What we love, we're buying and we're not sure about

We love… Gold touch

Designer Prabal Gurung has teamed up with make-up maestros MAC to create a rather swanky new collection. The shiny gold packaging brings out The Audit’s inner magpie, and what lies inside is pretty special, too.
From £17.50, maccosmetics.co.uk

We’re not sure about… Face tech

Forget lotions and potions – there’s a new weapon in the war against wrinkles. The Slendertone Face device tones face muscles using electronic pulses. As scary as that sounds, it’s still a walk in the park compared to a surgeon’s scalpel.
From January £149, slendertone.com


We’re buying… Season’s greetings

Trust Harvey Nicks to solve the problem of unwanted gifts with a tongue-in-cheek range of Christmas cards that can include specific instructions for your nearest and dearest. Subtle as a brick, but effective.
£6 for a pack of six, harveynichols.com


We can’t wait for… Posh paws

The Beckhams have their fingers in many pies, and they’ll be perfectly polished thanks to the latest endeavour. The Victoria Beckham collection for Nails Inc launches online today, including shades inspired by the Japanese feel of her spring/summer collection, such as Judo Red and Bamboo White.
£25, nailsinc.com
