My Experience with Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Re-Shape & Re-Size Lip Liner:
The Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks all come in a simple pencil format. I love the fact that these are not wooden pencils which sometimes tend to be harsh to use on the delicate areas of the eyes. The entire pencil look the same except for the fact that the shade of the product is shown at the bottom of the pencil which does make it easy to find the shade you are looking to use.
I am not a big fan of pencils that need sharpening as I do feel lot of product gets wasted but I was willing to make an exception when I got this liner.
The shade “Pillow Talk” is most probably the best selling shade in the Tilbury lip liner range and for good reason. It is a beautiful pinkish beige shade which is the perfect nude shade for lips. This shade does not make the lips look dead or ashy. I feel this shade will flatter skin tone ranging from Light – Medium.
I am sure you all might be aware of the “Kylie Jenner” lip craze where she overdraws her lips to make them appear bigger and fuller. If you wanted to try that that trend for yourself this would be an absolute perfect product to help you achieve that look.
Pigmentation and Texture:
It is super pigmented and glides on like butter. It has a full matte finish with a slight tacky feel when you press the lips together but overall it very comfortable of the lips and as it sets it feel like it becomes one with the lips and you might even forget you have anything on them.
They are not super drying like most matte lip product are but I wouldn’t call then hydrating either. During this winter season when my lips tend to get very dry and chapped it will accentuate some fine lines but I do feel I can minimize that by exfoliating my lips before use and also not to apply too many layers of this. Even though they are little bit drying on the lips they do not suck away every hint of moisture from them and make them feel parched.
It also helps the lipstick put over it to last longer and not bleed. Also it looks very pretty with just using this lip liner with a hint of clear gloss to keep the lips hydrates and make it look fuller.
Staying power of this product is very impressive. It does not move, budge, smudge at all during the the day and they color stays put for 8 hours. I am pretty sure it would stay on longer but I never wear makeup for more than that. It will survive through drinking, snaking, eating with little to no fading as long as your food is not overly oily like our Indian foods usually are.
It has a very mild scent scent which is not too unpleasant which also fades after sometime from the lips.
Overall, Very impressed with this product. Another hit from the Charlotte Tilbury makeup range for me. I am particularly fond of this shade as I have always had difficulty finding the perfect nude shade for my skin tone. But my quest for it ends with this product.
In The LOTD , I am wearing this all over the lips with slight overdrawing over my natural lip line as my lips are naturally thin. Can you notice the effect?
