After lusting over the beautiful Charlotte Tilbury Lip products and having a good detailed browse of the different shades via online swatches, I decided on purchasing the nude toned shades which are easy to wear and great for day to day make-up looks.
I chose a lipliner in Pink venus as opposed to pillow talk as I feel that pillow talk was too similar to my favourite Rimmel lipliner east end snob and I wanted something a little bit different. The Charlotte Tilbury Lipliner is very soft and creamy which requires constant sharpening which I do find a hassle sometimes. It applies nicely and although the consistency is quite buttery when applying, I do find that it is drying which is expected as it is a lipliner after all. This shade is wonderful when you want to add that subtle pop of colour to finish off the look making you look more awake.
For the Matte revolution lipticks, I had a very hard time choosing which shades I wanted as I pretty much wanted all of them. I already own Amazing grace (post here) which was so beautiful and lovely to use, therefore directing me to further my collection by purchasing these two lipsticks. Firstly, Miss Kensington was marketed as limited edition and I found the muted pink nude to be very pretty and a shade that I tend to go for making it a must have. A gorgeous nude shade which compliments my skintone very well and I find that it goes well with most of my makeup looks. Next, I chose to purchase Very Victoria as I have been showing an increased interest in the more mauve/brown shades recently. This shade I found adds sophistication to my makeup looks and I really like how it easy it is to pull off this colour and I have really enjoyed using it.
Looking at the colours side by side while taking these pictures, I do feel that these colours are very similar and I could have done by just picking one out of the two. If Miss Kensington wasn't a limited edition, I think I would have given it a miss as the shade is easily dupe-able but having said that, I absolutely love the formulation and comfortable wear of the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks along with their unique bullet. Very Victoria is a more different shade compared with what I usually go for which makes me want to go out of my comfort zone more and try out newer looks.
Have you tried any Charlotte Tilbury products?
