Storybook Cosmetics has pre-launched a new set of liquid lipsticks and they’re seriously dreamy.
The Wizardry and Witchcraft liquid lipsticks come in after the brand released their range of Wizardry and Witchcraft eyeshadow palette – a selection of shadows that features a number of magical, pigmented shadows.
The palette consists of metallic colours, including silvers, rose golds and emerald greens. Names of the shadows include ‘Potions’, ‘Charms’ and ‘Broomstick’ – basically, it’s any Harry Potter and makeup fanatic’s dream come true.
And so obviously, being Potterheads, we were super excited when we saw the release of the liquid lipsticks.

Nearly half of trans pupils in the country have attempted suicide.
This horrifying statistic cannot be denied or ignored, says trans author and broadcaster Paris Lees, who joined us on our latest mental health podcast, Mentally Yours.
‘Family rejection is a huge factor, bullying at school as well.
‘We know these kids are getting death threats. They’re getting bullied, lack of access to support medically.
‘And stigma as well – we know that stigma leads to poor mental and physical health,’ she said.
‘These kids are growing up and they’re seeing that they’re a joke, that they’re an object of pity or ridicule or disgust.
‘That was the only time that I ever saw someone like me when I was growing up.
‘So I think it’s really irresponsible the public discourse around trans at the moment which seems to be an excuse to insult us.

After a December which flew by in a haze of mulled wine and cocktails, I was fully committed to giving my kidneys a rest and reclaiming my productivity by cutting out the booze for a month, but the bizarre insomnia that came with it was unexpected.

A chicken-loving couple held their wedding reception in their local KFC.
48-year-old Edward Simms and his wife Cherish, 34, from Worcester, tucked into a bargain bucket after saying ‘I do’ at a nearby county hall.
Edward, a plant mechanic, and Cherish, a full-time mum, say that they and their 40 guests were waited on hand and foot – with sides, desserts and family-sized sharers being dished out instead of a fancy sit-down dinner.
Cherish had been so keen to have her wedding reception at KFC that she’d called the restaurant every month beforehand to make sure it was all going as planned.

If you don’t know about the current Tide Pod trend, we really wouldn’t recommend trying to catch up.
Stay in blissful ignorance. Do not acknowledge the world we now live in.
In case you do desperately need a recap, here’s the short story: The current big trend is eating Tide Pods. Tide Pods are little liquitabs of laundry detergent. People are eating them.
Now, you may have guessed this bit, but it’s really not a good idea to eat Tide Pods. The highly concentrated detergent really isn’t supposed to be consumed, and can end up causing severe chemical burns throughout the body.
So yeah, kids. Don’t… Read the full story

Driverless cars that let motorists relax while driving will be on our roads in 2022, say researchers.
We might be getting ahead of ourselves but perhaps it’s time to consider what we’ll actually get up to as cars ferry us to our destinations without the need for us to focus on driving.
Sex is the answer to that question for some.
A new survey revealed that 10% of Brits would have sex during a commute in a fully autonomous car.
The OnePoll survey, conducted by webuyanycar.com, asked 2,000 UK motorists who currently drive to and from work what they would do during a driverless commute.
10% of those surveyed said they’d use… Read the full story
We all know by now that Fenty Beauty was one of the few wonderful things to happen in 2017.
We knew it would be brilliant. Long have we wanted anything that would help us be more like Rihanna.
But few of us were prepared for just how great of an impact the beauty range had.
Finally, people of all skintones were being catered for, from those with albinism to darker skinned women who’d never been able to find the perfect foundation before. People thanked Rihanna for giving them the confidence to rock a red lip. To this day, you’ll still spot massive queues outside the Fenty section of Harvey… Read the full story

Benefits of going to the cinema: Getting to watch the latest films, an excuse to eat popcorn and pick n mix, high quality sound.
Benefits of watching a film at home: Getting to curl up on the sofa under a pile of blankets, the ability to press pause when you need to pee, and eating all the snacks you could desire.
If we could combine some of the benefits from watching a film at home with those of going to the cinema, our movie-watching experience would be truly glorious.
Pressing pause in a cinema wouldn’t work (think about how annoyed you’d be when the person at the back goes to… Read the full story

Don’t worry if you slept through this bit of important news, but last year the big lifestyle trend was clean sleeping.
Clean sleeping is essentially just a fancy phrase for getting a decent night’s sleep. The idea is that you get at least seven or eight hours of entirely uninterrupted sleep per night.
It’s a simple concept, right? We all know we should be getting enough high quality sleep.
But because our human nature is to refuse to do things we know are good for us (when’s the last time you had a nice plateful of broccoli, hmm?), we need a new, trendy way to encourage us to… Read the full story

Matching tattoos not only show solidarity and love but also a permanent connection, even if it is only skin deep.
Whether it’s new parents getting tattoos of their child’s name or brave lovers who want to seal the deal with ink, a tattoo commemorates a special bond.
