The Icon Palette
I have been loving the new Charlotte Tilbury The Icon palette so much and literally can’t stop using it!! I think the textures and formulation are pretty unique, especially the matte shades which have the most skin flattering sheen. I’ve been beauty blogging for quite a few years now, and this is the first time I have come across a wet and dry palette like this. When you add water, the shadows turn into actual creams much like Charlotte’s individual Eyes to Mesmerise cream shadow pots.
Nars Super Radiant Booster
In this video, it’s the first time I have been using the new NARS Super Radiant Booster like a primer and I really like it. It is also great mixed into foundation, so I am finding it to be a brilliant addition to a makeup bag as you can also tap it on top of makeup as a highlighter. I love a multi-tasker.
Shade & Illuminate Intensity 0.5
My other favourite is the new 0.5 Intensity of Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate. I already loved the textures of this contour and highlighting duo and now the new shade additions have made it even more appealing. Intensity 1 works on my skin tone but leaned a little on the yellow side. The new 0.5 is much cooler and easier to work with to create a shadow on my skin tone. I love it!
Also I had never tried Tom Ford’s Satin Matte Lip Color in London Suede before and I’m so excited about it because it’s definitely a new favourite nude!
