When the chill sets in, we find ourselves pining more and more for those little mood-boosters. Something pretty or luxurious to “Add To Cart”, that will perk up the long afternoon slump and inch you a day closer to the weekend. What could be a better (or more affordable) smile-inducer than a beauty product? Infinitely more affordable than a pair of shoes, they will leave you looking gorgeous and smelling sweet. Here, our pick of the new trends, scents and innovations that are available at Priceline this winter. Happy clicking.
Winter beauty must-haves
RED OR DEAD
The fastest way to lift your makeup look is to add a slash of bright red lipstick. Maybelline Colour Sensational Vivids Lipstick in Neon Red is an unapologetically bright crimson in a creamy, last the day formula. Simply apply straight from the tube, then blot with a tissue before reapplying. This presses the pigment into the lips and makes it stay put.

SCENT OF SPRING
Just because we’re deep in the olfactory doldrums of winter doesn’t mean you can’t smell like a fresh gust of spring. Floral scents are a proven mood-booster and can transport you sensorially to the lighter and brighter months in a single spray. Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Woman EDP has a florist-ready burst of white flowers over a smooth base of cashmere and musk, making it the perfect antidote to SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder).

NO FUSS NAIL
Gel manicures are great but the hassle of getting to a salon often outweighs the joy of how hard-wearing they are. Enter Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Enamel. It contains an innovative oligomer that cures the polish without the need for a UV light. Our vote is the Tan-acious shade – it’s a not-too-pink nude that flatters fingers, making them look longer.
Shop → Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Enamel, $13.56
JUST ADD OIL
Facial oils are a skincare saviour in the dermal-sapping months of winter and rosehip oil has the added benefit of being supercharged with Lycopene and antioxidants to help fade scars and pigmentation. Trilogy Rosehip Oil is a gorgeous addition to your nightly routine – it’s a super fine formula that absorbs quickly, leaving no greasy reside.
Shop → Trilogy Rosehip Oil, $19.99
AMP IT UP
If your hair lacks volume in a cooler climate it could be due to a few reasons – hair grows more quickly in warm weather and we often style our hair more regularly in winter, so the combination could result in less hair mass volume generally. It could also be due to using conditioners that are too heavy for your hair. For instant fullness minus the hair extensions look for products that promise to thicken individual strands like L’Oreal Paris Elvive Fibralogy Thickness Booster which contains Filloxane to amp up limp tresses.
