    Urban Decay Gold Griot Eyeshadow Palette (£35) is one of the star products of the new collection inspired by the art of Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988), one of whose paintings last week sold for a record-breaking $110.5…

    Sisley Phyto-Blush Twist

    May 23, 2017

    There’s something very appealing about a cream blusher in the summer – and they don’t come much more appealing packaging-wise than Sisley Phyto-Blush Twist (£43). But does it do the biz? I’ve been wearing it for the last ten days…

    Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil

    May 18, 2017

    I don’t know about you, but I have a love-hate relationship with beauty oils. I am very aware of their benefits but I absolutely hate not being able to get the damned stuff off my hands…

    Chanel launched some new additions to its Les Beiges collection last week – and tres chic they are too! As with the existing items in the Chanel Les Beiges range, the idea is that the make-up “instantly enhances…

    Benefit They’re Real Double the Lip

    May 2, 2017

    I must confess to being rather skeptical about Benefit They’re Real Double the Lip (£16.50) when I first saw it. After all, it seemed to be the lip version of the They’re Real Duo Eyeshadow Blender which…

  • Maybelline Master Strobe use

    Maybelline Master Strobing Liquid

    April 26, 2017

    First of all, a confession: Maybelline Master Strobing Liquid (£6.99) is not the kind of product I would naturally gravitate towards. Strobing sounds more like a young girl’s game; not a fortysomething’s. But, encouraged by how much…
