Much as I feel irritated to promote a magazine that doesn’t want to return the favour, I do absolutely love Stylist. Somehow I always end up being in London on a non-Stylist day, but scan the train and station anyway in case someone has dropped one. The disappointment of being offered a Shortlist is untold, because my hopes are raised for a nano-second. (Shortlist is the Stylist for boys, kinda.) If I score a Stylist I am happy all day. It’s one of the very few magazines that I actually read now (although I have a soft spot for Elle and Grazia).
I might also say that Stylist has totally turned over the trend for certain snobby brands to ‘prefer not to be featured in a free paper’. Everyone’s desperate to get their product into Stylist now and for that I love it even more.
Anyway, all this is leading up to saying that they have quite a cool competition that I thought you’d like. For their 100th issue, Stylist are putting together a couple of special things, one of which is hunting for beauty obsessives to test out some new products and take part in a super-glam beauty shoot to appear in the 100th anniversary edition entitled Made By You. You’ll need to be free on Saturday 15th October to take part in the shoot, and they’ll pay travel expenses, and I hope, give you a sandwich.

Good luck – I’d love it if some BBB readers got on the shoot – let me know if you’re picked!
