A rare video (eek, argh, cringe, etc, etc…)

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 2 - 2011

I woke up on Saturday morning and decided that I wanted to make a video.  Infact, I was completely inspired by Jerry’s videos over at silhouettescreams when I had a watchathon (like a marathon but creepier) on her blog the night before.  It’s great to feel a connection with someone you’ve never met through the medium of blog or youtube, and Jerry’s vids reminded me that you don’t have to be doing tutorials or showing hauls to be able to enjoy that connection and I was just able to sit there with my cup of tea, smiling along to her being adorable/funny/warm/makeup-loving.  Simple things in life can bring great pleasures!

Ok, so I should preface this by saying that I’m not as endearing as Jerry and the lighting in my video is not only shit but quite irritating to watch but I tried my hardest to chat in the same way as I do when I’m tapping out stuff on the keyboard.  Making videos is HARD.  Hats off to you girls who do it everyday.

So anyway, um… hello…

I’m trying not to CRINGE and I haven’t even pressed play – the still image is making my face turn inside-out as I sit here.

Anyway, I hope you’re having a lovely weekend!

Bottega Veneta gives me the chills

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 10 - 2011

I have no idea what the new fragrance by Bottega Veneta smells like — though leathery floral chypre sounds promising — but it’s this short film by director Christian Weber that really gives me the chills.

They say

This film, The Scent, is an intense and compelling visual journey which tells the story of the fragrance.

I say

Slow start, promising middle and a cracking, action-packed finish that would make Bruce Willis proud.  Move over Claudia Winkleman, I’m chasing your Film 2011 gig.

Seriously though, does anyone else a little shiver watching this?

Spreading the festive cheer…

…this year are two great homegrown brands.  Both The Body Shop and LUSH have commissioned their own festive videos for interwebz consumption.

If you haven’t seen them already, you can check out their festive video offerings below:

But which is your favourite Christmas video?

In the words of Harry Hill’s TV Burp… The Body Shop vs. Lush?  FIGHT!

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 30 - 2010

Avon bring us one of the easiest to recreate Christmas party looks I’ve seen so far, I’m loving the heavy eyeliner and pink lips.

I’ve blogged about that sparkly blue Avon Glimmerstick Diamonds and the Avon Lace Hues Palette before, so check those posts for swatches.

I’m getting tons of wear from my black Avon SuperShock Gel Eyeliner… and I’m going to start putting my silver one to good use too now that Christmas is getting ever-closer!

Have you got any Christmas parties to attend this year?  Started scouring the net for makeup inspiration?
