Diego Dalla Palma Summer 2018 Cruise Collection

Italian beauty brand Diego Dalla Palma is always worth a look. The brand, from Italy's fashion capital, Milan, is stocked in Marks and Spencer Beauty here in the UK. Launched in Milan in 1970, it has a wonderfully retro feel to it, and is much more than just makeup - with skincare and haircare in the diego dalla palma group. And there is an actual Diego Dalla Palma  too  - the Italian makeup artist behind the brand. Every year they launch a … [Read more...]

Origins launch in M&S Beauty

A curated range of Origins heroes and best-selling products is on offer, and beauty experts will be on hand to offer skincare advice.

M&S Night Cream Waiting List

If you haven't tried it yet, then get on the list, because, apparently, Marks and Spencer's Formula The Absolute Ultimate Sleep Cream is THE beauty musthave of 2017! It promises to give skin eight hours of sleep – or at least look like it has – and the results don’t disappoint. So much so that the cream is a total sell out both in store and online. Why? Well, this night cream  - or  sleep cream  - banishes fatigued looking skin, restores … [Read more...]

Stocking Fillers! What are they? Little things? Or big things? Maybe your stocking will be filled with novelty treats, or maybe just one or two choice items, stocking filler-sized. I've chosen a few of my favourite beauty stocking fillers, from the cheapest novelty items to a few more expensive pieces everyone would love to find in their stocking beside the obligatory clementine and coin.

Eyelure at Marks and Spencer

Eyelure are another brand now available at the ever-expanding Marks and Spencer Your Beauty. Eyelure repackaged and revamped their products recently, and the packaging is great. It has an almost masculine vibe to it, don't you think? A sort of vintage, apothecary style. But what of the products? Well, there are loads, and they're all pretty good. I've just tried out the Eyelure Permanent Tint for Brows (£9.95), which was something new for me - … [Read more...]

Stila launch at M&S Your Beauty

Marks and Spencer are adding another fantastic brand to their already brilliant Your Beauty portfolio, with Stila launching at stores from April 17. They may not be getting it right with their clothes, but give the beauty hall a go. They stock some seriously good beauty brands in there. Stila are an iconic makeup brand for me. They launched in 1994, created by famed celebrity makeup artist Jeanine Lobell, and who doesn't remember their amazing … [Read more...]
