LipsNspritz of the … er … Fortnight.

I hate being ill, and I really hate being ill to the extent that it interferes with my posting schedule.  Nonetheless, here’s a double-dose (whether you wanted it or not, frankly) of my weekly diary of lipstick and perfume-wearing.  The above pic is from the week ending 22/11/15. Monday was Etat Libre d’Orange Like This, alongside Chantecaille Lip Chic in Wild Rose.  Like This is […]

Fenwicks Global Beauty Icons

I love Fenwick of Bond Street, truly I do. It’s clean, it’s quiet, it’s sensibly laid out, the staff are lovely, and there’s a frankly astonishing range of brands there now.  I was invited back to their store last week to celebrate both the relaunch of their newly redesigned beauty hall, and the launch of their #FenwickBeautyIcons and #GlobalBeautyIcons campaigns, and, I admit, it was […]

Skincare of the Week – 22 August 2015

Joy abounds in the Get Lippie household whenever a parcel from Zelens shows up, and this week I was delighted that the two newest serums in the range appeared on my doorstep.  I’ll be giving Zelens Intense Defence a good going over in the next few weeks, so expect my skincare routines to get a little … visually undistinguishable … for a while.  This was […]

Chantecaille Autumn/Winter 2015 – Protect the Wolves Collection

Every August, Chantecaille release their autumn charity collection and this year it is wolf-themed.  5% of the proceeds of each “Protect the Wolf” collection product will be donated to the Northwest Conservation group.  I love the animal palettes, and this years collection is a nice one: A nude lip, a smokey eye palette and a peachy blush, it’s bang on trend for a winter palette […]

Chantecaille Autumn Winter 2014: 15th Anniversary Palette

By Get Lippie You have to have a heart of stone (or at least a deep, deep hatred of taupe, you sick puppy) to be able to resist the annual Chantecaille Charity Palettes.  Usually items of huge beauty devoted to a single animal cause, tigers, turtles, butterflies and such, it can be difficult to bring yourself to use them.  Out next month, the Chantecaille 15th […]

8th July 2013


I don’t finish many products in all honesty, and of those that I do finish, I don’t often repurchase.  These three products have been through the wringer and then some, and I have backups (multiples in some cases!) of all of them. Hydraluron I’ll be honest, when I was first using this, I wasn’t much impressed.  I’d seen raves – LOTS of raves – about […]

Five basics every makeup bag should have

I get asked, quite regularly, what makeup products every makeup bag should contain, and I always find it a difficult question to answer (I don’t really carry a makeup bag round with me, and, when I do, it mainly contains lip products … the name of this blog didn’t come around by accident, you know) but, in response to a particularly heartfelt plea from MummyBarrow, […]

Chantecaille Lipgloss: Nectar, Guava, Taffy

Someone made me an absurdly generous gift recently, and, as I’m obsessed with Chantecaille lip products at the moment, I was delighted to receive these little pots of pretty.  I have three shades: Like the Chantecaille Lip Chics, these are sheer, and packed with moisturising ingredients.  I don’t find them at all drying, and they’re a pleasure to wear, as they fuse the lip conditioning […]

Chantecaille Lip Chics -Tea Rose, China Rose, Bourbon Rose

The Chantecaille Lip Chic formulation is one of my all time favourites.  Sheer – like so many of the new lipstick collections have been this year – but hugely moisturising, extremely balm-like, and just pigmented enough to give you a wearable and polished look.  I love them, and the funky pewter packaging, and own three, all from the rose shades. Here they are, Tea Rose, […]

Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara

Okay, the original post I had scheduled for today appears to have gone walkabout, so I’m just going to give a quick mention of this new mascara from Chantecaille that I’m dying to get my hands on when it’s released next week, and that is Chantecaille Faux Cils Longest Lash Mascara. Why do I want to try it?  Well, mainly because it promises 25% longer lashes in two […]

Chantecaille Turtles Palette – Swatches

I saw this just after Christmas in some promo pics, and I have to admit, I fell in love a little bit.  Chantecaille has always been a brand I’ve admired, but have never really seen what all the fuss is about previously, but this palette might just be the one to change my mind.  It’s beautiful. A shimmering sand shade, a glimmering brown, a multi-tonal […]

Chantecaille Turtles Palette

Oh my, how pretty is this? I spent several years living in Greece, and several nights whilst there were spent camping out under the stars and watching turtles lay their eggs on some of the beaches there, so this will be a lovely reminder of my days as a rep. I love the fact that some of the whopping cost of these palettes (these retail […]
