Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita Palette and Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk

These 'Perfect Partners' are the ultimate combination for an evening look! This palette screams out to be worn, it is so beautiful.

 Charlotte Tilbury states she has 'de-coded the secret to mesmerizing eyes' , and mesmerize it does.
This palette is particularly PERFECT for green eyes, the reddy copper brown, champagne gold and bronzey browns accentuate the brightness in your eyes, giving that sultry Mediterranean 'Dolce Vita' look... but this palette still works beautifully for all eye colours and skin tones.

The texture of these shadows are buttery soft, with incredible pigmentation, making them super blendable. The staying power is pretty great too!
 1. Prime shade: A light champagne shade with hints of  gold shimmer (gorgeous worn alone for a daytime look)
2. Enhance Shade: A coppery red toned brown
3. Smoke shade: A bronzey chocolate brown
4. Pop Shade: An 'old gold' chunkier glitter (best applied with fingers) which brings the look together!

This palette can provide that 'Desk to Dusk to Disco' look. Charlotte herself has an amazing tutorial demonstrating how to get the best out of this palette.

The nude-pink soft finish of the Lip Cheat in 'Pillowtalk' provides the perfect lip look, enhancing size and shape but not outdoing the eyes. This stuff last and lasts! It is waterproof with a 6 hour + wear
This is hands down the best lip liner I have ever owned but at £16 isn't the cheapest, but it's certainly worth it!
I have a post with some dupes/similar liners coming up which are more purse friendly.

L'Oreal True Match Foundation Review...The Best Drugstore Foundation Ever?

Wide shade rage? Check
Blendable and buildable? Check
Long lasting? Check
For £9.99 can you get a better everyday foundation? Well, I don't think so,  I love this foundation!
Available in 23 shades in the UK, L'Oreal claim this foundation provides coverage without caking and conceals imperfections due to it's micro-fine, creamy texture that blends perfectly with the skin.
 I have to agree with all of that.
I wear the shade D3/W3 and apply it with the Real Techniques buffing brush.
 I have combination-dry skin, with an oily T Zone.
 I can put this foundation on at 6am, return home at 8.30pm and it is still on (without primer and without powdering) with only some slight movement on my T-Zone area . Applying primer and powder only enhances this foundation even more.
In terms of finish, I'd say this is a semi-matte to matte foundation on my skin, and the colour is perfect- it's still wearable on days where I'm a little paler or a little more tanned than usual due to it's ability to adapt to skin so well.
I love wearing it with the L'Oreal Lumi Magique primer underneath to give it a bit of a glow, but if you're looking for a more overall dewy foundation then check out L'Oreal's Lumi Magique foundation. Blog post coming soon on both of these!
