Friday’s beauty hot list:
Revlon Colorstay Creme Gel Eyeliner, £8.99. A clever design where the applicator brush is stored in the lid. Pull out the brush, flip, and reinsert to create a long handled eyeliner brush for greater control. The soft, creamy pitch black glides on and unlike some long lasting liners, doesn’t set too fast so you have time to blend. Use the brush on its side for the finest line. This is brilliant for creating both a classic winged cat eye or a softer smokier line to define.
Dr Jart Water Max Sleeping Mask, £26. Newly arrived at Boots from Korea this is an intensive overnight moisturiser. It’s going to be perfect as the temperature starts to drop, radiators go on and skin starts to turn up its heels and dehydrate. Two full pump’s worth is ample for face and neck. Unlike other masks it sinks in, so don’t worry about marking the pillow.
Olay Regenerist 3-Point Treatment Cream Fragrance Free, £19.99. Cheaper skincare often lets itself down with its scent, which can smell cheap or too heavy. For me, the new, scent free version of this light, fluffy moisturiser is a plus, as well as its luxurious yet quick to absorb texture.
Lyn Harris Le Cologne, £25. For those not in the know, Lyn is behind Miller Harris, the British scent company known as much for its divine floral packaging as its lovely scents. Now, Lyn has designed six scents for Marks & Spencer at a fraction of the cost including this. Billed for men it’s also great on a woman thanks to vetiver and amber, which after an initial hit of bergamot, lemon and rosemary give it warmth that’s chic not sultry. Brilliant value, do check out all six to see which you like best.
Jergens Deep Conditioning Oatmeal Body Cream, £4.99. Rich, whipped cream for dry arms and legs with a mouthwatering, comforting caramel scent. Inhaling it is almost as satisfying as a nice creamy toffee without the calories. A great basic – apply to warm, slightly damp skin after a bath.
