Dior Addict Lip Maximizers – New Formula + Colors

January 31, 2023

Dior Addict Lip Maximizers new formula and shades 2023

Dior recently reformulated their Addict Lip Maximizers ($40 each) and I am thrilled with the new formula and colors. Their Lip Maximizer formula has been one of their best selling glosses and according to Dior they’ve reformulated this to have ingredients that are more natural in origin and revamped the colors to include more opaque shades with different finishes in the classic jelly finish, holographic, shimmer and intense versions.

I am a huge fan of the original formula and I’m happy to find the new ones are just as good. To me feel pretty much identical. They have the same smooth texture, slightly minty cooling sensation, subtle plumping effect, medium lasting power. The main difference is many of the colors have better color payoff with more opaque pigment. They still don’t have super long lasting power but they will stay put for several hours. The bonus of the glossy formula is that they fade nicely and evenly so you don’t have a ring around the edges of your lip. I don’t mind reapplying!

Dior brought back a number of their classic colors and added quite a few new ones. Every single color I tried is beautiful. A few of them are on the sheer side so my natural lip shows through. If your lips aren’t as pigmented as mine are the colors will pull more true to tube on you.

Dior Addict Lip Maximizers new formula and shades 2023

I have 18 of the shades. While you can find this new formula at all Dior retailers and counters like Nordstrom, Sephora, Bloomingdale’s, Ulta Beauty etc. some of them appear to be exclusive to Dior.com. I compared a few of the original shades to their new formulation and the colors are almost identical. Pink and Coral are the same. The new Rosewood pulls a little more neutral. The new Holographic Pink has a slightly less duochrome quality. The new Beige has a bit more pigment compared to the original.

  • 001 Pink – sheer light pink
  • 002 Opal – sheer opal sheen
  • 003 Holographic Lavender – holographic light purple
  • 004 Coral – jelly milky coral peach
  • 005 Shimmer Strawberry – pigmented strawberry pink with a hint of shimmer
  • 006 Berry – soft plum with medium pigment
  • 007 Raspberry – jelly raspberry
  • 009 Intense Rosewood – warm pigmented rose
  • 010 Holographic Pink – shimmering iridescent pink
  • 012 Rosewood – classic soft rose
  • 013 Beige – sheer light beige
  • 014 Shimmer Macadamia – gorgeous rose beige with a hint of pearl
  • 016 Shimmer Nude – shimmery beige nude
  • 018 Intense Spice – creamy warm spice (this is the only one I didn’t swatch on lips)
  • 019 Shimmer Peach – warm coral peach with gold shimmer
  • 026 Intense Mauve – stunning mauve with a bit of shimmer
  • 030 Shimmer Rose – pretty shimmery pink
  • 038 Rose Nude – perfect nude pink cream

I think the shade range is beautiful and they’ve seemed to launch shades to suit every color preference from neutrals to bolds, shimmers to creams and sparkles too! It’s tough to pick favorites and even though I splurged on so many there are other shades I would have liked to try too. If you’re a gloss girl then you’ll be thrilled with this formula and the color extensions.

If I could only pick 5 they would be: 038 Rose Nude, 26 Intense Mauve, 014 Shimmer Macadamia, 007 Raspberry and 030 Shimmer Rose.

Bottom line love and highly recommend. You can find these out now available at Dior, Nordstrom, Sephora, Bloomingdale’s, Ulta Beauty and all other Dior retailers.

