YSL · Tatouage Couture Velvet Cream

YSL recently launched Tatouage Couture Velvet Cream liquid lipsticks and ridiculously long name aside, I’m actually surprised by how much I’m liking the formula. Of course, the gorgeous packaging had something to do with it, but in the end it was the “velvet” part that hooked me.

NARS · Orgasm X Collection

Back in 1999, François Nars caused quite the stir in the beauty world with the release of the provocatively named Orgasm blush and now 21 years later, he’s taking things up a notch with the launch of the Orgasm X Collection.

Charlotte Tilbury · Pillow Talk Collection

From the day Charlotte Tilbury launched her eponymously named range, one product struck a chord with everyone who tried it, and that was the Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk — a “universally flattering” nude-pink hue that just works on all. Like magic. Recognizing this incredible appeal, it was only natural that an entire collection would be spawned around this shade … and I for one am so glad of that.
