Charlotte Tilbury Lip Lustre Luxe Color-Lasting Lip Lacquers ($22 each) are high shine lip glosses that have a nice smooth finish with medium-pigment. I reviewed Blondie and Sweet Stiletto back in September and they've been regular go-to's for natural color and shine. I've since picked up more colors. I went to the Charlotte Tilbury x Nordstrom Launch at The Grove in Los Angeles where I was able to play with the whole line in person.
The Lip Lustres I have accumulated include:
- Blondie which is a shimmering champagne pink
- Sweet Stiletto which is a warm medium pink
- Seduction is a perfect nude beige cream
- High Society is a pink rose with a hint of mauve
- Ibiza Nights is a sparkling gold beige with tiny flecks of glitter
They are all really lovely colors. The ones I opted for were of course the natural shades. I find they have enough pigment to show up on the lips alone, but I really like these layered over her lip liner or lipsticks. Blondie is my personal favorite, followed by Ibiza Nights which has the prettiest sparkle. It has a tiny bit of glitter but it's not in-your-face glitzy and has a really smooth texture. Seduction is nude perfection and Sweet Stiletto is a nice warmer pink. High Society is sheerer than I had hoped it would be, but it is layerable. It's a nice warmer mauve but I prefer this one over a lipliner.
Lip swatches of the three newer shades I have (see Blondie and Sweet Stiletto here):
I'm overall really pleased with the glosses. I think the neutrals are well executed and have enough pigment to show up on the lips. The texture is nice and slightly sticky to adhere well to the lips, but they aren't tacky and feel smooth. In terms of fragrance, there is a very subtle hint of vanilla but it fades after a few minutes.
Huge thumbs up and I highly recommend checking out Blondie. Do note that these seem to have been extremely popular, I've seen websites list some shades on back order multiple times, you may have to shop around if you want more than one color.
