It’s way too easy to get sucked into Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick. That shiny, feminine rose gold bullet is so stunning that simply pulling it out of your handbag or seeing it on your vanity makes you feel extra special. I’m a sucker for pretty packaging, so naturally, I was drawn to the brand. Over the past several years, my Charlotte Tilbury collection has grown to include quite a variety of her products. My recent brand review is here if you’d like to see my thoughts on the best and worst from the Charlotte Tilbury line. Since I’ve acquired six Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks over the past year and love every single one of them, I wanted to share them with you.
There are currently three categories in the Charlotte Tilbury lipstick collection: K.I.S.S.I.N.G, Hot Lips and Matte Revolution.
For her K.I.S.S.I.N.G. formula, Charlotte uses extracts from her exclusive Lipstick Tree that protect lips from UV damage & oxidative stress to leave them hydrated and soft. These lipsticks have light-diffusing pigments to give a multi-dimensional effect that leaves them looking fuller and more supple. This is my favorite Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick formula. I love how creamy it is and how hydrated it makes my lips feel.
This formula contains both Lipstick Tree & orchid extracts to hydrate, soften and protect lips so your lips stay soft, younger looking and healthy. The 3D glowing pigments create a lit-from-within illusion that makes lips appear wider and fuller. A blend of triglycerides, oils and waxes helps pigment glide onto the lips and last a long time.
Charlotte’s Hot Lips line includes both her Matte Revolution and K.I.S.S.I.N.G. formulas. It features 12 iconic lipstick shades featuring some of the world’s most inspiring celebrity women.
REVIEWS AND SWATCHES
BITCH PERFECT (K.I.S.S.I.N.G)
Bitch Perfect is not only my favorite Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick, it’s also one of my favorite nude lipsticks of all time. I will definitely be repurchasing this one! It’s the most beautiful, muted nude with peach, warm undertones. I find this to be a super flattering nude on many people. Because it’s cut with peach, you don’t get the dead look many nude lipsticks give. It goes with everything from daytime looks to smokey eyes.
Kim KW (Hot Lips)
I can’t recall if Kim KW was sent to me or if I ordered this one. This is what you think of when you think of “nude lips’ ala Kim Kardashian. It’s true to the shade she made famous. This is a light nude that still has a bit of pink and peach in it so it doesn’t completely wash you out. But since It’s a bit too pale for my own personal taste, I do like to wear a lip liner under it.
Super Cindy (Hot Lips)
When I first bought Super Cindy, I thought it might be too orange for my taste. But it’s really a great warm medium nude with an almost coral undertone that’s not coral (you’ll see what I mean as you scroll down). This is a great everyday, go-with-anything, staple lipstick shade. Perfect to throw on for work, for a party…with jeans, with a dress…the staple anytime-anywhere lipstick that everyone needs.
Coachella Coral (K.I.S.S.I.N.G)
Charlotte Tilbury Coachella Coral is the most stunning creamy coral with a pink undertone. If you like corals in the spring/summer, you should definitely pick this one up! I can’t get enough of this one when the weather turns warm!
Bond girl (Matte Revolution)
I don’t wear deep lipsticks often. So when I saw how deep Bond Girl was, I automatically thought I would’t wear this one. But it’s surprisingly wearable! I find this to be true with all of the lipsticks I’ve ever tested or tried from her line. There’s something about them that’s just flattering. Bond Girl is a natural muted berry without being bright or too deep. It’s subtle and beautiful and a perfect shade for fall.
Walk of Shame (Matte Revolution)
Walk of Shame is another Charlotte Tilbury deep shade that I didn’t think I’d like but ended up loving. I’d describe it as a muted rosy red with slight berry undertones. It’s actually a great shade to wear if you’re a bit gun shy about wearing red lipstick but want to move in that direction with something that’s a bit more muted. I love that I can wear this to work or out at night and it’s perfectly appropriate for either occasion.
I thought I’d throw in the two Lip Cheats I have as well. I love and wear both shades regularly to even out my lip line, make my lips look fuller and to fill them in lightly before going in with my lip product. I show a demo in this video. Iconic Nude is used with my neutral/nude/brown-toned lipsticks while Pillow Talk is used with my pink and rose lipstick shades.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Swatches and this break down of my current lipsticks! Let me know in the comments below which ones are your favorite and if you’ll be buying any soon!
