Here are a selection of anti-aging and corrective serums that will ensure you won't ever look your age. Vichy Liftactiv Advanced Concentrate Daily Wrinkle Corrector ($49.50/30ml) - 0.2% pure retinol, LR2412, and hyaluronic acid visibly fill and smooth wrinkles in the short term while working to correct and prevent in

Yves Saint Laurent is taking an edgier approach with their Fall 2014 Cuirs Fétiches Collection. Think rocker chic. Sensual and rebellious. From the burnished tones to the varying textures and finishes this collection perfectly expresses the juxtaposition of leather in all its versions. "I am fascinated by the incredible depths of colour and texture of this noble material. And particularly by its different textured finishes: weathered, polished, grained, burnished… I wanted to explore the variations of leather in one

Makeup Wars | My 6 Favorite Nude Lipsticks and Lipglosses

This week the Makeup Wars team is sharing with you our favourite nude lip products. I rarely used to wear a "nude" lip but in the past few years I've grown increasingly fond of it.

This week's Beauty Blogger Top Ten Tuesday is focused on our top picks for Spring/Summer Nail Colours. I was surprised how tricky I found this.

Makeup Wars | Favourite Peach and Coral Lip Products

Today the Makeup Wars beauty bloggers are sharing with you some of our favourite peach and coral lip products. Breaking out these pretty shades is one of the best parts of spring! While pinks are something that you can pull off year round there is something about coral that just doesn't seem to fit with colder weather. We tend to save them (particularly the more vibrant shades) until the warmer weather hits. Many of my all time favourites were unfortunately limited edition releases, and I didn't want to tempt you with no longer
