In short, yes. Now sit back and relax while I form my opinion on this product in this very blog post.

We’ve established that I’m obsessed with hair. No tools in this universe are ever enough for me. Like lipstick addicts who find every shade of red to be different, I find every tool delivers a different result. And like all lipstick lovers, I love all my hair curlers and tongs equally. I mean my desert island pick would have to be Nicky Clark’s diamond shine styling wand but there’s literally no hair tool in my vanity that goes unused.

I’m really not an impulse buyer and like to talk myself out of every Charlotte Tilbury purchase and Lisa Eldridge recommendations but when I saw this appear in my IG explore, it’s all I could think about for days. I couldn’t find very many reviews online as it’s fairly new so I thought I’ll just try it for myself. After being disappointed by constant out of stock messages on Dysons website, there came a magical day when there was availability. I parted with £400 and days later here we are.

The Dyson Airwrap 'Smooth +Control' version I bought comes with a couple of attachments including a hairdryer, 30mm and 40mm barrels and a firm smoothing brush. Although this makes a one-off investment, Dyson should have offered an option to purchase the curling barrels separately as that’s what I was after in particular. I was impressed with the initial look and feel of the case and contents. There’s no skipping on quality at all and it all looks and feels quite opulent. First thing that took me by surprise was how loud it was! It’s just as loud as the cordless Dyson hoover which instantly removes it from my list of items to use when the hubby is asleep.

I started playing with the hairdryer first and it takes hair from soaking to silky in less than 60 seconds. Perfect if like me you decide to wash your hair 30 minutes before you leave on your daily commute! For someone who air dries hair normally, this is impressive and a good enough reason to convert. It felt light in the hands and there was less frizz than the usual dryer.

Next up, I tried the heated brush straightener attachment, which I really need a proper name for. Now because I have coloured hair which has been exposed to chemicals, it doesn’t leave my hair poker straight like shown in Dyson's promo videos but tame enough from the top and more put together at the ends - enough for an off-duty kinda day. You can switch the heat on and off with all attachments which is quite handy. Use the heat to style hair and the cool air to set it. I don’t think I’ll be using this attachment when I use the curler as I would want to curl my hair damp.

Coming on to the last but much-awaited attachment, the reason why this product is called Air Wrap - the curler. I was actually quite pleased this came with two barrel sizes. I expect choices when I pay this much money :) The 30mm barrel is great for a tighter curl that lasts longer and particularly for around the crown area and smaller sections. The 40mm barrel is perfect for bigger, more Farrah Fawcett kind of curls. Using this attachment properly is a learning curve and it honestly doesn't cut down on the time it takes to style your hair. It was quite weird for me to get used to the fact that I don't have to wrap my hair around the barrel and twist etc as it does it all for you!

5 tries later, I have almost perfected how to use it properly. I still need to give it just as long as a blowdry would take in a salon, i.e 20-30 minutes for results that last all day long. If you do this in a hurry, i.e. less than 15 minutes, the results will look amazing for a couple of hours and the curls will start to drop. Just think of it like a salon blowdry, you sit there patiently don't you? Well, give this time and you can replicate a salon blowdry with chic, effortless and modern curls which are soft and bouncy. It will actually make you question how 'artificial' curling tong results look like. Also, the immense volume this gives without using much product is insane. You may need to tame the frizz around the crown area a little when using this.

And now, to the ultimate question of whether the curls last. I mean there must have been like a trillion google searches for this. Heck, that's the first thing I googled before buying this. No, they don't last as long as your traditional curling tong. There, I said it. I think it's because the heat used here is comparatively less and secondly because most of us will not use it on damp hair as advised or leave enough time to use it correctly. When I use this quickly in under 15 minutes, the results are instantly amazing but open up in a soft, wispy curl later in the day. Having said that, I don't use any hairspray to set it which I think would help with longevity. More importantly, it doesn't compromise on the volume in the crown area and how well it holds the ends, it's the middle part of the hair which looses the curl.

Do I regret buying the Dyson Airwrap? No. It's luxurious, futuristic, adds variety to my styling routine, doesn't give me an unnecessary arm workout and lets me achieve a voluminous, salon blow-dry at home.

To all those people online saying this is the price of their two car instalments? I don't have a car, am quite happy with my TFL/Uber arrangement and would rather spend on salon-like curls, thank you.

