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

29 November 2013 by


Atkinsons 24 Old Bond Street Scented Candle, £56

First official perfumer to the Royal Courts, [a target="_blank" href="">Atkinsons[/a] is the epitome of English luxury. This stunning candle almost looks too beautiful to burn – but smells far too beautiful not to, trust us! The colour makes it man-friendly too –Christmas gift potential?

Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour, £18

If, like us, your paycheque doesn’t quite cover a Chanel 2.55 (or even come close for that matter) seek refuge at their somewhat more affordable beauty counter instead. We found three gorgeous colours from their iconic [a target="_blank" href="">Le Vernis collection[/a] that we think will work perfectly for both tips and toes and are bang on trend for the party season.

Clarins Joli Rouge Lipstick in Clarins Red, £18

"Clarins are one of my go-to brands for skincare, but I'd never really considered them for make-up until I discovered Joli Rouge. The shade range is huge, but Clarins Red- a classic Hollywood red, is by far my favourite. The moisturising formula glides on and only needs to be re-applied every few hours. Rich in pigment, with just the right amount of shine,[a target="_blank" href=",en_GB,pd.html"> Joli Rouge[/a] guarantees the ultimate high-impact pout, perfect for the Christmas party season."

Garnier Body Ultimate Regenerating Oil, £7.99

Firm, nourish and revive skin with this weightless spray oil from [a target="_blank" href="^PRD_BODYCARE^BODY_OIL^BODY_OIL_DISCOVER^BODY_OIL_RTN2&prdcode=P29037">Garnier[/a]. Enriched with precious pomegranate, camellia, jojoba and geranium oils it beautifies skin instantly and fights the signs of aging over time. All this for less than a tenner I hear you say? Act fast and you can snap it up for only £5.33 at Boots. Bargain!

Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, £37

Not out till 16th December but you may wish to pre-order because [a target="_blank" href="">Naked 3[/a] is definitely all that. Beautifully rose-hued shades that will suit all skin tones and a buttery texture that blends like a dream - absolutely faultless. The most excited I’ve felt over an eyeshadow palette in a long time!

BareMinerals Ready Convertible Eyeshadow Palette, £45

I absolutely adore the new bareMinerals READY® Convertible Eyeshadow [a target="_blank" href=",default,pd.html">Palette[/a]. It comes with 12 flattering and easy-to-blend shades and each one can be popped out to slot into the centre mini compact which pulls away and can be popped into your handbag. Now you won’t ever have the dilemma of what to take when you’re on the go.

Trilogy Aromatic Body Oil, £16.50

"Trilogy's [a target="_blank" href="">body oil[/a] is a great gift, for a loved one or yourself. The frosted glass really gives it that apothecary feel and it's a great addition to any beauty cabinet. I love that it's packed full of vitamins and skin-saving oils like rosehip, sweet almond, evening primrose and avocado, and is also multi-functional. Over the summer I used it as a dry body oil and recently I've been adding it to my baths as the perfect way to unwind and give my skin a treat; It's kind of like the 8-hour cream for your body."

Jamila, [a href="" target="_blank">[/a]

Tromborg Aroma Therapy Body Lotion

Launching its 189-piece cosmetic and skincare line-up in the UK this week is Scandinavian company Tromborg. A cross between science and nature, [a target="_blank" href="">Tromborg[/a] is all about simplicity and well-being and is very much based around the principle “less is more”. One of our favourites from the brand is the body lotion – not only does it feel heavenly, it smells it too – we can’t get enough!

YSL Rue De Babylone Blush Collector Palette, £29.50 with the purchase of any Touche Éclat

Almost too beautiful for words, this YSL compact pairs a cool, matte pink blush and a glowing pink heart with a scintillating finish, that adapts to all skin tones for a custom-perfected healthy glow. Without a doubt the most spectacular piece to land on our desks this week, this winter wonder has us all fighting over who gets to keep it. Word of warning ladies – this one is not for sharing! Get your own while you still can!

Rejoice! Not only is it the end of a very (very) long week, it also just so happens to be the end of the month too – which ladies, can only mean one thing… Payday has arrived! And what better time to treat yourself? Here at Grazia HQ we’ve searched far and wide to bring you the very best beauty buys of the weekend, and we’re sure you’ll love these little gems as much as we do.
