Charlotte Tilbury is a brand that I’ve had my little make up obsessed eye on for the longest time.
When I went to London the other week, I hit Selfridges Beauty Hall and picked up a few items from the line. I had a list as long as my arm and came away with this cheeky lip combo!
Can I just firstly comment on the spectacularly beautiful packaging? J’adore. I do love me some classic packaging. You’ll see what I mean when my palette review goes live!
After reading many rave reviews about the Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk, that swiftly came home with me – in fact it was the first thing I picked up. I’m not usually a lip liner kinda gal but this isn’t just an ol’ lip liner – oh no! It’s a re-shaping and re-sizing product of pure joy!
As outlined below, just using this pencil softly around the cupids bow (or my lack thereof) adds instant, obvious improvement to the lips. It’s truly a magical product, my lips have never looked fuller with such little effort.
The pencil is a very natural, slightly pink shade which suits my lip colour perfectly whilst adding that subtle additional depth. The texture of the product is soft but with a good amount of grip, meaning that the lip liner stays exactly where you put it. No questions asked.
I think the photos speak for themselves right?
To finish the combo I needed a lipstick (of course)! I had a little swatch here and a little swatch there and decided on the K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Bitch Perfect which is quite frankly the best name for a lipstick, ever. The formula is pretty special too – I’d say it lies somewhere between a matte and a satin as it’s extremely long lasting but has that slight, light enhancing sheen to it that really makes the lips pop. The shade I got compliments the Lip Cheat perfectly, it’s just slightly deeper in colour. Again, it’s a very natural, enhanced colour which makes for the perfect slightly pink toned nude.
I’m absolutely smitten with this combo, so much so that I’ve been wearing it a hell of a lot since I picked it up. I’ve got my eye on the new Matte Revolution Lipstick line as well.
Have you tried anything from Charlotte Tilbury?
Love, Kate xo
