Topshop Blush Stick

Topshop Blush Stick in Sneakpeek £10

In Sneakpeek, a pink, and Acting Up, a pale orange, the new 
Blush Stick from Topshop is a gorgeous product. A small, twist up
tube in clear plastic and silver packaging, this cream blusher delivers 
transparent, sheer, subtle colour to the cheeks. The Sneakpeek pink
I tested creates a lovely lavender pink pearl finish, a glowing effect with 
an unusual matte appearance. The convenience of this product is its easy 
application. Apply the Topshop Blush Stick straight from the tube to the 
upper cheekbones and blend lightly with the heat of your fingertips. 
User reviews suggest this product is sometimes a difficult one to blend 
over foundation so it is possibly a blusher to wear by itself on 
moisturised skin or blend correctly with a professional makeup brush. 
£10 for 4g. A gorgeous product. Available from Topshop stores 
nationwide or buy online.

Alexander McQueen i-D magazine November 2012

Alexander McQueen i-D magazine November 2012

In October 1993, Alexander McQueen presented his first runway collection 
for Spring/Summer 1994 upstairs at the Bluebird Garage on the King's 
Road, London. He was greeted the next day by outraged newspaper 
headlines, one of which read 'Theatre of Cruelty', so shaken were the 
journalists and editors by what they saw. The dresses worn by the
deranged-acting models were covered in rust resembling dried blood 
stains, suggesting something violent in an unstable atmosphere. I 
attended this show for The Face magazine myself and unintimidated, I 
observed the number of journalists and editors who left in a disturbed 
manner before the show ended. Alexander McQueen went on to become 
one of the most significant and inventive designers in the history of fashion, 
so complete was his design vision. Like the uniqueness of the Alexander 
McQueen garment in the photo, in the hands of a genius, clothing 
develops and evolves, that is, it is changed and progresses technically 
  and visually, and fashion is as legitimate an area of design as any other.
The incredible Lee Alexander McQueen 17 March 1969 - 11 February
2010. Rest In Peace.

Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm

In Passion, Twilight, Frenzy, Beloved, Forbidden, Gothic, and Flame - 
the vivid orange pink I tested, the new Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm by Revlon
is a felt-tip marker pen. Containing a sheer wash of colour formulated 
from water-based pigments - the technology behind all of the current lip 
markers, the Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm is not the same 

Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm in Flame £7.99

product as the Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain which is a 
retractable chubby crayon balm in a gel formula. A pen applicator with 
the felt tip at one end and the balm at the other, the Revlon Just Bitten
Lipstain + Balm is nourishing and the stain colour is kiss-proof. The
experts at Revlon suggest you apply this 2-in-1 marker pen directly to 
dry lips. Build colour gradually to the depth and coverage required. 
Allow to dry and after thirty seconds, apply the balm for extra shine 
and added moisture. Tuning into the Spring/Summer 2013 trend for 
lipstains replacing lipstick, the Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain + Balm is 
an excellent product. For vibrant colour and intense stayablilty. 
£7.99 from Boots stores nationwide or available online

Superdry Beauty Professional Lip Glaze

Tested in Sweet Peach Colour, a slick golden glaze, the new Superdry 
Professional Lip Glaze is an update on lip gloss in a clear pen format. 
With a paint brush tip for easy, precise application, this gloss is thick 
in consistency so apply minimally. The new Superdry Professional 
Lip Glaze provides a stayable shine you can apply alone or over any 
other lip colour. Like all Superdry products including the new
Superdry Lip Paint, this is a graphically designed product. The brown 
cardboard packaging, the distinctive font in English and in Japanese in 
a superior shade of yellow, the vibrant pink silicone dispenser/grip,
these design features are already a successful Superdry signature.
Available to buy also in colours Greta Pink, Rose Pink, Shocking 
Pink and Supply Red at or at Superdry stores
nationwide and worldwide. £7.50.
