Hero tool alert! No more half-used tubes




How’s this for a cool beauty tool you never knew existed? Into The Gloss featured a Jurlique ‘tube crimper’ and everyone went mad asking where to buy one. Here’s the answer. You can buy the Tube-Wringer® from Tubewringer.com in three different strengths.

No more wastage of expensive toothpaste and hand creams, or having to resort to scissoring tubes in half to eke out the contents. All we need now is a prettier version (rose gold?) – and something similar for the pump dispenser…

OMG! YSL Touche Eclat now in 7 shades!




Major news on the beauty circuit: YSL’s Touche Eclat is now available in seven shades. Having only been available in shades 1, 2 and 3 until now, the additional four shades will be available exclusively at Selfridges from May 19th. You can read more about this wondrous development on Musings of a Makeup Artist and British Beauty Blogger but suffice to say, this is pretty exciting news.

Coincidentally, I’m down to my last click of Touche Eclat (shade no 3) – my only criticism of this product is you never know it’s going to run out – but I can’t eke out what’s on the brush for another 4 weeks. Good job then that Ellis Faas has been in touch this week to offer a trial of their concealer. Like Touche Eclat, it comes in a brush/pen applicator and is available in eight shades. Mine should be here any day so I’ll report back on my findings…

What do you think of Touche Eclat? Do you find the existing three shades limiting or have you found an equally good product from another (cheaper?) brand?
