Finishing Touches: LipsNspritz of the Week 8th July 2016

It’s been a mixed bag, fragrance-wise this week.  It’s ostensibly summer, but I can’t imagine anything less summery than this dark and dank July we’re having so far!  Like with the weather, my perfume choices have been a bit all over the place, too. Monday brought Tangerine Vert from Miller Harris, a herbal-fresh and zingy citrus that was perfect for blasting away those dreadful Monday […]

LipsNspritz 13 December 2015

I really enjoyed this week’s #LipsNspritz, thanks to making a stupendous discovery about Shalimar that I’ve always missed before.  Sometimes having a “before” nose and an “after” nose thanks to my anosmia and my parosmia has it’s blessings!  Anyway, more about that when I get to the Thursday part of today’s post. Monday was Aesop Marrakech Intense with Lanolips Apples.  I love the peppery-spicy rose […]

Skincare of the Week 25/10/15

 It has been a long and busy week here at Get Lippie, and my lifestyle has shown a bit in my skincare choices, I’ve swapped to a more hydrating routine, and I’ve slipped a few new products in too.  I’ll be concentrating on some night-time routines this week.  More after the jump. Early on in the week, my skin was still a bit congested, so […]

Skincare of the Week: 17.10.2015

  I’ve been beauty blogging a long time, well over six years now, and in that time my interests have changed. From basically wanting to catalogue my lipstick collection (where the name came from), to learning to love (and grow) my fingernails, then COLOURS, COLOURS, COLOURS, and finally to where I am now, which is obsessed with skincare.  Mostly I’m too lazy to spend hours […]

Skincare of the Week 11.10.15

No blog posts last week because I was unwell last Sunday and I simply couldn’t face writing in the slightest.  I still kept up with my skincare routines though, because I do (occasionally) have standards …  The routine above was a night-time one mid-week, from when I had a congested chin – complete with zit!  I haven’t had a zit in a couple of years […]

What’s on my face this week? 27.09.15

I’m coming to the end of my “testing phase” with a few products right now, and to celebrate I’m going to be having a bit of a skincare week on the blog from tomorrow, so look out for some in-depth reviews from then.  In the meantime, here’s some pictures of the routines I’ve been using.  Above is Monday’s faceful, I’d dug out some old Aesop […]

Skincare of the Week 20.09.15

Or, welcome to another week of what I plaster onto my ugly mug 😉  I’m still trialling Omorovicza Blue Diamond Eye Cream, and Zelens Intense Defence Antioxidant Serum, though I was thwarted a bit in testing this week through circumstances, as we’ll see.  This was Monday’s face, and I forgot to photograph the moisturiser … :sigh: I wasn’t made for Mondays. Tuesday arrived, and I […]

Pleasure & Purpose With Aesop & Odette Toilette

By Luke I have been meaning for a long time to write about Aesop.  I remember Aesop from eons ago when the only place you could buy it was in Space.NK. It looked very smart and sort of clinical in its modest and understated medical grade brown glass jars and metal tubes. It was always a bit of a favourite – sceptical and unwilling as […]

Aesop Shine Oil

I’ve been styling my hair curly recently, and I’ve found that it always tends to lead to dryness at the ends.  Luckily, this turned up recently, and I’m a little bit in love with it. It’s an extremely lightweight oil, that spreads easily in the hair – you just need two or three drops which you spread over your palms, then smooth lightly through the […]
