Chutzpah’s Barometer

by Katie on August 31, 2015


A Chutzpah look back over the week’s good, bad and indifferent including the “don’t even go there’s.”



Vichy Dermablend Fluid Corrective – A huge fan of the Dermablend setting powder, Dermablend’s foundation (30% pigment concentration) has had a makeover in terms of its look with new darker colour additions to the range (coffee & espresso). It’s the go-to hypoallergenic camouflage foundation for women and men, to expertly conceal minor to moderate skin imperfections (such as uneven skin tone, dark circles, redness & scarring). Light in texture but a flawless finish. Trust Vichy.

‘Gloss: The Work of Chris von Wangenheim’ – Essential retrospective of the influential Seventies photographer’s work. Published by Rizzoli 15th September 2015.

Asket – New affordable, luxury Swedish men’s T-shirt brand that women can get behind – available in 5 sizes and 3 lengths.


Interviewing Harrods shoppers about current affairs – As seen in the New York Times. Does Real Life™ actually intrude upon their swift cab ride from their Bulgari Hotel/home in Hans Crescent up the road to the store?

Anya Hindmarch – The witty accessories matriarch makes over Selfridges car park in September for a new pop-up inspired by motorway service stations.

Yazbukey for Shu Uemura – Collaboration between the cult beauty brand and Paris-based jewellery designer, featuring Madonna’s favourite cleansing oil.

Four London’s Breakfast and Blow salon – Saving the ladies from lank locks in Sketch on Conduit Street this coming fashion week.


The Loss of Boo Hiss! The Chutzpah favourite online resource has its last day today. All is not lost as it’s replaced by


Snapchat – Taking social media to a fresh low for self-promoting hoes and himbos to virtually lap each other up.

Lily-Rose Depp – The actress/singer/model/LGBT rights advocate/whatever is the spawn of an impeccable gene pool and obviously we despise her (only kidding!)

Donald Trump – We’re starting to think that the Weetabix-haired plutocrat was taken over by Democrats-controlled android a few years back, or is clinically insane. One of the two.

World Beard Day – Congratulations guys, you’ve managed to grow hair. Why not take some time out to work on your personality now? (September 5th 2015)

The Caitlyn Jenner Halloween costume –  Transphobia is now a marketing opportunity in the United States. “Land of the Free”?

Christmas menus – We can barely decide on what to have for dinner today, never mind in four months time.


The ‘Cold Feet’ revival – ITV’s smug “dramedy” was one of the worst things in the Nineties, after Fred and Rose West and Chumbawamba.

Charli XCX for – Sorry people, but does anyone actually want to dress like this routinely appalling red carpet catastrophe?

Women-only train carriages – One small step but an even greater leap would be not cutting police services to the bone so that women feel safe enough to walk out of their house at night. A bit of restraint from the menfolk wouldn’t go amiss either, eh, lads?
