I have been lusting over Charlotte Tilbury make-up for such a long time, but I always felt I couldn’t justify the price of some of the products. After having the same lipstick on my wishlist for my birthday & Christmas, when I saw a massive Charlotte Tilbury stand in the gorgeous city of Amsterdam, I just thought sod it! I had been waiting way too long for this, so I picked up the lipstick I had wanted for so long, and also the most perfect lip liner to match, to make the perfect Charlotte Tilbury lip duo.
I am loving matte lipsticks at the moment, they are all the trend at the moment. So with this colour, and the formula, it was the perfect lipstick for me. I picked up Sexy Siena in the Matte Revolution range. I would say this is one of the lightest shades in the range, as I feel there a quite a few of the dark red and berry shades which are perfect for Autumn/Winter. Sexy Siena lipstick is a gorgeous coral colour, but is also a nice bright nude, which I think is just perfect for the summer. Especially as they are filled with lipstick tree and orchid extracts which smooths and softens the lips. The Matte Revolution also have really cool 3D glowing pigments in them, which gives the illusion of fuller and wider lips. Perfect for every girl who wants Kylie Jenner lips, right?
The product just slides on the lips and you can really enhance the colour and build it up for a bolder look too. I always find matte lipsticks stay on a lot better than the others, which is great as you won’t need to do as many make-up checks!
I am really happy with this product, I know I was umming and arring for a little while because of the price, but it is so worth it if you love a good matte lipstick. I really want to pick up another couple of colours too.
I wasn’t planning on buying a lip liner to go with the lipstick, but what can I say, it’s a weakness and the sales assistant definitely knew how to pull my strings. I also picked up the Lip Cheat lip pencil in Pink Venus. The sales assistant said this shade matches almost perfectly with Sexy Siena, and oh boy was she right. The shades are so nearly identical, except Pink Venus is slightly darker. I actually really like having a slight darker liner as I fell it makes your lips stand out that little bit more.
The product was so easy and smooth to apply. It has a more creamy formula which I think helps the application which I love.
The colours of both of these products together are just gorgeous. I feel they are a great look to make your lips look much more voluminous, and is the perfect shade for the summer time. One of the main things that I also love is that they do not leave your lips feeling dry, and they can last nearly all day without a touch up, how perfect?!
I am so glad I decided to bite the bullet and purchase these products, I definitely want to try some more Charlotte Tilbury products too, let me know what your faves are.
Love always, G x
