Jo Malone London Launch Basil and Neroli Fragrance

I was lucky enough to be invited along to the launch of Jo Malone London Basil and Neroli fragrance earlier this year,  and I’m very glad I did go, because this little bottle of sunshine hasn’t left my handbag since.  I’m a huge fan of Lime, Basil and Mandarin, the brands “signature” fragrance and I was delighted when I discovered that Jo Malone London were […]

Finishing Touches: LipsNspritz of the Week 8th July 2016

It’s been a mixed bag, fragrance-wise this week.  It’s ostensibly summer, but I can’t imagine anything less summery than this dark and dank July we’re having so far!  Like with the weather, my perfume choices have been a bit all over the place, too. Monday brought Tangerine Vert from Miller Harris, a herbal-fresh and zingy citrus that was perfect for blasting away those dreadful Monday […]

LipsNSpritz of the Week March 06 2016

 This week was an incredibly busy one – I’m an accountant by day, and I’m currently preparing for year end, plus preparing to move house, at the same time, because I am an idiot), so LipsNspritz took an accidental back seat this week.  That said, I did manage to wear some lovely ones: Monday was a Jo Malone London Vetiver Cologne day.  My (recovering!) parosmia […]

LipsNspritz of the week 10 January 2016

I fell in love this week, and I never expected to! It started on Monday with a brief squirt of Estee Lauder Youth Dew, and it continued later in the week and it ended up with my buying a bottle (or two!) of the matching bath oil, which is divine, by the way, and every home should have a (tiny) bottle. Youth Dew opens surprisingly […]

LipsNspritz of the Week 20.12.15

Well, unlike last week, there were no hugely stunning nasal revelations, alas, but there was still a lot to love about LipsNspritz this time around, and one nice discovery, which is good.  If you’re wondering what LipsNspritz actually is, it’s my way of smelling something different every day in an attempt to cure my parosmia, and a way to force myself to actually wear ALL […]

LipsNspritz of the Fortnight, Pt II

 This week, I basically took a “lucky dip” approach to my perfume and lipstick choices.  After three months and nearly 80 lipstick and perfume pictures, I realise I’m probably something like a quarter of the way through my fragrance collection, and possibly, maybe, a tenth (perhaps?) of the way through my lipsticks.  There’s a few months of this to go, yet, I think! Monday was […]

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 […]

Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy Sculpting Lipstick – Impassioned, Rebellious Rose and Dominant.

And we’re back to lipsticks! I’m genuinely not sure why these haven’t been on the blog before now, but the Estee Lauder Pure Colour Envy Sculpting Lipsticks are incredibly beautiful.  They feature intense, opaque colours, with a gorgeous feather-light texture, a hydrating formula, and a glossy long-lasting finish.  But anyway, they’re here now, and they’re beautiful.  Did I mention that? From left to right here […]

How to do: Foundation

By Luke Oh sweet mother of god there are a lot of base products out there aren’t there? Foundations, tinted moisturisers, BB creams, CC creams, and everything in between. What are they, and what is best for you? Where on earth do you start? Well there are a whole host of bases available, and all are good for different things, like, different times of year, […]

Lipsticks of the Week

By Tindara Well I don’t know about you, but I think it’s about time for another Lipsticks of the Week. This week, it’s a summer mixed bag, pinks and corals and you guessed it, a tomato red. I’ve also been on a spending spree and bought a few new lovely lippies that I feel like raving about. Last time, I mentioned my favourite go-to deep […]

Estee Lauder Double Wear All-Day Glow

By Get Lippie The BB cream craze (not to mention the CC/DD..ZZ/whatever creams) has largely passed Get Lippie by, to be honest.  After the first wave of original Korean BB creams hit the blogs, a bunch of brands leapt onto rebranding what had been rather lacklustre tinted moisturisers as BB creams, and I got totally fed up of the hyperbole, so I’ve been ignoring them. […]

Estee Lauder Amber Mystique Eau de Parfum

  Did you know Estee Lauder had a couple of unisex fragrances these days?  No?  Me neither.  But they do.  In 2011 they released Wood Mystique, which has been generally well received by those in the know, and this year, they’re following it up with Amber Mystique, which is currently exclusively available in Harrods in the UK. Both Wood and Amber Mystique are quite firmly […]
