Clinique, a leader in skin care and make-up innovation has launched High Impact Curling Mascara where 24 Hour Curl Meets 24 Hour Wear

Clinique, leader in skin care and make-up innovation, has announced the launch of their latest advance in long wearing mascara.

High Impact Curling Mascara is designed to provide dramatic volume plus extreme long-wearing non-smudging curl for 24 hours. Ideal for the woman who wants it all – big, bold lashes, long-wearing formula and astonishing curl that stays all day.

The new formulation introduces thermal technology to curling mascara. This long-wearing, innovative formula lasts 24 hours without running or smudging, but can be removed easily with warm water. A blend of lightweight Polymers and Silica provide a smooth, thin film that when dry, holds the curl in place without weighing down the lashes. And, with less wax in the formula, colour stays truer. Perfect for all lash types, New High Impact Curling Mascara won’t flake, clump or smudge. And, like all Clinique mascaras, it is not only Ophthalmologist Tested but it is also appropriate for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.

Clinique’s new brush applicator is specifically designed for this formula, featuring a curved brush to elongate and curl lashes for a more lifted appearance. Clinique’s exclusive brush distributes and coats lashes evenly, making them appear to stretch instantly with every stroke while the brush’s curve sets the curl in place. It is the perfect make up essential to make an eye-opening statement

The new High Impact Curling Mascara is part of Clinique’s New First Blush, Spring 2009 makeup collection, a simple, soft and completely feminine trend for Spring. Cheeks are the focus, showcasing a natural, youthful glow with New Quick Blush. Eyes are simple with a monochromatic wash of colour with Limited Edition Fresh Bloom Eye Shadow whilst lips are romantic and glossy with Long Last Gloss Wear SPF15. This wearable collection can be custom-fit to create a variety of looks for any occasion and is perfect for every skin tone.

The new High Impact Curling Mascara will be available in Black and Black/Brown at Clinique counters nationwide from February.

BedroomPleasures has announced that the Hitachi Magic Wand is now available in the UK, after previously only being available in the US

BedroomPleasures, one of the largest online sex and lingerie companies in the UK, has revealed that the Hitachi Magic Wand is now available in the UK, after previously only being available in the US.

The Hitachi Magic Wand has been available in the US for 25 years but following an increase in demand for the product in the UK and numerous requests from customers who had seen the product while in the US, BedroomPleasures decided to import it, with an increase of 20% in sales of the item this month.

Although the Magic Wand is marketed as a gentle massager, BedroomPleasures received reports from customers using the device for the first time as a vibrator and achieving their most intense orgasms ever.

The Hitachi Magic Wand is an electric massager intended for massaging muscles as well as erogenous zones. It was first used in the 1970’s as a medical device but is now one of the more widely known sex toys. The device features a soft, round flexible head measuring 2.5 inches in diameter with a nine inch handle. The Wand provides two levels of vibration speeds; 5000 and 6000rpm, that are controlled by a hand switcher located on the handle. Unlike many vibrators, the Magic Wand is plugged into a wall socket rather than using battery power.

Like other personal massagers, the Wand can be used as a muscle massager for soothing and relaxing sore muscles and nerves, with the intensive vibrating movements of the device against the muscles providing the increased blood supply to the areas that helps regenerate the tissues and release the painful sensations.

These properties have also helped the product become well known as a sex toy. It can be applied to the genital area or the anus for erotic simulation and can be used by men, women and couples. Some physicians have recommended the Magic Wand to women to increase genital sensitivity and enhance arousal.

The massager’s effectiveness as a sex toy for women has been widely publicised by a variety of sex writers, as well as appearing on nationally syndicated TV shows in the US, magazines and radio programs.

Formed in 2003, with the aim of selling high class sex aids of any nature on the internet, BedroomPleasures is now one of the largest online lingerie and sex toy companies in the UK, stocking over 3,000 products. BedroomPleasures serves hundreds of happy customers every day and provides same-day dispatches to the UK, Europe and beyond.

Jonathan Keith, director of Monstermatch Ltd said…”The consumer often pays too much to keep their retailer in business with the overheads. can give the consumer a fair price and quality service the high street retailer cannot attain.”

As the economic downturn takes its toll on the high-street, it may seem optimistic to start a new retail business. Yet this is precisely what has done, confident that a market exists for high quality products sold at recession beating prices. is an online retailer that sells iPods, laptops, and other hi-tech goods. It sells products at lower prices than consumers can get on the high-street and guarantees free delivery.

Far from suffering from the downturn, online retail has actually prospered. According to the IMRG Capgemini e-retail sales index, online spending increased by 16% last November compared to the previous year. This is likely to heighten competition for bargain prices during the coming year. Monstermatch, however, claims that it is not simply a bargain retailer, it wants to cement a relationship with its customers. For five pounds, a customer can buy a share in the company and enjoy special discounts. Monstermatch is hoping that this will encourage people to feel they have a stake in the retail experience and has offered to give customers a better deal if they can find cheaper prices elsewhere.
