Charlotte Tilbury is one of my favourite brands – there’s such a wide range of wonderful products and I honestly think it’s one of the best all round brands out there. So, when Charlotte releases new collections I get super excited. So, with today’s release of the new Hot Lips collection it was inevitable I’d make a cheeky purchase. Now, I would have picked up more colours but I would have easily got carried away.
What are Hot Lips I hear you cry? Well, some of CT’s lipsticks are already named after famous faces she often works with and she has now added a further 12 shades to her existing collection.
A £1 from every sale (for the first 2 months) goes to the Women for Women International which supports women affected by war. I do wish more was donated as the lipsticks are £23.
I settled on two shades with different formulas and it was a hard decision because there were so many beautiful shades to choose from.
Starting with the lightest of the two and what I suspect will be the first to sell-out. The K.I.S.S.I.N.G Fallen from the Lipstick Tree in Kim KW (£23) which as you can guess is inspired by Kim Kardashian West. This is a gorgeous soft pink toned nude that is classic KKW. When I opened the packaging I was worried it would be too light but actually it’s the perfect shade. The formula is hydrating and smooth with a slight sheen but good pigmentation.
I picked up the Matte Revolution Lipstick in Miranda May (£23) which is a beautiful coral shade that is on the side of pink/red. It’s not my usual shade at all but there was something about it that I was really drawn to. It’s actually really flattering! The formula is wonderful, as with the other CT matte shades. They’re matte but not drying and give the lips a fuller but more 3D look and don’t look flat like other mattes can. This shade was inspired by supermodel Miranda Kerr.
I’m thoroughly impressed with these lipsticks and I can definitely see myself picking up some more shades in the future.
Hot Lips are £23 each and are available exclusively at CharlotteTilbury.com and her Covent Garden store from today!
Will you be picking up any of these new shades?
Love, Kate xo
