This is my current favourite makeup obsession – the Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre in the colour ‘Seduction’. It was my birthday a few weeks ago and I was so kindly given this as a birthday gift – so exciting! I am really late to the party in trying Charlotte Tilbury makeup. I have always adored the dreamy packaging (rose gold is my favourite) but never tried products from the range before, so this is a first impressions of the brand as well as the product alone.
I should start by saying that I have been wearing this pretty much daily since I got it! It is a coloured lip gloss or ‘lustre’. The formula doesn’t feel heavy, nor does it feel too sticky on the lips (I feel like everyone has experienced their hair getting stuck in lip-gloss while walking in the wind – not good!!)
It is pigmented enough to really notice the colour on your lips, but the colour is sheer so looks natural and pretty. My favourite way to wear this has been alone – it adds moisture and a glossy shine to my lips without being too dramatic, making it perfect for everyday. It also looks amazing on top of a matte lipstick; paring gloss and lipstick avoid the overly dry-matte look.
I have mine in the colour ‘Seduction’ which I would call a warm toned, pinky-nude! It is easily the prettiest gloss colour I own, it just looks beautiful. As you can see from the swatch on my hand, the pigmentation is spot on – not too much but not too sheer! It looks so pretty with any makeup look. I think my favourite shades do always tend to be the versatile ones that can be worn with anything!
As an initial introduction to Charlotte Tilbury, this has made an amazing first impression. The packaging and shade are beautiful and the packaging means it has made my makeup collection look so much prettier!
Have you tried any Charlotte Tilbury makeup? I’d love to know your recommendation of some products to try next!
