This is my first lipstick purchase from Charlotte Tilbury after finally taking the plunge and parted with my money. I did buy the sculpting brush which was quite disappointing (review here) but I knew that the make-up was better in quality and looked a bit more promising. I was debating between another shade 'Sexy Sienna' which was also a pretty everyday colour but leaning more towards a coral shade but in the end I chose this one because my boyfriend preferred this colour when I swatched them on my hand.
The price of these lipsticks are quite steep which is why I have been put off buying Charlotte Tilbury products for a while so I really did have high expectations for this. The unique shape of the lipstick made application really easy and I found that the product just glides onto my lips effortlessly. The matte finish it gave was just perfect and it wasn't drying at all considering my lips tend to be very dry and chapped. The opacity was great and I found that one swipe was enough to achieve my desired colour. The colour really compliments my skintone very well and instantly makes me look more awake. However, I did find that the lasting power of this lipstick was a bit poor considering it started to wear off after 1-2 hours but using a lipliner underneath definitley helped with the longevity.
Overall, a great lipstick and definitley a luxury splurge considering there are many other similar colours and formulations within the drugstore if you searched hard enough. I really adore the rose gold packaging of Charlotte Tilbury products and I think that price reflects the quality of the product therefore hopefully I will be adding more CT products in my collection soon.
