NEW No7 Laboratories Skin Pastes and No7 Foundation

Pastes. That's a formula I keep hearing. Yesterday it was the new Alpha-H paste, today it's two new pastes from Boots No7 Laboratories. This new No7 range has passed me by, but I am hopeful I'm back on the press office radar now. They kindly sent me the two new pastes that launch to the Skin Paste range next week - Hydrating, and Clearing. They also sent the latest No7 foundation - the Protect & Perfect Advanced All in One … [Read more...]

MAC launch Studio Fix Soft Matte Foundation Stick

MAC is a makeup artist brand, so they have always been a go-to brand for bases. As a beauty writer, I flit between brands - I love Bobbi Brown, but one of the bases I buy regularly is the Shiseido Synchro Skin Glow. It gives me some much-needed luminosity. I also love a foundation stick, so the new MAC Studio Fox Soft Matte Foundation Stick piqued my interest when the press releases arrived recently. I was sent one to try, for the purposes of … [Read more...]

Guerlain Autumn Winter 19 Make-Up

Guerlain's AW19 makeup collection is all about metallics - in a very simple way. Think sparkling eyes, shimmering lips, and softly iridescent complexions. There are three key items in this collection, first up  - Metallic-to-Glitter Limited Edition Liquid Liner in Khaki and Burgundy.  You can use this two ways - draw a line, then let it dry into a deep metallic finish - or use both at the same time for a fab double line. Or, you can apply … [Read more...]

Clarins AW19 Make-Up Collection

It's Autumn/Winter beauty collection time, and the first up is Clarins. To be honest, this is not really a 'collection' as it consists of just two items, and one of those is just new shades of an existing product. But, the Joli Blush (£27) is brand new, and the first Clarins blush to be enriched with plant oils. It's highly pigmented, and long-wearing, and highlights your cheeks in just one easy sweep - with the cute little brush that's … [Read more...]

Max Factor Lash Revival Mascara and Primer

Max Factor has launched a new mascara for August, and there's also a primer. When they landed on my desk they reminded me of those mascaras you used to get with the white primer to apply first, and how I turned up at work one day with one eye only done in the white... ...I'd forgotten to apply the black mascara on top, and my lovely colleague asked me if I was auditioning for Clockwork Orange. Since then I've been wary of white lash … [Read more...]

Benefit launch New Cakeless Boiing Concealer and you can get it on Deliveroo!

Benefit launches a new concealer next week. I'm quite excited about this because they do good concealers. And because the packaging looks like a pencil with a rubber at the end. I love it! The NEW Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer is a full-coverage liquid concealer that will conceal everything - from dark under-eye circles to blemishes and discolouration. But, it feels, say Benefit, lightweight, and doesn't cake, crack, or settle into fine lines. The … [Read more...]

Benefit’s New Blue Mascara – Would You?

The 80s are on-trend, so it's no big surprise that Benefit has launched its brilliant BADgal Bang Mascara in a new shade of Brightening Blue. If this is giving you horrible flashbacks to teenage years, then worry no more - this is actually really flattering, and makes the white of your eyes pop. This volumising mascara is brilliant anyway, and this new colour is an eye-opening shade that adds an instant POP of colour that makes your eyes look … [Read more...]
