L’Oreal Steampod Brazil Fantasy Edition

I live in a little sport-free bubble, and I love it very much, but I’m sheltered to the extent that when a bunch of Brazil-themed beauty products started arriving recently, I was a little confused.  Then they launched Brazil-themed M&Ms, and my thought process went: “Hey there official food of athletes around the world! Man, is it the Olympics already? Aren’t they in South America […]

L’Oreal Steampod Review

I don’t actually remember the last time I straightened my hair on a regular basis.  There was a time when my (naturally) curly hair was kept such a secret that it frequently came as a huge surprise to people that my hair was anything more than just slightly bouncy. I went through straighteners like no one’s business!  For the last year or so though, I’ve […]

L’Oreal Hair Expertise EverPure Colour Care and Smoothing Hair Care

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I didn’t want to love this range.  I lack the words.  I have a bathroom full – FULL – of expensive shampoos and conditioners, and the last thing I wanted to fall in love with was some £5.99 shampoo and conditioner from L’Oreal. But I have.  So there.  Supposedly a “no suphate” range (but I noticed […]

Makeover: Sarah C – The Return

It’s Sunday, and, as always, that means it’s a makeover day Chez Lippie. Remember Sarah C? She had a pretty dramatic Theda Bara-style makeover last time, but she also wanted to learn how to use bright colours in a simple, and  subtle way.  We had a look through my entire eye-shadow collection – which took quite some time – and Sarah decided on MAC’s Humid, […]

Lip of the Day – Studio Secrets 411

Today, I wore my new L’Oreal Studio Secrets 411 lipstick.  It’s a lightly pink “nude” shade, and I bought it as part of my ongoing quest to find the perfect nude lipstick.  What I want is a lipstick that’ll make it not look too obvious that I’m wearing it, yet give me a polished look. Here’s how it looked on: L’Oreal have arranged their Studio […]

Lipstick haul

Last week, I may have gone a bit crazy buying lipsticks … I really shouldn’t buy any lipsticks whatsoever, the collection I have already numbers three figures as it is.  I went through my handbag the other day and realised there were 12 lip products in there: 8 lipsticks (including the five you see below), three glosses and a balm.  I guess you could say […]

Holdover Makeover and Foundation Review

Okay, it’s a couple of days late, I apologise, but here’s the latest pics of the FotW I promised you on Thursday. First of all, the obligatory shot of me without makeup. I’m shiny, and my pores are ENORMOUS: It is also 6.30 in the morning, hence the simplicity of this make up, and my dopey expression. First things first, this complexion needs foundation, and […]

Face of the Week

I’m a very lazy person, and i appear to be addicted to routine at the moment, so whatever makeup I find myself wearing on a Monday is what I tend to find myself wearing for the next few days! Here’s the products I’ve been wearing this week, it’s very plain and simple, but quick, and pretty. Organic Surge Blissful Daily Moisturiser (which I’m trialling for a […]
