The last thing I was needing to buy were more lipsticks, however, I just couldn’t resist picking up the Charlotte Tilbury ‘At Your Lip Service‘ lipstick trio during Black Friday. This set of three beautiful lipsticks normally retails for £60 (which is still a saving of £12 if you were to purchase them individually) but I managed to pick this set up for only £30. Regular readers will already be aware of my obsession with Charlotte Tilbury and you can also read my thoughts on the shades Kim K.W., Secret Salma and Sexy Sienna.
The kit features Charlotte’s award-winning formulas: K.I.S.S.I.N.G and Matte Revolution. Legendary Queen is a rich red wine shade with chocolate undertones. It’s not a colour I’d usually gravitate to as I find these types of shades a little ageing but it’s nice to have more variety in a collection otherwise dominated by ‘muted rose’ shades. Legendary Queen is a sophisticated, slightly vampy shape with a long-lasting matte finish. I find that I really have to be careful during application as it does stain the lips and face considerably. I’d recommend using it with a lip liner like Charlotte’s Lip Cheat lip liner in Walk of Shame.
The Matte Revolution Lipstick in The Queen was on my lips all of Christmas day. It’s a regal and vibrant red with hints of hot pink throughout. It instantly adds a little glamour to your look. It’s bold, beautiful and, like all lipsticks with the Matte Revolution formula, contains 3D pigments to create an illusion of wider, fuller lips and orchid extracts to help soften, protect and hydrate lips.
Finally, my favourite of the trio, the K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in The Duchess. It’s like someone took CT’s Pillow Talk and MAC Creme Cup and made a baby. The Duchess is an elegant tea-rose pink with a creamy, luminous finish. It’s super moisturising but does transfer quite a bit during the day, so I’ll probably run this lipstick down quite quickly, but it’s so worth it. The Duchess has become one of my favourite shades in my entire collection.1
