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 […]

Max Factor Marilyn Monroe Colour Elixir Lipstick Collection

 I love lipstick.  I love Marilyn Monroe, so when the press release for this Max Factor Marilyn Monroe Colour Elixir Collection came in, it was a bit of a no-brainer.  A collection of four reds, inspired by the iconic looks of Marilyn, and selected for every skin-tone, I leapt to take a look at this one! The four shades are Marilyn Ruby Red – a […]

LipsNspritz of the week 10 January 2016

I fell in love this week, and I never expected to! It started on Monday with a brief squirt of Estee Lauder Youth Dew, and it continued later in the week and it ended up with my buying a bottle (or two!) of the matching bath oil, which is divine, by the way, and every home should have a (tiny) bottle. Youth Dew opens surprisingly […]

Max Factor Lipfinity Revisited

Lipfinity was launched by Max Factor in 2000, but there was always something rather … nineties about them, if you ask me.  It was the brown-ness.  They were firmly stuck in that rust rut that I always associate with the late 90’s, where blush, shadow and lipstick were usually the same terracotta shade.  Get Lippie doesn’t really do brown. Especially not like this: She’s so […]

Max Factor Clump Defy Mascara

By Laurin My favourite mascara ever is any mascara I’ve been using for about six weeks. The purchase of a new make-up item brings with it a flutter of excitement in my stomach, and yet my heart never fails to sink when I open a new tube of mascara. Why? Because I know I’m about to spend five god-damned minutes that I don’t even have […]

Summery Coral Lipsticks from Clinique, Max Factor and Sisley

It’s summer – allegedly – and I normally swap to more coral-shades in summer.  Whilst the sun hasn’t really blessed us much this year, we do have some top lipstick shades around at the moment.  I picked up three at random, and thought you might like to see them: So, we have Clinique Runway Coral, Max Factor Bewitching Coral, and Sisley Sheer Peach, or, in […]

Lipstick Of The (Next) Week

Something a bit different this week (for I wore only one lipstick last week (Tom Ford Indian Rose, seeing as you didn’t ask, and I love it), so I’m showing you the lipsticks I’m going to be wearing this week.  A little sneaky preview, if you will. Max Factor have set a  bunch of beauty bloggers a lipstick challenge: to wear seven shades of lipstick […]

Max Factor Vs All For Eve: A Nail File Challenge

Crystal nail files are everywhere at the moment, when I had a pedicure at The Chapel recently, BeautyMaze used a Leighton Denny crystal file on my tootsies, and I was astonished at how smooth it was, and how little it set my teeth on edge when she filed my toenails, which is always the worst part of any pedicure for me.  Well, usually. As a  […]

I recently put out a call on my blog for volunteers for makeovers, and the lovely Rebecca from Le Salon de Beaute had volunteered almost before I’d finished writing the post!  Take a look at her blog if you get a chance, it’s a lovely one, and I’m a big fan. Anyway, this is Rebecca refusing to give me her best “Prisoner Cell Block H” […]
