Red Square have gone Digital

Hiya Poutlings <33

RED SQUARE

Red Square – famously part of the Edgars group has finally launched an online store where you can get some of your favourite beauty and perfume brands online! They have also stated that they will offer a “free” sampling programme, simply put that when you order online you can choose three sample items to try, at no additional cost. It sounds very Rubybox-esque but it sounds good to me.

Red Square have also taken into account that we, beauty bloggers as a whole are quite loud and proud about our purchases and that we want to share our product experience and knowledge with people on the web, be it via social media, blogging or review sites, and have catered for this on their website providing the opportunity for the consumers to post comments, make recommendations or even give advice about the products on offer in order to strive for consumers to make more informed choices….

The goodies you buy from Red Square can also be gift wrapped with a personalised message on the card…. this sounds like it could be an absolute save for last minute birthday or anniversary presents for the men out there 😉 Look out for perfume-presents, ladies!

Orders over R350 have free delivery, any order under that amount would be subject to an additional R45 on your purchase price. Payments can be made via credit card, or any Edgars or Jet account. HELLO 6 MONTHS INTEREST FREE CREDIT.

I’m really loving the fact that they have finally launched in the correct direction, local South African online stores will most definitely soar over the next few years but I am suprised that they did not think to do this previously…. The website on a whole, is a bit boring for a company with such an established brand however it is still early days and they may actually liven it up a bit.

It however amazing that we can now shop these amazing brands online without having to pay for parking. The brands on offer include (the links are to our previous articles on the brand/person): Antonio Banderas, Avril Lavigne, Azzaro, Beautique, Britney Spears, Burberry, Bvlgari, Cacharel, Calvin Klein, Carolina Herrera, Chloe, Christina Aguilera, CK One Color, Clarins, Davidoff, Diesel, Dolce & Gabana, Dunhill, Elie Saab, Elizabeth Arden, Elizabeth Taylor, Escada, Estee Lauder, Ferrari, Filorga, Giorgio Armani, Gosh, Gucci, Hugo Boss, I Love…, Imedeen, Issey Miyake, Jean Paul Gaultier, Jennifer Lopez, Jimmy Choo, Joop!, Justin Bieber, Kim Kardashian, L’Oreal Paris, Lacoste, Lancome, Lanvin, Madonna, Marc Jacobs, Montblanc, Nails Inc., Narciso Rodriguez, Nine West, Paco Rabanne, Placecol, Puma, Quorum, Ralph Lauren, Revlon, Rihanna, Roberto Cavalli, Shakira, Swarovski, Taylor Swift, Ted Lapidus, Thierry Mugler, Trind, Usher, Valentino, Van Cleef & Arpels, Versace, Viktor & Rolf and last but not least Yves Saint Laurent.

I’ll be sure to let you know about any of my purchase experiences from Red Square and how the service is versus the service in the actual shops! Last time I visited Johannesburg, I had superb service at the Sandton City store!

Are you going to check out Red Square online?

Be sure to let me know your experiences, if they are before mine!

Krapdashians White-Wash Fakery in New Christmas Card!

Hiya Poutlings

As you know, we are not fans of the Kardashians, Krapdashians. So please set your eyes to roll while reading this post. It’s the fakest, fakery of fake celebrities – The Krapdashians – in their all white and silver 2012 holiday photo card.

kardashian kristmas

This year, the Krapdashians went all out trying to really bring the fake, looking like they actually like one another and they are content people.

The following may or may not need to be brought to your attention:

– Kris Jenner is toasting her forthcoming freedom from Bruce, the spin-off show chronicling the divorce, KRIS TAKES BRUCE TO JUDGE JUDY and her new show entitled, Kris takes Adderall.

– Khloe, Lamar and Kendall (only two of thses people appear to have real jobs) were photoshopped in due to work commitments and seem the most actually happy out of the bunch as a result.

– The tree people most likely to jump ship, Bruce, Scott and Lamar have been corralled into the middle in case they try escape with Mason, while Kourtney is distracted offering baby Penelope Scotland to the alter of fame.

-Rob seems utterly delighted with himself and his sock empire, while his on screen buddy has opted to go NAKED about the ankles.

-Kim hasn’t be able to convince her stylist boyfriend Kanye to particiapte so instead brings her cat as a date. The ironically named, Mercy has since left this planet. Where is Kanye, is there trouble in K-paradise?

