Today I’m going to talk about the Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips in Super Cindy. Yes, I finally had the chance to purchase a limited edition makeup item! Usually I’m that kind of girl who hears something about an item you must have, and when I go looking for it, it’s already sold out (happened when I wanted the CT Instant In A Look Palette). I’ve been looking for the perfect “my own lip shade but better” lipstick and I think I’ve finally found it! Besides the beautiful color, I also wanted to purchase this lipstick because an amount of what you will pay for this lipstick goes to a charity which supports women. An amazing reason to get a few of these baby’s. Let’s take a look what my thoughts are!
Charlotte Tilbury is an amazing makeup artist who started her own makeup brand! The amazing packaging and the high quality items make this brand instantly a favorite among all the makeup lovers (I wrote a review about the Filmstar Bronze & Glow palette). When I heard that she released a limited edition collection of lipsticks I had to buy at least one! I purchased the Hot Lips in the color Super Cindy Matte Revolution because this was a color I don’t own yet (Secret Salma was also beautiful but I already own something similar). Super Cindy is the color that is inspired by the beautiful Cindy Crawford! When the girl at the CT counter told me she was applying the lip pencil Pillowtalk on me, the name sounded familiar. I heard many amazing things about this lip pencil so I also purchased this along the Super Cindy.
Darlings, I always say lipstick empowers confidence – it’s happiness in a tube! My beautiful NEW HOT LIPS collection has been created in collaboration with 12 incredible, brilliant, hypnotising women for an incredible charity: Women for Women International! Featuring my revolutionary, iconic square-angled tip that is designed to mimic a lip brush, as well as my CEW award-winning formula enriched with Orchid Extract, and voluminising 3D pigments for cashmere-soft lips that look lit from within. Cindy is a timeless iconic beauty. This barely-there taupey nude completely embodies her fresh-faced all-American style and harks back to the gorgeous nudes of the nineties that feel so relevant today. The perfect addition to the classic SOPHISTICATE look!
WHAT MAKES THEM MAGIC:
- €2 from each lipstick sold will be donated to Women for Women International in the first two months of sales
- Using lighting trickery, pigments and powders is a trick I use all the time on photo shoots, and have been working for years to re-create this effect in the slick of one lipstick
- Antioxidant Lipstick Tree and soothing orchid extracts soften, protect and hydrate for healthier, younger-looking lips
- 3D glowing pigments create the illusion of lit-from-within lips that appear wider and fuller
- Revolutionary, square, angled tip mimics the shape of a lip brush for precision application
- A perfect blend of oils, triglycerides and waxes glide on for buildable, long-lasting colour
Charlotte Tilbury released 12 Hot Lips lipsticks. They have the same packaging as the K.I.S.S.I.N.G. lipstick collection. This tube is absolutely gracious, I need more of these lippies in my life (while I was writing this post, I ordered my second Hot Lips lipstick in the color Very Victoria, inspired by Victoria Beckham). Honestly, the rose gold packaging makes every makeup item gorgeous and irresistible!
Tadaaa! The kiss stamp on this lippie is so adorable, a must have for every makeup lover! When I opened the tube I fell immediately in love with the total look and presentation of this limited edition item. The box and the lipstick makes it all worth it. I keep all the boxes of my Charlotte Tilbury items because I like to store my items in it. The shape of the lipstick is square at the top, which makes it easier to apply your lipstick perfect at the bow and the lines of your lips, no lip pencil needed!
Super Cindy is honestly the most beautiful color that almost look similar like my own lip color! A perfect everyday shade which makes your own lip color pop! When I first swatched it on the back of my hand at the counter I found it a bit too orange. But when I applied it on my lips (with the lip pencil Pillowtalk) it looked amazing. A shade I don’t own yet and even without the Pillowtalk lip pencil my lips looked great! the shape of the lipstick makes it easy to apply it. I only used Pillowtalk to line my lips, not to fill them in so the Super Cindy color will stand out more.
The matte formula doesn’t make your lips look dry at all, it even gives your lips a kind of hydrated feeling without the shiny effect. What makes me even more satisfied about this lipstick is that it lasts a very long time. Over time it doesn’t feel dry and when I re-apply the lipstick it still feels great without making it look patchy. When I re-apply the lipstick I literally only need one swipe to fully cover my lips!
I used Pillowtalk to line my lips and Super Cindy to fill it in.
Overall I am really happy with the Hot Lips in the color Super Cindy! I even purchased the color Very Victoria right now while I’m writing this review. The color Super Cindy matches great with my skintone and it is a color I don’t own yet. The intensity of the lipstick is amazing, only one swipe with the bullet is enough to cover your lips. The long-lasting time is really good for a matte lipstick, it doesn’t dry out the lips and it stays good after a day. I only need one touch up to make it look fresh again, like I just applied it on my lips.
I’ve been a liquid lipstick girl for more than a year now, but this lipstick changed my whole perspective of long-lasting lipstick and being matte without dry cracking lips. I’m being really honest to you, this matte formulation is amazing! I can recommend this lipstick to the people out there who are looking for a great everyday shade (on the official Charlotte Tilbury, you can see this color on different skintones, and they all look great!). It is long-lasting and it is easy to use. When you purchase this limited edition item in the first 2 months after the release, €2,- will be donated to the Women to Women International. So you will make yourself happy with purchasing this beautiful limited edition color and you will support a charity! Good reason to take a look (;
You can get your own Hot Lips Lipstick at the official Charlotte Tilbury webshop for €30,-.
