Hot and Not!

Hot:

Bourjois Eyelash Applicator - if like me you've never been able to get false eyelashes just right, then this nifty tool from Bourjois should help. I never wear false lashes simply because I can't apply them properly. The eyelash applicator has just launched and costs only £3.99. Sure to sell out everywhere get it quickly at Boots and Superdrug
Ciate sequin manicure - first came caviar, then velvet, now sequin! Never one to rest on their laurels, Ciate have yet again caused much excitement in the beauty world with their latest innovation. Available at Selfridges from October, there are three different colours. Priced at £15. I can't wait!


Maybelline Smokey Eyes - I can't wait to try this, I love smokey eyes and Maybelline have created a special mascara for smokey eyes which gives huge volume with its collagen formula and has kohl pigments to give the ultimate smokey eye effect. I love Maybelline for their mascaras so this is sure to be a winner. Only £5 from Superdrug at the moment!



Not:

24 Carat Gold Leggings - another product for those with more money than sense I feel. These leggings contain 24 carat gold to minimise the signs of ageing on the legs and cost £74.90 - I can think of many other things to spend that money on!!


Fake promises - this week Lancome made the news for all the wrong reasons. It claimed the Genifique range boosted gene activity which the FDA states is completely inaccurate. As beauty products continue to evolve and innovate it seems the competition is going to some heads, causing them to stretch the truth. It is good though that authorities aren't letting them get away with it.

Beauty sweets - yet another thing I'm dubious about, collagen filled sweets to make you look younger. Yeh right!! Priced at £7.50 and in four different flavours this launches in October...



What have been your Hot and Not from this week?

  1. I'm going to have to try the Bourjois lash applicators, I'm hopeless at applying them, so anything that might help cant' be ignored! And the mascara look fabulous too!

  3. Along the same lines as the sweets there is a new drink coming out claiming to have the same kind of effects. All a load of bull!
