If there's one thing we know about it's nail art pens, and Nubar nail art pens are favourites of ours. They have two ends, one pen end for precision designs and one brush end for creating stripes. They make creating unique designs super easy and come in a kaleidoscope of cool colours, making unique DIY nails easy to achieve for everyone!
Beauty Shed, £5.95
Andrea Fulerton's nail tattoos are our latest lust-have! They are sold exclusively at Superdrug and come in various grunge-chic designs. Our fave of the moment are the chain tattoos! To use, you simple peel the stickers off the backing and stick to the nail, before glossing a layer of topcoat over the top. The best bit? They're only £1.99 per pack, and you get 3 sheets of stickers in each! SOLD!
If you want to give your skin an overhaul but find faffing with different vitamins a turn-off, BioCorrex could be the answer. You get 5 different capsules in one daily sachet, keeping things simple and organised, and ideal for on the go! Each of the five capsules is different and targets a specific skincare issue: anti-ageing, hydrating, healing, radiance and correcting. They're a bit on the pricey side, but we think good skincare products are an investment worth making!
Okay, we think we might have found our new go-to mascara. This beauty by MAC is a two-in-one mascara that lets you choose if you want lashes to be naturally defined, or instantly combed and loaded for full-on drama.
Easy to use dual-wiper system allows this lightweight formula to go on either way. One wiper refines the application for a clean sweep, while the other loads the lashes for greater impact - and we heart the pink and glittery purple packaging too!
£18, MAC Cosmetics
Budget bath and bodycare brand, Nspa have launched a new range of uber-fruity products which smell absolutely delish! The products are packed with natural vitamins such as Vitamin E and B5 and contain real fruit extracts. Nspa is sold exclusively at Asda and all products are £3 or two for £4 - bargain central! Our fave is the Fresh Sweet Raspberry shower and bath gel - heaven in a bottle.
Lady Gaga's debut fragrance FAME hits stores today. It has an innovative formula as the liquid itself is black, but becomes transparent when the spray touches your skin! The scent itself is deep and sensual with notes of poisonous flower Belladonna, Honey and Tiger Orchid (we're glad Gaga shelved her original idea of creating Eau de Blood and Semen...) We expected Gaga's fragrance to be an acquired taste, but this is genuinely gorgeous. Bonus points for that bottle too, which ticks the AW/12 gorthic trend box!
From £24.50, The Fragrance Shop
This mini set of cult POP Beauty essentials is perfect for last minute summer getaways! The set contains Face Magnet powder to mattify skin and absorb oil, Face Magnet primer designed to prep the skin for make-up with licorice root to minimise redness, Stain Stay for long lasting, moisture-rich lip colour and My One Liner liquid eyeliner.

We've been doing the rounds at all the British festivals and one beauty look we've spotted a lot is foil lips! These red lip foils by Lip Rock look amazing on and last longer than simply wearing lipstick! To apply, simply aply the lip adhesive, press the foil onto the lips and remove the backing to reveal an awesome metallic pout! Now the festival season is drawing to an end, we'll be wearing these on nights out instead. Perfect for ensuring our lippie stays on our lips and not on the wine glass!
Lip Rock, £6.99
Calvin Klein recently launched a fab collection of ck one cosmetics, in minimalistic yet covetable curvy packaging. We are particularly loving the clever brow prncil and gel duo - on one end is an angled pencil for precise filling and defining, and on the other is a soft-hold gel and brush to groom brows to perfection. Stylish and clever - we like!
Paul & Joe are one of our fave make up brands because not only are their products great quality, but their packaging is pretty much the loveliest thing of all time! The Parisian brand have teamed up with ASOS on a range of exclusive releases, including this gorgeous duo-tone blusher. The printed packaging is adorable as ever and we just love the embossed birds! This comes in 3 shades, including a darker pink and coral shade. Magnifique!
