The great CT has landed. Last week, makeup-loving-slash-beauty-hoarding humanoids went frantic with the official launch of Charlotte Tilbury line in the US market. As a self-confessed unofficial representative of the Lipstick Junkie Rehabilitation Program, I blatantly broke my no-purchase vow which you and I know only exist in the deepest recesses of my hypothalamus, #gotcha
Okay enough of the insanity and let’s get down to ‘biz. At $32 each, these lipsticks a.k.a KISSING Fallen From The Lipstick Tree are sold in ten shades ranging from lightest nude to darkest red. I purchased Hepburn Honey (peachy beige) and Night Crimson (plum red) from Beautylish, which by the way has great customer service and fast shipping!
Glistening in rose gold, the packaging is reminiscent of old glamour Hollywood. Not the fanciest I’ve seen but charming enough to adorn someone’s vanity. The top cap has CT initials while the tube itself has Charlotte Tilbury written in a wrap-around manner.
Quality-wise, these lippies are creamy, hydrating, slightly luminous, and with intense color pay-off. The overall feel reminds me of Tom Ford Lip Color, luxurious is the word baby. It has decent longevity, I would say four to five hours depending on what you eat or do.
Tell me if you can relate: Finding the best nude lipstick is more challenging than red. Go too light and you look like a corpse. That’s why I’m more than happy to have found my perfect shade in Hepburn Honey! It’s peachy beige, I call it my natural lips but better.

Of course you can relate: Plum exists in hundred and one shades just like red. If you don’t own one yet, I say go out of your comfort zone woman. Plum exudes mystery and seduction, more like a secret ammunition. Night Crimson is red plum with cool undertone. It’s a great fall/winter shade which I don’t mind wearing year-round.

Will you be picking up these lippies? Or better yet, are you one of the makeup-hoarding humanoids? What did you haul then?
