The Beauty Bit: Bling it Back

Mimi ON Nov 18, 2008 AT 4:08 pm

Just when I thought bling had been consigned to the bottom of the beauty bin, it’s back – infinitely more sophisticated than before – and my pash for flash is at an all-time peak. If it’s crystal covered, splashed with rocks or ultra-shiny, my alter-ego magpie wants it NOW!

Estee Lauder Limited Edition Union Jack Compact
Since my Chanel Union Jack Handbag went down so well, I’m loving everything UK right now. This powder compact is queen-and-country elegant, and something I would find very hard to conceal inside my handbag. It’s just the perfect cue for much nose powdering – of the very innocent kind. Exclusively at Harrods. £50

Sisley Phyto-Khol Star Eyeliners
What began as a limited edition line in 2006 has now thankfully turned into an integral part of the Sisley range. A chunky Swarovski crystal decorates the end of each pencil, and the sparkling liners are packed with oils, waxes and vitamins to protect the delicate eye skin. There are six shades to choose from; top favourites for this season are Black Diamond and Pure Sapphire. From Sisley Counters nationwide. £26.50

Michael Kors Very Pretty
Sparkling citrus, green violet, orange flower and coconut bring a host of crisp and exotic notes to this latest offering from Michael Kors. The bottle’s what sold it to me though – covered in sparkling crystals with a silver cap and mirror like box, the fragrance has made its way to the very front of my dressing table. From 1st November, £40. Stockists: 0870 034 2566
