Discover our roundup of the latest beauty news from Westfield Stratford City.
Treat your lips to a formula that goes the distance in attention- grabbing colour with MAC’s new Powder Kiss Velvet Blur Slim Stick. The semi-matte lipstick offers deeply pigmented colour and promises to last for up to 12 hours – it won’t dry out your lips either, thanks to its hydrating, velvet-soft formula that glides on smoothly and keeps lips feeling moisturised. The shade line-up is equally impressive, ranging from bold reds to the perfect everyday peach-browns. Powder Kiss comes packaged in a handy slim stick that can be stashed in your handbag for on-the-go use, and is conveniently shaped for precise application, meaning no more pesky smudges.

Scent from Arabia
Specialising in rare incense and oil perfumes, the world’s largest Arabian fragrance retailer has opened an alluring new store in Westfield Stratford City. Arabian Oud’s perfumes are created by a team of world-class perfumers who successfully blend exceptional oriental fragrances with beautiful and distinctive-looking bottles. Madawi Gold Edition is a one-of-a-kind unisex fragrance created to mark the brand’s 40th anniversary. Combining aromas from both East and West and inspired by the souks of Saudi Arabia, it has a heady patchouli base layered with top notes of jasmine, tonka bean, pineapple and vanilla, along with a kick of spicy cardamom and black pepper. A powerful, evocative scent that strikes the perfect balance of intensity and warmth. Its gold and black bottle is also magnificent, making it ideal for gifting... or keeping for yourself.

Back to Matte
Boundary-pushing beauty brand NARS is leading the charge with its just-launched Powermatte Lipstick. The game-changing product boasts a light cream-to- matte texture which glides on effortlessly and sets to a smooth matte finish. It’s completely budge-proof – a single swipe lasts for up to 10 hours – and it won’t dry out your lips thanks to its hydrating formula, which contains softening emollient oils. The shades are spot-on too, we’re obsessed with Dragon Girl, a vivid siren red, and No Angel, a soft brown-pink that’s universally flattering and one to stash in your daytime beauty arsenal.
