Charlotte Tilbury – Filmstar Bronze & Glow – Medium Dark Review w/ Swatches


"This is a secret that silver screen sirens have kept to themselves for 
years – and once I share it with you – so will you! With FILMSTAR BRONZE 
& GLOW you can slim, sculpt, shorten, trim and highlight your features. 
It’s amazing what clever shading and highlighting tricks can do to your 
facial framework - it’s an illusion that I use all the time, particularly 
for red carpet scrutiny, and my clients can’t get enough of it. Take what 
you were born with and maximise your assets with FILMSTAR BRONZE & GLOW!

This shade is perfect for medium to dark skin tones, or deep tans, to 
contour features and mimic a sun-kissed complexion.

• The bronzer is the perfect universal blend of pearl and pigment to 
contour features and mimic a sun-kissed complexion.

• The highlighter is built up from a golden base that flatters any skin 
tone, and uses Light Flex Technology to capture light and radiate it out 
for a luminous complexion

• Colour-rich pigments are rolled into elastomer pearls that smooth & 
buff the skin for excellent blendability & perfect colour uniformity".

I had a little splurge as a present to myself the week this new bronze palette released on Charlotte’s site and even though it’s priced at £49.00, I just had to do it. Continue reading

New In – Freedom Makeup London 2015



Freedom Makeup just added over 50 new lines to their site and I am unbelievably excited. Sure, people go wild for Dipbrow and the go wild for primer water but at department store prices or with the added annoyance of overseas shipping fees, it puts a real downer on cult products. Now we don’t have to worry about any of that because Freedom is bridging the gap perfectly!

New products include ten new duo brow powders in both compacts and in professional palettes, brow pomades, strobing/contour kits, primer water, creme highlighter palettes, powder highlighter, strobing cream, pro artist shadow palette’s and so much more! Continue reading

Unicorns Unite Lipstick Full Collection Review w/ Swatches


Straight off of the bat, this looks like a fun collection for dress-up, mixing and general experimentation. There are a couple of colours that could be worn by most people everyday depending on skin tone and then a handful of fun and slightly whacky colours for more daring guys and dolls or more theatrical occasions.

My first impressions were that the colours worked well, complimented each other and fit the theme. Also, as much as a silver or a gold lipstick would fit here, MUR steered away from that and gave us some practical colours with good pigment instead. Continue reading
