The girl who won the Glosscars

Meet the Bh member who made off with the much-coveted basket of bestbuys in beautyheaven. Remember, green is not a kind colour…

When beautyheaven asked members to vote in our Glosscars beauty awards by reviewing nominated products, one member’s voice sounded above the others. We recognised a kindred spirit. A true beauty fiend of the most addicted order. So we gave her the glistening basket of winners when the Glosscars were announced. Meet Kara-lee now…

The moment I realised I was a beauty addict was…

Addict? Me? No, I can quit any time I like! I’m not very convincing am I, so I think I should just ‘fess up. I do love my girly things. Every Sunday when I was a little girl, my grandma would sit and ‘set’ her hair and pluck her brows. While she was doing that she always let me rummage through her make-up box. It was like an Aladdin’s cave of different scents, talcs, creams and textures. I’d spend my Sundays knee deep in it all, exploring what I could and couldn’t use. I felt like a princess. Old habits die hard, I guess!

The beauty trend that I just don’t get is…

Ooh, don’t get me started. There is classic, then there is classic 80s! Why anyone would want to put themselves through bubble skirts and blue eyeshadow again I will never understand. Thank goodness teased hair has stayed out of fashion. Though it’s probably only a matter of time…

The best beauty tip I’ve ever heard is…

Hmm, this is tough! There’s loads of advice out there for women on all things health and beauty but what’s ‘right’ and what’s ‘wrong’ seems to change with every month. So I think the best beauty tip is to take a risk! Hair grows back. Make-up can be washed off. It never hurts to experiment and find what suits you best. After all no one knows you better than you.

The best product in the Glosscars Winners Basket was…

It would have to be Intimately Night For Her by David and Victoria Beckham. While I love to chop and change my style and make-up, somehow I’d ended up in a fragrance rut. After putting it on and swooning (with hubby doing the same!), it had me thinking about the last time I’d changed my fragrance – it’s been 12 years! I was totally shocked. Definitely time for a change! And this was perfect for it.

What’s the best thing about reviewing and reading about products in beautyheaven?

We all work really hard for our money and I know I don’t like to go and … hand over my hard earned cash without having feedback from real women, not spokespeople or adverts, telling me how great a product will be. That’s why I love beautyheaven’s reviews so much. Getting honest opinions on products so that we can make informed choices, and save ourselves a buck or two along the way, is invaluable.
