Hello my lovelies,
Just been for a long lunch so not feeling very beautiful – in fact, feeling like an over-stuffed sausage so I’m going to answer some of your beauty questions (to the best of my abilities!).
I’ve had a couple of queries about the Bad Gal Blue mascara from BeneFit. Now, I’m a big fan and I haven’t loved a coloured mascara since the ill-fated FCUK cosmetics range in Boots (loved Moonie, the greeny blue, sob for discontinuation). On its own, the effect is very strong – this really is an electric blue blue blue so not for the faint hearted. I wore it one day in New York on a bit of a whim and got some very funny looks up the Empire State Building – but then I like a funny look. For a more subtle look, I would use original Bad Gal or Get Bent and just tip your lashes with this baby.
Another thing I’ve been asked about is hand cream. Now, I have a complete phobia of Madonna claws so I moisturise my hands religiously, whenever I moisturise my face, when I get into work, when I’m leaving work, whenever I wash my hands – you get the picture – so I’ve usually got a few tubes on the go.
At the moment, I’ve got a tube of Dove Protective Hand-Balm at my desk which I love because it’s not greasy, it’s a lovely cream gel type formula and it sinks in right away, leaving your hands feeling refreshed. At home, I’m using Soap&Glory Hand Food which is really rich and creamy and perfect to put on at bedtime. And both are a complete steal at under £4 each!
If you need something to use on the go, use the Dove. If you want something really rich, go Soap&Glory.
You can find Bad Gal Blue at HQ Hair.com, Dove in all high street beauty retailers and supermarkets and Soap&Glory exclusively at Boots.
Hope that helps!