Blistex have just launched Moisture Max, a mega hydrating lip balm that contains soft melting moisture beads. These beads contains Shea Butter and Aloe Vera for intensive, long lasting hydration. It's going to be our handbag must-have for preventing trans-seasonal chapped lips!
Boots stores, £2.49
Dior have just launched their safari-inspired Golden Jungle make up collection, with on-trend khaki shades in abundance. We are totally in love with this palette, which is a cross between leopard print and camo print (both of which we love!) and features a combination of gold and khaki green eyeshadows and a shimmering pink lipgloss in one handy compact. But with a pricetag of £52, this one is definitely a payday treat!
We love how quick eyebrow waxing is compared to plucking, but have always been a bit scared to try it at home in case we slip and go from monobrow to minibrow! Nads have released a facial waxing wand to make eyebrow shaping a doddle for anyone. Simply apply a small amount of wax to unwanted brow hairs using the precision wand, then remove with the fabric strips provided. It's the fastest (and cheapest) solution we've found for perfect eyebrows!
We love the salty beach hair look (as perfected by Whitney Port on our latest cover) but due to our pathetic excuse for a British summer, we haven't had a chance to get the look from the actual sea! Step in Soy Renewal Beach Spray by Healthy Sexy Hair! It gives that salty texture to hair without drying it out as it's enriched with Argan oil! We love it!
Beauty Bay, £10.60
17 have just launched their Blow Out mascara - which promises to increase lash volume by up to 12 times, revealing mega lashes you never knew you had! The added benefit of this mascara is the fact it is enriched with Vitamin E and Argan oil to help condition and promote supple and healthy lashes! It's available now in Black and Black/Brown, and a new shade 'Blackest Black' launches in September!
We've been loving Stiletto Fix by Nip & Fab for a feet treat lately. It's a balm which contains cooling and soothing ingredients such as Allontin and Peppermint to take the burn out of your feet after a day (or night!) of totting about in high heels. If your favourite heels are too much of a pain, this is a wise investment before you surrender to flats...
Benefit have just launched Perk Up Artist - a fab mini palette to get you on your way to complexion perfection. The yellow cream neutralises redness, the concealer covers imperfections and the pink cream brightens the eye area. This mirrored compact also comes with a little brush for on-the-go application! Extra points awarded for the hottie on the packaging...
So our September issue has hit the newsstands and it's our Ibiza issue! Our trip to the White Isle to create the mag may seem like a distant dream now, but at least we can try and recreate the Ibiza look with some neon polishes from OPI! This set contains 5 bottles of their top quality polishes and a dry fast topcoat too. They're mini sized too, so are perfectly portable for holiday or handbag!
Nail Polish guru Leighton Denny has launched a fab range of lip products to match his famous nail polishes! Lip Dual features a lipstick on one end and a glossy lip tint on the other. You can wear both separately or layer up for maximum pout power! And the whole range have a Leighton Denny polish to match. So if you like your make up to be matchy matchy, get some Lip Dual on your shopping list!
Lip Dual, £17.50
Liz Earle Intensifying Mascara Base is like lash extensions in a tube! It's a creamy white formula which dries transparently to coat and thicken your lashes and help your mascara pack more of a punch when layered on top! The formula is enriched with Vitamin E and natural oils to condition the lashes too - bonus!
Liz Earle, £10.50
Ruby, our fashion assistant has been our beauty guinea pig recently, trialling this skin supplement, Super Collagen + C by Neocell. It contains Hydrolyzed Collagen, which helps to correct weak, broken, split, ridged and damaged nail beds. These tablets also thicken fine hair, add body and promote a clearer complexion and wrinkle reduction! But does it work? Ruby has found that they do! Areas of her hair that lacked a bit of oomph are now thicker and her problem skin is clearer. It's a thumbs up from Company!
Plucking eyebrows isn't the most pleasant part of the beauty regime but it's a pretty crucial one, and anything to make the process easier is a winner in our books. HD Brows Precision Tweezers are super slim and the the tip has been ground to a very fine point, meaning you can grab one hair at a time, minimising pain and reducing breakage. They aren't a bargain basement price, but they are professional quality and will save you time and pain in the future, so they get our vote. Grab yourself some of these bad boys and go pluck yourself!
