The Hi Style Best Beauty Buys are back!

Due to the immense popularity of the Hi Style Best Beauty Buys last year, we just had to do it again. From lipstick to hand cream we want to shout about new launches and handbag heroes. Over the past few months, our dedicated testers of different ages and beauty preferences tested new beauty must-haves and classic beauty hero products! We’ve been busy swatching, applying and lathering ourselves in foundation, lipstick, hair masks and much more to see what the world of luxury and high street products have on offer. We’ve been tanning guinea pigs so you won’t have to suffer an ill-fated orange look. What can we say? We’re women of the people!
