GABY Soutar rounds up this week’s best beauty products

Urban Decay

Rocking eye colours

We have No Doubt that you’ll love Urban Decay’s chunky gold eye palette, which was designed by pop star Gwen Stefani. As well as containing a huge mirror, it features 20 shades – mainly variations on everyday neutrals like the beige Skimp. However, we also love the jewel-like hues of metallic pink Harajuku and navy Danger.

Perfect for Arran Aromatics fans, this Nutcracker themed advent calendar features 24 mini sizes of their best-selling products including candles, soap, shower gel and body-lotion, almost all of which come in unisex scents (we won’t give too much away). There are only 1,000 calendars available though, so get yours tout-suite.

Give dry a try

If you want dry shampoo (without nasty chemicals) served in a eco-friendly CFC free bottle, this is the stuff for you. The secret is to give it a really good shake, then pump a puff of the powder onto your greasy roots, massage in, and you’re good to go. The smell – Aveda’s secret signature Shampure aroma – is gorgeous.
