Packaging porn: Aesop’s gift sets

Posted on by Disneyrollergirl

Aesop-Gift_Kits

There are gift sets and there are gift sets. One for the design-o-phile in your life, these Aesop kits tick the style-meets-function box. Based on the Italian Futurist movement, the graphic typography and bold colour palette are pure packaging porn. And the product inside is just as appealing. There are six sets in total but these three are my favourite, Intensity, Alacrity, Agility

Nail polish-wise, the standout is Rouge Rubis (£18) a cheery Coca-Cola red with a hint of pink. Continue reading

As you might have gathered, I love knowing what’s new and next when it comes to brands and retail and one of my favourite information resources is LS:N Global. The trends and insight network from The Future Laboratory covers global innovation from design, retail and lifestyle sectors and has a free blog called Seed *. Even better than the online content are the regular insight forums held at The Future Laboratory HQ in Shoreditch. Recently, I was invited to cover Beauty Futures, a jam-packed forum that focused on the beauty industry. Over six hours the LS:N Global team unpacked the emerging trends that will affect the way we shop for beauty over the coming years. Here’s my breakdown: Continue reading

Ugh, now the clocks have gone back, I’m bracing myself for the winter blues. Apart from depressing mornings and a mega craving for sugar and junk food, winter brings out the worst in my skin.  Here are three products I swear by for their skin-boosting and mood-enhancing properties:

Chanel-Vitalumiere-satin-fluid Chanel-vitalumiere-compact-douceur

If you’re a fan of Chanel’s Vitalumiere foundations, last week saw some new updates. First, its Vitalumiere Fluid (top left), a very pleasant satin-finish liquid foundation, is now available in Beige 70 and Beige 80. I really like this foundation, it gives just enough coverage for my verging-on-dry skin and it’s good to see the range of shades expanding.

Next, just in time for the winter blahs is the new Chanel Vitalumiere Compact Douceur (top right), a light yet creamy powder base that adds luminosity to greige-looking skin. Continue reading

I don’t know who first came up with the concept of Christmas decoration-themed beauty goodies but give that person a medal. Retailers and consumers alike can’t get enough of the beauty booty-filled advent calendars, crackers and tree decorations to give or to keep.

We’ve already seen Selfridges’ advent calendar for this year and British Beauty Blogger has the Lancome ‘Christmas cubes’ and Clarins crackers on her site. Tomorrow Today sees Jo Malone London’s much anticipated festive fare arrive on counter in the UK. Continue reading

SPOILER ALERT! Selfridges advent calendar and Net-a-Porter beauty box

Selfridges-Advent-Calendar

It seems Brits love a beauty box, but whether that’s for the handy miniatures or for the Christmassy sense of unpacking all the goodies I’m not quite sure. Anyhoo, here’s two you need to know about if you’re a beauty box fan.

First, Selfridges has launched its Christmas advent calendar (above), which is bigger and better than ever before. SPOILER ALERT: The contents are plentiful and include the following… Continue reading