Nouveau Beauty Group, £19.96
We all want big bouncy hair a la Chezza, but for those of us with thin locks, it's a distant dream! LA Science's patented Follicle Stimulating Shampoo is packed with nutrients to get to the root of the problem, strengthening thin, weak hair follicles and encouraging the growth phase of the hair cycle. This luxurious formula conditions as it treats the hair, so there's no need to use conditioner after! A hair saver and a time saver!
Stila have recently launched a collection of make up palettes inspired by different cities. Natch, our fave is the Lovely in London palette, full of gorgeous neutral shades for creating a daytime smokey eye and a peachy flush on the cheeks. Lovely in London is packaged in a mirrored compact and comes complete with instructions for smokey eye beginners!
Lancôme's latest mascara release Hypnôse Star has an innovative pointed brush with a mix of flat and rounded sides to ensure every lash is coated and separated. It has a super duper black glossy mineral formula and gets top marks from us for providing perfect separation, curl and staying power!
Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel is a cult hit in the beauty world. It exfoliates the skin gently using fruit enzymes rather than harsh granules, to smooth brighten and clarify your complexion. If you have sensitive skin, this is the masque is the one for you!
To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Elemis have launched pretty new packaging for Papya Enzyme Peel, and for every pack sold, Elemis will provide a 5-in-1 Pentavalent vaccine to immunise a child in Africa against 5 leading diseases. A good reason to treat yourself to this best-selling beauty buy!
Look Fantastic, £28.60
We love Eye Candy London's range of Colour Flip polishes. They're duochrome, featuring multiple shimmery shades in one bottle! They're sourced, created and manufactured in the UK and have an long-lasting and ultra glossy formula. This shade, Liquid Gold, is a dupe of Chanel's sell-out Peridot polish, and is only £8! LOVE!
Available in Sainsbury's stores, £8
Schwarzkopf are about to launch the first ever blonde shade in their Live Colour XXL Shake It Up foam dye range! Blondes will definitely have more fun using this simple dye - to use, you simply pour powder and developer lotion into the tub and shake until the non-drip foam is created, then apply the mess-free mixture and await your blonde moment... All whilst enjoying the delish strawberry scent!
Launching imminently nationwide, £5.49
Boots have just relaunched their Botanics range, with a little help from Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, who have assisted Boots in finding the most powerful and effective plant extracts to benefit our skin.
We tried their hot cloth cleansing balm at the weekend and absolutely loved it! It's a bright green and lovely smelling balm that you massage onto skin before pressing a hot cloth (provided) on to skin to draw impurities out of the skin. Our skin felt deeply cleansed and ridiculously soft after using this, and it looks like this pot will last ages too! Bonus!
We have an important announcement... We have discovered THE BEST liquid eyeliner of all time! MAC Super Slick is super easy to apply as it's wet but doesn't drag at all, creating a smooth line without the need for any cotton bud touch-ups! It dries fast and stays super black all day without smudging or budging! We are quite simply in love!
E45 have recently released Silky Radiance - a softening moisturiser with shimmery particles in to give skin that healthy glow. Shimmer moisturisers are a great way of creating the illusion of slimmer features too - when applied along the shins, they slim the leg and when applied to collarbones and shoulders, they help to define the bone structure. The great thing about this product is that it is a moisturiser first and foremost, clinically proven to provide 24 hour moisturisation, so it really cares for your skin whilst giving it a glowy boost, too!
Boots - £3.99
Exfoliating your face is really important for getting rid of dead skin cells and making a smooth base for your make up, but sometimes scrubs can be too coarse and end up irritating the skin. St Ives' range of face scrubs is arguably one of the best out there (our Web Ed says it would be one of her desert island must-haves!) and they have now released a sensitive version so everyone can get in on the scrubbing action! It contains skin soothing botanicals, micro beads and jojoba oil to remove skin impurities gently and leave skin bright and healthy!
