Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette

 Not so much a review this as just a deep sigh of: “IT IS SO PRETTY, I CAN NEVER MAR ITS FABULOUS BEAUTIFULOSITY BY ACTUALLY  USING IT”, the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette is released online now and costs £43. Just look at that damned bejewelled cover.  LOOK AT IT. Oh, and the eyeshadows are quite pretty too: Arranged beautifully in ombre-d colour groups, there’s […]

Update at The Parosmia Diaries

It has been quite a while since I updated my other blog: The Parosmia Diaries, and I’ve had a little flurry of emails re my smell difficulties recently, so I thought it was time to dust it off and get back on with it.  So here’s the first parosmia-based post in over a year (it’s been a very busy year), you can read it here: […]

Murad Eye Lift Firming Treatment

 Getting older sucks, and I can sum up why in just two words: reading glasses.   I had fairly major eye surgery as a kid, and my optical prescription varies so wildly (one eye is long sighted, and the other is short sighted) that one optician told me years ago that I would never need reading glasses.  He. Was. Wrong. I do so need them, so […]

Jo Malone London Launch Basil and Neroli Fragrance

I was lucky enough to be invited along to the launch of Jo Malone London Basil and Neroli fragrance earlier this year,  and I’m very glad I did go, because this little bottle of sunshine hasn’t left my handbag since.  I’m a huge fan of Lime, Basil and Mandarin, the brands “signature” fragrance and I was delighted when I discovered that Jo Malone London were […]

Mugler Alien Candle

  Finally, the nights are drawing in, and we have perfect candle weather!  I love candles, own hundreds, but this Saturday was the first night we’ve lit a candle in the new flat, and we’ve been here nearly six months now! And what a one to start candle-season off with.  Recently released by Mugler perfumes, this Alien-scented candle is a joy.  I love Alien, with […]

Armani Lip Magnets launch nationwide on October 28th

 2016 has been a great year for lipstick lovers, especially BRIGHT lipstick lovers, like, er … me! Armani have launched a great range of mattes recently – they’re currently exclusive to Selfridges, but they’ll launch nationwide on October 28th, and I have a bunch of them here.  In today’s post I’ll talk about the colours and the formula, and I’ll put swatches into the post […]

Philosophy Amazing Grace 20th Birthday Special Edition

The last time Amazing Grace appeared on this blog, I referred to it as an “anti-perfume”, the smell of clean laundry, and described it as perfect for people who don’t really like fragrance.  I stand by those things, but I also confess that I actually have a huge, sneaking, deep vat of love for it.  “Clean” fragrances are a not-so-secret vice of mine, the urge […]

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 […]

Murad Hydro-Dynamic Quenching Essense and Ultimate Moisture Review

 It’s hard work being a beauty blogger with sensitive skin, sometimes.  I’m a big fan of results-led, science-based skincare, and I have a clear preference for doctor brands that have a philosophy of really caring for skin, rather than just using skincare as line extensions for their other product ranges.  This isn’t to say that there isn’t good skincare coming from other more nature-based, or […]

Niod Photography Fluid Opacity 12% Review

Niod has exploded over the blogosphere recently, and, whilst slightly intrigued by the good press they’ve been getting, the overly-complex names, and overly-simplistic product descriptions have been confusing the heck out of me, so I’ve largely avoided them.  However, a few people I know and trust on Instagram have had good things to say about Niod Photography Fluid Opacity 12%, so I figured I’d take […]