Do Dyson need to improve it. Yes. Think of this as Apple's second iPhone and a few years later, how brilliant iPhone 5 was. This is a state-of-the-art product that Dyson need to bring out more versions of that straighten out all the kinks and create a cult following.

A friend of my sisters has really great skin and whenever we meet occasionally, she comprehensively names her latest beauty buys; I instantly google and bookmark them and buy them after a night of serious contemplation. Of course I've seen these metallic drops appear on my Instagram feed since over a year and people proudly showing off their foiled faces with this slathered all over their skin but I was only going to be sold when I actually saw someone wearing it. Someone whose make-up choices closely resemble mine and as this friend is pretty au naturale when it comes to her beauty regime, I thought I needed to give this overhyped product a whirl.

This comes in 4 shades, Original, Shine, Glow and Blush and I got myself 'Original'. It's a beautiful champagne shade that pretty neutral and suits all skin tones. If I had to repurchase, I think I'd give 'Glow' or 'Blush' a try as they're both a little pink-toned and I always need some pink to counteract my naturally yellow undertones. Regardless, this product is the bomb and its forte is its inability to tone down. It's bold and unapologetic nature is what sets it apart from its 129472 competitors. It's not going to meld in subtly, it's not going to give you that 'glow from within'. The end result screams and shouts to be noticed and honestly, I'm impressed.

Being someone who's obsessed with blending out products and making sure they're not obviously seen by the naked eye, I sometimes need a product that goes all out and pays tribute to why we actually wear make-up, to express ourselves. Not in a demure kinda way but in a fearless, vivid manner. You've all seen how this applies and looks on a trillion faces on Instagram so I'll just tell you how I personally like to wear it. It's at its best when applied underneath foundation and post-moisturiser. Yes, I'm seriously asking you to foil your face with it and trust that once your foundation and the rest of make-up is on, it will leave you well pleased.

I got mine from Cult Beauty



After MAC Face & Body Foundation (10 bottles down and still going strong), this is the second best purchase I've made from MAC till date. I remember getting it as an impulse buy when I was on a 'make my face look glowy like those Instagrammers' kind of spree. Similar products that I now own are the NIOD Photography Fluid and the Iconic London Illuminator Drops (review for both coming soon!) but hands down, Strobe Cream tops the list for me. 

MAC now does Strobe Cream in a variety of shades, Goldlite, Silverlite, Redlite, Peachlite - you name it. I chose Pinklite. Firstly, because who doesn't love pink? Secondly, because I thought it would be the perfect shade to counteract all the yellow and green tones on my face. 

When I bought it, I really wasn't sure how I was going to use it. I took some inspiration from Farah Dhukai and Thuy Le on IG and used it after my moisturiser and below my foundation and it was pure heaven! My skin had never looked that good before. I may be a little late to the Strobe Cream bandwagon but if you've ever used this product before, you'll agree with what I mean by using it for the very first time. It instantly makes skin look supple and super hydrated like you've spent weeks doing a juice cleanse, religiously going for a run and occasionally indulging in spa treatments. 

Realistically, who has time for all that? Just slap this on when you want to feel good about your skin. Of course the effect is just amplified if you follow it with a foundation and the rest of your usual make up routine. It acts like a lovely primer and seeps through all the make-up to give this radiant, glossy filter that just melts all the product in place harmoniously. Having said that, if you have combination skin like me, don't be afraid to use this. It's not going to disrupt your make-up or add extra oil to the skin if you simply skip using it on the nose and overall only use a pea-sized amount. 

Since I bought it, there hasn't been a single day I haven't reached for this. It kind of gets addictive as it's a skincare-makeup hybrid kind of a product. You don't feel guilty using it on your off-duty days. Sometimes I use it twice while doing my make-up, dabbing just a tad on the cheekbones and the bridge of the nose. 

On my radar now is to try the Strobe Cream in Goldlite (and the ENTIRE Farsali range). A tiny voice in my head says this should be a staple for the winter months.

Hi ya'll!

I know it's been a while. Life took over, soz. But I am happy to report I missed this and I'm back :)

I like talking about my hair and I believe you guys like hearing about it too so here we go. I had like every possible curling tong size made in my collection, you know those 19mm's and those 32mm's for all you geeks out there. Those clipless kinds and those conical kinds. Those that leave your hair with a 'diamond' finish and those that heat up to a borderline dangerous temperature. After hopelessly obsessing over Sarah Angius's IG, I finally found a need for this particular tong in my life. Now I'm not sure what she uses to achieve that soft looking set of corkscrew curls but what most people suggested were brands available outside of UK or over £200 which I wasn't willing to fork out.

