Kiss Chase and Between The Sheets New Charlotte Tilbury Lipsticks
A lipstick for a lipstick lover is like a magic wand. It can lift your mood, change a look, update an outfit and generally make you feel confident and happy. (Well those are my thoughts anyway.) As a little girl I would see my mum, aunts or other women applying lipstick and be envious of how glamorous they looked. I couldn’t wait until I was adult enough to buy my first lipstick and in my case, that was the latest shade from Rimmel (which I’m sure was called Coffee Shimmer? Correct me if I’m wrong.) that everyone was wearing for which I saved up and bought with my pocket money. Whilst my choice of shades and my general makeup preferences in life have evolved, the love of a good lipstick has not changed. Right now there is one brand that is totally on fire and not just in the lipstick area and that is…Charlotte Tilbury of course! Last year, Charlotte launched a competition allowing her fans to name the newest lipstick then being launched in the matte revolution range. This was to be a sex kitten blue tinged pink shade (as Charlotte described it). With such a phenomenal entry rate and loads of fabulous names to choose from, Charlotte decided to launch another pink shade in her K.I.S.S.I.N.G range as well. Introducing, Matte Revolution Between The Sheets and K.I.S.S.I.N.G Kiss Chase.
These gorgeous eye popping colours are what I like to refer to as the pink nudes. Far away enough from a bright red and just the right amount of colour in the matte to satisfy nude lipstick wearers.
Matte Revolution: Between The Sheets – This new shade is a natural light lipstick of rose colouring. Most matte lipsticks are hard work to wear and maintain as your lips need to be in good nick (i.e. not dry). This is why I totally believe that if you are going to wear a nude, spend the money on a good brand your lips will thank you for, and you, in turn, will look fabulous. Charlotte’s Matte formulation contains a blend of oils and waxes for easy colour application and the lipstick tree and orchid extract in the mix soften, hydrate and protect the lips. For a flawless matte look, gently scrub your lips with a lip scrub (especially in the winter months when lips are prone to be drier). Why not save some pennies and make your own lip scrub with my recipe here and then apply a little lip balm pre lipstick? You can try Charlotte’s Lip Magic for £25.
K.I.S.S.I.N.G: Kiss Chase -This new dark pink berry undertone shade is a welcome addition to Charlotte’s signature lipstick range. This is my favourite range from the two as with any lipstick that is not matte, the formula glides on to your lips and is a nice colour alternative to a bright red or a dark berry. It’s simply perfect to wear during the day without drawing too much attention to yourself, and also great with a smokey eye to complete that date night or mate night look. Made from the same ingredients as the rest of the range and from Charlotte’s infamous lipstick tree, your lips are sure to look and feel soothed and hydrated. Another selling point with these lipsticks is that whilst starting with a matching lip pencil will make your shade last longer and not bleed from the lip line, these lipsticks have a tendency to stay put!
