Repstyle Collection in Crocadilly and Snake it Up, [a target="_blank" href="">£9.99[/a] each

Bold lips and nails were all over the catwalks at LFW so make a statement this weekend with these fab new magnetic polishes from Essie. Hover the magnet over wet nails for a super sophisticated fishnet-esque finish.

Benefit's Pore-fessional,[a target="_blank" href=""> £23.50[/a]

'This week I'm loving Benefit's Pore-fessional. It has such a silky smooth feel to it and the texture is so perfect on my skin. My skin really suffered during Fashion Week so it's great to 'cheat' and have refreshed looking skin, even if I don't feel it.'

Bourjois Rouge Edition lipsticks, [a target="_blank" href="">£5.99[/a]

'Bourjois Rouge Edition lipsticks not only have a shade for everyone but their buttery-soft hydrating formula coat lips with ease and last all day. Thanks to their pigmented formula one coat is perfect for a full coverage bright lip or pat down for a slight tint of colour.'

MAC's Pearlmatte face powder in Flatter Me, [a target="_blank" href="">£21.50[/a]

'This pearlmatte powder is as pretty on the face as it is in the compact. The pinky-pearl highlighter embossed with coral-bright hearts gives you a glowing, soft peach flush when swirled together and swept across your cheeks. It is one of those beautiful dual products that adds radiance to your complexion as well as giving you a pop of colour that is just perfect for Spring. The packaging is pretty cute too!'

Laura Mercier Creme Eye Liner in Cobalt and Expresso,[a target="_blank" href=",default,pd.html%20%20"> £18.50[/a]

'Laura Mercier have brought out these brand new creme liners in cute little pots, I love the bright cosmic blue shade, it's so on trend for SS13! The richly pigmented shades are simply gorgeous, they glide on perfect and last all day.'

Avène Gentle Purifying Scrub, [a target="_blank" href="">£9.50[/a]

What’s not to love about this pink scrub? Infused with Avène Thermal Spring water and jam-packed with gentle micro beads, the formula is free from harsh chemicals and guarantees to leave your skin peachy clean.


Belle de Nuit Intense Eau de Parfum, [a target="_blank" href="">£46[/a]

This Sunday, the Oscar for Best New Floral will be going to this newcomer from French perfume legends Fragonard. The combination of ylang-ylang, tuberose and jasmine is deceptively fresh yet sexy enough to see you through any night-time debauchery. The bottle is gorgeous too, and is the perfect addition to any boudoir.


ghd IV Mint Professional Styler, [a target="_blank" href="">£110[/a]

Given up sweets for Lent? These beauties are part of ghd’s new Candy Collection and guarantee to satisfy even the sweetest tooth.  What’s more, they’ll last you far longer than any pack of Haribo ever would…


Indeed Pepta-bright, [a target="_blank" href="">£29[/a]

This is the ultimate spring clean for skin, promising to restore your natural glow whilst tackling hyperpigmentation and dark spots. The cream-serum formula absorbs easily and is the perfect base for your regular moisturiser. Don’t be deceived by the small 30ml size- this little bottle really does pack a punch and is even suitable for sensitive skin.
