Nair Nourish Upper Lip Kit Review

Hello! My name is Get Lippie, and I have a moustache.  If you’re reading this, you’ve probably got one too, man, woman or child.  Don’t worry, there’s no judgement here, but there is shedloads of judgement out there, this I know.  I had someone recently say in an email that they loved my choice of lipsticks on instagram, but my upper-lip hair was making them […]

Clinique Sweet Pots ptII – Black Honey and Red Velvet

It’s hard having completist tendencies.  I mentioned Clinique Sweet Pots a couple of weeks ago, and mentioned that I wanted Red Velvet and Black Honey.  And lo! Here are Red Velvet and Black Honey (note to Clinique, I can’t resist Black Honey anything, as well you know).  From left to right here are Candied Cassis, Orange Blossom and Pink Framboise, then Red Velvet and Black […]

Clinique Sweet Pots

Packaged like macarons, and available in the sweetest of shades, the Clinique Sweet Pots are rather cute and lovely. This is Candied Cassis, Orange Blossom and Pink Frambois. Yeah, I broke the cardinal blogging rule and swatched before shooting! Consisting of a finely-textured sugar scrub and a gently tinted balm in either side, these are Clinique’s answer to Lush’s Lip Scrubs.  The idea is that […]

Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil

I was so bummed when I missed out on the original, limited edition release of the Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil earlier this year, I love lip oils – don’t think enough brands do them – and these ones literally sold out in seconds.  Available in two flavours, Honey (on the left up there) and Raspberry (right), the Instant Light Lip Oils don’t really […]

Burberry Kisses Gloss in 77 Tangerine and 97 Plum Pink

There’s no joy much more fun than a brand new lipgloss, and, as I love a bit of Burberry, and a bit of lipgloss,  so when a couple of them were included in a recent delivery from the now-iconic British brand, I was happy indeed. The perspex tubes that make the glosses look like test tubes, and the lovely pewter packaging all add up to […]

Skincare (and other stuff) of the week 06.09.15

Because I’m knee-deep in the middle of a proper skincare testing period, the only things I’ve really been changing around at the moment are my cleansers, and the four in these pictures this week really are amongst my most favourite cleansers of all.  From the slightly minty-fresh (but not overpowering or drying) balm of Zelens Z Pure Cleansing Liquid Balm to … The fragrance-free, industrial-strength, […]

Sephora Cream Lip Stains

  I have a full-time job, I run two blogs, and I do volunteer work on a regular basis.  That said, I’m also a lazy bitch, so I like my makeup to last, and last well.  I’ve not met a lipstain that works so well as the Sephora Cream Lip Stains, whenever I’m in Paris, I make a beeline for them, and buy backups of […]
