Editor’s picks for payday

Spell Magazine editor Jemima Cousins shares what’s landed on the Spell beauty desk this month.

Editor's payday picks

Hairstory Hair Oil, £40

I’m a sucker for a quality hair oil but would I pay £40 for one in the midst of a cost-of-living crisis? To my surprise, yes. The thing is, Hairstory’s Hair Oil is a transformative elixir that balances the action of being intensely hydrating with a featherweight feel. Not a common trait in hair care products tailored to afro hair. I recommend using this on blow-dry days – the slip feels so luxurious.

BDK Parfums Tubéreuse Impériale Fragrance, £175

This summer I had the privilege of meeting David Benedek the French designer and founder of BDK Parfums. Not only does he have an acute sense of smell – one bottle, for instance, is inspired by the leather seating of a taxi from a night out in Paris – he understands intuitively what women want. After sniffing 19 testers I landed on the gorgeous Tubéreuse Impériale, a delux hybrid of floral notes with warm woods such as sandalwood and cypress.

Better World Fragrance House Carby Musk Candle, £80

Drake might be flaunting his latest collection of fan mania bras thrown at his It’s All A Blur tour, but it’s worth reminding folk the Canadian rapper has a candle collection. Carby Musk – dubbed ‘the Drake scent’ – apparently encapsulates Drake’s own signature smell. Its captivating fusion of cosy musk and warm vanilla notes creates an inviting ambiance. Each candle features a personalisation option in the form of a gold marker pen, which can be used to add your own message. #ThankMeLater

Haus Labs Triclone Skin Tech Foundation, £43.99

Lady Gaga has never shied away from her ongoing battle with fibromyalgia, a chronic disease causing widespread pain. That’s why with the launch of her foundation, the singer made a point to include fermented and bio-engineered ingredients with anti-inflammatory benefits. This medium-coverage formula garnered 10 billion TikTok views on release and comes in 51 shades. Sold!
