The best of what’s new in stores.

Makeup Match

Borrowing from the boys has officially made its way into your beauty routine. Boy de Chanel, a new cosmetics line from the French fashion house, features a tinted fluid foundation, a matte lip balm and an eyebrow pencil designed to enhance his features to natural effect. Sharing makeup just might become your new favourite thing (and if nothing else, it sure beats sharing a toothbrush).

Olive It

With top notes of green olive, lemon, cardamom and bergamot, this moisturizing shower gel won’t leave a scent that’s too masculine nor too feminine in its wake. Free of mineral oil, silicones, parabens and other chemicals you definitely don’t want on your skin, it’s also a safe pick for keeping your bodies clean.

Korres Olive Oil & Cedar Shower Gel, $24.50 at Pharmaprix/Shoppers Drug Mart.

Oil Change

The newest “it” ingredient hitting stores shelves, squalane (with an A) is a shelf-stable version of squalene (with an E), a natural oil produced by your skin that peaks in your early 20s and declines as you age. A lightweight and fast-absorbing product for guys and girls on the go, it instantly hydrates your skin, increases cell turnover and helps reduce signs of redness and irritation without leaving a greasy film.

All Smiles

Vancouver-based House of Teeth wants to help you shake up your oral-hygiene routine. With its punk-rock branding and biodegradable tube, this non-toxic toothpaste features naturally derived fluoride and the flavour of anise and clove-leaf oils for a fresh way to get both your mouths kissably clean.

Cherry Picked

The newest limited-edition fragrance from Tom Ford features a gourmand-oriental scent brimming with black cherry and bitter almond. Sure, the price tag is steep, but it’s way easier to swallow when you’re splitting the bill!
