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 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 […]

Monday was Aesop Marrakech Intense with Lanolips Apples.  I love the peppery-spicy rose […]

Givenchy Parad’eyes

Yes, they really are called that.  Oh well.  These are Givenchy’s latest liquid eyeliners, and I have to admit that they are very, very, very pretty: The long top forms the handle, and the smaller bottom portion contains the liner. I bought two recently, the blue one you can see above, and the nude shade.  I know, nude eyeliner, sounds crazy!   Take a closer look […]

Great Customer Service?

Let’s face it, sometimes beauty counters aren’t places where we can particularly expect good customer service, are they?  From the pushy-pushy OFLs (Orange-Faced Ladies), to the OFLs who treat you like a criminal for daring to even look at their products, to the OFLs who just want to “warm you up a little”,  and then there are the ones who just ignore you and chat […]
