Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Matte Revolution Lipstick Electric Poppy Legendary Lashes Mascara Review

The Power of Hot Lips and Legendary Lashes – Feat. Charlotte Tilbury

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 Electric Poppy Legendary Lashes Mascara ReviewThe 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 Mascara Review

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.

Awesome, right?

Yeah, but…

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?

    That’s a hot lipstick! It looks amazing on you, it really brightens your whole face.
    My hubby has nicer lashes than me. If he wore mascara they would probably look like false lashes! Me, I have lashes that insist on pointing downward, sigh…

    Agreed. For that price, there shouldn’t be a but in sight.
    Also, that part about mickey and minnie/donald and daisy being the same apart from lashes and clothing? Mind = blown lol I don’t think I’ve ever stopped to ponder this simple fact. xx

    I hate it when a mascara wand picks up too much product, it happened to me before and I always created a mess. What a pain! The lipstick is gorgeous, love it! 🙂

      Hi Yiota!
      I should stop buying lipstick in that type of shade, as I have way too many, but I can’t help it, it’s my favorite at the moment!

    That lipstick is so beautiful!!! The whole range is so pretty, I can’t decide which color to get though!

    Your minimal look is so pretty!

    It’s too bad about the mascara. I know what you mean, for $32 it should be “all that and a bag of chips”!

    That mascara has been under my radar since it launched but I think I’ll give it a miss. My lashes are short, sparse and thin and I have a feeling this mascara will give me uni-lash. That said, I do like the results on your lashes, the mascara really defined them.

    Ist it the way that usually the men have the better lashes, unless we start to cheat with curling, extensions and mascara? At least in my family it is that way, Mr. Locas lashes are perfection. Not that he would appreciate.
    And I agree: Too many buts for that price.
