I have been dying, dying to try the new offerings from Charlotte Tilbury.
The new Matte Revolution lipsticks looked and sounded gorgeous. I just needed to get my mits on them.
When Stacey from Expat Make-Up Addict literally shouted at me telling me (good job I like her lots huh?) stating I needed the Pillow Talk Lip Liner from Charlotte Tilbury I went and popped it in my basket (gotta do what your told when it comes to the lipstick queen) with the Desk to Disco duo Love Liberty and Amazing Grace.
The Desk to Disco duo aim is to have you armed with an am and pm lipstick. To be honest these two shades so wouldn’t be my usual picks.
Now I bought my previous CT products at the Selfridges launch so was pretty impressed when the parcel landed on my desk. It was packaged just beautifully and would make the perfect gift.
The purple theme and sturdy envelope (receipt in) embossed with the CT logo oozes class and totally represents this high end make-up brand.
The packaging is exactly the same as the previous K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipsticks.
They are gorgeous gold bullets, which are quite heavy. You always gonna be looking on top form whipping these out your bag.
Love Liberty is inspired by the glamour muse range it’s described as a juicy wild rose colour. Personally it translates on my lips as a dark stained pink colour, on the plummy/ purple side of town. It’s a statement colour and one I can’t wait to wear on my next night out.
Amazing Grace inspired by the Uptown Girl range is so not an “Antonia” colour but oh ma gawd I adore it.
It’s described as a vintage rose shade. Its a very understated nude pink colour but looks so gorgeous and classy on the lips. Its a shade or two darker than my natural lip colour. I have had so many compliments about it. Super impressed.
Now I am just gonna sound like I am repeating the item description, but damn it’s so true.
These are matte lipsticks, which are by far the creamiest I have ever tried, Ever. They have excellent lasting power and the two shades I have are super pigmented and are pretty true to the swatches below when applied on the lips.
They last around 2 hours on my lips and fade evenly.
Now I have the driest lips known to man. Love Liberty did catch on the inner part of my dry lips, so with the colder months creeping in It will be necessary to use a lip scrub and balm religiously pre-lipstick application.

Ahhh now pillow talk lip-liner/ lip-cheat. This has cult status and now I know why. The pencil is perfectly sized and light so it is super easy to use. It naturally enhances your lip shape, doesn’t smudge and stays put. It is the perfect real life lip colour so works with subtle neutral/nude toned lip products.
I am not really a lip liner girl so don’t have loads to compare it too, but I have been wearing it every day with Amazing Grace and well now I couldn’t imagine not lining thee lips – every damn day.
Once again blown out the water by Charlotte Tilbury’s make-up products and it’s now my favourite high end make-up, brand by far.
