Charlotte Tilbury Makeup...

I’ve been watching Wayne’s channel for a while and find him to be one of the more genuine people on YouTube. He doesn’t seem to be the type of person who woukd put his reputation on the line to sell some products. It could be as simple as he found products he like more than DE. Been there done that - can’t tell you how many products(makeup, hair products, skin care) I’ve loved and were ‘holy grails’ until a few months later when my new holy grail came along.
For my taste there is a bit too much coincidence with Wayne. If a blogger/Youtuber hypes a whole product line just before it launches in Europe, it is a bit suspicious. :violin: As I said above, I don't mind product endorsement, but I want to see more integrity. I don't think any big YouTuber really looses their reputation anymore as all are doing the same PR game.
I agree with you that holy grail products change over time, but not too the extent that we see on social media.

One a side note: I still love my Drunk Elephant products.

Got an email from CT today. The Pillow Talk quad and blush is permanent with 'early VIP access' starting today. I know alot of people missed out on this the first time around. The quad is a nice palette but I wouldn't repurchase it. The blush is gorgeous! I highly recommend that.

Is the eyeshadow in that palette really that pink looking? It looks like in the all the example photos.

It's pink but not too pink - does that make sense? There is a mauve, brown shade (bottom right shade) that saves it from being too pink. I think it's a nice quad for spring. Using that mauve/brown shade on the lid makes for a soft smokey eye.

Good to know. I have been debating whether to get it. I have been wondering how close it is to Exaggereyes. It looks like it is close but I love the idea of matching products.

I have both. IMO, Exaggereyes is the more neutral of the two, Pillowtalk is more pink. I agree that they are close but when I look at them side by side, you can see the differences. I prefer Exaggereyes.

I got the ES palette today & I LOVE it! I used the mauve brown lower right shade over the lid, the lighter shade in corner & over pupil & the kind of shimmery shade mid to outer crease. It was so pretty! Also. I used the new Becca highlighter XO darker shade over my lid & then the slight pink shade - top right - in the crease. Super pretty & really made my eyes pop. I'm very happy that I bought it.

I'm so glad you like it! With the exception of adding the Becca, that's how I wear it on my lid. I love the mauve brown shade. Did you get the blush?

Yes, I bought 2 of the blushes when they first launched. I gave one to my DIL for Christmas. I'm happy with all of it. :heart:

Received the pillow talk pallet and blush. They are both very pretty much nicer in person than pictures. I like the look!

On another note... my skin felt so dry, from the cold and indoor heat. So I tried a sample of the magic night cream. Wow it really made a huge difference and helped my skin feel better. I don’t like the smell, and the texture is very balmy and thick. But it was a nice result in the morning!

Good to hear. I didn't like the smell or texture of that cream either. But, if it worked for your skin, that's all that matters.

My Sephora has the new icon collection available so I picked up the new eyeshadow palette and a liquid liploss in Berry Nude. The shadows must be a different formula and my first impression is they are amazing. Much more pigmented than her usual shadows. They feel like her cream eye shadows in a powder formula. I can't wait to try some of the other colors in the palette.

I am SO SO disappointed in the liquid lipstick/gloss. I love the color, the texture, how it applies BUT there is patchouli oil in this. The scent is overwhelming not only can you smell it when inhaling through your nose, you can taste it when you inhale, eat or drink. It's so bad that I have to wipe it off. I can't wear this again and I can't return it. I purchased it with my $100 rewards gift card that I got for cashing in my points.

I highly recommend the palette but would suggest trying on the lipstick before purchasing. My guess is the scent will be offputting for most people.
