Charlotte Tilbury • Valentine & Pillow Talk "New"


"Lipstick is happiness in a tube" - Charlotte Tilbury 💋

Lipsticks are the one makeup item that I buy most often. They are indeed a happy thing to  spend money on and they can change how you feel in an instant. Pretty powerful stuff for what is technically a stick of colour. 

Charlotte Tilbury fans (aka me) have been up in arms this month with the exciting news of two new lipstick shades, one being the winner of an Instagram competition and the other a shade that many of us hoped would happen. I of course had to order them straight away as I had no hesitation that I would not love them and guess what ...  I sure do! If you have not tried Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks then you are missing out as they truly are divine and these two new shades work with so many skin tones and occasions so most definitely two worth checking out.

This was named by 'us' on Instagram through a competition Charlotte Tilbury held and I think the right name won as it is simply perfect. A beautiful petal rose pink that gives you a pretty pink lip for day or night. It has a real 60's vibe about it making this the perfect partner to a smokey eye and some false lashes. The formula is enriched with 3D pigments to help give fuller looking, more pouty lips that look and feel really hydrated. This works really well with my beloved Pink Venus Lip Cheat Lip liner (here) as that liner is my holy grail!

The K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick formula glides over the lips with a great amount of pigment that is super buildable and thanks to it's waxes they don't bleed or move over the lip line. Charlotte really does have all angles covered! I think Charlotte Tilbury packaging is one of the best in my opinion, so elegant and luxurious bringing some old fashioned Hollywood glamour into all our lives.

If you are not aware, Pillow Talk is ICONIC as it is in fact the best selling lip cheat shade (lipliner) and avid CT fans have been begging for it to be made into a lipstick, so ta-dah, Charlotte did! A beautiful matte nudey-pink that reflects and enhances your own natural lip shade and a shade that looks good on everyone. I adore the matte formulations as for me they are super hydrating and non drying and I love the effect that they give. The formulation of the lipsticks and liners actually do make it possible to cheat the size and shape of your lips so my small lips cant do without this combination as they are the best. 

This is by far the shade that has everyone talking as never have I known a lipstick suit everybody and look so unique at the same time.

I have to say I think these are two stunning lipstick shades. I never order lipsticks without seeing them in the flesh first, but Charlotte Tilbury is the only brand where I have full confidence in knowing that I shall love them hence I am happy to take the chance every time.

The CT website is brilliant for showing the shades in real life on all skin tones and there is even a clever Lipstick finder app that even shows what shades shall suit you (click here!). Both lipsticks have been introduced as limited editions so I am not sure if they shall be added to the permananet line so I would say if you like them, don't hang about and grab them while you can. You certainly won't regret it. 

(Dear Charlotte, please make Pink Venus Lip Cheat into a lip shade too - Much Love!) 
What's your favourite?