NARS

NARS Orgasm Collection Spring 2023

January 25, 2023

NARS Orgasm Launch for Spring 2023

NARS launched some new additions for spring with their 2023 Orgasm Collection in some stunning pink packaging and I have a review + swatches for you today. The collection was launched early to Ulta Beauty and NARS Cosmetics. It’s now also available at Sephora. There are 5 new pieces including:

NARS Orgasm Collection Spring 2023

Orgasm Rising Eyeshadow Palette

NARS Orgasm Rising Eyeshadow Palette

I’ll start with my favorite item in the collection which is the Orgasm Rising Eyeshadow Palette. This is a stunning palette with 9 shades. It has a good mix of textures and tones. To me this seems like an updated take on their Wanted Palette from several years ago (which I really loved). This palette has:

  • Hotwired is a metallic champagne
  • High Speed is a shimmery beige peach with sparkles
  • Orgasm is a pink gold shimmer
  • Seven Heaven is a matte soft light brown
  • Seduced is a medium rosy sparkle loaded with gold and silver and pink flecks
  • Reckless is a warm satin brown with tiny gold shimmer
  • Push It is a medium matte warm brown
  • Faster Pussycat is a deeper copper shimmer
  • Galapagos is a matte dark chocolate with gold flecks

I love the tones, pigment, color payoff and wearability. It’s warm but not too warm/red for my skin tone. It’s one I can easily see myself wearing this year. It is similar to what we’ve seen from NARS in the past but I still really like this one.

NARS Orgasm Rising Eyeshadow Palette

NARS Orgasm Rising Eyeshadow Palette swatches

The Multiples

NARS Multiples Orgasm and Orgasm Rush

NARS has two Multiple Cream Sticks in the new limited-edition packaging. Orgasm is their classic pink gold shimmer. This one seems to be more emollient in texture than I remember but not dewy. On my skin tone it’s almost invisible. The gold and pink tones almost match my skin (NARS Light Reflecting Foundation in Santa Fe + Sahel right now) so all you see is a slight gold pink sheen.

Since it has a very emollient finish this has minimal lasting power on me. I think it could be used as a nice highlight for special date nights or going out, but it’s not going to be an all-day wear kind of product, especially if you have combo/oily skin.

NARS Multiple in Orgasm

NARS Multiple in Orgasm

NARS Blush in Orgasm

I did another look with their regular Powder Blush in Orgasm which shows up a lot better on me. If you want this tone but no shimmer then I highly recommend checking out the Liquid Blush in Orgasm. This is one of the best liquid blush formulas and I wish they would launch more colors in this!

NARS Blush in Orgasm

_______

NARS Multiple in Orgasm Rush

Orgasm Rush is a deeper almost russet color. It has a less emollient finish, almost thinner in texture and better dry down. I’m undecided on this. I’m at my palest right now (almost 2 foundation shades lighter than I normally am) so it pulls a bit orangey. If I had a tan I think I would like this more, however due to the sheerness I’m not sure how well it would show up.

NARS Multiple in Orgasm Rush

Orgasm Four Play Blush Quad

NARS Orgasm Four Play Blush Palette

Last we have a look at the Orgasm Four Play Blush Quad. This has that pressed metallic finish. It’s not as frosty as I had anticipated and on me it did not emphasize texture (huge plus!). It’s a nice intro to the line if you’re new to NARS and the colors blend out nicely on the skin. Love the compact size (easy to fit in my hand) and the pan size is pretty good. Convenient, pretty and glowy.

Colors include:

  • Swinger pale metallic gold
  • Orgasm metallic pink gold
  • Orgasm X deeper pink with gold shimmer
  • Orgasm Rush copper russet shimmer

NARS Orgasm swatches

However I can’t help but feel this is a boring repeat of what NARS has launched in the past so many times. To me isn’t new or innovative so if you already own a lot of NARS you can safely pass.

NARS Orgasm Launch 2023

That’s my take on the new NARS Orgasm Collection for spring! I think the new eyeshadow palette is a winner. In the Orgasm color lineup I still think the Afterglow Lip Shine, Original Powder Blush and Liquid Blush are the best shades they’ve launched to date.

You can find these out now at Sephora, Ulta Beauty and NARS.

