I must have mentioned Charlotte Tilbury make up to my sister a few too many times on the run up to my birthday. Charlotte Tilbury is make up artist to the stars, working in the fashion and beauty industry for over 20 years and has recently opened up a flag-ship store in Covent Garden. I love visiting the website, it is so luxurious looking and makes me want one of everything! You can even add a wish list, mine is endless.
So on my birthday I was amazed when I unwrapped a box wondering what the contents could be…
I opened up a little brown box to find luxurious burgundy tissue paper with a little Charlotte Tilbury sticker waiting for me. To my delight I peeled open the paper to reveal a Matte Revolution Lipstick in Glastonberry and a Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Bad Romance, both a match made in heaven for my love of dark glamorous lips.
With great care I used the lip liner to even out my slightly wonky lips and create the cupids bow I strive to have.
I then used a lip brush to add in the matte lipstick which was a lovely texture and glided on my lips very smoothly. It took a couple of coats to create the look I love and then I had beautifully full luxurious looking lips to be proud of, perfect for for my date night with the Hubby.
With any new make up product I worry about its staying power, but with this lip combination I had no need to worry and after a couple of drinks it was still beautifully in place.
This lip stick is a must have for your make up bag.
I look forward to adding more to my collection and even getting Lucy to try out a few of her other items.
