Its tough not to like Thandie Newton. She is smart, sexy and is a great actress ! I like her; So does famous Makeup Artist Julie Hewett. And that's why she named this brilliant shade after Thandie Newton. It also happens to be a shade the actress really likes ! Same here, Thandie -I adore the shade too ! May be we could meet up for coffee and talk beauty forever ! I know I'd love that !

Thandie is a lipstick that dresses up any outfit ! I was meeting my friend at Subway for a late night dinner and the moment she saw my lipstick she asked " What's the occasion ? Its only Subway !" That's the effect it has ! I have written about several shades that look good on a variety of skin tones. But this one is a shade that will look brilliant on almost everybody ! It makes any occasion a special one. Okay so what exactly is the shade ? A sheer red with hints of gold. Now tell me, if that aint classy ...what is !!

NOTE FOR DESI GIRLS : Remember we talked about lipsticks that go with Desi clothes ? You can find a bunch of them here. But Thandie tops it all. Womenfolk will gather around wondering what it is you are wearing coz its so gorgeous. Trust me , will ya ! If there is one thing I know - its lipsticks.

I have yet to find a Julie Hewett lippie or cheekie that does not suit Indian skin. I have gem, oona, film and nude noir. Jules, Celeste and Kiki from the Bijou Collection. Mimi, Harlow, Bardot and Sophia. And sadly I own all the cheekies ... is that an obsession or what :).

Putting Thandie, Scarlett and Chloe on my list

Whoa Whoa Whoa ! This is MAJOR ! Maaayjooooooooooorr ! Please gimme a moment to recover.

Okay. Better now, I think. Wow, girl that's awesome ! I got all their noirs during my red obsession phase. I am so thankful for that phase coz that's when I discovered JH. I remember the first time I laid my eyes on the golden tube - love. When did u first discover JH ?
I am perpetually obsessed with Julie Hewett. They are one of the best boutique make up brands ever ! Everything they make is so special...
And no, owning all cheekies is not sad. Its bloody brilliant ! Temme more...

I discovered JH searching for what else " a red lip". I hate ... no wait abhor going to the makeup counters because most makeup artists put me in very dark shades a.k.a maroon or brown( ick ick ick ) with the exception of the lovely ladies at NARS and Chanel at NM in NorthPark. Great stuff and awesome SA but I really dont like the "glitter" I know its supposed to be shimmer but to me its gliter. JH looked like it wasnt glittery plus they had sheer formulas. Once I tried my first lippie it was love . Absolutely love how smooth and moisturizing the lipstick and glosses are too. Hands down the best formula, it beats even Three Custom Color

I have recently branched into their palettes ... I have Twilight thanks to your review and Poppy, along with Cleo/Goldie shimmy.

Ok I admit I need JH and lipstick addiction therapy because I am online tempted to order more stuff ... esp the ginger loose blush.


Still waiting on the Lipstick Queen order to arrive for the Thriller swatch

Btw have you tried Chantecaille? That is another brand I have lipstick obsession with. I learnt about that brand from makeupforprofessionalasianwomen's blog

Sunitha :
JH beat 3C any day as far as lipstick go ! 3C have their concealer right. I'll give em that ! And OMG Twlight. What a palette ! I feel like the model in Armani Code for Women adverts whenever I have that black shade on (which is not very often at all) Mysterious... even if its only me whoz saying it ;)
