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...]

This stuff will give you that all-over radiance you feel when you're on holiday in the sun. It contains coconut oil and … [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...]

Make a date to exfoliate!

Exfoliation is key to good skin. You have to sometimes slough off those dead skin cells to let the new ones shine through. I find it particularly helpful at a few different times of the year - as spring appears, before summer holidays, at the end of summer, and in the middle of winter. Exfoliating face and body is key to maintaining healthy skin. Clarins launched three new classic style exfoliators last month - their new Face Scrubs. The … [Read more...]

Jo Malone London launch Poppy & Barley and new Glasgow boutique

This year's big Jo Malone London launch comes a month earlier than normal - with Poppy & Barley hitting stores on August 21, instead of the usual mid-September. And one of those stores you can pick it up in is the new Glasgow store. You can now find Jo Malone London on Buchanan Street, instead of Prince's Square. The new store also has a whole host of exclusives for you to enjoy - and it's a beautiful space. The new store offers an … [Read more...]

Friday Face Mask: Erborian Matte & Glow Shot Masks

Face Masks had that moment where everyone was doing them, all the time. The more instagrammable the better it seemed. How they looked on seemed to be more important than what they did (if anything) for a while there. I think we reached 'peak masking', and something else came along to draw the influencers in, but I still love a good face mask, and I do like a sheet mask most of all - they are easy to use, simple to apply, and they give you that … [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...]
