Too Many Lipsticks? Never!

For as long as I have loved makeup I have always been a lipstick girl, if there was one beauty item that I would be drawn to at a counter it would be lipstick. In all colours, all finishes, all brands, lipstick would be my number one choice of a new beauty product (much to my fianc├ęs dismay I'm sure). Over the years I have amassed quite the lipstick collection and there is one brand that without fail stands out for me. Charlotte Tilbury very quickly became my go to brand for makeup and specifically lipsticks, I fell in love with the consistency, the colours, the packaging, and the brand. Whether I'm feeling dark and vampy, bold and glamorous, or understated and casual, Charlotte Tilbury has a lipstick for me and I always feel more put together and polished with a Tilbury lipstick on my lips. Matte & Satin finishes, I love them both. Always creamy, never drying and consistently long lasting.
From Left to Right:
Very Victoria, Bitch Perfect, Between The Sheets, So Marilyn, Love Liberty, Glastonberry 

Very Victoria, Matte Revolution (Above Left)- This is the most perfect taupe nude lipstick, it has a tiny amount of pink to it but it’s just the perfect amount to add a little more colour to the lipstick so it doesn’t wash out my complexion. 
Bitch Perfect, K.I.S.S.I.N.G (Above Right)- The perfect creamy pinky nude, lighter than Very Victoria, but still very much a nude lipstick, packed with pink tones this is such a beautiful every day kind of lipstick shade, that is so universally flattering in my opinion.
Between The Sheets, Matte Revolution (Above Left)- This was a limited edition lipstick from the beginning of last year and as soon as I saw the colour I couldn’t not snap it up straight away! A gorgeous matte dusky rose pink, this is one of my favourite lipstick shades of all time, I absolutely adore it, and always receive so many compliments on it whenever I wear it. 

So Marilyn, K.I.S.S.I.N.G (Above Right)- A glamorous glossy true red shade. This lipstick seems to be much more glossy than the other shades from the range, but it does create a gorgeous bold lip look, but given the glossiness to it, I tend to find it doesn’t last as long and needs more frequent topping up, but maybe that’s just a result of wearing it mostly at Christmas time and at party’s where lots of drinking and eating occurs!
Love Liberty, Matte Revolution (Above Left)- This shade is such a lovely alternative to the usual berry tones you see this time of year, it has more of a cherry/fuchsia flush to it than dark berry tones, it’s a softer, lighter way of wearing a dark lip, but still just as gorgeous. Love Liberty has been one of my all-time favourite lipsticks for so long now, it’s a perfect makeup pick me up.

Glastonberry, Matte Revolution (Above Right)- The darkest blackcurrant shade, not a lipstick for the faint-hearted or those who prefer to play it safe with their lipstick colour. This one is perfect for Winter, and perfect for adding a bit of edge to your makeup look. This is such a true plum/blackcurrant purple and at first I was hesitant that it wouldn’t suit my paler complexion but I’ve since found that this colour really does look beautiful on everyone.
Whether you're looking for a new lipstick to treat yourself, or looking for inspiration for a gift, I couldn't recommend the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks more. The elegant art deco inspired packaging is just one of the major parts of the attraction to her products, these products look just as beautiful on your dresser, as they do on your lips!
