Barry M Wink Felt tip eyeliner

I love the name of this product- I think it’s very playful and fun, and the fact that I love hot pink , well, it’s the best of all worlds. Wink is the new Barry M felt tip eyeliner pen and promises to give you feline flicks with ease. i’m a big fan of felt tip applicators as they’re easy to use and better for girls with less than steady hands.

£4.59 from Barry M

Topshop Makeup WarPaint Nail Varnish NOTD

I’m consistently impressed with both the quality and price of ther Topshop makeup collection. They really have created an affordable line of products that deliver and their nail varnish shades are always striking- and on trend. This is product 001 in their nail varnish collection- entilted ‘Warpaint’. The image they show of it makes it look firebox red, but the reality (above) is actually more coral-red, with orange undertones and a high shine finish. You need two coats to get good coverage and it will chip VERY quickly, so you’re looking at 2 days of wear on average.

£5 from Topshop.

BaByliss Big Hair Product Review

There’s a couple of thimgs I look for in a hair styling tool. My goal is thick shiny straight hair and anything that manages one out of those three requirements is pretty good. The Babyliss Big Hair purports to give you added volume- great for the seventies trend that’s sweeping the catwalk- but would it live up to expectations?

The brush is BIG, so be warned. I was surprised by how wide the barrel was- my hands could barely close around it and it wasn’t especially light either. It features a brush head with a big barrel grip, and comes with a purple brush head protector. The Babyliss Big Hair has three heat settings, cool, warm and hot and two buttons to make it rotate in different directions. It comes with a super skinny (yay) manual which basically tells you to use it on wet or dry hair, and rotate sections till they tighten to create hair oomph.

Royal Wedding Nail Collection from Nails Inc

Royal Wedding season is almost upon us  (yay Princess Kate Middleton and Prince William in a tuxedo) and Nails Inc want to celebrate!  I love the fact that they created a pretty graphic that shows Will painting Kate’s nails, and they have the varnishes to match!

They’ve created some limited edition shades for you to show your support for the monarchy (OK, they’re just pretty). Called Kate and Will, Kate is a nude shade with a shiny sapphire  crystal cap, and Will has the Union Jack cap and is a bright red shade.

For those who like a little less glitz there is also a four piece Royal Collection which features four regal shades all named after Royal places: Deep purple is Windsor,  Gold is called Westminster Abbey, Royal Red is named Sandringham and Balmoral is a nude.

£25 for the Royal Collection from Nails Inc, £15 for the limited edition bottles.

Chanel pop up cinema in Selfridges.. in a giant Chanel bottle

Many happy hours have been spent wandering the fabulous Selfridges emporium, eyeing up lovely leather goods and playing in the perfume hall till I smelt like a scent bomb. Chanel have just announced that they’ll be showing their brand new Chanel Coco Mademoiselle advert starring Keira Knightley in store, and have created a mini pop up cinema to do so.

You walk into the seating area through a giant Coco Chanel bottle and take a seat in the Chanel decorated room to watch Keira pout and pose, and take an interactive journey round the Selfridges beauty hall. Hey, I’d be happy just to sit down after all that shopping! There will also be freebies- if you answer questions about Chanel’s founder (Gabrielle Chanel) correctly you get ‘a luxurious souvenir’ (whilst stock lasts. I doubt it’s a Chanel bag, but even samples would be cool.

I love the moped featured in the video- though beige is so not a practical colour to wear for riding!

Open from TODAY till the 30th March 2011 at Selfridges, Oxford Street, London.

New MAC Collection artwork to enjoy

MAC have been doing some cool stuff on the makeup front lately. They’ve had their cool Wonder Woman/ Foursquare giveaway, the Quite Cute collection, which I’m less than thrilled with, and the forthcoming Prep and Prime Collection which sounds brilliant. I can now reveal some cool new artwork for their new collections (cos who doesn’t love their pictures?) for you to ogle. The Prep and Prime artwork (below) shows ethereal looking models looking ghostly and other-worldy, and very, very lovely.

I can also tell you that April will see the release of The Bronze Everyday MAC range which will feature a Skinsheen Leg Spray (£21) and four new shades of Bronzing Powder (£17.50), plus extra bronzing products. Well, summer is coming!
