I got an email from Beautylish earlier saying the Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips ‘Kim K.W.’ shade was back in stock. It’s their most popular shade (of course seeing as it’s inspired by Kim Kardashian and it’s the perfect nude shade she’s known for wearing.) I heard about this collection back when it first launched…but for whatever reason didn’t really pay that much attention to it. There are literally so many collections that have this and that coming out. Sometimes it gets hard to keep track of everything. For whatever reason, this one kinda slipped on past me. Since getting that email, though, I’ve been reading some reviews and watching some Youtube videos on this collection. I’ve got to be honest… I’m kind of interested in buying a couple of shades. I really have my eye on the nude/ neutral colors rather than the bright shades. I think the bright shades are just as pretty and I’m a big fan of bright lippies, but if I’m planning on trying one or two shades, I’m most likely going for the neutral colors. They’re speaking to me more than the brights.
While I think the colors look spectacular, I’m also drawn to the packaging. (of course) I think the rose gold tube the lipstick comes in, is very elegant and classy looking. It’s definitely eye catching and chic. I just imagine reaching into my handbag to touch up my lipstick and pulling this out, it would just look so fancy. I also really love the lipstick holder the above picture is showing with all the lippies lined up. I’m pretty sure the holder came if you bought all twelve shades on the Charlotte Tilbury site. Personally I think that would look gorgeous added to my makeup collection. 🙂 I’m not interested in buying all twelve shades so I’ll just have to admire it from afar. I think it would be nice if it could be bought separately, but I get the whole marketing aspect of it. ‘Hot Lips’ collection, the holder goes with the collection… still, would be nice.
The packaging is one thing- beautiful! Look at the lipsticks themselves! I love the shape of these lipsticks, apparently they’re shaped this way for the perfect precision when applying. How ideal! As you can imagine, I love the embossed lip print on the bullet. The lipstick definitely looks high end. I think it’s super gorgeous! I feel just carrying one of these around in your purse for an evening would make any girl feel classy and sexy.
The colors I’m most interested in trying would be:
- Kim K.W. – Pale nude beige pink
- Penelope – Nude pink
- Liv It Up – Rosebud pink
- Kidmans Kiss– Rose petal pink
All of the lipstick shades are named after celebrities that Charlotte Tilbury has worked with. They retail at $32.00 and can be purchased from Beautylish & CharlotteTilbury.com
I know this collection came out a while ago. Sometime over the summer, maybe July? I think I’m going to check out a few more reviews and see what others have to say before I decide… but I think this collection really looks pretty amazing. If nothing else, I’d like to add one or two of them to my collection for the elegance alone. I want them to be just as amazing in real life as they look in the pictures.
What do you guys think? Since this collection has been out for a while, have you tried it yet? What do you think of these lipsticks? How do they perform? Let me know!
Thanks for reading! 🙂
