Hey Guys!
So I have something very special to share with you today. I feel like this product is literally  my like prize possession and I have been so excited to share it with you haha!
I am sharing with you the Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips lipstick in the shade 'Electric Poppy', which is currently available from their website for £23 here.
I ended up buying this lipstick while I was in London a few months back, but wanted to wait a little while before a review so I could actually use it! I went to the Charlotte Tilbury store in Covent Garden which OMG is the most beautiful makeup shop I have ever seen!!



You can actually purchase their products in quite a few places now and also online. There is also a new counter which has opened in John Lewis in Cardiff, just a little heads up if you're like me and live in Cardiff! That counter is also SO pretty and makes you just want to buy everything haha!


The first thing that I HAVE to talk about is the packaging. Now we probably all now how much I am a sucker for packaging I am, and let me tell you this ticks all the boxes! It's actually probably the most beautiful looking lipstick that I have ever seen!
It comes in a gorgeous gold bullet which has lines going down, which I think is a classic Charlotte Tilbury look. It also has the CT on the top and has a mirrored effect all over the bullet. It's a very elegant and classy looking lipstick! (Two things of which I don't think I am!!)



I ended up buying the colour 'Electric Poppy' because I just loved the bright pink pop that it gives on your lips. There are literally so many different colours though, so if I were I would pop down to your local counter to do some swatching! This collection is inspired by celebrities, and this one is by Poppy Delevingne. They have also been created for an incredible charity, which kind of makes me feel better for buying it haha!



The texture is a matte finish which will literally last on your lips for AGES!! I am not even joking this DOES NOT budge!! I went out the other evening wearing this, I ate and I drank and when I got back it was still on!! Like I don't think any other lipstick has done that! The pigment in the lipstick also lasts and it fades very evenly on the lips. Once you put it on, it almost sets and then does not budge!
Even though it is a matte, it does not dry your lips up and is also very easy and creamy to apply. I hate those matte lipsticks which just dry your lips out so much! I love that the lips symbol is engraved on the lipstick I think it just gives it a nice touch! I also like the shape of the tip of the lipstick as it makes applying it a lot easier, especially as it is a bright colour. I would describe the colour as a bright 'poppy' pink, its kind of in-between a pink and a red!
It feels very luxurious on the lips and I always feel special when I'm carrying it around haha!
I feel like it really does hydrate the lips and gives a 'lit from within' kind of illusion. It really does complement my skin tone and adds glow to my face. It is also very buildable, and of course if you pop a little bit on then you have a more sheerer finish but with that same colour.
Now, do I think it's worth the money?! YES, of course I do!! I would much rather spend my money on a lipstick like this then any others of the same price point. I think that even though it is expensive, you get an amazing lipstick which will last you for so long. If you are wanting to treat yourself and want to go for a new lipstick then I would 100% recommend. You are totally getting your moneys worth and have this gorgeous lipstick to showcase! I also think it would make an amazing present!

Let me know if you have tried any Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks or anything else from they range! I had a little eye set for my birthday, which I REALLY love and will probably end up writing a post about! I hope you are all well, and good luck to those of you who are starting back at school/college/uni! 
Lots of love,
See you in my next post!
