Lipstick in Chili/ Lipstick in Hue/ Paint Pot in Painterly

I had been lusting after these products for so long that last time I was at the counter I didn’t think twice and picked them up. I have been wanting a warm toned red for ages but I did not have a specific one in mind so asking the woman there was the best option. She tried So Chaud on me and even though I liked it (it is on my wishlist now), it was too bright for what I was looking for, so I went for Chili, which is a deeper red but still has that warm undertone to it. Then I asked her if she thought Hue would suit me, one of the cult nude lipsticks from the brand I had tried in the store so many times but always put it down because I found it to be too nude. She did just one swipe with the brush and I was sold. If I build it up it doesn’t look good on me at all, but just one swipe gives me the perfect everyday nude colour. Finally I bought Painterly, a base for eyeshadow since I have very oily eyelids and all eyeshadows crease on me. It is a pinky beige colour which works great under eyeshadows but I have to say I sometimes use a very small amount on its own, nothing else on the lids, to prevent accumulation of foundation and it also works amazing this way.
