It’s no secret that a woman’s best friend is her Tom Ford lipstick. So the unveiling of five gorgeous new shades in the Lip Color Satin Matte collection was the ultimate green light for us to indulge in more. Our findings? The perfect weapon to unleash terracotta pouts upon our first swatch of shade 93 Invite Only. This gorgeous brick rose colour sits wonderfully on all skin tones, with a touch of brown to masterfully tie a look together.

Loewe Earth Eau de Parfum
A genderless perfume centred on an unconventional ingredient: truffle. Concocted by perfumer Nuria Cruelles, the scent is inspired by “the elements that connect nature and life above and below the earth.” Which led the house to search beneath the surface for the underground-growing mushroom. It’s a scent that is part floral, part musky; as top notes of mimosa, violet and amber join others like pear and elemi, a spicy resin—a special touch to leave you feeling fresh and invigorated.
Loewe Earth Eau de Parfum, 100ml, $220, available at Sephora

Diorshow 10 Couleurs Mitzah Limited Edition
Strike all the right notes in this fab and feline eyeshadow collection inspired by Monsieur Christian Dior’s muse, Mitzah Bricard. The eclectic and eternally chic French icon was so regarded for her love for animal print, the late François Lesage recalled that she’d “walk around the studio practically naked, draped in panther skin. It was rather a lot for a young man to take.”
In honour of her enduring spirit, Dior has unveiled a limited edition eyeshadow palette of 10 rich, beige and burgundy hues. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Dior make-up product if the shadows weren’t radiant, long-wearing and silky smooth to wear, and therein lies the true luxury of the limited edition gem.
Diorshow 10 Couleurs Mitzah Collection, $228, available at Dior

A robust scent crafted for the royals? This does it.

Drunk Elephant A-Gloei™ Maretinol Oil
Often enough, we’re hard-pressed to find a low-impact retinol that doesn’t overstimulate our skin or leave us with a burning irritation after use. But Drunk Elephant just might have the perfect answer to the conversation, with their A-Gloei Maretinol Oil that’s suitably prepared for a range of skin types. Bolstered by ceramides meant to strengthen the skin barrier, the 0.5% retinol oil is lightweight, easy to spread and doesn’t leave a stick. And after using it religiously every other day, its clarifying and hydrating properties come through; acne scars are lightened and a healthier radiance is afforded from increased collagen production. If anything, it’s a win from us simply for its ability to offer a gentle retinol formulation that doesn’t leave a tingling sensation nor break us out. Designed with a pipette for ease of dispensing, we recommend you to add in a few drops of the oil into your night time moisturiser or serum for an all-in-one routine.
Drunk Elephant A-Gloei™ Maretinol Oil, $108 for 30ml, available at Sephora.
