Worth the Hype? Charlotte Tilbury Kim KW Lipstick

Worth the Hype Charlotte Tilbury Kim KW Lipstick

This stuff is hyped. Popping up in every YouTube favourites video. But is it any good? Let’s review the Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Lipstick in Kim KW, £24, and find out…Worth the Hype?

What Is It?

A pale pink nude lipstick from the brand Charlotte Tilbury.

The Good

  • Colour – such a great pinky nude.
  • Packaging – gotta love the CT rose gold tube.

The Less Good

  • Formula – pretty drying, gets a bit crumbly as it fades.

I like it, I wear it. But at the £24 price point you expect a top-notch formula in addition to the purse-pretty packaging. I wouldn’t leave the house with just this lipstick. It needs a gloss or a balm on top to be comfortable, and look good all day.

Maybe the other shades in the line are better. Pillow Talk is the latest launch and again, the hype is real. But I might pass.

Til next time,

    One of the best lipsticks I have had is the bobby brown ones! (who knew) or liquid lips from ABH 🙂

      Ooh I don’t have any Bobbi lipsticks. One for the list! Do you not find the ABH ones drying Kate? H X

        Yes they are a but I’m more of a lipgloss type, my sister uses the kylie Jenner ones but they go a bit crackly! X

    I agree, I have generally been a bit disappointed by Charlotte Tilbury Lipsticks

      Exactly! But I only ever hear and read rave reviews. H x

    Awww that’s disappointed! Was trying to save so I could splash out but I might try the Tom Ford lippies first…

      I haven’t tried Tom Ford! Come back and let me know if you get one. H x
