Here is what is happening in the beauty world at the moment...

As someone who is rather into the art of contouring this is right up my street! "Beauty brand Rodial has announced the official launch of the brand’s first Make-Up Sculpting Bar at Harvey Nichols in London.

A cute little nail kit from Ciate is set to launch later this month and rather excitingly the polishes are scented. "Nail brand Ciaté has introduced Candy Cane House, the brand's fourth seasonal house of 2014. This festive collection includes four fragranced glitter polished, including Candy Craze, Ginger Snaps, Tangled Tinsel and Snow Fall. To preview the fragrances, the user can simply scratch the tabs on the inside of the house to reveal each scent." £25/November launch.

As many will know Kendall Jenner is the new face of Estee Launder! "The Estée Lauder brand has announced its signing of Kendall Jenner, who will appear in digital, TV and print advertising campaigns and play an active role in creating social media content that will live on Estée Lauder’s channels as well as her own.

Murad have opened a standalone skincare destination. "Skincare brand Murad, synonymous with high-performance, science-based products, has launched its first official stand-alone retail boutique. The 1500 square-foot storefront is located on West 3rd Street in Los Angeles and serves as Murad’s Global Flagship retail location. In addition to offering the full range of Murad’s skin condition-specific, high-performance products, the store offers innovative express services and activities such as Guided Skincare Applications, Skin Health Assessments and YouthCam Evaluations, which use a high-definition camera featuring proprietary software to measure fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and inflammation. Additionally, an Interactive Art Wall encourages customers to create their own digital works of art and share on social media."
A new launch from Nivea "Skin and bodycare brand NIVEA has announced the launch of newQ10plus Anti-Wrinkle Serum Pearls, a new addition to its anti-ageing Q10 face and body range. Featuring the brand's highest-ever dose of coenzyme Q10 in a patented suspended pearls technology, the combination of a breakthrough formula and unique dispenser has been clinically proven to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The luminescent golden pearls are packed with Q10 and suspended in a moisturising, clear hydro gel which contains three of skin’s own active ingredients - Coenzyme Q10, Hyaluronic Acid and Creatine. When the special pump dispenser is depressed, the Q10 enriched pearls dissolve and blend with the hydro gel. This activates the serum to revitalise the skin, visibly smooth the appearance of wrinkles and achieve a younger looking complexion." £13.99 and December 31st launch.
