What's Hot; What's Not

Oh it's been a busy week in the beauty world!


Diptyque Holiday Candles - this week these gorgeous things were launched. I love a candle. I love Diptyque. I love pretty colours. Tick, tick, tick. There is Orange Chaya, with notes of orange and cardamom, cinnamon and ginger; Écorce de pin, which has pine, cedar and patchouli and Encens des Indes which includes incense, myrrh, rose and cornflower (I think this one would be my fave). £45 for large, £25 for small, available now from SpaceNK

Eyelid art - this story came out this week. Make-up artist, Tal Peleg, uses eyelids as her blank canvas. Search for her on Instagram. Obviously totally unwearable in real life, but what she does is incredible. Perhaps eyelid art will become the new nail art?!

MAC Maleficent Collection - MAC has created a limited-edition collection for this new Disney film next year, with Maleficent played by Angelina Jolie. They have yet to confirm it will come to the UK, but fingers crossed. There will be 11 products, all sure to be stunning…images hopefully coming very soon!


Fried Chicken Candle Anyone? Yes this is real and has gone on sale this morning. A candle with the fragrance of fried chicken. Hmmm

Fast Food Nails - Another fast food beauty thing. Why?? Launched this week into Urban Outfitters, decorate your nails with pizza slices, pretzels, burgers and hotdogs. You know, if you're really into that thing. Anyone…? No.

Concealer fail - I felt so sorry for Sophie Ellis-Bextor when these pics came out at the beginning of the week. Someone surely noticed? I know the flash of the paps makes it worse but blend, blend, blend people!

What do you think of this week's Hot and Not?



  1. Omg what an awful picture. Poor her!

  2. A fried chicken candle?! No! When I first moved to London, I lived in a road that was seemingly full of fried chicken shops - never again!
