Here’s what’s trending in the world of beauty
Hermès Twilly Eau Ginger perfume
The superfood benefits of ginger are well known. Full of nutrients, antioxidants and flavour — it’s a well-established ingredient of Indian food and Ayurvedic preparations. So when French luxury house announced the latest member of the Twilly d’Hermès tribe, we were excited to get up and smell the spice.
The Hermès Twilly Eau Ginger is a whimsical and fresh scent that represents the joie de vivre of its predecessors but with a twist of irrelevance as the youngest sibling. Developed by Swiss perfumer Christine Nagel, the perfume combines notes of vibrant peony, candied ginger and supple cedar. The combination of floral, citrus and musky notes creates a nouvelle and fresh fragrance with a zing. The classic Twilly bottle is topped with a white cap and a tied-up silk ribbon. If you’re looking to add this jubilant scent to your dresser, Hermès is currently offering a complimentary engraving service with the purchase of perfumes, colognes or Eau de toilettes at their store in The Chanakya, New Delhi.
Personalise the bottle with a message, initials or a simple design, making it a perfect festive gift for yourself or a loved one; it is on till November 3, 2021.
MAC x Blackpink’s Lisa
A year back, Blackpink’s Lisa (Lalisa Manobal) was appointed as the global ambassador for MAC Cosmetics. Fast forward to October 2021, and she is launching her very own collection for the beauty giant. The collection “MACLovesLisa” will be a curation of her favourite MAC products in shades that are true to the K-pop star. Recently, her eponymous song reached 73.6 million views within 24 hours of release, making it the most-viewed video by a solo artist in 24 hours. The popularity of her music combined with the cult following of MAC products is sure to make this collection a complete sellout. We look forward to a lot of shimmering eyeshadow palettes with a bold coloured lipstick.

Huda Rose Quartz Collection
Huda Kattan’s eyeshadow palettes are a thing of beauty. The colours and textures make us want to stare at them for hours before we actually apply them. The new Rose Quartz collection and the 18-shadow palette in it live up to this hype for our latest beauty news. Inspired by the trend of rose quartz healing crystals and beauty rollers. This romantic collection features rosy pink hues and metallic as its starting points. Huda’s signature buttery mattes, creamy metallic and holographic translucent gloss is a part of the palette.
Byredo’s Mumbai Noise
Swedish fragrance company Byred0 recently launched a fragrance titled Mumbai Noise, inspired by the founder Ben Gorham’s upbringing in the Maximum City. For the launch, the brand collaborated with quirky Indianwear label, Bobo Calcutta and shot with photographer Ashish Shah. The perfume is a blend of wood and amber notes of bitter coffee and sweet tonka beans. Reminiscent of the streets of Chembur and the cacophony of Mumbai, the perfume is a warm smelling memoir of the city.
