Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Nude Duo from Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Review and Swatches







Kim KW, Super Cindy, Pillow Talk Lip Cheat


Charlotte Tilbury has some really great sets this year in the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.

I think I may have actually got all of them.  Yikes! Yes the deals are too good to pass up.

Especially when her lipsticks are $34.00 each and her lip cheat lip liners are $22.00.

First up is Hot Lips Nude set which includes:

Kim KW matte revolution lipstick
Super Cindy matte revolution lipstick
Pillow Talk lip cheat lip liner

These are her three best selling shades of lip products.

I did purchase Kim KW last year when it was first released and loved it ( you def need a liner with it), so when I seen this set I knew I had to get it.

I mean it is only $60.00 ( $90 Value) for all three full size products.

You seriously can't go wrong with this set.

Charlotte Tilbury has amazing products and this is a great way to try some new colors and just new products if you are new to the line.

I have several anniversary sets coming up soon.

Did you pick up anything from the sale?? 

I would love to know what you got or if you are buying the set.


XOXO,

Vicki

KKW Creme Liquid Lipstick By Kylie Cosmetics Review , Swatches and Giveaway




Kimberly, Kim, Kiki, Kimmie



I purchased the new KKW X Kylie Cosmetics collaboration when it first was released last month.

Shipping seemed to take forever ( 2 1/2 weeks to be exact) which is ridiculous since they're located in California and so am I.

I have purchased from Kylie Cosmetics prior to this and shipping never took that long , so ya I pretty annoyed by it.

When I first saw the KKW release info I was so excited......Well because,  ummm the cute pink packaging of course.   Hello!!!  

I also wanted to try out the new liquid creme formulation too.

All four colors of this collection are nude. 

Which is not dark skinned complexion friendly I might add. 

Hell I am medium to medium tan complexion and I even need to use a liner to make these colors work.

Should of known better since all the models used for this collection were all light skinned models.

The formula is just ok and the wand makes for a streaky application. 

They really should have made the wand applicator longer in my opinion.

My two favorite colors are Kiki and Kimmie. 

I know many of you missed on this collection and would love to get your hands on it.

So I ordered two, one for me and one for you!!

XOXO,

Bare Minerals Invisible Bronze and Invisible Glow Review and Swatches




Medium Invisible Glow

Fair-Light Invisble Glow

Medium Invisible Bronze

Medium Glow, Medium Bronze, Fair-Light Glow

I have always been a fan of Bare Minerals, not so much their loose mineral products anymore but I love their pressed makeup line and liquid foundations.

Bare Minerals Invisible Bronze and Invisible Glow are newer products to the line which are baked. 
Which means they start off as a cream product and are baked on a terracotta tile for 24 hours. The outcome is pure pigment without any binder or fillers.

The bronzer and highlighter both come in four shades; Fair to Light, Medium, Tan and Dark to Deep.

I bought the medium in both bronzer and highlight as a set from QVC which is way cheaper than buying at Bare Mineral retailers. 

Both Retail for $28.00 each.

I like the medium bronzer even though it does have shimmer particles in the formula which I am usually not a fan of but of it works for me in this particular powder. 

Now Invisible Glow which is the highlighter ( medium) just blends into my skin and shows shimmer no highlight at all. well maybe thats why it's name is invisible....haha

 I ended up purchasing the Fair to Light Invisible glow and to my surprise that works well for me. 

Even thought these are marketed in four color ways, you can definitely mix and match the bronzer 
and highlighters.

Buying them in the set from the Q definitely didn't work for me since I needed to mix and match my shades.

This is not my go to bronzer but this is a nice change for the summer for added glow.

Have you seen tried either of these products yet?

I would love to know your thoughts.

XOXO,

Vicki
