Heavenly Creature is a light peachy nude with a matte texture that still leans creamy. It is paler than First Time (reviewed HERE) and will work well on fair to light skin tones seeking a flattering, true 1960’s lip effect. It is a touch too light for me currently, but should be perfect by dead of winter. In the meanwhile, I will use it to “nudify” lip color shades that are too dark.
Bad Lieutenantis slightly deeper mauve-tinged nude that is chic and sophisticated. When I saw it in the bullet, I was concerned that it would be too dark for my personal preference, but I’m delighted at how wearable it is. I will be recommending it to anyone seeking a fresh foray into Tom Ford nude lip color.
Paper Dollis my unequivocal favorite of the trio. The cool rosy shade is the quintessential depth for a baby pink lip–not too light, nor too dark–and the creamy color payoff is divine. If you love light pinks as I do, then Paper Doll should possess a necessary place in your collection!
To make the essentially matte eyeshadows more luminous, I like to buff a bit of the iconic Bar of Gold highlighter (step 7 in the palette) atop the shadow; it creates an ethereal look that still is entirely appropriate for a daytime look.
As aforementioned in my initial post on Smoky Eye Beauty, the two cheek color options are true standouts in the palette. The neutral pink blush and coordinating glow tones enliven one’s complexion, delivering a subtle wash of color that looks incredibly natural.
