Good morning my flaneurs and happy Friday !My blogging goal for this year was to expand my horizons and offer more content to you that affects your life as a whole. My main focus has always been fashion, but I want to focus on other categories that I do tend to neglect from time to time. For this beauty post I wanted to share with you 3 Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipsticks that I will be using for spring.
First Runner up is Nude Kate. I have never seen myself wearing a nude lipstick before so this was so interesting to see. You definitely feel odd at first, but as time went by I got used to it. I have wanted to add a nude lipstick in my collection for a while now, and I do think this one is a keeper. The lipstick is very nude, at least for me, since I have always worn pink lipsticks. But I was so impressed with the quality. The lipstick's pigment is amazing.A little trick I discovered is to apply gloss to nude lipsticks. It adds that extra shine and in away makes it seem less nude.
This shade is really interesting. So when you look at the lipstick it looks anything but pink, but then when I applied it on my lips and later on my arm I could definitely see hints of pink in it. It is a very nude colour, but it's more of what I want to call a fleshy pink or a peachy-tan nude. So don't let the name throw you off. Compared to the Nude Kate lipstick, Penelope Pink is a darker nude with hints of pink and tan brown. The Nude Kate has more of an earthy tone to it and is also more transparent than this one. Penelope Pink is also a semi mat lipstick, but it doesn't over dry the lips like other brands too which I love. If you are looking for a semi-nude I would recommend going with this one.
Coachella Coral is another Charlotte Tilbury lipstick I recommend for spring. If you like pink you will love this one. It is a mixture between red and pink that has such a beautiful rich colour when you apply it on your lips. I absolutely loved how this one looked on me. Also, since this lipstick is darker, you do not need to add a gloss over it. I found this lipstick had the perfect amount of shine in it.
Overall ThoughtsI am pretty pleased with the quality of the lipsticks. I cannot speak as to how other shades of Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks are, but I did like the ones that I tested. At first I felt out of place wearing a nude lipstick, but I can definitely get used to the Penelope Pink. I have been wanting to try a nude lipstick for a while, and if you are looking for one too, I do recommend this brand. I also adore the feminine, gold packaging which gives that Great Gatsby feel to it. I liked applying a little bit of gloss on top of the lipsticks for some extra shine. But that is totally up to you.
Has anyone else ever used Charlotte Tilbury Lipsticks? What are your faves?
