UPDATE: I did not have Patsy Crimson once I posted the evaluations beneath. However I’ve it now and I am thrilled – it is the shade I liked essentially the most on the preview! A vivacious assertion purple with a barely cool tone, it is named after Charlotte’s mum Patsy, featured right here in one in all Charlotte’s make-up movies.
When Patsy Crimson landed in my #grabbyhands, my lips had for some cause been sans salve for fairly a while, and so they had been pissed, nearly screaming for a layer of soothing lanolin. I ignored them and utilized Patsy Crimson Matte Revolution, anticipating my lips to swear at me in a rage for giving them matte lipstick as an alternative of a melty, comforting balm.
As an alternative my lips settled down and mentioned, “Oh hey, that is good too. We cool.”
What matte-magic is that this??? It is Charlotte Tilbury matte magic, that is what. The Matte Revolution method spins on a mix of waxes and safflower and corn oil that delivers a really comfy and emollient expertise. The end additionally has the slightest sheen so lips look lush and wholesome as an alternative of chalky and useless. As I mentioned to a pal, it is a matte to like, even for extra mature faces. #reality (Be aware: I geeked out concerning the method beneath as nicely; it was written BEFORE this little bit about Patsy Crimson, however I am not going to rewrite it because the expertise remains to be legitimate. *grin*)
charlotte tilbury scorching lips 2 superb amal
One of many new Charlotte Tilbury Scorching Lips 2 lipsticks particularly, Wonderful Amal, is a shock and likewise a shock for me. Yep, two surprises.
Described as an “elegant smooth berry purple,” the shade appears to me extra a putting, assured berry purple. Wonderful Amal is nearly vivid, deep fairly than daring. Within the tube it appears to be like like a plummy purple, a shade I am often inclined to skip over in favour of one thing brighter, extra vibrant.
Shock! Okay, at first I wasn’t positive – the color is, as my niece Lauren says, “darker” than I often put on, “however it appears to be like good.” *grin* And it would not have the zip I lean towards in a daring, vibrant shade. However after some time I began to see the color as extra berry than plum. Not that it modified on my lips, however my eyes… adjusted? No matter, nevertheless, I’ve fallen in love with it. (Wow, take a look at me increasing my shade preferences! I hadn’t realized how slender my vary was till I attempted all these new CT hues.)
Wonderful Amal is a Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution method. I do not put on a lot in the best way of matte lipstick. My lips have a tendency towards dryness, and admittedly, the older I get the extra I gravitate towards sheen on my lips fairly than not. But when the color will get me, I am completely satisfied to put on it over a little bit of lanolin or underneath a contact of gloss.
Shock! It took me about six or seven hours after I might utilized it to keep in mind that I used to be sporting a matte shade! I should not have been fairly so stunned; I’ve worn Charlotte’s Matte Revolution shades earlier than – notice to self: put on The Queen extra usually – so I do know it is not your common moisture-sucking matte. However to neglect for six hours or extra that I am sporting matte lipstick? Yeah, you get it.
Based on Charlotte in her shade description, Wonderful Amal will be utilized as a stain or extra intensely, fairly like the best way I am sporting it. (Utilized straight from the tube, sans lip liner.) I’ve additionally acquired the tiniest bit on my cheeks, over my Nudestix Nudies Matte Bronzer in Sunkissed.
charlotte tilbury scorching lips 2 carina’s star
To be truthful, I am a bit stunned by the opposite two Charlotte Tilbury Scorching Lips 2 shades I’ve: Carina’s Star and Dancefloor Princess. Each are shades I would not have thought of had I not acquired them as samples – my love for vibrant fuchsia and brilliant blue-red blinds me to extra delicate shades, particularly in the event that they learn as nudes.
A part of the explanation I really like vivid shades is that they imply I would like not more than a contact of darkish upper-lid waterlining and mascara as eye make-up. With delicate lip shades, I have to do extra. In preparation for swatching Carina’s Star and Dancefloor Princess, I intensified my eye make-up a bit with a little bit of shimmer and bronzer in addition to a chocolate smudged liner and slate alongside my higher waterline.
I do not like to emphasise that I obtain samples so I can consider and resolve whether or not to write down about them. However I am particularly glad of it with this assortment. I really like Carina’s Star! It is a extra subdued model of the form of juicy, brilliant coral shades I might gravitate towards – it appears to be like fairly like an orange-y nude within the tube. Nevertheless it’s so fairly and simply daring sufficient to look polished as an alternative of KaPow. I believe I can may even put on it with not more than the chocolate liner alongside my higher lashline, slate alongside my higher waterline, and many mascara. No eyeshadow essential. By the best way, photographs whereas holding lipstick are awkward certainly. My nieces Lauren and Erin needed to take heed to me making resentful huffing noises after every snap. 😆
Carina’s Star is a Matte Revolution – a matte so comfy I neglect that I am sporting a matte till six hours later.
charlotte tilbury scorching lips 2 dancefloor princess
The extra I see it, the extra I adore it – Dancefloor Princess is a enjoyable identify. Perhaps a bit cutesy for our Beautygeeks pal Ally McBeagle 😉, however I am unable to assist however benefit from the vibe. I additionally assume it is preferrred for a smokey-eye state of affairs.
Dancefloor Princess is a Ok.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick, Charlotte’s extra emollient, conditioning lipstick with a wholesome shine. And oh wow, do I dig the method. It feels good on lips and wears fairly nicely – you will need to contact up after consuming or ingesting, however that is not an issue when the case is so lovely. And it makes me assume once more that Charlotte Tilbury is a lipstick genius. I need to put on Ok.I.S.S.I.N.G lipsticks on a regular basis besides once I put on Matte Revolution. (Sure, that is a little bit of hyperbole, but when you are going to pay $$ for lipstick, it is acquired to be pretty to put on – Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks completely qualify.)
I believe I may have finished with a bit extra eye make-up, smoked out alongside my decrease lashes – or perhaps a livelier expression? The pictures I am posting on Instagram are totally different; with this make-up, Dancefloor Princess appears to be like greatest with a smile. *grin* However the further eye-makeup work shall be price it as a result of that is such a reasonably shade. It is fairly impartial – Ally, does the shade enchantment to you?
charlotte tilbury scorching lips 2 in love with olivia
The shade I am sporting in my Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm overview is In Love With Olivia. I did not see it as pink within the tube on the preview and I nonetheless do not see it as pink on me – appears extra nude-y to me, with a heat that works properly with my truthful/medium impartial pores and skin tones.
In Love With Olivia is a Ok.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick – severely, when you’ve by no means tried one, you will need to. Pretty texture and glide and a beautiful sheen. Should. Strive.
The one different factor I’ve to say about In Love With Olivia is that once more, it is a shade that I didn’t anticipate to love as a lot as I do. I’ve solely had it utilized, by CT make-up professional Michael Patterson, however I might positively put on it once more on days I really feel like sporting a contact extra eye make-up than liner and mascara. It appears to be like particularly good with the Glowgasm + Flawless Filter make-up Michael painted me with, which solely confirms that I would like Michael to pop over to do my make-up at any time when he is in Toronto. (I believe he is based mostly in New York.)

I am sporting Enigmatic Edward proper this minute, however you do not want me to indicate you a swatch – it is a clear lip balm. Based on the press sheet, it is made with shea butter, artificial (aka vegan) beeswax, a hyaluronic-acid matrix that features olive triglycerides and a time-release motion, a sunflower + mimosa + jojoba wax mix, and aloe vera. And it feels nice on lips, mild but moisturizing, not sticky in any respect. Even higher, it is in a stunning lip balm case you will get pleasure from whipping out in public.