Our hands do take a battering from day to day, whether it's carrying heavy bags of clothes for shoots or trying out the latest nail art (tough job, but someone's gotta do it!) So sometimes it's nice to give hands a bit of therapy. This scrub by Rituals is formulated to exfoliate and moisturise hands, using nourishing oils and natural ingredients. You apply the scrub to dry hands, rub together (beware if you're ticklish - this could feel quite intense!) and then rinse off. Hands feel so much softer and moisturised afterwards, not to mention smelling delish. A great treat for hardworking hands that suffer from dryness!
St Tropez Perfect Legs Spray has been our saviour in the muggy yet miserable weather we've been enduring here in London! Simply spray it onto your legs and rub in with a mitt for an instant golden hue. It can be used elsewhere on the body too - perfect if you're thinking of attempting the crop top trend but your belly needs a bronze!
We went to the launch of Famous Cosmetics' new make up range on Wednesday and their Shining Star Shimmer Brick caught our eye! It's a mirrored compact with strips of luminescent powder in pearl to bronze tones. You can use the light part to highlight the cheekbones, the dark part for a touch of bronze or mix all together for a healthy glow. We love that it's perfectly shimmery without having any big bits of glitter in like some of the more affordable shimmer powders on the market. High end quality for a budget price - we're good to glow!
Famous Cosmetics, £6.49
This new cream from Nip & Fab targets problem upper arms and has just launched on Boots.com after attracting a hefty waiting list! It promises to tone and firm the upper arms and improve the skin texture witha little help from the blue lotus flower and cactus extract it contains. Our web girl Gem has been testing this out on just one arm to see whether it works or not, and after just a couple of days the skin is definitely smoother and more evenly toned than the skin on the untreated arm! Time to even up!
This is the latest mascara offering from No7 that promises to give us perfectly separated and voluminous lashes. It's the current office sensation, as it has a unique 'star' brush with differently lengthed combs, which separate lashes perfectly for clump-free fanned out lashes! We love how thin the brush is because it minimises accidentally getting it all over your eyelid as can happen with fatter brushes. We've even applied this on the train with no accidents!
Yesterday, Decléor launched a brand new eye make up remover with a twist. This bi-phase beauty not only combines when shaken to blitz all eye make up, no matter how heavy, but also contains ingredients to nourish eyelashes and protect the eye area! The skin around the eyes is SO delicate and is the first place that signs of ageing begin to show in your twenties if you pull the skin around too much when removing make up. Luckily, this product contains vitamins A, B, D and E, which have a variety of anti-oxidant and moisturising properties, so what was once the most damaging part of our beauty routine has now become a pampering sesh for our peepers!
Benefit have just launched a range of six ultra plush lipglosses to match their boxed bronzers and blushers and we are smitten! There's something for everyone here, from nudes to hot pinks, and each gloss is super moisturising and not sticky feeling. The glosses are packaged in squeezy tubes with custom designed tips for easy and precise application. We just love the idea that we can go matchy matchy with our cheeks and lips now!
Our nail art addiction is raging out of control and this awesome set from Nailene really isn't helping matters! Nailene's Artist Expressions comes with an iridescent pinky-purple glitter topcoat, a silver sparkly striper brush and a tube of glitter to add some major sparkle to your nails. The idea is that you can use these over any base colour to create mix 'n' match designs. The three products create endless arty options and we are officially hooked!
This moisturiser by Pretty Hands has taken the office by storm lately! We're loving how moisturising it is on our hands and nails without feeling greasy or sticky. It's fragrance free, so it's fab for sensitive souls on the team and we love how much product you get for your money without the tube being too big for the handbag!
