The Fashion Audit: Digital matching, Boho bonces and shady business

What we love, we're not sure about, we're buying and can't wait for...

We love: Matchy matchy!

The days of painting the back of your hand in tiger stripes on the hunt for the perfect foundation are no more, thanks to No7's new service. A digital reader will analyse skintone in moments before choosing the perfect shade from a revamped range of bases. Available at Boots nationwide.

We're not sure about: Boho bonces

It's the end of the festival season, which means that as well as giving your muddy wellies and tent a good hosing down, it's time to put the bohemian look to bed for another year. A good thing these "Boho Rocks" transfer headbands are non-permanent then.

We're buying: Shady business

Yes, it's September and the shops are filling up with lovely knitwear, but it seems summer hasn't quite given up the ghost. Some have been caught unawares by the late sunshine, but the new Karen Walker shades are a great way to hide that "deer in the headlights" look.

Fantastique collection, 3220. matchesfashion.com

We can't wait for: Horsing around

Burlesque may have been back for a while now, but legendary Parisian cabaret club Crazy Horse is coming to London to show us how it's done. Despite having more than 60 years' experience under its garter belt the lavish spectacle remains cutting edge.

From 18 September, tickets start at £35, forevercrazy.co.uk

We're visiting: Crystal clear

The new exhibition from the Design Museum is the hottest ticket in town for the magpies among us. In Digital Crystal, 15 artists explore the future of memory – aided by Swarovski.

Until 13 January 2013, tickets start at £5, designmuseum.org
