Scent of an Angel

Christine Dharanya looks at the latest beauty products offered by Victoria’s Secret. Angels were seen roaming the streets of the City of Light, as Paris was wowed by the recent Victoria’s Secret Paris fashion show.



And Lady Gaga was the musical guest in a programme that can be viewed on the company’s website for those unlucky enough not to have a ticket for last week’s event.

With a catwalk bestrode by some of the world’s most striking models, there was no better showcase for an array of some of the most alluring products around today.

The lineup ranged from peppy, fun makeovers to darker hues of lip colours and everything else in between. Here, we bring you a few recommendations to awaken the angels
within you.

A part of the Victoria’s Secret Love is Heavenly collection, this Eau de Perfum is a bottle filled with the spring of love. Loaded with scents of floral and fruits, it offers a fresh and easy take rather than an intense feel. This is perfect either for a daytime brunch or for a night out with girlfriends. Packaged beautifully with a netted bow on the neck, it instantly radiates an 80s-style glamour.

The minute you open Victoria’s Secret Supersoft Body Butter, the fragrance whisks you away from the dry lands of Muscat to a floral, secret garden in Paris. This super-soft body butter’s silky, smooth consistency will keep you moisturised all day long. Your skin will feel baby-soft, and glow just like an Angels.

Let’s be honest, many of us have always wanted the kind of hand cream that will not dry our hands and fade out within an hour but will keep the most exposed part of our body moisturised and sun-protected. Victoria’s Secret Ultimate Hand Cream surely fulfills that role. The fragrant cream, which is packaged in a travel-friendly tube, is something that your purse will definitely welcome. The hand cream comes in three different fragrances to suit your tastes. 

Looking for the perfect gift this holiday season? We recommend Victoria’s Secret Pink Sleigh What? Body Lotion. It’s a gift that you might actually want to buy for yourself. The aromatic mix of vanilla and praline flavours will definitely keep you and your skin nourished, radiant and smooth.

Have you always loved Adriana Lima’s perfect-pitch black bouncy hair or fell in love with the ombre, wavy, golden locks of Gigi Hadid? You’ve always had the hair but it has never been perfect enough to take you to the party without becoming a tangled mess? Well, now, approved by the Angels themselves, comes Victoria’s Secret Leave In Conditioner – the perfect way to work your hair to keep it tangle-free, shiny and glorious all day or night long.

Matte lip colour has become the most sought-after shade when it comes to lipsticks – and much of the credit should go to Kylie Jenner. However, her sister Kendall rocked her luscious, shimmering baby pink lips this year at the fashion show. Now you too can have those lips, thanks to Victoria’s Secret Beauty Rush Color Shine Gloss. This non-sticky, highly gleaming potion is something your lips deserve this holiday season. Bring out the Kendall in you.
