Lipsticks of the Week: Soft Reds

   It’s been a red kind of week, but I couldn’t face my usual bright “in your face” kind of shades, so softer, gentler, easier-wearing kinds of reds (and a pink) have dominated my look this week: From left to right we have: Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in Red Velvet – I’ve largely ignored the Revlon Lip Butter hype, as the colours have all been […]

Boots Avert Electronic Cold Sore Machine

  There has been a plague upon the House of Lippie this winter, a veritable plague of cold-sores.  If you follow me on Twitter at all, you’ll know that barely a week has gone by for the last couple of months without me complaining about yet another crop of painful blisters.  Sorry about that by the way! Teal is simply THE colour for cold sores this […]

Burts Bees Giant Lip Balm Tube

I love a good lip balm or two (or five, or ten, or twenty or so) and I was delighted when this giant tube of beeswax goodness turned up from Burts Bees recently, I may even have clapped my hands a little.  I’m a sad old … person, sometimes.  But, there’s something about the glee you get from an oversized version of a small product […]

A sneaky peek …

Some people are fascinated by my array of lipsticks, so here’s a sneaky peek at something I’ll be posting about in more detail very soon: Doesn’t look much there (well, to me it doesn’t, but I’m aware that they are jammed in that drawer four or five deep), but that’s only one part of my collection …

Chanel Coco Rouge Swatches

  I make no apologies whatsoever for featuring Chanel’s latest lipstick offerings once again. Beyond gorgeous formulations, pigmented, light and beautifully moisturising, they’re everything YSL Rouge Voluptes should be, but aren’t (I’ll give you my thoughts on those another time). Since I unexpectedly picked up Cambon way back in January, I’ve since been out and bought two more, Mademoiselle, and Rouge Orage.  Cambon is a […]

Here is the nude …

One thing I don’t actually find as universally appealing as we’re told is the “nude lip” look that’s so popular these days.  I’ve noticed in my trawls around a lot of magazines, books and blogs that a lot of women appear to be scared of colour on their lips, and I’m wondering why that is?  Get your lip colour right, I always think and you […]
