Adding to the Surf line headed up by the Surf Spray, is Surf Foam Wash Shampoo and Surf Creme Rinse Conditioner. The idea is that the haircare – infused with salt and containing Sea Fennel and Sea Kelp – help to set the foundations for perfect beachy hair, adding body, texture, airiness and softness.To keep it from destroying all the bodybuilding work of the shampoo and conditioner set, the conditioner isn’t a heavy cream like you’d expect – instead it’s a light, milky formula that won’t weigh hair down.
We wondered what Ciate would think up as the next medium in their wildly successful manicure kits after the Velvet and Caviar ones – glitter was the clear winner for the upcoming party season, so Ciate are launching the Ciate Sequined Manicure Nail Kit! It works in just the same way as the other two […]
Hallowe’en is the best time of year if you’re a beauty junkie – not only do you get to spend hours doing some elaborate makeup looks, but you get to use all of the weird products you bought that you never normally get to use! Like green eyelashes and red eyeshadow (although if you’re looking […]
When we first got to the backstage area of Stationers Hall where the GILES show was taking place today, we were surprised to see the models sporting elaborately braided hairstyles – surprised because it’s far from the style Giles Deacon usually goes for a casual wavy look. But then it turned out that the braids were just a part of the loose wavy look that Giles has gone for this season, as a part of promotion of the curling wand.
It must be so much fun to be Poppy King. We met up with the lipstick maven a few weeks ago to talk about her Lipstick Queen line, and she told us that pretty much whenever she thinks of a lipstick she wants but doesn’t have, she just makes one. Amazing. This is how her […]
Kristen Stewart goes one of two ways for an event: there’s the no-effort, bedraggled look (like at last year’s Met Ball) and then there’s the edgy, high-fashion Kristen she brings out for special occasions (like when she did these eyes) – apparently this year’s Met Ball was one such occasion. You do have to give […]
After beauty, a cake is my next favorite thing – eating it, making it, talking about it, whatever. So MAC’s combination of the two, Baking Beauties, has got me very excited. The collection is inspired by Marie Antoinette-esque frosted confections, with pastel colored products with some mouth-watering names and some beautiful campaign imagery. I wish […]
It’s World Water Day today, so what better a time to talk about water cleansers?! There isn’t one frankly. Cleansing waters have become super-popular lately due to the sudden vogue for micellar waters, probably sparked by our now easy access to the backstage area at fashion week and every makeup artist in the world’s love […]
Ghd Creative Director Kenna has given us some tips on how to achieve the perfect pony – read through his steps to recreate it below: it’s all in the shine and the parting.

Recently – thanks to the whole colorful eye trend that tends to come around every summer – I’ve been quite intrigued by pink eyeshadow and liner. Normally I would never have dreamed that this would be a good idea, but after this I kind of love it. However, it’s one of those tricky colors that […]
The summer makeup collection from Clarins draws on an appropriately exotic inspiration, with palettes and lipsticks taking on motifs and colors from ancient ruins of South America. This is most obvious in the intricately designed Bronzing Palette (£30) with such beautiful engraving in the powder I didn’t want to touch it, and an equally pretty […]
Fragrance fans are going to love this new release from ck one – in a move that made me think ‘hang on, why didn’t I predict they’d do this?’, they’ve released a couple of ck one scented nail polishes! Riptide and Current smell of ck one summer, which features notes of cucumber, watermelon, and water […]
When you get above the age of 14, beauty gadgets are really the closest thing you can get to toys: opening one on Christmas is basically like opening a Barbie Camper Van (that was a really good Christmas). We’ve selected some of the most exciting releases and favorites that your loved ones would love to […]
If you’re after some bright new popping colors to add to your beauty arsenal, Sleek have pretty much knocked it out of the park with their new Candy collection.

Yves Saint Laurent have launched a brand new newest mascara, Babydoll fronted by the world’s busiest model, Cara Delevingne! Babydoll – sorry, Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils Babydoll to use its full name – has a double patent for the thin but dense brush which has a mix of sturdy thick and fine bristles: the […]
This week we’ve been playing with butter London’s new line for summer, their Summer Holiday Lacquer collection. The five-piece collection is designed to look good against the fresh-from-holiday sunkissed skin, which mine is most definitely not, but I gave it a go anyway, and I can confirm they look good on vitamin D lacking pale […]
We covered the run-up to The Hunger Games movie last year faithfully, and it’s safe to say we’ll be doing the same for the sequel, Catching Fire, the trailer for which has just been released by Lionsgate! The first film had some amazing hair and makeup, particularly from Elizabeth Banks’ character Effie, whose entirely pink […]
