Argillaceous Revitalize Mask and Primer/Refresher Face Powder Review

Great natural products for those with oily or acne prone skin.  Clays prevent oils from building up on your face after you use them.  Thus, the combination of the mask and face powder will help prevent that oily build up during the day.

To buy:

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in 11 Shades including Androgyny and Masochist Review and Swatches

These shades are a mix of every day and dramatic looks.  Nice formula, mostly consistent.

Top row: Redrum, Unicorn Blood, Dominatrix.
Bottom: I'm Nude, Celebrity Skin, Posh Spice, Queen Supreme, 714, Androgyny, Anna Nicole and Masochist.

Bite Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Pepper, Beetroot and Gazpacho Review and Swatches

I have always been a fan of Bite's sense of color.  This new Amuse Bouche is an improved formula, but the brand has still kept the vividness of their shades (or maybe added to it).  The formula reminds me of the Cream Deluxe ones (from the monthly shades in 2015). It's a touch heavier and richer on, and also a bit more opaque.  And these don't bleed on me (some of the older Bite formulas did).
The new pepper is less glossy and more opaque than the old.  It is also less peach and more brown, but not a brown (still a nude).  Better coverage and wear.
Beetroot is a balanced berry, with a mix of pink, purple and a touch of red.
Gazpacho is my favorite of the three.  It is a blue based red,with a touch of pink.  Very special color.

Tatcha 23 Karat Gold Illuminated Lipstick in Sunrise Review and Swatches

A pretty soft plum rose as promised.  A little sheer, with a lighter formula (feel and coverage) that still looks nice on.  It wears about an hour on me.  The lipstick also picks up some of my lip color (rose) as it isn't fully opaque.  I only see the gold in sunlight.

The packaging is gorgeous.

Guerlain Rouge G Rose Marveilleux, Tatcha and Dolce & Gabbana Sophia Loren.  The Guerlain is more opaque and pink, the Tatcha has a plum hint and is more sheer, the Sophia Loren has the richest pink color and is the most opaque (with a gorgeous luminance).

Natasha Denona Eyeshadow 5 Palette in 12 Review and Swatches

Lovely shades, seems the individual formulas might vary.  I like the purple and golds in this 5 palette.

Tom Ford Sphinx Cream Color for Eyes Review and Swatches

More shimmer than duo chrome, though I do see the duo chrome.  Sheer, shimmery formula without the TF metallic richness.  Very pretty but not a must have.  Not thrilled with the new packaging narrower opening, smaller by weight and more expensive).

Ciate London Liquid Velvet Lipstick in Swoon, Risque, Pin Up, Diva

Another brand with gorgeous liquid lipstick shades.  I do get a little transfer.  I adore Swoon.
