Pillow Talk

Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Eyeshadow Quad ($52.00 for 0.18 oz.) is a new set of rosy neutrals with two mattes and two shimmers that’s supposed to be a permanent extension of the Pillow Talk family. Nordstrom gets first access to the release beginning today (for this as well as the Pillow Talk blush, which I reviewed late last year). It’s a drier, dustier set of shades, and the monochromatic nature of it didn’t come together as well as I expected as they shades ran too much into each other. If the last shade was a few shades deeper, it would have made the quad more versatile and more likely to work across skin tones. The frostiness of the first shade didn’t jive as well with the mattes, and it all ended up looking dusty on my lid.

I Am Positive

Milani I Am Positive Bold Color Statement Matte Lipstick ($6.99 for 0.14 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with subtle, warm red undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had rich pigmentation that adhered evenly and smoothly to my lips. It had a lightweight, thinner consistency that had a velvety slip but did not feel wet nor did it slide around while worn. The color didn’t seem to emphasize my lip lines as much as other shades in the range. It lasted well for five hours and was neither drying nor hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$6.99/0.14 oz. - $49.93 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to be "bold, hydrating color" with "intense color in just one swipe." The finish is more of a "soft matte" to true satin (a little more sheen than "soft matte" to my eye), and the finish will wear down to a more matte finish within an hour or two of wear (or faster if one blots). The texture felt lightweight, thinner on my lips but felt lightly creamy with more of a velvety slip as I glided the product across my lips. It didn't tug, but the product had good hold and wore between four and seven hours on me, depending on the shade.

In my experience, the more velvety slip seems to result in the color pulling away a bit more along my lip lines and can be more prone to accentuating any imperfections of my lips (texture, flakiness, and so forth). A few shades were on the drying side, while most were non-drying. The majority of the range was pigmented with payoff typically ranging between semi-opaque and opaque. The formula has a sweet, vanilla scent but no discernible taste to me.

Tarteist

Tarte Tarteist Pro Glow & Blush Palette ($45.00 for 1.18 oz.) is a cheek palette that features one highlighter, one bronzer, and four blushes. I quite enjoyed how they applied and lasted throughout the day across the board, though two shades could have been more blendable than they were. The biggest “issue” I had with the palette was the inclusion of both Electric and Amp blushes–they’re just too similar to have in the same palette. I also think that the palette would have benefited from one blush having a more satin-to-pearl (less intense) finish to make it a more well-rounded set of shades.

I’m working through a really fun, random, worst-breakout-of-my-life situation (didn’t change up products and have no idea what triggered it), so I’m back on prescription antibiotics (topical) for it. Of course, it started resolving a bit more noticeably the day of my doctor’s appointment, but between what I was doing and the clindamycin, things are looking up again (wrote this answer a week ago; now it’s mostly cleared up, just some healing/fading of marks). My skincare routine has been really out of sorts since early December as I’ve been trying to prevent/heal from that breakout and less of my “norm,” which I was happy with.
