LipsNspritz 13 December 2015

I really enjoyed this week’s #LipsNspritz, thanks to making a stupendous discovery about Shalimar that I’ve always missed before.  Sometimes having a “before” nose and an “after” nose thanks to my anosmia and my parosmia has it’s blessings!  Anyway, more about that when I get to the Thursday part of today’s post. Monday was Aesop Marrakech Intense with Lanolips Apples.  I love the peppery-spicy rose […]

Skincare of the Week – 13 December 2015

Not a hugely exciting week skincare-wise, admittedly – I’m still ill and still look like death warmed up (if death was into the fourth week of a cough that makes them puke at regular intervals, that is) – but I did get my Caroline Hirons Skincare box this week, so from Tuesday onwards you can see the Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum, and the Dr Dennis […]

Clinique Deep Comfort Body Oil

  First things first; I don’t have dry skin. Secondly, I don’t use body lotion, as a rule.  These two facts may be related.  I do, however, occasionally get dry shins in winter.  I wear trousers a lot, don’t wear a full-length coat for fear of looking like a hobbit, and so my shins, protected only by my trousers and the tights I usually wear […]

Skincare of the Week 06.12.15

Having sensitive skin whilst the seasons are changing can be awkward, certainly I find that I have to be extra careful with the active ingredients in skincare when the weather is at its least predictable.  Still being ill with a cough really isn’t helping, either. My skin has been on the verge of being really reactive this week (I can usually tell as tiny bumps […]

Skincare of the week 29.11.15

I’ve been ill for a fortnight now – why there weren’t any posts on the blog last week, sorry! And this is the skincare I’ve been using to help myself look approximately normal again.  It’s not working, I still look like death warmed up, but at least my skin isn’t blotchy and flaking.  For now … Monday brought Biologique Recherche Lait, with PixiBeauty Glow Tonic, […]

LipsNspritz 15 November 2015

I was ill on Wednesday, and yesterday (the day after the Paris terrorist attacks), rightly or wrongly, it simply didn’t feel appropriate to celebrate lipstick and perfume on Instagram, so a shortened #LipsNspritz this week.  Monday brought Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipstick in Walk of Shame wjhich is a lovely neutral berried-rose shade (seriously difficult to describe this one, it’s not red, and it’s not […]

Skincare of the Week 15th November 2015

This was a week of two halves, pre-facial (Monday and Tuesday) and post-facial (Weds-Friday).  Monday and Tuesday were pretty normal routines for me, I’d had a bit of an itchy face over the weekend, so broke out some bits and pieces from my “SOS” kit – and more about my sensitive skin routine in detail soon, btw – from Darphin and Clarins to soothe, but […]

Clinique Days of the Week Lipstick Set

To say I have no need for a Day of the Week lipstick set would be a mild understatement – I probably have enough lipsticks here for a Days of the Year lipstick set, if not eighteen months – but nonetheless when this turned up last week I laughed.  It’s great. Containing seven not-quite-full-size, but also not-quite-miniature lipsticks, one (you might have guessed) for each […]

Skincare of the Week 8th November 2015

A bit of a mixed bag this week, skincare wise.  Looking at the pictures all in one place kind of makes it clear that I have certain patterns in product usage – Pixi Glow Tonic, for example, I tend to use for two days then swap to Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Toner.  The one product I’ve used consistently this week has been Medik8 Red Alert Serum, […]

Skincare of the week: 31/10/2015

A (slightly) different format for Skincare of the Week this week … Also, I’ve decided to introduce a little Product of the Week award too!  This week was busy and stressful, and coupled with a bout of insomnia, it wasn’t really fun.  I did have a good facial this week at the Askinology Facial Bar in Leadenhall Market, which is where I discovered Medik8 Red […]

Clinique Aromatics in White Candle

I hoard my Clinique Aromatics Candles.  They don’t come out every year, and I always like to have one around, because Clinique Aromatics Elixir is one of my favourite perfumes ever.  EVER.  I have a couple of the originals around at the moment, and I’m saving them for when winter really, really sets in.   You can imagine how happy I was when I found […]

Skincare of the Week 25/10/15

 It has been a long and busy week here at Get Lippie, and my lifestyle has shown a bit in my skincare choices, I’ve swapped to a more hydrating routine, and I’ve slipped a few new products in too.  I’ll be concentrating on some night-time routines this week.  More after the jump. Early on in the week, my skin was still a bit congested, so […]
