Delilah Pure Light Illuminating Powder in Aura

I’ve been waiting to get my hands on Delilah’s Pure Light Illuminating Powder in Aura ever since India Knight raved about it in the Sunday Times late last year! It sounded like it was the perfect powder, illuminating, not glittery, and she used the phrase “you absolutely do not look shiny, just lit from within”.  Well, who doesn’t want to look lit from within at […]

Rodial Instaglam Compact Deluxe Banana Powder

  I do love a yellow-toned face powder.  For years, my default face powder has been Hourglass Diffused, and, after hitting pan on my third one, I thought it was time to possibly try out a few different ones rather than just blindly buying the same powder again. Enter Rodial Instaglam Compact Deluxe Banana Powder. A finely milled, soft yellow powder, Rodial are promoting this […]

Erborian 0.09 Touch au Ginseng Creamy Powder Compact

   Sometimes I really shouldn’t be allowed out, you know. I was at a launch with the founder of Erborian a couple of months ago, and I got so excited by this product that all I could say for about 20 minutes was “It’s a jelly! But it’s a powder! But it’s a jelly!”.  This is, I suspect, why I’m not going to be challenging […]

Burberry Christmas 2015 – Military Red Lips and Nails

Nothing says Christmas like red and gold, and Burberry have gone out of their way this year to package up some of their cult products (and add a couple of new ones) in a festive manner.  This might be my favourite collection of theirs in quite some time. Packaged in shiny golden livery, in a festive change from the traditional pewter, the mini-collection consists of […]

Guerlain Meteorites Flocons Enchantes Christmas 2015

The first sight of Guerlain’s Christmas collection every year is the real sign that the festive season is on the way, and frankly, this year’s Meteorites have excelled themselves.  They’re beautiful, and so is the packaging. Moving away from the traditional fluted tin, Guerlain are presenting this year’s Meteorites in a beautiful snowglobe complete with golden accents. The last time they moved away from the […]

Guerlain Meteorites Compact – Medium

I’m a bit of a Meteorites completist, I admit.  So, when I was brutally mugged by this compact at the Guerlain counter at Vienna airport recently, I didn’t mind too much.  I love Meteorites, and have almost every edition they’ve done in the last ten years.  It’s very sad, as I rarely use them, because they’re not very portable.  I do love the glow you […]

Ace of Base – RMK, Zelens Hourglass and Smashbox

Over on Instagram I’m always putting up pics of things that have recently arrived at Lippie Mansions, pictures of things I’m doing, and setting up pics of things that are upcoming for review.  My ugly mug isn’t on there too often, so you’re quite safe, and if you like pictures of random products and the occasional badly framed picture of something not quite in focus with […]

Guerlain Christmas 2014 – Mereorites Perles D’Etoile

Christmas isn’t Christmas (yes, I do know it’s October, bear with me) without Guerlain’s limited edition Meteorites.  After what was – for me – the relative disappointment with the design of 2013’s Crazy Paris collection, this year’s Coque d’Or collection is a return back to the beautiful design that I associate with Guerlain’s Christmas collection. The entire collection is themed around gold and red, and […]
