Want to know which trend to trial and which to skip? Which product is worth investing in, and which one is the perfect dupe? Our in-house beauty buffs – from our buying team to our marketing team and everyone in between – know it all. Whether they’re road-testing the next viral must-have or looking for a new forever fragrance, they get their hands on the goods, so we don’t have to. Discover the picks that deserve a spot in your everyday collection.
The Makeup Bag Must-Haves
Clear-out those half-empty wands you have lying around (no judgement, we all have them) and take your lashes from ‘meh’ to ‘mighty’. Our Senior Cosmetics Buyer Jade heard the rumours about Maybelline’s Sky High Mascara and put it to the test.
She says: “You can believe the TikTok hype on this mascara. It is amazing and has given me longer and more defined looking lashes!”
Assistant CRM Manager Sarah has a multi-tasking go-to that she swears by. She says: “Collection’s concealer is my everyday go-go. Perfect for hiding blemishes on a daily basis as well as for contouring!”
The Instant Pick-Me-Ups
Travelling abroad may not be on the cards, RN, but Cosmetics Buyer Cornelia has got a cheat’s guide to glow goals. She says: “Like everyone, I am missing holidays at the moment! Luckily, I can get that post-holiday glow with the Missguided Instant Vacay Bronzer.”
Zainab, Assistant Marketing Manager, has been Zoom-testing our B. Cosmetics range looking for products with staying power. She says:
“My favourite product at the moment is the B. Baking Powder in Medium. It helps lock in my makeup and give a soft matte finish which is perfect as I have oilier skin – it is super easy to apply and really affordable too.”
The Finishing Touch
Looking for an uplifting spritz to switch things up? Our Senior Fragrance Buyer Jem is loving Jean Paul Gaultier Le Belle.
She says: “It’s really feminine and addictive. It has notes of Pear, Vanilla and Bergamot, which you can really identify. It is an EDP, so it lasts a long time and could be either a day or night scent.”
CRM Manager Tracy has been keeping her fave fragrance to herself until now. She says:
“Love the floral scent and the fact it stays on for so long! Lancôme’s Idole is my favourite perfume of all time and one that I get A LOT of questions about. But, I like to keep it a secret because I feel it was made for me.”
