Givenchy Launches A Seriously Cool Jelly Blusher

A model's face with pink blusher and Givenchy's Blush Memoire De Forme

Here on the LOOK beauty desk, we're suckers for a gorgeous blusher – but when it's hot outside, the last thing you want to do is cake on a heavy powder. So when Givenchy's new Blush Memoire de Forme, £26, landed on our desk, we fell in love.

The jelly formula cools and soothes cheeks as you apply, while the light-as-air texture blends in easily to give skin a gorgeous healthy flush. The rose-pink shade is perfect for summer and, even though it may feel lightweight, this little pot of prettiness is guarenteed to stay put through a scorching hot day.

Want to know the best bit? The clever little gel doubles up as a lip tint too, saving you vital room in your clutch bag. Well done, Givenchy!

5 Things You Didn't Know About Max Factor

Max Factor

So, everyone knows that it’s the make-up of make-up artists, but what else do you know about Max Factor? Read on to discover what sets Max Factor apart from the rest…

Max Factor coined the word ‘make-up’.
While actresses had long described “making up” their faces before going on stage or in front of the camera, in 1920 Mr Max Factor was the first person to describe the cosmetics used as ‘make-up’.

Kissing matters to Max Factor.
When the Tru-Colour lipstick was developed in 1940, it was tested by the Kissing Machine, which used artificial kissing lips to measure how much pressure and kissing the lipstick could withstand and still remain on the lips.

Max Factor made movie history.
Completing the greatest single make-up order to date, Max Factor provided 600 gallons of body make-up to the Ben Hur film set in 1925.

Max Factor created the original “Blonde Bombshell”.
It was Mr Max Factor who lightened actress Jean Harlow’s hair - matching it with a new doll-like make-up look - to iconic effect.

It’s all about glamour for Max Factor.
Whether working with the original screen icons or developing products to be used at home, Max Factor believed that glamour can be achieved by all women – a principle that the beauty brand stands by to this day.

Eliza Doolittle's Out-Of-This-World Galactic Manicure

Eliza Doolittle rocks a space-age mani

Eliza Doolittle has been spotted rocking an amazing futuristic mani, and she’s got nail genius Sophy Robson to thank for her space-age digits.

Sophy shared this Instagram snap of Eliza peeking out from behind her fresh, fun mani, giving us all a close look at her amazing nail art. Boasting a red, white and blue mix of shades all artfully applied in the sci-fi design, we don’t fancy our chances at trying to get the look ourselves.

So instead of doing DIY nail art or wishing we had Sophy’s mega skills, we’re getting the look with galactic nail wraps by LA brand, NCLA. Whip them on, flash your fingertips, and work space-age nails, Eliza style.

Smoother Mornings Start Here

Nivea

Nothing says good morning, like waking up and jumping into a long, hot shower. Want to get your day off to an even more indulgent and smoother start? NIVEA's In-Shower Body Moisturiser will leave you feeling spa pampered without you having to step outside of your bathroom!

NIVEA's In-Shower Body Moisturiser is a genius way to lock in moisture to guarantee radiant, super-soft skin. You use it in the shower to boost the hydrating effect of all that water – simply wash, then smooth it on to wet skin, rinse, and towel dry. The skin-nourishing cocoa butter formula absorbs instantly. There's no oily residue and no need to wait for lotions to soak in. You can simply slip into your clothes and enjoy the look and feel of glowing and hydrated skin all day long. Genius!

We asked 300 Look readers to give it a go and here's what they had to say…

Fiona Will, Maryburgh: 'I love it! Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser is so easy to use. I only shower a few minutes longer than normal and I step out with wonderfully soft skin, smelling great. I have recommended it to anyone who will listen. Soft, quick and fragrant, this is a must on my shopping list from now on!'

Cheryl Pearson, South Queensferry: 'I thought the concept of an in-shower body moisturiser was very bizarre – I couldn't imagine how it would wash off, so I was initially quite sceptical that it would make any difference to my skin. But having tried it, I have to say this shower moisturiser really made a difference to my day –and I loved the scent.'

Charlotte Liddle, Newcastle upon Tyne: 'The Nivea In-Shower Body Moisturiser really surprised me – I didn't expect such great results from the very first use. My skin is now softer than it's ever been before! It actually worked better than the moisturiser I'd normally use after the shower, as the results were instant. A huge bonus was that my skin wasn't greasy or oily at all, as it can be after using some moisturisers. It just left me with baby-like skin! I would definitely recommend this product… I think it will be a hit – its genius!'

Now it's over to you to join the #smoothermornings movement with your very own wake-up treat – NIVEA In-Shower Body Moisturiser. Try it and tell us what you think!
