Charlotte Tilbury products are one of the most exciting launches that I have seen so far this year. From the distinctive rose gold packaging to the quality of the product it truly is a brand that I’m hoping to explore more of throughout the remainder of the year.
The K.I.S.S.I.N.G Fallen from the Lipstick Tree ‘Bitch Perfect’ Lipstick was a giveaway prize that I won from Aimee a few weeks ago, who also happens to have just started her own YouTube channel so be super awesome and go say hello! I realise that I do state that Charlotte Tilbury products are in rose gold packaging which is actually quite weighty adding of course to the luxurious feel and appearance of the product. Speaking of which in the image above the packaging does appear gold to me rather than it’s more beautiful rose gold sister however I’m not entirely sure why that happened so let’s move swiftly on before I become to embarrassed by my lack of camera skills.
For me Bitch Perfect has tones of pink and coral within it whereby I also feel like it has a very slight brown tone on me which mutes down the overall finish, it is however not noticeable in swatches. I realise that may not sound all that appealing but please bear with me as once applied as it truly is beautiful. If you like your nude shades then this is certainly one to check out, particularly if you’re feeling like splashing the cash as at £23 they’re certainly a luxurious treat in my book. Scent wise these smell very similar to the vanilla scent associated with MAC lipsticks therefore if you like those then you will most certainly like these too.
Enhanced with a secret ingredient the ‘Lipstick Tree’ the breakthrough anti-oxidant helps to protect the lips from UV damage. The formula also claims to help create a more pert pout which is something I’m generally quite sceptical however I have to say it works, it really does.
In terms of longevity I have been very impressed with the wear time with this shade as I found it to last me 2-3 hours before I needed to reapply; staying power is also pretty good too even when eating and drinking. Application is extremely easy as the formula is incredibly easy to work with being super soft and of course very pigmented. The formula itself is more hydrating than I thought it would be however its not as moisturising in my opinion as some others in my collection. Please do remember that I seem to suffer with dry lips quite a lot as so many of you will have heard me say before so I wouldn’t be put off at all by that one factor; I’m certainly not.
Overall it’s a fantastic lip product that has fast become one of my favourite nude shades to wear. Being beautiful to wear and not just to hold I have a feeling that this won’t be the only Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick in my collection for long.
Charlotte Tilbury products can be purchased online or at Selfridges. For all of you in the US Charlotte Tilbury will be launching on the 02/09/14 so you have just a few more hours to wait until you can get your hands on some of these beautiful products.
