What three lipstick shades would you love to create?

Medium-dark ruby red with pearl in a glossier finish that doesn’t get all over your face. A medium-dark, pink-coral base with pink-to-gold shift. Muted, medium-dark rosy mauve with subtle pearl. Really I am just recreating the favorites I’ve lost over the years — Chanel Dragon Rouge Allure...

One & Done: Sirius Starlight

From inner tearduct to beyond the crease, I applied Sydney Grace Sirius Starlight (from the Quintessence palette) as a one-and-done look. For a really smooth shine and less visible sparkle, you can apply it with a dampened brush or really press it on with a fingertip. (I applied it with a dry, shader brush for the lid and a dry, fluffy brush for beyond the crease).

I applied Borealis mixed with Sirius Starlight on the lower lash line for a more sage-like color.

The On the Horizon palette features four matte shades and eight shimmers. One shimmer--Calming Presence--has a lower level of pearl and sheen, could be used as a "matte" for depth for those who don't mind a lil' bit of sheen in the crease. All three palettes are arranged similarly so that they can...
