The Emperor’s New Clothes: N V Perricone

The Emperor's New Clothes: N V Perricone
Now that reviews of Perricone’s wonder scent, Neuropeptide Synergy are starting to emerge, some beauty reviewers are thinking it might actually be working. Dab the anti-ageing aromatic on your top lip to get the maximum anti-anxiety and mental clarity benefits. Or possibly don’t bother….because each dab will cost you around about five pounds, and for... Read More

Eye Candy: Chantecaille

Eye Candy: Chantecaille
The beauty brand, Chantecaille is notoriously expensive, but converts don’t mind shelling out – especially when 68 pounds buys you something this lovely. The rose decoration on the shadows is technological brilliance and requires precision laser cutting – no easy task when you consider how fine and delicated eye shadow is. Laser cutting isn’t a... Read More

Brilliant Organisation: Estee Lauder

Brilliant Organisation: Estee Lauder
Every year I get a Debrett’s/Estee Lauder Pink Ribbon Diary – and love it. Perfectly proportioned, it’s actually a rather good read too, since the back section contains a wealth of information such as international clothing conversions, where to buy a nice cake and where to go if you want to see beautiful sculptures.

Rock & Republic Cosmetics

Right, on to the colours. Using a radically different... Read More

Style File: Givenchy
I’m completely in love with this make up palette from Givenchy; it’s got everything from the amazing Eye Fly mascara (one of my all time favourites) to the perfect lipgloss shade – in fact both are Givenchy best-sellers. The Couture Make Up Palette Eyelet edition (which suggests to me there are more to come)is on... Read More

Here It Is….YSL

Here It Is....YSL
Available currently only the states online at www.ysl.com, is my personal make up hell – the limited edition YSL Gloss Pur Black. It’s fabulously dramatic on the catwalk, livens up a fashion spread no end, but can you wear it to the pub? No. So, if you’re not a model and you’re not a goth,... Read More
