Deborah Lippmann and Instagram

Did you know Get Lippie has an Instagram account? You can find us on there as Get_Lippie, you can see odd snippets of launch events, meals, stupidity, and mostly, makeup … for example, behold the glory that is Deborah Lippmann’s Ruby Red Slippers: Someone described it as looking like I’d just ripped a man’s heart out in Temple of Doom, and, as I can’t think […]

Illamasqua Glamore Collection – Lips and Tips

By Laurin I don’t remember it myself, but my birth certificate tells me I entered this world in 1978. That makes me, Laurin Emily Taylor, 35 ½.  My mental age on the other hand clocks in somewhere around 80. I like early nights and stern disapproval and I’m counting the days until my physical age (and bank balance) allows me to genuinely rock a Chanel […]

Selena Gomez Collection from Nicole by OPI

I don’t even know who Selena Gomez is, aside from some kind of Disney poppet, so I have no idea what I was expecting from this collection.  Certainly what I was expecting was a collection of uber-brights! From left to right here we have: Love Song, Spring Break, Pretty in Plum and Hit The Lights.  Love Song is a saturated lilac with a white-ish base.  […]

Sally Hansen Autumn Collections

This collection doesn’t scream autumn to me, but it’s an unusual collection of lovely shades and some fashionably “ugly” shades …  It’s actually a couple of collaborations in conjunction with several fashion designers, but, as I am a bad, bad, blogger, I have to admit that I care more about the colours than the designers involved.  I am so NOT fashion, dahlinks.  From left to […]

Comparison: Black Sugar by Tom Ford, Sulfurous by Guerlain and Facet by Illamasqua

I was picking out my favourite polishes for autumn, and when I had  made my list, I realised that Black Sugar by Tom Ford, Sulfurous by Guerlain, and Illamasqua’s Facet are quite similar, so I thought a comparison might be in order.  When I got the bottles together, I realised that they were quite different, but possibly not *that* different.   First up, Bottle impressions: […]

YSL Babydoll Collection – Lips, Nails and Mascara

I have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting for this collection to launch!  I first saw it way back in February, and I’ve used the mascara non-stop since …  A mini-collection, consisting of glossy lip stain, mascara, nail varnish, and several eyeliner shades, I had to pick up the lip stain and nail varnish as soon as it launched last week, and I also picked […]

Bobbi Brown Lilac Rose Eye Palette, Roza Polish and Lipglosses

It’s been a while since I’ve featured anything from Bobbi Brown, I realise, but the press release for the new Lilac Rose collection was so pretty I couldn’t resist … a reasonable-sized collection, consisting of a new shimmer brick, an eye palette, a polish and several lip colours, I’ve selected my picks of the collection to show you here. First off, the star of the […]

Lippie’s Lust List #1 Estee Lauder Mad Men Collection

It’s not often a collection makes my heart go pitty-pat these days (jaded, Moi?) but this retro-themed collection from Estee Lauder might just have managed it.  The blush compact and lipstick in particular have got my name all over them, and hey!  Mad Men.  Gotta love it.  Think this will be one of the most collectible make up sets in a long time … The […]
