My First Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick

Charlotte Tilbury kidman's kiss review

Confession time: I've never owned a Charlotte Tilbury lipstick before so I was eager to try one. When I saw the release of the new Hot Lips collection I was intrigued, to say the least. It was a very hard decision to pick just one. I had my eye on 'Kidman's Kiss' as well as 'Liv It Up' but I chose the former as it was quite different to any shade that I already own. I was blown away by every aspect of this lipstick and I genuinely can't understand why it took me so long to try a CT lipstick *insert shocked emoji*


Shop The Post:



   1. Shade:   


'Kidman's Kiss is a beautiful light peachy pink shade which looks quite bright on the lips. This is the brightest neutral shade I own so I think it would be perfect for those who aren't comfortable with bright lipsticks and you want to start off with something easy.

   2. Formula & Finish:   


The formula of this lipstick is just incredible! It has a matte finish but it's the creamiest matte lipstick I've ever come across. It's a dream to apply as it just glides on effortlessly, doesn't drag on the lips and doesn't accentuate any dry patches. Although it has a matte finish, it's a unique one as it has a slight satin sheen to it. The formula also plumps my lips making them look slightly bigger so when you wear this with a liner it makes them look even bigger - Who needs lip fillers when you have this?

   3. Pigmentation   


As I would expect with the €30 price tag, the colour payoff is excellent! One light layer of this packs a serious punch to the lips. I often have to build up my Mac lipsticks to two layers depending on the shade or formula but with this particular lipstick, one light layer is all that's needed.

   4. Lasting Power:   


Again, the lasting power is incredible! I applied this around 11am the other day and it was my sister's birthday so we headed to the pub for a carvery lunch. A big dinner, a dessert, a glass of water and a cup of tea later the lipstick was still holding up well. Around 4pm we headed home and I was in the car with my sister when she asked me had I reapplied the lipstick - I answered no and we were both shocked! There was a little bit of breakdown which is understandable but it still looked pretty good. Around 5pm was when I would've needed to apply another layer if I were still out and about.

   5. Worth The Pennies?   


YES! Not only is the packaging perfection from the luxurious rose gold exterior to the intricate engraving of a set of lips on the product, but the quality of the product is incredible. The lasting power alone is what sets this apart from a Mac lipstick. I will definitely be purchasing more CT lipsticks!
