Guest Blogger Week: Day 5: Claire’s Perfect Nude Lip Combo? – Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect and Pillow Talk

Hi,

First of all thank you so much Molly for having me – I’m Claire from Beauty Barmy Bird *waves*

I am obsessed with a nude lip – I own more lipsticks of the nude lip variety than I care to admit to yet I’ve still not found THE ONE. I think its pretty hard to find the perfect shade that has a good texture and lasts for daaaays!
My quest came to an end when I stopped by Harvey Nichols in Leeds with a couple of my blogger friends earlier this year, we ended up at the Charlotte Tilbury counter and we suddenly turned into 5 year olds at Cadbury World (!) quite literally we were jumping up and down swatching everything on offer. The ladies working on the counter are some of the nicest, most approachable I’ve ever met and would highly recommend a visit.
I ended up buying two lip products – A lipstick in Bitch Perfect from the K.I.S.S.I.N.G range (£23.00) and a lip lner in Pillow Talk from the Lip Cheat range (£16.00)

The lipstick comes in a stunning rose gold bullet that has a reassuring click when closed and the attention to detail is spot on. The shade itself is a pink – nude so I imagine it would suit a wide range of skin tones. The formula is quite firm but not too firm (if that makes sense) it applies smoothly and doesn’t drag on the lips. It formulated with Charlotte’s secret ingredient which protects against UV and external pollution to keep lips looking and feeling kiss worthy. I find the lipstick with a layer of the lip cheat underneath lasts well throughout the day and I don’t need to reapply until about 3-4pm on a work day so it certainly will withstand some drinks and a meal. As the lipstick contains light diffusing pigments it really gives the lips a plump, full look which doesn’t look fake or too much. Just your lips but even better.

The lip cheat comes in a standard pencil form with the Charlotte Tilbury branding. It is gorgeous texture that glides easily onto the lips and is perfect if you prefer to slightly over line your lips as its doesn’t feather out in the lines on your skin. The lip cheat is also waterproof, making it perfect for a night out or on a holiday.image2

The two shades combined give me the perfect nude lip looks without making me look drained and ill – I think this is down to the pink tones as anything with a peachy tone tends to make me look a little worse for wear. I’ve already re-purchased both of these recently so I can honestly say they are worth the quite expensive price tag and the lipstick is just in the most glorious packaging!
I’ve included a swatch of the lipstick and the lip liner below which was taken in natural day light with no flash to give you an idea. If you find pink tones don’t work for your skin tone and peach works for you then maybe have a look at the shade in Nude Kate (apparently this is the same shade Kim K wears)
