Lipstick is happiness in a tube!” – Charlotte Tilbury. This is my fail-safe recipe for perfect lips… Enriched with a breakthrough, secret ingredient, the Lipstick Tree, an antioxidant that naturally protects lips from UV damage and external pollution leaving them cashmere soft and irresistible. Blended with special waxes and clever light-diffusing pigments for pert, full-bodied, ultra-brilliant lips that ensure you leave a lasting impression! K.I.S.S.I.N.G is my signature range of 10 lipsticks curated with modern and classic icons in mind. It is a capsule color wardrobe of backstage nudes to red carpet reds made to suit any skin tone. Perfect, full, kissable lips really do grow on trees.
My Experience with Charlotte Tilbury Hepburn Honey K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick:
It comes housed in a rose gold tube which looks stunning in your vanity or the dressing table. The packaging of this lipstick has a vintage feel to it. The CT logo is embossed on the top of the cap and the shade name is mentioned at the bottom of the tube. The lipstick bullet is quite sturdy and would not come off its base with mild pressure. The overall feel of this rose gold packaging is luxurious and classy.
The KISSING formula from Charlotte Tilbury features an incredibly rich, pigmented and moisturising formula. This lipstick glides on effortlessly and has a beautiful sheen to it. Being a creamy formula, I think it lasts pretty well on the lips. It does not tug or pull on the lips. The texture is smooth and wears comfortably on the lips. You can easily sport this to office or pair it up with black smokey eyes.
“Hepburn Honey” is a honey-toned beige n*de color which will look good on fair to medium skin tones. It might wash out people with deeper skin tones. This is quite a unique shade in my collection which is full of bright and bold lip colors. Just one swipe is needed to build the color. Since it’s forgiving on dry lips, there’s no need to prep or exfoliate lips prior to application.
This lipstick doesn’t feather or bleed, and is perfect for everyday wear. It has a luminous finish on the lips and does not dry out your lips. It does transfer but then lasts pretty well on the lips.
The staying power is around 4 hours and then it fades away evenly. With heavy meals, it vanishes away completely. Considering it’s a creamy formula, I think the staying power is pretty good since it does leave a stain behind too.
There’s no need for a lip liner beneath too because it does not bleed out.
This KISSING formula imparts a plump effect to the lips and makes your lips appear fuller.
