Darlings, as Charlotte would say, are you on the perpetual hunt for the perfect nude? Do you love super pretty packaging and smooth and lovely textures? You may have been looking for Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks. Read on to know for sure.
I purchased these 4 Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks with my pro artists discount. I chose shades that would be flattering for my clients, and possibly myself.
- Pillowtalk: Often described as the perfect, your lips but better, pinky nude.
- Bitch Perfect: A truly peachy nude with a satin sheen. No pink here.
- Super Cindy: A mid-tone peachy nude, inspired by my favorite supermodel of all time, Cindy Crawford.
- Supermodel: A deep nude with a mauve hint. I would say this is a deeper version of Pillowtalk.
I really dig this formula because while it is matte, it’s not drying or flat and feels totally great on. This is what a matte formula should be.
I would describe this as a satin finish, a bit of sheen but not glossy. I never thought I’d prefer a matte formula but I do like Matte Revolution better than this.
Pillowtalk really is that “your lips but better” color that looks good on most light to medium skin tones.
I personally find Super Cindy to my perfect nude with it’s more peach vs. pink shift. I’m also obsessed with Cindy Crawford though, so that’s just me.
The Matte Revolution formula lasts longer than K.I.S.S.I.N.G. as it’s less emollient. It doesn’t last as long as a liquid lipstick, no way, but it doesn’t transfer badly or wear away quickly either. I’d say it’s just right really.
If you find Bitch Perfect too peachy, try what I did the other day on a photoshoot. I lined the model’s lip with a more nude lip liner, filled in the sides, and then just used Bitch Perfect more in the center. It made this beautiful, fall cinnamon shade.
If you have seriously dry lips, you may prefer the K.I.S.S.I.N.G. formula but the Matte Revolution formula is far less drying than most of the matte lipsticks I’ve tried.
I think the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks come in beautiful shades and formulas that feel high end. Since they are more of a luxury price point, $34, I think they are perfect for weddings and special occasions.
