The Concealer

Charlotte Tilbury
The Retoucher Conceal & Treat Stick

Why we love it?

Creating a natural looking base, The Retoucher is an excellent under-eye highlighter, as well as offering enough coverage to be used as a concealer. With a beautifully supple consistency, it doesn’t cake or coat around lines or dry patches and leaves the skin smooth, radiant and dewy.

The Nail Varnish

Lola Barcelona
Nail Polish Laca in Casino

Why we love it?

Needing only one coat for application and staying for days without chipping, we’re in love with Lola Barcelona’s nail varnish. The Casino colour is perfect match with autumn 15’s colour palette of black and navy.
