Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips Liquid Lipstick Review + Swatches, Part II

Ever since I reviewed the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips Liquid Lipstick (first part seen HERE), I’ve been constantly reaching for it because there’s just something about this lipstick that makes me love it so much. Not sure what it is exactly. It must be the texture or the finish, or it could be its gorgeous shades or simply the fact that it kind of reminds me of one of my favorite comfortable liquid matte lipsticks, the Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet (seen HERE).

Regardless of whether it’s the glam packaging or the unique brush, the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips Liquid Lipstick (0.24 oz: $34) simply makes the lips look full and dramatic. At first, it starts thickly whipped and velvety upon application, and though it may take some time for it to reach its ideal matte finish, you will find that once it does, then it becomes this comfortable lightweight non-drying soft-focus matte lip color. It has very minimal transfer and the pigment lasts for several hours.


I really like the way this liquid lipstick looks on me, and since I use it a lot, I went on to purchase three more shades. The plan was to get one more shade only, which is “Too Bad I’m Bad” but heck, I needed lighter shades for this Spring and Summer, so I went ahead and got two more. See the shades and swatches below.

Rising StarNude Pink. I was worried about this shade at first, thinking this might may me look too pale or too washed-out. But it actually didn’t. It’s one of those perfect everyday nude matte lip colors and it looks even better under the sun.


Pin Up PinkCoral Pink. This shade gave me mixed feelings at first. I like its bright pink coral/neon-ish tone, but I was worried that it might look too funky on me. At first swipe, it kinda does, but as soon as it sets, the color becomes more diffused and really wearable. It’s definitely a shade for bright clear skies.


Too Bad I’m BadWarm Rosy Pink. If I love the Show Girl shade for Fall (seen HERE), then I’m definitely in love with this color for Spring and Summer. It suits well for my skin tone and it gives a nice pop of rosy pinkish-red on the lips.

Bottom line, these lipsticks can make you look put-together really quick and the quality is superb.

Charlotte Tilbury Favorites

charlotte tilbury makeup favoritesHi There. I must have jumped for joy when I found out that Charlotte Tilbury is now being carried by Sephora. That sure is very convenient for a lot of us who adore Charlotte Tilbury Makeup. So for today’s review, let’s talk about some of my favorites from this cosmetic brand. I don’t always use a lot of Charlotte Tilbury products but there are some that I really like in terms of formula and shades. Lately, there’s one Charlotte Tilbury product that I’m crazy about and I will tell you later in this review.

First up, I love the shades of the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick (0.12 oz: $34) even though I’m not really a fan of the formula, which is kind of a comfortable matte, true, but it doesn’t really last on me. However, the shades are just stunning and are really wearable with regards to my skin tone. I love the shade Pillow Talk, which is a perfect nude pink for me and is also probably a perfect universal nude shade for everyone. I also repurchased Bond Girl, which is a beautiful muted red-berry brown, and Very Victoria, which is a nude taupe. See the swatches of these two HERE. Even though the Matte Revolution Lipsticks’ formulation is a miss for me, the K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick (0.12 oz: $34) is another story. I just love how easy this lipstick glides on my lips and it’s so comfortable and hydrating. On top of that, it stays long enough on me. I bought the Stoned Rose shade which appears as a light spice rose on my pigmented lips.

The Lip Cheat Liner (0.04 oz: $22) is one of my true favorites from Charlotte Tilbury. This lip liner feels rich, creamy and velvety upon application and it sets well on the lips without budging. The shade Pillowtalk works well with almost any lipsticks.

My favorite matte lipsticks from Charlotte Tilbury in terms of the formulation is their Hollywood Lips Liquid Lipstick (0.24 oz: $34). Swatches of Dangerous Liaison and Show Girl are HERE. This matte liquid lipstick is thick and creamy and it doesn’t dry the lips, though it may take a while to set. Also, it’s super pigmented so it lasts a long time.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter in 3 Light/Medium

The one that I’ve been loving lately is the newest Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter in 3 Light/Medium (1 oz: $44). Love this product so much. It’s described as a complexion booster that is slightly tinted and has some glow that can be used as a primer, a highlighter or can be mixed with your favorite foundation. I can definitely see this as a good primer but not as a highlighter for me since the glow is very subtle, but it’s enough to give you a nice lit-from-within look. I usually use this to mix with my favorite foundation so my face won’t look flat, and the effect just makes my face look youthful and subtly glowy. I highly recommend this.
