Beauty essential: Mac's marvellous new makeup bags

mac.jpg

With winter trends to follow, and new products to try (like Mac's Gareth Pugh collab), our makeup bag is buckling under the strain. Luckily, Mac have launched a roomy new range of beauty bags designed by Mariza Scotch.

There's three styles to chose from and the two above are our faves.

We'll be picking up the red Mariza one with it's deep zipped compartment to keep our favourite shades safe on the move. It'll fit in our handbag perfectly, stand out when we need an impromptu touch-up and even has it's own mirror fob.

For weekends away and day-to-day, we'll stash all our other hero products' in envelope-style Mariza two. Mac saves the day once again!

Mac Mariza Scotch, from £27 available at Maccosmetics.co.uk.

Nicole, Tulisa and, now, Snooki. Oh yes, our favourite Jersey Shore lady has unveiled her debut perfume called, er, Snooki.

Curry Perfume: Yay or Nay?

Tears-on-my-pillau-image-01.jpg

Before we discuss the finer details of this new scent, we're going to hit you with the name so you can sit with your head in your hands/laugh/cry/all of the above for a while.

It's called: 'Tears on my Pilau'. See what they've done there...

Back to the important stuff, this perfume was created as part of National Curry Week by a restaurant in Surrey. It's still in the research stage so you can't rush out and buy it yet, but their aim was to create the smell of a street in Mumbai. The press release assures us that the blend of fragrant oils, exotic spices, cumin, chilli and herbs isn't too overpowering. But that it does 'linger for a full twenty-four hours'. Just like the real deal then.

Would you wear Tears on my Pilau (the name doesn't get any better, does it?!)? Vote below...

New beauty crush alert: Camilla Belle

130216496.jpg

How amazing does American actress Camilla Belle look?

We love everything about her red carpet style. From the sophisticated side-parted up-do to the minimal smoky eye, perfectly-plucked brows and statement pout. She's probably got her Brazilian mother to thank for that flawless olive skin.

This picture's already been filed under 'gorgeous' in our party season inspiration book.

Synthetic skin: The end of botox?

76651059.jpg

Scientists in America have apparently developed the world's first synthetic skin, which could mean the end of botox in a few years.

According to American tech blog ZDnet, the transparent skin-like structure can stretch to at least twice it's normal size and still bounce back to its original shape. This means it could revolutionise anti-ageing.

The 'skin' is still in the research stage at the mo. We'll be sticking to our trusty No 7 Protect and Perfect for a while yet...
