Charlotte Tilbury has some gorgeous Christmas gifts out at the moment, including that beautiful Advent Calendar. She has also released three limited edition lipsticks inspired by her favourite cities in the world. As soon as I saw the Charlotte Tilbury Cities lipsticks on the website I fell instantly in love and was very excited when they arrived through my door the other day.
I own every single Charlotte Tilbury lipstick and I am very proud of my collection. Her lipsticks are stunning – from the shades to the formula to the packaging … she nails it every time. Even if the rest of her range doesn’t appear to you, every woman needs to try a Tilbury lipstick and these are a good selection to start with.
As I mentioned, the Charlotte Tilbury Cities shades are based on Charlotte’s favourite cities:
ENGLISH BEAUTY – London
SHANGHAI NIGHTS – Shanghai
AMERICAN SWEETHEART – New York
There are two Matte Revolution shades and one K.I.S.S.I.N.G. shade and all three are beautiful.
Younger and healthier looking lips. The antioxidant Lipstick Tree extracts with soothing orchid help to soften, protect and hydrate the lips. The revolutionary square angled tip mimics the shape of a lip brush for precise application. 3D glowing pigments help create the illusion of lit-from-within lips.
Perfect, full and kissable lips. The Lipstick Tree protects lips from UV damage and oxidative street to leave them soft, soothed and hydrated. Light-diffusing pigments give your lips a multi-dimensional finish to leave them looking full-bodied and luminous. The blend of waxes glides over the lips for rich, buildable colour.
ENGLISH BEAUTY – MATTE REVOLUTION – £24.00
If you’re looking for a pretty nude pink matte then look no further. It’s beautifully creamy but still matte and it gives the lips a natural finish. Ok, so it is very similar to Pillow Talk (slightly lighter), but it is a beautiful shade. It wears nicely and isn’t remotely drying on the lips. I do find that Charlotte does nude shades really well and this is no exception. It pairs well with the Seduction Lip Lustre and the Pillow Talk Lip Cheat.
SHANGHAI NIGHTS – MATTE REVOLUTION – £24.00
Any of you who picked up Opium Noir last year will love this shade. It is quite similar with it’s deep red shade, but there is a touch of pink that lightens this a little and makes it more wearable. The wear time on this is great as it stays on for hours although you will want to touch up every few hours just to keep it looking fresh. I love this shade and can see it getting a lot of use during the winter months. Shanghai Nights pairs well with the Red Vixen Lip Lustre and the Savage Rose Lip Cheat.
AMERICAN SWEETHEART – K.I.S.S.I.N.G. – £24.00
This has to be my least favourite of the Cities range. It’s described as being a naturally tawny pink but there is a definite orange undertone which doesn’t work great on me as I’m very pale. I think if you’ve got a more tanned complexion then this will work great on you. Don’t get me wrong, it is a lovely shade and it feels super hydrating on the lips. I find that the more I build it up, the better the shade works for me. If you want a more coral toned nude, then this would be better for you than English Beauty. American Sweetheart pairs well with Portobello Girl Lip Lustre and the Pink Venus Lip Cheat.
