Putting yourself first

BEAUTY Our beauty selection to start off 2021 is all about making you feel your best, from lush lashes to a woody fragrance





Lash love

Ardell’s Duo—Line It and Last It is a clever liquid liner and lash adhesive in one. It draws a thin but strongly pigmented black line to define the eyes, while also holding a lash in place. Meanwhile, Ardell’s X-tendedwear lashes can be applied under natural lashes, and can last up to six days. And once they’re on, Ardell’s Brow Sculpting Gel helps keep them shaped and defined. Available in New Zealand at Farmers, Unichem, Life Pharmacy, and selected independent pharmacies.


Out of the woods

Van Cleef & Arpels’ Bois d’Amande eau de parfum is a woody scent whose notes come from the vegan cedar tree found on the eastern side of North America. The scent is reminiscent of an almond tree in bloom, and is prolonged upon contact with the skin with musk and vanilla bean. Retail price in France is €145 for 75 ml.

A’kin’s Replenishing Hand Cream has recently been voted by Beauty Heaven’s members in Australia as the best natural beauty product for hands and feet, and it’s not hard to see why. It’s a combination of its lightness, its natural composition, and its scent. It absorbs quickly into the skin, getting to work with its jojoba, organic lavender and shea butter. Users found it effective and keeps hands soft and moisturized. More at •
