Long time, no see …

So yes, I’m embarrassed at not writing, and simultaneously far too embarrassed about it to actually write something to combat the initial embarrassment of not writing. My head, it’s a complicated place, at times. It’s not so much that there has been nothing going on, rather the exact opposite; for example, if I started this update simply by listing only the things that have happened […]

And all I have to say to that is: Take your stupid jade eggs, and your fines for medically misleading claims, and do just fuck off, dear.

Whee!!!

Flipping heck! It’s all a bit shiny and new around here at the moment!  Huge thanks to Phil at Pipdig for the blog refresh, and the seamless transfer of the back end.  It all looks so different! I tell you, blogging on a massively outdated platform is a huge bore, and a terrible chore. Because of all the backend changes, I’m not quite “back” in […]

Dove: a conversation about bottle shapes

  Dove: “Each bottle evokes the shapes, sizes, curves and edges that combine to make every woman their very own limited edition,”   Get Lippie: “Oh grow the fuck up. It’s unnecessary, unneeded, unrequired and unasked for. It’s also unwelcome.  Do you really think us fat fuckers people are so absolutely insecure that we need our body lotions to look like us? Or was the thinking more […]

On being an “older” beauty blogger

    My name is Get Lippie. I’m 45, and I’m tired.  I’m tired of “older” being beauty industry shorthand for “ugly”.  I’m tired of being nagged about my age by the products I use.  I’m tired of constantly reading the same old (ha!) messages all the time which imply that the only quality women have worth venerating is “youth”.  I’m tired of toothpastes and […]

I aten’t dead!

  No, really, I’m not!  I just have impingement in my shoulders caused by severe bursitis (basically, I can’t move one arm much at all) and typing is a bit of a problem at the moment … oh, and I’ve been away!  The above picture should give you a clue where I’ve been 😉 A bigger post coming up about Eurovision later this week, hopefully.

New Year, Old Me

By Tindara: Happy New Year! If you’re anything like me you will be utterly bored with all the “New Year New Me” nonsense and be wanting to shove anything “detoxing” up the jacksie with a rolling pin. At least, I think that’s what they’re recommending; I tend to switch off after someone mentions a detox. Instead, I’ve decided to do the exact opposite and track […]

A day in the life …

… of a parosmic.  My latest post on The Parosmia Diaries, on triggers, good smells, bad smells, and how an elephant with gastroenteritis can affect my whole day, is now live.  Please pop on over and take a look, I’d appreciate it!   This post: A day in the life … originated at: Get Lippie All rights reserved.

Adventures in Ageing

© Andy Gotts MBE 2014 – reproduced by kind permission      By Tindara I’ve posted previously about being a big woman and how much my creativity with make-up and fashion helps me feel confident and ready for the world. Recently, though I’ve been battling some other demon. I’m really starting to feel my age in my face. Those of you who know me or […]

New Blog …

 Don’t worry, Get Lippie’s still running, but I’ve started a new blog to detail my travails with parosmia.  It won’t just be me whining about living with a new disability, I promise, but it will detail my personal journey, alongside talking about the discoveries I’ve made about the condition, the occasional book review, and … perfume reviews!  You haven’t lived till you’ve tried to review […]

All Bound for Muumuu Land – Body image, bare face and red lipstick.

 By Tindara I’ve gone out of the house with no make-up on most of this week. This is not by design, simply down to the fact that I’ve been busy and pushed for time. Also, I have taken to carrying a small and beautiful orange satchel which doesn’t allow for carrying much make-up with me. It got me thinking again about that naked face for […]

Spring Fling – The Finale!

By Luke And finally for the Spring inspired compilation (which has nearly broken me by the way) the monochrome. Cool whites, and slick blacks. When choice is just too much of a burden, there is always staple black and whites to fall back on.  Lacoste L.12.12 Blanc As part of a series of L.12.12 from Lacoste, inspired by the iconic polo shirts, this fragrance is […]
