Charlotte Tilbury Coachella Coral Kissing Lipstick
Charlotte Tilbury Coachella Coral Kissing Lipstick

Charlotte Tilbury Coachella Coral Kissing Lipstick (£23.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brightened, medium coral-pink with a satin finish. It had rich, opaque color coverage, and the color applied evenly and smoothly. It wore well for four and a half hours, and it was neither drying nor hydrating when worn.  Urban Decay Streak (P, $22.00) is lighter. Givenchy Rose Dressing (202) (P, $36.00) is a bit darker, less matte. MAC Elegant Accent (P, $22.00) is very similar. MAC Watch Me Simmer (LE, $15.00) is darker. MAC Heart to Heart (LE, $15.00) is pinker. Guerlain Giulette (P, $49.50) has a golden shimmer. Chanel Genial (LE, $34.00) is similar. See comparison swatches.

Velvet Underground Kissing Lipstick (£23.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bold, brightened fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a satin finish. It was incredibly pigmented, and it applied and wore beautifully for a solid six and a half hours, plus it left behind a stain that lingered for a couple more hours. It was neither drying nor hydrating while worn; it seemed slightly moisturizing initially but at the four-hour mark, it just seemed neither drying nor hydrating. MAC Pleasure Bomb (LE, $15.00) is more matte, redder. Givenchy Fuchsia Irresistible (205) (P, $36.00) is slightly darker. NARS Carthage (P, $26.00) is pinker. MAC Rare Exotic (LE, $16.00) is cooler-toned. MAC Moxie (LE, $15.00) is more matte. MAC Impassioned (P, $15.00) is slightly redder. MAC Girl About Town (P, $15.00) is a touch bluer-based. See comparison swatches.

The formula is supposed to have rich, buildable color, not feather or bleed, and leave lips “soft, pert, soothed and hydrated.”  Both shades were lightly creamy–just enough to allow the lipstick to glide over the lips without catching or tugging and still keep the finish on the more satin side.  The finish of Coachella Coral was more of a true satin, where there was a soft sheen but still had a matte-ness to the look, whereas Velvet Underground was a more luminous satin but did become a truer satin after two hours of wear.  I didn’t find it to be a very hydrating formula, though it was not drying.  The formula is lightly scented with sweet vanilla but neither had a discernible taste when I wore them.
