Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour

Rimmel are the latest brand to launch a matte liquid lipstick  - the Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour. I've not tried it yet, and it will have to go a long way to beating Smashbox's Always On Matte Liquid Lipstick which is brilliant. The lovely Rita Ora looks great wearing shade Plum This Show, one of 15 shades, including eight ultra-edgy hues - there's a blue, a black and a grey in there, along with seven gorgeous pinks and nudes.

Kat Von D Beauty arrives in Scotland

If there is one brand many Scots beauty addicts have been waiting for, it's Kat Von D. Finally, it's here. Kat Von D Beauty launched exclusively in Debenhams in Scotland last week. I couldn't make it along for the press and bloggers breakfast, sadly, but I have had a good look at the products, and they are great. I think the Tattoo Ink liner (£16) is one of the best I have ever tried, and I am very picky about liquid liner. But you'd kind … [Read more...]

40 Shades of Foundation, from Lancome

To celebrate 20 years on the market, Lancome has relaunched their Teinte Idole foundation in an incredible 40 shades - accompanied by a fantastic 'My Shade, My Power' campaign. Teninte Idole Ultra 24h is now Teinte Idole Ultra Wear, in a new bottle, with the same high coverage formula. The foundation is full coverage, but feels velvety smooth, and never cakes or streaks. I really like it. The campaign features 40 women, and their shade, … [Read more...]

Last night in London, Irene Kim helped lanch The Estee Edit's first stand-alone store, in Carnaby Street. Such is the brand's popularity that their own store was  given, and if you are in … [Read more...]

As well as being in a half sphere, so you can just apply directly, this bronzer has all sorts of skincare benefits, thanks to Coco water, Caffeine, and Bee venom. It's good for lips, cheeks and eyes, … [Read more...]
