Clarins Instant Light Blush Vitamin Pink and Coral Tonic

   I spotted these in the Garden Pharmacy in Covent Garden a few weeks ago, and I was instantly smitten.  I’m on a bit of a blush kick at the moment, and these are pretty different offering from a brand like Clarins, so I couldn’t wait to give them a try. Packaged in cute nail-varnish like bottles, and brought out as part of the new […]

Lipstick of the Week – Clarins Gloss Prodige

Well, I said last week that I was planning on wearing just one brand over the next seven days, and, I during a delightful afternoon tea with the Clarins PR, I was presented with these, so it seemed like perfect timing!  These glosses are part of the new Spring collection from Clarins, which is out on counters at the moment.  Eight shades have been released, […]

Looking forward to 2011? Guerlain, Lauder, Dior, Lancome and Clarins are …

Nope, haven’t gone quite mad – yet – but I found these pics on my iphone today and thought I’d show you some of the things you’ll be able to see on Get Lippie coming up in the next couple of months … Here you can see the spring/summer releases from both Dior and Guerlain (Dior on the left, Guerlain on the right).  I’m loving […]

Clarins Barocco Winter Collection 2010

I saw this collection on British Beauty blogger last month and thought it was Oh So Pretty! I still don’t know when it’s released (I’m assuming September-time, but if I get any more information, I’ll let you know), and I’ve been pretty desperate to get my hands on it ever since laying eyes on it!  It is so exquisitely packaged, and the black shadows and […]

Review Clarins Instant Smooth Compact Highlighter.

Oh, it pains me to write this one, really it does. I bought, and reviewed most of the Clarins Instant Sunlight summer collection a couple of months ago, but I’ve been hanging back from covering this one, as I wasn’t sure what to say about it.  Then I scratched my head and had a really good think about what I wanted to say, and this […]

Clarins Instant Sunlight Applied (FotD)

It’s okay, I got rid of the quiff, look! Now, I’m sure you’re all as sick of the sight of my face as I am right now, so this’ll be the last FoTD for a few days, I promise.  I created a slightly more traditional take on a smokey eye with this one – the colours were a fair bit darker in the flesh than […]

Clarins Instant Sunlight Quad

I popped into Debenhams last week for some shampoo, and I got myself distracted by some of the new summer collections that have come out.  Clarins in particular, really caught my eye, and I really liked the look of this eyeshadow palette: I’m always a sucker for a slinky silver compact – not entirely convinced about the suedette pochette, to be honest – but the […]

Makeover: Helen

Ah … back in the makeover swing of things after the Christmas break, it’s nice to have them back! Please welcome Helen, here she is giving it her best “Prisoner Cell Block H” pose: Helen wanted a very simple, daytime look that she could easily replicate herself, that would make her look more “polished”.  We picked some nice, neutral shades to suit her skin-tone, and […]

Makeover: Kerry

After a bit of last minute confusion with one of my other volunteers, the lovely Kerry stepped in to have a makeover, and I’m glad she did, as this is one of my favourites! Meet Kerry: Kerry is really very pretty already, with enormous green eyes.  Sometimes Kerry thinks she looks a bit young (never an issue as far as I’m concerned!) so was looking […]

Review – Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara

I love mascara.  Specifically, I love Lancome Hypnose, and Lancome Hypnose Drama (though the brush on that one drives me a bit bonkers, if I’m being really honest), I’ve tried other mascaras, but for me, nothing really comes close. Clarins recently ran a giveaway on their Facebook page, and I was lucky enough to win a sample sized tube, and, I have to say, it’s […]

NARS Skorpios and Pop Life Pencils

Mainly thanks to the gorgeous Lipstick Rules  I bought NARS Pop Life Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Liberty yesterday, and while I was there I very graciously allowed the Sales Assistant to convince me to hand over some hard earned cash for the Skorpios Soft Touch Shadow Pencil too … just kidding, the sales assistant was adorable, and very sweetly left me to my own […]
