Charlotte Tilbury Sex on Fire Cheek to Chic Blush Review and Swatches


Lovely soft and creamy formula…

Too pink and pigmented for me (so pigmented!!!)?

Tom Ford Lip Color Matte in Black Dahlia 10 and First Time 9 Review and Swatches Holiday 2014


Lovely formula and lovely colors….worth $50?  I don't know…

First time…a soft peachy pink nude.

Black Dahlia…a grape with warmer red-pink undertones.

More satin matte than matte but the formula for both wears beautifully.

Bite Beauty High Pigment Lip Pencil Set Holiday 2014 Swatches, Review and Compared to Last Year's Set


Very similar but I do like this year's set a little more (less bright…pinkish…fuchsia…).

And it's a great product at a great price.  4 at .05 oz for $25 versus 1 at .09 oz and $24.







Last year top left…this year bottom right...

NYX Simply Vamp Lip Cream in Aphrodisiac 3, Bewitching 4 and She Devil 6 Review and Swatches


Love…love …love…but I wasn't so fond of the nudes…go figure…



Aphrodisiac, Bewitching and She Devil.

NYX Simply Nude Lip Cream in Peaches, Disrobed, Fairest, Honey and Sable Review and Swatches


The formula and finish were a little inconsistent in my view.  Blend out and add a gloss?

 I liked Sable and Disrobed the best.  Peaches is a bit of a milky disaster on me.



Peaches 1, Disrobed 3, Fairest 4, Honey 5 and Sable 6.

Arabian Oud Woody Intense Fragrance (Perfume) Review


A deep rich scent, heavy with musk and our when first applied.  It softens and the rose, saffron and incense (patchouli) begin to take over.

Lovely, unisex.  Very unusual on the dry down..great mix of scents.

Tocca Simone Eau de Parfum Review


A mix of softly scented and not sweet fruit with a twist of lemon.  Exotic but understated flowers, mixed in with an aquatic undertone.  Then musk and incense, a little depth and saffron.  Wow…and unusual scent.

Only problem…wear time isn't the best (it settles into a softer version of itself).

And I love the Tocca bottles!
