|Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipsticks Liv It Up, Electric Poppy Review Swatches|
Last Friday, I searched high and low for the new Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipsticks. While limited testers were available to swatch at Selfridges, a kind MUA whispered and said the lipsticks were available to purchase from Fenwicks in New Bond Street and the flagship store in Covent Garden. Only 10 minutes walk from Selfridges, I landed in Fenwicks and I was greeted with the most friendly most helpful staff I have met in any high end beauty department.
A gorgeous tall blonde MUA came to my assistance as I swatched away at the individual lipsticks and instead of just purchasing 1 lipstick as I had planned, I left with two!
Now this was a pre-planned purchase. Finally a lipstick with my name on it that isn't too pale (Illamasqua!) nor too dark (NARS). Liv It Up is a nude pink with a creamy finish and a gentle pearl. It brightens up my NC30 complexion. Its the perfect colour for every day wear.
Now this I didn't expect to pick up. It is a bright coral red that brings out the natural pink ness of my cheeks. It is creamy modern matte and does have a bit of slip. I like dabbing on the lips and spreading with my finger to create a natural stain like finish. The colour is perfect for the summer and hence I ran with it!
Ccan I just talk about the edged tip of the lipstick bullet? It makes it so easy to define the lip line without requiring a pencil. Genius! However this edge does erode with use unfortunately. But its still a brilliant idea.
The Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipsticks are available online, flagship store, Fenwicks in New Bond Street and Selfridges from today 4th July 2016.
