Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G ‘Penelope Pink’ Lipstick

I finally popped my Charlotte Tilbury cherry the other week! I know! ‘Forever behind the times’ should be tattooed on my forehead! I will be posting a haul on that soon. This afternoon I just have time to write a short post while Finn has a nap and the weather is lovely and stormy outside! I’m so Hygge right now! And I have no idea if I used that word in the correct way. (I’m leaving it there though without googling it) because it made me laugh! Basically, I’m cosy and in the mood to chat about my new lipstick.




Firstly, the packaging! Sleek, Classy, Rose Gold perfection which I really enjoy pulling out of my handbag for touch ups.

MAC Modesty Cremesheen Lipstick~ The Perfect Nude


MAC has always had my heart when it comes to lipstick. I don’t know whether it’s a nostalgia thing, or if it’s just because they are that damn good. I do know that the vanilla scent plays a huge role in it! My first MAC lipstick was ‘Blankety,’ which is one that lives on the underrated list. ‘Modesty’, I feel, sits right beside it.

MAC Modesty 1

I bought ‘modesty’ with the intention of using it for my Brides. Over time it has slowly made its way into my makeup bag. I find it to be the perfect easy to wear colour. It makes me feel put together without being overly ‘done’ for a day most likely spent hanging out with a 2-year-old.

MAC describes ‘Modesty’  as a muted neutral Pink. In these pictures, I see that. But in real life, it leans more towards a Dusty Rose/Brown nude shade. At least it does on my lips. It is such a versatile nude in that it can pull a natural, everyday makeup look together and stand out, while also being a shade that can take a back seat and compliment a full on smokey eye! I love that!

I know that everyone is about the mattes these days, but I still love the comfort of a cremesheen! And while this might not have the staying power of a matte, I can definitely handle popping such a pretty colour in my bag and reapplying after a few hours.

Do you have a favourite from the MAC ‘underrated’ lipstick list?


Still loving… the 90’s nude….

AKA the lip colour that drove me crazy as a teenager, why? Because back in the 90’s it was impossible to get your hands on an actual nude colour lipstick that wasn’t some shade of Brown in the drugstore.

As I was a tween from the countryside and had yet to discover the delights of the MAC lipstick stand (you should have seen how fast the shade ‘Blankety’ was in my kung fu grip when I did!) It felt like I was forever on the hunt for my perfect creamy pale nude.

Nowadays we are lucky enough to have an abundance of nude shades available.From Tom Ford to Tesco. So finally, I can make my peace with the 90’s nude lip and admit that it actually is a look that I am loving at the moment!

In particular this combination, essence lip liner- ‘in the nude’ (top swatch) for the price (less than £3.)

I’m really impressed with the creamy formula and longevity of this lip liner. That aside and back to the 90’s, this is the perfect tawny brown liner for a 90’s nude either worn all over the lips or paired up with my recent love (bottom swatch)


 Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet ‘Nude-ist’    

 Ahhhh if ever there was a time I was happy to be a bandwagon hopper then it’s every time I see my reflection and this perfect pinky-brown nude beauty is on my lips!

Quick hats off to the formula, a liquid lipstick with a matte finish that packs some serious pigment and sticks around for hours!

I won’t go too much more into detail but if you haven’t tried one of these then let me give you a gentle nudge towards your local Boots 😉

This is definitely my most worn lip combination of late and can see it continuing to be a favourite for the remaining winter months!

Are you loving 90’s nudes?
