The Best & Worst of Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips Matte Liquid Lipsticks

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips Matte Liquid Lipstick

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips Matte Liquid Lipstick  

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Lips Matte Liquid Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.24 oz.) is described as having the glide “like a gloss” with a “soft-focus matte” finish that will “nurture your lips like a cream” while having “full coverage.” The texture of the formula was mousse-like without a lot of slip or wetness; it definitely felt more velvety and smooth with an airy quality to its “thickness.” The color spread comfortably across the lips and typically yielded semi-opaque to opaque coverage that went on evenly but sometimes settled into my lip lines.

I did not find them to be particularly long-wearing–more like a standard bullet lipstick than a more traditional liquid lipstick, which was likely due to the fact that these never fully set or dried down on me. They had a semi-matte to satin finish that wore down to a matte finish (after two to three hours). The wear ranged from three to five hours on me and was fairly comfortable, though I would not describe the formula as hydrating.

The applicator is supposed to be like a stiletto heel, and it had a very steep angle that I did not find hugged my lips as well as the brand seemed to design it to–there are a lot of other doe-foot-like applicators that are more curved now to hug the lips that have been easier to use. The steepness of Charlotte Tilbury’s applicator is what made it harder to apply for me, and I ended up using the other side for a lot of my upper lip. The formula had a sweet, vanilla scent that was slightly noticeable on the lips but no discernible taste.

Colour Pop I Think I Love You Pressed Powder Shadow Palette ($16.00 for 0.36 oz.) is the newest, limited edition pre-made palette from the brand (and as I put this post together… last night for me, this morning for you, it was still available!). It’s an incredibly warm-toned, orange-copper palette with a lot of metallic finishes. There were three mattes in the palette and one satin, while the rest were pearly to metallic.

First Impressions

The formula used in this palette felt comparable to the Pressed Powder Shadow formula I’m familiar with–soft, blendable, pigmented, and long-wearing. There were a couple of shades, like Level Up and Rule Breaker that had some larger sparkles that seemed to migrate more than ideal when blended but didn’t have tons of fallout. I think that the inclusion of the black eyeshadow (Let’s Do It) throws the palette off visually–it’s just so deep, dark, and “cool” in comparison to the rest of the palette. I think a really deep brown or plum might have given contrast and more versatility. The black eyeshadow tended to overwhelm the other shades from my experience using the palette.
