News in brief: Pandora’s cruise; Living Nature’s Lip Hydrator; Chanel appoints Australian make-up artist
Pandora knows the strong culture and following it has, and has invited select customers to join it for a cruise for the third year.
The jewellery brand’s Unforgettable Cruise is a seven-day cruise where fans can get a sneak peek at the new collection, and experience a styling workshop with Janette Ewen, Pandora’s Canadian-based spokeswoman, and other leisure activities.
They were joined this year by YouTube fashion and beauty hosts Meghan Rienks and Claudia Sulewski, to join customers in sharing their experiences with the brand, in person and through social media.
Those attending the cruise were gifted an exclusive, two-tone Pandora charm.
Its Mothers’ Day and spring collections can be viewed at its website.
Living Nature has launched its Lip Hydrator with an RRP of NZ$29Â·50 (left), a certified natural conditioning balm in a lipstick packaging. In addition to keeping lips moistâsince they do not have self-lubricationâit can be used as a primer for lipstick to help with application.
It uses active manuka honey along with plant butters and oils, to create a protective layer for lips. Carrot oil helps with smoothness and mica provides shine. The Lip Hydrator promises to be moisture-rich but does not leave a greasy texture on the lips. It is also literally safe to eatâin line with Living Nature’s other products, it contains no synthetic chemicals, preservatives or allergens.
Stockists can be found via the Living Nature website or by calling, within New Zealand, 0508 548-464.
