Charlotte Tilbury Kim K.W. Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium, pinky beige with warm undertones and a creamy, natural sheen. This shade is part of the original Kissing formula, so it is much creamier, a little weightier, and has more slip than the Matte Revolution range. It was also hydrating and more comfortable to wear over time, though this particular shade ended up applying somewhat streaky due to the amount of slip and the lighter color. It had semi-opaque coverage that did well into my lip lines over time. On me, it lasted for three and a half hours. Chanel Destination (174) (P, $42.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar).
