Hello

I'm a beauty journalist blogging about what really works from cosmetics to cosmetic surgery.

BOUTIQUE

 

BOUTIQUE

 

Nice as pie: Boutique

What is it? New range of make-up... 


What’s the USP? ...that's luxe-looking but competitively priced, developed by Sainsbury working in association with two make-up artists, Jo Saville and Sophia Price, who are now the brand's ambassadors. 

 

Hero product? Bit early to say (it hasn't quite launched yet) but the lip gloss is a cracker, lovely and smooth without being sticky or over-shiny and a bargain at £6. 

 

Cross your fingers: Boutique

Why the name? For the word's chic-and-exclusive connotations, at a guess.  

 
How new is it? Launching in September at branches of Sainsbury nationwide.   


I’d ... get in store and have a good play and see what you like best - there's a full range, from lipsticks and eye shadows to nail varnish and accessories. Ignore the shade names whose jovial wittiness gets a bit exhausting after a while ('Mum's the word', 'Cross your Fingers', 'Forty Winks') and concentrate on the textures, which are really nice.
