Urban Decay Vice Palette 4 – first look!

   Okay, it’s not a Christmas collection, but I think any makeup addict would be delighted with this in  their Christmas stocking this year!  The Vice palettes from Urban Decay have long been a cult with beauty bloggers, and I suspect this will be no exception, either.  Inspired by the colours of an oil slick, it’s so pretty! Gloriously detailed on the outside, with iridescent […]

Sleek Christmas Collection 2015

I’m a sucker for a Christmas collection, I am and this is a very pretty one from Sleek this year!  Glittering finishes and beautiful metallics abound including the gorgeous i-lust palette above. Named after famous designers, Margiela and Louis are cream shades and the rest are sparkling powders.  The pigmentation is deep and lush, as you would expect from Sleek, and this is a nice, […]

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 […]

Laura Mercier Caviar Stick in Rose Gold

I’m still on an eye pencil kick I’m afraid, but I’ve saved my absolute favourites for this week.  This is Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick in Rose Gold.  I may be wrong, but I think these were the first “cult” shadow sticks on the blogging circuit, and I’ve always had a soft spot for them. Rose Gold is a lovely easy to wear fleshy shade, perfect […]

Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Eye Pencil in Amethyst Aphrodisiac

I’m on a lazy makeup roll this week, and a bit of a pencil kick too, which brings me to Charlotte Tilbury’s cult range of “colour morphing” pencils, the Colour Chameleon range.  They are gorgeous pencils, but I did find the “colour morphing” claims a little incomprehensible until I figured out that the colours that were “morphing” were your eye colours, not the pencil shades. […]

ByTerry Ombre Blackstar eyeshadow sticks

I mentioned yesterday that my makeup routine takes me around five minutes, and it does.  Some days, I can barely be bothered applying makeup at all, and so a little liquid liner and a bright, bright lipstick is all I do, over a CC cream, or something. On the days when I want a stronger look, I increasingly find myself reaching for eyeshadow sticks, as […]

Hourglass Modernist Palette in Exposure

 Not so much a review this, as basic eyeshadow porn.  Hourglass have recently released their Modernist palettes of five eyeshadow shades pressed into a single pan.  They’re beautiful. Packaging is the basic metallic brown, in a similar size to their multi-powder palettes, but it is inside where the magic happens: A blend of shimmering champagne, satin dark mauve, metallic taupe, satin blackened purple, and a […]

Sleek Eye and Cheek and Precious Metal Highlighting Palettes

 By Tindara This week I’ve been wearing more eyeshadow than usual. I admit that generally my habit is to wack a bit of smudgy liner or chubby eyeshadow stick around my eyes, finish with mascara and some kind of eyebrow pencil and move on to blush and lipstick. I am to lipstick as a problem hoarder is to month old newspapers and dusty odd souvenirs. […]

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 […]

GOSH Spring Summer 2014

By Tindara Greetings Get Lippie-ers! I’m back back back. It’s been tough old game but I’ve been sampling lots of new things recently. Not least the new stuff from the GOSH Spring Summer range. I’ve been a GOSH fan for a while, I think their Velvet Touch eyeliners are brilliant and easily as good as my previous staple MAC Powerpoint at double the price. So, […]

A Week in Eyeshadow

Another week, another week of eyeshadow – here’s what I’ve been wearing this week: Top Row (L-R) Shu Uemura Olive 471 with MakeUpDesignory (MUD) liner in Black Forest Guerlain Coup de Foudre palette with Tom Ford Plum Absolute liner (I’m a little bit in love with this, you might have noticed) Tom Ford Pink Haze Cream Color with Sephora Flirting Game in the crease, and […]

Becca Sunchaser Ultimate Eye Colour Quad

Something a little less bright, but no less pretty, on the blog today.  The summer palette from Becca is the Sunchaser set this year, and it’s a lovely one. So many summer collections are either too orange or contain a bright that is less than useful, so for us who prefer to stay pale year-round (you will never see me write about a home fake-tanning […]
