Beauty: want total cover? These foundations are just the job — I only recently discovered that Estée Lauder's Double Wear - Britain's bestselling foundation - is such a huge seller that it could be classified as an entire brand in itself.

Life - Sali Hughes first world problems — I attended a party last weekend. Making characteristically crap small talk, I mentioned to a male guest that my train had been so late that I hadn't had a chance to eat before coming out, and to holler if he spotted a nibbles tray because I was bloody starving.

News & Views - Sali Hughes on Bill Cosby — This week showed that even in a digital age, a magazine cover can still change the world. New York's latest issue featured the photograph and testimony of 35 alleged victims of rape and sexual assault by TV star Bill Cosby.

Beauty: Sali Hughes’ summer foot makeover — Despite our year-round longing for summer, the woeful state of our feet suggest its arrival still comes as something of a shock. As soon as the sun makes an appearance, out scuttle rough, gnarly, unloved feet like lice from under a rock, prematurely out and about in flip-flops and Birkenstocks.

Life - Sali Hughes is 40 and she doesn’t care who knows — Recently, at a radio appearance, the very nice female presenter leaned over immediately before we went on air, and asked me if I'd be offended if she were to mention that I am 40, preferring listeners not to know. Baffled, I said of course not, why would I?

Beauty: exceptionally good nail polishes — Ibelieve that beauty is about more than buying products - it's also about why and how we use them. That's why this week marks a new, longer column offering a great deal more flexibility. If just one product blows me away, I can now tell you about it without running out of room.

"Housing benefit saved me as a teenager" — It's now widely acknowledged that last week's budget hit low-income working families harder than anyone else. While people understandably became enraged at having been duped by a campaign that hung its hat on helping hard-working families, fewer seem as aggrieved by George Osborne's decision to scrap the automatic entitlement to housing benefit for 18- to 21-year-olds (he suggests, extremely vaguely, that exceptions will be made for "the vulnerable and other hard cases").

Beauty: how to avoid self-tan disasters — If, like me, you're prone to buying a self-tan, spend ages using it once, then throw it in the cupboard to slowly turn green until evicted to a bin liner, then a gradual tanner should prove a wiser buy. These are effectively body creams with a lower dose of DHA (the smelly tanning ingredient) than fake tan.
