Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect Kissing Lipstick Review, Photos, Swatches

Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect Kissing Lipstick
Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect Kissing Lipstick

Charlotte Tilbury Bitch Perfect Kissing Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is lightly muted, light-medium coral with a hint of pink and warm undertones, and it has a lightly luminous finish–a little more of a sheen than satin. NARS Julie (P, $32.00) is pinker. NARS Brigitte (P, $32.00) is pinker. NARS Juliette (P, $32.00) is darker, brighter. MAC Modern Wow! (LE, $16.00) is brighter. Bite Beauty Centifolia (LE, $28.00) is warmer, brighter. NARS Descanso (LE, $25.00) is more matte. YSL Peach Passion (13) (P, $34.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Reel Sexy (LE, $16.00) is slightly pinker. MAC Razzledazzler (P, $16.00) is a touch warmer/darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The Kissing lipstick formula is supposed to have rich color, a luminous finish, and leave lips “soft, pert, soothed and hydrated.” It had mostly opaque color coverage, and the finish was true to luminous–a light shine that wasn’t glossy but more than satiny, which gave the lips a fuller, smoother appearance overall. The consistency is lightly creamy so that it glides on easily while depositing even color coverage without tugging or dragging on the lips. This particular shade lasted for four hours, though it was neither hydrating nor drying while I wore it. It had a vanilla scent but no discernible taste. You can read my reviews for other shades here.

The brand has launched in the U.S. today at Nordstrom, Beautylish, NET-A-PORTER, Bergdorf Goodman.

Bitch doesn’t seem like a very fitting name for such a sweet and pretty shade! I love it though – light peachy coral shades like this are so gorgeous. And it seems like the formula is a real winner too. I may have to check this one out!

So glad you listed MAC Razzledazzler as a dupe, Christine! I really don’t need another lipstick at the moment, especially since I have my eyes on the new NARS lipsticks. Which do you personally prefer, the NARS Audacious lipsticks or this Charlotte Tilbury formula? Thanks!

Argh.. I gravitate to shades like this: I have Bite Centifolia and YSL Peach Passion, but I do not wear them that often as they have a tendency to wash me out a bit. YSL Peach passion is definitely better than Centifolia which pulls too orange for me. I’m passing on this and the argh..similar shades in the new NARS formula.

Gorgeous! I can see where this color would look great with the Sweet Stiletto lip gloss. I like the name. I assumed it was a play on the phrase, “pitch perfect.”

I think there totally needs to a T-shirt that same color that says “Bitch Perfect,” to go with the lipstick.

I love the idea of her makeup, and I might splurge on a blush, but I can’t see myself shelling out $32 for a lipstick that doesn’t blow my socks off (or have my daughter’s name–dang Nars). The finish of Love Glow might be enough to sway me. It looks absolutely gorgeous on your skin! I was so tempted by the magic cream, but it’s another thing I can’t see splurging on when I have so many other primers, moisturizers, and serums that leave my skin with the same effect. I’ll have to wait to see some more reviews of her line to see if there’s anything I can’t live without.

The name!!! I think this is great — the shade and formula sound lovely, and I’m always happy to see the word “bitch” being reclaimed. Give me all of the musical puns and “bitches get stuff done” one-liners!

(It’s weird to see it as the name of a luxury lipstick, but — I feel like it’s very Charlotte of her? And, dude, I’d happily pay $32 for “bitch perfect” before forking over $39 for Nars’ G-Spot!)

I love the name. I like how the colour looks on you, and in the swatch, and in the bullet, (un)fortunately it’s not a colour I can rock unless I go for a zombie look.

This looks like such a perfect shade! Strange that it looks so much more rosy than peach in other swatches though. Charlotte Tilbury isn’t sold in the Netherlands (yet), so I can’t see it in person before I buy it. I will probably still take the plunge and order it online, because in these photos it looks too good to pass up!

I was very disappointed as I just received my Bitch Perfect lipstick yesterday, the color is nothing like the swatches on this website. it is more of a nude, pinky beige color and no coral at all. : (

Hi Christine, do you have these photos swatched on your lips? How come i dont see those pages and i see people commenting how beautiful it looks on you. Which do you prefer more- bitch perfect or confession? Thank you so much!
