Spell magazine is a mini magazine that is available in Pride magazine and black beauty and hair magazine. It’s only a few pages long. Its published by Feme Ltd- the makers of hair extensions/wigs like sensationnel. So it is in essence a giant advertisement? Yes, yes it is. But Oh they do so, so well.
Yes it is covered in their hair brands but they give good makeup advice, glossy high res quality photographs and have some good articles and industry insight.
It may just be one bright and colourful advert, but so are all the major black beauty publications in the UK and at least it doesn’t look dated and is actually relevant.
It’s some bubblegum pop fluffy read, and I love it.

What can I say I’m a sucker for pictures and I like seeing images of women of colour.
