Chantecaille’s new summer makeup collection
This year, my summer holiday is taking me to the super-glam locale of Nottingham (once dubbed the gun crime capital of the UK) – but happily, I’ll also be getting a shot of sunny Mediterranean vibes thanks to Chantecaille’s Summer 2018 Collection. Inspired by the Amalfi coast, its main attractions are a pair of beachy Luminescent Eye Shades and a sun-kissed Sirena Bronzer that also doubles as a highlighter. Both boast beautiful washes of shimmery colour, gorgeously lightweight textures and some seriously swoon-worthy packaging. Creamy Mermaid Eye Matte shadows, metallic Les Perles liquid eyeliners and colour-popping tropical-hued Lip Sleek lipsticks round off the rest of the collection. As ever, Chantecaille is cruelty-free and all the Summer Collection items are paraben- and phthalate-free, too. The collection launches in Hong Kong on June 21.
Products range from $320-700. Available at Chantecaille, 2-4 Hysan Avenue, Causeway Bay, and counters at Lane Crawford IFC, Times Square and Canton Road; JOYCE Beauty Festival Walk, Harbour City and New World Tower; SOGO Tsim Sha Tsui and Harvey Nichols Pacific Place.
Eco-beauty store Astrid Wylde launches
E-boutiques are leading the way with green beauty in Hong Kong, and the newly-launched Astrid Wylde might just be the most sophisticated site yet. With a sleek minimalist aesthetic that we’re totally digging (their Instagram is total #theartofslowliving goals), their online store showcases a beautifully-curated selection of cruelty-free, clean beauty brands, with both skincare and makeup well-represented. I’m really excited to see so many independent, up-and-coming natural beauty discoveries there, including Olio e Osso’s nourishing tinted lip balms, Axiology’s ethical vibrant lipstick line and Context’s paraben-, sulfate- and phthalate-free skincare range. Shipping is $20, or free if you spend more than. With a selection this tempting, filling that virtual shopping basket is going to prove far too easy!
Kerry Hotel opens its new Spa
The Kerry Hotel is the hottest new hotel to open in Hong Kong, and now it’s got even better with the launch of their luxurious new Spa. Featuring rich dark wood and soothing stone tones alongside views of the hotel’s harbour-view garden terrace, the treatment menu features revitalising facials using ultra-luxe Hungarian brand Omorovicza, plus divine massages and body treatments using all-natural bodycare by Zents. As if you needed more pampering persuasion, the Kerry has cooked up a raft of special offers to celebrate the opening: you’ll receive a complimentary 30-minute body massage with any 60-minute facial, a complimentary 30-minute facial or body scrub with any 60-minute body treatment, and if you buy a 90-minute massage, you’ll get a second treatment half-price.
Treatments range from $420-1,888 (excluding packages and spa journeys).Kerry Hotel Hong Kong, 38 Hung Luen Rd., Hung Hom,
