What’s new in beauty? Whether it’s a new product launch, salon opening or ground-breaking treatment to try, we keep you up to date on all the latest beauty news in Hong Kong.
Eye Make Up + Skincare
Talika is a French beauty brand that specialises in eye care products and high tech beauty gadgets. Talika has created the first make-up care line that offers eye make-up and specialist skincare in one. The range promises to “revolutionise women’s daily beauty routines with its dual-function products combining the quality of professional make-up with a concentration of skin care key ingredients.” The Make Up and Care range includes three types of products. Lipocils Liner is an eyelash boosting eyeliner, we love that it has an extra-fine tip. Eye Shadow Lift offers a range of five cream eyeshadows that lift and smooth the eye area. Eye Detox Concealer is an anti-fatigue and anti-aging concealer for the eye area.
It seems the line between make-up and skin care is becoming blurred and that’s great beauty news for busy women! You can try the Talika Make Up and Care range (and play with their beauty gadgets) at K11 Beauty in K11 mall.
Fenty Beauty in HK
Rihanna fans and beauty enthusiasts will be doing a happy dance in September. Rihanna’s cult beauty brand, Fenty Beauty, will be available in Hong Kong. You’ll be able to buy Fenty products at T Galleria by DFS, Sephora, Harvey Nichols, Beauty Bazaar, and Beauty Avenue. This is a cult line for anyone who finds it challenging to get a good match to your skin tone. The range has a focus on traditionally hard-to-match skin tones, formulas that work for all skin types, textures that love to be layered, and universal shades for us all to enjoy. “I created Fenty Beauty because I wanted to make a beauty brand that is inclusive for people everywhere. I want everyone to feel beautiful, recognized and EMPOWERED, no matter their ethnicity, culture, skin tone or style.” says Rihanna
After The Strand sadly closed its doors permanently, Glow Spa & Salon opened its arms to many of the salon’s talented hair stylists and beauty technicians. These latest additions bring Glow’s formidable squad to over 30 stylists and technicians from all areas of hair and beauty! Between them, the team has centuries of experience with experts in the latest colour techniques and products, technical treatment applications, hair extensions, and even an afro specialist. The beauty team also welcomes two new team members. Both are experienced experts in many treatments, including intimate hair reduction and removal for both men and women.
How to Ace Anti-Ageing
Newly available in Hong Kong is John Masters Organics Vitamin C Anti-Aging Face Serum. This natural moisturiser is a powerful, age-fighting formula loaded with Vitamin C. Why Vitamin C? Because in its natural amino-acid polypeptide form, it penetrates deep into skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, crow’s feet and premature ageing. Get it at the new John Masters Organics Causeway Bay store for $435/30ml.
If you’re looking for a light scent this summer, try Giorgio Armani’s refreshing Acqua di Gioia Hair & Body Mist. The mist was the first release in the Gioia Collection and offers a light floral-aquatic scent. The refreshing fragrance leads with crushed mint and a zest of Italian lemons, while the Acqua di Gioia hair and body mist is a nice alternative to a full perfume at this time of year.
Available at Armani Chater House for $280/140ml.
