If you want to make an impact this season, Chanel’s sheeny, opulent new Maximalisme de Chanel collection delivers. Imprinted with the House lion, found in the Chanel archives, the gunmetal-green eyeshadow will create a chic update on the smoky eye, and we love the shimmering face powder for a sexy glint on cheekbones. 

Try: Maximalisme de Chanel Le Lion de Chanel Illuminating Powder, $93; Ombre Première Poudre Eyeshadow in Vert Lamé, $55.

Want to add another few centimetres to your locks? The new Kérastase Resistance range promises up to four centimetres in 90 days if you follow its routine. First, go in-salon for the hair-strengthening treatment, $50, then follow up with the Resistance Extentioniste shampoo and conditioner at home. The secret weapon to maximum growth? The leave-in serum, which boasts ceramide and creatine to protect the scalp and prevent split ends.   

Try: Kérastase Resistance Sérum Extentioniste, $75.

Can’t remember a time before Moroccanoil? You’re not alone. This brand has boosted our locks (and limbs) since it launched a decade ago.

Dosed with argan, olive and avocado oils, this body oil infuses skin with essential fatty acids and antioxidants to leave it gleaming.
