My lipsticks from Charlotte Tilbury arrived, and I am OVER THE MOON!
From the Left:
Like my first purchase of Stoned Rose, I am completely in love with this formulation. It’s highly moisturizing, and really hugs the lips. Totally comfortable on.
Hepburn Honey actually works on my warm skin tone as a nude. It’s very ‘brown’… not so pink. Most nudes go ashy pink on me, but this one holds beautifully and stays nude.
This coral does run a little pink, but it’s still lovely. It’s lighter than the online swatches show, so I can see it being a little ‘garish’ on some skin tones. I recommend a light touch, and build accordingly.
I expected Velvet Underground to be more of a loud blue based fuchsia, but it’s more rosy in practical application. It’s actually a lovely color to wear if you like the idea of color, but don’t want to go full out ‘clubbing’ fuchsia. It’s funny that this is named Velvet Underground (as if it would be perfectly suited to nightlife), because it’s pretty tame in reality.
So Marilyn is exactly what I expected: a lovely neutral red. The undertones are not too ‘blue’ so it works well on my warm skin tone. Totally flattering.
Like Velvet Underground, this one is pretty tame as well. It’s really not that dark, and is perfectly wearable for a wide range of skin tones. I was worried about it going too goth, but that’s certainly not the case.
I also got the lip brush (worth it), and several lipglosses (not worth it). Swatches and reviews coming. Ciao for now!
