I wanted to share with you this lip colour by Charlotte Tilbury! This is the first item I’ve bought of her products, and I will definitely be returning. She doesn’t have a huge collection, which I like because it makes choosing a whole lot easier!
(Not my lips, although I wish they were!)
This particular lipstick is called Walk Of Shame, and is a berry tinted rose colour. It’s a really deep colour, and I love it against my pale skin! This is part of the Matte Revolution collection, in which Charlotte has aimed to create a range of 10 lipsticks that are long-lasting, hydrating, and with a buildable formula. They’re enriched with lipstick tree extract which protects lips and acts as a natural anti-oxidant. Plus, there’s orchard extract which soothes and hydrates for a soft, buildable cashmere look.
The colour is so easy to apply, and is so soft with a beautiful smell. I don’t usually wear matte lipsticks, but with this I really don’t feel like I’m wearing matte. You can see from the picture that there is a subtle glitter to this colour, which not only makes your lips look nourished and glowing, but also makes them look a lot fuller, without looking caked on in make up!
If you’re not sure whether you’ll like this, go to a counter (I bought mine in Selfridges) and try out some of the colours. The staff are really helpful, and weren’t overbearing, which was very refreshing!
There’s a nude colour called Kissing Hepburn Honey I’d love to get my hands on now!