Face and Body Masque experts, Montagne Jeunesse have launched a brand new product range today - Clay Spas. They are bamboo fabric masques infused with nourishing clays which you place onto your cleansed face for a mess-free deep clean! They are made with 99% natural ingredients so if you have sensitive skin or just want a chemical-free cleanse - these are perfect. Better yet, they're only £1.49!
Montagne Jeunesse, £1.49
One of the key beauty looks we're spotting in Ibiza right now is bright lippie. Everyone wears their sunnies all the time here, so a bold lip is one of the only make up statements you can make! The best bright lipstick we have found recently is MAC's Dear Diary - a Pro Longwear Lipcreme designed by Beth Ditto. It's a gorgeous fluorescent pink shade with a slightly matte finish. It doesn't feather and has a moisturising feel to it. It really transforms your look and works amazingly on both pale and tanned skin tones for a colour pop! We're hooked!
It's easy to be sceptical about celeb fragrances, but Rihanna's latest perfume release 'Rebelle' has pleasantly surprised us! When we first tried it, it stayed on all day and all night - something a lot of our high end perfumes fail to do!
This musky chypre fragrance has notes of fruit, ginger and vanilla with a base of patchouli and amber, giving it a sensuous scent and serious staying power! Definitely one to wear if you want the 'walk-by' effect we all crave at Company (where everyone you walk past can smell your fragrance!) - no point splashing out on a scent if nobody can smell it!
£28.99 for 50ml, Superdrug
Seeing as most of Team Company are sunning themselves working hard on our September issue in Ibiza, extra additions to the beauty bag are necessary! Decléor Aroma Sun Expert is a face cream with SPF30 and anti-wrinkle properties too, to protect against the harmful effects of UV rays. We are huge advocates of staying safe in the sun, so we love a product that will protect us in the short term and also prevent wrinkles in the long term!
Look Fantastic, £23.25
Today, we're loving the Oprah-approved Kai Body Buffer Sponge, which foams when wet to release a bubbly blend of exotic perfumes and natural essences, including palm, coconut and olive oil to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturise your skin. We think these are ideal for holiday packing as it saves having to pack bottles of shower gel! Now there's some practical pampering!
One of the trickiest beauty buys out there is finding an eye make up remover that actually works. The eye area is seriously delicate, so it's important to find a product that does the hard work for you to prevent you rubbing at the skin too much. Clinique Take The Day Off is a two-way formula that you shake up to activate, and it just melts make up away! It can be used on lids, lashes and lips, and is one of the only products we've found that removes every trace of our mascara (and we do like to layer it up!) It's a make up bag must-have!
It's not often we can say we're excited about soap, but these cool tinned soaps from The Scottish Fine Soap Company have pleasantly surprised us! The tins are available in different designs from pop art to vintage floral and the soaps and scrubs are fab quality too - they are triple-milled and made from ethically sourced skin-loving ingredients. The tins are multipurpose, too - we think they would make super storage additions to our dressing table for hair grips and such! Not bad for under a fiver!
Scottish Fine Soaps, £4.95
Flawless skin is probably the quest of every girl out there, including us! This set from bareMinerals is the answer to our prayers. The foundation powder is SPF 15 and creates a luminous finish that won't clump or cake. Because it is made with minerals, it doesn't irritate the skin - bareMinerals even say it's so pure you can sleep in it! The mineral veil is a finishing powder that perfects skin and gives it a luminous soft focus look! This set, exclusive to QVC, comes with a pouch, mirror and high quality powder brush too so it's ready to bung in your handbag and use on the go!
These lash curlers by Shu Uemura have achieved icon status in the beauty world, and it's totally justified. They are an amazing piece of beauty engineering, with patented hinges designed to deliver just the right amount of pressure, and specially shaped silicone pads to get the perfectly angled curl! For fail-safe curled eyelashes, these babies are a must-have investment for your make up bag!
House of Fraser, £20
If you're in need of a bit of bath-time luxury, this pampering bath soak by Mandara Spa is the remedy. It has a gorgeous grapefruit and lemon scent to revitalise you you, whilst aloe vera moisturises your skin as you soak. The packaging oozes decadence too, with its turquoise glass jar and gold lid. We're loving it for a rainy day pick-me-up!