After digging a little, I found this gem and you've got to have it in your life. Yes, the curls are difficult to pull off, especially if you have a chubby, square face like mine but what the heck? Just pair it with a crop top and jeans and voila, you'll look uber chic! It's seriously so much fun to play with these curls and just get all those stares because they surely don't look natural on me, hah. Okay so back to the tong itself, it's called 'Lee Stafford Original Chopstick Styler' and you can get it at Argos, Superdrug, Beauty Bay, Debenhams and 25,000 other places. Honestly, the first time I unboxed it, it looked so flimsy and hopeless but funnily it's a winner in disguise. The look requires effort and will take you around 45 minutes and more regardless of your hair length. But expect the curls to last you for days and it works brilliantly for top knots, top knots half down and with a smoking hot balayage.

You've got to love these handy little palettes that PUR have added to their line. Now this is where the phrase 'good things come in small packages' fits aptly. The palettes are as thin in width as a digestive and just as a light as a biscuit when it comes to their weight. I think this is a plus and my fellow heavy handbag carriers will agree. When you already have a curler, full-sized skincare, a kettlebell and a sink stashed into your handbag, the last thing you need is bulky palettes rattling around in there. Hands up for the number of times you've smashed a brand new blusher or damaged an eyeshadow palette when carrying it in your handbag? I know a little bit of alcohol and some YouTube DIY-ery can solve everything but refurbished make-up is never the same. That's where these ingenious babies come in.

Each pro palette comes with two and you can choose if you want a 'sculpt and glow' or 'lips and eyes' combo. The quality of the products in the palette is gorgeous, just like PUR's full sized products and they haven't cut corners because it's a palette. My favourite is the 'Night Fantasy' palette because it has some amazing deep, jewel toned shades that compliment my skintone very easily. The lip colours are nice and opaque and the shadows are perfect to compliment any evening wear. I can see this being perfect for desk to dancefloor transitions, restricted luggage holidays and just generally to throw in your bag for topping your make-up on the go.

I am especially amazed with the 'Sculpt and glow' palette. I mean there's nothing on the market at present where you get three bronzers and three highlighters in such a dinky little compact. I've even used my fingers to use the highlighers and because they are so nice and creamy, it glides on like a dream! I'd usually throw in a mini angled brush to use with the contours. Overall, if you're looking for travel-friendly makeup that doesn't shatter and can permanently stay in your handbag - this is some good quality stuff right here. PUR have some lovely swatches for these on their website, have a look at them HERE

There are only a few brands that occupy more than 30%  real estate in my makeup storage and Lord & Berry is one of them. Be it their foolproof mascaras or iconic lip colours, it's a luxurious brand with humble packaging. They are celebrating 20 years of their existence this year and have launched a Birthday Beauty Kit to mark the milestone. It includes 4 of their best Eyeshadows shadows and a Lip Crayon. Unlike most brands, the quirky company has decided not to stay safe to celebrate their anniversary and to include a mix of their brightest, wackiest eye shades in the kit. I absolutely adore the perky yellow, retro-esque aqua, pale lavender and powder pink. At first glance, I thought there is no way I could rock these shades like other Instagrammer's out there but the quality of these is just so smooth and velvety, with the right amount of pigmentation; that I'm happy to report they are perfectly wearable. Of course, I'd recommend completing the look with a lick of graphic liner and some generous coatings of mascara, preferably glitter liner and coloured mascara if you're feeling brave. I'll keep these handy on my dresser for a quick pick-me-come when the winter blues hit us soon. Also, wouldn't this make a special Christmas present for someone who likes the brand or their pastels? 

The Lip Crayon that comes in the kit has rekindled my love for peachy lip colours. The gorgeously glossy finish and the lush consistency aside, the shade is this retro, pastel peach with neutral undertones to it - making it compliment most skin tones. The colour appears a little in your face when you hit straight from the bullet but once you pat it in gently, it disseminates flawlessly with a lovely hint of colour and even coverage. Two thumbs up!

Available HERE for £45.
