Royal Wedding Fever Hits Cosmetic-Land!

With two days to go, it seems the whole country has gone Royal Wedding crazy! Not only is it the perfect excuse for a day off work, it’s a great excuse for brands to try to make a bit of extra money. If a commemorative tea towel or biscuit tin isn’t your thing (incidentally, have you seen the McVite’s tin? how rank?!) perhaps a beauty based item would be more your cuppa…

The Perfume Shop have released two perfumes called Tiny Idol Prince and Princess, just in time for the wedding. They bear a slight resemblance to Will and Kate, are £10 each for 28mls.

I am yet to sniff them myself, but according to the site, ‘Prince’s “notes combine to bring a sophisticated yet exuberant scent”, while ‘Princess’ s “notes cumulate to create a highly wearable light floral blend with refined sensibility.” I’d be really interested to hear if anyone has smelt them, what they thought of them?
The next thing I want to tell you about is an absolute genuis idea. Will and Kate nail wraps – and why the Hell not?! They are so geek-ily chic-ily kitch, I love them!

They are foil wraps, available in silver or white, with Will and Kate’s faces on them – how adorable! They are priced at £4.99 including P&P for one set, from Maarit UK.
Nails Inc have brought out a limited edition range in celebration of the Royal nuptials. ‘The Royal Collection’ features two limited edition polishes with glitzy lids, – ‘Will’ with the Union Jack lid, and ‘Kate’ with the sapphire lid, inspired by Kate’s engagement ring), and a quad of limited edition shades fit to make anyone feel like a Princess!
On a non-cosmetic note, I really do like the limited edition Oyster cards which have been made.
Around 750,000 of the Oyster cards have been made, and the usual charges apply – £5 deposit and £5 minimum top-up. They are available at all London Underground and London Overground Stations.
Have you found any other beauty related commemorative items? If so, please let me know 🙂

    Ahhhh those nail wraps look hilarious! Think I might just have to pick up a set. It's the call of the kitsch that I just can't resist.
