We might be huge fans of British television (take a peek at Idris Elba and you’ll understand), but our knowledge of British slang is dicey at best — is “cheeky” a term of endearment or should I be offended? Would it be rude to greet my parents with “watcha”?
Luckily, a universal love of beauty products transcends all slang barriers, so we can confidently say we’re chuffed to feature these dyno beauty boxes from the United Kingdom.
