Jimmy Carr in ‘Mancake’ at Elle Style Awards 2009

By Will Reid on February 11th, 2009

wenn2282700.jpgYesterday, I was on my way to Gatwick after a holiday in Brighton and the radio came on with Jimmy Carr talking about such things as ‘Guyliner’ and ‘Manscara.’ It turned out that Carr had himself been wearing these rather controversial at the Elle Style Awards on Monday night and he explained that “you can’t polish a turd but you can sprinkle glitter on it.”

At Brandish, we have already investigated this trend of man make-up with hilarious videos and opinion pieces. What do you think? Tell us on our Facebook wall.

Where did all the Men go?

By Jonathan Smith on August 8th, 2008

First it was Guyliner and men’s tights, now it’s a squaddie getting plastic surgery. Chris Mitchell, after leaving the Army and returning to civvy street, began to gain weight losing his ‘hunk’ status. Finding it tough to lose the chunk through conventional means he forked out for plastic surgery having liposuction and a (man) breast reduction. Chris tells the full story of his time at the plastic surgeons over at Rex Features.

Though Chris is obviously happier now after the surgery I’m really unconvinced about plastic surgery unless backed up by a medical condition, it seems to me like men’s make up and tights, a step too far. Be proud of your beer belly, imagine how much money you spent creating it. It’s your right to smell a little off from time to time. Grow your body hair loud and proud because shaving it makes you look like a child.

Please don’t leave it up to the likes of me to uphold the principles of being a man, because it’s going to be a dark, dark day when I am considered manly.Tell us what you guys think of plastic surgery and how do you girls like your men; a little rough around the edges or polished like a dainty ornament.

Check out more pictures of Chris and the top 5 cosmetic surgery procedures for men after the jump.

Brandish Review: Korres Men’s Range Products

By Will Reid on August 5th, 2008

korres.jpg“Oh golly gosh- that looks like it may be over 100ml. Oops for you!” *Grab* “Now, do you know how to reschedule a flight?” I’d like to say that the dragon-lady at Gatwick had spoiled my day by treating me like a dumb blonde (brunette guy by the way!) but it was truly ruined when she took my new Korres products.

The Ginseng Facial Fluid and Ruscus and Chestnut Eye Cream are two amazing products combining natural ingredients with that all improtant dermatological testing for an intense cosmetic experience.

Read on for the full review including product details and ingredients.

Guyliner, mancake, call it what you will: the male make-up revolution

By admin on July 30th, 2008

From our beauty site Kiss & Make Up:

Male make-up is taking the entertainment industries (that’s cosmetics/ fashion/ music and film) by storm. No longer is a touch of bronzer and a dab of lipstick meant only for dressing-room gents; ‘guyliner,’ ‘mancake’ and ‘mank-up’ are all terms being more frequently used amongst the youth of today.

Everyone is searching for an adopter of this trend (because, let’s face it- after Beck’s ‘sarong’ drama no-one wants to be the first man standing.) Zac Efron seems to have been hoisted up as the sail of this cosmetics boat but I, as an image-conscious male, don’t exactly see Efron as one to mimic.
