LipsNspritz of the Week 31 January 2016

 So, I take all my LipsNspritz pictures in one batch on a Saturday afternoon, then wear them throughout the week, taking different pictures of stuff on a daily basis is far too much like hard work for me!  I assure you I do wear them though.  LipsNspritz is my attempt both to wear my entire perfume and lipstick collection, and to help my nose “relearn” […]

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 13 December 2015

I really enjoyed this week’s #LipsNspritz, thanks to making a stupendous discovery about Shalimar that I’ve always missed before.  Sometimes having a “before” nose and an “after” nose thanks to my anosmia and my parosmia has it’s blessings!  Anyway, more about that when I get to the Thursday part of today’s post. Monday was Aesop Marrakech Intense with Lanolips Apples.  I love the peppery-spicy rose […]

LipsNspritz 31.10.15

   It was definitely a week of two halves, lipstick-wise at least! Bright reds, by Guerlain (Rouge Parade), Burberry (Military Red) and Art Deco (Dita Von Teese collection) were the order of the day, particularly on Wednesday, when I felt a real need for power dressing, which called for a hugely long-lasting red (as the Art Deco is), and when paired with Donna Karan Signature […]

Fenwicks Global Beauty Icons

I love Fenwick of Bond Street, truly I do. It’s clean, it’s quiet, it’s sensibly laid out, the staff are lovely, and there’s a frankly astonishing range of brands there now.  I was invited back to their store last week to celebrate both the relaunch of their newly redesigned beauty hall, and the launch of their #FenwickBeautyIcons and #GlobalBeautyIcons campaigns, and, I admit, it was […]

Lipstick Queen Seven Deadly Sins Collection

Such plans I had for the blog in June/early July, but life got in the way, and a holiday plus starting a new job, plus a bunch of weekend plans that had been in place made blogging a logistical impossibility … anyway, I’m back now, and I’m armed with a new camera!  Anyhoo, back before all hell broke loose I attended the marvellous launch of […]

Lipstick Queen – Bete Noire Collection

I always love starting off the new year with a new collection from Lipstick Queen, and luckily the collections from Poppy King rarely disappoint.  When I found out there was a new “dark” collection coming, my little heart went pitty-pat, for Saint Wine is one of my all-time favourite lipsticks of all time, as regular readers might remember … Housed in a pretty purple square, […]

Lipstick Queen Silver Screen Collection

    Lipstick Queen – long one of Get Lippie’s favourite lipstick brands – has brought out a companion collection to the gorgeous Velvet Rope collection they brought out last year.  Velvet Rope was a capsule collection of feather-light matte shades in beautiful deco-style packaging.     In the same (albeit silver this time) beautifully heavy packaging, Silver Screen is a collection of highly-pigmented glossy […]

Lipsticks of the Week

  Ah, Lipstick of the week, it’s been a while, eh?  I assure you, I’ve been wearing just as much lipstick as always, but there’s been no sunlight for pictures for ages!  With the change in the weather recently, autumnal berries and plums have been calling out to me this week, so this is what I’ve been wearing: Boots No7 Soft Ruby Lipstick Queen Saint […]

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 […]

Lipstick Queen Launches Velvet Rope Collection

I love a good lipstick launch, me.  And, when the lipstick launched is a good lipstick, then so much the better, frankly. I’m a fan of the Lipstick Queen range (some long term readers might have noticed), and, barring the occasional WTF moment (Jean Queen, invented to tone with your denim, I’m looking at you), the standard of launches is usually extremely high, so I […]

Lipsticks of the Week: Soft Reds

   It’s been a red kind of week, but I couldn’t face my usual bright “in your face” kind of shades, so softer, gentler, easier-wearing kinds of reds (and a pink) have dominated my look this week: From left to right we have: Revlon Colourburst Lip Butter in Red Velvet – I’ve largely ignored the Revlon Lip Butter hype, as the colours have all been […]
