired by the Desmond Knox-Leet workshop and containing notes of dried angelica, clove leaves, Alaska cypress, rosewood, Styrax gurn and ambergris. Le Bazar Du 34, a range of objects that include candle holders, cold water fragrance diffusers with ceramic bases and stationery printed on recycled or environmentally friendly materials, also forms part of the collection." Launch date is September.
I'm so over Summer. Sorry I am. I prefer Autumn and Winter so I do apologise for being a little over keen when it comes to showcasing Christmas launches. Sorry! Speaking of which a super, sleek nail line up from The Lacquer Lab will be launching this November. "Nail brand The Lacquer Lab has announced the launch of The Novella Collection, a new collection of nail lacquers for Christmas and winter 2014. The new collection comprises five luxe-crémes and one glitter dust in shades including Lover at The Ritz (plum), Pocket Full of Jewels (gold glitter dust & shards of opalescent flakes), Cigarillo (tobacco-camel), A Lady's Confession (blood red), Storyteller (moody grey/blue) and The Wonderous (nude)." They will cost £9 each or £48 for the set once they launch on the 1st of November.
Excuse the blurry photo but you will have to take my word for it when I say the packaging of this line up is beautiful. "Windle & Moodie has announced the launch of its début haircare line. Created by hair duo Paul Windle and Neil Moodie who have 30 years experience within the industry working with A-list celebrities and models, the new line of 22 eco-friendly shampoos, conditioners and treatments are an extension to the salon in Covent Garden; combining pioneering hair treatments and performance-driven styling products. Key ingredients within the range include rooibos, yerba mate and green tea, cocoa butter, wheat protein, tea tree, green coffee, sage, eucalyptus, sugar beet, volcanic ash, as well as argan, manoi, apricot, coconut, camellia and oat oils. All the hair shampoos and conditioners are infused with high-quality, food-grade teas which are know for their antioxidant properties and were cultivated by a renowned tea specialist on their own plantations in ecologically clean and pure regions around the world. Key products include: Invisible Day & Night Cream, which is a light moisturiser that brings the skincare concept into haircare. More damage is done to hair in the process of sleeping as hairs rub against each other causing friction and this product protects against this; Foundation Spray is a de-tangler and moisturiser which prepares hair for styling; and Essentials Oils Elixir is a pre-shampoo treatment which nourishes and perfects glossy hair. Made in the UK, the Windle & Moodie collection is free of sulphates, propylene glycol, silicones and parabens." This will launch this coming August and be exclusive to Liberty.
