  • *Tom Ford Shade & Illuminate Lips in Impulse (all shades swatched and reviewed HERE): I wear Impulse multiple times a week…a perfect nude with enough depth for all skin tones. So good.
  • *Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro (formula reviewed HERE): This velvety, ultra-pigmented formula is hydrating and long lasting while making lips look full and plush. 
  • *GrandeLIPS Lip Plumper (reviewed HERE): I appreciate the immediate and long-term effects of this plumper and the glossy pigmentation is an additional bonus!
  • *Stellar Dark Matter: A beautiful dusky nude with marvelous opacity and a hydrating texture…unique amongst my vast collection of neutrals. 
  • *Tom Ford Soleil Lip Balm in Neotropic (reviewed HERE): My absolute favorite shade from this range of clutch-sized balms, Neotropic is a mood-lifting coral orange that effortlessly esonates with the warmer months. 
  • Dior Rouge Rose Caprice (reviewed HERE): A cool lilac pink, this shade creates an impact in a single coat. 
  • Guerlain Kiss Kiss in Lady Pink (reviewed HERE): Pearly and pigmented, this peachy pink is forever in my purse…every time I wear it (which is frequently), someone asks me what is on my lips!

    Yippee Skippy!
    It's the most wonderful time the year!
    I am filling my cart with skincare then I'll head to the store tomorrow to do some swatching. I am always up for new foundations and concealer.
    Thanks for the fabulous and detailed recommendations.

    – That KGD foundation is magic! It's challenging to find lighter, truly olive-toned shades, so I like to mix it with the Armani Luminous Silk #6 in the previous post when in between my summer and winter shades. Both are some of the most truly skin-like foundations, and it's no surprise that they get a lot of love in front of the camera. (KGD is used on Dancing with the Stars and supposedly certain actresses would buy the Armani LSF for the makeup artist on set to use if s/he didn't have it in the kit.)

    – Surratt Chaleur is my everything – especially when I'm feeling lazy or rushed! Instead of applying blush and bronzer, I just put that stuff on and it magically perks up a variety of skin tones.

    – I'm really surprised you didn't mention the Burberry Nude Radiance No. 01 Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base in spite of mentioning the foundation and concealer. I would say the Fresh Glow is the most goof proof highlight, as using it to get radiant looking skin takes way less precision than most highlighters. Sometimes on a good skin day I'll make it even better by just putting the Fresh Glow on my foundationless face 🙂
