LipsNspritz of the week 10 January 2016

I fell in love this week, and I never expected to! It started on Monday with a brief squirt of Estee Lauder Youth Dew, and it continued later in the week and it ended up with my buying a bottle (or two!) of the matching bath oil, which is divine, by the way, and every home should have a (tiny) bottle. Youth Dew opens surprisingly […]

LipsNspritz of the Week 06.12.15

After spending last weekend doused in Tom Ford’s finest Black Orchid (albeit in the new Eau de Toilette version rather than the EdP), I was obviously stuck in a rather Tom Ford kind of groove for the early part of this week.   Monday brought Tom Ford Black Violet, a scent which I have always preferred to Black Orchid, for some reason (but it’s now discontinued), […]

Lipsticks of the (last) Week

Autumn is really kicking in now (anyone else put their central heating on? No?  Just me then?), so my lipsticks have taken a turn for the deeper and darker again … Here we have (l-r): Vincent Longo’s Americana, Guerlain KissKiss in Cherry Pink, Bare Minerals Lead The Way, Revlon Colourstay Opulent Garnet Revlon Colourstay Divin Port Wine OCC Matte Lip Tars in NSFW & Strumpet […]

Lipsticks of the Week

  Ah, Lipstick of the week, it’s been a while, eh?  I assure you, I’ve been wearing just as much lipstick as always, but there’s been no sunlight for pictures for ages!  With the change in the weather recently, autumnal berries and plums have been calling out to me this week, so this is what I’ve been wearing: Boots No7 Soft Ruby Lipstick Queen Saint […]

Bare Mineral Marvelous Moxie Lipgloss in Hypnotic

Lipgloss isn’t something I associate with Bare Minerals very much.  Lipstick, yes (their Marvelous Moxie range is very well, and aptly named), and of course, there is their iconic range of mineral foundations and powders, but … lipgloss? Look at it.  LOOK AT IT!  Oh, those prismatic pigments, this is so pretty! And with flash, so you can see how the colour changes in different […]

Current Favourite Blushers

I didn’t see the point of blusher for the longest time, and so, for many years I didn’t use it.  I’ve had high-colouring for many years, so the thought of adding MOAR COLORZ to my skin was a scary one, to say the least!  These days, however, I’d rather leave the house without lipstick than without my blusher! Blush brightens the face, and can add […]

OPI & Bare Minerals Collaboration

It’s becoming more and more trendy to match your nails to your lipstick, or your lips to your nails (depending on preference), and Bare Minerals – queens of collaborations at the moment – and OPI have teamed up this winter to help you out. These cute duos, consisting of a Pretty Amazing lip colour and a matching OPI polish apiece will be exclusively available from […]

MAC Club Vs Bare Minerals Mirage

Club is one of those iconic products from MAC that most appear to have in their makeup bag.  Described as a “red-brown with green pearl” it is, in fact, a beautiful, and versatile eyeshadow that deserves its cult status. When I was sent the new Bare Minerals eyeshadow duo in “The Vision”, I thought one of the shades looked familiar, so I thought I’d do […]

Bare Minerals & Virgin: Upper Class Red Lip Colour

When you think of Virgin Atlantic, what’s the first thing you think about?  Well, I normally see red, to be honest, the livery of the planes, the uniform, the  …  lipstick? Well, with that in mind, Virgin Atlantic have teamed up with Bare Minerals to create their perfect red shade, matched to the uniforms worn by all Virgin Atlantic staff, designed to last through long-haul […]

Spring has Sprung with Bare Minerals at John Lewis

With the changing of the seasons, sometimes it’s really nice to get a change of look to your makeup too.  I popped along to John Lewis on Oxford Street last week, and treated myself to a Bare Minerals “makeunder” tutorial, which I enjoyed very much indeed.  Bare Minerals is new to John Lewis, and to celebrate, until the 27th April they’re inviting people along to […]

Bare Minerals High Shine Eyeshadows Moonshine and Meteorite

L – R Moonshine, Meteorite I discovered these quite by accident – Meteorite appeared in a goody-bag, and I was so impressed that I went out the very next day and bought another one!  Like the Armani Eyes to Kill shadow I showed you yesterday, these appear to be another cream-shadow hybrid and are exceptionally long wearing and crease proof. Housed in a tube, the […]
