THE IN-TRAY

Just landed: Holiday arrivals

FROM THE VIVID STREAM OF NEW HOLIDAY-THEMED PRODUCTS ARRIVING IN STORES THIS MONTH, THESE ARE THE ONES THAT WE’RE SWOONING OVER.

Frank Body Express-O Coffee Cup

A takeaway coffee with a twist, Frank Body’s latest caffeine hit comes packaged in a novelty-sized cup that’s just asking to be gifted (it even has a label for the recipient’s name). Inside you’ll find a serve of Frank’s Express-O scrub—a whipped version of their cult favourite Original Coffee Scrub sans the mess—and an Original Lip Scrub, since your lips deserve the right to be as smooth as your body. There are three other takeaway cups available in the range, Coco Loco (includes a Coconut Scrub and Coconut Body Balm), Babeachino (includes an Original Coffee Scrub and Creamy Face Scrub) and Mocha Latte (includes a Cacao Coffee Scrub and a Glow Mask). Basically all your Frank faves in their cutest packaging yet. Coffee up!

Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Eyeshadow Palette

Maybe you won’t be constructing your own gingerbread house this Christmas, but Too Faced has conceived something even better: a gingerbread palette. Behold eighteen delicious shades from buttery mattes to foil-like shimmers in warm hues that will flatter any eye colour. Standout shades include ‘Warm and Toasty’, a rich glimmering gold that is so reflective you’ll want it on your eyelids for every holiday event, and ‘Gumdrop’, a hot pink matte shade that screams NYE revelry. There are also soft, spice-inspired shades you can rock every day and they’re all made with 100% cocoa powder, so in true Too Faced style they smell as good as they look.

Smashbox Be Legendary Lip Set

Why commit to one holiday lipstick shade when you can have five? For this lipsmacking set, Smashbox has curated some of its most popular Be Legendary lip colours plus its popular Insta-Matte Lipstick Transformer—which gives any lipstick a matte finish in a flash. The satin-finish, ultra-comfortable formula is legendary for a reason. Available in a broad range of flattering colours and infused with shea butter and vitamin E, the lipsticks provide creamy, hydrating colour that lasts until well after midnight. For its “Holidaze” collection, Smashbox collaborated with L.A. artist Jen Stark, who infused the packaging with her multicoloured artworks. The vivid results are incredibly giftable.

Tatcha Pure Skin Delights Set

Just the treat for the Tatcha fan or maybe the friend who’s expressed interest in this game-changing, Japanese-inspired skin care line. This set contains a four-step skin ritual for cleansing, rejuvenating and hydrating skin. It includes a Pure One Step Camellia Cleansing Oil, a Rice Polish Classic, the Essence and Silk Cream. As gentle as they are effective, the products embody the brand’s blend of geisha-approved ingredients and scientific breakthroughs. So, gift it or keep it? We’ll let you decide.

Omorvicza Moor Mud Set

Sourced from the largest thermal lake in Europe, Lake Heviz, Moor mud has been lauded for centuries for its ability to regenerate, rebalance and purify the complexion. This collection of Omorvicza favourites is the perfect edit to detoxify your skin, and ideal for a little TLC post-holiday season. The set includes a Thermal Cleansing Balm for your deepest clean yet, a Refining Facial Polisher infused with marine micro-algae, which smooths your complexion, an Ultramoor Mud Mask to brighten and a Mini Mitt for a seriously thorough clean.

Anya Smells Pencil Shavings Diffuser*

By far the quirkiest diffuser to ever grace your home, or perhaps your desk given the stationery vibes, this latest addition to Anya Smells’ lifestyle fragrance collection is all kinds of fun. Available in three scents (Pencil Shavings, Lollipop and Chewing Gum), each one contains a hand-poured diffuser, fragrance oil and pencil-shaped ceramic reeds that draw up the oil and fill the room with your fragrance. This particular diffuser emits a woody scent, inspired by new stationery. It’s probably the coolest gift you’ll give or want to receive this Christmas.

*Editor's Note: The Anya Smells Diffusers will all be available online and in-store from 27 November 2018.
