The people have spoken! QVC Customer Beauty Awards…

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 2 - 2013

When it comes to judging the merits of beauty products, opinions don’t come much more highly-regarded than those of the end-user themselves.  Which is why I like the QVC Customer Beauty Awards.  QVC shoppers are a real pro-active bunch, you only need to read the product reviews on the website and check out the forums to understand how much effort they invest in being part of the QVC “community”, they’re hardcore!

Returning for another year, the QVC Customer Beauty Awards have been gathering ratings and votes from this tight-knit community over the past month and last night, the results of the best available at the shopping channel were revealed.

Across a total of 12 categories… 48 beauty product nominees battled it out to be crowned the ultimate winners, and here they are:

Best Moisturiser – Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream
Best Facial Cleanser – Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish
Best Haircare Product – Philip Kingsley Elasticizer
Best Foundation bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation
Best Nailcare Product Leighton Denny Crystal File Duo
Best Beauty Essential Product L’Occitane Hand & Foot Care Duo
Best Anti-Ageing Product Decleor Aromessence Iris
Best Make-Up Must-Have bareMinerals Prime Time Foundation Primer
Best Summer Essential Ultrasun Face 50+ Duo
Best Male Grooming Product Liz Earle Men’s Face Scrub & Cleanse & Polish
Best Targeted Treatment Gatineau Melatogenine Force Collagene Duo
Best Newcomer – Elemis Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm

All of these products are available to buy online at qvcuk.com

I was disappointed that the lovely Lipstick Queen Sinner range didn’t beat off the competition for best newcomer but the might of Elemis was just too strong!  Leighton Denny’s fabulous nail files triumphing over Seche Vite’s top coat made this SV dissident smile broadly but I was shocked that neither Emma Hardie nor Alpha-H picked up a win!

Did any of your favourites make the winner’s podium?


CEW (UK) Awards – The results are in and the winners are…

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 22 - 2011

Forget your usual beauty awards that announce crap like roll-on foundations as being the best thing since airbrushing or Maybelline’s ‘no lash’ (you know the one) as the greatest mascara since falsies were invented.

The Johnson & Johnson Beauty Care Journalism Awards…

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 28 - 2011

…were held earlier in the week at a swanky ‘do’ in London.

Attended by some of the country’s best journalists and writers, the awards recognise the work that UK beauty journalists do to educate and inform their readers through intelligent articles on skincare and beauty.

So, quite frankly… I have no idea how I managed to bag one.

I was awarded Best Beauty Blogger at the ceremony and will even get a trophy to proudly display next to my computer… or yano, in everyone’s face.  Repeatedly.

The Best Beauty Blogger category was introduced to the award line up for the first time this year and despite my jokes and general awkwardness, I really am very happy, proud and thankful to have been selected as the inaugural winner by the panel of judges.

I’d also like to give a shout-out to runner-up SCforM who writes a great grooming blog you should be following here.

Thanks for the support, banter and patience you guys show me as I bumble my way through this blogging thing, you make it so much fun.  Now I’m off to tell my husband that I shall henceforth answer only to the title of ‘award-winning’ wife.  What?
