I absolutely adore this. Sand Glow is a complex shimmery taupe gold creme shadow in stick form. The staying power is incredible and application is a breeze- just swipe it on and blend with fingers or a brush. I use this all on its own for an natural everyday “my lids but smokier” (on my NC40 skintone) look, and also a base for other eyeshadow colors such as taupes, bronzes, and plums.

I'm a big fan of Charlotte Tillbury's line, and this is probably my favorite out of all her products. Filmstar Bronze & Glow has a stunning retro rose gold case and contains a tawny caramel bronzer on one side and a champagne highlighter on the other. The bronzer is not entirely matte; it has a beautiful satin finish. The highlighter is pigmented and shimmery, but not overly frosty …Read more

Hands down, the most perfect bronzing powder I have ever tried. This makes my face look radiant, defined and sunkissed. On my NC40 skintone, this powder can be used as blush, bronzer, and in a pinch as eyeshadow or contour. The subtle reddish undertone is why it looks so incredibly natural. Many bronzers are too gold, orange, or shimmery- not this one. It can be applied heavily or sheered out …Read more

I picked this up at my local Bluemercury and didn't expect to like it as much as I do. This is a very thick foot cream (the consistency reminds me of Nivea in the jar) with a lavender-lemon scent. A little goes a long way, it absorbs quickly and does a nice job of softening skin. Urea is the second ingredient, and the formula also contains lanolin, shea butter, cotton thistle and lemon oil.

Buttermask for lips is an overnight lip treatment with coconut oil and wild mango butter. It has a soft cocoa butter scent, no discernible flavor, and feels a bit hard in the pot yet becomes much softer when warmed or applied. The texture is completely non-sticky and it feels very light on your lips. This formula hydrates and smoothes, and leaves my lips pillowy and extremely soft the next day …Read more

I LOVE this stuff! I've been a bottle blonde for over a decade, so I have been fighting brassiness for some time. This a bottle of highly pigmented purple toning drops you add to any product: shampoo, conditioner, masks or leave-ins. You can add a little or a lot (from one to five drops), depending on your needs. I typically add at least two and mix with a leave-in such as Oribe Supershine …Read more

My favorite of the Fresh tinted lip treatments. Sugar Fig is a sheer cool plum with silver shimmers. It goes well with my medium tan skin tone and blonde hair, but honestly it will look good on anyone. The texture is silky and light on the lips, with a sweet lemon scent. I’ve been repurchasing this shade since it debuted :)

Pillow Talk is a beautiful neutral rose pink shade without any shimmer. It's an extremely versatile, classic color that brightens the face and makes lips look plump and kissable. I have a medium (around NC40) skintone so it's hard for me to find a rose pink that doesn't end up looking too Barbie/ bright on my lips. This is perfect! Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipsticks are …Read more

This is a nice brow gel for a bit of hold and color. The tiny brush is very precise and good for combing through individual hairs. I use shade 3 and it's a solid neutral medium brown that matches my natural brow color. I don't find it adds enough thickness for me to wear it alone, so I use this as a final touch over Anastasia's Brow Wiz in Taupe.
