Cailyn Cosmetics O Wow Brush




    What’s all the fuss about… fancy make-up brushes?

    If you’re someone for whom an eyeshadow palette that comes with a little sponge applicator thingie is already luxury enough, the following may be a revelation: there’s a make-up brush frenzy out there.

    It’s enough to make you revert to fingers. Yet, virtuous though frugality feels, sometimes fingers aren’t always best. They lack accuracy, especially when it comes to fiddly corners and feline flicks. One of my best beauty discoveries of recent times has been the Cailyn Cosmetics O Wow Brush (I know; luckily it’s good). A synthetic ‘brush’ that feels like a cross between a sponge and velvet, it offers the smoothest landing of foundation – bar none.

    Before I met the O Wow I was foundationphobic– I spend too much time standing outside fashion shows in harsh light that cruelly spotlights tide marks to risk it. But the O Wow is the MI5 agent of the beauty world, delivering improved skin tracelessly. It is utterly brilliant.

    Use it to blend a tiny dollop (you can always add more) of your regular foundation/BB cream/concealer with some moisturiser/ illuminator on the back of your hand, and apply for streak-free, invisible coverage.

May Newsletter


Welcome to the May newsletter where we launch a new skincare brand, NIOD, to the world, which kind of changes everything, including my skin; we take a look at some new eye products, an Italian wellbeing range that is so deeply sensual it makes my heart flip and we throw the focus once again on our hair with the introduction of a new product, feedback and a celebration. We drill down on several health concerns, including hay fever and benign prostate enlargement and at this point let me say that there are several treats throughout the newsletter, so please read carefully as we share some of the products we love with you.

Before anything, as some of you realised, the monthly Addicts Bulletin got sent out to our entire database in error; I really don’t know what to say other than I knew within a split second that something had gone very wrong, I screamed loudly and then held my head in my hands as bedlam reigned for two entire days.
