Georgia Vatter: What's new in beauty this autumn?
Beauty manager Georgia Vatter picks her top 10 beauty must-haves for autumn - and don't forget to make your bookings for our Ask The Experts: 12 Days of Beauty event this month!
The changing season is the perfect time to make some changes to your beauty wardrobe. As the night's draw in and the weather gets chillier, it's important that you treat your skin to good nourishing products and the fresh light makeup look of summer is revamped with autumnal colours and a nod to the latest trends.
From September 27 our beauty hall plays host to a 12 day beauty event that will help you buy the products that suit you. The Meet the Experts: 12 days of beauty is your chance to come along to one or more of the many beauty counters, join in an exclusive masterclass, or just sample our new look Retreat day spa which is now headed up by Decleor. You can find more details here.
In the meantime here are my top 10 picks from the latest products to drop instore, but with many more beauty launches planned over the next few months it's worth popping into see us to discover what's new.
Jo Malone London English Oak and Hazelnut and English Oak and Redcurrant Cologne
£44 for 30ml
Two new fragrances join the Jo Malone London line-up this autumn. Both are inspired by traditional English Oak, and as with the other colognes in the collection, both can be layered with other scents to create different fragrances. The perfect scent for autumn, you can come a sample the two new scents and enjoy a glass of English fizz (along with other treats) at our launch event on Sunday September 24.

GlamGlow YouthMud Tinglexfoliate Mask
Popular with celebrities and the Hollywood set, GlamGlow has also taken our beauty hall by storm since it was launched here in the summer. From illuminating moisturisers to firming face masks, these products offer magic in a pot!
BioEffect EGF Serum
Hailed as one of the next generation anti-ageing skincare ranges, BioEffect is an Icelandic company which has patented human-like proteins in barley to create skincare that tackles the signs of ageing. You need to try it to believe it!
YSL Tatouage Couture Matte Satin Lip Stain
The matte lip is still a strong look for autumn, but sometimes matte lipsticks can make your lips feel dry or the colour can look uneven. The new YSL Tatouage collection offers high pigmented colour with a matte finish that feels light on your lips not cakey. Available in various shades.
Chanel Gabrielle Fragrance
£79 for 50ml
We have all been excited about the launch of the new fragrance from Chanel. Gabrielle is not only the first major fragrance launch from Chanel since Chance in 2002, but the perfume takes inspiration from Coco Chanel's roots when she was called Gabrielle, a rebel at heart, passionate and free, who fought to become the woman she wanted to be. The fragrance comes in a lighter weight bottle that previous Chanel perfumes, but it is nonetheless beautiful. And the fragrance itself? Well that's just divine.
OPI Icelanded in a Bottle
The beige or brown nail is back this autumn, with coffee and camel colours featuring in many nail polish collection this season. One of my favourites is Icelanded in a Bottle from OPI. Part of the new Iceland collection, Icelanded in a Bottle joins other shades inspired by the blue lagoons, Northern Lights and lava rock of Iceland. The collection is available to buy from our Nail Spa, or why not book yourself a manicure and try out the colours before you buy?
