Hot But Not Bothered

Hot But Not Bothered
I found Jaily’s Intimate Beauty Wipes, £16.50, at a trade show in Paris last year. In her own very discrete French way, creator Valerie Myevs refers to anywhere below the naval and above the thighs as her ‘intimacy’. While in the UK we are not particularly open to discussing personal pongs, these wipes for the... Read More

Dotty Mixtures

Dotty Mixtures
RMK’s Spring 08 collection, ‘Shiny Mix Dots’ is innovative, quirky and extraordinarily clever. Using a scramble of three dots of colour for each Shiny Mix Eye Shade, £18 and Shiny Mix Cheeks, £16, the result on skin is a sheer, irridescent wash that’s bang on trend for going into spring. There’s some blurb in the... Read More

At 22, Edward Bess has already dabbled in the world of modelling in London, before designing his uber-sleek Lipstick Wardrobe, $350, exclusively at Bergdorf Goodman. I know its a British Beauty Blog, but come on, it’s gorgeous, so let’s overlook the fact that it’s not here yet. Bess’s Deep Shine Lip Glosses, $26, are fig... Read More

Designer Wet Wipes

Designer Wet Wipes
Loving the in-your-face luxury take on an everyday, utilitarian item. Prada Infusion D’iris Refreshing Mono Use Towels – could only find the $ price, so maybe they haven’t reached our shores yet ($60) – are a great example of crazy-beauty. But I still want them…. What next, though. Chanel No5 scented doggie-do bags? Hey…..let me... Read More

This delicious Dior Spring Blossom Palette, £32, is exactly the kind of make up that keys into our shopping gene. You don’t quite know what it does, but you want it anyway because it’s gorgeous. If you’re baffled by how to use it, I suggest swirling a big fat blush brush over it to highlight... Read More

But What Does It Do????

But What Does It Do????
Pet peeve coming up. Ren, fabulous skincare brand, known for it’s ‘clean’ ethics – no petrochemicals, sulphates, parabens etc, etc, have gone bonkers. Their latest anti-ageing cream is called Sirtuin Phytohormone Replenishing Cream, containing Sirtuin Activators, Perlecan Activators, and Phytosteroids. Gosh, and here’s me without a chemistry degree. It just doesn’t make any sense at... Read More

Is it, or isn’t it?

Can’t get to the bottom of the Sephora own brand coming to Marks & Spencer. The general view is that it probably isn’t – M&S talk to other brands all the time, and it’s rare to see anything other than own label actually on the shelves. However, watch this space until I get the definitive... Read More