UK High Street Invasion : Krap-Tashian Kollection

Hiya Poutlings

Save the date: Thursday, 8th of November the krap-tackular fashion offerings of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney are going to Dorothy Perkins in the UK.

Apparently, it took the the three sisters and their pimp momager Kris Jenner a long time to find a retailer outside the US that was a good fit for their “Kardashian Kollection” brand.

So, as the UK-based budget brand (and sister of Topshop) continues to go global, they’re using the Krapdashians to make their name in the US and cash in on the public, like the Krapdashians do with the public obsessesion of reality TV stars.

In one months time Brit shoppers will be able to shop for sheer, tight, animal print krap in-store as well as international shoppers online in the USA, France, Germany, UK and Ireland.

Here’s a few examples of the current “klassy” offerings at the US department store, Sears which our British readers will be seeing the like of when you drop your kiddies off at school discos this Khristmas…

Dorothy Perkins, for the record, we are not amused. Go to the front of the class and face the wall until the kollection krashes and you’ve learned your lesson.

It’s a puty the stuff won’t be avaible by Halloween, that’s an easy-access Halloween costume idea right out the window.

LFW: saying “Fabulous” In a British Accent

Hiya Poutlings

Hope you’re all doing faaaabulous!! Anyway, anyone been keeping up with London Fashion week? Well, I have, but very briefly.

Who are the front row fame ho’s at this Fashion Week? Well, its certainly not lived up to the celebrity drenched hub that is NYC.

Even New York this year wasn’t up to it’s usual star-spotting standard. This year was just dull in having couples who add up to one mega star between the two of them, I mean Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas or even Kim Krapdashian and Kanye West *vomit* I’d much rather have a Gwen Stafani or a Tilda Swinton over those couples, you know, people who really are known and matter substantially more? Yes. Those!

London, on the other hand has been even more disappointing. A group of “It” fashionaista models, Laura Bauley, Poppy Delevigne, bloggers and self-affected children, Alexa Chung, Kelly Osbourne, Pixie Geldof… oh and of course, Lady Gaga jumping up and down looking for attention, again… a bit like an annoying little dog, but worse.

The highlights of the lowlights so far:

At Henry Holland, Alexa Chung tells the other spiffingly fabulous fashion twigs how she doesn’t even know why anyone is interested in her.

Kelly Osbourne interrupts and offers advice on how to wear sunglasses and speak in two accents at once. And say “all fashion” all the time on TV.

At Burberry, Anna Wintour having a old girls meet ‘n greet with photographer Mario Testino. She actually looks her age in this snake print suit from the cruise ship boutique.

Dita Von Teese starts an impromptu outdoor burlesque by sexily dropping her umbrella then remembers she’s wearing corseting that renders her incapable of even scratching her head and waitis a knight in a shining retro tuxedo to save her.

Who ever the hell Tali Lennox is (I guess by the name she is Annie’s kid – maybe!), I like her Burberry Prorsum swag.

Who ever the hell this chick is needs to go back to her struggling artists loft and brush her hair…

Samantha Cameron wonders why she can’t sit with a bitchy fashion blogger or a child of celebrity.

Child of American music royalty, Daisy Lowe shows no sign of her step mother, Gwen Stefani’s style, grace or genuine rock ‘n roll attitude.

14 year old Marc Jacobs’ muse Elle Fanning shows up to Topshop Unique straight from school… Aaah, does it make you miss how glamourous school uniform can be? hahha. NAAT.

Olivia Palermo does it up proper fashion, like also at Unique. She has an uncanny ability to make you want to buy clothes that will make you look like you are wearing a black plastic bin bag.

…well that’s all for now folks.

Let’s Talk About Kontouring…

Hiya Poutlings

I am pretty sure the title of my heading has most of you NOT reading this post, but those of you that are brave enough to face what I have to say, well, I salute you, in the nude 😀

Kim Krapdashian has for some reason taken to Twitter to show her followers just how she pretends to be someone from the cast of the Lion King draws a facelift on under makeup before an apparent photo shoot…

Fascinating, isn’t it?

If it were anyone else I would be seriously congratulating their time and effort they have put into creating such a wonderful masterpiece. Contouring is not necessarily hard, it takes lots of patience and blending the shit outta your brushes, it takes someone who has patience to be able to put this facade everyday… someone like Kim.

Does the sight of the Krapdashian tongue and the thought of where it’s been make anyone else want to be boarded up in a nunnery for the rest of your life?

*shudders*

The end result is the caked face we’ve come to know and love or hate, depending on who you are….
