Three Must Haves from the Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkinson Collection...an Image-Heavy Closeup

After sharing an overview of the LE Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkinson Collection at the end of June (HERE) and offering a sneak peek of some of my procurements in my June Favorites video, I am now beyond thrilled to be able to share a bevy of images focused on my three must-haves from the collection.

Kindly scroll on for more details, closeups, swatches and images of the products in action as well as the Bottom Line...
Above: Inside the On-Call Makeup Bag.

(1) The On-Call Makeup Bag (also pictured at start of post) is made of a quality water-resistant material that feels relatively impervious to the perils of makeup stains.  The interior has a smart divider for greater organization of products...brilliant!

(2) The Dreamy Glow Highlighter is utterly lovely.  The gossamer-smooth and finely-milled powder lends an ethereal luminosity to the skin.  This highlighter is incredibly subtle for a believable "lit from within" effect; the powder could best be described as a golden champagne hue...it has a touch more beige than the "glow" side of the Bronze and Glow and creates a gentle warmth that is endlessly flattering.  So glad I chose this!

Above: Back matter.

(3) The Matte Revolution Lipstick in Miss Kensington is my first lip color from the Matte Revolution line.  The texture is like velvet and it glides onto the lips with little to no drag; although it has "matte" in its moniker, the formula feels light and hydrating while still offering remarkable pigmentation.  Best described as a "light peachy pink nude," this is a touch more pale than B*tch Perfect and has less beige than Penelope Pink and Nude Kate.  It sum, it just may be my favorite lipstick shade thus far from the Charlotte Tilbury line. Miss Kensington is an imperative procurement for nude lovers everywhere!

Bottom Line:  I hope you enjoyed this overview of my selections from the Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkinson Collection.  I also plan on picking up the creamy Filmstar Bronze and Glow in Sun Tan and Sun Light next, especially now that it's available on its own!  In light of how quickly the original powder version initially sold out, this is taking my "musts" from three to four in a flash.  

The Charlotte Tilbury x Norman Parkinson collection is currently available at charlottetilbury.com and will be available on July 9, 2015 at Bergdorf Goodman and on July 23, 2015 at NordstromNet-a-Porter and Beautylish.  What do YOU have your eye on?

Good things ahead, including a fresh style-centric post and my comprehensive Nordstrom Anniversary Sale shopping guide, slated to go live on Thursday, June 9th...in the meanwhile, here are some important dates to keep in mind:
