Rouge Bunny Rouge Flawless Face Powder Precious Velvet
For once, we’re seriously taken with this season’s fashion offerings – dressed-up, tailored, elegant – but it calls for a face to match. And that means: powdered. Elegantly. Preferably with a gorgeous compact you can whisk out in public. This – from exclusive Zuneta brand Rouge Bunny Rouge – is a whisper-soft powder which creates a flawless velvet finish, while leaving skin radiant. In other words: not too flat or too matte, but – well, velvety. There are four shades – and a how-to video, on the page, to assist perfect application.
For years we’ve been asked whether these (pricy) gadgets actually work. Having dispatched this deluxe version of the classic Sonic Skin Cleansing System to 10 testers, the definitive answer is: yes, they do – as it romped home with an impressive score of TBC to win our Instant Face Revivers category in The Anti-Ageing Beauty Bible. Here are some of their comments: ‘Unprompted and without knowing I’ve been using something different, friends have commented on how fresh I look lately even on days when I start at 6 a.m.’ • ‘I’ve absolutely fallen in love with this and am raving about it to everyone I know – the first thing I noticed was how soft and smooth my skin looked, with a definite bloom’ • ‘skin definitely “de-aged” • ‘skin definitely more radiant after each use’. For anyone unsure about use, again, Zuneta has a useful video.
- Clarisonic Plus, £179 – buy here (and this is where a 10% exclusive discount definitely pays dividends…)
Essie Fill the Gap
One way to achieve a flawlessly smooth nail is to go down the gel or shellac manicure route – but we’re not convinced that’s so great for nails, longer-term… This base coat, though, evens out even the most ridged and uneven nails, ‘filling the gaps’ (in Essie-speak) to deliver a smooth surface – and (with polish over the top) a mirror finish. NB We quite like it worn on its own, for a great natural nail look.
Malin + Goetz Dark Rum Candle
From the New York cult brand, this award-winning candle is perfect for the sultrier, smoochier autumn nights that are drawing in: a really rich, sexy scent infused with rum and leather, amber, patchouli, vanilla – and a shot of rum. (The candle you’ll find burning in Bob Geldof’s loo, as it happens.)
Edward Bess All Over Seduction, in Afterglow
Not the first time we’ve drawn your attention to this teeny little pot of gleaming highlighter, but it’s become a beauty classic for us: add a touch to brow-bone, your cupid’s bow, the bridge of the nose. Again, Zuneta’s how-to video offers a brilliant tutorial, demo-ing half a dozen ways to wear this.
