Clinique Fit Post Workout Beauty

This range from Clinique was a genius January launch - but if you're still in the gym now in February you might want to investigate it. It's only available in store at Selfridges, but you can get it online. I love the packaging, and the idea is great - CliniqueFit has everything you need for after a workout - well, everything Clinique thinks you need! I 'm not sure I could be bothered with all of these products post-Pilates every Friday … [Read more...]

New masks from GLAMGLOW

GLAMGLOW is a fun beauty brand. That's not to say the products don't work, of course, but fun is a big part of this brand - and they are brilliantly instagram friendly. I've had the pleasure of trying two of their latest releases this last week - the #GLITTERMASK which is essentially the GravityMud Firming Treatment mask, just with loads of glitter. And why not? The glitter particles are suspended in the gel formula, and they won't clog pores. … [Read more...]

UV Pantone Color of the Year beauty

Normally I get quite excited by the Pantone Color of the Year when it's announced. This year, I was a bit 'meh'. I'm not sure I love purple that much, and UV is a shade of purple. Apparently it is much more than a shade of purple - as you can see from the company quote below. It's so much more than a colour! But it is translatable to wear on our faces? Well, maybe. Maybe if we can have a bit of artistic license with what exactly UV is. I've … [Read more...]

Roots of Strength from The Body Shop

There's a lot of 'lifting and firming' in the beauty world this year so far - it seems to be the anti-ageing focus for the start of 2018. The Body's Shop are calling their new Roots of Strength skincare range 'firming and shaping', which is essentially the same. This range has been influenced by ancient traditional Chinese medicine which for centuries has advocated plant roots to look after skin and boost immunity. The new range is infused with … [Read more...]

There are two new lip tends for this season - holographic and metallic. Trust me, you heard it here first, you will be wearing both or either of these come February/March! I've tried both MAC's new offerings, and I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised by the Grand Illusion Glossy Liquid Lip Colour Holographic shine (£18). The name doesn't trip off the tongue, but the product itself is fun and if you like a high shine lip, then this is … [Read more...]

Chanel's latest makeup collection - Neapolis: New City - is bright, beautiful and bold - like the city which inspired it, Naples.
