Shopping is a salve for almost anything. It’s a fact. Okay, so perhaps there are a few issues that can’t be pacified by a new outfit or fresh shade of lipstick, but we’d wager that it’s an uplifting exercise for most.
That being said, nobody likes to shell out on something that doesn’t actually deliver. So if you’re in need of some retail therapy, here are a few fashion and beauty recommendations from team GRAZIA.
Dyson Supersonic, $599 SHOP NOW
“I’m a huge fan of Dyson’s hair styling tools, but its latest innovation is an absolute game-changer. The iconic Dyson Supersonic hair dryer now comes with a new Flyaway Attachment that smooths errant strands for a sleek, salon-fresh finish. As an admittedly lazy person, I usually resort to a rough-dry when it comes to my hair, which means that the final look is… well, rough. But this new attachment – which can also be purchased on its own for $99, if you’ve already got a Supersonic – uses Coanda technology to coax flyaways forward for a silky, shiny finish. It looks like a claw but it honestly makes styling so quick that I’m even washing my hair more often (you know, like once a week rather than once every 11 days).” – Kate Lancaster, Contributing Beauty Editor
Rebecca Vallance Calix Pants, $399 SHOP NOW
“Rebecca Vallance’s signature bow/tie has been brought to the front with the Australian designer’s unique take on the classic cigarette pant. While Sydney is in lockdown at the moment, I’m mentally styling up some ‘coming out’ outfits – and these pants are an excellent investment for your in-person work meetings, wines with your girlfriends at 10 William, and let’s be honest, your sanity. Glam nights are coming, I promise!” – Jessica Bailey, Editorial Director
Pai BioRegenerate Rosehip Oil, $29 SHOP NOW
“I’m not usually a big fan of facial oils for everyday skincare as I find the formula quite intense. But after a bout of cold weather and wind, as well as stress (hello lockdown) my eczema has put the Pai BioRegenerate Rosehip Oil to the ultimate test. It’s silky and rejuvenating and stops any stubborn spots of itchy skin from worsening.” – Rebekah Clark, Features Writer
Chanel STYLO YEUX WATERPROOF LONGWEAR EYELINER AND KOHL PEN, $47 SHOP NOW
“I’m really into coloured eyeliner at the moment. Whether I’m just sitting at my desk or heading out for drinks, my go-to look now revolves around how I’ll dress up my lids for the occasion. Chanel’s new eye makeup collection has been on high rotation, but the Bleu Métal shade – a steely midnight hue – is my absolute favourite. It contrasts perfectly with my blue eyes, allowing for a pop of colour that still looks elevated and sophisticated.” – Kate Lancaster, Contributing Beauty Editor
Swarovski Chroma Hoop earrings, $349 SHOP NOW
“The definition of a good Friday evening really comes down to two things for me: a beautiful bar and a statement earring. These pyramid-cut crystal earrings from Swarovski caught my eye recently and are a bit of an avant-garde take (at least for me) on the classic hoop. Hair back. Nude lip. Good to go.” – Jessica Bailey, Editorial Director
Venroy Cashmere Lounge Pants, $300 SHOP NOW
“I’ve been a fan of Bondi-based label, Venroy, since I stepped foot in their beachside boutique three years ago. While my wardrobe is filled with their buttery linen pieces I hadn’t explored their knitwear range until a weak moment during Sydney’s current lockdown. And admittedly I can’t stop wearing the grey marle cashmere lounge pants. And now I think I’ll get them in every other colour. They’re so soft and seriously warm.” – Rebekah Clark, Features Writer
