Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Matte Revolution Lipstick in Electric Poppy and Legendary Lashes in Black Vinyl
Think about it: what’s the only difference between Mickey and Minnie Mouse, and Donald and Daisy Duck? – I mean, other than clothing…
Yep, you guessed it right: the girls have long, fluttery lashes.
And it makes sense, methinks. In my opinion, good lashes (or legendary lashes, like Charlotte Tilbury would call them) are the most beautifying feature a woman can have. Well, good lashes, and hot lips, too.
Unlike Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck, I have short, unimpressive lashes and 100% non-pigmented lips with no defined edge that blend into the rest of my face, but a couple of coat of the right mascara and a quick swipe of a beautiful lipstick can really make a HUGE difference.
In the after picture, I’ve just added the Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Matte Revolution Lipstick in Electric Poppy and the Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lahses mascara.
The power of (minimal) makeup, huh!
Now let’s have a closer look at the two products that worked wonders on my face, shall we?
Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Matte Revolution Lipstick in Electric Poppy ($32)
$2 from every Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips lipstick sold will be donated to Women for Women International in the first two months of sales, so for once someone else will benefit from my frivolous purchase as well!
The Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Electric Poppy from the new Hot Lips collection is exactly my kind of lipstick. The shade is that warm type of fuchsia I’ve been extremely obsessed with lately, and the formula is that comfortable type of matte I’ve been obsessed with for the past couple of years.
As you can imagine, I LURRRVE it to the moon and back!
Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes in Black Vinyl ($32)
I’ve had the Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes in Black Vinyl for a while, but didn’t talk about it before because I didn’t really have a fully formed opinion. After using it for over a month I can now tell you that I like it, but I don’t love it.
First of all, let me tell you why I like it.
Well, it’s exactly my kind of mascara – very dramatic and volumizing. Think Too Faced Better Than Sex, but blacker and more lengthening.
But, for starters, the wand picks up way too much product. For the first week, the mascara was impossible to use unless I cleaned up the brush with tissue every time. Now, as you can see in the picture above, excess product tends to build up at the base of the brush (and sometimes it still builds up all over the brush like it did when I started using it), which will make lashes super clumpy unless you clean it up (which I find very wasteful).
Another little issue I’m having with the Legendary Lashes is that, in Bologna’s very hot and humid weather, it smudges pretty easily and transfers onto the brow bone. Though, if you live in a less humid climate and/or have more space between your lashes and brow bone, you may not have this problem.
So yeah, I like the Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes and think it has great potential, but for 32 pretty dollars I also think there should be no ‘buts’, nam sayin’?
Have you tried these or other Charlotte Tilbury products? What was your experience? And what do you think is the most beautifying makeup product?
