Two From Charlotte Tilbury

Whilst in London, I may have accidentally stumbled into Selfridges and fell in love with every single Charlotte Tilbury lipstick.. 

Charlotte Tilbury is a brand I’ve always wanted to try, for starters ROSE GOLD PACKAGING!! and so I knew that I wanted to venture into Selfridges on our weekend away to London to see the beautiful products in person and treat myself to a lovely new lipstick.
At first I limited myself to one lipstick and decided on ‘Bitch Perfect,’ a beautiful nude/pink- as we took to Oxford street for a second time my lovely boyfriend treated me to the shade ‘Secret Salma’ and I am SO in love with both of these lipsticks from Charlotte Tilbury.

Part of the K.I.S.S.I.N.G collection and one I knew I wanted, Bitch Perfect is a beautiful nude colour that is perfect for all skin tones. I usually stay clear of nude lipsticks as they tend to wash me out and emphasise my ghostly pale skin, however this one has lovely undertones that mean it is a wearable and flattering colour for even the palest of us. I’m slightly obsessed with the packaging of the CT lipsticks, the combination of rose gold and the beautifully designed bullets reminds me of old Hollywood glamour- the packaging is a lovely size to carry around and is sturdy. The product itself definitely lives up to the expectations I had set, the light diffusing pigments ensures that the product leaves your lips looking glossy without the sticky texture that other gloss based lipsticks have, yet gives off the pigmentation of a high end lipstick. The formula glides onto the lips and stays on for 4-5 hours based on personal experience, however the amount you eat/drink etc will influence this. 

I didn’t expect to pick up more than one until we got back to our hotel room and I couldn’t resist wanting to head back onto Oxford Street to have another look, my boyfriend very kindly brought this one for me and he choose it himself! (husband material) Secret Salma is apart of the  Hot Lips collection and is one of the new matte formula lipsticks. I was immediately drawn to the colour, Secret Salma is a beautiful pink toned mauve and so I know I’ll get lots of wear out of it throughout the Autumn and Winter months. Besides from the lipstick lasting hours, having a lovely non-drying matte formula and looking beautiful, this will always hold sentimental value to me as it will remind me of the best weekend in London.

After browsing the Charlotte Tilbury website I have my eyes on Glastonbury & Bond Girl..

have you tried any of the CT lipsticks? if so, which is your favourite?
