Long time, no see …

So yes, I’m embarrassed at not writing, and simultaneously far too embarrassed about it to actually write something to combat the initial embarrassment of not writing. My head, it’s a complicated place, at times. It’s not so much that there has been nothing going on, rather the exact opposite; for example, if I started this update simply by listing only the things that have happened […]

Goop “pop up” store opens in London September 25th 2018

And all I have to say to that is: Take your stupid jade eggs, and your fines for medically misleading claims, and do just fuck off, dear. Kisses, Lippie x PS fuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckoff fuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckoff fuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckoff fuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckoff fuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckoff fuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckofffuckoff PPS: fuck off.

Beauty Pie – the buyers club for beauty lovers(?)

So, Beauty Pie, then.  Launched with no little amount of hyperbole towards the end of last year by Marcia Kilgore, the founder of (amongst others): Soap & Glory and FitFlop.  Hyped as “makeup without the markup”, the website boasts of “luxury” lipsticks from £2.84, eyeshadow palettes from £6.94, and foundations from £4.75. Sounds amazing, right?  By cutting out the middleman, using generic packaging, and charging […]

No7 Lift and Luminate #BetterTogether Trial Results and Review

This is a sponsored post on behalf of No7 In January, I started taking part in the #BetterTogether Challenge with No7, whereby I was going to be using only their revamped range of Lift and Luminate skincare for a month.  Now, I’m back to talk about the results! Now, it has been a heck of a challenge for me, and the temptation to continue picking […]

Zelens Extreme Velvet Lipsticks – Nude Plum, Red, Dark Red, Merlot

When I heard Zelens were launching a new lipstick range, I was delighted, for Zelens are one of my (if not the very pinnacle) favourite skincare brands of all time, and so I was incredibly excited at the thought of actual lipsticks from them.  I already own several of the lip glosses that were launched a couple of years ago, and they’re amongst my most-used […]

Amouroud Silk Route Fragrance Review

 I haven’t read too much about the release of the latest fragrance from Amouroud; Silk Route, and I’m wondering why that is?  I attended the launch back in December, and I was a little captivated. Silk Route is, like all Amouroud fragrances, based around Oud, but is not an in your face “oud” fragrance. It surprised me by being positively gourmand, and in my favourite […]

Jusbox Perfumes: Use Abuse Review

 Sometimes a packaging concept is just so perfect that it hits all the right notes for a brand.  Italian music-lovers Andrea and Chiara Valdo created Jusbox and launched their initial four-fragrance range last summer, and it’s just too beautifully done to go without comment.  From the gorgeous 78ml bottles to the stunningly detailed vinyl record-like lids, to the detailed boxes and packaging materials, every detail […]

Beaufort London Fathom V Fragrance Review

 I confess, I’m sat here at my keyboard with literally no idea of what I’m about to write, so if this “review” of Beaufort London Fathom V makes even less sense than usual, you’ll know why. First things first, since losing my sense of smell nearly three years ago, and being still deep in the recovery phase from parosmia (where everything I smell is distorted […]

Guerlain Parure Gold Radiance Foundation – Rose Clair

   There’s no getting around it, £55 is very, very expensive for a foundation.  There’s such a wealth of wonderful foundations around the £20-30 range these days (and even less, truth be told), that why would you even think about splashing out on something costing double the average?  That was my thinking before I bought a bottle of Guerlain Parure Gold Radiance Foundation, anyway. However, […]

Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse #PixiPretties Collection

Right. I’ve started this “review”, like, fifteen different ways now, and they were all a complete bag of utter shite.  I’m out of the habit of blogging at the moment, admittedly, and I can’t deny it, but there’s no way for me to write a “proper” review of this anyway. She’d squash me. The truth is that Caroline is a friend of mine, and Pixi […]

No7 Lift and Luminate #BetterTogether Challenge

 This is a sponsored post on behalf of  No7. It is always good to challenge yourself to do something different once in a while. Towards the end of last year, some exciting (terrifying!) opportunities arose for me, and they have led me to challenge myself to do more exciting – and different – things this year, too.  And, as a skincare junkie, who better to […]

An update!

It’s been a little while since I posted.  Sorry, but I’ve been ill – amongst other things! I’m currently working on something majorly exciting (to me), and blog posts might be a bit thinner on the ground for a while than previously, but I do still have things to talk about, I promise. I will be back … More soon. This post: originated at: Get […]
