Pick of The Best
Each month we test different kinds of products for their effectiveness, staying power and all-round good or bad responses to our skin. This month, we have accumulated a selection of make up products, that we feel are truly exceptional. Read on to find out who made it on our list...

This concealer brings a dewy fresh feeling to skin and has brilliant staying power!
Benefit Real Big Steal - Mascara Booster
In 1976, sisters Jean and Jane Ford flipped a coin – heads they opened a deli, tails they opened a makeup store. It landed on tails, so they set up shop in San Francisco and launched whimsical cosmetics brand Benefit. This mascara is excellent at picking up small limp lashes and transforming them into thick, curled fluttering lashes.
FAIRY DROPS Scandal Queen Mascaras
Jet black with an ultra-glossy finish, Fairydrops’ Scandal Queen Mascaras has been called a ‘push up bra for lashes’, thanks to its phenomenal ability to lengthen, lift, curl and ‘plump up’ each individual eyelash. The innovative ‘bobble’ wand was the result of trial and error – having struggled to find a mascara that really made an impact during her frequent television appearances, Japanese celebrity Aya Yasude started customising wands – snipping away at bristles until she achieved the desired ‘wow factor’.
