New in: Chanel L’Huile Camélia



As the owner of the world’s saddest, driest cuticles, this new Chanel cuticle oil caught my eye.

Part of the summer nail care offer, Chanel L’Huile Camélia moisturises and pushes back cuticles using the powers of camellia oil, an ingredient used in many J beauty and hair products (and of course, a significant one for Chanel, as the camellia flower is a key house code).

Once cuticles have been sufficiently massaged with the hydrating gel-oil, add a coat or two of Cap Corail*, Rose Coquillage, or Pastel Sand*. Buy the L’Huile Camélia at John Lewis* (once it’s back in stock) or Chanel (UK here, US here*).

Business of beauty: Ami Colé for melanin-rich skinimalists



Ami Cole Skin-enhancing Tint

New on my radar: Ami Colé. This beauty brand caught my eye a few weeks ago on Violet Grey*, first for its clean branding and packaging, followed by the subtly enhancing products – tinted moisturisers*, barely-there highlighter* and non-ashy loose powders in a spectrum of inclusive shades.

Founded by New Yorker Diarrha N’Diaye-Mbaye, it’s a far cry from the matte full coverage and ‘baked’ concealer aesthetic of recent years and sits somewhere between Glossier’s barely-there look and the gentle 90s glamour of Naomi Campbell (or what TikTok calls ‘UK Black Girl Make-up‘. (more…)
