Submitted by Beauty Brains Blog
Mid Brain muses:
As if recession-induced stress acne wasn’t enough to worry about, here’s an article from Science Daily that describes how women are MORE likely to shop themselves happy during rough economic times.

Victoria Jackson Alert!

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger
I’ve just come back from The Clothes Show London at Excel, where who should I find lurking on the outer stands? Victoria Jackson. Unlike Benefit and Sleek, amongst others, who were doing fabulous make overs and getting really stuck in with their largely teenage visitors, the VJ peeps were doing the [...]

Laboratoire Remede: Never Say Dry

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger

I took Laboratoire Remede Wrinkle Therapy Moisture Lift Baume on holiday to Vegas a couple of months ago. Vegas is a place of extremes in more ways than one, not least the blazing sunshine outside, the incredible dryness of the atmosphere and the fierce blasts of air-con indoors. Air-con makes my [...]

Le Metier Arrives At Liberty

Submitted by British Beauty Blogger

Well, Le Metier de Beaute has finally arrived at Liberty; I walked past the new counter earlier this week - it looked surprisingly flat and clinical given that there are some amazingly vibrant colours in the range. It’s extremely expensive; these two sets - one lip, one eye, are £65 each. [...]
