Spectrum in the UAE
If you’re a follower of beauty blogs then you’ve probably heard of Spectrum Collections make-up brushes. The colourful mermaid-inspired cosmetic brushes are the favourite of bloggers and beauty experts around the world and now they are available in the UAE, too. Founded by two sisters, the animal-cruelty free and vegan brand is a favourite with celebs and is even loved by our very own Huda Kattan. Prices are totally reasonable and start at around Dh42 per brush. Now available at Harvey Nichols Dubai, Bloomingdale’s Dubai and Areej.

A new generation
Touch Eclat by YSL is probably one of the most iconic beauty products of all time. But now we’re in the post-Korean beauty era, which means it needs to come in cushion form. Le Cushion YSL is the first cushion foundation from the brand with a customisable light coverage – so you can get the shade and consistency that suits your skin. It uses the same ingredients and concept as Touche Eclat to give you maximum coverage with a light feeling product that you’ll barely notice on your skin, covering any dark spots or marks. Dh268, available at beauty counters nationwide.
Sweet as Candy
Prada Candy Gloss is the latest fragrance to join the Prada Candy family. Made with layers of vanilla and cherry the scent is super-sweet and feminine. The new scent launches in store nationwide this month, Dh450, for an 80ml bottle.
