A couple of weeks ago I reviewed Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in B*tch Perfect and it wasn’t quite perfection! The color is super pretty and peachy, but the texture was super gritty and just not up my alley.
It’s a pretty good sign that a beauty product isn’t so good if I take the time and effort to return it. I mean really, I buy and keep sooooo many things even if I’m not that into them. In this case I made the return and gave the Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G line a second chance.
Thankfully Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Coachella Coral is sooooooooooo much better than it’s predecessor. Oh, so much better. The lipstick is creamy, the metallic packaging is dreamy and I’m a happy lipstick lady.
My lips, however, tell a different tale. Every once in a while I go through a season of severe lip chapping and we are here now. It’s okay – I just keep my lips balmed while things run their course.
In other fancy lipstick news, makeup artist and beauty guru Lisa Eldridge released a line of lipsticks and I totally had to order one. I have to admit the recent Jaclyn Hill lipstick calamity made me a bit wary, but with Lisa’s credentials I figured it was a safe bet. There are six lipsticks total, including one inspired by the Audrey Hepburn lipstick Lisa purchased at auction. When all things were said and done and the British pounds were translated to US dollars and shipping was included, I paid a little over $36 for one tube of lipstick. I’m excited to receive it and share it with you!
