Two Peas In A Pod

Every now and again you come across a couple of products that just work so effortlessly together, two peas in a pod. They compliment each other and ultimately are as good together as peanut butter and jelly. 

First is the notorious lipstick Charlotte Tilbury 'Pillow Talk'. I bloomin' love this lipstick, and you can really tell because that's all that is left of it currently I need to repurchase it. Pillow Talk is that pink/nude that is your lips but better, in a comfortable and lip plumping formula. Most days I'll wear it on it's own but ever since picking up Colourpop Ultra Glossy Lip 'Fairy Floss' I have been pairing these two non-stop. Fairyfloss almost has an identical undertone to it so it doesn't really effect the colour Pillow Talk pays off, but instead just adds a beautiful sheen to it and makes your lips look almost that little bit more full. 

On the cheeks I've been pairing Milani Baked Blush 'Luminoso'  and the I Heart Makeup Blushing Hearts Peachy Pink Kiss   for as long as I can remember. Although Luminoso has a natural sheen to it, sometimes if I don't feel like wearing highlighter, I'll opt for a blush topper instead. Peachy Pink Kiss has the similar peach undertone to Luminoso so it just gives it that little bit more life and lift for a more dewy complexion. 

Champagne shimmer eyes are my go-to day to day look, but nothing beats pairing Colourpop Super Shock Shadow 'Super Hard Core'  and my Nars Eyeshadow Duo 'Alhambra'. I use Super Hard Core as a base for pretty much every champagne eye look as it's that little bit tacky to act as a perfect fixer for the shadows to sit on. I either use the left pink-champagne colour on top if I'm going for more of a brightening rose-gold look, or on the right, the beautiful light gold shade. Either shadow works perfectly with Super Hard Core as it makes the shadows last a little bit longer and brighter.

Let me know what two products in your collection go together like Tweedledum and Tweedledee.


  1. I love Alhambra and I recently just bought one two of the blushing hearts - I can't believe it took me so long, they are beautiful x

  2. I have both Pillow Talk and Fairy Floss but I haven't paired them together! Will definitely have to try them x

  3. Love your suggestions! Pillow talk can be a match with pretty much everything. I love matching shades as lipstick and blush and recently i have posted Max Faxtor blush and Modelco lip-gloss combo.

  4. I love finding perfect pairings too and that Charlotte Tilbury and Colourpop one sounds like a dream. Definitely going to have to have to pick up Fairy Floss!