Charlotte Tilbury Highlighters

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Glow Glide Highlighters

January 11, 2023

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Glow Glide Highlighters

Charlotte Tilbury launched new powder highlighters called the Hollywood Glow Glide Face Architect Highlighters ($48 each). There are seven shades total – six shades are available at most retailers like Nordstrom, Sephora, Bloomingdale’s, Revolve etc. and one of them looks like it is exclusive to Charlotte Tilbury (Sunset Glow).

I picked up six of the Glow Glide Highlighters to swatch and test. These are powder highlighters that have a very smooth application. Shimmer is finely milled and glowy with medium to rich pigment. I’d say finish is on the more glowy side but it’s easy to blend/sheer out for a more subtle highlight.

At this point I think I have enough highlighters to last several lifetimes, but I think these are really beautiful. I like that there are tones to suit fair, medium, medium tan and deeper skin tones. I don’t know that I’d call any of these must-haves, to me these have a very similar vibe to the current Dior Forever Couture Luminizer Powders but with slight differences in color and undertone.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Glow Glide Highlighters

Colors include:

  • Moonlit Glow is a pale ivory highlighter on my skin, it has the sharpest contrast on my skin
  • Champagne Glow is a champagne highlighter, also very pale but a bit deeper
  • Pillow Talk Glow is a light pearly pink glow
  • Gilded Glow is a pretty gold shimmer
  • Bronze Glow is a neutral golden bronze, definitely looks bronzey on my skin, I think it makes a great eyeshadow color
  • Rose Gold Glow is the closest highlighter I’ve seen to match rose gold, pulls warm on my skin, almost orangey but I think this would look beautiful on deeper skin tones

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Glow Glide Highlighters swatches

Check them out in action on my latest Reel:

 

For my skin twins quick note that I’m a shade to a shade and a half lighter than I normally am. I had to buy a shade lighter in a few foundations because most of them are too dark for me. I do tan easily so I suspect I will get more color soon. For the Charlotte Tilbury foundation I’m Shade 6 now.

Overall I really like the quality and finish. My favorites are Pillow Talk Glow and Champagne Glow although I think I will definitely be wearing Bronze Glow more once I get some more color. I really love the color in Gilded Glow but it’s a bit warm/yellow on me right now. For a more neutral gold I think the Dior Forever Couture Highlighter in Golden Glow is more wearable since it’s more neutral and less yellow. For a less orangey/warm color than Charlotte Tilbury Rose Gold I think you can opt for the Chanel Oversize Highlighter in Or Rose.

Since I love her Glowgasm Beauty Light Wand in Peachgasm I kinda wish she had launched a peachy powder highlighter or a deeper pink to match her Pinkgasm shade. For now I will stick with the wands since I think those colors are perfect.

Westman Atelier The Squeaky Clean Vault

Westman Atelier The Squeaky Clean Vault

Westman Atelier has some beautiful sets this year. The Squeaky Clean Vault ($228, available at Westman Atelier and Bergdorf Goodman) is quite the splurge with six new shades of the Squeaky Clean Lip Liquid Balm, all exclusive to this set. Today I have a look + swatches.

The six colors include:

  • Parla – sheer sparkling gold
  • Biscuit – neutral cool beige
  • Ma Biche – cherry red
  • Lou Lou – plum brown
  • Snowy – sheer sparkling white
  • Rudey Nudey – perfect nude pink

Westman Atelier The Squeaky Clean Vault

Westman Atelier The Squeaky Clean Vault

The Squeaky Clean Lip Liquid Balms are smooth and non-sticky. They have a nice moisturizing feel with a natural glossy look. They adhere well to the lips though without feeling like they’ll slide off. Colors pull on the sheer side in terms of pigment for the lighter and neutral colors. Deeper bold shades have more color payoff.

Swatches:

Swatch comparisons of the lighter shades to other formulas. The formulas of these are all different but I wanted to add for color comparison: Laura Mercier Lip Glace, Pat McGrath LUST Gloss, Victoria Beckham Beauty Posh Gloss, Summer Fridays Lip Butter and Kosas Wet Lip Oils.

Westman Atelier Squeaky Clean Lip Liquid Balm Snowy

Westman Atelier Squeaky Clean Lip Liquid Balm Rudey

Westman Atelier The Squeaky Clean Vault

I really like the set and most of the colors. The lighter shades pull really sheer, especially the two sparkly ones – if they had more pigment or sparkle color payoff I would have absolutely 100% loved it. Parla and Snowy still give the lips that glassy gloss shine which I think is pretty – would have liked to see more pigment.

Whether or not it’s for you depends on if you can see yourself wearing all the shades or if you think it’s worth the splurge. It can be difficult to justify a set if you don’t like all the colors. I think it’s lovely and would make a great WOW gift. That being said if you only like certain shades I think you can find dupes in other lines.

If you’ve been eyeing this set I hope the swatches help you! I have a review of the Petal Edition Set here along with swatches of all the Baby Cheeks and other Squeaky Clean Lip Balms I own.

Natasha Denona My Dream Collection Swatches + Review

November 7, 2022

Natasha Denona My Dream Palette Collection

Natasha Denona continues to be one of the best makeup lines for beautiful innovative palettes and colors. I love that she brings us so many beautiful unique launches – so much thought and care goes into her creations. Her new My Dream Collection has beautiful tones and textures. Today I have some swatches and a review of the items. Today’s the last day of the Sephora Holiday Savings event. If you’re looking for makeup that’s new (rather than repeats) definitely check her collection out.

I have swatches and a review but didn’t have time to shoot makeup looks for this launch. I still wanted to get the swatches up for you. I put up a poll on my Instagram stories and even though this collection launched weeks ago most of you still wanted swatches.

Natasha Denona My Dream Palette Collection

My Dream Eyeshadow Palette

Natasha Denona My Dream Palette

The Natasha Denona My Dream Eyeshadow Palette ($69) is absolutely stunning. I think it’s one of the best most unique palettes of the year. I’ve played with this a few times and you can create a wide range of looks. Every single shade applies beautifully. I love that she always has a great mix of textures: mattes, shimmers, sparkles, duo chromes. Some of her palettes are a little too trendy for my personal style. This one is on trend but has a good mix of colors that even conservative makeup lovers can wear it.

The palette has 13 new shades and 2 repromotes:

  • Famila is a warm dark brown
  • Babies is a stunning metallic mauve sparkle
  • Carpe-Diem is a warm matte brown
  • Serenity is a smooth shimmery taupe
  • Aspiration is a matte ultra deep cool brown
  • Blackest Black is a matte black
  • Instinct is a magenta satin
  • Thrill is a sparkling champagne
  • Unity is a matte warm terracotta peach
  • Risk is a beautiful smooth metallic reddish plum
  • Invention is a sparkle topper with a orange bronze finish
  • Vision is a duochrome violet green pink nude
  • Edgy is a purple eggplant satin
  • Spontaneous is a shimmering champagne
  • Nurture is a matte cool brown

Natasha Denona My Dream Palette swatches

Colors layer beautifully. Combinations are endless. Color range is amazing with light shades, medium shades, deep shades, bold pops. Absolutely love.

My Dream Cheek Trio

Natasha Denona My Dream Cheek Trio

Natasha Denona’s My Dream Cheek Trio ($48) is a beautiful palette I think will suit a wide range of skin tones. It has a Cream Blush which is a dusty neutral-cool pink (has a velvety finish), Glow Cream Base (shimmery creamy nude that melts into the skin, has fine shimmer) and Dream Glow Highlighter (another shimmery champagne, gel to powder finish). I think all three are beautiful and very easy to wear. The highlighters have a very similar vibe to her other cheek products. I still think this is a beautiful one you can wear this holiday for a polished effortless look.

Natasha Denona My Dream Cheek Trio

Colors apply beautifully and have very good pigment. They’re easy to layer and blend. They don’t emphasize my pores or skin texture. Love that the highlighters can also be used on the eyes.

