Hello My Lovelies,
I hope you are all doing well and are having a fabulous weekend so far. Here is to chapter 3 of 12 and to the first day of spring. I am pretty excited for the start of spring with the weather (hopefully) getting warmer, the mornings getting light, the evenings staying light for longer and of course being able to whip out all of my spring and summer favourites. Firstly, I wanted to start this post by saying THANK YOU because I hit 3000 bloglovin' followers this week which was a huge deal. I am planning a pretty exciting giveaway for you all so stay tuned for that! Last Sunday I brought you a Collective MAC Lipstick Haul so today I thought I would keep within the lipstick theme and bring you my Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Collection. I think lipstick has got to be one of my favourite pieces of makeup and I just love the way it can change the way you look and feel. Before I started my blog I was never that adventurous when it came to my lipstick, I never used to think bright lipstick suited me and I think I just didn't feel that confident whilst wearing them. Oh boy how times have changed! I cannot believe what a few years of blogging and being in the beauty community has done to me - now I can't get enough of them! I have accumulated a lovely little collection over the past four months and I cannot wait to add more to my collection.
There is something about Charlotte Tilbury's brand that I just cannot resist. Her lipsticks in particular are like nothing I have tried before and I was so excited when I added my first shade to my collection back in November. It was so hard to narrow it down to one shade that would be the perfect all rounder until I ventured out and added a few more to my collection, however, I finally decided on Bitch Perfect (such a great name) and it literally kicked off a love affair. The packaging is simply phenomenal and I am totally in love with the rose gold theme. If you are a regular reader of my blog then you will understand my obsession with rose gold - I think it is just beautiful. The one thing about having a fully metallic packaging is the fact that it is prone to finger prints, however, the rose gold beautiful-ness compensates for that and I would still purchase them regardless!
Let's start off with Bitch Perfect; this is such a beautiful pinky-nude that works amazingly with Pillow Talk Lip Cheat also by Charlotte Tilbury. The signature range consists of 11 lipsticks which have been curated with modern and classic icons in mind. This particular formula is enriched with a breakthrough, secret ingredient, the Lipstick Tree, and anti-oxidants that naturally protects lips from UV damage and external pollution leaving them cashmere soft and irresistible. As you can see from the swatch Bitch Perfect is a very creamy lipsticks and this is due to the special waxes and clever light-diffusing pigments in the formulation which help create pert, full-bodies, ultra-brilliant lips that will surely leave a lasting impression. I love how versatile this shade is and I think it would look beautiful paired with natural makeup during the day or even with a more sultry dramatic look for the evenings. Next we have Confession; this was a limited edition lipstick that was part of the Supermodel Look Video Box that was release at the end of 2014 - you can still purchase the box from selected websites/stores and if you would like to see a review of it you can click here. Unfortunately, you can't purchase this shade alone however I am sure there would be something similar within the permanent collection that would be a great alternative - Bitch Perfect alone is a pinky version. Confession is a dusky, tawny nude flecked with pure gold particles which was inspired by the full, ample lips or Helena, Christy, Naomi, Cara, Joan and Adriana. Charlotte Tilbury calls this here genius full proof shade as it suits absolutely everyone and I think I would have to agree with that statement. Combined with the glorious golden flecks this makes the most perfect and unique nude shade.
Next we have Lost Cherry; this is a bright yet pastel coral shade that is sure to be a statement during the spring and summer time. Compared to the previous two shades Lost Cherry has a different formulation and offers a luminous modern-matte finish. Charlotte Tilbury calls these the matte lipsticks of the future with their long-lasting, buildable and hydrating formula - they honestly feel so comfortable on the lips. Lost Cherry is lovely for a fresh and effortlessly gorgeous look and is also perfect for a Kate Bosworth, Felicity Jones or Cara Delevingne inspire look. Next we have So Marilyn; like the name suggests is a classic Marilyn Monroe red shade which was inspired by the icon herself. When I was picking this shade out in store I was torn between this and Love Bite but I am so glad I opted for this shade - it is a deeper toned red much like MAC Russian Red and it looks stunning on the lips, especially paired with a winged eyeliner look. I am sure I will add Love Bite to my collection at some point though - I would love to eventually own the entire collection, however, it will probably take a little time to accumulate them all. I am very much looking forward to pairing this lipstick with my Dolce Vita Palette! Finally, but certainly not least we have Glastonberry; this was a shade I was most excited about adding to my collection after falling in love with MAC Rebel. This has the exact same formulation as Lost Cherry and I have to say that the matte formulation is simply stunning. Firstly, I absolutely love the name that Charlotte came up with for this lipstick - although each lipstick from the collection have such fun names. True to its name this is a plummy purple berry shade and I am completely in love with it and just like Lost Cherry this feels so comfortable on the lips with incredible staying power. Even though the spring and summer month are upon us I have full confidence that I will be wearing this shade - there are no rules when it comes to makeup and dark shades don't have to be just for the autumn and winter time.
Now, I think we all need to take a moment to appreciate the exquisite rose gold packaging. If you are a regular reader of my blog then you will know my obsession with all things rose gold and I have to say Charlotte has really hit it on the nail...it is just so dazzling! I hope you all enjoyed diving into my Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick Collection, I have fallen head over heels for the brand and I cannot wait to expand my collection even more. If you would like to see any full reviews or makeup tutorials featuring these lipsticks then please let me know I would be more than happy to come up with some makeup looks.
