I think Trinny London might really be a thing.
I was sent some gifts a while ago – last year I think. A lip thing and two eye things and I loved the click-together packaging where you snap little pots of stuff together into a handy tube, plus the option of buying empty pots for your “stack” in which to decant a favourite cream EG LANSINOH.
I never have the courage of my convictions, so I was heartened by comments left by Spikers saying “I’ve got stuff from Trinny London and it’s great.”
Anyway on my recent concealer hunt, even though that one from Il Makiage is perfectly fine I thought “fuck it” and bought the Trinny London BFF Eye Serum Concealer having taken their online Match2Me test.
It arrived today and it’s fabulous – even better, dare I say it, even than the Il Makiage thing. It’s really creamy and a very good colour and while people make a song and dance about this being an important thing over the age of 40 – like being over 40 is a disease (maybe it is?) – a creamy under-eye concealer is important at any age. It’s not like when you’re 29 you want some dry chalky thing.
Trinny London also got a great press work-out this weekend in both The Times and Sunday Times beauty columns, particularly for the new BFF De-Stress Tinted Serum, which is exactly what it sounds like it is.
I was also, alongside my paid-for eye serum, sent three very generously-sized testers and you know how we bloggers fuxxing love a freebie amirite?
And let me tell you Trinny London has its work cut out to cheer me up right now: I’m at the tail-end of a horrible cold and I’ve got a couple of PMT zits that have changed the shape of my chin. Plus I’ve got the actual PMT, which makes everything horrendous with its fire-dose of bad hormones, flatulence and bloating. I mean it’s not like I’m Gigi Hadid at the best of times but right now I look very bad.
