Submitted by Organic Beauty View Blog

Cargo At Sainsbury’s

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger

Canadian beauty brand, CARGO, and Sainsbury’s have been knocking about together for a while now, but at last it’s no longer the secret that it was. With just a small selection at a sparse number of branches, there was very little in the press about it. Now, all that’s changed and [...]

Poppy King’s Big Bang Theory

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger

Hmm - fuller lips without the sting? Sounds too good to be true. But self styled Lipstick Queen, Poppy King’s latest creation promises exactly that.
