72 STYLE | beauty BEAUTY NEWS Words Kate Preece SEPHORA LANDS IN NEW ZEALAND Southerners may find themselves with a sudden ‘need’ to fly north following the opening of Sephora’s first Kiwi store this month. Owned by LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton, the French beauty retailer is making itself quite the home within the 1928 Keans building (146-152 Queens Street), which has undergone a reported $5-million-plus fitout over three storeys. The characteristic black and white stripes will be luring in young and old to experience the brands from Artemes to Zorva. IT’S IN THE BAG Don’t let humidity’s frizz-inducing tendencies quash plans to leave this winter behind. Those sporting cropped styles and fringes – including men – can instead turn to the Cloud Nine Micro Iron. The ceramic straightener is just 15cm long and weighs 350g, making it easy to add a bit of finesse post-beach and pre-dining. GOING THE DISTANCE Christchurch duo Hannah Duder and Bonnie Howland have created the type of mascara that will make you feel a little better on every application. Levitate is the result of years of research, perfecting a cruelty-free, vegan formula that is safe for your eyes, will last all day, and can be built upon with extra coats to take you whoa to wow. Made in Italy and featuring coconut oil, each Levitate purchase ($39) sees 50 per cent of the proceeds go to The Fred Hollows Foundation NZ to help restore sight to those in the Pacific Islands.
