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 […]

The Reluctant Lippie. Part Two: Pinks

   By Laurin A few of the more pressing topics that have been on my mind this week include:   Why do my jeans smell like barnyard dust even though I washed them two days ago? Have my knickers been on inside-out all day? (Turns out yes, yes they have.) Oh hey, is that the guy I dated briefly last year who was in the open […]

Nars – The Multiple G-Spot

Okay, so last week I talked about how I love my muff, and this week I’m about to tell you all about my G-Spot. I’m just too good to you people, I really am.  Fear not though,  I shan’t be telling you about my bowels any time soon, I promise. However, I’m slowly – very slowly – becoming addicted to a bit of NARS. I […]

Guest Post – NARS Orgasm Nail Polish

I’m utterly delighted that my first guest blogger of my holiday is the wonderful Helen from Just Nice Things, not only does she have “nails of iron“, she was one of my blogging inspirations when I first started Get Lippie, and I’m very happy that she’s become one of my best friends in the blogging world and in real life, too.  She’s responsible for many […]

NARS 2011 – Dogon Eyeshadow Duo

I was lucky enough to be invited along to the NARS Summer preview this week, and, aside from falling deeply in love with the fall collection (which I forgot to take pictures of, because I’m an idiot), I also feel in love with the new eyeshadow duo in Dogon.  There are two duo’s in the summer range (the other has a baby blue/gold combination) alongside […]

Random Face of the Day – Diorskin Nude Foundation Test

Apologies for the fact that I’m fully dressed here, random Googlers! I’ve been trialling Diorskin Nude foundation for about a week now, and I don’t really have any hard and fast thoughts about it – yet – but I thought you might like to see how it photographs. Alongside the Nudeskin, I’m wearing: Sue Devitt eyeshadow in Lonely Splendour (a lovely taupe),  Illamsaqua  Precison Ink […]

Reader Request – Highlighters

When I wrote this post about the YSL Palette Y-Mail highlighter a few weeks ago, one of my lovely readers, Renata asked about my favourite highlighters, and what I’d recommend.  Well, my first thought, I have to admit was “I don’t have many highlighters, I’ll never get a full post out of that!”.  I was wrong.  A quick scout around my makeup collections (yes, I […]

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: Kerry

After a bit of last minute confusion with one of my other volunteers, the lovely Kerry stepped in to have a makeover, and I’m glad she did, as this is one of my favourites! Meet Kerry: Kerry is really very pretty already, with enormous green eyes.  Sometimes Kerry thinks she looks a bit young (never an issue as far as I’m concerned!) so was looking […]

NARS Skorpios and Pop Life Pencils

Mainly thanks to the gorgeous Lipstick Rules  I bought NARS Pop Life Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Liberty yesterday, and while I was there I very graciously allowed the Sales Assistant to convince me to hand over some hard earned cash for the Skorpios Soft Touch Shadow Pencil too … just kidding, the sales assistant was adorable, and very sweetly left me to my own […]
