Aldi Concealor Pen

Aldi brought out some hits (and to be fair a few misses) this year with their Specialbuy Beauty range and we were on hand to tell you exactly what you needed to pop in your basket!


And you lot weren't finished with Benefit yet as you wanted to know all about their new (and budge-proof, hurricane-proof and million-waters-hoses-proof) liner. Opinions were divided as to whether it was easy to use but Laura's tutorial had us all practising.

final beautie awards

And the best awards in the beauty business took place in May last year with over 80,000 votes being cast as you told us what products you REALLY rate. We had four categories - hair, makeup, face and body - and in a wonderful event full of bubbles and glittered, we revealed all your winners. From Best Budget Day Moisturiser to Best Eyeshadow Brand, there were some classics and some new beauty kids on the block included in your winners.


So what do you think of this super seven? Any surprises or any article you loved that you are surprised not to see here! And here's to 2015!
