Buro 24/7 Middle East has tried and tested these five beauty products to ensure you're bronzed and beating to the base this summer...

If there's one colour that is trending this summer season, it's pink. Whether saturated or neutralised, the colour is perfect for enhancing any bronzed look. From lipsticks to fragrances to nail lacquers, enhance that golden beauty look with the ultimate products created by five renowned brands. Here's looking at YSL Beauty, Ex Nihilo, Dior, Christian Louboutin and Tom Ford...

YSL Volupté Tint-in-Balm lipstick, Dhs125

YSL Beauty

As seen on the Spring/Summer '17 runways, a subtle pink-to-nude lip is a firm favourite this season. To get the look, opt for YSL Beauty's new range of lipsticks Volupté Tini-in-Balm and find Tease Me Pink — the perfect pop of colour to complete your bronzed skin. Available with a lip-shaped opening filled with apricot butter and jojoba oils, the lipstick ensures a nourished and a sweet-smelling pout with a pomegranate scent. 

Ex Nihilo Devil Tender fragrance, Dhs1,270

Ex Nihilo

Parisian perfume house Ex Nihilo is set to launch a new scent this month, Devil Tender. An addition towards its capsule collection, Les Interdites, the floral-inspired scent is as sweet as it is spicy with a combination of pink grapefruit, pepper, peach, bergamot, rose water, rose, suede, white cedar, sandalwood and vanilla. 

Dior Care & Dare Eyeshadow Palette, Dhs260


As part of Dior's limited edition collection, aptly titled Care & Dare, the French fashion maison launched a coveted new warm palette, Attract. Consisting of five creamy powders, each enriched with light pigments, the palette is transformed into the ultimate go-to summer product with its summer-specialised colours. Whether used as an eyeshadow, bronzer or even blush, the all-natural shades will enhance and bring depth to any golden look.

Christian Louboutin nail lacquer, Dhs240

Christian Louboutin

Following the release of Christian Louboutin's Loubi-Athlete collection, the eponymous footwear designer drew inspiration from the colourful collection and released an energetic nail lacquer to add to his beauty offerings. The bright berry shade, aptly titled Bolidonna, is infused with a pearlescent effect and long-lasting formulas that provide professional and fun results.  

Tom Ford Cheek Duo Compact, Dhs295

Tom Ford

Tom Ford's new Soleil collection is proving to be the summer's go-to collection, especially with its Cheek Duo compact. Get a double dose of pretty in pink with a cream-like power formula infused into a bold rose blush and soft pink highlighter, to even your golden bronze. Used alone or altogether, the compact also acts as an all-natural highlighter with its pearl pigments.

YSL Beauty, Ex Nihilo, Dior, Christian Louboutin and Tom Ford's new must-have products are now available at all leading beauty counters across the Middle East. Also, discover Chanel's new Gabrielle fragrance, which will soon be available in September.
