I am insanely obsessed with Charlotte Tilbury products! When I got to know that she was launching her new lipstick collection, I was eagerly waiting for it to go live and order. And yes I did, probably the entire collection!! Yes, I am that insane about her lip products! 😉 The best thing about buying her lipsticks is that every $2 from each lipstick sale would be donated to women’s international organisation in the first two months of the sale, and that’s awesome! The shade that I would be reviewing today is called “Carina’s Love” from her Hot Lips collection. This shade is inspired by Carina Lau.
I always lipstick empowers confidence – it’s happiness in a tube! My beautiful New Hot Lips collection has been created in collaboration with 12 incredible, brilliant, hypnotizing women! Featuring my revolutionary, iconic square-angled tip that is designed to mimic a lip brush, as well as my CEW award-winning formula enriched with Orchid Extract, and voluminizing 3D pigments for cashmere-soft lips that look lit from within. Inspired by Chinese actress Carina Lau, this screen siren red is so hot it can be worn on its own. Carina’s natural Asian beauty is accentuated when she wears gorgeous red lips, a colour that in Chinese culture symbolizes good fortune and joy. The perfect addition to the glamorous BOMBSHELL look!
What Makes Them Magic:
- Using lighting trickery, pigments and powders is a trick I use all the time on photo shoots, and have been -working for years to re-create this effect in the slick of one lipstick
- Antioxidant Lipstick Tree and soothing orchid extracts soften, protect and hydrate for healthier, younger-looking lips.
- 3D glowing pigments create the illusion lit-from-within lips that appear wider and fuller.
- Revolutionary, square, angled tip mimics the shape of a lip brush for precision application.
- A perfect blend of oils, triglycerides and waxes glide on for buildable, long-lasting colour.
- Ideal for a buildable and long-lasting, cashmere-soft matte finish.
My Take on Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Carina’s Love Luminous Modern-Matte Lipstick:
Charlotte Tilbury’s packaging is on point. The lipstick looks beautiful, elegant, chic and classy! Each and every Charlotte Tilbury lipstick is housed in a beautiful rose gold tube with her initials embossed on the top. The shade name has been mentioned at the bottom of the tube. The packaging feels luxe and weighted. The lipsticks in the “Hot Lips” range have been embossed with a lip print on the bullet, isn’t that cute!<3
“Carina’s Love” is a siren red color in the luminous modern matte lipstick formula. The luminous modern matte formula offers intense colour payoff with incredibly lightweight feel and a beautiful soft matte finish.
Even though it’s a matte formulation, it doesn’t dry out your lips. Carina’s Love is a combination of both cool and warm tones and that makes it suitable to wear on all skin tones. The luxe comfortable matte finish makes it an excellent edition to one’s “red lip wardrobe.”
There’s a mild fragrance of vanilla. Also, worth mentioning is that these lipsticks from the Hot Lips range last better than the ones from the “KISSING” range. This lipstick lasts for h to hours on me.
Pros of Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Carina’s Love Luminous Modern-Matte Lipstick:
- Every $2 from the lipstick sale would be donated to the “Women for Women” International organization.
- Intense colour payoff with incredibly lightweight feel.
- Lasts pretty well being a creamy formula.
- Vanilla scent.
- Feels lightweight on the lips.
- Long lasting.
