Most Loved Products


01. Tom Ford Beauty Honeymoon

Honeymoon #4 is a deep plum with soft, warm, brown undertones and a satin finish. It was the least shimmery shade, which is something the quad needed for better cohesion, I think. Read full review.

Gash is described as a "metallic brick red." It's a rich, medium-dark red with warm, orange undertones and a pearly sheen. Read full review.


03. Urban Decay Asphyxia

Asphyxia Eyeshadow ($18.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a "hyacinth shimmer with blue shift." It's a light-medium, pink-lavender with an iridescent, blue sheen. Read full review.

Most Wanted Products

Laced is a pink-tinged beige with a hint of gray and has a matte finish. It had good color payoff and was soft without being powdery. Read full review.


02. Urban Decay Smog

12 Shades of Peach for Spring

For today’s theme, I went for a more orange-peach, both light, medium, and darker in color but nothing truly orange or so light it was more beige. I might do a more pinky-peach round-up in the future for those who prefer a rosier tone to their peach shades :)

Introduction to Charlotte Tilbury

Introduction to Charlotte Tilbury

I’m new to this brand. Where should I start?

A Few Notes | Charlotte Tilbury’s most iconic product is likely her Magic Cream, which is a moisturizer (and now comes in additional types of products, like eye and night creams). I love almost everything about the Eyes to Mesmerise cream eyeshadow formula, but they did crease on me, which is why I’ve only recommended the most interesting and versatile of the shades there, but they’re well-worth trying if you have decent luck with cream eyeshadows (some readers reported no creasing, others had similar experiences) and primer will help.

What would you recommend to someone just trying Charlotte Tilbury for the first time?
