Charlotte Tilbury is one of those brands that pops up all over my Insta feed but I’ve never really been able to afford, yet this hasn’t stopped me stalking their website everyday to lust over everything. During Christmas we visited my nan up in Liverpool and I was beside myself when I found out the John Lewis there has a Charlotte Tilbury counter, so as you can imagine this was the first place I headed. With A LOT of self restraint (and the fact the bronze and glow was out of stock), I managed to narrow it down to a handful of cult items.
Amelia Liana is the main reason I went for the Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk. She swears by it and I think her lips always look so voluptuous and perfect, so I couldn’t resist picking this up. Plus I’ve recently developed a soft spot for a decent lip liner and you can never have too many! Next up of course I picked up a lipstick – I went for the Matte Revolution Lipstick in Glastonberry which is a gorgeous deep blackcurrant which really compliments my skin tone. Finally I wanted to pick up one of the eyeshadow quads which I have heard EVERYONE rave about so much! I didn’t quite realise how many there were and I was torn between the Dolce Vita and the Vintage Vamp but I decided on the former because I think I will get more wear out of it, and fell in love with the top right reddish-brown shade as soon as I swatched it.
I was also lucky enough to receive the trio of lipstick charms from my amazing boyfriend as one of my Christmas presents which are so dinky and cute and I am totally obsessed with. Its safe to say next time I am anywhere near a counter a full sized So Marilyn will be making its way into my make up bag, along with the Filmstar Bronze and Glow and of course the Bar of Gold!
