Burberry’s Trench Kisses Collection
When Burberry unveiled their Summer Splash collection at the beginning of this month we were beyond excited to restock our make-up bags for our summer hols, and breaking news reaching Grazia HQ now informs us that a new collection is set to launch next week, which is pretty perfect timing for our A/W beauty stash! The new range, which was introduced at the Burberry Prorsum A/W 2013 shows focuses on a fresh golden nude complexion, referencing the golden detailing seen throughout the ready-to-wear and accessories collections. It’s all about a sophisticated, gorgeous glow with gold eyelids, deep black lashes and beautifully illuminated cheeks. We’ve got our eyes on the Effortless Khol Eye Pencil in Stone- beauty heaven!

Iris Prima- The Scent Of The Ballet
Now that you’re sporting a winning ballerina bun it only makes sense that you smell like a ballerina too, right? All hail Penhaligon’s latest olfactory offering- Iris Prima, the official scent of a true prima ballerina. In a unique partnership with the English National Ballet, Penhaligon’s has set about capturing the very essence of the ballet, with no other than perfumer Alberto Morillas as choreographer. To fully immerse himself in the artistic world of the ballet, Morillas was granted exclusive backstage access to the renowned ballet company and spent months in theatre wings and rehearsal studios to capture the perfect scent. The result is a gorgeously feminine blend of bergamot, iris absolute, jasmine and vetiver. What’s more, we’re loving the glass bottle, complete with a suede embossed label and leather print box meant to reference the dancers’ ballet shoes. The best thing? We've even got a little video for you... Enjoy!
Iris Prima launches in Penhaligon’s stores and online on 9th September 2013, priced £85 for 50ml