This gradual tanner is perfect for giving us the summery glow that we clearly won't be getting naturally at the moment seeing as we're welly shopping when we should be buying bikinis! It's made by Simple, who are known for their kind-to-skin products. As a result, this cream nourishes the skin with Vitamin's B5 and E without irritation as there's no perfume, colour or harsh chemicals in. An added bonus is that it doesn't have that tell-tale tanning smell! Tantastic!
MeMeMe have just launched this fab multi-tasking 'Boho Balm' - a pretty tin containing two creamy shades that can be used on lips and cheeks! The formula is really pigmented and feels moisturising too (nothing worse than the 'midday crust'!) There are two different shades on offer, Pink Rouge (pictured) and Coral Taupe. We noticed that superstar beauty blogger Gem's Maquillage uses hers as a base for her cream blushers to help them last longer too - clever!
Guerlain have just launched a collaboration with Emilio Pucci, featuring nail polishes, eyeshadows lip glosses in pink and blue shades (yes, blue lip gloss!) The stand out product of the collection is this beautiful pot of Meteorites Pearls - iridescent balls of pink, bronze, blue and white which, when swirled together, illuminate and correct skin tone and leave a gorgeous healthy glow. It's just as well we've just been paid, as it isn't exactly cheap, but the way we see it, the pearls will last ages and that gorge packaging doubles up as a mini piece of art! A wise investment, we say!
We've tried lip tattoos (without much success, if we're being honest!) but these lip foils are much easier to apply and are set to be the hot new lip trend for summer! You simply apply the special glue all over the lips, press the metallic transfer sheet onto your lips until they're completely covered and then peel the backing off to reveal a perfectly metallic pout!
If there's one thing that makes early mornings a bit more bearable, it's getting the chance to pamper ourselves in the shower! We picked up this Radox Spa Radiant Shower Scrub on offer in Asda recently and its heavenly fruity aroma and gentle scrubbing particles are the perfect wake up call. The oils in the formula leave our skin super silky and not raw like some harsher scrubs on the market. Even if it takes us a coffee or two to look our radiant selves some mornings, at least our skin can get a head start!
We adore Soap & Glory's fun foray into the beauty world, and this little lip balm pot is our current handbag staple from their range. Their balms come in three flavours, including tinted options.
Our pick is the Coconut flavoured one, which smells like holiday and tastes like a cocktail. It contains moisturising mango butter, apricot butter for weather protection and lingonberry oil to boost the barrier repair and prevent water loss. And, as with all Soap & Glory products, that cute retro packaging design is the icing on the cake!
Our fair-skinned Web Assistant Gem got into a spot of bother in the recent sunshine here in London by getting sunburnt despite dosing up on sun cream. The only part of her bod that was spared the lobster makeover was her face, which she'd put No7's BB Cream on earlier that day. Besides providing a long-lasting medium foundation coverage, this multi-tasking BB Cream has 5-star UVA and UVB protection and SPF15, quite literally sparing Gem a red face at work this week! Definitely a product to stock up on for the summer!
Viva La Juicy is one of those scents that just screams SUMMER, with its notes of mandarin, jasmine and vanilla. It's one of our favourites, but its elaborate bottle doesn't make it all that handbag friendly.
Luckily, Juicy Couture have answered our prayers with this new travel bottle of the fragrance, which is far more portable without sacrificing on personality (It wouldn't be Juicy without the cute bow and charm!) Perfect for festivals, holidays and everyday handbag life!
£39.50, John Lewis
This blingtastic nail polish has to be seen to be believed! It's from Nails Inc's new Nail Jewellery collection and is filled with silver glitter discs and chunky hand-cut fragments of glitter too (check out the effect on the Nails Inc site!) Perfect for giving a plain manicure a bit of sparkle!
