Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette

 Not so much a review this as just a deep sigh of: “IT IS SO PRETTY, I CAN NEVER MAR ITS FABULOUS BEAUTIFULOSITY BY ACTUALLY  USING IT”, the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette is released online now and costs £43. Just look at that damned bejewelled cover.  LOOK AT IT. Oh, and the eyeshadows are quite pretty too: Arranged beautifully in ombre-d colour groups, there’s […]

Elizabeth Arden Sunkissed Pearls Cream Eye Shadow Stylos

Now, if you had asked me recently what my favourite cream eyeshadow stick/wand/pencil/crayon/whatever was, I’d have answered the Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks I featured yesterday, but I was incredibly pleasantly surprised by these limited edition “stylos” from Elizabeth Arden when they arrived a little while ago.  These babies last.  And last, and last … it is safe to say I definitely saved the best for […]

Guerlain Christmas 2014 – L’Ecrin 2 Couleurs in Cygne Noir

And so we reach the Black Swan section of Guerlain Christmas 2014, with the release of the L’Ecrin 2 Couleurs eyeshadow palette in Cygne Noir, and very pretty it is too.  I rarely expect much from the eyeshadow duos from Guerlain (I’ve never bought one, for example), but this one did make me do a little “ooooh” of joy when I opened it: Black and […]

Guerlain Christmas 2014 – Petrouchka Eye and Blush Palette

Inside the rather forbidding oversize lacquered black packaging of the Petrouchka Eye & Blush Palette sits an incredibly pretty compact: Fastened with a red silk bow inspired by the ballerinas who in their turn inspired the scent of Coque D’or, the palette is very pretty indeed.  Again following the red and gold theme of this year’s Guerlain Christmas even the accessories are themed: Inside the […]

Sleek MakeUP Vintage Romance Palette & Antique Blush

Well, I said I needed to try some cheaper makeup … and here I am!  Again, like Illamasqua, Sleek MakeUP isn’t a brand I feature often, as a lot of the collections don’t “speak” to me.  This one, however, very much did.  I don’t get the packaging much, it says “Autumn” rather than “Romance” to me, but the contents are delightful:  The eyeshadow shades are […]

Illamasqua Reflection Palette and Shard Lipstick

I don’t often post about Illamasqua, whilst I love them and a couple of their products are in my daily staples (liquid liner in Abyss, I’m talking about you), sometimes I find them just a little too edgy, not to mention precise for me.  That said, I love the fact that they take risks, and that they feature shades difficult to find elsewhere.  The Sacred […]

Guerlain haven’t done a […]

Tom Ford Pink Haze Cream Color for Eyes

Last summer, Tom Ford introduced Cream Color for eyes in Platinum and Spice, and Platinum very, very quickly became a staple in the Lippie household, it gets used once a week without fail, as it’s simple to use and a very useful staple neutral. I was excited to see that there were two more cream colors released this summer too, the slightly peach-gold of Escapade, […]

Bobbi Brown Lilac Rose Eye Palette, Roza Polish and Lipglosses

It’s been a while since I’ve featured anything from Bobbi Brown, I realise, but the press release for the new Lilac Rose collection was so pretty I couldn’t resist … a reasonable-sized collection, consisting of a new shimmer brick, an eye palette, a polish and several lip colours, I’ve selected my picks of the collection to show you here. First off, the star of the […]

Honeymoon Makeup Bag

I didn’t want to take a huge amount of products with me to Paris last week, so broke out a tiny sampling of tried and trusted favourites, and new bits that needed a good testing, and made do with one – ONE! – lipstick whilst I was there.  I figured, hey, it’s Paris, there’s a Sephora on the doorstep if it all goes wrong! Luckily,  […]
