Who’s a PRETTY POLLY …

Beauty products worth squawking about

We admit, we’ve gone a little bird mad this month. We’re loving – and took inspiration from – this vintage Broad Tailed Parrot print … available in loads of sizes to suit  your space. From R480 to R4980 from bespokehome.co.za

Let’s be honest. If you’re looking for intense colour, you don’t really need look much further than MAC. This, In the Shadows vibrant blue eyeshadow, is highly pigmented for pure colour and fits neatly into the MAC Pro Palette case. R150. And if green with envy’s more your scene, then this New Crop vivid hunter green powder eyeshadow with pearl will do the trick. It applies evenly, blends well, and ticks the eye-catching box. R280 from maccosmetics.co.za

Wink. wink, kiss, kiss. For dramatic eyes, Elizabeth Arden High Drama Eyeliner in Midnight Dream (R280), and for our favourite gloss … Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Colour Liquid Lip Gloss in Red Door VIP. R280 and R295 respectively from Woolworths.

One for the boys.

Amouage has just unveiled Interlude Black Iris Man. Inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s famous painting of the eponymous name, Black Iris is spicy, woody Eau de Parfum … with the pay-off line being ‘tranquillity born in a moment of chaos’. Very apt. R5550 from Woolworths, Truworths and Edgars • Created by French perfumers, Artistique Magnolia en Fleurs is one of three new fragrances from Avon. This one’s a symphony of Chinese magnolias … a joyful scent with dewy notes and soft musks. R600 from myavon.co.za • A fiery, seductive fragrance, Narciso Rodriguez Rouge is a bouquet of Bulgarian rose and iris, with vivid amber woody notes. R1105 from Woolworths • The latest creation from Hermés, L’Ombre des Merveilles. Packaged in an intense and luminous blue bottle resembling a magnifying glass, the fragrance was inspired by the union of day and night … it’s mysterious, woody, oriental and enveloping. From R1905.