The Nail Jewellery range comes in blue, purple and green too so there's a bit of glittery goodness to suit all tastes (and outfits!)
£11, Nails Inc
We're busy girls at Company, and busy hands can occasionally mean broken nails! We love this handy little box of mini nail files by Tweezerman, who have partnered up with Gwen Stefani to launch a collection of beauty tools for her fun fashion brand, Harajuku Lovers. There's 12 little files in the box so enough to have one in every handbag! Perfect for filing on the go!
When it comes to fragrance, this time of year is all about fresh, springy scents. Gucci Flora is one of the best spring scents we've sniffed as its floral scent is light enough for daily wear but has an aquatic twist to it, giving it staying power and enough depth to be suitable for night time too. If you need a bit of flower power from a fragrance, Gucci Flora Eau Fraiche is the one to pick!
£46 for 50ml, Gucci
M&S have always been our go-to for undies but lately their cosmetics range has been catching our eye in a big way too. Not only is the formula great quality, but the packaging is uber covetable too. Our current fave products are the bronzers, which come in leopard and floral packaging and two shades depending on how sunkissed you want to look!
Some eyelash curles look like instruments of torture and put us off using them entirely, but these cute Japonesque pocket lash curlers are the exception to the rule. These are pink, pocket-sized and easy to use. They have an easel that pops down at the back which curls the lashes when squeezed, and the open fram design doesn't pinch your outer lashes like the traditional scissor-esque curlers. Pretty AND practical - we like!
HQ Hair, £10
Our lippie always looks amazing at the beginning of the night but after a while (and a few drinks...) things can wear off a bit. i-Pout by New Cid Cosmetics not only has a mirror on the side of the lid, but has a button at the base of the lipstick so it lights up, so you can touch up your lippie quickly and easily wherever you are! Genius! The formula is enriched with vitamin E so feels really moisturising. We're currently loving the Belle shade - a dark rosy pink shade with a silky finish!
New Cid Cosmetics, £15
Finally, someone has recognised one of our pet peeves with hand sanitisers - they make our hands feel SO dry! The clever people at Vaseline have solved our problem by creating a handcream and anti-bac double whammy! It contains 5 essential moisturisers, leaving hands soft and germs stopped. It's our new handbag staple!
You may think there isn't much danger of getting sun damage at the moment in the UK what with this rubbish excuse for May weather, but harmful UV rays actually effect us all year round.
We've started using this one-stop-shop face cream by Ultrasun, which protects against UVA and UVB rays and has an anti-ageing formula to keep our skin safe, smooth and moisturised.
Salon nail polish mega-brand Essie have just launched a diffusion range of their polishes on the high street. The polishes have been created with a new formula to help you get fast-drying salon talons at home - and they are priced lower than their salon counterparts at only £7.99! What's more, there's a whopping 70 shades to choose from, making Essie a yessie for any nail art fan!
We all love to look on-trend but putting our own unique spin on things is important to us at Company. This is why we have been loving Miners Mood Gloss lately - it has colour changing technology which reacts with your individual ph-level creating a gloss shade that is completely unique to you! It smells gorge and feels really moisturising on our lips, unlike some sticky glosses. The best bit? This beauty bargain can be yours for £2.49!
When it comes to hairspray, we want controlled hair not crispy hair! Moroccanoils Luminous Hairspray is infused with argan oil, giving hair long-lasting and flexible hold and a gorgeous shine. Dont let the word oil mislead you with this stuff it is super lightweight so it doesnt weight hair down at all. It also brushes out easily if you want to switch styles and has a scrummy summery scent to boot!
Today we are experiencing major lust over Mac's brand new colour collection, 'Hey Sailor', which as you might've guessed has a nautical theme!
The range features Small Eye Shadows, Lipsticks, Lipglass, Powder Blushes, Pigments, Powerpoint Eye Pencils, Pro Longwear Lip Pencils, Nail Lacquers and Zoom Waterfast Lash - all in adorable striped packaging. Our ultimate fave is the highlighting powder, with sailor stripes of pink and purple set into the powder itself!
