I must sound like a broken record when I bang on about how brilliant Bourjois’s 1 Seconde polishes are but they really are. Superior quality, fool-proof application and super quick (not quite one second per nail, mind).
New from Bourjois for November are two new additions to the range: the dark Grey To Meet You* with the foil-like Glitterizer*. The combination has received a lot of attention and earned me quite a few compliments. Glitterizer has this shattered mirror appearance yet you can still appreciate the shade of Grey To Meet You, which is a dark blue-ish grey that’s bang on trend with this season’s must-wear shade.
These two are out in November in the usual haunts, priced at £5.99 each.
If the adjective ‘bold’ was defined by a colour, my guess is it would be red. Its meaning is a willingness to take risks; confident and courageous which is precisely how I would describe The Body Shop’s latest fragrance, Red Musk*.
It’s nothing like anything the Body Shop has done, in fact it’s a rarity in itself as it’s a scent that is floral-free. Yes, totally. So if you can’t stand all that whimsical nonsense with floating petals and blooming buds then this might very well tickle your fancy. Quite ruthlessly it’s a sizzling blend of musk and spice.
Red Musk is the fourth addition to the Body Shop musk family and it’s unconventionally the naughtiest. Housed in a beautiful red gradient looking bottle it’s intensely satisfying from its smouldering blend of spiced musk flirting with notes of pepper, cinnamon and tobacco. Naturally the musk used is man-made cruelty-free, the pioneering ingredient that’s steered the Body Shop to establish its fine collection of musk based fragrances. Quite frankly I would go as far as to say it’s an audacious and erogenous concoction to suit both sexes.
I’ve been devoted to wearing it every day since I prised it out of its box. It’s such a profoundly alluring and clever arrangement and yet it does not have a heavy price tag dangling off it. A 60ml eau de parfum bottle is £20 and the whopper 100ml is £30. There is also an alcohol-free Perfume Oil 30ml bottle for £16.
I just know Red Musk will turn a lot of heads. There aren’t many fragrances which get me hot under the collar but I can’t help but be submissive to this one.
Red Musk will be available in-store nationwide and online from 4th November.
