Sarah Chapman Instant Miracle Mask Review

When it comes to skincare, Sarah Chapman knows her stuff, but even so nothing will prepare you for her Instant Miracle Mask. With brown sea algae, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid, the rubbery face mask literally feeds your skin with all of the essential goodness it needs.

Admittedly it can be messy to mix the powder and you need to be quick on your feet with applying as the face mask sets within minutes. Try to get an even coverage all over your face and neck as much as possible, which will make it easier to peel off.

Skin underneath feels smooth and soft with a radiant, healthy glow, and pores are much smaller and less visible.

Sarah Chapman’s Instant Miracle Mask is £38 for 4 sachets from

Rating: 9/10 – it can be messy, but your skin will look and feel amazing for days after. In essence this is real skin food.

Bobbi Brown Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mascara Review

It's one of the best selling beauty brands - if not the top performer for John Lewis judging by the size of the new counter in the Oxford Street flagship store - and Bobbi Brown has countless award-winning products including the beauty editors favourite, the long wear gel liner and gorgeous the shimmer bricks. Surprisingly though none of Bobbi Brown's mascaras have taken home any prizes.

The Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mascara launched last year and does exactly what it promises: longer, glamorous lashes in seconds. With widely spaced bristles, the wand combs through lashes, separating and coating each lash without even a hint of clumping. The deep black colour rules out the need for a second coat and the formula stays put all day, so much so you will need a good eye make-up remover to take it off.

Creating a mascara that creates impressively long lashes with no clumps for less than £20 is no mean feat - Bobbi Brown we salute you. 

Bobbi Brown's Lash Glamour Extreme Lengthening Mascara is £18,  available from

Rating: 8/10 - Great mascara for adding definition and length, but those who prefer volume might not be 100% content.

Bourjois Liner Feutre Review

With a felt tip end, Bourjois’ Liner Feutre offers optimum precision for those who like a flicked corner.

The black colour does need layering to achieve a jet black finish, but the formula dries within seconds so it is quick and easy to apply. The winning feature of this eyeliner though is its staying power. If you’re someone who likes a bold block of eyeliner on your top lid, but are fed up with the smudging and printing onto your browline, then this is a liquid liner for you. Come rain or shine this eyeliner stays in place all day long.

Bourjois Liner Feutre is £6.99 and is available from

Rating: 8/10 – While it takes a couple of attempts to achieve a rich black shade, the longevity makes this liquid eyeliner one of the best available. Plus you get change from a tenner!
