Packed full of wisdom from Pretty Iconic
by Sali Hughes considers which much-hyped beauty buys are worth the buzz and who they are best suited for.
Sali Hughes uses her witty, inclusive and discerning style to look at some of the most significant products in beauty from treasured classics such as Chanel No 5, to life-changers such as Babyliss Big Hair, and the more recent releases from Charlotte Tilbury, Sunday Riley and others that are shaping the beauty industry today. Sali takes us from the evocative smell of Johnson's baby lotion through to Simple Face wipes, NARS Orgasm and beyond, looking at the formative role beauty plays in our lives.
