The idea isn't new, nor is the product, but a girl always needs groomed eyebrows, and YSL's brow taming duo will keep your brows in check in style. One end gives fading brows a extra colour, and the other end, a gel, sculpts to perfection and holds them firmly in place. A perfect January pick-me-up treat.
The product of the year results have been announced, and the winners came mainly from the Procter and Gamble stable.
I'll list the winners after the cut, but I'm interested to know how much you pay attention to these 'product of the year' claims - does it influence your beauty buying? Apparently, last year's winners saw sales increase by 10%, so someone must be paying attention. But although the overall winner is voted for by consumers (but only 12,000 of them) the finalists are picked by a panel. Companies selected as finalists must pay £3,950 and winners must pay £11,000. No wonder Proctor and Gamble can afford to win so much...
Jo Wood certainly puts a little sauce into the organic beauty world. Their website features a topless model, and their bottles are of the slinky and sensual variety. The Amka Body Dew is designed to rouse your spirits and get you in a party mood. The 100% active ingredients, such as gingko and guarana, help eliminate toxins while giving you a bit of oomph to last long into the night.
This sounds quite a lot like Blinc Kiss me Mascara in that it coats the lashes individually with fibres. But it sounds like these fibres might go further than any fibre has gone before. Oops, I went a little too sci-fi there. What I mean is, while Blinc's mascara thickens, it's not so hot on the lengthening, and Imju's Fiberwig is said to give you lashes so giant they look fake. Uh oh, claims like these are just made to be tested! Has anyone tried it?
After you've cooled and warmed your feet, give them a reflexology massage. It's as easy as slipping on a pair of Holistic Silk slippers, although admittedly not that cheap at £65. As well as massaging and soothing your tired soles, the reflexology points will also boost your circulation. And if you just want a pretty pair of slippers without having your feet poked for a change, then the soles are also removable.
Give someone a not-so-subtle hint they could do with a restyle with this Mullet shampoo. Instructions state it's suitable for all mullets and rat tails (urgh!) and has a 'new muscle car scent' - whatever that means.
If you are the type of person who likes to shop from the comfort of your own home and then wait for the goodies to arrive, it's good news for MAC fans. The MAC Skincare range is now available online. The packaging has had a facelift and the 'new' range promises to include everything you'll ever need from cleansers to makeup removers, moisturisers and a few extras in between, for every skin type. They are touting the range as 'indispensable'. These are big words MAC, well one big word. Will it live up to its promise?
