Finishing Touches: #LipsNspritz of the Week, June 12 2016

Summer’s coming!  Summer’s coming!  Well, hopefully it is, anyway!  My tastes have certainly turned to the more summery this week, anyway.  I started with Caron’s My Lang (which gave me and my husband a Woody Guthrie ear worm for several days), which is a sophisticated and creamy sun-lotion kind of a scent, which I really liked from first sniff. More about this soon.  I’m also […]

Finishing Touches (#LipsNspritz) of the Week 2nd May 2016

 Bright reds and dark berries, plus one glorious pink this week, alongside some classic fragrances too. Top left were the gorgeous white flowers of Narciso  For Her, which is a fragrance I love a great deal, and could even smell it slightly through my parosmia last year, which always grants a special place in my heart for a fragrance. I wore this on Friday with […]

Currently Testing …

As well as bringing you proper reviews of the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani collection soon, I’m also trialling a few new base products, namely the new Les Beiges  foundation in Rose 22, alongside its sister product, the le Blanc de Chanel Multi-Use Illuminating Base.  Initial thoughts are that the foundation is all kinds of aces, but trialling it with a cold has meant that I’ve […]

LipsNspritz of the Week 17 January 2016

I spent this week wearing some of the “big hitters” in my collection, and thoroughly enjoyed it!  I began the week with Chanel No19 and Max Factor Marilyn Monroe Collection Ruby Red, and enjoyed the grown-up sophistication (something I’m sorely lacking in naturally) of bitter greenness and aldehydes. Tuesday brought brash spice and a gentle hint of the barnyard in Estee Lauder’s Cinnabar, which I […]

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), […]

#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 […]

New Year, Old Me

By Tindara: Happy New Year! If you’re anything like me you will be utterly bored with all the “New Year New Me” nonsense and be wanting to shove anything “detoxing” up the jacksie with a rolling pin. At least, I think that’s what they’re recommending; I tend to switch off after someone mentions a detox. Instead, I’ve decided to do the exact opposite and track […]

How To Make Your Manicure Last Longer with a Sandwich

There is very little worse – from a beauty bloggers point of view – than a nail varnish that lasts around 30 seconds on the nails.  It’s heartbreaking to discover that thebeautiful shade you’ve just splashed out on has all the lasting power of a soap bubble.  Especially if it’s an £18 soap bubble … Anyway, there is help, and you can make those ephemeral […]

Chanel Rouge Allure: Inimitable, Coromandel and Passion

   Very little gets my heart racing like a red lipstick. When three red lipsticks turn up on the same day, well, that’s an event my friends.  I was delighted to hear that Chanel are re-launching their Rouge Allure range, to go alongside the successful Rouge Coco lipsticks.  Whilst I like (and own about six) of the Coco’s, I do prefer something more pigmented, and […]

Chanel Dragon Rouge Allure Laque

So, following on from my posts about Bare Minerals Upper Class Red, and Beaute Weightless Lip Creme in Masochist last week, I thought I’d show you what is considered to be the uber-red liquid lipstick, and that is Dragon, by Chanel. A classic red, both deep and bloody, and lightly glimmering with gold, this is an undoubtedly gorgeous lip colour.  Sadly, I don’t like it […]

Chanel Ombre Essentielle – 417 Beige Lame

I admit, I wasn’t all that taken with the Chanel Christmas collection this year, it just didn’t speak to me.  But, I did have to pick up this eyeshadow single, when I was in Debenhams recently. Packaged with Chanel’s usual attention to detail, the eyeshadow single comes in a little velvet pouch: So, what colour is it?  Well, for all of you who think I […]
