The Beauty Products To Buy This Weekend As Picked By Our Beauty Team And Bloggers

01 November 2013 by


Byredo 1996 Eau de Parfum, £105

"I love the Byredo brand and I love the photographers Inez & Vinoodh, so you could imagine my joy when I heard they were collaborating on a collection together. 1996 is inspired by an image shot by the famous couple in that year, but the bottle and scent, like all Byredo fragrances is timelessly chic. The base notes of black amber and vanilla, paired with top notes of juniper berry and black pepper, make this fragrance instantly warming and sensorially transporting. Much like its creators, it is a modern classic. "

Label.M Powder Pink Spray, £9.95

Us beauty ladies knew we were going to love this the minute it landed on our desks- we’ve been swooning over the whole ‘hair chalks’ trend for a while now, having been obsessing over the My Little Pony-esque locks of Fearne Cotton, Katy Perry and Rita Ora for a while now. Alas, not quite brave enough for a permament finish? This might just be the answer to your prayers- this clever, wash-in, wash-out formula adds the perfect amount of pretty soft pink. Perfect for a night out or when you simply feel like ringing the changes, it really is as simple as spritz and go!

Avon Diamond Sparkle Palette, £30

This really is a one-stop beauty shop. With 24 eyeshadows, 4 lip colours, 4 blushers and 2 bronzers as well as additional brushes and a nifty mirror, all housed together in an uber chic case, this is perfect to pop into any handbag and our new go-to for some serious festive beauty. Although this isn’t available to buy for another two weeks, we simply couldn’t not mention this gorgeous beauty offering- so put aside some of those wages ahead of the big launch.

Bahoma London Limited Edition Black Halloween Candle, £38.95

We are totally in love with this awesome black candle from Bahoma London. This gorgeous vanilla scented candle is enclosed in a sleek black case and will be the perfect companion to bonfire-nights and firework displays- even if you don’t fancy leaving the house. Plus, the orange and black combo really is rather stunning, even if we say it ourselves, and will certainly take pride of place on your mantelpiece.

Goldfaden Doctor’s Scrub, £65

It is that time of year again when all of us at the Beauty Desk are in full realisation that winter is most definitely upon us. We now wake up in the dark and leave work in the dark- gone are the days of summer sunshine. Although we can’t control the dark, dull climate, we can most definitely combat a dark dull complexion. This nifty scrub is the perfect product for a good winter’s skincare tale. Jam-packed full of ruby crystals to polish away dead surface cells and to stimulate cell renewal, this really will leave the skin clearer and brighter. Plus, thanks to high levels of hyaluronic acid (aka hydration hit), this is also suitable for daily use. 

Katie Rowland Nail Varnishes in Diamant et Perle and Le Veuve Noire, £49

Best known for her beautiful jewellery creations, we’re excited to say that Katie Rowland has branched into the beauty industry with her debut nail artistry, ‘Alchimie Vernis a Ongles’. These jewel-embellished beauties are perfect for the party season and definitely emulate the brand's motto of ‘elegance with an edge’. Catch them here or pop down to the Aveda Institute in Covent Garden for a bespoke luxury manicure.

Oskia Micro Exfoliating Balm, £46

"As it gets nippier outside, it's more important than ever to exfoliate once a week to keep skin looking smooth. Oskia's Micro Exfoliating balm is soft upon application but once you mix with a little water and gently rub, you feel the tiny beads get to work. Not only is it non-drying and leaves skin feeling smooth, only the tiniest amount is necessary, so it lasts for ages."

Save The Blow Dry Shower Cap, £14.95

What’s not to love about this stellar shower cap? Not only is the packaging really rather awesome, but its clever technology (100% outer waterproof layer and super-absorbent micro-weave towelling) come together to give your blow-dry some serious staying power, even IN the power shower. We want one- the official end to our beauty woes.

Stila 'All You Need is Love' Blush Palette, £12

"I love this cute little blush palette. The candy floss pink is beautiful on the apples of the cheek, so girly!"

Hip Hip Hooray- it’s finally Payday, which was certainly music to our ears here on the Grazia beauty desk. What better way to celebrate, fellow beauty junkies, than with a new beauty purchase or TLC-inducing splurge?  Plus, it’s also the official weekend of the fireworks, so we’ve rounded up our pick of the best beauty buys that really will set your weekend alight…
