Charlotte Tilbury Cosmetics

Lately I’ve just felt like I want to throw out all of my cosmetics and start fresh.

Here’s why:

This jumble represents most of what I currently own, but there’s another drawer full of random freebies, missteps and cast-offs that I can’t bear to show.

I grabbed an old lipstick last week and had it on before I realized it smelled bad. Further inspection determined that it was probably waaaay past its expiration date. Ick.

BTW, here’s how you know how long something is good after it’s opened. The first one is 12 months and the second is 24.

I think the lipstick I was referring to above was from approximately 1998. Double eww.

Right now I have my eye on the new cosmetics line from British make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury. 

While I love the idea of having just a few, perfect items, I am perpetually attracted to the next new thing, particularly when there is some faint promise (wishful thinking?) of gorgeousness in the deal.

Here’s what captured my attention.

This pretty lipstick is called “Bitch Perfect.” “Coachella Coral” also received high praise for flattering many different complexions.

Lipgloss! I can’t get enough, which is one of my many problems. This is “Portobello Girl.”

The blush has two colors, the outer for the cheekbones and the center for a pop of color. It’s appropriately titled Cheek to Chic Swish and Pop blush. This color is “Love is the Drug.”

Emerald eyeshadow pencil.

Skin perfecting powder, which I find myself increasingly attracted to given my advancing age. Sigh.

And if you really want to start from scratch, you can get a curated look all at once.
