I got to check out the beautiful new lipsticks by Charlotte tilbury at a recent trip to Nordstrom. I was really interested in them, because aside from a few Instagram posts I hadn’t seen much about them.
The set of colors are fairly basic– a ton of nudes, some reds, and some deep plum shades. The packaging is beautiful (of course) and the formula seemed like a mousse, and not very drying. It reminded me a lot of the Julep It’s Whipped lipsticks and the Burberry lip velvets. However, this means it’s not going to be smear proof, transfer proof, or very long wearing. If you want a long wearing lipstick, I recommend the Too Faced melted matte lipsticks (see swatches here and here).
The real question I had was if these were going to be different then the other liquid lipsticks available for sale. The liquid lipstick market is so oversaturated, and at this point there’s a color and formula for basically everything. Are these unique in any way, or do they simply blend in?