Prices start at £9.00, MAC
Nail art is one of our favourite beauty hobbies here at Company, but removing polish to make way for a new look can be a time-consuming affair - especially when glitter is involved!
Luckily, Bourjois have saved the day with this pretty pink bottle of magic. Instead of messing about with cotton wool, you simply dip your finger in the pot and twist for lightning fast removal. What's more, it has a gorgeous fruity scent! Clean and fruity fingernails minus the faff - we smell a new beauty lust-have!
Clean & Clear Morning Energy Skin Brightening Daily Facial Wash
With the weather going all hot and cold on us and quite alot of late nights, our skin has been suffering. Breakouts on our foreheads and chins are NOT a chic look. Luckily, just in time, we discovered the new MORNING BURST® Skin Brightening Cleanser, which is formulated with a unique blend of caffeine, lemon and papaya and cleanses to help brighten the appearance of your skin while releasing a gorge fruity fragrance that awakens your senses. The first time you use it, your skin feels super-clean and appears instantly refreshed - and after a week of using it every day, the breakouts are gone and our skin is back to it's best.

£1.49 for 50, Superdrug.com
Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores
When environmental pollutants, dirt and debris get under your skin, its waste-filtering system gets jammed, pores get clogged, skin looks dull. We used this deep cleaning mask over the weekend and now our skin looks and feels radiant so we had to recommend it to you! The key ingredient in this mask, activated Charcoal, acts like a magnet to draw out pore-cloggers, White China Clay absorbs environmental pollutants, Lecithin dissolves impurities. We recommend you splash out on this mask - your skin will thank you for it...

£5.99, Burt's Bees
When Benefit first released BeneTint, it became an instant cult classic - but since we discovered their newer shade, Cha Cha Tint, we haven't looked back!
This mango-tinted stain beautifully blushes lips & cheeks with a tropical sunset hue. Smooch-proof & smudge-proof, this sheer stain will have you looking deliciously sun-kissed for hours. We love!
Salon at Home Strength & Repair
Research released by Charles Worthington, who this year celebrates 25 years since his first salon opened, has revealed that today 2nd February is the date that were most in need of some hair TLC; with the brand reporting a massive 35% rise in the amount of hair treatments sold on this day in comparison to any other in the year! Knowing this, we thought it was only right to get in on the act and the combination of harsh winter weather and getting paid (yay!) means we thought we'd treat ourselves to this deep nourishing home hair treatment.
Salon at Home Strength & Repair is a treatment kit that restores dry, damaged and fragile hair to leave it looking healthy and intensely nourished is exclusively available nationwide, at Boots.
We know, we know, we're not supposed to apply our foundation with our fingers but sometimes time is of the essence! However, since we discovered the Urbanista range of brushes and grooming products, we're converted. Not only do we love the packaging and design of the range (who doesn't want a metallic pink foundation brush?), but they are also great quality and a bargain price. We promise we'll never use our fingers to apply our base again!

Rimmel Lycra Pro Nail Polish
What we love most about this long lasting nail polish is it's 'revolutionary' wide, flat brush design engineered to adapt to all nail shapes and provide fast application with easy control - a must if you're not quite a manicurist! For superior shine and wear. Rimmel Lycra Pro Nail Polish has a Lycra formula enriched with UV protection to deliver super-durable, chip-resistant and fade-proof colour for up to 10 days - it really is one of the most long lasting nail polishes we've tried.

Gloss Prodige Lip Gloss
When thiese beautiful lip glosses fell into our hands, we were sold immediately - they are a new generation of lip gloss, combining incredible shine, intense colour and lasting hold. Its highly smoothing, gel-like texture is non-sticky (which we love), and it shapes lips, coating them in a veil of softness and comfort. There are eight shades, each with a delicious flavour with notes of blackcurrant and liquoric - our fave colour though is the versatile 02 Nude.
