Revlon's ColorStay mineral mousse makeup (first right, HK$168/30ml) is a lightweight, whipped mousse formula that is talc- and paraben-free. It has a soft matt finish and gives SPF20 protection. Available from Watsons and Mannings.

Clinique's Superfit makeup (second right, HK$185/50ml) has been upgraded to include new porous film technology to act as a 'web' on the skin's surface. It also has a lighter feel on the skin. The new additions, Clinique says, improve on the original by being able to control oil and sweat. Available from all Clinique counters. L'Occitane's Almond Apple Velvet eye gel (third right, HK$270/15ml) is cooling and refreshing for tired eyes, and it smells as fresh as a green apple. Available from all L'Occitane stores, including Pacific Place, Admiralty, and Elements Mall, Kowloon.

Salvatore Ferragamo's F by Ferragamo Black scent for men (fourth right, HK$325/30ml eau de toilette, HK$425/50ml) blends a woodiness with rich lavender and black pepper. It's masculine, for the true metro heading out at night. Available from Sogo, Causeway Bay, and Wing On, Sheung Wan. Sephora's Multi-Action nail polish (far right, HK$75/10ml) in beige is easy to apply, looks great on shorter nails, gives a smooth finish and offers a versatile shade and texture. Available from Sephora, Hollywood Plaza, Mong Kok.

Trinityline's Inner Vital Essence EX (HK$520/30ml) contains high levels of ursolic acid to minimise fine lines around the eye and lip areas by stabilising the structure of collagen. The Japanese brand recently won the Grand Gold Medal from the International Quality Institute Monde Selection for this and a sister product. Available from Marionnaud, 101 Nathan Rd, TST.
