Highlighters - TOM FORD - Moodlight Skin Illuminating Powder Duo

Aug/28/2015

I usually have troubles with highlighters, as I get super oily real quick. So even though I love the concept, I've learned to steer clear over the years. But I was blown away by how beautiful this looks and I could NOT walk away from the counter without it. I am quite fair (NC20) thus I use the lighter shade as classical highlighter. It. Is. Amazing. It love the highlighter cream in …Read more

Powder - TOM FORD - Flawless Powder Foundation

Aug/28/2015

This is hart to rate, as it is perfect for me (thus 5 lippies), but I feel like I use this differently than most people would? I'm no way a powder foundation girl. But I was curious about this because my skin simply eats up every foundation. (Longwearing? Duh... All-day-whatever? Not for me). As I am touchup lazy too, I was looking for something convenient to reapply. This product does this …Read more

Highlighters - Charlotte Tilbury - Dreamy Glow Highlighter

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/15/2015

Does what it says: Gives a dreamy, glowy highlight. But somehow it doesn't really wow me... It's a bit more pink than the highlight in the filmstar bronze & glow, but you really have to swatch them next to each other to see a difference. It's very finely milled though and a good product. It just lacks this certain "je ne sais quoi" that I hoped for. If you love, love …Read more

Beautiful product! I didn't have a good start with the CT&Norman Parkinson collection. The lipsticks are horrible on my (but I just can't wear matte formulas, it seems) and the two bags were the first ever products I've returned, the quality was so bad. But this! THIS! I'm in love. When I opened it after the other disappointments I was ready to hate it and myself for …Read more

Lipstick - Charlotte Tilbury - 1975

Jul/08/2015

Great color! An orange, very flattering red I can see on many skintones. The coverage ist excellent and it's comfortable on the lips, which is rare in matte formulas. Unfortunately this still is not for me. It looks very worn super quickly on my textured lips. This was my last venture in the "matte lipstick"-field. I just cannot wear them. The Tom Ford matte line also looks …Read more

Lipstick - Charlotte Tilbury - Miss Kensington

This is somewhere between a nude pink and a baby pink. The color is nice, but unfortunately the CT's matte formula doesn't work for me. This goes on very patchy and even with three layers I don't get good coverage. I give it three lippies as my lips are a nightmare for this kind of colour and formulation: I have quite dark, textured lips and I should have known that this will …Read more

Accessories - Charlotte Tilbury - 'On Call' Makeup Bag

Jul/07/2015

This is not as bad as the Bathing Beauty Bag (see my other review) as it looks a bit more fancy, but same story here: This is NO WAY worth 32£. No way. I thought that after almost 20 years of loving and buying makeup, I'd be more savvy to see when something is just hyped. But now I feel a bit cheated and that they count on the fact that you'd be too lazy to send/bring this back. This …Read more

I'm a huge fan of CT's products and most of them are top notch. But this is such a disappointment. In no version of reality this is worth 55£... The photoprint looks only so-so and it's just not well made. As I live in Switzerland, it would be quite a fuss to return this (and yes, I'm lazy) but I should actually return this. I feel a bit betrayed that Charlotte's putting …Read more

Liquid - NARS Cosmetics - All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation

5.0

Jun/04/2015

Personally I think this is an amazing foundation, apart from the fact that you have to be somewhat skilled to apply it and willing to experiment with it. In the beginning I applied wayyyy too much. On my oily, eat everything up skin this worked quite well, but I was puzzled how they could ever think of calling this "luminous". It wasn't flat or mask-like, but it was full coverage …Read more

I own most of Charlotte Tilbury's palettes and after a first disappointment I'm glad I added this to my collection. When I first opened the palette I was sort of "meh" about it. The darkest shade had this greenish undertone I feared after checking out swatches online, but I wouldn't want to pass on this limited edition. As soon as I applied the shades I changed my mind: …Read more
