Adding to the brand’s skincare empire, the new releases harness the power of the signature ingredient TFC8® with new technologically advanced formulas, promising to offer higher level of luxurious in the processes of repair and renewal on skin.

The nourishing Cleansing Balm removes dirt and oil, while dissolving all types of makeup, including waterproof mascara, easily and gently. The Lip Balm is a deeply conditioning treatment for both men and women, with the non-sticky lip care product striving to protect and improve the texture of lips, leaving them looking and feeling their best.

Dolce & Gabbana Happy Holidays Collection

Get set for the festive season with D&G's newest releases. Ideal for treating yourself or gifting others, the limited edition Happy Holidays Collection features luxurious make-up products for the eyes, lips and face––with each adorned with its own golden crown.

The Royal Kajal Eye Powder Liner is a soft, loose, micro-fine powder with an intense black pigment for an effect that is weightless, comfortable and effortless to apply. To customise your look, the ultra-precise applicator can be used in three ways: along the waterline for depth and definition; added to the lash line to intensify the effect, or blended gently over the eye lid to create a soft, smoky eye.

Also featured in the collection is the Royal Gloss Shine Lip Plumper. Available in three shades: Dahlia, Jewel Red and Secret Gold, the gloss will bring shine and volume to any look. Make-up lovers can also complete their collection with the Royal Light Liquid Highlighter which promises to illuminate the skin with an extra touch of radiant glow. Choose from either Divine Gold or Diamond Pink to create either a warm or a fresh glow.

Dior L'Or de Vie La Crème & La Cure Vintage 2019

The latest release from Dior is a refreshed take on the iconic L'Or de Vie La Crème. Since 2017, the luxury brand has been harnessing the power of France's Yquem vineyards to formulate L’Or de Vie, infusing the skin with the full power of the vine in its youth-preserving formula.

The new L'Or de Vie La Crème promises an even greater anti-aging performance––tackling all signs of ageing, including wrinkles, firmness, radiance, hydration, evenness, skin protection and quality––thanks to a new super-concentration of Yquem sap, a youthful elixir for the skin. 

L'Or de Vie La Crème is further complemented by La Cure Vintage 2019, a powerful emulsion that combines the highest concentration of Yquem active ingredients to further hydrate, firm and plump skin.
