It’s festival season ladies, time to embrace your inner wild child, dress to impress and party like you mean it. With not a cloud in the sky, the festival forecast predicts plenty of sunshine and good vibrations - so get out there and blow off those cobwebs.
But why should the musos get all the fun? We’re having a festival of our own, and you’re invited. With a few heavyweight headliners and newly discovered supporting acts we think you’ll love, there’s something for everyone at BeautyFest ‘22. Take a look at what names have made the lineup.
Scentsational Supporting Acts
Headliners are great, but nothing compares to seeing an upcoming act before they make it big. These up and comers might be new on the scene, but they’re sure to become favourites.
A fragrance for the free-spirited, Wild Rose is the newest release from Coach. Inspired by prairie floral prints, Coach Wild Rose is a delicate feminine scent with a fruity pop of sparkling redcurrant and citrus, a floral heart of rose and jasmine sambac and a meadow-like base of moss and Ambroxan.
The diva of supporting acts, Boss Alive For Her Intense is a daring fragrance for those who are unapologetically the BOSS. With just three notes, this scent won’t leave you reading between the lines. Raspberry brings the energy; vetiver, the confidence; and benzoin leaves them wanting more.
Meet this year’s biggest heartthrob, Jean Paul Gaultier Le Beau Le Parfum. An exotic temptation of the senses, it’s one you won’t soon forget. Enjoy the juicy, spicy opening courtesy of ginger, pineapple and coconut, and the masculine base of tonka, sandalwood and ambergris.
Skincare Stage: bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Gel Cream
From over on the Skincare Stage, don’t miss the ultimate supporting act, bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Gel Cream. A lightweight gel-cream that combines makeup, skincare and SPF into one step, the oil-free formula dramatically improves hydration, is SPF30 rated and comes in 20 natural shades. Now that’s a triple threat.
The moment you’ve been waiting for, this year’s BeautyFest headliners. The Kings and Queens of the season, these fragrance and beauty giants are taking the world by storm. If you haven’t experienced them for yourself, you don’t know what you’re missing, so here’s a sneak peek of what to expect.
Taking inspiration from a clear summer sky reflected on a crystal blue sea, Marc Jacobs Daisy Skies is a fresh floral fragrance with a burst of aquatic freshness. A “sky” scent, it’s light and versatile, the perfect accompaniment for bright days, but with a scent profile that is anything but boring.
The fragrance opens with refreshing quince, violet and mineral notes before the floral notes of lotus, violet and jasmine take centre stage. At the base, seaweed, musk and sandalwood combine to create a slightly salty, yet clean and warming aroma you’ll be drawn to time and time again. An absolute show stopper.
He’s the bad boy of the stage, taking seduction to the next level. It can only be Viktor&Rolf Spicebomb Infrared. Fiery, spicy and ultra hot in every way possible, this fragrance isn’t for the faint of heart. In fact, it’s strictly reserved for those who can stand the heat.
Starting slow with notes of juicy berries, this scent quickly spices up with a burst of red hot chilli peppers and cinnamon. The base of benzoin and tobacco set an unmistakably masculine undertone that is sure to separate the men from the boys.
Skincare Stage: Dermalogica Age Smart™ Dynamic Skin Recovery Serum
In such a huge industry, for a skincare product to get headliner status is no small feat. But Dermalogica Age Smart™ Dynamic Skin Recovery Serum is no ordinary skincare product.
A Dermalogica best-seller, this medium-weight anti-aging serum has a deeply hydrating formula that protects skin from free radicals and ageing. With SPF50 defence and antioxidant-rich ingredients including white tea, the serum neutralises free radicals and encourages collagen production. Incorporate this into your daily skincare routine and you won’t regret it.
With such a great line-up of outstanding performers, it’s easy to see why festival season is the best time of year. Explore more ladies fragrances and best-selling skincare, then get out there and make some memories. Plus, don't forget to visit our Festival Faves site edit.
