LipsNspritz of the Week 17 January 2016

I spent this week wearing some of the “big hitters” in my collection, and thoroughly enjoyed it!  I began the week with Chanel No19 and Max Factor Marilyn Monroe Collection Ruby Red, and enjoyed the grown-up sophistication (something I’m sorely lacking in naturally) of bitter greenness and aldehydes. Tuesday brought brash spice and a gentle hint of the barnyard in Estee Lauder’s Cinnabar, which I […]

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 […]

Illamasqua Shard vs Lancome Rose Sulfureuse

  The sharp-eyed amongst you will have noticed that I’ve featured two very similar lipstick shades this week, Illamasqua Shard and Lancome’s Rose Sulfureuse, both shades of plum, they’re both deep and pigmented and cool, I like them both very much.  Typical though, you go and buy a lovely plum lipstick, then attend the launch of yet another beautiful plum lipstick literally minutes later – […]

Lancome Rouge in Love – 379N Rose Sulfureuse

   I’ve been sorting through my lipstick collection a bit recently, trying to find the best colours to “match” my new palette, and I realised that I didn’t have any really deep but still cool purple shades.  I have SO many burgundy and wine shades, in a variety of textures, but I wanted to explore some cooler shades.  I’m short on plums for some reason, […]

Looking forward to 2011? Guerlain, Lauder, Dior, Lancome and Clarins are …

Nope, haven’t gone quite mad – yet – but I found these pics on my iphone today and thought I’d show you some of the things you’ll be able to see on Get Lippie coming up in the next couple of months … Here you can see the spring/summer releases from both Dior and Guerlain (Dior on the left, Guerlain on the right).  I’m loving […]

Review – Lancome Climat

Scouting around trying to find myself a bottle of Cuir de Lancome in Selfridges (I was offered O de Lancome five times, but no matter), I came across this little beauty. First released in 1967, it is described as a floral aldehyde, and was re-released by Lancome a couple of years ago.  I find it beautiful, it’s very feminine – even ladylike – but it’s […]

Lancôme L’Absolou Rouge Creme de Brilliance Lip Swatches

When I last featured the Creme de Brilliance liquid lipsticks, I had a lot of requests for lip swatches, so here they are – apologies for it taking so long, had to wait for sunny times to get the colours right!  They’re swatched in numerical order as per this pic: Please click on either shot to enlarge.  Which are your favourites?

Lancôme L’Absolou Rouge Creme de Brilliance swatches

Surprisingly, considering my utter worship of practically any mascara made my Lancôme, I don’t own a huge amount of their colour cosmetics.  I have no idea why this is, but after their recent Pop Petrol collection, which I thought was really lovely (I ended up buying half of it for Other People, and have none of it for myself!), it’s obviously something I’m going have […]

Review – Lancôme Precious Cells Mascara

I’m a massive fan of Lancôme mascaras, and have been ever since they first introduced the Hypnôse range! I always have one on the go, and one as a back up around. Despite the occasional misfire – Hypnôse Onyx anyone? Seriously I thought that one was innovation purely for innovations sake, it was literally no different to the original formula – they’ve always been my […]

Foundation Week Finale – Liquids

I love liquid foundations, and have amassed a fair collection of them over the years. There are very many different formulations, and with liquid foundations, it can be a case of trial and error getting the right formulation for yourself. There are two main kinds, ones that leave you with a dewy glow, and matte ones – but, of course, there are all kinds of […]

Makeover: Jane C

Another Sunday, and another makeover (or two) today!  Please meet Jane: Jane’s great, and I think she’s one of the most naturally gorgeous people I’ve ever met, so having her volunteer for a makeover was a lovely surprise!  Jane was interested in finding out a simple look suitable for daytime, and trying out a more dramatic look too.  Here’s what we came up with – […]
