Skincare of the Week 13.09.15

Last Sunday was a very stressful day, so I ended up giving myself a mini-facial in the middle of the day.  Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel was soothing with its rosy softness, then I slathered myself in Aveda Intensive Hydrating Mask for the rest of the day.  I love this stuff, oil-free, it is instantly cooling and soothing (I keep mine in the fridge.  That reminds […]

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 […]

Clarins Autumn 2015 – First Look

Not so much in the way of review, but just my first thoughts on the new makeup collection from Clarins this autumn: It’s a really beautiful collection, warm lip colours, cool smokey eye colours, and very strong brows.  There’s the Pretty Day five colour eye palette (£33),  two shades of the Ombre Matte eye powders ( 07 Carbon and 08 Heather £19 each, a pretty […]

Clarins Extra-Firming Eye Wrinkle Smoothing Cream Review

I struggle a great deal with eyecreams, rarely finding one that the sensitive skin around my eyes can tolerate. As a result over the last few years, I’ve very rarely used one.  Up until the last year or so this hasn’t really been a problem, but I have been noticing dehydration lines more often these days, which is kind of depressing. At an event a […]

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 […]

Lipsticks of the Week: Soft Reds

   It’s been a red kind of week, but I couldn’t face my usual bright “in your face” kind of shades, so softer, gentler, easier-wearing kinds of reds (and a pink) have dominated my look this week: From left to right we have: Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in Red Velvet – I’ve largely ignored the Revlon Lip Butter hype, as the colours have all been […]

Clarins Instant Smooth Crystal Lip Balm

Summer lip balms in a range of colours? Check. The usual suspect shades? You know, pink, green, orange and blue?  Check. Hang on, green and blue lip balms?  From Clarins?  I don’t think we’re in Kansas any more … And yet: They’re really, really, really gorgeous.  They’re also not really green and blue sadly, but this makes them not impossible to wear, as the surprisingly […]

Wedding Preparation – My Current Skincare Regime

Spending a lot of time worrying about a) my skin, b) breaking my nails, and c) my wedding perfume at the moment.  The wedding is eleven days away now (seriously, where the hell has the year since we got engaged gone?), and I thought I’d share some of my routines with you. Nails and perfume will come later, but for today, I’m focusing on skincare. All […]

Clarins Rouge Eclat Age Defying Lipstick Nude Rose & Pink Berry

It’s a tough gig having a blog named after lipstick you know … all those lipsticks and only one face to apply them to.  I mean, I’ve tried getting MrLippie to help out wearing all the stuff I don’t have time for, but well, it’s just not the same … Anyhoo,  These turned up last week, and they’re rather nice.  A new formula from Clarins, […]

Current Skincare Routine

Well, it’s two routines really, one for morning and one for evening!  Winter, even a mild winter such as the one we’ve just had can be hard on my temperamental combination oil-dehydrated skin, so the main thing I add to my routines (AM and PM) is to add an oil. So, in the evenings, I’ll do a deep cleanse with Nude Cleansing Oil, lots of […]

Back to Basics – Clarins Ever Matte Foundation

Another new foundation this month is Clarins Ever Matte, which I’ve had for a couple of weeks and have been mulling over on your behalf for a while. Packaging A squared-off squeezy tube, perfect for carting around with you.  I like the classy gold top, too. Formula  A medium-thick liquid, quite low in silicones, this feels velvety on the fingers, and I find it easy […]
