Charlotte Tilbury Valentine Kissing and Pillow Talk Matte Lipstick Review and Swatches

Oh these work for me!

Kissing to the right below and Pillow Talk to the Left.  They look similar and do look similar on but in some ways are so very different.

Valentine is a cooler lighter pink that somehow doesn't wash me out.  It has a slight sheen, is mostly but not fully opaque and is stunning.

Pillow Talk still wins my heart.  There are those lighter (but not too light) shades that look like baby lips.  This one does it.  That soft blotted and natural perfection, in a warmer toned pink nude.  Matte, obviously.  I adore this one.

But both might be back up worthy as they're limited editions (shame).

Giorgio Armani Lip Magnet in 505, 506 and 600 Review and Swatches

These are so lovely.  They look more like a regular lipstick than a liquid one but wear super long.  The colors are vibrant and don't look dry.

505 a vivd strawberry rose, with slightly cool undertones.
506 a rose pink that is a touch warmer and less bright than 505.
600 a purplish berry than looks a lot less purple on me than swatched.

Lancome La Rose Blush Highlighter Review and Swatches

This highlighter (not blush) is so pretty.  But it's tiny!!!!

Super cool with a pink tint.

Guerlain 2017 Happy Glow (30 Year Anniversary) Meteorites Review and Swatches

These are soft, but cool toned.  Also light and with micro-glitter.  Not for everyone!!!

Mariah Carey MAC Sweet Desire Blush Review

A soft and workable peach...warm...

MAC Mariah Carey It's Everything Eyeshadow Palette

I love this cooler toned palette.  Playing up my eyes (and using a lip liner) helps me make these lighter lip shades work.

MAC Mariah Carey My Mimi Extra Dimension Skinfinish Review

Warm toned and slightly metallic, it still works on me (and I like it!).
