Hooray for halal

Nail brand Orly has teamed up with online blog muslimgirl.com to create a collection of halal nail polishes. The range, which has been named #Halalpaint, includes six shades all made from 100 per cent halal ingredients. The breathable polish is made from water and permeable materials. While we have seen the odd halal polish here and there in the UAE, Orly is one of the first international brands to do this, taking the concept global. The collection is currently only available in the US with plans to launch worldwide, making it a pretty big breakthrough. For now you can order the products at orlybeauty.com

From Tokyo to the UAE

Forlle’d, one of Japan’s biggest-selling beauty products, is now available in the UAE. The anti-ageing range, which was created by Japanese microbiologist Dr Makoto Hatto, is made up of hyularonic acid molecules that can penetrate deep into the skin, absorbing moisture up to 600 times their weight. The products are available to buy at NStyle, who are also offering in-house anti-ageing facials using Forlle’d. Prices for the products start at Dh195, with facials starting at Dh600.

I love this gorgeous new summer make-up range from Tom Ford: The Soleil Color Collection contains everything you need to get a bronzed summer glow.

Seal in serum

Estee Lauder has unveiled a new super-hydrating night oil mask just in time for the AC-blasting summer months – hello dry skin! The Advanced Night Repair Recovery Mask-In-Oil is designed to be applied over the top of other products such as serum or moisturiser to seal in the products while you sleep. You’ll feel like a new person in the morning! Dh353, available at beauty counters nationwide.

Ariana Grande

It seems Ariana Grande can do no wrong at the moment and her latest achievement was the surprise announcement that her scent Sweet Like Candy (no, we didn’t know she had one either), was crowned the Best Women’s Popular Fragrance at the 2017 Fragrance Foundation Awards in the US this week. Judging by the name we predict it’s a young sweet scent; it comes complete with a fluffy pink pompom attached. Perfect as a present for your teenage niece or daughter. If you want to try it, it’s available for Dh137 at HouseofBeautyWorld.com.
