Best Buys From Wilko’s Body Collection England Beauty Range

When someone mentions Wilko, the words “cruelty-free beauty buys” probably don’t spring to mind initially. However, Wilko’s new vegan beauty brand, stocked exclusively at the retailer, may just be up to the job. Body Collection England is being sold exclusively at the store (as well as on its own website), both in store and online, and it sounds verrry intriguing.

First off, the price point is certainly something to get excited about. Products start at just £1, and nothing is more than £10. Not only are the prices appealing, but the formulas are too, given that everything is both vegan and cruelty-free.

The range is full of everything you’d need to re-vamp your makeup collection, from face bits to lips and eyes. There are some great eyeshadow palettes for delightfully low prices, along with pretty liquid lipsticks, highlighters, and a tinted moisturiser that is selling for just £4. Yep, a

2021 Jaguar XF gets new interior, down to four-cylinder engines and sedan body style

Just like the F-Pace, the 2021 Jaguar XF luxury sedan is getting a light refresh for the new model year. Unlike the F-Pace, the XF’s new features are mostly limited to interior and exterior design. And it also loses an engine and body style option.

From the outside, not much has changed with the XF. It has a fresh grille, new LED headlights and taillights, and fender vents with the “Leaper,” the Jaguar cat logo. It’s inside where things have really changed. A completely new dashboard design has been added, which looks a lot like the F-Pace’s. It has a full-width air vent motif at the top, and below it are panels with nice stitching and either open-pore or aluminum trim.

The focal point is the new 11.4-inch infotainment system screen made of glass with a magnesium frame. Powering it is the latest Pivi operating
