Charlotte Tilbury Liv it UpCharlotte Tilbury Liv it Up

Charlotte Tilbury is a brand whose products I have always admired. However, it was only last month when I finally treated myself to a couple of products from the brand – you can see all the things I picked up in this post.

Obviously, I couldn’t make a Charlotte Tilbury purchase without picking up one of her highly-coveted lipsticks.  Charlotte Tilbury recently released a new collection of lipsticks called the Hot Lips collection, and each shade is inspired by a different celebrity beauty icon such as Nicole Kidman, Miranda Kerr and Kate Bosworth.  After spending a considerable amount of time swatching the shades on the Charlotte Tilbury counter, I finally settled on ‘Liv it Up’ – a lipstick inspired by Liv Tyler.

The Charlotte Tilbury ‘Liv it Up’ lipstick is described as a ‘ballet pink’ shade.  As you can see from the photo above, it’s a natural looking pink shade with a very slight blue-undertone making it the perfect summer shade.

It’s just one of those easy-to-wear lipstick shades which complements pretty much any makeup look, whether you’re going for a more natural, daytime look or smoky eyes at night. The formula of this lipstick is also ah-mazing!  It feels nice and hydrating on the lips, which normally means that the lipstick won’t last very long throughout the day.  However, I was pleased to discover that this is hydrating and long-lasting, which is pretty impressive. It’s perfect if you suffer from dry lips as it glides over the lips, concealing any dry patches and treating your lips at the same time.

My first Charlotte Tilbury purchase definitely didn’t disappoint and I’ve got my eye on quite a few other products now! I’d love to know what your favourite Charlotte Tilbury products are and any recommendations you may have!

 The Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in ‘Liv it Up’ is available from John Lewis. £1 from every lipstick sold is donated to Women for Women International.
