Cheryl Cole Is UK’s Most Influential Beauty – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 20 June 2014

Cheryl Cole shows boobs in open front white dressCheryl Cole Is UK’s Most Influential Beauty – a new survey has revealed that the UK’s most influential female beauty icon is singer and new X Factor judge Cheryl Cole.

The new survey asked 1000 women which celebrity most influenced their choice of beauty products and Cheryl came out top of the list with an incredible 80% of the women surveyed admitting to buying the same beauty products used by their favourite celebrities in an attempt to pull off the same look.

It also seems that money is no object when it comes to recreating your favourite celeb’s red carpet make-up as a quarter of those surveyed admitted to spending up to £80 on an individual cosmetic item that a celebrity had either endorsed or admitted to using in their beauty regime. On top of this an additional 60 women actually admitted that they would spend as much as £200 on a single beauty product if they believed it would make them look like the celebrity who used it.

On average the total spent by women looking to capture that celeb beauty icon look was £312. This and the fact that most women (75%) said they would go straight out and buy a new beauty product that their beauty icon had posted about on Twitter or any other social media site must have the cosmetic company marketeers rubbing their hands with glee.

As well as those selling the beauty products there is also a strong market for beauty instructional products with a number of blogs and video sites that offer help to “look like …” having large followings. For instance one site offering instruction in how to get the Cheryl Cole look has already attracted around 3/4m hits and this figure is still rising. Read the rest of this entry »

Here's Johnny - scariest movie scene of all-time from The Shining starring Jack Nicholson as Jack TorranceScariest Movies and Scariest Movie Scenes – a survey has rated the scariest movies and scariest movie scenes of all-time by using scientific data.

After conducting a survey amongst 10k customers to find out what they thought were the most frightening movies Play.com then fitted heart rate monitors to cinema-goers to discover which scene in these movies caused the biggest spike in their heart rate.

The Top 10 Scariest Movies are pretty much what most movie fans would expect with appearances for classics such as The Exorcist, A Nightmare On Elm Street and The Silence Of The Lambs. However it is director Stanley Kubrick’s adaptation of the Stephen King novel The Shining which comes out on top as the scariest movie based on the reactions of cinema audiences.

The overall scariest movie scene turns out to be where Jack Nicholson’s character Jack Torrance utters that classic horror film line “Here’s Johnny” as he smashes down a door with an axe.

For several very scary scenes you may wish to pick A Nightmare On Elm Street or The Exorcist for your horror movie night in as they have a number of heart rate raising scenes which bring the average increase in heart rate to 25.9% for both of these movies compared to the average increase of 23.3% for those watching all of The Shining.

If you are planning a Scary Movie Marathon weekend sometime here is the full Top 10 list of the Scariest Movies of All-Time as voted for by Play.com customers: Read the rest of this entry »

Most Popular British Actor – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 28 October 2013

Sean Connery as James Bond in first Bond movie Dr No (1962)Most Popular British Actor – for the first time ever information has been released to the public from the influential Q Scores.

The Q Scores are said to be highly influential amongst US movie bosses and until now the results have not been made available to those outside the industry.

As well as scoring the appeal of British actors other Q Score surveys have looked at sports stars, cartoon characters and a recent survey even rated the appeal of various deceased celebrities.

The Q Scores are compiled every 6 months by asking a sample of 1500 people from the New York state area how much they like and trust a celebrity or product. Those being surveyed have to give one of the following answers to each person or product they are asked about: A. One of my favorites.   B. Very Good   C. Good   D. Fair   E. Poor   F. Never heard of.

The Q Score is then worked out by dividing the number of those who answered A. by how many people actually recognised the person or product being surveyed (A through to E) and multiplying this figure by 100. This Q Score is well thought of by the entertainment industry as it shows not just viewing figures but also whether the person or product is a genuine favourite and therefore likely to result in stronger and more consistent sales, plus more spin-offs, DVDs, Blu-Rays etc. Read the rest of this entry »
