Are you a lucky little lady in the City of Light? Or just another lost angel…City of Night.
City of Night, City of Night, City of Night.

Here are our March favourites, inspired by Los Angeles, a city of gilt, a little gauche and a whole lot of glamour.

YSL Beauty All Hours Concealer

What do you want to hide? YSL Beauty All Hours Concealer wants to help. While it can’t cover up that you may have kissed your best-friends ex or if you accidentally pressed ‘like’ on your enemy’s Instagram photo, it CAN make sure you look absolutely flawless in the process.

Call it YSL’s special brew of French je ne sais quoi OR the special 16-hour ultra flexible move-with-you formulation, whatever it is, it works.

YSL Beauty Fusion Ink Cushion Foundation

Another serious contender in YSL Beauty’s arsenal, we challenge you to try this ‘second-skin’ formulation and not be impressed. No, we’re not being hyperbolic like a slick LA agent, this foundation is incredible.

The coverage far exceeds the amount of product you end up using thanks to the unique air-filled pillow design and it’s also extremely handy for girls (or guys) on the go who like to bring their foundation with them as carry-on on a their flight… or, y’know, private jet.

By Kilian ‘Woman In Gold’ EDP

Complex, dazzling and a little bit ‘extra’—just like Los Angeles— By Kilian’s Woman In Gold makes an impression. Fusing delicate rose petals with heady vanilla absolute and pepperish Akigalawood, it’s a fragrance, a work of art and an all-round instant sexy mood shift in a single spritz. What might start as a curiosity and end up a full-blown By Kilian addiction. You have been warned.

The bottle also comes with a collector’s edition coffret inspired by the gilded works of artist Gustav Klimt.

Constant travellers will be happy to hear that By Kilian will soon be launching limited edition Woman In Gold travel sets. Stay tuned here.

Available from Libertine Parfumerie.

Clandestine Aviator Gold Dark Green Sunglasses

The classic aviator style cannot be beaten for eye-accessorised pap-avoiding LA antics. What makes these specs even more super is that 50% of all Clandestine sunglass sales go to the Juegaterapia Foundation, an initiative that provides video games and garden play areas in children’s hospitals around the world.

Nars Bronzing Body Glow Oil

This is one of the most iconic bronzers for the market for good reason. Behind the hyper-pigmented chocolate shimmer, inside the bottle the bud of the tiare flower floats in fine coconut oil, infusing into the liquid to create an oil that soothes the skin after a day in the sun.

While at night, use it on your décolletage, arms and legs for a glow that captures the flash of the paps perfectly.

Available from MECCA Cosmetica. Find out more.
