Charlotte Tilbury Lipsticks: My Five Favourites

30 March, 2016 Charlotte Tilbury Lipsticks: My Five Favourites

From their chic copper bullets to the luxurious formulas, Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks scream Hollywood glamour. I love keeping a selection in my handbag for mid-day top-ups, and as I recently received two limited edition shades from my wonderful boyfriend (who clearly knows me rather well), I thought I’d share my five favourites from her collection. There’s an even spread across her K.I.S.S.I.N.G and Matte Revolution lines, with both ranges offering stunning shades, textures and tones to suit the majority of all ages and skin colours.

First up is my original introduction to Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks: Nude Kate (£23).  Described as ‘the perfect beige nude’, it’s a rock-chick take on a barely-there neutral, and a fantastic colour to wear with a deeper mauve liner. I like my nudes to be glossy, and the K.I.S.S.I.N.G  formula offers it in spades – there is a slight pearlescent sheen, the colour is rich and opaque, and it stays satisfyingly tacky and creamy on the lips for 3-5 hours.

Next is the limited edition Kiss Chase (£23), again described by C. Tizzle as a ‘tawny berry’. This was part of her most recent Valentines’ Day launch, and one of the shades my boo bought me. It’s such a beautiful deep pink, with just a hint of red. Although it looks quite intense in the bullet, it’s actually quite wearable, and goes perfectly with a warm gold shade on the lid, and neutral cheeks. Again, this is part of the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range, so is quite moisturising.

From the Matte Revolution line, we have the super-chic Very Victoria (£23), a ‘suede taupe-nude’. It’s the kind of colour that looks a bit ‘meh’ in the bullet, but is so lovely when applied on the lips. It has hints of pink, mauve and brown, and the comfortable-matte formula makes lips look full and pouty. I love this with a tan, although I think on very fair skin, this would look SO striking.

A slightly deeper shade is Bond Girl (£23), a pretty ‘natural plum-berry’, that has become my go-to shade for nights out. It’s deep, glamorous, and it creates a wine-stain effect on the lips, which gradually fades throughout the evening. It’s one of my favourite shades to take on holiday as it looks fab on pale or tanned skin, and the long-wearing formula means you don’t need to constantly reapply.

Last (but not least) is the delicate, powder-pink Between The Sheets (£23). This shade is unfortunately sold out, but it was readily available since the beginning of the year. I have a bunch of similar shades in my collection, andWet N Wild’s Think Pink is a pretty close dupe. It’s a great shade for everyday, paired with a neutral liner, tinted moisturiser and lots of mascara. The matte formula works well with lighter colours, and it’s just so comfy on the lips that you hardly notice it!

    I only have one shade from the CT Matte lipstick range but would love to get more soon. Between The Sheets looks like my kind of shade, such a shame it’s an exclusive & LE one though x
