So as of today, you can now buy Charlotte Tilbury products online in the US, and I for one and absolutely over the moon about this, having just moved to New York myself! Charlotte’s make-up line will be sold at CharlotteTilbury.com, Nordstrom.com, BergdorfGoodman.com, Net-A-Porter.com and BeautyLish.com, before launching at Bergdorf Goodman, New York on October 7th and Nordstrom at The Grove, LA on October 9th/10th. It will then be rolling out to selected Nordstom stores nationwide in November. It is what make-up lovers and beauty enthusiasts have been waiting for ever since her successful launch in the UK a year ago.
If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will know how much I love Charlotte Tilbury products. The quality is second to none and her packaging is just to die for. I have previously reviewed the amazing Dolce Vita Eyeshadow Palette (here) and the gorgeous Filmstar Bronze and Glow (here) which are now two of my all time favourite make-up products. To coincide with her US launch, I have now got a couple of her lip products to share with you, the Lip Cheat in Pillowtalk and K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Fallen From the Lipstick Tree Lipstick in Penelope Pink.
These two lip products are from the Dolce Vita look, which is one of ten iconic looks (see them all here) that Charlotte has created to make it easy for people to select coordinating products, helping them to recreate the look at home.
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat is a smooth, velvety lip pencil, which glides on effotlessly. The shade Pillowtalk is just the most gorgeous pinky nude and matches the colour of my lips perfectly, allowing me to re-shape my lips in the most natural way. It doesn’t smudge or bleed and stays put for hours, creating a gorgeous pout. I have become a little bit addicted to this as it somehow manage to make my lips look that little bit fuller and plumper. I tend to wear this in two ways, either by drawing around my lips and using Penelope Pink Lipstick or I fill in the whole of my lip with it, and apply a nude gloss over the top of it. My favourite is the NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee (which I talked about here), however I cannot wait to get my hands on Charlotte’s corresponding Lip Lustre in Seduction to complete the look.
The Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in Penelope Pink corresponds with Pillowtalk perfectly as it is the same pinky nude. I like that it is nude, but has a nice warmth to it so doesn’t completely wash you out as some nude lipsticks can. It applies smoothly and feels very hydrating on the lips, leaving them looking full and plump. This lipstick is enriched with a secret ingredient, from the ‘Lipstick Tree’, which is an anti-oxidant that apart from leaving them soft and smooth, also naturally protects lips from UV damage and pollution. I love this little secret as it adds a little intrigue and interest to the product as well as protecting the lips! It is a fairly rich and pigmented lipstick, so applies quite opaque, which I really like as one swipe and you are good to go! Of course I cannot ignore the decidant gold vintage packaging which makes it feels beautifully luxurious and just looking at the packaging makes you feel so glamorous. Definitely one for the clutch bag!
The combination of the two products work perfectly together and look super pretty with a smokey eye or of course the other products of the Dolce Vita look!
