September's Beauty Buzz from Paris

Get a first look at the beauty products that are causing a stir in Paris

It's no secret that Paris is on the leading edge of the international fashion curve. The city makes and breaks hundreds of trends each season, and you can be sure that what catches on in the City of Light will make its way onto store shelves around the world. Check out three of the latest items—and one incredible stylist—that are already causing a stir in Paris this season. 

Colour Me New
If you’re looking to change your hair colour and are looking for a hair colourist you can trust then we recommend the charming Catarina. The professional hair colourist, who worked with the famous Christophe Robin for over ten years, recently opened her own salon in the 3rd arrondissement, L’Atelier des Couleurs. With an apartment-like décor, hidden from passer-bys, the salon overlooks a very quiet street and perfectly reflects Catarina’s down-to-earth charm. With years of experience in colour, she effortlessly matches the right hair colour to your own or if you wish, she will suggest a new shade to suit your complexion. Reservations are required. 4 rue Bérenger (3rd), 01 44 61 19 89

Dolce & Gabbana’s make-up collection has finally arrived in France and fans of the brand and beauty buffs will not be disappointed. The collection is quite complete, featuring everything from intense black mascara to a fire engine red, inspired by Monica Bellucci, to complete a sexy and smouldering look. With an array of products, colours and textures, every lady will find something with which to update her make-up bag. Available exclusively at Galeries Lafayette.

Travelling Tresses
If you love having perfectly straightened hair, and when travelling you can’t embrace the idea of letting your tresses au naturel and allow them to kink their way through the French capital then you will love Toni & Guy’s light hair straightener. The user-friendly ceramic straightener heats up very quickly wasting no time in getting you Paris ready and easily travels with you in your carry-on luggage. Available at all Darty stores including 8 ave des Ternes (17th)

Travel Buddy
M2 Beauté has just launched an oil-free eye make-up remover that makes taking off even the most stubborn of mascaras so simple. While the eye make-up remover is available in a bottle we actually love the pack with 7 pre-dabbed cotton pads, ideal for when you want to travel light. Available at Colette.
