Limited Edition Jubilee Beauty

The beauty world has fully embraced all things Jubilee, from red, white and blue make up to Union Jack false lashes, but these are the ones we are most excited about;
First up, we have the rather lovely Lancôme collaboration with hot new UK designer Georgia Hardinge, who has customised both the Visionnaire 50ml and Génifique 75ml bottles with hand-painted ‘Lancôme Sceptres’ and ‘Lancôme Crowns’, and the boxes with a range of quirky fashion sketches of Union Jack dresses and cute Corgis.
The Limited Edition Visionnaire £85 and Genifique £95 are available from 31st May exclusively at Selfridges and if you are close to Oxford Street on the 7th June between 6 – 9.30 pm, head down to Selfridges where Georgina will be personalising her Lancome designs.
Self-indulgence is more-often-than-not something of a pre-requisite when beauty buying and what better reminder of the Diamond Jubilee than with this rather exquisite Limited Edition from Crème de la Mer? The coveted, cult Moisturising Cream is displayed within a mirrored Union Jack box – and will be the pride of any bathroom shelf. Oh and whilst it may be the ultimate indulgence, at 500 ml it may well last you until the next Jubilee! Well maybe?!
The Great British Limited Edition, 500 ml, £1,150 available at Harrods and www.cremedelamer.co.uk from 1st June
Containing four shimmering couture eye shadow shades in Bronze green, Pink quartz, Golden brown and Purple satin, this Swarovski-crystal encrusted palette from Yves Saint Laurent is a royal treat for make up lovers. Although, as a limited edition it’s unlikely that you’ll even be tampering with the shadows, the colours are suitably sheer for day and can be easily layered for a bolder evening look. The real joy however is in the sparkling red, white and blue Union Jack Swarovski crystal casing.
Limited Edition Yves Saint Lauren Swarovski Union Jack Eye Palette £69 exclusively at Selfridges.
