What's Hot; What's Not

The best and worst from the beauty world this week...


OPI's new Germany collection for AW12! Available from August, these autumnal colours have typical OPI-esque names such as Don't Pretzel My Buttons and Don't Talk Bach To Me. I love their Holland collection and I think these will be in huge demand come Autumn. Twelve shades in total at £11 each I think my favourite is Schnapps Out of It! which is a fabulous mauve colour.

Clinique mascara swap - Get down to a Debenhams ASAP. At a Clinique concession you can give them any old mascara of yours (doesn't have to be Clinique) and they will give you either their High Impact or High Lengths mascara absolutely free. But this great offer end on 20th May so hurry!

Louboutin beauty - Perhaps one of the most exciting things is that Christian Louboutin is set to launch a new beauty range next year. Not giving too much away yet it is sure to be of the highest quality and has got the whole beauty world trembling with excitement!! It's just a shame we have to wait a year now.


The 'smartphone face' - In the papers this week it was announced that we may be in danger of getting 'smartphone face' from constantly being bent over our phones for hours each day. Apparently this leads to the neck muscles shortening and increases the gravitational pull, giving you a drooping jawline. Step away from the phone NOW

Real mink eyelashes - Coming here from America (where else?!) real mink eyelashes have now made it across the pond. Costing up to £5000 and made by brushing the live animals and using the fur it seems as though people's need for eyelashes has gone a little crazy. Leave the animals alone!

Claw feet - I don't really like feet anyway but Kate Moss this week has shown what wearing heels constantly will do. Her mangled feet were on show for all to see. Get those seen to or start wearing flats, she's tall enough anyway!

And sadly another legend died this week. RIP Donna Summer.
