Covet and blush
Let your cheeks have it. Your make-up bag is incomplete without the limited edition Prisme Blush Dhs216 from Givenchy’s spring collection which not only looks good, but highlights, structures and colours cheekbones with just one swipe.
Mad about tulip
Almost a decade after launching La Tulipe, a fresh perfume with floral notes conceived as an ode to spring, Byredo continues to explore the infinite potentialities of this silent scent with Tulipmania.

To help, celeb-loved Matriskin skincare – we believe Brad Pitt, Eva Longoria and Madonna are fans – has launched in the UAE. Whether you go for the Osmopeel Mask Dhs345 to cleanse away deep-seated impurities, the High Performance Cream Dhs416 to stimulate and moisturise your skin, the Hyaluronic Acid Serum Dhs360 which provides hydrating and anti-ageing benefits or the gravity-fighting GF/7 serum Dhs345, you are bound to see the difference.
When it comes to skincare, La Prairie is always at the forefront leading the way with its years of research. The skin around our eyes is the most fragile and is also the first to show signs of ageing. To counteract this, La Prairie has launched its magic potion: Skin Caviar Eye Lift. It has a potent mix of La Prairie’s Exclusive Cellular Complex and Caviar Premier, joining forces to re-energise skin cells, leaving the entire eye area looking smooth and revived. Dhs2,225.
