Charlotte Tilbury stores coming to region

It’s the moment I’ve been waiting for for over a year: It has been confirmed that make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury will be opening three stores in the Middle East by early 2018. The first will be in Kuwait, followed by Qatar later this year with the third (and most exciting for us) opening in Dubai Mall at the beginning of 2018. The stores will stock the full range of her make-up and skin products and will be the make-up artist’s first standalone stores outside of London. While Charlotte’s team haven’t yet released details of the exact store locations and opening dates it’s enough to keep us excited until next year! Friday readers will be the first to know as soon as we have more details.

Sweet treats

Quirky Jumeirah-based beauty salon Kozma and Kozma has unveiled its sweetest treatment to date. The Candy Land Pedicure involves your feet being dipped into a bowl of candy-like balls with scents of everything from banana to marshmallow. Next, your feet are treated to an ice-cream foot mask followed by a chocolate foot scrub and mask. While you toes are being pampered, you can snack away on sweets from the in-house pick ‘n’ mix area. Dh175, Kozma and Kozma, Jumeirah 3, Dubai.

Pink power

You’ve already seen from this week’s Moodboard that pink is the must-have clothing colour for next season, but it’s also an essential for your make-up bag. L’Absolu Rôses by Lancôme is a collection of glosses, lip liners and nail polishes in various shades of pink, ranging from bold magenta to soft rose. Prices start at Dh100, available at Lancôme beauty counters nationwide.


That’s the number of fragrances in the first eau de toilette collection by high street brand & Other Stories. The Swedish fashion house has teamed up with New York-based perfumer Jérôme Epinette of Robertet with the goal of creating something that’s different from everything else on the market and is also really affordable. The result was five fragrances with all the ingredients coming from our natural surroundings. Choose from fruity fragrances such as Fig Fiction, or something more floral like Punk Bouquet – there’s one for every taste. Dh159, available at & Other Stories, The Dubai Mall.

Kiss me Kate

Kate Moss is launching a beauty palette. The model has joined forces with Japanese beauty brand Decorté to create a make-up palette that will include her go-to products for creating the perfect make-up look. The palette includes lip colours and liner, eyeshadow, eyeliner, brow pencil, bronzer and shimmer. The palette launched just this week but unfortunately for us it is being stocked exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue in New York so you’ll have to plan a holiday to the US in order to get your hands on it.