My Dream Lipstick, Lip Gloss, Lip Pencil

Natasha Denona My Dream Lipstick, Lip Gloss and Lip Pencil

The last three items I have swatched are for the lips. My Dream Lipstick ($27) is a neutral cool mauve pink that’s super creamy and opaque. My Dream Lip Gloss ($27) has a beautiful smooth texture in a neutral mauve pink with medium coverage and a tiny bit of shimmer. My Dream Lip Crayon ($24) is an ultra pigmented long-wear lip pencil in a nude mauve color.

Natasha Denona My Dream Collection Lip swatches

Texture and pigment-wise all three are beautiful and excellent in quality. Unfortunately the colors did not work on my medium olive complexion. They have a bit too much grey undertone to work for my pigmented lips and tan skin. I think these would be super flattering on cool skin tones or light-fair complexions.

Overall a beautiful collection with lots to love. Out of all her palettes my favorites are still her Glam and Biba Palettes. The new My Dream Collection Palette is truly unique though so if you’re one looking for something new and innovative, this is the palette to try.

I have a quick roundup of what I hauled from the Sephora sale below. You can click on each item to shop directly from Sephora if you’re interested! I also bought this Hourglass Brush Set (not featured in the collage).

Did you shop the Sephora sale? What are you the most excited about?

Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini Glam to Go Eyeshadow Palette

November 2, 2022

Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini Glam to Go Eyeshadow Palette

I hauled a few things from the Sephora Sale and one of my favorites is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini Glam to Go Eyeshadow Palette ($29). I love the Mini Soft Glam II (reviewed here) so I knew I would love the new one. I also have a look at a couple lip items and blushes I hauled in today’s post.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini Glam to Go Eyeshadow Palette

The Mini Glam to Go Eyeshadow Palette has 8 shades in a small compact. I love the colors, texture and pigment. It has a mix of shimmers, mattes and a sparkle shade. The overall color theme is pink and plum with a good balance of neutrals mixed in. Shadows are soft and blend beautifully.

Shades include:

  • Pretty is a shimmery light mauve
  • Dawn is a matte soft tan
  • Sunburst is a shimmery peach
  • Softy is a medium rose peach
  • Sunset is a warmer tan
  • Fireworks is a gorgeous plum taupe gold shimmer
  • Rosey is a reddish matte brown
  • Dusk is a deeper brown

Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini Glam to Go Eyeshadow Palette swatches

Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini Glam to Go Eyeshadow Palette

Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Blush Sticks

I’ve also accumulated a few of the Stick Cream Blushes ($32 each) which I think are lovely. The shades are really flattering and easy to wear. They blend out to a very natural finish but you can build pigment. They don’t have a powdery dry-down but I like that they’re not super dewy. Lasting power isn’t going to be all day since it’s a cream but they have decent lasting power. I like that there’s a brush on one end making it easy for touch ups on the go.

So far I have:

  • Latte is a light nude pink (almost my skin tone)
  • Peachy Keen is a pretty fresh peach
  • Pink Dahlia is a bright pink (but blends out more sheer)
  • Soft Rose is a brown rose pink
  • Bubblegum is hard to see in the swatch but it’s a really pretty pink gold shimmer

There’s lots to love in the ABH lip world. I did a post of my haul here a while back of the Lipsticks and Lip Liners. I recently picked up Lipstick in Rose Dream (really pretty rose) and Lip Gloss in Peachy (almost clear base loaded with peach, pink and gold shimmers).

Overall love. I think the Glam to Go Palette is a great one to wear for everyday. Especially love that it’s a pink toned palette that doesn’t pull too pink or warm.

If you’re more into neutrals and neutral-cool tones Makeup by Mario launched his new Ethereal Eyes Eyeshadow Palette (just ordered and will try to swatch/review before the Sephora sale ends). The Natasha Denona Glam Palette and Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadow Quad in Exaggereyes are also in my top picks for true neutral eyeshadow palettes.
