The Beauty Edit: L’Oreal Collection Privee, Kiko & Ted Baker Beauty

The new beauty collection from Ted Baker was inspired by the 1920s and is packaged with gift giving in mind. The Great & The Gorgeous Gift set contains:

• Bronzer (7.4g)
• 2 x Lip Crayons (2.1g each)
• Eye Liner Pen (0.5ml)
• 2 x Eye Creams (5.8g each)
• Eye Glitter (1.6g)
• 2 x Nail Varnishes (9ml each)
• Pink Illuminating Liquid (9ml)
• Gold Illuminating Liquid (9ml)


Not bad for £40!

The L’Oreal Color Riche Collection Privee (£8.19) is a range of custom-made nude lipsticks created in collaboration with L’Oreal spokesmodels with the idea that there is a shade to suit every skin tone.


Cheryl Cole, Frieda Pinto, Julianne Moore, Liya Kebede, Eva Longoria and Doutzen Kroes created the shades available in the UK.

Cheryl is for honey complexions, Frieda for those with caramel tones, Julianne for pale skins, Liya for dark skinned lovelies (can’t find this shade anywhere!) Eva for golden complexions and Doutzen for fair skins.

Whatever your shade, L’Oreal have tried to create something ‘nude’ for you.

The KIKO Precision Eyebrow Pencil (£5.90) is perfect for those of us who are trying to grow out their brows. I’m not trying to emulate Cara D (her brows look great on her but would look like caterpillars on me) just trying to mask years of enthusiastic plucking. The pencil is made of hard waxes to ensure the colour stays put. The other end of the pencil is a handy brow brush so you can ensure a natural smudge and no harsh lines. A sharpener is also included.

Three of the Best: Day Creams for Dry Skin

As the weather continues to conspire against me, I’m having to really up my skin and hair care routine. The cold, wind and recent snow sometimes literally hurt my face so I’ve had to switch my usual moisturiser for something slightly richer.

I’m rotating between these three:

day cream for dry skin (2)

L’Oréal Paris Dermo-Expertise Hydrafresh Active Day Cream
L’Oréal Paris Dermo-Expertise Hydrafresh Active Day Cream is enriched with calcium, magnesium and vitamins C, E and B5 and it hydrates the skin without weight it down. Of the three creams listed, this one feels the lightest on the skin. It goes on like a cream/gel hybrid and has a very pleasant fresh scent. It moisturises the skin very well and, although it’s meant for normal to combination skin, I found it rich enough to use in this harsher weather as it moisturises very well.

L’Oréal Paris Dermo-Expertise Hydrafresh Active Day Cream – £6.99/50ml

REN Ultra Moisture Day Cream
The Ultra Moisture Day Cream from natural skincare pioneers REN. With bio extracts of Phytostimuline peptide, Hyaluronic acid, and Omega 6 ceramide, it’s thick and creamy without being greasy and it stops that dry, taut feeling you get when it’s cold.
My face feels moisturised and soft and as the cream also protects against free radicals, I know my face is protected from environmental pollutants and the harsh winter sun. REN Ultra Moisture Day Cream is meant for dry skins but in this weather I think it is perfect for normal to combination skin too.

The Organic Pharmacy Double Rose Ultra Face Cream
This face cream is for the seriously dry and dehydrated. With Evening Primrose, Rose Hip and Rose oils, this cream bring instant relief to the driest of skins. If you have normal or oily skin the Double Rose Ultra Face cream might be too much, but in winter, even my combination skin has been in need of extra moisture and this seriously luxurious cream more than delivers. I find it rich enough to use as a night cream too and a little goes a long way so the pot should last for a fair amount of time.
