NYX Can't Stop Won't Stop | Review

Whilst strolling around in my local Boots I came across a new foundation from NYX, now I have never tried any foundations before from NYX so when I saw this I was rather excited as I do use a fair few of their amazing products.

Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Foundation* is truly incredible ranging in 45 different shades so there is something for everyone, I am the shade Pale and I have been using this for over 3 weeks now and I now feel I have fully put it to the test, let's just say I’m really really impressed. 

I only use one pump and it’s plenty to give really full coverage, the shade is perfect for my fair skin and matches my neck perfectly, what I love the most about this foundation is that it gives really full coverage but it doesn’t ever look cakey and lasts all day…..and when I say all day, I mean all day. Literally if I applied my makeup in the morning, by the evening it still looks how it did in the morning, it doesn’t fade, doesn’t go patchy and looks gorgeous. I love that it is not expensive and super easy to buy. It claims to have 24 hour wear, I haven’t tested it for 24 hours non stop but by the evening it still looks pretty good. 

It’s fine if you have dry skin (which I tend to have) and it’s also fine on oily areas like the t-zone. I’m just obsessed with this foundation already, it’s just super light weight, yet full coverage and doesn’t have a price tag that’s through the earth. It blends beautifully and colour wise this is something so wonderful to be able to see in Boots. The amount of foundations that do not match my very caspar face really makes me sad as I feel there are a few brands that do a ‘pale’ foundation and it doesn’t match fair or pale skin at all, so NYX thank you for creating something that I not only love but I will continue to purchase time and time again. 

If you haven’t already get your hands on this foundation it’s awesome and only cost £15 which yes is sligthly more on the price side for a drugstore foundation but it’s awesome.

Stars In Your Eyes Palette | Review

The very moment I saw this was being released I squealed with excitement as you all know (or rather should know) by now just how much I utterly love Charlotte Tilbury Products and her incredible, unstoppable and stunning brand. 

Stars In Your Eyes Palette* was released on the 20th September and I just had to get my hands on one, Charlotte very successful launched a palette like this last year and it sold out in under 24 hours so it’s no surprise that this palette is going to be another almighty show stopping palette. Just as popular as the original Charlotte has bought back another Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette, cased inside comic enchanting purple speckled packaging is 12 utterly gorgeous eyeshadow shades, that anyone and everyone will most certainly love and use. 

I have been testing this palette out over the past few days and I already love it, Incredibly long lasting, smudge proof yet super easy to blend, no creasing, not fall out just utterly creamy, buttery and super stunning shadows that can create so many gorgeous looks, the formula is so impressive and the textures of each shadow are spot on.  With a variety of both matte shades and shimmer shades you can really achieve any and every look you wish. With tones ranging from beautiful peachy pink shades, to coppery ones to even your gorgeous plum shades you really have so much variety. 

The one thing that I don’t love is that it’s Limited Edition I WISH charlotte would do more of these stunning palettes and make them permanent.

Overall Charlotte you have only gone and done it again, I love all of these shades. Love Eyes is like a mini Pillow Talk Eyeshadow Palette (review here), Power Eyes is beautiful coppery nudes, Happy Eyes is your rich pinky cherry purples and Confident Eyes are something so stunning, perfect if you were going for a party look.

All in all I love this palette! And the wonderful news is that it's still available. I will also be doing a makeup tutorial with this palette very very soon.

Did you manage to get your hands on the Stars In Your Eyes Palette?

The Pillow Talk Look

Another fabulous and gorgeous collection from the queen of the beauty world has arrived. I’m of course once again talking about Charlotte Tilbury. With an ever-growing makeup wardrobe that is loved and adored by the likes of Miss Kate Moss, Alexa Chung and Emma Roberts. It’s no surprise that Tilbury is really the queen of the makeup industry.

On Friday 6th September Charlotte released another wonderful collection that is based around and a mini extension of her wonderful Pillow Talk products. Move over lip cheat & lipstick we are now talking about a stunning eyeshadow quad and a fabulous swish and pop blusher to join the classic Tilbury Pillow Talk products. 

Pillow Talk is one of the most beloved products Charlotte has ever made, a gorgeous pinky-nude colour that looks flattering on any skintone. 

First up we have the stunning Pillow Talk Luxury Eyeshadow Palette. The classic tilbury quad with creamy, easy to blend and flattering shades that are designed not only to complement your eyes but also the Pillow Talk Lipstick & Lip Liner. With two matte shades a gorgeous dusky pink and a matte pretty rose along with a baby pink and a stunning rose gold shimmery pop shade it’s sure going to be a hit with everyone. This palette looks gorgeous on my blue eyes and really makes them stand out.

Moving on to the Cheek to Chic ’Swish & Glow” Blusher. If there is one Tilbury Product I love it’s most certainly their blushers, super pigmented, stunning on every skintone and dreamy packaging they never disappoint. This one is gorgeous the name is of course Pillow Talk and has this beautiful pinky-nude shade on the outside circle and this stunning golden speckled pale pink champagne colour in the middle. It adds a beautiful shimmer and warmth to the cheeks without looking heavy. Again very very pigmented and extremely beautiful. 

As you can see below I have created the Pillow Talk Look and used all the products I’ve just talked about including both the lip liner and the lipstick. It really is a very flattering and another stunningly gorgeous collection.

Break down of products used:

Nyx Dark Circle Corrector, Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation, Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in 0 Extra Fair, RCMA loose setting powder, MAC Charcoal Brown Eyeshadow (to fill in my eyebrows), Maybeline Brow Drama Brow Gel, Urban Decay Primer Potion, Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Eyeshadow Palette, Collection Highlight & Sculpt Kit, Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Blusher, Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Liner, Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lipstick.

A Touch Of Tilbury

I few weeks back I paid a little visit to the queen of all Tilbury stores which was of course Charlotte's first ever stand alone store in Covent Garden, I wanted to share with you all how utterly stunning it was inside and say how friendly all the staff were, that and confess to you all I may have bought something again which is sadly limited edition and sold out everywhere. I am of course talking about Star Gold which is incredible for blue eyes and really makes them pop.

Star Gold was the one cream eyeshadows that I had my heart set on from the very moment I saw it or rather swatched it, gorgeously creamy and super pigmented it was literally screaming at me "buy me" so I did. I love using this all over the eyelid as it really, really enhances my blue eyes and brings them out more, I've been using this shadow for a while now and still it looks like I've hardly even touched it, it's just so light yet so pigmented and a tiny amount goes an extremely long way. I just really rate the CT shadows all round. The next ones on my cream eyeshadow wishlist are Mona Lisa and Bette (another coppery shade).

Have you ever tried Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadows?
