primark workout makeup

High street favourite Primark have made a noteworthy addition to their beauty offering with the launch of their fitness-friendly cosmetics range – PS Workout.

Whilst some fit chicks work out sans make-up without fail, there are times when that just isn’t an option for the rest of the #fitfam – especially when you have to squeeze a lunchtime session into a busy working day.

Primark’s new PS Workout cosmetics is great for time-sensitive diaries, and those days when you just want an extra glow and a little pop on your cardio and weights days.

Stand up to sweat with lightweight, longwearing, natural finish make-up for face, eyes, and lips.

The extremely purse-friendly 11-piece collection features perspiration-proof and splash-proof formulas in nice and neutral colours designed to enhance natural beauty whilst withstanding your workout.

PS Workout’s hero products include a foundation stick with enough coverage to hide imperfections and a lightweight finish that provides a natural- looking glow, a sweat-resistant powder with a matte finish that will keep you looking fresh-faced throughout your gym session, a protecting SPF 50 lip balm formulated vitamin E and shea butter for outdoor workouts, and waterproof eyeliner for subtle definition.

The full collection consists of aptly-named Lip Fix Matte Long Lasting Liquid Lipstick (£2.00), Finish Line Water Resistant Eyeliner (£1.00), Shape Up Lip Liner (£1.00), No Sweat Sweat Resistant Mattifying Face Pressed Powder (£2.00), Splash Proof Waterproof Mascara (£2.00), Lightweight Foundation Stick (£2.50), and Workout Vit Me Lip balm (£1.00).

Available at Primark stores nationwide, and via stockists on 0118 9606 300.

jml simply straight brush

Ladies, convenient beauty is the name of the game nowadays. There just doesn’t seem to be enough time in the day for girls on the go, and you’re anything like me, you’ll try any contraption or formula that claims to cut down your getting ready time.

I love wearing my hair bone straight, but sometimes the thought of having to wait for it to dry (after washing it) and then having to spend a considerable amount of time straightening it strand by strand just doesn’t seem appealing.

This is where the JML Simply Straight Brush (£39.99) comes in and saves the day. The almost prodigious idea of an affordable alternative to traditional straighteners that simultaneously brushes and straightens my hair without damaging it is music to my ears – the JML Simply Straight Brush does just that.

Specifically designed to be able to effortlessly style the back of your hair as easily as the front, it features ceramic-coated bristles, an LCD display digital temperature control with a heat range of 150c-185c to combine the power of a straightener with the gentle detangling and styling ability of a brush.

The styling tool also features an auto shut-off safety feature; perfect for those crazy mornings that have you rushing out of your bedroom in a hurry, and accidentally leaving your straighteners on. Guilty.

This handy beauty essential is suitable for all types. The ceramic-coated bristles lift hair at the root to deliver gentle heat around every strand. Smoothing and relaxing the hair whilst maintaining its natural volume. It’s also compact which is perfect for travel, and last-minute styling.

Dry your hair if wet, set the temperature to suit your hair type, and glide through with ease.

Et voilà, sleek hair minus the potential heat damage. It makes perfect sense.

Available at JML Direct, Boots, Superdrug, and Debenhams.

Dear longstanding M.A.C fragrance fans,

M.A.C’s new version of Air of Style is set to be extremely popular this season. The aptly named scent encourages the wearer to ‘be bold and to walk confidently with an air of style’.

Whilst the fragrance has been described as a ‘lush white floral scent’, it also features a contemporary juxtaposition of warm woody, leather and spicy notes too.

An opening of dried red dates, wild peonies, and white pepper set the tone, followed by a bouquet-like heart of absolute tuberose, orange blossom, jasmine, ylang-ylang and orris. A background of leather blended with rare woods add depth whilst vertiver aligns itself with creamy hints of tonka beans and golden drops of amber crystals to finish.

M.A.C Air of Style comes in three sizes: 6ml rollerball (£14), 20ml (£20), and 50 ml (£35). Available at all M.A.C locations, 0370 034 2676, and

‘Just one spritz will turn any stride into a strut’.

Dearest beauty bunnies,

I hope you’ve had a fabulous start to 2016 so far. What better way to kickstart the new year than with a new range from one of my personal skincare favourites: NUXE?

Introducing the NUXE Splendieuse range – designed to refresh the skin, revitalise the skin, and even out your complexion. The range includes: NUXE Splendiuese Serum 30ml (£33), NUXE Splendieuse Cream 50ml (£30), NUXE Splendiuese Fluid 50ml (£30), and NUXE Splendiuese Anti-Dark Spot Perfecting Mask – x6 sachets x 21ml (£30).


Let’s hone in on the NUXE Splendieuse Anti-Dark Spot Perfecting Mask in particular. This brightening and pigmentation wonder features x6 individually cut cotton sheet masks infused with super-ingredients such as Stargazer Lilys, Porcelain Rose, White Crocus, and Vitamin C that all work together to encourage instantaneous skin-perfecting and radiance revival. The 85% natural complex targets blemishes, age spots, sun spots, hormonal change spots and everything in between.

To use:
Gently cleanse your face and pat dry with a clean cotton towel. Firmly place one NUXE Splendieuse Anti-Dark Spot Perfecting cotton sheet mask onto your face, making sure that the mask adheres well to the skin. Leave it on to work for 10 minutes, then remove the mask carefully and massage in any leftover essence. Use weekly for best results.

Et voilà! After just 10 minutes, the skin perfection process begins. The skin regains its radiance and freshness, and the appearance and number of dark spots are visibly reduced day by day; leaving you with a clear complexion and a fresher look all-round.

Suitable for women of all ages and skin types.

Brows, brows, brows. It’s all about great brows.

Step up and stay on top of your brow game with the new Eylure Brow Tamer collection. This new range features the Eylure Brow Amplifier (£9.95), Eylure Brow Luminizer (£7.45), Eylure Brush & Wand Duo (£6.50), and Eylure Brow Comb Tweezers (£12.50).

The Eylure Brow Ampflier is my favourite. It comes in three shades: Dark Brown, Mid Brown, and Blonde. The long lasting brush-on fibre gel defines and highlights the brows whilst intensifying colour and (most importantly) keeping everything in place.
