Loving wonder woman!

Having taken a trip to Selfridges this week, one was greeted with a gigantic 50ft wonder woman cut out, despite being on the 4th floor it still wasn’t possible to escape the girl! So of course a trip to MAC was a no brainer….having checked out the range and making purchases(purely based on packaging btw) it was decided to give this stuff a thumbs up!
Why? Well in large part because the packing was genius and retro, it just has to be part of the make up kit. although some of the products seemed like a replica of existing ranges( MAC has so many shades and products that slight variation are inevitable) the shades were fairly wearable and usable I.e multi functional product such as the shimmer pots being one

Our verdict- if you’re needing a change from your usual or want to treat a friend MAC’s wonder woman rang is definitely an option!

matters of the skin!

Mild Acne, pigmentation, stretch marks, rosacea, malasma and so many more skin problems can often be aided to repair with the help of the right product and this brand is one of them!

The Pinkcrust team are all fixated on the Mario Badescu range. here are a list of reasons why(you ready?)
*the range has a variety of products targeted at common skin problems for all over the body
*being that this line is very close to a specialist skin care range, its products are very reasonable
*the range is actually effective!

one of the favourites amongst the pinkcrust girlies is the glycollic foaming wash, which is an exfoliation treatment for mild pigmentation with the effect of brightening the skin (after using this for 2 months, it was is amazingly effective because it cleaned ,brightened and evened out skin tone without drying stripping or irritation.)
some other products worth trying are;

Rolling Cream Peel With AHA

Seaweed Cleansing Soap

A.H.A. & Ceramide Moisturizer

This is a range covers everything, we can only recommend you try it

Oscar nails

Having studied the red carpet celebrity nails, we have concluded that nude nails was the trend of the day (and most likely the next coming months)….

Which promptly reminded us of our ‘ no fail’ french mani favourite Orly’s Angel face. Why? consistency isΒ  “creamy” giving good coverage and the colour absolutely results in perfect looking clean and tidy nails. Excellent worn alone or with a white tip! however it was duely noted that Anne Hathaway’s natural nails were down to high-end brand Deborah Lippmann polish in ‘I dreamed you’. However if you need to get your hands on a cheaper high street alternative, we highly recommend Bourjois ‘so laque’ in ‘rose Lounge’-it offers excellent shine, longevity, superb consistency, wide brush for easier coverage…guess you catch our drift, get this!!


LFW inspiration……

Day 3 @ London Fashion week saw uber gorgeous models grace the catwalk for Vivienne Westwood and Temperly! Jenny Longworth nails sponsored by Revlon was running the show for talons backstage for Temperly. Our gal, Hella was also amongst the JLN(for Revlon) team. Gucci Westman(for Revlon) was the creator of the fab smoky purple eyeΒ  and hot red lip look! (we told you purple smokey eyes were hot, didn’t we…uh huh)

The nails?

We were very impressed! nails were ‘peach smoothie’ from Revlons scented perfume range… “after painting a portion 0f 36 hands it was a delight to breath in something pleasant rather than the usual toxic fumes, thumbs up to Revlon for that!” -Hella. The order of the day was a very attractive nude applied to absolute precision!(a la Jenny’s instructions!)

However the PC girlies have been inspired by this chic and demure look…….so we’ve of course gone for the absolute opposite effect by embracing our latest edition to the PC colour line up which is Essies’s ‘berry hard’, our first customer to snap this up was a burlesque dancer and it was le coup de foudre for this extravagant performer(talk about perfect match…huh) and this colour was complemented with pointy oval gel nails which resulted in a total 50’s style tribute….

And some other great finds were….. Revlons quick dry top coat, it does what it says on the bottle and has proven very productive in the salon!

I guess…we’ll see you all there then!
