My MDM Flow lipstick collection & my very own custom colour!

It has certainly been a while since I last shared with you a blog post, so I wanted to make my come back post a good one! Have you heard of MDM Flow and her beautiful collection of lipsticks? If the answer is no, and you love bright vivid colours then I strongly recommend you test these out when you see them.

I was lucky enough to meet Flo on a recent shopping trip to Bath.  She was sat in the Anthropologie store offering customers a unique custom blend lipstick totally made for their requirements.  What more could a lipstick lover like myself wish for?! I was totally submersed in girly heaven for about half an hour while Flo asked what my usual colour was and mixed up a custom blend just for little old me! I was amazed as she blended my colour adding a little more blue, and a little more red until she had it…. the official Pretty Honest Beauty Blog Lipstick! Once I was happy Flo set it in her machine and then popped the bullet in to a pretty gold case.  My Dad was with me at the time, and even he was amazed by Flo’s talent.  I’m so pleased I stumbled across this once in a lifetime chance to have my own lipstick made.  MDM Flow sell a collection of lipsticks and liquid matte lipsticks that are certainly unique.  I have four in my collection so far, Panther a vivid candy pink, Milkshake which is an optical illusion of appearing milky white in the bullet and transforming in to a bright pink that intensifies as you rub your lips together. I also have one of her liquid matte lipsticks in Empire State which is a traffic stopping bold dark plummy pink shade that does not budge and I mean does not budge!!

Below are the swatches of my shades. If you would like to see the look on my lips then just let me know and I will certainly share this with you all!

Top to Bottom:

Panther, Milkshake, The Pretty Honest Blog Lipstick and finally Empire State.

My Charlotte Tilbury Haul!

Charlotte Tilbury Harrods Haul

I only went in for foundation and powder would you believe, but I simply could not resist when seeing them in all there glory!  I am super excited to finally get my hands on these Charlotte Tilbury products.  I have been more than a little obsessed with Charlotte recently, watching her tutorials on YouTube and looking at her website on almost a daily basis! So, on a recent shopping trip I decided to treat myself. And yes, its true; I really did just go in to buy her new magic foundation and powder!

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation and Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder

So lets start with just that. The Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation priced at £29.50 and Airbrush Flawless Finish Powder priced at £33.00   This foundation is hot news in the beauty world right now, and I simply can’t wait to try it out.  I suffer with an oily T-Zone so decided the Flawless Finish Powder was a must have to compliment the foundation.

I then decided to purchase one of Charlotte Tilbury’s ‘Looks’.  Charlotte has created 10 signature ‘Looks’ that enable us to decide who we want to be on any given day! We could be an Uptown Girl on a Monday and a Glamour Muse on a Friday.  I decided the Sophisticate was the look for me.  I thought the tagline for this look was so true ‘Style is always in fashion but fashion is not always in style’.  My makeup goal is to look timeless, chic and classic – so lets hope this set helps me to create just that look!

The price of ‘The Sophisticate’ Look Box is £165 and Included in the box set was:

The Classic Audrey Eyeliner Pencil worth £16

Full Fat Lashes worth £22

Luxury Eyeshadow Palette -The Sophisticate worth £38

Cheek to Chic Sex on Fire Blusher worth £30

Lip Cheat Lipliner in Pillow Talk £16

K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Hepburn Honey £23

Lip Lustre Lipgloss in High Society £16.50

Complimentary Makeup Bag (worth £15)

Charlotte Tilbury The Sophisticate Palette Eyeshadow swatch

The Sophisticate Eyeshadow is absolutely beautiful.  The colours are matte and perfect for an everyday look.  The quality is amazing and the shades blend together effortlessly.  The swatches above from left to right include a colour to prime the lid with, then one to enhance, next is a colour to add some ‘pop’ and finally the final shade is to add a smokey look.  I can see me getting lots of use out of this palette, and I can’t wait to incorporate it into my daily routine.

Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Blusher Sex on Fire swatch

The next product in the box is the Cheek to Chic blusher in Sex On Fire. This beautiful blusher adds a lovely luminosity to the cheeks.  The brighter colour in the middle is intended to add a pop of colour to the apples of our cheeks.  You can see from the swatch how beautiful this colour translates to the skin.

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick Hepburn Honey Swatch Review Lip Cheat, Re-size and Re-Shapr Lipliner in Pillow Talk Review and Swatch and Lip Lustre Lipgloss in High Society

Next up are the products that will give me that perfect lip! K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Hepburn Honey and Lip Cheat, Re-size and Re-Shape Lipliner in Pillow Talk.  To complement these two products is the Lip Lustre Lipgloss in High Society. I am really excited to try these.  The colours are wonderfully neutral and perfect for either everyday use or complimenting a smokey eye. When I came to remove the swatches on my hand they were particularly hard to shift, so I have high hopes for these!  They will no doubt feature in my Lipstick Monday post very soon.  I can’t wait!

Charlotte Tilbury The Classic Eyeliner in Audrey review and swatch and Full Fat Lashes 5 Star Mascara

The final pieces to looking sophisticated! The Classic Eyeliner in Audrey.  A classic soft brown eyeliner that glides effortlessly onto my hand.  This will compliment the eyeshadow palette colours wonderfully.  And finally, the 5 Star Mascara in Glossy Black.  This mascara separates, curls, adds volume, length and drama.  The reviews I have read on this product are pretty impressive.  I can’t wait to give it a go but need to finish my current mascara before I try this one out! Never before have I wanted my mascara to dry up as much as I do right now!

All these products came in a lovely makeup bag complete with lipstick kisses of iconic women such as Kate Moss and Charlotte herself.

Charlotte Tilbury Eyes to Mesmerise in  Jean Swatch

The lovely Charlotte Tilbury makeup artist let me have a complimentary Eyes to Mesmerise shadow in ‘Jean’.  This is a lovely long lasting cream  eyeshadow in a sparkling pink champagne colour.  The makeup artist agreed with me that this would look fabulous with a bold red lip.  I can’t wait to try this out.  Not a product I would usually go for but one that I can’t wait to try.

So there we have it.  My Charlotte Tilbury Haul.  The makeup is every bit as luxurious as I hoped it would be and I can’t wait to try some new looks out with all my lovely new products.

Hope you enjoyed this post, I couldn’t wait to share it with you all!  I would love to hear from you if you have any of the products I have bought and how you find them.

Talk to you all soon x
