    Nothing to do with beauty awards more to do with not being able to buy pies and pasties on I am a coeliac one of many..who find the real pie company a turn off as we cannot eat them…how about doing gluten free hours.

    I really loved watching the show and so intrigued by Laura Geller Balance and Brighten. However, when I look on your website, you are completely sold out of this in Fair apart from the compact without a brush. Please can you tell me whether you will be getting anymore???
