Pixi + Caroline Hirons Double Cleanse #PixiPretties Collection

Right. I’ve started this “review”, like, fifteen different ways now, and they were all a complete bag of utter shite.  I’m out of the habit of blogging at the moment, admittedly, and I can’t deny it, but there’s no way for me to write a “proper” review of this anyway. She’d squash me. The truth is that Caroline is a friend of mine, and Pixi […]

Finishing Touches: LipsNspritz of the Week 8th July 2016

It’s been a mixed bag, fragrance-wise this week.  It’s ostensibly summer, but I can’t imagine anything less summery than this dark and dank July we’re having so far!  Like with the weather, my perfume choices have been a bit all over the place, too. Monday brought Tangerine Vert from Miller Harris, a herbal-fresh and zingy citrus that was perfect for blasting away those dreadful Monday […]

Skincare of the Week 31 January 2016

A short and sweet Skincare of the Week this week because I was ill, and hanging around a cold bathroom taking pictures of my skincare (like you do) took a deserving backseat to me being wrapped up in the duvet, and slathering myself in Pommade Divine, frankly. Nothing better for a sore nose than Pommade Divine, if you ask me. Anyhoo, yes, I’m still a […]

Skincare of the Week 24 January 2016

 This week was another Tata Harper-heavy week, I’ve totally fallen in love with one of the products, and I *like* the others, but for me, the Refreshing Cleanser really is the outstanding product of the range so far.  There’s a full review of just why I like it so much coming up later this week.  I also went for a Tata Harper facial, at the […]

LipsNspritz of the Week 20.12.15

Well, unlike last week, there were no hugely stunning nasal revelations, alas, but there was still a lot to love about LipsNspritz this time around, and one nice discovery, which is good.  If you’re wondering what LipsNspritz actually is, it’s my way of smelling something different every day in an attempt to cure my parosmia, and a way to force myself to actually wear ALL […]

Pixi Books of Beauty

Currently available as limited editions at Marks and Spencer you need to rush to pick these up for Christmas presents this year!  I love a bit of Pixi Beauty and they do great kits.  This year they’re in book form, and I have three of them to show you.  Minimal Makeup, Brow Know How, and Touch of Blush. Each book comes with six large pans […]

Skincare of the Week 06.12.15

Having sensitive skin whilst the seasons are changing can be awkward, certainly I find that I have to be extra careful with the active ingredients in skincare when the weather is at its least predictable.  Still being ill with a cough really isn’t helping, either. My skin has been on the verge of being really reactive this week (I can usually tell as tiny bumps […]

Skincare of the week 29.11.15

I’ve been ill for a fortnight now – why there weren’t any posts on the blog last week, sorry! And this is the skincare I’ve been using to help myself look approximately normal again.  It’s not working, I still look like death warmed up, but at least my skin isn’t blotchy and flaking.  For now … Monday brought Biologique Recherche Lait, with PixiBeauty Glow Tonic, […]

Skincare of the Week 8th November 2015

A bit of a mixed bag this week, skincare wise.  Looking at the pictures all in one place kind of makes it clear that I have certain patterns in product usage – Pixi Glow Tonic, for example, I tend to use for two days then swap to Clarins Gentle Exfoliating Toner.  The one product I’ve used consistently this week has been Medik8 Red Alert Serum, […]

Skincare of the week: 31/10/2015

A (slightly) different format for Skincare of the Week this week … Also, I’ve decided to introduce a little Product of the Week award too!  This week was busy and stressful, and coupled with a bout of insomnia, it wasn’t really fun.  I did have a good facial this week at the Askinology Facial Bar in Leadenhall Market, which is where I discovered Medik8 Red […]

Pixi Skintreats Nourishing Cleansing Balm

I’m slowly working my way through reviewing (almost) the entire Pixi beauty skincare range, and this week it’s the turn of Pixi Skintreats Nourishing Cleansing Balm.  A gently rose-scented balm, this is great for makeup removal, and leaves skin soft and cleansed after use. A mix of almond oil, coco butter and shea butter fortified with vitamin E, this is a very soft balm, which […]

Skincare of the Week 25/10/15

 It has been a long and busy week here at Get Lippie, and my lifestyle has shown a bit in my skincare choices, I’ve swapped to a more hydrating routine, and I’ve slipped a few new products in too.  I’ll be concentrating on some night-time routines this week.  More after the jump. Early on in the week, my skin was still a bit congested, so […]
