LipsNspritz 24 January 2016: The Lavender List

Lots of people don’t like lavender, and I have no real idea why. Its distinctive scent is unusual in having both floral and herbal facets to the scent, and the smell can range from menthol, to balsam, or (just a little, if you get a screechy batch) like cat pee.  But a good lavender fragrance is a thing of beauty, and this week, I thought […]

Burberry Christmas 2015 – Military Red Lips and Nails

Nothing says Christmas like red and gold, and Burberry have gone out of their way this year to package up some of their cult products (and add a couple of new ones) in a festive manner.  This might be my favourite collection of theirs in quite some time. Packaged in shiny golden livery, in a festive change from the traditional pewter, the mini-collection consists of […]

Burberry Christmas 2015 – My Burberry

For Christmas 2015 Burberry have re-released a bunch of their cult favourite products in a seasonally appropriate golden livery.  Today I’ll take a look at the fragranced products, and tomorrow I’ll show you the (beyond beautiful) Christmas makeup. In beautifully textured golden boxes, My Burberry, a blend of sweet pea, geranium and rose over a base of patchouli, has been released in both a golden […]

LipsNspritz 31.10.15

   It was definitely a week of two halves, lipstick-wise at least! Bright reds, by Guerlain (Rouge Parade), Burberry (Military Red) and Art Deco (Dita Von Teese collection) were the order of the day, particularly on Wednesday, when I felt a real need for power dressing, which called for a hugely long-lasting red (as the Art Deco is), and when paired with Donna Karan Signature […]

#LipsNspritz of the week 11.10.15

Life would be dull indeed without lipstick and perfume, I’ve made it a mission this last month or so to document my entire lipstick and perfume “wardrobe”.  The idea is to wear every perfume and lipstick that I own, and post my thoughts on each on Instagram every day.  I’m trying to do it without repeats, but I’ve decided to allow myself the occasional one […]

Burberry Kisses Gloss in 77 Tangerine and 97 Plum Pink

There’s no joy much more fun than a brand new lipgloss, and, as I love a bit of Burberry, and a bit of lipgloss,  so when a couple of them were included in a recent delivery from the now-iconic British brand, I was happy indeed. The perspex tubes that make the glosses look like test tubes, and the lovely pewter packaging all add up to […]

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 […]

Burberry Lip Velvet – Military Red

I’ve been researching red lipsticks rather thoroughly recently (for a piece in SLiNK), and, being fond of a bit of Burberry makeup, this has been a nice addition to my collection.  It’s from their new matte lipstick collection. It’s packaged in a matte tube, rather than the shiny pewter livery that we’re used to:  (personally, I prefer the shiny, but that’s just because I’m a […]

Burberry Lip Mist: Copper No. 202

The last thing I need is a new lipstick range to become obsessed by.  I mean, seriously it’s the last thing I need.  I’m already a fan of Burberry cosmetics, even though it’s taken me TWO YEARS to pick up a lipstick for some reason. Packaged in the brand’s signature print, it has to be said that these are some of the loveliest packaged lipsticks […]

Burberry Cosmetics land at Harrods …

So, as well as spending a little money with Dolce & Gabanna the other day, I also indulged in a little Burberry.  I hadn’t been planning to, but the sales girls were so friendly, and the colours were so much nicer than I was expecting, that I felt duty-bound to pick up a few bits and pieces!  After a bit of a mass swatch, I […]
